Favorite My Betfair Methods – Trading On The Exchange

pre-race trading ebook image

New for 2019

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! 🙂

Only a quick dabble this evening. I laid Aalen when 1-0 up against Munich 1860, two home goals in quick succession gave me a nice bit of green so I am using some of that to have a dabble on both the Roma and Nurnberg games, laying U2.5. Roma I am not so confident in (confident enough though) as they seem to be playing pass the parcel a bit. But stats are stats, and I will be surprised if there isn’t at least one goal in the second half.   …

Laying U2.5 on Napoli game. Under 1.3 now which is too cheap, it COULD be a low scoring game (I don’t expect that, but it’s more than possible) so I am not going heavy, just dripping in some lays now that it’s below 1.3   St Etienne v PSG game should be a goal fest, so if that stays goalless for long enough I may do similar there

Not finding time to post many trades lately, I tried on Friday and in the 2 minutes it took me to log into the site and start typing, there was a goal in all THREE bloody games I was posting about! And yes, again I decided to post before placing my orders! That peed me off enough to not bother posting and actually closed my machine down, I was due to go out anyway so I wasn’t that annoyed, but three winning trades all missed in about 100 seconds, damn that was annoying! I laid the draw in Dinamo Bucharest at 1-1 and a goal came in a few minutes …

Update

Well two goals to Hearts. I am greening, and then laying them, not heavily, but they are not “supposed” to win this game, so maybe some more green to come. Edit: For those of you who are trading, you will have spotted that a few seconds after I posted this (old habits die hard, typing before doing!), Kilmarnock got a goal. My lay order at 1.15 was a split second from matching! It’s now 1.59, grr. Nice bit of green missed there, but can’t win em all. I could learn to order my bets before typing updates, but then that seems a bit tight to me. 😀

Update

Trip out cancelled so I am sticking around to see what comes up. Well Duisburg scored again but I still made a decent profit as I laid again at 1.02 when it went 3-0, and I didn’t green until 3-2. 1.02 is a nice price with 15-20 mins left of the game and the stats showing Darmstadt score a huge amount of their goals near the end of the game. I am laying the draw in Kilmarnock game, it’s 0-0 and stats suggest it won’t stay that way, not a killer trade but at 2.8ish, it’s a bargain I think. …
