Some time ago we did a review of Patrick Ross’s Tennis Trading League and unfortunately it received a failed rating after notching up a nine point loss over our trial.
However, that was two years ago and we are always prepared to revisit things and take another look.
So we are going to embark on another trial of Patrick’s tennis tipping.
This time we are taking a look at a different aspect of the service – his Spartan Trading Tips.
These have an impressive-looking long term record, having apparently notched up over 1,000 points profit since the service started in late 2013.
That is from risking an average of 4 points on each trade, so not an unreasonable staking system and very good results over an extended period.
Each year so far has made a good profit and there are generally around two bets per day.
The Spartan Trading Tips service is about looking for the odds to move between two given points – so for example if Murray was playing Nadal, you would lay him at 1.8 and back him at 2.5, thus giving a profit whatever happens if the odds move in that way.
If they don’t move in that way, then you obviously lose your stake.
The thing we like about this idea is that you are trading on the general volatility in odds you see in tennis – which is huge. You just need some fluctuations in the match to see your trades win.
Patrick is also using his knowledge and experience to identify players with particular traits and match-ups that suit a swing in odds.
The approach appears to have worked very well to date if the results are to be believed. So much so in fact that Patrick was offering to give subscribers their money back if he didn’t make 200 points profit on the French Open.
We aren’t sure if he’s on course to achieve that, but either way it is a bold objective.
Anyway, it’s nice to have another tennis service to review as there aren’t many around. We will run our standard three month trial and will report back soon on how things are going.
