Juventus Season Preview

Juventus season preview

Despite winning the Serie A title last season under Maurizio Sarri’s guidance, the club opted to sack the Italian due to their poor Champions League showing in favour of bringing in former star Andrea Pirlo.

Having not coached at the highest level, Juventus will be hoping the respect Pirlo will demand due to his remarkable playing career can get the best out of the players.

Gunning for their 10th straight title and to challenge hard for the Champions League, it’ll be fascinating to see how he fares and how he sets out his team. Securing some impressive new signings in the form of Arthur, Weston McKennie and Dejan Kulusevski, they’ll be hoping this will rejuvenate the squad.

Dealing with some big departures such as Gonzalo Higuain, Miralem Pjanic and Blaise Matuidi, losing this experience and quality in midfield especially will take some replacing.

Crucially, Pirlo’s got a strong support team around him in the form of Igor Tudor, Roberto Baronio, Antonio Gagliardi and Paolo Bertelli, which should massively help him.

Seeing how Cristiano Ronaldo performs under the former legend will offer much intrigue, as they’ll be heavily relying on the Portuguese superstar to inspire them to glory.

Meanwhile, on the defensive end, they should be a tough nut to track, with Wojciech Szczesny in goal being flanked by the likes of Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci, Matthijs de Ligt, Merih Demiral and Alex Sandro.

With the likes of Inter Milan, Lazio, Napoli and Atalanta set to provide fierce competition, Juventus certainly won’t have it all their own way despite being priced at a short 1.90.

One thing’s for sure, though, all eyes will certainly be on Pirlo, eagerly awaiting how he goes in his first campaign with the mighty Juventus.

The Monty Hall Problem

Monty Hall Problem

In our latest blog article, we hone our focus towards the Monty Hall Problem and how it works.

Relatively new to the world of trading? Check out VOdds’ guide to sports betting.

To give an explanation of this conundrum, Betfile offers an excellent summation, noting: “The ‘Monty Hall problem’ (as it has become known) is a great example of how, when presented with the task of choosing one favourable outcome against two unfavourable outcomes, we find it almost impossible to correctly address the likelihood of success.”

Named after a game show where the contestants were offered the chance to win a car if they picked the correct door to open of the three available to them, it’s an interesting theory.

Courtesy of Wikipedia

To begin, the player picks a door, but it doesn’t immediately open. Then, the host opens the door and the car isn’t there, meaning you then have two choices available. You then get asked if you want to switch doors. From here, the majority of people believe they have a 50/50 chance of winning, where in reality it’s better than this. In fact, you actually have a 66% percent chance of winning, despite this seeming strange.

The below table created by Statistics by Jim gives a fine reference, where he gives the outcomes of nine scenarios, with the final result ending in a 66% win rate.

While it’s very hard to digest and challenges the way we think, the Monty Hall Problem has caught out many all over. In terms of betting, you can use these principles when working out value and the probability of your selections winning.

So basically if you enhance your awareness and research regarding your picks, you’ll be much better placed to come out on top. The principles of the Monty Problem can definitely help you achieve this.

A look at the Premier League's newly promoted teams

A look at the Premier League’s newly promoted teams

With Leeds United, West Bromwich Albion and Fulham earning promotion to the Premier League, we take a look at their chances for the 2020/2021 campaign.

Relatively new to the world of trading? Check out VOdds’ guide to sports betting.

Leeds

To start with Leeds United, and excitement is rife that they’ll do extremely well under the tactically sophisticated tutelage of manager Marcelo Bielsa. Having had two brilliant seasons in the Championship, which was punctuated by them winning the division last term, the high pressing, relentless attacking Leeds will be fascinating to watch.

Wanting some reinforcements to bolster his squad, the Whites have impressively secured the services of Spanish international forward Rodrigo and German international defender Robin Koch. If reports are to be believed their search for more players is still on. Seeing as Bielsa’s methods take time to adapt to, it’ll be expected the Argentine will pick many of his tried and trusted players from that sealed promotion for their mouthwatering opener vs. Liverpool.

Priced at 4.33 to suffer relegation and 226 to win the league, Leeds will certainly be an entertaining watch as their return to the Premier League after 16 years away is good news for all.

West Brom

Up next is West Bromwich Albion, who finished second in the Championship. With plenty of firepower and creativity upfront in the form of star playmaker Matheus Pereira, Charlie Austin and Hal Robson-Kanu, they notably bagged 77 goals last term. Transferring this record into the EPL will obviously prove tough, but they should still provide plenty of threat.

Boasting a solid defence too and goalkeeper in Sam Johnstone, they’ll certainly be a challenging opponent.

While Oliver Burke has returned following a loan in La Liga at Alaves, they’ve lost some key men, including Nathan Ferguson, Filip Krovinovic and Callum Robinson. But they did, however, secure the services of Grady Diangana permanently after an excellent season on loan. With Robinson set to return on loan too, this will be a big boost for the Baggies.

The fact they have a manager in Slaven Bilic who has plenty of Premier League experience should also help them. Tipped for relegation by many, they’re priced at 2.00 to go down and priced at 501 to be champions.

Fulham

Set to face off with Arsenal to kick off the new season, Scott Parker’s men will be hoping to avoid relegation and put in a solid campaign.

Boosted by some eye-catching transfer dealings, which have seen them bring in Mario Lemina and Harrison Reed to reinforce their midfield ranks. Returning loanees Jean Michael Seri and Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa should be handy too, with the latter especially primed to impact after a superb campaign on loan at Villarreal.

Bringing in gifted former Wigan fullback Antonee Robinson and permanently signing Anthony Knockaert will give them further hope of achieving their goal of survival.

With excellent centre forward Aleksandar Mitrovic leading the line and Ivan Cavaleiro wreaking havoc out wide, in combination with Tom Cairney and the aforementioned mids looking to control things in midfield, they’ll be a nice team to watch.

Getting off to a good start will be pivotal, as they attempt to avoid suffering relegation again. The fact the Cottagers are priced at 1.91 to avoid relegation and 501 to be winners displays the bookies aren’t high on their hopes.

Premier League 2020/2021 Title Favourites

Premier League 2020/2021 Title Favourites

With the Premier League set to get underway in less than two weeks, this offers us a good chance to see who are the favourites to be crowned champions for the 2020/2021 campaign.

Relatively new to the world of trading? Check out VOdds’ guide to sports betting.

Reigning winners, Liverpool, who ran out victors by a whopping 18 points over Manchester City, will certainly be right up there again. But having not bolstered the squad with any star names yet, in combination with how they finished the season quite poorly after lockdown, they come into the season as second favourites. With their 30-year wait for a top flight league now behind them, it’ll take a brave man to write off the quality laden Reds, who are so excellently coached by Jurgen Klopp. Although injuries to their magnificent starting lineup could prove troublesome, they have some gifted younger players coming into the team that will be eager to come in and make an impact. Currently priced at 2.80, this represents decent value, as all eyes will be on their transfer dealings with the colossal opening day clash with newly promoted Leeds United right around the corner.

Next up are the favourites, Manchester City, who are priced at 1.80 to reclaim the Premier League after an unsatisfactory time of it last time around. Managed by the masterful Pep Guardiola, the Spaniard will be desperate to ensure his team hit the ground running especially after their devastating Champions League exit against Lyon. Adding quality young players in Ferran Torres and Nathan Ake, and apparently at the front of the queue to sign wantaway Barcelona star Lionel Messi, this shows their ambition to return to the top. Always brilliant to watch and unquestionably with the best squad in the league, watching how City fare will be intriguing, as the title battle is shaping up as a two horse race between them and Liverpool. Chelsea then come in as third favourites, with their impressive transfer dealings seeing them priced at 11, as Frank Lampard is hoping to build on his strong first season in charge. The likes of Manchester United (15), Arsenal (41) and Tottenham Hotspur (51) seem like outsiders at this stage, but will definitely provide stiff competition as they all are intent on returning to the upper echelons of the division. As the countdown to opening day comes ever closer and excitement grows, it looks like it’ll be a fierce duel between Manchester City and Liverpool at this stage, which will be compulsive viewing just as it was two seasons ago.

Dutch Betting

Dutch Betting

An interesting topic to cover in for our next blog article, Dutch betting offers an intriguing option to delve deeper into.

Relatively new to the world of trading? Check out VOdds’ guide to sports betting.

The way it works is by backing many selections in the same event. This sees you divide your stake into different bets, meaning no matter what selection comes out on top you still profit.

Obviously before placing a Dutch Bet, the right conditions need to exist for you to triumph and win regardless of the result. Key to this is having multiple betting accounts so you take advantage of the favourable odds needed to win.

While you need to undertake your due diligence and look around for the odds to be suitably priced, once you become efficient at this, you’ll see many opportunities come your way.

Consisting of three different types of bet, which are simple, set amount and set profit, these are straightforward to understand. Simple sees your stake on each bet stay the same or be reduced, in order to ensure you win.

The set amount tactic sees you limit your bet to a specific amount. This is typically applied when you’re adding multiple bets into your bet.

Lastly, as the name suggests, set profit has the aim of ensuring you win a desired amount when you place your Dutch bets.

Although it can seem confusing and a lot of work, to make life easier you can use a betting calculator to figure out if Dutching will work on your chosen selections.

Even though it requires plenty of hard work and dedication, Dutching is a solid system if you’re willing to be patient and committed to the process.

3 things: Baseball Betting Considerations

3 Things: Baseball betting considerations

Before placing any bets on baseball matches, there are many things you’ll want to take into account before jumping in. With many different elements to the game and things to learn, familiarising yourself with the rules and how the game is played is vital before you start.

Relatively new to the world of trading? Check out VOdds’ guide to sports betting.

Once you’ve done the above, below are three things to look out for.

Travel

Once you feel ready to go and confident you have the knowledge to begin betting, a great place to start is by considering the travel schedule of teams. Using MLB as an example, and grueling travel can play its part, for teams can be jaded and not feel on top of their game for certain matches.

Courtesy of The Grueling Truth

To do so, you need to analyse their recent match schedules and what time their games are on, as some extra rest can be key. Moreover, taking into account if one team has played an extra innings game and the location of this clash are also something that should be taken note of.

Starting Pitchers

Getting off to an excellent start in any sport is key, and baseball is no different. This makes having a strong roster of starting pitchers key, for they can give you the ideal start you’re looking for from which teams can build from.

This therefore makes the starting pitcher an absolutely integral element of the game, with many bettors choosing which teams to bet on based purely on who the starting pitcher will be.

Obviously undertaking your research on this and doing your due diligence is key before betting, as you don’t want to overlook other factors that can impact your bet too.

Umpires

Seeing as different umpires have their own subtly varying ways of operating, this can work in your favour if you are shrewd at identifying certain characteristics.

Courtesy of Online Gambling Sites

Seeing as some umpires have tighter or looser strike zones, this can impact what pitches are considered strikes and which aren’t. This can advantage or disadvantage pitchers and batters quite heavily so spotting such patterns can be crucial.

A good example to use is if a pitcher is calling less strikes, this can lead to more hitters getting on base and more runs overall being scored.

While it seems like an inconsequential factor, it can actually play quite a role in proceedings.

Sports Trading Strategies

Sports Trading and Trading Strategies To Utilize

Understanding Sports Trading

When you think about traditional bookmaking, it has been around for more than a century. Punters have been placing many bets on sports since years ago. It was also in the 1900s when online gambling came into the picture, and as is often the case when it comes to technology, it paved the way for the creation of a new way of sports betting. During the 2000s, Betfair was born. This is a betting exchange that facilitated peer-to-peer betting. Because of it, today’s punters can now find some of the best trading platforms to earn a profit.

Through a trading platform, punters could take on the role of the bookmaker if they wanted to. They can set their own prices and wait for their selection to be matched. They also become sports traders. Sports traders are just like stock traders, but instead of buying and selling shares of a company, they instead sell bets on sporting events.

What is Sports Trading?

Sports trading revolves around “backing” and “laying” sports betting odds for a profit before the sporting event comes to an end. When you say backing, this is considered as betting while laying is bookmaking. The aim of sports traders is to lay low and back high. In this way, they can earn profit either in-play or even before the event.

This will give you an edge against the rest since you’ll know what will help you stay ahead of the curve. This can be being informed about team selection, head to head stats, and injury news, among others. 
  • Make Use of Back to Lay – This is one of the popular trading strategies, wherein you have to find a horse/team/player to back the price that will latterly fall for many reasons and then laying them at the new price so that you can guarantee a return despite the result. You can often use this in football markets and horse races.
  • Laying the Draw – This trading strategy is convenient for sports that have three possible results. By laying the draw, you should pay attention to the price for a draw that is fluctuating based on the action on the pitch.
  • Scalping – This strategy will require you to have a considerable bankroll to make price fluctuations and make the market work for you. It is trading minuscule odds movements. You need to have a keen mind if you want this strategy to be successful.

Relatively new to the world of trading? Check out VOdds’ guide to sports betting.

Considering what a key influence pitchers can have on matches, it makes perfect sense to analyse this, for it can have a huge role in whether you succeed or fail. If done correctly, it’s important to note how you can then apply your knowledge to a large array of types of betting.

With so many statistical and data resources available online for punters to take advantage of, you can find out so many different stats you can use towards determining your selections. You can then uncover how certain hitters fare against them, if they perform better home or away and follow an array of metrics to support your potential bets.

It’s crucial to keep monitoring the numbers as the season progresses to see any trends in performance of certain pitchers and pitching units as a hole.

Watching the games to accompany the numbers is also worthwhile so you might be able to spot some patterns or get a gauge on if what you’re thinking is a good choice.

Although it can be an extremely time consuming task to persistently keep checking pitcher stats and performance levels, if you’re committed and have patience you’ll be well on your way to gaining an edge and profiting.

These are betting stats that, when combined together, will produce excellent outcomes. The Match winner stats will show you how often a given team has won at home, away or when there was a draw in a game. By checking out these stats, you’ll be able to determine and quantify the benefit that team A, for instance, will have when playing at home or away. On the other hand, Goals per match betting stats will give you a thorough understanding of the efficiency of a certain team or player. By understanding these stats, you can utilize markets with relatively high odds.

#2 Over/Under Goals Tables

Futures Betting

Futures Betting

While futures betting isn’t the most commonly used method of betting, it still has its merits for those who have plenty of patience and foresight.

Relatively new to the world of trading? Check out VOdds’ guide to sports betting.

When placing a futures bet, this type of betting sees you wager on an event to happen usually months down the track. Typically placed on things like who’ll win the league title or top goalscorer, to use football as an example, these bets see you often put your money down before the season starts.

Courtesy of Sports Betting Dime

Despite the odds being quite favourable due to the outcome being decided in the distant future, this can be a drawback for many due to the long wait times for your bet to win or lose. Seeing as so much has to go right for you to determine whether you triumph or fail with your bet, it’s understandable the odds are usually decent even for favourites.

On the other hand, if your chosen side starts their campaign badly, they still have plenty of time to recover. In addition, you don’t have to worry about betting on all the games, instead relying on a large section of matches to allow your team to prevail. This subsequently gives them the chance to recover from a bad start or a mid season lull.

Courtesy of Bovada

A fine example from betting website, The Lines, provides an apt description of this format. “For example, New York Jets fans could place a $10 wager on the Jets to win the Super Bowl at 80-1 odds (+8000) in a New Jersey casino. A winning result would pay the bettor a cool $800 for the wager that will last from the first game of the season to the final play of the Big Game,” it states.

Requiring you to wait and remain calm as you observe how your bet is faring, futures betting is certainly not for everyone. But if you’re content remaining patient and unfazed by the large wait times, it’s a viable option for many.
