    So how do you think StarLizard made it's money, yesterday?

    Clearly not a thread we can speculate on before kick off.

    I think I have my head round the logic, Tony et al are looking for a tiny variations in the odds that they can exploit.
    It's not like they would have 'gone large' on Sunderland, as us mug punters do.

    But looking at the results I'm not sure I understand enough to know where the money was.

    17:30 Chelsea 5 - 1 Newcastle Stamford Bridge
    15:00 Bournemouth 1 - 3 Stoke Vitality Stadium
    15:00 Crystal Palace 1 - 2 Watford Selhurst Park
    15:00 Everton 0 - 1 West Brom Goodison Park
    15:00 Norwich 2 - 2 West Ham Carrow Road
    15:00 Swansea 0 - 1 Southampton Liberty Stadium
    12:45 Sunderland 2 - 1 Man Utd Stadium of Light

      If the name of the game is Big Bets On Sure Fire Winners, Aiming To Get A Positive Return And A Contribution To Long-Term Growth In Earnings, then it's obvious that the safe bet was on Chelsea v Newcastle United - especially in the Asian Handicap market.

      Taking the Utd game as an example.

      Would they be betting on Utd to win as soon as Sunderland scored, then Sunderland to win as soon as Utd equalised?
      Assuming the result generates a profit.

      I thought it is all done on Asian handicaps ? So nothing what you write bothers them

      So what is Asian Handicap?
      Is that just the Far East version of Ladbrokes with equally shitty adverts, or do they have a different approach to odds and 'chalking up' a game.

      Asian handicap betting starts with an imaginary proposition.

      Let's give Chelsea a (say) two goal start on Newcastle United. This makes the odds very different from what a high street bookmaker will offer and punters have the opportunity to make money on Newcastle "beating" Chelsea. In this particular case, any fule can see that a two goal start isn't enough, and the money goes to folk who stick with Chelsea.

      That's because you're not a math's genius who employs a couple of hundred highly skilled employees to develop a super complicated algorithm.

      This. It's a variation on what goes on in the financial markets. Hugely complex statistical models built by (typically) Oxford/Cambridge/Harvard-type maths geeks, aimed at pointing out where they think the bookies have got it slightly wrong, then taking high value punts on short-odds positions.

      Stoke at 10/3 were an absolutely outrageous price. I know they hadn't scored for a while but Bournemouth are awful at the back.
      Well the thirty minutes are almost up Swindon fans but your not there yet. in it goes (yyyyyyeeeessssssss) ooohhh its gone in, Brighton in added on time have snatched a goal through Virgo!!! Incredible!! Once again there is late, late, late drama in the playoffs!!
