Nov 19th – Nov 25th +$33,407.46
Wild swings have become the norm now and happily for me, this weeks swing was all up. The biggest bet of the week lost. A massive $8,000 on an NBL game, but Soccer made a storming comeback with some big priced winners. I’m still waiting for back to back massive weeks to get me into some decent profit, but I have belief that it will come soon. The profits were shared amongst all sports this week, a very rare occurrence.
Sadly the NBL model has been woeful. It had a terrible first week, followed by an amazing run and now a shockingly bad run. Hopefully we see a turnaround soon. It lost a further $8.800 this week (I missed a $3k winning bet though). The NFL model lost $700, but the other American based sports did really well. NHL Totals returned $2,300 profit and the NBA Model continues to shine with over $16,000 profit this week.
Most ClubGowi members would have had a losing week, but not me, I made $2,900 thanks to only betting when I could get close to his quoted odds. Also thanks to many of his not so bright customers who seem to bet at any odds and crush the prices which produce value on the other side. So not only have I saved money by not betting the losing plays, I’m actually making money from opposing them. This week thanks to Gowi members and some TFA & Winabob members, I made an extra $2,500 profit. I’ve now signed up to ClubGowi for an extra 12 months and will use it to bet against any selections that are crushed by his huge following. I have still yet to be paid out on my Golf win so that will be included in next weeks update.
PCG had a very solid week with a return of $3,300, hopefully that continues over the coming months. Jason Kelly golf lost $75.
Soccer combined added $15,600 profit for the week and is now just a few grand down overall. The big mover was TFA with $9,600 profit and my specific portfolio now sits at a small $2,300 loss. That’s nothing at all and after such a poor start and with us coming into what is historically a profitable time, I can start hoping to see some profit once again from this model. Football Elite added $1,200 but Football Value lost $2,000. Value is a newly introduced tipster this season and has not impressed so far, but the loss is small and a few wins will get me smiling again. Winabobatoo had another winning week (for the bets I could get on) and added $2,200 profit. After the amazing start for combo football investor, this system has also done poorly and is now in negative territory after losing $1,900 this week, but luckily for me, I also follow the Euro system and that produced an incredible $6,500 profit to inch into profit for the season.
A very strong performance all-round from the Tipsters this week and once again I am sitting on some profit. Looking forward to a strong December to cap off another solid (but not exceptional) year of betting. I’ll be busy this week creating a new business which I hope you will all find fun and exciting. It is an idea I have had for the past 5 years but have never had the time to make it. I have joined up with a few old friends and will be competing in a hackathon (bunch of nerds get together and create something over a weekend) and we hope to take out the top prize and create what I think could potentially become a very big business and help a lot of people. More on that next week.
A lot more cautious this week as I was in the exact same position just a few weeks ago and it crashed back down very quickly. I’ll just take this week as it comes, whatever will be will be…. you know the rest of the song…. Until next week.
Actually, not until next week just yet, one more thing. My industry insider who wrote a very popular article 2 months ago is now ready to write something new for the site. What would you like to know from someone inside the bookies? Put your questions in the comments section and he will happily answer them in the next article.

Out of curiousity, I’d like to know from the “industry insider” if the agencies are pushing hard for online in-play betting to become a reality in Australia.
I’d like to know how the recent changes from Racing NSW to force bookies to take bets (up to a certain amount), are going to effect things going forward and if they will all fall into line or just use different tactics to combat it?
I’m searching for a good tipster who moves the market and odds dropping is a big issue for customers. Please advise me such services. (Except newsletter type tipsters, like Gowi). Thank you.
All the top guys in the Blogabet market will move the odds.
Steve, by what % would GOWI’s odds have to decrease in order for you to deem the other side backable?
How has PCG gone for you? Thinking of signing up with him but I havent decided yet. Would you recommend him?
Great blog btw!
Not good for me at all. Based of my results I could not recommend him at the moment
Even though we’re up over 100 units with the raw numbers since you’ve been subscribed you couldn’t recommend me? :-/ All of the systems that I give out that are over 55% in the black? None of my subscribers complain like this.
I can’t recommend the service (that doesn’t mean I haven’t sent you well over double figures subscribers) as I have yet to make a profit. As mentioned numerous times, I do not bet the raw numbers not would the people signing up if I recommended them. I can only ever go off my own experience of following the advised bets in the emails.
My results have been negative so far. These are just my results (which include me not following certain sports due to odds movements, not matching odds because of timing, so on). I’m one guy following many systems, my results are honest and I have not made any profit. Simple as that.
Fair enough Steve. Just consider what I said in the other posts moving forward. It is hard to make money betting sports, and honestly I feel like things have been huge lately considering my own service as a whole (raw numbers + emailed selections). I see your point of view though.
I can’t give away all my secrets. It’s a big percentage though. I would say only 25% of the bets do go over this limit.
Am I OK to email you? I have an idea that I’d like some feedback on but don’t want to email you out of the blue.
Hi Andrew, very nice of you to ask. I get a few emails every day, no problems with you emailing me. There is a contact Us form on the bottom right of every page. Speak soon
