hi everyone..my free £30 bet has just come through on Betfred. I chose a game from the P/A software, and the bet is on a draw....
Is it ok to bet on a draw, as i read somewhere that they dont like you doing this?......it just seems the only match i can bet on with suitable odds and not too high liability...Many thanks

Sure, it's fine.

I prefer to bet on the draw because I think it wins at the exchange more often ;D

oooh, thanks for the tip..just one more question if thats ok, the liability is £69, after i placed the bets i noticed my betfair balance has gone down from £110 to £40 ish....so do they take off the liability as the £69 is in red next to the odds, or have i gone wrong again?

[member=5763]JoannaF[/member] Yes, they remove the liability amount whilst your bet is open, because that's the amount you will lose if the bet loses at the exchange....of course this is covered by the winnings you'd get at the bookies if the bet wins there.
