TT Tips (Liverpool - home) CL S/F 1st leg


TT

Recommended Posts

Well I just about blew all of my season's profit on the Newcastle game.

For tomorrow I am going for the following:

?40 on 1-0 @ 6/1

?20 on 2-0 @ 15/2

?10 on 0-0 @ 13/2

This will be the first time I can remember ever covering 0-0, but it is only a saver bet.

I was only going to put a token ?10 on the 2-0, but I had a free ?20 bet to use up.

Nice to see that you don't think Pool will score a goal. I'm not that confident though. With Riccy gone and Boula to fill his shoes I think we might concede atleast one goal. 0-0 would be good too me because then we can try and get an important away goal at Anfield.

Btw. I've always wondered what the odds mean. All that 13/2 and 4/7. What does it mean?

If the result you bet on is the correct one then you multiple your stake by the first number and divide by the second to get your winnings.

i.e. If you bet ?10 on 15/2 odds (as in the 2-0 scenario) and that is the final score then you win:

?10 x 15 = ?150 and then divided by 2 = ?75 (plus you get your ?10 back)

So ?75 win on a ?10 bet.

Oh, okay. Now I get it. So you get ?75+?10=?85?

Yes

You will also see odds like where the first number is smaller than the second number (i.e. 4/7) - you calculate the winnings in exactly the same way - the ration of the first number over the second number basically represent how likely the bookies think a certain resullt is (whilst having to remain competitive to get people to bet with them rather than a competitor)

For example no bookie is going to give you odds of 10-1 that Chelsea will beat Liverpool at home however if one was to offer odds as poor as 1/10 then nobody is going to place a bet with them.

I certainly understand what you mean. Betting ?10 with those odds would give you ?110 or ?11. One is way too high and the other is way too low.

Btw. Do you have odds that changes during the game in England?

Yes you do - on websites you get betting exchanges where punters can actually act as bookies and offer odds on games right up till the final whistle.

A friend of mine plays them a lot - for a long time he just watched them until he was confident about how they worked anf then he started with small bets, he did that for a while until he hit his bumper payday. A certain game many of us will rmember between England and France with England winning 1-0 and not long to go. Well for some reaosn my mate decided France were going to turn it round at the death and he put on ?40 as he awas quoted massive odds, I can't remember how much he raked in but I know it was somewhere in the region of ?4k. Ever since then he has used that as his gambling kitty and he does remarkably well.

DONT DO IT!!!!!

Check the odd's for draw HT / draw FT - at a guess, probably of better odds!!

I can't check from work, as all betting sites are blocked, but I would be surprised if it was better than 13/2 (I will check when I get home).

If anybody else wants to look it up for me try Oddschecker

Still, you've learned there's more than 1 way to skin a cat as they say (or bet on a 0-0) icon_wink.gif

BLUENUT, you are absolutely correct, and I must admit that I should have known better.

It has been such a long time since I covered 0-0 I had forgot that betting on "No Goalscorer" is usually a better bet.

Usually you can get the same odds on No Goalscorer as on 0-0, but the big difference is that if the only goals scored are own goals, then you still get paid out on the No Scorer bet (whereas you would lose on the 0-0).

Nice job, TT. It gave like ?240, right?

?240 plus the ?40 return from my stake = ?280

?280 minus the ?70 which I laid = ?210 Profit

It didn't quite make up for the ?350 I threw away on the Newcastle game, but it certainly helps.

Season-to-date profit (on matches only) is now ?240, and I have bet ?70 of that on the Bolton game.

Quite the celebration!! icon_wink.gif

loz, how much of a celebration (lay) would one get for ?70 ? I'm no expert on that matter, but it appears that you could know !
