Specialize In One Sport

Test Your Betfair Trading Strategies
Don’t do what I did, when I first started trading on Betfair!
There are some great videos available on youtube from the likes of Caan Berry and others. However don’t watch them and think that you will immediately be able to replicate exactly what they are doing.
You really have to build an understanding of the markets and understand the right situations for each strategy.
For example when I first started I would watch a video about scalping. Then immediately go and test it out on the next horse market that was starting. This would inevitably go very wrong as I didn’t have the understanding of the horse markets that I needed to.
This is why it is really important to test out your strategies. Using very small stakes.
What this does, is enable you to build your experience and knowledge of the betting markets you want to take on. Then eventually start to generate an income from your Betfair trading.
Becoming Profitable Takes Time
Pre event trading, in-play trading, scalping, swing trading, lay the server, back the server. There are so many different approaches that you can try with each individual sport.
However one key thing to keep in mind is that becoming profitable will take time.
Many people go into Betfair trading after they spent some time sports betting or have been involved with matched betting. Perhaps thinking that it is going to be a relatively easy way to make some extra money.
This isn’t true, the markets are competitive and becoming profitable will likely take some time.
Even the best Betfair traders had to start somewhere.
Make sure you give yourself time to learn the markets. Don’t pressure yourself with an unrealistic goal of making thousands of pounds profit within a month or two.
