A good start to the season with 11 of the 13 single bet systems managing to make a profit this month. Overall, a profit of 51pts was achieved from 294 bets across all systems at an ROI of 17.4%.
The month started badly but then slowly turned around and a large amount of profit in the month was generated on the 28th when all of the systems at least broke-even.
4 of the 5 multiple systems had losing months this month which isn't the best start but then again, they are very variable on a monthly basis.
System 19 has started the season well though with 3 winning bets from 3 bets placed thus far. Unfortunately, the other 4 systems have eaten away all the profit this system has made. Interestingly, the strike high was unusually high this month at 52.9%. I expect this to drop as the season progresses.
Let's see what next month brings.....
I don’t think months come much better than this month. Every one of the single bet systems made a profit this month and even all the multiple bet systems made a profit!
The single bet systems made a profit of 85.9pts from 358 bets. Exactly 50% of the games were winning games this month. The ROI was a measly 24%. :)
The month started like a dream on the 2nd with a nice profit made by all systems and after that, it felt like we were treading water most of the month but looking back, we’ve still made some good profits in the latter part of the month also and of course, the month ended well.
The multiple bets made a substantial profit on the 2nd of October which isn’t surprising really. The rest of the month was loss making but again, it’s hard to worry too much about this when they make 241ps profit!
It’s been a dream start to this season for the systems but I know that a losing run may not be too far away, so it’s important to keep a level head.
Hopefully we can consolidate these profits next month.
Well, 3 months gone of the season and I’m starting to think I might have just stumbled across something this season with the footie. I’m trying my best to keep my feet on the ground (along with a bunch of others in the TFA forum following these bets too!) but it’s been an amazing start to the season.
All of the single bet systems made a profit this month again and an overall profit of 83.8pts was achieved at 24%. The selective systems again had a dream month and the ROI’s on some of these systems at the moment is unreal. I’m sure a correction is due on these for sure!
2 of the multiple bet systems had large losses, 2 had large wins and one system made a 9.7pt profit. Overall, another 163pt profit to add to the coffers.
It’s hard to know what to make of this at the moment. The results so far this season have been beyond expectations and it’s been a dream start to my football punting but I know a correction is probably due at some stage. Hopefully not though!
I’ll be back with another review next month.
Instead of the guys in the TFA forum trying to keep my feet on the ground, I’m trying to keep their feet on the ground after this month!
Another unreal month for the systems with the single bet systems achieving a profit of 78.5pts and an ROI of 40%. If I wasn’t following the bets myself, I wouldn’t believe this was possible on footie betting!
The multiple bets had an OK month with another nice profit on the month overall with 3 systems profitable and 2 systems having small losses.
There were no exceptional days during this month. However, the systems were very consistent and managed to eek out profits most days and overall, that adds up to a nice profit on the month.
4 months in and 4 large monthly profits. I’m waiting on something going wrong but we’ll see what happens next month as it should be a busy month to lots of rearranged games.
Well, the run had to end at some point. Although the single bet systems made a profit of 16.2pts (4.2% ROI) on the month, systems 21-23 had a bad month and that also resulted in systems 6-21 and 6-22 having losing months. These systems have only had a handful of losing months in 4 seasons, so it's not too alarming I hope.
The month started very well and on the 18th, the systems were 82pts up on the month and on course for the 5th amazing month in a row. However, the last 2 weeks of the month were a disaster and in the end, it felt quite fortunate to escape with a profit on the month at all.
The multiple bets were a mixed bunch this month. System 16 had an amazing month (which I managed to catch in my betting) and 2 of the 4 other systems had good months. However, the other 2 systems had terrible months with 1 winning bet from 12 placed between them.
Overall, the multiple bets still made a profit of 138pts and I can't moan too much at that.
So, 5 months of the season gone and 5 months of profit on the single bets and multiple bets. The overall ROI is in excess of the long-term average and it has been a dream season to date.
Let's hope February can keep the run going......
Well, I sort of knew this month was coming I think after the amazing start to the season. In a way, the fact the season has been going so well has made this month much tougher to take. In addition, I'm probably not alone in getting carried away and overstaking these systems after the run up to Christmas and the last 6 weeks have been very hard to swallow.
The month actually started OK with a few small winning days but two bad weekends followed in quick succession and the 12th was the worst day the systems had experienced for a very long time! That changed the whole tone of the month and the rest of the month became very difficult with losses on most days apart from the odd bet.
Overall, the single bet systems lost 66.4pts and every system made a loss. The strike rate was only 33% in the month which is well below the long-term average of circa. 50%.
The multiple system bets were a nightmare this month and due to the fact I've been playing these bets from February, they have had a disproportionate effect on my betting bank. There were only 2 winning bets from 32 bets staked which is a strike rate of 6.3%!
The losses were fairly substantial and amounted to 284pts!
Systems 17 and 20 nearly lost 100pts each which would be circa. 20% of their suggested betting bank in one month!
Looking at all the systems as a whole, they lost 350pts in the month which is quite amazing. Obviously, it shouldn't impact too much on the betting bank if staked properly but I know from the TFA forum that many (including myself!) have been overstaking these bets slightly and this month will cause us to take some action for the remainder of the season.
We'll see what next month brings......
I deliberately keep these monthly reviews fairly short and this month is no exception. It's only meant to be a quick run down of how the month went and I don't want to go into too much detail as most of the information is on the regular blog.
You'll see that I've added the DNB and DC returns to my monthly results. Although I'm not tracking them on the blog on a regular basis, there is no reason why I don't do it apart from it becomes a wider table and the pictures are small enough as it is!
Well, after last month's substantial loss, this month was always going to be an important month and it was simply a question of whether the systems would continue going down, steady the ship or bounce back.......
Thankfully for me and anyone else following, they have bounced back this month although depending on what systems you follow, this could be slightly misleading!
Overall, the single bets made a profit of 60.6pts from 375 bets. This is an ROI of 16% which is much in line with the long-term ROI. You will see that playing DNB this month would have resulted in a profit of 63.5pts and an ROI of 16.9%. Amazingly, DC had an exceptional month with a profit of 42pts and an ROI of 11.2%.
Looking at the results by each day this month, there were 16 betting days with 10 winning days and 6 losing days. The month started with an exceptional day and it was a simply of case a trying to hold onto as much of that profit as possible. The fact we managed to add to it as the month went on was a bonus I think.
Looking at each of the systems individually, I know most people play system 8 or 8-21 and 8-22. All 3 systems had decent months but system 8 stole the show from these systems with a profit of 7.6pts and an ROI of 44%. This keeps the season ROI around the 17% mark.
Out of all the systems, system 6 performed the best I think with a profit of 17.6pts at an ROI of 25.5%. An exceptional performance in a single month and gets this system back on track although the season ROI is still low at 5.5%.
Systems 22 and 23 have now made losses for 3 months straight in 2011. Looking at the season as a whole, it isn't a concern as they are still well in profit but it is a bit perplexing why this has happened. A quick look at the DNB/DC analsyis this month (and I can see the last two months) and both of these systems have had too many draws this year. They are making a profit to DNB/DC and yet, they are losing money with traditional H/A betting. Something to keep an eye on I guess.
The multiple bets started the month well but it was all downhill after that! They lost 60.9pts overall which makes it two very bad months in a row but nowhere near as bad as last month's near 284pt loss!
Overall, a decent month I think and this gets the systems back on track this season. There are only two months left this season, so we'll see what happens.
The bottom line for April is that the systems lost 106.6pts this month. To put this loss in perspective, Feb-10 was the worst month the systems have ever had and they lost a combined total of 66.4pts in this month. Hence, April was 40pts worse than February!
Every system made a substantial loss on the month but the biggest culprit was system 8-22. Until this month, this system was the best system I'd ever seen, not only from a football betting perspective, but from a punting perspective full stop. The system had made 33pts this season before this month from only 77 games. Looking back, it had an ROI of around 35% historically before this season and it was beating that this season until this month! It really did look like the most bullet proof system to follow.
The final monthly review of the season and due to the fact there were only 105 bets in the month, I'll keep this very brief as you can't draw too many conclusions on such a small data sample.
