Free Footy Tips

First off, an apology. I was sure that I had written up the verdict for this service at the end of May to coincide with the end of the main European leagues. It seems that I failed to do so for some unfathomable reason, so I apologise for the lateness of this post. The stats and results recorded and reported on here are upto 1/6/17.

This service provides a daily email that contains entirely free tips for both football and horse racing as well as news and advice on bookie and casino based offers. For the purpose of the trial I concentrated solely on the football tips.

On most days you receive a list of four football matches and under the list you find the advice on how to back them. You have a double, a treble and a fourfold. So the usual daily outlay is 3 points. The tips are usually on the Match Odds market but Under/Over and BTTS bets do also feature. The odds for the bets are always on the low side, sometimes VERY low, with the idea being that they will land enough trebles and accumulators to cover the losing days.

Unfortunately, that rarely worked out to be the case. Only just over half of the doubles landed and with average odds just about reaching over even money, it was always going to be an uphill struggle.

In fact, if it wasn’t for the fact that so many of the games kick off at the same time, the selections would have been really very easy & profitable as a “Stop at Winner” laying service. Only 13 out of 75 fourfolds won

So if judged purely as a football tipping service, it’d be a bit of a disaster really. An overall loss of 34 points was made. But, to be fair, there really is no fee payable and you do get a daily email with horse tips and a free “heads up” type alert for some potentially very lucrative casino & bookie offers that you’d have to pay a fair amount of subs for from other services.

So while I obviously don’t recommend that you follow the football tips as they are given, I do suggest you read them and do a bit of research from some of the excellent free football stat sites available and take a view on them regarding real chances of them landing compared to the low (often very low) prices available. I can’t comment on the quality of the horse racing tips supplied as I haven’t been backing or recording them at all.

I still think this is worth signing up to as it requires no effort and no outlay in return for a daily email providing you with some bets to mull over and plenty of casino and bookie offers and sign up bonuses that you’d have to pay for elsewhere.

It’s really difficult to know which category to file this under. It’s an obvious FAIL as a tipping service, but it’s certainly worth having as a freebie.

So, I’m going to put it in APPROVED so that our readers do actually take notice of it but will add the caveat DO NOT BACK THESE TIPS AS THEY ARE GIVEN, YOU WILL LOSE MONEY IF YOU DO, TREAT IT LIKE THE TIPS PAGE OF A NEWSPAPER AND PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE OFFERS.

Hopefully that should be clear enough.
