Sound Of Football Podcast 295 - Having a flutter


The link between watching football and having a bet seems to be stronger than it ever was - half of the teams in the Premier League are sponsored by betting companies and the ad breaks during live matches are over-flowing with odds and options. With the wealth of information available today at your fingertips, it seems a world away from the days of Spot The Ball.

On this week's podcast, Graham, Terry and Jan look at the relationship between football fans and gambling from the football pools up to the most modern of innovations, app-based in-play markets. Largely drawing from their own experiences, they describe their favoured ways of losing money.
