Premium Football Trading provides trading tips directly to your inbox with an aim of at least 20% profit on your bank each month.
They focus exclusively on European football matches and they are all major games to ensure there is enough liquidity available on Betfair for members to trade comfortably.
The strategy is simple and is detailed in a number of steps that tell you exactly what bets you need to place, both pre-match and in-play. There are set moves to make depending on the score, so you always know what to do in each match.
The service has been live since November 2021 and has amassed 92.28 points profit from three trading methods.
Having the same clear instructions to use for every match meant that we were able to set up BF Bot Manager to automate the system for us fairly easily.
Once we had it up and running, we entered the selections each day for a month. Read on to see how we got on, including our full results from the bot.
We lost a total of 66.52 points during a period of one month in our Premium Football Trading review, which is a 44.3% decrease to our starting bank of 150 points.
The main cause of the high losses were the 0-0 results, as in this scenario there would often be 12-15 points at risk. There were several 0-0's in the month that we were testing the system so it made quite a difference to our results.

There were a couple of issues with Premium Football Trading that led to our decision of a fail rating.
The reasoning behind setting a bot up to run this system was because we found it quite time consuming to follow the system manually. On a busy Saturday, there could be 10 or more selections to keep track of.
Although the steps were quite simple to follow, it still meant we had to check and place bets in each of the matches at half time, at various times of the day depending on the kick off time.
For example, last Saturday there were kick off times of 12:30, 14:30, 15:00, 16:30, 17:00, 17:30, 19:30 and 20:00. That means you really have to be on the ball to make sure you don't miss any out, possibly setting alarms for each one.
The bot set up worked well to solve this problem, as we just needed to load the matches in each morning and let it do it's thing. No more alarms needed!
Unfortunately the results did not go so well, as mentioned earlier, because of the 0-0 results wiping out profit.
The system required a second half goal in order to be profitable in most cases and liabilities could be quite high, with a maximum risk of 8 points from the final bet. This added to any liabilities from the first half could end up being 10% of the bank at risk on one trade.
The official results show how volatile things can be, with profit reaching highs of 130+ points and then dwindling down to around 30 points, then climbling back up again. At the time this review was written, the total profit was at 50.62 points.
There's no telling where it would go from there!
It was a shame that this system did not work out for us and we hoped that perhaps with some tweaks to it, we might be able to arrange a re-trial in the future.
