Quick on the Draw is a self selection betting system from Andrew David and Les Robson for football. The pair claim that by following their betting advice, you can expect to double your betting bank every 12 weeks.
What does the product offer?
Quick on the Draw is a new and rather interesting looking sports betting tipster service. Whilst it isn’t entirely clear from the name, it is a football based system that appears to have some promise. This certainly would explain the headlines in the sales material for Quick on the Draw which makes the rather brash claim that the service is low risk and can double your betting bank in a 3 month period. With this in mind, let’s take a look at what you are actually getting for your money.
As a product, Quick on the Draw comes as a straight forward PDF document that details everything that you need to know about how the system works. Andrew David and Les Robson have also created a member’s area as well as a Facebook group that allows Quick on the Draw users to interact. Finally, there is an additional strategy included on a “bonus” basis.
As well as the strategy itself (which I will explore below), Andrew David and Les Robson have also included a staking plan for Quick on the Draw. This is necessary in order to generate the results that are claimed and does carry some potential risk.
Essentially, Quick on the Draw utilises a level staking plan of 5% per bet. This does mean that your bets are compounded and in my opinion, do reach some rather eyewatering numbers. Especially on the “Trade Out” method.
The strategy that Quick on the Draw implements is fundamentally rather simple and it is something that most users should be able to do. If for some reason you are struggling there appears to be a decent support network in place. This mostly happens through the aforementioned member’s area as well as the Facebook group.
Unfortunately, there is no full proofing supplied for Quick on the Draw which is disappointing as the results shown on the sales page suggest that the service has been tested for a full year.
Whilst I am happy to accept that this may be in part down to the fact that this is a self selection service and results may vary from one user to the next, I would have liked to have seen how Andrew David and Les Robson have performed themselves.
How does the product work?
It can be rather difficult to write about something like Quick on the Draw without giving everything away so I will choose my words carefully. I don’t think that it is at all fair to expose the methods of a content creator. None the less, I can talk about what you can expect from Quick on the Draw in some detail.
There are a lot of people in the betting world who continue to make money through laying a draw. This is a straightforward strategy that does what it says on the tin. It was Les Robson however who decided to buck this trend and actively back draws to occur.
This is (at its heart) what Quick on the Draw is all about. You pick certain games based off a specific criterion and back draws until you win. If you lose 3 bets then you end the process for the day.
This kind of recovery staking is low risk in theory however it is worth pointing out that when you incur losses for the day, they may amount to a pretty substantial figure. This is something that is rather overlooked by Andrew David and Les Robson when they are selling Quick on the Draw.
Once you have calculated your stake and identified the bets that you wish to place, you must then make a decision about whether or not you want to back bets and leave them or to trade in play.
Andrew David and Les Robson both recommend in play betting if you can saying that this is the best way to ensure that you get the most from Quick on the Draw. This is also necessary in order to get the eye grabbing headline results.
There are rather more subtleties to the product than I have suggested here however truth be told, it does not strike me as fair or reasonable to publish in full the fine details and processes behind Quick on the Draw.
What is the initial investment?
At the time of writing, Quick on the Draw is being sold for a one off cost of £127. This is the only option that is available and it is a rather pricey one. Andrew David and Les Robson have ultimately chosen to market Quick on the Draw through Canonbury Publishing.
This means that the 30 day money back guarantee that is on offer is one that is likely to be honoured. Whatever your thoughts on the publishing house, they are very good in this regard.
Naturally, you will also require a betting bank in order to get things started. Andrew David and Les Robson began with a £300 betting bank for their trial of Quick on the Draw, a number that they say is the minimum that you should really be looking to start with.
What is the rate of return?
I find it to be interesting that the key claim around Quick on the Draw is that you can expect to double your betting bank in 12 weeks. In spite of Andrew David and Les Robson making this rather bold claim, it is seemingly unproven past a betting bank of £300.
I am very curious to see how Quick on the Draw would actually scale to larger bets rather than the hypothetical number that has allowed the system to produce. Unfortunately, this seems to be none existent outside of the world of back testing which is questionable at best.
I have to be straight and say that I am massively conflicted by Quick on the Draw for a number of reasons. First of all, whilst I can see how the selection process can work out on paper, the fact that the recovery system exists as it does doesn’t do anything to improve my opinion.
Even a reasonable recovery staking plan tends to make me nervous these days. There is also the cost which is frankly, rather prohibitive. Whilst I don’t believe that Quick on the Draw is overpriced per se, it is definitely one of the more expensive that I have looked at.
In spite of the criticisms and concerns that I have about Quick on the Draw, there is a lot going on here that suggests that there is a decent product.
The fact is that Andrew David is a phenomenally successful bettor and he has produced more than his fair share of quality betting products. His involvement really helps to lend a very firm air of legitimacy to Quick on the Draw. With this in mind, I don’t see why he would risk his reputation on a sub par product.
For my money, Quick on the Draw is simply a bit too expensive. The methods that are explored aren’t anything I would consider to be new or in any way revolutionary, and whilst they are very well polished, I am doubtful that there is really £127 worth of information here.
In spite of this, I have seen worse put together products at half the price that deserve much less attention than Quick on the Draw.
Quick on The draw Update:
Since publishing this initial review we have had some contact with Andrew David and I have looked over proofing for the product. I have to credit him for sharing this and it has definitely removed a lot of the questions that I have about the service.
In fact, I would go as far as to commend his results which have demonstrated a rather handsome profit to date including a very profitable April in which doubled the betting bank. May has also continued in a profitable vein.
There were some points raised by Andrew David in terms of my opinions on his pricing and whilst I have warmed to it somewhat (having seen a demonstrable profit), I stand by my opinion that this is a product that is definitely priced at the premium end of the market. As to whether or not it can be deemed expensive, that is a much more subjective thing.
Truthfully, I would say that the most important thing is that Quick on the Draw is making money for users at present and it seems very plausible to me that you will make some, if not all, of the purchase cost back within the first month or so.
Communication With The QOTD Author:
We have had an email communication with the author regarding some of the points made on the review, here are the details and clarifications:
“This kind of recovery staking is low risk in theory however it is worth pointing out that when you incur losses for the day, they may amount to a pretty substantial figure. This is something that is rather overlooked by Andrew David and Les Robson when they are selling Quick on the Draw.!”
“If you have a losing day its not a substantial loss, its just 2 points… We aim to win 1 point and the max loss is 2 point so just confused where Curtis got that from?”
“Quoting from their sales material on the website:
“In month 1 we start with £300 and stake 5% in each bet (so that’s £15 a bet)”
Then, in month 2 we stake 5% of the new total bank”.
My point there was that whilst you might only lose 2 points, that’s 10% of a betting bank at stake per day. In fact, they actually talk about losing 4 points in August of 2016 on their site. 4 points at 5% per point means losing 20% of your betting bank in a few month. It’s really just a question of how you view the numbers.
For the purposes of transparency, I thought it was worth taking the position of percentage as people should be fully aware of what to expect.”
“Yes but the 5% staking plan is given as an example, if you look in the PDF its states to start with 2.5% of staking plan or even less as it depends on the individuals risk appetite so plenty of options for risk thresholds.
Also the longest back to back losing days has been 3 ever, so around 6 points, and in fact just 2 days over the last 40 weeks if you look at my testing pod where i gave selections free in advance from the link i sent you previously. So that would still leave 70% of bank left.
Also remember when using the % of bank the stake reduces in line with new bank total.
Therefore this is low risk by the mere fact of the win/lose pattern and losing runs and also the fact that it ‘can’ be started with a 20 point bank but thats not set in stone for the reasons given above.
I also say in the PDF that you can start with a 30 point if it makes the end user feel more comfortable, so all in all the flexible approach was absent from the review as it is stated in the rules.”
