    bookie versus bookie strategy

    Hi,for the last two months I've been testing this strategy which basically means finding a bookmaker which is specialized in a certain league or a spor t and then using their odds aginst other bookmakers. So far I think I'm right to say that ladbrokes has the most accurate odds on english football leagues and that these odds can be used against other bookies to make profit (for example ladbrokes yesterday had 1.7 on Colchester and my local bookie had 2,05 which is a significant difference) . The problem with this strategy is that it takes a lot of time to figure out which bookmaker gives more accurate odds then the other and I would be very thankful if more experienced punters could tell me if they know some bookmakers which are very specialized in certain leagues. For example I was thinking on using odds from fonbet in russian league and tennis odds from william hill versus other bookmakers but I still don't have enough data on their odds. Any help on this topic will be highly appreciated, thanx in advanced

    Very good idea!

    Fonbet for russian leagues is good, but I doubt that William Hill is best for tennis. I think for tennis the best books are 5Dimes, Fonbet and Pinnaclesports. I have used all of them and they have good odds and are right with the odds most of the time.

      For NBA Pinnaclesports should be the best.

        Pinnacle (and my guess is that FiveDimes, too) simply is a responsive bookie in case of tennis, they have no sound expertise of their own, they simply adjust their odds to the betting money. (Believe it or not: a few years ago it was BaW who had most insider info about tennis, however, this has already changed...)

              do you mean Pinnacle? I have read an analysis in this issue (I forgot where, there was a similar debate at Bookiebusters) and I have no reason to doubt it. If you keep track PP's tennis odds for a specific tournament since the minute they disclose their offer, you will see that oddsdrifts will be in harmony with the procedure of how public expert-opinions are going widespread (and the weight of stakes flowing in one - or the other - direction)

                Thanx for all the info! The task of finding the best bookmakers in every sport has showed itself harder than i thought. I couldn't get anywhere with pinnacle's nba odds since betfair and great majority of books has practically the same odds on handicaps. Ladbrokes has shown profitable compared to other books only in english leagues( picked up arround 80 matches where there was the biggest odds difference and had 6% yield) while the results are still inconclusive in scotland and southamerican leagues(need more data) and the results in spanish, holland and portugal leagues were a disaster...Besides there is a problem to determine how big odds difference represents value, for example if ladbrokes offers 1.72 on leeds, does 1.9 at some other book mean value or should the difference be greater when you take bookie margin into account? And ofcourse the biggest problem is that there are hundreds of bookmakers and it is very difficult to distinguish authentic and specialised books from the most who simply copy odds and change them rapidly according to the cash flow. Anyway I still think this strategy has great potential, so any further help would be great,especially if you think you know some other bookmaker which is very accurate with their odds in certain league.
