Bet Inspector is a new service which is operated by Daniel Belfour and James Wright. The pair claim to be able to generate a very large amount of profit through horse racing with apparently very little effort.
What does the product offer?
Every now and then a product comes along that has such a unique marketing angle that I know that at the very least I am going to be entertained. Bet Inspector is one of the latest examples of this and as such, I am quite excited to have a look at it. I do want to preface this entire review however by saying that whilst the marketing may be entertaining, this is in no way a reflection on the overall product.
There is quite a lot to be addressed with Bet Inspector if I am honest. So much so that this is the third time I have tried to start this article. Daniel Belfour and James Wright headline the sales material by saying the following:
“We Are The Bet Inspectors a Team of Horse Racing “Private Investigators and We’re Here to Dig Up the Industry’s Dirty Secrets”
This is one hell of a claim. There is clear suggestion that the entire horse racing industry as we know it is abound with corruption, and it is only by following Bet Inspector that you can fight this and really start to make a profit. I will get to this in more detail a little later, but I don’t believe that much more needs to be said. So, lets delve into Bet Inspector and see whether it has truly uncovered something or not.
So what do you actually get with Bet Inspector? I feel that this is important to address as there are a number of elements in the marketing material that joking aside, do genuinely make Daniel Belfour and James Wright’s service lean towards the fantastical. Bet Inspector is a daily horse racing tipster service with selections issued each morning, directly via email. All that you supposedly have to do is place your bets and collect your winnings.
When it comes to the bets that Bet Inspector issue, there is a fair amount of variety. This is however mostly focused in terms of the quantity of bets that are advised and the odds that you are backing. Rather unfortunately however, there isn’t a lot o detail that comes with Daniel Belfour and James Wright’s selections. I know of a number of tipsters who like to provide analysis, which bookies are offering the best odds etc. however none of this is made available with Bet Inspector.
All of this brings me to the numbers side of things. Rather disappointingly, there isn’t a whole lot of information provided in this regard. There is no mention of any staking plan from Daniel Belfour and James Wright. This is particularly frustrating for me as al of their claimed profits are in pounds and pence. This means that taking the headlining example of making £96,000 in a year could be 900 points to £100 stakes, 90 points to £1,000 stakes or 9 points to £10,000 stakes.
There I also no claimed strike rate, something else which I find to be massively disappointing. It will also likely come as no real surprise to learn that there is no proofing provided with Bet Inspector either. This means that it isn’t even possible to calculate a figure. About the best thing that I can say in this regard is that Daniel Belfour and James Wright are very good at insinuating that your win rate will increase exponentially.
How does the product work?
According to Daniel Belfour and James Wright, they are not tipsters. Of course, they are providing their subscribers with tips, but what they do is different. This is in no small part down to how Bet Inspector works. There is no way of skirting around it so I will be blunt. The pair claim that “64% of ALL horse racing data is kept hidden from the public” and that “Bookies use this information to their advantage and steal you money”. This is one hell of a claim to make, especially given that there is no real evidence backing this up. Bet Inspector uses this claimed hidden information to their advantage and pairs it with information that is publicly available to find the best possible horses for the days racing.
In terms of how the pair claim to have access to this supposedly secret information. They were supposedly employed in a “corporate surveillance facility” and investigated “corrupt police officers, fraudulent business men, unscrupulous lawyers, shady politicians and numerous multinational corporations”. After a few pints, they supposedly decided to turn their skills to horse racing where they discovered this supposed dirge of information.
What is the initial investment?
There is only one option available if you want to purchase Bet Inspector which frankly, seems to be too good to be true. This is a one time cost of £29.99 (plus VAT) and seemingly provides you with a lifetime of access to tips. It is worth pointing out that Daniel Belfour and James Wright do offer a full 60 day money back guarantee. Because Bet Inspector is sold through Clickbank, this does mean that you shouldn’t have too many problems claiming a refund if you are unhappy with the service.
What is the rate of return?
I have already mentioned that the headlining income for Bet Inspector is in £96,000 per year. More specifically the number that is used in a highly questionable William Hill “screenshot” is £96,212.78. There is also a mention of £260 in a day. The incomes that the supposed testimonials for Bet Inspector mention are all in line with this as well. This includes “more than £2,000 each week” and an average of around £8,500 per month over 2 months.
Where do I even begin to start with Bet Inspector? As I have already said, it has certainly been an entertaining look at things. The marketing is clearly aimed at those punters who can’t seem to bag a winner and clearly plays on the feeling that the bookies know something that you don’t. Of course there is some truth to this. After all, most bookmakers are billion pound international companies. If they didn’t have some edge over Joe Average, they wouldn’t be in business. The idea that there is a mass conspiracy across the horse racing industry is much less realistic.
There are a few facts that I want to establish before I continue with this. The first, is that evidence is the only way to really prove your argument. The second is that Daniel Belfour and James Wright make some very outlandish claims. Ergo, it would make sense that there would be some very strong evidence backing their claims up. Put bluntly, there is hardly any evidence at all. This is definitely a problem for me.
This isn’t the only problem though. The fact that there is no proofing or even any way to put the profits into context is one of the biggest problems that I have with Bet Inspector. £90,000 is a hell of a lot of money to make through betting, however I want to see how exactly this figure is reached. I have already covered this so I won’t dwell on it to much but it is a point that definitely needs to be reiterated.
Of course as far as I am concerned, all of this is quite obvious (possibly in no small part due to the number of products I have looked at that follow this same template). The truth is though that all of these issues are only one half of the problem when it comes to Bet Inspector. Whilst anybody can look at this and be uncertain, I like to really dig deep and see what I can find and it is when looking into this back end (as I like to call it) that I usually see the most damning evidence against things. In the case of Bet Inspector, I didn’t even have to look that far.
The vendor who is selling Bet Inspector has actually released a few products so far this year and not one of them has actually proven successful. This is more than telling in my book and is reason enough on its own not to bother buying into their latest effort. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people looking to gain an edge with their betting and some people out there will churn out products in order to take a slice of this pie. In my experience, they are rarely genuine and have little concern with actually generating a decent income for their subscribers.
There is little more that I believe that I can really say about Bet Inspector that I haven’t already covered here and in other reviews of the same vendors so called tipster services. I believe that the most likely outcome if you were to follow the tips provided by Bet Inspector is a rather substantial loss of earnings in the long run. As such, this is definitely one to avoid.
