U.K. Football Correct Score Betting:
There's good money to be made out or Correct Score Football Betting and gradually, the big bookmakers are trying counter measures in an attempt
to reduce their liabilities.
Ladbroke and Coral will not accept Aussie Correct Scores, the remaining Aussie odds-layers, will add the words "Singles Only" to their coupons. Currently, most U.K. betting shops accept
Correct Score Doubles, Trebles, etc. on U.K. football matches.
The special coupons can be located on most betting shop counters from each Tuesday onwards. In the event of all the coupons being used or missing a normal betting slip can be used. Ensure you date your betting slip for the Saturday in question and you'll see the actual instructions/wording below.
Currently, in even matched games, a score of 2-1 (home or away) is approximately 9/1 and 3-2 (either way) is 25/1 or 28/1. So a 2-1 Treble
yields 1000/1 and the worst 3-2 Double pays 625/1.
My approach, in an attempt to snare a 1000/1 Treble, is to select ten matches and to perm any 3 from 10, in 120 Trebles. Obviously, I avoid all the
Manchester United V Barnsley’s and I believe 2-1s are easier to find than 1-2s.
The individual match prices are a good guide as to who's going to win 2-1. Seek marginally (4/5, 8/11 etc.) odds-on home sides. Another good guide is
to purchase a weekly Racing and Football Outlook from a good newsagents on a Wednesday. They devote four tabloid size pages to football.
As said, any 3 from 10 is 120 Trebles and cheaper Perms are 3 from 8 (56) and 3 from 9 (84). There's no very simple way of calculating Trebles, but it is done as follows:
If you wish to know 3 from 16, you draw a horizontal line and below the line you write 1x2x3 and above the line you put 16x15x14. Then divide above the line by below the line for the answer - 560.
Calculating Doubles is simplicity itself. If you wish to know how many Doubles in, say 20, you take the number below the 20, half the even number
and multiply the two together. So Doubles in 20 is 190 (19x10).
On U.K. football 3-2 is a fairly reasonably common score and at a minimum match price of 25/1 the Double is a very tasty 625/1. Any 2 from, say 15
is 105 Doubles and the Doubles can be from 1p upwards - so at 10p the wager would cost Ј10.50 and at 1p the stake is Ј1.05p.
One things for absolute sure, you'll find more 9 and 25/1 football winners, than similarly priced horse race winners. Each week there will be roughly twenty (out of fifty-odd), 9/1 and 25/1 football winners on the coupon.
Finding the 3-2s is not an impossibility. Seek home sides who average two home-goals per game, that are marginally odds-on, playing sides that are
averaging at least one away goal per away game.
I shouldn't be telling you this and I hope not too many readers try this approach, or it'll be Singles only from mid-September. Eliminate all the Home/Away "bankers" and cover the residue in 3-2 Doubles (any 2 from, say 35) and you'll win money over the season.
Now for the instructions: Having decided how many matches you wish to cover in Doubles or Trebles and at what score, you simply do this:
Find the Correct Score Column and enter 2-1 (for example) in the ten appropriate boxes (for example). Then turn the coupon sideways and write (for example) "120x10p Win Trebles" and then enter Ј12.00p in the Total Stake box.
Should you wish to try 3-2 doubles, then use a different coupon (one wager per coupon) and write 3-2 in your 20 selected boxes and sideways write (for example) "190x1p (for example) Win Doubles" and enter Ј1.90p in the Total Stake box.
Should the coupons be absent, then borrow a duplicate coupon from behind the betting shop counter (for the match numbers) and then write on a betting slip "Football Correct Scores 30.08.97 matches 7, 11, 18, 27 etc.
(Put a ring around the match numbers) all 3-2 in 120x10p Win Doubles".
Do likewise for your 2-1 Win Trebles. Ask the counter-hand to check you haven't "under" or "over" staked your wager.
FIXED ODDS FOOTBALL
The onset of regular televised football matches has brought about a tremendous opportunity in football betting. Let me explain.
Football matches are a lot easier to predict than horse races. There are only three possible outcomes Home Win- Away Win- Or Draw and football matches are much more likely to come true than horse races. Consequently bookmakers have always been very cautious when it comes to football bets.
Ideally if we could back say, the two biggest ‘bankers’ of the day on any fixed odds coupon, although we would have quite a short priced double we would have a fairly safe bet. The problem is the bookmakers will not allow it…. SO IT MUST BE A GOOD BET FOR THE PUNTERS!
They have always had a minimum number of selections for different bets. Traditionally if you were backing home wins you would need to make a minimum of FIVE selections, and three would be the minimum for away wins. So if you wanted to back the home win bankers, you would have to make five different selections and therefore as the chances of one game not going to form is greatly increased, the odds of the bet being successful are greatly reduced. So the bookmaker is a lot happier!
However things have now changed. The games that are televised live are exceptions to the normal betting regulations. Bookmakers accept single bets upwards on these TV games. That in itself isn’t a great help as most of the televised games are very competitive, and cannot in any way be classed as banker bets. However, here’s what we can do to make the most of the situation…...
We select one strong win banker bet – you will see how in a moment, and we put this banker in three separate lines on one coupon with the televised game, and the TV game is covered for a home win on the first line, an away win on the second line, and a draw on the third line. This way no matter what happens in the televised game, so long as the banker is successful, you will have a winning bet. Obviously you will have reduced overall odds as there will be two losing lines, but if you select the banker correctly then you will always show a profit.
To select the banker, here’s what you do. Use an away win banker as they are always better odds. You should use the shortest priced away win selection on the coupon, but not odds on. You should find the shortest priced away win that is evens or better. If two or more matches qualify you should use the one nearest the top of the coupon. Let’s call it match A. Your bet consists of three doubles, betting on Match A as an away win in each double, and covering the TV game for home, away and draw.
Your entry will look like this:
Match A: A A A
TV Game: H A D
This bet will usually pay out odds of 4-1 or more and make a profit after deducting the two losing lines.
STAKING: Start the season with a betting bank of whatever you can afford and put 5% on your first bet, so if you start with a bank of Ј100 your first bet would be Ј5, this stake is split into five equal parts. Put two-fifths on the bet for a TV game home win, two-fifths on the TV game away win and one-fifth on the TV game draw (the combined odds are greater on this line). So with a Ј5 stake you would put Ј2 on AH, Ј2 on AA and Ј1 AD.
If your banker bet loses and you get no return you should double the total stake for next weeks bet and continue doing so until you get a winning bet, and then revert to 5% of your bank again. Normally doubling stakes is a bad idea in gambling, however bear in mind that you are betting very safe bets. It is unlikely that you will go more than 2-3 bets without a winning return.
You should leave your winnings in your betting bank and allow it to accumulate over the course of the season. You will be amazed at how quickly your profits will grow, and with very minimal risk. You should always revert back to 5% stake after a winning bet. For example if your bank had increased to Ј150, your starting stake would be Ј7.50.
Systematic and controlled staking is essential to successful gambling. The system explained above will make a level stake profit, but if you adopt the progressive staking as suggested you will greatly increase the profits.
With so much mid-week football now, and some of it televised you can bet mid-week as well as weekends. This system should be used at every opportunity.
