Record Keeping of Betting History
 
:wavey:

Ok so before I never used to keep track of my bets placed, winnings, losses etc but that is something I want to do now as it definitely sounds like a sensible thing to do.

I was hoping someone culd give me tips/ideas of what or how my spreadsheet should look like. I mean I can do a very basic one with winnings and losses but is there anything else I should keep note of? e.g record by sports? by month? ROI%? etc

Also if anyone is kind enough could you send me an example of what you use to keep track? I promise I will not give to anyone else, just so it gives me an idea since this is all new to me.

Thanks in advance for your help :wavey:

I am using excel, which looks like this:



You can download it yourself here. Everything is done, the only things you need to fill in yourself are the date, the bet, the odd, the stake, the result and then win or loss; it will calculate the rest automatically.

Last time I advised on this was the time when Twist trolled the gamblers forum and you stuck your oar in...take a step back in time by 7 months or so :wavey:

when you say "stuck your oar in" and mean I criticised in anyway feel free to give me a link or quote me on it becuse I have no idea what you are talking about. As to Twistserve (I think that is who your refer to) he was the biggest fool I had come across on the internet with respect to gambling

Dahil - thanks a lot, I manipulated your spreadsheet to tailor for me. Appreciate your help :)

Why would you say it's so important?

Probably a couple of reasons:
- If you keep a record of your bets, preferably by sport, you will get a transparent view of what sports you are more successful in and on the flip side those that you are struggling in. It then gives you a chance to scale back or even eliminate betting on that sport going forward to it helps you focus on your strengths
- Its simply good practice - gives you an idea of your overall position and helps for those gamblers that set targets (like myself) whether it be on a daily/monthly/yearly basis of what return you want to achieve
