RatingPass

We don’t know who this mysterious fellow The Judge is, but we are told that he has been betting on greyhounds over the last 17 years. He decided to start a tips service because he has had many of his bookmaker accounts closed due to the profits he has made over the years.

Going by the results recorded by Bet Fan since September 2015 he has delivered consistent profits, as you can see in the long-term performance chart below.

Stakes have been advised between 1 and 5 points and a 200 point starting bank was recommended. There have been several bets sent out most days, usually in the afternoon once markets have been priced up.

Out of interest, we checked to see how the selections would have performed using flat 1 point stakes and found that we would have made a profit of 22.79 points at an ROI of 12.32%.

There may be an issue with bookies closing/limiting accounts, but this will happen whatever sport you are profiting from so you may as well take advantage while you can. There is the option of using exchanges, but liquidity is often poor for greyhound races until minutes before the off and by that time the value may have been diminished.

Pricing

Membership to the service costs £48.00 per month or £96.00 per quarter, which is quite high in comparison to some of the other services that we have passed, however the quarterly option is better value working out at £32 per month.


Summary

It was a shaky start to the review, but The Judge made a great comeback in the following months and managed to deliver a respectable profit of just under 80 points overall and a 40% increase to the bank.

The service has been easy to follow and it’s been interesting to try out betting on a different sport from the usual horse racing/football. Greyhound betting will also suit those who work during the day, as bets are usually sent out late afternoon for the evening races and most races are now televised too.

It has turned out to be an excellent trial and the service will be confidently added to our approved list.


The Judge Update Two

7th December 2016

We’re back with the second update to our review of The Judge greyhound betting service and after a turbulent time in the first month, we are now back in profit.

This month we made a profit of 43.7 points with an ROI of 20%, which gives us an overall profit of 13.46 points.

We've been able to match the advised odds 100% of the time this month and overall we have achieved a slightly higher profit than the official results.

We'll report back next month with our next update.


The Judge Update One

8th November 2016

It’s been a dramatic start to our review of greyhound tips service The Judge, with our bank plummeting by over 100 points before making a swift recovery. The bank now stands at 169.76 points, so a loss of 30.24 points.

We have received 81 bets so far with 23 returning a profit, which represents a strike rate of 28.4%. The average odds of the tips so far are 3.75, so the service would need a 26.7% strike rate to break even at those odds.

We haven’t had any trouble getting the required odds, but we did find that the bookies are slow to price up their markets, so the timing on the emails depend on when the odds are available.

We have another two months left of our trial yet and with the variance that we have experienced so far, who knows what could happen next.

We will report back next month with our next update.


The Judge Introduction

4th October 2016

The Judge is a Greyhound Racing tipping service from the Bet Kudos platform that concentrates on finding value bets for the stronger races holding big prizes.

The service launched in September 2015 and has made a profit of 780.12 points to date, with 572.61 points profit made in 2016 alone. This works out at an average profit of 63.6 points per month this year so far. All results are posted to the proofing area of the website.

The Judge has been involved in the Greyhound Racing world since the age of 13 when he was a runner at the track putting bets on for people. He became involved in betting professionally 17 years ago and hasn’t looked back since.

Yes, mistakes were made along the way, the biggest of them all was not gambling to win for the long term. However a change of mindset in the early years made me look at the bigger picture and how I could make a super career from the sport.

The Judge

Tips are emailed out daily and also uploaded to the member’s area on the website. A bank of 200 points is advised and stakes are set between 1-5 points.

Membership costs £48.00 per month or £96.00 per quarter (which works out at £32 per month).

We’ll be trialling the service over the next three months and will report back each month with an update of our results.

  1. I have found him very consistent unlike most other tipsters no long losing runs and plenty of action.
    and up 600 points this year which is 18k for me at my stakes only problem is i am on my 2nd friends betting account.

    1. Great, thanks for the feedback Dave. I believe blacktype bet guarantee not to limit accounts as long you don’t arb them and they have greyhound markets on there too.
