How to use the movement of betting odds

Using the offered by the bookmakers odds and especially odds movements is a betting skill which if you have you can safely say you are a completed punter. We all know that the movement of the odds indicates what kind of bets are made around the world for one particular match. When we look at the history of the betting odds we can see can we make a bet on the highest possible odds and whether there are chances in the future to get even better odds for our bet?

That’s why a constant review of the betting odds seems mandatory for those who want to gain profit from sports betting.

One of the sites that offer such possibility is Betexplorer. In this site and in its section for Odds movement you can see the matches with the greatest movement in the odds. For the comfort of all who use the site is presented a percentage of the difference between the initial and current odds. By being able to see this you can easily find out which odds are going higher and which are going in the opposite direction.

Apart from this in this section you would see the bookmaker that gives the highest odds for the match, thus you can very quickly make the needed bet.

Here is important to make a clarification. When considering the drop of coefficients is good to see carefully what kind of odds are falling.

When we have a heavy favorite in a match, then even a minimal change in its odds will have a great impact over the odds of the underdog. So if we have a match in which the favorite had odds of 1.11 and 6.75 were the odds for the underdog when the odds moves and the favorite rate becomes 1.12, then the underdog’s odds would be around 6.2. In this case we have a serious drop, but does it matter at all?

That’s why I prefer to look only the movement in the coefficients of the favorites in a match. They are the truest indicator of what is happening with the coefficients and their relationship between the initial odds and the one who bookmakers offer at the moment.
