You can’t win ’em all. That’s something all sensible punters know. They also know that there is no such thing as a sure thing. A truth about betting on sport that was proven again in October when certain horses priced at odds on failed to win, Cue Card and Bristol de Mai among them.
But members of VG Tips did enjoy some tasty wins last month, including all 5 racing tips on one day, and a 7/1 winning football treble.
What I thought might be terrible day of racing on Tuesday October 25th, turned out to be an excellent one for members who backed my five selections. They all won! A 100% record. Profit assured whether you backed any or all of the horses as single bets, or put them in a 5 way accumulator that would have seen a £10 stake turned into £776.42.
Member Louis contacted me to say: “What a day. I did €20 accumulator on all 5 selections returning €990.”
At the end of the month a football accumulator paid off. Only a treble this time, but all profit counts when you calculate your annual profit at the end of the year.
Sheffield United, Plymouth Argyle and Stoke City all won and my tenner on that treble returned £70 profit. Result!
Annual profit is what matters. That is how you should judge your success. Be it in for the long term. Beating the bookie is a marathon, not a sprint. You must be prepared to stay the distance.
Profitable punting is not a get rich quick scheme. Others may tell you it is. They are fibbing.
Let me assure you, if you want to beat the bookie each and every year – as I have done since 1998 – then you need to be a patient punter.
You should look upon it as an additional annual income. You’ll not be able to tell the boss to stick the job. That’s as likely as winning the lottery.
You must be able to take the rough with the smooth. To enjoy winning more than you hate losing.
