#OddsOnThat Special – Thursday, 11th March
Roma v Shakhtar #OddsOnThat Tips
20:00 – Roma v Shakhtar – Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Score; 5+ Corners for Each Team & Dodo to be Carded @ 25/1
Reason for Tip: Mkhitaryan has had a fantastic campaign this year as the former Arsenal player has scored already 9 goals in 24 Serie A starts this season. In a match that Roma should dominate, we expect him to add to his tally also considering that the Ukrainian’s backline is vulnerable. Brazilian’s defender Dodo has picked a yellow card already this season and will have the difficult duty to control’s Roma’s skillfully strikers. He is likely to pick up another booking at some point during this game. Corners numbers are in line with expectations for a match that is likely to be open and entertaining.
Tipped at Odds: 25/1

What is #OddsOnThat?
OddsOnThat is a betting service from Betfair that allows punters to combine multiple markets around the same event and get a price for it. On the Betfair site there are plenty of pre-done #OddsOnThat bets, where you can choose the ones you like most and bet directly on the site. For instance, on Arsenal vs Liverpool you might bet, like if it was an accumulator, on the first goalscorer, a player to get carded, a team to win and both teams to score. There are lots of different combinations, especially around the biggest games, but you can also request your own if you wish to.
Simply tweet @Betfair with your bet using the #OddsOnThat, and they will give you the odds once it has been added on the site. Since there are a lot of requests, it might take some time before you get the odds, so we suggest you contact Betfair well in advance. Alternatively, you can pick from the many that are already available on the Betfair site.
When do you post #OddsOnThat tips?
We usually post one #OddsOnThat tip on this page every morning at around 11 am. There might be days where there are not many games available, or our experts do not find good opportunities. In this cases, we skip to the next days, but we usually have a tip every day so make sure you bookmark this page and regularly check every morning to avoid missing out.
How to pick the best #OddsOnThat Bet?
As mentioned above, #OddsOnThat allow you to combine multiple markets of a same event so that you can create your unique bet and then request a price.
All you need to do is picking the bet you prefer, then tweet @Betfair with your bet using the #OddsOnThat tag, and they will reply once it has been added to the site. Once done that, you can simply browse Betfair section called #OddsOnThat, and you will find the selection you have asked to be priced together with a wide race of #OddsOnThat bets that have already been made available. Considering that Betfair have to deal with lots of requests, make sure you do this well in advance of the game as the process will take sometime.
Our experts usually do this on your behalf on this page. They pick the selections they like after analysing a game and, if not available, they get this priced so that it is ready for you to back it. The best #OddsOnThat bets in our opinion are those that are quite realistic, yet do return some interesting odds. Going too wild when picking the selections might be a tempting thing to do, but realistically your chances of winning at very high odds are tiny, so we do not suggest this route.
Why #OddsOnThat is so popular?
Betting with #OddsOnThat is very entertaining, and it is a great functionality that allows you to decide what to bet on within a game. It is very innovative, and it is very entertaining to follow a match knowing that you can get a great result if you have predicted the different outcomes correctly. It is, in short, like playing an accumulator bet but only based in a single game rather than multiple matches. For all those reasons, it is gaining more and more popularity amongst fans and football bettors.
Pros And Cons Of #OddsOnThat
The most significant advantage of #OddsOnThat is that you are in complete control of your bet. Usually, when you bet on events, you have to look for an available market, then make a prediction and hope that the outcome will go in the direction you have selected. Even if bookmakers nowadays tend to provide plenty of betting markets, occasionally you will find it hard to find odds that match exactly what you had in mind. So, in this case, you try to find a bet which is most closely related to your original idea.
With #OddsOnThat, you can plan and execute the bet you had in mind, without compromising. For instance, if you think that a team will win to nil and that certain players will score and others will get carded, you can get bespoke odds from Betfair thanks to the #OddsOnThat service. By combining multiple predictions in a single bet you can inflate the odds and, if you are correct, you can potentially turn a small stake into a large payout.
On the flip side, the odds you will get will be of rather poor value. This is because the bookmaker is taking more risk so they will build this into their margin. Our suggestion is to use #OddsOnThat service when you have strong confidence that a series of outcomes will happen and always use small stakes. In this way, you will have great fun, and the poorer odds will not affect you in the long run.
