Some of the Glossary terms listed below could be construed as offensive but they are not. These words in question are just a label assigned to player/team/country/race/etc which are used by hoi polloi in day to day life.


AB de Villiers - South African Cricket player.


White British. England Cricket team.

Back (Lagawo in Hindi)

Placing a bet on a team to win. 




Bhojpuri/Hindi term for naive.


Correct Score market in Football (Soccer)

Chappar Phaad Profit

Windfall gain or jackpot profit. 



Double Power

Doubling your stake in next match to recover loss.


It literally means local but when applied globally it refers to Indians. When used out of India this term refers to people from Indian subcontinent. 

It also refers to local/home made wine.

Desi Bhav

In Indian sub-continent we don't use decimal or fractional odds but we use bhav (rate). It's represented in Paisa (Indian penny). 

Desi Bhav = Decimal Odds - 1


If decimal odds on online bookies is 1.80 then desi bhav will be 1.80 - 1 = .80 = 80 paisa


Drunk. Refers to Royal Challengers Bangalore - IPL team as it is owned by Vijay Mallya whose major business is brewing, distilling.


Dhakkan means lid. When it's used in context of a person/place/team then it means rubbish.

E.g. Dhakkan team = rubbish team

Normal this term is assigned to associate cricket team/lower ranked teams such as Nepal, Afghanistan, Dutch, USA, Ireland, Scotland etc.



Dono Taraf Profit

Profit on both sides. See definition of Hedge.


Gaand, Indian term for Arse/Ass.

Greenup = Loss Kaat lo

This term is used for Betfair. When you have profit on any team the amount shown under P/L is shown in green hence the term. 

When we say greenup on Betting Adda it means that you have to cut loss on the other team and either make loss 0 or have small profit on that team.

E.g. If you have started trading by backing a team at odds of 1.85 (85p desi bhav) with £100  and when we say greenup then it means you can lay the same team or back other team to cut loss on other team. 


White. Mainly used to identify a Cricket team from England, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and other white majority countries. 


In trading this term refers to making profit on all events (ideally equal profit). e.g. In a T20 match with 2 way betting this refers to making equal profit on both teams irrespective of which team wins. In Test it means making profit on all three outcomes including draw.

Hedge is mainly used when you are trading on Betfair. With online bookies you can achieve hedge by cashout.
