Olimp3kSignUp jan19What is Value Betting? In sports betting, from time to time you hear experience punters refer to value, for example: “I think Southampton is value this weekend against a Liverpool team coming from the Super Cup Final in Istanbul” But what are they referring to exactly? Value betting is the ability to identify an edge against a bookmaker.

Olimp3kSignUp jan19The World Cup has only recently come and gone but it’s time to shake it off and get stuck into the real deal which is test cricket. And not only any old red ball event either – it’s the prestigious Ashes! Let’s take a close look at who I feel could fire and who could crash and burn…

Olimp3kSignUp jan19Well I had a sneaky feeling that it was a weekend to keep the stakes a bit smaller than usual and unfortunately, I was right to think in that way. The Griquas arrived on the half time call in their clash but after that we came up with nothing. The Bulls were an absolute no-show whilst Western Province made a mockery of my most confident call of the weekend… But let’s put last week behind as and look ahead shall we.

SpringboksEmblemIn the first round of the Rugby Championships the Aussies showed why so little respect is given to them as possible World Cup contenders as they were outplayed by a second strong Springbok side. The Argentines were left ruing a few missed opportunities as they pushed the All Blacks all the way and came within a few meters of beating the visiting New Zealanders in Buenos Aires. But let’s have a look at this coming weekend’s action..

AllBlacks80They say that in World Cup year no one remembers who won the Rugby Championship. Whilst that might very well be true it won’t stop us from using another rugby tournament to try and build our betting balance prior to the big event in Japan.

Olimp3kSignUp jan19What an opening weekend of Currie Cup it was for us! All the tipped bets came in and in all honestly they arrived with a bit of room to spare. The tactic of backing the two smaller unions in the first few rounds has to take a break this week as they square off against each other and as such I see much less clear early value than last week this time. Whilst more tentative I will however still have a punt or two and here’s where (and why) I’m going with my funds this weekend.

Olimp3kSignUp jan19It’s time for the final major of the year. When a tournament can merely be referred to as The Open then you know that its pretty much the grand daddy of the golfing world. The big one, the real deal. The only major championship to be hosted outside the United States (which makes it special in its own right – and also much more watchable in terms of viewing times for South Africans) and it’s also the oldest of the four.

Olimp3kSignUp jan19The Boks are pulling tight in camp working on tactics but locally the Currie Cup gets underway and as a punter it’s yet another opportunity to build the bankroll… Let’s get stuck in to Week 1 of the Currie Cup.

WestProvThe Crusaders must surely still be nursing hangovers from their Super Rugby success yet in South Africa the Sharks, Bulls, Lions and Stormers (Wester Province) are already back to domestic duty. (Clearly the organisers had little faith in a South African team staying on too far past the regular Super Rugby season given the “break” afforded to them!).

CWC Austrlia150The semis are approaching and whilst the tournament can’t end fast enough for Protea fans the race for playoff spots is still very much on for a number of teams. After this weekend we will be a lot closer to having an idea who could possibly be lifting the trophy. Here are the two big games to look forward to over the weekend.
