I am having a look at this service from the Betting Gods stable. This claims a profit of 169 points since September 1st, and is simple advice to bet in the football markets. The tips arrive early morning by email, giving the market to bet in, the points to stake, and bookies/prices to take.

I began following the service on 1st February, and am +4.33 points to the good with 16 wins from 25 bets. This is based on Betfair prices -5% commission. My results won’t be the same as official results, firstly because I do bet in the Betfair market, though I can usually achieve at least as good odds as quoted; and secondly because as a cautious bettor, instead of a lay bet I back the double chance for the same stake, so the risk is lower but the return for a win is lower (ie if the lay is the home team, I back away or draw) but in reporting I will give the official results which currently stand at +3.5 points.

Occasionally there may be obscure markets – a bet in the Iranian league was not available on Betfair, but so far the service is looking reliable. We’ll give this three months and see where it takes us.
