Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs – Full Review

 

Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs is a trading service run by a guy called Chris, a professional trader. It is operated out of the long-running Banker Bets platform which we have previously reviewed here at HBR.  

Chris provides a number of different betting and trading strategies he’s refined over the past couple of years. They’re a mix of back and lay betting, some pre-match and some in-play.

The service is supplied via the Telegram messenger app, with members receiving selections for the day via a spreadsheet link and then live alerts for in-play trades. 

The number of strategies in operation changed quite a lot over the course of the review as some were dropped and others added. By the end of our review, there were 21 active strategies as part of the service. 

In terms of how we proofed the service, we did find it a very difficult service to review to be honest. 

We started off proofing three strategies, then expanded it to six once we had got our heads around how the service worked and how to operate the strategies, only to then see five of those six strategies removed from the service, leaving us with just one. 

We then added two new strategies to give us something more to proof and to allow us to complete the review, but obviously that wasn’t ideal. 

In the end, the one strategy that was in operation for the whole of our trial, the Home Wins, made £285 profit made from stakes ranging from £5 to £20 per bet. 

The other two strategies we added later were the overs and draws, and they made: 

  • Overs: +£56 profit
  • Draws: -£213 loss

So a bit of a mixed bag there with those two. 

Of the strategies that were retired, some of them had actually been doing quite well, for example the Home Values Draw were +£494 whilst the 15 minute lay the draw was +£484. 

However, Chris felt they weren’t optimal to his service (or there were better ones available) so were replaced by other systems. 

There are also some in-play strategies you can trade with those service, although you would need to have the time to be able to enter and exit trades when alerts are given out, which won’t be the case for everyone. 

Overall we felt this was a promising service and Chris is clearly very knowledgeable and hard-working.

However, we found it a difficult service to follow and proof and felt there were just a few too many changes made in terms of the strategies being dropped and introduced. 

We think it could have benefited from a bit more stability and sticking with some of the strategies that had good long-term results. As the old saying goes, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! 

All betting strategies go through short-term ups and downs and sometimes it can be worth sticking with them to see how they turn out in the long run.

Anyway, that is just our view – it is obviously up to Chris how he runs the service and what he feels is best. 

Overall though, of the strategies still running, the three we proofed made a combined £128 profit from £10 average stakes – or around 13 points profit to one point stakes in other words.

At a return on investment of just 2% and over a period of 12 months we didn’t feel that was quite enough to warrant a passed rating so are only able to award this service a NEUTRAL rating at this time. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Selections are provided via the Telegram app. As mentioned above, it is quite a difficult service to follow – firstly to get your head around how all the various strategies work and then to keep up as strategies are added and dropped. How many selections there are each day depends on how many strategies you follow, but if following all you are looking at around 5-10 selections per day most days, with a potential of up to 20 on a busy day.

Availability of prices: The prices quoted seemed reasonably available on Betfair overall – some would shorten whilst others drifted, pretty much evening out overall. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was decent at 62% across the three active systems.

Advised Betting Bank: 1-3% staking of the bank per bet is recommended for following the service, which seems reasonable to us given the high strike rate. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs at the time of writing are  £33 per month, £79 per quarter or £277 per year.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs is a mixture of different betting and trading strategies, including back and lay betting, some pre-match and some in-play. 

We found it quite a difficult service to review to be honest, with strategies being added and removed throughout our trial and it taking quite a bit of effort to understand how they all worked. 

At the end of our trial, the three active strategies we proofed finished a combined £128 up at £10 average stakes, meaning this service receives a NEUTRAL rating from us in the end.

Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs – Results Update

14th January 2024

It has been a mixed bag for the systems of the Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs lately, with some quite different results being posted for the three systems we are proofing:

  • Home Win: +£285 profit
  • Overs: +£56 profit
  • Draws: -£213 loss

That means the three systems are a combined £128 up for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

Just a reminder that five of the six systems we were proofing have now been retired, with the only one remaining from when we started being the Home Win system.

We have recently added in the Overs and Draws systems, which as you can see have had quite varying results so far. 

Hopefully these three stay in operation for the time being to allow us to complete the review.

Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs – Results Update

5th December 2023

It has become somewhat difficult to review Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs lately, with five of the six systems we had been proofing now no longer in operation. 

The one system that is still in operation, the Home Win system, has lost £48 since our last update. 

That means it is now £262 up for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

This has left us in a tricky position as to what to do with this review going forward.

Normally we like to stick to whatever systems or strategies are in place at the outset of our review and follow them through to the end. It is not ideal to be adding and removing strategies as you go along. 

It also calls into question somewhat the viability of the service if strategies are being retired, in essence as they are either not profitable or not practical to follow.

However, we want to be fair as possible and to see if we can make a sustainable profit from this service. 

So we will continue with the one strategy that is still going, the Home Wins – which to be fair is well in profit – and add two more strategies. 

These will be the Overs and the Draws. 

We will stick with these three until the end of our trial and hopefully they will remain in operation so we can finish our review.

Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs – Results Update

21st October 2023

A small drop for Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs lately, with a loss of £143 or 14.3 points made since our last update on the six systems we have been proofing.

The results for those six strategies are as follows (at £10 per point):-

  • 15 Minute LTD: +£489 profit
  • Home Values Draw – RETIRED: +£494 profit 
  • Home Win: +£310 profit
  • Home Win LTD: -£9 loss
  • HT LTD V2: -£39 loss
  • Double Chance – RETIRED: -£56 loss

That means the total now stands at £1189, or 119 points profit made for our trial so far.

You can view full results here.

As you can see above, two of the systems have been retired – the Home Values Draw and Double Chance systems. 

We are slightly surprised by the Home Values Draw being retired as it was nearly £500 in profit, but obviously they feel it hasn’t quite been performing well enough recently to justify continuing with. 

Anyway, that leaves us with four systems to follow for the time being which makes things a little easier and hopefully those remaining four systems can kick on again.

Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs – Results Update

11th August 2023

A small drop for Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs lately, with a loss of £33 or 3.3 points made since our last update on the six systems we have been proofing.

The results for those six strategies are as follows (at £10 per point):-

  • 15 Minute LTD: +£472 profit
  • Home Values Draw: +£603 profit 
  • Home Win: +£350 profit
  • Home Win LTD: +£44 profit
  • HT LTD V2: -£1 loss
  • Double Chance: -£51 loss

That means the total now stands at £1417, or 142 points profit made for our trial so far.

You can view full results here.

As mentioned previously there is a lot to take in with this service so we would advise starting off with just 2-3 systems, as it can be quite overwhelming trying to get your head around everything right from the start and you risk potentially making mistakes, over-staking or not quite understanding it all straight away. 

With the new season kicking off the action should really start picking up over the next few weeks and hopefully they can repeat the success of last season and add to the already substantial profits.

Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs – Results Update

11th July 2023

A small gain for Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs lately, with a profit of £16, or 1.6 points, made since our last update on the main three systems we have been proofing.

The results for those three strategies are as follows:-

  • 15 Minute LTD: +£511 profit
  • Home Values Draw: +£531 profit 
  • Home Win: +£356 profit

Those results are to £10 per point stakes so the total of £1398 profit is equivalent to 139.8 points profit for our trial so far.

Since our last update we have added in three further systems:

  • Home Win LTD: +£60 profit
  • HT LTD V2: -£36 loss
  • Double Chance: +25 profit

All in all then with that £49 across those three systems, the total now stands at £1450, or 145 points profit made for our trial so far.

You can view full results here.

We would advise starting off with just 2-3 systems, as it can be quite overwhelming trying to get your head around everything right from the start and you risk potentially making mistakes, over-staking or not quite understanding it all straight away. 

Whilst each strategy in itself is not overly complicated, altogether there are 16 strategies currently which is a lot to take in. 

So we would say take it slow and steady and build things up with this one. Overall we have been very impressed with the service but it does take some effort to fully grasp everything as we say.

Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs – Results Update

29th May 2023

Firstly an apology for the delay in updating our review of Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs. It is quite a difficult service to review as there are 17 separate strategies and a huge amount to take in.

The main thing we had to decide on was which of these strategies we would proof as it would not be feasible to try and track all of them – or even half of them to be honest. 

After some careful thought we have settled on three strategies – one of which is an in-play strategy and the other two are pre-match strategies. 

The three strategies are:-

  • 15 Minute Lay the Draw (LTD) – this involves laying the draw in a match after 15 minutes if the score is still 0-0. 
  • Home Values Draw – backing the draw before kick-off
  • Home Win – backing the home win before kick-off.

These three strategies are all pretty simple to operate and should be manageable for anyone, even if you are new to betting/trading. 

In any event, the results for those three strategies have been very good:

  • 15 Minute LTD: +£497 profit
  • Home Values Draw: +£560 profit 
  • Home Win: +£325 profit

Those results are to £10 per point stakes so the total of £1382 profit is equivalent to 138 points profit for our trial so far.

You can view full results here.

Although we haven’t been able to proof all the strategies as we say, the official results show a profit of 389 points in total for 2023 for the strategies combined. 

So it’s been impressive stuff so far. 

All the selections are sent out by Telegram and the odds quoted are with the Betfair exchange. 

For us following three strategies is just about manageable but there may be members who follow more (or all) so it’s a question of picking what is right for you.

Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs – New Review

18th January 2023

We are starting a new trial today of a football trading service called Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs

The trader behind the service is a guy called Chris, a professional trader who has been proofing to the Banker Bets site for 8 months and has reportedly made an impressive £7,373 profit in that time. 

Chris operates 6 profitable trading strategies he’s refined over the past couple of years. They’re a mix of back and lay betting, some pre-match and some in-play.

The trading strategies have reportedly produced the following results:-

  • Lay the Draw: +£1568 profit
  • Half-time Lay the Draw: +£1317 profit
  • 60 minute Lay the Draw: +£409 profit
  • Double Chance: +£749 profit
  • Second half goals: +£2518 profit
  • Overs: +£814 profit

In terms of what all that means in points terms is a little difficult to say as different staking is used for each system (and even within each system), ranging from as little as £10 up to over £100 stake liability.

However, clearly the results have been excellent (presuming they are accurate of course) in terms of achieving substantial profit across each of the strategies. The strike rate across the strategies has been high at 77% overall. 

The trades are provided via the Telegram app where you’ll receive notification of each selection.

We are quite excited by this one as we have always felt there is great scope to make profits from trading football, but with one or two notable exceptions (e.g. Goal Profits), we are yet to see any services actually produce trading profits under live trial conditions. 

As ever we will reserve judgement until we have conducted the trial but we are at least hopeful this could be a decent trading service. Results will be updated here as we go along as usual. 

In the meantime you can check out Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs for yourself here.

 

 

 

Betting Mastermind (Football) – Final Review

We have reached the end of our nine month trial of Betting Mastermind (Football) and here are the final results:-

 

Profit/Loss:   +14 points profit
Strike Rate:   35% 
Bank Growth:   +7%
ROI:   1%
Average number of bets:   6 bets per day
Cost:  £29.99 per month
VERDICT:   NEUTRAL
Rating:

 

You can view full results here.

 

Betting Mastermind – Full Review

 

Betting Mastermind (Football) is a suite of football betting systems across a range of markets. 

It should not be confused with Mike Cruickshank’s matched betting suite of the same name, which was released a couple of years ago and is completely separate. To differentiate the two we refer to this service as Betting Mastermind (Football). 

Anyway, Betting Mastermind (Football) is a group of football betting strategies, which at the start of our trial consisted of:

  • Back the draw
  • Lay the draw
  • Back the home win
  • Back the away win
  • Back over 0.5 first half goals

During the course of our review, the lay the draw strategy was dropped. We were also not able to proof the first half goals system which often has low liquidity so prices needed to be verified at kick-off time (with some matches kicking off late at night and early morning when we were not available). 

Anyway, all four strategies are included within the monthly subscription price if you do wish to follow them all.

We followed the service for 9 months which gave us nearly a full season of tips and provided over 1700 bets, a very good sample size. 

Bets can be placed on Betfair which is good for those whose bookie accounts have been restricted and results are recorded according to the Betfair prices. All bets are simple win bets with no trading required. 

At the end of our review, the results of the systems were as follows:-

  • Back the draw: -2 points
  • Lay the draw: -33 points (discontinued in January)
  • Back the home win: +36 points
  • Back the away win: +13 points

TOTAL: +14 points

So a solid effort there but given it was over the course of nine months and over 1700 bets, the returns were a little on the low side. 

The return on investment was also low at just 1% and the bank growth only 7%. 

Whilst we always a profit is a profit and shouldn’t be sniffed at, ultimately if you take the overall returns and cost of subscription, it just doesn’t quite warrant a passed rating from us.

So we award Betting Mastermind a NEUTRAL rating at the end of our trial. If you are going to follow the service, it looks like the back the home win and back the away win are the two strategies to concentrate on. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections are sent out by e-mail, at different times of day depending on when the matches are. Either way there is plenty of time to get the bets on. With around 6 bets per day on average there is a bit of work involved in following the service, although as mentioned earlier all bets can be placed on Betfair which makes things easier. 

Availability of prices: We didn’t notice a huge impact on prices so you should be able to get close to the recorded results without too much problem.   

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was okay at 35% but would probably need to be a little higher to generate a consistent profit. 

Advised Betting Bank: We could not see a recommended bank for following the service but used a 200 point bank for the purposes of our review which was never in jeopardy.  

Subscription costs: The current subscription costs at the time of writing are £29.99 per month.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

Betting Mastermind (Football) is a suite of football betting systems covering a range of different markets. 

We conducted a nine-month trial of the service and at the end of our review, they made a solid profit of 14 points

Whilst that was a respectable result, based on a low ROI of 1% and bank growth of just 7%, it wasn’t quite enough to merit a passed rating so it’s a NEUTRAL rating from us for this service.

Betting Mastermind – Results Update

16th April 2023

It’s been a good time lately for football service Betting Mastermind, with a profit of 40 points made to advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 73 points up for our trial overall at advised prices. 

That is made up of the following results across their three systems:

  • Back the Draw: +7 points
  • Back the Home Win: +41 points
  • Back the Away Win: +25 points
  • Lay the Draw: discontinued 

You can view full results here.

As mentioned previously there are a huge number of selections for this service, so you may wish to follow just one or two of the systems rather than all of them (also a note that we are no longer including the FHG bets in our results as they turned out quite difficult to proof on prices).  

The Lay the Draw selections had been really struggling and were over 40 points down for our trial, so were discontinued on 18th March so that some time can be taken to review it and put it to use in a better way.

 

 

 

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

Betting Mastermind – Results Update

10th February 2023

It’s been a better month for football service Betting Mastermind, with a profit of 32 points made to advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 33 points up for our trial overall at advised prices. 

That is made up of the following results across their five systems:

  • Back the Draw: +21 points
  • Lay the Draw: -33 points
  • Back the Home Win: +21 points
  • Back the Away Win: +24 points

You can view full results here.

As mentioned previously there are a huge number of selections for this service, so you may wish to follow just one or two of the systems rather than all of them (also a note that we are no longer including the FHG bets in our results as they turned out quite difficult to proof on prices).  

Alternatively there is the option of using BF Bot Manager to automate the strategies, with instructions on how to do so included with the service. 

 

 

 

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

Betting Mastermind – Results Update

6th January 2023

There’s been a slight downturn for football service Betting Mastermind lately, with a loss of 19 points made to advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now just 1 point up for our trial overall at advised prices. 

That is made up of the following results across their five systems:

  • Back the Draw: -3 points
  • Lay the Draw: -22 points
  • Back the Home Win: +23 points
  • Back the Away Win: +3 points
  • Over 0.5 First Half Goals +0.24 points

You can view full results here.

As mentioned previously there are a huge number of selections for this service, so you may wish to follow just one or two of the systems rather than all five. 

Alternatively there is the option of using BF Bot Manager to automate the strategies, with instructions on how to do so included with the service. 

Either way though has been a steady trial so far at pretty much breakeven so hopefully they can kick on now that we have a full set of football fixtures again.  

 

 

 

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

Betting Mastermind – Results Update

2nd November 2022

It’s been a positive start to our trial of football service Betting Mastermind, with a profit of 20 points made so far to advised prices. 

That is made up of the following results across their five systems:

  • Back the Draw: -10 points
  • Lay the Draw: -30 points
  • Back the Home Win: +33 points
  • Back the Away Win: +27 points
  • Over 0.5 First Half Goals +0.3 points

You can view full results here.

Just to note that we have only been able to proof prices for the Back the Draw and Lay the Draw systems in this trial as verifying prices across all the different systems would be a major challenge with a huge number of selections, particular for the first half goals system which often has low liquidity so prices would need to be verified at kick-off time (with some matches kicking off late at night and early morning).

The prices we have been able to proof for the two systems match up pretty closely to the advised prices however, with some a little higher and some a little lower, but overall ending up with very similar results.

A promising start to this trial then, let’s hope it continues.

Betting Mastermind – New Review

26th September 2022

Today we are starting a new trial of a football betting service called Betting Mastermind. 

This should not be confused with the Mike Cruickshank matched betting suite of the same name, which was released a couple of years ago and is completely separate. To differentiate the two we are referring to this service as Betting Mastermind (Football). 

Anyway, Betting Mastermind (Football) is a group of football betting strategies, consisting of:

  • Back the draw
  • Lay the draw
  • Back the home win
  • Back the away win
  • Back over 0.5 first half goals

All five strategies are included within the monthly subscription price.

Stuart says he has “been working a developing loads of different strategies to not only create consistently logical and profitable betting systems centred around football, but also how I can diversify that betting so that at no point I have all my liquidity and bank at risk on a single market.”

The results to date look very impressive – almost too good to be true to be honest – with 1880 points profit supposedly made to date since 2019.

We very much hope those results are true as it would be great to find another profitable footy tipster with there being so few of them around. 

In any event, there is only one way to find out and that is through a live trial so we look forward to kicking this one off (if you’ll excuse the pun) and see if they can reproduce the excellent profits reported on the website. 

As usual results will be updated here as we go along.

In the meantime you can check out Betting Mastermind (Football) for yourself here.

Winning Footy Tips – Final Review

We have reached the end of our trial of Winning Footy Tips and here are the final results:-

 

Profit/Loss:   -3 point loss
Strike Rate:   48%
Bank Growth:   -3%
ROI:   -0.5%
Average number of bets:   1 bet per day
Cost:   £5 for first 14 days then £27/month
VERDICT:   NEUTRAL
Rating:

 

You can view full results here.

 

Winning Footy Tips – Full Review

 

Winning Footy Tips is a long-running football tipping service that has been going since way back in 2012. 

Most of the bets come in the big leagues such as the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga and so on. In terms of bet type there are quite a lot straight win bets on the match odds market and also some HT/FT, total goals and draw no bet tips. 

All the bets are to one point stakes, which makes it easy to follow. 

We ran an extensive two-year review of the service, which may well be our longest ever trial here at HBR! 

That incorporated over 560 bets so was a substantial sample size. We wanted to give the service long enough to prove itself and see if it could generate a decent profit as the long-term results were very good coming into our trial – in fact some of the best we’d seen from a football service oer such a long period. 

Alas though, despite giving the service just over two years to prove itself, at the end of our trial it ended 3 points down

That’s not too bad in the grand scheme of things and was very close to breaking even, but unfortunately was a long way off the results produced coming into our trial. 

It represented just a 3% loss of the recommended 100 point betting bank so no damage done there really and the ROI was almost even at -0.5%

So in the end a NEUTRAL rating seems fair here. 

It’s a service we’ll keep an eye on as if they can return to the kind of results achieved prior to our trial, it would be worth revisiting and potentially upgrading our rating. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections are sent out by e-mail, usually with plenty of time to get the bets on. There is normally a midweek e-mail and a weekend one.  

Availability of prices: We didn’t notice any discernible impact on prices after tips were sent out, which you would expect when backing in liquid markets in the top leagues.  

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was solid at 48% but a little below the long-term strike rate of 50%. 

Advised Betting Bank: A 100 point betting bank is recommended for following the service which seems very reasonable to us and was never in jeopardy during our trial. 

Subscription costs: The current subscription costs at the time of writing are £5 for the first 14 days then £27 per month. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

Winning Footy Tips is a long-running football service that we ran an extensive two-year review of. We had hoped during that time we would see them produce the kind of profits seen prior to our trial but sadly that didn’t quite work out and they finished with a small loss of 3 points in the end. 

With no damage done to the betting bank however, we feel a NEUTRAL rating is warranted in this instance.

Football betting service Winning Footy Tips has continued its positive momentum lately, with a profit of 8 points made since our last update.

That means they are now just 9 points down for our trial overall.

You can view full results here.

These are simple one point win bets, mostly on the match odds market but occasionally on other markets such as Asian handicap.

They have had some nice winning runs lately with six winners in a row in January and at the moment are on a run of four winners in a row, which is good to see.

Not much change for Winning Footy Tips lately, with a profit of 1 point made since our last update.

With the World Cup coming up next week we expect a few bets during the tournament, as they have tipped in international matches before, including Euro 2020.

Fingers crossed for a good event and a decent amount of profit made if they do tip.

That means they are now 20 points down for our trial overall.

You can view full results here.

Although this trial has struggled to get going, to put it in context they recommend a 100 point bank. So they have only lost 20% of that during our trial, which is no disaster by any means. 

Obviously we do need them to turn things around soon though and get moving in the right direction.

They tip across quite a wide range of leagues from all over Europe – everything from League Two in England to Serie A and Dutch football, with cup games and Europa League in there too.

If you can find value across these leagues then it’s fine to scout far and wide. Certainly it seems to be working recently and based on the long-term results. Hopefully they can keep it going and get back into the green for our trial.

We did have high hopes for this service after seeing it post strong results under proofing elsewhere but sadly after nearly a year of our trial it hasn’t quite delivered yet.

The loss hasn’t been too bad compared to the overall bank but we would still like to see them in profit at this stage.

Winning Footy Tips – Results Update

28th December 2021

A small improvement over the last month for football tipster Winning Footy Tips, with a profit of 1 point made since our last update.

However they are still 19 points down for our trial overall.

You can view full results here.

Just a note to say that there are a few small discrepancies between our results and theirs, with a few matches missing from their results. However, those don’t actually make much a difference to the overall results as some of the games won, so it looks more like an administrative error than anything else.

Winning Footy Tips – Results Update

The tough times continue unfortunately for football tipster Winning Footy Tips, with a loss of 6 points made since our last update a month ago. 

That means they are now 20 points down for our trial overall.

You can view full results here.

Although this trial has struggled to get going, to put it in context they recommend a 100 point bank. So they have only lost 20% of that during our trial, which is no disaster by any means. 

Obviously we do need them to turn things around soon though and get moving in the right direction.

It’s been a quiet time lately since the European football seasons ended, but they have been tipping in the Euros and have been doing pretty well, with six winning bets out of seven so far. 

The action should hot up now as we near the end of the group phase and into the knockout stages of Euro 2020, so we expect some more bets to be advised over the next couple of weeks and hopefully they can keep the winning streak going.

One of the aspects of this service we like is that all bets are simple one-point stakes, so no fancy or contrived staking to try and inflate results – it’s a case of what you see is what you get. 

Just need them to start hitting a few more winners now to move the bank forward.

As mentioned when commencing the review, this is a service that tips in the top European leagues so liquidity and odds availability is very good. There are doubles as well as singles and most of the bets are in the match odds market.

So it’s pretty straightforward to follow, just need the results to get going now and you have the makings of a very decent service.

Winning Footy Tips – New Review

7th March 2021

Today we are starting a new review of a football tipster with an impressive-looking long term record. 

The service in question is called Winning Footy Tips and it comes from the Bets for Today platform, which is a new one to us here at Honest Betting Reviews.

Winning Footy Tips has been running since way back in 2012 so has been around a long time and in some ways we are surprised it has gone under our radar for so long, but we’re glad we’ve come across it now anyway. 

The published results are excellent as we say, with a total profit of £9775 made at £50/point since 2012. That has been achieved at a return investment of 12.9% which is pretty good in football terms.

The long-term strike rate is good too at 51%, which is very solid over such an extended period. 

They recommend a 100-point bank if following the service which seems very sensible to us given the one point staking and strike rate. 

Most of the bets come in the big leagues as well such as the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga and so on. In terms of bet type there are quite a lot straight win bets and also some HT/FT, total goals and draw no bet. 

So everything looks good here and we are hoping we’ve uncovered something of a hidden gem here. At the same time let’s hope we haven’t jinxed it!

Anyway, we started receiving tips on 27th February so will record results from then and will update things here as we go along.

In the meantime you can check out Winning Footy Tips for yourself here.

Scottish Football Income Booster – Full Review

 

The Scottish Football Income Booster (or SFIB for short) is a tipster that focuses solely on Scottish Football. The tips are provided by a chap who is known solely as “the Scotsman,” to keep his identity secret. 

The Scotsman is a university educated maths whizz based just outside Glasgow (yes, he’s Scottish!) and his CV screams “Scottish football expert“.

With previous stints at leading bookmaking firms and an Asian-based private investment syndicate as a proprietary trader, in addition to acting as a quant-based hedge fund’s go-to Scottish betting consultant after he was head-hunted because of his vast local knowledge about players, teams and motivational issues likely to affect results.

So it is quite a resume for a tipster and as we often say, the results coming into our trial looked strong with a profit of over 180 points made since starting tipping in 2015/16.

We followed the tips for 20 months, which gave us some of the period when covid lockdowns were still in place and football results were a little skew-whiff, but then a full season of post-lockdowns when things went back to normal. Overall it gave us a good sample size of just over 300 bets in total.

Most of the bets are in the match odds 1X2 market, with a few in other specialist markets such over/under 2.5 goals, draw no bet (DNB) and double chance (DC).

They provide tips across the Scottish leagues, with everything from the Premiership down to League Two. 

Whilst we gave the service a good long period to prove itself, unfortunately across the trial period it never really got going and in the end finished four points down.

That was only a -1% ROI and represented just 4% of our bank, so for all intents and purposes it pretty much broke even during our review.

On that basis we think a fair verdict here is a NEUTRAL rating, as the betting bank was still largely in tact by the end of our trial, so no damage done really.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections are sent by e-mail, normally on Thursday and Friday ahead of the weekend’s games, giving plenty of time to get the bets on.

Availability of prices: Prices are generally available and we didn’t see any problems obtaining the recommended odds.

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 44%, which isn’t too bad in itself but would need to be a little higher to achieve a profit.

Advised Betting Bank: We couldn’t see a betting bank recommended for the service but used a 100 point bank for the purposes of our trial.

Subscription costs: The current subscription costs at the time of writing are £37+VAT per month.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

We followed the Scottish Football Income Booster for a 20 month period in the hope they could produce the kind of profits reported prior to our trial, but unfortunately at the end of our trial they finished 4 points down.

That still left the vast majority of the bank in tact and the ROI was only -1%, so no damage done but overall it’s a NEUTRAL verdict for this service.

As mentioned last time, they have been very unlucky with late goals this season. If games only lasted 88 minutes they would have cleaned up!

That reminds of us another football service we reviewed previously that recommended trading out at 85 minutes. By that time the odds will be around the 1.2-1.3 range so liabilities are quite small in doing so.

Something to think about anyway.

They have been bedeviled with late goals this season. Saturday’s late one in the Kilmarnock game was a 3.8pt swing, which obviously stings a bit. Results could have a somewhat brighter look to them if not for those late goals. 

In any event, it hasn’t been a disaster or anything but the trial has just failed to really get going yet.

Just a reminder that this is a football tipster focusing solely on Scottish football. They bet across the Scottish leagues and mainly bet on the match odds and over/under markets.

The long-term results are very good with over 174 points profit made, so let’s hope they can kick on after making a good start to the season.

Scottish Football Income Booster – New Review

23rd October 2020

When it comes to betting on football, finding an edge or angle to beat the bookies can be tough. The main markets on the big five leagues – the Premier League, Serie A, Bundesliga, La Liga and Ligue 1 – have huge liquidity and are generally difficult to make a profit on. Eking out a narrow 1 or 2% edge is about the best many professional gamblers hope for on the top leagues. 

One alternative approach is to focus on other leagues that don’t get such huge coverage and where things like team news, injuries, players’ form etc isn’t covered so extensively and known to everyone. 

Well the service we are looking at today is one that does exactly that, focusing solely on Scottish football and using their expert knowledge and ear to the ground to make a decent profit from the beautiful game north of Hadrian’s Wall.

The service in question is called the Scottish Football Income Booster (or SFIB for short) and the tips are provided by a chap who is known solely as “the Scotsman,” to keep his identity secret. 

The Scotsman is a university educated maths whizz based just outside Glasgow (yes, he’s Scottish!) and his CV screams “Scottish football expert“.

With previous stints at leading bookmaking firms and an Asian-based private investment syndicate as a proprietary trader, in addition to acting as a quant-based hedge fund’s go-to Scottish betting consultant after he was head-hunted because of his vast local knowledge about players, teams and motivational issues likely to affect results…

Suffice to say this guy is a bona fide expert in his field and a source of highly sought-after information. 

His retutns back that up, with results proofed elsewhere showing a profit of over 180 points since starting tipping in 2015/16.

That would be over £18,000 profit to £100/point stakes or £3,600 to more modest £20/point stakes.

Those results have been achieved with a very decent strike rate of 47% and a return on investment of over 11%, which is more than respectable in the world of football betting. 

The service comes out of the Matthew Walton stable of tipsters, who also has two of the best tipsters we have reviewed in their respective sports, namely Racing Intelligence and the Golf Insider in horse racing and golf respectively.

So from what we can gather Matthew has another hidden gem and top quality tipster this time in the sport of football. 

As we always say though, the ultimate test will be a live trial here at Honest Betting Reviews so we are looking forward to getting our review underway. 

We have just received the tips for this weekend and are raring to go, so will kick off the review today and will hopefully be toasting (with a glass of whiskey and some shortbread perhaps) a good few winners and a positive result in a few months’ time. 

In the meantime you can check out Scottish Football Income Booster (SFIB) for yourself here.

Football Acca Tipster – Full Review

 

Football Acca Tipster is a service from the Betting Gods tipster platform and – as the name suggests – they provide accumulator bets (accas) on the footy. 

They tip in a variety of leagues across Europe and most of the accas are doubles and trebles. A number of different markets are used including match odds, over/under, BTTS, double and chance and more. 

We followed the service for a full seven months to get a good picture of its performance. It got off to a very rough start, going over 80 points down at one stage but fought back well to finish 6 points up in the end. 

Staking varies between 2 and 5 points, with 3.4 being the average, so that may have inflated the loss made early on in the trial. 

However, overall the service has ended up pretty much back where it started, so we feel only a NEUTRAL rating is fair in this instance. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The tips are normally sent out in the morning of the matches giving plenty of time to get the bets on. With an average of 1-2 bets per day following the service isn’t too onerous by any means. 

Availability of prices: Prices are freely available and there should be no problem matching the advised prices. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 53% which is pretty decent and means lots of winning accas. 

Advised Betting Bank: A 200 point bank is recommended for following the service which seems a reasonable amount to us and even with the early losses was never in jeopardy. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are £1.99 for the first 15 days then £27/month.

There is a full money-back guarantee for the first 30 days. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

Accumulators are a popular form of betting and Football Acca Tipster focuses on backing doubles and trebles in major football matches. 

It got off to rocky start to our trial, going over 80 points down at one stage but bounced back well to finish just in profit. 

Overall given it finished just 6 points up in the end it receives a NEUTRAL rating from us for the time being.

This has been an impressive fightback as they were over 80 points down at one stage in our trial and many would have given up at that stage but it just shows patience and a long-term outlook can really pay off sometimes.

If they continue the form of the last couple of months then they should manage to get back into profit for our trial, which would be good to see. 

The nice thing about the service is that even though they are doing accas, the strike rate is still high at over 48%. Just need to push that up a little higher and then they’ll be back in the black.

We have decided to extend the review from 3 months to 6 months to give them a chance to show their form once the main leagues kick off again as obviously over the last few months it has just been the Summer leagues which tend to be more tricky.

So let’s see if they can get into profit once the action get underway in a couple of weeks.

Sadly though they are still 44 points down for our trial overall.

The results probably look a bit worse than they actually are however, as staking is quite high with often 3 or 4 points being used per bet. 

So in reality they would be around 10-15 points down if betting at 1 point level stakes.

Anyway, whatever the staking let’s hope we have some more positive news to report on the results by the time of our next update.

Football Acca Tipster – New Review

13th May 2019

Regular followers of the site will know we are normally skeptical about accumulator betting. Basically it is generally considered the “mugs” style of betting as you are normally just multiplying the bookies’ edge over you, meaning you are taking terrible value on your bets.

Hence why you see so many bookies offering acca-based bonuses to the unsuspecting punter – bookies love accas because they make so much money from them.

However, in theory this idea could be turned on its head, if – and it’s a big if – you were able to find consistent value on your bets.

Then by putting them in accumulators you would actually be able to multiply your edge over the bookies.

To do this consistently would be quite a feat but the tipster we are looking at today appears to have found a way to make accumulator betting profitable – and that is Football Acca Tipster from the reputable Betting Gods platform.

They have made over £700 to £10 stakes since last October and that has been achieved with a strike rate of 25%.

Even though they bet on accumulators, the average odds are just over 2.0 and a good number of the bets are doubles.

The results have been quite up and down so far, but they have had a good May so that is encouraging at least.

We have actually been receiving the tips since 17th April so will record results from then. 

Please check back here for updates on how the review how is going.

In the meantime you can check out Football Acca Tipster here.

Oddball Tips – Full Review

 

Oddball Tips is a football betting service from the Tipsters Empire platform of tipsters. The vast majority of their tips are accumulators, focusing mainly on the match odds and both teams to score markets.

For the most part they concentrate on English football from the Premier League down to the National League but also tip in other top leagues around Europe.

Coming into our trial the results looked pretty strong with over 100 points profit made at a return on investment of over 20%. 

However, unfortunately after three months of following the tips we are left with a small loss of 12 points. 

As that is only an 8% loss of the advised betting bank of 150 points, it wasn’t a disaster by any means and we think a NEUTRAL rating is fair in this instance. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Most of the tips are sent out the evening before matches or early in the morning, so plenty of time to get the bets on.  

Availability of prices: There was no problem at all with obtaining the advised prices as the tips are normally in the main markets and liquidity strong. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 22% which is OK in itself but would need to be a little higher to achieve a profit at the odds tipped at. 

Advised Betting Bank: For once we would say the recommended bank was sufficient, with a 150 point bank advised which should be enough to cover drawdowns etc. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are £2.99 for the first 28 days then £30 per month, £75 per quarter or £179 per season

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

With a small loss of 12 points made during our three month review, it was a slightly disappointing trial but certainly no disaster for Oddball Tips.   

With just an 8% loss of the recommended betting bank we think a NEUTRAL rating is fair in this instance and it’s a service to keep an eye on for now.

Despite the loss for the month they have staged something of a recovery lately, with three of the last six bets winning at odds of 1.5, 2.99 and 6.82, so hopefully that’s a sign of things to come and them getting back towards a profit for our trial overall.

Oddball Tips – Results Update

10th October 2019

It’s been a slow start to our trial of football tipster Oddball Tips, with a loss of 14 points made so far after one month. 

You can view full results here. 

Most of the tips are accumulators and come in a variety of leagues including the English leagues as well as some European ones and the Champions League. 

Although it’s not got off to a great start, not a lot of damage has been done and just one or two of the accas landing could turn things around.

Oddball Tips – New Review

12th September 2019

Today we are starting a new trial of a football tipster from the Tipsters Empire platform called Oddball Tips. 

According to the website, Oddball Tips keeps it simple. With so many football markets available, Oddball sticks to the win, draw or goal markets, in order to ensure that everyone can the bet on.

They follow football on a daily basis, from the Premier League down to National League, as well as other top leagues around Europe. Along with many punters, they’ve had accounts banned in the past by betting on random leagues and sports so stick to the main leagues now. 

The results so far look very impressive with over £1,150 profit made at a return on investment of 20%, which is high for football. 

The strike rate however is lower than most football services at 15%. That is because most of their tips are accumulators with odds as high as 90/1 in some cases. 

A 150 point betting bank is recommended for following the service which seems reasonable given the strike rate and staking used, which tends to be between 0.5 and 2 points. 

It’s an interesting looking service and we are keen to get the review going and see how they get on. We will update results here during our trial at regular intervals so you can see what kind of progress they are making. 

In the meantime you can check out Oddball Tips for yourself here.

Goal Hunter – Full Review

 

Goal Hunter is a football trading strategy for the over/under markets on Betfair. It comes from the Football Advisor team, who have other services which have previously passed trials here at Honest Betting Reviews. 

The Goal Hunter strategy comes in the form of a PDF guide which is 31 pages in length. The PDF sets out the statistics behind the trading strategy, how to select matches to trade and then goes onto explain how to trade the strategy during football matches. 

There are a few mistakes in the guide, not least the calculation that odds of 1.5 imply a 50% win probability (in fact odds of 1.5 imply a 66.7% win probability). 

However, these small errors should not distract from the overall guide, which is clear and logical and sets out a step-by-step process to follow when trading the over/under markets and the reasoning behind the strategy. 

If you don’t want to go through the process of selecting which matches to trade based on the criteria set out in the guide, then you can receive the Daily Trade Sheets at an extra cost (£37 at the time of writing). 

For the purpose of our trial, we utilised the Daily Trade Sheets and only traded those games that had a positive value (indicated in green on the spreadsheets). 

So how did the strategy do and what did we think of it?

Well, the first thing to stress is that everyone will have different results depending on which games they trade and how they trade them. Within the overall strategy there are slightly different options you can choose to follow depending on how a game is unfolding.

For our part we made a profit of £27 in the end after 100 matches traded, using a total risk of £8 per match (we started off with a £10 risk but reduced that to £8 after realising the final £2 probably wasn’t worth risking if a trade was going totally against you). 

That isn’t bad and a profit is a profit as they say, so is not to be sniffed at. The profit graph for the trial was pretty good too:

The guide is also clear and sets out how to react in different scenarios, which is good to see. Quite often trading guides only tell you what to do when the trade goes for you, not what to do when it goes against you, which is something that tends to annoy us. 

We would advise taking up the option of the Daily Trade Sheets if you are going to join the service as they save a lot of time and provide some useful info on value. 

However, whilst these aspects of Goal Hunter were positive, we feel like £27 was quite a small amount to have made from trading 100 matches and the ROI of around 3% didn’t seem quite high enough for the time and effort put in.

We agonised quite a bit over whether to award this a passed rating or not, but ultimately we feel like there are more sophisticated trading strategies out there for the football markets (notably the Football Trading Webinars we reviewed previously) and the trading strategy outlined here would be nothing new to experienced traders. 

So we have decided in the end to award Goal Hunter a NEUTRAL rating. Ultimately it did OK and made a profit so we can’t complain from that point of view. If you are new to trading then this could be a good introduction and get you used to trading a simple strategy.

For more experienced traders however we think you will be probably be looking for something more advanced. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use:  You can either trade games live, which is probably preferable in order to maximise profits, or “set and forget.” If you trade live then it is obviously quite a time commitment to follow the matches, but the strategy is very straightforward to understand. If you take up the Trade Sheets, they are normally sent out at around 7am UK time.

Availability of prices: Not applicable in this case as you are trading on Betfair. 

Strike rate: The win rate for the trial was 65%, which is pretty good. 

Advised Betting Bank: We used a £250 bank based on £8 risked per matched which seemed a very safe level for us. 

Subscription costs: The costs are a one-off fee of £77 for the Goal Hunter PDF and then £37 for the Daily Trade Sheets.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

Goal Hunter is a football trading strategy for the over/under markets on Betfair. It is a PDF guide with an optional extra of trade sheets indicating which matches are best to trade for the day.

After trading 100 matches we made a profit of £27 to an £8 risk level per match, which isn’t bad.

However, for the time put in we didn’t feel it was quite enough profit to award this a passed rating and the strategy itself is probably something experienced traders are already familiar with. 

So it’s a NEUTRAL rating from us on this occasion for this trading strategy.

Goal Hunter – Results Update

20th June 2019

It’s been a slow start to our trial of Goal Hunter, a trading strategy for the over/under markets in football matches. 

We are using the Daily Trade Sheets which are an optional extra with the service and give you the best games to trade in for the day, with the expected value for each game. 

So far after trading 45 matches we are 11 points down.

You can view full results here. 

It is important to stress that these are just our own results and everyone will have different results depending on which games they trade and how exactly they trade them. 

The problem for us however has been that 0-0s hit you very hard and we have had too many of them so far – five to be exact. 

Ideally we would like to get up to 100 matches traded before finishing the review, although at this time of the year there aren’t too many matches to trade so we will see how things go.

Goal Hunter – New Review

19th May 2019

We have been pleased to see a number of new sports trading products coming to the market recently as we are seeing an evolution in how people bet. 

The fact is that these days there is so much knowledge and info out there about a sporting event before it starts, the odds are very rarely wrong pre-event. Hence you are seeing fewer and fewer tipsters passing reviews here at Honest Betting Reviews – and even fewer maintaining their results in the long run.

But in-running all kinds of crazy things happen and people don’t know how to react – prices move all over the shop. You particularly see this in golf and NFL but also sometimes football, cricket and tennis. Plus of course it is much easier to predict how a price will move than who will actually win an event.

As professional bettors have come to realise this, so they have shifted to trading in-running or in some cases trading prices before the off. 

We see this as a definite trend in the world of gambling and only expect it to continue as more sophisticated bots and software are developed. Those investors able to find an edge in the in-play markets will make a killing whilst the rest are left behind in the dust. 

So today we have another promising new trading product to look at and this one is called Goal Hunter and comes from Jon Roberts and the Football Advisor team. 

Goal Hunter is part of their new trading platform – Betting Prophet – and shares their Number One Football Trading strategy and how they apply it almost every day.

The idea is to show you clearly and easily how to start making real trading profits. Everything is apparently covered in detail, laid out in an easy to follow format.

After joining up and following the guide you should be able to accurately predict the price movements in the goal markets and understand how the markets work, what influences the price movements and how to predict the price change at any moment.

They promise to show you how and where to find the best and most optimal trading opportunities.

You can also get access to their daily “trading sheets” – which are the lists of matches, prices and trading opportunities for the next 24 hours.

This all sounds great and if it works as well as described it will be a hugely valuable tool, but as ever we will remain skeptical until we have seen it in action and tested it for ourselves.

So we will run a trial of this detailing our thoughts on the strategy as well as recording our results from trading the system. So please watch out here for regular updates on how things are going.

In the meantime you can check out Goal Hunter for yourself here.

Ultimate Football Tips – Full Review

 

Ultimate Football Tips  is a football tipster from the reputable Betting Gods tipster platform.

It covers a range of bet types such as over/under goals, match outcome, correct score, and Asian handicap and bets come in a variety of leagues around the world – anything from the Premier League to Australia to the UAE. 

Staking is pretty sensible at between one and three points, with most bets being just one point. 

Coming into our trial results looked very promising with over 100 points profit made so we were keen to do an extended six-month trial to see how they would perform over the longer term.

Unfortunately though at the end of our review period they have finished with a loss of 23 points.

That equated to an ROI of minus 6% and a loss to the advised bank of 31%.

Whilst those figures are disappointing they are no disaster either, although it was quite an up and down trial, as you can see below:

They had actually battled back to even at one stage so a shame to see the subsequent decline but then a good rally towards the end. 

So in the end we consider that a NEUTRAL rating is the right verdict for Ultimate Football Tips. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Good – tips are sent out well in advance of matches and with an average of 1-2 bets per day there isn’t too much work involved in following the service. 

Availability of prices: Good – we found the prices were generally available and there was no real downward pressure on prices after the tips were released. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 44%, which was solid enough but just needs to be a little higher to start turning a profit at the odds tipped at. 

Advised Betting Bank: The bank advised for following the service is 75 points, which given that they were nearly 50 points down at one stage seems a little on the low side to us and we think a 100 point bank would be more appropriate. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are £1 for first 7 days then £39 per quarter or £279 per year.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

Ultimate Football Tips had something of a quiet six month trial with us and finished with a small loss of 23 points. 

Whilst that was disappointing it was not a disaster either so we feel a NEUTRAL rating is fair in this instance.

Ultimate Football Tips – New Review

16th August 2018

The start of the football season is really kicking off with a bang in terms of promising new footy services to trial here at Honest Betting Reviews.

Not only have we recently started trials of two very interesting-looking services – Player Profits and Bank Builder – but now we have a third and it may turn out to be the best of the lot.

This one is called Ultimate Football Tips and it comes from the reputable Betting Gods tipster platform.

It covers a range of bet types such as over/under goals, match outcome, correct score, and Asian handicap, but all with a selective, professional, disciplined approach to betting.

The results so far look excellent, with over 100 points profit made since May 2018, which works out at an average of over £250 profit per month to just £10 stakes.

That has been achieved with a very high return on investment of 33% and a win rate of over 37%, which are very strong metrics for a footy tipster.

Already the bank has more than doubled after just over three months of tipping.

The workload looks very manageable too with an average of just one or two bets per day so far.

Overall then this looks like it could be a top quality football service and we are looking forward to testing it out under live trial conditions.

We started receiving tips on 9th August so we will record results from then onwards.

As usual we will update things here regularly as the trial unfolds so you can see if this one is living up its billing.

In the meantime you can check out Ultimate Football Tips here.

AccaTipster – Final Review

We have reached the end of our three month trial of AccaTipster and here are the final results:-

 

Profit/Loss:   +3 points
Strike Rate:   49%
Bank Growth:    3%
ROI:   1%
Average number of bets:    5 per week
Cost:   £14.95 per month or £67 per year

AccaTipster – Full Review

 

Accatipster is a relatively new football tipping service that provides a variety of accumulator bets such as 5-folds, doubles and trebles on the main European leagues. 

It’s quite a simple service to follow, with just 5 bets per week on average, which all come in one e-mail for the weekend’s matches.

Coming into the trial it boasted some strong-looking results, with claims of turning £10 into £1463 and so on.

But how did it get on during our live trial?

Well to be fair it did OK, making 3 points profit in the end. That equated to 3% bank growth and a return on investment of 1%, so basically it pretty much broke even.

If you have accumulator refund offers available to you, then the results would have been around 12 points better, which makes them fairly good in the end.

However, we know that a good number of our members here at Honest Betting Reviews don’t have such offers available – particularly those outside of the UK and Ireland – so we haven’t included those refunds in the official results.

Here is the graph for the trial, which as you can see was in profit for most of the trial with just a dip down towards the end.

Overall then after finishing more or less where we started, we think a NEUTRAL rating is fair in this instance. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: As we said above, a pretty simple service to follow with around 5 accas per week, all sent in one e-mail and giving plenty of time to get the bets on. 

Availability of prices: There was no problem getting the advised prices. One of the good things about backing accas is that prices don’t need to move in very much, as there are multiple selections involved.

Strike rate: The strike rate during the trial was 49%, so very nearly half the bets were winners. 

Advised Betting Bank: No bank was advised but we used a 100 point bank for following the tips, which seemed sufficient. 

Subscription costs: The costs to sign up are £14.95 per month or £67 per year. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

Accatipster is a service which focuses on backing accumulators across the major European leagues.

It ended our trial with 3 points of profit, which isn’t too bad by any means but meant we more or less broke even over the trial after accounting for subscription costs. We therefore feel a NEUTRAL rating is a fair verdict here.

If you have access to acca refund offers then the results could have been a little better, so if you do have those then this could be a service to take a look at.

AccaTipster – Results Update

3rd February 2018

Sadly there has been a bit of a reversal for AccaTipster since our last update a few weeks ago.

In that time we have lost 15 points to advised prices, meaning we are now 2 points down for the trial overall.

You can view full results here.

Hopefully things will get back on track shortly and the recent run was just a blip. Time will tell as always.

Anyway, we will be back soon with more updates.

AccaTipster – Results Update

9th January 2018

Things have started off well for football accumulator specialist AccaTipster, which is 13 points up so far after one month of our trial.

You can view full results here.

There are only a handful of bets per week which is nice, so it’s a pretty easy service to follow. The tips come in a variety of leagues across Europe and some of the lower English leagues.

If you are able to utilise the bookies’ acca refund offers then you may be able to slightly improve upon the results above. For example the 5-fold on 16th December had one losing leg, so if you placed your bet with Ladbrokes (or another bookie with an acca refund offer), you would have got your stake refunded (up to £25).

Anyway, it’s been a good start to our trial of AccaTipster so will be interesting to see how this one progresses. 

 

 

 

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

AccaTipster – New Review

27th November 2017

Today we are starting a trial of a brand new football betting service called Accatipster. 

As you may have already guessed from the name, this is a service that specialises in football accumulators.

It comes from Phil Rushton, the man behind Football Value Tips, which we reviewed earlier this year and gave an approved rating to after an extended nine-month trial, so he seems to know what he’s doing and has a solid reputation in football betting.

Football accumulators can be a lot of fun and make up a good portion of punters’ weekly bets, but typically they are tough to make a long-term profit on.

However, maybe Accatipster has found the answer. They claim to have developed a low-risk betting method for accas that exploits a bookmaker loophole to make regular profits.

They have apparently had four winning months out of four so far and have achieved a 57% strike rate.

You would have made £1,650 in profit in just 4 months from following the service from £10 stakes, which are pretty decent returns.

They place bets from doubles right up to six-folds apparently, so a wide variety of accas.

This system looks intriguing as we wonder what the method they have developed is to make low-risk acca profits.

There are one or two systems out there that use bookie offers to make acca profits, but from what we can tell this doesn’t look like the same thing.

In any event, only time will tell how this gets on and what the method is.

So we will run a three-month trial of this and see how it gets on under the spotlight of a live test.

You can check back here for updates on how it is getting on.

In the meantime you can view Accatipster for yourself here.

You can view full results here.

 

Football Betting Alerts – Full Review

 

Football Betting Alerts is a football betting system that provides you with laying selections in certain markets, to be placed at Betfair (or your exchange of choice).

This primarily consists of two types of bet:-

  1. Lay the draw at the start of the match
  2. Lay the current score at HT (at maximum odds of 4.5)

There is no trading involved, you just place the bets and then leave them to run.

There is quite a high volume of bets with an average of five per day – although inevitably this tends to mean quite a lot more than that on weekends but less on weekdays.

The good news is that you can use a bot to automate the bets for you, which will significantly reduce the workload of placing all the bets.

We used the bot ourselves during the trial – called the “Prof-IT Bot” and can confirm it works well once you have configured it all. The bot costs from £12 to £18 per month, depending on which plan you go for. 

 

Results Analysis

So how did Football Betting Alerts get on during our trial?

Well at first glance the results were pretty good, with 391 points profit being made at a return on investment of 5%. 

As you can see from the graph below, it was a little topsy-turvy, with good profits early on being wiped out before a positive run again to finish nicely in profit:-

Football Betting Alerts Profit Graph

However, we had concerns about the service which unnerved us a little bit and dampened our enthusiasm for it. These were:

  1. They changed the type of selections midway through the trial, adding in laying the HT draw. As we mentioned in our last update, this strategy was disastrous and was then removed to be “tested” first. In reality it should not have been added in the first place until properly tested.
  2. The staking also changed midway through the trial, from risking 10 points per selection to 20 points. This added to the sense of inconsistency and could have messed with people’s banks.
  3. There was a little lack of clarity at times on how to bet the selections. In some cases, the odds on the correct score are above 4.5 at HT. At the start you were advised to put in an order at 4.5 and wait for your bet to be matched, hopefully before there was a goal. Then this changed to risking half your liability at the HT odds and half when the odds hit 4.5

So overall the picture was one of inconsistency and lead to a bit of frustration for us – and we expect other users – with things regularly changing during the trial.

Before a service is released to the public, particularly one which costs £79 per month, these things should be worked out in advance and guidance should be clear.

Hopefully these things can be ironed out and they seem to be settling on a preferred methodology now, so we will keep an eye on things and make sure that they stay that way.

In summary we think the results overall are good and the service has potential, but our opinion of it has been tempered by the constant changes that were made to the selection process during our trial period.

So for now we are awarding them a NEUTRAL rating and we will watch how the service progresses.

Let’s just hope they can settle things down and concentrate on a clear set of methods now.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use:  This can be quite a work-intensive service to follow, with often ten or more selections per day at weekends, meaning unless you are able to sit in front of your computer for most of the day, use of a bot is essential. Fortunately the PROF-IT BOT that has been programmed for FTA works well and costs from £12 to £18 per month. 

Availability of prices:  As mentioned above, sometimes the current score will be above 4.5 at half time, so you will have to wait for it to hit that price before a goal goes in. In terms of liquidity though, it shouldn’t be a problem as you can use other markets (over 0.5 / 1.5 / 2.5 etc) which have excellent liquidity. Occasionally the lay the draw prices move quite a bit from the published prices, so you need to move quickly on those as soon as the tips are posted. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 70%, which on the face of it is very good but we did endure a drawdown of over 500 points during the trial, which is quite a large amount and bear in mind that with stakes of 20, your liability on the correct score bets will be 70, so a losing run can quickly hit your bank.  

Advised Betting Bank: There was no bank advised for the trial, so we used a 1500 point bank which should be enough with a 70% strike rate and even with a bad drawdown during the trial, the bank was never in jeopardy. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are £42 for 14 days or £79 per month. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL 

We have mixed feelings about Football Betting Alerts. On the one hand they have produced good profits and it seems the service has identified a certain edge over the market on its particular bets.

However, on the other hand we were quite frustrated during the trial by the constant changes. The worry when this happens is that the service is making it up as it goes along and doesn’t really have a sure-fire strategy.

Hopefully that isn’t the case here and these were just “teething problems” of a new service, but only time will tell on that front.

What we need to see going forward is a consistent and settled strategy with clear instructions and no ambiguity on how selections are backed, certainly for a service that charges £79 per month and with the use of a bot that most people will need at an extra £12 – £18 per month.  

If they can achieve the desired consistency, then we would be happy to revisit this review and potentially upgrade to a higher rating.

In the meantime though it’s a hold and watch briefing for now.

Football Betting Alerts – Results Update

15th April 2017

Sadly there has been a significant reversal of fortunes for Football Betting Alerts, who have lost virtually all of their previously accrued profits.

Since our last update, we have lost 324 points, which means they are now just 19 points up for the trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

What is more concerning for us though is the regular changing of strategies. Last time we reported that they had added an additional strategy, lay the HT draw.

Well after some poor results that strategy was then withdrawn and they declared they would be testing it first.

Well it would have been nice to test it first before adding it as a strategy and for those us of following it to have lost quite a bit of money!

Then we have some additional strategies being added – “Strat 4” and “over 55” which get a lot of hype but are quite poorly explained as to how to trade them.

Frankly this is all quite frustrating to follow as a subscriber and we hope they can iron out these issues and settle on some consistent strategies going forward, as well as give much clearer guides to the other strategies and full results for those.

Football Betting Alerts – Results Update

27th March 2017

Things have continued to move on smoothly upwards for Football Betting Alerts, with another 77 points of profit added since our last update three weeks ago.

That means we are now 343 points in profit for the trial overall.

You can view full results here.

They have recently added another method to the set of systems. Previously there were just two strategies: lay the draw and lay the current score at half time.

Now however we have a third strategy, lay the half time draw. What you do is lay the HT draw before the game, then lay it again after 15 minutes, whilst also covering the 1-1 HT score. 

We are normally a bit concerned when a new strategy is added mid-way through a trial, as the other two were working very well and were apparently based on a long period of proofing the selections.

But we will give them the benefit of the doubt and hopefully this new strategy will add some more profits to the coffers – only time will tell of course.

The other thing to mention is that we have just signed up for the Prof-it Bot to trade the selections automatically for us, so we will report back on how that goes at the time of our next update.

Football Betting Alerts – Results Update

4th March 2017

Sometimes you give something the big build up, only for it to disappoint you.

We are pleased to say that this hasn’t been the case with Football Betting Alerts so far, which is fully living up to our expectations.

After three weeks of our trial and 125 bets, they are nicely in profit: 266 points in profit to be exact.

You can view full results here.

That is risking a maximum of 35 points on each selection, to win 10 points.

The good news is that they are offering a 3 day trial for just £1 here please note this is only available until midnight Sunday 5th March 2017. 

Just to recap, all bets are either lay the draw or laying the current score at half time. So pretty simple to follow.

There is no trading out, just place the bets and then see if they win or not.

It is looking very good so far, but of course it is still early days and much too soon to draw any conclusions. That is why we run trials for a minimum of three months – to give enough time to make a solid conclusion about a service.

If this keeps up the kind of form it has shown so far though, it will be a great addition to the portfolio.

You can get a 3 day trial for just £1 here – please note this is only available until midnight Sunday 5th March 2017 though. 

Back soon with more updates.

Football Betting Alerts – New Review

21st February 2017

Occasionally there is something that lands in your inbox that genuinely makes you sit up and take notice.

We have just had that feeling with a new football service that on the basis of what we have seen so far, could be one of the best betting systems we have come across in a long time.

The service in question is called Football Betting Alerts and is provided by the same team behind Football Trading Alerts, amongst others.

The system was designed by a guy called “The Professor”, who has built an algorithm to find instances where the chances of a particular event occurring in a football match are over 80%.

He is a professor of mathematics and a computer systems specialist, so clearly knows what he is talking about when it comes to these things.

His selections were proofed for over three months to the FTA team and the results were nothing short of superlative.

With stakes of just £10 lays (liability of max £40), the Professor made over £1,000 profit over the proofing period.

What is more, the strike rate for that period was over 80%, which to make that kind of profit at such a high strike rate is quite incredible.

Selections are of two types:

  1. Lay the draw at the start of the match (and either just leave it to run to the end or trade out in the last 15 minutes, depending on your personal preference)
  2. Lay the current score at HT (or back over 0.5/1.5/2.5 etc depending on the current score)

That’s it, pretty simple.

They are planning to set up a bot so that you can add that to your subscription and have the bets placed automatically, so all bases are covered.

We signed up to test the system ourselves and will run a three month live trial here on the site.

This weekend was our first of testing it out and results were excellent.

On Saturday, there were 11 selections and 9 were winners, with 2 scratch trades – so no losers! On Sunday, things weren’t quite as good, with 10 selections, 7 winners and 3 losers.

Overall on the weekend, with £50 lays of the LTD and £100 back stakes on the over 0.5/1.5/2.5 etc, we made over £250 profit.

A superb start and needless to say if those results hold up over the long run, then we are talking about something very special.

Although it is very tough to consistently win your football bets, this may have found a unique approach to doing so – let’s hope so!
