1.01 beaten in biathlon


Now do you believe me that it's a great trading sport? Until the final round of shooting is finished, they should never be 1.01.

Jonsson looked like she hit the front at the last round of shooting when Tora Berger started missing, but then Jonsson missed some too and Andrea Henkel shot clear to win.

This Mass Start format is great, a mad rush and they're all out on the course together.

  1. Well you did just warn all the money buyers with your previous post! Biathlon looks like a very interesting prospect to trade indeed, unfortunately my knowledge of the sport and runners is zero, not much of an edge. I can imagine a veteran biathlon trader would clean up with so many swings.

  2. the best way to start is just by trying to lay them all at odds-on, say £5 at 1.8, and then watch how the race unfolds. Once you start picking up on what makes a good biathlete, it really does become very interesting!

    I wrote this basic guide to the sport a couple of years ago - http://betting.betfair.com/education/sports/biathlon/

    Where it does help to know the runners is in the Sprint and Individual events, where they go out at 30sec breaks. It then helps to know who the better shooters are, and who skis faster to make up for their imperfect shooting.

    Ruhpolding this week is traditionally one of the biggest events of the season - just watch the massive party in the crowd, despite the freezing conditions.

  3. Will certainly have a closer look, thanks for the heads up.
