On Trial

Each month I trial several tipsters to see if they have what it takes to make it into The Portfolio. Below are some of the guys who didn’t quite make the cut or spent some time in the Portfolio but have since been removed either for underachieving or because I simply felt they had run their course:

FormBet’s Daily Best Bets page comprises of 3 all new systems. If you don’t have time to assess the excellent FormBet ratings each day, or would just like your betting simplified, this section is for you. The selections are carefully crafted systematic bets, based on logical criteria. Each system will display daily selections in the relevant table, updated daily shortly after 8am. A chart with calculations below each one shows past performance of every single qualifier we’ve published:

  1. The Grinder – This system is designed to grind out a steady stream of solid winners. A strike rate of around 35% should be expected. Filtering for value will increase Yield%, while only reducing the strike rate slightly.
  2. The Doubler – A high strike rate for this system means it is especially suited to multiple bets, such as Doubles and Trebles. These should not be filtered for value, which reduces strike rate.
  3. The Express – On the fast track to success, the Express provides a system with a higher number of qualifiers for a faster ride. Jump on board for all the thrills.

Bet Catalyst – I utilise my very own and unique speed ratings to create shortlists. From these shortlists I then identify value selections using a ‘5 Good Reasons’ process.

@DaveWholey PDC World Championship Darts selections – see blog for details

@krburt football selections – Kelvin specialises in Time of First Goal and Both Teams to Score markets.  All tips backed up by informative stats.  See blog for details.

Man of the Match is an up and coming market that I’m keen to get involved in and will trial throughout March.  I’ve been keeping a close eye on ‏@ManOTheMatchBet on twitter and he appears to be having a lot of success.  To get the early value donate via his website.  Selections will be emailed an hour before tweeting them.  The main problem with this market could be that the driving force is currently BetVictor and we all know how difficult it is to keep an account open with those guys.  Ladbrokes have started to take an interest and Bet365 and Boyles priced up the Capital One Cup final so it could soon be a regular for all bookmakers.

Another service I am going to be proofing in March is @Georgedempsey1 NBA and MLS picks.  George is now apart of Team Terry who we have trailed before, but with no success, however his NBA picks over the past couple of months appear to be turning over a profit and I know from last year that he is very knowledgeable about MLS (season starts in March).  Team Terry currently have an offer to join for the rest of the season for a flat rate £9.97.

Sportyy Spanish Football Picks – The Sportyy philosophy is to treat the world of sports betting as a serious investment, not only as a game, they believe that through thorough analysis in combination with a good risk management system it is possible to make money consistently from betting.  With each pick they will recommend what percentage of your bank to invest, usually around 1-2%.  For the purposes of the trial we will use a starting bank of £500.

Simon Hoppers Top Football Lays – After a recent positive write up from the Secret Betting Club we are going to trial Simon Hoppers top football lays.  For the trial i will be staking a £5 (1 point) liability on each selection, for this weeks selections click link.

RaceClear Pro – The Raceclear Team has over a decade of experience at beating the bookmakers on horse racing.  Using a sophisticated computer modelling system their results show a healthy profit over a sustained period.  Results from my 8 day trial Oct 2012 ROI=-75.2%.  Results from my 13 day trial Jan 2013 ROI=+71.5%.  I have been offered another 1 month free trial for this service but am not going to take it up because i feel RaceClear Pro will never fit into the portfolio at this time due to the hefty fees involved.

BettingExpert’s Value Angle – After a recent positive write up from the Secret Betting Club the value angle looks worth a go.  Each day their racing analyst Stephen post’s his Value Angle, a long priced selection that is bound to out run its odds.  22-30 Nov 2012 -7 pts, Dec 2012 LSP=-6 pts, ROI=-46%

  1. Have you ever tried rwhorseracing.co.uk please and if so any positives or negatives,regards,simon

    • Hi Simon I personally haven’t come across these guys but I always like a site that has a Results page. However I would want to see 3rd party proofing of these results before I would consider signing up.

  2. Many thanks for getting back to me,appreciated.They do have a results page going back over 3 years but proofed to relayman is what I dont get.Thanks anyway I will remain pondering my next move,Regards,Simon

  3. Hi, I am Richard Fox the person behind the Aiden Monroe service, which I understand you are monitoring or putting on trial..

    As a featured tipster on the betadvisor site means I am allowed to run my own private service for the discerning client.

    The private lservice is monitored by both betting survellance and of course http://www.racingproofing.com, which have verified my results since October 2011. You may wish to consider in singing up to my private service on http://www.horse-racing-profit.com so that you are able to get prices advised in real time, or should I say at better odds as they go out before betadvisor clients receive the selections. On the betadvisor service I have to quote lower prices in general.

    I provide a fair odds policy (best price has to be available with at least with two of the main high street bookmakers, otherwise the second general price is quoted).

    In addition a free month is provided on any calendar month that records a loss, not possible with my betadvisor service.

    This provides some insurance that it is very much in my interest to gain a profit within any said month otherwise I receive no remuneration for the following month. Furthermore, I provide reasonable discounts to my clients based on performance. As an example, clients have received discounts ranging from 25 to 50 percent off the purchase price over the last four months, for each individual month despite the results being fairly positive over the summer.

    I am my own worst critic, and it’s about giving back not taking more. If you register with my service you will be entitled to a 25 percent discount on any purchase plan you subciribe to and gain additional free days on the length of your subscription plan.

    Best regards


    • I am on hols at the mo Richard but appreciate the email. I’ve been enjoying your service so am looking to continue going forward. Will drop u a msg on my return. Cheers Trev

  4. Hi Richard

    Do you think it would be possible to get a hold of that discount code for my clients today as I need to send them the end of month email containing results for August?

    Cheers Trev

  5. Hi Richard
    Sorry I only just noticed this message. An affiliate scheme usually ranges anything from 10-40% of the monthly fee paid by a client I send your way.
    Cheers Trev

  6. Great shout on Harrison Stickle today Richard. I managed to pick it up at 33’s ;)))
