Premiership football teams develop trends that can be detected using football stats.  These trends can be used to identify which teams may be good for swing trading on Betfair.  Recent games have identified some teams that look promising using stats.

There is a team that has not kept a clean sheet all season.  That’s 25 games and counting so far. Blackburn is the only premiership team to do this.  Blackburn FC is a good club for goal betting, because the stats indicate a big chance that there’s going to be goals.

What type of trades could be appropriate for Blackburn?

A 0 – 0 correct score lay, or a lay of any score line where Blackburn has zero goals.

Trading the draw would be a good idea for any match where Blackburn are the underdog or where the teams are equally matched.  When Blackburn concedes a goal the draw odds will swing in a profitable direction.

Man City score twice as many goals in the second half than goals in the first half.  A useful piece of information for traders who want to trade the 2.5 goals market.  Against a team exhibiting the right sort of stats a lay bet on ‘Over 2.5’ goals can be made at the start of the game.  The odds will lengthen through out the first half when no goal is scored.  Between the middle and end of the first half the trade can be hedged or ‘greened up’ for a profit.
