Welcome to my new fixed-odds betting column oddsON which replaces my ‘BUNKERS’ and ‘On the Line’ sections.

I intend to cover a number of sports (football, horse racing, golf etc) and would be happy to hear from anyone who has a particular sporting event they might like to see covered.  I will also be looking at the political betting when it is available!!

If any readers have suggestions or questions for future posts please use NewsnetScotland’s comments facility or you can contact me by email: oddsoneverything@virginmedia.com

Bookmakers employ a number of odds compilers and their role in the financial status of their respective organisations is a crucial one.  Most compilers specialise in a particular sport and some are better than others, which gives the punter a possible edge. 

If you use the opinions of the acknowledged expert compiler in a particular sport once the event has been ‘priced-up’, you should be able to turn it to your advantage by taking the higher odds quoted by an odds compiler who does not have the same level of expertise in that area. I will be highlighting some of the best in their field in the next few weeks and giving pointers as to where you should be taking note of variations in the odds quoted by the main Bookmakers.

First up this week is the weekend Horse Racing.
