Why are Boca Juniors’ odds skyrocketing?

I have no idea why Boca Juniors’ betting odds are drifting. Some of you will already know a lot more than me in regards to the Argentinian Primera Division game versus Rosario Central. I do not keep track of sports betting news and the latest team announcements, which most definitely influence the betting odds. I do keep track of odds charts, however.

And when I come by one like this one, I have to write a few words.

Γιατί ανεβαίνει η απόδοση της Boca Juniors;

Ιδέα δεν έχω γιατί ανεβαίνει η απόδοση της Boca Juniors. Αρκετοί από εσάς θα γνωρίζετε ήδη περισσότερα από εμένα σε σχέση με τον αγώνα της με την Rosario Central για την Primera Division της Αργεντινής. Δεν παρακολουθώ τα αθλητικά νέα, που πολύ πιθανόν να επηρεάζουν την πορεία των αποδόσεων. Παρακολουθώ ωστόσο τα γραφήματα αυτών.

Κι όταν συναντώ ένα σαν αυτό, δεν έχω παρά να γράψω δυο λόγια.

Συμβουλές για ένα κερδισμένο σύστημα στοιχήματος που χάνει!

Η καταγραφή των στοιχημάτων μας είναι το πρώτο βήμα που κάνουμε ως σοβαροί παίκτες του στοιχήματος. Ωστόσο, χωρίς την ανάλυση της βάσης δεδομένων που δημιουργήσαμε, ο κόπος μας δεν έχει αντίκρυσμα. Ας δούμε λοιπόν την ανάλυση των στοιχημάτων που μου έστειλε ο φίλος και συνεργάτης, Κώστας Βρουλής.

NBA picks based on odds activity before market turns in-play.

NBA regular season is on! Punters, though, have already been risking their money in sportsbooks and betting exchanges for quite a while now. This betting activity is shown on odds charts and based on that, we examine the betting trends and market dynamics in the following paragraphs. Can we also make some NBA picks that don’t necessarily sound like wild guesses? Let’s find out.

My general practice is to examine the charts in a descending order of the odds. Thus, we start with the top three teams.

Αναλύοντας τις αποδόσεις στο στοίχημα του νικητή Champions League.

Το Champions League βρίσκεται εν μέσω της φάσης των ομίλων και σε φουλ ρυθμούς. Σε φουλ ρυθμούς όμως βρίσκονται και οι παίκτες του στοιχήματος. Κάποιοι εξ αυτών, έχουν ήδη τοποθετηθεί στο στοίχημα του φετινού πρωταθλητή, στο οποίο φαβορί πλέον ΔΕΝ είναι η Barcelona, αλλά η Bayern Munich! Ας δούμε πώς εξελίσσεται η αγορά και σε ποιες αποδόσεις πρέπει να στρέψουμε την προσοχή μας.

Πριν ξεκινήσουμε την ανάλυση των γραφημάτων, αξίζει να εξηγήσω γρήγορα τι βλέπουμε στις εικόνες που ακολουθούν. Παρατηρώ ότι αρκετοί παίκτες εξακολουθούν να μην εξοικειωμένοι με τα γραφήματα και τις μεταβολές των αποδόσεων. Καλό είναι λοιπόν, να κάνουμε μια πολύ μικρή παρένθεση, για να θυμούνται οι παλιοί και να μαθαίνουν οι καινούριοι.

My Interview at BettingRunner.

People over at got interested in me and asked for an interview. Here’s my favorite part:

Q: Is there any advice you would like to give our BettingRunner tipster community?

The best tipster is yourself. Believe in that. Learning the ins and outs of the sports betting game will make you the best tipster in the world. Following blindly tips won’t make you a better punter. Still, following a tipster will open up your game. You get an inside view at a premium price that you need to take advantage of, besides making money in the process. You have the opportunity to study another skillful bettor’s style, which in turn will help you to develop your own strategy.
