In gambling, you should look for excitement and fun, nothing else, this is what the bookmakers sell, emotion.

In the betting world is a reality that can not be run if you do not make bets with “value”, can not obtain long-term profit. We can win over a few days, sometimes weeks, but if we do not find an advantage, we will end up losing.
To better understand this concept, imagine two friends, Peter and John to toss a coin several times (for extreme we imagine 1000 times). The probability of leaving a coin is 50% Read More

I always thought the fractional odds were a crank for Englishmen, that always do everything the hard way, simplicity and objectivity has never been his best attribute, but we have to adapt ourselves. Since I joined in horses betting, was confronted with odds of 2 / 1 and 5 / 1 and 5 / 2 etc … .. I saw this in many sites, so I had to learn to convert to decimal and understand how it works …
Decimal odds reflect the return on a bet, fractional odds show the profit. Read More

In my opinion, any self-respecting gambler must have good knowledge of Odds and Statistics. Since I have some knowledge in the area will try to make a presentation of the subject even in very simple terms.
I am not saying that a good gambler has to master perfectly the theoretical probability and understand all the probabilistic concepts. What usually happens is that despite not knowing all the theoretical concepts, a good punter through practice and their intelligence eventually learn and assess the probabilities of the events in question.
I, despite having a solid foundation in the Probability and Statistics area , consider myself an average punter, Why? Because above all, take bets to the play world and I end up not being sufficiently rigorous in Read More

Each-Way Betting are mainly based on betting on two bets types at the same time, in victory and in place at the same time. For example, if we bet € 10 on EW on a horse than will divide with € 5 for the win and the other € 5 for place, as you can see, the initial bet turnover when bet on EW.
Can be used in many ways, this first picture show a horse that will be favorite in this race with an odd below X (now explain why the odds of X in horses).
Well,in this image, will bet on the favorite but do not want to lose everything if he does not win when there is such a horse that can win too. Read More

Value bets are bets in favor of something where the victory chances are better than the available odd’s. This means that if you’re looking for something where the price is excessive, then it has value.
This means that we should always bet in the favorite to win?
Bet in favor of something that is considered to have value is rarely a bet on the most likely winner or the favorite. In most cases we bet on the “dogs” (least favorite) or a price imagined by us as good.
Example 1: Read More

Risk is part of everyday life, more than most people realize. Since crossing the street even more obvious financial decisions such as buying a house or starting a business, everything in life involves different amounts of uncertainty that should be considered. Bets are the purest expression of risk, even when it is presented as a seemingly simple choice of a potential match for an unknown event, like a soccer match, many bettors hit show a worrying ignorance of the concept of value and mathematical principles involved. In simple terms, if a bettor can not recognize ‘value’, it is never a winner in the long term.

One look at last season’s English Premier League table will tell you that home teams scored more goals than visiting teams (552 v 349). In fact, ever since the English Football Association formed the first ever football league in 1888, it has always been that way. QED - home teams enjoy a natural advantage over away teams.
This might be stating the obvious, but many bettors fail to understand the importance of Home Field Advantage (HFA). At PinnacleSports we use HFA as the basis for much of our odds setting on football. The key to Read More

The average gambler loses money to the gambling house largely as a result of poor bank management. Bookmakers can, from time to time, offer very good odds, especially after they have had a few good weeks (often weeks with surprising results, a lot of favorites who lose, etc.) and gamblers’ accounts will be emptied.
Bookmakers know that as soon as they offer some good odds (by that I mean really good odds), the average gambler will very likely deposit more money, and will almost certainly win right away, increasing the balance of his gambling account.
For the bookmaker, this is not a problem at all, because it knows that one way or another, it’s very likely that the customer will not have any money left in the account a few weeks later, due to his poor Read More

Basically the Asian Handicap works as follows:
Imagine a Sporting – Benfica and bookmaker gives the possibility of betting on Benfica (+0.5 Asian Handicap). What this means is that Benfica start with a progress goal, so if you bet at Benfica and if the result is a 0-0, 1-1 or any other draw you win the bet. If Benfica win also won the bet. Only if Benfica lose you lose the bet.
Then there’s the DNB also named Asian Handicap (0).
