Trading In-Play markets that can be profitable
Welcome back, last time I shared with you the concept of in-play trading and the types of markets to avoid (the speculative, chance markets; e.g. next corner, next yellow card etc).
As promised, here’s a list of in-play markets you can consider where there’s definitely the probability of winning trades.
I will say though, that you must be able to follow the game in real time, preferably on TV or a live webcast, so that you can get an indication of how the teams or players are performing on the day. You’ll recall from previous newsletters that favourites don’t always win and the many reasons why that is.
Okay, without further delay, here’s the list of Trading In-Play markets that can be profitable
Laying the draw; Look for games that are level in the second half and then look to lay the draw with the game in-play. Using this strategy you would lower the potential risk level as the draw odds are lower and take a higher profit if a goal is scored.
Lay the correct score; here we are looking to bet that there will be at least one more goal in the game. Trading in-play in this market will often allow you to find good opportunities at better than (ie lower, when laying) pre-match odds.
The more selective, or niche, markets can provide great value as they are often overlooked. The corner markets are a favourite for quite a few profitable tipsters that I have seen.
Then there are the over/under goals markets, the first half goal markets, total goals, next goal, Asian handicap markets.
With these markets it’s important to be able to assess the game in-play by TV or radio broadcast, so that you get an idea of how the game is going; does the referee allow play to flow, is one team more superior in it’s play than the other, is there momentum for one side over the other, does any player in a crucial position (forward or goalkeeper for example) look confident or nervous?
All these factors can help to identify whether or not these niche markets have a valuable opportunity to trade in-play.
I hope this has proven useful for you, until next time, happy trading.
