Comments for Daily25 Trying to make $250 per day with sports betting Tue, 02 Sep 2014 13:46:00 +0000 hourly 1 Comment on Aug 27th – Sep 2nd +$4,364.14 by wah Tue, 02 Sep 2014 13:46:00 +0000 Hi Ben
How long have you followed PCG for. What time zone are you in.What bookies do you use and do you have any records you would like to share?

I have been looking at joining for a while but am kind of waiting to see an sbc review as i have no faith in us monitoring and cant get hold of detailed results from pcg.

AND Steves results although relevant to me a little I should be able to improve on.

Thanks if you reply if not well i ask a lot of questions

Thanks again for the info, I think Stewboss is getting the first email of the season ready where he will write for sure about the staking levels, and then I’ll make a decision.

Comment on Football Investor 2013/14 Review by Steve Tue, 02 Sep 2014 13:13:00 +0000 I’m not sure when they are released, I know I am asleep. Email Stewboss and I’m sure he can give you all the information. He will also help you come up with a good staking plan.

When are bets released? I’m at Southamerica and I get GOWI at least 2-3 hours after everyone else (emails are sent 5-6am my local time) so I’m used to do “a lot of work” to get the recommended prices.
I’m already subscribed to FI, but now I need to make up my mind about how and what I’m going to follow.
Maybe lower stakes for FI and SZ, or higher on the Combo ones like you did…

Comment on Aug 27th – Sep 2nd +$4,364.14 by Steve Tue, 02 Sep 2014 11:05:00 +0000 haha, mark those emails as important. Yep, much higher stakes then almost all other bets this season. I usually have to take at least 1 point worse lines on CFL.

Comment on Aug 27th – Sep 2nd +$4,364.14 by Sporting Value Tue, 02 Sep 2014 09:59:00 +0000 Somehow the College bets ended up in my junk folder and I never saw them! 2 points does seem a lot though, given the circumstances. Also find the Canadian Football prices disappear very fast.

Comment on Aug 27th – Sep 2nd +$4,364.14 by Steve Tue, 02 Sep 2014 07:39:00 +0000 Hey Ben, Cheers, I don’t even agree with myself at times. That’s why this discussion area is so good. We are all students and I’m forever making mistakes and need to learn as well.

Firstly I don’t think the service is bad in anyway, I think my location is a big factor in matching the odds and explained that. When I have been up at 1am and the emails have come out, I can match the odds. So I have no issue with the odds or the results. I also believe Tom is a good guy and knows what he is doing. I think it is a profitable service.

I had an issue with those specific bets and I think for good reason. That bet was only available at 5dimes, and then Betcris and I think B365 may have added it closer to kickoff. If you got the same lines and odds for those 3 games then the issue might only be mine.

Yep, that’s what I’ll be doing. Any bets that move more then a point I will be leaving alone from now.

Thanks for the comments, good to have people state their opinion when it contradicts with mine.

Comment on Aug 27th – Sep 2nd +$4,364.14 by Ben Tue, 02 Sep 2014 07:30:00 +0000 Hi Steve – great blog by the way, really enjoying reading it, even if I don’t always agree with what you say!! Yes, I’ve followed PCG for quite a while, bet £75 a unit and have no issues getting the bets on with a combination of 365/Pinn etc

I’m surprised at what you say about PCG results being queried – I admit I don’t know Picksmonitor – as his results on his emails tally with mine. I’ve always thought Tom was one of the ‘good guys’ and his long term results are great

I think if you have trouble getting on the college football bets, leave them out. It’s only a small part of his service and NFL, NBA and MLB (except the past week or so!) are where the main profits are to be had

Comment on Why Pinnacle Sports sucks for the average bettor by Steve Tue, 02 Sep 2014 07:26:00 +0000 I think the issue is we really don’t know what the average mug punter is like. As I mention in the article, I got my data from someone who works for Australia’s largest sportsbook, so would assume that’s a pretty good place to start.

They will only get 1 signup bonus, but will also get reload bonuses, freebets, ongoing bonus offers and a lot more (especially if they are losing).

Yep, sadly most punters don’t really care, and that’s what bookies are hoping for, they show them a flashy life and market these winning punters. So real ads would help, punters going into credit card debt, divorces, suicide. But that side is never shown.

Comment on Football Investor 2013/14 Review by Steve Tue, 02 Sep 2014 07:22:00 +0000 Hey Mariano,
I took the odds throughout the week and then just before the matches started, as you can imagine, some odds blow out and others never recovered. It does take a lot of work to get those odds.
Yes, it is flat stakes. I only used Combo as its name implies, it is a combination of FI and SZ. I may look to add the Euro ones this year. This year I am looking to diversify a lot more so might instead bet FI and SZ instead of combo.
