Beat The Bookie eBook
Like all good systems, there are a set of rules for this experiment - DO NOT BREAK THEM!
No greater than 0.5 on a bet
The bookies rarely get it wrong. If you see them offering 1/2, consider that your limit. 4/7 is attractive, but it is 4/7 for a reason.
No betting on an away team
There are too many variables involved in betting on an away team - no matter what the odds. Avoid!
England = Premiership only
Stick to what you know. If you know that Arsenal are without Henry and Reyes, don't back them! Do you fully understand the lower leagues?
England = FA Cup
Statistics in recent years suggest that upsets rarely happen - particularly when a Premiership team is drawn against any team below
the mid-point in the Coca-Cola Championship league. Also, in the last 10 years the cup has been won by either Arsenal, Manchester United,
Liverpool or Chelsea. You have to go back to 1991 to find a year in which none of these teams reached the final!
Scotland = Premiership only
The same principle applies - stick to what you know. Celtic at home to almost anyone is worth backing!
Scotland = Scottish Cup
Only once in the last 10 years has the cup been won by a team other than Celtic or Rangers.
Germany = Bundesliga only
The same principle applies - stick to what you know. Bayern Munich at home to almost anyone is worth backing!
Spain = La Liga only
The same principle applies - stick to what you know. Barcelona at home to almost anyone is worth backing!
Italy = Serie A only
The same principle applies - stick to what you know. Juventus at home to almost anyone is worth backing!
Northern Ireland = Premier League only
Linfield, Glentoran or Portadown at home against anyone (except each other).
Avoid the last round of games in the group stage - particularly those teams that have already qualified!
