Favorite My Betfair Sports Trading Strategies

Welcome to my Betfair trading blog, this began back in 2012 as an online diary of my football trading selections. Due to feedback from readers it quickly evolved into an explanation of my general approach to the markets, along with educational articles for people interested in taking up exchange trading themselves. In 2013, after a growing number of requests, I began to document my strategies in ebook format, something I only finished doing at the end of 2018 with my final ebook explaining my approach to pre-race trading in the horse racing markets.

If this is your first visit here, please take a minute to read my Welcome page which explains some of my background and some important things all aspiring Betfair traders should consider before diving in. For anyone new to the sports betting exchange, I have a completely free eBook which explains all the basics about trading, how it works, and how to get started as a complete novice.

Trading on Betfair allows you to work from the comfort of your own home with no travel costs and very few setup costs compared to most other types of business. If you’re a sports fan it can also be an extremely enjoyable way to earn a living! Sounds great doesn’t it?! Well it is! But it takes a serious amount of dedication, practice, and self-discipline. If you’re looking for a ‘hobby’, please look elsewhere! If you’re looking for a whole new career, be prepared to put in the hours. You’ll need to!

If you’re up for the challenge then go for it. I’m confident the information on my site will genuinely help you achieve success in your new career. I would wish you luck, but if you’re trading properly then you won’t be needing any of that! Leave the luck for the gamblers, they really do need it! 🙂

Site issues and big RacingTV discount for racing traders

Hi all, sorry, it’s been a hell of a week both with home stuff and tech stuff. It began when I ran site updates and it broke something. Some of you may have noticed some downtime on the website over the past few days. My web guy is helping fix it, it may already be fixed but we will only know when the final updates are done. (Please note I am not referring to the ‘new site’ I have mentioned a few times, this is just to update the software on the hosting platform running the current site.) Anyway, the ‘rant’ was put to one side during this, although my …

Brief Update prior to “The Rant”

After posting the 50% Black Friday discount a few days ago (click here for details if you missed it), and after suggesting I would be having a bit of a “rant” this weekend, I received quite a few emails. Thanks to all those who sent them in. I now know just how many people have been waiting for quite a while now until they could afford to buy some of my trading ebooks, especially the highest-priced Pre Race Bible, and I am even more pleased that this current 50% discount has enabled you to finally grab it and also grab yourself some useful studying to do during what I suspect …

A very special ‘Black Friday’ offer…

G’day traders! As many of you know, aside from commenting on football and horse racing trading, from time to time I also use this blog as my (only) outlet for an occasional rant about the state of the world and my views on current events. OK, I don’t get out much, this is true! I usually get a few emails commenting on those posts, sometimes with quite interesting and thoughtful responses too, although I still try not to do it too often as this is a Betfair trading blog after all. I began typing a post today to announce a significant discount offer, and then I set about putting the …

FAQs, In Play Trading, and a coupon update

Apologies to those who noticed the coupon ended prematurely, that was my mistake when setting it up in the payment processor. I have extended the SUMMER2021 coupon until the end of August, this provides a 25% discount off any of my sports trading ebooks, and this time it will definitely run until the end of August. FAQs –  I have had a few good suggestions from regular readers about my plans for a new site, one of which is the sitewide/trading-wide FAQs page where many past questions have been answered by email and really should be published for everyone to benefit from. This is underway now and I am incorporating …

Plans for new sports trading website & big July discount code.

Well so far the summer has been very busy for me and I thought it’s about time I posted an update, announce some plans for the website (maybe a whole new one!), and also to provide a very special discount code as quite a few readers have asked when I will run one again. I’ve set up a coupon giving a pretty substantial 30% discount off any of my trading guides. Just enter the code SUMMER2021 at checkout to get 30% off everything in your basket. Offer expires July 3oth. I must say a big thank you to all those who have thanked/complimented me on the Pre-Race Trader’s Bible which …

Some pre-off horse racing trading analysis & a new discount coupon.

Howdy all! I trust you’re all queued up for your ‘vaccine’! Best of luck with that! I am so pleased to see we have no recorded cases of flu this year, according to Public Health England. Of course that ‘must’ be because of the immense success the lockdowns and social distancing measures have had at stopping the spread of Covid. Except, they haven’t have they, and it has spread widely despite the magic measures. But somehow these fairly ineffective measures have annihilated flu to zero (not ONE recorded case!) since Covid turned up in the social consciousness! It’s obviously completely impossible that flu symptoms are being ‘mistaken’ for Covid symptoms, …

Football trading in these strange times… and a coupon correction

Morning all. Hope you’ve been to church on this sunny Sunday! 😀 A quick word about the peculiar footie of late, minus the crowds. I have had a few emails from people over the past week asking about stakes and how they are getting less predictable results from the stats etc. I have also had a chance to chat with an old friend who is trading football daily, and was interested to hear his take on things, which are similar to mine. The lack of crowds is a big factor in trading. As any readers of my lay the draw ebook will know, as I have written about it for …
