Sportsbook hung 1000-1 odds on wrong Watson for Masters

04.11.2012     11:42 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
This one had absolutely no chance of not happening. British sportsbook Coral got Bubba Watson confused with Tom Watson – we assume it was a miscalculation based on the name not visual characteristics. So Bubba's odds to win the Master were offered at 1000-1 as oppose to the accurate market price of 40-1. Naturally some dude chap named Lee Beardmore (WOW that sounds really British!) thought he was getting a great deal, bet Bubba at 1000-1, and is furious the sportsbook won't honor it. Sure he’s got a point, but every bettor should know that 99 times out of 100, the books win these type of arguments. Heck, this type of thing happens twice a week at Pinnacle.


"I was really excited when I went to collect my winnings because I've never won that much before. But when I found it was a mistake I didn't know what to think.

"I was gutted and angry because I don't know why I should be punished for someone else's mistake.

"I put good money on a bet which I thought was legitimate and now it turns out it's not worth the paper it's written on."
