There's an excellent bit of training that is sent out to anybody that adds their name to the mailing list for the Betting School free weekend tips.
If you go to the http://betting-school.com site you'll see the sign up box for their free tips, which by the way are very profitable.
The training explains the Betting School method for winning in betting and one of the key points is that you have got to beat the market and that doesnt mean betting at Betfair SP unless you have some special unique angle or knowledge.
What it means is getting an early price because you have spotted a horse that has a better chance than the early odds suggest.
I mention this today because I had a bet yesterday that was the perfect example of how this should be done.
Beat the Market
Now I can't take credit for discovering it because the bet came from the Racing Consultants tipping service (http://racingconsultants.co.uk)
But here's how it went down.
At 6.00 pm on Tuesday I got this email…
Good evening all,
Sending this one early as it's a much bigger price than we have it.
4.20 Beverley – 1pt win Bondi Beach Boy 15-2 with Bet365
David & Rory
I straight away logged on to my Bet 365 account and got my tenner on at 15/2.
Come race time there were some withdrawals, but the guys were right about the price being wrong, because even after the rule 4 deduction for the non runners my bet was on at 6/1.
The starting price was 4/1 and the Betfair SP was 5.08.
So a bit of math tells me I beat the Betfair SP by 38%.
Now what the training that I mentioned at the top tells me is that, that is a good bet whether it wins or loses. I have beaten the market and if I do that repeatedly I will be a winner over the long term.
So I was pleased with my bet 🙂 and just a little more pleased when it sprinted home to win :))
If you havent seen the training emails then I recommend you sign up for them, they are free and will improve your betting. http://betting-school.com
By the way I should also mention that the Racing Consultants also had a 9/1 winner on the day and from the 5 bets they gave they made a 15 point profit.
