Boosted Bets is a new horse racing tipster service from Marcus Green. He claims that his bets provide a substantial profit in a very short space of time.
Introduction to Boosted Bets
There is a lot to process with Boosted Bets. So much so, that I am honestly not sure where I am supposed to begin. I mean, if you believe Marcus Green, his credentials are flawless and the whole thing simply works. Furthermore, it is incredibly cheap, so why wouldn’t you want to sign up?
The short answer to this is that there are actually a lot of reasons. It isn’t very often that I can say from simply looking at a page that there are reasonable doubts, but in the case of Boosted Bets, that is very much the case.
As well as this, there is a lot of additional evidence which leads me to believe that this isn’t going to be a profitable venture. With that in mind, let’s have a look at Marcus Green’s service and what you can expect.
What Does Boosted Bets Offer?
The approach that Marcus Green takes with Boosted Bets is one that you will have doubtless seen many times before. Selections are issued directly to subscribers on the morning of racing, directly via email. Now, these emails are often lacking in data.
There is barely enough that you know what to bet on and you are on your own from there. In fact, Marcus Green uses this as a sales point claiming that you can simply follow Boosted Bets’s advice with a bookmaker of your choice.
If you are so inclined to take this service on, I would definitely be using Oddschecker as you will receive no insight in where to bet and honestly, every bit of profit will ultimately count.
In terms of the bets themselves, there remains a strong focus on a straight forward approach with Boosted Bets.
This means that you will receive simple win bets from Marcus Green with the advice that you should place these with the bookie of your choice. The volume of bets is almost distinctly average, as is the range of odds. In that regard you can typically expect a range of lower to middling odds from Boosted Bets, something which frankly, seems at odds with the claimed income potential.
I feel like it shouldn’t come as any surprise to learn that there is no real staking plan in place for Boosted Bets either. Marcus Green makes no mention of anything, a factor that is particularly disappointing given the fact that all of the results and references to numbers are in pounds and pence.
Realistically, I would be inclined to stake to just 1 point per bet if I were following Boosted Bets. I would also have a 100 point betting bank as a bare minimum, as I genuinely believe that there is a lot of potential to lose money here.
Not at all surprisingly, there is no claimed strike rate offered for Boosted Bets either. Marcus Green makes a lot of insinuation that you can expect to win a large number of bets, but there are no numbers that are discussed.
It is also worth keeping in mind that there is no proofing provided that we can use to calculate any kind of number. Rather disappointingly, this kind of thing is commonplace with Boosted Bets.
How Does Boosted Bets Work?
Whilst we aren’t actually ever told anything about what you can realistically expect from Boosted Bets, Marcus Green does like to talk a lot about himself and ho the service supposedly works. He claims that he was previously the “Director of Integrity Services at the British Horseracing Authority” (a real organisation).
He then goes on to talk at length about how horse racing is effectively rigged by the stewards who test horses on behalf of the British Horseracing Authority. Quite why Marcus Green chose to not shut down this kind of practice isn’t explored or in fact even touched upon, a factor that I believe plays into the inherent cynicism I have for Boosted Bets.
So, Marcus Green used to be high up and everybody was bent. What does this have to do with the selections for Boosted Bets? Supposedly, Marcus Green is still in touch with these same questionable individuals who are controlling horseracing behind the scenes.
By relying on them for inside information about when a horse is supposed to run well, he claims that Boosted Bets subscribers can profit by backing those same horses. Again, I wish to highlight how this sounds like something stand out, however there is no real evidence that backs any of this up.
What is the Initial Investment?
If you want to sign up for Boosted Bets, there is just one option available. This is a one time cost of £29 with VAT to pay on top of this. It is worth noting that Marcus Green says that this will get you access to his selections for life, however there is no wider indicator as to what “life” means here.
It is worth noting that because Boosted Bets is being sold through Clickbank there is a full 60 day money back guarantee in place. I also feel that I should give Marcus Green what little credit I can and acknowledge that he points this fact out.
What is the Rate of Return?
The headline for Boosted Bets makes the claim that Marcus Green made £94,801.82 in the last year, a claim which is backed up by a questionable screenshot of a betting account with William Hill. Other numbers that are thrown about range from a claim that you will make “more than £7,500 every single month from betting” to an extra “£1,750+ every single week”.
I cannot stress enough that there is no context for these numbers with Marcus Green providing no proofing for Boosted Bets, nor does he discuss what the stakes involved were to get these results.
Conclusion on the Boosted Bets service?
I always like to approach any new product with an open mind, however on occasion, there simply isn’t enough reason to believe that it is genuine. This is definitely the case with Boosted Bets. There are so many ridiculous claims that are made, all with very little evidence to back them up, as well as a number of problems that are perhaps less forward facing.
So where do I start in wrapping this up?
First of all, I don’t believe for one minte that any of the results that are claimed are genuine. I have already touched on this, but frankly, Boosted Bets seems to be leading with a very lazy approach of simply throwing big numbers around without substantiating them.
Honestly, I don’t even see it as being difficult to question these numbers. £1,750 per week, even to £250 stakes (which would be significantly more than most people would bet) would mean 7 points per week, as a minimum. That is a significant claim, but I am brought once again back to the lack of evidence.
Moving aside from this quite obvious and substantive issue, there is also the claims that Marcus Green makes about his standing and where his tips come from.
Put bluntly, if somebody who was genuinely the Director of Integrity Services at the British Horseracing Authority was aware of such activity and didn’t act on it, it would represent a huge breach of ethical and business practice of the kind that horse racing may well struggle to recover from. So, how much faith do you put into this element of Boosted Bets? In my opinion, it doesn’t warrant a whole lot.
All of these reasons seem like perfectly valid ones for not recommending Boosted Bets to me, but the fact of the matter is that there is even more than this still. I am very familiar with the vendor who is selling Boosted Bets and it is unfortunate that this is not for positive reasons. With all of this in mind, I see little reason to recommend this as a service.
I don’t believe that you will actually make any money off it in the long term which ultimately, isn’t good enough.
The website is typical of the saying “a fool and their money are soon parted”
Avoid this rubbish.
