I get increasingly frustrated by the continued mis-use of the word value, so much I thought I’d try to help clarify the matter. See, my gripe is that when someone wins a bet or a tip they instantly proclaim “GREAT VALUE”, regardless of the situation. Honestly, the majority of people who use the word value on a regular basis will do nothing to establish whether a bet is or isn’t value at all.
Firstly, lets go over what ‘value’ means (again). Good value can be found when the odds of a given outcome are greater than the perceived chance of success. I know I have mentioned it before, but the word is being used more frequently than ‘like’ or ‘you know’ in a post match interview.
I have two great examples at either end of the spectrum that show how regularly value in betting is misused:
What we try to do at terrytipster.com, is find the bets where the % chance is HIGHER than the odds – the true definition of value. By using this approach and providing we get our numbers right, we will ensure long term profits, something we have done with some consistency in the past.

I used Torres as the image to highlight that even though he contributed to the UCL successes of last season, the £50,000,000 paid for him was disproportionate for his contribution. Another good example – his purchase aided the ultimate success/goal of the club, but it doesn’t necessarily make it good value
TIP: DON’T CONFUSE VALUE WITH PROFIT
