How to bet on corners

When it comes to football betting, the first thing you might want to do in order to win is to keep things simple. If you’re not organized and not following the statistics, there are lots of ‘special’ bet types out there that can do quite some damage to your inspiration in choosing the right outcome. Corner betting might seem to fit in this category, but the truth is that this can be one of the most profitable betting methods, especially for betting online on live games.

The reason why Corner betting is regarded as a complex betting method is that it requires quite a lot of time to study the past interactions between the opponent teams, the tactics, the average number of corners per game, or even the weather conditions, factors that most certainly can determine the corner outcome.

There are a lot of corner betting types available, most of them being used in live betting:

Most corners in a game:
This is a very simple bet, where you have to predict which team will benefit of the most corner kicks during 90 minutes. The downside is that if the number or corners is the same, the bet will be lost. Most commonly, the odds favor the team expected to attack more during the game.

Number or corners:
Guessing the number of corners is also a popular method. This offers the possibility of betting on the total number of corners scored by both or a single team against a fixed number, set by the bookmakers (usually between 9 and 11). The method can be very profitable only if you know very good the teams and the past game`s history. For example, in the 2012 season, after 30 games played, Arsenal had an average of 12 corners per match – this kind information can prove to be very useful if you want this strategy to be the winning one.

Corner handicap:
It’s also possible to bet on a difference in the corner result at the end of a game. This handicap is set by the bookmakers and may vary from one game to another. The bet is a winner if the team with the minus handicap overcomes the difference in number of corners.

There are various other corner betting types out there (such as Most corners in first/second half, Race to 3 corners, Half corners over/under, and so on). All of these have in common the same winning principle: study the statistics thoroughly before placing the bet – it’s true what they say, knowledge is power!

Labouchere Betting Strategy

The Labouchere betting strategy like all betting strategy is a numbers game. It is Mathematically sound until you either run out of money or until you reach the Table limits, either one then spells disaster.

The idea of the Labouchere strategy is to work through one complete set of numbers and collect your profit. The labouchere strategy works like this. Write a sequence of numbers down on a piece of paper 1 2 3 4 5 6. The idea is you bet using both ends of your numbered sequence. So your first bet would be 1+ 6 = 7. Your first bet would be $7. If you win the bet great you then cross out number 1 and 6, as you have used them already. You would then bet the next to outside numbers in the sequence, which would be 2+ 5 = 7. which again would be $7 you also win this bet great you bet 3+4 again = 7 or $7 win the bet your home free and $21 up.

However if you bets lose you add the total of the bet to the end of the sequence and carry on the game. Example. If your first bet was 1+ 6 = 7. and you bet $7 and lost. You would then add the number 7 to the end of your sequence which would now look like this. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7. You then proceed with your Labouchere betting strategy and bet the first and last numbers 1 + 7 = 8. The problem with this strategy is if you have a lot of losses you can end up with a very long sequence of numbers and no money left, As like all betting systems they have their pitfalls.

The Labouchere betting strategy is whats known as a negative progressive system also known as “Crossout”, “Cancellation” or “Split Martingale” system so be ware of it in all its forms and tread carefully when using it.

Winning Baseball Betting Systems

Winning baseball betting systems and sound money management are critical to your long-term success betting on baseball and other sports.

What makes sports betting different than other gambling activities is that sports are played by humans and humans, like you and me, hate to lose. Sports betting systems can help you find teams that are extra motivated to win!

It is important to note that a win percentage by itself is usually very misleading. For instance, System #1 in the Free Baseball Betting Guide produced an overall 67.7% win percentage in 2011. However, the average odds for all games was -163, meaning that you would need a 61.98% win percentage to break even.

We encourage you to resist the temptation of slick marketing campaigns and slimy salespersons whose sole purpose is to steal your money. They do not care if you make money; only that “they” make a lot of money. Read about a few popular Online Gambling Scams.

Instead of getting other people rich, take the time to learn about baseball betting systems so that you can cut out over-priced, under-performing handicappers.

Japan – New Zealand Betting Preview

With the World Cup only three months away, Alberto Zaccheroni’s men host the All Whites in Tokyo and Hugh Wilson is backing plenty of action at the net on Wednesday

Japan host New Zealand in Tokyo on Wednesday looking to kick-start their preparation for the World Cup finals taking place in Brazil in June. Alberto Zaccheroni’s side were one of the first teams to qualify for the tournament, with their opponents in this friendly missing out in the play-offs, where they lost to Mexico 9-3 over two legs.

Interim coach Neil Emblen will be hopeful that his side react positively after those disappointing results, especially with a summer off for the majority of his players. William Hill price them at 10/1 (11.00) to scupper Japan’s preparation and win in Tokyo.

The hosts have not played a competitive match in their last seven fixtures after qualifying early for the World Cup. Last year saw them play a number of high-profile friendlies, though, with matches against Belgium, Netherlands, Serbia and Ghana.

With only two friendlies, including this game, arranged before their first group match against Ivory Coast on 15th June, the players will be looking to impress to cement their starting place in Brazil. William Hill price them at just 1/4 (1.25) to win the match, with the same firm pricing the draw at 4/1 (5.00).

With the starting line-ups tough to predict in these friendlies, it is tough to find a standout bet in this fixture in player-specific markets and these are best avoided.

However, you can go by previous form in friendlies and Japan are far too short at 1/4 (1.25) so it is worth looking elsewhere for a bet that stands out that partly sides with New Zealand in some way. Over 2.5 goals at 7/10 (1.70) also seems a tad skinny but both teams to find the net at 13/8 (2.63) looks like it offers plenty of value with William Hill.

Japan have only kept one clean sheet in their last 13 matches and, with Zaccheroni’s side scoring five in their last two friendlies, goals being scored should not be a problem.

New Zealand have scored in 11 of their last 13 games, including three goals against Mexico, and have the likes of Chris Wood and Shane Seltz to call upon up front so this bet looks particularly overpriced.

Aston Villa vs Norwich Predictions and Betting Tips

Aston Villa vs Norwich betting tips and predictions for Sunday’s 4.30pm kick-off in the Premier League with both sides needing a win at the bottom half.

There’s no doubt who’s feeling more confident about this game between two teams in the relegation dogfight this season. Norwich have been buoyed by winning against Tottenham at Carrow Road, possibly saving Chris Hughton’s job, while Villa were sucker punched at Newcastle by Loic Remy’s stoppage time winner.

So can the Canaries build on that win this Sunday? It’s possible as Villa Park is hardly a fortress with just three wins out of thirteen this season, and as long as Norwich don’t leave themselves too open for a counter attack, Villa don’t have any Plan B to score a goal.

Unfortunately Norwich’s away record permits me from having complete faith in their ability to get three points; two wins and two draws out of their thirteen away games is what’s dragging them down the table, and just eight goals scored suggests a lack of ideas on how to improve that. Hughton’s overall record of four wins in 32 away games for Norwich only puts me off further backing the away win.

While 3/1 for Norwich to win is tempting due to Villa’s record, I can’t back them with any confidence for my football betting tips, and with statistics like those I pointed out and the fact that both teams are level on points (28), this contest has stalemate written all over it for me. The draw is a best price 12/5 with Ladbrokes.

The over/under of 2.5 goals is almost a surefire to be the under, though 3/4 suggests that others realise that too; Villa haven’t scored in their last three league games, while Norwich have only scored in six of their last twelve, and only scored one in each of the other six.

If there’s at least one goal in the game, look out for Norwich to score in the opening 15 minutes; Villa have shipped seven in this time frame so far this season. The man to take advantage of Villa’s slow start should be Gary Hooper; I was very surprised when he didn’t start last Sunday’s game, and when he came on for the ineffectual Ricky van Wolfswinkel, he worried Tottenham’s defence straight away with his pace. Houghton surely won’t make the same mistake again, and the former Celtic man could be a good catch at 7/1 to open the scoring with William Hill.

As for Villa, the fact that they won’t have the space to attack at home negates a lot of their attributes, such as Gabby Agbonlahor’s pace, so look out for Christian Benteke (7/5 anytime) to get on the end of a cross (scored most headed goals in the PL this season). Andreas Weimann is also worth some thought (12/5 anytime) as he returned from injury with a sub appearance last week; he has a bit of cunning about him with the ability to find space against a packed defence and he could score a priceless goal for his team.

Aston Villa vs Norwich Betting Tips

Match Result: Draw at 12/5 (Ladbrokes)

Gary Hooper to score first at 7/1 (William Hill)

Christian Benteke to score anytime at 7/5 (Bet 365)

In-play betting on football matches with Bet at home

Live betting on football matches is one of the most exciting types of sports betting and the bookmakers like bet-at-home, try to make it even more interesting by offering a wide variety of curious betting options. Here are some of them that you can find in the bet-at-home slips for the matches of all the major European football championships.

One of the most curious betting options that is offered by the bookie is named ‘What will happen first in the half?’ Here you can choose from a throw-in, a goal-kick, a goal, a free-kick and a corner kick to happen first in either of the halves. According to the odds offered by the bookmaker the most likely to happen is the throw-in, as the odds for such a bet are usually around 1.6 and 1.7. The most unlikely to happen first in the beginning of a half is to be scored a goal, as the provided odds for this bet are often above 30.

Another interesting bet offered for live betting on football matches from bet-at-home is called ‘How will the 1st goal be scored?’ The possible variations are by a shoot (which of course has the lowest offered coefficient), by a free kick, by an own goal (which is the option with the highest odds offered), by a header and by a penalty kick. It is important to mention that if there is no goal in the match the bet will be returned.

When talking about curious live betting options we must mention the options for betting with bet-at-home such as a penalty awarded in the match and whether some of the players will be sent off by the referee.

Of course, bet-at-home offers a full range of the usual for the biggest bookies betting options such as when the first goal will be scored, for a goal in a specified period of time and many bets for the final score of the match.

Newcastle vs Manchester City – prediction and analysis

The head to head statistic for the matches between Newcastle and Manchester City shows that the last eight matches in the Premier League were won by the team from Manchester. The last victory for Newcastle was on September 24, 2005. Quite shocking news if you’re a fan of Newcastle United before their match at home against one of the strongest teams in the Premier League right now.

The match starts at 14:05 on Sunday and is going to be really important for the fight for the title in England. At the moment three teams are separated by only two points at the top of the standing, with Chelsea holding the first place with 46 points. They are followed by Arsenal with 45 and Manchester City with 44, but both teams have a game in hand.

Two weeks ago, Newcastle lost at home against Arsenal with 0:1 and at the same stadium in the early November Chelsea was defeated by 2-0. This makes the possible City’s win here really important, given that exactly the points taken from such hard to beat teams like Newcastle are going to be decisive for the title race.

The guests from Manchester City come with all their strength and currently enjoy a run of five straight wins and eight in their last ten matches. The team is a real monster at home where they defeat every opponent. The good news for the City’s supporters is that they managed to stabilize their performances away from home and win several matches in a row.

Will Newcastle oppose in any way to the power of Manchester City? It seems highly unlikely and most analysts believe the speed of the players from City will overpower everything the home team can offer. On the other hand, the chances for the home team in this match are highly underestimated by the bookies, which makes the match especially convenient for those who seek surprises and higher odds.

A draw here is not so impossible, however Williah Hill offers 3.8 for this bet. The proposal of bet-at-home and bet365 is 4, which makes it even a better bet. However, I don’t want to risk too much and I am going to bet with bet365′s proposal with Asian Handicap for a victory for the hosts with +1 margin. The coefficient is only 1.73, but this would be a losing bet only if the away team wins by two or more goals.

Betting prediction for Manchester United vs Swansea

Manchester United have been experiencing their worst season for more than twenty years and this is hardly a dream start for David Moyes to his career as a manager at Old Trafford. The pressure over the successor of Sir Alex Ferguson is increased day by day and there are even some fans who already want his immediate replacement and appointment of a new manager.

Today Manchester United is going to play at home with Swansea whose players are ready to do their best to continue the black series of three consecutive defeats in all competitions for the Red Devils. The match will start at 17.30 and will be really interesting and also extremely difficult to predict.

If we look more closely at United’s form we should see that it is not a constant phenomenon. Just before making the three game losing streak, the team was in another series, but this time with six consecutive wins in all competitions. Although they didn’t beat any of the big teams in Britain or Europe for United things started to look much better before the New Year’s eve to cut their winning strike. Most analysts point as the reason for the losses the change of the managers or even David Moyes himself. However, there are some others who see the reason for the unsuccessful results mostly in the squad and in the fact that Sir Alex Ferguson has left to David Moyes an exhausted team, which needs at least a few years to be restored to its full glory.

Anyway, United no longer scares anyone and Swansea is coming to Old Trafford to take some points. The self confidence of the guests is boosted by the fact that they already defeated the Red Devils only six days ago for the League Cup, so they know exactly what to do to get the points and they will most likely do it.

The bookies prefer United as a favourite in the match, with the suggestions of bet365 are – 1.6 for a win for United, 4 for a draw and 6.5 for a Swansea’s win. Respectively, the coefficients proposed by bet-at-home are 1.55, 3.9 and 5.8, and by William Hill 1.5, 4.2 and 6.5.

Especially attractive is the proposal of bet365 for Asian Handicap with an added goal for the visitors. The odds for their victory at this bet is 1.93, which is more than good and would be my bet for this match.
