Goal Glory is a new to market sports betting tipster service from Ash Mistry. He claims that his football tips can generate a very substantial profit.
Introduction to Goal Glory
When it comes to football betting there are a lot on the market. As a result of that, it can be very difficult for a tipster to make their service stand out from the competition. But it’s even more difficult to be a punter. Because wherever there are a lot of tipster services, it is an inevitability that there will be… Just so much crap… Which of course begs the question, what is the best option for you?
Well, according to Ash Mistry, his service, Goal Glory is the answer to that. Because, if you believe him, he’s made a fair old amount of money through betting on football. In and of itself, that isn’t necessarily all that impressive. There are plenty of people out there who manage to make a decent income through betting. What really makes this stand out is the claim that you can achieve this by placing just a few bets each weekend and ultimately, staking very little.
It all sounds pretty good, right? Dare I even say a touch too good to be true. Because as great as Ash Mistry is at selling his service, there is a lot that I don’t believe stands up to scrutiny. Ultimately, I feel like Goal Glory ends up raising as many questions as it answers. Something that is a long way from ideal when it comes to a tipster service.
What Does Goal Glory Offer?
There are some elements of Goal Glory that stand out to me as interesting. Don’t get me wrong, Ash Mistry isn’t rewriting sports betting here, but there are definitely some approaches and angles that I’ll conceded I haven’t necessarily really considered before. And that is something that in a very superficial way is quite exciting.
Of course, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the service translates to a viable option. And it is these elements that really require some scrutiny. Because as much has Goal Glory is built on a somewhat interesting idea. It is a long way from the “complete product “that I would like to see. In actual fact, I’d go as far as to say that there’s quite a lot missing.
This starts when you look at the logistical elements of Goal Glory. Now I want to start by acknowledging the fact that at the end of the day, Ash Mistry is an independent tipster (at least, so we’re told). As such, there are things that are potentially forgivable. But if I’m honest, there are a lot of concerning elements to it all as well.
First things first, the tips are sent out, as you would expect, directly via email. All that you have to do is place the bets. Where are you placing them? Who knows. Because this is only a small part of a litany of issues that I have with Goal Glory. All that you receive are the details of the bets and that really is about it.
Given the fact that Goal Glory is concerned with betting on accumulators, I don’t really think that’s good enough. It shouldn’t take a lot for a professional tipster to identify that there is a point where there isn’t value in backing a long shot. And that is very important because the difference in returns can be very substantial. We’re talking potentially, more than 20%.
Realistically, if I were going to be following Goal Glory, I’d definitely be looking to use an odds comparison website. The fact of the matter is that the nature of Ash Mistry’s approach to betting means that you are very unlikely to win often (despite his claims, but I’ll come to that a little later on). As such, you really do need every win to count as much as you can.
In terms of the bets, as I mentioned earlier, Goal Glory is mostly concerned with betting on accumulators. This isn’t anything new in football betting, but Ash Mistry claims to have a different angle. Because what he does is bet on games based solely around goal markets (hence the name).
Specifically, you will see accas for Both Teams to Score, Over/Under 2.5 goals, and a bet that is for Over/Under 1.5 goals. The first two are far from modest options with Ash Mistry identifying anywhere up to 6 bets. But the Over/Under 1.5 goals accas is a monster. This typically involves bringing together the largest volume of bets (often over 10 selections) with a view to cashing in big time.
Naturally, the odds fluctuate a hell of a lot with accas, but if you believe the very limited evidence that is provided for Goal Glory, you’ll typically end up backing at around 10.0 with the exception of those Over/Under 1.5 Goal accas.
Now, one of the things that is really quite interesting to me is that Ash Mistry only recommends three bets each weekend (these being the aforementioned types). Quite why this is isn’t something that is ever explored, but at the very least it makes for a low volume service which should be pretty manageable.
Finally, we can talk numbers. And I want to jump straight into the strike rate. Ash Mistry claims that over 4 weeks, Goal Glory has a win rate of 58.3%. That is a remarkable number indeed. Almost, one might say, suspiciously so. I can say with the utmost confidence that it is a long way from my experience with other acca services and systems.
In terms of staking, Goal Glory utilises a very simple plan. Each bet is advised to be backed to 1 point. Ash Mistry personally says that he stakes £20 per point which, given the volume, isn’t too bad. He also recommends setting aside a betting bank of just 15 points. That sounds pretty reasonable, but that’s only 5 weeks worth of bets.
How Does Goal Glory Work?
In terms of how Goal Glory works, there are two different elements at play. Firstly, there are the types of bets. Now, using accas isn’t anything new. Especially in football betting where there are generally much lower odds available on individual bets. What I don’t understand though is why goals markets? We are told that they’re somehow more predictable in unpredictable games, but that statement is just oxymoronic.
This isn’t something that is really adequately explained. As are a large number of elements pertaining to Goal Glory. Ash Mistry provides no information about his choice of bets, why the accas are brought together the way that they are, or… Well, pretty much anything if I’m completely honest. And that is both frustrating and very disappointing.
The fact of the matter is that with something like this, the selection process is vital. You can’t just arbitrarily pick out 10, 6, or even 4 selections from nowhere. There really has to be a strategy behind it, and from everything I’ve seen, Goal Glory has neither. Which is a very real problem. Especially in light of the lack of evidence and information.
It isn’t even like there is any proofing provided, outside of a few very convenient examples. But when you consider that Ash Mistry says that he is opening this up for more members, there is an implication that he’s been running Goal Glory for some time. And with that comes the expectation that there should be some results to look back at. So why aren’t they provided?
What is the Initial Investment?
If you want to sign up for Goal Glory, there is only one package available. Rather uniquely though, there are two different prices. If you choose to sign up to a mailing list, then Ash Mistry only asks £44.89 (plus VAT) for access. If you don’t want to give up your email address (which by the way, there is nothing simply stopping you form making one up), the cost is £67 (again, plus VAT).
Something that is very interesting about all this is the fact that Goal Glory is being sold through Clickbank. For those who aren’t familiar with the platform, they typically offer a money back guarantee on all of their products, and Ash Mistry’s offering is no different with a 30 day refund period. This is however something that Ash Mistry fails to mention entirely in the sales material.
What is the Rate of Return?
We are told that since 12th of September (so a bit under a month ago at the time of writing) Goal Glory has produced a profit of £2,901.43. What is really interesting about this number is that we also know how much Ash Mistry has staked in order to receive this return. And it makes for some very interesting reading.
Firstly, if this number is to be believed, it would put Goal Glory on a profit of 145 points. In less than a month. For some context on this, if a tipster produced 290 points in a year, I’d say that they’d well. So for Ash Mistry to say that he’s made half that in a month, all whilst suggesting these results are consistent is one hell of a claim. Especially in the face of that ever present lack of evidence.
Conclusion for Goal Glory
I always try to look for some positives in any service that I look at. Sometimes though, you end up at something that is just entirely devoid of those pros. And Goal Glory falls into that category for me. And this isn’t an unfounded opinion. There are a lot of problems with all of this. Now, some of the things I’ve already touched upon, but the problems here run so much deeper than that.
But even before I come to some of these much deeper problems with Goal Glory, let’s look at even that superficial layer. Ash Mistry seems to go out of his way to avoid telling you… Well, anything of substance. His whole sales pitch seems to simply boil down to the fact that accumulators are good? A statement that is mired in controversy really. Because there are pros and cons to the approach.
Outside of that, we are told that there is a big focus on goals markets, for reasons that are… Well, let’s be honest. They’re questionable. Sure, the season has got off to a bit of a rocky start, but trying to say that this is a basis for a system for the whole season. I’m not really sold if I’m honest.
Furthermore, that doesn’t alter the fact that Ash Mistry still doesn’t tell you what his selection process entails. Even if I did think that there were any rationale behind this, you still have to have a decent process for finding selections. Goals markets aren’t even the kind of thing where you can just get a feel for results.
What I mean by this is this. In the next bout of Premier League games, you’d expect Chelsea to beat Southampton. You’d expect Leicester to beat Arsenal. You’d expect Manchester United to beat Newcastle (we probably won’t of course. That Tottenham score still stings). But they are clear obvious choices. Goals markets though…? Liverpool and Everton might be a shout, and possibly City and Arsenal. But there aren’t those clear cut choices.
As such, you’re just really taking Ash Mistry’s word for everything that he’s above board and genuine. This is of course the same person who entirely fails to tell people about the 30 day money back guarantee. Something that I’d expect any genuine tipster to at least mention. Because if your tips are actually good, you have no reason to fear people claiming a refund, right?
But all of this just leads up to what is fundamentally the biggest problem with Goal Glory in my book. And that is the fact that I don’t really believe it’s genuine. Firstly, let’s talk about why you receive such a generous discount for signing up to an email list. This could be so that Ash Mistry can track interest in his services. Or it could be that this is operated by a vendor who puts out this kind of product very frequently. Who ultimately aims to make money by selling other people’s tipster services in the future.
Does this sound outlandish? Absolutely, but here’s the thing. It’s not. Because the vendor who is selling Goal Glory through Clickbank is one that is well known to me. And it isn’t because their services have gone on to consistently make subscribers thousands of pounds per month. If anything, their services seem to quietly close down once that money back guarantee period has elapsed.
Now I’ll concede. I could be wrong about Goal Glory. But I don’t think that I am. Now that is only the nail in the coffin. I really wouldn’t have looked to recommend Ash Mistry’s service even if all of that wasn’t the case. Because it just looks to be a bad service. And it is with that in mind, that I can say Goal Glory really isn’t worth your time and money. The fact is that it fails on multiple fronts, and it doesn’t even have the grace to be that cheap either. This really is one to avoid.
