For example, "what is the chance of winning the O'Sullivan World Snooker Championship"

It is very difficult to answer precisely, as opposed to the question "what is the chance to win at roulette betting on number 23?" We know from the beginning that this is 1/37.

Being able to accurately assess a chance is something very difficult, cultivated through each player's experience and time.

The player needs to gain a remarkable knowledge of the sport and the way the books define the odds in this sport.

Of course, books may be wrong, something the player should be able to take advantage of at any time.

The ability of a player to "smell" the error of the book does not have many, but this is one of the elements that distinguish the professional from the amateur player.

Do not expect to find blatant mistakes, as books are usually correct. Little errors in yields existed, exist and will continue to exist.

How the player will acquire knowledge on the path as we said earlier may not be important, as the "right" bet is a subjective concept and is something he attributes when used by someone.

A player can then study the championship statistics and bets based on them. Others can form teams and even racing news to decide what to bet.

Someone else can rely on the intuition of the struggle. In any case, each player is asked to find a way to match and, of course, adapt to him. But everyone must (theoretically) have a common point: the search for value.

Many tipsters follow the method of betting on the favorites, with the logic of betting on a better team, the team can play at home, where they are obviously closer to winning, ignoring the performance they offer to the favorites, or ultimately without looking Value in it.

A more correct question they will have to do is: "Is it worth playing Liverpool at 1.25 with Wolves?"

In other words, you should consider whether the Liverpool winning performance is greater than the performance on which they themselves will appreciate the same opportunity.

Someone who uses a basic value is in different to whether or not he will bet on the favorite or underdog. Assuming, in the same example as before, that someone believes Liverpool has a 70% chance of winning the match, and Wolves only 15%, he has to wager for the Wolves, regardless of whether Liverpool is obviously closer to the win.

The winnings must be in line with the player's previous estimate. There are 1.43 and 6.67 in the double (they result if we divide 100 to 70 and 15 respectively). Any higher performance at double 8.00, for example, is worthwhile, which the player should attempt to exploit.

Since odds are simply probable, value betting is the only way to win the big fight with the bookmaker.

But is this the right way to play?

Here is a timeless "confrontation" between those looking for value and those who simply bet on the favorites.

In fact, the truth is that if one can not understand and manage the odds is lost by hand.
