Football Mania Update One

12th September 2017

It's been a month since we started our Football Mania review and we are back with the first update of our results. We have received 65 selections so far and following the advised stakes we have made a profit of 12.34 points at an ROI of 6.3% at the available odds.

The service did climb up to a profit of over 45 points after a run of 7 winning bets in a row at the beginning of the month and shortly after, hitting two winners on the bounce at odds over 6.0. Unfortunately following this, the service hit a bad run with just 6 out of 30 bets returning a profit, which took back a big chunk of the profit we had accumulated.

Out of interest we have also been recording the results for level 1 point stakes so that we can get a better picture of how well the service is performing. This has shown a steady growth this month with a profit of 3.76 points at an ROI 5.8%.

Football Mania Introduction

14th August 2017

Football Mania is a tips service run by Jon Roberts on the Betfan platform that has been running for three football seasons starting from 2014-2015. The service has delivered a profit in each of the seasons and has banked a total of 564.73 points to date.

As with all Betfan services, all of the results are available to view on the website but unfortunately we cannot see any further stats such as strike rate or ROI.

Last three seasons results
  • 2014-15 season: +135.22 points
  • 2015-16 season: +253.60 points
  • 2016-17 season: +163.22 points

The tips mainly cover the European leagues and use a range of markets including match odds, over/under goals and both teams to score. The majority of the bets are singles but there is the occasional accumulator thrown in to the mix.

Emails are sent out daily with either the betting advice for the day or a note to say there aren't any bets. Betfan also have an app for android or apple devices where you can receive live notifications when new tips are released.

The service recommends using a 200 point bank and stakes are advised between 1 and 5 points. For our review we will record results for both the advised stakes and a level staking plan.

Membership to Football Mania currently costs £4.97 + VAT for the first 28 days followed by either monthly payments of £47 + VAT or £187 + VAT for the entire 2017/2018 season.

We will be following the service over the next three months and will post a monthly update of our results.
