## 6 Sports Trading and Betting Basics Explained

I’m going to share with you some of the basic terms and approaches for successful sports betting and trading

1) Fixed Odds betting – This is the most common form of betting.

Fixed odds relate to the fact the odds don’t change once you’ve placed your bet.

This is different from in-play trading or betting as the odds will move to reflect the performance, score, money in the market and other factors that could influence the odds.

2) A selection – this is simple, it’s just the bet or trade you placed on the specific market. For example, Chelsea to win is a selection, as is Chelsea to win 2-0 in the correct score market.

3) The stake – this is the amount of money you are prepared to wager on the selection. This should be a considered amount based on your overall betting bank, the odds and how confident you are in your selection.

4) Odds or SP – odds and SP, or starting price are the odds set by the bookmakers as a reflection of probability of an event happening or not happening depending on your selection.

Depending on your country and or your preference odds will be expressed as fractions, decimals or moneyline. I personally prefer decimals as it’s the simplest way to do the math. For example odds of 2.5 means you will get back 2.5 times your stake including your stake, in other words, 1.5 times your stake as profit.

5) Types of wagers; there are many different ways that bookmakers will offer in various markets and events. The most common ones being; overs and under, acca’s, and point spread or handicap. Overs and under markets mean you bet or trade on an event being over or under a certain number such as goals scored being over 1.5 is betting that more than 2 goals will be scored in a game, Similarly, you can have under 1.5, if you expect less than 2 goals to be scored.

6) Acca’s – accumulators; where you pick multiple selections to make up one bet with a single stake, so a 4-fold would be 4 selections with one stake bet and the odds would multiply up by all 4 odds assuming your overall acca is a success. And a point spread or handicap is where the market has a range (point spread) or one player or team has a handicap, usually in the form of goals or points (as in tennis).

These are much more like gambling as you are reliant as much on luck as you are on your own research and due diligence.

There you are, some basic terms of sports betting and trading explained.

## The Other 4 Sports Betting Tips That Matter in 2020

Tip 1 – Make sure your acca’s stake up. An accumulator bet of 4 or more games / matches increases the likelihood of a loss. If you have a 4-fold, that means you have to right over all 4 events. Make sure there’s value in all of the selections and that the probability of success is stacked in your favour.

Tip 2 – Look long term, have a long term game plan. Your strategy and staking plan should be set up to give you a long term sustainable betting plan. Be professional about your sports trading and betting, be serious even when you are starting with a small betting bank. Slow and steady will win the race don’t let impatience and emotion get the best of you.

Tip 3 – Have a sensible bank roll and manage your money. The number 1 golden rule, never bet with money you can’t afford to lose. I’d say never load your betting bank with money you can’t afford to lose. Treat your betting bank like a bank account. Every bet is a debit, make sure, as best you can that the debit investment shows a credit return.

Tip 4 – Don’t get suckered in to the unusual or interesting bet markets. Stick with what you know. Look for value and the probability of your result coming through.

## 10 Tips for Betting on Greyhound Racing in 2019 (Part 1)

I’ve been asked for broader guidelines for betting on greyhounds. Now, as you know the two trap greyhound system works a system, a very successful system, and uses as part of it’s system a recovery plan and the rules of probability. As such the two trap greyhound system isn’t gambling, it’s sports trading – so long as you follow the system exactly.

I do realise that some of our members like to know the background to the sports covered, so here’s some of the main tips you should (would) consider if you were to bet on greyhounds and had the luxury (and patience) to do the research….

These are the top tips when betting on greyhound betting (the two trap greyhound system criteria excepted) in 2019

Watch out for the next 5 tips on my Part 2 video of this.

## Betting Against The Favourites | and update on the membership site

Transcript below

Hi, well, sorry for all of the two trap greyhound members who are desperate to get back onto the membership site. As you know, we’ve had some technical problems. We’ve had some quite major technical problems to be honest, and we’ve had issues with the payment method. So what we’ve decided to do is basically Go Back to Basics and we’re rebuilding the whole of the site and we’re looking for engaging with a new payment processing method.

But in the meantime we’re still continuing to broadcast and we’re still allowing you access through to the MBT Sports calculator. So you should be able to still be able to use the two trap Greyhound system ebook and still be able to use the calculator so that you can progress with your daily Sports trades if you so wish.

So just so I quickly make this short video and cover some of the recent comments that we’ve received through the Facebook group of the new people who have decided to join the Facebook group.

So let me just give you a couple of their comments. So one of the questions that we ask is what’s your biggest hurdle when your sports trading so recently one of the guys said it’s “betting against the favorite”.

Well as you know, with the two trap greyhound system. We don’t really take any notice of whether or not the greyhounds that  are running are favorites or not because we’re not really worried about what Greyhounds are in which traps, the system works entirely on the probability of the traps winning. So, You are almost invariably going to be betting against the favorites.

So you don’t really need to worry about the two trap ground system betting against the favorites because the whole of the system works in a way that ensures that you’ll be profitable regardless of whether or not you’re betting against the favorite.

Another question or another comment that we had in regards to that question. What’s your biggest hurdle? Was the the comment around the fact that they didn’t feel that they had enough time to trade as well as keep doing a day job. I have to admit I don’t get the opportunity to do it as much as I used to because I’m quite busy with other things, but when I get the opportunity to spend an hour or so.

Then I will take that time and I’ll sit in front of my computer go and have a look at which of the relevant racetracks offer the best probabilities for a two trap ground system win, and I’ll go and trade for half an hour or so because generally that’s as long as it takes.

So I’m going to close on one last response to the question.

What’s your biggest hurdle when Sports trading? And that response was they were looking for Reliable tips. Now what I can say about that is there’s no 100% [00:03:00] certainty. No 100% guarantee tipping service anywhere.

There’s no 100% certainty that a sports trading strategy is going to win every time even the two trap greyhound system doesn’t mean every time we do have days where we experience a loss as you know, that that’s part and parcel of the whole strategy. In fact, we insist that you hold a stop loss both in terms of your betting bank and also in the number of races that you want to run so that you don’t wipe out, or potentially have the risk of wiping out the entire of your betting Bank despite that some people seem destined to still make that same mistake.

But having said that these days are few and far between and generally speaking. There are certain certainty. There are certain winners every day within the two trap greyhound system across the world particularly in the UK the US and Australia, so, It’s in regards to getting tips.

I don’t think the two trap greyhound system is can be bettered in terms of providing consistent High returns in term, in terms of the percentage of winning tips. Most winning tip services will tell you that they’ll go for 55, 60 percent strike rate. Well, I’ve done research through the two trap greyhound system and I’ve been running the system for myself for a number of years now.

The last three years. I’ve been running it as a part of the two trap greyhound system ebook since I first published the first edition, I would say we’re up in the 80s. If not up to 90, 90 percent strike rate depending on which way you cut the results.

So in terms of a tipping service, I think the two trap greyhound system is probably the best tipping service for Greyhounds that’s available out there today.

So I hope you found this [00:05:00] interesting. If you want to get in touch with me, then leave a message on the Facebook group, and I’ll get back to you. We’re still working on the page on the website. I’m hoping it’ll be back up and running in the very near future. So till then keep on Sports trading and Happy Trading.

## Some dog racing bets explained

When I first started researching the Two Trap Greyhound System and paper trading the system, I only ever looked at the win bet, the first past the post as it were.

As I looked more and more into it and saw the other types of greyhound bets you can trade I realised how alike to horse racing some of them were, whereas others were unique to greyhounds. So here’s just a few of the dog racing bets explained for you.

Watch the video below to know more.

So, those are the main dog racing bets explained. There are a few others, although I am not including them as I don’t really feel they are value bets since they are too complex and you really are gambling when you trade using those bets.

Of course, as with any sports trading, there are standard betting strategies, such as the multipliers and accumulators, as this isn’t ‘dog specific’ I’ll save those for another article.

Until next time… Thanks!

## What’s the best greyhound trap to lay? (2019)

Before we get in to what’s the best greyhound trap to lay, let’s just give a simple explanation of what a ‘lay’ bet is.

Laying is essentially the opposite to backing a selection. Think of it as taking on the part of the bookmaker, essentially instead of backing a selection to win – you are laying it (betting) to lose. If you think about it, that’s how bookmakers make their profit. Whereas you may only be able to lay one selection in a particular event, a bookmaker will lay all the selections in the event.

With the formation of the internet, this has lead to the development of the betting exchanges, where it’s now possible to either trade as a traditional ‘back’ bet or to bet against a result by laying the selection.

The betting exchanges give you the option of either backing something to win or laying something to lose, simples.

As with pretty much any event that punters can gamble on, there are always going to be people who are willing to back just about anything. This is no different for greyhound races either.

In greyhound racing the betting market is often very tight, which means it’s rare for there to be a large spread of odds between the 6 (or 8) racing traps.

So, what’s the answer to the question; “what’s the best greyhound trap to lay” ? Many of you reading this will already have an idea of the answer to this question.

As you no doubt have heard me say before, in any sports event where animals and humans play significant roles – which is evey sport except the virtual sports on the online bookmakers, there’s always an unknown element which, even with the best trading models on earth, you cannot allow for human or animal error.

So how can we determine what’s the best greyhound trap to lay?

Well I wouldn’t recommend simply laying every greyhound in the same race. As you know, if you are using the two trap greyhound system already or following results as you paper trade, quite often non-favourites will win a race, and this can be with some quite long odds, even over and above 12.0, that means you could lose all your bank on your first trade as you have to cover the liability of 11 times the stake!

That’s not to say that greyhounds don’t make for some good laying opportunities. You just have to have a system that gives you the edge.

So, how about using THE TWO TRAP GREYHOUND SYSTEM?

‘Come again’ I hear some of you say, ‘how can the two trap greyhound system support a lay system for greyhound racing?’

Now, for some of you who have been with the THE TWO TRAP GREYHOUND SYSTEM family for some time will have probably figured it out. But bear with me for now.

So THE TWO TRAP GREYHOUND SYSTEM is based on the law of probability and a controlled recovery system, that when followed exactly as detailed in the two trap greyhound system ebook, can help to identify which two traps have the HIGHEST probability of winning at the racetrack under review.

How will you be able to identify what’s the best greyhound trap to lay using the two trap greyhound system? You simply reverse engineer the process, using the principles of the two trap greyhound system you look for the reverse results of the two trap greyhound system to identify which trap is the worst performing.

When you have done so, this will give you the traps with the highest probability of NOT winning the race, even when the greyhound in the race has been selected as a favourite.

You will need to do your own recovery system in order to protect yourself from potential losses.

That’s great right? Well almost, but what if you could go down a little deeper with your analysis?

Here’s a working example:

Let’s say the two trap greyhound system in reverse, as it were, had identified Trap 4 as the most probable trap to lose at, say, Hove. Now your general analysis indicates that Trap 4 loses about 42% of all races over a 3 year period. 42% is still a big risk right?

So what more can we do to find the best greyhound trap to lay? How about we look at the time range? So let’s say we identify that for every dog that was drawn from Trap 4, that was running before 14.00hrs, there was a very high number of losers. This is actually true for some Traps at certain racecards.

In fact, if you can identify the right Trap and time window, it’s possible to identify Traps with very low winners, some detailing as low as 4% of winners.

Think of that for a minute, 4% – that means that 96% of all greyhounds selected in the above example that were running before 14.00hrs lost their race! 96% !!

A word of caution here, don’t just go off and run the ‘lay’ system – or any system for that matter until you have paper traded for some time. I haven’t tried this myself (yet) but is that possible the answer to how to identify the best greyhound trap to lay?

Probably….

Until next time… Thanks!

## More Tips for Dog Racing in 2019

As you know The Two Trap Greyhound System doesn’t use any performance greyhound statistics within the system.

No, the Two Trap Greyhound System works on the science of the law of probability and an effective recovery staking plan, in reality though the recovery plan is rarely needed.

That’s why I am always reluctant to offer tips on specific greyhounds and their likelihood of winning. That said though, there are many sites on the internet where tips are freely offered. The problem for me is that I don’t think there’s a clear benefit in determining which greyhound is going to win for EVERY race card at a meeting.

That’s one of the great things about the Two Trap Greyhound System is that the research time for the system so much shorter and simpler.

In fact, when done properly you only need to review the results of the past week’s races to check the system is running as you expect.

So, what kind of tips for dog racing do I have for you?

Stick to using the The Two Trap Greyhound System for your greyhound trading. If you do feel an urge to gamble, you should resist it.

If I am offering any tips for dog racing, then I would suggest you use the following to fine tune your the two trap greyhound system selections:-

First of all, check the weather.

Wet conditions do often favour wide runners, and dogs on the inside could find it heavier going. It can also help to trade on younger greyhounds. Often,  dogs with less than 20 runs will tend to improve over time.

The more settled and older greyhounds may tend to “sit back” later in the race. Also, some trainers dog’s do better at some race tracks than others.

Trainers with a great track record at a certain track can often produce winning dogs time and time again.

Until next time… Thanks!

## How To Always Win Football Bets (2019)

Well now, How To Always Win Football Bets, isn’t that a massive promise?

Yes it is, so I’m not going to make it! No one has ever come up with the perfect 100% guaranteed sports betting or trading system.

Even though I say so myself; THE TWO TRAP GREYHOUND SYSTEM comes pretty close to it. And if you’re a PREMIER member of THE TWO TRAP GREYHOUND SYSTEM website then you’ll see a football strategy that uses the two trap greyhound system as part of it’s core.

Never mind that, you’re here to learn about How To Always Win Football Bets, aren’t you!

As I said earlier, I can’t make that bold promise. What I can do is give you some tips on how to improve your chances of winning your football bets,

Let’s get going then shall we..

This is true whether we are talking football or any other sport, particularly those which don’t lend themselves to a probability system/strategy (unlike the two trap greyhound system).

Research, research, research. You can go into piles and piles of statistics and team form in detail if you want to, in fact many professional sports traders do just that, and they usually specialise on one or two sports and keep very detailed records with analysis on teams and individual so that they can come up with probable winning bets. Since the widespread use of the internet many of the stats are freely available, if you know where to look. It will take you time to research the ins and outs of the matches and teams and players, using online resources, read and take note of the relevant stats and information.

Here’s a ‘gimmee’ for ya;  a site called http://www.whoscored.com is an absolute treasure trove of data with statistics on the best goalscorers, defenders, etc. Using the data available you can use this for the side markets in football (soccer) such as which teams score or concede the most goals before or after half time; with that knowledge you could place a bet on the Half-Time/Full-Time result.

Look for Value

I covered how to calculate value, also known as probability, in my earlier article under the title: Top Tips to make you a tennis betting expert (2019) – go check it out, I can wait…..

Got it? Great! So if you think the probability of the event you’re trading on exceeds that which is indicated by the probability, then you have a good value bet, then it’s up to you to decide if it’s worth betting or not.

Side Markets are where it’s at…

Looking for the markets with the best likely value? Then I always like to look at the side markets, sometime called specials. Here you’ll find an array of markets, from over/under, half time / full time, correct score, to name just a few. It may seem counterintuitive to go for specials, but for me these are the markets that can improve the probability of a win. An example is where you can trade on both teams to score and over 1.5 goals. In these markets quite often you’ll be able to make a better profit (or at least the same) betting on over 1.5 goals as BTTS (both teams to score), you can win if there’s more than 2 goals in the whole agem and it matters not who scores!

Speculate to Accumulate, well kind of….

Accumulators or multi bets are a good way of increasing profit when you are trading on what both you and the online bookmakers believe to be a high probability of success, the downside is that often there’s shorter odds – really short in some instances. So how do you turn a profit with short odds? Accumulators of course, but a word of caution. As you know if you’ve read my previous articles, anything with humans (or animals for that matter) involved has an unpredictable edge to it. So having an 8-match accumulator with teams at 1.25 and below (some as low as 1.01) is destined for tragedy. I can almost guarantee that you would lose an 8-bet accumulator with 8 favourites on short odds. In fact i’m so sure I would end up n the bet that I’d rather you gave me your money now and save you the grief! :-)

No, if you are going to have multi-bets, keep it to trebles or 4-folds, that’s my advice.

There you are I hope this information has proven of value to you. So if you ever discover How To Always Win Football Bets please let me know, as I’d love to be able to share that system and profit from it too.
