SPORTS: A frustrating time…

It’s been a poor week for the sports portfolio, and that patience I was talking about last week is being sorely tested.  We’ve not quite reached the deepest drawdown previously suffered this year, and in fact the deficit from the previous high is less than 8% of the bank attributed to the four services collectively.  So it’s not as if we’re losing lots of money.

What is proving to be – if I’m being honest – a little disheartening, is the one step forward, two steps backward scenario that we’re seeing from Sports Service 1 and Scottish Football Income Booster.  As far as the former is concerned, it feels like we’ve spent the last two or three weeks slowly clawing back the losses we experienced in the first part of the year, but the prices taken have been so short, that the two losses from two bets last week have knocked us straight back to where we were.

For SFIB it’s been similar.  We had a tremendous weekend a couple of weeks back with all four or five bets winning and a big chunk of the overall loss being regained, but the last two poor weekends (four losses from four bets this weekend) has undone much of that good work.

But, this is all part and parcel of betting.  We will have frustrating periods, and this is one of them.  Perhaps the feeling of malaise has been heightened by the The Poacher only issuing three bets this week (all losers) due to ill health.  Get well soon, TP!
