Good luck!

Some Terms Explained:

Back: Low Stakes – use 10% of bank.
Back Heavy(BH) – use up to 30% of bank. Used at members discretion. Delay and Trade.
Lay: Low stakes – use 10% of bank.
Lay Heavy(LH) – use up to 30% of bank. Used at members discretion. Delay and Trade.
Likely 3 Setter – consider laying the winner of the first set.
Hot Tip – I have more confidence in these tips. However, use normal stake sizes.

Tips are deemed unsuccessful at 40% loss of stake.

All odds shown with the tips are correct at time of publishing. Odds are often given several hours ahead of the event. If odds have changed, adjust your back/lay stake accordingly e.g. if I tip ‘Back at 1.5, Lay at 1.25’ – and back odds move to 1.6, adjust your lay odds to 1.35 – there are still 25 ticks between the back and lay odds.

Delay and Trade!! It’s OK to place your trades before the match starts, but in my opinion, waiting 2/3 games before placing your trades is the safest way to trade. This is advised in many of the articles below. To delay and trade will give you a good feel for the match. Delay and Trade is a MUST if you are Backing Heavy. Delaying is advised mostly for the women’s game, as early breaks of serve are more likely.  Please read the relevant article below.

Some folks have asked why I call the tips ‘Betfair Tennis Trading Tips’ and have asked if the tips can be used on other betting exchanges. I use Betfair for all my trading because Betfair has the best liquidity. All of my prices are taken from Betfair.
Betfair Tennis Trading gives you the best opportunities to make profits. You can use the trading tips on other exchanges – there may be small price differences – but these shouldn’t matter. If you decide to use a site other that Betfair for trading, make sure that the liquidity is there.

    Stephens v Peng
    BetFair market error caused huge loss.
    Odds were jumped to 12.0 at the match start and the SP initially hit, but matched at 12 (maybe this is a Betting Assistant bug)..
    Here is the screenshot:

      Yeah there was a market spike to odds of 12 on Stephens. Thanks for the screenshot. The only thing you can do is get back into the market as soon as you can manually. I’m sorry if you incurred a loss here but as you can see I had tipped Stephens here to play well and indeed she was on a roll. Not sure what would have caused the spike…

    Great Job! I also took Keys v Errani in the evening and got a full strike.

  • Profitcsinalo Posted May 27, 2014 8:57 pm

    I think someone misclicked in his trading software, that caused this spike.
    Yes, Stehpens was good.
    I was traded again Stephens after SP was hit, and I managed my loss to -65.6 EUR. I was happy with that loss 🙂
