Tennis Trading League Final Review
This is the first tennis tipster we have reviewed here at Honest Betting Reviews and unfortunately it has hit one too many “unforced errors” over the trial.
The first thing to point out is that we were reviewing the betting tips provided by the service rather than their trading system.
With a loss of just over 9 points, it has been a somewhat disappointing trial and we do not feel on this basis we can recommend the tipping aspect of the service.
That loss of 9 points represents a 46% reduction in the bank which is quite a significant drawdown.
They do not appear to publish their past results so it is difficult to gauge if the tips have been profitable in the longer term either. Normally if results are positive then services shout it from the rooftops, but we cannot know for sure either way here.
So our search for a profitable tennis tipster goes on – perhaps Serve It Up Tennis Tips will produce the goods.
Here are the results in graph format anyway:
As you can see, things never really got going early on and went into minus territory around half way through and didn’t recover from there.
Ease of use: Good – there are on average 1.5 bets per day. The tips are sent by e-mail at 8-9 am UK time and prices are given based on Betfair prices. It doesn’t take long to place the bets.
Availability of prices: Prices were generally freely available and we did not have too many problems matching the advised prices. The good thing is that tennis markets are very liquid on Betfair so even with a large number of followers, the tips would be unlikely to affect prices too much.
Strike rate: The strike rate during the trial was 57%, but with average odds of around 1.7 you would need the strike rate to be higher to generate a profit.
Advised Betting Bank: The advised staking is 5% on each tip, so that works out at a 20 point bank. That unfortunately meant a 46% loss of the bank during our trial.
Subscription costs: The costs are very reasonable at £5 per week, £12 per month or £129 for lifetime membership.
OVERALL VERDICT: FAILED
Unfortunately with a 46% loss of the bank, we are unable to recommend Tennis Trading League’s betting tips.
And with past results not published, we can’t see anything to suggest that this was just a blip and that results are normally much better.
So our search for a winning tennis tipster goes on, much like Mr Federer’s search for an 18th grand slam title.
Time for some Tennis Betting Tips?
New review 21st April 2015
With the sun shining and the Summer seemingly just around the corner, I thought it would be a good time to commence a review of a service offering tennis betting tips.
After all, the French Open is coming up soon and then before you know it, we will all be munching strawberries and cream and enjoying the wonders of Wimbledon.
So today we are commencing a review of Patrick Ross’s Tennis Trading League. This is a service sending out daily tennis betting tips for the main tennis circuits in both the men’s and women’s games.
The service is very reasonably priced with various packages available – £7 per week, £15 per month (with £1 for the first month) or £40 for the first year and £117 for each year after that, if you like the long term options.
As well as betting tips, there are other options available. You can also get Patrick’s tennis trading tips and strategies, at extra cost to the main betting tips. For this review we will be sticking to just the betting tips to keep things manageable.
I can’t seem to find a full list of results on the website which is a little unusual, but of course this doesn’t mean the site isn’t successful – time well tell! We will be running our usual three month review which should take us nicely through the clay court season, taking in Roland Garros and then on to the grass court season and Wimbledon.
Who knows, we may even see another Andy Murray grand slam triumph during our trial.
Patrick has been running the service for a number of years and boasts quotes from lots of happy members, so let’s hope I am one such member come the end of the review 🙂
