Last week, i finished with a balance of €22.78. This was just 2 days in to our little betting competition here on lucky.ie, so a €2.78 profit wasn’t bad at all.
This week though, over 7 days, i’ve made about 6 times that amount. I’ve finished with a balance of €37.39.
I’m still in the lead and despite Enda’s attempts at clawing his way back, i’ve led from day one and every day since
So far, i’ve only finished in the red one day this week. It’s been profit after profit apart from that and for more details on my winnings, check out these posts from during the week;
I would have said at the start of the month, a balance of €37.39 would be more than enough to scoop victory. But now, i’m not so sure. Enda has bet little, but won big. I’ve bet big and won bigger. Just over €6 separates the two of us at the minute.
I probably haven’t done enough to seal victory yet, but at this stage, it’s still mine to lose. You won’t see me banking on anything or risking much if that €6 gap remains intact… but you will see me try to rack up a few cents here and there with smart, solid bets.
I’ll be happy to finish week 3 with €40. But i’ll be just as happy if my balance stays the same and Enda’s shrinks
Is it all just luck? I don’t think myself or Enda are particularly lucky. When we place so many bets in a week and both have an ROI of over 50%, it can’t all be down to luck
I know i’ve been unlucky in some of my lost bets and i know i’ve also been lucky with injury time goals for example. I think, over time, luck and bad luck evens itself out.
Here’s my stats:
- Opening Balance: €22.78
- Bet this week: €104.93
- Current Balance: €37.39
- Profit/Loss (week): €14.61 profit
