sports trading

hi all
im fairly new here and it occured to me that there seem to be no threads on here to do with sports trading.
apologies for my ignorance if there are, perhaps someone can point me in the right direction.
my questions are to those that successfully trade the sports markets and/or have previous experience of it good/bad.
im looking for strategies in all sports, whether you prefer scalping or long term trades.
in fact just to speak to another sports trader like myself would be great....

Re: sports trading

In my opinion as a sports trader, I would tend to prefer longer term trades. I might lay a draw pre-match and go in play with a general direction of how I expect the odds to be moving in-play. Scalping is possible, but it mainly focus on trend following which can be misleading at times and manipulated.

hi,
my first post and its not even about financial trading!
would expect it deserves a site on its own being such a fast growing area. if its other traders you want to meet then would suggest going to sports trading apps sites as they have general forums (not just about s'ware but sports trading in general, strats etc) e.g.

http://www.betangel.com/forum/
http://www.geekstoy.com/forum/

as well as some traders setting up their own...
http://www.blog.tradesharktennis.com/forum/

in addition theres the main betting site forums e.g. betfair, plus a million bloggers (99.9% of which are twaddle), simple google search will get you there.

According to me, i agree with you, i also share such thoughts, but of course all people are different.

I dabble a bit. It's handy having access to ladders while only having £2 bets.
