Betting Mastermind is a football betting service provided by Stuart who I have actually known in the betting space for over a decade.

You get an email each morning with the tips for the day and you simply place a 1 point level stake on each selection and get on with your day.

He now provides tips in four specific football markets:

Back the Draw
Back the Home Win
Back the Away Win
Back Over 0.5 First Half Goals

Plus they are testing the Under 2.5 market.

The service costs £39.99 per month.

There is also an additional option of completely automating this service with a betting bot, namely BF Bot Manager. There is no extra charge for this from Stuart although of course you’ll need your own subscription to BF Bot Manager (and a VPS if you want it all running in the cloud). Since I do already run BF Bot Manager for other strategies I chose to use this option as it made this trial effortless. The bot automatically downloads the selections each day and bets on them so all I have to do is check to see how they are doing once in a while.

As usual, I bet at the CashMaster standard of £10 level stakes, betting on Betfair. I ran this since 21st December 2022 and here are my final results:

It’s worth noting that Stuart abandoned the Lay the Draw strategy in March and introduced the Under 2.5 Strategy under test a little later.

So the final results are as follows:

All five strategies: -£344.28

Without Lay the Draw and Under 2.5: £162.08

Without Lay the Draw: £67.71

Even if I had been running this trial without the Lay the Draw or the Under 2.5 strategy it would have made a profit of £162.08 after five and a half months which wouldn’t have covered the subscription, and especially not if using the betting bot and the VPS.

As such I did use all strategies and lost £344 and either way this one has to go down as a fail.
