After a quiet week 2, I knew it would not last for long as it all went helter skelter this week.
All in all, I managed to get lucky and escape again with a profit of $278.38 with 3/8 going right, though the numbers don’t tell the whole story.
So what happened?
I started the week well with two midweek Ligue 1 games going my way, with a profit of $100+ to boot, and I was confident I could maintain my momentum with a slow and steady week of progress.
Sadly, the best laid plans were shot to shit once the weekend came around as I had a torrid Saturday with 3/3 going wrong. The BPL really ain’t my league even though I watch it the most!
I figured I would make a grand comeback on Sunday betting on my favourite league, but that didn’t turn out too well either:
First, I placed a large bet on Over 2.5 in the Atalanta v Napoli game which was looking bleak with no goals until the 60+ minute.
Sadly, I compounded the matter by placing an even larger bet on over 1.5 goals when the score was 0-1, and the game ended with that scoreline which kept me in big trouble. A big parlay bet to save me (like how it did a couple of weeks back) didn’t turn out as well as it did last time, and I was staring down the barrel of a $721 loss for the week.
As the familiar feeling of desperation seized me, I checked the ongoing games and saw that the game between Bayern and Bremen was becoming a bona fide goal fest, and was 3-2 with about 10 minutes to go.
I whispered a prayer and placed the largest bet I’ve ever placed ($1000) on over 5.5 goals and switched over to watch the game on TV.
As luck would have it, within a minute of me watching, James Rodriguez chips the ball over the Bremen defence for Thomas Muller to slot past the keeper to make it 4-2, and I ended the week in the black!
This really isn’t for the faint hearted, and though I tell myself time and time again to bet conservatively and not chase losses, it just keeps happening and I dread the day my luck will run out.
As usual, I won’t be including mix parlay’s in the prediction count, though I do include the profit & loss.
