One Bet One Win is a new to market horse racing tipster service that is operated by William Roberts. He claims that his system is able to produce consistent and incredibly profitable winning bets.
Introduction to One Bet One Win
Whilst there are definitely a lot of different reasons as to why a tipster service might catch my eye, one of the main ones is a name. Sometimes these names clearly make a statement. Something along the lines of “John’s Million Pound Jackpot Betting System. Other times, the names hint at being something more. I have even had a system gain my attention just by having an amusing name. Then there are the enigmas. Those outliers whose name doesn’t really tell you anything, yet still bring you in for a closer look at what is actually on offer.
Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to One Bet One Win. A tipster service with a name that does absolutely nothing to sell you on what you are getting into. I mean, it really is an appealing sounding concept, but I couldn’t tell you why. So, good job on that for William Roberts I guess. But what really stands out to me is that when you actually arrive at the landing page for the service, you are told that there is a huge amount of money to be made. Which is of course the single most important thing.
All of this is seemingly backed up by a strong narrative marketing approach in which William Roberts tells us all about why he is well positioned to deliver on the profits that are claimed for One Bet One Win. It is, at least somewhat, compelling. Unfortunately, there are also gaps in all of this. Especially in the way of tangible evidence. Something that in my eyes, is incredibly important to demonstrating the worth of a tipster service. Probably not surprisingly, I do have some questions about this, so, let’s get into it.
What Does One Bet One Win Offer?
William Roberts is quite adamant that One Bet One Win is something that you view as simplistically as possible. In actual fact, he breaks down the entire process of following his advice into 3 simple steps. Receive Mail, Place Bets, and Make Money. That is the dream right? And because we are told that this is all that is involved, those are reasonable standards to hold the service to. Right? So, let’s use that as a jumping off point.
So, in keeping with the marketing, let’s start by addressing the emails that are sent out. William Roberts describes these as “a message from my team which will contain the winning bets for that very day”. The reality is that what you are actually getting here is an incredibly bare bones email in my opinion. You get enough to know what you are betting on and that is about it. Far from ideal.
As is implied by this statement, the selections that you receive from One Bet One Win are sent out on the morning of racing. Sometimes quite late in the day. Unfortunately, this can drastically affect your ability to actually get bets placed. Something that is in no small part informed by the fact that a big part of William Roberts’s advice is to simply place them with “your local bookmaker”.
Personally, if I were going to follow One Bet One Win, I would definitely be taking advantage of an odds comparison site. In the face of a lack of real information with selections, this is something that will help you to maximise your returns. Something that I do believe you will want to do, because I rather question the results that William Roberts suggests are feasible. As such, maximising every win is important.
Now, let’s talk about the bets themselves. This is a horse racing tipster service which means that the markets open to you are somewhat limited anyway. However, as the name suggests, One Bet One Win is mostly concerned with betting on backing horses to win. And when you listen to how William Roberts talks about his approach, you would expect this to be the case really. After all, if everything he says is correct, he shouldn’t be getting bets wrong often.
In terms of the kind of odds you will be backing, well, that will ultimately depend on whether or not you shop around. However, I think that it is fair to say that One Bet One Win generally favours rather middling odds with a bias towards the lower end of this spectrum. An approach that doesn’t strike me as coincidence.
As a final little aside, it is worth highlighting that this is a relatively low volume tipster service. William Roberts doesn’t seem to really bet more than a couple of times a day, and even that appears to be a rarity. So at the very least, you shouldn’t be staking too much if you are following One Bet One Win.
This especially applies when you combine that low volume betting approach with the theoretically low stakes One Bet One Win involves. William Roberts personally seems to be staking £100 per bet (a point which becomes very salient a little later), but ultimately, you are dealing with a simple level staking affair of just 1 point per bet.
There is however no insight into what kind of betting bank you should be looking at for this. Personally, I would probably want to have about 100 points to play with, however, this is only speculative on my behalf. William Roberts doesn’t actually give you much advice on this element of One Bet One Win.
This only really leaves one thing left to discuss at this juncture, and that is the strike rate. Or perhaps more specifically, the lack thereof. Don’t get me wrong, there insinuations made. Plenty of them in fact. For example, William Roberts says that his “bets are so reliable you can use them to make any amount of money that you like”, and that he is able to “consistently profit from horse race betting”, but this doesn’t actually tell us anything. Which is very noteworthy.
How Does One Bet One Win Work?
Now we come to the part of One Bet One Win that is arguably the most intriguing. How the service works, or at least, how William Roberts claims that it works. So, there are two parts to it all in my opinion. First and foremost, we are told that his background is in “computer science and mathematics and i was previously employed by one the big banks in the financial district”. This is important, because he says that he could “see that there was a chance win more than i lose by using advance mathematics and computer programming”.
On top of this, we are also told that William Roberts is able to get “good information long before anyone else, even the owners!”. Something that he attributes to the fact that he has been involved with the horses racing industry since being a young boy. Furthermore, he has also enjoyed a “highly successful career as a jockey in racing” during which time he “met a lot of people along the way”.
So, with his background in computer science and mathematics, as well as a highly successful career as a jockey, the insinuation is clear. Or at least, it should be. You see, not just is William Roberts getting inside information, but he is able to apply it better than anybody else with that background in mathematics. Except… The two things aren’t ever really remedied or mentioned as working in tandem. It feels more like somebody has written two scenarios and then not known which to pick.
What is of note is the fact that there isn’t actually any real evidence backing any of this up. There isn’t really any proofing for One Bet One Win at all. The closest that we come to this is 5 winning betting slips and a very questionable screenshot of a bookies account. Which of course means that what you are really doing with all of this is simply taking William Roberts’s word on it.
What is the Initial Investment?
In theory, if you want to sign up to One Bet One Win, there is only one option available. This is a one time cost of £39.99 (plus VAT) which seemingly gives you access to tips for life. Now, the reason I say that there is only theoretically one option is that every time you are taken to the payment page, William Roberts then offers it to you with a 25% discount. This brings the cost down to £29,99 (plus VAT).
It is worth noting the fact that One Bet One Win does come with a full 30 day money back, should you find that the service isn’t for you. This is backed up by the fact that William Roberts is selling the service through Clickbank, so in theory, you shouldn’t have any trouble claiming this if you wanted to.
What is the Rate of Return?
Now we come to the part of One Bet One Win that really caught my eye, that profit potential. William Roberts says that in one year of betting he made £106,000. Even using the £100 stakes that he favours, this is still a profit well in excess of 1,000 points per year. For some context on just how high this number is, a decent performing tipster service might see 320 points in a year.
Elsewhere in the sales material, we are given a number of additional income claims that are all roughly in line with this number. These include both William Roberts himself and a testimonial making reference to £2,000 per week. Honestly though, I am incredibly sceptical of all of this, especially in light of the that lack of evidence.
Conclusion for One Bet One Win
As appealing as the thought of making 1,060 points of profit is, the more important question when looking at something like One Bet One Win is whether or not the results are feasible. Because of course we’d all like to see that kind of profit. So, plenty of tipsters will make these kinds of claims. Actually getting there though is a completely different kettle of fish.
Now, before I get into the why’s, I want to be really up front about the fact that I wouldn’t really look to recommend One Bet One Win. The whole thing seems immensely questionable in my book. This applies to a lot of things, but I want to start with something that I can’t quite wrap my head around, and that is the claims of how the service works.
It goes without saying that people can have multiple careers. So, it isn’t impossible that William Roberts was both a top jockey and worked at one of the major financial institutions in the UK. But just because something is plausible, that doesn’t mean that it is necessarily true. I always work on a “balance of probability” with stuff like this, and I don’t think it’s likely. Especially because of that absurd claim that he is getting information before owners.
Of course, if you didn’t know just how many questionable services there are on the market, you might look at that and be impressed. It certainly sounds impressive. But of course, there is nothing to back it up really. Like I said earlier, William Roberts is seemingly getting this top notch inside information, and applying his mathematical background. But how? There is no explanation.
And what about the last year of results? William Roberts clearly has them. He reports on his profit. And yet, the most we can be shown for all of this is 4 betting slips from the same week in May in which he happened to have made his £2,000 profit. It is all a little bit suspect in my mind. All of which is emphasised by the fact that what I have seen of One Bet One Win suggests that the results are going to be well out of whack with those claimed.
Honestly, I just can’t see a reason that I would want to recommend One Bet One Win. The whole thing certainly has appeal, and if you really want to chuck £30 at it to see if you can have some luck with it, then all power to you. But really, this is a service fraught with risk that not even a low price point can encourage me to overlook.
