Welcome to the new series of articles for WIN appearing every Tuesday and giving you advice and examples of how to lock in more profit using trading techniques and matched betting.
So a quick introduction to who I am and what qualifies me to help you. I’m Eddie Lloyd and I’ve been a professional punter for five years now. In that five years I have worked in the head office of one of the biggest bookmakers in the country and behind the scenes learned a lot about how they think. I’ve managed betting shops and learned how the punter thinks. Once I got what I needed I left the bookie industry and armed with all the facts set up by myself and now work alongside Betfan, WIN and BetKudos. I’ve finally arrived at what it is I always wanted to do and spend all day trading, betting and looking for anyway I can to turn a profit from my punting.
There’s nothing better than sharing that knowledge with other people and that’s where these new articles will come in!
Last week I went through the simple idea behind laying your bets off to guarantee yourself a profit no matter what the outcome. If you missed that article you can read it here….
This week then I’m going to run through, using the methods from the last two weeks, how I trade a race. Below you’ll see an example of a trade I did yesterday.
So going back to the selection process I used in last week’s article. (Click here to read that again)
The 16:15 at Kempton saw a popular horse with lots of money coming for it. I went into the market and took all the money available at the current odds. You’ll see this below in the screenshot –
I took the £57 available at 5.70. This put me in a position of winning £254.50p should Windy Citi go on to win or a loss of £57 should he lose.
Later in the afternoon at around 1500 hrs I went back into the market and as predicted the price had dropped and I was able to go in and trade out a risk free profit.
Using the method I showed you last week I was able to lock in a green screen like the one below –
Now we can leave this as it is or because we have a guaranteed profit we have some more money to play with and still be in a position of not risking any money.
The second horse in the market I don’t fancy much and therefore would oppose. I can lay him for a couple of quid and boost the profit on the others but still risk nothing if he does prove me wrong and go on and win.
Here’s how my screen looked when I’d layed a £2 bet on Choral Clan –
So as you can see I’m now £14 odd better off on every other runner but even if the horse I think won’t win does go onto win I lose nothing, in fact I’ll make £0.97p profit!
Once you’ve practiced this way off betting in a race you’ll be amazed at how much money you can make in your Betfair account. You’ll never win a big sum of money but I look to make around £10 – £12 in every race and I trade this method around 5 – 6 times a day. I do get it wrong a few times and next week I’ll show you how to get out if it does go tits up! Plus this is one of many methods I use and as the weeks progress I’ll show you other trading methods.
Stick with it and you’ll be never betting the same way again!
Until then good luck and any questions please leave a comment and I’ll reply as soon as I can.
