A poor day for winners today bringing in only 15.95 points from 25 selections. Again the prices of the selections were 10% higher than the Betfair starting price on average, so a back/lay strategy would have produced profit. Backing to win relies on winners to produce the profit. Sometimes they don’t come, as we saw today, and sometimes they come in big numbers and at big prices. We must be due one of those days soon. Backing to win has produced over 10% profits so far this year and I am confident that May will prove to be the same by the end of month. It’s all down to the law of averages.
