Betfair Correct Score Football Trading
A lot of those who trade on Betfair trade the horse racing markets, however in recent years a new breed of trader has emerged that focus purely on the correct score market. I am writing this article assuming you already have some knowledge of trading on Betfair, if you don’t you should really read up on it before reading further.
Correct Score trading is a little bit different from usual trading where you can watch the weight of money or trends to base your decision on. The odds movements are caused by goals, or in some cases having no goals. When a goal goes in you can see some enormous swings in the odds which leaves plenty of space for some huge profits to be made by backing and then laying a certain score.
A common strategy a lot of itcscore traders use is to pick a scoreline such as 2-1 to the favourite. Reason being that when a goal goes in the odds on the 2-1 scoreline drop, no matter who scores the goal. For example, the odds on 2-1 may start the match at decimal odds of 10. If the favourite scores the opening goal the odds on 2-1 can drop to around 8, however if the underdog scores the first goal the odds can drop to 6 in some cases! That’s a pretty big swing!
No strategy is ever foolproof, as if the match has no goals you won’t make any money! So match selection is as crucial as ever.
Also, make sure you have a good Betfair Trading Software application running. Once those odds move the trading software will do all the calculations you need to lock in the maximum profit and this can be done within a click of the mouse. This will save a lot of time and sweat rushing to enter a stake just to see the odds move again and again while the match is live!
One thing to remember when trading the Correct Score on football matches is that there is very rarely one strategy to fit all matches. Almost every football match is unique in its own way so its best to try and develop your own strategies to suit this.
