Football Rank is a new sports betting tipster service which is offered by Sam Green. He claims that his service will allow subscribers to generate massive amounts of income in a short space of time.
Introduction to Football Rank
I have looked at a lot of football tipster services over the last few months. Between the World Cup and the new season starting here in the UK, it is honestly quite exhausting keeping up with everything. Especially when you factor in that so much of it appears to simply be the same regurgitated thing over and over and over.
All of this had a bit of a welcome break however in the form of Football Rank. Don’t get me wrong, Sam Green isn’t out to revolutionise the sports betting world here and anybody who is looking for something genuinely new will be disappointed.
There is however a slightly different angle involved and it is one that I have seen used before by other tipsters with some very strong results.
Of course, previous success doesn’t guarantee future success, and there is still quite a lot that I think that Football Rank has to answer for. With that in mind, let’s dive in and see if this is any good or not.
What Does Football Rank Offer?
At its core, Football Rank is a near daily tipster service. It isn’t even anything that is particularly different in terms of how things are operated. This doesn’t mean that it isn’t interesting however.
One of the main things that stands out is that Sam Green says that there is no off season and that Football Rank is “Active All year Round”. Logistically, things are rather what you would expect. Each morning, Sam Green says that he will issue his emails out to subscribers, typically between 6am and 11am. You are then left to place bets.
One of the things that does make Football Rank somewhat unique in the current tipster climate is the approach of having his own ranking system. This isn’t in the sense of how selections are made, rather how confident Sam Green is in the given staking plan.
When you receive your email you will receive bets ranked from best to worst. These also tell you how to stake (more on that shortly). There doesn’t appear to be any days where you will have more than 5 bets and the odds are rather varied here.
So the staking side of Football Rank. This is where the rankings really come into play. Bets are ranked anywhere from 5 stars all the way to just 1 star. As you can imagine, with Sam Green issuing bets at least 6 days of the week, this can very quickly start to add up.
This is something of a problem with Football Rank however I want to discuss this in more detail below.
Rather interestingly, there is no discussion of any strike rate from Sam Green. This is a rather frustrating thing as services like Football Rank are made and lost off the back of this in my opinion. After all, you can very easily be staking 15 points in a single day.
All it takes is a few losers there and you are well into the realm of decimating a betting bank. It should come as no surprise that there is no proofing included with Football Rank either.
How Does Football Rank Work?
We aren’t ever really told how Football Rank works, which is another big concern for the system. We are told by Sam Green that he only ever had 3 interests. Playing World of Warcraft, browsing x rated video sites and following betting systems.
With a claimed degree in philosophy as well as one in statistics and applied probabilities, Sam Green says that he turned his attention to betting. Following a transition period in which he started to take betting more seriously, he quit his job and went full time.
The clear implication here is that the degree in statistics and applied probabilities allows Sam Green some insight into betting that the average punter just doesn’t have. Unfortunately, I don’t buy into this and can’t help but feel like this aspect of Football Rank in particular is little more than an exercise in narrative marketing.
What is the Initial Investment?
There is only one option if you want to subscribe to Football Rank. This is a one time cost of £30 (plus VAT) which buys you access to selections for a full 12 month season. Sam Green has chosen to sell Football Rank through Clickbank which means that there is a money back guarantee in place should you find that it isn’t for you.
It is also worth mentioning that for what little credit it provides to the vendor of Football Rank, this is well advertised in the marketing.
What is the Rate of Return?
According to the headlines from Sam Green, Football Rank was able to turn a £100 betting bank into £12,082.51 in 12 months. Other numbers which ae thrown about in the sales material are £250 per day (which means well in excess of £90,000 per year).
In the testimonials for the service, a supposed customer claims 105 points of profit in 3 months. The genuine truth of the matter is that there is very little about the numbers that seem to add up.
Conclusion on Football Rank
There is quite a lot to say about Football Rank, although how much of it is good isn’t something I would be optimistic about. None the less, in the name of trying to provide some balance, I will talk about these positives (well, positive) first.
The set up of the service is at the very least interesting. It would be very easy for Football Rank to simply be a cookie cutter shape that fits the bill of almost every other tipster service that seems to come out of Clickbank these days.
The ranking system that is in place is an interesting concept and it is something that I have seen done well with other tipsters before now. The problem that Football Rank has more than anything else truthfully comes from the fact that the service seems to have been borne of a marketer rather than a real tipster.
The vendor for Football Rank has had 5 different betting services, 3 this year alone. That does not suggest to me that any of the service is genuine.
Things like this also go a long way to explaining other criticisms with Football Rank. There is no proofing for the service because it is entirely possible that there are no past results to go off.
The numbers don’t add up in terms of the income potential because they aren’t based off real bets. Instead, they are designed to sound appealing and ultimately sell a product.
Being completely honest, I could be wrong here. Sam Green could be real, he could genuinely of found financial freedom through betting, but the evidence counts more against it than for.
The only thing that Football Rank offers up which is in any way tangible is a very questionable screenshot of a betting bank. With this in mind, I wouldn’t be inclined to invest in the service.
I can see the appeal in terms of cost, but paying for a naff service will always cost you more down the line.
