As it’s a monthly update I will run this on from the last monthly update, February. And it needed something spectacular to bring this service round and something spectacular sure did happen on the last day of March but was it enough? Let’s have a look …
Well there it is No, the last day’s results in the gragh are not a slip of my pen, they had a 66/1 winner (BSP = 149.38) … Misu Mac 14:55 Southwell on 31st March! But is it enough? Can they guarantee getting a 66/1 winner every 5 months to dig them out from a loss? I wouldn’t put my money on it! There was a good start to November then it muddled along with profits and losses until almost the end of March showing a 20 point loss over the 5 months and then Misu Mac came along and the service returned a 40 point profit over the 5 months. I can’t recommend that set of stats but the final choice is yours, I rate this service a Fail.
A poor performance for this service in the month of -25 points. Overall the service made a profit over the 5 months to advised odds of 21 points but that was all made by middle December so for the last 3 1/2 months the service has not covered the subscription fee. My rating is therefore, at best, Neutral but the same as for the Race Insider system the choice is yours but I cannot give my personal support just now.
A very Neutral return for the month of 1 point. The overall return for the 5 months being just 5 points or 1 point per month. The graph shows the spike in profits in January and the loss of that spike in February. The graph is also a good illustration of how important the review period is (see the review for my Combined Insider portfolio below). If the review had ended after the first 2.5 months the service would have shown an acceptable return of nearly 20 points with a good graph but if it was assessed over the last 2.5 months it would have shown an unacceptable loss of 15 points with a disastrous graph! I think the service gets a neutral rating as it didn’t lose money but it’s not for me.
OK, here is where I link the 3 services together as a small portfolio. The staking is 1 point win for Race Insider tips, 1 point each way for Place Insider tips and 5 points liability for the Lay Insider as the average odds are 5.61. The return looks like this …
OK, I’ve split the graph for this into the first 3 month (Nov’14 – Jan’15) and the last 3 months (Jan’15 – Mar’15), yes. January is duplicated because 2 x 3 months doesn’t fit into 5 months! The straight lines are trend lines. I don’t think you needed them to see which way the graphs are going but they do help to emphasise the point. OK so this portfolio made 100 points profit to advised odds and a very impressive profit of 215 points to Betfair SP (BSP) which on the face of it looks great but … remember the last day of March for Race Insider when 66 points was recovered at Advised Odds and a massive 141 points at BSP so if for any reason that bet was missed the net returns would have been 34 points at Advised Odds and 74 at BSP. Would 34 points light your fire after 5 months? It doesn’t mine. The BSP return is acceptable in amount but I’m not sure it is for the number of bets risked. For this reason I think the best rating I can give the Combined service of all the Insider systems as a package a neutral rating but I cannot give my personal support to these services at the moment.
I think this service may be worth monitoring for longer because they did show good profits at the start and maybe they can get their form back. I had high hopes for them after the first couple of months.
