Not a memorable month but still a positive one considering all the misadventures we had to endure during May.
But let me explain. Firstly as I have already mentioned, our long-term bet with Baskonia was ruined by Granger's injury. Then despite winning both our bets on Promitheas, it was really a small miracle if you think that 3 key-players of Promitheas (Ellis, Milosevic and Hall) were discarded a few moments before the start of the match for various last-minute physical discomforts! And finally two really frustrating games lost backing Avellino. Don't get me wrong. I would have still made the exact same choices and especially the second game's closing odds at Pinnacle (2.28) pretty much tells the whole truth. We backed them at 2.85 so we again secured huge value with our bet but Avellino were simply unrecognizable that day. In the first game when Avellino performed much better and came close at upsetting Trento, we were unfortunately penalized by the officiating style of the referees who permitted an over-aggressive game from Trento.Under all these circumstances I'm even a little surprised we managed to escape with another 3 units of profit for the month!
There are only a few playoff games in Spain, Italy and Greece left for June, so now it's a good time to talk about the future schedule and plans.
Usually the summer break would coincide with the end of these playoffs but extraordinarily this year there will be a window of games (June 28 - July 2) for the World Cup 2019 Qualifiers. In case you don't remember the last couple of windows for the same competition proved extremely profitable for us with all 5 bets landing, so hopefully we will get a few more winners during the upcoming windows.
Here are the previous results:
24/11/2017 - Netherlands(@2.75) - Croatia 68-61 WON (+3.50u)
26/11/2017 - Ukraine - Turkey(@3.85) 60-67 WON (+4.20u)
27/11/2017 - Finland - Czech Rep.(@2.62) 56-64 WON (+3.24u)
25/02/2018 - Georgia - Germany(-firstname.lastname@example.org) 77-87 WON (+1.66u)
25/02/2018 - Iceland(@3.22) - Czech Rep. 76-75 WON (+3.33u)
For the rest of the summer we will be inactive and then we return again for another window of games (13-17 September) for the World Cup 2019 Qualifiers which practically marks the start of the new season for us. The rest of the competitions we are involved in start roughly around the end of September-start of October but there are no official schedules announced yet.
To sum everything up here are the dates to keep in mind:
- (June 28 - July 2) World Cup 2019 Qualifiers
- (September 13-17) World Cup 2019 Qualifiers
- End of September-start of October (Start of season 2018-19)
That's all from me for the time being. Obviously I can't possibly know yet how many picks there will be during June and the upcoming windows for the World Cup 2019 Qualifiers but in any case we will be here to take advantage of any opportunities.
I will get back to you guys around mid-September to give you an update of the new season schedule and plans.
Have an amazing summer!
