Another nice mess you've put your boot in, Stanley

The first betting Boot of the season. You have £20 to place. You can bet in units of £5 (that is, you can make four bets of £5, one of £20, two of £10 or any combination). You must bet all £20. Winner, whoever ends up with most at the end of the day. Bets and odds:

(a) Oxford win: evens
(b) Game drawn: 3 to 1
(c) Oxford to win by two or more goals: 4 to 1
(d) Nil-nil draw: 13 to 1
(e) Accrington to win by one goal: 5 to 1
(f) Taylor to score first goal in match: 5 to 1
(g) Henry to score first goal in match: 8 to 1

TB: time of first goal in match, if equidistant, earlier time wins.

And the winner is ... the bookmaker, who pocketed our £120 with no outlay. Only (b) would have made money. Apologies, but I keep the boot on the tie-breaker :oops:
