APS Basketball Tips is a new sports betting tipster service which is offered under the Betting Gods stable of tipsters. It is supposedly backed by a team which is headed up by a tipster known only as Arvinder.
What does the product offer?
If I were to ask you which mainstream sports are under represented by tipsters in the UK I am sure that there would be a clamour to establish them. Betting in the UK is dominated by horse racing and football, whilst most people perhaps have a tipster covering tennis or golf. But where do you go from here if you are trying to build a portfolio? Given that it is the second most popular sport in the world (after football), you could be easily forgiven for missing basketball.
Enter APS Basketball Tips. A new tipster service from the Betting Gods team which they say offers subscribers a chance to get on board with a “professional basketball betting tipster”. As always, the marketing from Betting Gods is straight to the point and avoids falling into the trap of over promising on their service. A glance over the results suggests that APS Basketball Tips is a very strong product and given the niche, I am actually very excited to review this service.
The setup of APS Basketball Tips is somewhat different to most tipsters that perhaps you are used to dealing with. Instead of horse racing or football where you are receiving selections every day, with APS Basketball Tips there are some very clear gaps where games aren’t available. This also means that on game days there can be a varied number of tips. Whenever they are available however, they are sent out via the Betting Gods team as well as being uploaded to a member’s area.
I have to hold my hands up and say that I don’t know a lot about the types of bets that you place with basketball. Looking at the bets that Arvinder advises however, there is a huge number of types and these are all exploited in order to find bets. Unfortunately, the odds that you are advised to bet at aren’t the highest with the majority being less than 2.0 however this isn’t the be all and end all with APS Basketball Tips.
This only really leaves the numbers side of things to consider. The staking plan that is in place is a sensible affair and involves betting between 1 and 3 points on a given bet. This has worked out pretty well so far with the betting bank never really being exposed to any unnecessary risk. The strike rate is the real stand out here with an average strike rate of 51.24% being maintained since July this year. This is a phenomenal result and there is no sign that APS Basketball Tips will lose this edge either.
How does the product work?
Arvinder has supposedly been betting on basketball as a “pro punter” for over two decades and looking at the results, I can believe that. Whilst this is clearly a big part of the selection process for APS Basketball Tips, unfortunately, this is also about all that we are told in terms of what it entails. Historically however, the Betting Gods team have been very good with their tipsters and only tend to bring on genuine cases.
On the few examples that I have seen where things haven’t quite worked out, they have been quickly removed from the roster. This tells me that any tipster that tries to blag their way into the APS Basketball Tips stable is going to quickly find themselves ousted. As a result of this, whilst I would have liked to have known more about what the selection process involves, I don’t see it as a deal breaker that we aren’t given that information.
What is the initial investment?
Given the results that have been attained by APS Basketball Tips to date you could be forgiven for thinking that it is going to be expensive. This simply isn’t the case though. In fact, I would be inclined to say that this is one of the best value tipster services that I have looked at before. A monthly subscription will set you back just £15 whilst a quarterly subscription isn’t much more at just £40. Alternatively, you can sign up to APS Basketball Tips for the whole year for a one time cost of £100. All of these options come with a 10 day trial which will cost you just £1. There is also a full 30 day money back guarantee in place for the service.
What is the rate of return?
Since it launched APS Basketball Tips has made an overall profit of £840.40 to £10 stakes. This represents an 84 point profit in a relatively small space of time which I think is a very strong result, especially since APS Basketball Tips costs so little. This all equates to an ROI of 18.15%. Whilst this doesn’t necessarily sound as strong as some tipster services, I still believe this to be a very solid result.
It is not very often that something new comes to the world of tipping or even that somebody tries something a little bit different. APS Basketball Tips delivers on both of these fronts and it delivers in spades as far as I am concerned. Truth be told, I feel like a lot of tipsters struggle to make an impact because they are involved in not just a competitive market, but within a competitive niche. I have reviewed hundreds if not thousands of products and a large number of these have been some kind of horse racing or football tipster service or betting system.
This makes it difficult for those who are looking to build a genuine portfolio to diversify their betting but Arvinder is onto something with basketball. As I have mentioned, it is the second biggest sport in the world and as such, there is enough demand for bets, but you are also flying low on the proverbial radar which I believe should keep you from encountering too many problems with the bookies (prices shortening, accounts being banned etc).
Combine this with the fact that APS Basketball Tips is genuinely one of the best value or money products that I have seen for some time and it is a complete package as far as I am concerned. APS Basketball Tips is not just profitable, but it is affordable. More than that however it is consistent. This is arguably the most important thing for any tipster and whilst it is still technically early doors, I see no real reason why APS Basketball Tips can’t continue this form.
With all of this in mind, I would be inclined to give APS Basketball Tips some serious thought. Not just as a unique and different tipster service. I would consider it a serious alternative to some of the more traditional tipsters on the market and to top it off, it is a bargain in its current form.
