• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting


    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

First Half Goal @ 2.0

pete

Picking out games and then backing them on betfair in the "first half over 0.5" market. Price must reach 2.0 for the bet to match.
The bet will not be matched if there is a goal early, but generally about 20 mins in we will get our odds
Will report back at the end of each day and keep a profit/loss.

…. nice to see another genuine effort. How did you arrive at the selections? Filters, fancy or other? Refreshing to see some football coming out! ;)

Just working off basic stats of first half goals scored in prevous games / meetings , league they are playing in etc ..

First day was poor :

two wins, four losses and 5 games "not matched" (goal before odds were available)

This may not work and it may morph into something else, the odds may get tweaked, will see where it goes.

well, the first few games that I was able to play today had a goal too early .. so my stakes were returned.

The over 1.5 was interesting again.

23 selections - 28.96 returned for a profit on the day of 5.96pts,
a two day profit would have been 8.21 on the selections.

Thanks that make you go hmnn.

Little bit more profit, have just noticed that the odds displayed on results page are the "final odds" at kick-off so are slightly different than those posted the night beore, but generally its only a couple of pips either way so am keeping it this way so its easier for me to work out profit/loss. You can normally get a little extra on betfair than is shown on odds portal site.

Outlay - 6 points
Return - 7.59
Profit 1.59 points.

overall - 4 days.

59 bets 25 won - 10.07 profit.
It still feels wrong to me, I don't think it makes long term profit as-is.
I'd be happy to be proven wrong.
 
I played a few of these matches yesterday on the BF exchange. To get the best price for the straight O1.5 you need to bet just before the off as a lot of these matches have very little liquidity. Betting under a book percentage of 102% is desirable.
If you dared to wait a couple of minutes into the play the odds seemed to move a fair bit higher, as much as +0.25 in some cases. Leaving it any later you, of course, risk a goal.
Betting football is such a tight margin affair to eke a profit from. Good luck.
