Trading on the football – Something that many dream of doing successfully and if you’ve got a decent trading system behind you… You will! The thing is knowing when to stop, when to green up and when to cut your losses. Even if you have the best trading system, you need to remain disciplined.
Below are a few highly popular football trading systems that are used throughout the world of football trading. Of course, you need to practice, paper trade, practice and paper trade before you begin using real money. Trading can be highly profitable but it can also be highly problematic and can be the cause of a big dent in your bank balance.
Lay the Draw and Back 1-1
This is probably one of the most popular of all trading methods coupled up with a fail safe just in case a super quick equalising goal is scored. The Lay the Draw and Back 1-1 system involves laying the draw at a set price as well as backing the 1-1. You would then wait it out until a goal is scored and then trade out of the lay bet to green up and make a profit regardless of the outcome. You do, of course, need to ensure your profits will also cover the stake you have placed on the 1-1.
The main disadvantage to this system is that you have no chance to trade out if no goals are scored. The best thing to do here is to set value for the odds that you HAVE to trade out at. If the lay odds drop by say… 1.0… Then you trade out for an equal loss overall. Why? This is so you minimise your loss. A key part of trading is knowing when to cut your losses.
Back the 0-0
This is pretty much a direct opposite of the previous system. You back the 0-0 score line, wait for 10-15mins in the hope that no goals will be scored. You will then trade out as the odds for the 0-0 would have dropped during this period and you’ve of course, greened up.
The obvious issue with this system is if a goal is scored in the first 10-15mins before you have managed to trade out. There’s a few ways you can attempt to counter this occurring. You could back 1-0 to the favourite. You could lay the draw to reduce any losses slightly. You could even back the time of the 1st goal as 0 to 10mins. There’s a few markets where you could have a ‘tinker’ and attempt to cover your back a little.
Lay Under 2.5 Goals
Again, this plays on the ‘waiting for a goal to be scored’ type of trading. In this case, you lay the under 2.5 goals market, and wait for a goal to be scored. The odds will then increase a little, you might even have to wait for 2 goals to be scored in order to trade out for a worth while profit.
The problem here, like the first system, is that you cannot trade out if no goals are scored and might even hit a small loss if only 1 goal is scored. The difference being that the odds tend to be lower on this market, therefore the liability you have on your bet is much lower.
There! Three football trading systems to consider. What do you think? Do you trade on the football? If yes, how?
