More frustration on Tuesday with my trade on the Arsenal V Bayern Munich match.
I placed a £200.00 back at 2.08 and a £200.00 lay at 2.04 on Monday night, I awoke on Tuesday to see both had been matched and that I had a nice £4.00 green (approximately) on all sides of the trade.
At the time Bayern were trading at between 2.02 and 2.04, so I thought I could just keep ticking this over and make a few more quid. I then managed to up my green to approximately £6.00 all round with a couple more trades.
At this stage I thought I could just keep going like this, that it was easy money. Wrong!!!
I then got a lay matched at 2.02 and was waiting for my back to get matched. I checked back about 45 minutes later to see my back hadn’t been matched and that Bayern were now trading at 1.94. How the hell did that happen?
I later heard that Arsenal had a couple of injury doubts in defence, so maybe word got out that someone wasn’t likely to make it? I also checked the odds at bwinbetting.com for a guide, and they hadn’t shown any significant movement, so I’m not 100% sure what caused it.
I left a back up at 1.99 which (if matched) would have left me roughly £1.00 green, and went to work. I got back at about 7pm to see it had been matched, so I then had the decision… do I leave it, or do I try and get back to somewhere near my £6 green?
Something told me I had got out of jail and too leave it. So in keeping with recent lacks of discipline, I decided against my better instinct to get involved again.
I put a back up at 2.02 and a lay at 2.00. Almost immediately the lay got matched and the price crashed to 1.95, I ended up losing £5.98 and getting the week off to a crap start. Another costly lack of discipline.
It’s very frustrating as I now will be spending the week trying to get back to scratch. And the worst thing is that my instinct told me not too get involved again, but I couldn’t help myself. Football betting just does these things too us.
Hopefully this will be a turning point?
