The sports portfolio is very distinctly cut in half at the moment. Of the four services, two are doing extremely well (Sports Service 2 and The Poacher) and the other two not so well. This is normal, and I’ve no doubt that at some point in the months ahead the roles of each will be reversed. That’s the idea of spreading the risk and diversification – you look for the profits of some to balance out and then provide more than the losses from others. That as a whole the sports section is still running at an overall ROI around the 5% mark means it is meeting expectations.
The Poacher in particular has had a good week, reaching a new high water line for the year before yesterday’s losing tip. I can’t emphasise how easy it is to get on. It’s not infrequent that the advised price is a few ticks lower than advised by the time I got to the exchanges to get on, but I just leave an order for the recommended price and most of the time it is matched before kick off. I’ll “keep” the order when the game goes in-play too, and have no real concerns about time erosion before the order is matched. Occasionally I miss a bet if it’s a + on the Asian Handicap, but most are not and I’m not going to fret about missing the odd bet here or there…and it really is only the odd bet.
So, all good, and just a case of keepin’ on truckin’…
