I gave up a tipster I’d been following for months with no success, I say no success, I had lost close to £300. You know what happened this week.
I can take the blame for not having more faith but my decision wasn’t purely results based. I find certain tipsters are purely interested in their stats, sometimes much more so that ensuring their subscribers are getting a good service.
This is reflected in tipsters snapping up top prices from soft bookmakers, often when there are no suitable alternatives for punters to back. This was a big part of my decision so whilst I lost out on about £100 profit at the weekend it still feels the right thing to do.
I’ve reduced the volume of tipsters I’m following to about 10 right now. Some of those I’ve put my faith in are having a bit of a mare.
UKRB who stole the headlines last weekend with 8 winners from 8, had lost 14 tips in a row (based on my stats) which has all but wiped out my profit.
DSSnooker who was my most profitable tipster for a long time, reaching +40pts at one stage has lost 21 of his last 22 tips I’ve backed and my ROI is down at just 7% approaching 250 bets.
The Super Boost (not a tipster) is a feature offered by several of the leading bookmakers and was winning me a fair bit of money, well that’s gone to shit as well. The last 6 Super Boosts I’ve backed have all lost.
That’s a lot of negativity and whilst I apologise for that, you have to appreciate this is what it’s like being a punter some weeks. I’m still following those tipsters above, but be prepared for these losing runs to happen.
Congratulations to Ben Coley for the birth of his second child. He’s my go to tipster now with +32.7pts of profit and an 18.25% ROI.
The list of tipsters I have complete faith in right now can certainly be counted on one hand and who’s to say their poor runs are not coming soon.
All that said, even with a ROI as low as 3.45%, this for me is more about building this tipster comparison site than winning money from my bets. I want to offer honest reviews of tipster services that can help punters make wise choices. If I win a few pennies as a result, that’s a bonus.
