Seeing Stars

Back from my weekend jaunt to Paris, and a great time as always.

Sea The Stars was immense on Sunday, it was a privelige to be there to witness his performance - he's the best I've seen for sure. The atmosphere was electric, and it's a day I will always remember.

It wasn't a good weekend on the punting front - losing day for me at the track at Longchamp and two expensive days following the tipsters.

It didn't help that a few of the bets I placed on Saturday were unmatched - particularly the bet on Risk put up by Maths, but with network and signal coverage intermittent while travelling over on the train I was unable to really monitor where I was with all the bets.

Failing to get bets matched cost me something like £900 this weekend, which is pretty annoying - £250 win on Risk at 9/4 (price already gone on BF), the place part of the bets on Celtic Sultan and Blown It, the account bets from SLH on both days (price already gone on Saturday, and unable to get on the each way double on Sunday). Couple of loser unmatched as well but overall it cost me plenty.

I've taken this weekend off in the last two years and I'll probably do the same next year.

Having the weekend off wouldn't have helped that much though as most of the damage was done by Winabobatoo's football selections with only two winners (6/4 and 11/8 adv) from 15 bets over the weekend, meaning a ten point loss. A very bad week for the service, with just 3/11 last midweek - hopefully things will get back on track next weekend.

Football Elite's great start to the season continued with another two from two, Burnley at 13/10 and Mainz at 4.43 (adv), altough I had to take a fair bit shorter on Betfair.

I mentioned my concerns about my third football service, Best Under, and they certainly weren't eased by the performance on Saturday with two from seven correct. Three of the losers were advised at 1.55 - 1.60, as I said the other day where is the upside in betting at these prices ?

They sent an e-mail out on Sunday to say they are taking a break to "clear our minds, find out what went wrong and stand on our feet again to continue".

11 winners from 33 selections so far at an average price of between 4/6 and 8/11 for a loss of 93 points in five weeks - a terrible start !

Nothing doing on the golf either, with all four players failing to make the cut for the final rounds.

Things can only get better, altough I now have the results for Monday and Tuesday and they haven't yet !

More of that later....

A bit of damage done this end too over the weekend so you're not the only one!
Football Elite is the only footy service i have ever subscribed too and Matt deserves the plaudits he gets.
Regarding getting your bets on - I think you need to prioritise getting a new bet365 account (and let me know how you've managed it too!) ;-)
All the best, JP
