Betting prediction for Inter vs Udinese

Both sides have not done well this season so it is little surprise that Inter are coming into this clash in 11th spot while Udinese is in 9th spot in Serie A. Last season when they met Inter has been victorious in their meetings when you consider that they managed a draw at home and away win, while Udinese managed to win 1-0 at home in the Italian Cup.

Inter player’s know they need to continue their good record against Udinese and register a win on Sunday. A win would also put them closer to a place to Europe especially when you consider they have six points less then Napoli who are in third spot.

Inter decided to part ways with coach Mazzari and bring back Mancini, who won the Scudetto two times under his guidance in the past. But in their last two rounds they managed a draw away against their city rivals Milan and a defeat at Olimpico by Roma. They did beat Dnipro at home in the Europa League however which was enough to be certain of top spot in their group.

For this clash they will be without defender Jonathan and midfielder Hernanes who are out injured.

Meanwhile for Inter Milan, after a good start to the season they fell into a bad patch and they will be heading into this match without a win in their last five games managing three defeats and two draws. They are currently ninth in the standings and in the last five matches they conceded as many as 11 goals. That means we could see coach Stramaccioni make changes especially in defence for this match.

They did however confirmed their place in the next round of the Italian Cup when they beat Cesena 4-2 at home, in a match which needed extra time. They did rested a number of their first team players on the bench giving priority to Serie A, but for this match we could see them returning to the starting eleven for sure.

They will not have the services of defender Gabriel Silva and striker Muriel who are out injured while defender Domizzi is suspended for this clash.

Expect Inter Milan to get the win and clear the 1 ball Asian Handicap in this match.

How To Bet: Compound Staking – Will Einstein help you compound the problem?

In last week’s Weekend Wager column I touched on the subject of compound interest or ‘compounding’, which is often sold as the magic formula to getting rich quick, especially when betting.

The idea behind compounding is to constantly re-invest your profits back into your original bank. Thus your average stake size will increase as will your profit (that’s the theory anyway).

It’s often backed up by quotes from Albert Einstein where he declares compound interest as “the greatest mathematical discovery of all time” or the “8th Wonder of The World”. Whether or not he actually said these things is up for debate but it’s worth asking the question, does compounding work?

Well it depends on how you utilise it as it can be dangerous especially if you are dazzled by the £ signs and headline profit figures. The best thing to do is to check out the full impact, both in terms of profit and loss.

Take for example one service, which recommends a certain method of compounding (or re-investment as they call it). Via their banking advice, £1000 invested back in December 08 would now be £7718, effectively 671% growth.

The only problem with this is that the size of the bank is too small and they would have actually lost 95.9% of it during one losing run! Imagine you had a £10,000 starting figure, would you have the balls to continue if it went as low as £410!?!

In some circumstances, following such a staking plan will only compound your problems.

Less Boom But Less Bust!

What this service needs to do is effectively double the advised bank, so you are staking less on each selection. Of course you get less boom but also less chance of going bust (Gordon Brown would be proud!)

If taking this approach and compounding, the initial £1000 will still have grown into £3231.47 over the same period. 223% growth – not something to be sniffed at!

That one losing run I mentioned before would have only accounted for 47.95% of your bank, which is a bit more manageable.

I don’t know about you but I would be very happy with 223% long-term growth and a worst case scenario of losing 50% of my bank during a bad spell.

Pick up SBC Issue number 51, due out in the next couple of days for the full rundown on this approach, including details on how you could have made this 223% growth.

How We Can Help Further

I have kept the above example purposefully brief but getting your staking right is incredibly important, especially if compounding.

This is why we devote some much attention to staking in our Secret Betting Club newsletters. We rank and review close to 40 top performing tipsters including suggestions on the optimum bank size to use. Often tipsters themselves get it wrong or ignore staking completely, always double check and if in doubt, we’re here to help.

Staking Plans and Betting Banks – What is backing

Let’s say for example you decide on a betting bank of £500. Dividing that by 100 will mean one point is £5. So let’s say you carefully select three horses that you believe have a good chance of winning, you would place £5 on each one.

Example 1.
1st horse you back at 3/1 for £5, the horse loses = -£5
2nd horse you back at 2/1 for £5, the horse wins = +£10
3rd horse you back at 6/4 for £5, the horse wins = +£7.50
Your total stake outlay would be £15 for the 3 bets
Which as the above example shows you would have returned a profit of £12.50

Example 2.
1st horse you back at 5/4, for £5, the horse wins = +£6.23
2nd horse you back at 13/8, for £5, the horse loses =-£5
3rd horse you back at 4/1, for £5, the horse loses =-£5
Your total stake outlay would be £15 for the 3 bets
Which as the above example shows you would have made a loss of £8.77

Example 3.
1st horse you back at 11/8, for £5, the horse loses =-£5
2nd horse you back at 7/4, for £5, the horse loses =-£5
3rd horse you back at 9/2, for £5, the horse loses =-£5
Your total stake outlay would be £15 for the 3 bets
Which as the above example shows you would have made a loss of £15.00

Example 4.
1st horse you back at 11/8, for £5, the horse wins =+£6.88
2nd horse you back at 5/1, for £5, the horse wins =+£25
3rd horse you back at 9/2, for £5, the horse wins =+£22.50
Your total stake outlay would be £15 for the 3 bets

Which as the above example shows you would have returned a profit of £54.38

So over a period of four days betting using a good system your profit would be £43.11. Not bad at all, you would have almost doubled your money. As you can see from the above four examples using a good staking plan along with a disciplined attitude will keep any losses acceptable and manageable, and your betting bank will grow steadily over time.

This is only one example of a simple staking plan using £5 stakes, there are quite a few different variations, but the fundamental principles are the same. Use a betting bank divide it up by 100 or 50 points, stick to your staking plan and you will profit long-term from racing – as long as you have chosen the right selections of course.

An Introduction To In Play Betting

Take a look at the likes of Betfair or Bet 365’s websites and you’ll find endless in play markets offered across a wide array of sports, such as football, rugby, golf and the like. Basically, you can bet in play on virtually any sports where there are televised pictures to accompany the fluctuating betting odds. In Play betting is the term given to bets placed while an event is live and on-going.

In play betting offers a distinct advantage to gamblers who are both watching the event and are connected to the internet with a high speed broadband link, as they can often take advantage of a pivotal moment occurring within a game. It is for this reason that both the online exchanges and bookmakers insist on a time delay between the bet being struck and accepted in their markets. Typically there is an eight second countdown to you placing a bet and it being accepted by the layer.

Bookmakers will temporarily suspend a market if there is an occurrence that is likely to cause a substantial change in the odds. In football, that could include if a team are awarded a penalty, a goal or a red card. The market will then re-form with new prices after the incident, leading to the market suspension, has been resolved.

One clear advantage of in-play betting is that if you miss a pre-match price you were desperate to back, or can’t get your full stake placed, your patience will often be rewarded in play. If luck runs with you and if you can afford to wait say 20-30 minutes before you bet on the side you fancy the odds will drift to a more palatable price (as long as the game remains 0-0, of course). This kind of strategy (cross your fingers and hope to exploit a drift) is also a decent alternative to taking a poor value handicap or Asian handicap bet where the start offered or the price does not represent value.

At kick-off prices are generally efficient, but as the game progresses the odds can take a bit of an adhoc cast especially where games are poised and bookies’ traders are reluctant to take a strong line that flies in the face of the pre-match prices.

How to bet live on NHL at Pinnacle Sports

NHL betting is among our most popular markets, unsurprising given its high intensity and level of skill. With this in mind we have expanded our coverage to include live NHL betting so bettors can keep betting even when the puck and fists start flying. Here are the details and some basic live strategies.
NHL Live betting: The details

For every NHL game, once the action is live, bettors can place the following bets during intermissions:

For all 1st and 2nd period intermissions:

  • One handicap line
  • One money line
  • One total

We will not offer live odds after the third period in tied games, and there is no offering between OT (Over Time) and shootout.

For selected high profile games, especially so during the playoffs, we may also offer up to three alternate handicaps and totals, giving you even greater options in-play.

As with all of the odds offered at Pinnacle Sports the margins are extremely competitive at 4%, which in American odds is 16 cent, or -108/-108. You will do well to find value like this anywhere else.

The limits are also what you have come to expect from Pinnacle Sports and will generally be as follows, though they vary by game, and may increase during the Playoffs:

  • Handicap $1,500 or equivalent in your currency
  • Money Line $3,000
  • Total $1,500

NHL Live betting strategy

Betting on an NHL game as it progresses can simply add an extra interest to watching the action unfold. Ice hockey is fast, furious and adrenalin packed, so what better way to match that excitement than by trying to interpret the ebb-and-flow of the game with a live bet.

Your basis for making a pre-game bet – such as tactics, formation & form – can quickly unravel once a game begins to unfold, so live betting enables you to wait to confirm your pre-game ideas about how things will pan out.

As well as providing an alternative to pre-game betting, Live NHL betting can also provide a compliment. Should you bet pre-game on the Leafs to win in regular time against the Kings, and they take a 2-0 lead in the first period, you can hedge this bet using updated intermission odds by taking the expanded price on the Kings. This kind of basic hedging can work across handicaps, money lines and totals.

Understanding team mentality is vital for live NHL betting. For instance a team trailing by one goal towards the end of the game may pull their goalie and replace him with an additional attacker. However, this often leads to the winning team scoring again, rather than an equalising goal, which should interest bettors betting on games with -1.5 handicaps during the second intermission of close matches.

For more expert bettors Live NHL odds can enable correlated betting based on perceived relationships between the three main markets offered, as well as the opportunities for Arbitrage, which of course is welcomed at Pinnacle Sports (read here) unlike our competitors.

Hopefully you have read enough to encourage you to bet the next NHL action live. Simply look for the Intermission folder within the main NHL section of the Betting Menu on game nights, put your money down and enjoy the excitement of betting as the game unfolds live.

Understanding the Odds – Spreads


Along with a moneyline, the idea of the spread is central to not only tennis betting, but sports betting in general. Often, the matchup between two players, or teams, is so lopsided that no one would be interested in betting on it. That’s where the spread comes in to make things more interesting. The spread adjusts the total score to make the competition more balanced. The following scenario will make the concept very clear. Let’s stick with our matchup of Federer vs. Verdasco from the previous article. Instead of betting on the match winner, this wager is on the total number of games each player wins in the match. The odds might read like the following –

Total Games Won – Federer -6.5 -110 vs. Verdasco +6.5 -110

As you can see, the moneyline is now even on this wager. In both cases, a wager of $110 would bring back a $100 win if the right player is chosen. The payout is even because the spread has balanced out the competition between the two players. After the match is finished, we see the following result –

Totals Games Won – Federer 18 vs. Verdasco 12

In this fictitious match, Federer won all three sets by a line score of 6-4, 6-4, 6-4. So which side of the total games won wager would be a winner? Despite losing the match in straight sets, a bet on Verdasco would have been the winner in this case. The spread of +6.5 games for Verdasco gets added to his total of 12 games won to give him 18.5. That is a half-game ahead of Federer in this case, and so a bet on Verdasco would be paid out.

It’s easy to see how the spread can make betting more interesting. Hardly anyone would bet on Verdasco to win more games than Federer without the presence of a spread. However, when adding 6.5 games to his total, the match gets far more competitive. Understanding the influence of the spread is a vital component of making smart live tennis wagers.

Everton with great odds to finish top-six of the Premier League this season

Everton picked up an impressive win on Monday night against newly-promoted Queens Park Rangers, and now the Toffees are hoping to climb up the Premier League table. Their European commitments have been put to bed for almost two months, which means Roberto Martinez’s side can focus solely on their domestic duties.

The Merseyside club are currently 10th in the Premier League, but a win in their next game could see them just one place outside of the top-six with plenty of games to push for a high finish. With the likes of Southampton and Liverpool currently floundering in the league, Everton have a real chance to make a top-six spot their own by the time the New Year comes around.

Bet 365 are giving odds of 9/4 for the Toffees to finish in a top-six spot as they did last season, which will see them in a Europa League place the following campaign. They did somewhat struggle to combine the two competitions earlier this season, but their form is returning and Martinez will be hoping to replicate last season’s heroics.

Betting Preview: Manchester United v Liverpool

Louis van Gaal will be looking for fellow Dutchman Robin van Persie to continue his return to form as the Manchester United manager experiences a United-Liverpool clash in the Premier League for the first time.

Few games arouse United fans’ passion more than the encounter with their bitter Merseyside rivals and van Persie – and United – approach it in a great frame of mind.

Van Persie scored both goals in United’s 2-1 win at Southampton, where they were fortunate to come away with three points.

A sure sign of a good side is to play poorly and still win, though, especially on the same weekend that leaders Chelsea surrendered their unbeaten Premier League run with a 2-1 defeat at Newcastle.

Van Gaal was not afraid to splash the cash over the summer as he tried to make his mark following the disappointing tenure of David Moyes at Old Trafford.

Van Persie’s goals against Southampton were evidence that perhaps Van Gaal already has the striker to return United to the top of the table and does not need a new one in the January transfer window.

Liverpool, in contrast, are still in the doldrums as manager Brendan Rodgers struggles to get to grips with the thorny issue of what to do with veteran midfielder Steven Gerrard.

Rodgers has so far been unable to inspire a repeat of last season’s sensational but ultimately fruitless challenge for the Premier League title.

Chief amongst his problems has been a goalscorer to replace Luis Suarez, but the inconsistent form of Gerrard – and his future – have also been troublesome.

The trip back along the East Lancashire Road would be all the sweeter then if talisman Gerrard popped up to burst Van Gaal and Van Persie’s bubble.

Enhanced price therefore maximum stake of £25 per user.

How to use properly our betting bank

“Why you should never bet without one.”

Betting banks are absolutely essential for anyone who wants to take punting seriously. If you want to profit from racing long-term you must put some money aside and use this money solely for the purpose of betting. This money must be totally separate from all your other finances that you need to live day to day. This will remove emotion from the decision making process when you are betting; how you might ask?

Think about it for a minute. Would you put the week’s shopping money down on a horse? No of course you wouldn’t, but unfortunately some people do. These are generally punters with no method, no plan and definitely no betting bank.

Understanding how to recognise your emotions, and what part they play in the decision process is the key to your success or failure in betting, or trading of any sort. If you know that the money you use to bet is not linked to your everyday expenses then you will be able to relax more, and be positive about your decisions when placing bets.

How much money you can afford to put in a betting bank will of course depend on your own individual circumstances. Then you need to decide how much money you will use for each bet this is called a “Staking Plan” or point betting. In other words each bet will be one or two points depending on how strongly you feel your selections chances are.

You should divide your bank into 50 – 100 points in my opinion. This will allow for any losing runs, and will overcome the risk of an emotional response to a series of any unusually positive or negative results. In the next chapter I will explain how it works. But first you must understand the overall dynamics of smart money management, and always…
Start off small, and bet with money you own, not money transferred from your credit card.

The best way to start backing or laying horses is with a small betting bank, as your experience and confidence grows so will the profits, which will be mainly made up of money you have won and not deposited from your bank account or credit card.

The advantages of this approach are…

  • Betting with winnings will allow you to relax more. Using money you have won is far less emotional than betting with money deposited from your bank account.
  • Using a small betting bank has the distinct advantage that if at first you aren’t getting it right the stakes are very manageable. Losses are far easier to deal with emotionally when betting with smaller amounts.
  • Be patient and you will succeed. At first try to view the whole method as having no money attached to it. This will allow you to solely concentrate on the selection process, which ultimately will make you far more money once you are getting it right.
  • Don’t try to run before you can walk. In order for anything to become a reality you must believe that it is attainable, your mantra should be…

“Learn to BELIEVE and YOU will SUCCEED.”

There is no such thing as LUCK in my opinion; it’s a case of…
