How To Make Money Trading Late Goals In Football Matches

I recently introduced a new strategy to the football trading membership program which targets goals in the last 15 minutes of matches.

The strategy which I refer to as L15 has performed very well so far and looks like it will be a profitable addition to our portfolio of strategies over time.

The question is, why target late goals when football trading, and how can you make consistent profits doing so?

How To Profit From ‘Scenarios’ When Football Trading

Football trading is tough. Many people rely on pre-match stats too much and are then disappointed only to see the majority of matches not play out as they expected.

One way to trade football matches in-play is to focus on what I call ‘trading scenarios’.

So what are trading scenarios? Let’s have a look.

Are These The Best Goal Signals For In-Play Football Trading?

I’ve been football trading for a long time and one thing I know for sure is that it can be difficult to know exactly when a goal is going to be scored.

If you are trading the overs markets, you ideally want to know when the goal is coming so you can enter your trades at the optimum time and get the best price on offer.

Likewise, if you are trading the unders and a game is getting ‘hot’, you’ll want to jump ship and get out of your trade before a goal goes in.

Below I offer a few ideas and suggestions on different ways you can work out whether the net is about to bulge or not.

Is This The Optimum Minute To Enter An O2.5/BTTS Trade?

Since August, I’ve traded 395 matches as a part of my 5K Challenge.

If you don’t know, my aim is to turn a £500 bank into £5,000 using the O2.5 and BTTS markets.

With the winter leagues now done and dusted for the next few months, I thought it would be a good time to review my trades since August and see if I can gain any kind of insight.

Before I speak about all of the different stats and the conclusions I’ve come to, I first wanted to mention the main one which I really wanted to get a greater insight on.

How Do You Define Value In Football Trading?

In a recent interview, cult football trading expert ‘Psychoff‘ was quoted as saying something along the lines of:-

“Value can’t be defined. Value is a feeling.”

This statement really resonates with me, as I believe that many traders put too much emphasis on stats and not enough emphasis on our feelings and intuition.

SH LTD – The Golden Ticket?

Over the past year or so (yes, that long), I’ve been testing another lay the draw system that you may have previously seen me refer to on the website as ‘LTD3’.

During this time I traded 116 selections and had a win rate of 85.34% (99 wins).

When testing I was trading the selections similar to the LTD2 system in that I would trade out when one team took a two goal lead. However, if the game went beyond 65’, I would let it run and come out when the next goal was scored for a profit or the game ended goalless, which would result in a loss of around 2.5 pts.

When Should You Exit A Lay The Draw Football Trade?

This is something many new football traders have trouble with.

The most important point for me is to be consistent.

Some of us are more cautious than others. Some like a greater degree of risk where others prefer less. Either way is fine, but you must be consistent.
