Why do I still do these stupid things?
Over the past few weeks I have been trying fairly hard not to get involved in one of my costly sessions of speculative, roulette style, random betting. From last Sunday night I give you the games…..
Ath Bilbao v Granada – layed Under 2.5 goals at 0-1.
Marseille v Paris SG – layed Under 3.5 goals at 2-0.
Coritiba v Avai – layed Under 1.5 goals and CS at 0-0.
Millonarios v Junior – layed Under 1.5 goals and CS at 0-0.
For some reason that is still unknown to me I gambled on all 4 of these games, and not surprisingly I lost. I had done well all weekend discipline wise and with my picks, only to undo some of the good work by losing most of Saturday’s hard earned profits on nothing bets.
Of the four games listed, probably only Coritiba were worth a bet in the 2nd half. I have no real problem laying Under 1.5 goals mid way through the 2nd half when the score is 0-0 and there is a heavy odds on favourite. Apart from that, if I’m totally honest with myself the rest were just joke bets.
I actually won a few quid on Marseille, but why I layed Under 3.5 goals at 2-0 with 10 minutes left, I’ll never know. I suppose there was a chance Bilboa would come back from 0-1 down in the first game listed (I layed Under 2.5 goals in 2nd half), and as for the last game, I was simply chasing losses.
Onto other betting strategies and my pre match trading experiment resulted in a free £4 green on an Arsenal win and a free £4 green on Over 2.5 goals in the Swansea V Villa match.
I should have spread my green in both games but I really couldn’t see anything other than an Arsenal win and after the tragic news about Gary Speed I wasn’t really interested in the Swansea game or trading and just switched off from football until late in the evening.
The Assured Soccer Profits system showed a weeks profit of £18.51, so another winning week there (maybe the penny will drop there soon and I’ll just stick to that system), the overall results can be found here.
Over the course of the week I showed a profit – wow, that’s two weeks running now – so I am happy to at least be moving in the right direction. Just to clarify, this blog post is for my trading activity up to the end of Sunday 28th November.
The aim for this week is to keep going with the ASP system and hope for a weeks profit of around 7%.
