Default What percentage of your soccer bets...

...are on 1-X-2 odds? Today we're trying an experiment on UEFA Cup. Usually before this tournament gets rolling after Christmas, we just post 1-X-2 as there is very little interest. Today, as a counterweight trial, we're just diong Asian lines. So far, our volume is up, and there's none of these 10/1 dogs to sweat out. That said, I expect the reduced margins will see our overall profit suffer a bit.

I bet very rarely on 1-X-2 myself...what about you guys?

With the exception of the final rounds of serie B, I never bet 1-x-2. Ýou pay more vig if you do so why should you?
Another thing: can you email me at bmcle64@hotmail.com
I have a question that are of great importance to me and I suspect that you have an answer.
If you could please find time I would be grateful.

Hmm, tough call... I've never really looked at how I split my plays %-wise between 1X2 and handicaps. Probably the majority of my plans are on Asian lines, though I wouldn't say that I bet 1X2 rarely...

I like the asian line better...

I use the 1x2 where I can get a huge dog and a couple of evens or so... Hit one of those a month and you're laughing. Now, I have not looked, but are those handicaps parlay-able? I think I just invented a word there [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/img]

I guess asking for totals might be a little too much at this stage [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/img]

Im using 1X2 odds only when betting underdogs and in rare occasions when taking a draw in total is around 5% of all bets.

Goon, good question about handicaps parlay-ability [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif[/img] Is it possible?

I use 1x2 for funny Veikkausliiga "underdogs", that's about it.

I guess the one thing this definitelly takes away is the draw. I had to play it somewhere else as Pinnacle didn't have the option available. I guess in a perfect world you'd be offering both.
