A very good evenings trading was had yesterday and all that
I had set up more or less fell into place. In the first
game of the day Fenerbahce took the lead on the 21st minute and at
that stage I had only one quarter of my stake matched but nonetheless cashed
out for small profit. A normal punter may have decided to stick with it and
wait for a second goal but as a trader the opportunity was there to close out
and that’s what I did and the game ended 1-0. Moving onto the Championship selections
and from the four selected I traded in all except Hull v Rotherham. The only
reason I didn’t get involved in that was due to Hull taking an early 2-0 lead.
In the others it was plain sailing with a 60th minute correct score lay
in Birmingham v Bolton and the away team surprised with a goal on the 71st
minute. I had mentioned in my post that I would lay Bolton if they took the
lead up to the 70th minute and as I stated on Twitter was not doing
so given that was outside of my rules. This was a good decision as the game
finished 0-1. Also on Twitter I advised a lay of Nottingham Forest at half time
as they were 1-0 up and my reasoning was due to the dominance of West Brom who
controlled 63% of possession in the first half. We didn’t have to wait too long
as the equaliser came on the 54th minute and I traded out for a good
return. The final trade of the night was a lay of QPR who took the lead just on
the half time mark. Bristol City took over in the second half and it never
looked like QPR were going to take the 3 points with the home team eventually
equalising on the 73rd minute and eventually scored again in the 93rd.
All in all it was a great evening and let’s hope that rolls into today’s
Switzerland Super league
Luzern v Sion
Backing Over 2.5 Goals on this but will wait for the first
15-20 minutes to see if there’s much action before doing so. Ideally I’d like
to be getting on when the odds pass 2 which will probably take those 20 minutes
anyway. The criteria for me will be to see what happens in the first half and
cash out regardless of there being goals or not at half time.
France Ligue 1
St Etienne v Strasbourg
Backing Over 0.5 Goals in the Half Time market and will drip
my stake from 1.8 up to 2.7
Preston North End v Norwich
14th versus 1st and I’ll be on the lookout
for Preston to take the lead any time before the 70th minute. Should
that happen I will lay them.
Leeds v Swansea
Over 1.5 Goals looks strong in this game but the odds are
too low to get involved pre kick off. I’ll keep a watch on this and see how the
game starts but the two options may be to either drip back the Over 1.5 if the
price goes above 1.6 before any goal is scored or lay the correct score from
around the 55-60 minute time period.
Sheffield United v Middlesbrough
Laying the draw here but only if the odds reach 3 before any
goal is scored. The wait will allow me also to monitor how the game is flowing.
That’s the lot for today. I will monitor both Champions
League games in-play and if anything jumps out as an opportunity I will tweet
it. Have a great day.
