BeatTheLine Review: Back To Lay Horse Trading Service

BeatTheLine Review

BeatTheLine is a Back to Lay horse trading service that claims to have achieved a 10.9% average daily ROI for 2021.

The idea is to back the selections in the morning and then lay them off at a betting exchange later in the day to lock in a profit, no matter what the outcome of the race is.

The results show that the service has a high strike rate with 78.25% of their selections have shortened in price.

After signing up to the service, you are supplied with a manual which goes into more detail on how the system works and advice on how the staking works. There is also a template spreadsheet to use for keeping track of your results.

Selections are sent out via a WhatsApp group each morning between 8.00 and 9.30am by Chris, who runs the service. It's important to be available at this time to get the initial bets placed.

After that, further information is sent out throughout the day with advice from Chris on when he is exiting his trades, but he says that some people prefer to trade out earlier or later.

There is a 30 day free trial available for the service which would give you plenty of time to get to grips with the service.

Read on to see our results from following the service, including straight-backing results and the percentage of bets that shortened in odds throughout the day.

Review Summary

BeatTheLine was an interesting service to review but also a bit tricky, as you have to be around every morning to put bets on ASAP, as well as being available prior to each race.

There were generally around 10 bets per day, so you do need to be on the ball to make sure you don't forget to trade out from one of the races.

We recorded 149 bets in less than a month and noted that the odds had shortened pre-race in 57.7% of the selections, based on the available odds that we had found in the morning.

Often the advised odds that had been quoted were quickly cut by the bookmakers after the selections were posted, so you would have to be quick in putting the bets on. It does show that Chris is definitely on to something here!

Straight betting on the selections would have given a very nice 27.11 points profit at the available odds at an ROI of 18.2%. It shows that while we weren't always able to get the advised odds, we were still able to make a good profit.

We were not able to trade the selections due to time issues and the fact that many of our main bookmaker accounts have had stakes limited. However, in our results we have shown the percentage difference in odds for each bet between the time of backing and just before the race.

Please note that our results do not include BOG (Best Odds Guaranteed). When trading the selections, betting at BOG bookies is a huge advantage, as if the odds do drift throughout the day you will be in a much better position. 

Chris, who runs the service, is always available on WhatsApp to answer any questions. He posts his trading moves throughout the day so you can learn from him about when the exit trades and when it may be worth taking a trade in-play.

Below are his trading results for 2021, so you can get an idea of the potential profit. Although we would say that it would most likely work out slightly lower than this due to some difficulty getting the advised odds.

BeatTheLine Tips Review - 2021

We are happy to recommend the BeatTheLine service, but we have to say that it wouldn't suit everyone due to having to available throughout the day to trade out of bets. 

Straight backing the selections is an option that could work out well if you are not around to trade. Whatever option you choose, just be sure to try and use as many different bookmakers as possible to try and stay under their radar!
