Pre Match Trading does what it says on the tin, and is one of our recommended Football Betting Systems. In a nutshell it is a system that spots misaligned odds on Betfair and works out what the real odds should be, allowing it’s members to place ‘back or lay’ bets in anticipation of the odds moving to where they should be.
The idea is that you have placed your bets, and then traded out of the bet with your winnings firmly in place before a ball is even kicked….. and having used the system I can confirm that it does work.
In this Pre Match Trading Review, we will tell you exactly what you get from the service.
What Do I Get From Pre Match Trading?
There is three major features you get from Pre Match Trading. They are the weekly emails sent out with advice for the weekend’s Premier League matches, access to the chat room, and the chance to use the excellent Pre Match Trading tool.
Starting with the weekly emails, and they are sent out on every Saturday and Sunday that Premier League matches are played on. There is generally advice on around 4 Premier League matches on a Saturday, while on Sunday it obviously depends on how many matches are scheduled for that day.
You will also get access to the chat room. Here you can chat to other members and ask advice, or you can just follow what they are doing and pick up tips without even getting involved.
The thing I like most about the chat room though, is that you can have direct contact with the system’s administrators, Emil Genev and Adam Ersser. These guys are in there regularly and are happy to answer questions and communicate with members. I have found Adam is there nearly every Saturday afternoon – when the chat room seems to be at its busiest.
The third feature is the best and most exciting, and basically is the whole essence of Pre Match Trading. This is the opportunity to use the Pre Match Trading (PMT) tool, also known as Shirley.
This is the bread and butter of the whole service. I have included a recent screenshot I took of the tool from a Premier League game earlier this season.
There is an automated service, and a manual service in this section. The automated service looks the best one to me, and it is available on all major English and European leagues.
A closer look at the screenshot below shows you how the Automated service works. In the picture you can get an idea of just how the tool works. There are four columns of prices. The first one tells you the current odds on Betfair (£30.00 in Free Bets Here). The second one tell you where the PMT tool believes the current odds should be, the third column gives us the price with Pinnacle, and the final column is the spread price.
It is the second column that is the important one. This column alerts you to a misaligned price. If you look at the current price for Under 3.5 Goals (first column), it is trading at 1.68 at the time, but the PMT tool has calculated that it should be trading at 1.71 (second column). This gives you the knowledge that the 1.68 is likely to drift, allowing you to get a lay bet in early.
This is a typical example of how the Pre Match Trading works. A misaligned price like this occurs in almost every match I look at. It’s really a case of ‘you get out what you put in.’ If you are prepared to put in the work and look around you will find plenty of these misaligned prices.
I find that looking for my own trades is a far better way of using the system. The automated system (in the screenshot above) covers all major games in Europe, so why the hell would you not use it as much as you can?
I get the feeling that a lot of members just follow the emails. I suppose that’s fine, but if everyone is trying to get matched on the bets in the email, it will probably make it harder. Also, by just doing this you are not getting true value for money, as there is so much more to the system.
Speaking of value for money……
How Much Does Pre Match Trading Cost?
Two Weeks – £20.00
One Month – £39.00
Three Months – £106.00
Six Months – £191.00
Prematchtrading works out at roughly £10.00 a week, which isn’t the cheapest betting system around. I believe you will need to trade with a minimum of £200.00 to make this system work for you.
With a betting bank of £200.00 you should make that tenner a week back in two to three trades – and there is generally plenty of opportunities to make that tenner back mid week, leaving the weekends for profits.
That said, if you are serious about trading pre match – no matter what size betting bank you are using – I would still recommend subscribing for a month or so, as it is amazing what helpful tips you can pick up just from observing the PMT tool, and you pick up a lot of helpful advice in the chat room. Put it another way, you can certainly learn a hell of a lot from being a member.
If you are in any way into trading pre match, but think this service is a bit expensive, I would still give it a go for a month or two. The reason why? Well because as someone who trades pre kick off myself, I have found some of the information I have picked up and learned invaluable. It is amazing what helpful tips you can pick up just from observing the PMT tool, and you pick up a lot of helpful advice in the chat room.
This service can open your eyes to something obvious you are missing, or it could totally complement your own trading methods….. for this reason, it is certainly worth a look.
Pre Match Trading is . It isn’t a system that will drain your betting bank, as you are only trading one or two tick movements. Using the PMT tool, the one or two tick movements will more often than not move in your favour, resulting in profits.
