2013 was the second full calendar year for Stat of the Day, Geegeez' first real venture into daily tipping.
And although this "one-a-day" stats-based approach to bet selection suffered the obligatory peaks and troughs associated with betting on horses, it still managed to make a profit over the year.
It was always going to be tough to match the raging success of Year 1, but a profit was still achieved at a decent strike rate.
Without blowing the collective trumpets of both myself and Matt, we're proud of the figures accrued to date and we can safely say there aren't many (if any!) better free services around. In fact, most paid-for services would kill for our figures. And I know of at least one very similar service, with lesser results and a monthly subscription fee!
A full month-by-month analysis of SotD's results can, of course, always be found at
http://www.geegeez.co.uk/stat-of-the-day-month-by-month/ , but the overall picture for 2013 was as follows:
Number of bets/selections/pts wagered: 330
Winning Bets: 87
Strike Rate: 26.36%
Yearly Profit: 23.62pts
Profit on Stakes Invested: 7.16%
Since the 1st July, however, the figures are 45/117 = 38.46% SR for 48.14pts (+41.15% ROI) profit.
These are figures we're happy enough with and a repeat in 2014 would be most welcome.
Thanks for sticking with us/SotD,
Chris & Matt
