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!
Please Note: I’ve written an introduction to this betting diary feature which you will need to read first to make sense of the below. You can find it on the Bet Chat website by clicking this link.
Please Note (2): The track records I publish in this diary are my own results and, as such, may not match up exactly to a tipster’s published track record. This is because I’m not always in a position to place the bets shortly after I receive them and so I will occasionally either take slightly lower prices or leave the bet altogether if it has shortened too much. I also place my own multiple bets which are detailed in the introduction post linked above.
Please Note (3): The year to date figures run from January 10th 2022 which is when I started this diary project. If you’d like to see the full ‘official’ track records, just visit the tipster platform’s website.
Something of a boring week…
Love has taken a break until Aintree hoping to rediscover his mojo. The newly anonymised Racing Tipster 2 has basically vanished. An e-mail to his customer support team led to no reply.
The other newly anonymised Racing Tipster 1 had four days without bets and First Class Racing only one day with.
The international break has led to virtually no bettable football. An unsuitable tennis tournament led to almost nothing from Wadster and the golf included the Matchplay where I only had one player left by the quarter finals. So, this summary won’t take long!
RT2 signed off (or rather didn’t) with a good Tuesday and Racecracker ended a short losing run with four points profit, but this was more than countered by RT1 extending his poor run to ten days without a profitable day and Northern Monkey losing a further seven points.
The single First Class runner finished unplaced leading to 2.5 points lost which is the risk you take with a low volume tipster. All in all, a £132 loss proving that less is not necessarily more.
One bet from Inside Man, won, +£38.
Two Sunday bets, both lost, -£50. Told you this round-up wouldn’t take long!
Three tournaments, one placer in the Matchplay. Nothing elsewhere for -£69.
A -£213 week took me to a year to date -£1762. I’m looking forward to April and the long-awaited upturn!
