Week 1: "The easiest $320 of my life" | My Sports Betting Journey with Oddshero and Trademate

TOTAL PROFIT: $2,226 | TOTAL INVESTMENT: $1,595 | 11/2/20 - 19/2/20

It was a decent first week using both the Oddshero and Trademate Sports betting softwares simultaneously!

Unfortunately I forgot to track my exact results with Trademate, but I estimate I lost somewhere around $150-$200. I will make sure to track this in the future!

But Matched Betting with Oddshero saved me, as I was able to turnover my sign-up bonus with Leo Vegas to make the easiest $320 of my life!

The best part was that it only took me 2 hours to turn it over!

Check out my Week 1 thoughts and results using Oddshero here.



Thanks to my work with Oddshero, I now have an extra $320 to play with when I’m value betting with Trademate.

As I said last week, Leo Vegas uses the same odds as Unibet, so to account for them inside the software, I simply added another 3,000kr to my Unibet starting balance and then picked a random game from the game centre to account for the money I made with Oddshero. See photo.

Straight away my journey is going to plan, cashing in on bookie sign-up bonuses with Oddshero, which ends up giving me a bigger bankroll to use for Trademate.

And as we all know, a bigger bankroll with Trademate means bigger profits!


Although I’m losing overall with Betfair, they have now limited my stakes to the point where it doesn’t make sense to bet with them anymore.

The only trades where they are allowing me to place a stake over $10 is on Soccer 1x2.

So as you saw with my presets last week, I have made a special preset for that and I have also disabled the Recommend Leagues filter because I really don’t mind if my account gets fully limited at this stage.

Because of this, I have decided to withdraw most of my Betfair funds ($135) and put it into Coolbet, leaving myself with $75 to play around with in my Betfair account.

The reason I chose Coolbet as the bookie to deposit more money into is because my account was running low and out of all the bookies I use, they give me the most trades.

Like I stated above, I forgot to track my results using Trademate this week, but I estimate that I lost somewhere between $150-$200.

I’m not really worried about this at all, this is just variance playing it’s part, especially since I’m over-performing at the moment.

The most important thing to look at when your results aren’t going as good as they should be is the Closing EV (green line).

As long as that green line continues to move upwards, then I know I’m doing the right thing and eventually things will turn around.
