The Betting Mastermind Review: Month Two Update

football in corner of pitch

The Betting Mastermind is a subscription service offering daily selections for several football betting strategies on Betfair.

At the time of writing, there are five football systems and they show a combined profit of more than 1,880 points since 2018. In 2022 so far, they are up to 370 points profit overall.

The strategies currently included with the service are Back the Draw, Lay the Draw, Back the Home Win, Back the Away Win and Back Over 0.5 First Half Goals.

Bets are to be placed on a betting exchange such as Betfair or Smarkets, so there's no worry about having stakes limited at regular bookmakers. 

Here is a breakdown of the profit the service has recorded for each system in 2022 to date:

  • Back the Draw = 127 points
  • Lay the Draw = 115 points
  • Back the Home Win = 12 points
  • Back the Away Win = 56 points
  • Back Over 0.5 First Half Goals = 60 points

These results include a deduction of 2% Betfair commission.

The bets for each system are sent out by email each morning and you just need to back them at whatever odds are available at the time. There aren't any advised odds given with selections.

There is a two week £1 trial available for the service, so you can give it a test run before parting with any hard-earned cash.

We will be recording results for at least a month to start with and will post our results after that. We are always interested in services that use Betfair rather than bookmakers, so hopefully this one works out.

Month One Update

It was an interesting but very busy month testing The Betting Mastermind service, with 383 bets across the five systems in total. Overall, we finished the month with 4.86 points profit.

All bets were placed on Betfair, but it still took at least 30-40 minutes, sometimes more, on a busy Saturday morning. 

Noting results down would take another 30 minutes later in the day, so needed to spend a lot more time on this service than we would on a normal tipping service.

Three out of the five systems finished with a profit, with Home Win performing the best.

Here is a breakdown of results:

  • Back the Draw = -3.93 points
  • Lay the Draw = -22.44 points
  • Back the Home Win = 24.08 points
  • Back the Away Win = 6.74 points
  • Back Over 0.5 First Half Goals = 0.41 points
  • Total = 4.86 points

We took a short break at this stage of our review as the service was coming up with a solution to automate selections.

Month Two Update

We were now able to automate The Betting Mastermind systems so we recommenced our review. A simple setup on BF Bot Manager and we were ready to go.

It turned out to be a cracking month with 43.15 points profit using level 1 point stakes. Added to the profit gained in the first month of our review, that worked out as a total of 48.01 points profit.

Here is a breakdown of results for the month:

  • Back the Draw = 30.59 points
  • Lay the Draw = -3.07 points
  • Back the Home Win = -7.23 points
  • Back the Away Win = 20.99 points
  • Back Over 0.5 First Half Goals = 1.87 points
  • Total = 43.15 points

It was a great start to our automated results for The Betting Mastermind and we hoped to see more of the same in the coming months.

  1. Hi,
    Is something wrong with one of the sites you put on the website.
    Betting Mastermind. I clicked on the £1 trial link and paid via Pay Pal. Didn’t hear nothing from them so sent them a message. Just noticed that they returned my £1 without giving any explanation.

    • Hi Chris, The trial was supposed to be free but they had trouble setting it up, so they were charging £1 and refunding it instead. I heard this morning that it will now be £1 for future sign-ups though so there’s no confusion.
