Scalping on Betfair?

What is scalping?

Scalping is short term trading. It is a form of sports arbitrage betting. A scalping trader looks to make lots of small profits, which in time add up. Scalping relies on lots of active participants in the market. Scalping on Betfair on UK horse racing is the best place for this type of sports arbitrage betting.

This is because you have lots of liquidity in these markets, in particular just before the start of the race, because you get a surge of money coming into the market.

The concept is simple, if you back a price you must lay at a higher price, or, if you lay a price you must back a lower price to make a profit. Whatever happens your profit is guaranteed and is equal to the difference or spread between the back and lay price. The Betfair betting exchange is an ideal place to trade in this way.

In this article we’ll look at the basics of scalping on Betfair and how to scalp, full artical can be found by going to Scalping On Betfair

Massive gamble paid off for Jadwiz Racing on Friday 06/11/2009 when Shaka’s Pearl whose early advertised odds of 20/1 with Bet Fred obliged in the 2-40 at Fontwell.

Early odds with Bet Fred were quickly aligned with other bookmakers at around 14/1, but this did not stop the gamble and by the time of the race it had been backed all the way down to 6/1.

It duly obliged and romped home by 17 lengths, now winners and gambles like this don’t come every day but, with Jadwiz Racing you can be sure where always on the lookout for the next value horse.

This is what we said

Not seen out for a very long time but would look have a good chance on the form of a few years back. Both trainer and jockey look to be hitting some form and the fact that its come back to racing now suggests it can still win.

It may need a run but with large odds on offer is worth taking a chance on, current early price is 20/1 with Bet Fred.
