Strange week. Everything I touched seemed to lose, and then come Sunday and all was right in the betting world again. Scottie Scheffler winning the Phoenix Open golf tournament provided the profit. I’d taken him from the BookieBashing Golf Tracker and the fact that he was value and placed in a prominent position on the Weekly Metric Graph BB publish, meant I plumped for him at a price on the Exchanges (15/1) that I wouldn’t normally drop as low as. To be honest, fortune was on my side. It was him or Jon Rahm (who finished 3rd) and there really wasn’t much in it. Scheffler was the slightly longer priced of the two and when I looked at the Tracker, was showing a shade more +EV. I could very easily have gone the other way, though.
Having not had a return from any football coupon through the week, finding five winners on one proved a blessed relief and meant that the week showed a sliver of profit. And with the Lucky 15s I’d placed until Sunday proving as fruitless as the football coupons, to get a couple of winners and a place at 20/1 in one on Sunday pulled back the previously sizeable losses. Had the fourth horse placed, it would have been very nice indeed, but the nag fell at the first. Why does it always feel like you’ve been robbed when that happens.
