  • Understanding Betting Odds to give you an advantage

    nors on 26 Sep at 14:57

    When you understand betting odds and percentages your profits will increase. By thinking of the Modus Operandi (MO) of the bookmakers and putting yourself in their shoes then you can start to see what they are up to with individual prices.The Executioner in his excellent Bookmaker Betting Percentages blog explained how each price is equal to a percentage. 4.5 or 7/2 = 22.20 % 6.0 or 5/1 = 16.67 % 9.0 or 8/1= 11.11 % The Racing Post each day publishes the betting percentages of each race and you can see the variation between bookmakers. In this example Paddy Power have the biggest percentage book at 121% and BetVictor have the smallest percentage book at 114%.The 21% and 14% above 100% are the bookmakers overround. The overround is the bookies advantage and is calculated so they will collect more from punters than they…

  • Premiership title contenders or pretenders - Chelsea

    botev1921 on 23 Sep at 18:28

    We are more than a month into the new Premiership season now and 5-6 rounds are usually more than enough to evaluate teams in terms of what they have done over the summer and will they manage to achieve the goals set by their managers. There are clear divisions between who will be contending for the title, Champions league places or the Europa league and who is likely going to struggle. I often look at the top teams and try to judge how much they can improve compared to the previous year, based mostly on their transfers and how new players are supposed to solve certain problems, exposed before. In this blog of mine I will check out Chelsea and what they have been showing in the early rounds, how the new players are doing and what is likely to…

  • Horse Racing Trends - Issue 5 - 27 September to 3 October 2016

    Robmull on 26 Sep at 15:23

    The purpose of this blog is to provide trends based information that will hopefully assist readers to identify value and profitable wagers throughout the week. Although it is highly unlikely that all of the trends detailed below will prove profitable to follow immediately, many of the statistics should be worth noting for consideration in the future. However, in my opinion, the data can be used to produce a list of potential candidates that can then be assessed further through the use of form study, race and ground conditions, plus any draw/pace bias, etc, to identify likely winners and hopefully profitable bets. My intention is to update this blog on a daily basis, with information that will generally relate to the following day’s race meetings, so even if a reader finds nothing to interest them on a specific day, there may be…

  • What is Arbitrage Betting and can I profit?

    davidg3907 on 23 Sep at 18:52

    What is Arbitrage Betting and can I profit? The (very) short answer to the second part is of course, yes. Simplistic as it may sound, this is because Arbitrage betting (arbing) is not actually betting (gambling) at all, because there is no risk involved once the bets are placed. If done proficiently, a profit is guaranteed at the moment you place the bets. How can that be, you ask? The easiest way to explain this is to show the difference between trading and arbing. Look at it this way. If you buy something for £10 and keep it for a while before trying to sell it for a profit, you are trading. When subsequently selling the item for £11 you have made a profit. However, the value of the item may drop after you purchased it, and when you eventually sell it for £9…

  • Swansea v Liverpool betting tips - Bookies underestimating the Swans

    ibfm23 on 29 Sep at 05:49

    Thrashing Hull 5-1 came to no surprise but addressed concerns about Liverpool’s ability to beat the weaker sides. The Reds next travel to Swansea with the Swans in all sorts of trouble after picking up 4 points in 6 matches. They haven’t won since the season opener and Guidolin is reportedly facing the sack, with Giggs hot favourite to replace him. That said further scrutiny of the Welsh’s side early season matches points towards a difficult Saturday afternoon for Liverpool. During the last 4 gameweeks they traveled to Leicester and Southampton and hosted Chelsea and Manchester City, struggling on the road losing both matches without posing any real threats but going neck to neck with stronger opposition on home turf in line with their historical home Premier League record. In fact Swansea have lost 5 or less home matches in…
