Some bets are more rewarding than others. 1 bet a day has been looking at all legal betting opportunities and here we discuss the risk and reward for a number of betting opportunities.

1. Grand National
The yearly prestigious horse event, Grand National, is without doubt a very rewarding event for those in the know. The winning horse this year was Pineau De Re with jockey Leighton Aspell. The odds was 25-1 for the winning horse, not bad. If betting £20 you would get £500 back if putting Pineau De Re as the winner. More info about the races and the rewarding journey can be found in the winners interview at BBC.

2. Spread betting
Another potentially highly rewarding type of betting include spread betting. Spread betting allows you to trade on price movements of shares, commodities, currencies, elections, sport or hot news events. Read more >>

Sweden Vs Portugal: World Cup Play Offs

Nov 13, 2013   //   by markus   //   News  //  Comments Off

This weeks most exciting match has to bring us to Sweden where Portugal take on the swedes for a place in the World Cup and two of footballs superstars take to the stage to fight it out and unfortunately one will be missing from the world cup and those two players are of course Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Both are incredible goal scorers so you can count on both of them scoring in this game and providing that bit of magic.

It is a two legged tie and should provide good entertainment.

Portugal will go into this game as favourites for having the better team on paper but that does no mean you should discount Sweden who do have very good technical players but are probably not known on a global scale.

Safe bets would be on Portugal to qualify and both Ibrahimvic and Ronaldo scoring.

Online poker vs casino

Online betting aside, online poker and casino betting are two of the fields with greatest opportunities to earn money online. Obviously, far from everyone win and there are many risks if you don’t know the game or have an unlucky day. At the same time, there are many great rewards, especially if you play tournaments where the initial deposit is rather low.

Playing online is associated with lower entry costs, since there are no entrance fee like in physical casinos. That is true for both online poker and casino. There are certain elements of luck in both of the games. Both casino and poker players can benefit from counting numbers/cards. You can play both online casino and poker from home, without going out of the door.

There are more rules and strategy to adopt in online poker compared to casino. Poker is more of a skill game, while casino is more dependent on your luck. In fact, most really good poker players are making decent money from playing online. It’s way harder to make money from casino games, regardless if you play baccarat or roulette.

Looking for a guide about poker online? Here is one in Swedish and one in English. The more you read the better you become. Read more >>

Aug 22, 2013   //   by markus   //   News  //  Comments Off

As the Barclay’s tournament begins in the US we look at who is favourite to win.

Unsurprisingly Tiger woods is the bookies favourite to win the Barclays tournament at 11/2 with Rory Mcllroy sitting in second at 12/1.

Rory Mcllroy is still searching for his best form but cannot be ruled out to win this competition with the talent he has shown throughout his career. Read more >>

Benteke Betting – what is he worth?

Jul 10, 2013   //   by markus   //   News  //  Comments Off

Christian Benteke has handed in a transfer request to force out a move from Aston Villa who bought the Belgian for £7 million from Genk last summer.

He has decided to not to take part in Aston Villa’s pre-season tour in Germany and it is thought that the people around him like his agent have strongly advised him to force a move out from Villa where he had a fantastic season by scoring 19 goals in the league and played a big part in keeping Villa a float.

Brazil Vs Mexico: Confederations cup

Jun 18, 2013   //   by markus   //   News  //  Comments Off

The confederations cup has been rather entertaining so far with nations bringing their strongest teams along and it is both Brazil and Spain that are strong favourites to win the competition but Italy are definitely contenders but we turn our attention to Friday’s game where Mexico take on Brazil.

Mexico will go into this game with everyone expecting them to lose and will be the under dog’s but they need a good result if they are to prevail further into the competition following a 2-1 defeat to Italy but Mexico showed they are capable of beating the Brazillians as they showed in the Olympic games but this will be more difficult with more senior players and they will have to be at the top of their game defensively to hold of the likes of Neymar and Hulk and they do have an outlet through Giovani Dos Santos who has proved that he can be a problem for defenders with his quick feet.

Brazil go into this as strong favourites and on paper they are by far the better team with the majority of their player playing for top teams in Europe or at least being linked with the best and one man that Mexico will have to watch out for is the new Barcalona man Neymar who showed against Japan what he is capable of with a beautiful volley into the top corner. Also by being in their home country there is a huge pressure for Brazil to win this competition but they will have to overcome Spain at some point to do so which can be a very difficult task but they should get through the group stages with comfortably and from there they should be capable of beating the majority of teams left in the competition.

This is an easy one and I’m going to predict a 2-0 win to Brazil.

Bayern Munich Vs Borussia Dortmund: Champions League Final

May 24, 2013   //   by markus   //   News  //  Comments Off

As the season closes we all look to the big final that is yet to be settled in an all German Final at Wembley between favourites Bayern Munich Vs Borussia Dormund who have impressed in this competition.

We begin with the under dogs Borussia Dortmund who have been immense throughout this competition who were on the edge of leaving the competition until two late goals saved them from an exit and they also impressively beat Real Madrid at home 4-1 and won over the two legs to find themselves in the final. Recently they found out that one of their top players Mario Gotze will be missing from the team following an injury and coincidently has agreed a deal to join Bayern Munich in the summer. Although they are missing Gotze they still have big players in Reus and Lewandowski who can make the difference.

Following Bayern Munich’s upset last year where they lost to Chelsea on penalties at their home ground they will be looking to put that behind them and make up for the lost and destroy Borussia Dortmund as strong favourites in this final and after their demolition job on Barcelona it seems that they are they have shifted the European kings on their side and have been amazing throughout the competition beating the likes of Arsenal, Juventus and Barcelona.

I’m going to have to go with Bayern Munich, the strength and depth they have throughout the team is far superior to Borussia Dortmund but we mustn’t rule out their opponents who can be very deadly on the counter.


FA Cup Final Preview: Wigan Vs Manchester City

May 10, 2013   //   by markus   //   News  //  Comments Off

Manchester City will go into this game as firm favourites with the calibre of players they’ve got but this is a final and anything can happen and all players on the field will be up for the challenge.

Manchester City have seen a dip in form recently in the premier league having lost out on the title to their rivals Manchester united and have seen a defeat to Tottenham and a poor draw with Swansea at home but with the players they have they are sure to be motivated for this one and have quality in all areas of the field.

Wigan Athletic currently fighting relegation sitting in 18th and there performances have been impressive in terms of attacking but defensively they have let themselves down and struggle to play Martinez’s style of play and it will be difficult for them to hold out Manchester city. But if they can fix up their defence in time they may have a good chance because going forward they are a threat with Kone impressing all season.

I think this game has an inevitable result and there will only be one winner in Manchester City they just have too much quality throughout their team the only way they will lose is if they take Wigan for granted but even so I still think it will be extremely hard for Wigan to deal with City’s quality players in Aguero, Tevez, Silva and Toure.
