Good way to end the year

Not sure how I've managed it but I've managed to scrape another profit over the last couple of days.

Didn't hit too many winners at all but the ones that did win were decebt prices and were picked a few times and luckily for me, a small profit was made.

I'll post up any bets for the weekend on Friday.

Tuesday Bets

Another very busy day tomorrow during this busy period. Finding it really difficult to keep everything up to date and get my bets on as well as keep the blog up to date but just about managing it. I think the fact I'm doing OK at the moment is helping enormously!

Good luck.

Good start to a busy period.....

A nice start yesterday with a profit on most of the systems. The day ended up hinging on whether Stoke would beat Blackburn and thankfully, they won 2-0 in the end.

It wasn't far off a much better day as I had a decent stake on Leicester to beat Leeds and after fighting back from 2-0 down, they couldn't find a winner for me.

It's a busy period and there is another set of games tomorrow, so I'll be post up my system bets later tonight. Let's hope I can keep some momentum going over the next week or so.

Boxing Day Bets

I was up early this morning, placing my footie bets for today. It's a very busy day today, so I'm expecting a swing in my P&L, one way or another!

Let's hope it's a good day.....

Last Weekend Update

I spent a while last week placing all the bets before last weekend, knowing there was a chance most of the games would be called off. As it turned out, only 4 of the games I bet on went ahead and none of my teams won.

As for Boxing day, there is a whole list of bets thrown up but I'll wait and see what games are still on when I get up on Boxing Day before I place any bets. Don't want to go down the road of placing a lot of bets just for the games to be called off again.

So, I'll be back Boxing Day with the system bets on here.

Weekend Bets

Short of time again (you can see the way my life works through this blog!) but here's the bets I placed last night from the system bets. Placed the bets knowing many would be off but will have no time tonight or tomorrow to place any, so I was sort of forced to do it last night.

Fingers crossed for a good weekend!

Recent Results

I feel like I'm not really using this blog at the moment as I can't get time to write anything up that anyone would like reading and as happened this midweek, I couldn't even get time to post up my bets before the games took place! There was only one bet in midweek and it was proofed as usual.

In a way, the blog isn't serving me much purpose as due to a lack of time, I'm not really writing a proper blog (more like a results diary!). However, I still think that if my work life ever settles back down again, I will get back posting regularly and more importantly I guess, I will share some thoughts on the future and how things are shaping up.

Anyway, until that time comes, I just need to be content with posting up what the system bets are and the results. If nothing else, having the blog is really helping me keep my discipline this season and that's one reason I started the blog. When things were going badly wrong a few weeks ago, knowing I was posting my results on here, I kept the head and didn't do anything rash. I took time to step back, analyse the systems, launch new systems a little earlier than I wanted to on here but thankfully, I'm seeing the benefit of my hardwork paying off. Long may it continue!

The results from the weekend and Tuesday night are below. Overall, it's a nice profit and things appear to be quite stable at the moment again which is good news.

When time allows (I'm off between Christmas and New Year), I will post up some analysis of the systems and how they have performed etc. I track everything very closely and do share lots of the work in the TFA forum as many in there follow my footie systems but trying to get time to post anything these days is difficult.

Anyway, it will soon be the weekend which means another set of matches. I don't want to even attempt to predict the weather this weekend, so I'll keep quiet!

I'll post up my bets for the weekend on Friday.

Another Busy Weekend

Well, I should give up my attempts at weather forecasting as most of the games are on this weekend!

It's a very busy weekend again for me. I've taken a chance this weekend and played slightly higher stakes on system 16 as the bets appear on system 22 as well as system 8, so I'm hoping that's a good signal and I feel like system 16 can do with a good win! Let's hope it's today as I could do with one myself!

Fingers crossed for a good weekend.

Weekend Update

With the weather the way it is at the moment, I can't imagine we'll get too many full fixture lists for a while but considering the way the footie has been going, that's probably not a negative for me!

Anyway, the weekend past wasn't too bad but I made another small loss.

My overall P&L for the season on the footie has taken a substantial knock over the past month or so but I try my best to not look at things on a daily basis. On a monthly basis, it hasn't been too bad.

In addition, when you consider the P&L by system, some of the systems I'm following this season have done really well and therefore, it does provide hope for the future as this season has all been about trying to find something to work on the footie. I reckon I'm much closer to finding something to work now than I was at the start of the season, so that's a good way to look at things so far.

Anyway, I'll be back later this week with any bets for this weekend.

Here are the system bets for this weekend. Bit a of rush job today as I was out last night and didn't want to place the bets until this morning as I knew most of the games I found would be off anyway. Apologies to those waiting on them. The email has gone out also.

Poor Weekend

Really been short of time this week so far but here's an update of how last weekend went. Another bad weekend really and I'm glad to see the back of November.

Here's the results from the weekend. I don't have time for a proper review of the month I'm afraid and I'll probably struggle to get time over the next couple of weeks with work being so busy.

I'll try to do a quick post when I post up the next set of bets showing how November went for the systems.

Weekend Bets

A few key games for me this weekend but I would love to see a win for Sheff Utd and a win for Oldham this weekend. In addition, if God is looking down on me, a win for Kilmarnock would also help me along!

I'm continuing on with system 16, even though it has been on a dreadful run since I started following it. In a way, I wish I'd never looked back at the multiples to see how they performed in the past as I'd be much better off this season but hindsight is wonderful as you know. In addition, if I'd looked back at multiples from last season and followed them from the start of this season, I'd be in profit.

Choosing when to start following a system isn't easy but in my opinion, if a system has an edge long-term, when you decide to start following shouldn't matter too much. Ultimately, the results are not correlated on a week to week basis, so just because a system is on a great run, it doesn't mean it has to end soon. In this case though, I can't help but feel I jumped on this at a peak given what has happened since!

Anyway, we'll see what this weekend brings.

Back To Black

Well, as the title suggests, the systems made a good profit in midweek. No idea why being in profit is being in the black as it's really being in the green on my sheet now I think about it!

It was a good night with a few systems having a very profitable night in particular. System 22 hit 4 winners from 4 selections for a 7.35pts profit on the evening.

The disappointment of the evening was system 16 and it continues to frustrate. As you will recall, this is a multiple bet system that had produced very smooth returns over a 4 year period and even in the first part of this season when I wasn't staking money on it.

Since I've started staking money on system 16, the results overall have nosedived and simply, if you win back teams to win in single bets, you'll never win backing them in multiple bets unless you get very lucky!

I figured the system would need a bank of 500pts and ultimately, 1/5 of that bank is now gone. It isn't the worst run ever but it is the 4th worst run now!

Anyway, I can't moan too much about a profitable midweek and I will see what this weekend brings. I'll post up the bets tomorrow.

Same Old Story - Into The Red

Not much to say about the weekend past apart from the losing run continues and there is a lot of red in my P&L results. :(

I've not got much time to dwell on it as I need to post up tonight's games but overall, the multiple bets lost 26pts and the single bets lost 5pts. The new systems 21-23 did OK though, so there is some hope for the future I think!

I'll be back in a bit with tonight's games.

Significant Weekend...

I can't help but feel this weekend carries a great amount of significance in the overall profitability of this season. I'm shelling out a very large proportion of my bank this weekend, so I can do with a good day.

I'm playing reduced stakes this weekend on the new systems 21-23 and this new staking system will remain in place until I gain back some confidence in these systems. I still think these systems will turn out to be profitable in the long-run but I'm happy to see some results before I start increasing stakes.

I feel like I'm due a decent win on the permutation bets and therefore, I have kept these stakes fairly high this weekend evn after a bad run. Since I've been doing these from a few weeks ago, it has coincided with a blip in the results and obviously, if the singles aren't making money, the perm bets can't make any money either and worse still, the losses soon mount up. I'll keep the faith though as I suggested a 500pt bank was needed, so plenty of time left for the system to turn around.

Anyway, I'll see what happens this weekend.

Change of Direction Needed!

Apologies for the delay in posting the weekend's results. Anyone reading the blog will know it was a massive loss and it always seems easier to update the blog after good results.

Hard to know what to say about the weekend really. System 6 only lost 0.5pts but I stake much more on other systems! :(

System 7 lost nearly 6pts and system 8 lost 3.5pts. Even system 9 lost 1pt.

The new system 16 had a nightmare with losses of 43.5pts from 46pts staked. Not very good at all.

I've been waiting until the right moment to launch systems 21-23 publicly but now seems as good a time as any. They have been doing very well this season without me putting any money on them and therefore, I will start following them from this weekend and start getting them proofed by the SBC.

Systems 17-20 are still in development but these will be other multiple systems (like system 16) based on systems 6-10 and systems 21-25. I will be playing them to small stakes once the systems are developed early next year.

At the moment, I'm not 100% sure what sort of staking level I will be using from this weekend going forward with so many bets but I will be staking more on systems 8 and 22/23 going forward as these have historically the best results.

One other thing I should mention is that I have also been looking at the performance of systems 6-9 with systems 21-23 and what happens if bets appear on each system. I don't have detailed results to share at the moment but I'm looking at another 6 systems based on if a team appears on both systems.

These systems will be 6-21,7-21,6-22,7-22,8-21 and 8-22. Therefore, when a team appears on system 6 and 21, it will then become known as a 6-21 bet. Hence, these systems will now be proofed from this weekend also although I can't be bothered pasting up the bets separately as I can't do everything. In addition, I won't get around to looking at the results in detail until after Christmas for anyone who's interested. I do expect these new 6 systems to be the best single systems and obviously, I would expect system 8-22 to be the best system but until I get all the past results etc. it is just a hypothesis.

Anyway, I'll be updating the blog later this week with the weekend bets. Here's the mess from last weekend.

Last Chance Saloon

I've been thinking about adjusting my staking again as I'm not comfortable with the amounts I'm shelling out each week on systems 6 and 7 and also the new permutation system 16.

I'm thinking of investing more of my portfolio in system 8 in particular as it looks a very steady system and the returns so far have been very good. I'll stick with my current staking plan for this weekend anyway.

Good luck for a busy weekend.

Worst Loss Ever!

As the title of the post indicates, it's my worst loss this season. Thankfully, I don't play the same stakes on multiple bets as single bets!

The single bets lost a tiny 0.25pts this midweek but the multiple bet got 1 from 5 correct for a substantial 28pt loss! As I say, you really need to divide the profits/losses on this system by 10 to get anything meaningful. Still, a 2.8pt loss isn't much better!

I'll be back with any bets for the weekend later.

Busy Midweek

A very busy midweek card this week with plenty of bets. I've even got my first real multiple bet in live play this week. Not 100% sure I'm staking this properly in my portfolio but hopefully once I get some profits under my belt it will get easier staking decent amounts on multiples. Simply, the past results indicate that I shouldn't have much to worry about.

A nice Saturday

A great day yesterday and although I didn't really fancy Hearts myself today, they beat a poor Hibs side to complete a very good weekend for the systems. I’m now back in front of where I was before last Saturday’s disaster!

Motherwell and Kilmarnock were both good winners in the SPL for me on saturday. The biggest le tdown were Fulham as they appeared on a fair few systems but they were held at home to Aston Villa.

The new multiple system got off to a losing start with only 1 of the games correct but that's not too bad. When looking at the results, you'll need to remember that system 16 is playing to a 500pt bank rather than a 50pt bank as some systems are, so the returns really need to be divided by 10 for comparison purposes.

Weekend Bets

Short of time as usual. Here are the bets from the systems for this weekend.

I have added a new multiple system which is called system 16. It is actually one of 5 multiple systems I am working on in the background but this is the first system to go live. The other systems will be ready at the start of 2011 I think. I'm very close to finalising systems 21-23 also, so they'll start within the next week or two.

Good midweek!

Apologies for the lack of updates again. Struggling for much time at the moment again due to being busy at work.

It was a good night on Tuesday with a profit of 6.8pts which recovers some of the damage from last weekend.

I had bets on 6 games and got 4 winners, 1 draw and 1 loser. I wish every day was as good as this on the footie!

I'll be back soon with some bets for the weekend.

Statistics don't lie!

I was planning on writing my monthly review after updating my weekend results in a post but I think that would be doing the systems a disservice this month after what happened at the weekend. Therefore, I'll cover both off in the same post as the weekend results are part of the monthly results! In addition, if I look at things over a calendar month instead of just concentrating on the weekend, it will help focus my mind!

The Weekend

A loss of 11.1pts on the weekend. Another disaster really with a shocking performance from all the systems. Unfortunately, the biggest losses were on systems 7 and 8 which is where my staking is biased towards, so it wasn't a good weekend at all.

Sunderland was a massive game on Sunday as if they had lost, the systems would have lost over 20pts on the which would have been a much bigger disaster!

The games and the results are included in the monthly report below which shows all the bets in the month, so I won't post them twice.

October Review

Firstly, the positives. A profit of 18.6pts from 163 games in total. Another great performance this month from the systems although the rollercoaster has been unreal. The month started well with the best day the systems have ever had I think and then it has been all downhill from there. Even so, standing back and looking at it now, a good profit has been made and therefore, I can't be too disappointed.

System 6 has made a profit of 5.8pts from 92 games. Again, not a great ROI but then again, it isn't really a system that is meant to produce a high ROI as it is a high turnover, low ROI system.

System 7 has made a profit of 8.17pts from 46 games. A really decent ROI for any footie system I think and a great month for this system.

System 8 has made a profit of 2.44pts from only 23 games. Slightly disapointing returns from this system this month but then again, it's another good profit in the bank and it beats losing!

System 9 only had 2 bets in the month and made a profit of 2.2pts as both bets won. This system hasn't really had too many bets yet this season but it is doing enough to wash it's own face I think!

Overall then, 2 months into the season and a profit of 24,6pts from 285 games. Not as good as I hoped at this point in the season but when you look at it by system, there is a lot of hope for the future. Systems 7 and 8 in particular are doing very well and the ROI is simply being dragged down overall by the low ROI of system 6 which isn't too surprising based on historical results.

I think it is a promising start and gives us really good building blocks for the future.

I'm getting very close to being able to launch the next set of TFA systems into the live world. They have been doing OK this season so far in the background and will soon make their way out here to be proofed. All my system results are being proofed by the SBC this season and that includes some other systems that aren't being trialled on here. None have done well that well though (tiny profit overall) and are all being dropped so I can concentrate on these systems on here!

Systems 21-23 will be with you soon.

This week's bets

Below are the bets for this weekend. Definitely helps having a couple of Premiership bets in there for decent stakes in terms of placing the bets. The bookies seem to take these bets easily in one lump sum which saves me some time.

Was OK with getting on again this week in the main. Had to split Hayes and a couple of others but in the main, the bookies still appear to be taking all the bets I want which is good news.

I've been pleasantry surprised about how easy it has been to get the bets on each week for the stakes I'm using but I know it can change very quickly possibly. I think spreading the bets around so much definitely helps and not following any tipsters or using my accounts for horse-racing also helps. I suspect I just look like an average punter playing on the footie each week for a few bets at decent stakes.

This is actually the least I've laid out for a few weeks which is good as I feel fairly comfortable laying this amount out nowadays. Didn't think I'd be saying that at the start of the season but it's amazing how playing with winnings can change your mentality so much.

Good luck.

Weekend Update

A good day yesterday got me back on track and overall, it was pretty close to being a break-even weekend for me. The systems made a profit of 0.13pts which after Saturday's performance, is quite good!

The big game for me yesterday was Arsenal on a couple of systems, so it was nice to see Man City reduced to 10 men so early on!

Overall, an OK weekend and it stops a poor run of form for the systems. I think that’s the way the football betting tends to go whereby you make nothing most weeks and then a good weekend will come when I make a good profit but a bad weekend is as likely to come along and wipe out some profits also. Hence, when you make a little on a weekend or break-even, I can’t knock it.

Saturday Loss

Not fully up to date with my results and I won't have time until Monday now to post anything up.

However, today was a really bad again again and the systems are going through a sticky spell. Nothing is out of the ordinary though when compared to the past, so it's important that we all stick with the plan!

Still got a few decent looking bets tomorrow I think, so plenty of opportunity to get out break-even I think this weekend.

I'll post up how tomorrow goes when I get time.

Friday, 22 October 2010

Fingers crossed for a good weekend!

Below are my bets for the weekend. Another very busy weekend this weekend.

Had next to no trouble placing my bets last night (must be after last week's disaster!) but I'm trying to utilise my accounts just a tiny bit more now, so you'll see I placed some with Betfred, Boyles etc. as I try to make use of the fact I have 16 unrestricted accounts at the moment. Obviously, it won't take long for these guys to close me down if I win I suspect but we'll see what happens.

Fingers crossed for a good weekend as I can do with one after last weekend!

Not much happening in midweek I'm afraid. A small loss overall due to Sunderland losing mainly.

Terrible Weekend

Struggled to get time to update my results this weekend as I was feeling terrible yesterday as a result of a very bad hangover. I wasn't sure I was going to go out on Saturday night but after hearing how bad my football bets did from a mate via a text, it was an easy decision to go out and get trashed!

A shocking day on Saturday and undoes a bit of the good work done by the systems earlier this month. I seemed to pick so many teams that were winning at half-time but they threw the game away in the second half. I can pick out Northampton (3-0 up at half-time and lost 4-3) and Hamilton (2-0 and drew 2-2) as obvious cases but there were many others who were 1-0 up at half-time and they either lost or drew the game.

Not much I can do about it though and hopefully Saturday was a blip rather than a trend.

School Boy Error!

Well, after my school boy error last week, I did the same again this week and lumped on the wrong team in one of the games. The only difference is I spotted it this time!

Below are the bets for the weekend. A whole host of games again which means it is likely to be a big swing either up or down but we'll see what happens. I feel a small correction may be due as the systems are outperforming the past but we'll see what happens.

10% return on the weekend

A really strange day today where I made a few errors with my own bets I placed and only ended up with a 10% return on the weekend. I say that slightly tongue in cheek as I'd take that every weekend!

The systems had another remarkable day and a profit of 9.22pts was achieved from staking only 21 points.

Slightly annoyed that I didn't capitalise on it myself as much as I should have done but not too concerned!

Quiet Weekend.....(or is it?)

Apologies for the lack of posts on the blog again. Work has been in the way again this week and it's hard to see when that may reduce in the near future, so this place will suffer a little until things get back to normal at work.

I wasn't expecting a busy weekend this weekend but there is enough to keep me interested I think.

It's funny how winning can change your mentality with gambling. When I was placing these last night (a few more restrictions than before but I got on easy enough as any that had restrictions, I was able to get the same price elsewhere), I wasn't worried about the amount I was staking.

Although I probably laughed it off on here last week, I was worried about the fact I was staking so much in one weekend. Clearly, betting banks are there for a reason and they should be used but staking 60%+ of your bank on the line in one weekend is a lot!

Last night, once I'd finished up and counted how much I had staked, it didn't feel like much at all. It's amazing how playing with winnings can change your mentality.

Good luck.

Nice Graph.......

There are no midweek bets this week.

I’m really pleased to have a quiet midweek as I’m away to Ireland tomorrow for work. Have to go and visit a partner across there tomorrow. It’s my first visit to Ireland, so looking forward to it although it will be a long day!

When things settle down at work, I’ll be looking to post some analysis up of the season thus far. I’ll be interested to see my P&L by league as well as seeing how each of the individual systems are doing this season compared to previous seasons

In the meantime, I thought I’d share this graph with you. The more and more I think of Saturday, the more I think that I won’t be able to beat that day but we’ll see what happens.

Won't forget this day for a while......

I think for the first time since I’ve had the blog, I can just post up the picture of how the day went and I don’t need to say much more!

A totally unbelievable day where the rating systems did remarkably well and every system produced a great profit to some degree.

This really is the stuff dreams are made of I think and this has made all my hard work during the summer worth it.

I also need to say that it gives me great satisfaction to know that some others are following my selections also on the TFA forum and there are a few stories on there of people having the best football betting day they’ve had for a long time, so I’ll sleep well tonight I think.

I feel like today is a massive release of pressure for me and I’m not sure I’ll get this feeling too often while betting on football as the returns don’t tend to be too much in any one day. I’ll never forget this day for a long-time though!

What implications this has on my future betting accounts I'm not sure as a few bookies have been hit badly today for decent losses, so I'll need to see how they react. Hopefully they'll think it was a fluke. Maybe it was? We'll find out in future.

I had 4 bets with Corals today and all 4 won for a profit of £775. They are the only bookie to restrict me thus far (twice now) and after today, I'm not sure what will happen going forward.

Let's hope things can continue like this for the remainder of the season!

For the record, system 6 made a profit of 10.5pts from 21 games. System 7 made a profit of 11.9pts from 14 games. System 8 was the star again with a profit of 6.49pts from 7 games and system 8 had 1 from 1 correct for a profit of 1pt.

Doesn't get much better than this I think.....

September Review and Weekend Bets

This post is split into the review of September and the bets for this weekend. No point in two separate posts as there isn't much to say in the review.

September Review

I'm not going to write too much for the first monthly review. To be honest, there isn't a lot to write about and you can't draw too many conclusions from only 122 bets this month.

In summary, the systems as a whole have made a profit of 6.01pts this month which is decent enough. I've managed slightly better than that as I stake more on systems 8/9 than I do on systems 6/7 but overall, a decent enough start.

System 6 broke even from 63 bets which isn't great for the first month but then again, it isn't the best system historically, so maybe not too surprising.

System 7 made a profit of 1.7pts from 31 bets which is an ROI of only 5.4% which is again below the long-term average.

System 8 made a profit of 5.75pts from only 18 bets (32% ROI) which is much more like it and much in line with past seasons.

System 9 made a loss of 1.4pts from only 6 bets which means it is hard to draw any conclusions at the moment. A disappointing month but not a disaster.

Overall, a pleasing start to the football bets this season.

Weekend Bets

A very busy weekend ahead with the most bets picked out by the system so far this season. Looking at them, I think there are some very strong bets but I'd also say that there are some weaker bets!

I'm hoping system 8 can continue it's current run of form as I made a nice profit last month on the system and I've increased my stakes slightly from the start of October.

Fingers crossed for a good day!

Great end to the month

The systems finally came good last night and a profit of 8.7pts was achieved to level stakes.

It was also my best betting day of the season so far, so all in all, a great night.

I'll be back with a monthly review tomorrow I think. It's always going to be easier to write a review after a good month I think!

Tonight's bets

I should really apologise for not updating the blog with any thoughts as I keep having lots and lots of thoughts floating around my head about what I can do to make this blog an enjoyable read as well as help myself by improving staking and so on. However, my full-time work committments are taking up an amazing amount of my time and mental energy (if there's such a thing!) at the moment, so I can't really think about anything else in any depth or my head would explode.

Therefore, everything around staking etc. stays the same and I just roll on to another set of midweek fixtures with the same staking plan as Saturday.

I placed all these bets last night and due to sheer tiredness I think, I backed the wrong team in one of them but I've managed to lay them off on Betfair today, so if they win, it's a tiny loss on the bet. I did back the other team I meant to back last night though, so if the original team I backed wins, it will be an expensive change of bet!

Lots of bets today and last night, I did feel a bit robotic placing the bets as I didn't even know what I was doing really. The stakes are irrelevant now (I just place whatever the spreadsheet tells me to) but I was clearly going to Corals too often last night as they refused my full bet on Portsmouth. No hassle really as I backed them elsewhere and split the stake but looking at my bets I placed, I was placing too many with Corals when I should really be spreading them around a bit. Again, that's just tiredness as I wasn't thinking about what I was doing but I'll forgive myself that.

I noticed Portsmouth were actually only 2 on Betfair when I backing at 2 with Corals, so maybe that's why I got refused my full stake. Anyway, I'll see what happens with my next set of bets at the weekend.

I can open a Eurobet account if I want to and I can also use my fiance's name to open an account with Corals also, so I've got options if I need a new account. In addition, I was intending on opening 2 accounts a week going forward but I've sort of stagnated on 16 bookmaker accounts for a few weeks due to lack of time. I'll maybe look to open a few more this weekend to allow me to keep spreading bets around.

I've not really looked into any of the specialised footie sites yet (Dimes etc.), so I'll maybe start trying these guys in future but no rush at the moment. I'm a very small fish in a massive pond I feel at the moment and my ROI is so low with so many bets, I can't imagine bookmakers are seeing me as anything other than some footie nut who's backing lots of teams all the time and not getting very far! (I'll show them ;) )

Anyway, here's tonight's bets. A lot of weight has been placed on the win Portsmouth had last weekend, so we'll see if they can carry on with that sort of performance!

Still on target I think!

Another interesting weekend for me and the important thing is I made a small profit again. It was another real rollercoaster again where at various points in time, I was feeling great and then I was really down and then at the end, I was just relieved it was over again! The system bets made a small loss to level stakes but under my current staking plan, I managed to make a small profit.

It started badly on Friday night with Leicester getting thumped by Portsmouth and I had a feeling it might be a bad weekend.......

Things turned out OK on Saturday afternoon though and in the end, I was pleased with how the day went.

My target is all about trying to achieve a small profit myself this season and after the first couple of weeks, I think I’m still on course to get there. The journey has actually been very smooth thus far and I’ve not really had a bad weekend yet, so it’s been a smooth journey so far.

I’ll leave it there for now. I should have some system bets for the midweek fixtures this week. Once the midweek fixtures pass, I’ll post up some more stats based on the first month of the season for my system bets as I’m still thinking that I can improve on things going forward with regards my own personal staking in particular.
