November was the first month of my streamline more time efficient betting portfolio.
I really enjoyed spending a little less time betting. Spent more time learning about investing long term and even delved into learning more about cryptocurrency.
Cryptocurrency is something I have always though I would just leave alone. After reading more and looking into it I came to the exact same conclusion (time well spent).
Will stick with sports betting, trading and investing in the stock market.
Anyway enough rambling lets take a look at results from November (Month 56).
Apart from a few £5 Bet365 free bets and 1 or 2 arbitrage bets it was pretty much all value betting in November.
I get on value bets a few different ways.
Utilizing limited accounts, using betting shops and using accounts that have yet to be limited.
During November there were 107 value bets.
A profit of £619 was made.

Advantage Play – Casino Offers
It was a losing month for casino offers this month.
Been a while since I hit a really decent win on casino’s and profit this year has been a lot less then years prior. Part of that is variance but also I have just done a lot less this year.
In November I did 92 offers.
A loss of -£129 was made.
Smart Sports Betting Community/MMA Results
A rough month for my MMA betting, along with those that followed selections.
Looking through the bets I made this month I was happy with all of them. It’s just this is betting and the fact is sometimes you are going to lose.
Overall results for the year are still very solid.
This month there were 13 bets and a total loss of -£1220 was made.

Horse Racing Tipsters
Horse racing tipsters make up a big part of my overall volume now.
The majority of these selections come from Beth Bet. However there are other tipsters that I am also using.
One podcast that I also use for selections is the Bar Stewards Enquiry.
Its a bunch of very knowledgeable horse racing bettors that give out great selections.
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.
During November a profit of £1842 was made from horse racing tipsters.
A really strong month and betting on horse racing is something that I want to focus more on going forward.
I like the amount of volume I can get down on a daily basis, there are plenty of good horse racing tipsters around. There does seem to be some scope to profit from the exchanges also which is the big factor.
Not the best month for the golf portfolio. Got off to a fairly good start early on but a consistent stream of losers put the month into negative figures.
Alongside that I also place a few of my own bets that are purely based on the market indicating they are value.
During November a loss of -£107 was made.
Don’t remember doing any trading this month.
However looking at my records there is an extra £10 profit for the month that has come from somewhere.
Overall not the best month in terms of profit but I was happy to salvage something. As it looked like I would be booking in my first losing month for a long time after the 21st.
Removing my losses from MMA the month would have been pretty solid, so happy with the more time efficient approach I took this month.
Been playing around with the highly rated tennis value betting software Winnerodds this month also. Seeing if I can get some use out of it purely using the exchanges.
Things look promising on this front and its another service that doesn’t require too much time.
In terms profit for the year again its been pretty solid. At the start of every year I think “Ok I am really going to go for it this year.”
Then end up making between £20k -£30k which has happened for the last 5 years. Which I am really happy about as I have always worked full time alongside the betting.
Long term I hope that betting will help me retire early. I don’t think its ever something I would want to solely rely on for a living.
My approach has always been about hammering volume rather then increasing my stakes quickly.
But perhaps in 2022 I should really assess my staking and be more aggressive.
