    Lucky you didn't back her then ;)

    Eddie Sherry looks a safe bet for TheBrits,
    but then again that whinger SamS, seems to have done well at the Grammys.

    Roll on the Oscars...

    I only put €10 on birdman in the end. Which to be honest is about as big as I go. I kinda have to thank the OP if it does come off. I probably wouldn't have given it much thought if it weren't for this thread.

    nice one mate. are u thinking of throwing a fiver on boyhood at 2/1 to get ur stake back? in the media it seems its 50/50 with boyhood still favoured so the odds dont seem to be quite right yet still

    I take it you are joking but the world will have to start to turn the other way around before that will happen.

    Oh and would Boyhood be a good bet now?

    Just thinking that seems Grand Budapest and Birdman are both FOX films that it might dilute their vote

    He posted up a bet for Mrs Brown Boys to be most watched show on Christmas day.The bet came in but some of us took it with bet365 who didn't pay out for about 2 weeks after.He was very condescending to the few of us that took it with bet365 and posted some distasteful link putting us down.He was banned for a month shortly after.

    Still have to watch boyhood then decide later but id say it going be between these two.

    Only thing of interest (numerical wise) is Whiplash returning < x125 of investment,
    pity there isn't a 1/4 available for 2nd/3rd places.
    jazz drums, cool like.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,070 ✭✭✭the whole year inn


    Right I watched all but Selma for this category and Boyhood is by far the worst,if its just the gimmick and it wins then Id be very surprised.The movie is one long boring pile of sh!t.Birdman is by far a better movie and I really enjoyed it and I think my self it going to be between Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel which I really enjoyed aswell and at 50s its worth a 10er.

    Whiplash is a decent movie and JK Simmons was unreal in it checked the odds on best supporting and he is odds on.
    Best actor I see they have Eddie Redmayne as odds on winner,I wasn't blown away by his performance and i think Michael Keaton is in with a real chance here.He was great in it and I m going to put 20 on at 3/1.

    When the Golden Globes are finished Betfair will be putting a market up on their exchange.

    When you see 10k on it that's me. A nice easy 2000 net profit in a day.

    When I go in, its balls deep.

    You heard it here first.

    Thank me later.

    How I laughed.

    Any one watch film 2015 on BBC,they where discussing the best picture and they where drolling over Boyhood and both said they wanted Boyhood to win and it should win.
    Has anyone in here watched boyhood,what do they think,the reviewers where going on about the tone of the movie and how they kept the tone through out even over the long period of time.I still hate it tho.

    you put me off watching it,didnt want to waste almost three hours of my life :D

    I have to back it at 13/8 though


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 9,586 ✭✭✭4068ac1elhodqr


    3hrs? Sounds like a documentary series.
    Wouldn't even spark much interest if stuck on one of those 24hr long-hauler flights.
    1'40" is about right.

    It just goes through his life from a kid to when he leaves for college thats it.

    Yea, I admire the concept behind it and I probably will watch it but it wouldn't interest me I must say.

    ALSO, as much as I'd never want to see anyone loosing a bet I can't but help smile thinking about the poor OP going postal with worry. Mainly because the way he came across following the mrs brown's bet.

    Having said all that, I reckon boyhood will win


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 9,586 ✭✭✭4068ac1elhodqr


    Boyhood drifting out as much as x2.77, but still an even capture of the bets with the Birdman (short as x1.4) with both 35% each.

    Mrs Brown to win again next year ;)

    too bad your broke! how many losing tips in a row have you given now? and if this gets beat another. surprised your still posting on here after your big brother failure. be careful or the mods will see this is just another one of your fake accounts. your like the majority of gamblers, myself included. like us you wouldnt pick a winner out of your arcehole. nothing wrong with that...but claiming they are certs and "the inside info" has already decided who wins is ridiculous.

    well done on your mrs browns boys bet but we saw no screenshot so we all probably had more on than u. after all u told us ur on the dole and re-use postage stamps and envelopes in other threads last year.after you embarrassed yourself mocking others i doubt anybody followed a tip you posted again. a few of us will back boyhood tonight at 13/8. might stick 20 on...i dont have to lie about my stakes to feel good about myself in a forum.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,804 ✭✭✭✭mailburner


    holding off till later myself
    might hit 2/1 yet, already 2.88 with matchbook


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,277 ✭✭✭poisonated


    I think it deserves to win!


  • Registered Users Posts: 691 ✭✭✭ianburke


    i stuck a tenner on there at 7/4 365 and will do a fiver later maybe if i dont forget. it would be funny if a complete outsider won it. still amazed it was like 1/20 a few wks back and now nearly 2/1. all because of those other mickey mouse awards that were being handed out. just get the feeling the market has over-reacted to that and boyhood should be 6/5 or thereabouts

    Absolutely no idea what you're on about, you are either confused or low on medication.

    I've never placed a bet on Mrs brown. ever. But will consider it for next year (as part of multi-bet). As my name suggests I'm a successful accumulator and rarely if ever bet singles, especially on novelties.

    I'll put your comments down to a case of mistaken identity and am sure the moderators can guide you further with any future queries on your pre-emptive misjudgments...


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,051 ✭✭✭keysersoze0330


    Accumulator is not the Op.

    which site/bookies allows you to put novelties as an accumulator? always thought it was just singles?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 9,586 ✭✭✭4068ac1elhodqr


    Stanjames.
    Occasionally others, but varies with markets.
    I have maybe x10 but only use 2-3 as the main accounts.
    Always keen to hear if any of the newer ones offer such like.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 9,586 ✭✭✭4068ac1elhodqr


    As mentioned once before if the pope had of been called 'pete' instead of the current chap, would have rounded up a nice low stake very high yield multi-accum.

    Aim high, shoot low.

    If Newcastle beat Man City I'm sure a lot of people would have won their accumulators also, instead they lost 5-0.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 9,586 ✭✭✭4068ac1elhodqr


    I'd have slight sympathy for the op though, as he once mentioned these novelty's are great crack and do indeed involve very complex contextual factors, rather than just goal scoring. Likely these special markets will be restricted further in years to come due to risks to books.

    Bear in mind I missed out on the whole mrs brown (charade)event. Then again would never go deep on single x1.2, sure that's just silly :)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 9,586 ✭✭✭4068ac1elhodqr


    Wouldn't have got EP x80 or so for NC to win though eh?
    Pete was 'slightly' prophesied and became a favourite also, so carried some weight with it.

    Ah now I've heard it all
    bookies love guys like you, singles the only way to go

    Cool, like them too, apart from a couple with their limits/restrictions placed.

    Next up (novelty wise) is Eddie sherry for the Brits. Only logic behind this is SamSmithy wouldn't sell out somewhere croker in a rush, and Sam did well enough already in the recent US gongs. Ed's showing 75% popularity of bets on this. + don't like Sam's whinny voice much.

    Simple logic for this one, but not a cert by any means. Ideally just a harmless x1.5 multiplier add-on to bunch of other safe ones...
