Hello

I have seen in oddsportal that there is a tool called blocked odds, an it shows matches where a lot of bookies have close.

Why is this tool useful, what can you do with it?? find fixed matches??

This can be good indicator, but please dont care about something like fixed matches. There are only few ways how to make money from betting. One of them is value betting

Once again the key is find better odds than pinnacle offers and you dont need to look at information if ronaldo will play or not, or if there will be storm or not. You even dont need to care about stats. If you find better odds you got the value and you will be sucesfull in long run.. See CaraPan last posts to know that he is doing amazing profits..

1. open soft bookmaker site
2. open pinnaclesports site
3. find higher odd in soft bookmaker
4. take profits

Every night come back here and follow some guys who have positive karma and sometimes share how successful you are in values.
Good luck

So we are coming back to the eternal question, when to cover a bet and when to let it run. I would personally take option A to avoid the long path of market experience and to be sure that even a small profit stays in the pocket.

Most of the times that would be the wrong thing to do, but indeed will help you sleep well at night and avoid the liquid performance of value betting.
BTW, most of the arbers of the old guard switched to value betting as far as I know and there are reasons for that.

Are they talking about pre-match blocks or during a given match?

I am not sure to whom this question is, but in my article above I was strictly referring to pre-match blocks.

Who is the first to block odds? Offline bookmakers on on line? I am trying to find a pattern but there isn't any. It seems that every bookmaker has som sources of information and these are not shares with other bookmakers. When a bookmaker blocks the odds in one game, then other bookmakers follow. Even though their lines are not competitive and not appearing in the alert services.

Most of the bookmakers buy odds from odds providers. After that they adjust based on total stake played at each line. But odds are blocked at the same time for all bookies who use the same provider. Very often many providers at same time block the same line resulting in 2 bookies which are not using the same provider to block odds at the same time for a particular match. Most of the time it happens when something specific takes place in the match. Or if the odds provider realizes its opinion for this match is not correct.

But what we do when bookmaker block markets during the match ?? Many times they deduct half-time markets or you just can't bet on a game in general (neither in handicap nor on over/under), odds are missing. Does they really know something or  just following the general trend which may be some big bets on the exchange or some rumors  before the start? Is there a way to recognize when there is value and when they just follow others because they are afraid of sure bets?

In 365 it is a daily phenomenon, but recently and especially after Covid-19 big bookmakers (like Pinnacle, Singbet etc) open and close odds for matches in-play and finally block odds at all. Usually big drops leads to this blocks.  I have many examples in my mind . Αnd the question is if anyone  can  take advantage of this ''blocks'' in soft bookmakers (mostly european ) or on shops ?

If you read in the forum you ll see that even Pinnacle (winners welcome joke) and Singbet found their match and they are no longer able to stop smart betting, unless they void/confiscate funds.
In your question. Do you really have enough time to place these in-play bets? I mean, you first need to understand what is going on and why the bookmaker blocked the odds, and then decide where/how to bet. I believe it is not possible to do it online because many bookmakers react when Pinnacle blocks odds. But maybe you can place these bets in shops. But how would you decide that fast why the game is blocked?

There are many reasons that  Pinnacle have difficulties with smart betting in years of Covid-19 , but was a .discussion for a another topic . Now to your question ,my small experience teachs me that if Pinnacle block odds (in-play) this happens for 2-3 reasons (firstly because he accepted very big bets or secondly the trader has made a wrong estimate , or big dropping odds on other bookmakers and don't want sure bettors).This happens mainly in small markets like club friendlies ,youth championships , minor leagues etc , rarely will you see something like this happen in big markets. Now I do not know exactly the percent of wins /losses for this (blocked) bets .I have examples with 0-0 half time and 4-0 full time and other that score was 1-0 on 78' minute and over 2,5 offered 1,8 -1,90  and match finished 1-0 .Now if you find bookmaker / shop that offer the specific match / market , after the first reaction (Pinnacle block) usually markets return with lower odds and you can find something if goals scored in the end of the match or after a big time gap without goal in match . Also you can try asian goals or handicaps .In my opinion time is the less problem .The biggest problem  in this matches are  liquidity ;) . Of course there will be and other techniques that ''big sharks'' :D will use if they find these informations . I will really be interested in the opinion of every smart player about all this .
