The end of March sees the end of the 1st quarter of 2011 and at this point I always like to review my progress against what I achieved last year. As some of you may recall, I took the jump into full-time sports gambling back in January so I'm pleased to report that I've been able to hold my own with my p&l improving by over 69% compared to the same period 12 months ago.
The extra time I've had to analyse and research has definitely helped whilst the Cricket World Cup provided a good vehicle for generating returns, so it's easy to start getting ahead of myself and think 'anything's possible'. I'm fully aware however that the 2nd quarter has historically been my most critical time of the year so it was with relief that I heard the news that ITV have confirmed they'll be screening live IPL matches for the next 4 years. I can't underestimate the importance of this as with 74 matches per season and with interest likely to be high, there'll be many opportunities to take advantage of. The shape of the markets have changed over the last few years but for anyone new to betting on cricket it's an area you should look to explore.
Good luck if you do - just be cautious initially as the pace of the game is alot different to the 50 over equivalent we've been treated to over the last 2 months.
