SPORTS: NFL gets off the mark, but tough going.

I imagine the Sports portfolio is going to be pretty darned quiet at times this year.  Which is a good thing.  If you read my Bet Diary posts at the start of the year, you will know that one of my main aims for 2022 was to cut back the time I dedicate to betting without losing anything in terms of profitability.

With Sports Service 1 in action only sporadically, and Touchdown Profit only through the six months of the NFL season (with few games each week once the regular season ends), it is going to be The Poacher that provides by far the most regular action.  Come the summer when the main European leagues shut down, it’s going to be very quiet indeed.

What all this does mean is that with reduced turnover, there is a greater risk of variance having an effect for a longer period of time (in terms of weeks and months).  It is easy for a low-turnover service to have a losing year, because there are relatively few bets.  Of course if things go well, the stats can show an amazing year.

All of this is a very long-winded way of saying that it was good to see Touchdown Profit get off the mark for 2022 with a win from its only bet this week having lost its first four bets.  We don’t want to be getting too far behind when we know there are not going to be that many bets over a course of 12 months to allow us to catch up.

Not a great week for The Poacher though, and like the golf, Sports is struggling to get going this year.
