Sgt Short Introduces Oddsonuwin
This is a service by John Wilson which comes in the form of a PDF containing our instructions and then daily selections delivered by email. It looks to win money on the outcome of horse races, but uses unconventional means to find the selections. The title is normally accompanied by the tagline “Investing In Facts Not Hunches.”
It seems that these facts refer to the track rather than the horses. He points out that there are 119 courses in UK and Ireland, each with good and bad points for particular types of race in various conditions, giving us many profit opportunities. “All selections are highlighted through fact using the highest probability of success.”
John says that using these methods he has made an average 920 points profit per year over the last 6 years. There are no big risks involved, each bet is backing or laying the favourite at short odds. To use this system you will require a Betfair (or other exchange) account, and a recommended bank of 100 points. We will also be using Oddschecker, an online betting site.
There are detailed instructions on how to place your bet. In order to follow the system rules exactly you would either have to load up a bot or two, or be sitting in front of your computer at the off to make the appropriate bet. If you wanted to place your bets in advance you would have to estimate from Oddschecker which horse would be the favourite and which band it’s starting odds would fall into. The bands we will be using are:
- Evens – 2/1 (2.00 to 3.00 decimal)
- 2/1 and lower (0.01 to 3.00 decimal)
- Below Evens (0.01 to 1.99 decimal)
The daily email will tell us to either BACK or LAY the favourite if it falls into the correct odds band in the selected race. When we are backing, it will be for 1 point per selection. When we are laying, it will be for 1 point liability if the odds are below evens, (in this case if the horse wins we will lose 1 point) or 1 point stake if the odds are above evens (in this case we will lose between 1 and 2 points if the horse wins).
The list is likely to contain 3-14 selections, maybe up to 20 on very busy days, but it is likely that only about 50% of them will meet the odds criteria.
The cost of the service is £30.57 + VAT (if applicable) per month, and it will be restricted to 200 members. It is purchased via Clickbank, so you have the normal 60 day money-back guarantee.
Thank you for your time and I hope you enjoy the review.
