Geek – One who passionately engages in one or more things to extreme levels.
That’s the definition of a geek according to Urban Dictionary and seems about right to us.
Our next trial is of a service which actually refers to themselves as a geek – The Basketball Geek to be specific – and given their results, the name appears quite apt.
This is clearly someone who “passionately engages in one or more things to extreme levels” – and that is betting on basketball!
The results are testament to their knowledge and engagement with the sport, with a profit of over 190 points made since they started proofing to Betting Gods in November 2019.
That has been achieved with a more-than-decent ROI of 19% and an excellent strike rate of 56%, meaning a high proportion of the bets so far have been winners.
Most impressive of all, the advised betting bank of 75 points would have grown by over 260%, which means a substantial return on capital to date.
In terms of consistency that looks rock solid as well, with all eight months being profitable so far.
We can’t say we’ve bet on basketball much over the years but as we always say, if a service can make a profit we don’t really mind what it bets on – it could be tiddlywinks for all we care! If it is making a consistent profit then that’s all we’re looking for really.
It will make a nice change to try out a new sport in many ways so we are looking forward to testing this service out. We started receiving tips on 14th July so will record results from then. Check back here for regular updates on how things are going.
