Welcome to our 3 Picks review, tips service that sends out a trixie bet each day covering various markets including tennis, football and horse racing.
The 3 Picks service went on a break at the end of December 2017 and unfortunately hasn't returned yet. During our review we were able to track a month's worth of results and made a profit of 23.71 points.
We have awarded the service with a neutral rating but we hope to see it back up and running in the future so that we can resume our review.
3 Picks Review: Update One
28th December 2017
It's been a great start to our 3 Picks review with a profit of 23.71 points at an ROI of 22% in the first month at the available odds. We have even managed to beat the results recorded to the advised prices by 4 points, which rarely happens.
We have recorded 27 trixie bets so far and 16 of them returned a profit which works out as a healthy strike rate of 59.3%.
The highlight of the month was one of the trixie bets having 3 out of 3 winning legs, bringing in a huge profit of 32.47 points. This was actually the only winning trixie of the month, but we only need 2 legs to win to make a profit.
Key Stats - Update One
|Advised Odds||Available Odds|
|Number of Bets||27||27|
|Total Stakes (pts)||108.00||108.00|
|Profit/Loss (£10 stakes)||£197.10||£237.10|
|Bank (200pt starting)||219.71||223.71|
Our results don't include the Best Odds Guaranteed concession, but we recommend using bookies that offer this if possible. BOG would have boosted profits this month by approximately 40-50%.

3 Picks Review: Introduction
19th November 2017
Today we are commencing a new review of a mixed sports betting service called 3 Picks, after recently being contacted by the founder Paul. The 3 Picks team is made up with a group of four tipsters who each specialise in different sports and Paul who takes care of the management side of things.
The team work together to come up with the best betting selections and combine them together as a trixie bet each day. A trixie is where you have four bets on three selections - three doubles and one treble - so you need at least two of the three selections to win to make a profit.
The results since launching the service in August show a profit of 45.95 points from 95 bets which we calculated as an ROI of 12.1% based on 4 points staked on each trixie.
Membership to the service costs £1.50 for the first 7 days and then £34.95 per month thereafter.
So who are these tipsters and what sports do they cover?
Whilst writing our introduction to the service, we noticed that some of the facts and figures on the website our outdated, but the main results page is updated daily.
We like the fact that there is only one bet per day - you might recall our review of Hat Trick Hero which followed a similar principle, sending out just one treble per day.
We have set up a 200 point starting bank as recommended and will be staking 4 points per trixie.
Let's hope 3 Picks can attain similar results or better than those reported so far. We'll be back soon with an update.
