There are two main things to note from the progress of Rod’s Runners so far.
The first is that given the fairly horrendous results experienced by the service from the start of our trial in mid-September until the end of October, most punters would have abandoned the service at that point.
At the end of October we were over 170 points down to advised prices and over 250 points down at Betfair SP.
With a bank of 250 points advised for the service, that would actually be the entire bank gone if you were backing at Betfair SP.
So as we say, the vast majority of punters would have long left the service by that point.
However, in a remarkable turnaround, Rod has managed to recover all the losses at advised prices and is now level at advised prices.
At Betfair SP he has recovered to 106 points down.
So the second point is that any punters who did stick with Rod would have been rewarded by winning back most, if not all, of their losses.
It shows you therefore the importance of taking a long-term approach and having a big enough betting bank.
For most gamblers it would be simply too much to stomach a 150-250 point loss and that is understandable. But the more hardy ones can be rewarded sometimes as we have seen here.
In any event, it seems clear that the service is not practical to follow at Betfair SP so only those with access to multiple bookie accounts should consider this service.
Hopefully the positive run will have continued by the time of our next update.
Rod’s Runners – Results Update
6th October 2017
It’s been a thoroughly rotten start to our trial of Rod’s Runners, which has lost a rather shocking 56 points so far to advised prices.
The only small piece of good news so far is that we are doing a little better at Betfair SP than at advised prices, with 51 points lost so far.
This is a very high volume service, with over 300 bets placed so far after just three weeks, so it is easy to see how losses (and conversely profits) can stack up very quickly.
Hopefully by the time of our next update we will be able to report that it is profits rather than losses that are stacking up.
Rod’s Runners – New Review
14th September 2017
Today we are commencing a new trial of a horse racing tipster here at Honest Betting Reviews.
The service in question is called Rod’s Runners and comes from the reputable Betting Gods stable of tipsters.
Having followed horse racing since his days at university, Rod has apparently gone from amateur punter to professional gambler after spending years perfecting his craft and spends many hours each day studying the form.
We are particularly excited by this trial as the results achieved to date look pretty outstanding.
Since launching at the beginning of May, Rod’s tips have made a whopping £950 per month profit to just £10 stakes!
That is pretty incredible and although over a short period of time, is one of the highest points totals we have ever seen.
The return on investment of the tips so far is over 25% which is excellent going. The strike rate is quite low at a tad over 15%, which indicates this is a service that looks for long-odds winners.
And so the results confirm this, with plenty of winners at 20/1+
What is interesting to us about that is the possibility of good results being achievable at Betfair SP, since at long odds you tend to get better value at BSP.
Of course if the tips become really popular then this may become negated somewhat.
In any event, it is worth investigating under a live trial and to see how prices hold up, so we will kick off a three month trial of this asap.
Just a warning that it is quite a high volume service, with 5-10 bets per day, so be ready for that if you do sign up.
Anyway, should be an interesting trial either way and we are keen to get going on this. Results will be posted here periodically.
