Taking Odds

January 5, 2012 Leave a comment

When is the best time to place your bets?

Is it when the odds first go up? Is it just before the game kicks off? Obviously I am talking about fixed odds here as I don’t deal with trading.

I tend to take the price on offer at the time of working out my bets. I am aware that the odds do move so they could shorten or lengthen at any time. I could take one price just to find out that it moved to a better place hours or even days later.

So I think I will keep a little eye out on this just to try and work out when it’s best to place the bets. Does any-one know of a site that actually holds data about the price movements?

It may be a while now before I get any new systems in place as I am currently thinking about a few of them. I’m thinking about a goal ranking system, an elo rating system and a poisson system, so I am trying to read up on them all to try and get an understanding of them before I try and crack them. I think a fair few people base their system on one of them three, yet they use different weights for the various items which is obviously the way that I will be going.

Once I have the systems up and running and understand them well enough I may combine them in different ways and see where we go from there.

If any-one has links to sites which helped you understand them better then it will be much appreciated.

Right then. I need all my loyal readers opinions on this matter.

Shall I stick with WordPress.com or should I transfer over to blogger?

I think that being honest the only reason I am on WordPress is that there is an app available that allows me to basically blog from my BlackBerry without having to use my BB browser, which when it comes to posting things on the internet is pretty poor. Another reason I am already thinking about moving is that I am not happy with the themes/Layouts of WordPress.

If Blogger had a BlackBerry app then the choice would be easy indeed. I know I can send emails to a blogger site but there’s not the option to edit the post if I see something wrong and some nights I don’t have time to go on my laptop to edit which is why an app is Ideal.

Now if you guys say that hey Blogger is best then I will give a bit more weight to moving.

And just to add, I am not happy with the way my blog looks yet I don’t like or cannot get it how I would like to on WordPress.

Comments/Opinions please.

First of I would like to wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR. May all of you have a good year in whatever you do.

Now then, wow what a weekend hey? A few surprises here don’t you think.

Out of 15 bets 7 came good. The best has literally got to be the Man Utd V Blackburn game that returned a whopping £450 in profit.

System Alpha

5 Picks returning a loss of £27.25

System Bravo

5 Picks returning a loss of £15.49

System Dand

5 Picks returning a profit of £465.00

So overall it has been a good week so far. And a fitting end to 2011. Just a crying shame I never had £18 on it hey. 🙂

Keep on Marching

Mr Dand you do keep on giving me ideas for new systems don’t you 😉

Well I have rigged another quick system to try and pick out some draws. As the other systems it is very very very simple indeed and as such there is absolutely NO point in even thinking of using the picks to place your bets. For one I only have it set to give me 5 picks for the time being.

The new system is called (insert drum roll here) System Bravo! As with the other two systems it starts with a “Paper” bank of £100 and I don’t expect that to last too long.

So here are my picks for this weekend….

System Alpha

31/12/2011 Manchester United V Blackburn Rovers Bet £18.00 On Manchester United Odds Of 1.13 To return £20.34

31/12/2011 Arsenal V Queens Park Rangers Bet £11.00 On Arsenal Odds Of 1.25 To return £13.75

31/12/2011 Bolton Wanderers V Wolverhampton Wanderers Bet £2.00 On Wolverhampton Wanderers Odds Of 3.25 To return £6.50

31/12/2011 Chelsea V Aston Villa Bet £8.00 On Chelsea Odds Of 1.29 To return £10.32

31/12/2011 Norwich City V Fulham Bet £2.00 On Norwich City Odds Of 2.63 To return £5.26

 System Bravo

31/12/2011 Manchester United V Blackburn Rovers Bet £18.00 On Manchester United Odds Of 1.13 To return £20.34

31/12/2011 Arsenal V Queens Park Rangers Bet £11.00 On Arsenal Odds Of 1.25 To return £13.75

31/12/2011 Chelsea V Aston Villa Bet £8.00 On Draw Odds Of 13 To return £10.32

31/12/2011 Norwich City V Fulham Bet £2.00 On Draw Odds Of 3.25 To return £5.26

 System Dand 🙂

26/12/2011 Manchester United V Blackburn Rovers Bet £18.00 On Blackburn Rovers Odds Of 26 To return £468.00

26/12/2011 Arsenal V Queens Park Rangers Bet £11.00 On Queens Park Rangers Odds Of 13 To return £143.00

26/12/2011 Bolton Wanderers V Wolverhampton Wanderers Bet £2.00 On Bolton Wanderers Odds Of 2.2 To return £4.40

26/12/2011 Chelsea V Aston Villa Bet £8.00 On Aston Villa Odds Of 5 To return £40.00

26/12/2011 Norwich City V Fulham Bet £4.00 On Fulham Odds Of 2.75 To return £11.00

As always if you spot anything wrong or want to question me then please don’t hesitate to ask me, after all I am a “Newbie” so any comments/help is much appreciated.

Phew and Oh My

December 29, 2011 2 comments

Well I have got my laptop back up and running and hopefully I have it sorted and will have no more problems. Anyways on with the results from my picks.

System Alpha

5 picks returning a loss of £3.16.

System Dand

5 picks returning a loss of £55.00

Not a great start to the systems, though I do believe that the staking plan needs tweaking a hell of a lot. On the both systems the total bet was just over half of my paper bankroll and it was thanks to the fact  that I had two winners on System Alpha that I didn’t lose it all.

Damn laptop

December 27, 2011 Leave a comment

Currently my laptop is complete and utterly fu!!ed!!

My anti-virus software happened to miss this one!! I don’t know the correct name for the virus so I will call it the Scotland Yard Virus. It locks your pc/laptop with a message supposedly from Scotland Yard saying that your ip address has been found looking at child porn, websites with abuse to people and sending out bulk spam. Needless to say at first I was like WTF, then you continue reading it says pay £100 in 48 hours to unlock your machine. So then I’m like hang on the police wouldn’t give you notice like that if it was real, re read it again and you notice that the spelling and grammar is completely and utterly poor.

A quick search on my phone reveals it indeed to be a virus that can be a bitch to remove. I spent 8 hours doing 2 virus scans last night (the first one failed as the plug was switched off and the laptop ran out of juice 😦 ) the second fount the viruses and removed them. Re booted the machine but no luck it’s still infected. So tonight I have to go through my registry and hunt it down manually. Oh what fun.

It seems that only two of my picks returned winners on one system. Once I get my laptop sorted then I’ll do a proper update, if I need to do a system restore or wipe then it does put me back a good while, which would teach me to not keep backups.
