Correct Score Multiples – Football Betting Odds

October 1, 2011

Can a speculative Correct score multiple on football pay off? I’m going to put it to the test today. After the glut of 1-1 scorelines a few weeks ago in the Championship and the successful trial of another correct score approach in the Champions League this week, I thought i would apply the thinking across a range of specifically chosen games today. I am going to use the “2-0 or 1-1″ scoreline approach as used in the Champions League this week, selecting 8 specific games in the English Leagues and place them in multiples. Using Betfair Multiples you are able to choose the “2-0 or 1-1″ option and build a list of games to play. To keep things simple and affordable in the first instance, I shall play very low stakes so no harm can be done. From the eight selections you’ll have 70 fourfolds available which is where...

Npower Championship Statistical Anomolies, Reading & Coventry

I’m taking a closer look at some angles in the Npower Championship from a statistical angle to find some betting opportunities. You may remember a piece on this division a couple of weeks ago regarding the lack of 1-1 draws in the division against what would normally be expected statistically. Well that proved fruitful just that week when four 1-1 scorelines went some way to redressing the balance. The percentages in that area are still a little behind where we might expect them to be and some selective betting on the scoreline can still reap dividends for us. Just a single 1-1 outcome this last weekend has left the numbers in deficit. One other thing I will mention before I get onto the main part of this piece is that the Home win situation in the Npower Championship is someway behind average too. This has much to do with...

The Half-Time Picture – Alternative Betting Methods for Finding an Edge

September 7, 2011

Here I take a look at a single market in the ever growing list of options of betting on football matches The Half-Time market is becoming an ever more popular place for punters to bet. With the ever growing list of betting options per game including the in-running bets, the punter has to find something he can asses with some degree of accuracy and decide upon a single area of expertise, as opposed to trying to conquest every market. The half time market can offer this type of area as it often has to a degree a certain edge in pricing for the eagle eyed. The prices for Half Time results differ only fractionally for each team, with slight variances in favour of the higher placed teams in each division. This is not necessarily reflected in teams performances, and this is somewhere we can find an edge in the...

Tote Placepot Betting – The Most Popular Horse-Racing Multiple Bet? Do you play?

The Tote Placepot is arguably the most widely used Multiple Bet in Horseracing. Forget your Patents, Lucky15′s, Yankees and Union Jack, whatever they are! the Placepot is the daddy of them all. Or is it? Before anyone shouts out SCOOP6 at the the top of their lungs, I haven’t forgotten it, it’s simply a once a week bet on selected races. You can play the Placepot everyday on as many meetings as you like. Looking through August 2011 (1st – 29th), the average payout of the Tote Placepot has been £430. That is over the 140 occasions the bet could have been placed. The lowest was £5.40 at Worcester on the 24th, the highest, a whopping £9305.40 to a £1 stake with only 4.25 winning units which came at Beverly on the 11th August. That is an unusually large payout for the bet. By a strange quirk of fate,...

A Strategy for Seven Selections

A betting strategy for punters who like to bet multiples! 1 or 2 will let you down whether you have a ten-fold, a four-fold, or a double for that matter. There is always one in football that lets you down. A single even! Whats the answer then? Well, there isn’t one. Well not one definitive answer that is. may would encourage you to look at the long term picture and build you profit slowly through selective processes and playing single bets only. To be honest, I am in this particular camp myself, i feel this is the right way to go for me. But that’s the point. It works for me. What works for me and pleases me as far as having a bet goes may not work for the next person. Especially with football betting. I will bet on any given day i think i have researched sufficiently...
