Thanks for your comments last week on the ‘Jeff Stelling’ xG (Expected goals) video.

Given the interest, I thought I would expand it a little to discuss it’s positive and negative points and how you would likely use it if you were trading a football match on Betfair.

When I was young I was a bit cautious and didn’t take many risks. It was a mistake. But I eventually learnt it wasn’t my fault and that, in reality, I had been victim to other peoples motives.

Eventually, I managed to break out of that mode of thinking and way of life and never looked back.

I’ve done so many amazing things and met so many amazing people but none of it would have happened if I hadn’t been prepared to take a bit of risk and open some doors. Betfair trading and Bet Angel wouldn’t have been created if I hadn’t have done this.

That thinking led to understand investment, trading and trading Betfair better. But it has also positively influenced what I do and that’s why I always talk positively. The lesson in the story, don’t let others stifle your creativity and energy.

If they do, walk away from them because you are on the wrong path.

I use the Tick Offset tool in BetTrader set to 4 ticks in play on a Uk jumps race. Using the gaps in the market that appear in play, you can take advantage of the varying speeds of other trades to make a tidy profit. It can be volatile and you can lose so it is not for the faint hearted.

Here is a quick video showing you how to replicate the make market function on the one-click screen but on the ladder, using a servant.

Servant’s allow you to inherit many different characteristics. So you could add a whole load of these conditions and parameters to a Servant like this to allow Bet Angel to dynamically manage the audio.

There seems to be a little audio lag on the video. Not sure where that came from but it doesn’t detract too much from the overall narration.

I did a lot of analysis many years ago on how to price a football match and ended up not just looking at the final result but also shots and the chance of any shot going in.

Expected goals or xG has now been popularised and used in the media and it’s useful to understand exactly what it means and how it is constructed.

I no longer go through the process of doing it myself as there are loads of really good sites out there that collect, analysis and distribute this data.

You may have seen an iceberg order in a Betfair trading market at some point.

In this video, we use a servant to create an iceberg order then scale out the trade.

You may want to check your locks after this video!

I often consider myself a creative problem solver than a risk taker. I essentially looking in the markets for problems, even complex ones, then try to simplify the task to something that is much more achievable.

I’ve been thinking of ways of explaining this but the answer came to me on my regular trip to the gym, where I often have to wait for the bikes to be unlocked.

Despite there being 10,000 possible combinations I was able to solve the combination of the lock without force simply by observing the ‘lock combination market’.

You can do the same when you look at the Betfair trading market.

People accidentally insert biases and this causes them to show their hand, whatever you are looking at. Whether it’s a financial market, a betfair / sports market or a shed full of bikes.

In this video we take things a step further on from the simple process of creating a custom column and put it to use in a Greyhound trading market.

We switch the Servant on and off and see it, in its active, pending and stopped state.

Because we use a servant we can trade several runners at once without having to try and keep track of things and move around the screen. We can just focus on the best selections to trade and let the Servant get on with it.

The custom column feature of Bet Angel is pretty neat on its own. It allows you to create a custom view of the one click with functions that you define. In one click Bet Angel can do many things.

We have now taken that to the next level by allowing you to use a Servantâ„¢ in the custom column as well.

It gives you huge flexibility at the touch of a button. In this video I show you how to set up a servant in the custom column section of Bet Angel.

Here is an interesting trade on horse racing from this week.

I tend to go against the trend, they produce some of the best trades you can do. But for every selection heading in one direction, there is probably something heading in the other. In this case, there were two heading in and that was helping send the favourite out.

You will also see how I hold my position for it to mature. I don’t jump in and out all the time and try and second guess.

As long as the position holds, I’ll hold and that’s often key when betfair trading.

A quick example of using a Servant to spot and execute a trade in a market.

Here I DON’T use the pre-assigned keystrokes for the servant I have defined a set of rules and activate it simply by pressing a button the keyboard.

A quick video showing you how you can use a bet angel servant to scale in and out of a trade in one click.

This is helping when trading on Betfair as it will mean you get a good average entry and exit price. I already do this in other videos but now I can do this with just one click instead of loads.

It’s the time of year when sleep can take a back seat in favour of some quality oversea’s racing.

The Breeders cup in the USA and the Melbourne Cup at Flemington in Australia are huge meetings and with that comes huge liquidity.

I started trading both some years ago but not very successfully but gradually learnt the nuances of each meeting and started trading them quite aggressively and plan to do so this year.

Here is some background to both meetings and a personal account of Del Mar racecourse.

You can call a servant in a number of different ways.

You can use the pre-defined keyboard shortcut in the servant manager, manually activate it via the control tab or use custom columns.

It’s up to you to decide which is the best way to call your servant.

The big new feature in Bet Angel is a ‘Servant’.

What is a Servant, what does it do and why would you use it?

In this video, I give you an overview of exactly what the concept of a servant is and where you are likely to use it.

Trading the first half of a long distance jumps race. I like to trade the first half of the race and avoid the finish as it gets a bit chaotic. Looking for gaps in the prices in running, chipping away four ticks at a time.

One advantage of sports markets on betfair is that you can turnover spectacular amounts with relatively small banks.

Trading on Betfair allows you to ‘leverage’ your stake and bank because of the quantity of markets that are available and the process of instant settlement. This process allows you to recycle your money through the market at high frequency.

Because of this characteristic, even with a tiny bank, you can put many, many, many millions through the market over the course of the year. If you can do that with a positive expectancy of any amount your bank will multiply quite rapidly.

To reach ‘millionaire’ status quite quickly you just have to focus on trading enough markets in the right way. Do that and you will have staked millions.

bet angel has a number of tools available to aid you specifically in the process of trading and managing multi positions in multiple markets.

You must focus on your expectancy first though. There isn’t much point in turning over millions if you can’t do it at break-even or profitably. Never forgot that!

Tomorrow morning (UK time) we will see Winx run in the Cox Plate and despite being 10,500 miles away (at Moonee Valley, Melbourne, Australia), it’s probably a race worth checking out.

It reminds me of the fun and games I had with Black Caviar a few years ago.

If you look at any betting market it will contain information on what chance the market is giving each individual participant of winning the event.

Back in the early days the ‘book’ was slack and there was quite a bit of room for odds to move around. But now the market is very ‘tight’ and any movement in one direction will trigger a movement in the other direction.

In this video we look at the market, at book % and how odds moving in one direction can influence odds in the other direction.

We then look at a football match and use this characteristic to predict where the price of the draw will be given certain movements elsewhere.

While I love trading on Betfair I’ve also picked up a deeper interest in the underlying sports. So here is a video that isn’t specifically about a trading strategy or bet angel, but about the sport itself!

There are a number of racecourses in the UK that were built, constructed or run on public land. Curiously Ascot racecourse surrounds public heath land so the public still have access to the heath.

Several times the heath has come under threat of turning completely private, but for the moment the public still have full access to the heath land, apart from on key race days.

Pure, ‘real’ trading is about getting the balance behind profits and losses and that can be achieved in a number of ways.

In this video we discuss this concept and the way you can be more effective by deciding what to trade and not, but also realising what actually makes a good trade or not.

I was digging through my betfair trading videos this week and saw this one which was interesting because it has two different, but important messages, in it.

The first is to do with establishing a position and the second is to do with exiting in such a way you don’t influence your exit negatively.
