It is over 3 years since I first looked at a strategy from Chris and it is fair to say they have all done what they claimed and as the series has progressed they have become more and more simple to operate. The latest continues that theme and is a straightforward back betting system operating in the football goals markets. There is no trading required to see the system profitable but those who have to watch matches involving their bets may be able to cash out if it looks as though the initial bet will fail and thus reduce any losses.
A quick word on Chris’ refund policy – there is no refund available once you have purchased as the information is in your knowledge from that point. This is made clear on the marketing page so if you are not prepared to risk £37 then do not buy.
As ever there is a comprehensive video covering the theory behind the strategy and how it should be applied and absolutely no prior knowledge is assumed so you could use this even if you do not have a clue what football might be. As the system is so simple there is not too much I can say here without giving things away. When a bet is identified a 1 point back stake is advised based on a 20 point bank. There are 2 options for bets, the second offering higher odds.
Chris has found that prediction sites for soccer are a rich source of potential leads to profitable betting and Football Money Maker continues in that tradition. One specific site is used to examine forecast scores and potential goals scored with the criteria for a match becoming a bet simple to find. Once found the odds in the relevant goals markets on Betfair are checked and assuming a minimum of 1.05 a bet may be placed and that is it. The selections may be made on the day or even the day before matches but you may need to wait until nearer kick off for liquidity to build up in some of the less well known leagues. On a busy Saturday it may take 15 minutes to find all the qualifiers – each selection would take under 60 seconds if done individually and in practice you will find ways of speeding up the process.
I have been testing the strategy for a full month now and despite the inevitable International break have found 253 matches that I would place bets on – there could well be more if you are prepared to look in the more obscure leagues and this is a personal choice. For this reason all users are likely to have varying results. I have been fairly conservative in my selections generally not going below the second tier in any country – with an average of around 10 games per day this is plenty for me. Roughly 1 in 6 selections was for strategy 2.
With 243 winning games (96%) the strategy is shown to work and although I have not managed to beat the author’s 47 match winning streak (my best to date is 44) the bank has benefited by just over 11 points (55% capital increase) at an ROI of 4.51% which reflects the low risk. The analysis on the results display shows strategy 2 is offering a higher ROI at around 13% but naturally there is greater risk.
It took just over a week for me to recover the one off cost of the system based on a £250 bank. There has been no draw down since I started and the bank is now approaching the stage where you may consider compounding the stakes to reflect the profits made. If you are prepared to invest additional time it may well be possible to improve returns by using multiples.
So yet again Chris has offered a product that does what it says it will. It will not make you rich overnight but if used as instructed should allow a worthwhile return and would make a sensible portfolio addition as a low risk element.
I am happy to classify the strategy as Positive and will continue to monitor and update the performance data regularly.
Approaching 500 bets now and it is a case of more of the same. The key here is to be careful with your selections rather than try to add extra marginal games – even then there will be the result that goes against you but by adopting a steady approach you should make some cash. I have managed to improve the performance a little by seeking slightly higher odds than initially available and so be able to include games that would otherwise not reach the threshold odds. (This strategy is used in Chris’s new service to a wider extent.)
Of the 483 selections I have made – remember that individuals are likely to have differing selections depending on the time they check, the risk they are prepared to take etc – there have been 21 losing bets so a strike rate in excess of 95% has been achieved. The profit is 19.9 points which is just under 100% of capital gained and the ROI is 4.12% overall with the 2nd strategy continuing to offer the best return at 10.53%. Unless you are considering withdrawing profit Chris now suggests you should recalculate your stake based on the new bank.
There is no change to the Positive classification and the service remains good value at the low risk end of the market.
Update 31/3/2018: A further strong performance from the strategy with the bank now standing at more than 4 times its starting point having benefited from the stake increase. It should be safe enough to start withdrawing profits regularly now and yet preserving your capital fully. This strategy does seem to be a little stronger than its successor.
The pretty minimal one-off subscription continues to be well justified.
