Ryan from Exponential Bet just released a FREE trading guide including a walk through explaining how to use one of his pre-race trade techniques.
This is a straightforward back to lay strategy that’s very easy to learn and can be placed using some automation using Hedger Pro, going race to race manually, with or without software, and requires no subscription or purchase necessary.
Anybody can access the guide via the registration page below:
Unfortunately Goal King haven’t been able to keep up their great start to the trial.
You may remember from my first update, they recorded a brilliant 7 out of 8 winning bets over their first week of operation, making a staggering 22 points of profit. The following few weeks haven’t been anywhere near as good.
It’s not a disaster as we’ve only really just started the trial and we are still (just) in profit, but we could certainly do with getting closer to that epic first week again once in a while
From the Betting Gods stable comes a horse racing tipster with a twist: the selections are from across the pond!
Emails are arrive at breakfast time, which is around midnight Eastern time, Wednesdays through to Sundays. They contain the selections, a stake plan, target odds and recommended bookies. There is also a writeup to justify the selection. Don’t worry the tipster uses east America racetracks, so racing concludes at a reasonable time if you want to follow these live.
Results were recorded using the advised prices. Use of the exchange was a non-starter as neither Betfair nor Betdaq offered markets for most of the venues.
Things were going along very nicely but has hit the skids the last few weeks. This may be weather related.
With -23.68 points, -£236 to our £10 per point standard, before £20.99 per month subscription, I am going to classify this service a neutral in the hopes that the initial performance is more representative than the final few weeks.
The service does seem to get quite a few placed horses. I didn’t record each-way results but each-way betting on the higher odds selections could improve overall performance.
From the Betting Gods stable, The Bookies Enemy is a horse racing tipster costing £37 per month.
Emails are expected mid-evening to catch the early bird prices, so this service doesn’t lend itself to Betfair. I recorded results to BSP, with 2% commission deducted, anyway as well as the advised price. Note that I do not adjust for BOG as this is a bookie perk.
The email contains the staking plan and some suggested bookies as well as a write-up justifying the selection, so all you need do is place the bets as soon as the email arrives.
The service closed at 11.6 points up, £116 using our standard £10 per point. This just covers the subscription costs. As you can see from the chart below, performance has been very hit and miss.
As suspected, with -23.76 points (-£237) Betfair isn’t an option to BSP. You may be able to grab some higher odds, but mid-evening liquidity will be an issue.
After 13 weeks and once subscription costs are included the service has trod water and therefore attracts a neutral rating. Of course, you could use higher stakes than £10 but we don’t assess systems that way.
I was looking forward to reviewing this service as I like golf betting; yes, it has long losing streaks, but the high odds usually mean that golf betting can be very profitable. I was less sure about the tennis as I haven’t reviewed a tennis service before.
Selections are received by email around breakfast time for the tennis and mid-evening for the golf, and contain the selections, staking plan and recommended bookies. I recorded results using the advised prices in the email and using Betfair (minus 2% commission) where possible. There are many doubles and other accas and Betfair doesn’t have all the markets; particularly the 2-ball and 3-ball bets on the golf was very hit and miss. Realistically you could not follow this service solely on the exchanges.
I was looking forward to a decent performance given this graph of last year. Unfortunately, the service hasn’t got close to this performance.
Tennis was doing its best to cover the poor performance from the golf, but had a poor week close to the end of the trial. Whilst a bit static, the tennis closed with a small loss and attracts a neutral rating.
I am very disappointed with the golf service with -170 points. Each-way bets on the outright winner markets may have helped, but these bets were advised as win bets, so that is what I recorded. This component is a definite fail, and means that the whole service fails too. An admission here; most of the golf betting in 2-ball and 3-ball betting. Here you bet on x to beat y and z, for example Otaegui to bt Smith/Ritthammer. Where x had the same score as either y or z I recorded this as a loss; i.e. in this example Otaegui had to have a lower score for the round than either Smith or Ritthammer and I recorded ties as a loss.
With -10.12 points on tennis (-£101 to our standard £10 per point) and -170.73 points on the golf (-£1707) for a combined loss of 180 points (-£1800) before subscription costs of £37 per month this service is a fail.
With only 49 bets in this 13-week trial period I do not feel that I have collected enough data to assess this service. Whilst I’d normally rule off a service at this point, I intend to keep going for another 13-weeks, assuming that the selections keep coming.
As you can, the service is nearly 40 points down before subscription costs, so I hope the extension will allow the service to recover. If I was to evaluate today this service would be a fail.
Normally, at week 13, I’d be signing off a trial and summarising the system’s performance. However, I feel that with only 56 bets in this period that I do not have enough data to accurately assess this service.
After 56 bets we a tad under break-even before subscription costs. I’d be going with a neutral were I to stop here, however I give this service some more time, perhaps another 13 weeks, and see where that takes it.
I’m starting a new trial of a brand new service, the Goal King football tipping service.
They send the selections to you every Friday via email and mostly cover the BTTS and Under/Over markets.
The subscription rates are £14.95 per month and they currently have a promotion of £79 for a full year of tips. This promotion runs until the end of the year, so we should be able to see if they know what they’re doing by then.
They had an excellent first weekend with 7 out of 8 tips winning.
One (slightly pedantic) grumble so far, they advise a 200pt bank, which is fine as I’ll start with a £2,000 bank and use £10 stakes, but in their FAQ section they say “We use a 200 point betting bank and bets are always 5 points each”. Well then, in real terms that’s a 40 point bank, which is not an awful lot of wiggle room. But if they keep up the performance to these levels, we’ll have no worries about the bank
After the first weekend of bets we made a profit of £243 to £10 a point stakes. Very impressive start
Tennis Tennis season is more or less over until January and the build-up to the Australian Open. So only 3 bets this week, none of which won. It is unlikely that the final week will pull this part of the service back to profit, but we’ll see!
