Serve It Up Tennis Tips Final Review


It has been a somewhat disappointing trial for Serve It Up Tennis Tips, who have ended up 16 points down after 5 months of tipping.

That represents a 31% bank loss and -7% return on investment, which are not quite up to the standard we have come to expect of Betting Gods services in general.

But more worrying for us was the considerable drawdown experienced during the trial. Here are the results in graph format:

Serve It Up Tennis Tips Profit Graph

Serve It Up Tennis Tips Results Graph


As you can see on the graph, at one point we were 46 points down and with a 50 point bank advised, that represents a 92% loss of the bank.

This is far worse than any service should endure and we have to say again highlights an issue with the size of betting banks being advised by some tipsters.

For a service that tips in up to 10 point unit stakes, 50 points was frankly never going to be enough. We think a minimum 150 point bank should be advised, given the drawdown experienced during the trial plus the unit staking.

We do feel we have to come down hard on services that don’t advise sufficient bank sizes to cover their own drawdowns, so this service gets a failed rating from us unfortunately.


Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Good – there are only around 5 bets per week so minimal work is involved and with tennis being a very liquid market on Betfair, there was not much of a problem getting the bets on. 

Availability of prices: Good – as above, prices were generally freely available via either Betfair or the bookies. However, sometimes prices were not given with tips and the results published on the website were not always correctly updated.

Strike rate: At just 29%, the strike rate was somewhat below what would be required for the service to make a profit when tipping at these odds.

Advised Betting Bank: A 50 point bank was advised but clearly this was not enough as we were 46 points down at one stage. We would suggest a bank of at least 150 points.

Subscription costs: £19.95/month, £49.95/quarter or £129.95 for life



Any service that loses 92% of its advised bank is not one many people are going to stick with and for this reason alone, we feel we have to give a failed rating to Serve It Up Tennis Tips.

The fact that they tip up to 10 points on some bets means 50 points was never going to be a big enough bank and this was borne out during the trial.

However, even leaving bank size issues aside, the end results for the trial were disappointing too, with a 31% loss of the bank and -7% ROI. 

We have come to expect very high standards from Betting Gods services and unfortunately this one has not quite measured up.

So our search for a winning tennis tipster goes on…



Results Update – Serve It Up Tennis Tips

24th August 2015 

We now have over three months of results for Serve It Up Tennis Tips and whilst that would normally be enough for us to write a final review, we only have 72 bets so far and we normally need at least 100 to draw any conclusions.

So we will run the review for another month, which given that will take in the US Open, should give us enough bets to take us over the 100 mark.

Anyway, how have things been going so far?

Well things were going fairly badly up until last week, with the service 44 points down.

However, a nice 5 point each-way bet on Roger Federer to win the Cincinnati Masters at 11/2 snaffled up 41 points profit and has turned things right around.

You can view full results here.

That has almost put things back at square one, putting the service at -5 points in total. 

Hopefully things can continue in positive fashion through the US Open and the remainder of the trial.



Results Update – Serve It Up Tennis Tips

29th July 2015 

It is now just over two months into our trial of Serve It Up Tennis Tips, so time for a further update.

Last time we reported, during Wimbledon, we were 19 point down. So have things picked up since then?

Well unfortunately, despite a monster 10 point bet on Djokovic to win Wimbledon that came in, we have actually fallen further into the red and are now 28 points down.

You can view full results here.

To be fair to them, that is after a very low volume of bets, as we have only had 49 bets so far. 

So we think it would be fair to ensure we have at least 100 bets under our belt before we draw any conclusions on this service – or any other for that matter.

We will continue with regular updates on this one – let’s hope it can turn things around and start serving up some ace tips.


Results Update – Serve It Up Tennis Tips

7th July 2015 

We are about six weeks into our trial of Serve It Up Tennis Tips and as we are in the midst Wimbledon, we thought it would be a good time for an update.

Unfortunately it is not great news at this point, as they are 19 points down so far.

However, that is after a very low number of bets, with only 30 bets advised so far so it is too early to pass judgement really.

Here are the results so far.

They do have a few bets still in play for Wimbledon, including a chunky 10 point win bet on Djokovic, so if that comes in it will help to get things back on track.

Although I suppose if you are a fan of Andy Murray you might be hoping it doesn’t! 🙂

Anyway, let’s see how things get on in the second half of the trial and hopefully we will see results pick up.

New Review 22nd May 2015

With the French Open just about to get underway at Roland Garros, it seems like the ideal time to start a new trial of a tennis tipster. 

So we are taking a look at Serve It Up Tennis Tips from the Betting Gods stable. 

You can check out the service here.

Since the service started in January they have amassed over 60 points profit at an amazing 50% ROI. 

They provide both outright tournament tips and match bets and do seem quite selective in their
tips, not just throwing out selections for the sake of it.

Some of their notable winners include Wawrinka to win the ATP Rotterdam at 9/2, Federer to win in Dubai at 10/3 and in Brisbane at evens. 

Stakes range between 1 and 10 points and they are not afraid to lay down the maximum 10 points when it was warranted, as they did on Djokovic for example at the ATP Miami at 10/11 (which won).

A 50 point betting bank is advised which hopefully will be enough to cover us for the trial.

We will undertake our usual three month trial and will report back at the end with our final review as well as with updates along the way.
