I know ya gonna think I need committing but with all the moves Cleveland is making plus their plethora of high end draft picks 1 & 4 first round for a start… thought their massive prices I saw a week or so ago of either 200 or 250/1 was worth a free bet. Seems the books have paid attention to as nearly all the books have cut Cleveland’s odds massively to between 66/1-100/1.
Any way on OddsChecker 3 books was still listed as having the Browns @ 200/1 so as one of them books (BetBright) I had a free bet to use up within 6 days had a squiz at their NFL Super Bowl market prices which when I looked all their prices on all other teams bar 1 (which was the Chiefs at 33’s) was way skinnier than other books are so decided hell I’ll do the £10 on the Browns and forget about it as it’s a free bet I need to use or loose within 6 days and just should they do a Leicester City miracle season then could look forward to a nice 2K payout come next Feb!
WELL HELL NO - as when I tried to get on I got hit with this:
Are you kidding me - I got them on chat and there service advisor said nope that’s their traders prerogative - that’s the max their traders will allow - I asked them to check and that was the answer.
So a so called professional bookmaker does not want to take a £10 bet that would expose them to a 2K loss maximum in nearly a years time on a team that didn’t win a game last season plus is so unlikely to get anywhere near the Post Season let alone the Super Bowl but if did could be laid off for big odds still much nearer to post season (so in several months time).
No wonder I very rarely use BetBright - damn - why even have such a high price if you don’t really want anyone to take it?
Well I got them to spilt my free £10 bet into two free bets one for £2.50 and one for £7.50 so I could still do the Browns @ 200’s for the £2.50 they permit and as I mentioned earlier stuck the other £7.50 on the Chiefs @ 33’s as there the only other team that’s a decent price on BB right now imo.
