I finally got around to totting up my figures for the season a few days ago and the numbers are these:
Championship: 221 bets for +0.08 units
League 1: 216 bets for -11.96 units
League 2: 220 bets for -3.76 units
totals: 657 bets for -15.64 units (-2.38 % ROI)
In summary…not very good. BUT there’s still around 20% of the season to go and we came home with a wet sail last season getting something like 25 units in the last few weeks.
Sometimes it just feels like things aren’t falling our way but that’s life and the numbers don’t lie. We almost had two bets this morning in Bristol City and Reading who both won, City got to $3.27 at one point when i wanted $3.30 and Reading got to $5.04 when my minimum acceptable odds were $5.20.
Onwards and upwards as mountaineers probably say a lot…
Birmingham to beat Newcastle at $5.20 with (min $4.90)
Barnsley to win at Norwich at $5.30 with (min $5.20)
2 units Stevenage to beat Portsmouth at $4.40 with
I must mention the last match in this list as it’s not often you can back a team at 3/1+ who have won their last 6 home games having scored 17, conceded 3 with 70 shots to 45 and 32 on target to 19. It seems that every time there is one of these they get chinned. Hopefully not this one as i’m chucking a double dose of hard earned cash at it.
