I'm making these posts weekly as a way to track my personal pre-game handicapping results along with my live betting action on Belgian Teams. These posts will always contain some insights when it comes down to my general approach and what I do to increase my chance of beating the market.
This was one of those weeks where the officially shared bets that I track (both pre-game and Live) performed good but I still ended up with a minor loss because of the smaller bets I'm taking as a way to build more volume. I do keep personal stats on these and they have been profitable so far this season. These are the numbers out of the 960 bets I placed so far.
Limited stakes are the bets where the maximum available is lower than what I want to bet. Some of these markets have only 100€-200€ limits especially when the odds I want are only available at one of the bookmaker options on Sportmarket Pro. So If I want to take half a unit on something and I'm only able to get 0.4 units in on it I count it as limited stakes. Results on these are usually the best since there is a reason why only this much is available.
I'm still not very happy with my average stakes and feel I'm still way too conservative right now. I noticed this during Live betting on Saturday so I stepped them up a bit and guess what, those bets ended up losing which is partly the reason for the minor loss this week. I will keep In mind for next week to just slightly increase the stakes on all my bets a bit and I should also be more willing to take a bit higher odds.
I will keep sharing my medium stake sized and higher live bets on the SBC Discord Server as I have been doing for about a year now.

I really enjoy keeping a personal results graph all season long an see how it all evolves. Betting has so many similarities to trading that one could almost start doing a technical analysis. Parabolical move early on and a long slow grind down afterward now seeing a trend reversal hoping the low is in. Volumes are on the low side and it's catching up to long term moving averages.
Let me know in the comments how your betting week was!
