IACGMOOH betting discussion thread

Daniel and I aren’t watching I’m A Celebrity, but if you are, please do use this thread to discuss it – along with any other non-X Factor betting opportunities that take your fancy. For the record, at the time of posting Melanie Sykes is the favourite at odds of 3.5; of selected others, Gemma Collins […]

BBUK, Summer sport discussion thread

Summer is a quieter time for TV betting, but the Sofabet community has a few things to get stuck into, notably Big Brother, back on Channel 5. The power trip theme and an interesting set of housemates holds plenty of promise. Otherwise, some of you may be dipping into the likes of the World Cup […]

Splash, DoI and The Voice Discussion Thread

Our hardy band of commenters continue to dissect the current crop of TV talent competitions. The second Splash semi-final is this Saturday, whilst Dancing On Ice and The Voice carry on.

Best chance of a million: Premium Bonds, Lotto or Euromillions?

I couldn’t find a recent calculation online so attempted to crunch the numbers for myself, and am posting […]

Sofabet – What’s Next

Now that the Euphoria has died down, what’s next on Sofabet? When the EBU publish the jury/televoting split results for Eurovision 2012, you can expect some reflections from Daniel.

And do join us on Saturday for the final of BBC1’s The Voice, which pits the heavily-pimped Ruth Brown Leanne Mitchell against Jaz Ellington Tyler James, […]
