"Bet of the Day" Monthly Update (August 2022)

Other Sep 01, 2022

Our free picks posted daily here at Pontspreadis.ca produced a solid win for the month of August 2022.  We finished with 28 wins and 18 losses (+4.25 units).

August was an excellent month for our free daily picks.

We ended up with a 28-18 W-L record, which produced a net gain of +4.25 units. We also enjoyed several winning days with multiple plays.

Our best day was a perfect 3-0 result in baseball in the middle of the month, when we swept all three plays. We also hit several nice underdogs in August.

We also took a few hits.  Our most disappointing day was early in August, when we lost what we thought was an easy pick on Liverpool in the English Premier League. Liverpool ended up in a tie, resulting in a loss of -3.80 units.  Ouch!

Nonetheless, it's nice to afford a bad loss with a healthy run of winning bets.

So, that brings us to the larger question – what's our daily long-term record?  

Here's the official data:

If you bet every single one of our free picks since October 1, 2021 you'd be +34.15 units over the .500 break-even mark, right now.  We measure each pick as ONE unit.  So, that's an average of about +3 units per month (win) even with the vig factored in.  Show us better results than that on any FREE PICKS site. Bottom Line: You can't.

This special feature is available exclusively at Pointspreads.ca and Spreads.ca.

August 2022 Recap

Baseball was our best result.  Soccer hurt us severely.  The CFL was about break even.

We broke even in the CFL, finishing with 3 wins and 3 losses, for a small loss with the vig.

As for other sports, we lost in European soccer (0-2 on those picks – including the Liverpool loser).  

We won two picks in the UFC.  2-0 was the result.

But Baseball was very, very good to us.  We ended up with 23 wins and 13 losses.

And even though it's not recorded here on our BET OF THE DAY results, we killed it in NFL preseason.  The first week, we produced a +56 unit gain on a single week of games betting round robin teasers.  This is likely the best percentage gain every on any free picks website for a single slate of NFL preseason games.  Again, show us better results elsewhere.  You can't.


So, if you combine NFL preseason and the usual articles and picks, we crushed it in August.

Oh, and yesterday we touted Serena Williams 2nd Round match at the U.S. Open to go OVER 20.5 games.  That recommendation won easily.

Yes, indeed – August was huge.

What's "Bet of the Day" Mean?


Each and every day, our "Bet of the Day" selects one game from the extensive wagering menu.  Sometimes it's hockey or basketball or football or baseball.  It could even be an event played in Europe, South America, or Asia.

‌‌We also provide a short synopsis of why we like that pick and also post the current odds listed at Spreads.ca.  Sometimes, we also make a full article out of a pick and post it here on Pointspreads.ca.


Why Make (and Give Out) Free Picks?


Making bets is easy.  Winning bets if tough.  Winning bets over the long haul is really, really difficult.

‌‌Fact is, we want to improve.  We also think it's important to be transparent.  What better way to establish trust with readers than the put a pick out there, give our reasons, and share an experience?  We're lucky to have many followers and bettors and we think the best way to strengthen those bonds is by sharing.

‌‌We're not always right, of course.  We lose our share of games.  But when we win, hopefully a few readers also earn a few bucks.

‌‌Personal Note:  Yes, the person writing this (me) bets every single one of the "Bets of the Day" here in Las Vegas.

FACT:  We're not looking for praise.  If you like what you read, what we would like for you to do is check out the amazing menu of odds and betting options at SPREADS.CA, which is Canada's top sports betting site and online casino.  Better yet, FOLLOW and SHARE us on Facebook.

Our 11-Month Betting Record


Here's the 11-month full breakdown, which is 100 percent accurate (Oct. 1, 2021 to August 31, 2022):

-- In October, we finished +5.35 units ahead for the month and ended up with a winning record.

‌‌-- Our success continued into November, which produced +4.10 units, and another winning record.

‌‌-- December was our best month of all, showing +6.82 units and another win.

‌‌-- In January, "Bet of the Day" ended with 17 wins and 9 losses, good for +5.35 units.

‌‌-- In February, we ended at 16 wins and 10 losses, which shows +4.95 units of profit.

‌– March ended at 17-14, with a net loss of -1.10 units.  We suffered two bad streaks, a four-game losing streak and three game losing streak.  We suffered a terrible loss on the final ‌day, dropping -3,10 units on the Flames.  Our best win as a +2.40 underdog on Montreal early in March.

-- April was a strange month, with the baseball season starting. We  spun our wheels in baseball, but did much better on hockey and basketball.  Note that we had 34 bets in all in 30 days.  The reason why there are more "Bets of the Day" is sometimes we post two plays on the same day.  The month ended with 18 wins and 16 losses, but just under one unit (-0.80) in profit.

-- May was an up and down month.  We started terribly, going 2-6, for a net loss of -5.55 units.  Later, we enjoyed an 11-3 run.  That put us back into the profit column.  We ended up with 20 wins / 16 losses for a net gain of almost 1.85 units.

-- June was a fast start, up +4 units early, then a crash with two bad streaks.  We ended up slightly ahead at 16-14 for the month, and .95 units to the positive.

-- And, in July we ended up with a small loss for the month.  We finished with 18 wins and 17 losses (-0.90 units).

-- August concluded with a 28-18 record, good for a net win of +4.25 units.  We also produced perhaps the best single week of wins in NFL preseason betting history (+56.0 units!).
