The Betting Experts is a brand new horse racing tipster service that claims to be able to generate some incredibly substantial results. Operated by Terry Kirk, Gordon Chaplin and Gareth Clark, the team claim between that between them, they can genuinely call themselves The Betting Experts.
What does the product offer?
I would like to open not by dissecting the product, as is oft my want, but instead to take a minute to talk about the marketing approach of whoever is actually behind The Betting Experts (because truthfully, I don’t believe that Terry Kirk, Gordon Chaplin and Gareth Clark exist outside of trying to reassure users that there is some sense of legitimacy to their tips). The website is slick, looks a lot more professional than the crap that we are used to seeing and in many respects, it is simply well put together. This applies doubly so when you compare The Betting Experts to most of its competitors, however this is a perfect example of how you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover.
Truthfully, this appearance is only once aspect of The Betting Experts and I intend to cover in detail all of the reasons that you shouldn’t be giving The Betting Experts your interest. I will start with my personal favourite which are the headlines. Given that this is the first thing that you see on a website, you could be forgiven for thinking that users can expect a genuine outlook on what is on offer from Terry Kirk, Gordon Chaplin and Gareth Clark.
Their first headline reads thus: “Team of Betting Experts Make More Than £130,000 Per Person, Per Year With THIS Calculated Method”. They then go on to say that horse racing is more than a sport. It’s a financial strategy! These are all things that I don’t think any genuine and professional tipster would come out with, and yet here we have Terry Kirk, Gordon Chaplin and Gareth Clark a so called team of betting experts telling us that this is exactly what their service can offer you.
In terms of what you are really getting (because let’s not mince words, most of what we have heard so far from the The Betting Experts sales team has more to do with salesmanship than any real product). Truthfully, The Betting Experts is a rather straight forward affair. All that you have to do as a subscriber to The Betting Experts is wait for Terry Kirk, Gordon Chaplin and Gareth Clark to issue their selections via email (this is usually in the morning of the race), place the bets and supposedly, win.
I could talk some more about the structure that is in place for creation of selections for The Betting Experts, but frankly, I don’t think that there is much benefit in this. Terry Kirk, Gordon Chaplin and Gareth Clark are purposefully quiet in terms of what information that they provide about The Betting Experts and I have good reason to suspect that this is because there isn’t really anything to the service once you strip it down.
Even in terms of the numbers, there is no mention of any staking plan, strike rate etc. There is plenty of suggestion that The Betting Experts is low risk with talk of how much money you can expect to make, however Terry Kirk, Gordon Chaplin and Gareth Clark never tell you how often you will lose money in this pursuit. I feel like the same philosophy can be easily applied to the staking. It is all well and good The Betting Experts promising 6 figure plus incomes in the sales material, but if Terry Kirk, Gordon Chaplin and Gareth Clark are expecting you to stake £10,000 per go, on a hypothetical 25% strike rate, this is a big ask.
How does the product work?
In terms of how cThe Betting Expertsxn actually works, we are once again left with wanting. The information that Terry Kirk, Gordon Chaplin and Gareth Clark provide is minimal. In fact, to really understand The Betting Experts, we have to look at the supposed players behind it, mostly because there is no other information.
The first character that we are introduced to is one Terry. He is supposedly the head of communications for the Terry Kirk, Gordon Chaplin and Gareth Clark and knows horse racing like the back of his hand. Combine this with a claimed 20 years of working in the equastrion PR field and you can see how Terry Kirk supposedly has a large number of connections. In fact, the sales material for The Betting Experts refers to him as the “go-to-guy for the latest gossip in racing”.
What all of this actually suggests is that there is a strong element of The Betting Experts which involves some kind of insider knowledge. Those who know what the red flags that I look out for will have identified this as one already. Rather than talking openly about how things work, the marketing team behind The Betting Experts have instead chosen to make Terry Kirk, Gordon Chaplin and Gareth Clark a part of some shady background which cannot be divulged and discussed only in secret.
Next up we have Gordon Chaplin. He is supposedly the “token silver spoon” and is the head of finance for The Betting Experts. Given that he supposedly knows money better than anyone and has been working in finance for a number of years as a trader. We are told that stocks and shares are Gordon Chaplin’s bread and butter and that “he knows how to get BIG financial returns from small investments”. I am rather intrigued to see just how much this knowledge of trading will translate to real profits for The Betting Experts users.
And lastly, we reach Gareth Clark. He is supposedly the “tech guy” and seemingly the go to for any problems that you ultimately may face with The Betting Experts. I can’t help but feel that Gareth is somewhat oversold as a pariah of betting. Truthfully, despite his rather pretty claims that he understands the mathematics of betting (this includes things like statistics, algorithms as well as data patterns “and the rest”).
Supposedly his word is final on any selections which are issued to subscribers to The Betting Experts. In fact he says “No tips are ever sent out without me running the numbers first. No matter how hot the track-side tip off may be.”. This all sounds good, but the astute amongst you will note that there is nothing that really talks about what kind of parameters Gareth Clark’s mathematical approach utilises.
What is the initial investment?
At the time of writing, The Betting Experts is being sold for £29.99 plus VAT. This is a one time cost and seemingly provides you with selections for life. When I am looking at products like The Betting Experts however, I often find myself questioning quite how long the “life” of them may be. In my experience, these products rarely last long and even when they are operational, the results are more than questionable (something that I will explore in full below).
It is of note that there is a full 60 day money back guarantee in place for The Betting Experts should you find that the product isn’t for you. This also happens to be backed up by the Clickbank group.
What is the rate of return?
The numbers that Terry Kirk, Gordon Chaplin and Gareth Clark throw around in terms of how much you can expect to make through The Betting Experts are rather significantly different depending on where you look in the sales material. For example, the headlines quite comfortably claim that anywhere from £120,000 to £160,000 per year is attainable by an “average user”. There is also talk of how The Betting Experts is able to bring in £350 per day. It is worth pointing out that despite these claims being quoted in pounds and pence, there is no staking plan which really tells us how much you have to bet to attain these results.
It has been a while since I have looked at a product like The Betting Experts and I remain disappointed that services like this are being pushed by affiliates, all of whom seem to be more interested in making a quick buck than recommending decent and working products. It isn’t difficult to see that there isn’t really any supporting evidence to suggest that Terry Kirk, Gordon Chaplin and Gareth Clark’s selections will even come close to generating profit.
I can go as in depth on this as you would like, but there are a few key points that I feel should be highlighted. First of all, Terry Kirk, Gordon Chaplin and Gareth Clark supposedly started tipping their selections way back in 2011 on an unnamed betting forum. There should be at least some proofing for this 6 year period. Instead, The Betting Experts provides nothing and we are simply expected to believe that they have been successful.
The other issue in a similar vein is one that I have already touched upon and that is profitability. First things first, I don’t think that any tipster can really make you 6 figures per year unless you happen to be betting incredibly high stakes in the first place. This of course carries with it its own risks in terms of breaking a betting bank etc.
Finally, I want to take a look at the tone that the marketing sets. Whilst whoever is actually behind The Betting Experts has really tried their best to make Terry Kirk, Gordon Chaplin and Gareth Clark seem legitimate, it is clear to me that most of the marketing is designed simply to appeal to those who don’t know better. This lack of legitimacy is for me by far and away the worst problem with The Betting Experts.
All things considered, I don’t see The Betting Experts as being a worthwhile buy. If you are particularly optimistic and want to bet on paper, then maybe I can see why you might want to give it a try (given the 60 day money back guarantee and relatively low initial costs). For me however, The Betting Experts simply sits amongst the various examples of tipster services that serve to make a quick income for the marketer behind them.
With that in mind, I don’t personally see how The Betting Experts is worth a look. I would rather find a decent service that will allow me to build a second income from home. Realistically, all that I can see happening with “Terry Kirk, Gordon Chaplin and Gareth Clark’s” selections are that you will lose a lot of money, rather quickly. All whilst paying for the privilege.
