Pre Match Trading – Week 39 Results

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, as there was just the one match traded, so thankfully it was a win. I had to trade this match three times to get over £4.00 green on both sides.

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. It will at least give me the opportunity to try out the system on matches I know nothing about, which is something I have been looking to do for some time now.

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 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, as that is a system that definitely requires no real football knowledge, so is ideal for this time of year.

  1. Seems good results that you are having,but if you deduct the price you are paying monthly surely its not that great,as it aint the cheapest of products!

  2. Hi Steve, thanks for the comment.

    I’m not using the paid version, this is a system of my own I’m trying. I’m just basically trading Over/Under 2.5 goals, and occasionally the outright match winner market (if I spot what I think is an obvious wrong price). The paid version seems to cover a lot more markets than I do, if I was using that, I would be looking for a far bigger return than I am currently making.

    At the start of next season I might look at bumping my account up to £1K and going with that, then the results (assuming I keep making a profit) might look a lot better. At the moment I am just experimenting really.
