Value Football Bets

A losing week on this part of the service. We’ve been told that a new section will be available to members soon, a Daily Best Bets page will be opened up. These have apparently been doing very well in testing, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens there. All others parts of the service are doing well.

Doubling for Dummies

Regretably, another poor week – with only 4 winning bets. In order to avoid a losing week, two of these at the weekend were double stakes efforts but only one came in at the full price.
A defeat has been avoided this week, but only just.

16th Feb  : £-50

17th Feb : £-50

18th Feb : £-50

20th Feb : £+52 (1.04)

21st Feb : £-50 / £+90 (0.9)

Dobbing Secrets

Imagine if you could win 75% of your bets”

… there’s never been a drawdown of more than 6 units!”

Dobbing Secrets attempts to highlight the most likely front-runners in certain race types with the aim of getting matched in-play on the exchanges to get a ‘free’ bet. The ‘free bet’ essentially doubling your stake should the selection make it first past the post.  If your lay bet is matched, but the selection doesnt win, you will lose nothing.
Hence, Double Or Bust —>= DOB

So, you place a BACK bet prior to the start of the race and using the simple spreadsheet calculator (available from their site), calculate the price for the corresponding LAY bet and place this pre-race too. The only caveat here is that the selection must get matched in-running for you to be safe ie. in a no-lose situation.

The selections are simple enough to find and shouldnt take you more than 10 minutes per day. Each selection has to meet a minimum price requirement and a further check on the specific position of the selection also approx. 10 minutes before the off.

All the necessary detail can be found in the electronic manual, for those of you that may wish to play along.. you can purchase this from the link below..(£47 + VAT).

For those who would rather not bother with trawling the racecards each day – there is another alternative… you can also subscribe to their mailing list and the selections will arrive directly to your Inbox each day and in good time before the racing day begins (monthly subscription of £27).

(Note : For the purposes of this trial I am using BSP prices)

The story so far…

13th Feb – 22nd Feb (staking £25 / point)

20 selections
5 void (not meeting filter requirements) before start
6 failed to get matched in-running (loss of £150)
2 winners (profit of £52.90 after comm.)

Overall : LOSS / £-97.10 (-3.88 pts)

February 21, 2015


I have received an email from this service saying that they are making a number of significant changes to the way selections are made and the way you are to back them.

The service had got off to a pretty bumpy start and they are concerned that things are not continuing in the same fashion they did in testing.

As we had only been going less that a week and I had made the one introductory post here on the blog, I am willing on this occasion to restart the test from scratch.

I have received the selections for today (Saturday) and will be recording them as per the new method. I will give full details of the change when I make my next report, which should hopefully be on Monday.

Value Backing

This is an excellent service that has been on my Approved list for a few years now.

To remind you, this service targets selections that are considered to be priced above their likely chances of winning.

This is not a bet a day service. You are only sent bets that have real value available, but you can expect big priced winners.

There will be more bets when there is quality racing available as one is then betting on better class horses.

Selections arrive by email before 11:00 am each day and are also posted in the members area.

A 50 point bank is recommended. With each selection the suggested staking is also advised along with the current price available with a “best odds guaranteed” bookmaker in the event that the price drifts (unlikely). The vast majority of stakes are 1 point win, 1/2 pt ew, 1pt ew and very occasionally 2pts win. Losing runs are to be expected as the average prices are around the 5/1 to 20/1 mark but overtime the results have shown a healthy return on investment.

So on to recent results.

The main Value Backing service was up 96.56 points for 2014 and is 19 points up so far this year.

They also do specific festival offers and cleaned up at Cheltenham last year with £653 profit to £10 stakes.

They had 5 winners from the four day festival priced at 50/1, 33/1, 10/1, 10/1 and 10/1.

The are running a promotion for the festival again this year where for just £20 you get all this:

- A selection in every race at the 2015 festival
- Access to all the Value Backing main service and Value Backing Extra selections from now until the festival
- Access to all the Value Backing Daily selections every day from now until the festival
- The sooner you join the more bets you get :-)
- Carl’s ante-post Cheltenham Yankee, pays £29,248 for a 50 pence eachway stake – the sooner you join the bigger the prices you can get!
- Optional – discounted ongoing membership to Value Backing

Football Acca Tips

It has been a month since I put this service back on an extra month’s trial due to its performance.

The advice for how to back tips changed, so I have recorded accordingly. I have only counted the “Confidence Tips” and Accas towards the recorded figures but have kept track of the Outsider Tips as well.

I’m sorry to say that the changes have not improved performance sufficiently. In the month since the changes were made, it has lost another 10.5 points, if you had included Outsiders that would have been a 33 point loss.

The reason I have allowed this service so long to prove itself is that it did manage to land a huge winning bet back in early December but without that one single result, this service just hasn’t made profit during the 5 months we’ve been following it.

I received and email on Saturday saying that they are changing the way bets are to be backed again but I really do feel that we’ve given this one ample time and now it is time to draw a line under it.

I do not think this service should stay on the Approved list but will refrain from putting it in Failed as it did manage that one big hit. I think NEUTRAL is the correct final rating.

GeeGeez Gold

Following on from my update on Monday about this service, Matt has written an F.A.Q. page to answer, well, the frequently asked questions! Here it is:


CLOSING TODAY: Your Questions Answered

The specially extended trial offer for Geegeez Gold comes to an end tonight, at 10pm sharp. If you’re already on board, I hope you can see why I’m such a raving fan of this site.

If you’re not yet a Gold subscribe – or on a trial – you’ll find the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions below. I hope they help you make a decision because time is running out fast.

Right, here goes…
What exactly is Geegeez Gold?

Gold is a collection of tools, tips and race cards designed to suit horse racing and betting fans of all levels of experience.

Its flagship tipping service Stat of the Day is over 250 points up since inception (and selected a nice 4/1 winner for Gold subscribers yesterday).

Stat of the Day is well supported by Double Dutch (two winning days in a row, and just broken through the 100 points profit barrier); and The Shortlist, which is a value-finding report available each day.

The feature-rich Gold racecards; incisive winner-finding reports; and tools like Pace Analysis and Instant Expert are arming punters with more information than ever before, and doing it in a really simple to digest way.

How do I register?

Go to http://www.cash-master.com/3Weeks.php

If you don’t yet have a Geegeez account (i.e. you haven’t registered on the site), select the New User button on that page.

If you’re already a Geegeez free subscriber, select the Upgrade button.


I don’t have much time/experience/inclination. Is Gold for me?

Only you can answer whether Gold is for you, and the way to do that is to try it out. What I can tell you is that there is something for everyone:
– for the time poor, or the novice, start with the profitable tips, and The Shortlist report, and go from there to the Instant Expert grids

– for those with a bit more time/experience, check out the other reports, as well as Pace Analysis and Full Form Filters – these are industry-leading form tools.


I’m currently using Racing Post / Timeform / At The Races / Sporting Life cards. What’s so great about Gold compared to those?

Without meaning to sound rude to those established names, their development has been rather slow, and their owners are somewhat complacent. Geegeez Gold has THE BEST racecards in Britain, bar none. I don’t expect you to believe me, that’s why I’ve offered you three weeks to see that for yourself.

Our range of information, all presented in a really easy to use fashion, is miles ahead of some of those ‘brand names’, and furlongs ahead of all of them.

For example, you’ll not find colour-coded form profiling anywhere else. You’ll not find easy to understand pace maps on any of those sites. You’ll not be able to quickly and easily drill down into the heart of a horse’s relevant form anywhere else.

Gold is different. Gold is better. Much better.

Try it for yourself: http://www.cash-master.com/3Weeks.php


What if I don’t like Gold, or can’t get on with it?

No problem. Despite everything, we know that Gold won’t suit all types of bettor. Although we have pulled together an envious collection of tips, tools, racecards and reports that make money – and are time proven to do so – it might not be for you.

In that case, no problem, just cancel your subscription, and that will be that. Oh, and thanks a million for taking time to try Gold out.


Why do you ask for my payment details if it’s a free trial?

A good, and perfectly fair, question. We do take payment details at the outset, and you will be auto-billed after three weeks if you wish to stay on board. However, if you don’t wish to continue, and/or you simply forgot to cancel, that’s not a problem.

Just drop us a line and we’ll refund your payment and cancel your subscription. It does happen from time to time, and it’s never a drama. :-)
My question hasn’t been answered above. What now?

No problem. Drop me a line at info@geegeez.co.uk and I’ll be happy to answer any further questions you have.
As I say, the special extended trial offer ends tonight at 10pm, so if you’re not on board already, this is your last call. After today, you’ll still be able to get 10 days to try out Gold. But why have 10 when you can have 21 free days full access?!
Click here to get started today:


Thanks again for taking time to consider Geegeez Gold, and I’m glad at the very least that you’ve now heard of it. Because I think it’s something you’re going to hear a lot more about as the year goes on.

Best Regards,

Handicap Trade Secrets

This is a backing service that targets decent priced horses to win and place on Betfair.

The idea is that the selections represent value as the market is generally unaware of the true chance of the horse winning and therefore prices are often larger than industry starting prices.

As we all know, so long as we are getting value bets, we will profit in the long term.

Tips are sent by e-mail late morning and the advice is to bet to level stakes with 30% going on the selection to win, and 70% on it to place. This provides a steady bank growth as many that do not win, do make the place.

The published results since the service started in May last year are as follows:

Total bets: 188
Won or placed: 142
lost: 46
Strike rate: 75%

Profit: £24,418 including Betfair 5% commission charge using the recommended staking plan of 70% place and 30% win to a stake of £100.

I’ve been using the service since 14th January this year, with just £10 stakes (£3 on win, £7 on place) while I test it and my results are as follows:

Win Market:

Bets: 10
Won : 4
Lost: 6
S/R : 40%
Odds: 8.9

Profit: £72.06

Place Market:

Bets: 10
Won : 6
Lost: 4
S/R : 60%
Odds: 2.43

Profit: £29.18

Total Profit: £101.24

So that’s ten points profit in my first month with only ten bets which I’m very pleased with.

As you can see, there are not a lot of bets, so far averaging two and a half a week, so it’s a relaxed service but it appears to be performing as the published results suggest.

I will continue this trial for another two months before giving a verdict and probably continue throughout the year if it is this profitable.

Draw Day Demolition

I’m going to be recording results for this new tipster service over the next few months.

As you can see from the sales page, this service specialises in betting that the game will NOT end in a draw.

There is a One Week Free Trial offer available and subscription costs £24.99 (+vat for UK residents) per month thereafter.

After signing up, you are directed to a page that explains how it all works. There are three staking plans to choose from; Level Stakes (10% of starting bank), Daily Calculated 10%, or a more aggressive Ratcheting Stake Level.

I always think that level stakes are the only way to go when trying out something new. I’m a firm believer in the fact that staking plans should only be used to improve the return a winning approach not to try and save a losing one.

You then have three different ways to place your bets.

You can “Dutch” your stake across both teams, this means that you split your stake and back both teams to win. The easiest method is to split them so that you get the same return if either win. You could also tweak that slightly so that you win more if the favourite wins and less if the underdog wins. For the sake of clarity on the trial, I will be recording Dutched stakes aimed at winning the same amount for either team.

You could just put one bet on the “Double Chance”. In this betting market you select one of “1x”, “12” or “x2″.

“1x” means Home Win or Draw, “12” means Home or Away win, “x2″. So for this service we would select “12”.

The last option is to Lay The Draw on Betfair. No explanation needed there but you do need to be aware that not every selection they make is offered on Betfair, and some that are have virtually no liquidity.

All sounds very muddily but is far clearer when broken into plain facts:

Choose your staking plan

Receive the selections

See which betting option gives you the best return.

It’s easy to see which is your best option as each selection is provided with a link to the correct page on an odds comparison website. There are also links to a handy Dutching Calculator so you can quickly calculate the potential win.

The average return for a winning selection is going to be around the 1.25 – 1.35 odds mark, so we’re going to need a strike rate nearing 80% to make this profitable.

The best way for me to run this trial is to record all bets at level stakes, and keep track of returns from all three betting methods. Obviously, I can only record a Betfair figure when they have the game available with a realistic level of liquidity.

I started the trial on Saturday with a notional £1000 bank, so stakes will be £100 per bet.
