Making A Million From Sports Betting And Trading – December 2021 Results

Alright that’s another year of betting in the books.

Overall it was a profitable and although covid still rears its ugly head. 2021 felt like a much more normal year compared to 2020 where everything seemed to be on hold.

If you want to take a look at results over the whole year, you can view the videos below.

(The video is broken up into 2 parts)

If you just want to take a look at results from December, let’s dig into them!

Value Betting

Strong end to the year for value betting.

Increased my staking on some of the bigger value bets this month. Previously i capped my max bet at £200 but I increased this to £300 in December. Which paid off as a number of the higher value bets paid off.

Something else that I also do with bigger value bets that I am confident will continue to shorten in odds. Is hedge half of the stake which in turn gives me a larger value bet.

This lowers the variance of value betting long term. When looking at value bets which don’t start for a few days it can be a good strategy to use.

Value Betting December

 

During December there were 264 value bets.

A profit of £2312 was made.

Advantage Play – Casino Offers

Casino offers came back with a solid winning month to end the year.

Feel like results have been a little underwhelming this year after a really strong 2020.

However I know I have done a lot less in terms of volume this year. To be honest casino offers are pretty mindless and almost just data entry this point.

Where as with betting I get a bit more stimulation out of trying to beat the game.

During December I did 78 offers.

A loss of £879 was made.

Smart Sports Betting Community/MMA Results

MMA Results

I small profit with MMA betting in the last month of the year.

After 10 bets a profit of £329 was made.

UFC Betting Results

Horse Racing Tipsters

On to the horse racing portfolio, which has been something of a revelation this year.

It’s something that I hope can really allow me to scale profits up. Due to the volume that you can get down on a daily basis. Feels like it could be a game changer for me as long as thing continue to go well.

My staking plan is very simple – £10 on horses odds of 10.00 above and £20 on horses at odds of below 10.00.

This is the line up of horse racing tipsters I now use.

Horse Betting

During December a profit of £257 was made.

Not the most mind blowing figures for December but over the whole year a profit of £4420 was made. With stakes ranging from £5 – £20.

Which is encouraging going forward.

Trading/Golf/Misc

Whilst everything else was profitable losses came in a few areas.

There weren’t many golf bets in December but that accounted for losses of -£120.

Experimented with Winnerodds software on the exchanges in December combined my own betting/trading also accounted for losses of -£609

A loss of -£729 was made.

Thoughts

Thanks if you are someone that actively reads these on a monthly basis.

Although I am still far off making a million. Writing these monthly blog posts does keep me motivated and accountable for my betting.

Hopefully you get some value from them, wish you all the best for 2022!

  1. These are great results! Thanks for sharing once again and hopefully 2022 is on the up for you. The value bets you mentioned, are these a mix of 2 ups, enhanced boosts etc.? Be great if you would mention the strategy employed for the month in value bets like you do for horse racing.

    • Thanks for the comment. It’s a mixture of 2ups, boosts, straight value bets in shop, online and using limited accounts.
      Also take advantage of each way races where there is value. Basically whatever I can get bet that has value I will do.

    • Hi Johannes

      At the moment I am not using Trademate, get more from Oddsmonkey boosts etc and also have a manual strategy for finding value bets which works pretty well.
      It’s all based on the same premise as Trademate though.
