Not so Lucky 15s! January review…

So, time to take a look back at Month 1 of 2024…

Right, that’s that done.  Let’s concentrate on what comes next.  See you next week.


You may have gathered, January has not been a great month.  After essentially breaking even for the first three weeks, the past week has seen a bit of nightmare for the Bookiebashing Racing Tracker-derived Lucky 15s (-34.44% ROI, -21.7% ROC).  It’s been typical of what happens when you go on a bad run.  Plenty of second places (although always it feels, on different Lucky 15 slips), horses finishing a close 4th when the place part pays out on the first three, fifth when the pay out is first four, etc.  The month wasn’t helped by bad weather forcing the abandonment of meetings and it’s noticeable that the number of Lucky 15s I’ve placed is lower than usual.  There have been some promising signs that things are picking up over the last few days in terms of bet numbers, although nothing promising about the results!

The month could have been so much better, if just one or two of the bazillion second place finishes on Sunday afternoons and evenings in the golf had instead finished first.  I have never had so many second place finishes in such a short space of time.  It’s been brutal.  For bets placed by my lad using his accounts, with which we can exploit the value in the place prices and terms from the Bookiebashing Golf Tracker, losses have been contained (-8.27% ROI, -3.06% ROC).  Finishing second is not much use for the bets placed win-only on the Exchanges though, eh?

It’s not all been bad.  Touchdown Profit have had one heck of a season, and with five of the six bets I’ve placed in January winning, the ROI of 62.86% (ROC 7.54%) has been incredible.  Shame this is by far the lightest staked service/strategy I follow.  I have to be thinking of upping the betting bank/stakes next NFL season.

The big winner has been the Value Bets taken from the Bookiebashing Bet Tracker and from using some of the tools found on the site to find some value myself.  The total for January sits at an ROI of 31.7% and ROC of 16.97%, and was largely down to a couple of winners that were showing as carrying big value (and therefore, relatively big stakes).

So, a losing start to the year.  Let’s see what happens in February.
