My Spread Bets

Postby honey1204 » Mon Apr 18, 2016 3:05 pm

I love spread betting and find it by far the most exciting way to bet. You cant replicate that thrill of the spread being covered and then just making making more and more money every time a goal is scored or a corner is awarded.

My biggest earner and my most favourable spread bet is the corners market (match & team) and other favourites include total goal minutes (TGM) player goal minutes (PGM) and 1st match/team goal

Corners are the most lucrative for me and where my bigger stakes go and the higher volatility markets i use a much lower stake but still make a decent amount from those.


Braga v Tondela: 1st Braga goal SELL @ 40

Stoke v Tottenham: Stoke team corners BUY @ 4.75

Spread betting is certainly more exciting than fixed odds but that applies to the lows as well as the highs. I have tended to leave Spread betting alone for a while now as I found it nigh on impossible to know if and when to cash out to take a profit or cut your loss at the right time so much so that even if you had 'won' there was always that feeling that you should have gone sooner or later. In the example you gave, when the spread had been covered, whilst it's nice to count your profit every time a goal was scored, the downside was to look back at the end of the match if there were no more goals and feel deflated at not having cashed in earlier. It helps if you can look at a glass half full!!

I used to do goalscorer shirt numbers which, unless the match ended 0-0 was rarely a disaster. My favourite match was Rangers v Hearts (I think) when I had bought shirts at 52 or so and with a few minutes left they stood at 25 when Rangers got a penalty. Their usual penalty taker wore the No 9 shirt so I thought at least my loss would be mitigated. Then their latest acquisition Billy Dodds stepped forward to take and score the penalty wearing the No 47 shirt. In subsequent matches he was a regular goal machine but the spread for Rangers' matches reflected this (150/155). This continued until a cup match when the shirt numbers returned to the usual 1-11 to the delight of early sellers. Cerainly plenty of excitement as long as your blood pressure can stand it.

I never cash out on my bets. I place my bet and it either wins or it loses. (probably a leak) I have done shirts maybe once or twice but not something I have done much unless I maybe spot a high shirt number is playing out of position that maybe the spread firm haven't noticed.

I had a great week last week and the highlight was a BUY of TGM in the Liverpool v Dortmund game. Coutinhos goal on 66' made a 39pt profit so you can imagine my delight when 2 more goals came on 78 and 90 to make a further 168pts :)



Braga 1-0 after 5 minutes so a nice 35pts profit on the SELL of 1st match goal @ 40 :win:

Good to get some spread betting discussion from tipsters who use the spreads.

I tend to use the Win and Goals Markets and do close it when in profit or after the trade going against me. I tend to buy underdogs.

The total markets i also get involved with.

Rugby has been my most lucrative sport on the spreads.

I would nearly always watch the event if i was spread betting.

With shirts i would worry about losing mine.

Stoke end with 5 corners so a profit of 0.25pts

Bit disappionted with that one as Stoke got their 4th corner on 31' and i was offered a 3,25pt profit cashout which is the equivalent to stoke getting 8 corners so the only way I can make more than this cashout offer is if Stoke get 9 corners and that is a bit on the high side for them really 5-7 their general spread so maybe I do need to look at cashing out when in a very favourable position

Anyways 2 spread bets, 2 wins so a good day

1st team goal: +35pts
Corners: +0.25pts



Loads of football tomorrow so will be on good few bets :win:

Bought Huddersfield at 6.50 when they were 1-0 down to Rotherham, closed at 11 when they equalised. So a profit.

Bought Sheffield Wednesday at 15 when it was 0-0 expecting them to score at home to Milton Keynes, then they had a spate of yellows and then a red and it fizzled out for a 0-0 so settled at 10 and lost.

So made a miniscule profit on the night.

Arsenal v Atletico on the Spreadex Spreads looks like a draw on the 0-10-25 market where you get 0 for the team that loses, 10 if the game is drawn and 25 for the winner. Arsenal are at 13.2, Atletico at 11.8.

Of more interest may be the other tie where Marseille on the 0-10-25 market against Salzburg can be bought at 17.3 - if they win the game you get (25 - 17.3 = 7.7) x your stake of say £5 = £38.50, however if they lose at £5 a point and you bought them to win (0 -17.3 =17.3) x £5 = minus £86.50.


Both games will go in play.

Spread betting allows investors to wager on the price movement of a wide range of financial assets, including stocks, currency, commodities, and fixed-income securities. To put it another way, an investor places a wager on whether the market will rise or fall from the time their wager is accepted.
