A strange start to the season and today saw the 3rd round of bets. The first round of bets was very good, the 2nd round of bets saw a wipeout from 4 bets in midweek and then today saw another very poor performance overall with a lack of winners from a decent number of bets.
It’s funny, we’ve had just over 1% of the system bets I expect this season (15k system bets are expected) and yet, the parallels to last season can already be drawn. Est Systems have started very poorly although the combined systems are worse than the ratings themselves which is in line with last season. New Systems have started OK and continue the pattern of looking much better systems than the Est Systems and of course, when other systems are losing, system 31 somehow manages to keep churning out winners and has started the season well so far.
Misc Systems have only had a small number of bets, so hard to draw any conclusions and the Draw systems started like they started last season and have yet to find a winner yet!
Of course, the interesting point for some reading this will be the fact September is now loss making and those wise/foolish (delete as appropriate) people who decided to have no bets in September after seeing that September is loss making historically are probably quite glad of today’s results. Of course, this game is always tight margins and if Welling had held onto a 1-0 lead today or if Alfreton had held on to beat Barnet last week, it might look a little different but so far, I expect those who have kept their powder dry are probably glad they have. Then again, after the first round of bets, they’d have been sweating. :)
A busy midweek coming up and a long way to go in September before we reach month end.
No winners yet on the Est combined systems and system 6-21 has started with 7 losses in a row. System 6 is actually in profit so far, so system 21 has started very badly and is causing the losses on the combined systems. Long-term, system 21 is a better system than 6, so hopefully it will improve soon!
A loss of 28.6pts from 60 bets.
A profit here of 18.88pts from 78 bets. A great first weekend, a terrible day today. System 31 has started with 8 winners from 16 which is a solid start.
7 winners from 26 and a loss of 5.25pts.
19 system bets, 19 losses. -19pts. Looking at last season, the Draw systems started with 2 winners from 28 bets last season, so 0 from 19 is maybe only a little worse! Due a winner soon. ;)
Overall, the first 183 system bets have yielded a loss of 33.97pts. Not the start I was hoping for this season but we’ve had worse starts!
Last season lost over 250pts in the first month, so we’ve plenty of time left to dig ourselves a much bigger hole this month! 34pts is a drop in the ocean. ;)
