Odds Monkey Review

We originally reviewed Odds Monkey back in March 2016 when it was just an odds matching tool, but a huge amount has been added to the site since then, so we thought it was high time for an update to look at all the tools now available.

We have tested all the new features for a month and here are the results from our trial:

 

Profit/loss:    +£1045
Bank Growth:    105%
Cost:   £15 per month or £150 per year
ROI:   N/A
Average number of bets:    Up to 30 per day
VERDICT:   PASSED
Rating: 

 

 

What Does Odds Monkey Offer Now?

Odds Monkey used to be just an odds matching tool. How things have changed!

It is now a comprehensive matched betting package including pretty much everything you could possibly ask for if you have any interest in free bets and bonuses.

It represents exceptionally good value to get all the different things it offers as part of just one package. 

You can go right through from a novice matched bettor right up to a professional here, with all the tools and training included. 

When you sign up to Odds Monkey, you will get all of the following included:

  • List of New Account Offers
  • List of Existing Account Offers
  • Odds Matcher
  • Betting Calculator
  • Racing Matcher
  • Each Way Matcher
  • Acca Matcher
  • Dutching Tool
  • Tennis Matcher

We will go through each one of these in turn below together with our overall view of Odds Monkey.

 

Free Bet Offers for New Accounts

As an Odds Monkey subscriber you get full access to their lists of free bets and offers for opening new accounts various bookmakers. 

At the time of writing there are 38 new account offers to take advantage of, with full guides on how to do these offers. 

The offers are set out into neat categories such as “bet x get x,” “risk free bet” and “rollover bonus” which helps to differentiate them as these offers are actually quite different when you get down to claiming them

There is a summary for each offer as well, as shown below:

Plus once you have done the offers, you tick them off as completed on the list so you know which ones you’ve done. 

The guides are very helpful and everything is set out very clearly. 

 

Free Bet Offers for Existing Bookmaker Accounts

If you already hold accounts with the bookies, then as you know you will sometimes receive free bet offers and bonuses to incentivise you to bet with that bookie.

Odds Monkey includes a list of these offers as well, with a very useful “Daily Offer Calendar” which lists all the offers for the day, together with details of the offers and links through to the bookie’s website. 

This calendar will be your meat and drink if you are a regular matched bettor.

There are also lists of casino, games and bingo offers included with the Odds Monkey subscription.

 

 

The Odds Matcher

The Odds Matcher is a tool for comparing odds between bookies and betting exchanges such as Betfair to make matched betting easier. It provides a table listing all the best opportunities for selecting the best value matched bets.

When you are doing matched betting, you are looking ideally for bets where the odds with the betting exchanges (e.g. Betfair, Betdaq, Smarkets) are as close to the bookies’ odds as possible.

When the exchange odds are the same as the bookies’ odds (or very close to it), then it allows you to maximise the money you will make from each free bet or bonus offer. 

It will also save you time, as otherwise you would have to find all the bets yourself which would be very time-consuming.

Below is a look at the live table for using the Odds Matcher and setting up your matched bets.

In the table above you can see the date and time of the event, the sport, the race or match time and the selection.

Then in red you have the rating, which tells you how much value there is in the bet. The you have the relevant bookmaker and betting exchange and the odds, which you can click through to.

Where the rating is above 100, this means the betting exchange odds are above the bookies’ odds for that selection.

 

 

The Betting Calculator

The betting calculator allows you to calculate exactly how much money you need to place on each part of the matched bet and how much you will make, as below:

 

Racing Matcher 

The Racing Matcher is an amazing tool that looks at each upcoming race, the offers that are available for it and the best odds matches for it.

So for example below, you have the 12.45 at Southwell, with three offers available – £50 free with Bet365, £25 free with Betfred and £25 free with Totesport.

Then you click on one of the offers and it opens up the odds matcher with the best odds available with the exchanges to execute the offer. 

This is a nice way of working your way through the racecard in an afternoon and taking advantage of lots of free bet offers.

 

The Eachway Matcher

The Eachway Matcher allows you to identify value in each-way bets and place them in a risk-free manner. 

This occurs when the place odds with the bookie are good enough that you can guarantee a profit whatever happens.

You can generally make £5 – £10 per bet and there are normally multiple opportunities per day. Be careful with these though as the bookies can limit you fairly quickly if you are doing lots of them. 

 

The Acca Matcher

The Acca Matcher is a tool to take advantage of the bookies’ offers on football accumulators. So you can back an accumulator with the bookies and lay each leg on the exchanges and (presuming the odds don’t change dramatically) lock in a profit.

You can generally make around £10 per offer on this and there are normally a few to do each day during the regular football season. 

 

Dutching Tool

The dutching tool is a means of finding arbs between the bookies. So for example in a football match you would back the home team with one bookie, the draw with another bookie and the away team with another bookie, guaranteeing a profit whatever the outcome.

However, the bookies hate arbers so you would be risking account closures by doing this very often. 

 

Tennis Matcher

There is also a Tennis Matcher with tennis offers and an odds matcher to find you the closest match between the bookies odds and the exchanges. 

However, there are not as many tennis offers as racing or football ones and it appears the last ones were during the US Open which was some months ago.

 

Premium Membership versus Standard Membership

For a fee of £15 per month or £150 per year, you can get premium membership which gives you access to all the above, which is quite amazing. Considering how much money you can make using all the different tools, it is fantastic value. 

Standard membership gives you access to a couple of offers and guides as an introduction.

 

Overall Verdict

Odds Monkey is a one-stop shop for matched bettors and has a wealth of tools and guides at your disposal.

The claim on their website is that you can make “up to £1500 per month” and whilst we usually dismiss such claims as nonsense, in this case it is actually realistic.

In one month we made just over £1,000, which for a £15 subscription fee is quite amazing.

As with all matched betting, you do have to put the time into it to make it worthwhile and the more time you put in the better you will do.

It is also worth bearing in mind that if you are outside the UK and Ireland, Odds Monkey will have limited appeal as you won’t get access to all the free bets and bonuses that we have here.

Overall though Odds Monkey is an excellent product and one we are happy to recommend.

Tennis Genie – Full Review

 

Tennis Genie is a tennis tipster providing selections for the ATP, WTA and Challenger tours. They provide an average of one tip per day and staking is between 1 and 10 points per tip.

We have yet to pass a tennis tipster or betting system here at Honest Betting Reviews, so have we finally found a winner with Tennis Genie?

Well we are pleased to say – yes, we have.

With a strong profit of 60 points achieved during our three month trial, Tennis Genie is the first tennis service to pass a live trial here on the site and receive a PASSED rating.

It’s a nice, simple service to follow with just one selection per day on average and a good strike rate of over 40%, so a high proportion of winners.

Here are the results for the trial in graph format:

As you can see, a nice steady rate of profit over the trial, with some small ups and downs along the way.

So with the new tennis season just about to get under way, it’s a good time to find a winning tennis tipster.

We are happy to give Tennis Genie a recommended rating and now could be a good time to sign up.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use:  With just one tip per day on average provided by e-mail and plenty of time to get the bets on, it’s one of the easier services to follow we’ve come across.   

Availability of prices:  The prices do tend to reduce by the time the matches start, so best to get the bets on as soon as possible after receiving the tips and to use the exchanges to find the best price, which are often better than the bookies. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was over 40%, so losing streaks shouldn’t be too bad here and a there is decent ratio of winners. 

Advised Betting Bank: No betting bank was advised, but we used a 100 point bank, which should be sufficient to cover most eventualities, although staking is quite variable at between 1 and 10 points, so a slightly bigger bank could be used just to be on the safe side. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are £59.99 per month or £499.99 per year.  

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

It’s great to finally have a tennis service to recommend, after numerous misses from previous ones we have trialed here on the site.

Tennis Genie achieved an excellent total of 60 points profit over our trial, at a return on investment of 19%, which is very good for tennis.

With a decent strike rate of over 40%, you should see a steady stream of winners when following the tips.

So if you are looking for some tennis tips to kick off the new season in 2017, you could do a lot worse than giving Tennis Genie a go. Highly recommended.

Tennis Genie – Results Update

7th December 2016

A small decline for Tennis Genie since our last update, with 5 points lost since our last update. That means they are now 54 points up for the trial overall.

You can view full results here.

With the tennis season having more or less finished for the year now, there may not be too many more selections but we will keep the review going for a little while longer to keep track of any more tips that come through.

So far so good for Tennis Genie though.

Back soon with more updates.

Tennis Genie – Results Update

18th November 2016

Things continue to go well for Tennis Genie, who have an additional 17 points profit since our last update.

That means they are now 59 points up for the trial overall.

You can view full results here.

Results were helped with a maximum 10 point win bet on Cilic to beat Djokovic in Paris, which netted 36 points of profit.

Hopefully things will continue in the same vein for them over the rest of the trial.

Tennis Genie – Results Update

The positive form continues for Tennis Genie, who have added a further 7 points profit since our last update a few weeks ago.

That means they are now 42 points up for the trial overall so far.

Good stuff so far then and it’s easy to follow with just one or two tips per day on average.

Back soon with more updates.

Tennis Genie – Results Update

2nd October 2016

It’s been a good start to our trial of Tennis Genie, who are 35 points up so far after two weeks of tipping.

You can view full results here.

Staking is quite variable, with stakes from 1 to 6 points depending on the confidence in the pick. So far the big picks have done well for them.

We have yet to find a winning tennis tipster so this is a promising beginning for the Tennis Genie and let’s hope for more of the same over the course of the trial.

Tennis Genie – New Review

19th September 2016

We are yet to find a winning tennis betting system or tipster here at Honest Betting Reviews, which is quite surprising really.

Tennis is supposed to be the easiest sport to profit from and has excellent value in terms of the over-round from the bookies.

Plus there is always great liquidity on Betfair for tennis matches.

But to date sadly there hasn’t been anything we’ve found that consistently makes profit from betting on tennis.

So it is with cautious optimism that we approach our next tennis tipster, Tennis Genie.

The results on the website look very impressive, with apparently over 1500 points profit made since the service was set up in 2012. 

That has been achieved with a strike rate of close to 60% and a return on investment of over 36%.

That figure is incredibly high for tennis and for something with such a strong strike rate of 60%.

If that could be maintained during our trial and beyond, we may have found something special here and finally a winning tennis tipster.

However, only time will tell of course.

So we will get our three month trial of Tennis Genie underway and will report back soon on how things are going.

In the meantime you can check out Tennis Genie here.

Football Trading Alerts – Full Review

 

Football Trading Alerts is a trading system for Betfair from the same team behind Pre-Match Trading and Trade the Horses, among other products.

It is in many ways in a spin-off of their In Play Trading tool, which uses in-play statistics to identify where there is value in trading a particular market.

For example, in-play statistics may indicate that one team is dominating a match, creating lots of chances, having lots of possession and corners and looking very much like they may score soon. So the tool would give a rating suggesting to back that team (or lay the draw if the game was drawing).

Or it may that the stats indicate that both sides are creating lots of chances and the game is very open, so backing overs in the over/under market may be the thing to do.

Anyway, what Football Trading Alerts does is rather than you having to monitor lots of markets manually, it does the hard work for you and tells you when to trade a particular match.

So for instance you receive an e-mail like this:

 

PL / Polish Cup / Arka Gdynia v Bytovia Bytow Nov 29 at 19:30

https://www.betfair.com/exchange/football/event?id=28026285

Time played: 66′
Lay the draw: £10 @ 1.97

Lay Under 2.5: £75 @ 1.06

Back 1-1: £3 @ 12.5

 

You then just follow the instructions and execute the bets they suggest and that’s it, you are done!

Despite the name, you don’t actually need to trade these selections, you can just leave them to run. So it really is very simple to follow.

But how did it get on under a live three month trial?

Well we are pleased to say it performed excellently, producing £629 profit. The very most you could lose on the majority of bets was £35, with a few at £39. 

The alerts had a good strike rate of 60%, meaning more than of the bets were winners. 

Here is a look at the profit graph for the trial:

A pretty steady growth path over the trial – good stuff. 

Making a profit from football is notoriously hard so we are delighted to have come across a system that has a clear, logical approach that you can understand as to why it works. 

The power of their approach is demonstrated by their long-term results, which show profits of well over £4,000 since starting up in January 2015.

Now we can’t verify the results from before our trial started, but we have no reason whatsoever to doubt them as the results given on their website for the period of our trial matched exactly the selections that were given out.

 

 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use:  The only thing to be aware of – and we did mention this a few times during our trial – is that you may not be able to follow all of the alerts that are given out.

That is because the selections are sent out for live matches and you need to be able to access Betfair when the alerts are sent out. You might be out, at work, or otherwise engaged. It is not like tipping services, that for example give tips out in the morning and then you have a few hours to get the bets on before the matches or races start.

However, at the same time you have a good idea of when trades will be sent out – busy footballing weekday evenings or weekends from 3pm, so it is not like you need to be on 24 hour call or anything.

And of course even if you miss a few trades it is not the end of the world. They clearly have an edge over the market, so over the course of time you should still do very well if you are trading the majority of the alerts.

Availability of prices: This is all about trading quickly, so occasionally by the time you receive the alert and log in, a goal will already have been scored. But then on other occasions, the odds will have improved without a goal being scored, so you will do better than their advised prices. Swings and roundabouts is probably what a football manager would call it. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 60%, which was a good level and meant minimal losing streaks and a strong proportion of winners.

Advised Betting Bank: No betting bank was advised, but we used a £1,000 bank which should be more than enough given the £35 stakes and 60% strike rate. 

Subscription costs: Subscription costs are £39 per month, £106 per quarter or £191 per 6 months, which is pretty reasonable for a service that has produced such consistent results. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

We have written many times here at Honest Betting Reviews about how hard it is to make money betting on football and how few successful football tipsters and betting systems there are.

So it is great to see a product like Football Trading Alerts come along and produce excellent profits over the course of a three month trial. 

With £629 profit made to just £35 stakes, the alerts have demonstrated a clear edge over the market and grown our bank by a very nice 63% over the trial.

It is a strategy that clearly makes sense to use in-play data on how a match is going to place bets. We have all seen games when one side is dominating and constantly knocking on the door. Man Utd under Alex Ferguson used to masters at it – producing wave after wave of attack.

So it is a definite recommended rating from us. The only thing to be aware of us is that you may miss a few trades, but this shouldn’t stop you from a really good long term profit from the trades.

You can join Football Trading Alerts here.

Football Trading Alerts – Results Update

11th November 2016

Football Trading Alerts continues to do well, adding another £127 profit since our last update three weeks ago.

That means they are now £483 up for the trial overall.

You can view full results here.

We have been impressed with the consistency of the service and looking back at their results over the last few years, it does appear they have a solid edge over the market.

So with just a couple of weeks left in our trial, this one is looking like  winner.

We will return soon with our final verdict on Football Trading Alerts.

 

 

 

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Football Trading Alerts – Results Update

20th October 2016

More profit has been added by Football Trading Alerts since our last update a month ago, with another £54 profit made over the month.

That means we are now £356 up for the trial overall after two months.

You can view full results here.

As we said last time, you do need to be able to access Betfair when the trades are sent out, so it is possible you will not be able to make all the trades.

But it does appear from what we have seen so far that there is value in the trading alerts, so overall you should do well with this.

Back soon with more updates. 

 

 

 

 

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Football Trading Alerts – Results Update

24th September 2016

It’s been a very good start to our trial of Football Trading Alerts, with £302 profit made so far after one month of following the alerts.

You can view full results here.

That profit is following their advised staking, where the maximum you can lose on any one game is £32. 

So you could say we are just under 10 points up so far.

The only thing to note about this service is that unless you are constantly monitoring your e-mails and have access to Betfair all the time, you will probably miss some of the selections.

It might be you are out for dinner, at the pub or something and not able to check your e-mails to see if there are any selections.

But at the same time, it seems these selections do offer “value” so even if you miss a few, over the course of time you should still make a good profit as each pick is based on the current state of play in a game as indicated by the in-play stats. 

There will also be times when there will have been a goal before you can get your bet on, but this will be counteracted to a certain extent by the instances when the odds have drifted out from those advised in the e-mail so you are getting better value.

Overall we are impressed with this service, which seems to be a very good way of finding value in-play bets on football.  

 

 

 

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Football Trading Alerts – New Review

25th August 2016

With the new football season just underway we thought it would be a perfect time to check out a new football trading product.

This one is called Football Trading Alerts and comes from the same team behind In Play Trading and Pre Match Trading.

It comes very much from the In Play Trading system, in that subscribers to that get access to a chat room where trades are suggested by the administrator based on certain indicators.

However, not everyone has the time and inclination to sit in a chat room all evening waiting for trades to appear, so they have developed these alerts as a neat solution.

What happens is you get an alert to trade a match on Betfair (or your exchange of choice) when their relevant indicators are hit.

So you will get an e-mail like this:

 

TR / Turkish Super League / Galatasaray v Karabukspor Aug 22 at 19:45

Time played: 78′

Lay the draw: £20 @ 1.59

Lay Under 1.5: £27 @ 1.11

 

Then you simply follow the instructions and execute the trades. You don’t need to monitor after that, just let them run until the end of the game – or hopefully until they are successful.

The trades are based primarily on their “pressure index” which combines a variety of statistics showing when a team is dominating a game and creating lots of chances. 

In such instances, more often than not they will go on to score a goal. That is the theory on which the alerts are based.

The results published on the website look very impressive, with over £4,000 profit made since March 2015, with up to £48 generally risked per trade (but often less than that).

We like the simplicity of this approach and are quite hopeful the trial will turn out positively.

So without further ado, we will kick-off our trial and report back soon on how things are going.

In the meantime, you can check out Football Trading Alerts here.

Golf Forecast Full Review

 

Golf Forecast is a service that uses a complex algorithm to generate each-way selections for each week’s tournaments. 

Their approach is an interesting one – basically they say that “no one really knows who is going to win any golf tournament.” What they can do though, using their algorithm, is find selections who offer value for the punter.

The algorithm is based on the Shotlink data that compiles a huge array of stats on each player and the strengths and weaknesses of their game. It then apparently uses machine learning to update itself and improve in light of new data.

We have written before on this website that we strongly believe computing power will be the future of betting and will become more and more sophisticated in the coming years.

So the question is, how well did the system work during our trial?

The answer is – pretty darn well!

Yes, we made 172 points profit during the trial, which was an astonishing 102% return on investment!

That is the highest we have ever recorded over a whole trial.

Now it is worth pointing out, as is nearly always the case with golf tipsters, that the results fluctuate wildly based on just one or two big priced winners.

For example, Thorbjorn Olesen winning the Turkish Open at 150/1 brought in a massive 188 points of profit. Without add, the trial would have actually finished in a loss. 

Here are the results for the trial in graph format:

Things were bobbing along fairly steadily for most of the trial before a massive jump at the end.

As we say though, that is the way of things with golf betting – long losing streaks followed by big wins (hopefully!)

The only disappointing thing about the trial was that we had problems generating the selections early on in the trial (something wrong with the website apparently) and then later on there were problems accessing the website at all because the security certificate wasn’t up to date.

It is a shame there were those problems as the results were so good, no doubt people have been put off by those issues.

But presuming these technical issues can be ironed out, we are happy to give Golf Forecast a recommended rating and think there are definitely on to something with their algorithm-based approach.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: You have to log in to the website to find the selections and it can be a little cumbersome as you often need to click on the “forecasts” first before you click on the tips. Anyway, with only one to two tournaments per week, it is a pretty low workload overall. 

Availability of prices: They don’t actually quote prices as such, but we recorded the best price available from the main bookmakers on Oddschecker on a Wednesday. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 12%, which is pretty standard for golf and means you will need a large betting bank and quite a bit of patience when following the service. 

Advised Betting Bank: There was no betting bank advised, but we used a 300 point bank, which was never in danger during the trial. 

Subscription costs: Subscription costs are an incredibly low £1.99/month, £6.99/year or £22.99/lifetime.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Golf Forecast is an innovative betting service that uses an algorithm to generate selections.

It performed very well during our extended seven month trial, generating over 170 points profit at a return on investment of over 100%.

There were a couple of technical issues with the website which was a shame as otherwise this looks to be a high quality service.

Certainly when you bear in mind how cheap it is at just £22.99 for a lifetime subscription, then there is a lot to like about Golf Forecast. 

Presuming the technical issues have been ironed out, we are happy to give it a recommended rating and will watch its progress with interest.

Golf Forecast – Results Update

6th November 2016

The Golf Forecast website is still having problems with its security certificate, which is a shame because if you had been able to access their tips then you would have landed at 150/1 winner today in the shape of Thorbjorn Olesen at the Turkish Airlines Open.

That takes them to 173 points up for our trial overall.

You can view full results here.

This shows once again in golf betting how one winner can make such a huge difference.

We hope that they do sort out their security certificate soon so that the website is readily accessible as it seems like they have a decent betting service here. 

 

 

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Golf Forecast – Results Update

7th October 2016

We have had some problems accessing the Golf Forecast website over the last couple of months due to a security certificate issue.

Therefore we have not been able to record all of their selections.

However, the selections we have recorded unfortunately made a loss of 24 points, taking them to 8 points up overall for the trial.

You can view full results here.

Let’s hope the issues can be sorted out as there have been a few problems with the website since our trial started.

Back soon with more updates.

Golf Forecast – Results Update

17th August 2016

Things have moved on steadily for Golf Forecast, who have made 24 points profit since our last update to sit at 32 points in profit for the trial overall.

You can view full results here.

They had a good winner in the shape of Henrik Stenson at the BMW International Open at 10/1 and a good place finish on Ben Martin last week at the John Deere Classic at 125/1.

The only problem we have had so far is that the website does not always update to show you the week’s tips.

That may be because there aren’t any or may be because the system isn’t working properly, but it would be good to know either way and it might be an idea for them to supply the tips by e-mail in future to avoid such issues.

Golf Forecast – Results Update

26th June 2016

It has been a solid start to our trial of Golf Forecast, a golf tipping service providing selections each week on both the PGA and European Tours.

So far after two months they are 7.5 points in profit.

You can view full results here.

As is normally the case with golf betting, you often go a long time without a winner and need a lot of patience during these periods.

This has been the case here and although we haven’t had a winner yet, we have had a few good placed finishes, most notably Ken Duke at the Players Championship at 50/1 for the place (200/1 for the win).

There were unfortunately some teething problems with the website and some weeks we had trouble finding the tips for the tournaments, but thankfully these issues appear to have been sorted now.

Hopefully we will hit a winner soon, but in the meantime they have done well to be in profit so far.

Back soon with more updates.

Golf Forecast – New Review

18th April 2016

With the golf season getting into full flow, we recently started a new trial of a golf tipster in the form of Golf Betting Expert.

So we are pleased to have come across another golf tipster of promise to put under the spotlight of a review here at Honest Betting Reviews.

The tipster in question is called Golf Forecast and is a relatively new kid on the block. 

It might be more accurate to describe this as a golf tipping system and stats package rather than just a tipster.

Firstly they have a tips section which highlights a small number of tips that have potential for high profit bets yet with a strong chance of winning. 

Secondly they have a separate section that provides statistics for the main golf tournaments so people can use our data to make their own decisions.

There is also info on the World Golf Rankings and the week’s tournaments.

Things seem to have been good recently with one of their tips for the Masters being Danny Willett.

That was before our trial started of course so can’t be included in our results.

But still, shows some potential.

So without further ado we will kick off our trial of Golf Forecast and will be back soon with our first update on how things are going.

Golf Betting Expert Full Review

 

It’s been something of a roller coaster ride during our trial of Golf Betting Expert, with big losing runs followed by big wins.

That – if you’ll excuse the pun – is par for the course with golf betting. 

When you are betting at such long odds (with average odds of 93/1 during our trial), then you are going to get long losing runs.

So you need two things when following the Golf Betting Expert – and indeed most golf tipsters:

  1. A big betting bank
  2. Nerves of steel

Yes, it can be very trying on the patience when you have week after week with no returns. But stick with it and you should be rewarded. 

That was the case here, when we were over 100 points down before Cody Gribble went and landed the spoils at the Sandersons Farms Championship at 155/1, completely changing the picture.

Overall we have finished in profit, which is the main thing, with 41 points made over the six month trial.

From the graph below though you will see the roller coaster nature of the journey:

As you can see, we were down for the most of the trial before a big leap upwards at the end. 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Tips are sent out on Tuesdays, giving you plenty of time to get the bets on before the tournaments tee off on Thursday. There are slightly more bets than most golf services though, with around 12-14 bets per week. 

Availability of prices: There were no problems obtaining the advised prices and using Betfair can get you a significantly higher price on the win part of most bets (although slightly lower on the place part). 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 7%, which as we say will test the patience of just about anyone. But those who stuck with the service will have been rewarded. 

Advised Betting Bank: A 200 point betting bank is advised for the service, but that is clearly not enough as we were 164 points down at one point. So we used a 300 point bank, which should be sufficient but you may want to try a 400 point bank to be on the safe side. 

Subscription costs: Subscription costs are £1 for the 1st month then £39.95 per month or £99.95 per quarter. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Whilst the Golf Betting Expert made a decent profit of 41 points over the course of our six month trial, it was a roller coaster ride.

We were over 160 points down at one stage during the trial, which certainly tests your fortitude.

At the same though, we had some superb winners, with Cody Gribble at 155/1, Michael Thompson at 110/1, Aaron Baddeley at 55/1 and Patrick Reed at 50/1.

So the question is whether you are prepared to accept the long losing runs in return for the massive winners that come in intermittently.

If you are, then Golf Betting Expert is a good service and has proved it can generate a profit over a long period of time.

This won’t be for everyone though and certainly not those who like a high frequency of winners.

The choice is yours…

Golf Betting Expert – Results Update

29th October 2016

A slight downturn for the Golf Betting Expert since our last, with 17 points being lost over the last month.

That means they are now 83 points down for our trial overall, which is disappointing stuff.

You can view full results here.

As we have said before though, just one winner can turn that all around, so let’s hope they hit one soon!

Back soon with more updates.

Golf Betting Expert – Results Update

1st October 2016

There has been a small downturn for the Golf Betting Expert since our last update, with 21 points dropped over the last month. 

That means they are now 68 points down for the trial overall.

You can view full results here.

That is despite having a tasty 110/1 winner in the form of Michael Thompson at the Boise Open. 

But it just goes to show that when you are tipping five or six players per tournament, the losses can also add up quickly.

Still, the other side of the coin is that a couple of winners could completely turn things around for the Golf Betting Expert.

Golf Betting Expert – Results Update

2nd September 2016

Last time we pointed out the importance of staying patient with a golf tipster, as you can often go long periods without a winner.

Well if you had stuck with the Golf Betting Expert then your patience would have been rewarded further this month, as they landed a 50/1 winner in the shape of Patrick Reed at the Barclays last week.

That came on the back of some good placed finishes, including Matt Fitzpatrick at the Czech Masters at 16/1, David Lipsky at the Made in Denmark at 60/1 and Emilliano Grillo at 90/1, also at the Barclays.

That meant the Golf Betting Expert made 57 points profit on the month.

You can view full results here.

Sadly though, they are still 47 points down for the trial overall.

However, just one more month like that and we will be back in the black after being 160 points down at one point – let’s hope so.

Golf Betting Expert – Results Update

1st August 2016

In our last update for Golf Betting Expert, we emphasised the importance of patience when following a golf tipster.

Well if you shown patience and stuck with them this month, you would have been rewarded with a winner in the form of Aaron Baddeley at the Barbasol Championship at 55/1.

That helped bring in 30 points profit for the month since our last update.

Sadly though, the trial overall still stands at 104 points down.

You can view full results here.

So still quite a long way down unfortunately.

But at least things have improved and let’s hope it’s the beginning of a recovery for the Golf Betting Expert.

 

 

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Golf Betting Expert – Results Update

1st June 2016

Things have been tough for Golf Betting Expert since our last update.

They have lost a further 85 points to stand at -134 points for the trial overall.

You can view full results here.

This proves once again that you normally need two things to follow a golf tipster:

  1. A big betting bank
  2. A lot of patience!

Due to the odds of the tips being so high – in this case the average odds so far have been 95/1 – that means you generally have to wait 95 bets for each winner, which requires nerves of steel.

But most importantly it requires a betting bank that is sufficient to cover the losing runs. So in a case such as this, we would recommend a bank of between 500 and 1,000 points.

Anyway, let’s hope things pick up for the Golf Betting Expert over the next few weeks as there are some cracking tournaments coming up, so plenty of opportunities.

Back soon with more updates.

Golf Betting Expert – Results Update

1st June 2016

It has been a slow time for the Golf Betting Expert, with 49 points lost since our last update a few weeks ago.

That means they are now 41 points down for the trial overall.

You can view full results here.

It is quite normal in golf betting though to go a long time without a winner, as you are betting at long odds most of the time.

So no need to get alarmed yet, although it would certainly be nice to hit a winner.

The high points since our last update have been placed finishes for Tyrell Hatton at 66/1 and Nicolas Colsearts at 33/1, so decent returns from those two.

But hopefully we will have more positive news to report in our next update.

Golf Betting Expert – Results Update

6th May 2016

It has been a good start to our trial of the Golf Betting Expert – and it nearly could have been very good.

You can view full results here.

So far we are 8 points in profit after three weeks of the trial, but it was very close to being 66 points better than that on Monday at the rain-affected Zurich Classic New Orleans.

Those of you who – like me – managed to catch some coverage on Monday (I listened to it on PGA Tour Radio myself) would have noted the amazing final round of Beyong Hun-An, who unfortunately just missed out on winning in a playoff.

So it was a close run thing for the Golf Betting Expert, who nearly added another big-priced winner to his collection.

But there have been some nice place finishes to keep things chugging along and good to see a positive start to the trial of this very promising golf tipster.

Back soon with our next update.

Golf Betting Expert – New Review

13th April 2016

Well what a thrilling – and unexpected – ending it was to the US Masters on Sunday. 

I don’t think anyone was expecting Spieth to implode in the way he did. He looked to be cruising to his second Green Jacket when five ahead going into the back nine, but just shows you what a strange game golf is.

Well done to Danny Willett though on staying cool and securing his first major title. 

Traditionally the Masters has been seen as the start of the golfing season proper, even though these days there are plenty of good tournaments in the months before Augusta.

But it is certainly the start of a good time for golf, with the next few months seeing the Players Championship, US Open and Open Championship as well as lots of good tournaments on both sides of the Atlantic.

So it seems like a good time to start a trial of a new golf tipster.

The one we have for you today is called Golf Betting Expert from the reputable Betting Gods stable.

They have made a very impressive 280 points profit this year at a return on investment of 126%! 

That works out at a cool £700 per month betting to just £10 stakes.

That’s pretty phenomenal going. Their winners this year have included:

  • Fabian Gomez at 100/1 for the Sony Open
  • Danny Willett at 40/1 for the Dubai Desert Classic
  • SSP Chowrasia at 40/1 for the Indian Open 

Plus some very good place finishes as well.

So although it’s early days for the Golf Betting Expert, this seems like a very promising service and hopefully they will continue the excellent form shown so far this season.

As with all Betting Gods’ tipsters, you can get a month trial for just £1, which is a very good way of testing the service out.

We will revert back soon with our first update.

In the meantime, you can check out Golf Betting Expert here.

Value Favs Full Review

 

Value Favs is a horse racing tipster from the reputable Tipster Street stable.

As the name suggests, they focus on favourites, which is quite unusual in the tipping game as most tipsters tend to look at higher-priced horses.

However, there is a huge advantage in going for favourites as it means you will win a high proportion of your bets (i.e. high strike rate), meaning you can bet a larger amount of your bank on each selection and build a bank more quickly.

Plus the losing streaks will tend to be shorter, which makes it easier psychologically to follow.

The trouble is, it is usually tough to find value in favourites as they tend to be “known quantities,” where as some outsiders that are unfancied often come in under the radar and go off a much bigger price than they should be.

So with all that said, could Value Favs overcome the obstacles and make a profit from backing favourites?

Well the answer is a clear “yes!”

Over the course of our three month trial, they made 48 points profit at advised prices.

That represented very close to a doubling of the bank, very commendable stuff.

Here is the results graph for the trial:

As you can see, a pretty steady graph with a bit of a dip towards the end, but then a nice finish to the trial. 

The strike rate was pretty high as we would expect when backing favourites, at 43%, so nearly half the bets were winners.

The return on investment was good as well at 14%, which is a decent level given the strike rate achieved.

At Betfair SP, the results weren’t quite as good, with 24 points of profit being made, so half of the profits at advised prices.

But that’s still a respectable profit made over the trial.

Overall we are impressed with the service and are happy to give it a recommended rating.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Tips are sent out in morning with plenty of time to get the bets on. There are an average of two bets per day, so it’s a fairly straightforward service to follow.

Availability of prices: Prices are usually fairly obtainable, although as is often the case, do get pushed in by the time of the race so it is a good idea to get your bets on quickly.

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 43%, which as we say, is at the higher end of what we normally see with horse racing tipsters.

Advised Betting Bank: A 50 point betting bank is advised for the service. This was never in jeopardy during the trial, but might be slightly on the aggressive side, so you may want a 75 point bank to be a little safer.

Subscription costs: Subscription costs are £4.99 for the 1st month then £19.95 per month or £39.95 per quarter, which are very reasonable for a service of this quality.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED 

Value Favs achieved the remarkable feat of making a profit from backing favourites, something that is notoriously difficult in betting.

Making 48 points profit during our trial, they nearly doubled the bank over the course of three months.

The Betfair SP results achieved exactly half that, at 24 points profit.

With very reasonable subscription costs and minimal work involved in following the service, Value Favs is a top notch service and well worth signing up to.

Value Favs – Results Update

15th October 2016

A small decline for Value Favs, with 7 points lost at advised prices since our last update a month ago.

But still well up for the trial overall, at 46 points up.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP, things are a little worse, with 18 points lost since our last update, bringing them to 25 points up overall.

Let’s hope this is just a blip for Value Favs as we are very hopeful this will be turn out to be a top service. Every month so far has been a winning one, which is mightily impressive consistency.

Back soon with more updates.

Value Favs – Results Update

18th September 2016

Things have continued to progress nicely for horse racing tipster Value Favs since our last update, with a further 18 points of profit made at advised prices.

That takes them to 53 points in profit for the trial overall, very impressive stuff. 

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP things have also gone well, with a further 15 points of profit made since our last update, taking them to 43 points up overall.

Really good to see this one doing so well, with such a high strike rate (and therefore lots of winners), Value Favs is looking like a really top tipster. 

 

 

 

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Value Favs – Results Update

25th August 2016

It has been an excellent start to our trial of Value Favs, a horse racing tipster that focuses on backing favourites for profit.

After just under a month we are 35 points in profit at advised prices and 28 points in profit at Betfair SP.

You can view full results here.

This is very much living up to its pre-trial billing and delivering the kind of profits we were hoping for.

The strike rate has been superb so far as well, with 53% of the bets so far having been winners!

That included an eight-horse winning streak in the middle of August, fantastic stuff.

So far so good then for Value Favs. Let’s hope they keep up this level of form.

Value Favs – New Review

27th July 2016

What is that saying about London buses? You wait for ages and then three come along at once…

Well that is exactly how we are feeling about promising horse racing tipsters.

It had been quite a well since we had seen anything that really got us excited and made us think “this could be something special.”

And then in the last week, suddenly we find three all at once!

First off we had Early Odds, a highly impressive-looking tipster that takes advantage of early prices – but still makes a very good profit at Betfair SP.

Then there was Racing Investment, a high-strike rate service delivering incredible return on investment of over 70%.

And now we have Value Favs, a promising-looking service from the reputable Tipster Street stable.

As you may have guessed by the name, this is a tipster that concentrates on the top end of the market and finding favourites that represent value.

The good thing about such an approach is that you normally get lots of winners and that has certainly been the case here, with a strike rate of 48% to date.

So very nearly half of the bets so far have been winners!

The profit levels have been very good as well, with over 170 points profit to date since the service started in December 2015.

What is equally as impressive is that the return on investment so far has been 18%, which is very high for such a high strike-rate service.

And the consistency has been very good, with eight out of eight months to date being profitable.

So all in all this looks pretty awesome!

As ever with Tipster Street services, costs are very reasonable as well at just £4.99 for your first month and then £19.95/month or £39.95/quarter.

We are very much looking forward to this trial and if Value Favs can live up to its previous results then we may well have found a service worth adding to our armory.

Only time will tell of course, but initial signs are promising.

We will run the normal three month trial and report back on how things are going soon.

In the meantime you can check out Value Favs here.

Early Odds Full Review

 

Early Odds is a horse racing selection service from the Winning Information Network tipster stable. It has been going for just over a year now and in that time has produced some very impressive results.

It is run by a guy called Max who apparently built a database of horse racing statistics and information and then developed software to analyse all that data and come up with winning selections.

We ran a three month trial of Early Odds, so how did it perform under the spotlight of a live trial?

Well we are pleased to report that it has produced very good results and continued the excellent form shown prior to our trial.

We have finished the trial 112 points up at advised prices, which constituted 112% growth of the bank.

Here are the results in graph format:

As you can see, things got off to a slow start but then really took off over the second half of the trial.

Those results were achieved with a return on investment of 25%, which is excellent going and is one of the best returns from a trial we have seen in a while.

However, at Betfair SP the results were considerably lower with 21 points profit made. 

So following the selections at Betfair SP will produce at loss less profit over the long-term.

As the same of the service suggests, this is about taking early prices the evening before racing, so it is vital to get the bets on as soon as you can. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Tips are sent out in the evening before racing and there are an average of five bets per day, so some time commitment is needed to follow the service. 

Availability of prices: Prices get pushed in fairly significantly between being sent out and the race time, so it is crucial to get the bets on as soon as you can and certainly in the evening. As we say above, Betfair SP results were markedly lower, so you may struggle to make a profit at BSP.

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 21%, which is on the lower side so some patience and a good-sized bank will be needed.

Advised Betting Bank: No betting bank was advised, but we used a 100 point bank for the trial and it was never in jeopardy during the trial.

Subscription costs: Subscription costs are £49+VAT per month, £98+VAT per quarter or £149+VAT for 6 months.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Early Odds has produced some excellent results during our trial, making over 100 points profit in 3 months.

That more than doubled our starting bank, which is a fantastic effort and definitely merits a recommended rating from us.

It is worth bearing in mind that there’s a little bit of work involved in following the service, with an average of five bets per day.

And the results at Betfair SP were considerably lower with 21 points profit made, so to get the most out of this service you will need access to some bookie accounts.

As long as you have that though, this service is well worth joining and comes highly recommended. 

You can sign up to Early Odds here.

Early Odds – Results Update

17th October 2016

It’s been a great month for Early Odds, who have made 82 points profit at advised prices since our last update, putting them 101 points up for the trial overall.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP, there is quite a significant difference however. They have made 45 points profit since our last update, meaning they are 19 points up for the trial overall at Betfair SP. 

So as we have said before, this is probably a service that requires you have to bookie accounts as it looks like it will struggle at Betfair SP.

We are nearly at the end of the trial so will wrap things up shortly.

Early Odds – Results Update

16th September 2016

There has been an improvement for Early Odds since our last update, with 19 points profit made at advised prices.

That also brings them to 19 points up overall for the trial.

However, this service does not appear to be practical to follow at Betfair SP, as they are 26 points down at BSP for the trial.

That is not surprising really, given that the service focuses on finding value in early prices.

So this looks like only being worth following if you have a good number of bookie accounts still open.

At Betfair SP things have been a bit more of a struggle, with 23 points lost so far.

Given that the service focuses on finding early value in the prices, you would expect it would suffer somewhat at Betfair SP though.

Let’s hope things have moved into the black by the time of our next update. 

 

 

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Early Odds – New Review

23rd July 2016

When you think of approaches to winning at horse racing betting, there are a few key things to have.

An ability to study the form, crunch through numbers and see things from angles most punters don’t take into account.

Another factor we have seen more and more lately is the ability to take advantage of the early prices posted by the bookmakers.

We have just come across a service that combines all these things and has achieved very impressive results to date.

The service in question is called Early Odds.

It is run by a guy called Max who is a professional horse racing bettor and computer programmer.

Apparently Max built a database of horse racing statistics and information and then developed software to analyse all that data and come up with winning selections.

So far it has worked splendidly for him, amassing over 500 points profit since starting providing his selections in November 2015.

Amazingly, all that has been achieved using just 1 point level stakes, quite an extraordinary feat.

The return on investment so far is 32%, which is amongst the highest we have seen over an extended period.

Now before those of you who have lost your bookie accounts turn away, there is more good news.

Even using Betfair SP, Early Odds has managed over 275 points profit at a return on investment of 22%.

Now how many services do you know that can say that!

Visit Early Odds

And each month so far has been profitable, showing a high level of consistency to date.

Needless to say, we are quite excited about this service and can’t wait to get the trial underway.

So without further ado, we will commence a three month trial today and will be back soon with our first update on how things are going.

In the meantime you can check out Early Odds here.

Football Hedging System – Full Review

 

The Football Hedging System is a much talked-about suite of football trading systems run by Tony Langley.

There has been a great deal of interest from the gambling community about the Football Hedging System and it seems to have generated some heated debate – although most comment has been positive overall.

Membership has now been closed – we understand for good – so doing a review may be a bit of a moot point now but we thought we would do one anyway for the sake of completeness and just in case it does open again at some point in the future.

Results

We tested the systems for six months, so what did we think?

Well, overall our views are very positive.

The systems Tony has designed clearly work, and if you follow his trades you would have done very well indeed.

We made 387 points profit from following Tony’s trades, which represented nearly 200% growth of the bank and is excellent going in anyone’s book.

And part of that was during the quieter summer months, so there is the potential to do even better than that.

So it’s a clear passed rating for the Football Hedging System, but there are some issues with it that we want to deal with further below.

How Does it Work?

Firstly, you may be wondering how it works. Well, upon signing up, you get access to the FHS members area, which has an array of training guides and videos explaining each of the systems. You are also sent a hard copy manual of the systems in the post.

The systems all involve trading on Betfair and have video examples of trades to show you how to operate the systems.  

As a member you also receive Tony’s e-mails, which provide live updates of games he is trading with instructions and screenshots.

There were five systems to trade during our trial, although the majority of trades focus on two of the systems.

Please note that the systems are complicated! Yes, even seasoned traders may take quite a bit of time to learn to trade these systems and a good deal of practice is required to get them right. Tony advises paper trading until you have mastered them, which is sound advice.

The Recovery

The essence of these systems is that they are designed in such a way that you should never lose a trade, because there is a “recovery” process you can follow to get yourself out of trouble if a trade goes wrong.

Now the recovery is complicated and involves backing various different things at the same time. You need to be able to work out how much to place on each separate bet and to do it quickly. That can be very challenging!

I used Bet Angel to assist with this, which has a nifty hedging tool to work out the amount needed to cover a given liability and that certainly helped. 

In our experience, the recoveries do “work” as such, if you can get them on in time before another goal is scored.

However, here is the rub of things. In some instances you might not be able to do this and so you could lose a significant portion of your stake in this instance.

Let’s say one of the trades involves using the unders markets. If there is a rush of goals – and anyone who has traded football matches for any length of time will know that can definitely happen – you might not have time to get the trades on and just be left with a lost bet.

The same could happen if you were trading involving backing one team and the other team scored two or three quick goals.

So the systems are not completely foolproof. This should be recognised if you are signing up to the Football Hedging System. 

There is nothing we have ever encountered (other than matched betting of course) that can guarantee you a profit whatever happens. 

If there was then we would be millionaires and probably wouldn’t be running this website but would be off in the Bahamas being served cocktails by beautiful young ladies instead! 🙂

So please don’t think that this guarantees you winning 100% of the time.

There was also one instance when we were paper trading one match and there was an incredible first half, with the score being 4-2 at half-time. 

We asked Tony how we should have traded during that half and he admitted that really it wasn’t possible in that instance.

A first half finishing 4-2 is an extremely rare occurrence though so we shouldn’t get too hung up about that one game.

The other issue with the recovery though is that often you require high multiples of your stake to make it work, especially when there are two or more goals against you. So if for example you started off with total stakes of £100, the recovery might need up to £1,000 to make it work.

That is fine if it does work, but obviously does limit the kind of staking you can do somewhat. 

The issue of the recoveries was tackled with the introduction of the stop loss, which is dealt with below. 

Tony’s Trades

Having said all this about the recovery process however, it is worth noting that even if you had not used the recovery process but just traded out if things had gone against you and taken a 50% loss of the stake, here are the results from Tony’s trades since he started:

Total Trades 314
Total Recoveries 32
Total Successful Trades 282
Strike Rate 89.8%

Using just a £300 bank delivered a net profit return of £938.93 which is a 308.6% bank growth without compounding.

So even without the recovery, just by following Tony’s trades you would have done very well. This shows just how good Tony is at selecting matches with the criteria for his systems.

The Stop Loss

Perhaps in response to concerns over the problems with the recovery process, Tony recently added some new methods that involve placing “stop losses” so that even if things go against you, you have trades placed that insure you against losing too much.

These are certainly a welcome addition and do add some considerable protection. However, these still need you to trade quickly when things happen in a game, so there is the same risk of lots of goals affecting you. But the amount at risk is less which is good.

The Price 

The price for the Football Hedging System is exceptionally high compared to the vast majority of tipsters and betting systems we have reviewed on here, at £1297 for the cheapest package, plus £201 per month for Tony’s advice and e-mails.

So the question is, is that cost justified?

Well, it will depend on a certain extent on how large your staking is as that will define how long it takes to win back the cost of the subscription.

Over the long term you should make it back even with relatively modest staking, but it could take up to a year or longer.

In our view, the cost of the system is too high relative to everything else on the market and should be lower.

However, the cost hasn’t stopped large numbers of people signing up, so clearly people are prepared to pay the substantial fees for access to the system.

And of course there is always the option of a refund, as long as you follow the rules set out regarding refunds in their terms and conditions.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED 

The Football Hedging System is a suite of systems for trading the football markets on Betfair.

During our trial, we made 387 points profit from following the trades and nearly trebled our bank, with nearly 90% of the trades being successful. These are excellent results by anyone’s standards.

It has been claimed that using the systems means you “can’t lose” because they include a recovery process that allows you to supposedly at least break even from a trade, even if it goes against you.

We don’t think this is quite true, because if there are goals scored before you can execute all aspects of the trade, then you will lose money.

Plus there was a match during the trial where the recovery process didn’t work.

So the process isn’t completely foolproof in our view – you can still lose with it.

However, even without the recovery process, just by following Tony’s trades and accepting 50% loss of the stake when a trade goes against you, would still have made you over 300% bank growth, so there is clearly great value in the systems and Tony has great skill at picking the matches.

Overall then in our view, it is a question of whether you can stomach the high joining costs and be prepared to wait potentially up to a year to make those costs back, as well as putting in a great deal of work in learning the systems.

If you are prepared to do these things, then the Football Hedging System is highly recommended.

Football Hedging System – Closing Down

6th September 2016

Just a quick note to say that the Football Hedging System is closing its doors – apparently for good – on Sunday 11th September.

So if you are interested, now is the time to sign up.

We have been paper trading the new stop loss methods over most of July and August and will revert with our final review and comments shortly.

But in the meantime, you can see below that results have been pretty decent over the course of the trial and if you are serious about your trading and can devote the time to making it work, then the Football Hedging System is a strong package of trading methods.

Get on board now if you don’t want to miss out.

Football Hedging System – Results Update

1st July 2016

More positive progress for Football Hedging System since our last update. 

We have added a further 123 points of profit in the last month to stand at 387 points in profit for the trial as a whole.

You can view full results here. 

I mentioned previously that I was looking for a bot to trade the systems automatically. Whilst I haven’t quite managed that, I have started using Bet Angel to hedge the correct scores all at once, we saves a lot of time and messing around with a calculator.

Interestingly, Tony has responded to one of the criticisms of the system – that if things keep going against you in a match you need to keep adding massive amounts of bets to operate the recovery – by introducing a new “stop loss” method. 

This basically sets things up so there isn’t a need to do this and makes the potential bank needed for a trade much more manageable.

I am still getting used to this new stop loss system but if it works as well as Tony suggests then it would be a good improvement and would really take the Football Hedging System towards a top rating from us.

One other thing to mention – whilst the system is now closed to new members, we understand that Tony is considering allowing in a small number of new members at the start of the next football season – so watch this space as it were…

 

 

 

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Football Hedging System – Results Update

29th May 2016

Things have continued to progress well for the Football Hedging System, with a further 63 points of profit added since our last update.

That means for the trial so far, we are 264 points in profit and moving along very nicely.  

You can view full results here. 

What is interesting is that Tony sent round an e-mail a few days ago showing the results since the service started, if you had not even used the recovery process but just traded out if things had gone against you and taken a 50% loss of the stake.

The results were as follows:

Total Trades 314
Total Recoveries 32
Total Successful Trades 282
Strike Rate 89.8%

Using just a £300 bank delivered a net profit return of £938.93 which is a 308.6% bank growth without compounding.

So mighty impressive stuff, showing that even if you didn’t manage to quite master the recovery process, you could still do very well from the Football Hedging System.

However, of course you should try and master the process as that will increase the profits and mean you break even on the trades that go wrong rather than lose.

We will be back soon with more updates.

Football Hedging System – Results Update

4th May 2016

It has been a quiet time for the Football Hedging System as Tony has been on holiday for a couple of weeks so we haven’t had any trades since 13th April.

However, up to that point I had added a further 20 points of profit since our last update to stand at 201 points in profit for the trial so far. 

You can view full results here. 

My results for the recoveries haven’t been as good as Tony’s as I am still practicing and learning, so for example on the Roma v Bologna match I made a scratch trade where as Tony made an 18% profit.

He is now tending to attach screenshots to show his positions which is reassuring as you can see that it can be done.

My results also do not include a number of method five selections, which are ones that crop up spontaneously during matches, so if you are not at your computer when that happens you will miss them – as I have.

However, here are Tony’s results for those Method Five Selections:

  • 5th April -East Bengal v Mumbai – ?
  • 6th April – Stallion v Global – 9.59% profit
  • 9th April – Southampton v Newcastle – 5.33% profit
  • 10th April – Nice v Rennes – 6.5% profit

We didn’t receive details of the profits achieved from the East Bengal v Mumbai game, but the others would have added a further 21.42% profit.

Our comments remain much the same as last time – we can see the power of the system but think a bot would help enormously with this to automate things.

Back soon with our next update – Tony is due back from holiday next Monday (9th May) so we should be back trading again then. 

The other thing to mention is that the Football Hedging System is currently closed to new members, but we understand they may consider opening their doors again when Tony returns.

Watch this space as they say…

Football Hedging System – Results Update

4th April 2016

Things have continued in very positive fashion for Tony Langley’s Football Hedging System.

Since our last update we have added a further 40 points of profit to stand at 180 points up for the trial after one month. 

You can view full results here. 

We have now had a chance to undertake a recovery as a trade went against us in the Ascoli v Vicenza game. 

It is a bit of a panic at first when one happens and you try to get all the bets on quickly at the right stakes – this is certainly something you need to practice quite a lot to get right. 

I didn’t quite get it right and made a small loss on the trade, but viewing Tony’s screenshots I can see you could have got out at even for the trade.

I actually think what this system would really benefit from is a bot to automate the recovery – then I think you would have the ultimate money making machine.

So any budding bot makers out there…please do get in touch!

Anyway, I also missed a trade on the Switzerland v Rep of Ireland match that would have required a recovery. It was an “advanced method two” so not quite ready for that yet.

There have also been a couple of method fives I have missed as they crop up during the games so it depends if you are at your computer when Tony sends the opportunity as to whether you can do them.

Overall I have been impressed with this so far, the strike rate is as high as promised and I can see the logic in the recoveries.

It is just a question of practicing the recoveries until they become more or less automatic. Tony has helpfully provided some video footage recently of recoveries in action, so this is aiding with the learning process. 

Back soon with more updates on the Football Hedging System, hopefully when I have the recovery fully down!

Football Hedging System – Results Update

21st March 2016

It has been an excellent start to our trial of Football Hedging System, with all trades being successful since we started two weeks ago.

That means we are over 140 points in profit already.

You can view full results here. 

So in terms of the success rate of the system, things certainly seem to be living up to the sales claims so far.

The real test of this system though is when things go wrong and you have to launch what is called a “recovery” to get back what you have risked.

Now we haven’t had any opportunities to undertake recoveries so far, but having looked at the examples and practiced a couple, it seems like a logical method and as far as we can see, should work. 

It is complicated though – particularly if there are lots of quick goals in succession – so we are still getting to grips with it.

But so far so good for the Football Hedging System.

Back soon – hopefully when we have a live “recovery” completed!

Football Hedging System – New Review

9th March 2016

There is a real buzz around at the moment about a new football trading system that has hit the internet recently.

It is called the Football Hedging System by Tony Langley and I am not sure if I can remember quite as much excitement about a new system.

When you see the sales page you can perhaps understand the excitement.

It makes some extraordinary claims, headlining with the line that in the last few years, a full time working guy has made over £230,000 from using the system.

Even more amazing is the claim that since June 2015, there has not been a single losing trade! 

Apparently the system has devised a method for trading football matches on Betfair in such a way that you cannot lose.

Well if that is the case then I think is probably the betting “holy grail.”

You can supposedly make an estimated £9,000 to £12,000 per month trading the system, by winning 90% of your trades and at worst breaking even on the other 10%.

Now with claims like these, the system doesn’t come cheap.

The lowest cost package is the “Gold” option that comes at an upfront payment of £1,297 followed by a monthly subscription of £201 per month which includes support and Tony’s trading selections.

Next is the Platinum package, which costs £1,597 upfront followed by monthly subscriptions of £121.

Finally there is the Diamond Package of £2,597 which includes lifetime support and 28 weeks of selections. 

However, there is a risk free 145 day trial of the service available. To qualify for getting your money back you have to have traded at least 30% of Tony’s trades, recorded them in a log and not achieved at least a 30% growth of your bank per month.  

Now thankfully Tony has been kind enough to provide me with a copy of the Football Hedging System and the selections for three months so I can test the system, which is a good sign he is confident in the system.

When I first came across this system I have to say I was suspicious as I have seen similarly wild claims made before by other systems over the years that sadly haven’t turned out to be true.

However, there are quite a few people saying this does actually work which is interesting. As ever, only time will tell under a live trial.

I will revert soon with an update on how things are going with the system, hopefully having got my head around it as from what I have seen so far it is very complicated.

In the meantime, you can check out Football Hedging System here.

Beat the Market Analyzer – Final Review

We have reached the end of our six month trial of Beat the Market Analyzer Wealth Builders’ Club and here are the final results:

 

Profit/loss:    98%
Strike Rate:    69%
Bank Growth:    49%
Cost:   $14 for 14 days, then $47 per month 
ROI:   7.5%

VERDICT:   PASSED
Rating:

 

You can view full results here.

 

Beat the Market Analyzer – Full Review

 

Beat the Market Analyzer Wealth Builders’ Club is a stock market advisory service run by a chap called Grant Gigloitti.

Grant analyses hundreds of US stocks and then sends spreadsheets by e-mail with details of his analysis.

He uses colour-coding to indicate a possible buy (in yellow) or a recommended buy (in green).

The depth of his analysis is very impressive and you can see Grant really knows his stuff. This is definitely not one of those fly-by-night, pump and dump merchants you see so much of on the internet these days.

What you are getting here is very high quality research with all aspects of a stock examined.

 

Results

For the review, we bought all those stocks that were recommended (i.e. those in green), plus those that Grant bought himself.

The results were very impressive over the course of the six month trial. 

We recorded results for two different approaches to following the recommendations:

  • If you had bought all the stocks and held them, you would currently be 98% up, an excellent total and one that you would struggle to match anywhere. So if you had invested $2,000 in each of the shares recommended, you would have made $1,960 profit over the trial using this approach.
  • If you had taken the approach that Grant advises on his message board – to sell stocks when they are 5% in profit and to hold the others until they hit that point – you would have made 50% of realised gain and be holding three stocks, that are a combined 20% down currently. So in effect you would be 30% up – also very good for quite a conservative approach.

Plus these figures don’t include dividends – although they don’t include dealing costs either, but we would imagine the dividends would exceed the dealing costs slightly, depending on the amount of your investment of course.

Here are the results in graph format:

As you can see, very impressive growth throughout the trial.

 

Patience Required

This is the kind of service that requires patience – over the course of six months we only bought 13 stocks. 

So if you are looking for instant thrills and loads of trades, this probably isn’t for you.

However, frankly the stats on day trading are pretty horrendous, with over 98% of people losing money, so you are better off avoiding it altogether!

If you are looking to make money though, this seems like a great way of doing it. Grant follows the value approach of Warren Buffett and the results show without doubt that this is very effective.

In our experience, the best way of making money in the stock market is to buy and hold stocks for a good period of time. The shorter a period you trade over, the more likely you are to lose money. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

The Wealth Builders’ Club has had a great trial, racking up 97% profit over six months.

The approach to picking stocks is very selective, with only those that tick all the boxes being recommended.

If you have some money to invest in shares and want to experience excellent returns – the like of which you would struggle to match through any mainstream investment trust or a typical fund manager – then we can highly recommend this.

You will be getting a first class service, with tonnes of research done for you and only the very best value stocks recommended. 

You can get a 14-day trial for just $14 here.

Beat the Market Analyzer – Results Update

20th August 2016

Things have continued in strong fashion for Beat the Market Analyzer Wealth Builders’ Club, with the recommended stocks now 110% in profit if you had bought and held them.

You can view full results here.

If you sold those that reached 5% profit and held the rest, you would be 30% up and holding 4 stocks.

So excellent stuff from Grant and it looks like this is heading for a firm recommended rating.

Beat the Market Analyzer – Results Update

25th July 2016

The BTMA Wealth Builders’ Club has progressed along nicely – albeit quietly – since our last update just over a month ago.

The recommended buys are now 55% up if holding the stocks, very decent returns indeed. 

If you had taken the approach of selling stocks when they achieve a 5% gain and holding the others, you would still have +25% of realised gains and be holding three stocks currently.

You can view full results here.

Grant also sold Chevron (CVX) on 29th June for a 5% gain plus dividends, although the stock was bought before our trial started so won’t be included in our results.

There has been one recommended buy since the last update – Parker-Hannifin Corp – which has moved up nicely since being recommended.

Good to see this one progressing steadily and results are very much in line with those advertised.

Back soon with more updates.

Beat the Market Analyzer – Results Update

21st June 2016

There has been good progress for BTMA Wealth Builders’ Club since our last update a month ago, with an increase of 13% on the stocks bought.

That means we are now +11% for the trial taking the approach of holding all the stocks.

If you had taken the approach of selling stocks when they achieve a 5% gain and holding the others, you would have +20% of realised gains and be holding three stocks currently.

You can view full results here.

Grant also sold Exxon on 15th June for a 5% gain plus a 3.31% dividend per year, although that was bought on 4th March 2015 so well before our trial started.

Just to say again we really like Grant’s no-nonsense approach and straight, honest advice. There is no hyped sales-y rubbish here nor any inflated results to make himself look better than he is, like you see from a lot of supposed stock market “gurus.” 

So far what we have seen is very thorough analysis and only shares that tick all the boxes receive a “recommended” rating.

That means there aren’t many that are recommended, but those that are have performed well to date.

Back soon with more updates.

Beat the Market Analyzer – Results Update

18th May 2016

It has been a quiet time for BTMA Wealth Builders’ Club, with just 2 stocks bought (plus one that Grant bought himself, so you had the choice of copying him on that as well).

Overall, if you bought all the recommended stocks and held them, at the time of writing your net position would be a loss of 2%.

You can view full results here.

The alternative approach – and how Grant recommends you trade the stocks – is to sell after a gain of 5% has been made. 

If you had done that, you would have realised gains of 10% and be holding three other stocks.

The main loser so far has been the GAP, which is unfortunately 28% down since Grant recommended it.

However, stocks often bounce back relatively quickly so if that one picks up then things might be looking pretty strong right now.

Back soon with more updates.

Beat the Market Analyzer – Results Update

20th April 2016

As one of the first stockmarket products we have reviewed here at Honest Betting Reviews, we were intrigued by Beat the Market Analyzer (BTMA) Wealth Builders Club as it looked like a very promising product.

And we have to say that so far we have not been disappointed. 

Frankly there are a lot of rubbish stockmarket products out there that either make ridiculous claims that they will make you untold riches or that are just waffle that is incomprehensible.

This is not the case though with BTMA. What you get with this is genuine, in-depth research on stocks that is clear and very well informed. 

Grant who runs the service gives regular analysis on stocks in the following indices:

  • S&P 500
  • S&P 400 Mid Caps
  • NASDAQ 100
  • DOW 30
  • Russell 2000 Small Caps
  • Biggest decliners amongst the entire market
  • 52-week low stocks amonsgt the entire market

What you get with the service is regular weekly spreadsheets with hundreds of stocks analysed in amazing detail.

Each stock Grant looks at gets a thorough analysis which is based on the Warren Buffett ethos of “value investing.”

Grant uses a range of indicators to look at whether a stock is a bargain price, including:

  • Companies must have been around for 10 years
  • Good and consistent fundamental data
  • Do you understand what this company does?
  • Will this company’s product still be successfully sold within the next 10 years?
  • Does the company have a durable competitive advantage?
  • Reviewing financial statements and annual reports

Then having done this analysis, on the spreadsheet there are stocks that Grant considers “possible buys” which are highlighted in yellow and then good buys which are highlighted in green.

So how have things been going so far?

Well there have only been three recommended buys so far, but they have all done very well.

You can view full results here.

The three stocks that Grant has rated as good buys have made profits at the time of writing of:

  • 10%
  • 5.4%
  • 1%

So excellent progress and well in line with the kind of gains advertised.

Although it is early days and only a small number of stocks have been recommended to buy, we are impressed both with the thoroughness of Grant’s approach and the results.

Back soon with more updates on Beat the Market Analyzer.

Beat the Market Analyzer – New Review

20th March 2016

Do you want to invest like Warren Buffett?

That’s a rhetorical question really, of course everyone would. He is one of the richest men in the world and an all-time legendary investor.

Now you may not be able to emulate the billions that Buffet has made, but there is a new strategy we have come across that promises to follow his value investing strategy.

The system is called Beat the Market Analyzer (BTMA) and is run by a guy called Grant Gigliotti.

The results on the sales page show that the system has consistently – and convincingly – beaten the S&P 500 over recent years. 

From 2013 to present, the S&P 500 has made 38.61% profit, where as BTMA has made 392.06% profit.

In that period it has beaten the S&P 500 in all but 2 months (with four months having no stocks sold), which is a very healthy monthly success rate.

The explanation on the sales page about how Grant developed the strategy is very logical and as I say, is based closely on the value investing approach of Warren Buffett and the mentor of Buffett, Benjamin Graham.

You can get a 14 day trial for a very reasonable $14, which is a good opportunity to get a feel for the system.

By signing up you will receive the Wealth Builders Club System and your bonus “Company Analysis Reports,” as well as daily recommendations of the most profitable, safest stocks to buy along with thousands of analyzed stocks each week.

So we will be interested to trial this one and see if we can build our stockmarket portfolio in the style of Warren Buffett!

We will return soon with updates on how things are going.

In the meantime, you can get Beat the Market Analyzer here.

Betfair Renegade – Final Review

We have reached the end of our six month trial of Betfair Renegade and here are the final results:-

 

Profit/loss:    +233 points
Strike Rate:    20%
Bank Growth:    23%
Cost:   Comes as part of Profit Maximiser

Betfair Renegade Full Review

 

Betfair Renegade is a piece of football betting software that is sold (at certain times) as part of the Profit Maximiser package.

What the software does is find value bets that can be placed at the exchanges rather than the bookies.

 

How does it work?

Here is an example of what the software looks like when you log in:

 

The rating on the left in red is the amount of value the software calculates is in the selection – the higher the number the better.

You are advised to only go for value figures above 10 to give yourself a decent edge over the market.

Then you have the match, the league (or competition), the market, selection and current Betfair Odds in blue.

In yellow on the right are what Betfair Renegade calculates the odds should be for that market.

So all you need to do is open the software, check if any of the ratings on the left are above 10 (or whatever value you choose as your cut-off point), then look at the odds.

For our review, we used maximum odds of 11.0 (10/1). It is up to you what odds you want to use, but obviously the higher the odds you are prepared to accept, then the lower your strike rate will become.

Then you simply place the bets and you are done – there is no trading involved, you just let the bets run.

Results

We chose to follow the software for six months as the Summer period was quieter with few bets, so we wanted enough bets to get a proper sense of how well it worked.

Well we are pleased to say it worked very well, with 233 points profit made to 10 point stakes (or 23 points to 1 point stakes).

Here are the results in graph format:

As you can see, things started off well, tailed off towards the middle but then took off later on to finish well in profit. 

That profit came with a strike rate of 20% and a return on investment of 14%, which is very good for football betting.

It is important to be aware that everyone’s results from using Betfair Renegade will differ slightly depending on when you access the software each day as the selections are constantly changing as the odds change.

However, the fundamental value will always be there so in the long run the profit made should be pretty similar. 

Overall we think the results are very impressive and given how tough it has been to find a winning football tipster or betting system, it is great to find something as simple and effective as Betfair Renegade.

We are therefore happy to recommend Betfair Renegade in its own right and given how good Profit Maximiser already is, then with Betfair Renegade added in you are getting one very special betting package.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The software is very easy to use and it only takes a couple of minutes per day to operate. It even links straight through to the relevant Betfair page, so all the work is done for you!

Availability of prices: The vast majority of the time you will be able to get your bets matched, but occasionally there won’t be enough liquidity so you may have to put in an order and wait for your bet to be matched. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 20%, so some patience will be required when following the service. 

Advised Betting Bank: We used a 100 point bank for the trial to 1 point stakes (or 1000 to 10 point stakes), which was never threatened and should be comfortable for this system. 

Subscription costs: Profit Maximiser is available for a 14-day trial for just £1, followed by a payment of £96. Please note that Betfair Renegade is only available at certain times, so to check if it is available, please contact Mike Cruikshank at support@bonusbagging.co.uk

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Betfair Renegade – which comes on a limited basis as part of Profit Maximiser – ticks two of the major boxes for us in terms of what we are looking for from a football betting system.

Firstly, it makes a profit – having made over 230 points during our trial. 

Secondly, it is profitable at Betfair so doesn’t require use of the bookies.

It is remarkably simple to use as well and should take no more than a few minutes each day to place the bets.

So it’s a definite thumbs up from us for Betfair Renegade and a worthy addition to your betting portfolio.

Make sure you check with the owner Mike Cruickshank whether it is available though as he only sells limited copies – you can e-mail him at support@bonusbagging.co.uk

Betfair Renegade – Results Update

18th August 2016

Betfair Renegade has been going great guns since our last update, adding 227 points profit since our last update, bringing it to 208 points up for the trial overall.

You can view full results here.

This is football betting software that finds value selections on Betfair. It is incredibly easy to use, you just click into it and the selections for the day are there automatically.

You can only get access to it through purchasing the Profit Maximiser matched betting system.

It has been a bit slow over the summer with few bets but now we are in the main football season, things are picking up.

Good to see the positive results lately and let’s hope that continues.

Betfair Renegade – Results Update

20th July 2016

Things have continued to pick up for Betfair Renegade  – a piece of football software available as part of the Profit Maximiser betting suite – since our last update, adding a further 14 points of profit to bring it back to -19 points for the trial overall.

You can view full results here.

It is very quiet at the moment however, with at most one selection per day and many days without selections.

So we will get a better picture of things when the football season starts again and there are many more selections to go on.

Under a month to go now until the new football season – we are counting down the days!

Betfair Renegade – Results Update

20th June 2016

Things have picked up a bit for Betfair Renegade – a piece of football software available as part of the Profit Maximiser betting suite – since our last update.

It has added a nice 52 points of profit over the last month, taking the total for the trial to date to 33 points down.

You can view full results here.

It must be stressed that the software churns out lots of selections, so no two people would necessarily get the same results. Our results are from checking the software a couple of times per day, but if you checked at different times to us you would no doubt have different results.

Most of the selections are long shots, so a degree of patience is required with Betfair Renegade. Indeed, the average odds of our bets so far has been 6.3, so just over 5/1.

Anyway, good to see the comeback from Betfair Renegade and let’s hope it continues.

Betfair Renegade – Results Update

Unfortunately there has been a bit of a downturn for Betfair Renegade since our last update, with 140 points lost over the last month.

That means we are now 84 points down for the trial so far, or 8.4 points down to 1 point level stakes.

You can view full results here.

It is worth mentioning that we haven’t been able to record every selection that the software generates, as that changes all the time according to odds movement and there are some days we have missed, so you may have got different results to us if you had been using the software.

Anyway, let’s hope things pick up for us over the remainder of the trial.

Betfair Renegade – Results Update

21st April 2016

It has been a solid start to our trial of Betfair Renegade, which is a piece of software that finds value selections in football matches on Betfair. It is available as part of the Profit Maximiser betting package.

So far we are 55 points in profit to 10 point stakes after 29 bets.

You can view full results here.

The system is super-easy to use. You just log in, check the software page and see if there are any matches that fit your criteria.

Then you can click links on the page straight through to Betfair and place the bet – so you can be done in a couple of minutes.

So far we haven’t made as much use of the tool is we could have done, so we will try to make sure we find more selections and get a greater quantity of results to measure it by.

But results to date have been good, with a couple of cracking winners including Watford to beat Arsenal at 10.5 and Cowdenbeath to beat Peterborough at 11.

The other thing to mention is that we have amended the original criteria slightly to include matches with odds of up to 11 and value ratings of 10 and above. This is because with our original criteria there were just too few matches really.

Back soon with more updates.

Betfair Renegade – New Review

11th March 2016

Regular visitors to Honest Betting Reviews will know we are big fans of Mike Cruickshank’s products. 

We have given top ratings to a number of his systems, including Profit Maximiser, Bonus Bagging, Each-Way Sniper and Accumulator Generator.

So every time Mike releases something new, we – and probably a good number of you – get rather excited.

The latest product from Mike is something called Betfair Renegade. 

Now at first I was wondering what this might be about as it sounded more like a film with Wesley Snipes in it than a betting system.

However, this is in fact something quite new for Mike and it will be of interest to those you who live outside of the UK and Ireland who unfortunately can’t enjoy some of Mike’s other products.

This is in fact a straightforward betting method – no trading, no matched betting, just a tool for identifying value in football matches on Betfair.

It is apparently based on a mathematical algorithm that has crunched the numbers on thousands of passed matched and come up with a way to identify value.

Now I am sometimes sceptical of things like this that are based on so-called “advanced maths,” but given Mike’s past record of success on betting systems I am more interested than I would normally be.

The software basically spews out markets where it has identified value and gives you a rating based on how much of an edge it calculates you have over Betfair on that particular market.

You then just place the bets on Betfair and you are done! That is it – amazingly simple.

Mike advises backing only those selections that are priced under 10 and where there is an edge of at least 15%.

So we are going to have a go at following those criteria and seeing how we do over the course of a trial.

It will be interesting to see if the 15% edge translates into that kind of level of profit over the long term.

Our aim is to proof at least 100 bets and see how the system performs.

Now at the moment Betfair Renegade is only available as a bonus product when you subscribe to Profit Maximiser, but we have asked Mike if he plans to release it separately as a stand-alone product.

Will update you when I have further news on this front.
