We might be friends for coming up 4 years now & we done a show together for over 80 episodes but Jamie is one of the most consistent performers in the Golf Tipping world and does a great job previewing for Betting Odds!
My mate, my old right hand man, Mr Consistency Broadhurst!
Sean Rafferty for me is the Greatest of all the Darts tipsters out there! Studies hard, gives informative write ups about matches and advises if to tip or to leave it alone. Will only advise you to back them if there is a massive case for it. Extremely knowledgeable & a good lad! Deserves far more credit & publicity!
Keep banging in them winners Raffo 👑
I like Gary. That sounds like I know him. I don’t. He kindly offered me free access to his Telegram channel last year and I made a healthy profit after a slow start. As with any successful tipster I found odds availability to be an issue, with the prices tumbling very quickly.
But even missing out on the top price I was returning a good profit. It all went wrong when I reached out to his group and asked them if they could leave a review of his service on this website. The reply was quite straightforward, **** off!!
I understand their concern. Gary doesn’t really promote his service and chooses not to track his profit/loss. He’s good enough that he’s built a clan of loyal followers and they continue to sign up. The last thing they want is anyone else knowing about his tips, as that risks the odds being slashed even quicker and they might lose a few pounds of profit.
So apologies to all those members already in the group for adding this review. Actually no. I take that back. You were mean to me, so I don’t apologise and I hope Gary gets even more sign ups to his excellent tipster channel.
The best rugby tipster out there from my experience. I’ve been in close contact with Alex for a while now and I couldn’t fault him. Great value tips both pre match and inplay with thorough reasoning behind each pick. Honest, helpful and overall great lad. Would recommend.
Kris is one of the most honest, down to earth people in the business. A lot of people are in this game to just maximise profits and boast about their numbers – Kris however, Genuinely cares about his customers and their is definitely a sense of “we are in this together”.
As well as obviously running an incredibly successful service – Kris puts so much time into helping his community and treats us like a family rather than just customers.
The Stats from Kris speak for themselves and my original thought process when signing up was essentially – “if I’m gonna be profitable, then why not choose a service where I can get the added bonus of feeling like someone has got my back?”
I have the upmost respect for Richard Anderson and his OnTheOche service. To be in the game for 17 years is a great advert to the service he provides. Having tipped on and off on darts for nearly a decade I know how difficult it can be.
Richard kindly gave me free access to his service. I love the way it operates with tips sent out by email with a preview with every selection. The volume of tips is quite low and I was following for several months, unfortunately during a poor spell of results.
I’m well aware this can happen so I’m not basing my review on my results, but more on the overall stats since the service began. Darts offers limited opportunities to bet and with a low volume of tips, the average monthly profit is likely to fall somewhere between 1-3pts (it’s +1.16pts per month since the service began). With a monthly sign up fee of around £35, you need to be investing at least £50 per point to make this service viable.
From personal experience, betting that much on a smaller sport like darts isn’t always possible. So whilst I really like the way this service is run, I just don’t think the numbers quite add up. That said, there is a 14 day free trial, so give it a go yourself.
Anon Darts Bets kindly gave me a trial to his service for one month. He focuses on the 180s markets and there can be quite a high volume of selections. Tips are displayed in a spreadsheet style format via his Telegram channel along with the market, his tissue price, the best odds available, the bookmaker and the recommended stake. It couldn’t be simpler.
I finished the trial with a profit of +4.6pts and a ROI of 8.2%. There were times when odds availability was an issue, but that’s proven the case for me with my bookmaker limitations. Looking back now, after a frustrating 7 months of gambling, those stats are very good and certainly worthy of a recommendation.
There is a full results sheet available from the Twitter bio and an overall ROI just shy of 10%. With very few darts tipsters around, Anon would be my first recommendation.
Been following Kris since mid 2022 and have been profitable ever since as easily seen from his P/L. His consistent effort and time he puts into his bets gives myself trust that he’s one of the best tipsters out there. Personally I have reached out to him about various things and always has time to get back to me.
Nothing but good words for him!
I’ve followed Kris from the very start and it didn’t take long to realise that sticking with him long term would bring me extra cash. 357 units profit in 21 months and 20 profitable months out of 21 tells its own story. Consistent and solid as a rock. Subscription is worth every penny! I’m about £6200 up in 21 months after placing £15-£25 a unit for bets.
Does everything a 5 star tipster should. Constantly beats the closing line and finds value every week, without fail. Doesn’t just post bets, he regularly gives out advice on how to be successful in betting over the long term. The amount of work he puts in, he could charge double! Seriously, nothing but immense praise for what he does. Recommend!
I liked the service a lot when it started but things have improved with the morning email, Neil gives in depth analysis and stats to support all his selections, before he used to just give you bets now all bets come well before kick off.
Long term I’m up £1500 so far from £20-25 bets
Been following Sam’s tips for close to eight months now, they’re nothing but sheer class. He’s honestly the one who fueled my passion for betting. Consistently made decent profits while tailing on his bets. Honestly this is the closest to perfect you can get for an absolutely free service. Would 100% recommend, top top lad
Also worth noting that he almost always beats the closing line for his bets. He spots value so easily. Can’t praise this man enough 👏
Sam Ingram is an enigma among tipsters for solely the reason that his returns on big markets are by far the best the I have come across. Being profitable in liquid markets is very hard, but somehow he manages to do that, and by a great ROI. He tackles most of the big leagues and when internationals come around he delivers there also. There is no coincidence that he has a big following after years of profitability, and it is very obvious that there is a lot of time and research that goes into each of his picks. So yeah, if you wanna see how the professionals go about their betting, he is a must follow.
As many reviews have mentioned, following Mark over the years on various platforms (mainly Twitter & podcasts) gives me confidence in following tips from a genuine, authentic and proven tipster. The Telegram platform is great, easy to follow with links to each tip & extensive reasoning provided. Only been involved for a short period but can see it being a regular subscription – the tips on day 1 this month paid for the months subs and then some! Would highly recommend Mark’s service.
Have been following Mark for a number of years through his various projects and didn’t have to think twice when he started up the WLB Service.
A service which has netted me a real decent bit of profit since the start but it’s the knowledge gained using Marks service that has paid off the most. As he says his DMS are always open and always replies no matter how stupid the question is. All his tips are well researched and lots of detail given to back up the selection. Prices generally hold with only a few price drops depending on the bookie or bet type. William Hill bets probably being the hardest bets to get on due to them changing odds quicker or restricting accounts I have found. Offers alternative bookies with odds for bets which is great and let’s the group know when to reback at better prices when their is a drift. I think you learn the most about a tipster during the tough runs and Mark never hides from it and gives great feedback during these (not so often) times. Honestly don’t know when this man sleeps the amount of work he puts into the service. Highly recommend!!!
Having followed Mark’s various blogs and free tips for some time (with a lot of success) I’ve recently joined his VIP service, which now offers two different channels.
The Premium channel has some excellent write ups for all the bets, which is a big plus for me. And the prices seem to be holding (mostly) as well – so you can actually read the write ups and consider each bet for yourself too. I have followed other tipsters where you have to take the bets instantly or the prices are gone.
Bets in the Premium channel are widely available and Mark also explains the various different options available on various books, which can be really helpful if you’ve burned your account with any particular book.
The Pro channel is only new so it’s still evolving but so far it seems to be more akin to the type of bets Mark gives on his podcasts, but there’s more of them, and you get them earlier – which helps you get more value!
There is also an Extra channel, where the tips are not tracked. This I see as a chance to have a bit of fun. There are suggestions for various ACCAs in the win, BTTS & cards markets. I’ve been doing a little bit of mix’n’match with these tips and have had some great success.
P&L figures are consistent and there is definitely transparency. Lots of tipsters are not transparent at all, no matter how much they claim that they are.
Mark is also very approachable and responsive to DM’s so, all in all, a great tipster to follow.
Whatever Mark doesn’t know about tipping, it isn’t worth knowing. The best in the business!
The effort, time and scrutiny he puts into his own work is second to none.
I have been following Mark for a long time now and he has taught me loads!
His service covers a variety of leagues, lots of different angles and is ALWAYS backed up with a data driven and logical approach.
Long may this continue & selfishly hope Mark doesn’t hang up the tips anytime soon!
Followed Mark since early We Love Betting Days (WLB). His knowledge his second to none, in my opinion. His comprehensive analysis of UK, European and World Football is expressed on The Weekly Matchbook and Betfair Podcasts.
Why should you join WLB?
Well obviously, most importantly Mark has provided consistent profit since his Service became paid. Over 35 months Mark has achieved over 9% ROI with Over 412 + Units of Profit.
Has there been Ups and Downs?
As a Member of course there has, but over 35 Months there has only been 6 losing Months. This equates to 29 Winning Months (83%) and 6 Losing Months (17%). I have made consistent steady profit throughout.
The service consists of 3 WLB Channels. The Main Channel is:-
Mark provides write ups on all plays in this Channel. This mostly covers the Cards, Goals and Bet Builder type plays. He provides alternative books so you can ‘get on’ and provide what he deems as a minimum price you should aim for.
This is a new Channel and is currently in it’s infancy. This provides alternative angles in 1X2 Markets, Goals and Asian Lines. This is ideal for someone who has, as most of us has, been restricted over the years. So therefore Mark is aiming to choose plays in the most liquid Markets, going forward.
This Channel provides additional material in which Mark knows not everyone can get on. Therefore he puts pointers or Notes in here of ‘value’. These picks are not on the overall P&L.
Also of interest are his data drops. He shares these with Subs. Xg, Cards, Goals etc are covered. I find this data particularly helpful, as I have a keen interest in the EFL. I use this data to assist me in any plays I might have during the Season.
Mark has been consistently transparent while running this Service. He always takes time to get back to you if you have any issues or questions. He is also not one to ‘stand still’. He sends out surveys to Members and he is always ‘open’ to new ideas to improve the Service, which he has done. I would highly recommend joining Mark’s Service.
Mark’s WLB service is the best tipping service I have come across. The selections come with the thorough research and evidence base. The volume is manageable and available with a variety of bookmakers. I have been a member of the service for around a year and have earned a strong ROI and an all round great service in the group
I’ve come across Mark on various platforms over the years and always viewed him as a solid tipster who sees the betting game in a similar way to me. I had no hesitation to sign up to his service when I became aware of it. The service itself has been profitable and Mark is very transparent with his results and reasoning for his bets. The stats exports he provides are also invaluable for those who want to make their own stats-based plays. I’d recommend the service to anyone thinking of signing up.
I’ve followed Mark on various platforms for almost a decade, from his free titbits on Twitter, through to We Love Betting and now the members service.
Mark’s service is first class. He is transparent about his P&L, shares the data which accompanies his thinking and provides detailed explanation about all of his selections, most of which see the price hold up so you don’t feel you have to rush to place bets immediately after he posts them. The ROI at 9% over a long period of time is excellent and Mark quite rightly talks to members about the need to focus on long-term profit and a consistent staking plan as, with all betting, there can be days when you can lose money. On the very rare occasions this does happen, Mark is very open about this and, although I can’t speak for all members, his honesty and likeability is the reason we trust the process so much.
I would 100% recommend Mark and his subscription service to anyone.
I have been following Mark for many years across various channels, and have always been impressed with his work. His selections are well researched and well explained, and you certainly get the feeling that the guy is genuine and professional.
Unsurprisingly, the paid service is one of the best around when it comes to football betting. Mark has an encyclopaedic knowledge of more leagues than anybody else I’ve seen, and his versatility means that opportunities are found in all sorts of markets ranging from cards, to goals, to fouls, and Asian lines.
Very strong recommendation for Mark’s paid service.
Mark has been doing this a long time and throughout that period has produced very successful results. Mark provides a great service, with tips that hold value and also explanation. As well as that, Mark provides the data so you can seek your own angles as well. Would highly recommend
There’s no other way to describe it, Mark has changed my life. I’ve followed his tips, video and online content for many a year. His knowledge is second to none, and he imparts this knowledge on to others when it can be so easy to hold on to it himself. All his tips are well presented, talked through with logic and data, which both novices and experts appreciate. He has managed to tweak his bets in order for punters to get on them, rather than just looking to smash closing lines (which isn’t a bad thing, but not everyone can be successful long term doing this). He’s been a great help if I’ve had any questions, he’s answered them quickly, and I know he’s a busy man. I’m only at a stage where I am with betting because I started following Mark, and I couldn’t be more grateful. For those who look to understand why to place a certain bet, followed by logic, data, and backed up long term proven results, look no further.
Mark must have no normal life, as the detail he goes into, the work he must put in is truly Herculean. He also appears on a Football betting podcast most weeks, and that is truly amazing.
I ignore all selections using William Hill as I abandoned them years ago. Bet365 hold the prices longest and will take a reasonable stake.
Mark actually is too honest really as he even advises cashout and rebets when new prices go up elsewhere.
Overall..just one way to describe Mark…Total Integrity.
Mark is a fantastic tipster and provides excellent value for money and I have been in consistent profit since I started following the service. There is an always explanation behind the tip and he doesn’t just post random tips. They are always backed up with excellent data and a range of different sites are recommended. Mark always answers any questions and is very transparent. An excellent tipster who I trust and judge.
I’m new to Mark’s Premium service..well 3 months in and this is my review of that time and Mark in general. First off his results speak for themselves, amazing profit over a few years now and shows no sign of slowing down. Sure even I’ve witnessed miniscule downturns in my brief time but I like about Mark is that he doesn’t hide from them either. We had a great detailed post after a very difficult weekend as I recall and it just reinstated my belief and even more so reinstated that Mark is a top honest guy who doesn’t shy away from even the difficult times. Difficult times and Mark are not often found in the same sentence tho and that is why I’m fully invested in his model, his picks and most of all his results. Always available to chat by DM which is another huge plus despite his busy schedule. All in all I honestly dont think I’d pay for or switch to another service as long as Mark is doing his thing..he’s got himself a lifer here.. all the stars👍
Having followed Mark from the early days of We Love Betting I decided to take the plunge and sign up for his paid premium service.
Having used the service for a while now, I must say it’s been a game-changer for me. The tips are well-researched and include just the right amount of information. It has also stopped me making as many mug punts with little to no research. All round I couldn’t be happier and will continue to recommend the service to others.
I have followed mark over the past few years on his podcasts and I have always found him to be an extremely knowledgeable pundit on football. I have been subscribed to his service for two years now and its offering is amazing. The datasets provided are a lovely boost to the quality he provides.
I have followed Mark since the beginning of his paid betting service and have been very happy with the results. Mark consistently makes profits, but is open and honest about bad periods and does not feel the need to hide his losses or amend his staking after a period of poor variance.
Most importantly for me it is very easy to get on Mark’s bets. He does not tip weeks in advance on opening lines, which means that Mark’s selections do not lead to gambling restrictions and the prices/lines do not crash immediately after tipping.
Alongside his bets Mark provides extensive justification and research, so you can be sure that all of his selections are thoroughly considered and he will not tip if he doesn’t think a bet is value. As well as this Mark provides a large selection of data to subscribers that I often use for my own bets.
Mark has recently launched an exchange friendly service and I am excited to see how that develops as well.
I would recommend the service to anyone.
Only followed for the last month and a half but couldn’t be happier with gaining over 20 units worth of profit so far. Mark clearly put a lot of work into his tips and results show. Analysis is given with every bet backed up with stats which I really enjoy. Tips are given out with plenty notice, the best odds from best bookies and also alternative bookies which I really can’t fault. Odds rarely drop meaning you can get on all of marks bets. An all in all great service without any complaints and would highly recommend.
The thing that really stands out about Mark’s tips is how transparent the whole process is. The use of data means there’s no going on gut feeling, it’s all laid out for you exactly why you’re putting your money on the tips. He doesn’t shy away if there’s a poor run of form (which happens incredibly rarely), but the overall results over a long period of time more than speak for themselves. Would highly recommend as a tipster, comfortably the best one I’ve used.
I have been following Mark’s service since the beginning of 2021, and I love it.
First of all, the results speak for themselves. In the last 36 months, he only had 6 losing months, which resulted in more than 400 units of profit and a positive ROI of 9%. This ROI is really good when betting on football.
Most of the bets have a great explanation, something that usually I don’t take in mind, but I know that some people do.
In the last two years and a half I have been using this service, there have been some changes. Most recently, a new channel has been created, this more football bets.
I like the volume and, contrary to other services, even if you take the bet later, the odds are still there. You don’t need to rush to take the bet.
The service doesn’t have a chat channel, but Mark is fast answering our doubts when we message him on Twitter.
5-star service, without a doubt!
I have followed Mark for many years now, from his free pages, through the WLB years and have recently signed up to his paid service.
He is consistent as his results will testify and all his tips are reasoned and explained in simple terms so even I can understand. I am so glad that I signed up and wished I had earlier!!
Another aspect of his service is he is extremely approachable and is always courteous and friendly in his replies to any DM or open message. I have always found this to be the case and not something you can say about every tipster.
I heartily recommend
Gives an in depth analysis of each bet on Telegram. Easy to follow tips with a selection of bookies used and prices for each bet. Most bets seem to be based around bet builders and multiples.
Have only been subscribed since mid September but analysis and results are encouraging.
Mark is always available and seems very approachable. Posts regularly about being open to feedback.
Quite simply the best tipster there is, his results are unbelievable especially over such a long period. The only negative I can say is that due to being too good, it can take a while to get into his group.
His results are generally life changing though, even if you can’t get into his group, it’s worth following him on Twitter as he shares a lot of free bets that hold value.
I subscribed to Kris Jones at the start of the year and haven’t been disappointed. I’ve turned a nice little profit in that time which has helped part-fund my flat refurb and a couple of beers at the footy 😉.
Kris’ lack of volume was listed as a negative but personally I see that as a positive. I look for quality over quantity and don’t have the time to post dozens of bets anyway. His long descriptions reassure me that all the research has been done, and more often than not he’s right.
Been following this tipster for over a year now and I can’t fault them. I love the fact they have a solid staking plan and stick to it for every bet and don’t chase losses. Odds aren’t nothing crazy but it’s all for long term profit which is exactly what I have made so I’ll be with them for a long time.
Have followed these guys for nearly a year. Went through a shaky patch at the start of 2023 but changed their staking style to quality over quantity which has definitely helped. Overall I’ve had a profitable year with them, and they are easy to contact and interact with on Twitter. Would recommend
I discovered R10 through Twitter and his stats looked too good to be true! After following for one month now I can say that he is the best football tipster I have ever followed, betting on a wide variance of markets.
Quality tips and mostly on Bet365 so it’s easy to follow
I found The Caddy to be profitable and their tips were manageable and easy to follow. I’d previously found some golf tipsters to have far too many bets for my bank roll.
They provide good midway point updates without constantly bombarding you with detail and in my experience we’re often even profitable in weeks when they didn’t tip the outright winner.
The cream eventually rises to the top. In a world full of fakes and bad take artists, David is none of the above. Hard to describe why David is the best. Maybe it’s the ROI? Never seen anything like it. Into DFS? He’s got that three letter acronym nailed down too. PGA? or DPT? Yep. We got those too. Anybody want some CLV? Who’s got tickets at +2200 for Hovland and the 2024 PGA? We do. I bet all sports and play as much DFS as I can; David is the only form of information that I blindly follow. You’re simply missing out if you don’t. Come join us in the WDS Discord too. Personalized DFS roster questions? Fire them off and watch the wizardy in real time. I firmly believe that David is the best at what he does.
Deep Dive Golf is a fantastic.
His knowledge and detailed breakdowns are great. He has a wonderful passion for golf. You can see during each and every YouTube show he does.
He is always going out of his way to help the Win Daily Community with betting and DFS. He provides the details to back up his picks. He goes out of his way to help.
He has a gift at finding hidden value each and every week. He has picked tournament winners that have been 60-1, 80-1 and 65-1. ROI has been great and he has helped me build a nice bankroll.
Best part, it is not just the PGA, it is DP World Tour also.
This tipster has excellent knowledge, one of the best golf tipsters but unfortunately he bets on all the tours and these are only available with a couple of bookies. I used skybet and lost 3 accnts in 2 months backing his tips. Another of those who know their stuff but simply NO WAY the tipster of any followers are winning long term backing them.
DeepDiveGolf always conducts detailed research and analysis before making his weekly selections; as is evident in the commentary he provides with every pick.
He’s clearly passionate about the sport and is dedicated to offering a valuable service to his subscribers. He responds quickly to queries and always injects a dose of dry wit!
You can’t argue with his track record/results!
David at Deep Dive Golf is as consistent and reliable as any sports tipster I have come across in my time in wagering and media. He knows what his edge(s) is and uses it regularly to deliver profitable plays and always manages to find a variety of prices to hit too rather than being a one tricky pony. Highly recommend following his work closely for the upcoming golf seasons.
I first found David Bieleski on a win daily YouTube about a year ago and have been following him ever since. Life gets busy and I lost interest in golf over two decades ago. Hearing him passionately speak about these pros really has given me intimate knowledge of their character and their skills. It’s not only helped me build winning lineups but he has made me enjoy golf again. Thank you David! My first week listening to him put my ledger in the black and I’ve been there ever since. Check him out, very knowledgeable & extremely entertaining. You’ll find yourself wanting to have a pint with him someday.
I’ve been tailing Titanic’s golf cards for about eighteen months, and I’ve yet to interact with another bettor as focused on transparency and accountability with results like his. He constantly preaches responsible betting within the constraints of your own personal bankroll, and he keeps each event’s card to a reasonable size to avoid tanking EV and ROI.
I’ve only tracked my personal results tailing his action since January 2023, but my numbers show a ~19% ROI, and I know I missed out on a few outright winners Titanic hit that I failed to get down on personally. If you’re into wagering on golf and enjoy winning, you could do a lot worse!
Additionally, Titanic has fostered an awesome community of gamblers in a Discord server where we banter, discuss plays, and sweat the picks together. We’d love to have you!
As a long term follower, I am very impressed with the consistency of SJP Golf Tips. If their tips are not winning, they are invariably in the hunt come Sunday afternoon! 8 years in a row over 100pts of profit, and a really strong 2nd half of 2023 could still see that run extended, after hitting Kim and Morikawa FRL in recent week! Definitely recommend.
I have been following Dave over at WinDailySports since he joined last year as an expert analyst. His profit margins are incredible. The ROI is almost unbelievable, he’s hit 80-1, 80-1, 65-1, and 80-1….not for the year, that’s four four weeks straight. The man is a machine and a tremendous bankroll builder.
I’ve been following Brad for a while since he started on twitter and also on Patreon paid service, his professional approach to his tips really helps his followers get the best prices, he give 5 minute warnings on a private forum to give followers enough notice to get accounts ready to grab the best prices, he uses most of the main bookies and I’m yet to have any restrictions on my accounts. Would highly recommend his service, his knowledge and research is second to none.
Appeared he was putting out of lots of claims of winning golfers, so decided to take a look for myself.
Found his posts were just a list of golfer names. I asked whether he allocated a unit system to his players, claimed that he had always recommended one unit on every player as he “didn’t want to influence people’s spending in that way”. Pointed out that is the point of units, that people can then set a spending comfortable to their bankroll. Obviously it makes no sense to recommend 1 unit on Viktor Hovland at 14/1 and also 1 unit on Callum Tarren at 200/1. He didn’t seem to understand that was an issue.
Then claimed he was up 700 pts of profit, then later posted an article claiming he had an ROI of 701%. Very concerning he didn’t understand what units were and what ROI is. When I pointed out this was in fact not how ROI is calculated, then he blocked me.
Reports online that he changes selections and deletes picks. Also reports he has posted racing tips after the horses have already jumped.
Another one to the block list. Told me to "take the hint" when ignoring my requests to see P/L sheets. Also had info on him changing results & deleting picks. Apparently just gone premium on discord. Will be bringing more info but AVOID!!!!@GingerJoeRacing pic.twitter.com/cTTYGSdokO
— The Tipster Spotlight 🔦 (@TipsSpotlight) July 27, 2023
I followed Jamie Worsley for several months, backing all of his selections. He was writing for the Betfred Blog which meant I was often able to snap up bigger prices with other bookmakers. I also backed all of his Twitter feed tips, which focused on the smaller tours.
The volume was high and I was only betting small stakes. In the end it just felt like a grind and the return wasn’t good enough to warrant going forward. I ended with a 2% ROI, just shy of 400 bets. To be fair I did miss two winners, totally my fault and that would have probably pushed my ROI over 5%.
Definitely one of the good guys but there are better golf tipsters around in my opinion with the likes of Ben Coley & Matt Vincenzi proving a lot more profitable for me.
Charging for a chat group which is made up of 97% mug punters. The tipster said roi, profit and points returned were the same thing. He puts on cross doubles at 1000/1. Simply not viable to bet on. No historical results. Stats CANNOT be trusted as didn’t know what roi was. Kicked out the only 2 people in his group who pulled him. Only wants mugs paying him who don’t know any better.
Accnt restrictions plus limited bookies with markets plus using joke bookies and stand out prices. Simply not possible to place the bets and make money. Following him and Bradley Todd got all my accnts closed in 2 weeks. Not the tipsters fault but a great tipster? Yes? Great to make money from? No way.
Michael has had a phenomenal 2023 so far with a quite ludicrous Profit and ROI. He covers loads of tours which can be hard to keep up with but the profits make it all worthwhile. Some weeks are astounding with 3-5 winners. He is definitely one of the best free golf tipsters.
I’ve been a member for six months, and I’ve come to the conclusion that the only way you’re getting near Dean’s recorded P/L is if you’re betting with small stakes and are unrestricted everywhere.
Everything is recorded at top price, which is generally fine for the match odds but not for outrights and correct scores.
To illustrate this, a couple of weeks ago a player was tipped at 500/1 e/w for 0.25 pts e/w at the British Open, which was a price offered by one bookmaker. The next highest price available was 300/1. In the end the player was eliminated at the QF stage, but had he won and you couldn’t get on at the one bookmaker who had 500/1 that would have been at least a 75 point difference between your profit and what he’s recorded.
He’s recommended the same player to win his quarter this week at 18/1 (with one firm, 14/1 the second highest priced) for a 1 point stake.
Dean generally goes between 1 and 3 points with his match betting, so a halfway serious punter might decide to stake £50 a point or higher. For a niche market like quarter betting, I’m not sure Hills would lay £50 at 18/1 and if they did and it won you’d probably be looking at the end of that account.
He gets three because he probably is profitable long-term on prices which people can realistically get on, but a lot of his profit seems to be based on big winners which are at odds which are unattainable for the average punter.
Ginger joe had a friendly group post him going paid with lots of tipsters.I never seen Joe himself tip any winning horses, so how could he possibly call himself a horse tipster. He leeched off profitable punters and people tipping winners and used them for social media attention.
Excellent tipster and really nice guy
IMO he is the best rugby tipster out there, finds excellent value plays both pre-match and in-play, provides thorough thought-through reasoning for bets and is always happy to respond to messages.
Highly recommend the service to all punters
I followed Rushy for 110 bets with a ROI of 6.79%. That’s actually above my target I set for all tipsters of 5%. Ultimately odds availability became an issue. Rushy often snaps up the top price in a market and the alternatives can be limited. Without access to some of the bookmakers I was just missing too many winners. As a punter that becomes frustrating and that’s the reason I decided it was time to move on. I wish Rushy every success and if you do have access to all of the bookmakers on the oddschecker grid then he’s a tipster worth following.
Vince was kind enough to give me free access to his Premium channel. That’s all about snapping up early value on different leagues across the world. I followed for a short time and reached 120 bets. I made a small loss of -0.99pts and a -1.84% ROI.
The main reason I stopped following wasn’t the results, history suggests they would improve, I just find that approach a real grind.. Betting on those random leagues that I’ve just go no interest in. Often tracking takes longer because the matches being tipped on are not on the feed that bettin.gs uses.
What I have been following is the Players Bet channel. Vince set this up as a trial and straight away the results were superb. I’ve surpassed 100 bets and made +6.89pts of profit with a 22.5% ROI. Vince specialises in German football and the results on there have been excellent. What I like the most is he only uses one bookmaker and at times that has allowed me to find even better odds than those he publishes. I will definitely continue to follow this service.
I’ve surpassed 250 bets now following Punters Corner. I should add at this juncture that he has kindly given me free access to his VIP Telegram channel so my results don’t include any subscription fees. I’m currently hitting the 5% target I have for all tipsters, with a 5.99% ROI after 271 bets.
Punters Corner primarily focuses on the shots market and uses the same bookmaker for every tip. This has it’s benefits but it also means you need to be quick as if the prices disappear the alternatives are limited. His subscriber base has increased at the start of the new season with around 100 members currently onboard. That has led to prices being a little more vulnerable.
I’ve been tracking odds availability as well lately. My sample size is small but to date I match the odds quoted 57% of time. Of those I miss, 27% of bets I’ve had to leave completely due to the price dropping too much.
Punters Corner does include previews with all of his selections which is great. Timing for me has been an issue as I take Thursdays off and PC often posts his early weekend tips, so that could account for the above availability stats to some degree. I’ll continue to follow all the time my ROI is over 5%. I would expect most followers to make more if they were quick to get the bets on.
Daryl Carter is clearly a very knowledgeable racing tipster but falls into the category of content creator having worked for GG.com and now the Betfair Blog for the past few years. They pay him to provide tips, every day. This brings with it some pressure for a tipster and also that lack of freedom to say “sorry folks, no value today”.
Daryl comes with a big reputation so I was keen to follow and over a decent sample size. I reached 250 bets (254) and my profit was just +0.14pts with a 0.17% ROI. That’s not a massive sample and there were times I missed a winner or two. Daryl likes to tip the day before races and that does create the problem that odds will be cut quickly sometimes.
I actually found odds availability wasn’t that much of an issue and at times I was able to get bigger prices elsewhere as Daryl is forced to use the odds of those that pay him for content. There’s a lot of hype around the winners on Twitter but the lack of results sheet or tracking is always the concern.
As with many of other content creator tipsters I’ve stopped following, Daryl sadly falls into that category now and it’s time to move on. I wish him every success and if he sets up a private group in future where he has that option to be more patient, then I would definitely be up for following again.
Kris Jones runs a very honest and profitable service. He kindly offered me free access to his Telegram channel and I followed for several months. I started following in the summer when the main leagues were on a break so that may well have effected my profit/loss.
That’s what you want to know right? Well I placed 123 bets, I had 60 winners (48.78%), made a small loss of -1.32pts and a -1.68% ROI. Those stats don’t include any subscription fees. Normally I would follow for a lot longer but odds availability became an issue for me and I was missing too many bets.
Kris likes to a lot of Bet Builders and doubles. That can take longer for a bet placing and tracking point of view. So that combination of a small loss, odds availability and bet tracking was ultimately why I decided to call it a day. Kris seems like a lovely bloke though and I wish him every success going forward. I’m sure most of his subscribers will return a decent profit across a larger sample.
Straight forward and honest tipster with a wealth of knowledge and highly profitable. I don’t know how he does it with the golf but I guess knowledge is power. Great insight, passion and knowledge of horse racing especially jumps,and even more so anything Cheltenham. has great connections and shares all of this in his discord group which is a great community.
One of the highest rated tipsters around today and it´s by no coincidence. He has a great eye for attacking markets where there is profit to be made, and has shown that constantly for years. In a game where the environment changes constantly, he has been very profitable for me and others. And that shows a deep understanding of price and outcome.
For anyone not familiar to his work, you can get to know it on various betting podcasts, where he explains his thought process and statistical edge, and reasonings for the selections.
However in his private group, there are long justifications for each selections, prices on different bookmakers and alternitive bets also, which is very helpful for those not in the UK. It´s basically tailored for everyone.
It also has to be mentioned that given he explains every bet so well, and gives reasoning it can be very helpful for every punter that wants to learn or dig in to the mind of and industry expert, what kind of work needs to be done to be profitable. He shows you the way and has always been helpful with questions in DM´s.
Every selections has a range of statistics behind it, that is explained in a way we can all understand and also learn from. So even if you are an experienced punter that just wants to add to your volume or a new one, this one can´t go wrong.

He’s an amazing, approachable and prompt which makes his service so much better than others’. When you go through the long term returns there’s no looking back.
Tom Collins is a great tipster. His knowledge of UK and USA horse racing is second to none. His free USA selections on Twitter were always well written out – even if the odds got smashed in every time he posted.
In fact, he is so good at US horse racing, that Sky Sports invite him on to their “Stateside Live” show when they have big events happening in America.
I have been following Kris since his first tipping days and I am now sure that I have a crystal clear opinion of him. I like the fact that most of his tips are dealing with not so fancy championships, like the Scottish or the Scandinavian ones. His transparent P/L status is updated right away and his tips are rather easy to follow. Furthermore, Kris is very friendly and helpful; he will reply in details to any question that comes up. Truly, one of his kind..
KJ Tips is the second paid tipster service I have used, and he certainly puts the work in. I will be honest and say that I sometimes do not know the leagues he selects at all, but his stats and depth of explanation means I feel confident with each bet placed. I am well in profit which is great after several months, so when there are short (and relatively rare) periods of indifferent form I feel comfortable following the tried and tested system KJ tips promote.
I’ve followed DS Snooker for years. And for years he’s been consistent at finding great value and a number of winners in a sport I know nothing about (apart from that ChasnDave song!).
He’s now gone fully premium but as his stats show, it’s worth the money!
I’ve reached the second milestone following Profit Tips. That being 250 bets. 262 to be precise at the time of updating this review. I actually updated this a week or so ago because my stats were so good, but I’ve slipped back since.
I think increasing my stakes from £5 per point to £10 per point may take a little while for the stats to even out. The ROI has dropped from 13% to 9.7% in recent weeks, still an excellent start (no need to change the review title).
What is a slightly concern is that odds availability is starting to fall. I think that’s partly because Profit Tips does appear to be using the likes of Paddy Power and William Hill more frequently of late. From my experience they are both soft bookmakers and just don’t take my bets.
That’s seen my odds availability following Profit Tips drop from 86% to 74% in just a few weeks which may also be a reason for the ROI falling. I should still add, both stats are excellent and I’m very excited to be following and hoping I can continue to benefit from this very reasonable and very profitable service.
Mark O’Haire contacted me and had some really kind things to say about Betting Kingdom which I’m still very grateful for. He also kindly gave me free access to his WLB Gold Channel so I could track my own results and offer a fair review. I’ve surpassed 100 bets, which is still a very small sample, but wanted to share my early findings.
I’ve made a profit. So that’s a bonus. But it’s a small one. 105 bets, +1.97pts and a ROI of 2.5%. That’s below the 5% mark I look for when following a tipster and obviously excludes any subscriptions fees that most of you will have to pay.
What about the service? Well tips are shared via Telegram. The volume is high. Mark O’Haire has posted more tips than any of the other tipsters in my current portfolio. In fact he posts twice as many as all but 1 of the other tipsters I follow. Again that’s over a small sample.
The tips are Bet Builders and often doubles. So it does take a little longer to place the bets. Whilst I track all my bets I don’t enter all the details as that would really be time consuming given the nature of the selections.
The tips are well presented with clear and concise information regarding the Date, League, selections, bookmakers, odds and stake. Given the majority of tips are stats based the staking plan doesn’t vary much with the majority of tips being 1.5pts. Mark always provides a comprehensive write up for his selections but given my limited time and the volume of tips I never read them personally (sorry).
The big problem for me has been William Hill. From my own experience they are now a terrible bookmaker. One day they accept my bets, the next they limit my stakes and the next they refuse the bet completely. Mark uses William Hill quite a lot and that causes me an issue and might have affected my profit/loss.
I’ve been tracking my odds availability and to date I manage to match the price on 55% of Mark’s tips which is below my 60% average. Again William Hill are likely to be a big reason for that and I understand a lot of punters may have full access, so bear that in mind.
I’m definitely going to continue to follow Mark and WLB Gold and will update this review when I reach 250 bets.
My sample size is still small but his results have been superb over that time and I wasn’t surprised he set up a paid service. The problem I encountered which I know a lot of other punters did was the odds availability. At times Tom would post a selection that was only available with one bookmaker. That bookie would slash the price instantly. I’ve never seen a bookmaker that scared of a tipster and that itself is a huge compliment to Tom. I’ve not been following the paid service so I cannot comment on this issue, or whether it still exists, hopefully by having fewer followers the problem has been resolved. I still follow Tom at every opportunity and he writes tips at the weekend for SBK on UK racing. I’ve reached the first milestone of 100 bets and boast a profit of +19.46pts and a ROI of 37.1%. Definitely a tipster to have in your portfolio.
Dean was one of the first tipsters to join Betting Kingdom when it was a tipster competition. He’s tipped on a number of sports down the years including football, handball, volleyball and snooker. As the years passed his results improved and eventually he focused purely on the snooker picks. I’m really pleased that Dean has able to set up his own premium service and I think his results speak for themselves. I made a superb start following Dean and my profit peaked at +40pts. Such is the nature of his approach I’ve recently endured a losing spell which at one stage included 21 losing bets from 22 selections. My approach to following tipsters is to target a ROI of 5%. If I pass the 250 bet mark and full below that level then I chose to stop following. Sadly that has been the case with DS Snooker. After such a great start I stopped with a profit of +8pts and a 3.7% ROI (doesn’t include subscriptions). I wish Dean every success and historical results suggest this is just a blip. But with my limited time I’m keen to explore more tipsters and so have decided to move on.
I started following Tennis Masterr on a recommendation and it was clear from the offset he was very popular. There was a good volume of tips via the Telegram channel but the problem for me was that 80% of tips used odds from Pinnacle Sports. I don’t have an account and haven’t explored the option of Bet brokers. But I would say if you don’t have access to Pinnacle Sports then this service won’t be for you.
I followed for several months but missed the majority of tips due to the above issue and also odds changed very quickly when other bookmakers were selected. Despite that from 97 bets I had a ROI of 12.2% which is superb and at the time of writing this there was only one tipster in my portfolio who’d I’d placed more bets with and had a higher ROI.
I’m not surprised that Tennis Masterr has set up a paid service and I wish him every success in the future. Tennis is a tough sport to tip on but a very enjoyable one to watch and hopefully his subscribers can win themselves some money off the bookies.
My sample sizes are still very small but to date Matt Vincenzi is top of my golf tipster list. I started with an aim of winning £150 from each tip. After reaching 100 bets with an ROI of over 100% I have doubled that goal. I realise that ROI is unachievable going forward but based on his historical results I’m confident that in the long run that increase will prove a good decision. It’s a little worrying Matt has set up a paid service via dubclub. This week the outright selections went out to subscribers on there first. I signed up to the one month free trial but I can’t back the match ups which are the main addition to that service it seems. My concern going forward is that by the time Matt shares his picks on GolfWRX the odds may have dropped. Time will tell. That said, Matt is one of the few tipsters you can offer get bigger prices than what he quotes. Because he tips Win Only you can exploit the bigger prices available on the exchange. If I was to recommend just one golf tipster, then right now, that would be Matt Vincenzi.
Anyone in the industry knows how good Ben Coley is. His results in recent seasons have been superb. I’ve not had as much luck myself but I’m glad to say I’m back in profit. I am currently 275 bets down with a profit of +10.54pts and a ROI of 7.2%. Well below what Coley would promote himself but still very impressive.
Odds availability is a problem. There have been occasions I’ve backed his 300/1 tips at 175/1. Should I be backing that at all? Probably not but what if that wins and I miss out on the payday? I’m usually quick to react to his tips as well but bookmakers slash the prices quickly. Also Coley isn’t worried about snapping up prices using soft bookies. Two of this tips this week use Paddy Power and Betfair to maximise returns.
I’m keeping the faith and stakes will remain the same until at least 500 bets which should take me towards the end of the year. There are very few tipsters that can match Coley in recent seasons and history suggests his fortunes and my own, will change soon.
I’ve known SPTips for a good number of years now, perhaps even as many as 8, when he first signed up to be part of the Betting Kingdom tipster competition. It was clear from the start that he knew how to beat the bookmakers and he made a consistent profit on there for a sustained period of time.
Bigger things always lay ahead for SPTips and a premium service was inevitable. I think Covid played a part in ruining that but he came back to offer free tips for the 2022-23 season and produced excellent results with a 13.7% ROI. To do that focusing mainly on the Premier League is superb.
He also uses the leading bookmaker for the majority of his selections so it is imperative you have account with the green and yellow bookmaker from England. They did once pounce on his tips a while back but I think the switch to Telegram solved that issue so it shouldn’t be a problem going forward.
SPTips kindly gave me access to his premium service and I’ve also been following his European tips which he posts for free. At the 100 bet mark my profit was +10.82pts with a 20.21% ROI. Fantastic stats and backs up my review title.
I’ve made a great start following Matt Brocklebank with some big priced winners already. 25/1 was the biggest price and their have been a few more at double figure odds. He posts the day before meetings which at first was a worry but the odds availability to date has been really good.
Not much else to say right now other than so far he’s been one of my most profitable racing tipsters. I will definitely continue to follow his Value Bets selections and hopefully they’ll continue to return a decent profit. Thanks Matt.
I won a lot of money following Nellberg down the years. He first signed up to the Betting Kingdom tipster competition in 2016 and it was soon clear he knew exactly what he was doing.
Nellberg likes to find value in the smaller markets such as Top Batsman, Most Sixes, Man of the Match, Bowler head to heads, you get the idea. His previews are always insightful and come with key stats to help you understand why he chose that selection.
His results at Betting Kingdom were always excellent with a 15.73% ROI after 1333 tips. I know since the tipster competition disappeared his tipping has been a bit sporadic but he’s got a loyal following which will always keep supporting his picks.
From a personal point of view my bookmaker limitations these days make betting on cricket tricky. For a tipster like Nellberg I appreciate at times he may need to use the likes of Paddy Power, Ladbrokes or Coral to find the value, and without access to those accounts that’s the reason I stopped following. Something to bear in mind.
I’ve reached 100 bets again following RobTheBookiesFC. I was originally following his free service but stopped when he launched the VIP. But he’s kindly given me free access for October. That came off the back off a small loss for his subscribers in September.
They appear to be remaining loyal though with 130+ currently signed up to the channel. To ate I’ve placed 101 bets, had 45 winners (44.55% Win Rate) and a +5.2pts profit. That’s a 5.94% ROI. So above my target of 5%, although those stats don’t include any subscription fees.
The tips focus on player props such as shots, fouls and passes with the odd team prop selection thrown in. Stakes are a little bit more aggressive than some of the other football tipsters I follow, with lots of 2 & 2.5pt stakes, but you can always adjust your own staking plan accordingly. I half my stakes currently whilst I build up my profit following Rob.
I’m hoping October will be profitable and if I reach 250 bets I’ll be back to update this review. My biggest dilemma following Rob is my lack of access to Paddy Power & Betfair. Terrible bookmakers from my experience but Rob does use them for quite a lot of tips, so just bear that in mind if you’d don’t have PP or Betfair access.
I was recommended to follow Andy Holding by a fellow punter and advised his oddschecker tips would land me a profit. It quickly became clear that might not be the case. Odds availability was an instant problem so it suggested that other punters were piling in. I’m not quite sure why as 7 months into the year and Andy Holding is currently showing a small loss at Oddschecker. Not great.
My experience was short lived, placing only 30 bets and landing just 2 winners. I quickly lost £100 and decided to stop. It was a good decision as he was in profit at the time. I’ve had a look at the Speed Figures website and opened a free account to view the results but I can’t find any stats.
Perhaps I’m just looking in the wrong direction. Or I’ve missed the idea of the service? Perhaps you are just paying for the speed figures which you then use for your own selections? I don’t know, it’s not clear in my opinion and if I’m saying that, I’m sure others have had the same experience.
Andy has a big reputation in the industry but my advice would be avoid his free oddschecker tips.
I’ve been blocked on Twitter by GBT. I first came across Mike and his service when he signed up to the Betting Kingdom Tipster Competition many years ago. I was super excited to have a premium golf tipster on the site. But his results were very poor, albeit across a small sample size.
I took a closer look at his website. The results were incredible. A ROI of over 100% across 3-4 years of tipping. Now if you have any understanding of how gambling works you’ll know that’s just not possible. I took a delve into the results and there was some suspicious findings.
Firstly each way bets were being settled incorrectly and dead heat rules weren’t being accounted for. You could argue this is a genuine mistake but if you’ve been tipping on golf for 4 or 5 years and your selection finishes T8 with 7 other dudes, you know you’re not getting paid out in full.
Then there were selections showing profit with the phrase CASH OUT. These were tips that GBT had claimed he’d advised subscribers to cash out during the tournament that had then failed to place or win. But checking the Twitter feed their was no evidence of this.
A few other things bother me. The about page. Apparently this service has a team of golf professionals, inside the ropes, even at Majors. So they’re are charging £20 a month and sending the team all around the World with special access? Hmmm. Pretty cool if it’s true. I’ll let you decide.
Finally the reviews page. It’s been changed now but there were 100s of reviews at one stage. Every single one of them was a 5 star review.
I have had chats with Mike in the past and in his defence he did alter some of the results, but not the Each Way Dead Heat mistakes, so the stats displayed on his site and here at Betting Kingdom are likely to be incorrect. The worrying thing is that if you type “Golf Betting Tipster” into google, this service comes up first, so they might still be making money.
I started following DSJ Bets after a glowing recommendation. Upon checking his stats at bettin.gs I was very impressed. A 13% ROI for his first season of tipping on football is superb. After about a week or so I decided to stop following and I do have this feeling I may regret that. I’m also well aware that is a ridiculously short time to follow a tipster.
But it wasn’t to do with the results, it was purely his approach doesn’t really suit my betting habits. Tips were posted individually and spread across the day which means as a follower you need access to place bets at all times. I find it easier when tipsters group their selections and post them all in one go.
There was also a scenario when a tip was posted just after kick off. The selection was available in-play but the lack of warning is again a reason why this service doesn’t suit me, but might be great for other punters.
Results have been excellent to date and with a very small following the likelihood is that odds availability won’t be an issue. He uses the two main bookmakers in the UK as well which is ideal for most punters. An awful lot to like here, but sometimes even the best tipsters might not be right for you as an individual.
Andy Holding had been recommended to me by another punters I started following his tips on oddschecker. Results were really poor so I quickly stopped, but noticed on the App Steve Ryder was boasting some impressive numbers, so I followed him instead.
I stuck it out for a fair while and go up the ghost after 250 bets with a ROI of -3.5%. I came to the conclusion that I wasn’t going to make a profit, even though Oddschecker were showing good returns. There appeared to be a reason for this. Oddschecker were posting these selections before 9am and taking the top price. If the tip one with a higher SP they settled the bet using Best Odds Guaranteed. But this is wrong because most bookies don’t off BOG before 9am, so you would only have got the original price.
The other problem was that there were occasions the prices displayed in Steve Ryders previews were just not available, even minutes after the posts were tipped. That’s not his fault, it’s oddschecker. This is a site that’s primary function is to check the best price, yet they were not doing this for their tipsters. So again if they bet won it was being settled at a higher price than what was available to me the punter. This would go someone to explain why Steve Ryder was boasting a decent profit yet I didn’t break even.
In Steve’s defence, and I spoke to him a few times, he was aware of these issues and was looking to address them. It’s also not his fault. But ultimately he’s another of the paid content creators who probably be far more selective if it wasn’t for the stipulations of his employers. If Steve Ryder ever had his own service I’d follow, but all the time he’s with oddschecker it’s not for me.
I want to thank Neil & Duncan for their kind off of allowing me access to their tips for free. I didn’t follow for a big enough sample to offer a far reflection of their service so I don’t want to come across as too judgemental.
During the period I followed I placed 366 bets, had a loss of -27.98pts and a ROI of -24.83%. Their overall ROI for the season when I stopped following was still 13%.
To be honest I was keen to keep following but then came the Open de Espana when they took stand out prices from a soft bookmaker that just weren’t available elsewhere. That’s disappointing in my opinion and shows a lack of understanding of their subscribers and the problems we may encounter with limitations.
I just couldn’t back a tip that had been posted at a price of 50/1 at odds of 33/1. I hope they make me regret my decision and land some big winners before the year is out. But even if they do, it might be at inflated odds, that punters like myself just cannot access.
I started following Statman having seen his impressive statistics on Twitter. But when I was backing his selections he suddenly stopped tracking results. Pretty much all the time I was following his picks, his detailed spreadsheet was left and not updated. Ultimately that was the reason I decided to stop following so soon. He’s clearly a very good tipster but I think I just signed up at the wrong time and ended with a -4% ROI after 100 bets. That was helped by 10/1 winner on my last day following. Hopefully he finds the time to get spreadsheet back up to date and he’s definitely one to consider.
I’ve been betting on golf for 25 years and never once have I followed Steve Rawling’s selections. I think that says a lot. That’s not to make judgement on his ability to find value, but more an insight on his approach. He’s excellent at what he does, his previews and in-play blogs offer great detail on the event and provide punters with a wealth of information to help them pick a winner.
But the problem lies that Steve has chosen to never display his profit/loss. Without that it’s very difficult to follow his selections over the vast list of alternative golf tipsters promoting big profits and ROI.
I followed briefly and decided to stop as I my portfolio included too many golf tipsters. Steve has landed some big winners this season and I’m sure his returns are healthy, but who’s to say what past seasons have returned? The fact there is no staking plan either left me a little bewildered. Selections varied in price and I was left guessing as to how much I should be investing. The other major issue was that the odds available when I placed my bets were always lower than what Steve quoted.
I think the likelihood is if you followed Steve you’d probably do well, but without having that information to hand, it’s difficult to get started and give him preference other the tipsters who do track their results and do have a staking plan.
I’ve got a lot of love for Tennis Pilot (James & Nicholas). They were a real feature of the tipster competition some 7 or 8 years ago and their results on here were sensational. That carried through to the early years in their service but I think since post covid there does appear to have been a drop off. I’m not sure why that is but at the time of writing this review their ROI for the past 12 months is -3.5%. That’s disappointing.
I decided to start following after I listened to their interview on the Smart Betting Club Podcast and was really impressed with how James spoke. I was excited to get stuck in but I didn’t get that same level of enthusiasm and expertise that was evident in the podcast, when backing the selections.
I should add I only followed them for a short period and in the end decided to stop at 88 bets as I was losing quite a bit. I finished with a ROI of -29% which obviously isn’t the norm based on their results in the past 12 months, but still disappointing.
Odds availability was an issue and I often found myself taking lower odds than the top price posted. The markets felt very repetitive with Total Games and Tie Breaks a key feature. I’m not sure if James and Nicholas have lost their love for the service or it’s just a rocky spell. But this is one I would pass on personally after my recent experience. I’d like to wish them every success going forward though.
