Bodog odds are up; Rob/Amber are the favorites and Charla/Mirna have the worst odds.  ???

I was contemplating an AR11 bet at bodog.com until I actually called them to find out about the mechanics of how they oeprate. There is no current problem with it, but there is risk for the payout in May. They have strained financial relationships exemplified by banks not working with them to accept checks to start an account balance. What does that tell you? The BODOG solution is to waive all fees for credit card transactions and other forms of cash-equivalents. They would be out of business if they could not use cash-equivalents. On the payout side, with a $50 maximum bet, the money transfer payout fee is $20. They are currently waiving that too, but are not guaranteeing anything about how long that will last. My guess is that by mid May that waiver will have disappeared and you will have $20 deducted from any winnings.

As far as the odds go, theirs are pretty bad. They compensate a little with a 15% account starting bonus on your first bet.

Caveat Emptor(and it you don't know what this means go to a Latin dictionary)!

Do you know of another reliable IT betting parlor? I have already placed a bet at bodog with CC and the only problem, so far, was that they would not allow me to bet the 10% "bonus."  Therefore I have a whopping $5.00 balance to bet on something else.

Thanks apskip for that overview. I'm not one to turn down free money and am willing to bet a little, so if anyone figures out a good way to try this, please share! I'd like some TARcon $$$.... (It is legal, right?)

I placed my bet using the credit card option to make a "deposit" peach. There is some information that must be faxed to them to verify that you are the owner of the credit card used.

Thanks Big Papi!

Is it like horse racing? Can I bet on a "win, place, show"? :lol:

It is legal and you can bet only on the winner. To create the almost-equivalent of Win/Place/Show you have to make 3 separate bets on teams to win. You can only win on one of them.

Can someone clear something up for me?

I deposited $50 and bet it on the team that is on the winner on the list sent to puddin (hopefully its right!! if not, I'm happy with the other two winners so it's all good). 

Now it says I have $5 left, which I guess is the bonus they gave me when I registered.  Am I allowed to bet that $5 dollars on the same team again, even though I did the maximum bid of $50?  Is it against the rules to bet the $5 on a different team, thus having seperate bets on 2 teams?

thanks in advance, im stupid when it comes to these odds things...

I heard that they don't let you bet the bonus money.  Is that stupid or what?  Maybe I misunderstood.  Good Luck
