Little Leagues, Big Leagues – How To Bet
If on one hand these big leagues can offer a greater liquidity, on the other hand the small leagues can offer a greater mismatch, or a mismatch in the market more often.
It is certain that these advantages and disadvantages between these leagues leave many beginners/intermediate punters with doubts about which leagues to focus on.
These doubts can be answered by the bettor himself depending on his goal in sports betting. Considering that the bettor wants to work for big investors and syndicates maybe in the big leagues would be ideal… because of the liquidity.
It is not an obvious and unique answer, but if his model can control the variables perfectly there and here (I say in the big and little leagues) maybe he can weigh in on this goal of working for investors – More info at: Variables in your betting method, How to Control it?
On account that bettors working for multiple investors, a heavy money weight will drastically drop the odds of this particular match in a small league and consequently the odds of that match will lose the positive expected value (+EV).
Explaining the term of the model to adapt to some leagues and not to others, is because it is not enough for the model to price the odds for a match, any model can do that… what is fundamental is to know if the model is extracting advantage over other bettors and bookmakers or not… models that extract positive expected value (+EV) in the Premier leagues will not necessarily extract positive expected value in the Brasileirão Serie A for example.
Advantages Of Betting On Big Leagues
Because the big leagues have greater liquidity, they end up becoming the only choice of many big investors…
In the American leagues for example, who works with big stakes will hardly be able to invest everything in a game of some league in the Asian handicap… in the big leagues is different… he can invest that value easily, so this is one of the great advantages for those who have big stakes.
Since in betting as in any investment, the goal is to invest as much money as possible in all possible opportunities… that’s how you make real money in betting.
Another important point is the syndicates that have huge stakes, so for most of them it pays to invest only in high liquidity leagues, that is, the big leagues. To better understand the stakes: Difference between Units and Stake in sports betting
There are syndicates that cover low liquidity leagues, but most of them focus on these big leagues.
So the bettor who aims to work for big syndicates, the high liquidity leagues is a way… and for big investors too, because working in small leagues with reasonable stakes investors to only one or two managed to get the odds proposed by the tipster at the MAXIMUM.
