as the other one has died, if anyone's interested in posting trading ideas - no abuse please i admit what i am , i'm a member of AA (Aftertimers Anonymous) - i've been to my meeting already today - "I'm Green Army & I'm an aftertimer"  - they all clapped and we congratulated each other for being on swansea on saturday

FWIW I reckon wigan are too high at 4 as newcastle have lost their last 4 and were v poor v swansea in the last home game - the stats show a low scoring game wigan 1-0 at 14 for me

the draw at 12 for chelsea on wednesday i think is too high too & Udinese 4.2 v liverpool looks big - i realise its caveat emptor with the reds but Udinese are a good Serie A side that won at anfield and i believe a win will put them thru and knock the reds outs (ie i think its GD between the teams in the 2 games rather than in the group ? - apologies if thats not right)

and a bit of fun on bayern v bate - i took 970/1 on 3-1 bate - thats the score bate beat them by in the reverse fixture and this game doesn't matter - this time next year.........

Morning ga! Was talking to sweetchildofmine yesterday on chatroom and he's wondering why you haven't made the move over yet to join us. There's quite a few heads that used to post on this thread over there now. Me , sweetchildofmine and hodinia to name a couple. There's a team of traders some working together posting correct score, over/under and match odds trades and sharing ideas etc. There's a mixture of young traders and also traders in their 40s that have been around the block and done it :). It's a lot better than on here because instead of a few posts here and there we have constant discussions which go on throughout the day on the chatroom plus there's the pmt automated tool which enables us to find the correct score gaps in the market!  There's 3 or 4 of us that have started bullying the markets for lower liquidity games leaving big lays in correct score to try and bully the market and force it back. It's been good fun on there this season :)

For this weekend I can't see anything other than chelsea getting backed off the walls against Sunderland.  Sunderland drifted vs two of the premier leagues weakest sides in crystal palace and Leicester so the markets don't give them any respect.  I reckon chelsea stay under the 1.45 barrier for sure and I expect carnage after the saturday 3pms finish with punters falling over each trying to back high chelsea winning scores. It makes sense to get positioned early for this one!

Silly prices for our game with Notts County tonight. 1.62 for the home win is way too short. The 4.2 for the draw looks very generous considering how low scoring most Sheff Utd games are. But again, it's League One so it's difficult to commit to it.

Well done, JK.  Good tipping.  Going to have a few Premier League bets this weekend.

Taken Arsenal at West Brom at 1.85.  Seem to remember Arsenal being a very similar price a few months back away at Villa and don't rate WBA much more than I do Villa, so the price seems more than fair given that Arsenal won at a canter that day.  I know they have a few injury absentees, but WBA are utter gash and I expect Arsenal to get the job done.  In the event of some pre match surge into something like 1.7 I'll probably take my stake back, but content to be on at the price.

Laying Burnley.  Yes, Villa suck, but 2.2?  Come on.  Burnley should be favs, but not this short.  Wouldn't be surprised if Villa won, but happy enough to just lay Burnley.

Can't help but feel that 1.73 on Liverpool will look big come 16:45, so am on despite usual reservations about them being a bang average side.

No bet on Man U v Hull.  1.33 not a price that appeals, although I don't see how Hull avoid defeat.

QPR v Leicester - who cares?

Swansea are at full strength (pretty much) vs Palace.  1.83 looks more than fair.  I'm on.

West Ham v Newcastle - fancy the Hammers to win, but it has all of the hallmarks of a match I'd lose on even if I backed all 3 at their optimum price.  So no bet, as prices look bang on.

Sunderland v Chelsea - agree with smithy in that I expect Chelsea to be heavily backed provided they put out a strong side.  1.41 (if matched) for the undefeated pretty much nailed on League winners looks like a more than reasonable price versus the complete garbage that is Sunderland.  Probably do 1-0, 2-0 and 3-0 as well if I haven't squandered loads on the 15:00 kick offs!

Also having an Arsenal, Villa, Liverpool, Man U, Swansea, Hammers and Chelsea sevenfold, which is surely phree munny.

Finally, backing Leyton Orient to beat my lot.  We're normally very charitable to teams below us who are in need of a win, and I don't expect tomorrow to be any different.  Taking Leeds at 4.3 as well.  Mainly because I'll be happy whatever the result that way Laugh .

Good luck all.

Some good tips there rob the bantam! How you finding your first week on pmt green army are you impressed with the tool. One of the experienced traders on pmt likes to call me a "youth value fukka" which I'm quite happy to take on the chin. I find if you sit patiently around certain scorelines in value positions you often don't get anything matched. When I force the market into where I want it to go I end up with huge greens. That is it in a nutshell for me so I'm quite happy to be called a "youth value fukka". I didn't land any scorelines at weekend but my trading partner is absolutely flying at the minute.  He only started trading at the beginning of this year and I've never seen someone adapt to the art trading as quick as he has. It was all from a private message on betfair forum to me I showed him a few things on correct score and now he's miles better than me. I suppose being an accountant though he was already good with numbers. We doubled teamed the 2-0 spurs yesterday 14 into 13.5 then I took 2k at 8 1-1 he took 1k and instead of laying off at 7.8 I tried the 7.6 lay over 2.5 got backed in and I ended up scratching at 8 like a complete buffoon.  I broke the rule of don't be a d!ck for a tick!

That's true ga. I've had two weeks off from match odds. Leicester going off at 1.97 vs Sunderland was the final straw for me. Big asian syndicates manipulating the markets to where they shouldn't be going. Liverpool should be 2.24-2.26 vs Leicester we will see if that gets there although I won't be putting money on it. Glad your enjoying pmt. One guys tips to lookout for is jb79 the guy only ever leaves his laptop to go to work.  He knows correct score inside out I've been following his tips all season :) one other thing I've noticed is the amount of traders signing up to pmt that DON'T have a clue what their doing and expect pmt to print money off which will never work as you need to understand the markets. So although correct score is packed with shrewds there are plenty of beginner traders pumping money into correct score going in blindly off pmt which is destined for failure. Pmt is there as a guideline it's not gospel.

I've been testing something out during the last month aswell. Everytime I'm set in position I post what score I'm on so everyone on the chatroom can see. Somebody puts a stack right behind me in the queue and follows me in. I'm guessing it's some of the beginner traders because it seems to happen everytime. If the trade dosen't quite pan out it makes it easier to scratch it. I drove the arsenal vs dortmund 2-2 14 into 12.5 last week and then it started to reverse back up with a load of pmt followers backing heavily at 13. To say it was panic stations would be an understatement. It went off 13.5-14!

Burnley vs Newcastle looks like a nailed on 1-1 draw to me. Unders 1.78 means the market only expects 1 or 2 goals and I agree with it. Newcastle have a few injuries and with the run they have been on a point wouldn't be a bad result. Burnley have improved a bit recently beating stoke away and drawing 1-1 with villa at weekend.  1-1 ft result tonight for me!

Well done lads. My kind of game to that jk :). I think there's a trend that's developed in the premier league just like in the championship. Apart from man city and chelsea every team that plays away from home has a great chance of drawing 1-1 as it's a very level playing field. The bottom 12 sides in the league are all in a relegation scrap so we see lots of draws. The sides above the 12 arsenal,  everton,  Southampton,  Tottenham,  Liverpool and man united all look suspect when they play away from home mainly after european games.  This also brings the 1-1s into play for their away games. A basic system but one that should work all season like burnley vs Newcastle.  Just a case of getting money down early and into the right position in line with under/over 2.5 goals!

I'm having serious mixed views about this Sunderland vs man city game ga as I've already posted in pmt chatroom. I can totally see why people think 0-0 is big at 19. I'm one of them I mean can it really go much higher after Sunderland held the league's best team at home on Saturday.  We can expect Sunderland to play the same tactics as against chelsea so they will try and stop the intricate passing on the edge of the box and also pack the penalty box out so city can't get through then hit them on the counter.  I would like to get 0-0 onside myself.  I have unders at 2.28 ish for this and market goes 2.42. I'm playing a risky game here though because I'm big on 3-1 man city 14-14.5 even though I think unders is big. I do reckon city get the job done tonight and break the stadium of light hoodoo.  Closing the gap on chelsea to 6 points then losing it again in the space of a few days would surely be unthinkable.  Interesting game and market this one!
Report Rob_The_Bantam December 6, 2014 8:10 AM GMT
Dithering over whether to get stuck into Arsenal.  Stoke always well up for this match since the Ramsey/Shawcross nonsense.  Arsenal hate going to Stoke.  Arsenal grinding out wins at the moment, while Stoke are losing matches that they're not playing particularly badly in.  Expected Arsenal to be around the 2.16 mark, so going to have to take them on, but have a sinking feeling about the bet.

Can't see a great deal else to get excited about in the Prem.  Should QPR be approaching evens against Burnley?  Probably not.  Would have QPR at around the 2.25 mark, so will take them on too, albeit for a non-lifechanging amount, as I've not seen enough of either this year to get heavily involved.

City will probably get backed assuming it's a strong side, as it's the evening kick off and Aguero seems to be good for a goal a game at least.  Meh.

not sure how to play Southampton vs man united. current odds saints 2.92 man united 2.64 the draw 3.55. I reckon saints could get backed purely based on the Asian force behind them! just like Leicester. they don't go off form this lot who rule our markets. look at Leicester today 3.5 into 2.98 with no wins in 9 again no logic. so saints in a bit of poor form will it affect anything. no I don't think it will. wouldn't be surprised if we see saints go off favourites it could happen. man united are shorter than man city to win their. city were 2.7 at kickoff united are 2.64. seems a bit weird to me this. I won't be touching match odds with a bargepole but all this uncertainty makes correct score a pain to trade. then look at under/over 2.5. unders only very marginal fave at 1.96 so that's also on a knifedge. i'm waiting for match odds to move in the morning before making my move in what will be an extremely competitive market

Thing is, United are shorter than City as market was unsure how Saints would cope with City.  As it was, they got mauled by ten men and have since lost at Arsenal, so was always bound to affect the prices of this match.  But, like you, I'm staying away at the moment.  Nothing appeals.

Laying 1-1 @ 6.8 juventus vs atletico madrid today.  6.8 is as low as a 1-1 can go pretty much so I've put a wall of steel at 6.8 today! 3-1 dortmund 11.5-12 looks good to me vs anderlecht.  Liverpool vs basle looks awful. If I had to stick my neck out I'd say unders are value at 2.1. Liverpool don't score at anfield anymore. Galatasary vs arsenal.  Arsenal have already named their team and sanogo is playing. Sanogo always tends to bring unders in and seen as unders starts off high I reckon we see an unders crash pre off 2.26 into 2.1. I'm laying 2-2 @ 14.5 in that game!

Not many people will have been looking forward to besiktas vs Tottenham this week but I have I think there's a decent chance to make money on it! In the reverse fixture at white hart lane besiktas where huge at 5/1 to win but unfortunately they lacked a cutting edge in front of goal even with former chelsea hitman demba ba playing the lone striker.  Eventually they scored a deserved equaliser from the penalty spot and the game ended 1-1! Now I quite like the look of this 2.4 on besiktas to win tonight but there's a problem demba ba is injured so from what I saw during the reverse fixture I'm not convinced they have the cutting edge to score goals against spurs. For Tottenham a draw is perfect they top the group of qualify as the seeded team. Besiktas need to beat spurs to finish above them. So spurs will come for a draw tonight I believe so it looks nailed on under 2.5 goals at 1.79 with everything taken into consideration.  0-0 @ 11 and 1-1 @ 7.4 is where I want green in correct score.  Arsenal played at besiktas in a champs league qualifier back in august. That game was 0-0 as even the likes of alexis sanchez couldn't find a way past besiktas's stubborn defence. Roll on 6pm!

train tickets have now gone on sale for the Tottenham vs man united 2-2 train at 14! two teams evenly matched and goals are expected it only means one thing. a 2-2 packout! harry kane is on fire at the minute for spurs so we have to give him his customary goal. likewise wayne rooney he's also on fire for Manchester united so we'll give him a goal aswell! these two sides keep going over 2.5 goals so overs at 1.75 is going to attract many punters including me. if we look at both sides past results there is a lot of 2-1 1-2 results so we just need an extra goal from somewhere to get this 2-2 and I think there is enough firepower on show to get it!

Leicester 1-2 tottenham
Tottenham 1-2 stoke
Tottenham 1-2 Newcastle
aston villa 1-2 Tottenham
hull city 1-2 Tottenham
Tottenham 2-1 burnley
Tottenham 2-1 everton.

Man united 2-1 stoke
Southampton 1-2 man united
man united 2-1 west ham
west brom 2-2 man united
arsenal 1-2 man united

as we can see here quite big over 2.5 trends and a lot of 2-1 1-2 results. I quite like 2-1 Tottenham at 13 would be great to get that onside but 2-1 united at 9.8 looks a great lay with a view to trade higher I reckon we see the big 1-2 layer arrive tomorrow and force it upto 10.5 catching loads of traders out in the process forcing them to panic and trade out for a loss. I will stick to my 2-2 at 13/1 though I think it's great value!

Yes zealot I've been on betfair since march 2010 so spent a good few years watching the markets. This season though is the first one I feel totally in control of what I am doing.  I have a set criteria now for certain games and just copy the same procedure each time. Eg capital one cup and europa league games are prone to being very volatile so most of my trades are approached from the lay side with a view to back higher up! Also these type of games are lower liquidity so I sometimes pick one scoreline to manipulate pack it out and get matched on both sides. Make sure it's done before team news because anything can happen then and remove the position hopefully by that point the score is nicely greened.  When team news arrives and everything goes a bit crazy I  make new entries then mostly lays to catch the very bottom of a trend before it bounces back up and you can green out!

Looking at the Southampton vs arsenal game tommorow and the 2-2 price at 17.5-18.5 looks right at the top of the range of the market!  Unders already 1.9 I'm not sure they should be much shorter than that. Arsenal's last two away games were 2-1 winners at west ham and a 2-2 draw with Liverpool both these sides are on a similar level to Southampton.  Rather than backing 1-1 @ 7.4 I'd rather take more than double the odds by backing 2-2 17.5-18.5. Southampton normally good for a goal at home likewise arsenal are away so that's were I'm going tommorow!

Under 2.5 goals at 2.76 is to big tonight for afc wimbledon vs Liverpool here are my reasons why! Raheem sterling has not travelled tonight so although Liverpool's form has picked up recently are we going to see them slump back into old ways with lambert or balotelli stood in the lone strikers role like a lampost with no movement. Sterling won't be around tonight so rodgers needs to find a new method and I'm not convinced he has it! We expect Liverpool to shuffle the pack and wimbledon will be full strength.  If we look at Liverpool's two strikers mario balotelli has scored 1goal in 6 months likewise rickie lambert has 1 goal in 6 months. So is this game definitely going to go over 2.5 like the market suggests? I'm not convinced and from a trading perspective I think we have a good chance of see over 2.5 goals exploding from 1.56 out to 1.68ish which would give us an excellent trade after the team news comes out at 7pm! If we look at previous fixtures from this season where prem teams have played away at lower league opposition I have recorded some of the prices at kickoff. Shrewsbury vs chelsea over 2.5 1.74. Yeovil vs man united over 2.5 1.64 .   Dover vs crystal palace over 2.5 1.9. Here we have wimbledon vs Liverpool over 2.5 1.57. It dosen't make sense when you think rooney and falcao were on show at yeovil Liverpool don't have that firepower tonight. Let's get on unders at 2.76 and hope the markets corrects itself into 2.54 at kickoff! Away favourite unders sentiment it should be!

Hi peter the focus of my attention this weekend is leicester vs aston villa!! I make leciester a back at 2.26 with a view to trading out around the 2.04-2.1 mark! I think this is a great risk reward trade. I can't see leicester going off above 2.3 so I believe there is a chance we could lose 5 ticks but I think there is potential to gain 20 ticks. Quite simply the asian force behind our markets love leicester city even though they don't win many football matches in the premier league. The markets also do not like aston villa! When these two played each other last month at villa park leceister got ploughed from 3.45 into 2.98. I know because I was on the wrong end of the move and I posted the trade up on here. When leicester played Sunderland at home they went off at 1.97 which was ridiculous and there was no logic in that move as Sunderland had just won 3-1 away at crystal palace whereas leicester had no wins in 9 matches but yet still got backed from 2.2 into 1.97. This time around though leicester have actually hit some decent form and it's not like the asians need any excuse to back them anyway. They lost 2-1 at home to Tottenham were I heard leciester outplayed them. A 1-0 win away at hull followed by an impressive 2-2 draw away at Liverpool.  Then to round it off a 1-0 home win vs Newcastle backed from 2.5 into 2 again instigated by leicester's asian market force!  I expect the money to arrive between 4am-6am on saturday morning and the asians to launch a big assault backing leciester.  Then the english traders will wake up and think wow leicester are short. I'm confident enough even though leicester have already shortened to load up on this as I like risk reward!

The system I'm currently running on correct score basically involves trying to get as many correct scores onside as possible for the live televised game or games for that specific day. I trade pretty much any score I can get my hands on but mainly the scores which are more likely . I rarely trade 3-3s 3-2s 2-3s as they don't happen very often and it seems a bit pointless wasting time with these scores! Having said that everyday provides a big challenge as guessing which way match odds and under/ over 2.5 market moves unlocks the key to finding out which scores will drift and which ones will steam! As a team on pmt chatroom we work together throughout the day to try and solve the jigsaw puzzle!

It's a week on Saturday, and given that they play Monaco in the Champions League the following midweek, it's not out of the question that Wenger may rest a key player or two prior to that game. Whilst the backup players may well still win the game (eg whether it Walcott/Rosicky in for Sanchez/Ozil) the market may still drift a few ticks if that's the case. Worth keeping an eye on this for all the European Leagues from now on in prior to Champions League games, eg decent chance of Costa/Aguero being on the bench.

West brom vs west ham match betting preview!  This game is going under 2.5 goals for me. I am suprised to see 1.88 being offered for under 2.5 goals. Pulis vs allardyce are the under 2.5 defensive masters should be 1.75 unders gents!  Hull vs villa the other night unders 1.53 :D. I appreciate we have berahino , sakho and valencia on display who can obviously score but I fancy defences to be on top for this game. Let's look at west ham's fa cup run so far. 1-1 away to everton then 1-1 again for the replay and 1-0 winners away to bristol city. They have also just drawn 0-0 away to Southampton in the league.  This is a genuine chance for both teams to get to the final.  Man united can be beaten they are a bobbins outfit and there manager dosen't know how to field his fantasy football team. Arsenal won it last year so chances are they'll slip up this time. I reckon 0-0 1-0 0-1 1-1 one of those scores it will be at full time for west brom vs west ham. My mate has queue jumped me on 0-0 @ 11.5 I'm sitting at 12. So my plan is now to catch the 0-0 when it comes down with 10 and 10.5 lays.

Interesting andriy :) not all correct score markets trade according to the pmt tool I use so you have think for yourself quite a lot. 2-0s can often trade high which means the 2-1 could trade low etc!  I often leave big sums up overnight backing 3-1s. If I have loads matched overnight and get taken on aggressively this tells me that under 2.5 is likely at some stage to come in. If I have little amounts matched chances are I'm in the right position as the bots won't take me on!

This was the key indicator for me though to crack the market  I knew then that either Chelsea were going to drift or under 2.5 would shorten or quite possibly both! I then based all my trades on these thoughts!  It took right until team news though for chelsea to drift as fabregas and oscar two key influential market players were on the bench. 1.36 out to 1.4 Chelsea was a small drift but proved very effective for me!

Just been spending my day off work doing some studying and I think I've got a very strong case for unders to get backed tommorow west brom vs west ham.  Had a look at past results and the 1-1 is a very common scoreline for west ham especially in away games. Swansea vs west ham 1-1 Sunderland vs west ham 1-1 westham vs man united 1-1 west ham vs west brom 1-1 and they also drew twice 1-1 with everton in the 3rd round of the fa cup in both ties as it went to a replay which they won on penalties.  Since pulis took over only one game has gone over 2.5 at the hawthorns and that was a 3-0 loss to Tottenham who look mightily impressive on current form. The movement of the front four kane, lamela, dembele and eriksen is scintillating at times. Dembele is one of my favourite players when he does that drop of the shoulder  he's a class act I  try and model my own game on him when I play in midfield. Anyway back on topic no shame in west brom losing to Tottenham I can't see west ham going there and winning 3-0! I just can't see how the current unders price at 1.87 goes any bigger. Pinny have just cut the under 2.5 into 1.78 now that could be a significant move. If SBOBET follow suit it's time to take a huge chunk of unders. Looks a strong risk reward trade this!!!

Quick update from me! Had a roller coaster ride this week but live to trade another day! On Wednesday arsenal vs monaco game I cancelled £40,000 worth of bets on my mobile phone on correct score market. I cancelled all unmatched bets by accident THREE times in one day by accident was a disaster.  First time I'm on my morning break at work market was quiet so I was just updating my positions and noticed my money had evaporated from the Market.  I knew what I'd done so I had to unload the 15k back into the market on loads of different scores.  I'd lost all my queue positions so not good. Then on my dinner break same thing happened again I cancelled all unmatched bets again so had to start from scratch again with a few positions now exposed on the market.  Then before bed on Wednesday night hit the cancel all unmatched bets again on my mobile by mistake and lost all my queue positions this time on besiktas vs Liverpool correct score. Was fuming about this and I partly blame my phone for being slow and the touchscreen not working properly anymore but also the betfair mobile app is designed very poorly. Open bets icon is right next to the cancel all unmatched icon and I place around 100 bets a day on correct score so I'm constantly updating my positions throughout the day! Only takes a misclick and your 15k evaporates from the market. I've just ordered the samsung S5 today so hopefully this will solve the problem as it should be much quicker which will hopefully help me avoid cancelling all my bets by mistake!

Liverpool vs man city match betting preview! Not sure where man city price is going they should be 2.5+ here vs a Liverpool side who have lost two games in 20 matches. This is a man city side who have won one in the last six matches so there hardly coming here in great form. They shortened 2.56 into 2.4 last night because Liverpool went into extra time vs besiktas but man city were chasing barcelona around for 90 minutes on tuesday night. Man city were 2.7 to win away at Southampton and Liverpool just went to Southampton and won 2-0 so the 2.4 on a man city win has to be the absolute barrier. Surely they can not go shorter. They have not won at anfield since 2003 and since the start of this year Liverpool have the most points gained than any other team. I'm waiting in the wings to lay man city for a risk reward trade at 2.4ish I have them 2.6! For correct score it's all about 2-2 @ 15. Last three games between these two at anfield.  2-2 2-2 and 3-2 win for Liverpool so this fixture tends to produce goals and also when they play at the etihad! The current over 2.5 price is 1.85 and I think that's a good back I have overs 1.75 for this. When Liverpool drew 2-2 with arsenal back in December overs were 1.75 and the 2-2 got smashed into 13.5. That's something to take serious note off as I think we will see a similar move take place for this game. I can't see why unders would shorten pre off apart from the fact the Liverpool have tightened up defensively.  But I don't think that's enough to stop overs from coming in. Bony, aguero,  toure, sterling, and sturridge all on the same pitch and going off the past trends indicate we see goals on sunday!
