In the sports trade you can make your bets too, but this bet is made through operations.
This means that, like the punters, he performs his entry with the focus on winning it, of course, but he can enter and leave the market several times, staying in the market only in the moments in which he bets that the goal will come out.
Therefore, you will see in the market trader who bets and trader who acts in the market without even looking at the event that is happening.
What are the main strategies in sports trading?
Back to the favourite
This is a very interesting technique and most people use it only in the first half.
The idea is to make an entry in favor of the favorite, when he is performing well and the market as a whole believes in him.
For you to be successful here in the long run, it is essential to define your own criteria of a favourite team.
I say this because, even if it is very famous, the criteria are different according to the trader who works with it.
Swing trade is a way for you to act inside the goal market, where it is possible to take advantage of the oscillations that the market offers.
This is also a great strategy but generally worked better before than nowadays.
These days, traders are more aggressive in the market and many of them are paying for several moves in a match.
This makes the market move very fast, making it difficult to enter in favour of the move.
There are also dead balls, hated by many, loved by others.
The dead ball technique consists on entering in favour of a team or in the goal market, every time a dangerous foul happens.
Dangerous fouls can be classified in two ways:
- Balls that will be thrown in the area;
- 10/10 foul, the one that happens on the half moon of the penalty area.
Another set piece we know a lot about are the corners.
Small teams tend to train set pieces a lot, because they tend to fight for a ball in the game and many of their goals come from set pieces.
The idea is that you get in the set piece and get out as quickly as possible, as the market will move and you tend to lose a bit of money if you don’t score.
