Something new to do and having plan B

At tradingfootball.eu we have a number of really great, profitable strategies. What’s even better is we continually endeavour to improve and add to them. Yesterday, was an opportunity for some experimentation.

On figures, goals were to be expected in the Paderborn v Osnabruck game but the end of season lethargy is always a factor and something to be prepared for. Rather than taking the usual route when using the Clint strategy, this author opened in the Over 2.5 market and backed 0-0 for enough to cover the Over 2.5 stake, plus a little more. As is the case with a lot of Bundesliga 2 games, there was much action in the middle of the park but little in the way of finishing quality, there had been only 3 shots on target at the 30 minute point. My Over 2.5 goals was looking unlikely. As planned, the Over 2.5 market was closed at HT for a loss, at 0-0. with focus to be then placed on Correct Score. The green on 0-0 meant  moves across CS could be made safely. Watching the game, it was entirely likely it would finish 1-0 or 0-1, backing both of these with the available green from 0-0 secured my position, meaning scratch on all three. Whilst the stats had built slowly over the game, they had reached a point where laying the draw from 2’s down (SHS) was a good call. Plus, the game gave enough confidence to back 1-0 & 0-1 anyway. The goal came on 79 minutes. Both markets made up a nice green and what had potentially been a red trade became a winner.

Picking and devising trades then having them go the way you want/expected is only half the game. Keeping a cool head and knowing there is always a way out is the other half. Always have a plan B.

Stay green.
