So, I’ve been thinking about this for a few days and (the really really shitty pun aside), do in-play bets help slow the rate at which you lose bookie accounts?
Hear me out: Value is generated in odds vs chance right? Getting a 3/1 horse at 15/1 will over time, generate profit (this is the key to value betting) however, in-plays are generally bad ‘value’ for people who bet on them. The lines on them almost always drift out relatively quickly, after placing the bet therefore making them ‘bad value’ for us and great value for the bookies.
Is this why i still have all my accounts? (bar Betfair who frankly, I used for an American horse system I was testing for myself, which proved too good only to have them stake restrict me to shit)
Who knows! It can’t hurt though!
(It also helps that I’m shit and lose all my money, I’m sure)
