Hedge 1-1




This Hedging strategy relies on a decrease in the odds of the 1-1 score line in the Correct Score market, after a goal is scored or two goals are scored to get the score to 1-1.

Whether you are a seasoned trader or a beginner, this strategy offers quite a safe way of trading.
Providing you stake correctly, you could make good percentage profits on your initial stake if you are able to Hedge using this strategy.

An advantage of this strategy is that it is a Bet First Hedge, rather than a Lay First Hedge.
Whenever you use a Lay First hedge (odds increasing), your profit will always be less than your original Lay stake, but with a Bet First hedge, (odds decreasing), your profit can be bigger than your original Bet stake.

If events go against you, a Dutching strategy is suggested to enable you to continue trading in the match.

Basic Strategy.

  • Before the kick-off, place a 1-1 Bet in the Correct Score market.

  • Place an Insurance Bet.

  • Whilst there are no goals, do nothing – you will break even.

  • After a goal is scored, Lay your original 1-1 Bet score line to profit if the Lay odds are lower than your original Bet odds.

Examples of risks.

  • A goal may be scored but the 1-1 odds may not shorten sufficiently to enable a successful Hedge.
    For example, the first goal may be scored very early in the game, or if the game is looking very one-sided, the market may judge that the losing side will not equalize to get the score to 1-1.

  • 2 quick goals scored by the same side can take the score to 2-0 or 0-2 before we have had time to place our 1-1 Lay or exit strategy bets whilst the score is 1-0 or 0-1.

This type of problem of course applies to other strategies.

If you were trading the Draw in the Match Odds market, a quick goal by both sides taking the score to 1-1, would cause trading problems.
