Well it’s been a really quiet weekend with the lack of football. I don’t know who had the great idea to play all the internationals on a Friday night as it leaves a really dull Saturday afternoon and if you have a social life it means you simply miss all those matches!
With not much else to do I decided I would try some new things and I have been quietly impressed with the selections that have been provided by the Betfair Trading Expert. I only trade top level football such as Premier League and the odd championship game but I find internationals and the lower leagues simply too hard to predict so I thought I would give “Dr. Matt Abrahams” picks a go and trade those with some low stakes for a bit of fun.
From Friday through to Saturday evening I managed to trade 9 of matt’s selections on the football and only 1 of them was a loser! I don’t normally like following other peoples picks as I like to take full responsibility for my own losses but from what I have seen this is some advice that could help out a lot of new traders to Betfair.
As I said when I did a review of the Betfair trading expert, it is quite similar to the football trading system by Ian Erskine however you get a lot more systems and selections to play with. It’s well worth a look for those looking for some good and easy to learn betfair trading strategies.
The Shock of the year
So it was a quiet relaxed weekend making a bit of Beer money on the football till the shock of all shocks on Saturday night.
Turns out, I missed a massive opportunity on the darts. The normally unbeatable Phil Taylor was finally beaten and after watching this tournament unfold all week, sods law would dictate that I missed one of the biggest sporting shocks this year.
Actually it has to go down as THE biggest shock of the year as Phil Taylor is simply unstoppable when it comes to sky’s televised darts. His starting price for last nights game was an incredible 1.08!! Some people must have made (and lost) a mint last night! Just sad I missed the whole thing!
However, I must say I did feel like it was coming, as the previous night Phil Taylor had a starting price of 1.15 (Vs Anderson) and was losing for a long time in that game, yet his price never rose above 2. The markets are in love with Phil Taylor and some people see backing him as buying money. Well I think (and hope) people will think twice going into the World Championship in December which is promising to be a big event for those who trade on Betfair especially.
