April review: +17 units (+1.1% ROI)

It’s hard to make big profits when the cornerstone in your portfolio are struggling. Jason James seems to be having a hard time getting things going this year and that shows in my portfolio’s result. A pretty straight-forward month overall, and I’m happy to be in profit.

I’m finding it a bit hard for some tipsters to optimize the odds. With Value Racing Tips for example, who’s so early with his tips, there’s the challenge to deal with it a good way on the exchanges. Get in too early and you ruin the markets, get in too late and you might miss the chance. I’ve noticed though that more often than not odds are rising, so my new tactic is to use BSP with a minimum odds set to the tipster’s recommended price (can’t understand that I haven’t noticed this feature before – probably because it’s only available on the desktop version of the site). So far so good for that experiment. Still not perfect for greyhound markets, but it’s easier than keeping check on all races in the evening and better than going for BSP, which is almost always way lower than the recommended prices when it decides to drop.

I’m taking on a new tipster from May. It’s another one from the Betting Gods network that I have faith in. A bigger odds football tipster finding value in more exotic markets. Suits me perfectly. Welcome aboard, Pro Footy Tips.

I’ve also decided to drop Insiders Tennis. Not because of the results, but a number of other factors that makes me a bit uncomfortable. They’re loud on Twitter when winning and dead silent when losing. A winning tactic for Twitter followers for sure, but that along with basing all stats on the best available odds instead of a more fair odds policy and an unpredictable amount of bets and some of them very hard to get on makes it a service not suitable for me. I’m sure they’re making money for a lot of customers though.

Not much more to say really. Many football seasons are over and it’ll be good to regroup over the summer. I have another football tipster in sight for next season as well, but more on that at a later point.
