The game is on the corridor totals can be used in sports where the expected number of points is measured at all by tens and hundreds. It is volleyball, basketball, and tennis very rarely – in cases where offices give bets not only on the number of sets and games in a match, but points. In these kinds of activities when determining the total match between the different betting differences arise due to the difficulty of its determination.
Sometimes this difference is quite significant, and there is a probability that the final result in the so-called “corridor” – the gap between the totals, put up different offices in this match.
In the same sports as football and hockey, the bookmakers rarely refuse from the usual for these games totals 2.5 and 5.5, respectively. But if it happens, it is usually in all branches simultaneously, in view of the obvious circumstances (for example, meeting the favourite and the outsider of the championship).
Actually, if you look at the results, say, basketball games and the total exhibited by the bookmakers for this game, you will notice that a significant number of games (about half), the difference between these numbers does not exceed 3-5%. About the same percentage (in one match of fifteen to twenty), is the difference between the totals display in various offices. In this case, with a bit of luck, the result of the match may be between the totals of two different offices.
Example corridor totals:
Let us examine the meaning of “corridor” at a specific example.
This is the line in one of the matches of the championship of NBA, put up different offices. As you can see, the total value differs by 4 points, when equal to them koeffitsientakh. In this case, the meaning of the corridor will be the following: to evaluate the likelihood of the final result of the match in the interval from 194 to 197, inclusive. If it is, in your opinion, more than 10-15%, it makes sense to do the following two bets. In the office, offering total 197,5 to bet on “under”, and offering 193,5 on “over”.
Thus, the loss of both rates in our case is impossible, since the combination of these rates implies a patency of at least one of them. In this case, when the final match is less than 194 197 or more, we win one bet and lose another and our loss is 7.5 % of the entire stake for both bets. Thus, the player is protected from a big loss. If the result of the match will lie in the intended us gap (194-197), then both bets are winning and the profit from the two bets will amount to 85%.
Thus, in order to benefit from the system must pass at least one of the eleven bets.
In our example, using a small (not greatly reduce the coefficient on bid) the “shopping total”, the range of totals, you can increase to seven points if you choose a smaller total do not 193.5, and 190.5. Thus, will increase the probability of getting a result in our hallway. However, in this case, the percentage of the lost money if unfavorable outcome for us may be only 7.5%, but 24% if win only bet with the purchase.
Of course, the likelihood that the result will be exactly the way we would like. Therefore, betting on a corridor totals, as, for example, and betting on the underdogs, you need to have strong nerves and confidence. This strategy implies frequent small losses and rare but paying back all previous losses wins. However, under certain circumstances, gains may follow as often as I would like. Therefore this strategy could not be fully attributed to the strategies that are safe for capital.
