Professional Gambling

I’ve made quite a lot of money betting recently compared with that I used to make just trading and when making fewer bets even though the stakes were bigger. This is down to 3 main reasons:

1) I now stake the same amount on every bet or entry trade.

2) This stake is a sensible % of my available funds.

3) I now price up markets and because of  2 I am not scared to put my money on higher priced selections that I think are value.

But because I have been trying to get the bets prices I have had my money scattered around in various bookmakers accounts and it’s been difficult to keep track of my overall ROI and moving funds has been a pain in the youknowhat. So I have decided to bet only with Betfair for a while just to see how well I’m now able to do and that if I was to scale up just how well could I do as a professional gambler and had more available funds at my disposal.

I aim to bring together a lot of the stuff I have mentioned on this blog, so things like:

1) Fixed staking to a sensible % of bank (be able to bet at least 50 times over).

2) Getting the best price (This will now involve unmatched bets sometimes if I feel the chances of getting matched will be good).

3) Getting on favs early before the price plummets and leave betting on massive underdogs until late on.

4) Making several inplay bets and letting more of them run, only trading out when I feel the result is of such a low or unknown expectancy that it would be better value to trade out.

5) Pricing up markets and working out the available odds to a % to see if there is value.

6) Using reputable free tipsters who have a proven track record.

7) Increasing turnover as much as possible and placing all  bets that I believe have a positive expectancy.

I now feel I am armed with enough knowledge and resources and bringing it all together to see what sort of ROI is possible weekly, monthly and yearly for a manual gambler such as myself will be very interesting. I want my inplay betting to be at a minimum and most of my bets will be done from my phone when I think a price is too good not to take on and watching a few tennis matches. I don’t want to give up on inplay betting just yet because I feel it’s more profitable but again I will do a comparison of pre-match and inplay in my analysis. I actually started this yesterday so will post a weekly summary next week. I will only be using tiny stakes because I’m hoping to increase turnover considerably and don’t want to risk much on this. It’s the ROI that I’m concerned with in this experiment as it will enable to see just what is possible.

My prem selections have formed a chunk of the profits I have made recently and I will be sad to see these end but luckily I’m also a high-profile international football specialist too so roll on the Euros! If anyone is able to recommend any free tipsters that you think I might not be aware of then please post a comment and let me know!

So here are my final value prem selections of the season. You can see how I have priced them up percentage wise in the sheet: https://www.bettingtools.co.uk/premier-League-bets-2011-12.xlsx Hopefully we can stay above 20% ROI for the season. I think this would be an incredible achievement and hopefully some of you have been following these and made some good profit. All being well I should find time to post these again next season.
