July 15th – July 21st +$7,928.15
I don’t think I can remember a more steady period of profit than the last few months. 10 of the past 11 weeks have been profitable and the losing week was a small $3,000 loss. If only things were like this all the time. I’ve been a busy boy this week, working on a few gambling related projects. I’ll have something to share in an article this week. If you follow me on Twitter, you would have seen I am working on an interactive bet history app. Getting Sportsbooks to share this data has been an absolute nightmare, and from a business perspective you can understand why they would not want their
mugs (sorry, valued customers) knowing their profit and loss (sorry, I mean LOSS) figures.
Earlier this year I won a trip to the Superbowl thanks to Ubet (tatts), and I will eventually get around to posting about the trip and how I managed to win that competition. Last week one of my mates who I took on that trip won his company wide competition to head to England for the Rugby Union semi’s and final (all expenses paid). His wife decided she couldn’t be away from their kids for that long, so I am happily taking her place (on the trip, not the wifely duties you sicko). The only downside is that I will have to watch Rugby Union, but the EPL will also be on while I am there in November. Josh who runs the Dailyprofit site with me also won a facebook competition last week and got to meet the Real Madrid team. There are hundreds of competitions running and you really should be entering them.
In Industry news, Ladbrokes have removed their Click to Call (Inplay) betting and all TV stations will no longer air any ads from William Hill and Bet365 about the feature while the legality of it is in question. As I said when this was first introduced, it was clearly illegal and these companies in a drive to earn some quick profits have cost themselves and Australian punters in the long term as they have pushed the chance for legal in play betting back a few more years. They should all be heavily fined.
Onto the weekly results and Sportpunter continues to perform. AFL made another $14,000 this week. There were some very close games and I was lucky to win the line by 0.5 to 1 point on a couple of games. The NRL did well with $2,200 profit and next season I will be increasing my stakes on this sport. MLB lost $150.
Dailyprofit members made a small profit again this week, but lost on those AFL bets that I won on. While I dislike marketing, we are going to be getting the Dailyprofit service more out there in its second year. I feel the service has proven its value and now we just need to get more people knowing about it. I broke down the entire first years Sportpunter results here. I will have a full breakdown of the Value & Risk Free service ready for next week.
Bloody Golf, I had about 6 players in contention last night and at numerous stages I thought one might get up. Instead I ended with another $1,350 loss. It was not a good week for my own personal bets, losing over $5,250 and betting when odds moved out produced a $1,500 loss.
I can not believe that the new Soccer season starts in a months time. I have not even reviewed the last season yet. I know I will be betting very differently this season, but do not have the specifics down. I better get my arse into gear very soon. Long may this glorious run continue, I need a huge buffer for the Soccer storm. As always, I am excited and optimistic about the new season, but that is not based on past results, more of a wish that seems never to be fulfilled.
