Two thoughts.

1. Straddle strangle needs significant movement to make money. You will essentially minimize your direction delta. So you need gamma on your side. Secondly, theta is highest for at the money options.
2. The market will pump up the volatility prior to the event. So if you are holding through the event, vol crush will, well, crush you.

If you use this strategy, you better make sure the stock moves and moves a lot in either direction, if the stock does not move, you lose!

And it would be wise to attend options training. There aren't many self taught options traders.
