Blocked matches and blocked odds are suspended markets from bookmakers offering. It happens because betting sites have full control of what happens on their site, and that includes the events and odds they offer. On the off chance that a bookie doesn’t care for the manner in which the wagering is going on, or they are getting too much money from bets on a single outcome – they can suspend the market from their entire book.

As a punter, there is no other option for you. If you placed your bet before a market closes, it will be accepted and valid – unless the selection is marked as highly suspicious – then bookmakers can void your bets. If you are late, however – you won’t be able to benefit from it. Our blocked odds tool will show you markets that are closed at some bookmakers, but still available for betting in others.

Betting markets could be blocked for a couple of reasons. There might be new data that changes the probabilities, like news that a certain key player won’t be participating or that the team will play with its reserves. There might be other updates that can affect the closing of a market, such as we mentioned earlier with too much of the money going in one direction, thus making it a liability for the bookmaker.

In-play markets are suspended constantly during dangerous situations. For example, if there is a penalty, the next goal market can be closed for a while. The same is when there is VAR assistance or a potential red card. You should be patient and attempt to out your bets before those key moments of play.
