I'm happy to see that I had a winning month, although I haven't yet recovered from October's losses. I made a few changes in October, and I'm very happy with the results so far.
While I still have the Banker Bets service for a little while longer, I quit betting it in October. Something that I'm really excited about is finally coming up with a soccer (football) system. I live in a country where soccer is the most popular sport, and I've grown to like it.
The main European leagues are mainly played in the morning to early afternoon (my time), so that puts my money into play a whole lot more. Soccer in the morning, and the American sports at night. On the weekends, that puts my money into play from the early morning hours to late at night, so I'm very happy with this.
I made a total of 151 bets. I went 81-61, giving me a 57% win rate. I put a total of $23,256 into action, and made a net profit of $1,182.24, producing a 5.1% yield.
Converting that to units (or points), I risked a total of 151 units, and won 7.68 units.
I did the best in soccer, and I did the worst in college basketball.
I made the most money at 5Dimes, and I lost the most money at Bookmaker. I made most of my bets at Bookmaker.
I've really enjoyed just betting my own picks this month, except for the few Banker Bets I put in. Work is taking up a lot of my time (peak season in the marketing industry!), so it's easy for me to get distracted and not be able to put in bets all day long.
I'm going to keep it to just my own system picks for at least the foreseeable future.
I had 135 bets, and went 71-56, giving me a 55.9% win rate. I put a total of $20,665 into action, and I made a net profit of $1,147.63, producing a 5.6% yield.
I didn't bet too much of these this month. There were 13 bets, and they went 9-3, giving me a 75% win rate. I put a total of $1,989 into action, and I made a net profit of $49.18, producing a 2.5% yield.
Since I started back on December 5, 2016, I have made a total of 3,157 bets. My total record is 1734-1366, giving me a 55.9% win rate.
I have put a total of $257,071.50 into action, and have made a net profit of $9,627.29, producing a 3.7% return on turnover. My Return on Capital is 299.92%.
Converting that to units (points), I've made a total profit of 118.23 units, which is about a +0.33 unit per day profit (10 units average monthly profit).
The average odds of my bets are -108, and my average bet size is risking $81.44.
I have made the most profit in the NFL, with MLB coming in 2nd, and NBA trailing in third. College football has produced the worst return for me so far.
I made the most money placing my bets at 5Dimes, and I've lost the most money at Bookmaker. I've made the most of my bets at BetOnline, with Pinnacle coming in 2nd, and 5Dimes in 3rd.
Here's the active systems/handicappers that I'm currently using:
Well, I have been at this for 360 days now. That's an average of 8.8 bets per day. My average daily profit currently sits at $26.74, which is an average monthly profit of $813.42.
And here's my Profit Performance graph:
As you can see, my profit has been up and down lately. I've learned that this is how sports betting goes. Peaks, followed by valleys. Sometimes you trade profit and losses for months and months, then you have a killer month.
Over the past 4 months, I've profited $6,120.15, which is an average monthly profit of $1,530.04. I'm very happy with how this is progressing. I'm only a few days away from my first full year, but I'm going to wait until 2018 to make my first ever annual post.
It's been a wild and crazy year, and I've already learned so much. I can't wait to hit a 4 figure average monthly profit, and my main goal in 2018 is to have my betting income surpass what I make at my day job.
2018 is going to be an awesome year!
