Formula 1: Against The Odds

Bookmaker Value

with 2 comments

Just a quick bit of kudos to SportingBet who are currently top-priced about eighteen of the twenty-two drivers in the fixed-odds 2008 World Drivers’ Championship market and are operating to just a 110% book. Compare that to BetFred’s 130% book or PartyBets 135%! There is no point doing all the hard work, picking your idea of the most likely winner, just to lose any value that you might have found into a bookmaker’s margin.

The likes of Expekt and BlueSq who haven’t bothered pricing up the whole field are no better either.

And don’t get me started on the lack of prices from the Spread firms. There are less than twelve days to go until the lights go out at Melbourne and so far not a hint of a market. A poor show, particularly from the usual market leaders SportingIndex.
