Week 5 bets

After the loosing week, let's see if we can turn things around.

I did place the following bets on the European tour @ Dubai Classic. The major of the middle east.
Win bets 0.5 pts per bet:
H. Stenson @ 13.
L. Oosthuizen @ 29 (Did not start)

Place 5 bets also 0.5 pts per bet:
L. Oosthuizen @ 6,6 (Did not start)
T. Fleetwood @ 14,2
E. Grillo @ 11
T. Olesen @ 14 (Missed cut)
N. Colsaerts @ 13

Place 10 bet 0.5 pts:
R. Rock @ 15

Update after cut: Only bets still can be won. That is a top 10 place for Rock and a Top 5 place for E. Grillo. I know still 36 holes to play but I can't imagine that Stenson wins the tournament. He is six shots behind.
Fleetwood already 9 shots behind fifth place. Colsaerts also 6 shots behind the predicted place, but he had his bad day already, made his cut, so he play without pressure and climb the ladder on moving day.

My 8 to wacth bets:
Wattel @ 17
E. Grillo @ 11
T. Pieters @ 11
Pepperel @ 14,2
Hatton @ 19
Broberg @ 41
Bjerregaard @ 81

Update after …

Week 4: first loosing week of the year

A loss of 5.84 pts means the first loosing week of the year.

21 bets played. 15 golf bets, 5 football bets and one tennis bet.
Only 2 winners. This was the fourth place of Eddy Pepperel at Qatar and a single bet on a football game.
Add this 9.38 pts pay-out to the return of 0,78 pts on the 5 goalscorer system bet and we have a combined return of 10,16 pts and a negative ROI of 36,5%.

You know what is frustating?
In the beginning of the year I did line up 8 players without a victory on the European tour. All promising players. Having the idea the bet on these player. I was still working out how I would bet on them, besides the regular golf bets.
If I would have played these from the beginning of the year I would have made a profit of 21,5 pts.
I will be betting on these players, each tournament this will play this year. On each of them a 0.5 pts bet for a top 5 place.

Good luck,

Week 3 recap: second profit in a row!

Let's start with the figures:
Bets placed: 17Total Ante: 14,25 ptsReturn: 21,21 ptsP/L: + 6,96 ptsROI: 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…

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…
