With the premiership nearly on us and the Nationwide underway, i thought i would check out dooyoo betting anti post odds and their site in general. I especially needed help with the USPGA golf championship that looks as wide open as ever. I have predicted the last two majors correctly on here the site through my reviews, I even got Red Marauder in The National at 33-1,but an assist is definitely needed. So I flicked up the page and was immediately hit by its basic set up. Now that is a good thing in betting circles, as they don’t try to bamboozle you with stats and numbers. I don’t think there are any non-race goers who can understand all those numbers by the horses in the paper on Aintree Saturday. Keep it simple is a definite must. Online betting quotes stuff like 2.24 and 10/7 on its sites related to do spread bets. On arrival at the dooyoo punters haven, i was hit by a William Hill pop up which I presume are running the website. Well the prices were remarkably similar to WH.The golf odds were predictable although im surprised that Tiger hasn’t drifted more. Its pretty clear to the punters that he’s not quite primed for another major win this season. The energies of the great one will be aimed at all four next year to add yet another record to his stunning collection. If you are going to back him with good money, wait until Augusta. He ain’t going to win this one in Atlanta. I backed Duval in a treble at The Master and each way at The Open.But for the PGA it traditionally throws up a first time major winner. He is 14-1 with dooyoo at the time of writing, so i might bung him in a yankie so I needed to more guys. Phil Mickleson with you guys was a sexy 20-1 and I feel he has every chance of claiming his first title here. Ernie Els was a disappointing 18-1 with his dodgy back along with equally mean odds for VJ Singh.But the second value here is Mike Weir at 80s.He is left handed lik
e Mickleson and they very rarely win. Although one day soon. The Europeans are crap at this tournament and only Sergio Garcia is in the frame. At 25-1ew I will tip him to. But with Ryder Cup points still available you never know. But their soo hard to predict so ignore my tips please. Your footy odds are the same as all the big boys and theres no point risking my CC number on here when i have the safety of the high street shops. Internet companies don’t talk up major breaches that are far more regular than we know. Internet security is based on dissinfomation to keep the faith with a very fragile new medium. Chelsea’s at 10-1 are the only value, (just) if you include them in a treble. Man United at 11/8 with Liverpool at 5-1 and the Blues value a one pound stake pays quite well. If you add another team and back all the combinations you could have enough for an Easyjet ticket with Tony. It would be cool if we could bet our dooyoo miles on here. I could see you guys raking back a lot of those big hitter’s awards. I have a great concept to in dooyoo betting that involves everyone legal on the site. What if regular opinion tippers like me had a section where we could predict races and events and our current tipster form could be followed. Then punters could follow the most successful ones and back the tips with the said dooyoo miles. The better tippers get dooyoo miles as a reward for cleaning out mug punters. Everyone’s a winner Rodders.All those pretentious studenty writers that litter the site would have to give back all their miles and shinning crowns he he, im not jeloussssss. Birmingham is a healthy 10-1 with your people in Div 2 which i quite fancy. Man City at 3-1 are ridiculously tight, especially if Iyle Berkovich gets injured long term.I cant see Goater powering a promotion run he he Feed the Goat!,feed Ladbrokes more like.. Div Three is the usually subjects in Stoke (4/1) and W
igan at a fairer eight’s. Brighton is a good price on dooyoo at 16-1 with their awesome Bobby Zamora. Hull City have bought big time and are clear favorites to zoom up with free scoring Bristol Rovers.Newly promoted conference side Rushden and Diamonds are mean at 10/1 and I would pick Darlington at 25/1 if you fancy an outside E/W nibble. Now this is where dooyoo is an advantage as it’s geared to looking for the best price on the net through some selected online betting services. To get punters to there sire you often get special offers if you look around. If the dooyoo search engine is good enough it should put a hyperlink onto the best value. There are special bets and politics with other little tempters near by. A drop down is helpful to see the big event wagers and the more obscure international events like baseball and rallying. You can even bet on the BBC sports personality of the year if you’re brave. Not many contenders yet and not much BBC sport either. Something that jumps out at you if you log in now is the test match price. England are a sexy six to one against to get off the mark. Considering Australia are without their inspirational captain and the prize is one, it’s a very good price. No England team he’s ever lost five nil and this one is not a bad side at strength. Let’s not forget Headingly 1981 and all that. If you want a silly bet, then how about Hillary Clinton for the 2004 US president through Paddypower online betting. I will snap up Jani Trulli at 80-1 tomorrow each way for the European grand prix. He’s in a good car with a good team and would have got a podium at Silverstone. On the whole it’s a fun site and easily accessible and simple to navigate. If I had confidence in the webs security I would be betting with them tommorow.
Ok, I am a betting addict. I currently hold several accounts with online betting companies. So of course I was interested in what dooyoo betting comparison could offer me in my quest to make vast amount of money betting. Basically it lists all the major sports and the TV specials and gives you the best odds from the online betting sites. The service is very comprehensive, not just the standard football bets, but also a wide selection catering for all you?re betting needs. I like the novelty bets, like the big brother section on who will be evicted next! Not bad. I know dooyoo are not trying to provide anything more than a price comparison but I do wonder how many people actually use this service? I can get this information at most betting sites and along with much more. Take for example racingpost.com here I can view all the major betting websites odds on a particular event, so if I don?t have an account at the best priced site I can pluck for the best I can bet with. This is what dooyoo lacks; the comparison is poor when you don?t know what you?re comparing the best price with? Say 8/1 is the best price dooyoo displays; what if all the rest are 15/2 and so ½ point is not worth opening a new account for. Dooyoo states that that it is ?your one-stop shop for Internet sports betting? I cannot disagree more. It?s ok to find a fast reference to odds that might interest you but nothing more. I good gimmick I reckon no serious gambler will use.
This is my first opinion - why? - because for the last year I have been happily reading away learning and enjoying the development of an e-pinions rip off done well. HOWEVER, as an adult I am saddened by the idea that dooyoo should be promoting it's new 'functionality' (useful!) - dooyoo betting. Whatever fluff the dooyoo copy writer can come up with it is obviously a money desperate attempt to try and generate leads for the companies touting their wares. DON'T get me wrong, I am sure there is a lot of money in providing betting companies with eager spenders, (I don't have to go into the problems that so many people get into with gambling.) I would just love to see at least some attempt to try and really help the dooyoo 'punter' make 'better decisions' by providing a little more than just a regurgitation of 'betgenius's' odds comparison engine. There aren't even any explanitory notes telling people what the events are! What about letting us at least leave our opinions as guides to our fellow members?? SORT IT OUT dooyoo, if you are going to try and sell us into gambling at least try to make an effort . . or are you all feeling too cheap at having taken this direction to even put any love into our wonderful new guide? We aren't thick you know . . . . don't treat us like dummies or we'll leave. I really hope your business works, it deserves to, but sometimes your decisions seem to need a bit more thought. yours, Blockhead
I have recently become a bit of a betting man, no thanks to flutter.com! I never had a bet on anything until I joined up to flutter and now if I see a paper on the table in the kitchen I’m straight into the horse racing section to see who has tipped which horse and whether it’s worth a small bet or not. However, I had never used any other betting site other than flutter.com and the odds that I saw were the odds that I got, I didn’t know any different really. That is until I signed up to William Hill thanks to dooyoo! Now, I’m not on about reading reviews about William Hill this time, I’m on about a new service courtesy of dooyoo, that is Dooyoo Betting. Y’what I hear you cry! Yes, dooyoo now offer you a betting service, but a betting service with a difference. The idea of the service is to offer you the best odds to be found on betting sites on the internet. So, as I enjoy a quick bet on the Gee Gee’s (horses, see, I’m even up on the good old betting slang now!!) I thought I would give this a go, that way I can have a bet and win more, if I win that is! So, off I went via one of the link’s advertising the betting service that can be found all over the dooyoo site at the moment and was confronted with a normal dooyoo screen with a range of different sports available for you to click on. I chose me horses and then was confronted with 7 events which disappointed me a bit. I actually thought that I was going to get a list of the races running each day and the best odds available, but all I did get was the next 7 major events including the King George VI Stakes and the Grand National 2002 which are all events that are quite a while away, but then I suppose it’s only good to get your bets in now if you can afford to do so and get the best odds which this is all about! I decided I’d have a look at The King George Stakes as it’s pretty soon that this race is being run. After
clicking on it I was given a list of all the horses running followed by the odds and then a link through to the site that’s offering those odds. For different horses you had to go to different sites, all clearly labelled with their logo. The odds were good, but as with all betting, the clear favourite was offered to me at 1/1 with a site called eurobet that I had never heard of. For a clear favourite though those odds are quite good, at least you can double your money, but how do I know that this is a true best odds reading? Well, off a trundled to both flutter.com and William Hill to find out what those sites were offering me! (hey, I aint gonna be ripped off here!!) William Hill offered me the odds of 10/11. Not much difference really, but the dooyoo betting service is still offering the best odds. However, as soon as I took a look on flutter.com I found that I could get better odds from them. Flutter offered me the odds of 6/4. Now, before I go on, I do realise that flutter.com is a different type of betting site where people bet against each other and not against a bookmaker, but the point is, I could still make more money if I did the same bet on flutter.com than if I had followed the best odds on the dooyoo betting service. Maybe I should try this out on something else then, a different sport and see what happens there with the same sites, so I took a look at the football section. This section had a lot more events to offer me and I was more impressed with this section. I do sometimes have a bet on the football but I prefer my horses as I think most people do, but there we go, more events on offer in the football section! I took a look at the Premiership 2001-2002 event and again, decided to favour the favourite as I’m a coward and like to know that I’ve backed something that I have more chance with as I don’t like parting with my money! Manchester United was the favourite to win the Premiership (I don’t
support them either, I’m an arsenal man myself! Again, Eurobet was listed as having the best odds and the odds shown were 1/1 again, so, back to William Hill and Flutter to see what those sites can offer me! Flutter.com offered me the odds of 5/6, so far dooyoo is winning! William Hill also offered me the same odds of 5/6 so well done dooyoo for winning this one! So to sum it all up, this service is rather good, especially for people like me who likes to know they are getting the most out of the service they are using. I must admit, most of the odds that I saw were via a site called Eurobet who I haven’t heard of, but they could be good, I don’t know. The more reputable names like William Hill and BlueSQ were also there. (I’ve just got to add here, there are some brilliant odds on Bolton Wanderers winning the premiership, 2000/1!!! Be a nice little profit but probably impossible!). What I never saw was a link through to flutter.com who seem to offer a lot of good odds and did actually win in one of the above tests. I do realise that flutter is in a league of its own in the way it works, but it would have been nice to see it listed there, I don’t know if this is possible or not, but I would recommend that if you do use the betting service, to also have a look at flutter to see what odds you can get out of them. The dooyoo betting service isn’t actually run by dooyoo, it is run by a site called betgenius so dooyoo can’t be held responsible if you find better odds elsewhere! Overall I would say this is a good service and something that dooyoo didn’t need to offer us but have done. It’s a nice little addition to the site that could come in very useful if you like a quick bet but will only be useful on the major sports events and not the smaller events. So, 4 out of 5, but remember, take a look at flutter before you comit yourself!
Dooyoo Betting is a new service offered by Dooyoo that is designed to help you find the best odds for any particular bet you want to place. Of course, you will only be given internet site odds, but that was sort of expected. Still, heres what I made fo it. As a regular better (small stakes though), I am used to many internet sites that offer different odds. My facourite is undoubtedly Flutter.com, but I am a member of many others, so this service seemed rather appealing to me. The idea is simple. You click on the Dooyoo betting icon and get taken to a new screen. Here you will find a selection of areas in which you can bet including football, horse racing etc. You will only find mainstream bets which was a little dissappointing, but then again, not many places will offer the same bet if it isnt a popular one. I'm a football man so I clicked and waited... and waited... and waited. Then I clicked again and it loaded instantly, so it was most likely me. Now you have to understand that I was somewhat cautious at this point. I was waiting for the old 'Pay us x amount of cash' screen to pop up, but it didnt and I was offered some more refined bets. These included 'who will be next Man U boss?', 'Premiership Relegation/ Champions', 'Division 1 promotion' etc... You get the idea. All the main bets were there. I thought I would give it a go and looked up what odds I might get for Tottenham winning the Premiership. The best offered was 130/1 from William Hill (although this has since changed). I was a happy bunny as the best I had found myself was 125/1. Good odds then. Being a little sceptical I decided to try another bet and see what they offered me, after all this could be a one off fluke. I went to see what odds I would get on Man U winning the title. Surprise surprise the odds were 1/1 (or evens as we call it). Not that good but then that is almost a certainty. They offered me
William Hill again but I wasnt convinced. On Flutter.com I found a better offer, but this site does change every second, so not really fair to judge. I tried a few more bets and found that Dooyoo does seem to have a fascination with William Hill (although saying that, I couldnt find better odds on any of the bets I chose so maybe its just the best online bookies?). I did manage to get some other online bookies to show up though, so it cant all be one sided. The service is free to use, although to make your bet you will need to register with the Bookies in question. Naturally Dooyoo will send you via their link and make the referal money, but this is nothing bad and actually only helps our beloved community. I was already a member of William Hill though so I stooped off and put my meaningless £10 bet on Spurs (gotta do it as a fan), safe in the knowledge that I had the best odds possible. If I was asked to sign up to a new site, I wouldn';t hesitate to do so as you still recieve all their introductory offers like free £10 bets etc... and Dooyoo does seem to search quite well for bets. If you have a specific bet you want to place, then check this out. If on the other hand you prefer to place rather more obscure bets then this is best left alone. The only other thing to mention is the high street bookies. They still exist but this site wont be able to search them. They are usually worse for odds though, so you wont be losing much. Overall then, I give this 5/5. Doing all my bets online it does find what I need and despite not covering obscure bets, it does seem to search the ones it offers very well. The service is also free and requires no extra signing up or registration (providing you are a Dooyoo member already). Well worth a look for anyone making a one off bet and even more useful for a regular gambler like myself. Could save you a fortune if you make big bets.
