Football Edge – Results Update

The tough times continue for football betting service Football Edge, with a loss of £135 made to advised stakes since our last update.

That means they are now £1183 down for our trial overall to advised stakes. 

You can view full results here. 

It’s been a bit surprising to see the results so far as this service came into our trial with very promising long-term results. 

We’ll just have to see if they can manage to recover over the rest of our trial and make back those losses.

Football Edge – Results Update

6th March 2024

It’s been a rough start to our trial of football betting service Football Edge, with a loss of £1048 made so far to advised stakes. 

You can view full results here. 

This is a service that advises bets from across the European leagues and are mainly in the match odds and Asian handicap markets. 

They stated that they have been testing a second algorithm for the last two years which they had planned to integrate into the service at the beginning of March but in light of recent results, went live with in the last week of February.

This means that there will be a lot more selections and some of them will be backing the away team to win.

They also stated that this (i.e. February) was their worst month in four and a half years, which is what we sometimes refer to as “reviewer’s curse.” 

Hopefully it was just bad luck and they can get things going in the right direction again soon.

Football Edge – New Review

10th January 2024

We are starting a new trial today of a football service called Football Edge

It is based on a betting algorithm that identifies value in the football markets and then posts bets to members accordingly. 

They went live with the system in 2019 and the results reported on their website since then look very impressive: 

  • 2019: +£1,969
  • 2020: +£3,656
  • 2021: +£3,224
  • 2022: +£3,935
  • 2023: +£2,044

         Total: +£14,827

Each of those yearly totals is from a starting bank of £2,500 at the beginning of the year, which is reset at the end of the year. 

They say they have achieved over 120% return on investment (ROI) each year, although technically what they mean is 120% return on capital (ROC) rather than return on investment ROI.

The staking is based on the Kelly Criterion and is calculated for you on the website based on your starting bank. 

Looking at the results, some of the stakes are very hefty, with stakes at some point getting up over £350 per bet.

Most of the bets are on heavy favourites so in theory the strike rate should be high and losing streaks short, but those are still pretty big stakes. A few losses in a row could impact the bank quite considerably.

Bets are from across the European leagues and are mainly in the match odds and Asian handicap markets. Results are recorded from Betfair, which is good so hopefully it should be possible to match their official results (or close to them anyway). 

This is an intriguing service with very encouraging results so we are keen to see how it performs under live trial conditions. 

We will get things going today and will report back soon on how they are getting on.

In the meantime you can check out Football Edge for yourself here.
