Robobets

I wasn’t able to use the bot between Friday and Sunday as I was travelling but I’m going to report the results as if I had as they had three losing days on the trot taking the initial profit right back down to £12:

29/5 -£64
30/5 -£68
31/5 -£36

Total Profit £12

One thing that is clear with this service is that because they go for such high priced selections, the strike rate is very low and the profit is realised when they hit a few high priced winners. This is probably why using a bot is a good idea as it would take some serious self discipline to keep betting after 70,80 or even 90 losers on the trot.

However, since we are supposed to be using a 200 point betting bank, even getting 100 losers on the trot would only get through 50% of the bank, so one would think think as long as we hit a few high priced winners often enough, the profit is attainable.

Which brings me on to my next point. With high price selections, the liquidity (the amount of money avaialable in the market for a selection) is going to be a lot less than for low priced selections, simply because not as many people would bother betting on them. This means that if you suddenly get a few hundred people putting money on a horse at a high price, the price drops dramatically.

It would appear that quite a few people have recently decided to have a go with the free trial and a lot of money is now going on these high priced horses. I asked Clive about this and he tells me he has had to change the timing of the bets and added a sequence to the way the bets are placed by the software and that this has made an instant improvement to the attainable odds. They have also changed the way the results on their site show the odds, in his words:

“Instead of just taking the odds at the time of publishing the selections we already now take an average over the betting period.  It is hoped to enhance this further so that each level of membership will show the odds at the exact time their bets are fired.”

I got a rather nasty e-mail from one reader accusing me of promoting a ‘scam’ because the odds he got were considerably less than those published. Obviously I pointed out that I haven’t actually promoted this yet, it’s still in the testing phase, and explained that it might be prudent to get the full facts before jumping to conclusions about a system or service.

The results I publish here are the actual results I get unless I’m unable to bet which is unlikely over the next few weeks. I too have noticed the prices I’ve been getting today are in some instances less than the published odds, not that it mattered because they lost, but I did get 27.00 on Belle Of The Lodge and they published a price of 20.00 initially and then odds of 22.00 for that selection when they did the average. I also got 48.00 for Zaskia, they published 45.00, and I got 28.00 for Edgeworth, which won, and they published results of 27.00. This leads me to believe they are publishing accurate results and not trying to scam anyone. It remains to be seen whether this service will be profitable but unlike the aforementioned reader, I prefer to withold judgement until I’ve actually tested it.

Onto today and I did bet live again. I decided to go for the Janus package which is a £5 per bet, so I will simply be reporting the actual profit/loss I get daily from the Betfair account I’m using for this bot.

Today there were two winners and I made £50.33 on the day:

as opposed to the £42.48 published in their results:

Again, it’s too early to tell if this is going to be profitable long term BUT I’m not about to make snap judgements, and I’m certainly not stupid enough to start throwing the scam word around. My experience so far has been that these guys are above board and they are making a profit, even if I had stuck with £2 a bet:

1/6 +50

Total profit £62

There were no qualifed trades on Wednesday 27th April. On Thursday and Friday I wasn’t able to trade but looking back through the charts I can see that on Thursday there was a winner on the EURUSD around 8.30am and another just after 2pm, but a loser on cable after 2pm making 10 pips on the day. On Friday there was a winner on cable around 2.30 but a loser on EURUSD around the same time so losing 10 pips.

Monday 1st June

A winner on EURUSD this morning:

Then a loser on cable:

Game, Set & Match Punter – Reviewed by Chris
 
Hi – I would like to offer a review of the Game, Set & Match Punter manual. As you know, we usually carry out a minimum of a 1 month trial of a system here at Cash Master. The study of Game, Set & Match Punter however, will be slightly different. Instead of doing a one month trial, I will be evaluating the manual in a review format. The reason for this is because Game, Set & Match Punter is not a system as such.
 
If you are in to tennis, and would like to study the game further (either from a spectators point of view, or a betting point of view), then this manual is ideal. It goes in to fine detail about what affects particular play, or players, and is indeed a comprehensive 107 page document.
 
The manual begins with an introduction to what it covers, and quickly opens with the fundamentals of what to look out for.
 
Contents Include:
 
1. Introduction
2. A little about tennis betting
3. The surfaces
The author goes in to great detail regarding the different surfaces, and how the surfaces affect the ball and play, the advantages and disadvantages of particular surfaces, and which players are best suited accordingly. This section alone offers excellent insight and value.
4. The ranking system
5. The tournaments
The author goes in to detail about the various tournaments around the world, and which players perform best at which tournament
6. The players
This is the largest section of the manual. The author provides a comprehensive overview of the main players in the WTA & ATP tournaments, highlighting strengths and weaknesses, and what to look out for to capture and optimize potential betting opportunities. This section is highly informative and offers the reader essential valuable data which is essential if you are to start out or better your tennis betting venture.
7. Form study
The form study section is a logical assessment of a game you might consider to bet on. The author goes in to detail about how to study form, and what to be mindful of
8. Off court factors
Finally, the author puts the icing on the cake, by offering insightful
information in to off court factors that can seriously affect the outcome of a game. These off court factors are key in many games, and arm the informed punter with the knowledge to be able to spot those hard to find, but crucial value bets.
 
Game, Set & Match Punter is indeed a comprehensive scientific study of tennis. The author does offer a kind of system that you can use to find a qualifying bet. This system is in the form of a point system. By utilising the form data, the author shows a logical basis by which the reader can score a player. The player that meets the high score criteria is the one to back, or the other player, to lay. The author makes it clear, that the semi system should not be used on it’s own, but as a foundation for a bet. The other factors he teaches should be adopted before making a conclusion as to which game qualifies as a value bet.
 
The author also offers various approaches to trading on the betting exchanges, and how to find games that offer the best opportunities.
 
My personal opinion of the Game, Set & Match Punter manual, is that it is essential if you want to achieve a successful approach to tennis betting. The knowledge base provided in the manual is well worth the money you pay for it. However, I would say, that this manual is for the serious punter, and not the lazy one. I have no doubt that if you follow this guide, and apply the teachings, you will win at betting on tennis. The down side to the success is the time it will take you to study the daily betting opportunities. You will need to be committed to making a go of it, and spend a couple of hours per day (if you do it correctly). If you are willing to do this, then I see no reason why you wouldnt be able to make a success of tennis betting.
