Profitable Lays

Day 50 – 30 January:  Today 3.46 points. Total 9.05 points.

Overall Strike Rate is 53.31% with average odds of 2.97.
Overall return to £10 stakes is -£18.55 and to £25 stakes is -£46.37.

 

Folks, I know there was racing between 22nd and 29th December, but because I don’t get the printed version of the Racing Post I did not track these events. Apparently I have therefore ignored some 11.13 points of profit.

Bet Mentor

Before I give the results for the weekend’s bets I should say a bit more about yesterday.

The email arrived at the usual time and this is copied and pasted directly from it:

Bet A:
League: France
Match: Lyon – Dijon
Pick: Lyon -0,75 (Lyon to win)
Odd:1,79

Bookies: Pinnacle, Bet365, Betfair, SBO…

Good luck.

I could not find -0.75 available from any bookie other than Bet 365 and the price was very different at 1.575. I could see that the price they quote was available quite widely for the -1 market, there seemed little point in emailing the service as they always take around 24 hours to reply.

I have just looked at the results blog and they are giving the bet and the result on a -1 market. I do know the bet was a winner and the price they quote was available but I can only go on the advice I get via email.

Bit of a worrying lack of attention to detail there.

Anyway, onto the results:

LEVEL STAKES

RUNNING BANK £135.73

28/1 Lyon (-0.75) v Dijon £10 @ 1.575 WON +£5.75

29/1 Sunderland (-1) v Middlesboro £10 @ 2.00 LOST -£10

RUNNING BANK £131.48

 

RECOVERY BANK

28/1 Lyon (-0.75) v Dijon £10 @ 1.575 WON +£5.75

29/1 Sunderland (-1) v Middlesboro £10 @ 2.00 LOST -£10

RUNNING BANK £139.48

NEXT STAKE £20

BestLays – Final Report

Today brings my 4 weeks evaluation of the modified system to an end. After some considerable ups & downs along the way, we have ended the month 2.6pts in profit. This may not seem much of a return for a month of betting but we have come through some very poor conditions, cancelled meetings, etc and many systems are showing losses. So I don’t intend to Fail this service, though with such a result it hardly justifies a Recommended either.

The official results show just about a break even situation for this period, the difference being accounted for by my bot not being the same as the official one. I feel a bit like Eric Morecambe with Andre Previn here, because I was following the rules but not necessarily getting the same odds. The recommendation, if using a bot, is to take the lay price at 20 seconds before the start but since this is a time when prices can be changing rapidly, occasionally a horse is missed. This gives me some misgivings in the case of those who are operating manually, it’s quite possible for them to be laying or missing horses which may or may not be a valid selection at the official time.

In other respects, this is a well operated service: the emails arrive well in time, there is a results page on the website and also instructions for setting up the GHB, if you happen to have it. Like all laying systems, it will always have its bad days. For this month at least it managed to survive them without loss. My recommendation has to be a Neutral in light of this.

Bet Mentor

A different problem today. I can only find the exact bet advised being carried by one bookie and it’s at a much shorter price than the one quoted. The price quoted is right for a different handicap but not the one we’re after.

So far in the trial I have been able to get roughly the price quoted, sometimes a little higher and sometimes a little lower but always within an acceptable range.

I’m going to blog the bet as it written in the email but at the price I can find
