The Man’s A Genius

Posted on December 26, 2011 by  

The word genius is often banded about and very misused but what the hell, the email I got from Big Mike Marsland was, well, genius.

Update – Big Mike Strikes Again….

Received this in my inbox…….

In Racing today wait until as late as possible here as there are just 8 runners and its a magical frame. I fear brown envelopes. However if 8 go to post then we have a mathematical advantage. Colebrook is 1.45 for the place site via a Bookmaker but you can lay back now to the Betfair place site at 1.19 so a 26 tick profit before the start! Mind you 8 still have to run so be watchful.

Got Colebrook at 5/2 (3.50) each way so 1.50 for the place and laid for 3.6 in the win market and 1.20 in the place market.

All panned out perfectly for just under a 9% ROI as we fully backed / laid before the off this time. As it turned out Colebrook was Unplaced so that was a nice top up for our Betfair account.

Like we say, Genius.

See for yourself (here is an extract of what I got)….Over to you Mike.

Big Mikes Monday Column

I used to get very excited about a bet which `looks` the part at Ffos Las. 12.45. Here we have – which on the face of it – looks a `Golden Goose`. They come along maybe 2 or 3 times a year. Bookies hate them. I can assure you this morning that all Stationers in West Wales will run out of brown envelopes as the layers will be looking to reduce the race to <5 which of course will scupper the trade.

If the unlikely happens and 5 run (!) then the bet works like this…….

Captain Sharpe – Play £100 ew at BOG which is 7/1 with bet365

Concentrate on the Place side.

At SP the 7/1 is equivalent to 2.8 ish The Lay Price on Betfair is 1.3. So via SP / BOG if placed you will pick up £175 for £100 place stake. If you lay £200 back to Betfair it will cost you £60.

So if the horse places you pick up a net £115 and if unplaced you will pick up a net £100 (£200 less £100).

Now on the win side its more difficult. Here you are relying on a subsidy from the place bet and also a bit of in running support from the lemmings.

The first thing to do is assess your profit if the horse wins which will be £700 at BOG. Then pre start you must change your focus into `liability`. Try and lay back as much as you can for a Liability of £400. I think you will get about £60 back via betfair at current prices.

Then you are reliant on the lemmings to retrieve the balance of your £100 as this bet in effect is geared to the place winnings. So I would suggest mines at 6.2, 5.2,4.2 & 3.2 and just in case a big one at 1.7.

It’s a purely mathematical exercise and geared to the place site BUT all this is useless (as I suspect) brown envelopes will show their face before 12.45.

Good luck if popping your toes in the water.

This all panned out to perfection.

In fact Captain Sharpe drifted to 8/1 (9.00) at the off. So we effectively had odds of 3.0 on the place against 1.3 to lay on Betfair. The 1/10 fav Hollow Tree easily won the race (Captain Sharpe came in 2nd) and whilst none of our in-running bets were matched we have laid £45 off pre-race in the win market at 10’s. So our £100 EW returned £300 at the bookie for £100 profit less our £60 place lay at Betfair for £40 profit and we had £45 (£43 after comm) lay winner at Betfair for a £83 overall profit.

Like I say GENIUS!

    If only I understood all that!! Would like to get involved but I can see myself losing shedloads trying to follow those instructions in running especially. Needs a lot of simplification for the layman imo

    Yes this is not necessarily a starter bet, just an example of the type of strategic advice that Mike gives out. His support is excellent too so well worth a look there is loads of stuff inside the site like this.
