I hope you have been able to follow my dip into the French Open tennis this week in lieu of any solid tradeable football.
Here’s a look at the 2 trades we want to see . The n trade and the u trade.
The n trade.
It’s simply really. We back a tennis favourite in trouble. Usually said player will have lost the first set, as Elise Mertens did below. Back her at her high of 1.78 and, hopefully, watch the n take shape.
The n begins. The sign of a successful back to lay trade in tennis ( and all other sports of course!)
The U trade
In this case, we have a strong underdog performing out of her skin. She reached an initial high of 6.5 and looked , after winning the first set, to be winning the 2nd set. She was layable at 1.12 odds or shorter. We need the very short priced favourite to show something here.
The U shape suggests the short priced favourite is fighting back!. Indeed she wins the 2nd set and the fully formed U shape signals Lay to back trade success.
When 2 becomes 2 to 1
Aslan Karatsev is strong favourite here . But noone told Phillip Kohlschreiber about this!
Men’s Grand Slam tennis is unique in that is can be best of 5 sets.
So, any player, particularly a favourite 2-0 down, will have to win the next set in order to retain an interest in the tournament!
So, back Karatsev 2-0 down and back him to cash out at 2-1
This has a 100% record this French Open so watch out for it at the next Grand Slam at Wimbledon.
There’ll be no live chat webinars this weekend as we are in footballing limbo prior to the Euro 2020 kick off in a few days time.
