At the risk of sounding too much like the Kicking Bets blog, I thought this was a great bet. William Hill had this price this afternoon, I'm not sure how long it had been there, but it got taken down swiftly after I had £800 on, hardly a large exposure for them, being the big company that they are.
This is the first bet I've had with a bookmaker outside of Betfair for a long time. I used to place a lot of bets with various companies until one by one they began cutting down the amount I was allowed to bet and sometimes asking me to stop betting altogether. I've been very lucky to get this bet on. I did want much more on that this, but it was all they were willing to lay. I would be very surprised if Beckham wasn't subbed at some point.. Either way, I'm going to this match, so it'll be fun cheering for Becks to be taken off. Decent odds for a fun punt.

As JohnT from The Gambler has kindly pointed out, Bet Direct are offering their own Beckham Specials, the same bet with them is 2/5 ! With Beckham offered at 7/4 to play the entire match. I could close out my bet for a risk free profit, but I intend to let it run. Here's a snap of the Bet Direct site. Pleasing.
