Week 3 recap: second profit in a row!

Let's start with the figures:
  • Bets placed: 17
  • Total Ante: 14,25 pts
  • Return: 21,21 pts
  • P/L: + 6,96 pts
  • ROI: 48,84%.

Second week in a row with a profit. Couldn't start the year better. While there was profit, it was a bad week.
Only 1 winning bet. Namely the place bet on Thomas Pieters.
All other golf bets didn't return anything.
On the football market is was a week without any winning bet. Played 5 bets. All non system bets had one correct prediction on the ticket.
It could have been otherwise, but Club Brugge missed chance after chance, resulting in 2 loosing tickets.
A beginner error I guess, when playing 5 tickets it is not done, to have 1 match on 3 of them.

The system goalscoring bet was maybe the most disappointing one of the all. Only a return of 0,71 pts.

Still satisfied with the profit, for sure cause it was the second week in a row since the new betting plan. Still to early to draw any conclusions. Profit for the year at the moment is 15,18 pts.
Should help if I could place a winning ticket on my Bwin account, where the money is drying out.

I also will try to stay away from the Australian open, due to not enough knowledge from tennis anymore.

Will try to place my golf bets, tomorrow evening!

Good luck,

I'm fed up with being a loosing sportsbetter ...

... time to turn things around!

But how? That's the question!

Looking back!

Don't know how long I'm playing with sportsbetting, but for around a year of 10!
I have tried doing my researches before placing bets, setting up a bankroll management, spreading my bankroll over different bookmakers, grinding the internet for golden tips, doing an analysis of my previous bets and tons of other things. But still I have to admit that I'm a loosing gambler.
While my antes are on the low side, I did had some great winnings! Look for instances at my winning supertoto tickets!

Where did it go wrong?

Most of the time it was just pure discipline!  Forgetting my own bankrule management, placing impulsive bets, betting on markets not known to me.
The combination of the 3 is killing.

What did I do correct?

I did manage to set up a bankroll management.
I never played with money needed for real live expenses.
I do understand how bookmakers work and what the odds do mean!
I'm not addicted! I can do without sports betting but I have to admit that I do find it a challenge!

The current situation!

I do have a limited bankroll for the moment at 2 online bookmakers. In my case this is Unibet and Bwin. At the moment of writing my bankroll is: 48,24 euros.
Do the fact that I live in a country where sportsbetting is allowed and more or less controled by the government only a limited set of bookies is available. But I'm satisfied with these 2. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. I'll have to do with them.

Unfortunately my online wallet is empty. I'm willing to fund this wallet once more this year, but that will be it.

Where do we go from here?


I will limit the sports I will be regularly betting on to 2! Football (soccer) and Golf.
I will again start with recording my bets in a spreadsheet.
I will do a research before placing the bets between the odds my 2 bookmakers are offering for most bets. Due to minimal bet rules on Bwin, this will not be possible for the system bets I will be placing. Minimal bet @ Unibet is only 0,10 euros, while Bwin has a minimal bet of 1 euro.

Here I will limit myself to only tournaments. Place or win bets are allowed on both the PGA and European tour. Per tournament max 1 win and 2 place bets. In general it will be, 0,5 euros for the win, 1 euro for a place bet. So max 2,5 euros per tournament. 5 euros per week.
When it is a co-sanctioned tournament, it will be 2 win and 4 place bets.

Here I will allow myself some freedom.
I will however minimalize the competitions I will select my games from to: Bundesliga, Premier League, Ligue 1, Serie A, Eredivisie, La liga, the Jupiler Pro League and cup matches of these leagues. Off course, the Champions League and European league are also valid markets.

I still need to work out which bets I will play. 

American Football:
Only NFL, only 1 bet per week, with an ante of 1 euro. Maximum 2 games combined on the ticket.

Major sporting tournaments:
Will depend on the tournament and sport type. But these will not be ruled out.

I just need to stay away from regular competitions in others sports.


The only way for me to keep my focus and restrain to my betting rules, is also to blog.
I was doubting about starting a complete new blog, of reviving this one. I decided to re-animate this one, cause it is already know with the search engines.
I will try to write some previews for the bigger sport tournaments and will be updating my stats, profit ans losses and so on.

Also I will try to create a top set of other gambling punter websites which are transparent which their predictions in advance and a result page.
This will be done for Football betting and Golf betting.

Also I will try to work out some betting articles.

Fine-tunning the page lay-out.


Make a profit on the end of the year, betting wise.
Still blogging at the end of the year.

All things above are just guidelines and will be fine tunned during the year.
Also, things can change due to an increase of the bankroll. I will set-up my betting rule during the year, see what works and what doesn't.

Good luck,

Recap: Match day2

Again no winning ticket. Have to remind myself that it is a marathon and not a 100 meter dash.

JLP8 1X2: 2 wrong. The first one is my own fault. Originally I did put a 1X on Genk - Cercle, but changed it into 1 to increase the odds. A stupid beginner mistake. The victory of Westerlo at Charlerloi was a complete surprise to me. It is the first time since the new competition format that a promoted team wins its first 2 matches. (avg odds.  19.94)

JPL5 R: Just like the first match day one wrong. This time it was the over 2.5 bet for Oostende - Anderlecht. Still I have faith in this betting type. (Avg odds 4.15)

JPL CS: At half time my correct score prediction was spot on, but Westerlo decided to score 2 extra :(. (avg. odds: 9.5)

JPL 2 SP: Due to the fact that Suarez didn't start the game the odds were decreased to 2,38. While Mboyo gave an assist, he didn't netted one. (Avg Odds: 6.74)

JPL 2 CS: This one is just a lottery. Hope that I can win one of these this season. (Avg odds: 59.62)

Stats JPL so far:
Home win: 10 (62.5%)
Draw: 2 (12.5%)
Away win: 4 (25%)

Home team scores: 13 (81.25%)
Away team scores: 9 (56.26%)
Both team score: 7 (43.75%)

No goal: 1 (6.25%)
O 0.5: 15 (93.75%)
O 1.5: 12 (75%)
O 2.5: 7 (43.75%)
O 3.5: 5 (31.25%)

Most frequent scores:
1-0: 3 (18.75%)
3-1: 3 (18.75%)
0-2: 2 (12.5%)
2-0: 2 (12.5%)
