Goals Betting – A Little Idea From An Unusual Source…

Lay Back & Get Rich

If there’s one thing I love about betting, it’s the ease with which you can experiment.

I test other people’s systems all the time — it’s kind of the point of the site! — but, like everyone else probably, I always like to think I could do as well if I applied myself. 🙂

So: there’s an idea that’s been playing around in my mind forever. That I never quite got round to trying out before.

I’ve no idea if it will work of course.

But I’m intrigued as it came from a very odd source.

In fact, possibly the single most unlikely source you could imagine.

Someone from Betfair rang me up and suggested it!

The point of the call was, ostensibly, a standard customer service affair.

Would I mind giving ten minutes of my time to give my views in response to a questionnaire? And did I like the new Betfair interface? (Well, it was new then).

I didn’t know Betfair did this.

I’d not had a call like it beforehand and I’ve never had one from them since.

And frankly, for the first few minutes, I found it all a bit wooden and awkward.

But then it happened.

The guy on the phone got to the end of his spiel and started ‘freewheeling’. Asking what I was betting on these days, that kind of thing.

I wondered for a bit if he’d been reading the website but he didn’t mention it.

Anyway, I couldn’t help myself. So I asked him…

“Are staff at Betfair allowed to place their own bets?”.

And, somewhat to my surprise, he said yes, they could. And, in response to my inevitable follow-up, yes, he did.

And he was making a lot of money with his own little system.

Seriously, it would have been rude not to.

So I asked him… would he tell me about it?

And, little by little, he did.

What he went on to describe was the world’s simplest trading system.

In a sentence: the idea is to find football teams that meet certain criteria (which I won’t go into at the moment) then trade the Over 4.5 Goals market.

So I’m going to give it a go.

How could I not!?

I’ll do ten trades to start with, assuming I can find teams that match his criteria.

And I’ll start tonight… with Swansea City v Stoke City.

I’ve just layed Over 4.5 Goals for odds of 8 with the grand sum of £2. Meaning I have a liability of precisely £14.

I will aim to make 30% on average per trade.

And I’ll record my results as comments below this article.

Let’s see if my Betfair guy was really on to something… 🙂
