Football Betting Champ

27/4

As you can see from the figures recorded so far, the system has made a rather disappointing start to it’s trial run.

I received an email this morning from the system’s author containing his thoughts on the slump in performance and his assurance that things will pick up as he has experienced a period like this before. As there is nothing in the email to give away rules or methods used in the system I will paste a copy at the end of this post.

I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and carry on with the trial in the hope that this is a temporary blip. As many football fans know, the start and end periods of a season can throw up some funny results as some teams are treading water, some are planning for next year and some will rest players in meaningless league games to have them ready for cups etc.

If the previous results of this system are as strong as the author claims (and in my opinion he is to be commended for his efforts to prove his claims and his attention to decent customer service) then it would be unwise to write it off too soon.

Copy of email received from Football Betting Champ :

The poor run has continued this weekend and the Football Betting Champ
system has registered two losses in a row.
Now, after a shocking month, i am sure you are about to or have already
packed in the system; and are no longer going to show any interest.
I fully understand that you may feel this way and i am sorry that it hasn’t worked
out for you as of yet.
I do feel, however, that the system is far from dead, having experienced a
period like this before and been able to bounce back.
I am going to prove to you now that the system is what it is cracked up to be,
over the next couple of days i will provide you with 4 seasons worth of proof
which will convince you to continue using the system next season.
I will show you exactly what bets have been placed and what series have been
won and lost, including date, odds and result. Those of you who have purchased
the system will be able to find an archive of results and odds, and work your
way back through and cross-check the results yourself using the system rules
detailed in the pdf.
I am going back through now and making sure everything is truthful, i will be
contacting you most likely tomorrow.
I will also project profit for the 4 seasons, starting with $1000.
I can understand that you may want a refund at this stage, and there is no
problem here, i just ask that you hang tight over the next couple of days and
take a look at what i have to show you.
If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to ask as
always.
Thank you for your continued patience during this time.
Kind Regards,
Jason

That sounds fair enough to me and I will let you all know the relevant details as and when I receive them.

Jason has also said that any blog readers with questions about the system can contact him via email at the following address.

Not a sausage. I had to cut my daily ticket purchase in half to help stretch the bank. If I don’t win something soon, it won’t last the month.

Running Bank £838

24/4

(C) Hoffenheim v Hertha -£75

25/4

(B) Doncaster v Palace -£45

(D) Doncaster v Palace -£91

26/4

(D) Ath Bilbao v Santander -£75

Running Bank £552

The two bets listed on the Doncaster game have not been done in error. It just happened that two teams with ongoing cycles played each other. This system could really do with a winner or two in the next few bets as the starting bank has been nearly halved in just the first week of the trial. However, the minimum price of a bet is 2/1 and it is usually higher than that so a couple of wins should turn things around. What is slightly concerning is that although the system claims to win 90% of cycles we have had two losing cycles close out this weekend. But as stated before the are several cycles on the go at any one time and it is to be hoped that they can bump up the bottom line soon.

Place Lay Formula

Hi Folks,

trying to get back in to the swing of things after a really bad start to the year, with a review of “Place Lay Formula”.

The title says it all really; it is a formula for selecting horses to loose in a betting exchange’s place market. Usually when betting or laying a horse this is done in the Win market – which is 1st past the post. The Place market is where the bet would win if the horse crosses the line 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th. The exact number of places varies depending on the number of runners. However the formula insists that only races where 1st, 2nd and 3rd are counted are selected. We are laying this market, so do not want our selections to come 1st, 2nd or 3rd.

There are 8 rules to apply, but 4 of these rules can, and should, be done well in advance of the Off. The other 4 rules are applied in the last few minutes before the off, and, at first it can be tricky to apply these rules under pressure and still have a possible selection within the specified odds range. As with anything applying the rules does become easier with practice.

One downside of this system I can state already; you have to be available to evaluate each qualifying race in real-time. This can lead you having to be available from noon to 9pm on some days. Granted, the qualifying races can be hours apart, so you can have a life in between :).

I have used this system personally (using the Yahoo Messenger alert service offered by the author for an additional charge) before accepting the request to write up this blog, and I know the  author also recommends taking Sundays off.

One advantage I can also already state; Place market odds are very much less than Win market odds. A 10/1 in the Win market will often be around 2/1 in the Place market. So when a horse wins and the bet looses, it isn’t going to wipe your bank out.

I will try to blog this each day (baring Sundays as mentioned above). I am in the process of job hunting and moving house, so I might miss some days.

I will start with £1000 bank. This is totally arbitrary as you can start with a bank of any size, but, remember Betfair’s minimum bet is £2. The system suggests 2% of bank per bet at the start of each betting cycle. The staking plan is cyclic with different amounts being bet depending on previous results and simple count. But, this is NOT a progressive stake plan, or even close to being one. I will follow the suggested stake plan also.

A winner this morning:

And another winner:

Then a loser:

And we finish the week with a winner:

Thats another £1100 profit this week and it takes the total up to £49,170 for the year. It looks like I may well hit the £50k mark by the end of my 12 months trading.
