Wrong, most sites had the best as 'top scorer' such as betfair, and not golden shoe winner. Bets are split into 4, so if you had 40/1 you get 10/1

Good to know its divided up then even if that pointless 3rd / 4th playoff is going to end up costing me the best part of a ton by letting those two score. Im not happy about Sneijder been given two ogies come to think of it either. Oh why couldnt that little urchin Villa just bag that pen against Honduras!

The bookies are paying out on top scorer at full odds but with the stake quartered. It benefits the bookie slightly as they don't have to return quite as much due to keeping three quarters of your initial stake.

Any golfing bets for the open?

Just read in an old copy of the sun that paddy power will do 6/1 each way if woods finishes in the top 7, you reckon he could?

Woods is favourite with most at about 6/1, so getting ew on that is pretty good. It's crazy that he is favourite though, given current form.

I've stuck a bit on Rose (20/1) due to his current form.

Hills were offering 7/1 on Woods to win the tournament this morning. I'm sure this prediction will comeback to haunt me but as he hasn't practised on a Links course at all prior to the Open (preferring to spend time with his family apparently) and he's using a new putter I doubt he'll be there or thereabouts by tournament end. Paddy Power are paying out quarter odds on the top 7.

I really fancy Liverpool today, am gonna have a few quid on them at 7/5. B365 will refund losing stakes too if the game ends 0-0.

Gone for Cardiff, Arsenal, Everton, Chelsea, Swindon, Sunderland, got Bellamy, Droghba and Bent all as anytime goal scorers too.

Then stuck a couple of quid on a few horses, the first of which just lost. Sad
