Banker
« on: April 25, 2018, 12:02:06 PM »

Hello everyone, I was reading a tennis thread and the expression "absolute banker" got my attention. This is the thread to see the context:

"Can someone explain me why Gasquet @1.2 is not an absolute banker? He plays against someone ranked 150th with no previous important win on Clay"

Im assuming that a banker its like a safe bet with very low chances of loses, but is there an option where you mark a specific bet as a "banker"? is it that why the op asks why is "not an absolute banker"??

Thanks!!

See the result of this game (Gasque vs Sonego) and sent it to the bank to pay
There are no bankers in betting, be carefull with tipsters.

A banker is a British term for "an absolute certain winner." The Americans call it a "lock"

In this case, the poster doesn't know that Gasquet has fitness problems lately, and having played eight matches in two weeks, was a distinct risk. This was entirely baked into the price.

Also Sonego has plenty of clay experience, so that bit is just flat-out wrong.

Thanks for the answers, luckily I was not interested in this particular bet but in the term used, however if the position of that tipster is vacant I will definitely recommend you  :D
