Double Dutch Monthly Update : August 2015
Every day on the Double Dutch, we give you the running total of where the service stands with regards to winners, strike rates, profit/loss and the ROI, but we think it might be handy for you (whilst possibly a rod for our own backs!) to have a review of the previous month to see the current form.
So, this is how August 2015 panned out for us…
We had 25 days of action (we take Sundays off!) and after 4 of our selections became non-runners, we were left with 96 selections, of which 22 were winners at a strike rate of 22.92%. And this is quite a bit lower than our overall strike rate, as you’ll see shortly, probably by about five winners less than expected.
Our 22 winners over 25 days could therefore have manifested itself into no winning doubles at all, if we’d been really unlucky or a maximum of 11 winners, so our 7 successful doubles is a decent return, but at 28% comes in a fair way short of our cumulative strike rate which even after a bad month still stands at 34.26%.
Overall this meant we made a fairly hefty loss, but in true geegeez style, we’ll still publish these figures! The problem wasn’t so much the lack of winning doubles, but the prices on our winning days were a touch shorter than usual.
We staked 50pts across the month and our returns of just 29.3pts made for a loss of some 20.7pts at an ROI of -41.40%, but despite this setback, we still enter September with 110.58pts of somebody else’s money to play with.
22 winning selections from 96 = 22.92%
7 winning bets in 25 days = 28%
P/L : +-20.70pts (-41.40% ROI)
And Overall :
662 winning selections from 2353 = 28.13%
209 winning bets in 610 days = 34.26%
P/L : +100.58pts (+8.25% ROI)
