Another new sport for me is NHL (Ice Hockey). From Betting Gods, the tipster I am following is NHL Betting Master.
The selections are expected in the afternoon between 4:30 and 6:30. A 100-point bank is advised, so a starting bank of £1,000 to start at our £10 per point standard.
I recorded results using the advised prices and Betfair prices when the email is received. I deducted 2% from Betfair winnings for commission. Where the advised market is not offered by Betfair, I simply added the bookmakers returns to the Betfair column, so Betfair results will be a mixture of exchange & bookmaker.
At the end of the normal CashMaster 13-week trial we had only seen 49 bets. As this is too few bets on which to form an opinion I decided to run the service for longer. 1st March, just a tad under 6 months, seems like a good opportunity to look at the results.
Still only 94 bets though, but 39 points down, which is -£390 using our £10 per point metric. Betfair is even worse at 101.8 points down. However, since mid-December the service is up 0.8 points to advised odds but still 18 points down to BSP.
It is frustrating that maximum bets (9 or 10 points) had 2 wins in 6 bets.
Bets are easily enough to place, you get an email with the bets and advised stake. Betfair didn’t have all the matches but the markets used are 3-way, 2-way and Asian handicap and occasionally total goals.
This service is too far underwater even before subscription costs are added to consider any other rating that failed.
