Alternative Value in the NHL
by undertherobe on 21 Feb at 22:41
The use of stats in American sports is rife and the NHL is no different. The traditional betting markets are the moneyline (who will win including OT), the puck line (the favourite has to cover a 1.5 goal spread whilst the underdog gets a 1.5 goal head start) and the total goals. But with all the stats available to us, we can try and get a step ahead of the bookmakers in some of the less traditional markets such as the 3-way moneyline (or the 60 minute win-draw-win market) and the in-play moneyline if the game goes to overtime, 3-way moneyline For those who bet on Football (or soccer) this is a familiar market and is just the 60 minute result which means we also have the draw as an option. The draw in the NHL is generally available between 5/2 and 3/1 for..

Both Teams To Score Part II which is Redhammer's blog can be found HERE Intro At half time on Saturday (3pm games) things were looking gloomy for our BTTS selections, not many goals going in and it didn't improve after the break, to sum up our luck; in the 22 games in Scotland that kicked off at 3pm...only 4 games saw both sides score!!! After a quick look we realised the 42/1 Acca number 3 was on and it came down to Spain but again lady luck didn't shine for us, after Sundays games and the replay of Sampdoria and Genoa, turns out only Deportivo La Coruna let us down for the 42/1 shot. Frustrating, but we have been encouraged as on Tuesday night we threw a 6 game acca together and only Burton Albion let us down, Burton..

by tbuckley on 24 Feb at 23:35
All Draws Multiple Strategy - The Challenge Returns - Week 4 When I bet on football, I adopt a policy of mixing and matching the types of bets I do from week to week, depending on what I think about the general view of the fixture lists and basically just to keep things interesting by challenging myself in different ways. So one week I might do correct score lucky 15's, I might do first goalscorer multiples, or try a selection of scorecast options, but one of my favourite, fun football betting challenges is doing the All Draw Multiple Challenge. The All Draw Multiple Challenge is simply what it says, I select a group of matches which I think are set to be tough, competitive and could well be Draws and put them all together in multiples ie 4 draws together in a..

West Ham United v Crystal Palace 28-02-2015. 12.45. The Boleyn. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out The Game Tottenham 2-2 West Ham A strong live up was announced as Nolan found himself benched as Kouyate moved back into midfield as Reid returned to defence. Spurs started brightly but were restricted to long range efforts and Bentaleb went close. Rose and Kane went close again fro the home side but bar that Adrian only had long range efforts to deal with. The hammers restricted Spurs and started to impose themselves into the game and took the lead when Cresswell played in another lovely cross and found Kouyate between defenders and he headed home. Lloris had to be alert from another cross as Valencia got on the end of it but could only find Hugo's face. The hammers pressed for a second and Spurs went in..
