Just the one match traded on Week 39, so my pre match trading results were just a small profit of £4.12.
Pre Match Trading Results – Week 39
20 May Mallorca v Betis / Over/Under 2.5 Goals - Won £4.12
A week’s online football trading profit of £4.12
Total Pre Match Trading profits to date is £256.67. My football betting bank now stands at £356.67, I started off the experiment with a betting bank of £100.00 and use around 75% of my available bank on my trades, which are all done pre kick off using Betfair.
Not much to report this week with just the one match traded, thankfully it was a win.
I did have to trade this match three times to get over £4.00 green on both sides. Not ideal, but sometimes it works.
It Looks Set To Be A Quiet Few Weeks For Pre Match Trading
I get the feeling it's going to be a quiet few weeks over the summer. I know that there's leagues going on all over the world, but it's finding matches with enough liquidity to trade that's the problem.
The quiet period will give me the opportunity to try out the system on matches I know nothing about.
This is something I have been looking to do for some time now. As there will be no emotion or personal opinions involved, as I would no nothing about the teams competing.
I've mentioned it in recent posts, I want to look at the possibility of being able to use this system on any football match.
In order to see if this will work in the long run, I will need to examine the difference between trading matches I know something about, and trading matches I know nothing about.
I suppose at this time of year, I have no option but to try the latter.
The one match I traded this week is a prime example of this. If I'm totally honest, I don't know much about the two teams involved. So what's the difference between trading this match, and one in South America (liquidity aside)?
Moving On To Next Season
Moving onto other issues, and the summer months will give me time to experiment with other systems and start to look at my season long bets for next year.
I will probably leave placing my season bets for next year until new managers are announced and players are signed, but I will certainly keep an eye on football bookies online to see if there is any early summer bargains to be had.
Chelsea could be a big betting mover if Mourinho comes in. It won't just be him, there is certain to be a couple of massive signings arriving with him.
I believe the markets have factored in Mourinho arriving, but maybe not a couple of world beating signings. This is just an example of what I will be looking at.
I will also try out Assured Soccer Profits this summer. That is a system that definitely requires no real football knowledge, so is ideal for this time of year.
