Tutorial: How To Lay Football Matches Using Betdaq or Betfair.
This tutorial is going to be as precise as possible, you can use betfair by visiting betfair.com/exchange but for the purpose of this tutorial, I will be using betdaq.
So step 1 is to open betdaq, when you open the website you will need to click on the betdaq button to access the main trading platform as shown below.
Once you click on it, it will open the main website as shown below;
So take for instance, if I send a tip for the day and I ask you to - "Lay Aston Villa to win Halftime-Fulltime @2.5"
What I'm trying to say is that you should bet against Aston Villa not to win both first and second half, you will only lose if they win both halves...If they win only one of the halves, then you win. If they don't win any of the halves, you win!
So here is how to place the bet;
Locate sports and click on soccer and click on English soccer (In most cases I will always include the name of the league we are betting on).
Click on English soccer and click on The championship 18/19 as shown below
after clicking just locate the Half-Time/Full-Time market and locate the Aston villa - Astonvilla then click on the odds under the lay as shown below.
Note, this step is applicable to all markets even the under and over market.
Once you click on it, it will automatically show you where to place your bet as shown be low.
In the image below you can see my stake is 20, the automatic odds for laying is 2.0 minus the 2% commissions.
so if i stake $20 and I win, i'm making back about 19.7 dollars but if i loose, i'm loosing $28.
You can see that this is quite different from the regular everyday betting and that's why you need a solid staking plan.
As you can see from my explanation, liability is the amount you are going to lose if the bet fails to happen.
The Staking Plan: The Most Important!
Let's assume a bank of 1000 points:
Prices below 3.5: lay to 1% of bank - you lay 10 pts, your liability under 25 pts
Prices from 3.5 to 7.4: lay to 0.6% of bank - you lay 6 pts, your liability 15 to 38.4 pts
So let me break that down...
Take for instance you are betting with a bankroll of $1000, thats is automatically 1000points...just divide your bankroll by 100, it will give you 1% of your entire bankroll which is equivalent to 10pts.
Any odds you are laying that is less than @3.5, you bet 10pts in this case 10pts will be $10
Any odds from @3.5 to @7.4 you bet 6points in this case, 6points will be $6.
