Football behind Closed Doors: is Betting on Draws still profitable?

Should I stay or Should I go? Should I Back or Lay the Draw?

After 1000 games played in the best football leagues, you would have returned a good profit.

7.5% Yield and 70+ units of Profit in just over 40 days.

Betting on all the Draws would have been a simple and profitable strategy in the early stages of the New Football in empty stadiums, as I believed when I wrote on How to bet in the New Football with a profitable strategy.

However, even if you feel strong when the market is wrong, you do not know how long.

Therefore, if you want to bet right, you need to know when to stay and when to walk away.

The breakeven streak in the past two weeks makes you think. It is more than 700 games and could be a wake-up call.

As far as I know, it is always better to build the ark before the rain comes.

Even more so in the unknown field of matches behind closed doors.

So, rather than continuing to bet on the Draw for each game, I think the time has come to be more selective.

Thus, in a too little explored Football behind closed doors, I started tinkering by trial and error, doing what I could with what I had; that is the sample of those 1000 games played.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going.

I found a sweet spot where Mr. Market still seems to offer excellent bargains and with a surprisingly affordable Maximum Drawdown considering that the average closing odds are quite high.

Too good to be true or too good you can’t ignore it?

Meanwhile, following the wise advice to strike while the iron is hot, I set up a strategy around that sweet spot.

Posterity will judge.
