New Market

I had a record whopping eleven bets on today's quarter-final, all based on the low scoring and tight nature of the small sample of 16 previous Euro quarter-finals.

A new market has appeared, although it may have been around for a while and I've just not noticed it. It's the "Match Odds and Over/Under 2.5 goals" market, which is of interest to me as a draws aficionado, who has pointed out ad nauseum that the two markets are related - if you expect less goals than the market, the draw price is value, and the Unders markets are value. I'm hoping this market will be kept into next season's domestic leagues, as it offers another outlet for the XX Draw selections. Not too much in-play liquidity though, were I tempted to lay off.

Looking at today, I have also had bets on the Under 2.5, Under 3.5, HT Draw, HT 0-0, First Half Goals Under 1.5, Draw, HT/FT - Draw/Draw and backs of the first goal after 30 minutes. 0-0 really would be a 'perfect' result, but with 9 of 16 (now 10 of 17) similar games being scoreless at half-time, they seem to offer as good value as any other bets available.

Second half just under way, and extra time would be very sweet.
