    Looks a rough time with AFL at the moment? Is it still travelling well for the season? Just a bad few weeks for the Sportpunter model?

  • Yeah, not hitting the heights of years past.
    H2H stands at 5.5k profit and Line bets are at 30k profit.
    Any other service and I’d be over the moon. But I’ve become accustomed to Sportpunter always performing beyond reasonable expectations.

    5 and a half more round before the finals, so hoping for a strong end to the season.

    Does your staking levels on the Sportspunter model not make all the other models largely irrelevant. It seems the majority of your risk is on one model.

    Hi Steve,

    Ever considered dropping football completely ?
    If it isn’t profitable, why persist in the hope that it may be profitable ?

    Good luck this season !

  • Not really, the stakes are large because there are so few bets per week. Last season over H2H and Line bets I bet $740k, ATP was $590k, TFA $690k. In total it was only 16% of my total turnover, but accounted for 71% of my profit.
    If these other models performed, then they would potentially return as much as AFL

  • Hey Banner,
    I persist because it’s the one sport without liquidity issues (for the most part). If I ever decided to have a real crack at this and aim for 1million in a season, the only way that could be done is by betting on soccer. I struggle as it is getting my AFL bets on now and doubt I will have enough accounts left to place anything in the next few years.

    Cracking Football is the only way to make this sustainable long term.

    Another reason is not putting all your eggs in one basket. I saw yesterday how dangerous that is as the only Tipster in Horse racing that I trusted decided to pack it in. What happens if Jonno gets an offer he cant refuse. Someone with large pockets could offer him a million for the AFL model and that’s the end of that.

    Like any type of portfolio that works, it needs to be diversified.

    Do you not feel it is possible to use American sports as a high liquidity market ?

  • Yep, I think it is a massive market and have slowly started testing tipsters in the area. There is a lot of rubbish though. But yes, bet limits massive and easy to get on. My next big avenue with Australian Horse racing.

    I’m also looking for tipsters who works with high liquidity markets. I have found that ATP/WTA tennis tipsters are very good, because the limit is about 1000-3000 EUR at Pinnacle and you could bet again with a slightly lower odds again. But it is hard to find good tennis tipsters.

  • I have always struck with Sportpunter for Tennis, but the last year and a bit has not been good and I will start looking at other unless there is a drastic change soon. Very easy to get 2-5k on at or near top price.

  • Norman

    Hey, I’ve been reading your early posts and you referrred to earning FF points, don’t the cc companies charge a cash advance fee for gambling sites?

  • No, you are right that the American sports are very liquid.

  • Most do and I went searching for one that didn’t. ANZ was the only one who didn’t, but that changed at the start of this month, they still don’t charge a cash advance fee, but no longer give FF points. I will be posting about this soon and my future plans (there is always a loophole somewhere)
