Casino-Gaming :: Odds and Odds Movements

Valencia was 6th and Getafe 13th on the Primera Liga table. Sometimes, even the bookies/big boys make mistakes or events occur which have not been expected.

We reason, ‘Hey, if they’re that good, I would have heard more of them, right?’

Sporting Lisbon had won the previous reverse fixture 3-2.

- Beating the Big Boys at Their Own Game! Background

Although the position that bookmakers take in public relations exercises is that they stand to make the most when there is an equal amount of bets on both teams in a match, the reality is that sometimes bookmakers think that a certain outcome is likely and use the odds as a psychological tool to draw the public into betting on the team they think will lose.

Valencia vs Getafe 1.975 0 : 1 1.925

You can tell that most of the public are betting on a team when the price and odds on the team gets less favourable.

Analysis

Note: For the study of odds movements, we approach match analysis with a conspiracy theory kind of angle and assume that bookmakers have insider knowledge or are almost able to know outcomes of games based on connections or highly qualified handicappers, researchers etc on their payroll or both.

You can tell what the bookie is trying to achieve from the early odds. Naturally, punters shied away from backing Chelsea this time, afraid of a similar scoreline with another relegation struggler, Crystal Palace. It is up to you to identify them based on researching the usual factors and the odds. Expectations was that Chelsea would trash WBA, who was a relegation struggler. There the bookies go again. Check for Class, Form, Motivation and other factors as described in THE GUIDE. When? When the action is low.

Considering how the bookie always wins from the general betting public in the long run, it is wise to piggyback on the bookies’ predictions by considering how they market the odds.

Sporting 1 Boro 0.

That was the most common scenario. Some will clear and some won’t most match days. Ever notice how top teams quite often (not always) beat bottom ones by small margins? Chelsea won 1-0..

Valencia vs Getafe 2.00 0 : 1 1.90

Final Score: Valencia 3 Getafe 1

SPL Match Day 20 Mar 2005

Odds and their movements present a unique opportunity to gauge what the bookie thinks and how the markets react to them. Check for large trends once or twice a day for three days and check the odds a last time an hour or two just before the match.

The Other Parties Involved

The bookies need to let the public win sometimes.

Knowing that the memory of this was still fresh in the minds of punters, bookmakers posted the same opening handicap for Chelsea the following week at 1.75. Punters were sure Boro would go all out to win this match to avoid disqualification from the UEFA Cup. A check with the odds confirm that prices on Middlesbrough are getting lower. The very high and rather rare handicap of 1.75 given by the bookies seemed to confirm this fact. When you see little action on popular favourites from the odds movement and the asian handicap is reasonably high against the favourites, you might choose to bet on the favourites then.

Sometimes, the big odd movements are caused by these parties (less often) and not by the betting public.

This is the psychological function of the odds used to the fullest by the bookmakers to fool the public.

Example 3

190305

Example 1. Punters lapped this up, confident of a sound trashing of WBA by Chelsea and bet on Chelsea despite the high handicap. Well, if so, why were the bookies so kind as to award Boro a 1/2-ball handicap?

How do you make sure that the heavy betting is by these big boys in the know? Check out the forums. If everyone there seems to say they are betting on one team but the betting odds prove that money is being poured on the other, you will know that the heavy betting is not done by the Joe Publics.

Examples

We do not know what the bookies know but the final score?

As the public likes to bet on favourites most times and these favourites do not lose or draw often enough for the bookmakers’ appetite, it makes sense that they use this psychological function mostly in Asian Handicap odds. In this case, go with the flow of the betting. This was even though they had won their previous game.

Example 2

200305

How do you tell if people have fallen for the trap?

Middlesbrough, in that season, was an upper mid-table team in the English Premier League, the most popular league worldwide. This is where the public can lose if they bet on favourites who win by just goal. Also, sometimes the big bookies intentionally let the public have a good week or two (rarer and rarer though) -to let losses wipe out the smaller bookies and throw off anyone who’s on to their game.

You have to question just why Valencia was giving a one-ball handicap when Getafe was in hot form. Punters missed this opportunity to win from betting on their favourites but they noticed the scoreline and regained their confidence in the favourite again. Study it over two or three days. A one-ball handicap was a lot to give for a separation of just 7 places.

Conclusion

Valencia had just lost their last game and Getafe was getting known as a giant-killer, beating Real Madrid and Athletic Bilbao and drawing with Deportivo and Real Betis recently the previous four games. So look out for favourable opening or early odds on these teams which eventually climb to normal levels when the match is about to start. Remember that mastering this is something of an artform and takes some time and experience to get good at. This is not for every match so just be on the lookout for unusual activity. Try not to get trapped in this hidden but vicious cycle.

On the whole, however, it is a very accurate way to predict winners based on the number of winning bets this has produced for some pro-bettors.

Study the movement of the odds.

Chelsea was giving the same 1.75 handicap to West Brom the previous EPL fixture and won the game 1-0 with a single goal from Didier Drogba. If the top of the table-team is giving a ½ ball handicap to the number two team in the table, it is usually too high. Hone your analytical skills and try to think like the bookie.

Not much movement in the odds (above) to suggest heavy backing of Valencia by the public to warrant such a handicap.

People tend to bet on teams they know and think of less heard-of teams as not up to par. The bookie is seducing you to bet on the underdog. When you see particularly heavy betting on weak teams, check the various factors and if you realise there’s no reason for it, be aware of such ‘big boy’ action going on. Chelsea was then leading the table with 8 points more than the nearest contender for the title, Man U. (This take some experience and study.)

Exploiting the Odds

There is no such thing as a foolproof method. However, there are other parties around – big timers with inside knowledge, betting syndicates, match-fixers, etc who are not necessarily friendly to the bookie.

When you see odds like these, you first have to recognize certain factors outside the movements of these odds. Is there something that most of the public wouldn’t know? If the non-favourite team exhibits traits that could help them win (or draw) or if the favourite team has some factors going against them, bet on the underdog just like the bookie, when the betting public is going heavy on the favourites. That is, bet on those teams which are being bet heavily on. Some of them even bet on Palace, evidenced by slightly dropping prices on the underdog, thinking perhaps Chelsea were losing their form.

UEFA Match Day: 17 Mar 2005

Sporting Lissabon vs Middlesbrough 2.05 0 : 1/2 1.85

Take note however, that on any matchday, there is seldom the case that all the favourites fail to clear the handicap, even when the public is betting heavily on them.

Score? Chelsea 4, Palace 1.

Verdict: Bet Valencia

EPL Match Day: 19 Mar 2005

Chelsea vs Crystal Palace 2.05 0 : 1 3/4 1.85

As always, when unsure, lay off.

Well, we do not know the answer to that but we know that when a relatively well-known team is given a 0.5 handicap by a less-popular team, everybody bets on the popular team, confident that they can at least draw with the ‘obscure’ team.

Normally, the bookie likes to lay traps on favourites and popular teams which the public likes to bet on.

The bookies met two objectives with this match.

Check match facts against the odds movements. Take note of heavy action where odds or prices have big movements. Sporting Lisbon is a fine team from Portugal but relatively unknown when compared to Middlebrough even though they have produced some of the best known names in football currently like Luis Figo and Cristiano Ronaldo. They confused the public with the same handicap and the same team at different times and the favourites won heavily without much betting on them

Casino-Gaming :: Gambling or Gaming, Entertainment or Exploitation? (Page 1 of 2)

As more people began to enjoy gambling from the comfort of their homes, and the impacts of Internet gambling became apparent, a change of rules was definitely needed!

The gambling industry in the UK was given a thorough review, approved by the government, during the year 2000. Their concern was that the number of casinos in Britain would grow at an alarming rate. The types of sports betting in the UK include horse and dog racing.

Page 1 of 2 :: First | Last :: Prev | 1 2 | Next

Gambling is an exciting pastime, and there are many options for enjoying the many aspects of it whether you are at home or in a casino. They accept the wagers, collect money from those who lost a wager, pay those who won, and turn a profit by striving for a balanced book.

A new Gambling Act went into effect in 2007, and the reaction of a large number of people was anything but positive. Sports betting is quite popular, and betting shops offer a location to place a bet via betting terminals, seating to watch the events on television, and enjoy some refreshments as well. The advent of gambling via the Internet, mobile phone and/or television also served to make the gambling laws that were passed in 1968 seem rather old-fashioned. Bookmakers have many tasks. Nevertheless, the new laws remained, and served to regulate not only certain lotteries, bingo, casinos and gaming machines, but also remote gambling and betting.

Back in 1994, the UK government approved a National Lottery, which helped to make gambling seem more mainstream to the public. Some must obtain certificates of approval before they can begin their jobs.

Three categories of gambling are prevalent in the UK. It recommended that gambling as a whole should be modernized. Gambling statistics were studied, and the follow-up to this review was dubbed the Bud Report. The effects of gambling can be far reaching. More than ten various commissions and trade associations have been established to aid in the monitoring process of gambling. They also have the power to impose fines, pull licences, assess penalties, and can see that those who cheat or gamble illegally are prosecuted. Betting shops and bookmakers also play a big role in the UK gambling scene.

The history of gambling is quite a storied one. Known as gaming for around 265 years before the term gambling was introduced, the entertainment value of the many types of wagering money or property continues to grow. In most cases, a person must be over age 18 in order to gamble. Despite the evolution of this popular pastime, gambling isnt always viewed as socially acceptable. This report also suggested that current laws be relaxed to let communities have more freedom of choice concerning their gambling habits.

Those who are employed within the gambling industry are held to high standards. The most vocal criticism of these liberal gambling laws came from the Methodist Church and the Salvation Army. They refused to recognize any benefits of gambling. Among these are the National Lottery Commission, the Gambling Commission, British Casino Association, British Horseracing Board, and the Association of British Bookmakers. These are betting, casino style gambling, and lotteries. Gamblers can also place a bet on the Internet or by way of a telephone call. Many people feel all gambling is wrong, and are quite firm in their belief.. The exceptions are fruit machines which pay with tokens, which has no age limit, lotteries that are local, and football pools, with the latter two having an age limit of 16 and above

Miraculous Cures or Dangerous Quackery?

I hedge my bets by getting Nigel (my dowsing buddy) to dowse my questions on anything that seems important or serious. With that in mind, they have created a range of affordable and free products to help people with this goal. And that is why you are wise to make health dowsing a personal choice, and to be very careful to exercise it with prudence and caution.

If you are dowsing for a family member about health issues, make sure the person is open to your point of view and belief systems about health and dowsing. Often, pendulum dowsers start by dowsing their nutritional supplements. Visit their website for more information: http://www.all-about-dowsing.com

Things that can start small can end up being major health problems. So I want to take a little time to cover some basics that will help you if you are considering learning to health dowse. But what if it’s something serious? There is a huge difference in risk if you dowse wrong in some situations.

I love health dowsing, but I am always aware that no dowsing is 100%, and when dowsing about health, that margin for error can lead to complications. It’s one thing to choose a supplement that might be less than perfect for achieving your health goals, but it is dangerous to dowse incorrectly about life and death issues, and sometimes, it isn’t really obvious what those are.

One of the most popular applications of dowsing is for health. Yet most of the time, they go on practicing and collecting fees. If that bothers you, don’t health dowse.

As I have often mentioned before, the fact that dowsing isn’t 100% is a non-issue. While I believe that health dowsing is one of the best applications of dowsing, I am aware that done poorly, it can also hold the greatest dangers. Yet, dowsing is held to a higher standard. That pain in your side might be appendicitis, or it might be indigestion. But since the desire is to experience health, most dowsers go beyond that. There is nothing fake about it. With that in mind, they are experts in both the ‘inner’ work of clearing personal blocks and the ‘outer work’ of space clearing to provide harmonious space for success. So don’t dowse for anyone who doesn’t believe in pretty much the same things you do. Find a professional who is open.

Health Dowsing Dos:

One thing I can tell you for sure: dowsing for health can achieve miracles. Let’s look at them as Dowsing Dos and Dowsing Don’ts. If you health dowse, do not interact with those who have totally different beliefs. In a sense, we both are right, but in the end, it’s your body, and your outcome to determine. I wish I had a dollar for every mistake I have seen or heard a doctor make. It’s asking for a conflict.

In spite of the risks and warnings, if you seek proper training and have an appropriate outlook, you can develop health dowsing expertise that will be of great assistance to you, your pets and your family members.

Author’s Bio:

Maggie and Nigel Percy specialize in dowsing for personal growth–creating the life you want using dowsing. I have adopted the attitude that no professional is perfect, and I have a level of competence in health dowsing that gives me really good, though not perfect, accuracy. No one in their right mind expects a doctor to always know the answers or to always cure his or her patients. It will help you see the health picture more clearly and interpret your results more accurately

Choose to consult with health care practitioners who are open to your participation, if you health dowse

Health Dowsing Don’ts:

Never diagnose or prescribe for anyone if it is illegal to do so in your location

Don’t dowse about issues that are above your level of experience, as you will be more prone to error

Don’t use dowsing as a substitute for proper medical attention

Never dowse about anything you are fearful about. If it’s the latter, you would think even a novice could safely dowse about it. Sometimes, I will ask my friend Fern to dowse, or even blind dowse a question for me, if I am concerned about what might go wrong if I am not accurate. Also, if I have concerns about outcomes, I will be more inclined to be open to professional help.

Nowhere in dowsing is the conflict between different belief systems more dangerous to outcomes than in health dowsing. If you hone your dowsing skill and follow wise dowsing practices, you will find that health dowsing can be a truly amazing tool in your toolkit. For example, I could dowse that the pain in your arm is merely muscle pain and be correct, but if you have fallen and believe that it must be something much more serious, like a broken bone, you can manifest that outcome. This can make it a challenge to only dowse within your level of experience. They have been teaching dowsing together since 2000, and their passion is to empower as many people as possible to learn to dowse. For example, don’t go to an allopathic doctor who thinks dowsing is fake and expect him to accept your dowsing results, or even listen to them. We all have free will, and I think a lot of apparent dowsing ‘errors’ are merely a clash of belief systems. It’s not fair, but that’s the way it is. And that is where the conflict comes in. They are also expert health dowsers. Nothing is 100%.

Always seek a second opinion, and a third opinion, especially on important health decisions

Use the services of a health care professional as appropriate

Only dowse about health issues you are able to be detached about

Dowse when you are in a balanced frame of mind, and you are feeling well physically

Obtain some background in health and anatomy and biology as appropriate. But you need to know at the outset, that like all other types of dowsing, you won’t be 100% accurate when health dowsing

Slot Machine Tips – InfoBarrel

There are better ways to make money than playing slots, so just try to have a good time, if you win, that’s icing on the cake.

-Don’t pick a favorite machine. Even if you have flipped heads 1000 times in a row, the 1001st flip still has a 1 to 1 chance of landing on heads. Slot machines are no different, if you have been loosing on the same machine all day, change machines, the machine you were losing on is probably just a tight machine. This may include free food, drinks, rooms, or shows. Think of flipping a coin for example, every time you throw it the odds of getting heads are one to one. Casinos program these to payout in order to lure people back onto the gaming floor; they make more money from slots than selling food.

-Machines near change counters. Higher denomination machines payout at higher rates, with one dollar and five dollar machines often paying out in the 95 to 98 percent range. Try playing only with your original bankroll, and pocketing any winnings, this way you will always have something left when you go home. Different slot machines payout at different rates depending on their programming, slot machines that payout at high rates are called “loose” and are the machines that you are trying to find. Casinos want people in line to see other people winning so that they get excited about playing, and get more money changed.

Casinos also place low paying slots in certain areas because they won’t help win customers. It is also a good idea to break your bank roll into smaller session specific amounts, say you are going to the casino all day with 500 dollars, break it into $250 for before lunch, and $250 for after, this way you won’t go broke a long time before the end of your day. If you don’t bet the maximum amount you may hit the jackpot and only make a fraction of what you would have otherwise.Step 4Manage Your Bankroll.

Never start playing without a plan. Casinos that placed loose slot machines near the entrance found that people never went any further into the casino, so they moved the loose machines further in.

-Near the table games, or sports/race betting area. You can find a payout table on the front of each machine that tells you the payout percentage for each bet. The idea is to place loose machines in highly visible areas so that people see and hear when people win, and are encouraged to keep on playing. You should avoid machines in the following areas:

-Around the bathrooms. This article explores some simple slot machine strategy that will help you make the most money you can playing slot machines. Since machines that take larger amounts of money payback more, always make sure to play the highest stake machine that you can afford with your allotted bankroll. Also the casinos stand to make more money off of the high stakes of tables and sports betting, so they don’t want these people to leave to play slots.


Step 2Understand Statistics.

Statistics can be very counter intuitive and it is important to have an idea of the numbers that drive the machines. If you can’t afford the highest bet, play on a lower denomination machine where you can bet the maximum amount. Base your play solely on performance.

-Try the machine next to you. There is a very common misconception in gaming that machines that haven’t had a jackpot in a long time are due to hit one soon. Step 3Always Play the Maximum Bet.

On most slot machines you can only hit the jackpot if you bet the maximum amount. Slot machines have grown in popularity because they are so fun and easy to play. These machines are more visible from the whole casino than others, so they are more likely to payout.

-Machines in the area surrounding snack bars. Casinos spend lots of time and effort placing their loose machines where they will maximize profit. Different machines are programmed to payout at different rates, and you want to maximize your chance of getting a machine with a good payout rate. If you are using a rewards card, even if you lose your entire bankroll, at least you won’t have to pay for drinks next time you come.

Array

Slot machines have gone from a marginal game at most casinos to one of the main attractions. This is absolutely false. Every spin is independent from the last spin, and the chances of any spin hitting are exactly the same as any other spin. Picking a favorite may make it hard to leave when you are losing. Also always play with coins instead of bills, this will slow you down and keep you from burning through all of your money.Step 5Use a Rewards Card.

Most casinos offer a rewards card that lets you earn comps for playing at their casino. So don’t beat yourself up if someone hits the jackpot on a machine you were just playing, you would have had to pull the lever at the same second as them in order to hit the jackpot.

Tips & Warnings-Gambling can be very addictive and dangerous. They will often help direct you to the highest paying games because it will keep you at their casino over others.

*Picture provided by Corpse Reviver at wikicommons

. In addition to being fun, slot machines can be very lucrative to play if you approach them the right way. Place strict limits on how much you are willing to lose, and never keep playing to try and recoup losses. The casinos then place lower paying machines is less visible areas so that once people are drawn in by the loose machines, they will spend their time playing machines that the casinos make more money off of. Don’t get too emotionally involved, or you may pay for it.

-Play for fun. Reward cards are free and they don’t take long to register, so there is no reason to not get one. Also keep in mind that the outcome of each spin is determined by a random number generator that is always running whether or not someone is playing the machine, this means that the split second that you pull the lever determines the outcome of the spin. These are some good places to look for loose machines:

-Any machine on a raised platform.

Once you decide on what stakes you are playing with, your next task is to find which individual machine you want to play. If someone is waiting for their friend in the bathroom, they are probably going to play to pass the time whether or not the machines are paying out.

-Near the entrance. Casinos don’t place two loose machines side by side, so if you are playing a tight machine, the one next to you may be better.

-Talk to floor workers. So next time you head to the casino, keep these slot machine tips in mind.Things You Will Need-Spare money

-Risk tolerance

-DisciplineStep 1Finding a Machine.

Before you start playing slots it is very important to stake out a good machine. People that play the tables, or bet on sporting events don’t tend to play the slots very often, so the loose machines probably wouldn’t entice them

Roulette System To Improve Your Odds And Win More

If you place equal bets on Red and Black every spin you will never lose any money, except for when 0 is drawn. When you keep betting Red and Black you will keep winning on color bets (even though you break even because you have bet on both Red and Black), but the computer registers a winning color bet every time so therefore we have discovered that that the color Green 0 starts to be drawn a lot more to combat the constant wins on Red and Black. The method is based on an electronic failure on a random computer program installed into internet and electronic terminals. Please see http://www.insidersystem.com for the latest winning tips and strategies.

There are four simple steps required to use this system, which I will be revealing in a future article. The random program installed into these systems which distributes the numbers is only random within its probability quota.

Well firstly it ensures a fair number allocation and obviously if youre chasing a set number you know it will eventually come in. While admittedly one of the more difficult games to gain an edge in, I have found a few systems that really do make a difference. The System also relies on target structure so that substantial profits can be made and continued.

How Does This Help?

What Does This Mean?

This system has been tried and tested on numerous occasions on internet casino roulette and roulette betting terminals with fantastic results (see http://www.insidersystem.com/roulette.html). Until next time, I hope this information has got you salivating for roulette wins at your favorite casino!

This system is very simple, bear in mind the above explanation of number allocations. Here is an introduction to one of those systems.

About The Author

The random program installed into machines has number allocated occurrence probability. Unlike real table roulette in a casino where a number is never guaranteed to be drawn, computer generated roulette has to provide a balance of numbers ensuring over a large total of spins each number would have been drawn a similar amount of times (within a few percent), this few percent is called the ‘realistic waiver’ which is supposed to add realism to computer generated roulette.

Force the Zero

Yes it’s true: Ellison Mansfield has made a career out of gambling. He’s flown under the radar for virtually his entire adult life, beating the casinos and stockpiling his winnings. Therefore bets on Green 0, Red and Black with a bet placement structure provide the basis of our system. After holding onto these secrets and amassing a private fortune over the past 16 years, he finally decided it was time to come out and share some of his knowledge with the world. This means that every number is given a 1/37 chance of being drawn (0 & 18 Red 18 Black). However this is not enough to invest money in chasing set numbers; however it compliments our FORCE THE ZERO system.

The exceptions are fruit machines which pay with tokens, which has no age limit, lotteries that are local, and football pools, with the latter two having an age limit of 16 and above. They refused to recognize any benefits of gambling.

Three categories of gambling are prevalent in the UK. These are betting, casino style gambling, and lotteries.

The gambling industry in the UK was given a thorough review, approved by the government, during the year 2000. Nevertheless, the new laws remained, and served to regulate not only certain lotteries, bingo, casinos and gaming machines, but also remote gambling and betting.

Back in 1994, the UK government approved a National Lottery, which helped to make gambling seem more mainstream to the public. As more people began to enjoy gambling from the comfort of their homes, and the impacts of Internet gambling became apparent, a change of rules was definitely needed!

More than ten various commissions and trade associations have been established to aid in the monitoring process of gambling. The advent of gambling via the Internet, mobile phone and/or television also served to make the gambling laws that were passed in 1968 seem rather old-fashioned. It recommended that gambling as a whole should be modernized. Many people feel all gambling is wrong, and are quite firm in their belief.

Those who are employed within the gambling industry are held to high standards. The history of gambling is quite a storied one. The most vocal criticism of these liberal gambling laws came from the Methodist Church and the Salvation Army. Sports betting is quite popular, and betting shops offer a location to place a bet via betting terminals, seating to watch the events on television, and enjoy some refreshments as well. This report also suggested that current laws be relaxed to let communities have more freedom of choice concerning their gambling habits. In most cases, a person must be over age 18 in order to gamble. Gambling statistics were studied, and the follow-up to this review was dubbed the Bud Report.

Gambling is an exciting pastime, and there are many options for enjoying the many aspects of it whether you are at home or in a casino. Bookmakers have many tasks. Their concern was that the number of casinos in Britain would grow at an alarming rate. Betting shops and bookmakers also play a big role in the UK gambling scene. Gamblers can also place a bet on the Internet or by way of a telephone call.

A new Gambling Act went into effect in 2007, and the reaction of a large number of people was anything but positive. The types of sports betting in the UK include horse and dog racing.
