Beat the Bookie - Tips for Use
Open, validate and fund bookies accounts in advance – odds can change quickly and without warning. You need to minimize the chance of odds moving part way through placing the bets.
Prioritise the order you place the bets. Place the most generous odds first, these are the ones most likely to change as the bookie realizes it’s odds are out of line with the market generally - by inspection of the market odds you will be able to see which bookies are most out of line. Place the larger money bets as these are the ones most likely to be scaled down if the bet size is too large.
Check directly with the bookies website involved that you are booking of the event and precise outcome you think you are. Sometimes the comparison sites show non-comparable odds alongside eachother suggesting a generosity that does not really exist.
If possible check what the maximum bet you can make with a particular bookie is. Some show this and some do not. If not, start small and do not get too greedy, until you get a feel for what a particular limit is.
Start with 2 outcome events, eg head to head tennis, outright winner.
Finding bets with best besting percentage (BPP) less than 100%. Get a feel for when bookies launch their odds for events. Tennis events are good ones to check – new games every couple of days and a liquid world betting markets. Football matches can give good odds too, especially close to kick off as individual bookies look to balance their books.
Remember that the BPP quoted online will not include any commission payable on winnings with some bookies such Betfair or Betdaq. Check if the bet is still viable within the app by adding in your own personal commission rate with the relevant site.
