Trading on Over/Under Goals markets in betting exchanges can be very profitable if you apply this strategy well. The most popular market is 2.5 Goals. For this type of trading to work well you need to find a match between two low scoring teams. Appropriate teams will be with strong defense and relatively weak offense. Nice scenario for a match would be that one of these teams scores a goal in first 15 minutes and second goal is scored at least 10 minutes later after the first goal or isn't scored at all.
Bet placement can be divided in two parts:
Choose a match. Wait for a goal in first 15 minutes. When goal is scored odds for Under 2.5 goals will jump up. Back it. Don't trade if a goal is scored after first 15 minutes. Odds will rise by smaller amount and in a long term this strategy will not be profitable.
Wait for 5-10 minutes. Price will go down and now Lay in the same market. Use lower sum than when you Backed first to get profit on both results (over and under).
Most unsuccessful case would be that second goal is scored straightly after the first one. To avoid situations like this you need to avoid betting in active soccer matches. Also check statistics and previous meetings between chosen teams. Watch and analyze matches closely! If still you are stuck with your Back bet in match where first two goals were scored one after another, you have two options:
Trade out and take a loss.
If the match looks inactive and first goals looked like simply luck then you can wait for later minutes of soccer match and trade out with little loss or even some profit.
Summarizing all this you need to trade on low scoring teams, analyze them carefully and enter market only if a goal is scored in first 15 minutes.
