Open Bet Win is a new to market horse racing tipster service. It is being operated by one Blake Sibbitt in conjunction with his old friend David Bellion. Supposedly, it has proven to be very profitable to date.
Introduction to Open Bet Win
I have never tried to hide the fact that there is a lot of rubbish out there in the tipster industry. For every service that is actually provided by somebody genuine, there are probably the same number that are made by opportunists who are looking to make a quick and easy extra bout of income.
There are certain hallmarks that come with these kinds of products. Long winded narrative based sales pitches. A focus on how betting is quick and easy money. The idea that there is very little risk and a fortune to be made! And most importantly, there is actually very little about horse racing (or football, usually).
All of this leads me to todays subject which ticks off pretty much all of those boxes. As such, I can say coming into Open Bet Win that I don’t expect that it will perform particularly well. None the less, if Blake Sibbitt and David Bellion can deliver even a small amount of what they claim, it will still prove successful. So, let’s jump in and see how it does.
What Does Open Bet Win Offer?
If you were to look at the sales material for Open Bet Win with a view to understanding what you are getting yourself into. I can say here and now that you would be incredibly disappointed. This is because honestly, Blake Sibbitt has very little to say about what it is. All that is said concretely is that it is a tipster service, and that you are backing horses.
Fortunately, I am able to go into more detail than the copy. So, what exactly are you getting? The short answer to this is about as basic a daily tipster service as you can get. There is absolutely nothing that I have seen from Open Bet Win that suggests that this is any different to a number of tipster services that are in a similar vein.
This means that you will receive selection on a near daily basis (there will be the occasional no bet day, however there is no real notification of this). These are sent out directly to Open Bet Win subscribers via email with Blake Sibbitt and David Bellion providing just about the bare bones of what you need in order to get a bet placed.
Unfortunately, this means that there is very little information on where you should be aiming to place the bets, and as such, something like Oddschecker will serve you well. Given a number of concerning elements that surround Open Bet Win, at the very least you can know that you are personally getting the best possible odds available to you. Which is one good thing.
Probably not surprisingly, the bets that are advised for Open Bet Win are all incredibly simple and follow a quite distinctive pattern (at least in my eyes), but I’ll get to this later. All of the bets are straight win bets and these are at a range of odds, however you are mostly looking at very middling examples (think from 3/1 going as high as 7/1).
In keeping with this uncontroversial approach to betting the volume of bets also remains somewhat suspiciously stable in my opinion. Most days will have just 2 or 3 bets advised. Occasionally Blake Sibbitt and David Bellion may advise more, and as mentioned, there are also the occasional no bet days as well.
Now we start to come to another of those elements of Open Bet Win that is very apparent in the lack of information. This is the staking plan that is in place. Blake Sibbitt makes mention of the fact that when he started following David Bellion’s betting advice, he was seemingly betting just £10 stakes. Unfortunately, this isn’t ever compounded on.
Personally, if I were following Open Bet Win then I would be looking at level stakes of 1 point. I would also want a pretty substantial betting bank of 100 points as a minimum. But naturally all of this is conjecture on my behalf and highlights a bigger problem. All of Blake Sibbitt’s claims of profit are in pounds and pence. With no staking plan, this of course lacks any context.
Now, one thing that we are told about (rather conveniently, from a sales perspective) is the strike rate. Blake Sibbitt claims that David Bellion’s strike rate comes in at “more than 70%”. That is a massive number for a win based tipster service that seems almost purposefully vague.
Unfortunately, and as you may well see coming by this point, there is nothing to really back this claim up. Blake Sibbitt and David Bellion provide no real evidence at all of Open Bet Win’s results including no proofing. As such, I am not inclined to put any real faith into this claimed result.
How Does Open Bet Win Work?
Now we come on to how Open Bet Win works. Way back at the start of this, I talked a lot about having a narrative structure to the sales material and that is important to keep in mind here. Because the truth of the matter is that Blake Sibbitt and David Bellion don’t ever actually tell us what the selection process entails.
We are told that the pair used to be best friends and after meeting up at a birthday party, Blake Sibbitt was invited to receive David Bellion’s selections. This of course made him a fortune and so now they are making their tips available online.
So, what does all of this have to do with anything (something I found myself asking a lot as I read the sales material)? We are told that David Bellion graduated university with a first in mathematics having written a dissertation on complex algorithms.
Since leaving uni, Blake Sibbitt says that he (meaning David Bellion) “created a formula that could calculate the outcomes of horse races based on analysis of past results”. And that is about your lot in terms of how Open Bet Win supposedly works. There is a clear attempt here to sell the idea that David Bellion is well positioned to select winners, but in the face of no evidence backing anything up I’m just not convinced.
What is the Initial Investment?
There is just one option if you want to sign up to Open Bet Win and that is a simple one time cost of £29.99 (plus VAT). For this, Blake Sibbitt and David Bellion say that you will receive a full 12 month subscription. Personally, I have some doubts about this length of subscription for a number of reasons that I will pick up later.
It is worth noting that when you sign up for Open Bet Win, you do get a full 60 day money back guarantee. This is backed up by the fact that Blake Sibbitt is selling the service through Clickbank. This is pretty well advertised in the sales material which is one of the few things I can credit it with.
What is the Rate of Return?
Now we come to the main reason that anybody would want to consider Open Bet Win and that is the claimed returns. Blake Sibbitt says that last year, by following David Bellion’s advice, he was able to make an outstanding profit of £129,332.87. This is backed up by “evidence” in the form of a questionable screenshot of a betting bank.
Elsewhere, there is mention of making “more than £10,000 EVERY SINGLE MONTH” and £2,500 per week. Both of these numbers are in line with so called testimonials for the service in which subscribers supposedly earned anywhere from £10,797 a month to £11,226 in a month.
It is worth returning the point I made when discussing the stakes and the fact that there is no real context for these numbers. Because you don’t know how much is being staked per point, this £10,000 per month could be 10 points to £1,000 stakes or 1000 point to £10 stakes.
Conclusion for Open Bet Win
I always like to try and be balanced when I look at the tipster services that I do, but sometimes it can be very difficult to do this. Usually, there are at least some positives that can be taken away, but in the case of Open Bet Win. I’m just drawing a blank when I try to think of what these might be. I guess, at a push, it’s cheap?
On the flip side of that, there are a massive number of things that concern me about the service. For example, there is the fact that there is absolutely no real evidence to back up any of the claims. I am sure that Blake Sibbitt would say that his William Hill account is evidence, but I don’t believe that is real for one second.
There is also the lack of information on how Open Bet Win works. I can’t help but feel that the whole story of David Bellion is just vague enough to sound plausible to bring in people who might not know better. And that for me is what all of this really seems to be about. Targeting those who might not really realise just how bad what Blake Sibbitt is actually offering.
This is evident when you look at how the sales material makes reference to living your life debt free. It is also there in how Blake Sibbitt talks about his life before signing up to Open Bet Win. This is all microwave meals and being stuck living with his parents, and a host of other depressing things. It is all designed to appeal to those who are struggling.
Because, people who are struggling are, not surprisingly, desperate to change their circumstances. And so, when a tipster service tells you that it will win 70% of bets, and that you can make five figures per month, and you are desperate. Well, I will admit that if you were in that position Open Bet Win might sound appealing.
Now, to be fair, I could be wrong about Open Bet Win. There could be very valid reasons why Blake Sibbitt and David Bellion don’t provide proofing, despite claiming that they have been running the service for 2 years. But I’m a bit sceptical about this.
Honestly, I could spend a lot of time dancing around the reasons that I don’t really buy into Open Bet Win, but there is one more than anything else. The vendor who is marketing the service is very well known to me. They have put out a massive number of different tipster services and unfortunately, none of them have delivered.
This is based on feedback that I have seen from users of their other services on this website, as well as the fact that (not surprisingly) none of their previous tipster services are actually available nowadays. Why would a tipster take down a genuine service that was profitable and making them money? They wouldn’t.
So, with all of this in mind, I cannot recommend enough avoiding Open Bet Win. There is absolutely nothing that sits right with me and the only long term results that I can see are subscribers losing money.
