    Which sportsbooks take bets on things not happening?

    For example, 5Dimes takes action on Team A not winning the Chip or Conference in the playoffs.

    Rightly or wrongly, I believe i have an edge on certain teams under performing in the playoffs, is there any other books that will accept bets on a team NOT winning the championship, a series, etc?

    thank you for reading, and have a good day : )

    Not really. A few other books might offer both sides like that occasionally (like, rarely, and you have to just keep an eye out and catch it at the right moment). 5Dimes is the only one which offers it consistently. The good news for you is that you can re-bet at 5Dimes after ?? period of time (or anytime the odds change). The bad news is that they might move the odds on you in between bets.

    Have you looked at lay bets on a betting exchange such as Betfair?

    This a great idea, thank you. I can get familiar with the betfair site and then offer bets on it.
    I heard that Betfair penalizes sharp players by ever increasing commisions but i can cross that bridge if i get there.

    thank you again for the great advice.

    Thank you for the informative reply. Yeah, its kind of lame that only one major book does this, but i guess it is what it is.

    Thanks again, and good luck out there : )
