29 May England v Rep of Ireland / Over/Under 2.5 Goals – Won £1.73
1 June Bayern Munich v Stuttgart / Over/Under 2.5 Goals – Won £2.42
A week’s online football trading profit of £4.15
Total Pre Match Trading profits to date is £260.82. My football betting bank now stands at £360.82, 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.
Another quiet week, with just the two matches traded.
I only got involved in the match between England and Republic of Ireland once. It was one of those matches of which the market was hard to read, so after one trade I just decided to leave it alone.
It was a similar case with the Champions League final between Munich and Dortmund, this time my activity was limited as I was more interested in concentrating on making the most of the regular £50 Bet365 Free Bet for existing customers.
With this in mind, I just done a couple of trades in the afternoon, and then left it alone again. I was trying to get my qualifying bet (for my free bet) on at a certain price, so I didn’t want to have any distractions going on.
I know it’s not difficult to do both, but I find at times if I’ve got two things going on at once, one can accidentally get overlooked. This can lead to cock ups which can cost money, so on this occasion an over cautious safety first approach was adopted (some might call it sensible).
I’m hoping to get involved in more matches next week with the Under 21 European Championships starting and some World Cup qualifiers to be played.
