Today we are starting a trial of a new service called Sports Betting Pays which is run by a guy called James Pacheco.
James worked at Betfair for nine years, when he featured on their sports radio station and was the founding Editor of Betting.Betfair, the excellent website that specialises in discussing betting opportunities on Betfair markets.
He has now left the bookmaker industry and is a full time sports bettor, specialising in football and cricket.
Apparently James has been betting on Football markets for 20 years and he typically bets on the teams that he watches. He takes stats into account but also his expert eye to supplement the raw numbers.
In terms of his cricket betting, he spent two years ghostwriting a Betfair column for former England captain Michael Vaughan. This knowledge along with detailed stats and 1,000’s of hours watching matches he is able to find value in the markets he bets in.
James proofed his bets for 7 months at the Betting School Insiders Club, where they were available to all members for free. And once a week at the Daily Punt website, where again they were available to thousands of readers for free.
His tips resulted in a fully proofed strike rate of 40.6%, an ROI of 29% and a profit of £910, which are pretty commendable numbers.
Whether those results can be repeated under a live trial here at Honest Betting Reviews remains to be seen, but it certainly looks promising.
So without further ado we will kick off our review and will report back soon on how things are going for James.
