Another very poor month for the selective bets I take some extra on in BTC. Being selective does not automatically mean there will be a high win rate. I talk in many of my posts how tight the lines and odds on the betting markets are being set and how difficult it can be to actually beat them over time. The ups and downs are part of it all and nobody can avoid them. It's how someone handles them what often makes the difference between winning or losing in the longer run. I did tone things down a bit this month on the pre-game Belgian Team bets I fully handicap myself after being somewhat in a bad streak. Most bets I took in the NFL also have gotten into a bigger downswing.
Looking at the bigger picture though everything is still going exactly as planned and hoped still being at a +6.32% ROI despite the 3 consecutive losing months dropping nearly -12 units. Having proper bankroll management can be quite boring, but during times like this it really shows why it is needed and allows to handle any kind of swing that comes at you as long as one is able to maintain disciplined.

IMPORTANT !Past results don't guarantee Future Results. There are very few people that are equipped financially and psychologically to handle the ups and downs of gambling on a daily basis. If you're not a professional, every instinct you have will attempt and probably will sabotage your success. Human nature runs completely contrary to being successful at gambling. These bets are posted as a way to help myself in order to stay disciplined, always hold yourself accountable if you end up following. Proper Bankroll Management can highly decrease the risk of heavy losses!
I look forward to the new year and will continue posting the bets I take some extra on in BTC while following up with the results. No telling where things will go but there will be a bounce to the upside at one point. Over time I might replace these by bets taken in SCR on Betscorum, but the overall activity on the exchange and offered sports first needs to increase quite some first before I would be able to do so.
