Favorite My Betfair Methods – Trading On The Exchange

Announcement: I have decided to extend the one time only 40% discount for another 2 weeks until 30th April. For 40% off any purchase of my Betfair trading ebooks, use the coupon code COVID at checkout. Use this time wisely, ready to come back to the markets with a bang if the idiots in charge allow any markets to exist in the future. 🙂 

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! 🙂

Update in these uncertain times…

Well hello again budding and professional traders alike! What a time this is for us eh, and indeed for just about everyone else worldwide. As some of you know I have been meaning to make a post for a while with a discount code for all of you who are probably stuck at home and perhaps looking for something to do. A few people have nudged me over the past weeks about this and I have finally found time to sit down and do it. I have had a lot of family stuff to take care of mainly due to Covid19, teaching them some good practices for sterilisation of packages …

Football Trading Ideas for Today’s card

A few people have contacted me recently asking for a bit of analysis of their football picks when laying the draw according to the stretagy outlined in the ebook. I will try and write more regular updates for footie stuff, I’ve got out of the habit with being so busy with things outside the office for a while now. Must try harder! I have also had a lot of email back and forth with people learning pre-race trading, and I am pleased to say my Pre-Race Trader’s Bible is netting some very nice results for more than a few readers. I intend to do a post soon about that, just to …

What the hell was that?!

Well I am still in shock from Saturday’s rugby final. I can’t remember the last time I saw any team play so incredibly well and so incredibly badly within the space of one week. It was like two different teams, from different leagues! To be honest, whilst I want to credit SA with their win, and of course we must, they hardly had to win that game with the amount of huge novice mistakes and bad play by England. I can’t remember the last time I saw so many dropped passes by them. Within 20 minutes it was clear to me they were not the same team who beat the …

Rugby Trading on Betfair, and a wee World Cup sweetener

(If you’re here for the Discount code, it’s down the bottom) Hi all. It’s been a while. I’ve been all over the place recently, mostly doing stuff I would rather not be doing but some good stuff in between thankfully. I have a friend who trades rugby and since rugby is on everyone’s mind lately, I thought I would write a brief post just to open any rugby minds out there to the idea of trading. Rugby can be a great environment for beginners to play with the strategy of “laying the leader” which is basically just value betting. I posted about value bets a while back too, but generally …

Holding Message

Hi all, just a quick comment here because I am without access to email at the mo. I had a minor computer meltdown during my office reorganisation. I didn’t find out til I got back from visiting family and so I have spent the last week or two fixing and buying stuff. It led me to spending a small fortune on a whole new office set up, nice new furniture and a general spruce up, moved my Sky system and changed my working position so everything feels nice and fresh. I like to do that every few years just to avoid getting too comfy, but this time I rushed around …

Just asking a quick favour. I may have said similar things in the past (MANY times!) but if I ever post about a trade on Braga, please fire me a quick email calling me something beginning with C. It just might remind me that they always add a dampener to an otherwise great day!!!! Losing 2-0 at home, WTF?! I am never bothered by these, they come along regularly in trading, but the ONLY team which ALWAYS seems to be that one, is Braga! That’s the last time I trade them (I know I know, I have said that a hundred times, I just hate to believe in this kind …
