Five bets for this weekends Portfolio.
1st was Freiburg v Wolfsburg on Friday night and a BTTS “Yes” trade. A great start after Freiburg scored after 2 mins, 5 mins later it was 1-1 and the bet was landed for a 1pt profit. The game finished 2-5. In my write up I made reference to Freiburgs’ “leaky” defence. Crikey, it was leaky wasn’t it?
Second match was in Serie A; Udinese v Roma and we were hoping for a Draw/Home outcome. Roma took the lead in the 21st minute. Udinese looked lack lustre and I feared we would lose this one even then. It was still 0-1 at HT and the bet lost. In the 2nd half Udinese pulled a goal back, then had a player sent off. Ended 1-1. A loss of 1pt.
Next Cagliari v Sampdoria. We had a HT/FT Home/Home and 2pts riding on it. Cagliari scored after 18 mins and held on until HT. There were plenty of changes to lock in some profit on this game, before HT and after. With half the bet in the bag the rest was downhill. After the 2nd goal after 52 minutes it seemed unlikely we would lose on this. It ended 3-1 with Sampdoria scoring a late consolation goal. A cracking 6.2 points profit.
Short after this was Hannover 96 v Eintract Frankfurt in the German Bundesliga. We were hoping for a BTTS “NO” outcome and had 1pt on it. In these matches you just keep checking live score and hope you see 0-0. Well I did, and I did. It ended 0-0. Another 1.62 points in the old satchel.
Last up on Sunday night was another Serie A match between Lazio and Fiorentina. I had this as Lazio DNB. A new one for the Portfolio. When Fiorentina scored after 21 mins I knew we were up against it. The 2nd goal shortly after HT sealed our fate. A loss of 3pts on my banker.
So overall a profit of 4.82 points adding to the 4.1 last week for overall total of 9.82 points.
If you missed the bank and staking walkthrough it’s HERE
A starting bank of £1000 with a £10 a point stake would see you in profit by £98.20 and an increase to your bank of 9.82%. There are lots of exciting ways you can grow you bank. i.e After week 1 if you added the profit to you initial bank, the new amount per point would be £10.41. (£1000 + £41) / 100 = £10.41. The 2nd week see £10.41 x 4.82 = £50.17. So the bank then becomes £1041 +£50.17 = £1091.17. The new amount per point then becomes £1091/100 = £10.91 moving forward. This can be applied in reverse too, so a loss of 5 pts next week would see the bank at £1036.62 and a new stake of £1036/100 = £10.36. This makes it all very complex and messy. I prefer to keep my bank at the same amount. As you increase your winnings you can make adjustments to you bank size as your confidence grows. The idea of a bank is to keep a structure in place and protect yourself from losses. In truth if the Portfolio bets after 7 weeks were at -30 points I would be typing to myself. Quite right too. 🙂
I said at the very start of the post I made listing this week ends portfolio trades, that I was under pressure to come up with the goods after a good start and high expectations. It’s going to be even worse next week!! May have something during the week. Keep a look out. If you don’t want to forget subscribe. I’ll send out a heads up if I post any trades.
Feedback welcome as I know it will be all good 🙂 hey you can’t slag me off for giving away money can you? Cheers MG
