  • Draw/Win vs Win/Win in the Half-Time/Full-Time Market

    bobslay13 on 27 Nov at 13:26

    Draw/Win vs Win/Win in the Half-Time/Full-Time Market Half-Time/Full-Time results (a.k.a Double Result) is a market I’ve dabbled with to some extent but not with a great degree of success. I assume that’s the case for most regular punters so I thought I’d do a little investigation to see if I can find out where I’ve been going wrong. I’ve been wondering recently about the seemingly great difference between the odds on teams to be winning at both Half-Time and Full-Time compared to teams to be drawing at Half-Time and Win at Full-Time. The odds obviously vary greatly but most teams priced around 1.5 to win a game will be Even money to get the Win/Win result. However, those odds are greatly increased if you opt for the Draw/Win result; usually around the 3.0 mark. For teams around 2.0 to win in the…

  • Coral Welsh Grand National Big Race Trends - An Alternative Approach

    Robmull on 28 Nov at 19:40

    The Coral Welsh Grand National is a Grade 3 Handicap Chase which is run over 3 miles, 5 furlongs and 110 yards at Chepstow racecourse and is scheduled to take place on Sunday, 27 December, although it should be noted that twice during the past decade the race has been rescheduled to January, due to the course being unfit to race on the original day. The Coral Welsh Grand National always presents a difficult puzzle for punters to assess with an average field size of over 18 runners taking part, especially as the last 9 renewals of the race have been run on ground officially described as either soft or heavy, which makes this marathon steeplechase a real test of stamina that only the bravest of horses are capable of winning. At the time of writing this blog, there are…

  • In Form Trainers - 30 November to 6 December 2015

    Robmull on 29 Nov at 12:50

    The purpose of this blog is to highlight trainers in Britain that are currently in good form based on a minimum of 5 winners at a strike rate of 20% or more and have recorded a level stake profit across all of their runners during the last 14 days up to the close of racing on Saturday. In addition, I will endeavour to list where these trainers have horses entered at racecourses over the forthcoming week where the trainer has been profitable to follow since the start of 2011 and will also highlight any jockeys that have been profitable to follow when teaming up with our in form trainers, during 2015. There is an old saying that states that success breeds further success and whilst most training stables come in and out of form during the year, it often pays…

  • Alfred Dunhill Championship - South Africa

    Ralfie1982 on 23 Nov at 20:20

    It was another good weekend for us on the blog, we saw Andy Sullivan at 80/1 just get pipped into place money (which was still a nice return but could have been a monster). We also got another winner, Kevin Kisner at the RSM won by 6 shots at 20/1 and should never have been at that price. So well done if you got on. With the European and Challenge Tour now on their winter end of season break, I expect to see a couple of the key players appear on other events such as this and the US Tour. We have on face value a very competitive field here, with some of the top players from The Challenge Tour competing who will I am sure give some of these a run for their money. The Courses & Stats $1.5m Prize…

  • I've Never Seen Such A Thing?! Talked Into Account Being Closed??

    Gibbard2002 on 24 Nov at 16:43

    Bookies Are Getting Ridiculous Now Aren't They?! Now I'm just your average 26 year old guy who likes a bet. I have two twin daughters who obviously come first, but I like to dabble on a bet or 2 with my spare money once the family is sorted. I'm no dodgy punter by all means yet I'm getting account after account closed. I've worked in this industry and I know the bookies are a big hater of 'arbing' so if they think you are an arber then your account will be limited / closed. I've had this happen a couple of times, but the argument is (there is no argument really, bookies always win) why would I take 8/11 on a selection at bookie A when bookie B is even money? They 'assume' I am arbing so instantly limit my account. Now…

  • The NFL Underdog Blog - Week 12

    Jim Brown on 29 Nov at 05:41

    Last week With no picks last week I hope ya'll found the information on the blog about what goes into coming up with an underdog pick useful reading. Performance on the week 0 Performance on the season 9 from 23 (49.1% strike rate), +1.15 pts This week This week's list of games sees a lot less of them closely matched compared to last week, so there's some underdog play this week for sure. If the Bills (11/5) had been meeting the Chiefs earlier in the season this would have been a bet for sure, but the Chiefs have really turned around their season and have kept opponents to an average of under 10pts at home recently. The Chargers 21/10 should fare better this week than last week's 3 pts, but their overall form is abysmal and no matter how you look at it there's not…

  • NBA Record-breaking streaks - Philadelphia 76ers (Nov 2015)

    botev1921 on 25 Nov at 12:21

    It has been only a month into the NBA season and the blockbuster stories keep coming one after another. Certain developments have been expected, others not so much, but the consensus around the league and on most fan message boards is that the current developments are already building one if not the most exciting basketball season in history. Two record-breaking streaks are still active as we get close to the end of November and I decided to dedicate a pair of articles to them, put them into betting context and hopefully add a bit more enjoyment to the already nerve-wracking first month of the season. If you haven’t followed closely, the Golden State Warriors, who are defending champions, opened with a 15-0 record, while Philadelphia 76ers, who are defending “worst team” in the league are now 0-15. How long will…
