Happy New Year!

Well mine has started well, connection issues again. BT did a great job of installing my optical fibre connection, through a large tree and across through neighbours garden to the pole. The only problem seems to be, trees grow. Apparently this is quite normal. But optical fibre cables don’t grow at the same rate, so I now have a very stretched cable which doesn’t like strong winds, which we had last night. Its up and down, so I will have to get the plonkers out yet again. Also please note I am on travels for the next couple of weeks. I will be trading as and when I can but …

What a junk coupon…

Ok, this time of year we dont expect much, but Saturday’s can often find something worth having a go at. Not today though. Seattle almost made me click, but yanks can’t play “soccer” so that just doesn’t interest me to even look if stats exist! I SO nearly layed the remain vote, it was 1.18 on Betfair when I looked but I was going out and too busy to care much. But no question that was an ENORMOUS VALUE BET. 1.18 while not one single talking head could call it either way. It was a coin toss, everyone knew that, the result proved it. So what the hell is 1.18 …

** My ‘Lay The Draw’ eBook is finally published! **

As many of my readers know, I have been working on writing a detailed eBook to publish my entire method for analysing and implementing my football trades. This is something I have been asked to do by literally hundreds of people over the years but I just never found the time until now. The footie break this summer especially with the Euros, gave me a nice relaxed period to finally put pen to paper and document each and every step, every click, every glance I make when choosing my daily Betfair trades.

ebooksmallHaving been doing this for so many years, it took a lot of time and effort to actually document everything I do because so much of it is done on auto-pilot. But finally it’s done, and after asking a few people to have a look at it and give me their thoughts, the views are very positive so I hope this will provide many readers with an extremely useful insight into this simple strategy for trading full time on Betfair. Click here to read more.

I am repeatedly being asked to publish more of my Befair trading strategies but this takes time to document fully, I am working on it. I have recently updated my page about horse racing trading where I outline my preferred methods, if that’s more your thing.


Well Brondby interests me now, not massively but enough for a small LTD. Its 0-0 at HT as I pretty much expected from the stats. The first half events dont suggest it was too busy, which is a slight concern, but looking at their stats its the second half when they seem to come alive, so lets hope thats  the case! …

Go Columbia!

Well I have never had such an enjoyable world cup football season! I am getting behind teams I have never even bothered to watch before, Algeria, Belgium, and now Colombia who are in my opinion the strongest team in the whole world cup competition. They are playing out of their skin and I can see them beating Brasil tonight! I ain’t betting, don’t get me wrong, there is a big difference between thinking, hoping, guessing etc, and TRADING. Trading is something I am on a sabbatical from as many of you have already guessed. I am very busy with a house move and loads of personal stuff at the moment …

Well I could have waited for what is more than likely going to be a full stake win, but I need to make a pizza so I am going to cut and run. As expected, Madrid set the score back level and then went 2-1 up so I am taking an exit there. I did my alternative exit strategy of laying the home team instead of backing the draw, The result is shown below. If i was watching I would be cheering on Levante now! When home team odds drop this low, this kind of exit costs nothing but gives a tiny chance of a whopping win 🙂 …

Internationals Day

Hi, I am not trading any lay the draws today, its a coupon full of international games. However, if I still had Bet Angel I would definitely be spending an evening in my office tonight, as the scalping, bookmaking and dutching opportunities are fantastic with these international games. You can bank easy money just taking a tick in the odds ladders here and there. I will do a video on how to do this as soon as I can, but I need Bet Angel again first and I have little spare cash outside of my Betfair account at the mo, so it may be a few weeks. I plan lots …

Both tempters which I turned down are 1-0 at HT, so two winners that would have been if I hadn’t ruled them out. I do so very much wish that didn’t bug me!!!!!! I noticed Roda JC v Heerenveen is 3-3 with 15 minutes to go. Any game with 6 goals and 15 minutes to go, must surely have another goal to come. With the draw at a nice round zero, I thought it worthy of an evens lay bet. Will trade out if a goal comes in. Risk £100, worth a shot I think, have done this before with success most of the time, not always though of course.

Well I am back, but today doesn’t look so hot….

Well I took my first peek at the coupon today, first time for a while. It doesnt offer any trading choices for me. Chelsea is a good one but the draw odds are too high for such an early season pick so I wont be doing that one. Schalke v PAOK in Champion’s League looks good as well, but definitely not trading it as its a cup and I don’t do those very often, unreliable for profits in my experience. Stay tuned for more regular updates as I am looking forward to a busy football trading season on Betfair this year. …

Summer update

As most of you know I don’t do a great deal of trading during summer. Football is sketchy and unreliable as far as stats are concerned. Important – I am also planning on releasing some guides on how I trade, including all of my current daily-use methods. Laying the draw is obviously my big one, but it’s far from being my only tool in the box. Its the staple diet of trading for me, but the other methods often add a good percentage on top of the year’s earnings. Watch out for updates during the coming winter, as soon as the weather changes and I get more time at the …

General news about this trading diary….

Just for info, I have had a few people asking for more detailed information about how I select my trades. I am very busy with various projects at the moment, aside from trading. I am also very busy with family stuff and possibly moving home soon, so it won’t be for a while but at some point in the near future I will be writing an ebook which will be free for download, which will detail my entire method, all the secret tips and tricks I have learned over the years to finding a winning trail of selections enabling me to make a profit year on year with only around …
