I think that with just one month of 2021 left to go, the sports portfolio has this year failed to deliver. It just hasn’t worked, and whilst the bigger picture is brighter with both the racing and golfing services faring much better as a collective, I can’t help but feel disappointed. I’m very much looking forward to a bit of a sporting reboot come January.
Until then though, I’m resolutely plodding on.
Although there hasn’t been much to shout about this past week, what little there has been has come from Sports Service 1, which enjoyed a good Saturday of darting action at the Players’ Championship Finals. Three winning bets from four provided a good return. Now just a couple of points down from the year’s previous high water mark, I’m hoping a good World Championships over Christmas will end the year on a high.
Now for the bad news, and The Poacher has really suffered these past couple of weeks. A decent Sunday has hopefully stopped the rot but unable to catch a break with red cards and late goals going in at the wrong end has resulted in the service reaching its deepest drawdown for 2021 to date. I have every confidence the downward trend will reverse.
And another disappointing week for Scottish Football Income Booster. Three bets in the Premiership north of the border, and three losers. Their deepest drawdown for the year has gotten three points worse as a result.
