I am still away from home and caught in floods which are affecting many of us in the UK, so not sure if I will be trading today but I have managed to get online to do some stats and there are at least a few games which interest me today. If i manage to get my internet connection stable enough to enter the markets, I will update with trades later on.
Haven’t managed to get computer set up where I am so no trading for past few days. Just got it set up so hoping to keep an eye out for a trade or two over the next few days, if this torrential weather we are getting allows games to go ahead.
I did have a trade picked out yesterday, two actually. Unfortunately I broke down in my car and couldn’t get home in time. Suffice to say, they were both winners, AAAGH! Sometimes Betfair trading can really test your patience and nerves, and the last few weeks has certainly been like that for me. I am away for the next two weeks visiting family. I will have my computer with me but won’t be trading as much as usual, I will hopefully get on some winners though and will keep the blog updated as best I can.
Well I now have eyes for MK Dons and Cardiff v Peterboro. Both are absolutely fantastic stats-wise. As I type this MK Dons have just scored and only had half of my trade matched so it will be a small winner, although I will hold out for a second goal to hopefully green at least £50 from it. The stats suggest thats a safe choice. didnt hold out, took a small profit in the end. Cardiff – no goals so far, 15 minutes in, so I am drip-feeding my trade into the markets, rather than all in at high odds (5 ish currently), i am dropping in £100 then a …
Cardiff v Peterboro – Bit pricey so may have to watch and hope there is no goal early, maybe let odds come down to 5 before entering, but these stats are awesome https://uk.soccerway.com/matches/2012/12/15/england/championship/cardiff-city-fc/peterborough-united-fc/1295619/head2head/ Montpellier v Bastia – Slightly borderline this, looks good but not the best pick I have ever seen as Bastia can hold tight at the back against some respectable teams. May go for it, may watch some of the game to decide. WIll update later. Had a few other picks but have ruled them all out as too many borderline trades makes for a bad day of betfair trading in my experience!
Well I begun with a 5 min scalp of Man City for £24 green, just before KO.
£104 greened Juventus goal. Man City got the second goal I was expecting to level the match at 2-2. 5 minutes to play, do i trade out or hold nerve for a full win profit? Hmm, nope, taking it. £168 greened. Gonna be a heavy loss on Feyenoord though, around £500. 🙁 Total loss for the day was £298, a bad day in the office, but could have been a lot worse, the annoying thing is how it could have been a stonking winner of a day. It all hinged on one tiny decision, to exit my Feyenoord trade for the back price instead of the lay price, just to …
