Many bookmakers offer online customers the garanteed price promise!! When placing a bet in one of the bookmakers many shops. Prices are not guaranteed.
They should be available accross the board. When I walk past these betting shops you see in bold print “SCORECASTS”. These are very difficult and not value with the majority of bookmakers. After spending countless hours looking for value, when I now place a scorecast I only go to one bookmaker…
VC VICTOR CHANDLER
Without a shadow of a doubt they offer the very best prices on the scorecast markets. Only last week I fancied first goal scorer correct scorecast. After going through 10 online bookmakers, VC were not the best in terms of maybe the first goalscorer or even the correct score, but combined I found it astonishing at just how little the other bookmakers offer. e.g. Wayne Rooney first goal and Manchester United to win 2-0 the odds with VC were 33/1, elsewhere the odds were…
Those are just a few examples of the not so good value at these shops. Having backed first goal scorer scorecast bets at a difference of over 100 points on a regular basis, VC……..will not be beaten on value.
Let’s look at some other examples, Yankees are 11 bets, made of 6 doubles, 4 trebles and an accumulator. Bookmakers love these type of bets all day long. Why?
If the first selection loses straight away then that’s 7 bets lost on only 1 selected runner. There is no value whatsoever, so I advise people to stay away from these losing bets.
The only way you can successfully back and win against the bookmakers is by placing win singles, as well as each-way doubles. Bookmakers hate these type of bets as they become a sporting 50/50 bet. Away from the bookmakers over at Betfair, real value can be had if you put enough effort into backing/laying on the exchanges.
Some horses like to be leading from the front and are maybe trading around 12/1 before the off!! Straight away your 12/1 bet has become 8/1, 7/1 or 5/1 and you can lay the horse and gain a free bet by trading out. This is even better for horses who get held up. The amount of times I have seen 6/4 shots drifting out to odds of 9/2 because it got held up in running.
The great thing about Betfair is that it’s punter vs punter, always remember that commission will be deducted from your winnings. Lots of value can also be added when non runners are declared. This happens because if 16 runners are declared then there are 4 places, if there are 2 non-runners then Betfair still pays 4 places. It is even better when 8 runners are declared and there are non-runners because there are still guaranteed 3 places.
One of the very best offers available is backing winners at 4/1 or more on a Channel 4 race or a BBC race. You will be rewarded with another matching bet for backing a winner. If you back a winner with BET365 then as long as that race is on Channel 4 or BBC then you win your money back as long as the horse returns 4/1. This is an offer that you cannot miss!
