  • 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…

  • 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…

  • NFL 2016: Fast Starts With Strong Defense

    Gman84 on 29 Sep at 19:46

    After three weeks of the NFL season we are left with five unbeaten teams - the Baltimore Ravens, New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles, Minnesota Vikings and the defending champion Denver Broncos. All of the above teams have one thing in common - they are playing very good defense! The NFL has an old adage: “Defense wins championships”. It’s a mantra many have always believed but in recent years it’s not felt like it’s quite rung as true as it used to. Offense had become king and with the league tweaking the game in favour of the offense at times and the physical side of the game getting toned down in the name of player safety it's felt like the NFL has slowly morphed into a an overdressed version of flag football. However, when it’s come to postseason play defense has always been vital and…

  • College Football Week Five: Can Louisville's dream start continue?

    undertherobe on 30 Sep at 00:45

    A disappointing week last week with the blog going just 1-2 with only UMass keeping things close against Mississippi State preventing a complete whitewash. That puts the season record at 6-6 and it’s onwards and upwards this week with some huge games on the slate. We have two all top ten matchups this week and one of those, Louisville at Clemson is covered further down in this week’s blog. Underdog of the Week It’s been a rough season so far for the OKLAHOMA SOONERS and their entire season is on the line this week, if indeed they still have a season to salvage. The Sooners have opened 1-2 with defeats to Houston and Ohio State and have to run the table in the Big 12 to finish 10-2 and hope they can become the first two loss team to be given a playoff…

  • 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…
