Paddy Bets is a new to market horse racing tipster service which is operated by one Conor D. He claims that his selections can make punters huge amounts of money with very little risk.
Introduction to Paddy Bets
There is a saying as old as time, that if something sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. Now, this isn’t always the case. Some of the best betting systems that I’ve looked at seem to promise a lot but they genuinely deliver. But I do think that it’s pretty fair to say that this is a reasonable starting point when you’re looking at tipsters. If it sounds too good to be true, there is probably something going on in the background that doesn’t paint an entirely accurate picture.
All of this is very important to keep in mind with today’s tipster service, Paddy Bets. Because this is an absolute doozy in terms of seeming to be too good to be true. This has it all with one statement in particular standing out to me. Conor D says that “Joining This Site is Your Chance to Win Big Money Without Doing Any Hard Work”. And that’s the dream right? And if you don’t believe him on this statement, there are pictures of big houses, a Ferrari, and a tropical beach. Just to really convince you that all of this is possible.
And the fact that it is achieved seemingly without risk too… Well, sign me up! Right? Well, not entirely. The thing is, whilst there are a huge number of extraordinary claims made by Conor D about what you can expect from Paddy Bets (and rest assured, I will be exploring these), the reality seems to be very different. In actual fact, I would say that whilst the claims are definitely impressive, that is all that they can be viewed as. Claims. And ones with little credibility at that. So, let’s get into it.
What Does Paddy Bets Offer?
I have tried to open this review a few times, but I haven’t quite known where to start. So, I am going to use Conor D’s own words in terms of his offering. He says, “Receiving My Tips Are Your Chance to Completely Bypass Horse Race Betting’s Frustrating, and Not to Mention Expensive, Trial and Error Stage and Put Yourself Directly on the Fast Track to Success!”.
Of course, it sounds good. Much of the sales material for Paddy Bets sounds good. Especially if you don’t actually question it. But the fact is that Conor D isn’t actually saying there. It’s all just nothing words. What it certainly doesn’t tell you is anything about what you can expect from the service.
Unfortunately, there isn’t a lot to say here. From everything I’ve seen, Paddy Bets is about as near to a typical near daily horse racing tipster service as I’ve seen for a while. Pretty much everything about this just seems to be bang average in the worst possible way. It all feels more like Conor D is just doing as little to rock the boat, and I have my suspicions as to why that is.
Logistically, this is probably as you would except as well. Selections are issued directly via email. Conor D tends to send them these out on the day of racing, however the information is rather minimal. You get everything you need in order to place the bets and that is about it. It really is quite disappointing.
This leads me to talk about the odds. You can probably already tell where I’m going to go with this, but if I were to follow Paddy Bets, I would definitely want to use an odds comparison site. There is enough time before the off to take advantage of this, and whilst it might not bring you close to Conor D’s claimed profit, at the very least, you will be maximising any winnings that you are fortunate enough to encounter.
Because here’s the thing (and this probably won’t come as any real surprise), most of the odds that you can actually get are distinctly average. Almost as if they’ve been selected to be big enough if they do win, but low enough that they actually have a chance of fluking a win. It is all just very middle of the road stuff and I can’t help but feel that it’s intentional.
Fortunately, if you do go having to seek out best odds, at least Paddy Bets doesn’t involve any complicated bets. Everything that I’ve seen has been straight win bets. This doesn’t really come as any surprise from a horse racing tipster service. The fact is that there are limited betting markets available, and I don’t believe that there is necessarily any higher strategy here.
Where there does seem to be some strategy is in terms of the money management. Conor D talks a big game in the sales material for Paddy Bets about how he will help you to understand how to manage your money to maximise your profits etc. All of this sounds great, but the unfortunate fact is that it really isn’t that impressive. It certainly doesn’t warrant the kind of attention that is given.
Ultimately, all of this is behind a pay wall, so I won’t go into too much detail about what Conor D’s approach to money management involves. What I will say however is that the principles really are pretty basic. And if I’m really honest, much of what he has to say is the kind of thing you can probably find elsewhere without the same expense.
Finally, I want to talk about the strike rate for Paddy Bets. Which is a key part of the sales material really. Because Conor D makes a very big deal out of the fact that his bets supposedly win 8 out of 10 times. This means that there is a claimed strike rate of 80%, an incredible number. Unfortunately, this is of course entirely unsubstantiated with no proofing or evidence backing this up.
How Does Paddy Bets Work?
There are a lot of different claims made in terms of how Paddy Bets is supposed to “work”. These are varied and of questionable merit. The first thing that I’ve already touched upon is the “money management”. But honestly, as I’ve already said, I don’t put that much truck in it. For my money, it’s incredibly basic and just doesn’t have enough merit to be considered a “part” of the service.
The part that I think Conor D leans on more than anything else though is his claim that he comes from a long line of bookmakers, with family still involved in the industry. He says that he is able to think like a bookie, and this somehow affords him more understanding of racing that he is able to pass on through Paddy Bets. Unfortunately, this isn’t really expanded on, so as with much of this, it is a bit of a nothing statement.
Importantly, it isn’t actually telling you anything about what the selection process actually entails. It all just feels distinctly vague and honestly, that doesn’t strike me as a coincidence. What is concerning however is that there isn’t really any evidence backing anything up at all. As such, not only does Conor D not really give you any insight, but you are simply taking his word for everything related to Paddy Bets, which is highly disconcerting.
The fact of the matter is that the sales material for Paddy Bets takes the rather unique position of trying to convince that it’s all above board, that other tipsters are questionable, and going it alone isn’t really doable. Conor D also spends a lot of time trying to argue that horse racing betting is a superior method of investment to other opportunities. Now, I know a good few people who make money off horse racing, but here it is simply presented as being easy money.
What is the Initial Investment?
If you want to sign up to Paddy Bets, there is just one option available. This is a one time cost for which you get access to Conor D’s selections for… Well, this isn’t actually specified. All that we’re told is that there is a cost of £29.99 (plus VAT) and that it is a limited time offering. But as with much of the content surrounding this, actual information is minimal.
Whilst we’re talking about minimal, something that really stands out to me is the fact that Conor D point blank fails to mention the fact that there is in fact a full 60 day money back guarantee in place for Paddy Bets. This is backed up by the fact that access to the service is sold through Clickbank. This means that in theory, you shouldn’t have problems claiming a refund if you find this isn’t for you.
What is the Rate of Return?
The income potential for Paddy Bets is incredibly vast. Conor D himself claims that he has managed to produce an incredible 7 figure income through his horse racing betting. That means that he has seemingly produced more than a million pounds. That is a hell of a lot of money and make no mistake.
In terms of how much you can expect from Paddy Bets, well, there isn’t really much in the way of specifics. About the only direct claim that stands out to me is Conor D claiming that he has “members winning $5,000 … $10,000 … $20,000 … and much more EACH MONTH using my tips!”. A substantial claim that is of course, not at all surprisingly, entirely unsubstantiated. Furthermore, it is entirely without context (and as you may note, oddly in dollars).
Conclusion for Paddy Bets
There is no denying the fact that to look at Paddy Bets unquestioningly, this is an absolute winner. I mean, 80% strike rate, potentially as much as £14,000 per month being made. And all of that is for the incredibly low cost of just £30. If all of that came with any sort of guarantee, I’d be asking the simple question. Why wouldn’t you want to sign up?
Of course, there is an incredibly short answer to all of this. Namely, that there isn’t any sort of guarantee (well, sort of, but I’ll pick this point up shortly), and simply taking any tipster who is selling their service unquestioningly is just a terrible idea really. Because they are categorically the only people who really benefit from you signing up.
Now, tipsters will typically get around this by demonstrating their worth in some fashion. They might, for example, talk at length about what their approach to betting is and the benefit of this. Usually, this is a bit more than what Conor D has done here. What he is effectively doing is simply saying that because his family are bookies, that somehow makes him well equipped to beat them. A notion that, frankly, I find questionable.
Another way that you might see a tipster prove their service is… Well, through proofing. For my money, one of the single best ways that a tipster can demonstrate their ability is through comprehensive results that show you not just the profit, but how it is achieved. Of course, that is entirely absent from Paddy Bets as well. In fact, there isn’t even basic evidence provided.
So, as mentioned, there isn’t really a lot of reason to believe any of the sales material for Paddy Bets. And I’ll be frank, everything that I’ve seen so far suggests that this is a sensible course of action. Combine that with things like the fact that Conor D so conveniently fails to mention the money back guarantee. Ironic given that it is really about the only guarantee that I can see here.
Meanwhile, that focus of the sales material remains on suggesting quick and easy profit. Something that is demonstrably not something that happens with horse racing betting. So, it shouldn’t really come as any surprise to learn that I really wouldn’t look to recommend Paddy Bets. There are undoubtedly better and more genuine tipster services out there. Will they make you a millionaire like Conor D? Absolutely not. But honestly, neither will this.
