Football Hawk is a sports betting tipster service which is being offered on the Tipstrr platform. I offers some very strong looking results at an inexpensive cost.
Introduction to Football Hawk
One of the things that I don’t think that I talk about here often enough is value. Not value of odds, that is something that comes up on so many tipster services it is almost impossible not to talk about it. But the value that a given tipster service offers.
With prices really starting to creep up across the market, when something comes along that I consider to be inexpensive, I really like to jump on it. The fact of the matter is that whilst a seasoned bettor will be happy to drop £45 per month on a tipster service, if you starting out, that is a big ask. Todays offering from Tipstrr, Football Hawk, is priced very reasonably indeed and can ultimately be bought on a monthly basis for less than a quid a day. Is it any good though? Let’s find out.
What Does Football Hawk Offer?
I want to start by talking a little bit about variety. Football is a massively varied sport and whilst I can see why some tipsters like to focus on certain betting markets, Football Hawk throws this out of the window. In fact, a glance at Tipstrr’s stats for the service show a tipster service that has advised bets on no less than 8 different betting markets.
These range from accumulators, to goal markets, to HT/FT bets, and even Asian handicap betting. The volume of tips advised through Football Hawk is manageable enough with most days having 3-5 bets advised. These are at a significant range of odds going well into double figures on occasion, something that is not commonplace with football betting. The average odds come out at a quite impressive 3.77.
In terms of the experience, Tipstrr are a massive platform and as such, the way Football Hawk operates is very smooth. Selections are issued directly to subscribers via email, as well as being made available through the Tipstrr app (which is available on iOS and Android). There is also a member’s area on the website which you can log into. Selections are typically issued the evening before a game, however they can also be sent out in the AM as well.
Now, one thing that I do want to address about Football Hawk is something that always comes up with Tipstrr products and that is the staking plan that is in place. Bets are advised to be backed at anywhere from 2/10 to 10/10.
This can be seen as either staking 2-10 points on bets, or 0.2 to 1 point. Tipstrr proof Football Hawk to £25 stakes, with £25 being a maximum 10/10 stake and realistically, this is probably the best way of gathering an approximation of what to expect. Especially since 213 of the 275 bets advised through Football Hawk are the full 10/10 stake.
Finally, I want to talk about the strike rate for the service. I can genuinely say that I wasn’t sure what to expect from Football Hawk, but I can say that I was very pleasantly surprised to see a strike rate of 44.25% according to Tipstrr’s proofing. This is a respectable number and is a pretty genuine reflection of the few months that the service has been proofed on the platform. When this is combined with the average odds, I think that it becomes quite apparent that there is strong potential for profit to be had.
How Does Football Hawk Work?
There is a surprising that is said about how Football Hawk works, which makes for a pleasant change. Tipstrr don’t tend to force their tipsters to say a lot which can be frustrating, however there are mitigating factors that I will get to. In the case of this service, it is based around looking at the last six games that teams have played with a view to identifying trends and patterns.
Other factors are also considered such as recent meetings between the two teams and injury news. All of this means that Football Hawk has one of the more sensible approaches I have seen.
On top of that, there is also the fact that Tipstrr provide one of the most comprehensive breakdowns of their tipsters that I have ever seen. Every aspect of Football Hawk is laid bare and you can quickly look over these statistics in order to get a very good idea of what you are getting yourself into.
Typically speaking, this would be the aforementioned “mitigating circumstance”, however in the case of Football Hawk, I think that it brings together a package where you can very clearly see what to expect from the service and make an informed decision about it.
What is the Initial Investment?
There are a host of options that are available if you want to subscribe to Football Hawk. They look like this:
- Weekly Subscription – £10
- Monthly Subscription – £19
- Quarterly Subscription – £45
- 6 Monthly Subscription – £85
- Annual Subscription – £159
Now, it is worth noting that Tipstrr don’t offer any kind of money back guarantee for Football Hawk. Given the range of options that are available and the costs involved though, I don’t see this as necessarily being a deal breaker.
What is the Rate of Return?
The numbers quoted by Tipstrr demonstrate an overall profit of £1,212.21 in the 3 months that the service has been live, to £25 stakes. This means an overall points profit for this period of 48.5 points.
To put the monthly profits of £419.27 into context, it also means 16.16 points per month on average. When these numbers are converted, they don’t necessarily sound quite as impressive, however they are still respectable in my opinion. Finally, and potentially providing the best context for the results of Football Hawk, there is the ROI. This stands at 16.6%.
Conclusion on Football Hawk
There are a lot of reasons to like a tipster service, but, to pick up an earlier thread, value is something that isn’t always discussed. When I first started out in the betting world a number of years ago, I was staggered by how much things cost. If you’ve only got a small betting bank, then paying £30-£45 per month is simply out of the question. You simply end up spending your profits on maintaining a subscription and honestly, it is incredibly frustrating.
This is where something like Football Hawk really comes into its own. At £19 per month, you are looking at giving up a couple of pints a week in order to pay for your subscription. For that, even to £5 stakes, you would be bringing home a profit of some £60 per month. More importantly, it lets you get a feel for what is involved with following a professional tipster. There aren’t many services that are priced in such a way that you can achieve this.
Now, I will admit that the profitability of Football Hawk is probably best described as modest. In this last month I have looked at a proofed product that has generated hundreds of points on some months, but that isn’t necessarily sustainable or for everybody.
And this brings me right back around to value. Sure, you don’t get a huge amount of profit from Football Hawk, but you also don’t pay a lot for it either. And more than that, I think that there is something that you get from it which is more than just a bit of beer money. You get experience.
With that in mind, I don’t really doubt that there is value to be had with Football Hawk. Will it continued to produce 15 points per month, like clockwork? Probably not. Tipsters rarely do. But when you look at the approach behind the service (which appears to be eminently sensible), the statistics that Tipstrr provide, there is a lot of potential for some consistency. And to loop back to that idea of starting out on your betting experience, consistency is a very important thing.
So, do I recommend Football Hawk? This all depends on were you are in your betting career. If you are starting out and looking for a reasonably inexpensive footballing tipster service, then I know for a fact that you can do a damn sight worse than this.
There is should be a little profit to be made here. Now, whilst profit is ultimately the bottom line, I also acknowledge that some people may find that the service is lacking a little compared to the wider market. Honestly, I think this is a pretty strong option, however I do acknowledge that it will not suit everybody.
