It's all about greed and fear as always ..........you play off people's irrational nature during the cut and thrust of live events ........people
Generally will always overreact to events........so trade off it ....as ff is doing well !!!

Liquidity is not a problem. But it is limited, thats why you can't compound you stakes and make millions. A good trader can make £1,000 or so a week (remember the markets are open 7 days with weekends being the biggest days), Is has decreased slightly since Betfair opened its sports book. But the main liquidity providers are the high-street bookmakers who use betfair to lay off their exposure and balance their books.

But you need to stick to the main sports, Horse Racing, Football, Tennis and Cricket Rugby and NFL.

ffsear started this thread Couple of trades for a £10.50 green book on the cricket. Trading at £1 per tick.

Most professional sports traders focus on the cricket, and you can see why! over £20mil matched and still 17 overs to play. Plenty of liquidity, and this is just a T20 game. The test matches do much more.
