WITH the international fixtures coming up this weekend it's been a bit quiet over the last few days here at BP HQ. With nothing really taking the eye on the goals front, we're going to have a go at something a bit different tonight as we try the corners market in the Palmeiras v Botafoga game in Brazil at 10.30pm.

Palmeiras, who play in the Campeonata Paulista, absolutely love a corner and their last home against Paulista saw there being 14 by half-time with Palmeiras having won the majority of them in a match that ended with 18 corners.

Their most recent fixture, away to Sao Caetano, ended with 13 corners with Palmeiras winning 10 of them and continuing a bit of a streak on winning the Race to 9 corners market.

Some corners markets are already available with Bet365 including HT corners, Asian Corners and Alternate Corners but you'll have to wait until this game comes in-play to have a go at Race to 9, which should be priced up around the 5/4 mark.

PALMEIRAS v BOTAFOGO, Wednesday, 10.30pm


Palmeiras Race to 9 @ 5/4
Over 12 FT corners @ 5/6
Over 13 FT corners @ 5/4

  1. Sean Ireland 11 years ago

    Does that mean to be leading in the corner count from first 9 corners or to be first to get 9 corners?

  2. flyboivince 11 years ago

    sean its first to 9

  3. AL (Phd) 11 years ago

    1st Half Asian corners

    Over 6 @ 2.00 with bet365

  4. Striker 11 years ago

    BP, where do you check the past corner stats for these foreign games? BBC, soccerway all seem to show the major euro leagues stats including corners, shots on target etc but hard to find for the South American leagues. Thanks

  5. Chris Guy 11 years ago

    On the nightshift, just seen your post BP. Stuck £80 on race to 9 corners before kick off @ 11/8 for £190 back.

  6. Striker 11 years ago

    Al, that is my usual bet when it comes to corners, particularly with Porto who love their corners. Asian corners gives a safety net if the corners come to 6, but a win if it goes over

  7. Chris Guy 11 years ago

    Damn race to 9 out to 13/8

  8. Chris Guy 11 years ago

    What in earth is going on BP? lol. Race to nine out to 7/2 and nine is 1/4?? Just stuck another £20 on.

  9. Peebs 11 years ago

    Early goal likely to have pushed the price out here Chris. That and no early corners..

  10. Sean Ireland 11 years ago

    Thanks for the answer but decided it was absolute madness betting on corners,almost as bad as doing a team you never knew existed at -1 and calling it a ”banker” :)

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Sean, what team was that then?

    • Sean Ireland 11 years ago

      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^WESTERLO!!!! wrote a bit about them on your footy tips section this morning,dared to call them a banker at -1 but i wasnt alone and wasnt to blame,pointing no fingers ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Sean, a couple of things. I never described Westerlo -1 as a banker, I rarely use that term. Secondly, Westerlo are not one of the sides I haven’t heard of. They’re pretty well known to me, it’s the likes of ENPPI and Nigata I didn’t know. I wouldn’t tip a team I was unfamiliar with even if they were mentioned on the site. At the end of the day Westerlo won 1-0 so the tip was unlucky rather than rubbish. I only suggested the -1 because they were pretty short just to win.

    • Sean Ireland 11 years ago

      No mr fixit,it was me that said banker on my post.Id posted the stats on here earlier and convinced myself i was onto a winner but alas not to be,was yanking your chain with the point the finger gag ;)

  11. Chris Guy 11 years ago

    2-0 up now with corners. Price was out to 9/2 so feel robbed with my 11/8 lol. Oh well a win is a win hopefully. Price now 2/1 but got another £20 @ 7/2.

  12. AL (Phd) 11 years ago

    Never touched the race to 9 either, small stakes bet on over 6 0n the 1st half asian handicap market @ 2.00

    3 corners in total now, 2-1 to Palmeiras on corners

  13. Chris Guy 11 years ago

    I have my doubt with the corners now at 35 mins but hopefully I’m wrong

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Chris, I’ve seen games where you can get 5 in 5 minutes so I wouldn’t panic yet.

    • Milesey 11 years ago

      5 in 5 minutes haha, you will be lucky if you get 5 in 45 minutes, it’s the worst market you can play, corners, race to 9, who’s in front ? hahaha 2 corners, 7 more needed to get to 9…… goodluck with that.


    • Milesey 11 years ago

      “”you will be lucky if you get 5 in 45 minutes””

      Must be my lucky night, exactly 5 corners in 45 minutes ;) ;) ;) ;)


  14. Chris Guy 11 years ago


  15. Peebs 11 years ago

    Linense v Penapolese game had 12 in 45mins

    • Milesey 11 years ago

      That’s great why didn’t you say to get on that game then ? all well and good saying at half time there has been 12 corners, when we are doing PALMEIRAS v BOTAFOGO.


    • Milesey 11 years ago

      Linense v Penapolese has had 12, the funny thing is though you can’t actually bet on the corner count in that game ;) ;)


  16. Striker 11 years ago

    Corners are completely random, sometimes they come in easy other times you are lucky to get over 8 in full 90 mins. But generally attacking teams like porto, ajax are more likely but still even then it’s a lottery

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Striker, that’s true but remember Bounty Punter’s tips are not random. They are based on stats, not form. The stats suggested a pile of corners and it can still happen.

    • Milesey 11 years ago

      Won’t now for PALMEIRAS Will sit on their 2 goal lead.


    • AL (Phd) 11 years ago

      Botafago will have to go for it now though if they want to get anything out of the match, meaning if they throw extra men forward it’ll leave space at the back for Palmeiras to exploit on the break.

      A 2nd goal was exactly what was needed!

    • AL (Phd) 11 years ago

      Everything in a football match is random. Alot of corners were expected in this match going by previous form, it’s not really happened so far but there’s still 45 mins to change that!

      How often do you see a game finish with 4-5 goals + when both teams struggled to hit a barn door in their last few games? Or a game finish 0-0 or with 1 or 2 goals, when both teams have been banging them in for fun previously?

  17. Stephen Miller 11 years ago

    doubt al ever do the corners market again after tonight 3-2 botafogo lol knew corners was one to avoid ,still 45 mins to go if botafogo nick the next goal will give palmerias a bit more urgency in the attack ha

  18. AL (Phd) 11 years ago

    fell just short on the 1st half handicap! Only had a tenner on it so no great loss

    £10 on Palmeiras race to 5 corners @ 7/4
    £5 on Palmeiras race to 7 corners @ 3/1
    £2.50 on Palmeiras race to 9 corners @ 17/2

    If Palmeiras win the race to 5 then I’ve broke even for the night

  19. AL (Phd) 11 years ago

    2 corners already in the 2nd half, both for Palmeiras

    Looking good for the race to 5! Race to 9 is back on!!

  20. Striker 11 years ago

    Yes true, but at least with goals the objective is for teams to aim for the net. Corners happen if the defenders are less concerned about conceding corners and keep blocking wingers etc, our if strikers regularly take hard shots at goal where the goalie has to tip it over etc But some games you see end up being scrappy with the ball just being lobbed in the centre and referees giving goal kicks even when it was blatantly a deflection etc. But saying that, still 45 mins left and we could easily get over 12 corners

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Striker, 8 corners in first 60 minutes suggests four more so bets could be there or thereabouts.

  21. AL (Phd) 11 years ago

    Corners can happen at any time though! a deflected cross, tackle, clearance, deflected shot, keeper tipping it round the post or over the bar. 4-4 now, hopefully Palmeiras get the next one!

  22. Milesey 11 years ago

    hahahaha jokes,

    sitting here watching a little screen say ” DANGEROUS ATTACK ” hahaha, it’s a tad pathetic really, not exactly football :( :(


    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Milesey, it must be more exciting than watching Stevenage.

  23. Milesey 11 years ago

    hahahaha i have never watched this inplay rubbish in my life, if i’m doing inplay i like to actually see the game and know whats going on, not watching Amstrad graphics and lines going up and down the pitch !

    BOTAFOGO first to 5, bad luck AL


    • AL (Phd) 11 years ago

      Cant win them all Milesey!

  24. Sean Ireland 11 years ago

    Think theres been more yellow cards than corners in that game.

  25. Milesey 11 years ago

    11 corners, we’re getting there now ;) come on !


  26. Milesey 11 years ago

    12 corners, Botafogo leading the way though :(


  27. Striker 11 years ago

    11 corners, 2 more to go. You can watch the stream on usagoals(dot) com

  28. Striker 11 years ago

    I thought u didn’t watch in play graphics Milesey, where you getting such immediate stats, eh ;)

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Striker, bet365 streaming.

  29. Guido 11 years ago

    Wonder what wid be more entertaining?..watching the DANGEROUS ATTACK/NUMBER OF CORNERS feed or a drunken Milsey chancing his arm with some young ample chested revealingly clad filly working behind the bar at some seedy Cheltenham bar last week?? :-)

    • Milesey 11 years ago

      LINENSE Guido ? ;) ;) you sure ?

      the other team were 4/1 at half time.


    • Guido 11 years ago

      Aye, looks like I got it wrong!..no be the first time :-)

  30. Milesey 11 years ago

    BET365 don’t have live streaming, they have lines going up and down the pitch ” ATTACK ” ” DANGEROUS ATTACK ” whats a dangerous attack because they got over the half way line ?


    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Milesey, you might laugh but we’re glued to it anyway.

  31. Chris Guy 11 years ago

    No more race to 9 corner betting for me. Waste of £100. Unlucky Bounty Punter, looks like the other 2 bets might come up. I gave up when the other teams price for race to 9 goals went to 1/250

  32. Sean Ireland 11 years ago

    Watching that cr@p puts me in mind of kenny dalglish football manager game on a spectrum c5..ermmmmmm i think my dad told me about it,mrfixit may have played it.

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Sean, you’re getting your digs in now. What age do you think I am?

    • Milesey 11 years ago

      I had Emlyn Hughes on the Amstrad you could only go left and right across the screen, abit like this sh*t i’m watching now ;) ;)


  33. Guido 11 years ago

    Milesey, a DANGEROUS ATTACK was u fawning over the buxom barmaid trying to stick ur drunken tongue doon her throat last week ;-)

  34. Striker 11 years ago

    Reminds me of the common gambler’s phrase”for a bit of interest” it’s amazing how fascinating the dullest game becomes when you have money riding on it:)

  35. Milesey 11 years ago

    Whats happened with the poker ? has it been scrapped ? nothing up for it tomorrow night ? what was the interest like last week, anymore people joining in ?


    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Milesey, don’t think there were many. If Al confirms there’s a game the post will be put up.

    • AL (Phd) 11 years ago

      last weeks poker was a non event, only 1 other person signed up for it, then backed out just before it was due to start. Doesn’t look like there’s much poker players on here

    • Sean Ireland 11 years ago

      Does that poker online provide a buxom serving wench to cater for the players drinks …..and needs?

    • AL (Phd) 11 years ago

      That depends on how well you’ve got your other half trained!

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      AL, we’ll maybe look at another way of pushing it with you still organising. Let me have a word with admin, see what we can do. Right, that Palmeiras game has drained me so I’m calling it a night. In all the excitement I forgot I’d tipped them up earlier and had them in a short-priced treble with Westerlo and 1860. Here was me cheering on Botafogo to get corners. Madness but good fun. Nae luck Bounty Punter but look forward to the next tip.

    • Milesey 11 years ago

      Put up a thousand prize money and that will soon get people playing ;) ;)


    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Milesey, no problem. Send us a cheque and we’ll get the winner to buy a Stevenage season ticket.

    • AL (Phd) 11 years ago

      I’ll give the winner a ticket to the ABERDEEN V HEARTS game on the 30th?

      Got a free ticket to bring a friend as part of my season ticket package.

      Saying that, maybe it should be the wooden spoon prize for whoever get’s knocked out first!!

    • AL (Phd) 11 years ago

      Ok, see what you can do then. Maybe a have a league for x amount of weeks using the weekly tournament with points for the top 6 players or something along those lines? With some prizes (if you can get some free bets, or 888poker credit) for the players who top the league at the end of it?

      Or even a knockout format using the weekly comp, players get drawn against each other & whoever finishes highest in the comp goes through to the next round.

      I’ll leave it for you to decide, I don’t mind organising it though if the interest is there

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      AL, I think there’s an interest, we should need to promote. As I said I’ll talk to admin and see if we can get something sorted.

  36. Flyboivince 11 years ago

    Big loose today

  37. Milesey 11 years ago

    Damn it stuck on 12 corners :( :(


    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Milesey, none in last 17 minutes which was strange.

  38. Sean Ireland 11 years ago

    My money was gone in the run to 9….didnt like to say but i wasnt sittting watcing that sh1t for the good of my health when i could have watched an exciting repeat of the budget on sky news instead

  39. Sean Ireland 11 years ago

    run to 7 ^^^

  40. Milesey 11 years ago

    well lads…….. sametime , same place tomorrow night for this one 10.30pm Sao Caetano v Ituano, and we can watch lines going up and down the pitch ;) ;) ” DANGEROUS FREE KICK ” on the half way line ? who was taking it ” Jonny Wilkinson ! ” what a load of sh*t ha ha ha ha ;) ;)


  41. h0tsh0t87 11 years ago

    Am up for it but u should chnge to skypoker lol as 888 is sooo bad

  42. bounty punter 11 years ago

    Poor stuff that, sorry lads.

    Like Mr Fixit says we don’t just take a flyer on bets like this and that stats were good. Palmerias are/were the corner kings of Brazilian footy and their style of attacking down the flanks usually produces the goods but typically tonight wasn’t one of those nights.

    Gonna stay away from the corner betting now unless we spot a clear bookies error in pricing.

    For anyone who does want to delve into it, even after this horrific experience, this is the place to go for all your stats..


    It was a free service up until the beginning of the year but is now paid for at 10euros a month. No matter what some say, there is money to be made on these markets, we know of one shrewdy who’s ¬£10k up since the New Year purely betting corners.

    Onto tomorrow..

  43. AL 11 years ago

    No need to apologise BP, everyone is, or should, be big enough to make up their own minds what to put their cash on. I’m sure anyone who’s followed you from the start is still in profit despite tonight’s poor result

  44. Striker 11 years ago

    I agree, it takes a lot to out your tips out there for scrutiny, you gave good reasoning and then it’s up to the individual to either take up or leave, and the over 12 was a whiskers away from coming in. Keep up the good work and look forward to the next tip BP.

  45. Rick 11 years ago

    I placed the bet then went to bed! So it appears as if it got stuck on 12 corners for almost the last 20 minutes. We went from an average of a corner every 6 minutes to none at all which is very unlucky.

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Rick, there were no corners in the last 17 minutes which was bizarre. Very unlucky but for anyone who had stayed up to watch I’d imagine they could have won by backing exactly 12 at some stage in the last 10 minutes.

  46. tadgh 11 years ago

    I’d like to thank you bp I took over 10 corners in match at just over evens so made a return, wouldn’t have even thought to do it if it wasn’t for you so keep tipping and punters can take, slightly adjust or leave your tips, its up to them. Wanted to thank a few people as well such as Mr f, milesey, muzza, Guido, Danny, al, I’ve found a lot of your advice very useful, keep up the good work. We win some we lose some :-)

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Tadgh, what you say is spot on.
