The Latest Betting Specials

What makes a bet special? It's not just special because its yours, although it is certainly important to you just because its yours. Instead, special bets are a term used by bookmakers to separate certain bets from the not so special bets. Essentially, it segregates out all the bets that are about something other than the outcome of a game.

If you want to bet that neither team in a football match will be able to score in the first 10 minutes that qualifies as a special bet. You'll have your own special set of odds to deal with for the night, and you'll likely have to check with a bookmaker or two to see who is offering the best odds on the event in question.

While regular bets focus on the outcomes of the match and bookmakers offer relatively similar odds on the matches, there is more variability with special bets between bookies. Part of this is dictated by the relative 'special' nature of the event in question. Events like times of scores can be calculated based on past event data, so there will be some, but not much variability in odds offered.

On the other hand, for events for which there are no past precedents, the events can vary widely. If your bet is on something like marriages of celebrities, or likelihood of arrest, the statistics backing the event will be thin, creating more variability in the odds offered. This can make scouting round for the right deal quite the adventure.

One of the more fun adventures in special betting can be making special bets for special occasions. These can be championships for under dogs or political phenomenon. The more rare the event, the more likely that there will be quite a bit of variability in the odds. This can create many opportunities for punters like you to take a profit.

All in all, the relative special nature of a bet makes it just as exciting as regular betting. Thus, you shouldn't ignore the section labelled special bets unless you want to shut yourself out of a hot bit of action on a consistent basis. There is a lot more going on out there besides a simple win or lose outcome. There are so many things about a game that can be wagered on aside from just the outcome, and looking into special bet opportunities can make all of your games special events.
