I have been skeptical about a couple of the services I follow for a while now and this month was the one that finally made the decision to actually kick them out of the portfolio easy. More on that a bit later, because July was actually a nice month betting-wise.
Roughly 58 units plus from 274 bets, which is below the average, but that’ll even out as soon as the football season start (which is soon, can hardly wait). The ROI is pretty much right on target though.
All in all, it was another great month for Golf Betting Expert and All Weather Profits, despite the extreme low-season for the latter. Actually, all services delivered fine results with Jason James as the only exception, along with the kicked-out services Mr Odds and Premier Greyhound Tips.
Mr Odds has been underperforming for a long time now and as the results have become poorer, the formerly so well written analyses have disappeared, which has made me doubt the work being put into the service. That he has removed his stats from the front page of his blog now that they’re not as good anymore doesn’t really add confidence either. Good riddance.
Premier Greyhound Tips is probably a nice service to follow IF you have a working strategy for keeping bookie accounts unrestricted. I don’t even have bookie accounts and on the exchange (Betfair), it’s pretty hopeless to find value in the odds and low liquidity markets. Add a losing run to that and you have a very expensive service to follow. More sad to see this one go.
Conveniently enough, I’ll be able to replace one football tipster with another – namely Football Investor’s Combo system. A service I’ve been on previously (before this blog happened) and with a great reputation and historic results tracked by Secret Betting Club, I’m really looking forward to following it.
The greyhound tipster will be replaced by another long-odds horse racing service that’s been on my radar for a while. Also with a great reputation and proved numbers via SBC – Bet Alchemist. This makes my portfolio more horse racing heavy that what was planned, but there you go – value is value, numbers are numbers and profit is profit.
