Round up of Nicspicks 2012

First of all, a big thank you to regular followers of the blog / Twitter over the course of the year. It's been the fourth successive year of big golf profits now, amassing nearly 1000 units of profit to 1 unit e/w staking in the golf betting since blog inception.....


A breakdown of 2012 results (includes selections on my Unibet column) can be found here (+237.79u) with a list of this year's big winners from the blog only here. It's been a quieter year than usual for Nicspicks in terms of the amount of winners but we had a few big ones along the way which gave us a return on investment of 39.37% (to 1u ew stakes).

I generally only covered one event per week on Nicspicks too as I had a much bigger workload with my freelance commitments etc but I've plenty of ideas going forward and opened up the blog comments (underneath) if you have any thoughts or questions about the season just gone or ideas for 2013.

Regarding the football, it has taken somewhat of a back seat on the blog of late as I've taken a step back, working on and trying to optimise new strategies. The game has changed recently with 451/433 taking over from 442 and markets are getting ever more competitive and odds compilers a lot more knowlegeable.

I'm ready to go now and I've separated the golf from the football sections for the coming year; you can click the 'football' tab in the navbar or use the feed below and to the right to access my new premium football tips site.

Feedback welcome below, have a great Xmas

  1. Hi Bryan,

    Have you ever analysed which price brackets are most successful for you on the golf outrights? a much underrated form of analysis, IMO.

    ps. i'd lose the 'football' mouse cursor - its infuriating!

    best of luck for 2013. I usually take a look at your thoughts.

  2. Hi Mark,

    Funnily enough I've been thinking about recording this over the last while. No definite records as of yet but from experience I would say most winners come from the 33-66/1 bracket in full field tournaments without a very strong favourite (Woods/Rory/Donald).

    If I'm pricing up a field I'd generally give around 35% of it to the top 10 in the betting with 45% 11-50 in the market and circa 15% the field
