One thing that the Betfair Trading Community is known for is it's real and frank discussions about downswings. Unlike other sites and services in this industry we actually talk about this reality which we know our members thank us for because learning to deal with it can be the difference between making money and losing money trading.

French Open Final Rafa Nadal v Dominic Thiem Preview

You will hear a lot today about Thiem facing the toughest test in tennis, beating Nadal on clay at Roland Garros. Nadal has only lost twice in his 80+ matches at this tournament, once to Djokovic and once to Robin Soderling (remember him?). For me the most incredible statistic about Nadal's success is that this is his 11th final and he has won all 10 before this. To win every final of a Grand Slam 10 times in a row is an incredible effort.

As news broke today of a set-back in Andy Murray's recovery from his hip injury it got me thinking about life after he retires. It has been a tough year having no Murray matches to follow given how consitently he had made the latter stages of pretty much all tennis tournaments over the past decade. Murray's dogged style of never giving up but also taking his eye off the ball when ahead meant that for many of us Betfair Tennis traders he was a goldmine.

A lot can happen between now and the start of the season in September (injuries to key players being the biggest threat to any long term trades but this does allow for some quite juicy odds in a fairly wide open field this year.

As it is the end of the final international break before the World Cup begins in less than 80 days time I thought it would be good to do a preview of some of the teams who I think are value prices at the moment in the Betfair outright market. I'm looking for teams with the potential to trade lower during the tournament rather than teams who are favourite to win it.

With the imminent announcement of a Major League Baseball game being announced on British shores, it seems only right to preview the upcoming baseball season. Baseball is a sport that is hugely popular in America and has a decent following over here too, although, that has slowed down in recent years since it is no longer shown on one of the free to air channels. With a Yankees v Red Sox series headed to London I for one hope that the sport does grow here.
