Dropping odds strategy & how to win
The best strategy is to find value through "sleepy bookmakers". Once you find an event where the odds have dropped for the majority of bookmakers (reliably on 80%+ from all the sportsbooks), use the knowledge to place value bet at the "sleepy ones". They are most likely going to adjust their prices according to the global odds movement, so one can either cash out the bet with profit using matched betting tactics or enjoy increased value in the odds taken. This is due because of the fact that every bookmaker will try to maintain a balance for every market he accepts bets for. Most bookmakers’ opening odds also tend to be a bit different - due to software or oddsmakers’ view - the once that got them a bit off will have to adjust over time. There are multiple adjustments done for each event offered at a bookmaker between opening odds and its starting time.
