Winners, roll up…
The laws of maths say that not every bet will win – far from it in fact – but over time, based on a tried-and-trusted formula that’s forged significant profits for many years, there will only be one winner in the battle between us and bookie – us!
I’ve been in the game for as long as I can remember. Growing up, my best friend’s father was a bookmaker, and many long days were spent watching the racing and football in his company. I went on to complete a Masters degree in the Sociology of Sport, my main work focusing on the history of gambling in the UK; from there I secured a job as a broker for the bespoke Mayfair bookmaker Fitzdares; and the rest is history.
I went on to become Fitzdares’s head of football trading – pricing and managing all football markets and dealing with thousands of pounds worth of football bets daily, while also aggressively prop-trading football for the company, making the firm significant profits every year.
I then moved to football stats company Squawka to help run their sportsbook, before deciding that betting professionally was what I really wanted to focus on. I’ve been pro-punting for nearly four years now, making a six-figure betting profit in each of them.
In terms of the bets themselves, they are mainly on high-level matches, so getting the bets on isn’t much of a problem, and they vary in price range, between odds-on and big odds-against. Never be put off by short prices! There can be as much value in a selection at 1/2 as in one at 20/1. Longer-term, ante-post selections have been particularly profitable over the years and there will also be a sports spread bet every couple of weeks.
With staking, the advice is to decide how much you want your 1pt bet to be and to then stick to the recommended bets as you go. The key to successful gambling is discipline and mentality, waiting for the right bets, and staking correctly. I’m also always available to answer any questions that you may have.
Best of all, it’s great fun! So join the party and see how we go.
