Good and profitable football tipping services are almost as rare as an England World Cup win. Punters tend to think they can select the majority of games themselves and so tipsters have to look for a niche to attract subscribers. In this case we have the profitable every year since 2012 history which coupled with the average odds for selections being above evens the service seemed to have potential – hence the review.
Steve, the author welcomes new subscribers with the advice that he backs all selections himself and that all tips are recommended at a 1 point stake with a 100 point bank being suggested. Emails are received on Fridays and Mondays and cover the next few days – matches tend to be selected from the major European leagues and a wide range of markets are used. As well as the usual 1×2, BTTS and Draw No Bet we have seen another 8 markets including HT/FT, Goals scored and multiples.
A total of 271 bets have been seen with 150 in the 1×2 category. Multiples and Over/Unders are the next most popular bets. As indicated on the website average odds are around the 2.3 mark.
And the results have not kept up with past performance, a strike rate of 46.5% after discounting the push bets. The pattern has been pretty constant through the 14 months of the review with the bank hovering around its starting point finishing 9.85 points down after peaking at a profit of 6.5 early on. Every time you thought a recovery was under way a series of losing bets stopped things in their tracks.
All in all a rather disappointing outcome and the service will now have to re brand its website as they cannot claim a profit very year. Although the cost is low end there is little value in pursuing losing tips over a long period and we must therefore classify the service as failed genuine as it is.
