This is time to reflect back on what you did during the 2016/2017 season.



What betting mistakes did you make ?

Taking to many legs in a bet ?
Trying to make up losses ?
Betting to much of your bankroll ?
Betting emotionally ?
To many low priced (below 5 to 10) away winners ?

You need to be totally honest with yourself. The more you know and understand why you do things the stronger you will become.

Start developing your betting plan for next season.



Bankroll, strategy, tools, websites that will help you. The more knowledge and understanding you have, the better your chances of a profitable season !

How do I find the best games ?

I am a computer programmer with an interest in soccer analysis. I have written over 2.5 goal prediction as well as HT draw prediction software. I run these programs every week over the upcoming fixtures. I also evaluate the upcoming games looking for value bets. These 'VALUE BETS' happen when the bookmakers get the price of an outcome wrong.

What is a 'VALUE' bet ?

A value bet, is when the price of an outcome in a game is priced lower than the actual probability. So a price of 6 to 10 has a probable outcome of (1/1.6) 62.5%. If we know the expected probably is really 80% we would expect the 'correct bookmaker' price to be 2.5 to 10 (1/1.25). So in this case we are getting a good deal to take the bet, because they are giving us a 0.35 advantage.

Predictions look like this


Hamburg v Wolfsburg

#1 Pick Wow, relegation to be decided by a winner takes all last day clash. Neither team can play for a draw here. Hamburg have to win ! No other result will save them. Their away form in the Bundesliga has been disgusting this season. But at home they have been OK, just a poor 1-3 result to Darmstadt really hurting them.

Home Win - Odds 2.7

Celtic v Hamilton

#1 Pick Celtic are just so dominant in the Scottish Premier League. They could probably play games without a goalkeeper and still win. They have been NO to both teams to score in 9 of their last 10 home games. They win almost every game at home. Odds of 1.67 are pretty good for this bet, but the Celtic win to NIL at 1.73 is probably a better option.

NO BTTS --- Odds 1.67

Liverpool v Crystal Palace

This is another excellent opportunity for Palace. They can play a defensive game, frustrate the opponent, and bomb forward on the break, and at set pieces. Palace definitely have the weapons to hurt teams. They have pace and skill, and are really a mid-table team, that has underperformed.

There is absolutely no value on the Liverpool win here (odds 1.53). If Palace can beat Chelsea and Arsenal, they can definitely cause an upset against Liverpool.

Away Win - Odds 6.5

Rotherham v Ipswich

Both teams are struggling for 1st half goals. Rotherham have scored just 1 goal in their last 8 1st half games at home. Ipswich have just 2 goals in 7 away games. These 1st half goal numbers, should also translate into an under 2.5 goal game.

HT 0-0 - Odds 3.25

Lyon v Metz

Amazingly Lyon have not drawn a 1st half in the league at home in 10 games. They have won 8 of their last 10 1st half games at home. They are up against a really poor travelling team in Metz. Metz have lost 5 of their last 6 1st half games on the road. They have scored just 1 goal in 6 away games. The HT/FT home win looks good here.

Home Win HT/FT --- Odds 1.8

Betting LOW Odds Games

A low priced game is when the obvious result is expected. Normally the favorite is priced down, somewhere below 1.55 or 5.5 to 10. The question that often comes up is ...

"Can you win by betting on low priced games ?"

Well, the answer is YES, but you need to be making smarter bets. My #1 piece of advice for low priced bets is this.

Don't bet on low priced AWAY wins.

Even really good teams battle to win away games. At 5 to 10 odd
