Cheek Pieces – Full Review

 

Cheek Pieces is a horse racing tipster from the reputable Betting Gods stable of tipsters. We conducted a lengthy 14 month trial of the service, which gave us a large sample size of 715 bets.

Tips come in UK racing and are generally one point win, 0.5 pts each-way or 0.5 pt win bets, so very sensible staking. 

After our extended trial, they finished with 48 points profit at advised prices, which represented growth of 32% in the recommended starting bank.  

That was achieved with a solid strike rate of 24% and a return on investment of 7%

Interestingly the results at Betfair SP were actually better than those at advised prices, with a profit of 70 points made at BSP. 

So for those whose bookie accounts have been restricted, this looks like a very viable option. 

Overall the results were solid rather than spectacular over the course of our 14 month trial, but with a good profit made we are happy to award the service a PASSED rating. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections are sent out by e-mail, usually in the early evening UK time (5-6pm) with plenty of time to get the bets on. The tips normally come with detailed write-ups which is good to see. 

Availability of prices: We didn’t notice any discernible impact on prices and in fact as mentioned above, the Betfair SP results were actually better than the advised prices. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was solid at 24% (including placed horses) so there were  a reasonably steady rate of returns.  

Advised Betting Bank: A 150 point betting bank is recommended for following the service which seems reasonable to us given the low staking used.  

Subscription costs: The current subscription costs at the time of writing are £0.99 for first 10 days then £27+VAT per month. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Cheek Pieces is a horse racing tipster from the Betting Gods stable and made a solid 48 points profit at advised prices during our 14 month trial.

They actually performed quite a bit better at Betfair SP, with 70 points profit made for our trial. So this service looks like a viable option for those whose bookie accounts have been restricted.

The results overall were solid rather than spectacular, but a good profit was made during our trial so we are happy to award the service a PASSED rating.

Interestingly it’s actually been performing better at Betfair SP so far, with a profit of 14 points made since our last update and 36 points profit made for our trial to date at BSP.

Cheek Pieces – Results Update

26th October 2021

It’s been a quiet start to our trial of horse racing tipster Cheek Pieces, with a profit of 3 points made so far at advised prices after one month of our trial. 

You can view full results here.

It’s been performing better at Betfair SP so far interestingly, with a profit of 22 points made to date at BSP.

That was largely thanks to Helluvaboy which won at Kempton at an advised price of 16/1 but a BSP of 34. That does happen sometimes where a larger price selection can be much bigger odds at Betfair SP.

Even leaving that aside, they are still doing better at Betfair SP so we will keep an eye on that to see if it remains to be the case during the rest of our trial.

Cheek Pieces – New Review

24th September 2021

Today we are starting a new trial of a horse racing service called Cheek Pieces.

This is a tipster from the Betting Gods stable and is relatively new on the scene but has an impressive-looking record to date.

We’re not sure if there’s anything in the name of just a reference to horse racing nuance, but hopefully it’s a signed they are tuned into what they’re doing anyway.

They began proofing to Betting Gods at the start of this year and so far are 89 points up. That would equate to £890 profit at £10/point or £2,225 profit at £25/point.

That has come at a return on investment of 20% and a strike rate of 25%, which are healthy figures.

They have had five profitable months in a row which is good to see and seven profitable months from nine in total.

In terms of staking it looks very sensible, with 1 point win or 0.5 e/w stakes being used. There are around 2 bets per day on average, so it looks fairly manageable to follow.

As we say it is early days with this service but it looks promising so hopefully they can keep the run of profitable months going.

As usual we will record results as we go along here so you can see how they are getting on.

In the meantime you can check out Cheek Pieces for yourself here.

 

 

Loophole Trader – Final Review

Loophole Trader is a new system for trading the horses, using a hybrid between matched betting and trading.

The main system requires the use of bookmaker accounts and preferably with features such as best odds guaranteed (BOG) and cash-out available (there is a separate “Betfair-only system” which we will look at further below). 

Over the years we have come across many systems claiming to have found a betting “loophole,” only for 99.9% of them to have turned out to be a load of rubbish – or just a copy of something that is already out there and well known like matched betting.

So we approached Loophole Trader with a little trepidation in the first instance, but after digging in a little were reassured this wasn’t one of those systems.

Essentially the system is provided by way of a written guide, which is quite in-depth and comes with some tutorial videos. Reading through it all and understanding the information will probably take a bit of time and a few goes, as it’s quite complex to grasp what to do in each scenario with a trade.  

At its core though the strategy is quite straightforward and entirely logical. In essence it does work and is quite clever really – we haven’t seen this strategy out there anywhere else. 

It is worth bearing in mind that the recommended stakes are £250 for the initial bookie bet, but the full stake is never at risk and a losing trade in most cases should result in losses of £10-£20 max. 

We had some issues using the strategy as it does require unrestricted bookie accounts as mentioned above, but following it as best we could be made a total of £39 profit from a sample of ten trades. 

That’s pretty good and the results spreadsheet from the trader himself (Al) shows a profit of over £800, which we believe is very achievable after a couple of months of doing this.

The main downsides to the system we can see are that:

  • a) It is does require you to be at your computer for a period before races start (up to half an hour but at least 15 minutes realistically) to monitor the markets live. In the early part of our trial, Al was sending possible races for the day via Telegram and then updating members with alerts when a suitable trade was available, but has now stopped doing so. That’s a real shame in our view as that made it much more viable to follow the system, but Al felt the subscription model wasn’t working and not enough people were following the alerts. That is understandable, but hopefully if there is demand further down the line that option can be looked at again.  
  • b) You would be likely to suffer bookie restrictions after using it for a little while. How long exactly? Well that’s difficult to tell as it normally differs from case to case but after a few months, or even weeks, the bookies might well restrict your account. There are steps you can take to avoid this, as described here. 

There is also, as we have mentioned, a Betfair-only system. This involves trading on a horse if given criteria are met (which have been derived from seeing how markets move based on the main system) and getting out once there has been a move in either direction of around 10%. 

After executing a handful of trades, it would seem like this strategy could have legs but it would require detailed testing over a long period to say for certain. Sadly the time to do this, as indicated above, would be quite considerable. 

In addition Al has added a couple of extra features recently, one is an each-way system which looks quite similar to Each-Way Sniper previously reviewed here and the other is a bot for trading. We haven’t tested either but those are some extra options for members which are good to see. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Loophole Trader is an innovative system that is hybrid between trading and matched betting. It relies on having certain bookie features available to work. 

Having read through the manual and tested it out we can confirm that the system definitely works and has sound logic behind it. We made a decent profit from a small sample of trades made. 

It is a little time-consuming to use and does require being at your computer in the lead up to races to operate, so won’t be for everyone. As with any successful system, there is also the risk of bookie account closures. 

There is a Betfair-only system as well which looks promising but would require extensive testing to draw a definitive conclusion about. 

Overall though we are impressed with the main system which is innovative and effective and are happy to award it a PASSED rating.

Loophole Trader – Results Update

22nd September 2022

Loophole Trader is a system for trading on the horses, using a hybrid between matched betting and trading. 

It comes in the form of a training course and there is also a Telegram group where the system author, Al, provides a list of the potential races for the day and posts updates if an appropriate odds match is found. 

Although the core concept is pretty simple, there is a lot to work through on the course and a lot to get your head around. 

The key thing is understanding what to do in various scenarios if the odds drift, steam etc and there are differences between bookies and Betfair. If you don’t understand what to do in these scenarios and get it wrong then it can cost you, so it is essential to get this right and practice a bit before getting stuck in for real. 

So it has taken quite a bit of effort to understand all of that and get into a position to trade. 

However, I have taken a few trades – although sadly I am somewhat limited in my bookie accounts and am not able to stake at the recommended amount of £250 nor have all the facilities available (just a note that your full £250 should never be at risk – that is just the amount needed for the initial bookie bet – the actual potential loss should be much smaller at around £10).

Anyway, having taken a few dummy trades I am pleased to report that most have been successful and I am around £25 up so far. 

In terms of the system itself, as mentioned in the review introduction it is a genuine system and is quite clever. It’s not something I’ve seen before which is impressive given how saturated the matched betting market has become. 

You do need BOG bookie accounts for the main system and additional facilities, which we can’t really say here without giving things away, but suffice to say you need bookie accounts without restrictions. 

It’s also fair to say that after doing this for a while, you are likely to lose the facilities needed to make the system work. How long that takes will of course vary in each case, but it could be a few months on average, although some may be able to make it last longer of course.

However, the good news is that Al has also developed a Betfair-only system. This is really good news and gives a greatly extended shelf-life to the system. 

I am keen to test this Betfair-only system but want to first get the main bookie version tested properly with some results on the board. 

Once that is done, I will move on to looking at the Betfair-only system. 

So far though it’s a definite thumbs-up for the Loophole Trader and it is looking like a rare breakthrough in the trading/matched betting sector.

Loophole Trader – New Review

18th August 2022

We are starting a new trial today of a system called Loophole Trader. 

This is a system for trading on the horses, using a hybrid between matched betting and trading. 

It’s an interesting concept and one we haven’t come across before, so does look like it is worth testing out. 

Now over the years we have heard the idea of a betting “loophole” many times, and the vast majority of the time it turns out to be a con or scam. 

However, in this case having taken a look at the basis of the system it does look genuine to us, although of course the real test will be whether it makes money in practice.

The system author is a guy called Al Gibbs, who has spent a lot of time developing the strategy and has written a full course manual (with accompanying videos) to explain how it works. He claims he made over £3,000 profit from trading the system last summer.  

In addition to the course manual there is also a Telegram group where Al sends the trades out each day as they can be quite time-consuming to find yourself apparently. 

One thing to be aware of is that you will preferably need BOG (best odds guaranteed) bookmakers to make the system work. 

Although the core concept is quite straightforward, there is quite a lot to get your head around in terms of knowing what to do in various situations so will need to spend some time getting to grips with it. 

As usual though will report back soon on how we are getting on. 

In the meantime you can check out Loophole Trader for yourself here.

USA Racing Tipster – Full Review

 

Despite having been running this website for over seven years, we have yet to find any really good tipsters on US horse racing. 

Some of this may be to do with the fact that until very recently, gambling was largely illegal in the US, other than at the actual racing tracks or in Las Vegas. Well now that individual states are allowed to legalize gambling it is starting to really take off stateside. 

This should in turn see more high quality tipsters (or “cappers” as they’re known in the US) starting to emerge on the scene. 

It was in such hope that we launched this trial of the US Horse Racing Tipster. With very strong results coming into our trial, we were intrigued to see how it got on under a live trial. 

Well we are pleased to say it didn’t disappoint, notching up a very impressive 107 points profit at advised prices. 

That was achieved with one of the highest returns on investment we have seen from a horse racing tipster at 48%.  

The advised betting bank more than trebled during our trial, which is impressive growth. 

And as you can see from the graph below, the results were very consistent and steady throughout the trial:

So all of that is pretty amazing. However, there is a “but” coming… 

Yes unfortunately with a service like this that is both very successful and betting on quite niche markets (sadly US racing markets are still fairly illiquid compared to UK ones), the prices do tend to get hammered. 

It is not unusual to prices fall dramatically after the tips are sent out. Indeed the tipster’s own long-term results show he beats the SP by an average of 175%

So realistically it will be very tough to match the results at advised prices. To get close to them you will need a good spread of bookie accounts and be very fast to act once tips are released. 

The other thing to be aware of with a service like this is you could face bookie restrictions after a period of time as the markets are quite illiquid as we say so bets like this tend to stand out. Of course, these days the bookies tend to restrict anyone who has even a suggestion of being successful, so it’s not just limited to this service but the poor and unfair practices of bookies in general. 

In any event, sadly there isn’t an option to use Betfair with this service as a number of the races aren’t covered by Betfair. In our experience prices also get moved too much on the races that are covered to make it worthwhile. 

The bottom line is you can make a good profit with this service, but will have to accept it will be somewhat below the official results. 

That in itself is worthy of praise and for that reason we are happy to award the service a PASSED rating. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections are sent out by Telegram, usually in the early evening UK time with plenty of time to get the bets on. As we say it’s a race to get the bets on so ideally you want your bookie account already open and funded ready for the tips to come through. 

Availability of prices: As above, prices are affected severely. You need to act fast and have a good spread of bookie accounts (Bet365, Skybet, PP/BF, Betfred are the main ones). 

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was solid at 26% (including placed horses) so there were  a reasonably steady rate of returns.  

Advised Betting Bank: We didn’t see a recommended betting bank but used a 50 point bank for our trial. That seems sufficient as staking is pretty low with this service and certainly it was never remotely in danger during our trial.  

Subscription costs: The current subscription costs at the time of writing are £30 per month, £75 per quarter or £120 for six months. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

We have been searching for a profitable American racing tipster for quite a while and thankfully have finally found one in the shape of the USA Racing Tipster. 

They produced an excellent 107 points profit at advised prices during our trial, which came at a phenomenal 48% ROI. 

However, due to the service’s top class results and the poor liquidity in US racing markets, sadly the prices do get affected quite significantly after tips are sent out. You need a good spread of bookie accounts and to act very quickly after tips are sent out to make the most of the service. 

In reality it will be tough to match the official results, but you should be able to still make a decent profit – we would say at least half the official results – with the appropriate set up. 

The service does not currently have a website, so if you wish to sign up or find out more, please drop us a line at info@honestbettingreviews.com

USA Racing Tipster – Results Update

13th August 2022

It’s been a good month for the USA Racing Tipster, with 9 points profit made at advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 109 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here. 

As mentioned previously the service isn’t practical to follow at Betfair SP, primarily because some of the bets aren’t available on Betfair but also because prices tend to get hammered. 

Once again it’s amazing to see how many of their doubles get the first leg but the second one just misses out, or trebles where two of the three legs come in.

In such circumstances it could be worth hedging on the final leg via exchanges if you wanted to lock in some profit, because as we say it does seem to happen a lot. 

Just a reminder that this service does not currently have a website, so if you wish to sign up or find out more, please drop us a line at info@honestbettingreviews.com

As mentioned previously the service isn’t practical to follow at Betfair SP, primarily because some of the bets aren’t available on Betfair but also because prices tend to get hammered. 

The highlight of the month was a Yankee bet that very nearly landed a huge coup, with three of the four legs coming in. If all four had come in, the combined odds were 328/1 so the returns would have been huge.

As it was three of them coming in still returned a nice 11 points profit from a 0.66 stake.

As mentioned previously the service isn’t practical to follow at Betfair SP, primarily because some of the bets aren’t available on Betfair but also because prices tend to get hammered. 

The tipster actually took June off for personal reasons so there have only been a couple of bets since our last update, but they are back in the saddle and aiming to produce the goods again now over the rest of the season. Fingers crossed they can get back to the form of old.

As mentioned previously the service isn’t practical to follow at Betfair SP, primarily because some of the bets aren’t available on Betfair but also because prices tend to get hammered. 

Although May was a tough month, they were quite unlucky with some of the selections. There was a double for example where the first leg won and the second leg went 1.01 in-running on Betfair but still lost.

There were one or two other doubles/multiples that just missed out so it could easily have been a profitable month. Anyway, that’s the way it goes with racing sometimes so it’s best not to dwell on it.

USA Racing Tipster – Results Update

4th May 2022

Not much to report once again for the American racing expert the USA Racing Tipster recently, with no change made at advised prices since our last update.

That means they are still 101 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here. 

As mentioned previously the service isn’t practical to follow at Betfair SP, primarily because some of the bets aren’t available on Betfair but also because prices tend to get hammered. 

Unfortunately it appears the tipster was sent some insulting personal messages from trolls recently. This is completely unacceptable, particularly when you consider they have been offering their services for free to members the last few months and were actually slightly up for April on their tips.

Some people it seems can’t handle any kind of losing run (in this case it was just 6 bets) and think it is okay to be abusive. We have said before and will say it again: if you can’t handle drawdowns and losing runs then this game is not for you. They happen to every tipster now and then, even the best.

In this case it’s quite ridiculous to send abusive messages given the losing run was only six tips and the tipster was actually up for the month.

The good news is that the trolls are only a small minority and the vast majority of members understand the nature of betting and that the tipster is working very hard to deliver results for members.

The tipster has had a couple of weeks off but is now back in action and raring to go, so hopefully this is the last we will hear of any trolls. As he said himself – if it is that bad, why not just leave?

USA Racing Tipster – Results Update

29th March 2022

It’s been a quiet time for American racing expert the USA Racing Tipster in recent times, with a loss of just one point made at advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 101 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here. 

They have been quite unlucky lately as they had five doubles in a row where one of the legs won but not the other, so results could easily have been better recently.

As mentioned previously the service isn’t practical to follow at Betfair SP, primarily because some of the bets aren’t available on Betfair but also because prices tend to get hammered. 

It also means you have to be very quick getting the bets on and have lots of bookie accounts available, otherwise you will struggle to obtain value.

As mentioned previously the service isn’t practical to follow at Betfair SP, primarily because some of the bets aren’t available on Betfair but also because prices tend to get hammered. 

It also means you have to be very quick getting the bets on and have lots of bookie accounts available, otherwise you will struggle to obtain value.

USA Racing Tipster – Results Update

2nd December 2021

American racing expert the USA Racing Tipster has bounced back nicely in recent times, with a profit of 10 points made at advised prices since our last update.

That puts them 95 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

As mentioned last time the service isn’t practical to follow at Betfair SP, primarily because some of the bets aren’t available on Betfair but also because prices tend to get hammered.

The highlight recently was picking the winner of the Breeders Cup Classic in the shape of Knicks Go, at a tasty price of 7/1 ante-post.

That kicked things back into gear and hopefully they can finish off the year in style and break through the 100 point barrier for our trial.

USA Racing Tipster – Results Update

8th October 2021

It’s been a bit of a tough time lately for American racing expert the USA Racing Tipster, with a loss of 9 points made at advised prices since our last update.

With the previous gains however they are still 85 points up for our proofing overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here. 

As mentioned last time the service isn’t practical to follow at Betfair SP, primarily because some of the bets aren’t available on Betfair but also because prices tend to get hammered.

September was actually their first losing month since starting tipping 45 months ago, which is a shame but the loss was only -4.75 points, so not a disaster by any means. 

They also had seven doubles were one leg won but not the other, plus two 1.01 shots that were gubbed in-running! So it could have easily been a winning month, but that is racing of course.

Hopefully the luck will turn around soon and they’ll be back to winning ways.

USA Racing Tipster – Results Update

4th September 2021

American racing expert the USA Racing Tipster continues to perform adroitly, with a profit of 7 points made at advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 94 points up for our proofing overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here. 

As mentioned last time the service isn’t practical to follow at Betfair SP, primarily because some of the bets aren’t available on Betfair but also because prices tend to get hammered.

It’s worth noting that staking on this service is fairly conservative, often 0.5 points per bet. That means the results might not look quite as good as they actually are, with a long-term ROI of over 50% being one of the best we’ve seen from any tipster.

It’s been a quiet start to September with no bets so far but they certainly don’t bet for the sake of it which is a good thing, preferring to wait for the right opportunities to present themselves. 

Please note this service does not currently have a website, so if you wish to sign up or find out more, please drop us a line at info@honestbettingreviews.com 

The costs are very reasonable given the results achieved, at £30 per month, £75 per quarter or £120 for six months.

USA Racing Tipster – Results Update

1st July 2021

In this review of the USA Racing Tipster we are including the results both from when we started this review (14th May) and from last August when we started following the service in a personal capacity. 

From last August the service is 70 points up to advised prices, whilst since 14th May it is 4 points up. 

You can view full results here. 

As mentioned when opening this review, the excellent long-term results mean prices get absolutely hammered after they are released. 

You really need to have multiple bookie accounts open, funded and ready to go as soon as the tips are posted. Thankfully there is a 10 minute warning before tips are posted so you can get yourself ready. 

Even then it can be tough to match the advised prices, so realistically you have to expect to achieve slightly less than the official P/L even with multiple bookie accounts and the fastest fingers in the west. 

As also mentioned when opening our review, the SP is a whopping 170% below the advised prices on average, meaning the service is not practical to follow at Betfair SP. In any event, quite a few of the selections are not available on Betfair at all, so that removes the option even if prices didn’t get hammered quite so much. 

Please note this service does not currently have a website, so if you wish to sign up or find out more, please drop us a line at info@honestbettingreviews.com

USA Racing Tipster – New Review

14th May 2021

Despite having been running this website for over six years, we have yet to find any really good tipsters on US horse racing. 

Some of this may be to do with the fact that until very recently, gambling was largely illegal in the US, other than on the tote at the actual racing tracks or in Las Vegas. 

However, with a recent US Supreme Court ruling having opened up the opportunity for individual states to legalize gambling in their territory, the industry is poised to explode in America.

Already established companies like William Hill have been bought out by US casino giant Caesars, and other gambling companies are partnering up with US brands to take forward sports betting in states where it has been legalized.

This should in turn see more high quality tipsters (or “cappers” as they’re known stateside) starting to emerge on the scene. 

However, the good news is there is already one very high quality US racing expert we have been following in a personal capacity for the last 10 months or so. 

They are not just one of the best US horse racing tipsters we have come across, but one of the best tipsters in general. 

Their overall results are pretty incredible:

  • +350 points profit at over 50% ROI at recommended stakes;
  • +430 points profit at over 60% ROI at level stakes.

Those are some of the highest return on investment levels we have ever seen from a tipster over an extended period (over 2 years) so are worthy of huge respect. 

They have also managed an astonishing 41/41 profitable months, which is an amazing level of consistency. 

However, such phenomenal results do come with a drawback. As you may have guessed, prices are very sensitive and you have to be very quick to snap them up. 

Indeed, the tipster actually records how much he beats the SP by and it is a whopping 170%. So this is not a service to follow if you are restricted by the bookies and reliant on using Betfair. 

In any event, this is a rare occasion where we are prepared to proof a tipster who doesn’t have their own website, so good are their results.

As such if you wish to sign up or find out more, please drop us a line at info@honestbettingreviews.com 

The subscription costs are very reasonable for a service of this quality at £30 per month, £75 per quarter or £120 for six months.

In the meantime we will kick this review off today, but will include results from when we started following the service, which was last August, so you get a fuller picture of their results. 

As ever we will report back soon with our first update.

Little Acorns Gold – Full Review

 

We originally reviewed the Little Acorns betting system back in 2017 and gave it a PASSED rating after it made 189 points profit in our trial. It is essentially a low-liability laying system for the horses on Betfair.

It is one of the longest-running betting systems, having been going for well over 15 years now and is also one of the most popular, winning our Best Horse Racing Service 2020 as voted for by our members.

Little Acorns Gold is a service that provides the selections from the Little Acorns system for you, so you don’t have to spend time finding them yourself each day. It alerts you by e-mail and/or Telegram when there is a selection.

Then all you have to do is click on Betfair and place the bet – simples!

It’s a useful addition to have in this day and age when people live such busy lives and don’t have time to study the Racing Post each day. 

Anyway, we ran an extended 14 month trial of the service, which gave us a healthy 384 selections.

For the purposes of this review we recorded results using two staking systems:

  • The staking system that Little Acorns advise, i.e. Fibonacci staking, which is where you stake 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 34, 55 points until you hit a winner and then go back to the beginning.
  • Level staking, our standard method for reviews here at HBR. 

The results were quite different depending on which staking system you used. 

Using Fibonacci staking would have made 30 points profit, which is solid enough. 

On the other hand, using level staking would have produced a 17 point loss

So the real question here is: was it the staking system that made the profit rather than the underlying betting strategy? 

Well, in terms of the results seen during this review then “yes” can really be the only answer to that question. 

However, it should be noted that the longer-term Little Acorns results do show (and indeed our own previous review showed) that the system itself has made a profit at level stakes over the long run. So it may have just suffered a downturn during our trial.

In any event, as we warned a few times during our review updates below, if you are using Fibonacci staking then you need to have a very substantial betting bank – and very strong nerves!

A full losing sequence of 11 bets would blow 177 points in total – or £1,770 if betting at £10 stakes. 

Now it is worth pointing out that we didn’t hit a full 11 bet losing sequence during our trial (the most was 9) and Andrew who runs the service says Little Acorns Gold has not hit one in the three years prior to our trial starting (the most was 10). 

However, that is not to say that one couldn’t happen. In fact, in betting we should always prepare ourselves for the worst and expect that at some stage it probably will happen. 

In which case, the fact that they only recommend a 140 point betting bank seems somewhat crazy. 

In our view, the betting bank should be at least twice the maximum wipe out (177 points), so should be at least 354 points. Let’s say 400-500 points to be on the safe side. 

There is a big danger of someone having too small a betting bank and then getting wiped out when they have to put on very hefty stakes as the losing sequence mounts up. 

There is also the psychology of putting on a total of 177 points in a row (and 55 points on the final bet) just to win back slightly more than you started with, so that is something you will need to be comfortable with and able to handle if you are using Fibonacci staking. 

It won’t be to everyone’s tastes, although at the same time many are happy enough to do this and indeed a number of Little Acorns members have been using the system for years now and have done very well out of it. 

We just want to make sure anyone signing up has a full picture of the risks involved and has a large enough betting bank to sustain the losing runs. 

If you are going in with your eyes open in that regard, then Little Acorns has demonstrated an ability to make a profit in both our original review and this one. On that basis we are willing to award it a PASSED rating.

As we say though, just make sure you are ready for a bit of a bumpy ride at times! 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections are sent out by e-mail and Telegram and can come out at any time of day when there is a suitable selection. The notifications are normally 10-15 minutes before race time, giving a reasonable amount of time to place the bets. Once you receive a notification you just need to check the price is within the stated range on Betfair (or your exchange of choice) and then place your lay bet with your appropriate staking. So it’s pretty straightforward really. 

There is just one bet per day on average, although some days there are 2-3 bets whilst others there are none. 

Availability of prices: As you are betting on the exchanges and on odds-on favourites, prices are not too much of an issue. Some selections will drift from the time the notification is sent whilst others will steam, but overall you wouldn’t expect Little Acorns members to be shifting the prices given the liquidity on favourites close to race time. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was solid at 39%, but that may be a little below the long-term average. 

Advised Betting Bank: They recommend a 140 point bank for following the service, which as discussed above does not seem sufficient to us. We would recommend a 400-500 point betting bank to withstand the maximum losing run.  

Subscription costs: The current subscription costs at the time of writing are £47+VAT per month, £119+VAT per quarter or £399+VAT a year.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Little Acorns Gold is a spin-off from the very popular and long-running Little Acorns lay betting system for the horses. 

Little Acorns Gold sends you the selections from the LA system rather than having to find them yourself. 

In our trial it made a decent 30 points profit at Fibonacci staking but a 17 point loss at advised staking. On the basis of the Fibonacci staking we are prepared to award the service a PASSED rating, but that does come with a warning to ensure you have a sufficient betting bank – and nerves of steel – if using it!

Little Acorns Gold – Results Update

6th September 2022

It’s been a mixed month for horse racing laying system Little Acorns Gold, with a loss of 5 points made at flat stakes but 4 points profit made at Fibonacci stakes since our last update.

That means it is now 16 points down for our trial overall using flat stakes but 20 points up using Fibonacci staking.

You can view full results here.

Please note for the purposes of this review we are using Betfair SP odds to record results, but if you are taking the bets when the alerts come out you will have slightly different results to us.

As remarked on last time, there is a growing divergence opening up between the results advised stakes and Fibonacci stakes, with the latter performing significantly better. 

That would suggest quite a lot of the power of this strategy comes from the staking system. As to whether you wish the follow the Fibonacci staking system that is up to you but it is essential to have a sufficient bank if you do. They suggest a 140 point bank but we would say 200-250 points would be more advisable here given the risks.

29th July 2022

It’s been a good month for horse racing laying system Little Acorns Gold, with a profit of 5 points made at flat stakes and 13 points profit made at Fibonacci stakes since our last update.

That means it is now 11 points down for our trial overall using flat stakes but 16 points up using Fibonacci staking.

Please note for the purposes of this review we are using Betfair SP odds to record results, but if you are taking the bets when the alerts come out you will have slightly different results to us.

It’s interesting to see the divergence here between advised stakes and Fibonacci stakes, with the former down and the latter a decent amount up.

That would suggest quite a lot of the power of this system comes from the staking system. As we have said before it is not for the faint-hearted, as the losing streaks can be brutal. However, with a big enough bank and the tolerance for these losing streaks, it does look like the optimal strategy here.

1st March 2022

The tough times continue unfortunately for horse racing laying system Little Acorns Gold, with a further 3 points lost at flat stakes and 1 point lost at Fibonacci stakes.

Please note for the purposes of this review we are using Betfair SP odds to record results, but if you are taking the bets when the alerts come out you will have slightly different results.

It’s been fairly quiet over the last month in terms of bet volume, but that may pick up now with quite a busy period coming up in the racing calendar.

It’s quite surprising to see this service down for our trial as it has years of profitable proofing behind it so this may just be a blip – let’s hope so anyway.

Little Acorns Gold – Results Update

25th January 2022

It’s been a tricky time for horse racing laying system Little Acorns Gold recently, with 7 points lost at flat stakes and 11 points lost at Fibonacci stakes.   

That means it is now 17 points down for our trial overall using flat stakes and 7 points down using Fibonacci staking.

You can view full results here.

Please note for the purposes of this review we are using Betfair SP odds to record results, but if you are taking the bets when the alerts come out you will have slightly different results.

It’s been quite a hair-raising ride recently if you’ve been using Fibonacci staking, as we got up to the maximum 34 point stake at one point. It was the second time that’s happened during our trial and thankfully on both occasions the 34 point lay was successful. 

It does show however why it’s crucial to have a big enough bank to withstand those losing runs in case the last bet in the Fibonacci sequence loses. They recommend a 140 point bank but really we think a 200+ point bank could be used to be on the safe side.

A full losing streak would be up to 80 points lost depending on the odds taken over the sequence. For example on the most recent run if the last bet had lost we would have lost 69 points on that sequence of lays.   

So the fact we have been close to that on two occasions shows the risk. If both had gone the other way the whole bank would now be close to being gone.

Little Acorns Gold – Results Update

13th December 2021

A slight difference for horse racing laying system Little Acorns Gold this month depending on which staking strategy you use, with 3 points lost at flat stakes but level returns at Fibonacci stakes.   

That means it is now 10 points down for our trial so far using flat stakes but is 4 points up using Fibonacci staking.

You can view full results here.

Please note for this review we are using Betfair SP odds for the purposes of recording results, but if you are taking the bets when the alerts come out you will have slightly different results.

As you can see then something of a divergence in results depending on which staking system is used. The Fibonacci isn’t to everyone’s tastes but it does seem to produce better results over the long run.  Ensuring you have a large enough bank to sustain losing runs with it is crucial though.

Little Acorns Gold – Results Update

11th November 2021

It’s been a pretty quiet month for Little Acorns Gold, with no change at flat stakes and 4 points profit at Fibonacci stakes.   

That means it is still 7 points down for our trial so far using flat stakes but is 4 points up using Fibonacci staking.

You can view full results here.

Everyone will have slightly different results on this service depending on when they access the selections and place the bets as the odds fluctuate quite a lot in the period before the race starts, which is when alerts are sent. 

For the purposes of this review we are using Betfair SP odds as a standard benchmark. So on some occasions the odds of the selection have been over 2.0 at BSP and therefore no bet, whereas if you’d got on when the selection was sent out the odds may have been below 2.0 and therefore a bet – and vice versa.

It should even itself out over the long term but just worth pointing out that results will vary slightly depending on when you access the selections and place your bets.

Little Acorns Gold – Results Update

6th September 2021

It’s been a bit of a mixed start to our trial of Little Acorns Gold, depending on which staking system you are using. 

Using flat stakes, it is 3 points down for our trial so far, whereas using the recommended Fibonacci staking it is 2 points up so far.

You can view full results here.

If using the Fibonacci staking (which is where you stake 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34 points until you hit a winner and then go back to the beginning), it’s really important to ensure you have a large enough betting bank and use staking that is appropriate to you. 

For example, at one point over the last month we saw a losing streak of 8 bets, which meant a loss at that stage of a little over 34 points. If using a 140 point bank, that would be manageable, although still a decent chunk of the bank to lose. 

Thankfully the next bet won, winning back the previous 8 bets’ losses but sometimes the full fibonacci sequence will be lost and you don’t want one of those to wipe you out.

Just a note aswell that we are using Betfair SP odds for the purposes of recording results, so our results will differ slightly from the official ones.

Everyone will have slightly different results anyway depending on when they access the selections and place the bets as the odds fluctuate quite a lot in the period before the race starts, which is when alerts are sent.

Little Acorns Gold – New Review

3rd August 2021

We are starting a new trial today of a service called Little Acorns Gold.

Many of you will have heard of the original Little Acorns betting system, which we originally reviewed back in 2017 and gave a PASSED rating to after making 189 points profit in our trial. Little Acorns is essentially a low-liability laying system for the horses on Betfair.

It is one of the longest-running betting systems, having been going for well over 10 years now and is also one of the most popular, winning our Best Horse Racing Service 2020 as voted for by our members. It has also won numerous other awards over the years.

So that’s Little Acorns, but what is Little Acorns Gold?

Well essentially it’s a service that provides the selections for Little Acorns for you, so you don’t have to spend time finding them yourself each day.

Let’s face it, often it can be difficult to set aside time to finding the selections each day, particularly with the busy lives we lead these days. And there are some days when you just forget or can’t get access to the internet or the websites you need.

So Little Acorns Gold does all the work for you – finding the selections and e-mailing/alerting you (via Telegram) when there is a selection.

Then all you have to do is click on Betfair and place the bet – simples!

The results of the system are very impressive, with over +190 points profit made since 2018.

That’s without compounding too – an example in the members’ section shows that with 2% compounding you could have turned a £1200 starting bank in 2018 into over £19,850 by March 2021!

The results are also remarkably consistent, with only four losing months over the last three and a half years.

Overall then there’s a huge amount to like about Little Acorns Gold and it’s a really good innovation to have added these alerts for people who don’t have time to find the selections themselves each day.

We will be following the selections here live on the site and recording our results as we go along on this page.

In the meantime you can check out Little Acorns Gold for yourself here.

The Racing Pundit – Full Review

 

The Racing Pundit is a horse racing tipster from the Betting Gods stable of tipsters. They cover a variety of racing from the UK, Ireland and Hong Kong.

We followed the tips for seven months, which gave us a very good sample of over 1100 bets.

It has turned out to be one of the most unusual trials we have run here at Honest Betting Reviews. 

That is because there was a huge difference between the results at advised prices and those at Betfair SP. 

At advised prices it was a real struggle, with a loss of 59 points made for our trial. 

However, at Betfair SP, they finished with a very good profit of 73 points

So that’s a massive 132 points difference between the two – one of the largest we’ve found in a trial and certainly that way round – often it’s the advised prices finishing up and the BSP ones down. 

We have listed the Betfair SP results in the summary table above as that would appear to be more useful – we can’t imagine many would be wanting to follow the service at advised prices and would be too bothered about the stats in that regard. (Also a small note here that for Hong Kong races, with no BSP available the advised price results were used).

In terms of the BSP results, they were pretty solid with a decent 30% strike rate (including placed horses) and a 7% return on investment (ROI). 

Betting purely on Betfair those are very respectable metrics – indeed any sort of profit at BSP is hard to come by so is worthy of respect. 

The big question really though is why? Why did they manage to do so much better at BSP? 

Well having looked at the results we can see quite a few mid-priced selections at odds of over 8/1, that often have higher BSPs than bookie prices.

More than that though it appears to be selections drifting out quite considerably over the course of the day. 

There was one instance just recently for example, with City Vaults being advised at odds of 3.5 at Redcar on 13th September, but winning at a BSP of 10.87. 

There were quite a few instances of horses where the BSP was more than double that of the advised odds. 

Obviously the other advantage of this is that if you were betting at the bookies and have BOG (best odds guaranteed) you would also be able to take advantage of the drift – and the BOG odds are not included in the advised price results so those would be considerable better with BOG applied.

In any event, whatever the exact reasons for the much better results at BSP, the fact is it was very welcome and something that may appeal to those whose bookie accounts have been restricted. 

Overall then we feel like this service warrants a PASSED rating, as although it made a loss at advised prices, the gains at Betfair SP are very noteworthy and do give it a special appeal for those without access to bookie accounts. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections are sent out by e-mail, usually around 8-10am UK time on the morning of racing. There are around 5 bets per day on average, which means it is a little more work than the typical horse racing service. Of course if you are just placing your bets at BSP, which would be the preferred option here, then that will speed things up quite a bit in terms of bet placement. 

Availability of prices: Contrary to most services we review here, often the prices would drift from their initial level. That means there is no rush to get bets on and worrying about losing value.

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was solid at 30% (including placed horses) so there were  a reasonably steady rate of returns.  

Advised Betting Bank: They recommend a 150 point bank for following the service, which seems reasonable to us. The staking is sensible at 1 point per bet and with a solid strike rate, 150 points should be okay, particularly if betting at BSP.  

Subscription costs: The current subscription costs at the time of writing are £0.99 + VAT for the first 10 days then £37 + VAT per month thereafter.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

This has turned out to be one of the more unusual trials we’ve run here at HBR, with The Racing Pundit delivering an impressive 73 points profit at Betfair SP, but a 59 point loss at advised prices.

That’s a pretty substantial difference and one we’ve not encountered very often in trials here. It was down in large part to horses drifting between the morning and the time of the race.

Given the importance to many bettors of having a profitable service to follow at BSP (and it being relatively rare) we feel it is fair to award this service a PASSED rating. May well be worth trying out for those who have had their bookie accounts restricted.

The Racing Pundit – Results Update

10th September 2022

It’s been a tough time lately for horse racing tipster The Racing Pundit, with a loss of 51 points made at advised prices since our last update.

That puts them 53 points down for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP they have lost 37 points since our last update but are still 40 points up for our trial overall at BSP.

The gap between the results at advised prices and BSP keeps widening and now stands at an amazing 93 points. It goes without saying then that if you are following this service, the best way – or really the only way – to do so is using Betfair SP.

The Racing Pundit – Results Update

1st July 2022

There looks to be a solid trend developing for The Racing Pundit, with the BSP results consistently outperforming the advised prices. 

At advised prices they have made 5 points profit since our last update, putting them 2 points down for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

However, at Betfair SP they made a further 21 points profit last month and are now 77 points up for our trial overall at BSP.

As we’ve remarked before it’s unusual to see the BSP results performing so much better than the advised prices, but clearly this tipster has a strategy that maximises the BSP returns which is very interesting.

The Racing Pundit – Results Update

1st July 2022

There continues to be quite a divergence between the results at advised prices and those at Betfair SP for horse racing tipster The Racing Pundit, with 5 points lost at advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 6 points down for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

However, at Betfair SP they actually made 11 points profit last month and are now 56 points up for our trial overall at BSP.

It’s quite unusual to see such a divergence and we can’t remember too many instances of a service being much more profitable at BSP than advised prices, but it will certainly be welcome for those who have had their accounts restricted by the bookies and are only able to use Betfair.

The Racing Pundit – Results Update

1st June 2022

A small step backwards for horse racing tipster The Racing Pundit over the last month, with 9 points lost at advised prices since our last update.

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

You can view full results here.

As mentioned last time though they are doing significantly better at Betfair SP, with 11 points lost since our last update but 45 points profit made for our trial overall at BSP.

It’s good to see a service that is in profit at BSP so we will keep a close eye on this to see if it remains the case throughout our trial.

The Racing Pundit – Results Update

3rd May 2022

It’s been an interesting start to our trial of horse racing tipster The Racing Pundit, with a large divergence between the results at advised prices and Betfair SP.

At advised prices, they are 8 points up so far after six weeks of our trial.

You can view full results here.

However, at Betfair SP they are an excellent 56 points up for our trial to date. So quite a divergence as we say.

Some of the difference can be explained by their biggest winner so far, Redarna at Thirsk which was recommended at 66/1 and won at a BSP of 82.88.

That only accounts for 13 points difference though, so even allowing for that one big winner the results have still been significantly better at BSP so far.

Another point to mention is that this is a very high volume service – we have already proofed over 300 bets! So it’s one that does require a little more effort to follow than a number of the services we have reviewed here.

The Racing Pundit – New Review

22nd March 2022

Today we are starting a new trial of a horse racing tipster called The Racing Pundit.

From the Betting Gods stable of tipsters, they are a relative newcomer to the tipping scene having only started in November last year.

The results so far look very good however, with over 160 points profit made to date. That represents over 200% growth of the recommended 75 point starting bank.

It has been achieved with a high strike rate of 40% and an impressive return on investment of 28%.

They tip in both flat and national hunt racing and selections are normally sent out on the morning of racing.

It’s early days as we say but it does look promising so let’s see how they get on under a live trial. 

We started receiving tips from the 17th so will record results from then. As ever results will be updated here as we go along.

In the meantime you can check out The Racing Pundit for yourself here.

Irish Cash Consortium – Full Review

 

Horse racing in Ireland is famed for its big gambles, insider knowledge and behind-the-scenes whispers. 

Over the years we’ve reviewed a few Irish racing services but haven’t come across too many successful ones unfortunately. 

At the outset of this review we were hopeful that was all about to change with the Irish Cash Consortium. 

The tips are provided by a guy called Aidan who apparently has contacts with gallops watchers, jockeys’ agents, stable insiders and a network of fellow professional punters – plus an inside line on where big gambles are being placed with the bookies.

Normally we would be a little skeptical of claims like these, but we have seen a similar service from the same source (i.e. the Matthew Walton stable) called Racing Intelligence that has proven to be of the highest quality and is one of our top recommended horse racing tipsters. 

We are pleased to say that the Irish Cash Consortium followed suit and performed excellently in our trial, smashing through the 100 point barrier and finishing with 112 points profit at advised prices at the end of our extended 12 month trial (which incorporated 640 bets). 

The gains were pretty consistent throughout the trial (with one or two peaks and troughs), as you can see below:

In terms of bank growth, the 75 point starting bank more than doubled over our trial, growing 149% which is excellent going. 

The strike rate was impressive too at 36% (including placed horses) whilst the return on investment was more than respectable at 18%

For those who have had their bookie accounts restricted, the good news is that the service also proved profitable at Betfair SP, finishing with 66 points profit

So that’s around half of the profit of advised prices but still a healthy gain in its own right. 

All in all then the Irish Cash Consortium ticks all the boxes and gets a definitive PASSED rating, with bells on!

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections are sent out by e-mail (or Telegram if you prefer), periodically throughout the morning then there is a summary e-mail usually around midday. There are around 1-2 bets per day on average, which means it is very manageable in terms of workload. 

Availability of prices: The prices often get pushed in a fair bit as Irish racing tends to not be quite as liquid as UK racing, so it’s a good idea to get your bets on as quickly as you can. However, they still made an impressive 66 points profit at BSP, so even if you can’t get the advised prices there is still good profit to be made.  

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was good at 36% (including placed horses) meaning there was a steady supply of returns during our review and the drawdowns were manageable. 

Advised Betting Bank: They recommend a 50-75 point bank for following the service, which seems reasonable to us. The staking is very sensible at 1 point per bet and with a solid strike rate, a 75 point bank should be sufficient and is what we used for this trial. If you wanted to be on the safer side, a 100 point bank could be used of course. 

Subscription costs: The current subscription costs at the time of writing are £19.95 + VAT for the first month then £39.95 + VAT per month thereafter, which is pretty reasonable given the results achieved. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

We ran an extended 12 month trial of horse racing tipster the Irish Cash Consortium and it delivered excellent results, producing 112 points profit at advised prices. That came at an ROI of 18% and a strike rate of 36%

It also performed well at Betfair SP, making 66 points profit. Suffice to say it’s a PASSED rating for this one then and great to have a profitable Irish racing service to add to the portfolio.

Irish Cash Consortium – New Review

1st October 2021

Horse racing in Ireland is famed for its big gambles, insider knowledge and behind-the-scenes whispers. 

Over the years we’ve reviewed a few Irish racing services but haven’t come across too many successful ones. 

Hopefully that’s all about to change with the latest one we have lined up to review…and that’s a service called the Irish Cash Consortium. 

The tips are provided by a guy called Aidan who apparently has contacts with gallops watchers, jockeys’ agents, stable insiders and a network of fellow professional punters – plus an inside line on where big gambles are being placed with the bookies.

Normally we would be a little skeptical of claims like these, but we have seen a similar service from the same source (i.e. the Matthew Walton stable) called Racing Intelligence that performed very well during our trial. 

The results for this service look very promising too, with 120 points profit made since starting tipping back in March. 

That has been achieved with an exceptional return on investment (ROI) of 38% and a decent strike rate of 37%. 

And for those who have been restricted by the bookies, the good news is the results have also been strong at Betfair SP, with 110 points profit made at an ROI of 34%.

All in all that makes us believe this chap may indeed have the right contacts in the Irish racing industry.

As ever though, the proof of the pudding will be in the eating so let’s see how they get on under a live trial. 

We started receiving the bets on 23rd September so will record results from then. Results will be updated here as usual as we go along.

Edwards Tips – Full Review

 

Edwards Tips is a combined golf and snooker service where you can subscribe to either or both sets of tips.

It is run by Craig Edwards, an ex-pro snooker player turned sports betting tipster. He reached the first round of the 1991 World Snooker Championship and the last 16 of the European Open, so knows his way around the baize.

That seems to have translated into a promising career as a tipster and Craig uses his in-depth knowledge of the game and players to find an edge over the markets. He also has a passion for golf betting and uses his expertise and a qualitative approach to produce his selections.

We had been following the tips in a personal capacity for a while and had been impressed with the results so decided to start a proper review here on the site last year.

That review has lasted a full 12 months, which has given us a very substantial sample of over 1200 bets. 

We are pleased to say that at the end of that extensive trial, things have gone very well indeed and Craig finished with a profit of 40 points in the end. 

As mentioned numerous times during our trial however, the staking with this service is very low. The average stake during our trial was just 0.15 points. So it might be reasonable to times the stakes by 10 to get them on par with most services we review here.

On that basis the profit so far would actually be a very impressive 400 points.

It is worth breaking that down by sport though, as there was a considerable difference in the results:

 

Sport P/L ROI Strike Rate
Golf +41 points 21% 12%
Snooker -1 point -1% 30%

 

As you can see, it is actually the golf that made up all of the profit during our trial. 

That has not always been the case historically though and prior to our trial, the snooker tips had made 150 points profit in total since Craig started tipping.

So it may have just been a dip during the last 12 months and the snooker tips may become profitable again, but is probably something just to keep an eye on for the moment.

In terms of the golf tips, it is also instructive to split them up into two separate categories, the outright tips and place tips (e.g. top 20, top 10 etc):

 

Category P/L ROI Strike Rate
Golf outright +24 points 18% 9%
Golf place +17 points 27% 18%

 

So pretty consistent across the two types of bet with the outright tips having made more profit but the place tips having better metrics. If you have the time (and bank) to follow both then it is worth doing so to maximise your profits and have some diversity. 

Overall then we have been very impressed with Edwards Tips during our 12 month trial. The golf tips really excelled and had some top class winners at prices of over 100/1. 

Craig is very helpful and always answers questions which is good to see too. 

There was the occasional issue with obtaining prices, which we deal with further below, but all in all it was a very successful trial and we are more than happy to award it a PASSED rating. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections are sent by e-mail and come out sporadically, starting on Monday for that week’s golf events. That can make it a little tricky to follow as there are lots of tips coming out at various times of day rather than having a single e-mail with the tips. However, Craig does it this way to take advantage of early prices. 

Availability of prices: In terms of prices, sometimes it can be difficult to obtain the advised prices as quite a lot of the tips are sent out on Mondays when the markets are quite thin and there are only one or two bookies (usually B365) with odds.

However, there are always exchanges to use where you can usually get the win odds if you are okay with slightly worse place terms. 

Overall we didn’t see this affecting the results too much, but was just an occasional issue where a price had gone by the time we got to put a bet on. You should be able to get close to the official results with a few bookie accounts and use of the exchanges in any event. 

Strike rate: The strike rate varied quite a bit by the type of tip, with the golf outright being fairly low at 9% but the snooker being higher at 30%.

Advised Betting Bank: Craig recommends a 100 point bank for following the service, which for once we would say is actually very conservative compared to many tipsters who use banks that are far too risky. 

He reduced his staking during covid to be on the safe side as form became a little unpredictable, but doesn’t seem to have put it back up again since. Therefore putting say 0.1pt e/w on a golf selection from a 100 point bank is a very small stake. 

We do think there’s an argument for making the stakes more uniform with other services at standard 1pt e/w etc – and then maybe having something like a 200 point bank. At the same time we appreciate Craig may not want to do so as it could mess up his results given the smaller staking he has used up until now. 

Subscription costs: The current subscription costs at the time of writing are very reasonable given the results achieved, at £34.99 per month for both services or £19.99 per month for either the golf or snooker.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Edwards Tips is a golf and snooker tipping service from a former snooker pro, Craig Edwards. We ran an extended 12 month trial and the tips performed excellently, making 40 points profit

The staking is very small at just 0.15 on average per selection, so to make it comparable with most services we review, you could times those stakes by 10 and the profit would then be 400 points.

That profit was made entirely by the golf tips during our trial however, as the snooker tips finished marginally down. 

Overall though it was a superb trial and we are very happy to award Edwards Tips a PASSED rating.

Edwards Tips – Results Update

9th July 2022

Golf & snooker service Edwards Tips continues to roll along nicely, with a profit of 1 point made since our last update.

That means he is now 35 points up for our trial overall.

You can view full results here (please note the golf and snooker results are in separate tabs).

It’s worth noting that the staking with this service is very low. The average stake so far for example is just 0.15 points. So it might be reasonable to times the stakes by 10 to get them on par with most services we review here.

On that basis the profit so far would actually be a very impressive 350 points.

Recent winners include Bobby Shelton at the BMW Pro-Am at 50/1 and Denny McCarthy for a top 10 place at the US Open at 23/1.

As mentioned last time it’s really the golf that has made all the profit during our trial, although historically the results from the snooker are also very good.

On that basis the profit so far would actually be an impressive 340 points.

There’s been a separation in terms of the golf and snooker results however, with the former delivering virtually all of the profits for our trial – 339 points versus just 1 point. So it looks like the golf tips are the ones to focus on really.

The golf profits include a massive 125/1 winner in the shape of KH Lee at the Byron Nelson a few weeks ago, plus there have been a host of placed finishes at big odds as well. Impressive stuff and long may it continue.

Just a note in case you are interested that Craig has recently published a book “Edwards Snooker Form 2022” which is available on Amazon. We have been working our way through it and found it to be an excellent resource for snooker betting, with lots of hints and strategies in there to make use of.

We saw some of them in action at the World Championships for example, where Craig made a commendable 30 points profit over the event (including qualifiers).

Things really came good for them last month when they picked out Hudson Swafford at 250/1 for the American Express tournament.

That netted over 150 points profit and underlines what we have said many times about golf betting in terms of having patience and a big betting bank so you can really enjoy these winners when they come in.

As mentioned in previous updates, the staking with this service is very low. The average stake so far for example is just 0.15 points. So it might be reasonable to times the stakes by 10 to get them on par with most services we review here. 

On that basis the profit so far would actually be an excellent 130 points.

Just to note that the figures for the service for 2021 are as follows:-

  • Overall: 2187 bets, ROI 18.71%
  • Golf Outright: 708 bets, 38.44% ROI
  • Golf Place: 512 bets, -0.64% ROI
  • Snooker: 922 bets, 15.15% ROI

So it was really the golf place that dragged the ROI down a little, in particular in the first half of the year. However, the overall stats are still very commendable with an ROI of 19% and the golf outright bets had an excellent year with a 38% ROI.

Here’s to more of that in 2022!

Edwards Tips – Results Update

12th November 2021

Something of a step backwards for golf & snooker service Edwards Tips over the last month, with a loss of 7 points made since our last update.

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

You can view full results here (please note the golf and snooker results are in separate tabs).

It’s worth noting that the staking with this service is very low. The average stake so far for example is just 0.15 points. So it might be reasonable to times the stakes by 10 to get them on par with most services we review here. 

On that basis the profit so far would actually be an excellent 120 points.

As mentioned before the volume of bets is very high with this service, particularly if you follow both the golf and snooker tips, so it’s worth bearing that in mind if you’re thinking of following the service.

Edwards Tips – Results Update

12th October 2021

No change for golf & snooker service Edwards Tips over the last month, with no net profit or loss made since our last update.

That means they are still 19 points up for our trial overall.  

You can view full results here (please note the golf and snooker results are in separate tabs).

It’s worth noting that the staking with this service is very low. The average stake so far for example is just 0.15 points. So it might be reasonable to times the stakes by 10 to get them on par with most services we review here. 

On that basis the profit so far would actually be an excellent 190 points.

There have been a few placed finishes since our last update but no big winners, although they were very close to a 50/1 winner with Adri Arnaus at the Open de Espana last week who missed a short putt for the win and then lost in a playoff.

That was pretty unlucky to say the least but that is golf betting for you. Very small margins are involved, but the luck tends to balance out in the long run (or so they say!).

Edwards Tips – Results Update

8th September 2021

It’s been an excellent start to our trial of golf & snooker service Edwards Tips, with a profit of 19 points made so far after one month. 

You can view full results here (please note the golf and snooker results are in separate tabs).

It’s worth noting that the staking with this service is very low. The average stake so far for example is just 0.15 points. So it might be reasonable to times the stakes by 10 to get them on par with most services we review here. 

On that basis the profit so far would actually be a fantastic 190 points.

That’s thanks to winners like Patrick Cantlay at 30/1, Ross McGowan who was placed at 125/1 (win price 630/1) and Top 20 at 18/1 and a number of good placed and Top 20 finishes. 

So the trial couldn’t have got off to a better start really. If you planning on joining the service we would appreciate it if you could mention you heard about Edwards from here.

Edwards Tips – New Review

7th August 2021

We are starting a new trial today of a service called Edwards Tips.

This is a combined golf and snooker service where you can subscribe to either or both sets of tips.

It is run by Craig Edwards, an ex-pro snooker player turned sports betting tipster. He reached the first round of the 1991 World Snooker Championship and the last 16 of the European Open, so knows his way around the baize.

That seems to have translated into a promising career as a tipster and Craig uses his in-depth knowledge of the game and players to find an edge over the markets. He also has a passion for golf betting and uses his expertise and a qualitative approach to produce his selections.

The results published on Craig’s website are excellent, with 746 points profit made at a return on investment of over 30%.

That includes some massive winners at prices of up to 250/1.

The breakdown in profit by sport is that the golf tips have contributed 610 points profit whilst the snooker has provided 143 points profit.

We followed the service in a personal capacity last year and can vouch that the results on the website for last year are accurate.

Craig tips in a variety of markets, including top 20 and outright on the golf, and match odds, player centuries, handicaps and other markets on the snooker.

The main snooker season is just about to get underway so it’s a good time to start a review from that point of view.

We will of course update results here as we along.

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

Racing Intelligence – Full Review

 

Every once in a while here at Honest Betting Reviews we come across a real gem of a service – something that works a little differently from the many other services we see day-in, day-out and that’s found an angle to generate consistent, long-term profit. 

Coming into our trial we felt that could be the case with Racing Intelligence – and for once we are pleased to say we weren’t disappointed!

Racing Intelligence is a little different to most other services in that it does not rely on form reading, ratings or any of the traditional ways that tipsters operate. In fact, it is not really a “tipster” at all. Instead its selections are provided by an inside man at one of the leading UK bookmakers who gets to see where all the “smart money” is being placed for that day’s racing. 

He gets to see where the big gambles are going, the professional money is being placed and where there is likely to be significant value. That info is then passed straight on to members of the service.

Normally we would be skeptical of such claims of “inside info” but on this occasion we have no doubt whatsoever this is the real deal.

Not only have we seen the results prior to our trial proofed by a reputable source elsewhere, which showed 672 points profit coming into our review, but now we have six months of own proofed results and wow have we been impressed!

A superb 192 points profit was made at advised prices during our six-month trial, which represents a very nearly doubling of the advised betting bank of 200 points. 

As you can see from the profit graph below, they were never really in deficit and built strongly over the middle part of the trial with another burst at the end:-

Those results were achieved with a very good strike rate of 40% (including placed horses) and a commendable ROI of 19%. 

At Betfair SP the results were solid too, with a nice 76 points profit made during our trial. 

The consistency is excellent too, with 10 out of 12 months this year having been profitable and 23 out of 30 months overall having made a profit.  

So we have no hesitation in awarding this service a PASSED rating and giving it our first five star award for some time. 

As we say, we like that they approach betting from a different angle of looking at where the smart money is being placed rather than typical form study and it’s clear this information has huge value. 

It’s credit to Matthew Walton (who runs the service) for having found this source of information and we can only hope both the source and Matthew continue sharing the info for a long time to come!

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The tips are sent out during morning of racing and come in individually as the information is received, as it is obviously “hot off the press” so is passed on straight away for members to snap up the value. That means you’ll sometimes get three or four e-mails (or texts if you choose that option) during the morning at various times, with Matthew then summarising the day’s bets in one final e-mail, usually around lunchtime or shortly before racing starts. 

With an average of 1-2 bets per day following the service isn’t too onerous by any means. 

Availability of prices: Prices do tend to get pushed in so we recommend taking early prices if you can, but as stated above the service is still profitable at BSP so is practical to follow even if you don’t have bookie accounts.  

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 40% (including placed horses) which is more than acceptable and is very close to the long-term strike rate for the service of 39%. 

Advised Betting Bank: A 200 point bank is recommended for following the service which seems a reasonable amount to us and was certainly never in jeopardy at any stage of our trial. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are high, but that is understandable given the quality of information being received and it also helps protect prices for members. The subscription costs are £58.20 for the first month then £97+VAT per month after that.

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

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

With a profit of 192 points made at advised prices during our six month trial, to go with the profits stacked up previously (which have been proofed by a reputable source elsewhere), Racing Intelligence has made a total of over 850 points profit betting each-way or over 1,100 points profit if betting win-only since starting up two and a half years ago.

Those are outstanding results and we are more than happy to award this a PASSED rating and to place it right towards the very top of our list of recommended horse racing services.

The subscription costs are high so you will need a decent-sized bank to make it worthwhile, but if you have that then this really is a service to get on board with and start profiting from the invaluable info it provides.

And the good news is we’ve managed to negotiate an exclusive discount for HBR readers of 50% off the first month’s subscription which you can get here.

Racing Intelligence – Results Update

30th November 2019

A little bit of a correction for Racing Intelligence this month, with a loss of 14 points made at advised prices since our last update.

The good news though is that they are still 153 points up at advised prices for our trial overall after the excellent previous results.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP they have lost 8 points since our last update but are still 65 points up for our trial overall.

As Matthew points out on the emails, it is important to keep a long-term mindset and not let a small drawdown this month detract from the long-term picture which has been very good indeed.

Racing Intelligence – Results Update

28th October 2019

It’s been a cracking time for Racing Intelligence since our last update, with a whopping 109 points profit made at advised prices over the last five weeks. 

That means they are now an excellent 167 points up for our trial overall at advised prices. 

You can view full results here.

Things have also been progressing well at BSP, with another 73 points profit made since our last update and 84 points profit made for our trial overall. 

It’s great to see a service living up to its pre-trial billing and delivering some excellent results under live conditions. This is looking like a really top service in the making.

Racing Intelligence – Results Update

19th September 2019

It’s been a solid month for Racing Intelligence, with 9 points profit made at advised prices since our last update. 

That means they are now 58 points up for our trial overall at advised prices. 

You can view full results here.

The good news is they are now up at Betfair SP for our review aswell, with 17 points made since our last update and 11 points profit made for our trial overall.  

It’s been a bit up and down during the review in truth, with a high of 87 points up followed by dropping down to just 3 points up, and then bouncing back again to 58 points up. For those with an appropriate betting bank and a long-term mindset that wouldn’t have been a problem, but unfortunately for those who dropped out after the losing run they have now missed out on the subsequent profits. 

Anyway, as we say overall the results have been good so let’s look for them to kick on from here.

Racing Intelligence – Results Update

15th August 2019

More profits for Racing Intelligence since our last update, with another 19 points profit added at advised prices over the past month. 

That means they are now 49 points up for our trial overall at advised prices. 

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP it continues to be a bit more of a struggle. Although a profit of 2 points was made since our last update, they are still 6 points down at BSP for our trial overall. 

Their long term BSP results are very good so this may just be a small blip but we will keep an eye on it and hopefully they will have moved into profit at Betfair SP aswell by the time of our next update.

Racing Intelligence – Results Update

10th July 2019

It’s been a strong start to our trial of Racing Intelligence, with a profit of 30 points made so far to advised prices after one month.

At Betfair SP things haven’t been quite as good, with a loss of 8 points made for our trial so far.

Just a note that the Racing Intelligence spy has been working away for the past 10 days, this has meant it’s been very quiet on the betting front lately but he is due to return shortly so we expect the pace to pick up next week. 

Still, a good start all in all from this service.

Racing Intelligence – New Review

10th June 2019

Today we are looking at a new racing service called Racing Intelligence and we have to say we are more than intrigued by its proposition. 

Whilst regular readers will know we are generally sceptical of tipsters claiming they have special access to “inside info,” this one comes with an interesting twist on that idea – and has the results to back it up.

Normally we dismiss talk of “inside info” because frankly despite having seen dozens of tipsters claim they have access to it, we are yet to see a single one of those tipsters actually deliver a long-term profit. In short most of it is just marketing BS. 

Those tipsters who do make a consistent profit – like Quentin Franks, the Bet Alchemist and so on – do so due to hours of hard work and diligence in how they study races and form. 

In the case of this tipster however, the “inside info” they claim to use is a little different – it is actually the bookies’ inside info. 

So rather than looking to gather information from stables, trainers and so on, they are apparently able to gather intell directly from inside a bookie, as they work for one.

Inside this bookie they see the winning accounts of their elite customers and which bets those customers are placing – referred to as “markers” in the industry  – and then pass on those bets to subscribers to place themselves.

The results of the service – which have been proofed elsewhere – are absolutely top-notch and suggest this approach is highly effective. 

Since starting up two years ago they have made a superb 672 points profit at general bookies’ prices if betting each-way and an incredible 933 points profit if betting win-only. 

Those have been achieved with returns on investment of 24% and 34% respectively,  which is top-class stuff. 

In addition they have demonstrated a remarkable level of consistency, with 19 of their 24 months so far having been profitable. 

The really good news though is that the service is even profitable at Betfair SP, with a profit of 364 points made betting win and place on the exchange and 571 points if betting win-only at BSP.

Those are the some of the best BSP results we have seen and if they can be repeated during a live trial will mean this service may well achieve the “holy-grail” of being able to generate a substantial profit at Betfair.

That remains to be seen of course so we will reserve our judgement until we have seen the service in action and what kind of results it achieves. 

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

In the meantime you can check out Racing Intelligence for yourself here.

20 Minute System – Full Review

 

The 20 Minute System is a piece of software that automatically scans the bookmaker and Betfair markets to find value on the each-way golf markets.

It is the latest system from perennial systems developer Mike Cruickshank, who long-term followers will know we are big fans of. 

Mike was the original matched betting guru, releasing the excellent Bonus Bagging and then Profit Maximiser packages, giving punters the tools to match-bet successfully and finally put one over on the bookies. Those systems were then copied by countless other system developers.

Over the years Mike has continued to innovate however and with this latest system he has turned his eye to the niche of each-way golf betting. With the bookies offering top 8 for the place – and even top 10 or 11 in majors – there is the potential for real value these days on the golf markets.

The trick of course is in finding the specific players who represent value and that is what the 20 Minute System aims to do. It scans the markets to identify those instances where the place part of the bet in particular represents value, taking into account the win and place odds on Betfair as a point of comparison.

The system is purely markets-based and does not consider form or stats like some of the other golf strategies we have reviewed here. It is actually based on the same concepts as the Each-Way Sniper software for horse racing, which we have reviewed – and passed – here at HBR.

In terms of using the software, it’s pretty simple. Just log on – Tuesdays and Wednesdays are best – check the software as to whether it has any selections, then go and place the bets.

Here is an example from the software – with the player(s), bookie and odds recommended. The number on the left is the EV rating and it is recommended to only take selections with a rating over 110 (which means 10% value).

Some weeks, particularly for the majors, there are a lot of selections so it can took longer than 20 minutes to place the bets. On other quieter weeks though there can be just a handful and it can take less. Either way it isn’t a difficult system to use and in reality whether it’s 20 minutes per week or 30-40, the workload is pretty low.

Anyway, all that is great in theory but it means nothing if the results don’t stack up. Fortunately though, after a nine month trial we are pleased to say that the results certainly did stack up – very well in fact! 

Yes, with a superb 302 points profit made during our trial, it couldn’t have gone much better really.

That was achieved with a strike rate of 10%, which isn’t unusual for golf services, but a whopping return on investment of 54%, one of the best we’ve ever seen in a trial.

There were a host of winners and placed selections at huge odds during our review, including:-

  • Collin Morikawa – WON the Open Championship @ 33/1
  • Abraham Ancer – WON the WGC Fedex St Jude @ 45/1
  • Kiradech Aphibarnrat – PLACED at the BMW PGA @ 175/1
  • Keith Mitchell – PLACED at the CJ Cup @ 250/1
  • James Morrison – PLACED at the Andalucia Masters @ 250/1
  • Thriston Lawrence – WON the Joburg Open @ 200/1
  • Luke List – WON the Farmers Insurance Open @ 80/1
  • Russell Knox – PLACED at the Players Championship @ 225/1
  • Scottie Scheffler – WON the Masters @ 18/1

As you can see then, some fantastic winners and placed selection throughout the trial at very juicy odds.

We haven’t included the Betfair results here as they are difficult to track, especially in the place market as Betfair offer top 5 and 10 rather than 7/8 places, but certainly on the win part of the bet you can normally beat the bookies’ odds. On the 100/1+ selections you can often get significantly better odds at Betfair.

Balancing the two parts out we imagine you would get similar results overall using Betfair, although as we say having not recorded the results we cannot be sure about that.

Anyway, all in all it’s been a very successful trial for the 20 Minute System and it’s a clear PASSED rating from us.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections are available via logging in to the 20 Minute System software on Tuesday and Wednesday. It shouldn’t take too long to place the selections – sometimes it’s over 20 minutes on major weeks but not normally much longer than that.

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

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 10%, which is quite low in general terms but not unusual for a golf service, which often have low strike rates due to the odds tipped at.

Advised Betting Bank: A 400 point betting bank is recommended for the service which seems very much adequate to us.

Subscription costs: The current subscription costs are £99 + VAT for 12 months.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Once again Mike Cruickshank smashes it out the park (or should we say off the tee…) with another superb betting system.

This one, which is specifically for the each-way markets in golf, made a fantastic 302 points profit at a huge ROI of 54%, one of the highest ever in a trial here at HBR.

So it’s no surprise that it’s a conclusive PASSED rating for the 20 Minute System and a full five stars. Grab it while you can.

It was inevitable there would be a bit of a drop at some point as the system couldn’t go on churning out huge profits forever – golf betting is inherently very volatile as we often say.

Hopefully it will just be a small blip though and we’ll be back to winning ways again soon.

The system landed yet another winner last weekend with Luke List capturing the Farmers Insurance Open at 80/1.

That’s on top of 200/1, 45/1 and 33/1 winners already during our trial and numerous placed finishes at over 100/1 (and a few over 200/1).

Quite remarkable stuff really and this is well on course to be one of our best trials ever.

Most of that profit came from Thirston Lawrence winning the Joburg Open at a huge 200/1, much to the delight of members.

There have been some huge priced selections that have placed over the last month, including Keith Mitchell and James Morrison, both at 250/1. Even just the place part of that bet is like a big winner at those odds.

Just a note that our reviewer missed a couple of events due to personal circumstances so members able to take the bets for those events will have slightly different results to us.

Anyway, good to see the continued success here, the 20 Minute System is doing exactly what it says on the tin!

There have been a few tasty place finishes recently including at prices of 175/1 for Kiradech Aphibarnrat, 100/1 for Darius van Driel and 125/1 for Patrick Rodgers (those prices are the win prices so the place part is obviously a quarter or fifth of that).

Hopefully more of that to come…plus a winner or two would be great!

Just a reminder that this is a piece of software that automatically scans the bookmaker and Betfair markets to find value on the each-way golf markets. 

The sole success over the last month was Abraham Ancer at the WGC Fedex event at odds of 45/1. 

Other than that there haven’t been any winners or placed finishes, but that isn’t unusual for golf services. The main thing is that it’s well up for our trial to date.

20 Minute System – Results Update

30th July 2021

It’s been a good start to our trial of golf betting system the 20 Minute System, with a profit of 28 points made so far.

You can view full results here.

Just a reminder that this is a piece of software that automatically scans the bookmaker and Betfair markets to find value on the each-way golf markets. 

You have to put the bets on yourself and all bets are placed with the bookies – Betfair is used just as a point of comparison by the software.

It’s interesting that even though it picked the winner for the Open Championship in Collin Morikawa at 33/1 and had a number of other placed finishes, it still made a small loss for the event.

That’s because the software found a whopping 38 selections for the Open, as for the majors the bookies offer extra places up to 11 positions, which is huge value for the punter (and we understand a loss-leader for the bookies). 

That’s not normal and for a bog-standard PGA Tour event you can expect a much smaller number of selections. The following week for example was the 3M Open and there were only four selections. Thankfully one of them was Keith Mitchell at 200/1 who managed a full place payout.

Anyway, nice to see the system working as advertised so far.

20 Minute System – New Review

12th July 2021

We are starting a new trial today of a betting strategy called The 20 Minute System. 

This is the latest system from perennial systems developer Mike Cruickshank, who as long-term followers will know we are big fans of. 

Mike was the original matched betting guru, releasing the excellent Bonus Bagging and then Profit Maximiser, giving punters the tools to match-bet successfully and finally put one over on the bookies. Those systems were then copied by countless other system developers.

Mike has gone on to develop more and more sophisticated systems however, most notably his Each Way Sniper Auto Software. It’s an ingenious piece of software that places bets for you automatically with the bookies. You can read our full review of that one here.

His latest system as we say is The 20 Minute System, which is a golf system. It has reportedly made a very impressive 519 points profit in 18 months at one-point level stakes, which is excellent stuff.

At £20 per bet that would equate to £10,380 profit. 

The “20 minutes” refers to the time it supposedly takes to place the bets each week, which is something we like the sound of. That’s one of the benefits of golf betting in that with only two tournaments per week normally it can be a fairly low-workload sport to bet on. 

You will need bookie accounts to follow this system – and preferably a few of them. The good news though is that supposedly you can use gubbed accounts. That may be because you can follow the system with small £1 stakes and still make a decent profit. 

In any event, we will learn more as we get into the trial and start using the system ourselves. We will look to get going next week, which will be good timing as it happens to be the Open Championship! 

Anyway, as ever we will update results here as we go along.

In the meantime you can check out The 20 Minute System for yourself here.

Lucrative MMA Betting Tipster – Full Review

 

The sport of MMA (mixed martial arts) is becoming more popular these days, with big fights in the UFC receiving big audiences and some of the stars becoming celebrities. 

With this popularity has of course come more betting interest and most bookies now price up markets for the big fights. 

And of course, with there being a decent amount of betting, there are now some budding new tipsters emerging in the field. 

One such tipster we have just completed a review of is the Lucrative MMA Betting Tipster.

We ended up following this tipster for 24 months in total, which is one of the longest reviews we have conducted here at HBR.

Partly that was because we were following the tips in a personal capacity before launching the formal review.

In any event, it gave us a very good sample size of over 820 bets for the review.

And over that time the results stood up very well, with 159 points profit being made in total.

As you can see from the graph below, it was very steady progress throughout the trial, with only a slight dip towards the end (but signs of a turnaround 0ver the last few bets):

The strike rate was very healthy at 44% and the return on investment (ROI) solid at 10%.

They also have some YouTube content available, which you can check out here.

Overall then it’s been a very successful trial and we are happy to award the Lucrative MMA Betting Tipster a PASSED rating.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The tips are available through logging into the website and are generally posted early in the week (Monday and Tuesday) with some other bets coming later in the week.

Availability of prices: Prices are generally available, although on some of the more niche markets they can be affected so it’s helpful to have a variety of bookie accounts and to act quickly upon tips being posted.

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 44%, which is very solid and meant a steady stream of winners throughout the trial.

Advised Betting Bank: We couldn’t see a recommended betting bank for the service but used a 150 point bank for the purposes of our trial. Staking is quite variable, ranging from 0.1 points all the way up to 11 points, so that is something to be aware of. The average stake is 1.8 points though so a 150 point bank with the high strike rate seems reasonable to us.

Subscription costs: The subscription costs at the time of writing are $96 per month, $279 per quarter, $499 for six months or $759 per year. Those are a little on the high side, although in the MMA space are not unusual and in fact cheaper than some alternatives.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

We ran an extended 24 month trial of the Lucrative MMA Betting Tipster, and it performed very well, producing 159 points profit in total. 

That was achieved with a strong strike rate of 44% and a solid ROI of 10%. We are happy to award the service a PASSED rating therefore and is well worth checking out if you are a fan of MMA – or even if you’re not!

Lucrative MMA Betting Tipster – New Review

28th October 2020

The sport of MMA (mixed martial arts) is becoming more popular these days, with big fights in the UFC receiving big audiences and some of the stars becoming celebrities. 

With this popularity has of course come more betting interest and most bookies now price up markets for the big fights. 

And of course, with there being a decent amount of betting, there are now some promising tipsters emerging in the field. 

We are looking at one such tipster today, namely the Lucrative MMA Betting Tipster

This is a service that has been running for just over a year now and has amassed some very impressive results with 265 points profit made to date.

That has been achieved with an excellent return on investment of 27% and a high strike rate of 53%, so over half of the bets so far have been winners. 

We have actually been receiving the tips since January so can verify those results. There are detailed write-ups for the tips from which you can see that James, who runs the service, has a great knowledge of MMA. 

So we will formally kick off our review today but will include results from when we started receiving the tips. Updates will be posted here as we go along as usual.

In the meantime you can check out the Lucrative MMA Betting Tipster for yourself here.
