Things have taken a small step backwards for Sports Spread Betting since our last update, with a loss of 131 points having been made in that time.
However, we are still a healthy 464 points in profit for the trial overall, which is very good going.
We took a heavy hit over the weekend with total goal minutes on the Premier League matches and completed passes in the Arsenal game going against us, which cost us the best part of 200 points.
However, we recovered some of those losses on the Champions League last night, so let’s hope we are back on track. As we say, overall we are well in profit so that is most commendable.
Sports Spread Betting – Results Update
8th October 2017
We are very impressed with Sports Spread Betting so far, as it continues to rack up the profits.
We have made a further 425 points profit since our last update, meaning we are now 595 points in profit in total for our trial.
These are very good results and we are really liking this service so far.
We mentioned last time that we would attempt to shop around for better prices, so we opened an account with Spreadex. It has helped a little bit with prices, but it doesn’t have some markets (like distances 1-3) and its prices still tend to get moved in as well.
In any event, even accepting small reductions in prices from those advised, we are still well in profit so can’t complain really and overall this has been excellent.
Back soon with more updates.
Sports Spread Betting – Results Update
23rd August 2017
It’s been an excellent start to our trial of Sports Spread Betting, the first spread betting service we have reviewed here at Honest Betting Reviews.
Since we started following the tips on 23rd August, we are 170 points in profit.
The service specialises in horse racing, football and cricket and there are normally just 1-2 bets per day.
The prices on some of the selections – particularly the horse racing – get moved in quite significantly by the time the tips have been received and we got to placing our bets, sometimes by 5 or 6 points.
So for example whilst we have made 218 points profit in September so far, the tips at advised prices have made 260 points profit – so over 40 points difference.
However, this has mainly been on the horse racing, where as on football and cricket prices tend to hold up better – probably because they are bigger, more liquid markets.
We have just been using Sporting Index so far during the trial, so will try some of the other spread betting companies like Spreadex and Sports Spread to see if we can mitigate the price contractions somewhat.
In any event, even losing a few points on some of the tips we are still well in profit so can’t have any complaints and this is looking very promising so far.
Sports Spread Betting – New Review
23rd August 2017
Here at Honest Betting Reviews we are inundated with requests to review various betting systems and tipsters.
Lots of these are similar to systems that already exist or are even direct copycats. Many others are new tipping services, of which there are now literally hundreds.
So what we really like to see is something new and different – someone who comes along and takes a slightly more nuanced approach to the gambling game.
Earlier this week we were approached by a chap called Max and we were pleased to see that he has a slightly different approach to making money betting from the hundreds of others we regularly see these days.
His focus is to spread bet on a number of different sports and his website is called – quite appropriately we would say – Sports Spread Betting.
It is quite surprising when we think about it that there aren’t more spread betting tipsters and systems out there.
In fact, we think this may well be the first one we have ever come across!
For sure, fixed odds betting is much, much bigger amongst the punters than spread betting, which is more niche and tends to be more associated with financial trading.
However, that isn’t to say you can’t make money out of it.
A story you may have heard us recount here at Honest Betting Reviews is that of an accountant we once knew who managed to devise a system for betting on corner supremacy bets with the spread companies.
He realised there was a systematic error to the way the spread betting companies were pricing up their corner markets. We never found out the exact formula, but apparently they would put too much emphasis on the superiority of one team over another rather than the way they played.
This chap took a very large amount off the spread betting companies (we understand it was over six figures in total) before they shut down his accounts.
The point of the story is that you can make money from this form of betting and indeed, given its more niche status, there may be more unexploited angles than in fixed odds betting, which has become such a mass market now, it seems all the easy opportunities to make money are gone.
Anyway, back to the service in question. Sports Spread Betting focuses on three sports primarily – football, horse racing and cricket.
The service concentrates on a small number of the spread betting markets and uses a wealth of statistics that Max has built up over the years to pinpoint value trades.
As a member you receive an e-mail each day with Max’s selections, together with the price and some of the thinking behind the bet.
It costs £25 per month to sign up, which seems pretty reasonable compared to some of the services we see promoted around the internet these days.
And in addition it comes with a profit guarantee – so if he doesn’t make at least 25 points profit from his selections in a given month, he says you will receive a full refund. A very good offer indeed!
Please be aware, if you are thinking of joining up, of the disclaimer on the website that due to spread betting being regulated by the FCA, Max is not allowed to be seen to be giving advice (as he is not regulated in this capacity). The selections that he sends out via email will be simply the selections that he is putting his own money on each and every time. It is then up to you if you decide to copy him on those selections.
Right, now we have got the small print out the way, it is time to get on with the review.
Max aims to make around 100 points profit per month, so a pretty achievable target we would say.
Obviously as ever, it remains to be seen whether this will be achieved during the trial, but we will find out either way.
So without further ado we will get the trial underway and will report back soon on how things are going.
