On the same subject of Newbies and scalping.
I have been Matched Betting for nearly a year and yesterday I tried BetAngel for the first time (with Betdaq). Using the one-click screen I made a trade with a profit of £1.20. I clicked 'Green' and this spread across the field with £0.12 on each horse. However, when the race started, these values fluctuated until, at the end of the race, all horses were at £0.00 except my original one which had returned to £1.20. It lost, so no profit made. What am I missing? Why did I not get a £0.12 profit?

Sounds like you didn't have the green up bet matched, only once the values below the selections names change have you been matched.
After that they'll be static in the trade profit column - unless you open another trade

I have seen a couple more videos since then. Do you match the Green Up bet by simply clicking anywhere in the trade profit column once the 'Green' box has been ticked?

Yes, but you also need to ensure it gets matched, ie, there are no unmatched bets showing at the bottom of the screen and all the p/l figures below the selections names are all the same and match what you see in your trade profit column
