There could be hell toupee..

Latest GOP polls show Trump back in front. Latest price for him to get nomination on betfair is 4.9-5.2 and best bookmaker offer is 7/2. Good news for us as we are on @ 20/1. Potentially bad news for U.S. but can't see him beating Hillary if that turns out to be the H2H....

The Professor gives them all a lesson

Having looked down and out after losing two matches in the round-robin, the player they call the professor then beats the players ranked two (Halep), three (Muguruza) and five (Kvitova) in the world to take the title. She traded as high as 110.0 on betfair during the tournament.

Radwanska has won the biggest tournament of her career (and two million dollars).

It's been a losing week on the blog (thanks to too much involvement in the Breeders' Cup) however it's nice to end the service with a winning bet. We didn't win much on the WTA finals though because A-Rad's earlier match losses referred to above prevented her winning the group.

There's a good example today as to why it's fruitless to carry on betting.

I thought I'd have a look at the prices for Aggie to win the Australian Open. As you'll see she was/is 33/1 with several firms. Here were my options:

Ladbrokes - account closed.

Betfred - offered £2 ew @ 33/1

Skybet - offered £1.52 ew @ 33/1

Paddy Power - offered £2.50 ew @ 33/1

So, a waste of everyone's time I think you'll agree.

The final figures for the blog service are shown above in the heading. We've just maintained the 20% profit margin although outstanding ante-post bets will affect the final figure: 2015 bet record

There will be around eight or nine long term ante-post bets carried forward to 2016 and beyond. The football wagers look toast. But the political wagers are more promising in particular: 20/1 Trump Republican nominee, 12/1 George Osborne next Con leader and Teresa May 20/1 & 12/1 next Con leader.

Good luck with your bets going forward.
