How To Use OLBG

OLBG.com is one of the best resources for punters on the world wide web and it caters for both novices and experts alike. This lesson focuses on how to get the most out of OLBG.

Bookmaker Reviews, Free Bets And Promotions

OLBG lists all the latest bookie free bets and promotions so that punters who don’t have the full compliment of bookmaker accounts can see the best time to open new accounts but just as important are the bookmaker reviews. These aren’t written by OLBG or the bookmakers but instead by OLBG members. This means you can read honest opinions about each bookmaker in order to decide which bookmakers you want to bet with and have an account with and which you don’t.

OLBG Tipping Competition

The OLBG Tipping Competition underwent some major changes in 2012, changes that encouraged tipsters to add more analysis to their tips and rewarded that extra analysis with more prize money.

The OLBG blogs have proved extremely popular on OLBG since their launch.

The blog subjects range from general betting strategy, to tips for a certain event to testing out betting systems and with the option to comment on each blog these subjects can be debated just as they can on the OLBG forum.

    <t>I can\'t seem to find anything on site that explains the best approach re staking on the competitions. I mainly concentrate on \'Laying\' and usually bet 50, however I notice some folk lay as much as 500, some even place obscure amounts, e.g. 129. I can\'t work out using LSP how it makes any difference!? Obviously other columns come in to play somehow. A explanation could change my whole approach. If there\'s something on site explaining this it\'s well hidden.<br/>
    Thanks</t>

    <t>If you have not read the following this may go someway to explaining settlement. <br/>
    <br/>
    HELP: Lay Tip Settlement<br/>
    <br/>
    To make the competition fairer we are now settling lay tips at Odds+ which is either the price you take or the starting price (depending on what you select) PLUS an adjustment for bookie margins <br/>
    <br/>
    Lay Price is calulcated as follows (all odds are decimal):<br/>
    Odds <=3 => Odds +10%<br/>
    3> Odds >=5 => Odds +15%<br/>
    5> Odds >=11 => Odds +20%<br/>
    Odds >11 => Odds +50%<br/>
    The adjustment is to reflect the fact that bookies 'back' odds are a shorter price than the true price (so bookies can make a margin). <br/>
    <br/>
    Hence for the fairness of the tipster competition if back bets are being made at under fair value, lay bets should be made at a similar amount over fair value, otherwise Lay tipsters have an unfair advantage <br/>
    <br/>
    To even this out we are therefore using bigger odds to settle lay tips based on the rules above which more closely reflect the equivalent value to what a backer is getting</t>
