  • Betfair Exchange and Sportsbook - The Difference.

    davidg3907 on 27 Sep at 00:04

    Betfair Exchange and Sportsbook - The Difference. The simplest analogy is to say that the Betfair Sportsbook is the equivalent of a traditional bookmaker, and the Betfair Exchange is similar to a couple of friends having a bet between themselves on the outcome of a race, a match, or whatever. Everyone is likely to be familiar with how a bookmaker operates, so I shall just endeavour to outline the concept of an Exchange. Betfair - the original concept. Prior to 1999, punters had the choice between bookmakers and the Tote as far as racing was concerned. Betting on football was limited to bookmakers, football pools, and fixed odds coupons. When formed in that year, Betfair brought a new dimension to punters; they could literally bet against each other instead of pitting their wits against a bookmaker. As millions of punters could…

  • 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…

  • 9 Sports Betting Mistakes That Will Kill Your Profits

    nors on 20 Sep at 15:35

    We asked OLBG members for their most common betting mistake. From those and other answers we edited and collated the following blog. If bettors follow member’s advice then we are sure that losses will be reduced. Support Your Team Don’t Back Them 1. Do not solely have a bet on your team because you support them and have followed them since you were in short trousers. Your judgement down to your love for your club will be clouded. Where others saw terrible defending you will give your centre half the benefit of the doubt, when your main striker can’t hit a barn door you will put it down to him being unlucky. Scream, holler, rant about your team but don’t just back them with hard earned cash out of a sense of loyalty and because your mates are all betting on…

There was a huge wobble off one of the spins and a few more errors littered the routine which was a shame. It was really sexy and she attacked the dance with gusto. The Judges were impressed, but she may need to reel it in a bit and not get overconfident so early. It…

  • The Betfred Cesarewitch Handicap 2016 : Preview with antepost and race day tips

    The Market Man on 22 Sep at 17:37

    The Betfred Cesarewitch Handicap 2016 : Preview with antepost and race day tips The Cesarewitch is one of the top staying handicaps of the flat season and with the Ebor, the Northumberland Plate and the Ascot Stakes, it offers flat trainers an opportunity to send their horses over distances normally associated with their National Hunt colleagues, so it should be of no surprise that trainers from that code have often tasted success in this prestigious Newmarket handicap. Also, coming two weeks after The Betfred Cambridgeshire, it forms the second leg of the Autumn Double. Some facts and figures to consider Two 9/2 favourites, two 50/1 shots and two 66/1 shocks. That's just in the last decade. National Hunt trainers have won the race 5 times during that period, with many other places being filled by horses residing at stables with runners…
