This series is all about the ups and downs of a tipster portfolio approach to sports betting. It’s not here to directly promote any of the services and it’s certainly not here to criticise them either (after all, I’d be quite the fool to stake my own money on a service I don’t have faith in!)
Ultimately, the sole goal is to show that, despite the natural peaks and troughs, it is possible to make a good side income from sports betting if you follow the right services. All it takes is a little bit of organisation, and plenty of patience!

Just a quick note before I start that we’re running slightly behind with these, so this entry covers the week starting June 27th. We’ll catch up at some point!
A return to nothingness from the freebies with a small loss of just £7. A good week from Raceology and Flat Flyers, but a bad week for UCL as usual.
A big week for Wayne with over £200 made from five days of profit and negligible sums lost on the other two. Let’s hope this is the start of something.
Almost a blank week for Brett causing a £120 loss and somewhat undoing Monkey’s recovery.
One bet, one win, £77 profit.
Racecracker seems to on something of a roll now with another £49 profit this week bringing it to over £400 since mid-May.
Off season – no bets.
A handy £227 won from a win and a place in the states (Paston, 45/1) plus a variation from my own thinking. I have started spending around £30 a week on doubles for all players each week. Although there were no winning bets in Europe this week, my doubles hit a player to place that was offered at more places on the doubles bet and thus two separate doubles paid out for £64 profit. If we ever win both tournaments the pay out will potentially be huge due to the high odds involved.
A £40 profit from the first week of Wimbledon which, disappointingly, is only two points.
All sports profitable for the week is a very good sign. The £424 gained this week is a handy boost, taking the 2022 losses down to £2800. It feels as though we are swinging into form now and with still six months to go. I’m still waiting for Northern Monkey and Love to both record good figures at the same time, but patience has to be key at all times.
