Acura Bets is a new to market horse racing tipster service which is operated by Julian Bradshaw, CEO of the Acura Bets Network. He claims that his team have produced some phenomenal profits.
Introduction to Acura Bets
Where do I even begin with Acura Bets? There is so much to say, just to get you mentally prepared for what you can expect from this service. That is at least, according to Julian Bradshaw. Personally, I am much more cynical of the claims that are made. None the less, it would be remiss of me to ignore something just because I am cynical.
So, let’s start with some of the many headlines. “THIS SYSTEM WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE”, we are told. Immediately followed by a claim of close to £200,000 being made in a year.
“ARE YOU READY TO START A NEW LIFE”
“SAY GOODBYE TO YOUR 9-5 JOB”
“SAY HELLO TO FINANCIAL FREEDOM”
It goes on an on, before Julian Bradshaw makes his personal statement for Acura Bets which reads as follows:
MY MISSION IN LIFE IS TO HELP PEOPLE LIKE YOUR SELF. MY GOAL IS TO TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE BY BEATING THE ODDS TO MAKE YOU A WINNER! I WILL TRIPLE YOUR INCOME AND RID YOUR LIFE OF DEBT.
All good right? Let’s actually have a proper look at Acura Bets and see whether or not it can deliver on this multitude of claims that are made.
What Does Acura Bets Offer?
There is a lot to talk about in terms of what exactly Julian Bradshaw is offering Acura Bets, but effectively, you are getting access to his teams daily selections. Despite the rather grandiose overtones and implications that surround the service, this is a pretty standard affair as far as tipster services go.
So, what exactly do you get? Selections are issued on a daily basis (as I have mentioned) and the logistics are almost exactly what you would expect. Tips are sent directly to subscribers via email, usually the morning of the days racing. All that you have to do we are told, is place those bets online or at your bookies.
Interestingly, given that the Acura Bets Network are supposedly a substantial betting operation, there isn’t a whole lot of information that is provided with these emails. With this in mind, as is so often the case with these kinds of tipster service, Oddschecker will serve you well.
Moving on to the bets themselves, Acura Bets is just incredibly average. Julian Bradshaw and his team exclusively provide you with straight win bets. There are typically just a small handful of bets on a given day, and these are at a range of odds. Typically speaking, you are looking at a little over evens going up to middling odds. There don’t seem to be any big bets from what I have seen.
Now, this isn’t a whole lot to say, but honestly, Acura Bets looks like a wholly unremarkable tipster service. Whether or not you think that this is a good thing is subjective, but given everything that is supposedly involved with the service (a topic I will get to later), I will say that I expected more from Julian Bradshaw, presuming of course that this is all genuine.
In terms of a staking plan, it probably shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to learn that there isn’t actually a whole lot of information that is provided. This is particularly concerning to me as there is a massive amount of disparity in terms of the claimed incomes.
As well as this, the headlining figure has little to no context without any details of how much Julian Bradshaw and his team have been betting to produce this kind of profit. If I am honest, it is just one of a number of problems that I have with Acura Bets, despite their “testimonials” claiming that they are “honest”, “trustworthy”, and not surprisingly “real”.
What they are more than happy to discuss however is the claimed strike rate for the service. Julian Bradshaw says that the Acura Bets Network of tipsters have a historic strike rate of 82%. That is an incredible number that is much more in line with wat you would expect from a lay betting tipster service than one that backs horses to win.
In keeping with the strike rate, I am not at all surprised to learn that there is no evidence to actually back this claim up. Julian Bradshaw provides absolutely no proofing for Acura Bets which is hugely disappointing. It is also yet another area for concern.
There is no reason that any large scale horse racing betting operation wouldn’t keep a record of their bets. The fact that they aren’t provided only really suggests one thing to me and… Well, it doesn’t bodes well. I am of the opinion that the distinctive lack of proofing suggests that these results are likely fabricated, however, as always, I would love to be proven wrong.
How Does Acura Bets Work?
Whilst there isn’t a whole lot of information that is provided about what you can expect from Acura Bets, we are told a lot about how the service works. Kind of. As I have mentioned, Julian Bradshaw is supposedly the CEO of a much larger company and betting network. This is made up of a massive range of different “experts”.
In the sales material, we are introduced to a number of these experts which include the following people:
- James Tattum, a trainer who says that Acura Bets is a “network that listens and allows [him] to show his knowledge”.
- Juliette Morgan, a statistical analyst who has supposedly spent the last 8 years working as a corporate investigator.
- Ravi Ahuja, a professional gambler who says that by combining his skill set with Acura Bets’s connections “make us an unstoppable betting system”.
- Ryan Corbett, a former bookmaker who joined the service after a friend supposedly enjoyed success.
- Wendy Hodgson, a horse racing blogger who (like myself) reviews “all the top betting systems”. Apparently, this time spent allows her to “delve deep into the betting world”.
- Alan Entwistle, another former bookie with a claimed 20 years experience working for a number of top European companies. He says there is nothing he doesn’t know when it comes to systems and stats.
- Kam Chu Yung, another professional gambler who claims that “luck will only be helped with knowledge and that is what thing that this system provides”.
- Christopher White, a stable owner who claims to have worked with Julian Bradshaw in the past, as well as having trained winning horses.
What you will notice about this is it makes it sound like Acura Bets has a multitude of ways of approaching their selections. Especially when you factor in that supposedly, there are 38 different offices across the world, all working with Julian Bradshaw to find profitable bets.
Whilst I will admit that this sounds great in principle, a complete lack of real evidence backing these claims up, as well as a general sense of “far fetchedness” means that I am ultimately very sceptical about this supposed background for Acura Bets.
What is the Initial Investment?
There is just one option if you want to subscribe to Acura Bets, this is a one off payment of £29.99 (plus VAT). We aren’t actually told by Julian Bradshaw how long this will buy you a subscription for. Having a lot of familiarity with produces like this, I would presume that this would be for a lifetime, however how long this ultimately turns out to be will likely be disappointing.
One of the better things that I can say about Acura Bets is that it does come with a 60 day money back guarantee. This is because Julian Bradshaw is selling the service through Clickbank which means that you shouldn’t have problems getting a refund.
What is the Rate of Return?
Now, there are a large number of different claims in terms of how much you can expect to make through Acura Bets. The headlining number is £185,784.54, a mind blowing figure that is only backed up by a hugely questionable screenshot of a William Hill betting account (interestingly, last logged into back in January).
Elsewhere, Julian Bradshaw tells us that on average, Acura Bets members make in excess of £35,000 per year. A massively questionable testimonial is in line with this showing a claimed profit of £36,734, or £37,843 depending on what part of the sales page you are looking at. This represents a significant discrepancy in my book.
On top of all of this, there is the fact that there is no information on what kind of stakes have been placed in either case. As such, these numbers have little context and could be anything. This is all very off putting to me.
Conclusion for Acura Bets
Often time, I like to try and find some kind of balance in how I look at things, but Acura Bets just doesn’t warrant it. There simply isn’t a single element of what Julian Bradshaw claims, that I can bring myself to believe in. The whole service simply stinks of questionability, and I will say here and now, that there simply isn’t anything about this that I would recommend.
There are plenty of reasons for this but ultimately, it boils down to an incredible lack of evidence. Julian Bradshaw makes some incredible claims about what you can supposedly expect from Acura Bets and given that this is a supposedly multinational betting syndicate, you would also expect him to be able to back some of these claims up. He doesn’t.
What seems to be happening here is that an unscrupulous internet marketer has created Acura Bets to just sound believable enough that people might want to buy into it. I’m saying that it seems this way because there is a miniscule chance that I could be wrong, but I would like to point out a few things that exist in the background here.
First of all, the vendor who is selling Acura Bets on Clickbank. They are well known to me and have put out a number of different tipster services, none of which have performed. Secondly, when you actually go to pay for Acura Bets, you are taken to the payment page for one of these previous services, Nexus Betting Network.
I have looked at this before and it had an almost identical sales pitch to Acura Bets. In fact, the website for Acura Bets is actually still hosted on the Nexus Betting Network domain. It has simply been lazily rebranded and pushed as a new product with a new name.
This is obviously incredibly damning evidence and if you had any thoughts about Acura Bets being for you, I hope that I have shut them down. But even without that, the whole thing is just ridiculous really. Tipster services can exist, and they can be profitable. Some people have even become millionaires through betting over a very long time period.
But there aren’t global miracle syndicates out there who are going to turn your life around for £30. What really upsets me about all of this is that the sales material explicitly mentions the pressure of financial debt and how Acura Bets can help you to get out of this. 3 times.
That is pretty unscrupulous, and I would like to hope that this isn’t something that is targeting those who are desperate and in a disadvantageous position, but it comes bloody close. I simply cannot stress enough how much you should avoid Acura Bets.
Yes, there are some methods that can genuinely make you money through betting, but they require work and they are not a quick fix. Things like this belong way away from those who it appears to be targeting as it will only worsen a bad situation.
