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! 🙂

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 …

Favour

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 …

Two nice bets

This is NOT a recommendation, but worth a mention for anyone who ‘missed out’ on any of tonight’s action thus far. Both Milan and VVV games are 0-0, both look good for being 2-3 goalers. It shouldn’t need saying that they could both end 0-0, but stats are stats and I think the U2.5 prices at around 1.2 are now VERY good value for both games.

Other footie of interest:

VVV v Heracles – I am laying the draw now at 3.15. Should be goals here so if U2.5 gets below 1.3 I may have a lay of that too. Milan v Empoli Laying the draw at HT if still 0-0 Strasbourg v Lille – IF no goals by 70 minutes then will LTD or Lay U2.5 Will lay Fulham if they go 2-0 up against West Ham (Braga really do need shooting! I must have said around 10 times over the past 5 years that I should just never touch Braga games! Yet again, I went and trusted the stats, they seem to be work beautifully for every team …
