This is a first for us here at Honest Betting Reviews as we launch our first ever review of a rugby betting service.
It’s strange in a way that there aren’t many rugby tipsters out there when you consider it’s a popular sport played in a number of countries around the world.
Even comparable sports in terms of popularity like golf and cricket attract a lot more betting attention and have quite a lot of people tipping on them.
For some reason though rugby has been rather neglected as a betting medium over the years.
That’s no problem for us though as it means there is the potential for lots of value to be found if others aren’t devoting much time to it.
And that certainly seems to be the case with the service we’re looking at today – Makfi Elite Rugby Tipping.
It is run by a guy called George Makfi – hence the name.
This is actually a service that’s been around for a number of years – firstly at gttips.co.uk, then at LoveWinners.co.uk before moving to Makfi Elite.
It had been part of a broader portfolio of sports tips when on those websites, but this new service is rugby-only.
The long-term record of the rugby tips over the last eight years has been very good, with a profit of £24,892 made to £50 stakes, which is the equivalent of 498 points profit to 1 point stakes.
That has been achieved with a return on investment of just under 10%, which is very good for a sports service where you are betting at relatively short odds generally.
Bets come in both rugby league and rugby union and across a variety of leagues as well as internationals.
There are also a variety of bet types used such as handicaps, total points, winning margins and more.
We are looking forward to testing this one out because as we say, it is the first rugby service we have trialled – and it also looks very good!
So we will aim to run a standard three month trial and see how this one gets on. You can check back here for regular updates.
