The Clint Soccer Trading Strategy on Betfair
In this football trading strategy we are looking for a strong home favorite where Over 2.5 goals is 1.90 or more (2s to 2.10 is ideal) and Under 1.5 goals is 3.6 or more. We are also looking for games with recent head-to-head and current form showing goals and/or 1-1s.
We place the bets just before KO although it may be necessary to wait until the game is inplay. This strategy is very similar to the ‘Aristotle’ strategy which uses a £25 stake for a 20 to 80% return if all goes well.
How it`s played:
A variation on CoverS. Back Over 2.5 + back 1-1, (sometimes split 1-1 and 2-0 to fave 50-50 staking) + Scalp Under 1.5 (or back it for newcomers)
We now back 2-1 and 2-2 OR just 2-2, (with evenly matched sides)
Use: 1st half
Selection criteria: Choose games where you think will be goals with 1-1 as cover. Over 2.5 should be 1.90 min to back. With certain games if you feel 2-0 is a strong possibility split the 1-1 and 2-0 cover., ie £5 and £5 or £10 and £10.
Staking: Back Over 2.5 £35/£70;1-1 £5/£10 (2-0 optional if strong fave involved then split with 1-1, ie £3 on each), 2-1 £5 OR 2-1 £3 and £ on 2-2
Back Under 1.5 for £12/£24
If you can Scalp Under 1.5 and have that covered it leaves you in a very strong position.
