Betting Diary Issue 5:
- Free Tips take a dive
- The Open
- Guaranteed winnings
Good month takes a turn for the worst
Last week I was banging on about how well our free tips were doing this month, as the winners were raining in!
Then all of a sudden we hit a brick wall with 8 losers!! 8 freaking losers on the bounce wiped out our profit for the month
But... yesterday we landed 2 winners at 9/4 and 3/1 which was a great relief!
Overal loss -£27.50
Just the 1 Big Bet on the Gee Gee's this week.
Most weeks I have a a small number of larger bets on a few horses, but this week I just haven't fancied much strongly enough to go big. The only horse I backed at £100 stakes was 'Dubai Prince'
Clearly a 2 horse race and at 6/4 I couldn't resist. I did study the form and summed up the pro's and con's.
It was also a B24NAP that day too.
I love golf, and this week we had The Open at St Andrews. Pre tournament we advised a bet on Adam Scott and Henrik Stenson.
Scott was right up there with a chance on the final day but the Victory went to Zach Johnson. Must admit, I didn't see that coming!
Few bets I had in play:
Phil Mickleson to beat Kaymer @ Evens £20 WON
Justin Rose to beat Fowler @ 11/10 £20 WON
Fowler to beat Rose @ Eve £20 LOST
Speith to beat Johnson @ Eve £20 LOST
Speith to beat Johnson @ 11/10 £20 WON
Slight profit on the match betting but lost on Stenson and Scott
I won't count any profits made through matched betting as it is in fact a GUARANTEED way to make money!
I have been following a site called ProfitAccumulator
Basically you sign up and they send you bookie offers and reload offers which allow you to make up too 2k per month!!
Overal, certainly not a week to shout about but thanks to the 1 big bet I had on 'Dubai Prince' I managed to turn out a profit! 🙂
