Sports Betting for a living | Key tips revealed in candid Interview
FTS Betslip 9th April Episode No.974 – Grand National Winners and some Footy
When people ask me what I do for a living I’ll often pause for a moment and answer, “I watch sports for a living”
It’s easier to say that than I’m a Betfair trader, or I’m a professional gambler or I bet for a living or something similar. That requires a lot of effort to explain.
Sports betting for a living is unusual and poorly represented, so I’ve often reached out to the media to explain what I and many others do in more detail.
In this video, I talk about the concept of my style of sports betting, Betfair trading in an interview with the BBC. There was no preparation for this interview, I just turned up and was interviewed.
You may have heard some of this before, but it was in need of an update.
I actually did about six interviews over the course of three years and this video is an amalgam of two of those interviews.
It explains exactly what I do for a living and how I do it and the sort of things I am looking for.
If you are a beginner at sports betting or Betfair trading it should give you some insight into what professional betting involves. Especially in the space in which I operate, betting exchanges like Betfair and Betdaq.

If you already are experienced and people think you just ‘gamble’ for a living. Hopefully, this video will explain what you really do and why and that it is actually something that has been viable for a long time.
