A week’s online football trading profit of £12.33
Total Pre Match Trading profits to date is £288.07. My football betting bank now stands at £388.07, 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.
A slightly busier week that the previous one with plenty of Confederations Cup activity and the final of the Under 21 European Championships traded.
I slightly deviated from my usual Over/Under 2.5 goals trades to get involved in the U21 European Championships final as I could only see the Spain price in the 90 minute betting going one way.
It was trading at just under 1.8, and I couldn’t really see it drifting so I managed to trade it a couple of times, twice backing at 1.79, and twice laying at 1.77.
In fairness it didn’t come in as I expected it would, as I thought it might steam in 6 or 7 ticks, but it moved around enough to allow me to trade in and out a couple of times for a nice quick profit.
The rest of the trades were pretty much standard trades. I made a bit of a mess of both the Brazil trades, I should have picked up more than I did in their match against Italy, and I shouldn’t have lost in their match against Mexico.
In fact the Brazilians cost me throughout the whole bloody tournament.
Getting closer to that £400.00 barrier now….. something is bound to go wrong, arghhhhhh
