Matt Bisogno Interview On The SBC 100 Milestone


To herald the release of the 100th SBC Magazine earlier this week, I was recently interviewed on all things ‘Secret Betting Club’ by Matt Bisogno of geegeez.co.uk

Matt grilled me on everything from the early days of SBC, how our review process has developed, through to the tipster world as it stands today and the main issues punters now face.

You can read the interview in full below – I hope you enjoy it!

Savings 468X60
Matt Geegeez: You’ve been going since 2006 – the same year I started online, incidentally, and we have similar aspirations for betting on horse racing, though of course SBC’s remit is broader than just racing. How does it feel to have reached the 100 issue milestone? Did you ever think you would reach this point?

Pete SBC: Honestly, no, the idea of reaching a milestone like this was beyond what was envisaged at the time. The main reason to launch was the lack of a good and transparent tipster review service, especially as we knew of plenty of profitable tipsters we felt merited exposure to a wider audience.

Having lasted 11 years and 100 magazines, I like to think we have achieved much of our remit – to help ordinary people improve their betting profitability. Had we not, I don’t think we would still be here!

Matt: Why do you feel SBC has stood the test of time and lasted so long? What is the secret to its success?

Pete: There are a couple of reasons behind our longevity.

First of all it’s the fact we have been able to consistently find good quality tipsters to review and monitor. Without these, there would be little reason for a service like SBC and I am pleased to say that if anything, the quantity and quality of genuinely good tipsters out there has only gotten stronger over the years. One of my toughest jobs now as an Editor is shortlisting the tipsters we do review in each magazine as inevitably someone’s nose will be out of joint because their service isn’t being featured.

Secondly, I would have to say that our independent stance has really helped us stand out too as the public always knows our opinion is unbiased and fair. Nor are we influenced by advertising or ‘under the table’ deals to praise something for any reason other than a belief it is genuinely good.

Compared to many other, especially mainstream betting media outlets, who are clearly compromised by their lack of independence, I think our stance appeals to those seeking impartial advice.

Matt: There’s no doubt that SBC has made a mark in the online betting space. What impact do you feel you have had?

Pete: I certainly like to think we have had a hand in dragging standards up when it comes to tipster services.

Whilst there will always be those tipsters that try it on, in the main, punters these days expect a lot more from any tipster before signing-up to a service and can spot a scam that much easier.

Whether that’s the ability to see a full set of results (not just the winners) or some evidence of third party proofing to verify claims, punters are more clued up to what to expect from a tipster.

I also think we have helped make the idea of using tipsters to make money a more realistic proposition. So many SBC members are doing this these days and blogs like our own Bet Diary, have helped expose this as a realistic goal.

SBC 100 468X60

Matt: Amongst other things, you are known for your tipster reviews and reports. What has changed in the tipping world over the past 11 years (both good and bad!)?

Pete: Continuing from that last point of improved standards, certainly the professionalism, transparency and quality of tipsters in general has changed and for the better. Especially those we review at the sharper end of the market who really have a significant edge.

A large chunk of this is down to what is required to stand-out in today’s crowded tipster market place. It’s no good just simply giving out tips and hoping they win.  Thought needs to go into your customer service, odds settlement policy, the bookmakers you quote and your staking and betting bank advice, plus many other things.

We have also (thankfully) seen the decline in popularity of premium rate phone tipsters who would hide behind unobtainable winners and could claim all sorts in their adverts, regardless of how good they are. Most of them were and still are, ridiculously overpriced and unprofitable.

Matt: And have you evolved your approach to reviewing tipsters? How exactly?

Pete: As SBC grew and expanded, so too did the time and resource we could plough into our reviews, which in turn really helped us improve them and set certain important standards.

The odds tracking we run for all our tipster reviews is a case in point, because through this we monitor how the advised odds hold up for each tip advised. If for example a tipster is advising and settling a bet at 16/1, yet within 15 minutes it is consistently likely to be a best 10/1, you need to know about that!

Just this week I have been examining a racing tipster claiming a ROI of over 45%, yet if taking the best price on their tips just 15 minutes after release, the ROI drops by 25%. Even if you can get the advised odds, these kind of price drops will only see your bookmaker account red flagged for restriction.

Our approach to betting banks is also another area we spent a lot of time working on, to ensure we could apply certain standards across the board to make for easy comparison.

Matt: Return on Investment, Return on Capital, points profit, strike-rate… there are a lot of ways of measuring the effectiveness of a tipster. Which is the one key calculation out of all of them you look for? And how would you rank those four?

Pete: Out of all of them I would tend towards Return on Capital, because ultimately it tells you how much money you will make if following. If I know a tipster makes 200% bank growth in an average year, I know that £2000 will make me £4000 and can put the profits in context.

Return on Investment is also very useful as it tells you how much you must stake to make a profit so should never be ignored. A tipster might claim they made £5000 profit last year, but if you had to risk £500,000 to achieve that (A ROI of just 1%) you wouldn’t want to follow them in!

Both ROI and ROC together are a potent way to judge a tipster.

In order of importance I would go: ROC, ROI, Points Profit, Strike-Rate.

SBC Subscription – The Best Money I Spend Each Year”

The SBC reviews gave me enough enough confidence to subscribe to a highly rated horse racing service…I have ended up subscribing to two more very good racing services and I am still making good profits to this day. The subs I pay each year to the SBC is some of the best money i spend.”

As written by’Phil’- An SBC member for several years

Matt: Over the course of the first 100 issues, you have reviewed, literally, hundreds of tipsters. Do you think there is more choice for punters looking for tipsters these days compared to when you started? And how can punters protect themselves from disreputable tipsters?

Pete: Yes, there is certainly more choice for punters these days. One simple reason for this is how easy it is to setup a website and take online payments these days, so anyone can do it.

There are also quite a few good ‘tipster hub’ website that do this for you, such as Pyckio, Betting Gods & Tipster Street (alongside our own Premium Section), who operate to high standards and feature a smattering of good tipsters.

In terms of protecting yourself, I would urge any punter interested in a tipster to firstly check sites like SBC and Geegeez for our own reviews on their service. If that uncovers nothing then don’t be afraid to send the tipster an email to ask questions like where do they proof, do they have a full history of results and what is their odds quoting and settling policy?

Very often the reply received will be indicative of their customer service and how genuine they are. And if something doesn’t seem quite right…move on! There are plenty of other tipsters out there that you can follow.

Matt: Do you think social media has had a positive impact on the tipster industry?

Pete: For those genuine tipsters, social media can be a useful way to notify followers of tips, to share information and interact with their audience and in that sense it helps.

On the other hand, I find social media to be a breeding ground for all kinds of bad tipster practice as it’s so easy to open a new Twitter or Facebook account claiming to be a betting guru. Most of them only make money through bookmaker affiliation when their followers post a loss and it’s something the authorities need to clamp down on. It’s illegal in many countries to earn money promoting a product or service without making it clear you have a vested interest.

Add into this the frankly ridiculous number of tipsters who claim to be able to win 10 bets on the run at short odds (a fool’s quest if ever there was one) and in many ways, social media hasn’t helped all that much.

Matt: What have been the biggest fundamental changes impacting punters in the past decade?

Pete: Certainly, the biggest change has been as regards racing punters when it comes to betting restrictions and closures.

You can still win money but depending on how much you stake, the sports you bet on and the tactics employed – these all have an impact on how long your accounts remain open for when betting on racing.

What started as a problem that impacted only high rollers at big stakes (and which the bookies denied took place) has become all too common-place.

468X60

Matt: How have restrictions and closures impacted your reviews and the tipsters you focus on?

Pete: With any racing tipster, it’s probably one of the most important considerations. For example, some racing tipsters that put up bets at 5/6pm the evening before racing offer little genuine chance for punters to get on in a sustainable way. Especially those tipping at the larger end of the market on horses the bookies are wary about money coming in for. The merest whiff of support for a horse at that time with the bookies will impact the odds and there is next to nothing available on the exchanges.

Instead, we focus on racing tipsters that put up tips you can realistically follow without too many issues. Our preference is for those sustainable, fair and practical services as whilst restrictions do exist, there are ways and means to prevent their impact for quite some time.

Naturally, we have also extended our focus on other sports like Football, Tennis & US Sports where this issue doesn’t exist. The odds in these markets are often extremely competitive and better value, plus of course – entirely sustainable as your account is less likely to get limited.

Matt: What are your thoughts on the promised changes to the bookmaking industry by the Gambling Commission?

Pete: They are long overdue as bookmakers have been getting away with murder for years. Whether it’s manipulating their terms and conditions to suit them, delaying or refusing withdrawal payments or encouraging problem gambling with the proliferation of FOBT machines.

This latter point is for me the kicker as it’s the only reason we have so many bookie shops open these days. Strict limitation on them might well force bookies to go back to taking bets.

Everything I hear tells me that change is coming and that the Gambling Commission (GC) in conjunction with the Competition & Markets Authority (CMA) mean business. Let’s hope so and that the all-powerful bookmaker lobby doesn’t see these measures watered down.

Matt: Do you hold out much hope for a ‘right to bet’ law compelling all bookmakers to lay all punters a bet?

Pete: Not now as I think the GC and CMA are more focused on FOBT’s and bookie behaviour/customer service rather than a right to bet.

Ultimately, I think any campaign for a ‘right to bet’ will be a slow burner and may take more time and pressure before it is considered by the authorities.

Perhaps the most likely approach for change may lie from bookmakers themselves and if any other firms fancy following the lead of Black Type who promise to lay all punters up to £500 on racing. No doubt other firms are watching their business model to see how they fare and may well launch something similar in future if they feel there is a market.

Matt: Have you any thoughts on other sports or betting markets that punters impacted by restrictions could look into?

Pete: As previously mentioned, sports like Football, Golf, Tennis, plus all the various US Sports offer some very sustainable profits to punters with the right tipsters.

Very often the betting markets for these sports are super competitive with very tight margins, all of which works in the punters favour.

In fact, just this week I have been interviewing one American based SBC member who is unable to bet on racing, yet has still made $1m dollars betting with tipsters in the past 5 years. He is proof that betting with tipsters does not have to be limited to racing!

TPR0317_468X60

Matt: Looking forward, which other sports do you cover currently, and do you plan to focus more on them in the future?

Pete: Aside from those already mentioned we also cover tipsters providing advice on, darts, rugby, American football, baseball, ice hockey and basketball.

We do plan on covering more tipsters from these sports in the future, especially given the quality of expert we are currently tracking.

Matt: What developments do you expect to see in the betting world in the next few years?

Pete:
Well I do expect to see more and more on e-sports in the next few years as it’s a rapidly growing market. Already I am proofing one clued-up e-sports tipster who has quietly been developing an impressive record. I expect more to come out of the woodwork soon!

Matt: Going back to your eleven years with SBC since 2006 – out of everything you have achieved, what are you most proud of?

Pete: Ultimately, it’s the fact that we have helped so many people make a profit from their betting through our advice, reviews and reports. There is nothing better than at the end of a hard day, picking up an email from someone thanking us for the difference we have made. It makes all the hard work worthwhile!

Matt: And finally, what are your plans for the future and the next 10 and the next 100 SBC magazines? 

Pete: In short – To keep on helping punters win and beat the bookies!

Just as over the last 11 years we have evolved and adapted our reviews to provide answers for punters in a changing betting world, so too will we moving forward.

The plan for the next 10 and 100 magazines is to keep uncovering more quality tipsters to provide even more choice and opportunity across a wide range of sports and markets. We will also be tackling the subjects that matter to punters, whether it be restrictions or even the use of automated software to help you bet – something we will be featuring in SBC 101. Yes, despite the ink barely being dry on SBC 100, already I am thinking of the next issue!

The ‘Oscars’ For Worst Bookmaker: Gold, Silver & Bronze Winners Revealed

As promised, I am back today with the final 2 categories as voted for by you in the 2017 SBC Awards – that of Best Odds Comparison Website and the biggy: Worst Bookmaker.

For those of you that missed my email on Friday with details on who you voted for as Best Bookmaker & Best Betting Website, you can read that here.

SBC Awards 468X60

 

Best Odds Comparison Website

Kick-starting things today with the Best Odds Comparison Website, a new category introduced for the first time in 2017, you voted as follows:

Best-odds-comparison

The inaugural Gold Award was taken by Oddschecker, who have quickly become the go-to website for many of you keen to seek out value for your bets. With a quick, easy to use odds comparison matrix and the ability to bet without leaving their website, it’s a very useful resource for punters keen to find the best odds.

The Silver Award went to Oddsportal, who offer up-to-date odds comparison on a huge range of betting markets, particularly useful for those of you betting on sports such as Football, NBA & NFL.

The Bronze award was taken by BestBetting.com, who provide odds comparison across several different markets including horse racing.

Your Worst Bookmaker Award

Onto one of the most anticipated ‘Awards’ – that of the ‘Worst Bookmaker’ whereby voting was extremely competitive!

Here is who you voted for:

worst-bookmaker

The somewhat surprising Gold Award Winner for Worst Bookmaker with 24% of the votes (I told you it was competitive) was Ladbrokes. Having taken the Bronze Award last year, whatever it is Ladbrokes have been doing in the past 12 months has clearly irked enough of you to put them forward as the worst bookmaker out there. Certainly the ‘Ladbrokes Life’ is not something many of you seem to be aspiring to!

Less surprisingly, the Silver Award went to Stan James, who continue to cement their place as one of the most universally-disliked bookmakers after claiming just under 21% of all votes. Stan James have long been known as one of the worst culprits for betting restrictions, a strong reason behind their poor reputation.

The Bronze Award this year went to last year’s Gold Winner, Boylesports who took 19.4% of your votes. Whether this is down to any improvement or just the fact other firms have got worse is very hard to say, yet the fact still remains there is much to dislike.

Other poorly rated Bookmakers included 4th placed Betfred with 16% of the votes and 5th placed Racebets with 8.41% of the vote.

Over $1 Million In Profits Betting…

My total profits since joining the Secret Betting Club are well over $1 million of which SBC approved tipsters account for about 25% of that amount.”

Why It Pays To Know The Best & Worst Bookmakers

As well as helping us have a bit of fun at their expense, there is a serious side to this award – namely to help raise awareness of those bookmakers treating punters poorly.

One of the main reasons these bookmakers are disliked so much is due to their notoriety as firms that both limit stakes and close accounts for anyone with even a modicum of ability.

Should you for example bother opening accounts with Ladbrokes, Stan James and Boylesports if you expect to win money betting?

In my opinion it is often not worth the time, unless you are keen to take advantage of new account opening offers or simply keen to try to win as much as you can, while you can.

In terms of our own tipster reviews, we regularly mark tipsters down who quote and settle bets to top prices available with the likes of Stan James and Boylesports.

Very often, such prices are a work of fiction as in reality they are not available to all but losing punters. And as the 2017 SBC Awards Report – over 80% of our members made a substantial profit betting last year, so these bookmakers will not be open to them.

Let Them Know They Won!

As it is extremely unlikely that either of Ladbrokes, Stan James or Boylesports will acknowledge their status as the top 3 most disliked bookmakers, it is up to us to raise awareness as the poor quality of service they offer.

With that in mind, feel free to share the following Gold, Silver & Bronze Award winner images on Social Media and link to this email (Via the SBC Blog)

Best Bookmaker & Website / Who YOU Voted For In The 2017 SBC Awards


This Sunday sees the Oscars – the biggest ‘Awards’ night of them all take place in Hollywood, yet for those of you more interested in betting than movies, you won’t want to miss out on the newly-released 2017 SBC Awards Report.

SBC Awards 2017 Cover

The 2017 SBC Awards are here to recognise the best of the tipping and betting world across a variety of markets, sports and costs (yes, we have a best free tipster category) and serve as a great starting point for any self-respecting shrewd punter.

Canvassing the opinions of both SBC members and you, the general betting public, an SBC Award is a much sought after recognition of quality.

Whilst the full SBC Awards Report and the various best tipster category winners are available only to you as a member of the Secret Betting Club, today I am pleased to reveal who won the Best Bookmaker and Best Betting Website categories….


The Best Bookmaker Award

Back in January, I sent out an email inviting your votes across 4 different categories open to the general betting public:

  • Best Bookmaker
  • Best Betting Website
  • Best Odds Comparison Website
  • Worst Bookmaker

Starting with the Best Bookmaker award – an extremely popular category, where you voted in huge numbers with the Gold, Silver & Bronze Awards as follows:

bestbookmaker-results

The eventual Gold Award winner, Bet365 polled over 50% of all votes cast to ensure a clear victory for the Stoke-based firm. Betfair took Silver with just over 20% of the vote, whilst Pinnacle scooped Bronze with approximately 9.5% of all your votes.

Over notable mentions go to William Hill (4th) and Smarkets (5th) who picked up 7.37% and 6.2% of your votes.

Your Best Betting Website

 I also asked you to vote for your favourite betting website, with the results as follows:

Best-betting-website

The proud recipient of this year’s Gold Award was Geegeez.co.uk – who also won by a very clear margin, taking 45% of the overall vote in this category. Geegeez is a largely free resource, featuring a whole host of tools to help your racing betting, including racecards, news, tips & form guides.

The Silver Award went to the ever popular Sporting Life website – another excellent all-round racing resource and the home to the equally popular free ‘Value Bets’ column run by Ben Linfoot.

Rounding things off, Bronze went to everyone’s go-to Odds Comparison website – Oddschecker, who continued to impress with their up-to-the-minute best odds on countless betting markets.

“I Made A Profit Of £42,134”

 During my first full year using proper bookmakers, I made a profit of £42,134.”

Racing & Darts: How Do Black Type’s Odds Compare?

>
On Friday, we released for FREE our special report on the new bookmaker, Black Type, who have been causing quite the stir given their ‘winners-welcome’ policy and guarantee to lay to lose up to £500 on any given bet.

If yet to read it download your FREE report PDF

Yet whilst their unique approach to bookmaking is very welcome, what many punters want to know is does their winners-welcome policy come at a cost in terms of the odds they offer customers?

Therefore, to help answer this question and gauge just how their odds stand up in comparison, I commissioned some detailed odds tracking across two key sports they keenly price up – horse racing and darts.

You can read about this in more detail in the Free Black Type Report, but for those of you interested in either Horse Racing or Darts (Especially given that the PDC World Championship starts on Thursday) I have summarised some of the key findings below.

Carousel_Smaller

Black Type Darts Odds In Comparison

To examine Black Type’s odds, my team and I analysed the prices they offered during the recent Grand Slam of Darts tournament in November.

To gauge this, we tracked the odds for both players across 37 Darts games from the Group Stages to the Quarter Finals, leaving us with 74 sets of odds to compare.

We recorded the odds for all 74 outcomes from 7 different bookmakers: Black Type, Bet365, Bet Victor, Paddy Power, Skybet, William Hill & Coral.

The odds were taken at various times of day to ensure we compiled a wide and varied cross section of data.

First off, here are the average odds for all 74 outcomes from each of the 7 bookmakers:

BT-Odds-Darts

Taking as an average, Bet365 lead the way with average odds of 2.72, with Black Type in 5thposition with an average of 2.62 – a small difference of 0.10.

As useful as this study was, it is slightly flawed for two reasons – firstly the low data sample and secondly the influence of a few larger priced ‘outliers’, which skewed the results.

TPR 468 X 60 Oct 16

Eliminating High-Priced Outliers

Although most matches in the Grand Slam of Darts were competitive, there were a few games which featured a very short-priced favourite, usually Michael Van Gerwen, and a big priced outsider.

The price of the outsider in these matches could be as high as 15/1 and with such a small pool of data, it only served to skewer the results.

For example, on the 14h November, Max Hopp was priced as big as 10/1 with Bet365 and as low as 7/1 with Paddy Power to beat Michael Van Gerwen.

By eliminating all bets at 5/1 and over from our data sample, we were then able to get a more realistic set of results. The 5 games we removed were:

14/11 Darren Webster to beat Phil Taylor. Odds ranged from 11/2 to 13/2
14/11 Max Hopp to beat Michael Van Gerwen. 7/1 to 10/1
16/11 Jeff Smith to beat Michael Van Gerwen. 11/2 to 7/1
16/11 Robert Thornton to beat Michael Van Gerwen. 13/2 to 10/1
18/11 Brendan Dolan to beat Michael Van Gerwen. 9/1 to 14/1

Here then is the table of average odds after removing these 5 players priced at over 5/1.

BT-Odds-Darts-No5-1

Without the 5 outsiders, the differences between all 7 bookies is marginal with Black Type more than holding their own. So small were the differences in fact, we had to illustrate them to 3 decimal points!

Final Thoughts on Darts Odds

Bearing in mind the limited data sample we could gather from the Grand Slam of Darts tournament, Black Type’s odds on the sport were clearly very competitive.

Considering how quick some of their bookmaking rivals are to close and restrict the accounts of punters that do well on Darts, there is even more reason to consider using Black Type for betting on the sport.

The likes of Bet365 and Bet Victor might on average offer marginally better odds, yet you do run the risk of being restricted if taking industry stand-out prices with them once too often.

Black Type Racing Overround In Comparison

To understand just how Black Type’s racing odds stand up, we also tracked and compared their overround with those on offer from 3 different bookmakers: Coral, William Hill & Ladbrokes.

We chose Coral, William Hill & Ladbrokes as they are considered more ‘traditional’ bookmakers, with a very large betting presence both online and in the high street.

Analysing 75 races in total, we recorded the odds at different times of day and over a variety of races to build as detailed and varied a set of data as possible.

This analysis ran from the 28/10/16 to the 13/11/16, which also included each race at the Cheltenham Open meeting – helping us gauge how strong their odds were at a major race meeting as well as the standard midweek racing fare.

Here then is the average overround across all 75 races from each of the 4 bookmakers:

BT-75sample

Taken as an average, Black Type’s overround was the best overall at 115.03%. This was 0.45% better than Ladbrokes, 1.29% better than William Hill and 2.70% better than Coral.

A very positive start to proceedings and an early indication that they offer good value racing odds.

Cheltenham Open Meeting

The Cheltenham Open Meeting ran from the 11th to the 13th November and with the high-quality racing on show, it was also useful to isolate the overrounds from this meeting for comparison purposes.

It is generally accepted that at these bigger meetings, with the greater volume of money swishing around, bookmakers pay more attention to their prices and take larger sized bets.

Here then is what we found at this meeting in terms of the overrounds from the 4 bookmakers:

BT-19chelt

Once again Black Type offered the lowest overround, although the differences between them and their competitors was bigger than ever.

The Black Type overround of 108.59% was 3.87% better than William Hill, 4.53% better than Ladbrokes and 6.63% better than Coral.

From this analysis, it is safe to say they more than held their own and their policy of ‘winners welcome’ does not come at a cost of worse odds in the horse racing markets.

If anything, the Black Type setup is allowing them to offer better value odds that favour the punter.

Perhaps the notion of employing skilled racing traders able to build and manage a proper racing book is not as dead a concept as some bookmakers would have you believe.

£1 for 60 days membership: The tipster that turned £1k into £6.9k

>
Without a doubt the main headline from the very latest Secret Betting Magazine (Issue 98 – released Tuesday) was the review of the red-hot racing tipster that has made a phenomenal 598% betting bank growth in 27 months.

Having racked up 747 points profit at a ROI of 22.6% during this period and with a special offer of 60 days subscription for just £1 (exclusively to SBC), I thought it wise to reveal a little bit more today.

Here then is a brief snapshot of what this tipster has achieved since June 2014 and just why they are taking the internet tipping world by storm!

£1000 Into £6,981 Since July 2014

As ever, two of the best indicators for the profitability of any tipster is their Return on Investment (ROI) and Return on Capital (ROC).

Starting off with ROI, this is a figure which helps to outline how much you need to stake to make a profit betting by following their tips.

Here, this tipster thrives with a 22.6% ROI from 2,386 bets since 2014. This also equates to a 747-point profit from 3,306 points staked.

ROI-sbc98

It’s not just ROI that helps, but also Return on Capital (ROC, although also known as betting bank growth), which informs you how much money you need to allocate to follow a tipster.

As the table below indicates, over the same period and to our advised betting bank, this tipster has made 598.1% ROC or betting bank growth.

This 598.1% ROC figure has been generated consistently over the years with 118.2% in 2014(the service started in July of that year), 196.9% in 2015 and 283% so far in 2016.

ROC-sbc98

Putting that 598.1% figure into real money…

  • £500 invested in 2014 would now be worth £3,490
  • £1000 invested in 2014 would now be worth £6,981
  • £2000 invested in 2014 would now be worth £13,962
  • £4000 invested in 2014 would now be worth £27,924

A Minimum Profit Of 7.9% ROI At Betfair SP

As with every racing tipster we review, we also looked at their performance to Betfair SP (minus 5% commission) to see if there is potential to follow them on the exchange.

We discovered that over the 2386 bets advised, you would have made a 259.9-point profit at 7.9% ROI if betting at Betfair SP in this way. Factoring in the likelihood you would pay a lower commission than 5% over time, it is likely you would have easily bettered this sum.

Below is the full table of performance comparing advised odds to Betfair SP.

advised-odds-betfair

83.2% ROI At Major Festival Meetings!

In our review analysis, we also noted their excellent performance betting in the major festival meetings. This was a combination of antepost and normal tips, which whilst only 181 in total, stack up very well indeed with a 195 point profit at 83.2 ROI!

Although the data sample isn’t the biggest, it does go to highlight a potential strong area of expertise.
