  • NHL: The Ducks had everyone fooled

    Epic on 08 Feb at 15:22

    One of the main storylines during the opening half of the NHL regular season was the slow start of many Stanley Cup favorites. The Anaheim Ducks were one of slumping teams. After three consecutive division titles, Bruce Boudreau's team started the new season by winning only one of their opening ten matches. It got better after that, but there were many calling for the management to blow up the side and rebuild. But in the end, it seems like the Ducks had everyone fooled. They have been the hottest side in the league after the Christmas break and it doesn't look like they will cool down. The Ducks clearly had problems at the start of the season as they couldn't score. They were amazingly shutout in half of the first ten games. Complacency could've been the reason for that. The team…

  • 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…

  • The 1.8-2.2 Bookie Trap - Avoiding low value betting

    ibfm23 on 09 Feb at 05:21

    I have always been a big football fan and since I turned 18 i always liked to have a pop at it, never with large stakes involved as I do not have the guts to keep my cool under money pressure, but enough to keep it interesting. That said as time went by I have gotten more and more frustrated at my inability to turn what I believe is my above-average knowledge into a sustainable profit. As an outright geek :) I always kept record of my bets and upon reviewing the results I identified a common denominating factor, what I've come to call, the 1.8-2.2 Bookie Trap. Implied probabilities As most of you know, odds may be translated into implied probabilities through a simple mathematical formula. Nowadays a google search will take you to an automated online implied odds calculator.…

  • It’s Never Too Early To Look At The Super Bowl Market

    Gman84 on 09 Feb at 18:00

    It’s less than two days since the Denver Broncos were crowned Super Bowl 50 champions but already the bookmakers have next season’s showpiece priced up so whilst it’s hard to recommend throwing on a bet a year in advance, it’s interesting to see what the early market tells us. No Surprises The usual suspects are at the top of the betting. Leading the way are the New England Patriots who are a best priced 8/1 with Betway and BetVictor and given their history of only failing to make the playoffs once since 2003 (a season where Tom Brady was lost for the season in Week 1) it’s not hard to understand why. They also enter this off-season with no significant free agents of note and will be glad to get the likes of Dion Lewis and Nate Solder back from…

  • Euro 2016 - Name The Finalists Market

    botev1921 on 09 Feb at 20:42

    The coverage of the potential for profits involving the various Euro 2016 markets continues with a combo market, which is considered by many to be one of the most difficult to get right. It is difficult enough to predict a champion at a big tournament, which has just gotten even bigger, but how about trying to figure which team the champion will beat in the final? Name the finalists is intriguing enough from value perspective as the odds start as high as 9/1 and I figure there must be some way to try and create a reasonable enough strategy and determine who those two best teams will be. Once again feel free to comment either here, on facebook or twitter if you feel you can expand the knowledge on this combo market. THE COMPLEX EURO 2016 STRUCTURE Normally at big tournaments there…
