AW Edge Review – Premium Sports Tipsters

AW Edge is a new to market horse racing tipster service that is being provided through Premium Sports Tipsters. Selections come courtesy of a tipster referred to only as “Ian”.

Introduction to AW Edge

When it comes to making a profit through betting, I feel like consistency is key. Not just in terms of how much money you’re making though, so much as the approach that you take to betting. Often times I hear people talk about their selection process as a “formula”. I don’t particularly like that analogy, but I am going to use it here. The fact of the matter is that the less variables you have as part of your “formula”, the easier it is to calculate, and the more accurate the result will ultimately be.

This is something that you can actually see if you just look at any bookmaker. The reason that horse racing has much broader odds than football (for example) is that there are less variables. It is more predictable. And it is with that in mind that I am actually quite interested in today’s review subject, AW Edge. This is a service that is based exclusively around all weather racing. This has a number of benefits, but the one that Premium Sports Tipsters and Ian don’t mention is the one that is actually most interesting to me. That idea of consistency.

But this is more than just something that is conceptually interesting. The fact is that I’ve seen plenty of services in my time that have an intriguing concept, but it if isn’t making you money, it is nothing more than a potentially good idea. The thing is, AW Edge is making money. In fact, what Premium Sports Tipsters show in their proofing is that Ian is actually a pretty canny bettor with (and here is that term again) consistent results. That really starts to look like a complete package, so let’s get into it and see what’s what.  

What Does AW Edge Offer?

AW Edge is a nice and simple offering. In fact, I can’t really recall the last time that I saw a tipster service that I looked at that was so uncomplicated. This absolutely is not a criticism, I should hasten to add. There is a hell of a lot to be said for simply looking at something and immediately getting what it is all about. And that is what you can do with Ian’s tips. And there are ultimately a lot of positives to this.

First things first, let’s talk about the logistics of the service. I can’t even say that AW Edge is a near daily tipster service. It categorically isn’t. In fact, there are often several days between bets being advised. One would imagine that there are a few reasons for this, some of which I want to talk about later. But a key factor is that there is simply less betting on the six all weather race tracks in the UK.

As you might expect from a modern tipster service, Premium Sports Tipsters send out selections for AW Edge directly via email. These will land with you before 10am on the day of racing which gives you a decent amount of time to get bets placed etc. (most all weather racing is later in the day).

Something that I like is that you can also choose to get tips sent to you via the Telegram app. For those of you who may not be familiar with this, Telegram is a messaging app that reports to be the fastest way to send messages to your phone. This has two advantages for AW Edge. Firstly, you get tips literally as they come in. Secondly (and this might be a bit of a personal preference), getting tips directly to your phone like that makes them harder to miss.

With all of that out of the way, let’s talk about the bets. Probably not surprisingly given everything else so far, it is all incredibly straightforward and simple. Again, not a criticism. So, let’s explore that a bit. First things first, all selections that Ian advises are to be backed to win. This is definitely a good thing in my mind, because one of the things worth noting with AW Edge is that the odds you get aren’t great.

As I often do when this is the case, I would probably recommend taking advantage of an odds comparison site if you are able. The fact is that the average odds for AW Edge are just 2.84 to BOG. For a change, this average is actually representative of what you can get as well. By doing a bit of shopping around for odds (especially earlier in the day when selections are issued), there is the chance to increase your take home profit by a decent percentage.

And in some ways, that kind of ties in with what Ian is doing with AW Edge too. Because the stakes involved with this are bloody significant. You will be advised to place anywhere from 3 points all the way up to 5 points per bet. It is very apparent to me that the goal is to maximise the returns per bet, and without doing everything you can in this regard, I think this would be a massive flop.

Obviously, there are already the reasons that I have mentioned. But there is also the fact that AW Edge is very low volume. I said earlier that you aren’t betting every day, but I didn’t really talk about how far that is taken. Whilst Ian and Premium Sports Tipsters point out you won’t be placing more than two bets on a given day, I want to show how far that goes. In almost 6 months there have been just over 100 bets. We are looking at very low numbers.

Finally, I want to talk about the strike rate. Because the fact is that none of this really counts for much if you aren’t winning all that often. At the time of writing, Ian has a strike rate with AW Edge of 54.88%. That is really quite an impressive number to achieve, even with the lower odds that are involved.

How Does AW Edge Work?

One of the things that I like about AW Edge is that Ian and Premium Sports Tipsters do actually talk a little bit about how the service works. Really, this can be put down to one simple concept, and that is one that I was talking about all the way back in the introduction to this review. Specifically, they say that “huge gambles are always sought by owners and trainers on these tracks” because of the consistency that all weather racing provides.

Building on this, Ian aims to find value in this area. Something that he is seemingly able to do very well, as the results attest to. This is something that I think some people may question. Value in horse racing is all about finding races where a horse has been incorrectly priced. What we typically see in this regard is silly numbers. A 33/1 horse has been priced at 50/1. AW Edge isn’t based on this though, and as such, you actually win quite a lot.

This is all helpful information, and if I’m really honest about it, I think that it serves the purpose of giving you some idea of what you can expect from AW Edge. Sure, Ian doesn’t give you a detailed step by step breakdown of what everything entails, but asking that would ultimately be pretty unreasonable. Of course, I would like information. I always will, but que sera.

I feel like one of the reasons you can take this attitude is that Premium Sports Tipsters provide very comprehensive proofing for AW Edge. What this shows you is that whilst you don’t get to see the details, the fundamentals of what Ian is doing does work. You can see the stakes, you can see the low volume of bets, and you can see how often you win. All of that means that in my mind, at least, you aren’t coming into this blind. 

What is the Initial Investment?

So far it has been smooth sailing with AW Edge, but now it is time to talk about one of the big downsides, and that is (to some degree, depending on who you ask and how you sign up) the cost. Premium Sports Tipsters are asking £40 per month for access to Ian’s selections. Whilst this isn’t prohibitive and is probably about what I would expect to pay for a tipster service, it is quite a lot for a service that advised just 9 selections in July.  

There is drastically better value to be had if you want to sign up for longer though. A quarterly subscription to AW Edge will cost you just £41 for your first quarter after which you pay £82 per month. For the best value, you have to sign up for a full 6 months. This will set you back just £77 which works out at a very modest £13 per month.

Something worth keeping in mind however is that there is no money back guarantees or refunds on AW Edge. This is standard for products from Premium Sports Tipsters and as such, doesn’t count against it too much. It is just a word of warning  because it can be very easy to get caught up in the additional value those longer subscriptions bring.

What is the Rate of Return?

Since going live, AW Edge is currently at a profit of just over 200 points to BOG. That’s a bloody impressive number to have hit considering Ian has been going for just 6 months. To SP it is still 140 points, whilst BSP sits neatly in the middle at 170 points. All of this is exactly what I want to see from a tipster service.

The only problem with all of this is the small fact that the odds have been inflated. Now, don’t get me wrong, there is arguable justification for this. You aren’t betting regularly so you have to make every win count. I fully appreciate that fact. But I do also think it’s important to keep things in context. According to the data Premium Sports Tipsters present the average stakes are a little under 5 points. This means being generous, you can expect to quarter those results for 1 point stakes.

With that said, there is context that can be provided. The ROI to BOG for AW Edge is 54.21%. An amazing feat over 6 months. And realistically, I can see no reason why Ian can’t maintain this kind of result moving forward either.

Conclusion for AW Edge

Every now and then I come across something that I can’t really find much quarrel with. AW Edge is one of them. This is about as solid a service as I can remember seeing for some time. But that doesn’t mean that it is something that simply warrants a recommendation either. There is a fair old amount that you need to consider before throwing in your lot. The fact is that whilst this has performed very well, this isn’t something that will suit everybody.

The thing is, that thought process is peppered through everything to do with AW Edge. Some people will feel short changed paying out to receive potentially a handful of bets each month. I can see why you might feel that way. It simply might not be exciting enough for you. But by the same token, I like that Ian isn’t just betting for the sake of betting. There is far too much of that in the tipster services that I look at.

It’s the same deal with the stakes. I can entirely see why you might look at the results and feel a bit misled. Especially because it isn’t really something that Premium Sports Tipsters are transparent about in the sales material, or when they talk about results. But it makes sense for AW Edge. I can think of several tipster services off the top of my head that will stake 100 points per month easily. Ian is only asking you to stake the same amount.

What AW Edge does deliver though are those consistent winners. Consistent profit across SP, BSP, and BOG. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a service that can deliver on all those levels. And that makes for a very attractive proposition. If I’m honest, I only really have two reservations here.

The first is the cost. You have to make a long term investment for this to really represent value for money. The other thing is the fact that whilst I can see Ian continuing in the same vein, AW Edge has only been proofed for 6 months. That isn’t the biggest data sample size. But the truth is that any tipster service can turn at any point. The nature of betting as a form of income means that there is always risk.

With that in mind, I am going to say that if you are able to take advantage of the longer subscription lengths, AW Edge is probably worth some serious consideration. Especially with winter around the corner and all weather racing becoming a much more prevalent betting option. But at the same time, this isn’t going to suit everybody.
