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! 🙂

Are you interested in trading horses in-running? Plus a Spring 20% Discount

horse racing jumps

Hi all, and Happy Spring, at last! The new site is coming along. For a million or so reasons, it’s been much slower than expected but it is progressing and hopefully not far off publishing it now. Please note you won’t see any changes as it progresses. The site is being built in an offline environment which will then replace the current site completely, when the big red button is finally pushed (no not that one, no need for masks!) Quite a few people have asked if I will publish more ebooks and I may do yes. There aren’t many more I could publish as I don’t want to publish …

Ho Ho Ho and all that, and a Xmas 20% Discount

Just a quickie post because I accidentally saw a calendar today and realised it’s the 20th of bloody December! I’d like to say a big thanks to the many traders out there (and beginners especially) for the encouraging emails and feedback I have received this year. The Pre Race book has made huge dents in people’s progress this year for many of you wanting to crack the mother of all markets, the illusive but lucrative, and a tad scary, pre race markets! I really appreciate hearing your stories and feedback, not just about how much my ebook helped you get a grip on your trading but also on how many …

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.) More importantly I just wanted to drop a quick post to alert …

Brief Update

I have received some great feedback on the content of the Pre Race trading pdf which, without wanting to sound arrogant, is kind of expected now as I really have received countless compliments and thankful emails since it was published. I have yet to receive a single complaint or even a remotely negative comment from any of its readers, and it really warms the old cockles to be able to say that. 🙂 I really do appreciate the extremely kind words some of you have sent in, although Mr M. clearly doesn’t seem to understand what Black Friday is ‘supposed’ to be about when he said: ‘Your pre race book …

The new website has been delayed slightly (more info in the next post) but I do plan to get it finished and live as soon as possible so that people can cram their knowledge as I think trading on Betfair could be a real life-saver for many in the coming global depression. After Christmas everything usually turns down economically, people have spent a lot for the Christmas festivities, it’s dark, cold, wet and generally miserable, and with everyone facing an end to the holiday season and the prospect of returning to work, it’s the most likely time for big problems in the financial markets and general downturn across the board. …

FAQs & In Play Trading

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 the suggestions either into the design which will go live soon, or at least in the plans for content to add to the new site after it goes live. I would like to ask everyone to please consider which topics they would like to see covered in more depth on the site and let me know …

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!) I must say a big thank you to all those who have thanked/complimented me on the Pre-Race Trader’s Bible which many have told me is “the best product on the market.” These messages really are important to me because it shows that readers do appreciate the effort and can see my huge motivation in actually wanting to help people make money from the horse racing markets, rather than just throwing out a glossy product for the purpose of …
