Xray Football is a new sports betting tipster service which is being operated by one Paul Harris. It claims to be entirely independent and capable of generating some rather decent profits.
What does the product offer?
I should probably preface this review by pointing out one very obvious thing. The website for Xray Football is rather outdated and this appears to be in no small part down to the fact that whoever is really behind the service first launched it some 3-4 years ago. In spite of this fact, Xray Football has been picked up by the usual affiliate marketing types and is currently doing the rounds. Interestingly, the Clickbank link for the product takes you to a product that appears to have been updated specifically for the upcoming season.
Truth be told, the marketing for Xray Football is very much on the crude side and I believe that this is in no small part down to the age of the original copy. None the less, headlines like “*No B.S* I Guarantee That This is the last service you will ever subscribe to!” paint a certain picture. Furthermore, if a product is going to present itself in a certain fashion, then that is how I will look at it.
So, what are you actually getting with Xray Football? According to Paul Harris, very little it seems. All that you have to do is follow his daily bets. These are issued via email (at least 7 hours before the kick off) and contain very little in the way of information outside of very basic things. In fact, the only thing that is really clear from what I have seen is that Xray Football does involve backing a large number of leagues, some more obscure than others. None the less, we are told several times that there is a focus on the “UK Premier Season”.
In terms of a staking plan, there isn’t really anything that is offered which is a disappointment. My best bet however would be a simple level affair staking one point on each bet. Ultimately this is all rather disappointing however as we are left with very little information on how Paul Harris has steered Xray Football to the claimed profits and certainly no proofing as such.
If there is no information on a staking plan, you may well be pleasantly surprised to learn that there is still a claimed strike rate. This is an astonishing figure with Paul Harris saying that in 199 bets which have been proofed (with no mention on where bets were supposedly placed etc). This means a literal handful of selections have supposedly lost in a 3 month window. Once again, I must point out my scepticism.
This only leaves the question of a strike rate. Paul Harris claims that of 199 proofed bets (which from my research cannot be dug up anywhere), 190 of them were winning bets. This would mean a strike rate of around 95%, a figure that I would be sceptical if a top lay bettor made the claim.
How does Xray Football work?
According to Paul Harris, he has been a “passionate football punter” for a long time during which he has encountered both winning and losing periods. Over the years he claims to have been constantly fine tuning his approach to betting looking at a “whole range of factors” which could affect the outcome of the map. There is also a vague allusion to value. After a period of time, Paul Harris claims, he had an amazing breakthrough which ultimately is the basis for Xray Football.
This ”breakthrough” is described as being like magic. You do not have to be particularly astute to understand that this means that we aren’t actually going to receive any information in terms of how selections are actually made. This is always a red flag for me when dealing with this kind of product as I do believe that you are entitled to understand the basics of what you are buying into.
What is the initial investment?
Xray Football is very cheap, especially compared to the majority of tipster services currently on the market. In fact Paul Harris is asking just £19.99 to receive selections for the year. This is suspiciously cheap and I have good reason to believe that there are reasons for this that I will get to later in this review.
It is worth pointing out that there is a full 60 day money back guarantee in place, something which is actually advertised in the sales material.
What is the rate of return?
It is claimed in the sales material for Xray Football (which is woefully outdated) that Xray Football made 149.5 points of profit in just under 3 months. This is a rather substantial claim however I feel that it is of importance to keep in mind that there is no proofing to back any of this up, nor is there any other evidence.
Conclusion on Xray Football
Once again, I feel that it is particularly important to point out that the website for Xray Football is, on the surface, woefully outdated and yet the vendor is clearly looking to continue to make money through the service. This discrepancy is a concerning starting point for Xray Football and frankly, things only get worse from there.
There are a lot of claims made and there is simply no evidence that any of them are true. The proofing that is provided (and I use that term very loosely) is simply Paul Harris telling you how much Xray Football has supposedly has made. This isn’t good enough for a number of reasons, none of which I believe need to be explained.
The real concern for me here is the sheer fact that Xray Football is being promoted and how it is being promoted. This is being pushed as a new product and whilst all my research shows that Xray Football didn’t work before. There isn’t anything to suggest that it will work now either. The fact is that despite being inexpensive, I still don’t see any value on offer here. Whether it is because Xray Football is being promoted under seemingly questionable circumstances or simply because it doesn’t seem to work, I can’t recommend avoiding Xray Football enough.
