    Good evening!

    Thanks to some nice people I am finally active here.
    Been following BA for years and it's time to share some thoughts.

    Let's nail bookies!

    Comment


      Hello. - I'm sorry, but lately I realized quite some mistakes on the mainpage... I don't know if the rating of finished picks is done by mods or tipsters, so I just post the ones here which I found with a quick check.

      - Is the program not able to do half void picks? (I hope this wasn't discussed 100 times before somewhere...) That would of course explain most of these:

      England1 (justbetter)
      07.02. Bolton - Fulham H-0,25@1,98 (3,5) - Result 0-0: rated as -3,5 but it's -1,75;

      Spain1 (Mantis)
      22.11. Xerez - Sporting H-0,25@2,28 (2,5) - Result 0-0: rated as -2,5 but it's -1,25;

      Germany1 (Alex Lee)
      06.02. Hoffenheim - Hannover H-1,0@2,16 (9) - Result 2-1: rated as +10,44 but it's a Push;
      17.01. Schalke - N├╝rnberg H-1,25@1,94 (3) - Result 1-0: rated as -3,0 but it's -1,5;
      19.12. Dortmund - Freiburg H-1,25@2,12 (4,5) - Result 1-0: rated as -4,5 but it's -2,25;
      01.11. Frankfurt - Bochum H-0,5@1,93 (7) - Result 2-1: rated as +6,51; Not sure but wasn't this bet all about Bochum winning and this hw bet was just a posting mistake? Then the hw bet would've to be deleted from the record?

      Netherlands1 (Bookieinsider)
      31.01. Feyenoord - Ajax H+0,25@1,94 (4) - Result: 1-1: rated as +3,76 but it's +1,88;
      30.01. NEC - Sparta H-0,75@1,94 (3) - Result: 1-0: rated as +2,82 but it's +1,41;

      Netherlands1 (Aret)
      05.02. Willem - NAC >2,75@1,92 (3,5) - Result: 1-2: rated as +3,22 but it's +1,61;
      04.02. RKC - Feyenoord A-0,75@1,91 (5) - Result 0-1: rated as +4,55 but it's +2,275;

      NCAAB (Vezalke)
      04.02. gtown-sofla 1st ht >64@1,97 (7) - Result 35-26: rated as +6,79 but it's -7;
      23.12. ken-longb 1st ht H-12@1,90 (7) - Result 37-37: rated as +6,30 but it's -7;
      17.12. nmex - no ari 1st ht H-12,5@1,94 (7) - Result 36-26: rated as +6,58 but it's -7;
      15.12. no - flatl 1st ht H-1,5@1,95 (6) - Result 28-34: rated as +5,70 but it's -6;
      This is esp unpleasant because it has serious effects on the yield (52,37 units less profit). All 1st ht picks - strange. Don't know the procedure but could the wrong rating have sth to do with the software here,too?

        You can only put whole numbers from 1-10 as stake so those 3.5, 4,5 stakes were already manually halved from 7 and 9

        I don't think AHs existed, not in the open like now anyway, back when that calculation program was made. I guess if it could be altered, it would already have been done a long time ago..?

        Please pm Terje or any mod when you spot wrongly settled bets. It is all done manually by the admin so there's bound to be some mistakes every now and then.

          Ah, I see! That explains the half void stuff of course. Thanks... Could've figured that out by myself before (actually I guess I just forgot about it), but when you can't see the initial stake in the bet list afterwards it's confusing...

                    Hi,
                    My mate wants to register but he says he is waiting 2nd or 3rd day for confirmation of his registeration . Can anyone handle this, please?

                    Thanks in advance.

                      send me his username if hes still waiting.

                        Don't know where to put my comment, but here seems like the best place.

                        Imo, this has to be an all-time BA overstaking record: http://www.bettingadvice.com/showPre....php?idMenu=61.

                        Don't want to create a lot of big deal out of it, but I'm posting it here as an anti-example for all of us having the privilege to use the homepage as BA tipsters. Rule is of course max 10 units per GAME. I can of course, understand some exceptions with 2 bets on a game, one for 1x2/asians, one for goals, that can exceed in total that 10 units, however this is too much and is a bit childish tipstering, to be honest. Not my job of course to contact the guy, however I had to share.

                          You're spot on Xaralas, it's already been discussed by mods, he'll get warned and his stakes will be reduced.

                            Any point for such bets on mainpage?
                            I am the only thing that I'm afraid of.

                              I'll probably delete a lot of season bets, including Mightye, justbetter, and others.

                              I can accept long term bets over, lets say 3 months, but long term bets that last for a season is meaningless on this website.

                              The tipsters have probably posted them in good belief, but I dont think they are right on this website.

                              Long term bets are better posted in the forum than in the mainsite.

                              Sooner or later I will delete these long term bets

                                Just seen this. I understand the issues with long term bets on the mainpage and I guess they do get in the way of the others a bit. But from a personal point of view I found it interesting seeing them up there last season, as it lets you see how accurate the tipsters were with their predictions. I do also think they are the best way to find value early on in the season, as no one can call the first few rounds well.

                                Maybe just move the ante post tips to the bottom of the page and have current ones at the top. I don't know how they are sorted currently, but in any case it would make sense to have the more current ones near the top.

                                Would be a shame if you decide to delete them, but I do get the reasoning.
