Sunday action

More MotoGP to get involved in tonight, althought it's at an odd hour being in the USA. Not sure how liquidity will go up against NFL and various other sports, although to be honest, most MotoGP punters are probably European, so it could be even better than normal. The strategy is simply keep laying the shorties bit-by-bit and take advantage of the changing prices. Give a half-decent price for the punters to take and you'll see action. Don't know the sport? Irrelevant, you just have to understand that most punters will see a price and take it so long as it is half decent, and that with motorbikes, the lead changes so often, that the race is live until the end. And the underclasses are usually better than the main race as the margins you can work to are much higher. You won't make thousands out of it, but you'll return a nice healthy profit on £20 or £50 risks..

And for a punt in La Liga, I fancy Deportivo to beat Villarreal at about 4.2.

  1. Thanks for the advice on the moto gp Scott.
    Made a nice little profit on both races.Did have a red position on Espargaro in the 125gp when the race was stopped, but was green on Terol. Seemed to be a bit of confusion of the rules amongst punters when the race was stopped.
    Cheers Scott.
    Simon.

It's all gone Pete Tong at Betfair!

The Christmas Hurdle from Leopardstown, a good Grade 2 race during the holiday period. But now it will go into history as the race which brought Betfair down. Over £21m at odds of 29 available on Voler La Vedette in-running - that's a potential liability of over £500m. You might think that's a bit suspicious, something's fishy, especially with the horse starting at a Betfair SP of 2.96. Well, this wasn't a horse being stopped by a jockey either - the bloody horse won! Look at what was matched at 29. Split that in half and multiply by 28 for the actual liability for the layer(s). (Matched amounts always shown as double the backers' stake, never counts the layers' risk). There's no way a Betfair client would have £600m+ in their account. Maybe £20 or even £50m from the massive syndicates who regard(ed) Betfair as safer than any bank, but not £600m. So the error has to be something technical. However, rumour has it, a helpdesk reply (not gospel, natur

lay the field - my favourite racing strategy

Dabbling with laying the field in-running at various prices today, not just one price, but several in the same race. Got several matched in the previous race at Brighton, then this race came along at Nottingham. Such a long straight at Nottingham makes punters often over-react and think the finish line is closer than it actually is. As you can see by the number of bets matched, there was plenty of volatility in this in-play market. It's rare you'll get a complete wipe-out with one horse getting matched at all levels, but it can happen, so don't give yourself too much risk...

hope for investors in the Centaur scandal?

In a breaking story, it has been reported that directors of the failed sports investment fund Centaur have had their assets frozen in order to repay investors. It is believed that managing director Keith Sobey skipped town trying to avoid prosecution however he either naively thought Ireland was a safe enough place to hide or had a lingering feeling of guilt and sat waiting for that knock on the door. Sobey, the name behind Centaur ( read the original story here ), is believed to own four houses, worth more in total than the missing £1.6m. His willingness to sell them to repay investors is likely to keep the matter out of the courts, and at least one other director, Andrew Cork, will apparently follow suit. All this adds weight to anecdotal evidence that the collapse of the fund came down to mismanagement rather than fraudulent deeds. As costs grew (why would you set up a training academy in central London?), margins evaporated and keeping the business afloat went through money like
