The third week in our DreamLays trial generated a remarkable 63 selections, all below SP odds of 3.0, to add to the 94 in the first fortnight. So after only 3 weeks of trialling, we have placed an almost dizzying 157 bets.
Once again, I am finding it difficult to do justice to a dramatic week. A quick perusal of the new betting banks below would suggest steady, if unspectacular progress. Would it were so! In fact, nothing could be further from the truth.
In practice, you do need to take a long view when using this service, as individual days vary from euphoria to disaster. The first day of the week produced dramatic progress, with a whole series of outstanding short-priced calls from our tipster. The rest of the week then drifted sideways, only then to finish with a dreadful slump on the last day, when we had no less than 7 winners (i.e. 7 losing bets).
However, the fact remains that all four of our bank balances moved north during the week, and all continue to show a healthy, overall profit.
The overall strike rate also remains stuck at a shade over 57%, almost identical to what it was one week (and 63 bets) ago. I still feel the strike rate is the key, and it has been impressive overall, given that we are laying below 3.0.
The latest balances, all of which began with a bank of £5,000, are as follows:
- £100 Fixed Liability – £5,928 – up £218 since last week
- £100 Fixed Stake – £5,998 – up £137 since last time
- 2% Fixed Liability – £5,828 – up £182
- 2% Fixed Stake – £5,885 – up £67
Fixed Stake betting continues to provide a smoother ride than Fixed Liability staking. It would appear at least to offer one way of taking some of the drama out of the DreamLays experience.
All four staking plans have produced at least 17% growth in 3 weeks, which is a remarkable feat.
