In part 1 of this series, I told you a bit about me and a friend of mine, Steve. Specifically, I shared how we'd spent a lot of time together at school, then lost touch, before reuniting with a common passion for sport and betting. And, most importantly of all, I related how we both now make our living on line from sport and betting. If you missed that, Part 1 can be read here.
In this second part of three, I want to show you how this works; share some of the results achieved by normal people (just like you); and highlight some of the feedback Steve has had just in the last few months for his help and advice. If you've ever dreamed - or, better still, thought seriously - about making a decent second income from sports betting, then I encourage you to read through this post very carefully.
First of all, let me tell you something of how this works.
What Steve and his students are doing is creating situations where whatever happens in the event, they will win, even before the result is known. For example, if they're betting on the outright result of a football match, they might set up a situation before the game and then have a very clearly defined route to create a win-win position.
Let me give you an example, for correct score betting. Here's a typical correct score bet, £10 on 1-0. Notice how the 1-0 is a big green result but everything else is -£10 in red.
Now here's one of Steve's trades. This time, notice that there's less profit, but that it is guaranteed, whatever the final result.
Of course, it doesn't always work that way, which is why arguably the most important element to this is learning how to manage the possible downside. In other words, the first thing is not losing; the second thing is winning. After all, if you can 'not lose' in three games, and win in three games, that's a pretty good situation to be in, right?
In a nutshell, Steve is trading football. Tr-what?! Trading football. This involves three steps:
1. Identify the right game, and the right trade
Steve's got some brilliant kit which he's had specially designed that basically does all the number-crunching legwork for you, in terms of finding the right game, and the right market - be it correct score, total goals, half time-full time, or whatever.
He's charging a fair chunk of money per month for access to that, and rightly so. It cost him £10k to have developed, and it's worth every penny, both in time savings, and in the fact that computers almost never make calculation errors (whereas humans almost always do!)
2. Set the trade up
Next, Steve - and his followers - set their trades up. That is, they place certain bets on the match before it starts. Then it's cup of tea and a sandwich* time [*other drinks and snacks work equally well 😉 ] before kick off.
3. Manage the position during the game, with the objective of going 'all green'.
As well as choosing the match and market, Steve's software also shows what is statistically likely to happen, and when. This is of paramount importance, because it is this info against which the bets are made. This is also the part where Steve's expertise comes to the fore, and how he's managed to help so many people to become successful traders. That applies equally to those who have tried and failed before; and to those who had never even heard of trading beforehand.
4. That's it
In most games, he'll (and you'll) be out of the market before the end, either with a nice profit or, if things go against you - which they can - a small, tightly managed, loss. And that's the key here. If you can learn to manage the urge to gamble, and instead 'play the data', you WILL win.
OK, so that's all well and good, and I hope you follow so far. Now let me share some numbers with you, from some of Steve's correct score trades. Remember, these figures are for live trades made by Steve and some of his members, and they were to quite low £10 stakes.
There are a few things to say about this chart. Firstly, note the overall consistency of the approach. It's flatlined a bit in places, and even dropped back a little here and there, but the overall trend is upward, or profitable as I like to say!
But it is important to note that sometimes games just don't conform to what might have been expected. There are freak results - outliers - and you'll have to manage those. It's just part of the game. The difference here is that losing runs are generally short, and the fact that you have someone in your corner gives confidence or guidance when you hit a bad result.
Steve had a fair few of those when he started, mainly due to taking a while to shift the gamblers' mindset. But since he got over that, he's not looked back, and now trades for a living... as well as showing other people how to do the same.
And 317 units profit is obviously a huge amount. If you were trading for tenners, that's £3,175. Or two nice holidays. At £20 stakes it's £6,350. Or a decent second hand car. At £50 stakes, it's... well, you get the idea. I don't want to trumpet massive numbers, because the key is to start slowly, learn how to do this properly, get your confidence up, and build up your bank.
That's the sensible way to do this. This is NOT get rich quick. But it is a seriously achievable second income opportunity that you can readily apply in your spare evenings and at weekends: that's the beauty of it.
Naturally, when you're making a few hundred pounds each month, you might want to take it to the next level, with a greater time and/or capital commitment. But first thing first. Get the hang of walking before starting to run.
I asked Steve to write a little diary of a day's trading. This is from last year, the first (and so far only) time we offered this - which sold out in two days!
So far, I've told you how this works, and shown you some of the numbers involved. And Steve has walked you through a morning's trading (it's exactly the same drill for an evening's trading or a couple of hours of weekend trading).
Steve's is a simple enough approach, and the numbers are exciting in terms of their achievability (if that's a word!). But as someone perhaps reading about this type of opportunity for the first time (or maybe seriously thinking about whether you can do it for the first time), let me share some of Steve's member feedback.
When I asked him for a couple of comments, I was shocked with the number of recent emails he had received. Not surprised really, but it's clear proof that his methods work well, and they work well for other people. Lots of other people!
Hi Steve,I feel compelled to send you this email. Over the past year or so I have subscribed (on and off) to your service and have read your emails everytime they grace my inbox. I always thought you had something with this service and I felt that it was a worthwhile subscription.They're are many charlatans out there in this industry, and being sceptical by nature I was wary of Goalprofits. I had a poor summer trading and I even signed up to a few of the other services that you recommended in an attempt to turn a corner. I found these products of a very poor standard in comparison to yours, I became frustrated with the industry and wrongly put Goalprofits into the same category as these other services.After I analysed my own trading performance over the summer I released I was chasing profits and was very indisciplined.Today though I returned a large profit, and in the middle of that were some losses, but I stayed focused, stuck to the plan and ended my Saturday night in a great way (Including a 2-3 trade in Man Utd game)I have my own business and I am extremely proud of how I built it up. It is because of this that I know you are genuine when you tell your members that you are hurt by the loses.So, after this incredibly soft email, from a grown man, I'd like to say thank you and keep up the good work.
Evening Steve,Just a quick e-mail to say how impressed I am with your service. I have only been with you a couple of months but have learned so much about CS trading in that time. I've been betting for years and have tried literally hundreds of bets and systems and I can honestly say that this is right up there with the best.I've made a very respectable £408.08 profit so far. I'm sure, as my methods improve so will my profits. Keep up the great work, it's very much appreciated.RegardsJohn
Hi Steve,Just wanted to say I've been using the HT LTD strategy these past few weeks and I've been very impressed with it, well in profit and well worth the outlay. Two out of two this weekend at Landskrona yesterday and Coritiba tonight. Thanks for making it available, well pleased with it!Regards,James
SteveThanks very much for the last month. Superb result. I am up over £200 (I wasn't able to do all the trades and have experimented a bit in some other markets - sometimes to my profit, others not...) and more importantly I've gained confidence in my own trading.I am considering increasing my stakes to £20 in November given that I feel very comfortable with how I play things now so I look forward to continuing this great run we're on.All the bestMatt
Steve,I think I've been a member for about a month now and I can't tell you how happy I am that I found your service. The CS system is brilliant an it really fits with my personal approach to trading, and not only that, so far it's also extremely profitable! But one of the best things is the chat room and support from yourself, I feel it's jumped me months ahead on my trading journey, in terms of knowledge and experiences.Cheers,Alex
Hi, Steve,Many thanks for this. I traded for the first time last night and made 40% profit – I also thoroughly enjoyed the trading as well as the advice and discussion on the forum.Great service and I look forward to the next session!Best regards,Ken
SteveI would like to say a very big thank you for turning me into a trader instead of a gambler, and unbelievably MAKING MONEY. Clear concise instruction without the B.S. simple.Many Thanks
Hi Steve,Like the new layout, much easier to get around.Yeah results good last week, in fact since I have started getting these stats through I have traded 12 matches and had 12 winners.Great stuffBob
Hi Steve,Thanks for getting in touch and yes its going very well thanks, I still get a little confused at times but I started with smallerstakes to get the feel of it and am well in profit already. Shame that 4th goal went in last night during Napoli and Roma gamebut I still came out ahead. Great stuff!I look forward to receiving any mail you send Steve, I have lost count of the number of “can’t fail systems” I havebought and tried, aswell as trying to devise my own over the years, finally something really goodwith a helpful bloke running it!Cant thank you enough Steve. You really know your stuff and it’s a pleasure to be part of this.All the best, Dave
Just wanted to quickly say how brilliant it is now to have all the relevant stats for the day's fixtures batched together, having a huge amount of stats made it easy before this update but now it's even easier! What a fantastic service GP is, thankyou for all your hard work. All the updates make life so much easier for us all as traders.
Hi steve,let me say, that i never have meet such a honest guy in the (internet) betting world like you and i am looking forward to learn from you every day and get better and better with the time in sports trading. you are the biggest pro trader i have ever seen and i have every day such a good feeling to follow your advices. not to mention your statistical work which will all followers bring hopefully profit in the future...best regardsMichael
Hi Steve,Hooking up with Goal Profits has been one of the best decisions I have made in my life!
SteveI just want to thank you for the work you have put in for Team Stats, these are more than worth the subs alone, and will give us a fantastic advantage. I CS traded the German game last night, my first trade for a while as I am not always available, but I usually lay your selections on the U1.5 market, when odds drop to acceptable level between 10-20 minute mark, on my phone and I am well in profit this year doing this alone. Team Stats will now allow me to highlight my own selections very easily and hopefully push my profit up higher. You should be very proud to be offering what is without doubt the best service available anywhere, and long may it continue. Thank you again.Best regardsMalc
SteveYou're busy enough without having to reply, but just wanted to say thanks. Without a shadow of a doubt the best service out there, and as time goes on, probably the only one anyone needs.RegardsDom
