In the past few months, results have been pretty average.
Exploiting casino offers had not been showing much profit. Profits made from matched betting and arbitrage have been continually limiting the damage.
Well I am glad to say that this month advantage play offers paid off and a good profit was made.
Has it been worth adding two tipsters to my portfolio in an effort to bring in more profit?
Lets take a look.
Matched Betting – Sports Offers, Accumulators, Arbitrage
As usual I will start off with the safest and lowest variance part of the portfolio.
In August I plowed through a lot of the smaller bookmaker sign up offers that I have avoided previously.
It might not seem like a very effective way to spend time. Opening accounts for only a £10 or £5 bonus. However in the long term even from smaller bookmakers. There is added value to be taken from value betting or arbitrage.
In August I took part in 190 offers.
A total profit of £912 was made.
Subscription Cost – £12.50 a month (Annual Subscription)
Advantage Play – Casino Offers
The last two months had shown nothing but losses from advantage play offers.
If you trust the Maths and just keep plugging away. Then the profits will start to show.
This was the case in August.
I took part in 117 advantage play offers.
A total profit of £830 was made.
Subscription Cost – £9.60 a month (Annual Subscription)
In August I really didn’t do a lot of trading. I was away on holiday with the family for two short breaks during the month.
Much like last month I caught a few Psychoff trades and traded the William Hill price boosts. However my volume was really low this month as I prioritized spending time with my children whilst they were on holiday.
In total I made 6 trades for a profit of £32
Sports Betting Results
August capped off my best month in terms of profit made for my own sports betting results.
My own betting consists of only betting on football and mixed martial arts.
In MMA my single biggest profit was £172 backing Henry Cejudo at odds of 5.3 to dethrone pound for pound king Demetrious Johnson. Whilst in football backing PSG at 2.0 when they trailing to 1-0 Guingamp produced a profit of £150.
A total profit of £1485 was made in August, from a total of 40 bets
After 358 bets I am running at an roi of 12% which I know isn’t sustainable. However just like the advantage play part of my portfolio. Its important not to get too excited when your running well and not get too disheartened when you run badly.
My approach to sports betting seems to be working. A sample size of 358 bets isn’t enough to say that I have a definitive edge. However I am pretty confident in my ability to find value in these markets.
The Football Guru Results
In August I bet on 41 selections from the Football Guru.
Staking £20 per point advised.
A total of -£350 was lost.
I missed quite a few selections this month due to going away on holiday. Looking at official results it would not changed things by much.
Subscription Cost – £20 a month (Annual Subscription)
Morning Value Lite Results
The second tipster that I have added to the portfolio. Is the Morning Value Lite service which is a premium tipster from the secret betting club.
I started betting selections to £50 a point on July the 25th.
At the end of August I had bet on 60 selections.
A total loss of £407.5 was made.
August was a good month. Results were solid throughout the whole portfolio with only the two tipsters showing a loss. I got to go away on holiday twice with the family but still managed to grind out a decent amount of volume.
This month I have been thinking about my long term goals. My ambition is to reach a point of financial freedom and security using this portfolio as the catalyst.
I have been looking at other passive ways to invest my profits. So far peer to peer lending looks like one of the best choices. If anyone has a lot of experience with peer to peer lending. Would be good to hear your advice in the comments section or send me an email.
Lets take a look at overall results for August.
