  • Guide to Asian Handicap Betting - Asian Handicap Lines Explained

    garethp1981 on 09 Feb at 18:15

    Readers will already be familiar with the concept of value and will recognise that there are some football games that are best left alone from a betting point of view. However, readers that are not familiar with the Asian Handicap (AH), may be ignoring certain games, where there are value bets on offer. The Asian Handicap is a way to “even up” football matches so that there are two outcomes to bet on. The OLBG betting school has great articles on the basics of Asian Handicap Betting Asian Handicap Summary It may help to imagine a tug of war between two teams, ten feet apart with a handkerchief tied around the rope; every time a team scores, the handkerchief is pulled a foot closer to them. The team with the handkerchief nearest to them at the end of the game is the…

  • JCB Triumph Hurdle Key Race Trends - 18 March 2016

    Robmull on 08 Feb at 16:32

    The JCB Triumph Hurdle is a Grade 1 Juvenile Hurdle which is run over 2 miles and 179 Yards at Cheltenham on Friday, 17 March 2016. The race is considered to be the most prestigious 2 mile hurdle race of the season for 4 year old hurdlers and always presents an interesting puzzle for punters to assess, with an average field size of 17 runners taking part during the past decade. During this period, 2 favourites have been successful for a level stakes loss of 2.50 pts, whilst a further 6 winners were sent off at single figure odds with the exceptions starting at odds of 10/1 and 33/1 which suggests that this is not a particularly good race for relatively unfancied runners. It is also worth noting that GB trained runners have recorded 8 wins during the…

    ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ 2016 Scottish League Cup Final Betting  Preview ‎ ‎ Hampden Park hosts the first chance for silverwear of the Scottish season when Hibs face Ross County in the League Cup final on March 13. ‎ Here's what happened in the ‎semi finals. ‎ Hibs 2 St Johnstone 1 ‎ ‎ There was a danger that the game would be called off with horrible weather conditions gripping Edinburgh on the run up to the match. It did go ahead to a packed stadium where the majority of fans were wearing green and white.‎ ‎ Hibs started brightly and got a penalty when Laim Henderson was deemed to have been tripped by Chris Millar in the box. Replays show that if there was contact it was minimal. Saint players protested but Jason Cummings kept his cool to slot home the penalty. Despite not really having any chances it was St Johnstone who scored next when a…

  • WTA players who can win their first title in 2016

    The rabbit on 10 Feb at 18:48

    The start of the 2016 WTA tour began with tournaments in Australia, China and New Zealand and the first Grand Slam was the Australian Open in Melbourne where Angelique Kerber defeated Serena Williams in the final to obtain her first Grand Slam trophy. Most tennis fans are familiar with all the top players who should win again but I find it interesting to try and predict which players will win their maiden WTA title during a season and last year I managed to successfully choose three out of four selections ( Belinda Bencic, Camila Giorgi and Sloane Stephens ). I have selected these four players who I believe to have the ability to gain their first WTA title success in 2016 - Daria Gavrilova Daria has won four titles on the ITF tour including two last year in Australia…

  • Euro 2016 - Group D preview and betting tips - Spain easy winners? Not so fast...

    ibfm23 on 07 Feb at 06:09

    Group D is one of the toughest to predict or find any value ante-post bets. Spain, Croatia, Czech Republic and Turkey; one top nation and three mid-tier nations means that the second qualification spot, assuming Spain do not disappoint, will be a heated affair. What about Spain though? Are they as strong as the odds - 1.67 to win the group - suggest? They went through with 9 wins and 1 defeat but with key players of the historical ‘Triplette’ ageing and retiring, there is doubt whether the new blood can perform with the same level of efficiency during the final stages of a competition considering the disappointing Brazil 2014 group stage elimination. Let’s look at the opposition first. Croatia went through a very difficult group which included Italy, Norway and Bulgaria, in second place and gave the Italians a tough…

  • GW26 - Aston Villa vs Liverpool betting tips - What's next for out of focus Reds?

    ibfm23 on 10 Feb at 07:38

    It is sad that a big win for the Liverpool blog had to coincide with a negative result. The reality though is that tunnel is getting darker and darker and too add to the League woes, the Reds are out of, or better, have snobbed the FA Cup. February's final League match will be away at Aston Villa - a double clash in the Europa League v Augsburg and the League Cup final will follow. The Villans have lost only 1 of their last 5 and although they are still 8 points behind 16th placed Newcastle they have given themselves a fighting chance. With 13 matches to go though they need a miracle but hey, we've seen stranger things happen this season so I wouldn't be hasty in writing them off. With Ayew still suspended, and Gestede and Kozak out injured,…

  • Exact Goal Betting System - Week 2

    danbradley on 08 Feb at 22:41

    Last week I came up with an idea for a system involving a goals market which the bookies don't seem to have taken seriously yet, but for which the stats suggest there should as much variation in prices as the more commonly used over/under 2.5 goals which gets plenty of attention from punters and bookmakers alike. This system uses exact goals. However, rather than going one way or another, over or under, I'm looking at sides who regularly have 2/3 goals in a game and sides that regularly either have very low-scoring or very high-scoring games. We can back there to be exactly 2/3 goals in a game at 2.05 in pretty much every Premier League game, while laying at that price usually gives us effective odds after fees of about 1.85. With these odds staying the same in every game,…
