Advice for Long Shot Bets

Punters should remember that it is often necessary to adapt their bankroll and betting strategy when it comes to these long shot bets.

For instance, if you would normally bet $10 per punt, then on long shots you might wish to only bet a smaller amount, say $1 or $2.

This is common practice and a sensible bankroll management strategy for long shots. For further guidance, see our piece on The Kelly Criterion for a better understanding on how much you should bet.

Sports commonly covered in the Long Shot Bets column include football, golf and Formula 1, while it also often features entertainment bets among many other exotic markets. Our team scour the history books and statistics to find you the best value hidden in the more obscure markets. We want to help you punish the bookies for taking their eye off the ball by concentrating mainly on +ev bets in the more popular markets.
