Making A Million From Sports Betting And Trading – May Results

Making A Million

Sports are gradually returning and things are looking up from a sports betting/trading perspective.

Again my main focus this month was on casino offers but the return of German football has been a welcome one!

Sports Betting and Trading Challenge

Looking ahead June promises the return of the Premier League along with other football. 

This brings more value betting opportunities and also matched betting opportunities which in turn should mean there is more profit to be made.

But for now let’s take a look at results from May in the ongoing making a million from the sports betting markets challenge.

Advantage Play – Casino Offers

Let’s start with where most of the profit came from in May.

In May I did 235 offers.

A total profit £1372 was made. 

Another solid month of profit from casino offers and I got the chance to check out a new service Bonus Accumulator, which I was impressed with. They highlighted pretty much all the offers that I been previously manually working out and seem on top of finding as much value as possible from casino offers.

So going forward that will be the service that I use to exploit casino offers.

Casino Offers May

If you are still not taking advantage of casino offers and interested in leaning more.

I have linked a video and article below which should be helpful.

Matched Betting – Sports Offers, Arbitrage, Value Betting

There were a few matched betting offers around and I managed to pick up some value bets.

Although it didn’t seem like the market was able to adjust to there being no crowd. So relying on the market price to indicate value might not have been the best idea.

You could see this as starting prices in football didn’t seem to mean much and there were massive adjustments made in-play after 10 mins in the match odds market.

During May I made 59 bets.

A loss of -£127 was made.

Sports Betting Results

In May I made a total of 24 bets.

A loss of £45 was made.

During May I had a look through my long term betting results as for the last year I have been a losing sports bettor.

I also delved deeper into my long term stats dating back to 2017.

Betting Results

From the graph I can see that I am performing well betting MMA and also in-play MMA/Football over the long term (This is shown as No Sport on

Although the sample of bets isn’t huge it looks like my pre match football bets (red line on the graph) are not really making any money. 

It makes sense going forward to increase my bet size on Mixed Martial Arts and leave betting pre-match on football alone. I am very confident in my edge betting MMA markets but obviously football markets are a lot sharper.

Hopefully this change should see a decent profit made over the coming year.


Previously I had been using Trade On Sport and FTS Racing. I won’t be using these services until sport resumes in normal form. Both are good services and I am confident long term they will be profitable but during this period I want to be cautious. 

My main focus is going to be on area’s that I am confident I have a large edge in ( Casino offers, mma betting, pre-match trading.)

Thoughts Going Forward

Got to admit I have been pretty disappointed with results this year after doing really well last year, I hoped that momentum would continue.

However at the end of the day it is only betting and with everything that’s happened I should really be grateful for everything that I have already. For a lot of people that live on this world there is no opportunity to make money from the sports betting world. 

In fact there is very little opportunity for them at all.

Puts things into perspective, anyway moving on to June.

The return of the Premier League is sure to bring more matched betting offers to the table and should be some good pre-match trading opportunities.

Thanks for reading, hope you have a profitable June.


Making A Million From Sports Betting And Trading – February Results

Making A Million

Last month wasn’t the best start to the year as a very small profit was eeked out by the end of January.

It was nice to start a new month, February was a month where I was determined to make some progress towards the £1,000,000 profit target.

Lets take a look at how things went.

Sports Betting and Trading Challenge

Matched Betting – Sports Offers, Arbitrage, Value Betting

Its been a really good month from a value betting perspective.

Again very little matched betting going apart from the Bet365 inplay offer.

I did ramp up my sports arbitrage betting this month hammering a Mr Green account.

Didn’t land any 2ups with Bet365 which are always a good earner.

In February there were 348 matched betting offers and value bets.

A total profit of £2023 was made.

Advantage Play – Casino Offers

On to the casino results.

Got to admit this month I to start to feel quite jaded about grinding out casino offers.

It just becomes pretty mindless and unfulfilling when you do it day after especially when you go through tough periods.

On the flip side though you can still a get a decent hourly return. There are people in this world  doing hard labour for much much less and I am/was probably being a bit of a pussy.

Imagine telling some poor guy working in North Korean labour camp about feeling jaded making £25+ an hour playing casino games. 

That thought quickly puts things in perspective.

In February I did 256 offers.

A total profit of £1192 was made.

Betting And Trading Results - June Report


Sports Betting Results

Sports Betting Results

Very low volume of sports bets this month. 

Which was probably a combination of being unwell for a few weeks and the fact that I can’t seem to turn this bad run around at the moment.

Only 11 bets were made in February for a total loss of -£57.


Trade On Sports

Coming up to nearly six months with the Trade On Sports service now.

Its a service that I like but my results haven’t been the greatest lately.

Lets take a look at the results from the 2 systems that I currently follow.

Staking £50 per selection

Tennis Results – 39 selections in January, a loss of -£677 was made.

Staking £102 per selection.

Inplay Football Results – 22 selections a loss of  -£248 was made.

Total – -£925

So overall I am pretty much breakeven with TOS after a really strong NFL season where a profit of £920 was made.

(Trade On Sports official results will be different to mine due to missed bets, different prices taken on tennis.)

Below are the results in graph form since starting to follow the service.


Stick Or Bust?

Despite going through a rough period of results, I still intend to stick with Trade On Sports.

My initial plan was to go with the service for a year and then reasses things.

There is a plan in place that will enable the automation of the strategies that I follow.

Which would be a big plus for me and put aside the issue of missing out on selections due to family commitment etc.

Plus I know from the excellent blog daily25 that in sports betting there will be losing periods.

Even with services that are profitable long term. That’s just the reality of betting and something you have to come to terms with if you want to win long term.

Service Used

FTS Racing

Next up is FTS racing service which provides Betfair SP selections.

I have also included Ian’s horse racing podcast selections in the results.

Not a pretty graph.

Still early days with this service but a bloodbath in February puts the service into a negative overall now.

However again my plan is to stick with it for a full year and see things out before making any changes.

I think a lot of people jump on and off services very quickly. But your never going to time things perfectly and hit the good patches of variance each time.

Just got to ride it out and look at things over the longer term.

FTS Racing Results – -£885

My own trading this month was solid if not spectacular.

I mentioned being unwell for a few weeks and from experience have found its best to leave the markets alone if your not feeling very sharp.

A profit of £488 was made from trading.

Thoughts Going Forward

It was nice to get a decent winning month in after January.

Hopefully the services that I follow will have stronger months going forward, which could push me through the £100k in total profit mark before the end of the year.

Happy with the amount of volume I put in this month.

Another high point was that I had the opportunity to write an article for which was really cool.

You can read that article here.

Not much else to add really my betting/trading has become pretty rigid and boring nowadays but thats probably a positive.

Listened to a few interviews with Harry Findlay this month.

Thought it was interesting as he talks a lot about getting a “buzz” from betting still.

I’ll will be honest that something that i don’t get at all anymore.

Compared to when I started and every bet seemed to really matter.

Lets see what March brings, how has your betting been going on in 2020?
