To be honest I was very close to taking a break. With my ROI down to below 3% and profit around 75pts I was asking the question, is this really worth the effort?
I’m talking about my own gambling, not the progress of the Tipster Comparison site, that will continue to slowly expand.
I was just frustrated with my results and had 8 losing days on the spin. The more I lost the more obsessed I became with how my bets were faring. That’s not a good mindset to be in.
That has seen my profit boosted to +97pts, but my overall ROI is still well below my 5% target, currently just 3.37%. Anyhow it’s a step in the right direction.
In recent weeks I started following Steve Rawlings again but he’s quickly been crossed off the list. With so many great golf tipsters around, to follow one that doesn’t track their profit/loss is just bonkers.
Sadly my journey following DS Snooker came to an end as my ROI fell below the 5% mark. I still made a profit of +8.82pts but it’s important I trial other tipster services too.
Profit Tips is currently the highest ranked football tipster on the site but since increasing my stakes the results have tailed off a little. That’s come at a bad time so has seen my ROI drop to 5.88%. The stake change will mean that’s a little skewed so I’ll keep the faith up until 500 bets and then see where I lie. I’m currently on 281.
SPTips continues to shine. I’m up +19.2pts with a ROI of 22.73%. Amazing results and he’d be my number 1 recommended football tipster right now.
I’m looking to change my mindset a bit. It might effect how quickly I get on bets, but I want to focus on building the comparison site and getting more sports covered and more profiles added.
So the big step I’ve made is to delete Twitter, Telegram, Flashscores and my bookmaker apps from my phone. The thought being when I’m not on the computer I can just switch off. Yes I will miss bets at times but that’s happening anyway. Hopefully this will reduce the time I spend placing and focusing on results etc.
