After a week of no betting, I could restrain myself no longer and started the week by betting on the World Cup play-offs with mixed results. A bit of luck on Saturday meant I didn’t lose any money (though I came real close!), and 3 correct predictions in a row on Sunday meant I ended the week up $163.84 with 6/8 predictions going my way.
Some quick thoughts on my action in week 46:
- My overconfidence in the Ireland and Denmark game ending up in a stalemate backfired horribly when Eriksen ran riot with a hattrick.
- I came super close to losing on Over 3 bets in the Roma v Lazio and Napoli v AC Milan games. Thanks to some late goals (with one at the very death in the Napoli game), I managed to avoid losing on both these games. Good thing I didn’t buckle under pressure and sell my action!
- Was extremely proud of my 3 predictions on Sunday coming through, and was only slightly disappointed that I didn’t bet more on the Inter game as I had the best feeling about that one.
All in all, it was a great week, and hopefully I’ll be able to keep it up in week 47, especially with UCL games coming up!
As usual, I won’t be including mix parlay’s in the prediction count, though I do include the profit & loss.
Correct Prediction Count (since blog inception) : (89/172) / 51.7%
