Some Questions and Answers

QUESTION

Why does the results spreadsheet only go up as far as June 2012?

ANSWER

That’s when Geoff our resident daily blogger (and co-developer of ASP) retired from the ASP project. Geoff religiously recorded every game he did from early 2010 (15 months before ASP launched) to June 2012. I will be forever grateful to Geoff for creating such a comprehensive record and although the results on the sheet stop in June 2012, pretty much every conceivable game result and game development  you are ever likely to encounter would have been ASP’d during that period. Some of his original blogs have found their way into the Modules you see on site.

QUESTION:

Hi John

Thanks for the email about the Assured Soccer Profits. If using larger stakes is £50 – £70 possible (on average) each day?
thanks

ANSWER:

Yes but you really need to get comfortable with it first so that you don’t make any silly mistakes. The higher the stakes, the higher the liability and you know how Sod’s law is. It’s always going to throw some toughies at you early. On lower stakes this doesn’t seem so bad if it happens but on higher stakes early on it might put you off and then you miss out on the really easy long-term profits.

QUESTION:

The ASP system looks good, but I do have some questions.

How much are you actually staking for the trade for each game on the results page?

How much would I need to stake and what would be the average return per game with a betting Bank of £200?

How long does it take to complete the trade per game? There are a lot of games on most days on the results page, seems like a very time consuming system?

Do you have to be monitoring the game throughout the completion of the trade?

Is there any reason why you can’t use large stakes and trade just one game for the day or at the weekend if you are very limited on time?

Kind Regards,  Zed

ANSWER:

As we are in pre-launch there is little we can add at this stage to the information on the main page of the site but to give answer to your specific questions as best we can, Geoff stakes at (normally) around the £10/£11 mark, and the average return is exactly as per the spreadsheet results. Time consumption is more often than not typically 5 or 10 minutes of real activity per game and we use a site that alerts us to any further action needed as and when required. There is no reason why you couldn’t use larger stakes but we absolutely don’t recommend that until you are totally familiar with the system.

QUESTION:

Hello,

I should like to learn the new system you will be launching in the next few weeks.

I have no trading experience. Will it still be suitable for me?

Regards

Jacqueline


ANSWER:

It is our absolute belief that the book we produce combined with the very useful Betfair tutorials that all new users of Betfair have is more than enough to get you started with the Assured Soccer Profits System.


QUESTION:

Hi John

cheers

ANSWER:

You figure them out but it is so easy that you could get your family pet to do it for you.


 

QUESTION:

Hi John

Intersted in Assured Profit but on looking at the results, I see that there are a number of bets each day.  Does this mean you are at your computer for mush of the time?  I dont mind putting in some effert, but there is a limit.  What is the situation?

Hope you can help

regards

ANSWER:

Ken

I always find these questions a little hard to answer because I don’t really know what “much of the time means”. I ran it for an hour and a maybe three quarters yesterday, was on 7 games, and those games spanned 4.30pm to around 6pm/6.30pm so I was in attendance for 2 hours max. I didn’t sit there with my finger poised on a button for two hours, I was doing other things and because of the way we do this, I would have been alerted when action was needed.

It’s all relative, making money always requires some effort.


Question:

Hi John
Just a quick question – If this is being marketed to so many people, will the market liquidity not be affected, particularly during the ‘off season’ for the English leagues?  I’ve tried to trade some of these games and have noticed that this can be an issue, particularly with games from the middle east etc.
Thanks in advance for your prompt response.
Best regards
Chris

ANSWER:

We have taken liquidity in account and advise on this in the book.

    Hello John,

    is this system still up to date that we can make some profits after learning?
    I can see this is running a nice few years so I got a question in my head if it’s still usable, betfair is also improving etc.

    Thanks for your answer


    • John Duncan

      Absolutely still usable as the strategy is timeless.

    5 years and the edge has not been reduced? Unlikely if its a profitable system!


    • John Duncan
      1 year ago

      Why should it be unlikely? It’s a strategy that is not entirely dependent on the level of odds available to you. Odds come into it but are one of a number of factors therefore it keeps its edge. And as it uses a market with masses of liquidity, no pressure there either.

    Hello, do you think is possible to automate this system with Gruss, betangel or some similar software? Anyone did it?

      I haven’t personally ever attempted that but that doesn’t mean it isn’t possible.

    Hi Folks. I live in Brisbane, Australia. The time difference between here and UK is 10 to 11 hours. At the moment games that start at 3pm UK are kicking off anywhere from 11pm to midnight here. Would the system be suitable for us here in Australia. Midweek games seem to be starting at 5am but I have noticed some European games starting at 2am or 3 am. Also, is the system suitable for play on Smarkets?
    Thanks


    • John Duncan

      Hi Wayne

      Yes to both questions with some caveats. The first is that you need to check the availability of access to in-play markets where you are. I don;t keep up to date with Australia (as I don’t live there) but it used to be telephone only access in play in certain parts of Australia so you’d need to be sure you could access in-play on-line before you committed to ASP. As to Smarkets, check liquidity carefully before getting involved with real money and of course the in-play access.

    Is this system still a goer? With there no longer being a single AU on betfair?


    • John Duncan
      3 years ago

      Yes, All that’s happened is that 1 choice has become 3 choices. There are blogs and comments on the changes covering this.

    Hello,

    How big does your bank have to be to make 1000 pounds a month as with learning curve for an avrage individual.


    • John Duncan
      3 years ago

      Over time you should get a feel for your average profit per game (including taking off the losing ones of course) and then this should help you to dictate your bank. In the beginning, it is generally more common to say that you have X bank available and then to work on a maximum fixed liability as a percentage of bank per match accordingly. Rule of thumb, ideally, 10% of your bank exposed on one match is absolute maximum when learning and, ideally, 5% would be better. Typically, with few exceptions, the worst you should be doing, once bedded in, is losing around the equivalent of two games worth of profit on a loser and this should not happen more often than 2 in 10 or 3 in 10 if you really hit a bad streak.

      The occasional freaky game will come up where you could just throw your hands up and find yourself losing all of your AU liability but this should be extremely rare. Even then, over time, you should find better and better ways to recover even those disasters.

      I think to try to target an overall “per month” profit target is hard. What you would be better off doing is targeting for an increasing average profit per game. The difference between making £4 per game and £5 per game as an average is huge as a percentage over time.

    I have been using the ASP for two weeks now and noticed the
    increase in odds, especially in the AU segment. Time and time I have found
    a match which meets all the initial filters only to find the odds for
    AU are completely skewed.

    An example; match today with AU to back 5.5 to lay 26.00 and
    this is not an isolated case.

    It seems the liquidity is okay but getting the odds are the problem.

    Have you found this, John, since the launch?


    • admin

      Hi Brian

      I haven’t noticed any trend (of course, I have been away for the last 5 days) in this respect and there haven’t been enough purchasers to in any way have an impact on Betfair’s correct score market. It is probably simply an indicator of no real interest in those particular games. Liquidity is one aspect, another aspect is interest in-play and some games simply do not have any interest until or unless there is some action (a goal).

    Hi John,
    I have read your literature with some interest. I am almost a novice in this game but have got my fingers burnt in a laying system and quite frankly I do not want to repeat the experience. I am happy with betting per se and I do not want to make a fortune, but laying makes me nervous and from reading the comments it looks as though you are employing this. Would this be correct. Kind regards Tony

      Yes it does involve laying but not all laying is bad, depends how you do it/what you lay and we show you how to keep your liabilities under control.

    Hi John,

    Would you recommend the use of a betting tool such as Fairbot to help with the placing of bets and locking in of profits?

    Thanks,

      Not familiar with that particular one but providing they can cope with the job required, I don’t see why not.

    hi there, i’m very new to all this so do not understand some of the terminology. can you please explain what a betting exchange is as I am very interested in your system


    • admin
      6 years ago

      Dion

      A betting exchange is an on-line place where you go to make bets with other people instead of with a bookmaker but the principles are similar. On the one hand you can still make a traditional bet (bet that the outcome of an event will be X – say back Chelsea to win a football match) but unlike a bookmaker, you can also do what we call a lay bet which is to say (using my earlier example) that you bet that Chelsea WILL NOT WIN. In that case, if the match concerning Chelsea ended as a draw OR the other team won, then you’re bet is a winning bet. If Chelsea WON your bet is a losing bet.

      You don’t get to know who these other people are that you bet with you just enter an existing market for the event you wish to bet on, hence it is called a betting EXCHANGE. The exchange takes a small commission from all winning bets and for you to win a bet others in the exchange must lose. So, if you LAY Chelsea effectively saying they will not win, for that bet to happen others must be in the market to BACK Chelsea and cover your bet and say Chelsea will win. Now you have to imagine this happening over thousands of bets over hundreds of events every day.

      Best advice, go to http://www.profitmagnets.com and download the FREE betting exchange guide before getting the Assured Soccer Profit System. Also, join Betfair.com (it’s free to join) and watch their new member tutorials.

    Hi is this system about laying the draw because if it is i have already purchased that system


    • admin

      David,

      I launched the FCG strategy over 7 years ago now. I know that there are a lot of people out there even now launching supposed new strategies that are simple re-workings of that lay the draw back the draw original idea (which I developed) but honestly, I create and launch original works, have never copied anyone (which seems to be what most so called on-line marketeers do and would never insult my customers and followers by producing anything that is simply re-worked even if it was my own invention originally. The closest I would ever get to that is if I genuinely improved and dramatically changed something.
