2018 Newmarket Craven Meeting Winner Odds & Predictions

Horse Racing Betting
The flat racing continues at Newmarket this week for the Craven Meeting. The action is on the Rowley Mile with its game-changing stamina-sucking dip and it’s tricky downhill finish. The famous old course has been home to some of the top racing in the country since the rule of King Charles II who actually is the only reigning monarch to have ever ridden a winner in a horse race. He did it in the inaugural Newmarket Town Plate, but you have to wonder if the other riders thought it wise not to go out and beat the King. Anyway, on to the early spring racing action from Newmarket. This is flat racing action and here we take a look at some of the top features across Wednesday and Thursday. Wednesday 1.50 Weatherby's General Stud Book Handicap Ikhtiyaar heads up the field as the 9/2 favourite with bet365* (betting odds taken at 00:30 a.m. on April 18th, 2018). Never really got going at Ascot in October last year, lacking a finish and came home fifth after staying up well. There is form at Newmarket though with two wins from two outings on the course for the 4-year-old over the 6f distance. He took last seasons’ Betway Sprint and the bet365 Handicap. He is going six pounds heavier than he was on his last win. Aeolus had quite a spring in his step last time out in October at Doncaster, was hampered a bit but kept plugging away. Has a nice turn of speed and could be in the frame. Shared Equity and eastern Impact are in single figures ante-post. Ikhtiyaar 9/2, Shanghai Glory 13/2, Shared Equity 15/2, Eastern Impact 9/1, Aeolus 11/1, Solar Flair 12/1, Danielsflyer 14/1, bar 16/1 (betting odds taken at 00:30 a.m. on April 18th, 2018). Wednesday 2.25 bet365 European Free Handicap This race, open to three-year-olds over 7 furlongs is based on European Thoroughbred Rankings. Jockey Ryan Moore has won two of the last four editions of the race, including last year getting Whitecliffsofdover across the line first. Snazzy Jazzy has come out and won three straight races as a juvenile and he handled himself so well in big company of a field of 29 at The Curragh. Favourite Nebo got a win under his belt last time out which was by half a length over Tangled at Newbury at the end of October. He ran a good second place at HQ last season in the Superlative Stakes as well. Nebo 5/1, Hey Jonesy 11/1, Snazzy Jazzy 11/1, Finniston Farm 6/1, Folktale 6/1, Rufus King 10/1, Great Prospector 12/1, bar 16/1* (betting odds taken at 00:30 a.m. on April 18th, 2018) Wednesday 3.00 bet365 Earl Of Sefton Stakes This should be a good competitive race of 1m 1f and Deauville is the strong favourite here. He has been used to a little higher company than this as he was off abroad playing his trade. It wasn’t the most successful of moves, to be honest, finish second from last in Hong Kong in December. It was a good experience if nothing else. Last summer he was showing some promise, landing a win in Chester and a good third place in the Queen Anne Stakes. It’s hard to see what he got out of travels abroad, but should be good enough to handle this drop in class. Frankuus had a good win at Haydock last season and isn’t a bad price to oppose the favourite with if you're looking that direction. Deauville 2/1, Robin Of Navan 5/1, Forest Ranger 13/2, Frankuus 15/2, Master The World 9/1, Eugenio 11/1, bar 16/1* (betting odds taken at 00:30 a.m. on April 18th, 2018) Wednesday 5.55 bet365 Handicap This Class 3 action rounds off the day and it is Old Persian who is at the head of the market with plenty of support. He looks like a pretty easy selection after winning easily over a mile here last October. That was his second outing at Newmarket, having gone out in August with a third-place finish behind Vintager. Tracking him at the head of the market is John Gosden’s Casey Jones who has three wins from three, all at Newcastle and all this year. His last was over the distance as well and has to be in the picture. A slightly longer appeal is on Beautiful Memory who has also put in some good work in 2018 over the distance. Old Persian 3/1, Istanbul Sultan 5/1, Casey Jones 11/1, Bow Street 11/2, Beautiful Memory 15/2, Dukham 9/1, Regimented 10/1, bar 16/1* (betting odds taken at 00:30 a.m. on April 18th, 2018) Thursday 1.50 bet365.com Handicap Ryan Moore is in the saddle for Music Society who hasn’t had a bad start to his young career at all. This season he has had a couple of outings with a win at Chelmsford and then a second place at Wolverhampton where he put in a strong challenge to be beaten by a length by Never Back Down. Both Captain Jameson and Maybride have been showing up well in the odds with Desert Doctor tracking them. The latter has plenty of experience and has done a lot of work this season including getting four wins from seven starts. At a little longer value sits Rebel Assault who started this season well and even though there was nothing there from him on his reappearance in March, may be worth an easy way flutter out at 12/1 with sponsors Bet365* (betting odds taken at 00:30 a.m. on April 18th, 2018) Music Society 5/2, Captain Jameson 11/2, Maybride 6/1, Desert Doctor 7/1, Consequence 7/1, Dragon's Tail 10/1, Barton Mills 10/1, bar 12/1* (betting odds taken at 00:30 a.m. on April 18th, 2018) Thursday 3.00 Abernant Stakes The 6f challenge that is the Abernant Stakes has Le Brivido heading up the market as 11/4 favourite* (betting odds taken at 00:30 a.m. on April 18th, 2018). French challenger Le Brivido took a win over Spirit of Valor at Ascot in his final outing last season and hasn’t been seen since. It was a good season that he put in the last term though and has every chance of coming out strong. Six-year-old Brando carries the experience over the youngster challengers around him but the form is what matters. He didn’t find a lot of last season and looked to struggle the longer the season went on. Perfect Pasture will appeal at longer odds because of the wins that he has recorded but Magical Memory out at 16/1 with bet365 is perfect each way value. Le Brivido 11/4, Brando 7/2, Spirit of Valor 6/1, Projection 9/1, Dream of Dreams 10/1, One Master 10/1, Perfect Pasture 11/1, bar 14/1* (betting odds taken at 00:30 a.m. on April 18th, 2018) Thursday 3:35 bet365 Craven Stakes This 1-mile feature open to three-year-old colts and geldings is a popular draw and Eminent got the win last season. Roaring Lion is the odds-on favourite at bet365* (betting odds taken at 00:30 a.m. on April 18th, 2018) for John Gosden as the highest ranked entry into the race. He was showing well over the distance at the back end of last year including two wins at Newmarket. Glorious Journey should be a serious challenger to him though for Charlie Appleby who also has Masar in the race and the latter has been going well with two career wins. Roaring Lion 8/13, Glorious Journey 7/2, White Mocha 7/1, Masar 8/1, Just Brilliant 25/1, Sir Hamilton 50/1 Thunderhooves 100/1* (betting odds taken at 00:30 a.m. on April 18th, 2018)    Where you can add services to your horse racing betting like Best Odds Guaranteed it can provide a fair boost. Basically, if the SP is bigger than the price at which you made your selection then you will get paid out at the bigger price where the coverage applies. Another good feature of horse racing is Non Runner No Bet coverage which rewards a stake refund if your horse doesn't make the post.

Amir Khan v Phil Lo Greco Boxing Odds & Predictions – 21st April 2018

Sports Betting
Amir Khan gets back into action on the weekend which will be the British fighter’s first bout since losing to Canelo Alvarez in May last year. That loss left Khan with a 31-4 career record and will be looking to grind his way back into winning form at the Echo Arena, Liverpool on Saturday as he takes on Canada’s Lo Greco. There has been a lot of changes in Khan’s professional career since that last fight, having changed out his backroom team and switched promoters to Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Sports. The former World Champion will be going into this bout as the odds-on favourite, and this fight really is just about a stepping stone to getting his career back on track to get back to the top of the sport. Down the line, Khan’s future is probably going to collide with fellow British fighter Kell Brook. That seems something of a certainty now that they two are under the umbrella of the same promoter. Khan is the 1/33 odds-on favourite at bet365* (betting odds taken on April 17th, 2018 at 4:02 p.m.) to win Saturday’s fight and so you are going to have to go shopping around for any real value on this fight. Khan, whose weak chin has seriously come into question, should have enough to stop his opponent in this one. He is 1/3 odds* (betting odds taken on April 17th, 2018 at 4:02 p.m.) for a KO TKO or Disqualification success which still doesn’t offer the punter much to chew on. But it is just another indicator of how easy this fight is expected to be for him. Lo Greco is a former WBC International Welterweight champion winning the title back in 2010. This will be the Canadian’s first fight in almost two years and the 33-year-old carries a 29-3 career record into it, each of those losses coming in his last six fights. He had his big moment in the sun back in the summer of 2016 when he was stopped in Las Vegas by Errol Spence Jr and hasn’t met top opposition since then. 

Predictions

Lo Greco is likely to be out of his depth in terms of quality against Khan but that does in a way put more pressure on Khan. Matchroom Sports have hyped up their fighter saying that everyone is going to see a new Khan, one who get back on track and challenge for belts. An upset doesn’t look on the cards here but look for the Canadian to stick around and 7/5 odds on the fight ending in Rounds 7-12* (betting odds taken on April 17th, 2018 at 4:02 p.m.)  looks viable.

Final field set for 2018 Grand National – betting odds

Horse Racing Betting
The final field for the Grand National 2018 has been set. For the big race on Saturday, April 14th from Aintree, there was only one withdrawal as Gold Present, roughly a 25/1 shot over the course of the week, was pulled out by Trainer Nicky Henderson. So that means Road To Riches squeezes in to make the full complement of forty horses lining up at the start of the most famous race horse in the world. There are four horses on standby in case there are any withdrawals before lunchtime on Friday. They are Thunder And Roses, Delusions Of Grandeur, Walk In The Mill and Vintage Clouds. The weather has thrown a spanner in the works of some preparations for those running, and the softened ground is why Gold Present has been pulled. The softer ground is going to make stamina an even bigger factor in the race which features 30 jumps and is around the four-mile distances. Heading up the field with William Hill are Anibale Fly and Blaklion who are joint 12/1 second-favourites. Blaklion was a fourth-place finisher in last year’s Grand National, running out of steam towards the end having push on for the finish too early for what he could handle. Anibale Fly was a third-place finisher in this season’s Cheltenham Gold Cup and that raised stock in the eight-year-old. However, running in one of the top weights may not help the chances on the soft ground of Anbale Fly. Total Recall has been taking plenty of backing but was a faller in the Cetehantem Gold Cup, however, he was going well in the race and as otherwise provided solid form for the season. Tiger Roll was a winner at Cheltenham for Gordon Elliott and while carrying a lightweight hasn’t been out over the Aintree fences, but the age is right, the weight is good and will likely appeal to punters as a solid each-way option. One of the biggest movers this week in 2018 Grand National betting at William Hill has been Baie Des Iles. Early this week the mare was out at 50/1 but has now been pulled right into 14/1 with Katie Walsh in the saddle. Walsh is looking to become the first female jockey winner of the famous race and was third on Seabass back in 2012. It has been interesting movement at William Hill in Grand National betting odds because Baie des Iles is a seven-year-old and no horse that again has won the race since 1940. Still if the mare comes home first those who backed early at the 50/1 price will be celebrating. Another well supported longer shot is Seeyouatmidnight who will be looking to make it a Scottish double at the race. Last year’s winner One For Arthur was trained in Scotland. Seeyouatmidnight did have a wind operation last November and is one that the bookmakers will be fearing. The Last Samuri is a horse with plenty of Aintree form however the 10 years old like Anibale Fly is at the top end of the weights.

2018 Grand National Odds*

Tiger Roll 11/1, Anibale Fly 12/1, Blaklion 12/1, Total Recall 12/1, Baie Des Iles 14/1, Seeyouatmidnight 14/1, I Just know 20/1, Minella Rocco 20/1, Ucello Conti 20/1, The Dutchman 25/1, Regal Encore 33/, Vieux Lion 33/1, Gas Line Boy 33/1, Raz De Maree 33/1, Shantou Flyer 33/1, Vicente 33/1, Pleasant Company 33/1, Alpha Des Obeaux 33/1, bar 50/1* (betting odds taken at 8:19 p.m. on April 13th, 2018) UPDATE: Latest Witdrawals Friday saw three more runners pull out of action. Top weight Minella Rocco has been taken out because of the softer conditions, while Vicente and Beeves have also been pulled. Thunder And Roses, Delusionofgrandeur and Walk In The Mill are the replacements. Look for coverage on your Grand National betting in securing a top price through Best Odds Guaranteed, which means that if the starting price is higher than what you backed a selection at, you would get paid out at the higher starting price.

Bet365 cash out early – rules and how it works

Bet365
This information is based on our personal experiences with the Bet365 cash out feature in year 2015 and represents solely our opinion.

Online betting site Bet365 have become the first major player in the online betting industry to offer the partial cash-out option to their sportsbook. The new feature will enable their customers to cash-out just part of their active bet, while the rest of it remains open. This gives Bet365 customers even greater control of their active liabilities in sports betting. The partial cash-out option can be selected on a sliding scale, which will present the cash-out values on the portion of the bet that they want to trade on. This is similar to balancing a green book on a betting exchange, and trading options in spread betting. But it is a simpler format, which Bet365 customers will be able to take advantage of. It is thought that Betfair themselves and Paddy Power are following suit with the mechanism. The partial cash-out option will run alongside the full cash-out option available at online betting site Bet365 which has been in place since 2013. Normally you would have to wait until the end of an event to see whether or not your bet wins. However, with the ability to cash out, you can decide, while the action is still on-going, to cash in on your selection if it is doing well, or even minimize potential loss if you think the bet isn’t likely to end up a winner at the end of the event. That is the full cash out option, where the entire bet is cashed out early. The alternative now, with the new Bet365 partial cash-out option is that a customer can choose to cash out just part of their active bet, again to either bank some profit, or to minimise some of the potential loss, while leaving the rest of the active bet to cover the full outcome. It is all about betting control over your active liabilities. The cash out option is available on selected markets at online betting site Bet365, both pre-match and in-play as well. It is also available on both single and multiple bets and numerous sports are covered, such as soccer, tennis horse racing and basketball.

How to use Bet365’s Cash Out Option

For any wagers in the sportsbook that are eligible for Cash Out, you will see the option clearly displayed in the My Bets section of your Bet Slip. So it is the My Bets section of your Bet365 bet slip which you need to monitor in order to see what is on offer from the cash out option. If you want to take a cash out option on one of your bets, just click the Cash Out button. You will then see the amount at which your Cash Out option is available at, then the bet is settled and the final result relating to your bet will have no impact on the amount returned to your account. The partial cash-out option at Bet365 will allow you to use the sliding scale to see how much of the active bet that you want to cash out, and then you will follow the same, straight forward procedure to close out the portion of the bet. The rest of the active wager will then be running until the event is closed. New customers registering an account with online betting site Bet365 are welcome. With great features like live in-play betting, Bet365 come as one of the most highly rated online bookmaker available.

The best Asian handicap bookmakers

Bet365
There is always some football betting to be enjoyed somewhere. Whether it is during the action packed heavy-fixtures domestic seasons in Europe, to summer treats like the European Championships or the World Cup there is always something going on somewhere. Even the likes of the MLS in North America fills a great void during the European domestic break. So you are never ever going to be short of football betting opportunities whatever time of the year it is. One of the most rapidly rising channels for football betting has been the arrival of Asian Handicap betting. While to some punters it remains an untapped well of potential, many have seen the huge advantages of betting Asian Handicap versus regular Handicaps. What is the difference? The Asian Handicap version eliminates any “push” outcome (a draw) which ruins regular Handicap bets. Let’s say you have a bet -2 regular handicap on Manchester United to win a match against Stoke, but the Red Devils only win 2-0. Your stake will have been lost because the Red Devils didn't cover the spread. However, if you had bet on a Manchester United -2 Asian Handicap and Manchester United won 2-0 then you would get your lost stake refunded. Asian handicap essentially cuts down the number of outcomes from win/draw/win to just win/win, eliminating the draw. So punters have a much more valuable closer shot of a 50% winning chance. Asian Handicap includes ½ and ¼ intervals which makes betting even more valuable. In the above instance, if you had backed Manchester United at -1.75 and they had won 2-0 then you would have gotten a half win back. So on an Asian Handicap of 0 through 0.50 half of the stake goes on the 0.5 handicap and the other half on the 0 handicap, so your stake basically gets split over two bets. Not all bookmakers offer Asian Handicap betting, which is a perfect fit for football betting. So you are going to need to look around to find the best Asian Handicap bookmakers. Bet365 are one of the main exponents of the service, with a good history of offering the market to their customers. With the prices on offer to the rest of the football betting features that they offer, they are the stand out option for your Asian Handicap betting. As a recommendation of the best Asian Handicap bookmakers, Bet365 would have to top the charts. One thing which they are very good at in particular, is getting out early Asian Handicap prices on football matches, so you can plan well ahead. Other great Asian Handicap bookmakers are Bet Victor, Paddy Power, Unibet and 888Sport. All of them offer Asian Handicap betting with Unibet in particular offering some fantastic value in their markets. It may take some time to get used to the Asian Handicap betting markets, but by putting in some time you will quickly be able to see the fantastic extra value and coverage that can be found in there.

Asian Handicap Betting Guide with Bet365

Betting Advice

This information is based on our personal experiences with the Bet365 cash out feature in year 2016 and represents solely our opinion.
With the growing popularity of Asian Handicap betting on football matches, we will take a look through the options that you can play with on this type of bet. Essentially the Asian Handicap works towards eliminating the amount of outcomes on which you can bet for a football match, by taking away the option to bet on a draw. Because of this, instead of having a win, draw, loss scenario where the chances would be about 33.3% on each of those outcomes happening, you can cut your odds to 50% on just two outcomes. A win or a loss. Therefore, you should be able to find better prices than fixed odd ones, and Bet365 is a great place to start  with Asian Betting. The advent of having a Handicap in a sporting match, such as the big football game, is to level the playing field in terms of betting. There is not much fun laying a straight bet on an underdog, because they rarely pull off big wins. WIth a Handicap in place, you can bet on the underdog, and still win money, even if they lose. A Handicap, can be applied in a variety of ways, but in general, it is when one team (usually the weaker one) is given a "points" or "goals" head-start in a match, by the bookmakers. This gives the underdog the chance to produce a winning result for the bet, even if they don't win on the field of play.

Full Goal Asian Handicaps

There are "full goal" Asian Handicaps which need to be explored, but still the odds are generally more punter friendly than fixed odds. When teams are handicapped in football, a stronger team is given a negative goal value, while the weaker team will be given a plus goal value, so that they can essentially start the match even. Let’s use Chelsea v Watford in the forthcoming FA Cup tie on the weekend to look at full goal Asian Handicaps. Chelsea are the stronger team and can be handicapped in two ways with Asian Handicap betting at Bet365. With Chelsea being the stronger team, and therefore expected to win before they even kick off, they can start the game in a deficit with an Asian Handicap.

  • Scenario A. Chelsea can be taken at -2.00 goals with odds of 19/20 at Bet365, which will mean that in terms of the bet, Chelsea will start the game two-nil down. What the punter will be betting on here, is that Chelsea will overcome that handicap and therefore they would need to win by three or more goals for the bet to win. A 3-0 win for Chelsea would win the bet, as would a 4-1 win. A 1-0 win however would leave them a goal short of overturning the Handicap and the bet would be lost.
  • Scenario B. Watford, the weaker of the two teams, can be taken at +2.00 goals with odds of 9/10 at Bet365. This means that Watford will be starting the game 2-0 up in terms of the Asian Handicap bet. The punter will win the bet, if Watford hang on to that advantage, which they will do as long as they do not lose the match by more than one goal. So, if Chelsea win 1-0, the Asian Handicap will see the bet as Chelsea 1, Watford 2, which means Watford wins the bet, even though they lost the actual match.

Scenario A & B with a drawn match
Unlike fixed odds betting, the fact that a match gets drawn (tied) really plays no bearing in terms of the Asian Handicap. In both of the above scenarios, a drawn match would have produced a result. Scenario A would have lost the bet, because Chelsea didn't overcome the 2 goal defecit they started with, and Bet365 would be happy. Scenario B however, would have won the bet, because Watford will have held on to the 2 goal advantage they started the match with, and therefore Bet365 pays the punter.

Level-Ball Asian Handicap
This is just given as a zero beside a team’s name when making a bet (as opposed to any other Asian Handicap option such as a +2.00 of a -1.00 for example). For all intents and purposes, if you see a 0, which is a level-ball, or so it is called, it is essentially a ‘Draw No Bet’ option. A win for the team you backed at 0, will pay out the odds, while a draw will refund your stake. A loss for the team you backed, will of course, give you nothing back. The Level Ball Asian Handicap is starting neither team with a goal advantage.

Half and Quarter Goals
This is the area where the Asian Handicap betting may look a little bit daunting, but it is not. No team scores a half goal or quarter goal of course, but when you see half points for example in betting, such as Chelsea -0.50 goals, it is another tool to cut out the event of a “push” or a "tie" when it comes to wagers. Asian Handicap betting with Bet365 uses these fractions and they can be played to great effect. When looking at bets, there is a long way between a handicap of -1 and -2. There are three intervals in between that which can be utilised to make the betting field more extensive.

For Example: The distance between -1.00 goals and -2.00 has quarter and half intervals as illustrated in the brackets..
0 (-0.25) (-0.50) (-0.75) -1.00

Quarter goals use the intervals to split the difference between the next closest two quarter bets. Sound complicated? It’s not as overwhelming as it may sound. When you bet a quarter goal, you are essentially splitting your bet (though not in actual practice), by putting half of your stake on one handicap beneath the quarter goal, and the other half the next handicap above the quarter goal. So, by using the example above, a bet on -0.50 goals would be betting half of your stake on the closest two handicaps either side of it, in this case -0.25 and -0.75.

Using our example, let’s look at Chelsea v Watford again.
A punter puts £100 on Watford for +0.75 with Bet365 at a price of 17/5. This bet, therefore, will essentially be putting £50 (half of the stake) on Watford +0.50 (a half goal) and $50 on Watford +1 (full goal).

How does this make a difference? Well, it covers a little more, as one would expect. A +0.50 Asian Handicap, needs a win or a draw for Watford to win the bet, because in either of those instances, Watford have already started with half a goal advantage.
A +1.00 Asian Handicap needs a Watford win or a draw for the bet to be successful too, but will also reward a stake refund if Watford lose by one goal (which would make the Asian Handicap score a tie).
The +0.75 bet therefore, which is between the +0.50 and the +1.00, will take the Watford win, a draw, and if Watford lose by one goal, you will lose half of your stake, but keep the other half.

So, in essence:
Watford lose: The +0.50 loss would pay nothing.
Watford lose by 1: The +1.00 refund the stake if lose match by 1 goal (total loss if Watford lose by more than 1 goal)
Sandwiched in between those two Asian Handicaps, the +0.75 bet covers half way between the two, by only losing half of the stake. So the +0.75 protects you more than the straight Watford loss of a +0.50 bet, but doesn’t reward as much as them losing on +1.00 bet.

Check out the Asian Handicap odds with Bet365, the weekend’s FA Cup fixtures will be a great time to dabble in this exciting betting field. If you get a little lost, first work by looking at the full goal handicaps and be guided by those before branching out into the quarter and half goal options. A quick rule of thumb to remember, is that quarter goals pays out half wins and half loses (depending on which way you bet).

Using Statistics for Live In-Play Betting

Betting Advice
Statistics. Most punters rely heavily on them and just ask any fantasy footballer what the staple of their success is and you will probably hear the word “statistics” somewhere in their answer. It’s not a great secret that the studying of factors like form and trends can hugely boost your opportunities in collecting some returns from your sports betting. Serious football betting punters are likely to be glancing at the Premier League table at least a few times per week and crunching the numbers to find a trend to apply to the forthcoming fixtures. The most basic value of this is simply in looking at home and away from. You aren’t going to reasonably back a team to win away from home if they have lost five of their last six out on the road. You are going to have even less reason to be backing them if they are travelling to a team who has only lost one of their last six on home soil. That’s the very basic approach to statistics for football betting, but while it is an extremely simple example, it is one that you can actually use to see the value of looking at statistics. Most people however, generally only associate statistics study with pre-match wagers and forget that many of the same principals and disciplines can also apply to live in-play betting. It is something which gets a little overlooked because the nature of live in-play betting with a bookmaker is an exciting roller-coaster ride of betting with emotions. That's completely the wrong way to go about your betting, because with long term goals in mind, you need a much steadier approach as opposed to the fly by the seat of your pants experience. They help. You aren’t going to be guaranteed a winner from studying stats, but it will certainly increase your understanding of betting and the value of odds presented on a market at an online bookmaker. Freelance NBC Sports writer Rob Allen and creator of I’mAWinner.co.uk came up with golden rules of football betting which include 1) understanding that you are going to lose 2) choose the best odds available 3) never place a reactive bet Some sage advice there and check out I'mAWinner.co.uk for more insights. That third one can be a very, very tricky minefield when you are looking at live in-play betting. By its very nature, live in-play betting just entices you to wager on the current action without too much though and as you are sat watching a game you get those gut feelings that something is going to happen and you throw money at it. It’s hard not to and that is why it has become such a popular feature, and a moneymaker, for bookmakers. Punters will likely have less discipline during live in-play betting that just waiting for a match outright bet to play itself out.

Live In-Play Betting and Statistics

This is where statistics can also apply heavily to live in-play betting. Along with that, the old caveat of discipline has to be married together. There should be no instance in betting where you are not exerting discipline. What do we mean by discipline? We mean sticking to a game plan and managing your bankroll properly and not getting swept in a moment. Go back to number three above, never make a reactionary bet. You have to curtail your urges with live in-play betting and you bet with your head and not your heart, or your gut or whatever is driving your adrenalin in the moment. It’s essential to remain focused and there really is a need to sit down and plan out an approach to your live betting, just as you would do in your pre-match wagers. This is where the old statistical approach comes in. Let’s make an example match of Chelsea v Manchester United and we are going to find live in-play bets for it, ahead of time this is, not just five minutes before kick off. We have a bankroll of £10 for the game. We notice that Chelsea have not conceded the opening goal of a game in all but one of their home games this season. That’s a big trend and you could plan out a 5 stake on the First Team to score being Chelsea, based on their lack of first goals conceded. Maybe then it is Diego Costa who has scored three of Chelsea’s last five opening goals of the game. However, if Chelsea haven’t scored an opening goal in the first fifteen minutes of their last half a dozen games then it could be worth planning to get a wager down live in-play on Costa to score next after 15 minutes have ticked off on the clock. Again, this is all down to planning and sticking to the plan based on the statistics that you have looked at before hand. Just because Chelsea have been on the back foot in the opening forays, doesn’t mean that Costa still won’t score first. The panic for punters comes in when, in this case for example, Manchester United slotted home an opening goal in the first five minutes of the game. There goes your first wager down the pan immediately. The temptation is just to throw a rash of bets then to try and make up for the early losses. Never do this, never chases losses, that again, is reactionary betting. You can tweak, because for example your Diego Costa bet could still stand as him being the next goalscorer in live betting as Chelsea push for an equaliser. This all goes back to the statistical approach again. Never discount the necessity for statistics ahead of live betting. The same principals apply as if you were looking at statistics such as home and away head to head form for a match outright, or the over/under 2.5 goals trend for a fixed bet pre-match. Statistics can help you immensely with your live in-play betting planning and just remember to plan, plan, plan. Just don’t go into a game blind and throw money left right and centre because your emotions are getting the better of you. Get the better of them, plan your live betting and don’t forget some of those golden rules. Because of the appeal of live betting, you can find great statistical information running at online betting sites to help you out.

What is a Banker Bet and how to play one at Bet365

Betting Advice
You’ve probably all heard the team of a “Banker” in football betting. This is a term generally used when a red hot favourite is expected to produce a win in a match. Say Real Madrid were playing Accrington Stanley. The Spaniards giants would be a banker to win. Is there a drawback to picking a “banker”? Of course there is, they are so short priced that they are going to require a massive stake to return any kind of profit. However, the term “Banker” is more applicable in online betting when you are building yourself a multiple bet. Why would you have a short priced option in a multiple that you are trying to land as big of a profit as you can from? Well think of the “banker” like this. It is the security blanket in your wager, the strong cornerstone upon which everything else depends. It is the potential backbone of some solid profit because of how likely it is to win. Punters will pick a banker that they have immense confidence in, and slipping one into a multiple, let’s say a four fold for example, then it leaves you just three slightly riskier bets to build up the profit from, instead of trying to shoot for all four riskier bets. Please have a look on the Bet365 site about topical offers and possibilities for bankers. It should not be very difficult too find. If you need some help anyway you can always reach out for the bet365 support.
