No Acca – 13/10/18

No joy again last week with the acca bet, with 3 of the 4 home teams losing.  Lincoln’s 1-0 win over Crewe was the only successful bet.

Betting bank now stands at -£40.00

With the International break this weekend, there’s not enough qualifying matches for the bet, so no acca this week.

Football Advisor Bank Builder – Update 7

The International break couldn’t come early enough for the Football Advisor Bank Builder services.

Bank Builder has continued its trend of 1 step forward 2 steps back. The strike rate for cycle 2 is currently 77.8%, still well below the expected range of 85-95%.

My betting bank stands at £137.31, which is down -£87.69, from the original investment + wild card of £225, -39%.

The Bank Builder Double Chance is also struggling, with a strike rate of 81%, which has left my betting bank down -59.7%. I imagine it’s pretty likely they’ll invoke the wild card on this one after the International break and hope the selections start to perform a bit better.

Week 8 – Backing Josh Wright’s Premier League Predictions

Josh Wright was back this week and previewed 4 of the weekend’s Premier League matches for WhoScored.

Josh was correct with the result in 3 of his predictions, but didn’t manage to find the correct score in any of the games. Backing each of the results for a £5 stake at bet363 odds, made a profit of £13.50, while the correct scores made a loss of £20.

Overall the correct scores are now showing a profit of +£17.50, while the correct scores are showing a loss of -£37.50.

I didn’t fair much better with the odds obtained on the bets, my current overall total now stands at -£16.64.

International break next weekend, so back, with the next update, in a couple of weeks.

4 Homes Acca – 06/10/18

The less said the better about  the acca on Tuesday Night with 2 draws and 2 away wins, the bet never looked like being landed.

Brentford could only manage 1-1 against Birmingham, despite the away side being down to 10 men from the 66th minute. Burton took the lead against Southend, but were unable to hold on to it and lost 2-1.

Newport were 2 down to Macclesfield within 11 minutes.  They battled back to draw 3-3 with a 97th minute equalizer, but a case of too little too late. Port Vale completed the poor night for the bet, losing 2-0 to the MK Dons.

If the bet’s not going to win, I prefer it when all the home teams fail, rather than just 1 letting it down.

Bank now stands at -£30.00

Over 2.5 Goals – System 4 Trial – Week 7

With Brentford and Birmingham drawing 1-1 at half time on Tuesday and then Birmingham going down to 10 men in the 66th I thought there was finally going to be a winning bet in the Championship matches. Alas it was not to be and it remained 1-1 at the final whistle.

Just the 3 qualifying matches for this weekend, starting with tonight’s match between Werder Bremen and Wolfsburg.

League Date. Time Home Team Away Team Odds
GB 05.10. 19:30 Werder Bremen Wolfsburg 1.83
ISA 07.10. 14:00 Lazio Fiorentina 1.78
NoE 07.10. 17:00 Bodo/Glimt Molde 1.70

Over 2.5 Goals – System 4 Trial – Week 6 Results

Just 4 of the 9 matches at the weekend managed 3 or more goals to land the over 2.5 goals bets. A loss of £15, reduces the overall profit down to £32.98.

Despite 7 of the 12 Championship matches scoring over 2.5 goals, the qualifying match between Bolton and Derby, could only manage a single goal.

That’s 5 qualifying matches so far this season from the Championship and none of them have managed over 2.5 goals. Looking back at last years figures there were 10 winners from 20 qualifying matches, so I’ll stick with them and hopefully fortune’s will turn around, starting with tonight’s game between Brentford and Birmingham.

Week 7 – Backing Josh Wright’s Premier League Predictions

No WhoScored Premier League previews from Josh Wright again this weekend, looks like he’s been away, so in his absence, Ben and Martin have again been holding the fort.

They didn’t make too bad a job of it, with 3 correct scores between them. Martin was spot on with his 2-0 prediction for Wolves v Southampton, while Ben weighed in with Spurs 2-0 win at Huddersfield and 1-1 in the clash between Chelsea v Liverpool.

Look’s like Josh has been doing some of the Champions League previews, so I expect he’ll be back in Premier League action next weekend.

Over 2.5 Goals – System 4 Trial – Week 6

Two of the 3 mid-week games produced over 2.5 goals to produce a small £5.25 profit.

This weekend the action gets under way on Friday evening, when Rayo Vallecano host Espanyol in La Liga in the first of 9 qualifying matches.

There are then 3 more games, including a big priced offering in the Championship, which hasn’t proved the best of leagues for goals for the system in recent weeks.

5 games on Sunday round off the weekend.
