    Basically, I dont gamble as a rule, but I want to place a bet on something happening. I cant see that this particular event has betting odds online. Can you go into a bookies and ask if you can place a bet against something happening?

    Would they be likely to calculate the odds and allow you to bet (only a small bet of of £30) even if this isnt a bet they are currently advertising? Does it work like that?

    Thank you

    They won't calculate ad hoc odds like that

    What did you want to bet on precisely?
