  • Betfair Multi Deal
    Betfair have a new deal on their multi’s. If you make a five way multi bet before the 25th of Jan, then if you only get 4 of the multi’s correct, then betfair will refund your stake.

  • Triple J hottest 100 2009 predictions
    It’s coming around to Australia Day once again which is one of my favourite days of the year! Why?

    Since going live on the 14/09/09, the soccer asian handicap model has basically broken even on 2677 bets. Considering the large profits made on the h2h betting, this is surprising, although it must be noted that asian handicapping is somewhat harder than simply betting on the team to win on the head. This is largely due to potential scoring ability of both teams. More...
