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.
