Few bets for a one match
« on: March 12, 2016, 06:49:16 PM »

Hi, guys. I have a question, maybe just a bit weird but I am confused.
Can I place for example two value bets for a one match like:

1 half UNDER 0.5
AH1 -1.5

Will these bets save their value considering that it is crossing? I mean when I place handicap -1.5 I want to see a goal as soon as possible, but I have 1 half under 0.5 bet at the same time. Hope you understand me

No, some value or all of it will be lost.
Take a more radical example, team A lead at ht and team B wins at ft.  Not mutually exclusive, but very unlikely.

In your example, if both bets are with the same firm then the ht/ft x-1 is likely to be value (not always). Edit: this sort of solves your problem.

Some people, when faced with this choice, pick the highest value bet (the bet that gives the highest advantage) and move on.

The choice itself is tricky because you need to watch your stake since it is the same match.


Edit 2: hey m8,  I take back what I said in this post, disregard it. Someone more experienced can hopefully answer better. I'm curious as well.

Thanks for your answer. I think the same thats why I asked.

But what if we have placed for example two value bets:

AH1 -0.5
O/U UNDER 2,5
Will we safe the value of both selections?

And how do bookies work in this case? They have many markets and they dont have equal amounts of bets on two sides very often, so they left these bets to be played...

Okey )
The question is hard to answer. I would like to listen someone else as well. I think this thread should be interesting for any pro.

Value will not be lost, there is no such thing. If both of them have value independently they will still have the same expected value no matter what combination of bets you make.
What changes when you make multiple value bets on the same match is your exposure, and in your example it is reduced. I would consider this an advantage and would pick the second value bet even if it would have a very slight positive %
