If the requirement for them to be above 4.0 then yes they need to be 4.0 or above at the off

I only do b365 offer if I am actually going to be at home in the afternoon when the racing is happening anyway
@Jon im going to stop banging on about this now but I have one last question. How do you manage to do your refunds in the morning? Do you not need to be monitoring in case you need to spend a free bet??
I dabbled yesterday to no avail.
Got gubbed from betsafe.
But did get a £20 refund from skybet from the day before, so made my daily target!

If I place my bets this morning with betfair sportsbook / paddypower / coral / skybet and win any free. I don't have to use them the same afternoon, I can use them the next day without any trouble

Does anyone do odds boosts? How do you make money from them? PA says to calculate as a 'normal' but then do you not make any money if your lay stake wins? Only if your back wins and therefore the boost has been implemented?

Yes you just put the figures with the boosted odds into the calculator in normal mode and PA will tell you what to lay to guarantee a profit win or lose.

Just another question about these odd boosts (sorry!) I'm looking at WH as an example but whenever I add anything to my betslip it's not showing me the boost button.

Is it only for certain matches or markets? I thought the rules said any sport any match?
Would really appreciate some clarification on this as I'm not finding PA very helpful in this instance :(

They give you one boost a day, but its only on mobile so that might be why you're not seeing it. Although it can also work if you use their mobile website from your computer. https://mobet.williamhill.com/ Its only a tiny boost though.

Very helpful

Do you know how to change the odds to decimal on the mobile site link you sent?

Look for a button marked settings. It should be in there although it seems to pop up in different places on different versions of the site.

I just do whatever appears in the Reloads section that i fancy doing..

I only do horseys at the weekend though

Oh and I tend to run around 5-6 accas a week which are a mixture of 'normal' and 'lock in'

I use the app and think it's at the bottom somewhere... but of course they use the teeniest tiniest font so you can barely see it!

Odds boosts are annoying me already. Even on like a 95% match between bookie and exchange PA calculator is still saying I'll loose a couple of pence.

I'm calculating them as normal - £10 stakes and the boost always takes my back odds above my lay but obviously not enough for me to bother to make any money? Child has just gone to sleep so I'm going to look at oddsmatcher etc tonight and see if there are any that will actually get me a profit.

I feel like I'm missing something really obvious. Don't get how people are saying they're making a couple £ per boost
