It has been all Wimbledon this week dominating the sports betting markets.
Have you been able to follow some of the matches and employ my ‘wait for a strong favourite to make a complete pig’s ear out of the early part of the match and then back him or her at higher odds’ strategy?
Here’s an example of the above strategy (which I think I’ll shorten to the ‘pig’s ear strategy’).
Above is the results page for yesterday. I have highlighted three matches. Dominic Thiem loses the first set, then wins the next three.
Milos Raonic and Radwanska both lose their first sets and struggle in a tie-breaker in their second sets.
That’s how you back a 1.25 shot at odds of 1.8 (Dominic Thiem after losing the first set).
And here are Radwanska’s odds:
That’s how you back an odds-on favourite at 4.00 decimal odds.
You can use this strategy to create value bets on players expected to win, or you can tennis trade.
I am working on a tennis trading book which shows you how you can find these kinds of opportunities on an on-going basis, and how to research matches to ensure you are with in-form players.
I tell you, I need these profits. I am on a diet of strawberries and cream, Pimms and barley water for two weeks and it’s an expensive habit!
