Lets start with the NFL today. The handicap advice from SBC regarding three of the four games being played didnt pan out and it was case of being very close, but not close enough on two of the games. The loss from these three matches was £150. My bet on the Cowboys was smashed by the Vikings as they were blown away.I thought Romo had a terrible game and the whole team performed way under par. So £50 gone there too. On the plus side Mr X had another winning bet which was to back New York Jets +9 in the handicap. I got 1.95 for this, when you see they actually won the game that was pretty darn good. So a profit of £47.50.
Overnight i stayed up and got involved in a couple of tennis games. Unfortunately the rain came down in Melbourne and cocked everything up. I couldnt be bothered to stay up waiting for the rain to stop so exited the games i was in. Some red, some green, and hit the sack. Much safer than waking up to find i had done my dough !
I got up this morning and watched the Dokic game and was very fortunate to get out of that game unscathed, as i broke all the so called rules i put in place for myself. At the end i had -£500 on Dokic and just +£4 on Kleybanova. If anybody saw that game it was a typical WTA choke fest as Kleybanova starting double faulting when serving for the match, and Dokic with the home crowd behind her started to find her feet. If the game had gone to a second set tie break i would have taken the red on both sides, but luckily Kleybanova served out.
To the nags were i had three picks .Becolark in the 1.20 came home third at 16/1, Fort Severn in the 3.00 at 33/1, which came home fourth so denying me the each way money,and Victorias Groom in the 2.00 which won .With the lower price horses i just put on to win as i cant see the point in e/w betting unless it is returning me back my money, ie 5/1 and above.
Equine Investments had the one bet which was Creevy in the 3.50. For the first time since joining i picked the same horse this morning so with much haste i doubled up my bet. As they say two heads are better than one..... Well maybe we should be banging ours together as it finished second last ! Loss there of £50.
PP and Bet Catalyst had a no bet day and i produced a really nice profit on Betfair trading some markets. Again i had a bit of luck as i laid a horse in running just at the right moment.So today was £290 profit.
Now to the news that Pyschoff has all of a sudden stopped blogging. I wonder why that is after starting a million challenge at the beginning of the year? I am sure a lot of his readers and guys from other blogs will have their own ideas. For my part i am sad to see the end of the blog, but i like most others would have appreciated some idea of how he was making these profits by explaining some stratagies and staking etc.. It was all very cryptic to me. Anyway onwards and upwards i hope....
