Rugby Trading Webinars – Full Review

 

We have been following the Rugby Trading Webinars provided by pro rugby trader Phil since last November’s Autumn Internationals so we thought it was time to wrap up our review. Plus the service has been put on hold for the moment – but more on that below. 

Basically the webinars show you live screen shots of the bookies’ websites and Phil gives out live bets to be placed at the bookies and explains the reasoning behind them as the game unfolds.

The strategy works very well in and of itself and produced an excellent profit of 136 points during our trial. In addition, Phil’s pre-match and pre-tournament tips for the Six Nations made 26 points profit, which was a nice bonus.

However, in terms of practicality there were some issues with following the live webinars and we know from the feedback we received that some of you found the service difficult to follow. 

In the first instance it does require bookie accounts – in particular Bet365 and Betfair Sportsbook, with William Hill and Coral also helpful but not essential. 

And secondly the speed with which the trades need to be executed made it very difficult in some instances to get the advised bets on.

We found that even with the best will in the world we weren’t able to get some of the advised trades on in time, which inevitably meant getting a different result to the official one. 

Over the long-term the missed trades should even themselves out, with the odd winning one you miss being cancelled out by the odd losing one you miss, but at the same time in an ideal world you should be able to match all the trades a service advises. 

These issues with practicality were reflected in the fact that by the end of the Six Nations only a handful of people were still joining the webinars. This has led the team behind the webinars to reconsider whether the service is viable in the long run. 

They are looking at the potential of trading via Betfair – possibly using automated software – so if that works it could be a very positive development. 

For the time being though it looks like the service will be put on hold. 

So in summary whilst we award this a PASSED rating given the results achieved and Phil’s undoubted skills as a trader, it is a question of waiting to see how and if this service is taken forward in future. 

We will update any further news on that here.

Rugby Trading Webinars – Results Update

14th February 2019

The Rugby Trading Webinars continue to deliver superb profits, with another 68 points profit made since our last update a month ago. 

That means the webinars have now made 149 points profit for our trial overall.

You can view full results here.

In addition to the live trading webinars, head trader Phil has also been providing betting tips for the Six Nations. Those tips have made 21 points profit so far (you can see the results in the second tab of our results spreadsheet). 

And his outright tips for the tournament are also looking very good, particularly England to win the Six Nations and to be the top try-scorers, so it appears more profits are coming from those as well.

All in all they are well on their way to smashing through the 100 points profit target for the Six Nations.

And the good news is you can still get a £1 trial for the Six Nations so you don’t keep missing all this profit. There are two packages available, so even if you aren’t able to join the live webinars you can still get the betting tips. 

You can check out the £1 trial for the Six Nations here.

Rugby Trading Webinars – £1 Trial Offer

1st February 2019

We mentioned earlier in the week about the Six Nations Package where they are targeting 100 points profit on the tournament.

We’re pleased to say they are now offering a special trial for just £1, so you can “try before you buy” the full package. They are also now offering their full tournament guide for FREE.

And remember if you haven’t made a profit by the end of the tournament, they will refund your money in full.

The action kicks off tonight with the first live webinar, France v Wales at 7.45pm, so don’t miss out.

You can check out the £1 trial for the Six Nations here. 

 

 

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Just a quick shout-out that the Rugby Trading Service is now launching a Six Nations Special where they are targeting 100 points profit for the tournament – which would be £1,000 profit to just £10 stakes. 

Given they have made 98 points profit in just 10 webinars whilst we have been following them, this seems very achievable. 

They are even offering a money back guarantee whereby if they don’t make a profit during the tournament they will refund your subscription in full. 

There are two packages available for the Six Nations, one that includes all of the following for £120 (spread out over two payments of £60):- 

  • – Full Tournament Guide
  • – 10 LIVE Trading Webinars
  • – Tipping Service
  • – Individual Team Reviews
  • – Predicted Finishing Positions 
  • – Weekly Match Previews and Predictions
  • – Trading Strategy Overview
  • – Members Support Chat Room
  • – FAQ & Betting Guide

And one that includes the Tournament Guide, match previews and tipping service for £60.

As we have said in the review below, we think this is one of the best trading services we have come across in some time and the strategy behind it is very clever. 

Also a reminder that you will need bookie accounts to operate the trading strategy – in particular Bet 365 and Betfair Sportsbook (Coral and William Hill also helpful) – this does NOT work on the exchanges. 

So if you would like to make some profit from the Six Nations then don’t miss this – places for the trading webinars will be limited.

You can check out the Six Nations Package in full here.

Rugby Trading Webinars – Results Update

16th January 2019

The profits have continued to roll in for the Rugby Trading Webinars we have been following with professional trader Phil, with another 59 points profit made since our last update. 

That means they are now 81 points up for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

As mentioned previously, you will need bookie accounts to follow the trades as the strategy does not work on Betfair due to liquidity issues and some of the markets not being available. In particular you will need Bet365 and Betfair Sportsbook for the majority of the bets, with Coral and William Hill being used occasionally too. 

The trading schedule has been low volume so far, with nearly a month break for Christmas, but should be ramping up now with the Six Nations coming up. 

The service is currently by invite only as they do not have a website, so if you are interested in following the webinars then please send us an e-mail at info@honestbettingreviews.com

Rugby Trading Webinars – Results Update

30th November 2018

It has been a good start to our trial of the Rugby Trading Webinars, with a profit of 22 points made after one month. 

You can view full results here.

This is a new innovation – for us anyway – whereby you can follow along with a professional trader on a live webinar and copy his advised trades.

It is a fast and furious style of trading and you need your finger on the button to execute trades quickly, but we can see from the webinars we have viewed that the strategy he uses is effective and it has made a decent profit so far. 

The trading schedule has been quite light recently due to the Autumn Internationals but is expected to pick up now that we are returning to domestic action. 

The next webinar is this evening at 19.30 (UK time) featuring Harlequins vs Exeter, so please send us an e-mail at info@honestbettingreviews.com if you would like to join this webinar – or be added to the list for future ones. 

It is by invite only on a first-come-first-served basis and places are filling up fast, so don’t miss out if you want to see how a professional trader operates.

Rugby Trading Webinars – New Review

14th November 2018

It is amazing how these things go – just a few days ago we were starting our first ever review of a rugby betting service and commenting how surprising it was that there aren’t more around.

Well wouldn’t you know it – here we are with another one just a few days later!

Yes today we are starting our second-ever review of a rugby service, but this one is a little different.

It is a trading service and comes from a guy called Phil who is a professional rugby trader and has done very well over the years, apparently making a significant amount of money trading on the game. 

The service is provided by way of webinars, whereby you watch Phil’s screen and listen to his analysis and place the trades he recommends as the game unfolds.

We have already listened in on three of the webinars and have been very impressed. 

When you have looked at hundreds of betting and trading systems over the years as we have, you can judge pretty quickly if something is genuine and can actually make money or is just a fly-by-night scheme. 

And we can tell that this one is the real deal. Phil’s knowledge of rugby really is very in-depth and he has an excellent reading of the game. 

Of the three webinars we’ve seen, Phil has been very close to landing some big profits and has been very unlucky with some last minute decisions going the wrong way – many people would say unfairly!

We could see this one being a long-term winner though and delivering substantial profit over time. The way Phil offsets different handicaps against one another is a very clever strategy and you can see during the webinars how effective it can be.

So having taken an initial look at the service and having been impressed, we decided to do a full review here and record all our live trading results from the webinars.

In the meantime though if you are interested in seeing it for yourself, the good news is that they are offering the next webinar completely free so you can test it out for yourself and see Phil in action.

Here are the details of the webinar:

  • – Match: Scotland vs South Africa
  • – Webinar Date/Time: 17 Nov, 2018 @ 17:05 GMT 

This is strictly by invitation only and spots are expected to fill up quickly, but we have managed to secure access on a first-come first-served basis for Honest Betting Reviews visitors. 

So if you would like to join the webinar, please just drop us an e-mail at info@honestbettingreviews.com expressing your interest and we will send you the details of the webinar. 

One thing to note is that you do need bookie accounts to be able to follow Phil’s trades, so having one or more of the following is essential really:

  • – Bet 365
  • – Coral
  • – Betfair Sportsbook
  • – William Hill

With Bet 365 being the main one. 

It should be a good game and you will get to trade alongside a professional trader like Phil which is an informative experience in itself, so please get in touch if you are interested. 

Hope to see you there on Saturday!

Ron Williams Racing – Full Review

 

Ron Williams Racing is a tipster service that has been running since July 2017 and we have just completed a six month trial of it. 

Ron has built quite a following on Twitter and it is easy to see why with some very strong results reported on his website.

For once we are pleased to say that the results during our trial lived up to the pre-trial ones and an excellent 108 points profit was made to advised prices.

That was achieved with a decent strike rate of 33% and a more-than-respectable ROI of 18%, all adding up to a more than doubling of the bank over the course of six months. 

The Betfair SP results also held up well in comparison to the results at advised prices, with a profit of 69 points made, so it looks like the service is practical to follow for those with their bookie accounts restricted.  

The profit was pretty steady throughout the trial, as you can see from the graph below:-

In addition to the commendable results, what we like about Ron Williams Racing is the no-nonsense approach to tipping. 

There is no big annoying marketing rubbish that you get with a lot of betting websites these days, no big sales pitch, no complicated staking system, just good honest tipping. Bets are sent through each evening with the advised odds and staking and that’s it – just nice and simple. 

So all in all there’s a lot to like about Ron Williams Racing and we have no hesitation in awarding this a PASSED rating. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Good – tips are sent out the evening before racing, usually around 7-9pm (UK time) and with an average of 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 the Betfair SP results held up well, with just under 70 points profit made. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 33% (including placed horses), which is good and kept the bank moving along nicely. 

Advised Betting Bank: There is no betting bank advised for following the service but we used a 100-point bank for the purposes of this review and that seems like a comfortable size to use for following the service.   

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are pretty reasonable at £1 for the first 14 days then £37 per month (both +VAT).

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

We have completed our six-month trial of Ron Williams Racing and it finished with an excellent 108 points profit at advised prices and 69 points profit at Betfair SP.

With a good strike rate of 33% and the betting bank more than doubling over the course of our trial, this receives a definite PASSED rating from us. 

We like the no-nonsense approach, just good honest tipping with no fanfare or hype. There’s a lot to be said for that.

Ron Williams Racing – Results Update

13th February 2019

Ron Williams Racing continues to smash it, bringing home another 54 points profit at advised prices since our last update a month ago. 

That puts him 109 points up for our trial overall at advised prices. 

You can view full results here.

Although results at Betfair SP aren’t quite as good as those at advised prices, they are still holding up well with another 40 points profit made since our last update and 71 points profit made for our trial overall. 

It’s good to see a tipster living up to their pre-trial billing and producing such strong results as it doesn’t happen very often. This is a no-nonsense service with just high quality tips, no hype or fanfare and there’s a lot to be said for that.

Back soon with more updates.

Ron Williams Racing – Results Update

8th December 2018

There’s been a slight decline for Ron Williams Racing since our last update at the end of October, with a loss of 14 points at advised prices in that time.

But the good news is that he is still up for our trial overall, with a profit of 46 points made so far at advised prices. 

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP it’s a similar picture, with 13 points lost since our last update and 35 points profit made for our trial overall. 

Hopefully Ron can get things back on track and we’ll have profits to report again in our next update.

Things moving along very nicely here then and it looks like we have uncovered another gem in the form of Ron Williams Racing. Let’s hope he can keep it going.

It’s been a good start to our trial of horse racing tipster Ron Williams Racing, with 28 points profit made so far at advised prices after one month. 

You can view full results here. 

At Betfair SP things are progressing well too, with 33 points profit made so far.

Tips are normally sent out the evening before racing, so plenty of time to get the bets on.

Good to see this one off to a promising start and is looking like a top tipster from what we have seen so far.

Ron Williams Racing – New Review

1st September 2018

Today we are starting a new trial of a horse racing tipster called Ron Williams Racing. 

Whilst a lot of the reviews we do these days are from tipster platforms and established betting websites, this one is a stand-alone tipster.

It is quite refreshing in a way to focus on “the little guy” as it were – although perhaps in this instance that isn’t the right way to describe this service.

That’s because Ron already has a huge following on Twitter and has made quite a name for himself.

Just check out some of the tweets from his followers:

“Oh my man!!!! Get in you beauty!!”

“Awesome Ron. Boom.”

“BOOOOOM. Amazing month Ron. Superb tipping. Roll on September.”

“There was me watching lord of the rings, seeing Gandalf, and thinking wizards weren’t real! Ronny, you are pure magic!”

And so on.

From looking at his results you can see why Ron has built up such a delighted bunch of followers, with a profit of £3,422 made since starting up last July to just £20 bets.

That has been made with a return on investment of 22%, which is very decent going. 

There tend to be around 2 bets per day so a manageable workload and the odds tend to be below 10/1, with a fair number of favourites being backed. 

Ron shows an impressive level of consistency too with 10 out of 11 months having been profitable so far.

There is a 14-day trial available for just £1+VAT, then the monthly subscription fee is £37/month.

So all in all this looks like a promising service and we are looking forward to seeing how it gets on in a live trial, which we will kick off straight away. 

In fact we started receiving tips on 30th August so we will record results from then. 

Anyway, please check back here for regular results updates on how the trial is going.

In the meantime you can check out Ron Williams Racing here.

Profit/Loss:  +28 points
Strike Rate:  52%
Bank Growth:  37%
ROI:  10%
Average number of bets:  1-2 per day
Cost:  £97+VAT

Tennis Goldmine – Full Review

 

Tennis Goldmine is a betting system from renowned tennis expert Patrick Ross.

It is a system where you find the selections yourself each day according to a set of rules. It involves laying players and uses a Fibonacci staking system, which is a kind of loss-recovery system with a staking sequence of placing 1-1-2-3-5-8-13-21-34 points per bet until you win, then you revert back to the beginning again.

You can of course use level staking if you like, although we used the recommended Fibonacci staking for the purposes of the review.

The criteria for selections is very simple and it should only take you a few minutes each day to find the selections and place the lay bets. 

We followed the system for around six months, although there was a break of around a month between the end of the previous tennis season and the start of the new one. 

We are pleased to report that the system performed well during our trial, delivering 28 points profit to the advised staking. 

The strike rate was good at 52% and the return on investment a respectable 10%. 

Using the Fibonacci staking can be quite a roller-coaster ride however and at one point we had a 7-bet losing streak and had to stake 13 points on the next selection – which thankfully won. 

You can see that roller-coaster ride portrayed in the profit graph for the trial below:-

So having a big enough bank to withstand a potential 10-bet losing streak or two is crucial. 

Of course if you’re of a more cautious temperament then you may wish to back at level stakes and on that basis the system also made a good profit of 15 points.

So whichever way you approach it the system performed well during our trial and we award Tennis Goldmine a PASSED rating. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use:  As stated above you need to find the selections yourself but the rules are very simple so it should only take a few minutes per day to place the bets. 

Availability of prices: Not an issue as there aren’t any “tips” as such and you place all bets at Betfair (or your exchange of choice). 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 52%, so a good proportion of bets were winners. 

Advised Betting Bank: A 150 point bank is advised for following the service if you are using the Fibonacci staking, which seems somewhat on the low side to us. A full 10-bet losing run would set you back approximately 70 points so we think the bank should allow for at least two such occurrences and be 150-200 points. If you are using level staking then a 50-100 point bank should be sufficient.  

Subscription costs: The cost of the service is very reasonable at a one-off payment of £97+VAT, which now comes with Patrick’s betting and trading tips aswell. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Tennis Goldmine is a simple betting system you can use on Betfair. It performed very well during our trial, making 28 points profit using the advised loss-recovery staking or 15 points using level staking. 

In some ways the system is so simple we are surprised it has worked so well but at the end of the day you can’t argue with the results and we are therefore pleased to award it a PASSED rating.

The recent addition of using Patrick’s tips (which come free when you buy the system) to streamline selections down should help the profitability further and means you are getting excellent value with the Tennis Goldmine package.

Tennis Goldmine – Results Update

17th January 2019

Not much change for Tennis Goldmine since our last update, with just one point of profit added. 

That means we are now 18 points up for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

Now when you purchase Tennis Goldmine you also get Patrick’s betting and trading tips included aswell at no extra cost, which have both shown good long-term profits. 

When one of the daily tips clashes with a possible lay bet on Goldmine, you don’t place the lay bet on Goldmine. Patrick has back tested it and says it will reduce losing streaks and increase overall profit.

That seems like a sensible addition to us and now makes the Tennis Goldmine very attractive when you consider everything that’s included. 

 

 

 

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

Tennis Goldmine – Results Update

29th October 2018

Overall it’s been a good run lately for Tennis Goldmine, with a further 4 points profit made since our last update a month ago.

That means we are now 17 points up for our trial overall.

You can view full results here.

However, it’s been quite a rollercoaster ride, as at one point we had a losing run of six bets, which meant by the seventh bet we were staking 13 points. 

Thankfully that bet won, but it shows that with the Fibonacci staking system this method uses things can get a bit hairy at times.

So you need to make sure you have a plentiful bank and a solid nerve to see out the losing runs. It’s crucial that you don’t over-stake and risk blowing out your betting funds if you do hit the dreaded losing run of nine in a row. A 155 point bank is recommended with the system but we would say a 200 point bank or higher could be used to be on the safe side. 

Just a quick word on staking – we had originally been using a 2 point system but it was causing some confusion so we have reverted to using 1 point system. So with the Fibonacci staking the system uses, that’s a staking sequence of  1-1-2-3-5-8-13-21-34 points per bet until you win, then you revert back to the beginning again.

Anyway, overall we are well ahead for the trial so that is good to see.

Tennis Goldmine – Results Update

26th September 2018

It’s been a very good start to our trial of Tennis Goldmine, a betting system from tennis expert Patrick Ross.

So far after one month we are 13 points up. 

You can view full results here.

This is a system where you find the selections yourself from pre-defined rules, so everyone’s results will differ somewhat depending on what time they go on Betfair and so on.

We have had to limit the information on our results spreadsheet so that we don’t give away the system, but you can see the important info such as profit and loss and the running total.

It’s a very simple system to operate, just a couple of minutes per day and so far has been moving along rather serenely, which is good.

Hopefully we’ll have more of the same going forward.

Tennis Goldmine – New Review

5th September 2018

We’ve remarked here before about the lack of good tennis tipsters and betting systems out there, with only one or two having made the grade here at Honest Betting Reviews over the years. 

Well today we have something that we think could join that exclusive list and it is called Tennis Goldmine.

It comes from Patrick Ross, the man behind one of the successful tennis systems we have reviewed here, Spartan Trading Tips.

Patrick is a renowned tennis trader and bettor, having run the respected Tennis Trading League website for a number of years.

So when we were contacted by Patrick to test out his new system we were certainly keen to do so.

Tennis Goldmine is a betting system with pre-defined rules where you find the selections yourself each day on Betfair (or your betting exchange of choice).

Without giving too much away, it involves laying players (i.e. betting on them to lose).

The results we have seen so far look very impressive, with over 75 points profit made in just over three months.

It’s very simple to operate and only takes a few minutes per day to find the selections. It’s “set and forget” so once you have placed the lays, that is it you can just leave it and come back and check the results later.

We plan on conducting a standard three month trial of Tennis Goldmine to get a good sense of how will it works. We have actually been testing it since 19th August and things have been progressing serenely since then, which is encouraging.

But obviously will need to see a bigger body of results before we can make any judgements, so please check back here for updates on how the trial is going.

In the meantime you can check out Tennis Goldmine here.

Top 20 Golf Tips – Full Review

 

Top 20 Golf Tips is a tipster from the Betting Gods platform and they bet solely on players to finish in the top 20 of a tournament. 

It is a novel approach and not one we have seen before when it comes to golf betting. On the face of it you would think it would be easy to predict players who will finish in the top 20, but of course there is no value in backing players like Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose in that market because the odds will be so short. 

No, what this service does is pick big outsiders who the market thinks are long shots to even finish in the top 20, with the average odds of picks being 10/1.

We ran an extended 12 month review of this service to get a really clear picture of its edge over the market as the results coming into our trial looked very impressive.

The good news is that the results held up very well during our trial, with a profit of 138 points made over the 12 month period. 

After going into deficit early on, they recovered well to finish the trial well in the red.

The profit was achieved with a solid return on investment of 11% and the strike rate was 13%.

However, we did notice some issues with regard to the practicality of following the service – particularly with regard to the availability of prices. 

Firstly, the liquidity on Betfair for the top 20 market tends to be very poor so in reality you will need bookie accounts to follow the tips.

In particular you will need:

  • – Bet 365
  • – Unibet
  • – 10Bet
  • – Paddy Power/Betfair Sportsbook
  • – William Hill

And then even with those accounts, as this is a niche market prices tend to move very quickly so you will need to act fast after tips are sent out. For example with today’s tips, after just over an hour since the tips were sent out, 5 out of the 34 tips have prices that are no longer available. 

So you will need to be aware of these issues if you are considering signing up. 

Overall though we feel Top 20 Golf Tips deserves a PASSED rating based on the decent profits it has made over the last year, but with the caveat that you will need certain bookie accounts to follow it and will need to act fast after tips are sent out. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use:  There are an average of 25 bets per week, which overall isn’t too bad but with this service they all come in one or two e-mails so it’s a case of placing a lot of bets in one go and then having the rest of the week without needing to do anything. Bets are normally sent on Tuesdays and Wednesdays around 10-12 in the morning. 

Availability of prices: As discussed above, you will need certain bookie accounts and to act fast to secure the advised prices. Using Betfair is not realistically an option. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 13%, so a certain amount of patience will be required when following the service. 

Advised Betting Bank: A 150 point bank is advised for following the service, which should be sufficient although there have been 80 point drawdowns in the past (including one during our trial), so a 200 point bank might be more advisable to be on the safe side. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are reasonable at £1 for the first 7 days then £29/month or £279/year.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

We ran an extended 12 month trial of Top 20 Golf Tips and the service performed very well over that period with 138 points profit made to 1 point level stakes. 

We always focus on long-term results rather than short-term ups and downs so this service proved its edge over the market in the course of a full year. On that basis we are happy to award it a PASSED rating.

However, that does come with a caveat that you will need access to the bookie accounts listed above and will need to act fast after tips are sent out to match the advised prices. If you are not able to do these two things then it will probably not be practical for you to follow the service. 

 

 

 

 

 


Top 20 Golf Tips – Results Update

20th January 2019

A loss of 35 points for Top 20 Golf Tips since our last update back in December, which continues a losing run over the last few months unfortunately. 

However, they are still well up for our trial overall, with 112 points profit made to date. 

You can view full results here.

We have nearly reached the end of our extended 12-month trial here so will be wrapping this one up shortly – hopefully with a bit of a surge of profit at the end.

Top 20 Golf Tips – Results Update

5th December 2018

There’s been a slight dip for Top 20 Golf Tips since our last update, with a loss of 12 points over the last month. 

They are still well up for the trial overall though, with a profit of 147 points made so far. 

You can view full results here.

We have now been following the service for nearly a year and have been very impressed with the profitability and consistency delivered in that time. 

Let’s hope that continues for the remainder of our trial and we can award this a firm passed rating at the end of our review.

Top 20 Golf Tips – Results Update

27th October 2018

Top 20 Golf Tips continues to consistently deliver the profits, with another 21 points profit made since our last update a month ago.

That means they are now 159 points up for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

We have been impressed with this service having followed it for nearly 10 months now. It is almost certainly heading for the Winning Systems list. 

Yes there a lot of bets to place in one go but it is only once a week, so you just have to put aside some time – maybe half an hour or so – to place the bets each week and then you are done. 

It doesn’t seem like much work to us for a service that is churning out the profits as consistently as this one.

Top 20 Golf Tips – Results Update

23rd September 2018

More steady profits for Top 20 Golf Tips since our last update, which is becoming a theme for them.

They have made another 17 points profit over the last month or so, taking them to 138 points profit for the trial overall and it has been fairly serene progress lately. 

You can view full results here.

This is a service where you do need bookie accounts to be able to use properly, as the exchanges don’t tend to offer Top 20 finish markets on the golf. 

As long as you have some bookie accounts available to you though and some time each week to place the bets, this is looking like a top service.

Top 20 Golf Tips – Results Update

27th July 2018

A small improvement for Top 20 Golf Tips since our last update, with one point of profit added over the last three weeks. 

That means they are now 121 points up for the trial overall.

You can view full results here.

As we mentioned previously, it is quite a high volume service, although all the selections come in one go so you need to allocate a good half hour to an hour to place the bets once a week. 

After you have done that though you can just sit back and watch how all the tips get on in that week’s tournaments – which recently has been very well. Let’s hope that continues.

Recent successful selections include Parker McLachlin at the John Deere Classic at 33/1, Trevor Immelman at the Scottish Open at 25/1 and a whole host of winners at around the 10/1 mark.

We are now starting to see the kind of form shown coming into our trial and why this service has been held in such high regard. Let’s hope that continues over the long term.

As we have mentioned previously, this is a high volume service with a large number of bets each week, so be prepared to spend quite a bit of time placing the selections once you receive the weekly e-mail.

Some big golf events coming up soon with the Open Championship, Scottish Open and USPGA in the next few weeks, so hopefully a chance to net some profits.

Top 20 Golf Tips – Results Update

24th May 2018

There has been a small dip for Top 20 Golf Tips since our last update a few weeks ago, with 8 points lost in that time.

Overall though they are still well ahead for our trial, sitting 43 points up.

You can view full results here.

They had a whopping 26 bets on the AT&T Byron Nelson last week, but unfortunately only Brian Gay and Kevin Tway came in for them, both at 6/1.

Still, overall things have been going well so can’t have too many complaints.

Top 20 Golf Tips has continued its impressive turnaround, adding another 39 points profit since our last update.

That puts them 51 points up for the trial overall.

They had a nice 20/1 success with Joel Dahman at the Wells Fargo Championship, solidly building on some previous successes over the last few weeks.

It should be a good time for golf betting now with the Players Championship this week and the US Open just over a month away, so hopefully the good recent form will continue through those events.

Top 20 Golf Tips – Results Update

18th April 2018

Top 20 Golf Tips has made an impressive comeback after a very tough start to our trial.

Since our last update they have made 64 points profit, which means they are now 12 points up for the trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

It has been quite an effort to have come back from 80 points down at one stage to profitability now.

They have landed some impressive top 20s including Rak Cho at 33/1 at the Open de Espana and Jonas Blixt at 18/1 at the RBC Heritage.  

It is kind of crazy to think that some players are priced at 33/1 just to make the Top 20, so we are talking about some massive outsiders here.

Anyway, hopefully we have turned the corner now and will start to see some consistency to the results going forward.

Top 20 Golf Tips – Results Update

23rd March 2018

There has been something of an improvement for Top 20 Golf Tips since our last update, with 19 points profit made in that time.

Although unfortunately after making such a bad start to the trial, that means we are still 52 points down overall.

You can view full results here.

Generally speaking we have found that the advised prices are fairly obtainable. Some will have shortened when you go to place the bets but others will have lengthened, so overall it has tended to balance itself out.

Let’s hope the recent turnaround continues and we will have clawed back more of those early losses by the time of our next update.

Top 20 Golf Tips – Results Update

28th February 2018

It’s been a disappointing start to our trial of Top 20 Golf Tips, which is 71 points down after one month.

You can view full results here.

This is looking like being the worst month they have had since the service started two years ago. Call it sod’s law or what you will, but either way it has been a tough run.

It’s an unusual service to follow in that there are a lot of bets to place in one go – about 35 normally, which all come through on a Wednesday evening. So you need to devote a good half an hour to 45 minutes to placing those bets. But then once they are placed, that’s it for the week. 

Anyway, even though it’s been a bad start there is still plenty of time left in the trial so let’s hope they can turn things around.

Top 20 Golf Tips – New Review

30th January 2018

Today we are going to take a look at a golf tipster with a bit of a twist.

Whilst the vast majority of golf tipsters bet on the winner of the tournament, this one backs only in the top 20 market. Hence the name Top 20 Golf Tips.

There is quite a sensible logic to backing in the top 20 market. Anyone who has bet on golf will know how tough it can be to pick the winner of a tournament. Or how agonising it can be to have your player be up in the lead virtually the whole tournament and then have a bit of bad luck or have a putt just lip out at the end to miss out on the win.

So by backing for a player to finish in the top 20, you are giving yourself quite a lot of leeway for the player to get themselves inside that bracket.

That is the logic anyway, but more important is whether the tipster has made it work in practice.

Well judging by the results on the Betting Gods website, they have done – and how!

The results are quite astounding. With over 1,000 points profit made since February 2016, it has one of the highest points totals on the Betting Gods platform.

And that has been achieved with a return on investment of 56%, an awesome level to have sustained over the course of two years.

But what impresses us most is the consistency. Just check out this profit graph:

Top 20 Golf Tips Profit Graph

As you can see, it is one of the smoothest profit graphs you could possibly ask to see. Just nice steady profit month after month.

In fact, 21 out of the 23 months so far have been profitable. That is the kind of consistency most tipsters can only dream of.

It is quite a high volume service, with 80 to 100 bets per month, so there will be quite a bit of work to do on a Wednesday evening when bets are sent out.

And we will have to see how obtainable the prices are.

But certainly based on the results achieved to date we are very much looking forward to this trial and seeing whether they can be replicated in the long run.

As usual progress will be updated here regularly.

In the meantime you can check out Top 20 Golf Tips here.

Draw Profits – Full Review

 

Draw Profits is a football betting service from the man behind the popular Banker Bets service, John Baker. 

As the name suggests, Draw Profits bets solely on the draw in football matches. It is a reworked version of Draw Doubles, which we reviewed previously. Whereas Draw Doubles included doubles and single bets, Draw Profits advises just single bets. 

As we have said previously here at HBR, there is evidence to suggest value can be found in backing the draw in football, primarily because not many people bet on it so the price is often higher than it should be as this Guardian article details. 

That has proved to be the case during for Draw Doubles at least, with a healthy profit of 18 points being made over the course of our six month trial. That came at an ROI of around 3% and a strike rate of 32%

Results fluctuated around a bit as you can see below, but they were in profit for pretty much the whole trial and had a nice surge towards the end. 

However, the raw numbers don’t tell the whole story as prices are quoted to the average odds, not the best available odds. So by shopping around using a site like Oddschecker and the exchanges, it is normally possible to beat the quoted odds. In our experience it was possible to beat the quoted odds by around 10-20% on average, which would make a big difference to your profits. 

So really we think this service is worthy of considerable praise for underselling what it has achieved, a pretty rare feat in the world of tipping! Most of the time we complain that services are guilty of quoting prices that are difficult to obtain (or in some cases unobtainable), so it is a refreshing change indeed.

Overall then we are happy to award Draw Profits a PASSED rating after a successful six month trial and its rather understated achievements. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use:  There are an average of 3 bets per day, so a fairly straightforward service to follow.  It shouldn’t take too long to place the bets and the selections are sent out well before kick-off, usually early in the morning. 

Availability of prices: As discussed above, you should be able to actually beat the published results by using best prices and exchanges, which is pretty awesome. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 32%, which is decent when backing draws and shows an edge over the market. 

Advised Betting Bank: A 50 point bank is advised for following the singles, which we think is a sensible bank and was never in jeopardy during our trial. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are reasonable at £6.95 for the first month then £27 per month, £65 per quarter or £207 per year.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

We have been following John Baker’s football betting services since we started this website four years ago and have always been impressed with the results they generate. 

Draw Profits is no exception, having made a very respectable 18 points profit during our extended six month trial. 

However, that slightly undersells the service’s record as that is using average odds, whereas with a bit of effort you should be able to easily beat the quoted prices by 10-20% and achieve even better results. 

It’s a simple service to follow and with affordable subscription rates we believe Draw Profits certainly merits a PASSED rating. We will continue to monitor it and see if the strong results achieved to date are maintained in the long run.

Draw Profits – Results Update

22nd November 2018

It’s been a bit of a tough time for Draw Profits since our last update just over a month ago, with a loss of 8 points in that time.

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

You can view full results here.

Just a reminder this is a service that this is a service that focuses on backing the draw in football matches across various leagues around the world. It comes from the same team behind Banker Bets and Value Bets. 

The results over the Christmas period were a little crazy, so lets hope in the New Year things settle down and they can get back on  track.

You can view full results here.

As we have said before, these results are also just to average prices so you could easily do better by shopping around for the best odds.

Let’s hope they have got things back on track and started making profits again by the time of our next update.

Draw Profits has been on excellent form lately, racking up 14 points profit since our last update a month ago.

That means they are now 21 points up for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

As we mentioned previously, it is actually possible to beat the advised prices because they quote at the generally available price so if you shop around using a site like oddschecker and use the exchanges then you can often get better odds than those given for the selections.

We are now just over half way through our six month trial and if things continue in this vein then this looks like it will join the list of our top footy tipsters.

There are quite a variety of leagues used with this service, including quite a lot from South America (where there tend to be a high number of draws) as well as across the European leagues.

It’s very simple to follow – just back the draw in the relevant match and you are done. Doesn’t get much more straightforward than that.

Draw Profits – Results Update

14th August 2018

It’s been a good start to our trial of Draw Profits, the football betting service that bets solely on the draw in football matches. 

So far it is 6 points up at advised prices after just over a month of following the tips.

You can view full results here.

Interestingly when sending the tips they provide the average odds available for the draw rather than the best odds, which is quite unusual for a tipping service. Normally tipsters want their results to be the best they could be so quote the best odds available at the time of the tips.

However, by quoting the average odds that means you could actually beat the official results and so we have also been recording the best odds available. The best odds have produced an extra 2 points of profit, meaning they are 8 points up for our trial so far to best odds. 

That doesn’t even include Betfair and the other exchanges, so you may have been able to do even better by using those.

Anyway, whichever odds you are using it has been a good start to our trial and now with the footy season getting going in earnest there should be plenty of action to get involved in.

Draw Profits – New Review

26th July 2018

Well the World Cup has only recently ended but the start of the new football season is just a couple of weeks away. 

It does seem a bit strange to be thinking of the football season when most of us are basking in roasting-hot temperatures, but before we know it we will be enjoying the cut and thrust of the Premier League, Champions League and top European leagues once again.

So it’s a good time to be kicking off a new football trial in the form of a system called Draw Profits, although in some ways this isn’t actually a new trial at all.

No, it is actually a re-working of a previous system we reviewed, Draw Doubles.

The problem with Draw Doubles was that it involved backing selections in both singles and doubles. 

And whilst the singles did pretty well, the doubles had a bit of a ‘mare and dragged down the results. So they have decided to reform the service and just concentrate on the singles.

This seems like a very sensible approach to us and we had said at the outset of our trial of Draw Doubles that we were worried the results for the doubles could be very volatile, have long losing streaks and not truly represent the quality of the individual selections. 

So it proved and we are glad to see that the service will now concentrate on just single bets.

The service therefore is very simple: just back the selected match to finish in a draw and that is it – no trading or hedging needed. 

The results for the single bets since the service started are pretty strong, with 34 points profit made at a strike rate of 31% and with 69% bank growth.

As we said in the our original review of Draw Doubles, there is evidence to suggest there is value to be found in backing the draw, primarily because not many people bet on it so the price can be higher than it should be.

Let’s hope that proves to be the case here and we end up with some nice profits.

Anyway, we will start our trial today and incorporate the previous results of the single bets that we have already proofed over the last few months. 

We will update results here soon, but in the meantime you can check out Draw Profits here.

Exponential Bet In-Play Betting System – Full Review

 

Exponential Bet is a series of betting systems and strategies run by a guy called Ryan Phillips who is a professional gambler.

We previously reviewed another of Exponential Bet’s systems, their Dutch Betting System which delivered excellent results over the course of more than a year we followed it for and received a passed rating. 

This review looked at their In-Play Betting System, which is essentially a system for betting on the horses in-play on Betfair. It was in beta-testing mode for our trial. 

It is recommended to use a bot to operate the system – any of Fairbot, BF Bot Manager or Bet Engine can be used. We used Bet Engine for the review and found it to work fairly smoothly.

During the review period the option of making the system fully automated rather than having to find the potential qualifying races yourself was added, which was also helpful. 

The recommended approach is to follow a “stop at a profit” strategy, whereby once you have reached a target profit for the day, you stop and don’t place any more bets. If the target profit isn’t hit then you continue through eligible races until the end of the day. This can all be programmed into the bot. 

At the end of our three month trial we finished with a profit to 341 points to 10 point stakes (or 34 points to 1 point stakes), which represented a 34% growth of the bank. 

As you can see from the graph below, it was pretty steady upward progress during the review:

That was achieved with a healthy strike rate of 56% in terms of the races bet in and 80% of the days on which the system operated finished with a profit 

So overall the system performed very well during our trial and we are happy to award it a PASSED rating. 

At first it can seem quite complicated and that there is a lot to take in, but once you have got the hang of it and everything is set up, you can just let the bot run and do its thing which is great. Ryan’s customer service is also first class and we found him very helpful in dealing with any queries or issues we had.  

The only small point to note is that sometimes there were different results reported by members as liquidity means some bets may not have been matched by everyone, but we believe those issues were ironed out and any discrepancies should even out over the long run anyway. 

Anyway, all in all we were impressed with the system, which operates solely on Betfair and doesn’t need any use of the bookies. We look forward to its general release following the beta testing.  

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use:  As mentioned above, it can seem quite complicated at first and there is a bit of work to do in terms of setting everything up, but once you have done that you can just let the bot run and do its thing. We recommend using a bot because finding the selections yourself and monitoring all the races manually would be very time-consuming. 

Availability of prices: As also mentioned above, there were some small discrepancies in matching the bets on occasion but we understand these have been ironed out and would not affect the overall results to any significant degree anyway. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 56%, which is very good and meant drawdowns were minimal. 

Advised Betting Bank: A 1000 point betting bank is advised for following the service (i.e. on the basis of 10-point stakes per bet), which seems a sensible and appropriate level to us to cope with any losing runs.  

Subscription costs: The costs are currently a one-off fee of £74.99 to purchase the system, which includes all the set up instructions so you can operate it on an ongoing basis. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT:

This is the second of Exponential Bet’s betting systems we have tested and also the second one we have given a PASSED rating to, with a profit of 341 points made during our three month trial. 

The system can be operated via a bot on Betfair, which although takes a little bit of effort to set up will save a lot of time in the long run and means the system can be operated on auto-pilot. 

The name of all Ryan’s systems is to steadily build a bank over the long term and we can certainly see that being done with this excellent In-Play Betting System.

You can view full results here.

With the addition of automated betting via a bot this is running nicely and looking like a top system from what we have seen so far. Let’s hope the strong results continue.

Exponential Bet In-Play Betting System – Results Update

12th November 2018

It’s been an excellent start to our trial of Exponential Bet’s In-Play Betting System, with a profit of 188 points made so far to 10 point stakes (or 18.8 points to 1 point stakes).

You can view full results here.

This is an approach that lays horses in running that fit certain criteria.

There are a few things to note about the system – firstly, for practical purposes you will need a betting bot like the Bet Engine or Fairbot to run it. 

Secondly, it is a “stop at a target profit” staking system, so you stop either when you have made at least 1 point profit (or £10 in our case) or you run out of races for the day.

Thirdly up until now you have to had to manually select which races the bot should operate in for the day, but they have been working on automating this and it looks just about ready (for the Bet Engine at least), which is good.

So far this has been running well and delivering steady profits and with the addition of automating the process it’s looking like a top notch betting product.

Exponential Bet In-Play Betting System – New Review

15th October 2018

We recently posted a one-year update on our review of Exponential Bet’s Dutch Betting System and gave it a continued passed rating after a strong performance over the last 12 months. 

The Exponential Bet platform is run by a guy called Ryan who is a professional gambler himself and we have been impressed by both the profitability of Exponential Bet’s various systems and Ryan’s honesty and transparency.  

So today we are starting a review of one of Exponential Bet’s other services, namely their In-Play Betting System.

The results of this system so far look extremely impressive, with over £640 profit made to just £10 stakes since March of this year. 

That has been achieved with a 56% strike rate, so the majority of selections have been winners and the losing runs have been minimal so far.

Essentially the system is for betting on the horses in-play. It is recommended you use a bot to operate the system – any of Fairbot, BF Bot Manager or Bet Engine can be used. Personally we are using Bet Engine for the review because we are familiar with it and can be programmed to be “set and forget” for this system. 

There is a list of selection criteria you need to go through each day to see which races qualify. Then you tell the bot which of the races to operate in and let it do its thing. This process may be automated in future so you don’t need to find the races, but for now you do. 

It is worth pointing out that the system is currently in beta mode for testing purposes. Given the outstanding results achieved to date though we can’t see it being too long before it goes from beta into being officially launched.

In any event the good news is that you can still get access to the beta mode for a 25% discount at the moment so you don’t miss out on the excellent performance of the system. 

Anyway, without further ado we will kick off the review and will report back here soon how things are going.

In the meantime you can check out Exponential Bet’s In-Play Betting System here.

SJP Golf Tips – Full Review

 

SJP Golf Tips is a golf tipping service provided by a professional golfer Stuart J Priestley and is hosted on the Sports Betting Stars platform. 

We undertook an extended six-month trial of the service, as with most golf services you need a good period of time to get a proper look at performance. One winner or a long losing run can distort results over a shorter period. 

Our chief reviewer Dan also followed the tips in a personal capacity for about a year before this review started so we can vouch for the results over a pretty lengthy period now. 

And what results they have been! 

Over the course of our six-month trial SJP racked up an excellent 122 points of profit at a superb return on investment of 31%. 

There were some great winners during our trial, including:-

  • – Bubba Watson at the Travelers at 33/1
  • – Ryan Fox to be 1st round Leader at the Irish Open at 66/1
  • – Brooks Koepka for the PGA at 20/1
  • – Brandt Snedeker to win the Wyndham at 22/1 and to be 1st rd Leader at 40/1
  • – Matt Wallace for the Made in Denmark at 33/1
  • – Jordan Smith to be 1st rd leader at the DP Champs at 66/1 (dead heated)
  • – Belgium to win the World Cup at 11/1

In addition there were also a plethora of placed finishes to keep the bank ticking over. 

Here are the results for the trial in graph format:

As is fairly typical for golf services, things did fluctuate around a bit but it was always in profit and was punctuated with some nice winners throughout. 

So together with the 100 or so points made in the year prior to our review that we were following the tips, this has to go down as one of the best golf tipsters we have ever come across and a definite PASSED rating.

One to undoubtedly consider adding to the portfolio. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: A pretty easy service to follow with just eight bets per week on average, usually sent on Wednesday morning. Quite a few of the tips are in the first round leader market which is a little unusual but those bets have been a big part of the profits so are clearly worth including. 

Availability of prices: We didn’t experience any problems getting the advised prices. As with most golf services, you can generally beat the win part of the bet by using the exchanges but get worse for the place part. 

Strike rate: The strike rate during the trial was 14% (including placed selections), which is fairly standard for a golf service and as ever does mean a good amount of patience and a decent-sized betting bank are required.  

Advised Betting Bank: A 200 point bank is advised for following the service, which seems reasonable given the largest drawdown to date is around 100 points. If you wanted to be really safe then a 250-300 point bank could be used though. 

Subscription costs: The subscription fees are FREE for the first 14 days then £29.99/month, £79.99/quarter or £299.99/year.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

It’s been a fantastic trial for SJP Golf Tips with 122 points profit made at a return on investment of 31%. We have no hesitation in awarding it a PASSED rating. 

SJP is someone who clearly benefits from the inside knowledge of being a professional golfer himself and that comes through in his selections – and more importantly his results.

As we always say, golf services require a bigger betting bank and more patience than most other sports, but it can pay off in a big way if you do have those things and certainly it has for followers of SJP Golf Tips so far.

One of the best golf services we have seen and a superstar tipster in the making. 

And the great news is you can now get a free trial for 30 days here.

SJP Golf Tips – Results Update

29th November 2018

It’s been a good month for SJP Golf Tips, with 37 points profit made since our last update towards the end of October. 

That means for our trial overall SJP is an excellent 148 points up.

You can view full results here.

Highlights over the last month include Jordan Smith to be first round leader at the DP World Tour Championship at 66/1, which dead-heated for the win, Belgium winning the World Cup of Golf last week at 11/1 and quite a few placed finishes too.

We have another month left in our sixth-month trial of this service but suffice to say it is heading for a resounding passed rating.

SJP Golf Tips – Results Update

25th October 2018

There’s been quite a significant correction for SJP Golf Tips lately, with a loss of 43 points since our last update a month ago. 

However, with excellent results earlier in our trial, he is still 111 points up overall.

You can view full results here.

As ever, this is the way with golf tipsters – losing runs of 50 or 100 points are not uncommon. It is difficult to know exactly what the right bank is for following a golf service like this. They recommend a 200 point bank but we wonder whether a 300 or 400 point would be more appropriate to be on the safe side.

This service’s worst losing run to date is around 70 points, so a 200 point bank seems reasonable, but you never know when things can go badly wrong so you may want to err a little higher. 

In any event, the trial overall has still gone very well so hopefully a winner isn’t too far around the corner.

SJP Golf Tips – Results Update

24th September 2018

More profits to report for SJP Golf Tips, with a further 7 points made in the right direction since our last update a month ago.

That means they are now 154 points up for our trial overall.

You can view full results here.

Recent winners include Matt Wallace at 33/1 at the Made in Denmark and a few placed finishes have helped results also. 

With the Ryder Cup this week it should be interesting to see how they get on and can hopefully land us some more profits for the big event.

SJP Golf Tips – Results Update

22nd August 2018

The excellent form continues for SJP Golf Tips, with another 74 points profit added since our last update a month ago.

That means they are now 147 points up for the trial overall, which is superb going.

You can view full results here.

The recent winners include Brooks Koepka for the USPGA at 20/1 and Brandt Snedeker for the Wyndham Championship at 22/1 and to be First Round Leader at 40/1. 

So this is looking like a top quality service based on what we have seen and long may it continue.

SJP Golf Tips – Results Update

24th July 2018

It’s been an excellent start to our trial of SJP Golf Tips, with a profit of 73 points made so far after one month.

You can view full results here.

The strong start is down in large part to Bubba Watson winning the Travelers Championship at 33/1 and then Ryan Fox leading after the first round of the Irish Open at 66/1. 

It could have been even better though, as they also tipped Fox to win the tournament outright at 80/1. In case you missed it, he was very unlucky not to win, with Russel Knox holing a couple of massive 40-foot putts on the last hole and then in the playoff to deny Fox the title.

Those are kind of once-in-a-lifetime events that most golfers never get to experience, so Fox and his backers can count themselves very unfortunate.

Even so, 73 points of profit made so far is superb stuff and long may it continue.

SJP Golf Tips – New Review

21st June 2018

We don’t get to review many golf betting services here at Honest Betting Reviews – partly because there aren’t that many of them out there.

So when we get a chance to review a promising new service we are always quite keen to take up the opportunity. 

We were approached recently to take a look at a service called SJP Golf Tips and this is one we did not want to miss out on.

The interesting thing about SJP Golf tips is that the service is provided by someone who is a professional golfer themselves – namely Stuart J Priestley (initials SJP). 

Using his vast knowledge and golfing experience, SJP Golf Tips has generated large profits over the past two years and boasts an excellent return on investment (ROI) of 38%.

Since starting up in January 2015 the service has made a superb 1100 points profit, which works out an average monthly profit of £275 to £10 stakes. 

Being a professional golfer himself Stuart obviously follows the game very closely and knows the players strengths and weaknesses very well. Each week you get a nice summary of the tournaments, courses and fields taking part. 

As well as outright tips Stuart also supplies tips on things like first round leader, where he has picked a few long-odds winners over the years. 

Although we are starting an official review today, our chief reviewer Dan has been a member of the service since back in August so we can proof the tips from back then.

Golf betting can inevitably be very up and down with a 100/1 winner wiping out months of previous losses, so it is good to be able to do a long-term review.

Anyway, without further ado we will kick off the official trial and will report back soon on how things are going.

In the meantime you can check out SJP Golf Tips here.

Football Advisor Lays – Final Review

We have reached the end of our seven month trial of Football Advisor Lays and here are the final results:-

 

Profit/Loss:  +23 points
Strike Rate:  79%
Bank Growth:  23%
ROI:  7%
Average number of bets:  1.5 per day
Cost:  £50/month, £125/quarter or £400/year
VERDICT:  PASSED
Rating:

 

You can view full results here. (please note there are two tabs on the results spreadsheet, Lay Wins and Lay Draws). 

 

Football Advisor Lays – Full Review

 

This is a re-review of Football Advisor Lays for us, having previously reviewed the service back in 2017 when we gave it a neutral rating after it finished with a profit of 7 points.

This time round we gave it an extended seven month review to really give the service a proper look.

At the end of that extended trial we have finished with a profit of 23 points, which is decent going.

However, it is worth bearing in mind that the total of 23 points combines the results from both the lay wins and the draw lays.

Taking them separately, the lay wins made a profit of 37 points where as the draw lays made a loss of 14 points

So really it looks like the lay wins are the ones to focus on – and they were the original offering of the service after all so perhaps that’s not surprising. And in fact they have recently “retired” the draw lays so in fact it is now just the win lays being provided. 

Combining the results of the lay wins this time with those of last time gives a combined total of 44 points profit, which is pretty good going when you consider you are laying at 1 point level stakes.

The strike rate for our trial was high at just under 80% and the ROI respectable too at 7%.

So in view of all that we think the service warrants a PASSED rating, particularly if you just focus on the win lays. 

They have shown consistency over a lengthy period of time and that is what we look for when judging a service. Making a profit through laying is notoriously difficult so we are always impressed when a service manages it. 

The added bonus with Football Advisor Lays is that you can place all the bets on Betfair and don’t need to rely on bookie accounts.

All in all then it is a service well worth considering adding to your portfolio. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: A very simple service to use and that is certainly a plus point. There is an average of just one bet per day, although this tends to work out as having lots of bets at weekends and then some weekdays and international breaks with none. Tips are normally sent out early in the morning (UK time) and you will need access to an exchange (e.g. Betfair, Smarkets) to place the lay bets. 

Availability of prices: Most of the time the liquidity held up well, certainly in the big leagues like the Premiership and La Liga etc, although sometimes prices do get pushed in on the smaller leagues. 

Strike rate: The strike rate during the trial was 79%, which is good but actually lower than the historical average for the service which stands at 86% according to their results.

Advised Betting Bank: An 80-100 point bank is advised for following the service, which should be more than sufficient to cover losing runs. The longest draw-down to date has been 21 points.

Subscription costs: The costs are £50 per month, £125 per quarter, £225 for 6 months or £400/year.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

This is a re-review of Football Advisor Lays after having reviewed it last year and we are pleased to report that after a second look we are upgrading this from a neutral to a PASSED rating. 

With a combined profit of 44 points across our two reviews when betting on the win lays only, this has established a strong record over a lengthy period of time and clearly has an edge on the markets when it comes to laying.

So if this isn’t already part of your portfolio then you may well want to consider adding it at the earliest opportunity. 

Update – Please note there is a 20% discount on new memberships until midnight on Monday 26th November 2018

Football Advisor Lays – Results Update

6th October 2018

No change for Football Advisor Lays since our last update, with no points won or lost over the last month.

That means they are still 12 points up for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

[Please note there are two tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet for their two separate systems – the win lays and draw lays].

The broad numbers don’t tell the full story however, as the win lays are 22 points up for our trial, whilst the draw lays are actually 11 points down. 

Just a reminder that this is a laying system where you place the bets on Betfair (or your exchange of choice). There is no trading needed – just place the lays and then leave them.

Anyway, let’s hope for some upward progress by the time of our next update.

Football Advisor Lays – Results Update

3rd September 2018

More progress has been made by Football Advisor Lays since our last update, with another 5 points profit made over the last month.

[Please note there are two tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet for their two separate systems – the win lays and draw lays].

The broad numbers don’t tell the full story however, as the win lays are 27 points up for our trial, whilst the draw lays are actually 15 points down. 

So it’s looking like the win lays are the ones to follow based on the results of our trial to date, but we will obviously keep a close eye on things to see if that remains to be the case.

Football Advisor Lays – Results Update

25th July 2018

It’s been a good run for Football Advisor Lays since our last update, with 8 points profit made over the last month.

That means they are now 7 points up for the trial overall.

[Please note there are two tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet for win lays and draw lays – although the draw lays appear to have been paused for the moment].

It’s nice when you get runs like this in lay betting, with 12 of the last 13 selections successful since our last update, so the profit builds nicely.

Let’s see if that continues once the football season kicks off again in a couple of weeks.

[Please note there are two tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet for win lays and draw lays – although the draw lays appear to have been paused for the moment].

There have been a few selections for the World Cup but it has been a bit of minefield for punters with so many surprising results so far.

Anyway, let’s hope Football Advisor Lays can back to winning ways by the time of our next update.

Football Advisor Lays – Results Update

25th May 2018

It’s been a good start to our (re-)review of Football Advisor Lays, with 6 points profit made so far after around 3 weeks.

You can view full results here.

However, that doesn’t tell the whole story as there are two sets of lays – win lays and draw lays (which you can view via the two tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet) and the former have done very well, with 13 points won, whilst the latter have lost 7 points.

That is in tune with the longer-term trend as well, with the win lays having made 282 points profit, whilst the draw lays are much newer and have made just 9 points profit overall.

So it looks like the win lays are the ones to concentrate on here.

Anyway, with the season over it is going to be a little quiet now until the World Cup starts when we should see plenty more action.

Football Advisor Lays – Re-Review

8th May 2018

Following on from launching our review of FA Racing Lays last week, today we are turning our attention to another Football Advisor service.

This is one we actually reviewed last year and gave a neutral rating to after it finished our trial with a profit of 7 points.

However, given that we will now be taking a look at all the Football Advisor services, we thought it would only be fair to take a look at this one again too.

Plus when we did our original review last year, they apparently had an issue with the ratings they use and that negatively affected the results during our trial. 

So we are happy to take another look at this one and to do a re-review of the service.

Just to recap, these are lay bets on football matches (both in the win market and draw market) across various leagues. 

You just need to lay the bets on Betfair (or your exchange or choice) and that is it, you are done.

The results for the service look excellent, with over 50 points profit made since our trial ended in October and 283 points profit made overall since the service started.

That has come with a strike rate of over 84%, so a very high proportion of successful lays.

We are looking forward to trialling this one and to seeing how it gets on. As usual results will be recorded here for you to check. 

In the meantime you can check out Football Advisor Lays here.

Football Advisor Lays – Final Review

18th October 2017

We have completed our three month trial of Football Advisor Lays and here are the final results:-

 

Profit/Loss:   +7 points  
Strike Rate:  75%
Bank Growth:    9%
ROI:  1.7%
Average number of bets:   1 per day
Cost:  £47/month, £112/quarter or £188/6 months
VERDICT:  NEUTRAL
Rating:

 

You can view full results here.

 

Football Advisor Lays – Full Review

 

We originally reviewed Football Advisor’s main backing service back in September last year and gave it a neutral rating after it ended our trial with 8 points of profit.

Now we have just finished trialing their football lays service and we feel like we are repeating ourselves somewhat, but the results have been remarkably similar.

After a three month trial we have finished with 7 points of profit, which again isn’t bad by any means and we are happy to finish any trial in profit to be honest.

The strike rate was a healthy 75%, so the vast majority of lays are successful.

The return on investment (ROI) was a little on the low side at 1.7%. Although you expect ROI to be much lower with laying services than backing ones, we would still like to have seen that ROI a little higher.

The bets are straightforward lay bets in the match odds market and come in a variety of leagues across the world.

So for example you will get an e-mail like this:-

Lays
Bristol Rovers at 4.30 with Betfair (League One / Portsmouth)

It is then very simply a case of placing a lay bet at your exchange of choice and then you are done.

Looking at how the trial progressed, it started off well before hitting a very sticky patch in the middle. Apparently they had a technical issue with the ELO ratings meaning they were producing the wrong selections for a part of August. 

Once they revised their selection process it certainly seemed to pay off, with a run of 20 straight successful lays at the end. 

As you can see from the graph below, it was a roller-coaster ride!

Football Advisor Lays Profit Graph

In total we ended up with bank growth of 9% by the conclusion of the trial, which is a respectable total.

But it didn’t quite hit the heights necessary to warrant an approved rating, so for the time being we feel a NEUTRAL rating is fair for Football Advisor Lays.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: A very simple service to use and that is certainly a plus point. There is an average of just one bet per day, although this tends to work out as having lots of bets at weekends and then some weekdays and international breaks with none. Tips are normally sent out early in the morning (UK time) and you will need access to an exchange (e.g. Betfair, Smarkets) to place the lay bets. 

Availability of prices: Most of the time the liquidity held up well, certainly in the big leagues like the Premiership and La Liga etc, although sometimes prices do get pushed in on the smaller leagues. 

Strike rate: The strike rate during the trial was 75%, which is good but actually lower than the historical average for the service which stands at 86% according to their results.

Advised Betting Bank: An 80-100 point bank is advised for following the service, which should be more than sufficient to cover losing runs. The longest draw-down to date has been 21 points.

Subscription costs: The costs are £47 per month, £112 per quarter or £188 for 6 months, which if the pre-trial results were repeated would be a fair cost. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

We tend to like services that are simple to follow and don’t rely on complex methodologies, ratcheted staking systems or wild hype to justify their existence, so we were looking forward to trialing Football Advisor Lays, which provides simple lay bets in the match odds market.

It is a very simple service to follow and the results prior to our trial looked mighty impressive.

In the trial itself, a profit of 7 points was made, which isn’t bad at all but we feel wasn’t quite high enough to warrant an approved rating, so we are giving it a NEUTRAL rating at this stage.

Given that our trial started in the Summer months when there are less fixtures and taking into account the way things picked up towards the end with a 20-match winning streak and the pre-trial results, this is a service we would like to keep an eye on as to whether it warrants an upgrade.

Football Advisor Lays – Results Update

14th September 2017

A little bit of a bounce back for Football Advisor Lays after something of a nightmare run last time.

Since our last update at the end of August, they have added three points of profit. That means we are now 12 points down for the trial overall.

You can view full results here.

It could have actually been much better as they were on a run of 10 winners in a row before they just hit a couple of losers at 5.2 and 4.6.

After the bad spell at the end of August, they had a look at their selection process and concluded:

“The custom team ratings that we use as part of our multi layered selection criteria is a bespoke adaption of the ELO rating model. Regretfully there were some issues with combining the end of season rating with the new season rating, which resulted in what we saw for the last two weeks.

The good news though is that we are confident that we have now fixed this and we have run 100’s of simulations to test this to be sure.”

Results seem to be trending in the right direction, so let’s hope they have sorted things!

Back soon with more updates.

It’s been a tough run lately for Football Advisor Lays, which have lost 19 points since our last update.

That means they are now 15 points down for the trial overall.

You can view full results here.

Jon who runs the service has apologised for the recent run, which is appreciated as a subscriber – certainly lots of tipsters don’t even bother saying sorry for a poor run. He is also taking a few days off to review the recent results and see where things have gone wrong.

Hopefully he will find the solution and be back on form shortly.

Football Advisor Lays – Results Update

5th August 2017

It’s been a solid start to our trial of Football Advisor Lays, which is 4 points up so after one month.

You can view full results here.

This is a service that advises lays in the match odds market on Betfair. Odds can be quite high, up to 9.0 so far, meaning a decent sized bank is required when following the service.

It has been fairly quiet thus far in terms of bets as we have been in the off season, but with the season getting underway now we should volume pick up.

Football Advisor Lays – New Review

3rd July 2017

They say one good turn deserves another. So after recently launching a trial of a Football Advisor service (their racing one), we decided we would start another trial.

This time it is a football one and is actually a laying service – Football Advisor Lays. 

It is relatively new, having launched in November 2016 but has established a very favourable record since then.

They capped their initial membership at 50 and over 90% of those original members are apparently still with the 7 months on and for good reason;

– 226 bets since November 2016
– 191 winners at a strike rate of 84.5%
– Average lay odds of 5.3
– 38.95 units profit after commission
– Largest drawdown of 23.35 units
– A record busting 35 winning lay bets in a row

The full 2016/17 season brought in 64.19 units at a similar performance level. Since 2013, their approach has apparently made over 211 units profit.

Now it isn’t a normal time to be starting a trial of a football system with it being the middle of Summer, but the service still has a good number of bets on the Summer leagues and we are only just over a month away from the start of the full season anyway.

We are yet to find too many good laying services, but this one looks interesting so well worth running a review of in our opinion.

We will follow the bets for three months (or until we reach at least 100 bets) and will update results here regularly during the trial.

In the meantime you can check out Football Advisor Lays here.

 

 

 

strict rule system

The Strict Rule System – Final Review

We have reached the end of our three month trial of The Strict Rule System and here are the final results:-

 

Profit/Loss:  +161 points
Strike Rate:  32%
Bank Growth:  32%
ROI:  21%
Average number of bets:  One per day
Cost:  €25/week, €47/month or €109/quarter
VERDICT:  PASSED
Rating:

 

You can view full results here.

 

The Strict Rule System – Full Review

 

The Strict Rule System is a tipster from the respected Tipstrr platform of betting systems and tipsters.

The name is suggestive of a systems-based approach but this is in fact more of a straightforward tipping service. The idea of “strict rules” is more that they will only back a horse if it meets the strict rules they set to qualify for a bet, but that comes after form study which is the bedrock of the approach. So the rules keep them disciplined and sticking to clear criteria.

The results during our three month trial were very good, with a profit of 161 points made to advised prices. 

The Betfair SP results ended up pretty close to the advised prices, with a profit of 147 points made. 

It should be noted that the average stake during our trial was 7 points per bet, meaning that to 1 point stakes the profit would have been approximately 23 points profit. 

That is still pretty decent however and came at a very respectable return on investment of 21% and strike rate of 32% (including placed horses). 

Below you can see the results for the trial in graph format:

As you can see, although there were a few ups and downs it made a solid profit overall. 

It’s a pretty simple service to follow, with an average of just one bet per day – although as with most horse racing services that tends to mean more on weekends and less earlier in the week. 

Overall then we are pleased to award The Strict Rule System a PASSED rating after a successful three month trial. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use:  A pretty simple service to follow with an average of around one bet per day, normally sent out late at night for the next day’s racing. 

Availability of prices: There was not much of a problem in getting the advised prices and the Betfair SP results ended up pretty similar to the advised price results, with just 14 points difference between them. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 32% (including placed horses), which is a pretty good level to have maintained.  

Advised Betting Bank: A 500 point betting bank is advised for following the service, which we think could be a little on the low side given that there has been a month with a loss of 165 points in the past. With staking at 7 points per bet on average, we would think a 700 point bank would be more suitable here. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are €25/week, €47/month or €109/quarter.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

With a solid profit of 161 points made during our trial at a return on investment of over 20%, The Strict Rule System has proved its mettle and earned a PASSED rating from us. 

It’s a nice simple service to follow and with a good strike rate of over 30%, there is a good deal to like about the service. 

This is one we will be keeping an eye on for the long run to see if it can maintain a strong body of results.

The Strict Rule System – Results Update

16th October 2018

The Strict Rule System continues to perform excellently, racking up another 71 points profit at advised prices since our last update. 

That means they are now 148 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

The results at Betfair SP having been holding up well against the advised prices, with 53 points profit made since our last update and 137 points profit made overall. 

Just another reminder that the staking here is quite high with an average of 7 points per bet, meaning that they would be approximately 21 points up at one point level stakes. But that is still very good and has been achieved very steadily over our trial.

The Strict Rule System – Results Update

21st September 2018

Horse racing tipster The Strict Rule System has been on good form since our last update just over a month ago, with 76 points profit made at advised prices in that time.

That means they are now 77 points up at advised prices for our trial overall.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP they are actually doing slightly better, with 96 points profit made since our last update and 84 points profit made for the trial overall.

As we mentioned last time, the staking is between 4 and 10 points per bet, with the average being 7 points, so that is worth bearing in mind when looking at the results.

Still, good stuff from them and let’s hope for more of the same going forward.

 

 

 

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

The Strict Rule System – Results Update

12th August 2018

It’s been an up and down start to our trial of horse racing service The Strict Rule System, which went into big profit early on but has since fallen back to be just 1 point up so far at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP it is actually in deficit for our trial, with 12 points lost so far.  

The staking system utilises staking between 6 and 10 points placed on each selection, so that is worth bearing in mind when looking at the results (please note this update previously had Tipstrr’s staking which is unit based on £/€/$ etc so that was not the staking system used by the service itself, which as we say is 6-10 points).

Most of the bets come in Irish racing which is unusual but nice to have a bit of variety as most of the services we follow concentrate on UK racing. 

So things pretty much even here so far but early days and plenty of time to get moving in the right direction again.

24th July 2018

Today we are going to take a look at a new tipster from the reputable Tipstrr platform and this one is called the Strict Rule System.

It is a horse racing service and although we don’t get details of what the rules behind the system actually are, apparently it is run by a guy called Edward, whose trialled and tested horse racing system has become a staple of the Tipstrr platform. 

Edward likes to prioritise helping members improve their level of knowledge with regards to horse racing and giving them all the tools they need to win.

The system appears to work very well, with close to 1800 points profit made since the service started around a year ago.

That has been made with a return on investment of over 17% which is pretty decent and the strike rate is over 32%, which is fairly solid. 

There is certainly something to be said for strategies that follow clear rules as it takes out the element of human emotion and bias that can affect the objectivity of some gamblers.

Whether it ends up making profit under live trial conditions remains to be seen but we will find out soon enough.

So we will kick off a standard three month trial and will report back soon on how things are going.

In the meantime you can check out the Strict Rule System here.

Exponential Bet – One Year Update

It’s been a year since we started following Exponential Bet so we thought it would be a good time for an update on how they have been doing.

We completed our original review back in February and awarded them a PASSED rating after they finished with a profit of 33 points at the end of our three month trial. 

So how have they have been doing since our review ended?

Well, they have added quite a lot of new features and betting strategies since then – but more on that below. We will concentrate on their original “Dutch Betting” as that was what our original review was based on.

Just as a reminder, their Dutch Betting strategy is basically a system where you are backing multiple horses in the same race, either in singles or multiples. It is a very high strike rate service and only takes a couple of minutes per day to place the bets.  

In terms of results, the Dutch Betting has continued to perform very well, with the bank for the Dutch multiple bets having increased from £1200 to £1400 since our review ended, with an amazing 95% strike rate. Their Value Dutch Bets and Singles are also showing a profit, which is good to see.

So overall this is doing exactly what it says on the tin and continuing to slowly and steadily build a bank with very little downside and a minimal amount of work involved.

We are happy therefore to maintain our PASSED rating for Exponential Bet’s Dutch Betting systems and feel that this is a service well worth checking out.

As we mentioned earlier though, they have added quite a few new betting systems since our original review ended and these look very interesting.

Their in-play betting system, for example, has made over £620 profit from just £10 bets with a 56% strike rate since starting up in March. Although still in beta version this looks very promising indeed and we will be starting a review of it shortly, so watch out for that.

They also have football betting, betting bots and a Betfair Trading Guide all of which are showing a profit so far, so we hope to take a look at those in due course too.

In the meantime it’s a firm thumbs up for Exponential Bet and we continue to be impressed by the profitability and level of service they provide.

Exponential Bet – Full Review

 

Exponential Bet is a suite of various betting systems for horse racing and football.

The service is run by a guy called Ryan who has been a professional gambler for a number of years and he developed these systems after rigorous testing.

The idea of all the systems – as the name of the website suggests – is to grow a betting bank exponentially over time by using progressive staking.

Of course a staking system is only any use if the selections themselves are actually profitable – if they aren’t then no staking system can turn a losing approach into a winning one.

But if the selections are profitable then using a progressive approach, where you bet a percentage of your bank each time, can grow your bank dramatically over time.

For the purposes of this review, we were just looking at their horse racing dutching systems.

In essence with these systems you are betting on a number of different horses in the same race at combined odds which are very low, often 1.1 – 1.2. 

So it is a little bit like laying the outsiders, but with better liquidity and not needing to lay at crazy odds of 100+ which you need a lot of funds to do.

So how did the laying systems get on in our trial?

Well are pleased to say they did very well, churning out a solid 33 points of profit overall during our three month review.

All of the four systems ended in profit which was good to see and the strike rate was extremely good at 93%.

The service utilises an unusual method of betting that involves using the BSP multiples service, which is on the old Betfair interface. It can take a little getting used to but there are instructions on the Exponential Bet website.

One of the problems with using BSP multiples is that it doesn’t record your bet results in your Betfair bet history, so it can be a little more work than usual keeping track of your results.

But Ryan updates you daily by e-mail so that helps with things.

One point to bear in mind is that if you are following all four of the dutching systems then you will need four separate betting banks, so make sure you have enough funds available to do that. 

Overall though we were impressed by the service and can see that over time the banks could really grow.

We are happy to give this a PASSED rating based on our three month trial and will keep an eye on things to see if the banks do continue growing over time.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: As we say, placing the bets takes a little bit of getting used to but once you have got the hang of things it shouldn’t take too long each day to place the bets. The selections are usually sent out late morning and then you just go to the BSP multiples page and it takes a few minutes normally to place the bets.

Availability of prices: As you are using the Betfair SPs, there is no issue with getting the prices as everyone will of course get the same prices.

Strike rate: The strike rate during the trial was 93%,  which is excellent and means losing runs should be minimal with this service. 

Advised Betting Bank: Different banks are advised for each service, but normally you are betting between 5% and 10% of your bank each time.

Subscription costs: The subscription costs for the four dutching systems (including the new Super Dutch system) are £29.99 per month, £148.99 for 6 months or £268.99 per year. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Exponential Bet’s Dutching Systems take an unusual approach to betting, but in a way we like that.  It is tough to make a profit these days if you are just using age-old form reading, so we tend to favour approaches that take a different angle.

The results during our trial were solid, with 33 points profit made with a very high strike rate of 93%.

We can see that if those results were maintained in the long run, you could really build a bank in an exponential fashion like the service aims for.

So it is a PASSED rating from us and one we will keep monitoring to see if they can indeed continue to build those banks.

Exponential Bet – Results Update

4th January 2018

Exponential Bet continues to make steady progress, adding another 6 points of profit since our last update.

That means we are now 16 points up for the trial overall across all the different dutching systems.

You can view full results here.

Please note at the bottom of the results spreadsheet you can see tabs for each of the dutching systems – D1, D2, D3, D4 Multiples and D4 Singles.

Good to see things moving along nicely here and if that continues then stakes will steadily build and the bank will grow towards some exponential returns.

Exponential Bet – Results Update

7th December 2017

Things have continued on steadily for Exponential Bet, which is what it is all about really.

Since our last update we have made another 6 points profit across all the systems, meaning we are now 10 points up in total.

You can view full results here.

Please note at the bottom of the results spreadsheet you can see tabs for each of the dutching systems – D1, D2, D3 and D4 Multiples.

It takes a little bit of getting used to in terms of placing the bets and tracking results but we think we have the hang of it now.

Good to see the positive progress here and let’s hope it continues long term.

Exponential Bet – Results Update

18th November 2017

It’s been a little bit of a quiet start to our trial of Exponential Bet, although we are in profit so far.

We have been following the tips since 1st November and across all the horse racing dutching systems, we are 4 points in profit so far.

You can view full results here.

Please note at the bottom of the results spreadsheet you can see tabs for each of the dutching systems – D1, D2, D3 and D4 Multiples.

The idea behind Exponential Bet is to place dutch bets so that you are covering multiple eventualities in the same race.

Plus you are using progressive staking, so you are using a fixed percentage of your bank (e.g. 10%) on each bet to hopefully grow your bank over time more quickly than if you were using fixed staking. If things go really well then the banks should grow exponentially – hence the name of the service.

It uses an unusual method of betting that involves the BSP multiples service, which is on the old Betfair interface.

One of the problems with that is that it doesn’t record your bet results in your Betfair bet history, so it can be a little more hard work keeping track of your results.

Anyway, a solid start from Exponential Bet and hopefully the bank growth will continue.

Exponential Bet – New Review

29th October 2017

Here at Honest Betting Reviews we are always on the lookout for new and innovative approaches to betting.

Let’s face it, in this information age we live in, if you just go through old-school form reading to try and pick your bets, you are probably going to struggle.

You need to try and find some kind of new angle, a different approach to those being used by the vast majority of punters.

So when we were approached by a chap called Ryan lately about his new betting strategy, it piqued our interest.

Ryan runs the Exponential Bet website and his specialist approach to betting is to concentrate on growing a betting bank exponentially by using an incremental staking system.

Whilst the focus is on protecting the betting bank, the goal is to start with an initial betting investment and grow it into a substantial sum. 

The staking system is built in to the betting systems themselves. This means that growing each betting bank is made as simple as possible for members of Exponential Bet.

Ryan uses his own betting and trading strategies as the basis for the service. These are the same strategies that he has developed over a number of years as a professional gambler to make a substantial income for himself.

He began developing his betting seriously back in 2009 and ran a betting website previously. In mid- last year Ryan decided to introduce his exponential betting systems, and added a PDF ebook to ebay to test the water. Surprised at the take up of the product he then launched the Exponential Bet website last November, only recently adding a subscription service.  

The results published on the website look highly impressive, with one of the systems showing a 296% bank growth in 2 months and another showing a 617% bank growth in 8 months.

Those results have been achieved with a very high strike rate that allows the bank to increase significantly on long winning runs. 

There are three different strategies on the website for members to potentially get involved in. They are:

  • – Pre-Race Trading (horse racing)
  • – Dutch Betting (horse racing)
  • – Football Betting tips

In case you aren’t aware, there is a full guide to what dutching is here, but basically it is where you back multiple selections in the same race or event. This gives you a greater chance of finding the winner but obviously also reduces your potential profits. In essence it is about reducing the margin for error.

This looks like a really interesting approach to betting and we are looking forward to seeing how it gets on during our review.

Our trial will commence on Tuesday 31st October and will run for three months as standard.

We will update results here regularly so you can see how things are going. 

In the meantime you can check out Exponential Bet here.
