I’m just after gathering some stats for my august betting so far and they make for interesting reading;
Athletics: €1.79 (3 bets)
Gaelic Games: €2.05 (1 bet)
Golf: -€10.17 (15 bets)
Soccer: €15.52 (119 bets)
Special Bets: €0.09 (1 bet)
Tennis: €26.38 (35 bets)
Total P&L: €35.66 (174 bets)
So my biggest winner was tennis, followed by soccer. I’ve placed a massive 174 bets in total, so on average each bet has won me 20c.
I’ve bet over €824.32 to win €35.66 which means i’ve earned roughly €1 for every €23 i’ve risked. If we compare that to Enda’s stats so far, he’s earned roughly €1 for every €1.96 he’s risked which is an incredible stat.
So you can look at this two ways;
- I’m lucky and playing a very high risk strategy which will inevitably end in tears.
- I’m smart in my betting because obviously if i’ve placed 174 bets, you’d assume i’d go bankrupt if i’m risking €23 to earn €1 on average (given the fact my starting balance was €20).
Personally, i’m not too concerned about stats when i’m winning and in the lead. If i lose next month, i’ll compare my stats to Enda’s again and see if i can change anything…. but for now, it’s looking like victory for me in August and the stat that matters most is in my favour
I’ve achieved a 176% ROI, Enda has achieved a 108% ROI on our starting balance of €20. However, the month isn’t over yet, Enda could still lose everything in a last ditch attempt to overtake me
