It was a pretty poor week all round last week, but two tipsters have put themselves under some fairly severe pressure through continuing underperformance.
I’m rooting for him, but if you have read the SBC’s latest Tipster Profit Report, you will know that Racing Service 3 has been in the doldrums for a little while. His place in the Hall of Fame is looking less secure and he needs to show signs of an improvement in his form sooner rather than later. He has been through tough spells before of course, and it has been his ability to remain focused when under pressure that has seen him recover from them before pushing ahead again. I’ve a feeling that crunch time has arrived however. It hadn’t been a bad week for RS3 until an exceptionally busy Saturday saw a lot of bets and only one winner, the outcome being a pretty poor day.
The other service to suffer recently has been Football Lay Profits. Last Sunday was another particularly poor day; not the first in recent times. The result is a large deficit and already there has to be question marks over whether or not this season can turn a profit or not. It can. Of course it can. But we need to see a return to the consistency for which this service has been known in the past. To be over 23 points down already for September, having ended August in excess of 10 points down is a loss of form that I don’t remember seeing from FLP in the past. That may be my poor memory at play, and let’s retain some sense of perspective. We have a 200 point bank set up, so a c.30-35 point drawdown isn’t setting off panic alarms, but nonetheless we could do with seeing a reversal in fortune if only to restore confidence.
This is not the time to panic. I’m confident that neither RS3 nor FLP are doing so. So let’s buckle up and brace ourselves…and hope that the good times return quickly for these two tipsters under pressure.
