The weekly betting review is a feature that will attempt to analyse the previous week’s bets, look at what went right and what went wrong.
It has three main reasons for coming into being;
- For you, the reader, who may want an insight into my selections, the reasons for choosing them, reasons for grouping them together, reasons for letting some go etc.
- For me it will be a good tool to help me elucidate my own thoughts and spot my own flaws going forward.
- Hopefully it will engender a little discussion and interaction. While I am here on the pretence that I have something to offer you, there is plenty I can learn from you, too.
Do get involved. Ask me questions and question my reasoning. This should be a two-way street so lets start winning together.

You know when you get that feeling that things aren’t going to go your way? That happened on Friday night when the first bet of the week was beaten by a 91st minute penalty.
As hard as it might seem things went downhill from there. There are far too many zeros in the returns column for me to defend my picks this week but I do defend some of them.
It looks to me like this week and this month are going to have to be put down to bad luck, for the most part. Variance is something I have to deal with and all I can do is accept it and move on.
The only positive to take from this week is that I kept my discipline, didn’t chase losses and still have an excellent record over the course of the year.
I could go all out trying to recover the losses by increasing my stakes with a few select bets. But I choose to do the opposite. Come the next round of fixtures I will be in bounceback mode.
I will reduce my stakes a little and be more selective with my bets. I will return to my standard bet size once I get that winning feeling again. That could be before the year is out or it may be into the new year.
