I’m a sports editor for a sports news and betting website. I have many years of experience in gambling. sports

journalism and math education Am I a gambling expert? I think you can say

There are countless gambling experts willing to provide their systems information to ‘Beat the bookies’ or earn extra

money by betting with fixed odds. I won’t do that I will give information about the bookmaker. The odds and bets are

for you to use (or forget) as you see fit.

The first thing to mention is that most people who gamble will be net losers over time. This is why there are so many

bookmakers that make so much money all over the world.

While some bookmakers can be very popular, for example, if the favorite team wins the Grand National. They

diversify widely and set up a market that includes margin. So they will always make profits in the medium to long

term, if not short term, that is, as long as they get the money right.

When determining the odds for a particular event The bookmaker must first assess the likelihood of an event

occurring. in doing this We, therefore, use various statistical models. This is based on information gathered over many

years or decades. Regarding the sport and the team/competitors in question, of course, if the sport is 100%

predictable it will soon lose its attractiveness. And while bookies are often seen as estimating the likelihood of a

match. But sometimes they go out of their way. Just because a match or competition goes on with conventional

wisdom and statistical possibilities

Just look at any sport and you’ll find the loser’s chances of real winning all the odds. For example, Wimbledon beat

great Liverpool in the 1988 FA Cup final, or the United States defeated the great Soviet Union in That time at the

1980 Olympics ice hockey was two examples of when you had an advantage against the underdogs. and can win a suitable wedge

Major bookmakers spend a lot of time and money making sure they have the right odds, which makes sure they take

into account the perceived probabilities of an event and add a little more to that. give them a profit margin

Therefore, if an event has a probability of 1/3, then the chance reflecting that probability is 2/1, i.e. two-to-one with the event occurring.

However, the bookmaker who determines these odds will break even. (assuming their stats are correct) overtime. So

instead of setting the odds at 6/4 this way, they have created a margin to ensure that over time they profit from those

who bet on this selection. It’s the same concept as casino roulette.

So how do you spot the chance that the bookmaker is wrong?

One way is to do well in mathematical modeling and to set up a model that takes into account the many variables

that affect the outcome of an event as much as possible. The problem with this tactic is no matter how complex the

model is. And how does it seem to cover all aspects? It cannot explain the subtleties of variables related to the

individual human state of mind. Whether or not a golfer manages a five-foot putt that wins the big on Day 18 at St

Andrews is as much about their concentration. with the weather or the day of the week. Also, math can start to get complicated.

Or you can find yourself on a sports channel. The bookie will focus their resources on the events that make them

the most money. It is commonly found as football (soccer) American football. and horse racing So trying to beat a

bookmaker while betting on the Manchester United vs Chelsea match will be difficult. unless you work for one of the

clubs or marry one of the players or managers Most likely, the bookmaker who determines the odds has more information than you.

However, if you bet on non-league football, badminton, or bowling, green bowling is possible with a lot of hard work,

reading a lot of statistics, and gathering general information. You can start to have an advantage over the bookmaker.

(Even if set prices for things that many people do)

And what do you do when you have an advantage in terms of data? you follow up

Value bets are where you back up your choice with odds that are greater than the actual probability of an event

occurring. For example, if you estimate the probability of a non-league football team (eg Grimsby Town). To win the

next football match is 1/3 or 33% and you find the bookmaker set the odds to 3/1, you bet the value in your hand.

The reason is the 3/1 odds ( Excluding margin generated by the bookmaker) indicates a 1/4 or 25% probability.

Underestimated Grimsby’s chances. So you can effectively make an 8% profit for yourself.

Of course, Grimsby (as usual) might not play well and won’t win matches.
