BasketBall Bet
« on: May 30, 2012, 09:29:05 AM »

Hello,,

I make a bet today, Miami Heat vsBoston Celtics
Boston/Betsson@7.7/$10
draw/Marathon@17/5
Miami/Marathon@1.31/$60
It seems a OK arb.

But I saw 2 kind of odds in Betsson
Miami Heat vs Boston Celtics including over time  3/4  7/2
Miami Heat vs Boston Celtics Series winner 1/11  20/3
I think I bet odds 7.7=20/3 is at Series winner.

What is the different about Series winner??
Why the odd is so high?

that (at least I do think) happened to all of us when we were novices! :(
Series: for final decisions some leagues and sports like NBA or NHL they play for instance "best of five/seven/whatever matches"

then you made second mistake: 1x2 is ALWAYS on regulation-time only, but usually in Basketball/NBA most bookies include overtime on a 1-2 bet (without draw)

If match hasen't started yet you might wanna either go for risk or clear all of your bets by additional stakes to even out you balances... (for sure a loss!)

Hi MUCHBET

This arb was found from SurebetMonitor.
I think it's valuable, but it may also make mistake.
I don't really understand the detail of this arb.

Result
Boston (0-2) 24 29 22 24 12 111
Miami (2-0)   18 28 35 18 16 115
I wint the Draw!! It's really lucky... 

1. According to your reply, if Miami win, I may lose all the 3 bet.
Do I understand right?
2. The detail of this game is Basketball / NBA / Play-Offs / Semi Finals /
Does this mean the last 4, and is series?
3. What would u do to balance this?

My intuition is this arb was ok, but it would be best if you can provide screenshots of placed bets and/or screenshots from the software.

Cheers,
Mike

Hey! Here is another sample today!
Marathon odd1.55  Moneyline FullTime Oklahoma
Marathon odd16.0  Moneyline FullTime Draw
Betsson   odd4.00  Moneyline FullTime SanAntonio
Where  the odd of SanAntonio over time is 2.8
while the odd of SanAntonio Series winner is 4.0
May someone explain if it is valueable to bet at 4.0?

I took the picture, but I don't know how to post on here.

I don't think it is valuable to bet on series, unless you can find lay on exchanges.
