IN the past fifteen years, the betting industry in the UK and Ireland has changed beyond recognition. While technology has made it easier than ever to place a bet, for most people making a profit from sports betting remains as tricky as ever. Yet there are a growing number of traders, some of which have no previous sports betting experience, making handsome profits from exchanges like Betfair and Betdaq. In Sports Trading on Betfair, sports trader Wayne Bailey explains the dynamics of odds movement, how prices move and why - and more importantly, describes in detail the systems and strategies he uses on a daily basis to profit from the betting exchanges. With a background in both financial trading and sports betting, Bailey explains how we can merge those two disciplines to understand the market and find ways to finally beat the books. Bailey focuses largely on horseracing but the principles and strategies described within this book can be applied to most sports. Topics include weight of movement, swing trading, scalping, betting in-running, financial spread-trading, Dutching, support and resistance, arbitrage, trading psychology and creating your own trading plan.
