Soccer Betting Masters is a sports betting tipster service which has been launched by Frank Belanger and James Dobson. As the name suggests, it is based around football betting.
Introduction to Soccer Betting Masters
In this line of work, it can be surprising what lands on your desk. Sometimes it can be a new product from a keenly fancied tipster. Sometimes it can be something entirely new and out of the blue (usually claiming to make £100,00 per year), and finally, you get something old. In fact in the case of Soccer Betting Masters, this appears to be an incredibly old product, and yet I received an email about it only the other day.
The website is updated with new systems for 2018/2019 and so, why wouldn’t I want to cover it? After all, the way I look at this job sometimes is that if I am being told about a product, others might be. And since I always want people to find the best possible products for themselves, it is my duty to look at everything.
Even things like Soccer Betting Masters which at a glance, aren’t necessarily relevant. With that in mind, let’s jump in, and one more thing, I won’t be calling it soccer. Ever. Get over it America.
What Does Soccer Betting Masters Offer?
So Soccer Betting Masters is apparently a bit of an old beast and the marketing reflects this. There are a lot of words, and despite that, it doesn’t have a whole lot to say. There is a lot of talk about systems but what you are really getting from Frank Belanger and James Dobson is a tipster service.
They say that all that you have to do if you are subscribed to Soccer Betting Masters is open your daily email (or log into a member’s area of the Soccer Betting Masters website), place your bets with a sportsbook (that’s a bookie for the rest of us) and “watch your bankroll grow”. It is worth noting that Frank Belanger and James Dobson do say that their selections will be emailed out 24 hours before each game.
It all sounds incredibly straight forward. As you might guess, you will be predominantly betting on football with Soccer Betting Masters. There isn’t however a preferred league or anything with Frank Belanger and James Dobson claiming that you may be betting on anything from the Champion’s League to Swedish Second Division Football. It is a very mixed bag.
What is interesting however is the bets that you are backing. Naturally, there are a variety of different bet types, but all bets advised by Soccer Betting Masters have odds of at least 2.0. It is worth noting that this is a somewhat high volume service with Frank Belanger and James Dobson claiming that they will produced “over 1,000 opportunities every year!”.
Moving on to the staking plan, Frank Belanger and James Dobson talk a lot about how much they struggled to develop a system which would work with level stakes betting. In spite of this, they apparently ended up getting it right with Soccer Betting Masters because that is the staking plan that is in place. You are advised to stake just 1 point on all bets.
I now want to talk about the strike rate. This is a very important number for me because by and large, Soccer Betting Masters backs pretty structured odds. This means that you have to win often in order to be profitable. Frank Belanger and James Dobson claim that on average, Soccer Betting Masters will produce a strike rate of over 60%.
Unfortunately, there is very little in the way of viable proofing to back this up. As such, I do treat this claim with some suspicious.
How Does Soccer Betting Masters Work?
Frank Belanger claims that he has always been a successful sports bettor. Specifically, he was good at betting on football. He does concede however that the systems that he used to use were somewhat convoluted and he couldn’t break the betting market he wanted to using a flat betting system.
This is because he “wasn’t a soccer expert”. Whilst at a business meeting with partner James Dobson, the pair supposedly started to look at specific statistics and tools. After a few hours they “discovered an interesting secret pattern” that when back tested supposedly produced some great results.
This appears to have been the backbone of Soccer Betting Masters, however Frank Belanger and James Dobson do say that they have worked on a new system since and hove sorted out “millions of stats for almost any league”. There has been a repeat and there is now a new system which is generating huge amounts of profit.
The astute amongst you will note that there isn’t actually anything here that discusses what Frank Belanger and James Dobson’s selection process actually looks at. This is one of many issues that I have with Soccer Betting Masters.
What is the Initial Investment?
If you want to sign up to Soccer Betting Masters, there is only one option which is a one time cost of $67 (around £52) which gets you access for a full year. This is supposedly a limited time offer however with the regular price supposedly et at $297.
Alternatively, Frank Belanger and James Dobson offer a monthly option which is priced at $67, a quarterly option which is priced at $97, and finally, you can sign up for Soccer Betting Masters on a 6 monthly basis at a cost of $147.
All of these options appear to be handled directly via Clickbank which means that there is a full 60 day money back guarantee in place. This is well advertised on the Soccer Betting Masters website.
What is the Rate of Return?
Frank Belanger and James Dobson make a number of claims about the income potential of Soccer Betting Masters. These range from saying that it is a service that is “earning $10,000… $30,000 or even $200,000 a year”.
This is what they claim to be the potential…
These numbers appear to be in contradiction with a different claim which say that the earning potential for Soccer Betting Masters is 240 points per year. Whilst I have some doubts about these numbers, I do believe that the lack of proofing means that this suspicion isn’t entirely unfounded.
Conclusion to Soccer Betting Masters
If there is one thing that I wouldn’t expect from America of all places. It is a football tipster service. First of all, betting in the US is very different to the UK. This includes sports betting.
Combine this with the fact that proper football (that’s soccer for our cousins over the pond) is not something that the American public is particularly enamoured with and it shows how Soccer Betting Masters is a rather eclectic thing to exist as it does. This is evidenced by the fact that when you look at the results for the service, there are also services for the MLB, NHL, and the NBA/WNBA.
Of course, if it worked this would not stop me from discounting Soccer Betting Masters. It doesn’t matter where it comes from, if a service makes money, it makes money and the bottom line is what really matters. Unfortunately, despite the claims that are made, I don’t see any real evidence that Soccer Betting Masters can work for a number of reasons.
First of all, I want to talk about the proofing. There is some proofing provided for Soccer Betting Masters, however this is an incredibly small sample and it is for bets from 2017. This is of course despite the fact that Frank Belanger and James Dobson are selling Soccer Betting Masters as an updated service which is new for 2018/19. An update that I should point out I am yet to see any evidence of.
This is one of the biggest problems with Soccer Betting Masters in numerous regards. There simply isn’t any evidence in my book that any of it works. This starts when you look at how little information Frank Belanger and James Dobson give us about their claimed selection process.
The truth of the matter is that we are given nothing more than a tale there. The proofing is also woefully inadequate. Even if there were an accurate date (which there isn’t), the sheer lack of proofing means that I wouldn’t really recommend Soccer Betting Masters at all.
