Neutral ReviewAll in all a very disappointing trial throughout it has to be said.

I really wanted to see the solid growth that had taken place prior to my trial continue but it wasn’t to be, with a gradual erosion of profits taking place over the 10 week ending in a -20.11 points loss after including the outstanding results of last week.

Here are the final figures:

Trial Period: 10 weeks
Bets = 220
Wins = 61
Losses = 159
Longest Winning Run = 4
Longest Losing Run = 13
Overall Trial winning Strike Rate = 27.72%
Overall Trial Profit/Loss = -20.11

Service Author: James Pacheco
Bet Type: All are ‘Back-to-Win’ bets that range from 0.25 – 2 points with the occasional double bet.
Customer Service:  All emails were answered within 24-36 hours from customer service.
Delivery of Service: Delivery of the service is very good with emails arriving with advised bets the day before the event takes place. All bets come with full analysis with the rational behind why they are advised. 

Conclusion:
The service went live on 12th September 2015 so almost 10 months in existence. In that time it has reached a high of +46.26 points on April 19th and reached a new low of +16.13 points on 26th June, and now back to +17.57 as of 1st July.

Taking the current profits as they stand now of +17.57 and we are looking at an average +1.75 points profit per month which begs the question; is it really worth the effort? Especially taking into consideration the £24.99 monthly subs.

The Verdict:
Due to the nature and style of the service in terms of stakes and average price of advised bets, its clear this 20 point loss is going to take a while to claw back. Having said that, James is clearly someone who takes his sports betting very seriously and I’m sure he is doing his utmost to get this service back on track and make it worthwhile for subscribers to continue.

Evidently on the basis of the trial this would go into the ‘Fail’ camp. However once I fail a service I have no plans to revisit it in the future, whereas I would really like to look at this again in 3 months to see how its performing, and to see whether the hard work put in by James has turned things around.

If this drawdown continues then It will be filed as ‘Failed’, and if it can reach and surpass the previous profit highs then it could be a good service for compounding as it will have proven its resilience to turn things around.

Trial Verdict: Neutral

Week 1 Results Review

A pretty solid first week for the service with a profit of +1.76.
Please remember this is a service that works generally at the lower-price end of the market, so it will have a high strike rate and short losing runs with only two losing weeks reported in the last 13 weeks.
Therefore we are not going to getting massive fluctuations from profit to loss. I can already see early on this may well appeal to those who want to gradually build up their betting bank in solid fashion, with very few nerve-jangling losing runs. It may be ideal to run alongside a good compounding plan.

Week 4 Results Review
A slight loss for the service this week. I am buoyed by the fact that even during a very poor run by their own admission we are only losing relatively small amounts. Yes they do stake small, but a few more of the bigger priced wins can turn this around like this weeks 11.0 winner on Yusuf Pathan to be Top Batsman. Here’s hoping anyway…

Another worrying loss for the service last week and James has already commented on his huge disappointment with results over recent weeks and is working on hard to get back on track. Lets see how the second half of the trial performs as due to the amount of work James puts into his research I’m confident of a turnaround.

Again an improved strike rate at the end of Week 7 but still another slight loss on the week and overall.
We do need some beefy wins over the next 3 weeks for this to turn around, so here’s hoping for a good run as I have seen James is capable of.
