Mar 12th – Mar 18th -$17,395.58
I did say I didn’t want to know how bad things could get when Sportpunter models did not perform and like magic, my nightmares were delivered straight away. Sportpunter models still made a small profit in total, but they have been covering for the other services for a very long time, actually, they have been covering for them since the start. I actually saw this coming after the strong run I had been on lately, and last week it started to falter and this week it really went off the rails. Soccer gave me hope early in the year, but now I can safely say there is little chance of making a profit and a high chance of making a large loss for the season. I was on such a high Saturday afternoon and after one of my single biggest wins, everything went down hill.
Lets get Soccer out of the way. Football Elite made $860 and has been steady the last little while, it can really go either way this season. Skeeve made a loss of $200 but as always, it could have been so different. Nuneaton losing a 2 goal lead and Cambridge conceding late turned what would have been a massive win into a small win, and then Skeeve went against all his rules and lost a game this morning to make the week another losing one. It smells like he is chasing to get the service into profit for the year and as I have been saying all year, it does not seem to be working. Combo Football Investor has not been performing to its usual standard lately and lost $3,800 this week and The Football Analyst continues what is for me the worst ever season and loss I have ever had following any model. A further $13,250 lost this week and that takes me to 50% of the bank lost once again. ClubGOWI has also been treading water lately, sadly I have yet to see one of his great runs and hope it comes sooner rather then later. A $1,250 loss this week. So Soccer once again is responsible for this weeks loss with -$17,660.
The first week of AFL started with a split round and on Saturday afternoon I was heralding its return, as GWS produced one of the biggest upsets I have seen. I honestly thought I was throwing $500 away on the H2H bet at $13.50, but they managed to beat the swans pretty soundly in the last. Sadly that was the only win for the model this week and resulted in a $1,500 profit. If you follow me on twitter you might also have seen a bet I placed on that game get up. I was alerted that Sportsbet, who limited me to max bets of 0 had seemed to stuff up their limits for a certain type of bet and it seemed the market on a player was a little high. As I’d do anything to get back at Sportsbet who are a shocking example of how poor the big corporate bookmakers are in Australia, I decided to place my first non official bet in years. The bet was for most goals in the GWS v Sydney game and Cameron was at $12. Buddy Franklin was a firm favorite but the Swans usually share the goals and with Sportpunter thinking GWS had a chance, I assumed the odds should have been closer to $4. I duly placed a $1,000 bet (which for me is huge) on this and nearing the end of the second quarter I was not confident as he had yet to kick a goal. But two goals at the end of that quarter put me back in the game. Late on his teammate had a chance right in front to equal him on goals which would have halved the bet but sprayed it wide. A very lucky $11,000 win which will not be added to the spreadsheet. Maybe I should become a Tipster, how hard can it really be?
Onto the other Sportpunter models and the Tennis finally made a profit with $4,755 added this week bringing it back to break even for the year. The Rugby Union continues its excellent form with $4,000 profit and the new NRL player based model is looking half decent with another $1,400 profit. NHL totals lost $1,100 and NBA had a shocker losing $3,350. NBL had its worst week of the season going 0 for 3 and losing $6,500.
The Golf also had a shocker and lost a further $950.
That magical $100,000 mark now looks so far away. It’s just a random round number and has no significance at all, but psychologically it is massive. Getting so close to surpassing it a few times and now being so far off really gets to me. I know I will continue with Soccer next season, but unless I see some profit, it doesn’t look like it will be part of the portfolio going forward.
