Sports Betting


I want this blog to take shape in a couple of forms, one being the currency trading and the other sports betting, I have been attracted to betting ever since I was 16. I spent all of my teenage years and well into my twenties playing golf and would say it’s the sport I know most about in terms of characteristics and the challenges it serves. I cannot ┬ásay for certain but I think there is an edge to be found in the golf betting market/s on Betfair. I want these posts to serve as almost a record as to whether my instinct is right or purely remembering the wins and forgetting the losses (isn’t that handy?!)

I might dedicate a small bank of $1,000 and trade in $5 bets and see how it goes over the period of 6-12 months. I believe my edge lies in the in-running markets and what I perceive to be value or no value on the odds available. This week is the last major of the year, the US PGA Championship, at Baltusrol. The field looks like this before play:

I don’t have any strong opinion either way before play and the majority of the bets I’ll be doing will be during the 3rd and 4th rounds. I’ll get round to a trading post next time round. Any golfers out there??
