Re: Most Profitable Sport to bet on?

I've said once but I could repeat once more: live betting is a barrel of gold.
Lay short and back long.

I've got in my CV hundreds of winning lays below 1.10.
Mainly on tennis (both atp and wta) and NBA.

Re: Most Profitable Sport to bet on?

Looks like it's horse racing.

UK gambler makes almost $2 million off $1 wager

LONDON - A lucky gambler has made 1 million pounds, or about $1.97 million, from a 50 pence ($1) bet, British bookmaker William Hill said Saturday.

The man, who William Hill has not identified, correctly guessed the outcome of eight horse races Friday, beating odds of two-million-to-one.

He walked into a William Hill branch in the north England town of Thirsk and placed wagers on eight horses in eight different contests in a so-called “accumulator bet,” the company said.

His first win came when a horse called “Isn’t That Lucky” won the 2:55 p.m. race at the Sandown track, southwest of London. By the time “A Dream Come True” crossed the finish line at the Wolverhampton racecourse in central England later that evening, the man had won 1 million pounds.

William Hill spokesman Graham Sharpe says the man was oblivious to his win when he came to a different William Hill branch Saturday to place more 50 pence bets. Sharpe said the man had not won any of Saturday’s wagers, losing 2.50 pounds.

“If he does it another 400,000 times we’ll have it all back,” Sharpe said.

William Hill, one of the biggest players in Britain’s gambling industry, operates more than 2,000 betting shops across the country.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

The Hills are known for these publicity stunts. Most of them are bogus! and or exaggerated.

No, its not a lottery. There are 2 players, they have to reach 6 or 7 games for win one set. One mistake will not cost so much so it leaves room for returning. I dont see the luck factor working so much like in football where is possible you defence 90 minutes and score 1 goal from your only strike.

Re: Most Profitable Sport to bet on?

Tennis for sure if you are trading. Lots of twists and turns and I guess the sport where 1.01-1.09 to gets turned over the most.

WTA in particular is a goldmine if you can trade it right. The match between Schynder and Knapp in Antwerp was a perfect example - It went from Schynder at 1.2 at the start of the match, to 1.06 on Knapp when 5-1 in the third set, to 1.1 on Schynder when 15-0 and serving for the match and then straight back to 1.01 when Knapp eventually won.
