SBLT (Small banks large trades) Video by The Badger.

This video shows the advantage of trading large sums for low risk on very short priced favourites. This video shows me trading a Twenty20 match between Pakistan and Ireland. There was only ever going to be one winner here so how do you make money from such one sided matches?

Thanks Mikey, some people see a price of 1.06 and think there is nothing they can do. Well nothing is further from the truth. You will have some very good opportunities to test it out on the tennis this week in the US Open.

A great example was just last week. Andy Murray was trading at 1.04 pre match, lost the first set and went above 1.50. Plenty of the members cleaned up on that one.

So for a risk of £40 you could have layed £1000 at 1.04 and then backed it at 1.50 for a PROFIT of £460.

Worth a thought

Works well on tennis and cricket, anything really. When I get back to Scotland I can give you a more detailed explanation.

I’ve done a few of these on the tennis this week using £100 stakes for about 90p profit a time. I’ve been very cautious but it seems to be working well. Another sport this might work nicely on is darts, with the likes of Phil Taylor and Raymond Van Barneveld often starting at very short prices and sometimes taking a while to warm to their game.

Nice tip, Badger, cheers.

Ok back home and able to think. Any market where you have a very short favourite can work a treat. Andy Murray was trading at 1.04 and I layed £10,000 for a risk of £400 and he lost the first set. I got out at 1.50 for a result of £4600. He then went on to win the match. So I effectively got 11/1 for him. happy days.

In my cricket video I lay Pakistan at 1.05 for £5000 and back at 1.06 for £5000 and make £50. I do that twice and make £100 then green up for £94.

You only need a one tick move to do this, and often at the start of matches it can jump a lot if a player drops serve in the first set or lose an early wicket. You see it all the time. Of course class prevails and they win but we can exploit these windows of opportunity and scurry away with a nice bounty.

Do some paper trades and actually watch what the markets do with these shorties and you will be shocked!

Check it out, money to be made.

What would be the chance of you sharing your selections pre event? (cheek!)

Maybe a good subscription service there???

i am thinking along the same lines as ljones85….any chance of some advance selections badger ?

I do have a subscription service as it happens. Just today the advised trade was to Back New Zealand at 2.72 and lay them at 1.70. When Sri Lanka were 17-2 it was job done, money in the bank.

But hey sure, if I see one I think will be worth a shot, I will post it.

Off topic but on money making, Nadal at 1.57 looks a massive price against Monfils. I rate him a 1.25 chance, and with no injury a 1.08 chance.

I think Kim Clijsters is too big at 1.25, she should be 1.08 and Bryan/Bryan against Ball/Guccione in the doubles at 1.17 is bank interest.

So £50 all up on those three will get you about £114 should they all win.

Back on topic, Murray can be a slow starter but that is why he is 1.08 and not 1.04.

Try him at 1.06 and see how it goes.

Hi Badger,

thanks for the post. I am more interested in the short lays really, but what is your service? got a link?

I am interested in trades but not bets so would be interested to pick up on your service

There you go, if you got on Murray at 1.06 (£179,000 matched) he is now 1.71. Massive profit there.

Happy days

Nice one Badger. I missed this unfortunately, but did manage to squeeze a small trade at 1.04/1.03 out of Del Potro. I like this laying at low odds, it feels safer somehow.
