Tennis Bett Full Review

 

It has been a difficult job finding a winning tennis tipster, despite tennis being supposedly one of the most punter-friendly sports to bet on.

So we were interested to come across Tennis Bett, a service that had a good record coming into our trial of having doubled a 50 point bank over the year before our trial started.

Unfortunately things didn’t quite take off during our trial, with a loss of 8 points being recorded over the three months. That represented a small loss of 16% of the bank. 

However, we were impressed with the professional way the service was run and our results matched those on the Tennis Bett website, so we can reasonably presume the previous results are accurate too.

Here is the profit graph for the trial:

Tennis Bett Profit Graph

Things were going reasonably well but unfortunately just trailed off towards the end to finish in a loss overall.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: With tips sent by e-mail and normally provided early in the morning, there is plenty of time to get the bets on. There is an average of just over 1 bet per day, so the workload is minimal.

Availability of prices: There is excellent liquidity in tennis, so by using the exchanges you can normally at least match, if not beat, the advised prices.

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 52%, which is solid enough and means losing streaks should be short, with the ability to bet at reasonably high stakes.

Advised Betting Bank: A 50 point betting bank was advised, which seems adequate to cover drawdowns with a strike rate above 50%.

Subscription costs: You can get the first 30 days for just €4.95, then the costs are €24.95/month, €49.95/quarter or €149.95 for a lifetime subscription.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

There aren’t too many tennis tipsters around when you compare them to the number of football and horse racing tipsters.

So it follows that there aren’t too many profitable tennis tipsters either.

We were hopeful we had found one in the shape of Tennis Bett, but unfortunately they didn’t quite achieve a profitable trial here at Honest Betting Reviews.

However, we do see potential with the service and liked the way it was professionally run.

With a loss of 8 points during the trial, it was not the end of the world and is certainly recoverable fairly quickly if things get going for them. 

So we will continue to monitor things and see if Tennis Bett can pick up its form as the tennis season gets going over the Summer.

Tennis Bett – Results Update

16th April 2016

Things have picked up nicely for Tennis Bett with 4 points of profit added since our last update.

That means they are now 4.61 points up overall for the trial.

You can view full results here.

This is a nice simple service to follow and Jim who runs it certainly seems to know his stuff. 

Let’s hope things continue in positive fashion for Tennis Bett.

Tennis Bett – Results Update

29th March 2016

It has been a slightly uneventful start to our trial of leading tennis tipster Tennis Bett.

So far they are exactly +0.49 points in profit after around six weeks of our trial.

You can view full results here.

It is a good time for the tennis season now with some top Masters Series events plus the run up to the French Open with the clay court events, so hopefully we will see things take off shortly.

The service is nice and easy to follow, with bets sent out in the morning normally and analysis accompanying the selections. 

Back soon with more updates on how things are going for Tennis Bett.

Tennis Bett – New Review

11th February 2016

We are pleased to be commencing a new trial of a tennis tipster here at Honest Betting Reviews.

Tennis tipsters are a rare breed – indeed, whilst the internet is swamped by legions of horse racing and football tipsters selling their wares to all and sundry, you have to search quite hard to find any tennis tipsters.

The two tennis specialists we have tried so far – Tennis Trading League and Serve It Up Tennis Tips – unfortunately both failed three month trials. 

The other tennis tipster we have tried, Banker Bets, is actually more of a football tipster with some bets on the tennis during big tournaments etc.

So when we were approached to trial Tennis Bett from a chap calling himself just Jim, we were more than happy to take up the offer.

The results on the website look good, with a 50 point bank having more than doubled to over 100 points using level stakes over the past year.

The long term strike rate is over 70% which is pretty healthy and should mean losing streaks are kept to a minimum.

You can get a one month trial for just €4.95 followed by €24.95 per month, €49.95 per quarter or €149.95 for lifetime.

So we look forward to getting the trial under way and seeing how this one gets on.

It is slightly surprising that there aren’t more tennis tipsters out there, particularly as the bookies’ overround on tennis is low, markets on Betfair are very liquid and I seem to remember reading somewhere that tennis is statistically the best sport to bet on from a punter’s point of view.

Anyway, let’s see if we can land our first winning tennis tipster here with Tennis Bett.

Back soon with our first update on how things are going.

GG Tips – Final Review

After two months we thought it was time to call it a day on our trial of GG Tips.

With a grand total of 336 points lost, there didn’t seem much point continuing to monitor results.

As we suspected at the outset, it is virtually impossible to make a profit from tipping in every race and that has proved to be the case here.

So certainly we couldn’t advise that you back all the bets put up by GG Tips.

 

Potentially Profitable Angles

However, is there any aspect of the service that might have potential of generating profit?

Well, here is a breakdown of the results by the type of bet over our trial:

 

Bet Type Profit/loss
Every race    -251.7 points
Bet of the Day     -0.78 points
Daily Double  -23.1 points
Tasty Treble  -59 points
Lucky 15  +4.11 points
Outsider  -7.5 points

 

So there is potential in the Bet of the Day, Lucky 15 and Outsider bets. All of the results are recorded at SP, so using Betfair SP or early prices, you would certainly be able to beat these results.

Using Betfair SP, you would have made a profit on the Bet of the Day selections, which is good news and confirms our initial thoughts that having a “nap” of the day is much more likely to produce a profit than backing in all races.

The other good thing about GG Tips is that it is free and there is a host of other information on the site, including cards and results, news stories, blogs from tipsters and horse racing experts and alerts where you can get notified if a particular horse is due to run.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

So overall we think a neutral rating is a fair verdict for GG Tips.

It is probably best avoiding the tips in all the individual races, but the Bet of the Day, Lucky 15 and Outsider Bets have shown the potential to be profitable. 

And with the service being free and having a number of other features, GG Tips is overall a decent racing site in our opinion.

 

 

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

GG Tips – Results Update

23rd April 2016

It’s been a sorry story for GG Tips, who have dropped another 175 points since our last update.

That puts them 285 points down for the trial so far. 

You can view full results here.

Our worry expressed at the start of the trial was that it is virtually impossible to make a profit when tipping in every race and that certainly seems to have been borne out here.

We may conclude this trial early as it is so far down there doesn’t seem a great deal of point in continuing it much longer.

 

 

 

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

GG Tips – Results Update

30th March 2016

It’s been a rough start to our trial of GG Tips. This is a website that provides tips for every race in the UK and Ireland on a daily basis, plus their best bet of the day and some multiple selections.

After a month of following all their tips, they are -110 points down to advised prices.

You can view full results here.

This seems to be proof if ever it were needed that it is practically impossible to make a profit from tipping on every race. 

However, unfortunately their naps and multiples haven’t done very well either. Although yesterday they were very close to going through the card at Southwell, picking 6 out of 7 winners. 

Anyway, hopefully things will pick up for them over the remainder of the trial. 

 

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

GG Tips – New Review

22nd February 2016

Today we are starting a new trial of a free horse racing tipster called GG Tips – or to give them their proper website name, gg.co.uk.

This is a very popular tipping site that offers tips for every race in the UK!

Not bad going, although we usually have reservations about tipsters who do that, as it can often mean you are tipping for the sake of it in races when there isn’t really a good bet.

But fortunately they also have their “best bets” of the day that include a single, double, treble, lucky 15 and an outsider of the day.

So hopefully these more focused bets – their naps if you like – will produce the goods. That’s not to say betting in every race can’t work of course, it’s just that it is hard and we haven’t seen it done successfully before.

It’s always nice to see a tipster that offers their tips for free though, especially as there are some quite expensive ones out there – often who aren’t even very good!

There don’t seem to be any results for their tips published on the site – or at least none that were easy to find – which is usually a small cause for concern, but does not necessarily mean the results aren’t good. We shall find out!

Anyway, this website has a very big following so we doubt people are following them if they aren’t very good. That’s the theory anyhow. 

We will run our normal trial and see how they get on.

Back soon with an update on GG Tips.

Profit Pony – Final Review

Update 19th May 2016

Just a quick note to say we will be continuing to monitor Profit Pony for a few months to see results over the long term. So far the news is good with 50 points of profit accumulated to date in May.

 

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

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

 

Profit/loss:    -11 points 
Strike Rate:   23%
Bank Growth:    -11%
Cost:   £19.99/month, £49.99/quarter or £79.99/6 months
ROI:   -5%
Average number of tips:    1.5 per day
VERDICT:   NEUTRAL
Rating:

Profit Pony – Full Review

 

They call it the reviewer’s curse. 

You find a tipster that has an amazing record. In this case over 900 points of profit and 17 winning months out of 18.

Then you start your trial. And things seem to go immediately wrong.

In our case we managed to hit their worst month ever, with February finishing 35 points down.

Things improved somewhat over the rest of the trial however, to finish with an 11 point loss at advised prices and -18 points at Betfair.

That is certainly no catastrophe and represents just an 11% reduction in the betting bank, so we think overall a neutral rating is a fair verdict for Profit Pony.

Here are the results for the trial in graph format:

Profit Pony Results Graph

As you can see, things got off to a rough start but recovered well to almost finish level by the end of the trial.

Previous Concerns

We had expressed some concerns in our previous results update about some discrepancies between our results and those published on the Profit Pony website.

We have now received confirmation from them that the additional tip for the Irish Grand National which returned 41 points profit was a Twitter tip.

There is also a tip listed in their results on 16th April which returned 6 points and that appears to have been a Twitter tip as well.

It is fair enough if they want to include the Twitter tips in their results, presuming these are clearly marked as such.

As we said previously though, we hadn’t received any instructions to also follow their Twitter tips, so can’t include these in our results.

We think the service would benefit with some guidance upon signing up about how best to follow the tips and some information about the additional Twitter tips.

And we also think customer service could be improved somewhat as it took a good few weeks to hear back regarding our questions.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Tips are sent out at varying times, which can make things a little tricky. But there are on average just 1-2 tips per day, so the workload is low and should only take a few minutes a day to get the bets on.

Availability of prices: The prices were generally freely available, with the odd one or two being backed quite significantly. There wasn’t too much of a difference between the results at advised prices and Betfair SP, which is reassuring. Our advice would be to back the tips as soon as you can after they are sent out to maximise returns.  

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 23%, which is pretty good for the kind of profit they have been making. The winners come reasonably regularly which is positive. 

Advised Betting Bank: There is no betting bank advised but we used a 100 point bank for the trial which we think would be sufficient, although a 150 point bank would certainly give you enough leeway. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are pretty reasonable at £19.99/month, £49.99/quarter or £79.99 for 6 months.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

It seems to have been a case of reviewer’s curse here with Profit Pony hitting their worst ever run as soon as we signed up.

The trial finished 11 points down in the end, which was only a small loss so we think a neutral rating is fair here.

We do think the service could benefit from some clear instructions after people sign up though as to what to do regarding their Twitter tips.

And an improvement in customer service would help things as well.

The long-term results are very good however and we wouldn’t want to write this service off purely on the basis of our trial. It seems worth following them for a little longer to see if the form previous to our trial can be recaptured.

 

 

 

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Profit Pony – Results Update

2nd April 2016

It has continued to be a tricky time for Profit Pony, who are still struggling during our trial.

They are now 30 points down at advised prices after two months of following their tips and -22 points at Betfair SP.

That is a slight improvement on last time though, when they were 37 points down at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

However, perhaps of more concern to us is the discrepancy between our results and their recorded results on their website.

On 29th March, they have a tip recorded for Rogue Angel winning the Irish Grand National at 33/1, giving them a supposed 41.25 points profit according to their own results.

However, we have scoured our e-mails and cannot find any evidence of having received this tip.

On their website at the bottom it merely says “Some may have missed the Grand National tip so the profit for March for them would of been around +29pts.”

There is no explanation as to why some “may have missed this tip,” which is rather galling when you consider this makes a 41 point difference to the bank for the month.

We have e-mailed Profit Pony about this but are yet to receive a response. We have also e-mailed them about a couple of other issues during our trial and have had no reply to those questions either.

So customer service here seems very poor and is a major cause for concern.

In addition, that Irish Grand National tip is not the only discrepancy between our results and theirs. 

There are a couple of other occasions where we did not receive any e-mail for tips recorded in their results. 

It may be that they are including some of their Twitter tips, but if they are then this is a significant problem because we have no record of having been advised to follow both their e-mails and Twitter feed.

Even if we were, we would ask why that would be the case as most people would not have the additional time to follow Twitter waiting for a tip to be sent out. We would also ask why all tips could simply not be sent by e-mail anyway.

In addition, the tips are sent out at erratic times which makes it a little tricky to follow the service not having that consistency.

Overall then, unless we have some very distinct clarification on these issues and a major improvement in customer service, we would have to issue significant warnings about following Profit Pony for the time being.

We will update things with our final review in a few weeks, when hopefully we will have things cleared up.

Profit Pony – Results Update

15th February 2016

Well they call it the reviewer’s curse. You join a service that has an outstanding record. Over 900 points profit in 18 months for Profit Pony, with the worst month being a loss of just 19 points.

Then they hit their worst ever run.

Since I started proofing the tips on 25th January, they have lost 37 points at advised prices, with only two winners so far.

You can view full results here.

Things are a little better at Betfair SP, with the total standing at -29 points so far.

Maybe it is a curse, or just one of those strange coincidences. Who knows? But either way it is disappointing. 

Hopefully this is just a minor blip and we will return to normality very soon.  

Back soon with more updates.

Profit Pony – New Review

22nd January 2016

We have come across a horse racing tipster that we are quite excited about.

It doesn’t happen very often, as we trawl through tipster websites across the internet and tend to find results that either aren’t very good at all or seem too good to be true (and nearly always are).

Well in this instance we have found one that is between those two extremes, whilst being towards the latter end of the scale, in that their results look excellent – but not so good that they are obviously made up.

Plus they apparently used to tip on twitter before they set up their website and had a loyal group of followers with a clear tipping history you could see on twitter.

The service in question is called Profit Pony and has a fairly clear and simple website where you can view their previous results.

And what results they are! Over 900 points profit since starting in July 2014, with 17 profitable months out of 18.

From what we can tell so far most of the tips are 1 point win or 1 point each way, so it is not like they use some crazy staking system to inflate results either.

The only losing month was April 2015 when they apparently had over 25 second place horses (out of 109), so sounds like they were very unlucky that month.

There isn’t a great deal of info given about how tips are selected, other than to say that they are a small team of dedicated punters.

Let’s hope I haven’t put the kibosh on them with the big build up and they can keep up their previous level of form for the duration of our trial and beyond.

Will be back soon with our first update on how Profit Pony get on.

In the meantime you can check out the service here.

Templegate Tips – Final Review

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

 

Profit/loss:    -11 points
Strike Rate:   23%

Cost:   FREE
ROI:   -4%
Average number of bets:    3 per day
VERDICT:   NEUTRAL

Templegate Tips – Full Review

 

So we have completed our trial of “Britain’s No.1 Tipster.” Is Templegate deserving of that title following his efforts over the last three months?

Well not quite – with a total of 11 points lost over the trial, it has not exactly been award-winning stuff.

However, it has not been a disaster either and considering as a newspaper tipster he is forced to tip pretty much every day, they are certainly not the worst results in the world.

So we think a neutral rating is the fairest verdict for Templegate.

Here are the results for the trial in graph format:

Templegate Tips Profit Graph

As you can see, things got off to a bad start but he managed to battle back and only finished slightly down in the end.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: A relatively straightforward service to follow. Tips are normally posted well before racing on the Sun website and there are 3 tips per day on average, so the workload isn’t too great.

Availability of prices: There was a bit of a difference between the advised prices and Betfair SP results, with the former making 11 points loss but the latter made 39 points loss. However, there is not a stampede for prices in the same way as with other popular tipsters like Pricewise and Hugh Taylor, so you should be able to match the prices or get close to them.

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 23%, so a little bit of patience will be required in following this service.

Advised Betting Bank: A betting bank is not advised for the service but we used a notional 100 point bank, which seemed more than adequate with a maximum drawdown of 34 points during the trial.

Subscription costs: The good thing is that the tips are provided free through the Sun website.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

We started out this trial by saying we were sceptical of newspaper tipsters and that most of them make a loss in the long term.

However, Templegate seems to be one of the few exceptions to this rule and has apparently made over 200 points profit at a return on investment of 10% over the long run.

He didn’t quite manage to achieve those levels during our trial, but a loss of 11 points was no calamity either. 

So we think a neutral verdict is a fair verdict for Mr Jones and we will keep an eye on things to see how he progresses.

Certainly if you going to the races and are looking for some newspaper tips to go on then you could do worse than using Templegate’s.

 

 

 

 

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Templegate Tips – Results Update

22nd March 2016

There has been a bit of return to form for Templegate – at advised prices at least – since our last update in February. 

He has managed 13 points of profit at advised prices in that time, although at Betfair SP he has actually lost 3 points.

So that puts Templegate on -5 points overall at advised prices and -29 points at Betfair SP.

You can view full results here.

So quite a difference there between the advised prices and Betfair SP, but good to see things picking up for Mr Jones. 

Back soon with our final review.

Templegate Tips – Results Update

1st February 2016

It has been a rough start to our trial of “Britain’s no.1 Tipster.” After three weeks, Steve Jones, aka Templegate of the Sun, is 18 points down at early prices and -26 points at Betfair SP.

You can view full results here.

As we said at the outset of the trial, we are normally very sceptical of newspaper tipsters, primarily because they are forced to tip every day and to have “winners” for their readers rather than selectively making tips to achieve long-term profits.

However, Mr Jones has apparently achieved long-term profits, so perhaps deserves some acclaim for that.

It hasn’t been an ideal start to the trial, but to be fair things have been tough lately with the weather and changeable conditions, so hopefully things will pick up for the remainder of the trial.

We will return soon with further updates.  

 

 

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Templegate Tips – New Review

8th January 2016

One of the most famous names in horse racing tipping is Templegate – aka Steve Jones of the Sun.

Modestly calling himself “Britain’s No.1 Tipster,” Templegate provides tips each day in the Sun Newspaper, with Naps and then picks for each race on the day, as is normal for newspaper tipsters.

You would be forgiven for being sceptical about newspaper racing tipsters, who typically make a substantial loss over the long term. This is partly because they are forced to tip in every race and invariably just pick favourites so that they can talk about having “winners,” with their newspaper rarely tracking their overall profit and loss.

However, Templegate has actually proven quite adept at tipping, have apparently made over 200 points profit on his naps over the last couple of years.

We are always on the lookout for free tipsters who provide consistent profit, so with a strong record we thought it would be interesting to put Templegate under the microscope of a live trial here at Honest Betting Reviews.

We will also be intrigued to see how prices stand up and whether there is a stampede for his tips in the same way as there is for the likes of Pricewise and Hugh Taylor.

So with that in mind we kick of our live trial of Templegate’s tips and will report on progress soon.

Greyhound Racing Tips – Full Review

 

It has been a good trial for Greyhound Racing tips, the second greyhound tipster we have reviewed here at Honest Betting Reviews.

The trial finished in a profit of 13 points, which is a respectable total to have accumulated.

However, we felt with a bank growth of 17% and a return on investment of 3.8%, it was just slightly under the level needed for a recommended rating. 

There is a good deal to like about the service though and if the dogs are your thing, then this may be worth having a go.

Here are the results for the trial in graph format:

Greyhound Racing Profit Graph

As you can see, things got off to a difficult start and they were over 25 points down at one stage, but picked up well over the second half of the trial to finish in profit.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Quite a simple service to follow. There are an average of two tips per day and there is plenty of time to get the bets on. If the tips are sent out earlier in the day then sometimes prices aren’t available yet, so you have to wait until later in the day for prices to be posted. 

Availability of prices: There was good availability in terms of prices and no problems getting the advised odds.

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 33% which is good and means losing runs shouldn’t be too severe when following this service. 

Advised Betting Bank: A betting bank is not advised for the service but we used a 75 point bank for the trial, which seemed about the right level given that we were 27 points down at one stage.

Subscription costs: The costs are reasonable at £1 for the first 7 days then £29.99 per month. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

It is always commendable when a service finishes in profit over the course of a three month trial and Greyhound Racing Tips has finished with a decent 13 points of profit here.

Whilst this is a positive total, it was just a little below the level we look for to give a strong recommended rating, with a return on investment of 3.8%.

However, if you are a greyhound fan and looking for a tipster to follow, you could certainly do worse than following this one. 

It is straightforward to follow and Shaun who runs the service really knows his stuff – a greyhound aficionado for sure.

Greyhound Racing Tips – Results Update

Greyhound Racing Tips – New Review

16th December 2015

We are always keen to expand our range here at Honest Betting Reviews and take in as many different sports as we can in our efforts to find some winning betting systems and tipsters.

So we are pleased to be getting just our second trial of a greyhound tipster under way today.

The tipster comes in the form of Greyhound Racing Tips, a long standing tipping service from a supposed greyhound racing insider using the alias Shaun Murphy. 

Fortunately you are offered the option of trying the tips out for 7 days for just £1, so a nice cheap introduction to the trial, followed by £29.99 per month.

Greyhound Racing Tips

You also apparently receive race analysis to accompany the tips, which we always like to see as a guide to how the tipster is coming up with their selections – and not just sticking a pin in their Racing Post.

The past results are now published on the website with full selection details and the total profit/loss for the month.

Update – we are pleased to see that Shaun has also now added the overall totals for profit and loss, which stand at:

  • 2014: +42.7 points
  • 2015: +7.7 points

So it will be interesting to see how this gets on under the spotlight of our trial. We have been impressed so far with our other greyhound service under review, Premier Greyhound Tips, which has shown excellent levels of consistency.

Whether Greyhound Racing Tips can live up to that example remains to be seen, but please check back here for regular updates during the trial.

In the meantime, you can check out Greyhound Racing Tips here.

Free Super Tips – Final Review

We have come to the end of our three month trial of Free Super Tips and here are the final results:

Free Super Tips Full Review

 

The first thing we would say about Free Super Tips is that it has not been an easy service to review.

There are so many tips posted on the site that it would be very difficult to follow them all. We have focused on the football bets and excluded the American sports, tennis and golf tips.

And even when talking about the football bets, we have focused on four of the main types of bets: Accumulator bets, Both Teams to Score (BTTS) accas, Both Teams to Score & Win and Daily Doubles, plus the “£10 to £1,000” Challenge.

Whilst the main accumulator bets finished in a loss of 53 points, they did land one of their  “£10 to £1,000” Challenges over the trial, which was impressive.

So on that basis, we think a fair rating is neutral in that following all their bets to £10 stakes probably would have left you with a small profit when you take into account the other £10 to £1,000 challenges that lost.

The nice thing about the website of course is that all tips are free, which is refreshing in this age of some very overpriced tipsters.

Plus everything is very nicely presented and there are quick click-throughs to bet slips with Bet 365 below the tips.

Ease of use: It all depends on how many of their tips you want to follow. If you want to follow all of them, then this would be a time-consuming process as there are a large number of tips, plus quite a lot of them are accumulators which take more time to place than individual bets. 

Availability of prices: The prices are generally widely available, although there are some more niche bets in obscure leagues where odds can be pushed in, but the most of the time you should be ok to match their prices.  

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 13% so you will need some patience if you are following their various accumulator bets. 

Advised Betting Bank: A betting bank is not advised for the service but we used a 200 point bank for the trial given the kinds of odds they tip at. Of course you may want to use separate banks for each of the types of bets you follow.

Subscription costs: This is the good news: FREE!

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

Free Super Tips is quite a novel website that provides a large number of tips, focused mainly on football but also including other sports as well.

They provide lots of different accumulator bets, meaning you would need a decent sized bank to follow these tips.

Unfortunately their football accumulator tips finished in a 53 point loss over the trial. 

However, they did land one of their “£10 to £1,000 Challenges” over the trial as well, an impressive feat.

Overall, if you’d followed all the acca tips plus those Challenges, you would have a small profit, so we think a neutral rating is fair verdict for them.

The great thing is the tips are provided for free, which is good to see in this day and age.

This might be a service for you if you like the buzz of winning big accas and the like.

Free Super Tips – Results Update

1st March 2016

Our trial of Free Super Tips had started off very well but sadly things have gone somewhat south for them recently. 

They have dropped 59 points since our last update just over a month ago. 

That puts them at -45 points for the trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

We would stress that this is just covering their football accumulators and not their tips on US sports, tennis or golf.

Just covering their football accumulator tips has been quite a lot of work, so we can’t imagine what it must be like to follow every one of their tips!

Anyway, let’s hope for a couple of big winners before the end of the trial to get things back into the positive.

Free Super Tips – Results Update

26th January 2016

There has been a small loss for Free Super Tips since our last update a few weeks ago. They have dropped 11 points in that time to stand at +14 points for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

The results take into account their various football betting tips including the regular accumulators, the BTS accas, the BTS & Win accas and the Daily Doubles.

However recently they have also landed one of their “£10 to £1,000” Challenges. This is basically where they start with £10 and then with each bet they place their stake and winnings onto the next bet, so the stake becomes progressively larger until you are betting a few hundred quid at the end.

Once you reach the £1,000 then the challenge is done and you start again. We weren’t proofing these at the beginning but there were bet slips on the website showing the bets so we are fairly sure it was genuine. We will be proofing the £10 to £1,000 Challenges from now on.

So overall this looks like a promising service, particularly as it is free.

Back soon with more updates.

Free Super Tips – Results Update

30th December 2015

It has been a good start to our trial of Free Super Tips, who are +25 points in profit so far after nearly a month of tipping.

You can view full results here.

They tip only in accumulators and have a variety of different categories they provide selections in. So for example there are match betting and over/under accumulators, BTTS (both teams to score) and BTTS & Win accumulators, as well as daily doubles.

They have landed three nice accas so far, at odds of 35/1, 51/1 & 22/1. Two of those have been in the BTTS markets and one in the BTTS & Win market, so that seems to be their specialism based on the evidence so far.

We have only been recording their football tips, but they also tip in American sports including NBA, NHL and College football.

A good start so far and always nice to see a service that provides free tips. Let’s see how things go for them over the next two months.

Free Super Tips – New Review

11th November 2015

We always welcome a service that provides free tips here at Honest Betting Reviews, given the extortionate prices that some tipsters feel justified in charging.

So we are pleased to commence a trial of Free Super Tips, a website offering free tips on football. They offer tips primarily on televised matches and big games, with daily doubles and accumulators as well. 

They provide full match previews for the big games, with comprehensive stats and analysis. As ever though, the key thing is the results they produce, so we will be interested to see how they get on during our trial.

There are no results published on the website, which can be a worrying sign but does not always indicate that a service isn’t profitable. Probably worse than that is a service that claims great results that seem too good to be true – normally they are!

Anyway, with detailed match previews and the use of statistics, it appears they have a solid grounding on which to build a potentially profitable service. 

And as we say, it is nice to come across a service that offers its tips for free. If their tips are anything like as good as another free service we are trialing at the moment in the form of Betting Bias, then they will be doing well.

We will run our normal three month trial and see how they get on. Please check back here for results updates as the trial progresses.

In the meantime you can check out Free Super Tips here.

Max Racing Tips Full Review

 

There have been quite a few neutral ratings for horse racing tipsters here at Honest Betting Reviews and Max Racing Tips joins the club.

This is a tipster from the reputable Betting Gods stable that tips quite selectively with approximately one bet per day.

Things were a bit of a struggle for them at one stage, as they were 68 points down midway through the trial, made an abortive attempt to get back in the black but made a decent recovery towards the end, as you can see below.

Max Racing Tips Profit Graph

Somewhat of a rollercoaster ride I think they call that!

Overall they finished 18 points down, which from a 100 point bank is a slight disappointment but nothing hugely alarming.

For now we think a neutral rating is a fair rating and we will keep an eye on things at Maxing Racing tips for a while to see if they can recapture the form shown prior to our trial.

 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: With just 1 bet per day on average, the workload is low and selections are normally sent out in the morning so plenty of time to get the bets down.

Availability of prices: There was no issue with the availability of prices and there was little difference between the results at advised prices and Betfair SP, which is a good sign. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 29%, which is somewhat below the long term average of 34%.

Advised Betting Bank: No bank was advised when we signed up so we used a 100 point bank, which was more than comfortable for the trial.   

Subscription costs: You can get a free 14 day trial – as with all Betting Gods services – followed by subscription costs of £94.95/per month; £69.95/quarter or £149.95 for life.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

Max Racing Tips had made over 200 points profit coming into our trial, but as is so often the case, they failed to match that level during a live trial, dropping 18 points overall.

Things were much worse than that at one stage, as they were 68 points down at one point but made a good recovery towards the end.

A loss of 18% of the bank isn’t the end of the world and we think a neutral rating here is fair for this one. 

As ever we will keep an eye on things and see if matters improve over the coming months.

Max Racing Tips – Results Update

11th February 2016

There has been a bit of an improvement for Max Racing Tips, who have added 26 points of profit at advised prices and 19 points profit at Betfair SP since our last update a month ago.

That has started to turn things around for them, as they were 56 points down last time so are now 30 points down at advised prices and 36 points down at Betfair SP for the trial as a whole.

You can view full results here.

Let’s hope the turnaround continues and they can finish the trial in profit.

Max Racing Tips – Results Update

12th January 2016

It has been more pain for Max Racing Tips since our last update a month ago. They have lost an additional 9 points to stand at -56 points at advised prices and -55 points at Betfair SP.

You can view full results here.

Staking is quite high here, with an average of 2.75 points per selection, so at 1 point level stakes it would be more like 20 points down, which is more palatable.

With a month to go it will be a very decent effort indeed for this one to get back into profit.

Back in a month with our final verdict on Max Racing Tips.

Max Racing Tips – New Review

20th November 2015

It’s over to Betting Gods again today for another one of their promising horse racing tipsters.

This time it is Max Racing Tips, who began tipping back in May and since then have amassed over 200 points of profit.

Apparently high levels of painstaking research go into the tips and that certainly appears to be reflected in the results.

The strike rate so far is a healthy 36% and the return on investment is an impressive 26%.

There are on average about 40 bets per month, so just over one per day which sounds manageable.

We will put this one through its paces and see how it gets on under the spotlight of our trial. It will be subjected to a three month trial as usual, so plenty of time to get a feel for the service.

Our trial will include looking at the results at Betfair SP and how obtainable the advised prices are.

So let’s hope the promising form continues and we get another winning horse racing tipster from the Betting Gods stable.

We will report back soon with the first results update.

In the meantime you can check out Max Racing tips here.

Bookie Blowout Full Review

 

Bookie Blowout is a betting system from Mike Cruickshank that provides horse racing selections in the evening to be backed with the bookies and then traded out the next morning on Betfair, hopefully for a profit.

Now you may well be wondering, having seen the results above, why we have given a neutral rating to a system that made 141 points profit over the course of a three month trial.

And certainly you would not be amiss for asking this question. 

The system is certainly accurate in predicting which selections will reduce in price, being correct over 60% of the time and producing a consistent weekly profit.

But in our view, for a system to achieve a recommended rating, it has to not only provide profit but be practical and sustainable in the long run as well.

And unfortunately we have concerns on both of these fronts with regard to Bookie Blowout, which we discuss further below.

 

Practicalities

Firstly in terms of the practicalities, this is not an easy system to follow. 

The selections are posted on the Bookie Blowout website in the evening before racing. 

The problem is that selections are posted over a long period of time – usually the course of a few hours – and you have to be at your computer for that period to make sure you get the advised odds.

The system is basically about exploiting situations where the bookies have higher odds for a horse than Betfair has, which can therefore be expected to reduce in price.

So the odds will be under pressure and often disappear very quickly.

That means you really have to be on the ball and back the selections as soon as they appear on the website.

So that is our first concern – whether most people will be able to devote between approximately 6 and 10.30 pm each evening to following the selections.

 

Sustainability 

Secondly we look at whether a betting system can work in the long term. 

We have significant question marks in this regard with Bookie Blowout. 

The bookies have software to identify what the Betfair market is doing and will be well aware if you are consistently taking their prices when they are above the Betfair prices.

So it will only be a matter of time before your accounts are limited or closed outright.

I was doing something very similar to this last year and had one of my accounts (that I had held for over 10 years) not just limited, but closed outright.

Another account was limited as well. I can tell you it is very frustrating when that happens.

The trouble is that not only would account closures affect your ability to follow this system, but it obviously affects all your other betting as well.

With the volume of betting you are doing with Bookie Blowout – at an average of 15 bets per day – you are going to alert the bookies pretty quickly to what you are doing.

The likes of Bet365 may let you do this for a while, but bookies like Stan James and Betfred will likely come down on you like a tonne of bricks.

So you may make a few hundred quid with Bookie Blowout to start off with, but we would question if you could keep doing so in the long term.

With the other products from Mike Cruickshank, you can quite happily do just a couple of offers per day and make a nice profit and the bookies won’t take too much notice, as long as you are throwing in some mug bets as well to balance things out.

But here, with 15 bets per day and so targeted around early prices, the risks of the bookies taking action are much greater. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

On the one hand it feels a bit harsh giving a system that makes 141 points profit a neutral rating.

On the other hand, the standard we always use in giving our verdicts on systems is whether you would recommend a system to a friend.

If we were in the pub and a friend asked us if they should buy Bookie Blowout, we would probably say to them – “You would probably make a good few hundred quid to start off with, but then you would have a big risk of the bookies closing your accounts. Plus you have to sit in front of your computer from 6 until around 10 most evenings.”

And then we would let them make up their own minds.

So that is what we will do here – give you the risk warnings and then let you make up your own mind on whether it is something for you.

Some people may be happy to accept the downsides and others not. In the words of Rick Nelson, it’s up to you…

Bookie Blowout – Results Update

10th January 2016

More positive results for Bookie Blowout, which has added another 39 points profit and is now 106 points up overall. 

You can view full results here.

As we said last time, we still have concerns over your accounts with the bookmakers being limited or closed if you use this system and you do need to be at your computer in the evening to get the selections, so it’s a case of buyer beware with this one. 

Back in a couple of weeks with our final review.

Bookie Blowout – Results Update

Things have continued in positive fashion for Bookie Blowout, which has added a further 52 points of profit to be +67 points up so far after six weeks of our trial.

Our comments remain the same as in our last update that you need to be at your computer in the evening to pick up the selections and you need to act quickly to get the prices.

We do still have concerns about potential bookie limitations, but in itself this system is working well.

Bookie Blowout – Results Update

7th December 2015

It has been a good start to our trial of Bookie Blowout, with 15 points of profit accrued to date.

You can view full results here.

This is an interesting product from Mike Cruickshank in that it is not about risk-free profits. Instead it is about predicting which horses will reduce in price from the evening before racing to the morning.

So you log in to the site in the evening and back the recommended horses with the bookies, then lay them in the morning on Betfair. This is pure trading, you will have traded out before the race starts so have no interest in the actual result.

So far the results have been good – trading with £10 stakes we are £152 up.

However, we do have some concerns about this service. Firstly, you have to be glued to your computer screen from about 6pm to 10pm each evening to see the selections being posted on the Bookie Blowout website. It is crucial to back the selections quickly because the prices tend to disappear quickly.

This has been made a little harder by the fact that Mike no longer sends e-mails out (as he was having delays with g-mail sending) so you now have to keep an eagle eye on the website to see selections posted rather than just waiting for e-mails to be sent.

So if you aren’t able to be at your computer in the evenings, this service probably isn’t for you. 

Secondly, we also worry about the impact on bookie accounts of continually taking early prices that are above Betfair prices – the bookies apparently have software that tells them when this is happening, so no doubt they will see the patterns in your betting and could hit you with account limits or closures.

Thirdly, when prices drift on Betfair to higher prices in the 30s and above, it can be difficult to get your stake matched. We are using £10 stakes for the trial which seems fine to get matched with, but if you are staking much higher you may find yourself having to take odds a bit higher than those shown on our results spreadsheet.

So those are our thoughts so far on Bookie Blowout. On the face of it, the results have been good but there are a few things to be mindful of when using this service.

Back soon with more updates.

Bookie Blowout – New Review

18th November 2015

Following on from our successful trials of Bonus Bagging and Profit Maximiser, we have another Mike Cruickshank product to try out here at Honest Betting Reviews.

This one is called Bookie Blowout and is slightly different to Mike’s other products.

Rather than focusing on free bets and risk-free profits, this is more of a trading system. There is risk involved as you can lose money – essentially it is about predicting horses that will reduce in price and trading them for profit.

So some of them may actually drift in price and you could lose out – although Mike claims that he is correct in his predictions 90% of the time. We will see if that is borne out during the trial.

Upon joining, you are provided with a 30-page PDF to read explaining how the system works. As ever with Mike’s products, there are also very helpful training videos and a calculator to work out the trades.

You are provided with e-mails in the evening telling you which horses to back and at what price.

Then the next morning you check back and lay off your bets on Betfair or your exchange of choice  – or you can wait until closer to race time if you are able to be at your computer later in the day.

So overall an interesting and imaginative approach to making profits – as we have come to expect from Mike Cruickshank. 

Whether it can deliver, well only time will tell, but we are hopeful. 

Check back here for updates on how the trial goes.

In the meantime, you can check out Bookie Blowout here.

Goal Profits Full Review

 

We have completed our trial of the much-heralded Goal Profits, a suite of systems for trading football matches on the exchanges such as Betfair.

We have to confess to being slightly underwhelmed at the results after three months of testing.

Following the trades of Steve (who runs the service) exactly for 3 months has yielded just 12 points profit over the course of 63 matches traded. 

So that would be nearly 100 hours of trading time to make 12 points profit, which at £10 per point doesn’t quite cover the subscription fees.

Now of course it wouldn’t quite have been 100 hours of trading because you would have been out of some matches before the 90-minute mark, but you get a good idea that lots of time needs to be invested here.

And for that amount of investment, we would like to have seen better results to make it worthwhile.

Here you can see the results for the trial in graph format – a good start followed by a long period of steady decline and then a big jump at the end.

Goal Profits Profit Graph

 

What do you get with Goal Profits?

As we said previously in our results update, there are essentially three different types of trading system included in the Goal Profits package:

  • Lay the Draw strategies
  • “Matrix” systems
  • Correct score strategies

In total you are given 28 potential strategies to trade with Goal Profits.

There are some bold claims made on the Goal Profits website that people trade these systems full-time for a living.

That may very well be true, but for us there needs to be much clearer direction given before we are convinced that anyone who joins can make such profits – or even just good profits.

We would expect there to be very clear instructions given for live trades. For example, an e-mail sent out prior to kick-off saying:

“Lay HT Draw in Liverpool v Chelsea at 2.4 for 1 point”

Then another e-mail after a goal saying:

“Trade out of Liverpool v Chelsea HT Draw market for 0.6 pts profit.”

If they did this across say at least half a dozen systems and these averaged a decent profit of around 5-6 points profit per month each, then we would be more convinced that following their systems can deliver a solid profit each month.

But as is, you can follow Steve’s trades in the forum for the most part and some of Kevin’s, but not the kind of clear, testable service outlined above we would like to see.

So the subscriber is left to test all these other systems for themselves and see what they can achieve.

For us there wasn’t anything in their 28 systems that jumped out as having a clear edge. And some of them are available elsewhere on line for free.

The “Lay the draw” system is well covered for free on the internet and we have our own strategy laid out here.

Plus we detail the “lay the draw at half time” strategy in our Football Betting Secrets manual which is available here.

So for us, whilst this made a profit over the trial, it wasn’t enough to merit a recommended rating and that is likely to remain the case for us unless they set up the kind of service we outlined above.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: This is a heavy workload service to say the least. You will have to dedicate a considerable amount of time to firstly learning the systems and how they work and then to trading them. 

Availability of prices: The prices Steve records for his systems are generally readily available. The correct score market is the main market you will trade following his methods and it has very good liquidity. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 33%, which is good and you shouldn’t have too many losing trades in a row here.

Advised Betting Bank: We used a 40 point bank for following Steve’s trades which we felt with a fairly good strike rate and 3.2 points risked per trade, would be comfortable and that proved the cae here. However, for each system that you trade you will need either a separate bank (recommended) or to increase the overall size of your bank if using one for all systems. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are £37 + VAT per month, which are a little on the high side and there is no introductory offer for people to try for a period (e.g. 1 week or 14 days). 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

Overall we can see that a lot of work has gone in to creating a suite of trading strategies here and the owners of the service, Steve and Kevin, are dedicated to their cause.

We would not deride any system that can turn a profit and Steve has managed to do that with his correct score trades, gaining 12 points over the course of our trial.

However, we feel that there is not enough here to give this a passed rating. 

There are 28 systems provided, but excluding the correct score systems, we could not see that the other systems would guarantee a profit over the long term.

If there was a more systematic approach to providing live trading advice for those systems and they proved profitable, we could well be persuaded to change our view on this.

But until then, this goes into the neutral list for us.

Goal Profits – Results Update

11th January 2016

It has taken a little longer than normal to get our first update done on Goal Profits and we apologise for that if you have been waiting for it.

This one has been trickier to review than most systems we trial here at Honest Betting Reviews as there is an awful lot of information to take in – including a number of manuals to read, lots of videos to watch and about 30 potential systems to trade!

So that is probably the first thing to warn you about – if you do sign up to Goal Profits, be prepared to devote quite a lot of time getting to grips with it.

What is Goal Profits actually all about then?

Well Goal Profits is a set of systems for trading football matches on the exchanges such as Betfair. There are essentially three different types of trading system included:

  • Lay the Draw strategies
  • “Matrix” systems
  • Correct score strategies

In terms of the lay the draw strategies, these are widely available for free online – in fact we have done our own guide to lay the draw for your perusal here! 

Looking at the Matrix systems, we had a look through each system but struggled to find anything that either wasn’t available for free elsewhere or had a clearly identifiable “edge” as such.  Why would they make you money? That is the question we always ask with a trading system. There wasn’t an obvious answer for us when looking at those systems.

So that leaves us with the correct score strategies. These are probably the mainstay of Goal Profits and what the service is really about.

There are different methods for trading the correct score markets outlined, but basically they all centre on hitting certain “target scores” where you make a profit if a game finishes in certain scores like 2-3, 3-2, 3-1, 2-2, etc but a loss if it finishes 0-0, 1-0 or 0-1.

We have recorded the results for the main “Batman and Robin” trades that Steve, who runs the service, uses for his own trading.

You can view full results here.

After two months of trading and 50 matches traded, we are 4 points up overall.

Given the amount of time invested in having to be at the computer for the duration of those 50 matches, 4 points seems like quite a low return.

Plus, those are the official results if you have traded just like Steve and got exactly the same results as him. We have not managed to get as good results as these, but have been learning and are getting closer now.

It does take a bit of getting used to and knowing what you should do in each situation when a goal is scored.

So in summary the verdict so far is that the jury is still out on Goal Profits. We have struggled to make a profit after two months and a huge amount of time invested – and even following Steve’s trades exactly you would only be 4 points up.

We have a month to go in the trial so will be interesting to see how things turn out and if we can extract some more profit from this. 

Will be back in a month with our final review.

Goal Profits – New Review

3rd November 2015

Today we are commencing a review of Goal Profits, a popular football trading product that focuses mainly on the correct score markets on Betfair. 

This is a sister product to Value Football Betting, a service we have reviewed and originally gave a passed rating to but downgraded to a neutral rating after a disappointing run of results.

There are some fairly bold claims made on the sales page of Goal Profits – such as that they can “turn beginners into full-time professionals” and that some of their members “now work part-time because their trading profits provide enough income.”

The guy who runs the service, Steve Brown, also claims that “my correct score trading strategies and exclusive Team Statistics software have changed the way football matches are researched and traded for profit.”

Well that is perhaps the boldest claim of all, because it is one thing to say people make a living out of trading systems and another thing to say you have changed way the market is traded, particularly with a massive worldwide website such as Betfair!

Their claims appear to be backed up by something though, as they have won a number of awards for being the best trading product in their field.

Goal Profits

So we are intrigued to find out what all the fuss is about and whether they can live up to their bold claims. At the end of the day, when you strip away all the hype and layers of theory and padding, any system ultimately comes down to results. 

A lot of trading systems we have come across rely on either unrealistic amounts needed to trade on markets without enough liquidity, are so ridiculously complicated that it would take a degree in trading to comprehend them, or rely on super-fast trading out.

Hopefully that won’t be the case here and trading strategies will be more sensible.

Anyway, the key question is can they produce consistent profits month-in month-out. Well our trial will endeavour to find out. 

In the meantime you can check out Goal Profits here.

Each Way King Full Review

 

We seem to have a bit of a theme at the moment – neutral reviews. 

We have another one here with the Each Way King. This one is at least a bit more straightforward than the previous two which fell slightly between two stools and were difficult to grade. 

But this has ended up just 3 points down after three months so there seems no other fair verdict than a neutral rating.

Things got off to a promising start as they went over 30 points up early on, but sadly those early gains were given away in a steady trend downwards, as you can see below:

Each Way King Profit Graph

It’s a nice easy service to follow with just two bets per day and betting each way means you have a higher strike rate so the losing runs are shorter.

For the time being though, this is one to watch and to see if results pick up over the longer term.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: There are just 2 bets per day on average and workload is minimal with this service – should only take a few minutes each day to place the bets.

Availability of prices: There was no issue with the availability of prices, although there was a small difference between the advised prices and Betfair SP (14 points over the course of the trial) so it may be best to take early prices to make the most of the service. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 28%, which is just very slightly below the long-term average of 29.5%. 

Advised Betting Bank: No bank was advised when we signed up so we used a 100 point bank, which was more than comfortable for the trial.   

Subscription costs: You can get a free 14 day trial – as with all Betting Gods services – followed by subscription costs of £24.95/per month; £59.95/quarter or £149.95 for life.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL  

It has been one of those slightly quiet trials for the Each Way King where not a great deal has happened to be honest.

Fortunes have fluctuated a little bit during the trial but in the end they finished 3 points down, so very close to breaking even.

It’s a nice easy service to follow and betting each way gives you shorter losing runs, which is always appreciated.

So after just about breaking even, the only reasonable verdict seems to be a neutral rating. We will keep an eye on the Each Way King for a while and see where the service ends up going.

Each Way King – Results Update

24th January 2016

It’s been a case of treading water really for the Each Way King since our last update, with just one point lost at advised prices and 4 points lost at Betfair SP.

That means for the trial overall they are 1 point up at advised prices and 12 points down at Betfair SP.

You can view full results here.

With just a couple of weeks left in the trial it will be interesting to see if they can push on and finish in profit.

Back with our final review soon.

Each Way King – Results Update

28th December 2015

There has been something of a reversal for the Each Way King since our last update just over a month ago.

They have dropped 25 points at advised prices and 26 points at Betfair SP over the last month.

That means they are just 2 points in profit at advised prices and 8 points down at Betfair SP for the trial as a whole.

You can view full results here.

Hopefully there will be an upturn for them as we head into the New Year. Back soon with more updates.

Each Way King – Results Update

21st November 2015

It has been a good start to our trial of Each Way King, who are 27 points up at advised prices and 18 points up at Betfair SP after three weeks of results.

You can view full results here.

This is a fairly easy service to follow, with just a couple of bets per day. 

We are noting a bit of a gap opening up already between advised prices and Betfair SP though, so this will be something to keep an eye on.

Anyway, a good start to the trial and let’s hope they continue in the same vein.

Each Way King – New Review

2nd November 2015

It would be fair to say that most tipsters like to bet “on the nose” as it were. It is about picking winners they would say. To be fair there is a certain attraction about the simplicity of that approach.

However, on the other side you have those who would argue that backing each-way allows you to profit when your horses run well but don’t quite get the job done, whether it be due to bad luck, ill-suiting conditions or just not quite being good enough on the day.

Another advantage to backing each-way is that it enables you to build a bank more steadily, with a higher strike rate and shorter losing runs.

Anyway, whichever approach you prefer, sitting squarely on the latter side of the argument is a new service we are trialing, Each Way King from the Betting Gods stable. 

Well so far the each-way style certainly seems to be working for them, with over 170 points profit accumulated since the service started in June.

That has been achieved with a 30% strike rate and 35% return on investment, which is excellent going.

Staking is nice and simple at between 0.5 and 1 points each way on each selection, so no crazy staking system to inflate results.

There are generally around 2 bets per day, so it should be fairly manageable in terms of workload. 

We will run our normal three month trial and see if this can deliver us some royal profits. 

In the meantime, you can check out Each Way King here.
