Mistakes in odds offered

    I have just noticed what appears a blatant mistake in the odds offered on a bet, as it a first goalscorer and anytime goalscorer in a match have been quoted with the same price. If I take the odds on the latter, can the bookie comeback and claim it as a mistake and therefore not allow the bet or could they potentially limit me or something like that?

    They may also let it run - Paddypower have done that in the past. They fixed the odds before the event but let the bets run even though the odds were blatantly wrong. It was a politics bet and their liability was less than a grand so I guess they were ok to take the hit. Might not have been so accommodating if there was a large liability !
