The Morning

We will be showing you how to analyse sports trading markets, assess your own price and then compare that to the current market price to obtain a value bet or a potential trading opportunity.

We will also look extensively at the racing markets to show you how to identify entry and exit points, the high and low markers called resistance points, and how to make smart trading decisions based on those indictors. We will look at scalping, swing trading, hedging, pre race, in play, and backing and laying with a view to trading out.

I will show you how to use the BetTrader software and why you must use it to succeed on the markets.

The Afternoon

During the afternoon racing, we will trade a dozen or so races live, both pre race and in play and show you how the software works and the best way to use it. I will show you the tools that are available in the software and how and when to use them.

We will show you how we analyse an upcoming event and we will look at the stats and form an opinion on that match. We can then look at the exchange prices compared to our opinion and see if we can obtain value (a crucial factor when betting).

We will also have a drink after the course, a good time to let everybody swap emails.

Course Material & Bonus

All attendees will receive the full course presentation and have access to ongoing support on your trading Journey. Lunch is provided as well as morning and afternoon refreshments.
