Sub-market betting – 15th September 2012
We have been testing features over the last few weeks and will test another, being the sub-markets. Did you usually top flight have in excess of 100 markets pre-match and in play. Why take an outcome, which may be 90 minute, dependent, where you can bet on other markets, which may/may not require the full match time.
We will look at the double chance market this week, as well as time of first goal markets.
The double chance market is basically a +1 market, which has been around for a long time. Renamed and repackaged, double chance gives you exactly what it says on the tin. You can bet on either team to win, home win or draw or away win and draw. The odds are generally very short and sometimes not back able due to the price. This market is particularly handy on betting on teams you think will not lose!
Time of first goal is exactly as it states, will there be an early goal? Usually each match will be priced up in over or under minutes.
Time of first goal:
Our first game looks at Barnsley versus Blackpool. Blackpool have had just once occurrence of scoring in the first 30 minutes and Barnsley have had none. Coral are best 11/10 for the first goal beyond 28 minutes, and with having Barnsley at home, they will be defending in front of their home crowd. Double chance betting We have ignored the timings of goals being scored and conceded and think the price represents value.
Recommended betting – time of first goal: over 28 minutes 11/10 Coral
Bournemouth entertain Hartlepool on the last of our games in this market. Five of the home sides goals have been scored beyond the half hour mark, and six have been conceded at the same point or beyond. Hartlepool have netted just one and conceded one in the same timeframe, which makes Coral’s price of even money on 28 minutes or beyond represents excellent value.
Recommended betting – time of first goal: over 28 minutes 1/1 Coral
There are some cracking matches to choose from this weekend. We have picked out a 2.78 four-fold at Bwin We immediately turn to Aston Villa and Swansea. Swansea pushed Sunderland all the way in their last game pushing a 2-2 draw. Villa have not won this season and Swansea are yet to lose. Swansea are best 8/13 at Coral to avoid losing if you want the best price on the single.
Oxford need to stop their losing run and can do at Burton. Oxford have a surplus of a goal, whereas Burton have a deficit of two goals and have only won two in five. Oxford will want at least a point away to stop the rot, and we think they are strong enough to salvage a draw with a best price 2/5 at Bwin and Ladbrokes. Next up on our line is a banker in Norway with Molde at home chasing for the title. They have picked up points in seven of their last ten matches, whereas opponents Haugesund have picked up points in five out of ten. Molde are strong at home and should avoid losing. Lastly we pick banker AC Milan who entertain Atlanta and rarely lost at the San Siro.
Four fold pays 2.78 at Bwin
