IT SEEMS A BIT LIKE A GOLDEN PERIOD FOR ME WITH ALL PLANS FIRING. MY PERSONAL PUNT IS GOING OKAY, ONLY ONE LOSING DAY THIS WEEK (SO FAR) AND NOT BAD PRICES EITHER.
We haven’t had any one report that anyone is losing following the plans , although I’m sure some may be as we still know of a few unhappy souls who still just invest on the TAB at tote price. Why they aren’t getting on with Rod at vicbet.com I have no idea. Best Of The Best on single bets on all mainland races and the evidence is in. On average across our membership our members are losing, when they lose, just 1%.
Back in the old days when I was involved with Iasbet and had a lot of input ( I was a top twenty shareholder back then and consulted to the newly formed business) Mark Read told me in one meeting, that our Winform Members were losing 4% across the board (we had thousands of our subscribers with accounts there in the 90’s) and I indicated that I was disappointed as by and large our selections were winning. You know what Mark Read told me that day?? “Our average account holder is losing between 8% and 12%.”
Of course back then you could only take fixed price or the Iasbet price which was the TAB price plus a bonus. These days the bookmakers margin is far slimmer but as I have learned from Vicbet. Their business has improved dramatically because now they get bets across the board whereas before the punters would only back the top four in the market. But now it is possible to make a genuine book.
Remember that the average margin the punter has to beat is around 20% against you. So if you are losing less than that you are already better than most punters.
