Poll straw – Trump trumped

Poll straw – Trump trumped

An interesting set of results came in from the US caucuses last night. But it highlighted again that people don’t tell the truth to pollsters. I think I can explain. Everybody hates an outsider Nobody likes to be an outsider, apart from me it seems. But being an outsider is where some of the best […]

Sorry for the provocative headline, but I’m not able to trade today. It will be the first time in over a decade that I will miss the highlight of January. So I hope it’s rubbish 😉 If you are trading however, good quality racing will great you today at Cheltenham, Doncaster and Fairyhouse; it should […]

Been nosing at the Derby vs. Man Utd FA Cup this evening with interest. Man United are about evens for the match and playing away. This struck a chord with me. First off, everybody knows how bad Man Utd have been recently. Their last 11 home games at half time have been 0-0,0-0,0-0,0-0,0-0,0-0,0-1,0-0,0-0,0-0,0-0. OK they are […]

Can Leicester qualify for the champions league?

Did you know, Leicester have been here before? Read on…. Analytics The thing I love about the modern football analytics movement is there are increasing amounts of, free, data out there that will help you make good, sensible, rational decisions. Far more than I could have ever imagined. It’s a long way from when I […]

Billy no mates

Nobody has invited us around this Christmas, so yet again today, our family is hosting everybody for lunch, but I wont be there. I guess somebody needs to earn the money to pay for it 😉 I’ll be locked in my study and making the odd appearance to say hello. New years day is a busy […]

How to win £45m in a few minutes

How to win £45m in a few minutes

Four years ago today we were treated to a day of spectacular proportions.  On this this day at the Christmas hurdle at Leopardstown, something went very, very wrong. Voler La Vedette ran home to take that race, but for most of the race £21m was available to back at good odds. Nobody it seemed was able […]

Tingle Creek meeting

Tingle Creek meeting

For some reason, I know it’s named after a horse, the Tingle Creek meeting at Sandown sounds Christmassy to me, but for sure is an early highpoint in December . The meeting is joined by Aintree and the Welsh Grand National trial on Saturday to make a decent card. It should make up for the […]

Hennessy Gold Cup – One of my favourite races

Hennessy Gold Cup – One of my favourite races

I have fond memories of the Hennessy Gold Cup. I’ve traditionally done well at this race and its the race I traded live at the IX Investor show for Betfair in 2006. I know I’ve posted this summary, or something similar, before. But it’s definitely one of the highlights of my trading career so far so it’s […]

I think I’ve spotted a trend!

I think I’ve spotted a trend!

I must admit, the Melbourne Cup Carnival has got off to a slow start for me this year. So I thought I’d better check on whether I was underperforming, or whether there was something else going on. Something else in going on. I took the first two days of the Carnival from my records and […]

New version of Bet Angel – 1.42

I was searching the Blog this evening to point somebody to the additions we made in the most recent version of Bet Angel and realised I hadn’t posted it. It was posted on the forum, but not here. So it seemed logical to post it here as well! Download the latest version of Bet Angel […]

Today could be your independence day

Today could be your independence day

Happy 4th of July to our American users. Hold on we don’t have any (yet)! But the independence I am talking about takes a slightly different slant anyhow. When we first designed Bet Angel it was a very simple one click interface. As time evolved we branched the product out to include more and more […]

Customising Bet Angel’s Search Presets

You can customise the way Bet Angel searches for markets. We have had some requests for a way to fast add Each Way markets in Horse Racing. Betfair only recently added each way markets to UK Horse racing, not to be confused with the standard Place markets. At the moment liquidity is poor but hopefully they […]

FA Cup third round shocks

FA Cup third round shocks

Ah, the romance of the FA Cup The romance bit comes from a non league team coming up against a major club and beating them. But the evidence for regular giant killings is getting a little thin on the ground. But the third round and confidence can make a huge difference. Small teams and progression […]

Are you getting a duff price?

Had an interesting conversation with somebody recently about how they can’t use the exchange any longer because the prices on the sports book were much better. Here is why he realised he had made a mistake: – Industry pricing for football The first thing to note is that industry prices on football are much tighter […]
