MY best antepost tip of the season was Cove Rangers to win League Two and anyone on should have been paid out this morning.

There were no late legal challenges after SPFL clubs voted to call the lower leagues now and make Dundee United, Raith and Cove champions.

Punters who backed Partick Thistle, Stranraer and Brechin to finish bottom should also be paid out but decisions will have to be made on markets such as relegation – there might not be any – top scorers and handicaps.

Some bookies have already settled on United, Raith and Cove whom I tipped at 5-1 as soon as they sealed a debut place in the league. Their price quickly crashed to end up odds on and I also picked their star striker Mitch Megginson for the League Two Golden Boot.

I've had plenty of emails asking what's happening and it will become clearer today but one punter said bet365 have voided his Raith bet and that's clearly wrong in my book. They'd already settled Dundee United, Cove, Celtic and Liverpool bets for those who backed before a ball was picked due to their promo on teams who go 10pts clear at any stage.

Well done to all the winners on Belarus football on Thursday and there are another two tonight – Belshina v Smolevichi and Shakhter v Slutz. I've got a page to fill in the Daily Record before working on the desk tonight so my advice is to follow Greg's tips here.

There have been some positive developments with UEFA pencilling in the Champions League Final in Istanbul on August 29 with the Europa League Final in Gdansk three days earlier.

And the PGA have said golf will resume in America with no fans on June 11 – so at least that gives us something to look forward to.

WhoKnowsWins Quiz

Don't miss the final day of the Ultimate Sports Quiz at WhoKnowsWins. Today's 20 questions were set by yours truly! Just writing them was a test of my sporting knowledge, I can't say I'm much of an expert at cricket, rugby league or anything outside football for that matter.

You can give it a go here. Let me know how you get on in the comments below.

Meanwhile, after last weekend’s Easter holiday the pools have a normal look about them.

I’m going for the traditional eight from 10 with games such as Everton v Southampton and Arbroath v Dundee two of my top picks.

The Premiership should have split by now so the top-flight games won’t be listed.

Here are my choices and you need to have your selections placed by 2.25pm today with results picked by the Pools Panel.

Score Draws (8 from 10)

  • Everton v Southampton (1)
  • Cardiff v Derby (5)
  • Luton v QPR (7)
  • Millwall v Blackburn (8)
  • Burton v Sunderland (14)
  • Lincoln v Wycombe (17)
  • Oxford v Fleetwood (18)
  • Arbroath v Dundee (33)
  • Montrose v Falkirk (39)
  • Elgin v Annan (43)

  2. seamus0000 4 years ago

    I was payed out on Dundee Utd and Cove last night also. The two emails read..

    We are contacting you in regard to your bet ( ID**************) placed on Dundee Utd (To Win Outright Scotland Championship 2019/20). As a gesture of goodwill and contrary to our rules we have settled this bet as a winner.

    Kind regards. Thebet365 team.

    The other email exactly the same but with Cove in it. Now the key words i have taken from this our “contrary to our rules”. I am presuming somewhere in their rules it says if a league is not finished all bets in that league will be voided. This gives us who have bets with bet365 an indication of what will likely happen if and when the rest of the leagues fail to carry on.
    I take my hat off to them for their goodwill gesture although i feel for the punters who backed Raith as indicated by Mr Fixit above.
    It would be interesting to hear from other punters who have similar bets with different firms if they have had any emails.

    • jstuhhs 4 years ago

      Not had any e mails but have been paid out on Raith with betfair and Inverness (eac way) with Coral

      My bet on Elgin with bet 365 was voided


    • Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      If they pay out Dundee United and Cove they have to pay out on Raith – all 3 have been declared champions.
      I’ll be on to them if they don’t.

    • Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      Bet365 refusing to pay out on Raith. Actually they say by their rules all SPFL lower league anteposts are void but Dundee Utd and Cove settled as a “goodwill gesture”.

    • IvorB 4 years ago

      Has anyone settled on top goalscorers in SPFL Lower leagues or have the voided like Bet365

    • Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      I don’t know of anyone who has settled yet.
      bet365 have voided the season basically.

  3. seamus0000 4 years ago

    My conclusion with 365 is that if you have a team who are way ahead in the standings like Dunddee United and Cove were they will pay out but if you have a team who were no way from certain of winning like Raith or Falkirk were they will just void it.

    • Rutherglen 4 years ago

      I can confirm that bet victor has paid out on Raith Rovers as winning Scottish league 1 title. Which I do find a bit surprising, alsp very surprised that any of my multiples containing liverpool are still open, I thought most big firms would have paid out on liverpool but perhaps on singles only and not multiples. Im not sure yet about bet fred.

    • Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      You shouldn’t be surprised about the Raith payout – they’ve been declared champions.
      Premier League hasn’t ruled on anything yet but whatever happens I reckon firms will pay out on Liverpool.

    • Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      Rutherglen, can you email me at
      Might use a comment in the Record tomorrow about bet365.
      Anyone who wants to comment on bet365 not paying out or who has lost out can contact me. Still fighting for it to be overturned.

    • maccathered 4 years ago

      Firms will pay out on Liverpool as soon as they are declared championies

    • Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      I agree.

      early red card looks to have ruined everything there today! goalless approaching half time

    • dc john boy 4 years ago

      Hope early red card in rukh Brest doesn’t kill bets

    • bixieupnorth 4 years ago

      this is why goals bets are so good, 00 after 50 mins, 3-1 to the home side with ten men now!!

  5. lossie jim 4 years ago

    Walter Ferretti u20’s – 2 @ 11/8
    Walter Ferretti – 1 @ 11/10

    Nice wee £5 accy

    Also had Managua U20’s game at +4.5 goals @ 6/4, but abandoned at 3-0!!

  6. lossie jim 4 years ago

    I thought that the bet was down, obviously my live score updates was not working correctly or slow updating, a nice wee surprise.

  7. seamus0000 4 years ago

    Thanks Trev really helpful points there especially with 365 voiding Elgin and i have bets on with Coral also.

    Rutherglen thanks also i have a bet with Bet Victor. Looks so far as if the bookmakers are being really fair and generous, gives us hope. In regards to your Liverpool bet i only know of 365 who payed out when 10 points clear as they did with Psg and Cove ( for bets placed before season started). 365 was the only firm i bet on Liverpool pre season at 9/4 so i am unsure if other firms payed out on them it would be nice to know if any did.

  8. sean567 4 years ago

    breaking news from the efl in the last 15 mins all championship league 1 and 2 games will be behind closed doors, but live on tv when it can be restarted. There is however no fixed date for that just yet.

    • Rutherglen 4 years ago

      I can only assume that bet fred have not settled any bets on SPFL yet, as there has been no bets settled at all in my account, on my phone I can only check over the last 30 days maximum and nothing showing up so far, in order to check further back eg to August I need to log in via laptop, but it seems obvious that if they were settling just now some activity should show up on my account over the last 7 days.

    • Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      A lot haven’t settled yet including Coral Ladbrokes and McBookie.
      Obviously there can be delays and some will be waiting to see if there are any challenges to this decision.

  9. GregBrowning 4 years ago

    Morning gents

    Todays Belarusian selections based on my data

    Some strong corner card insight

    Here is the data I’ve used

  10. lossie jim 4 years ago

    I have an e/w lucky 15 running
    WBA @8/1 lying 2nd
    Rotherham @11/1 lying 2nd
    Notts County @9/1 lying 3rd
    Mansfield seem to be lying down!!

    How does this stand Mr Fixit?

    • Rutherglen 4 years ago

      Looks very likely that English leagues will play out to a finish albeit behind closed doors, l have a lot of multiples including W.B.A ranging from 2/1 to 10/1 soif they can finish top I will be delighted, or at least top 3 as almost all are in e.w. accumulators or e.w. lucky 15,s but looks like a long wait to find out.

    Penalty awarded 7/4 skybet

    • Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      Yeah I saw that. That’s the explanation for voiding bets. Celtic have already been settled due to the 10pts rule.

    Are Celtic champions mr f.

      Not yet. The Premiership hasn’t been called – only the lower leagues.

  36. Rutherglen 4 years ago

    I can now assume that bet fred have paid out on SPFL results, a sum of money has arrived in my account from them either yesterday or today, these must have been settled on the dates bets were placed eg August or later. Rather than on date settled (yesterday or today) as on my phone I can only go back 30 days, and nothing appears re any ante post wagers.
    There will be winners and losers on this settlement system, I bet Raith Rovers, but I do understand the frustration of those who backed Falkirk and have lost out

  37. Rutherglen 4 years ago

    Suddenly realised bet fred might have avoided all Scottish bets, and its stake money that has been returned to me rather than winnings. As I cant get the actual details on my phone. Sorry for making a confusing situation even more confusing, any other bet fred punters who can find out more would be much appreciated. Many thanks.

    • Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      I haven’t heard anything. You could ask them on chat.
