Soccer Stats Bot is a piece of sports betting software from Steve Davidson of Winningmore. He claims that it has the potential to make you an income through football betting automatically.
Introduction to Soccer Stats Bot
Steve Davidson has been around for some time and rather interestingly, the track records for his products and services isn’t terrible. Now, based off that, you may be wondering why I don’t cover every release of his with bated breath, and the short answer is that whilst his company Winningmore put out decent enough services, I am not often convinced by the profit potential of them.
This may all sound like a pretty interesting way to start looking at a service, but there is good reason for it. You see, todays offering, Soccer Stats Bot is pretty much hands off. I love the idea of a passive income and that is precisely what we are being offered here. For those who aren’t familiar with the term, it boils down to making money without having to do anything.
So, for that reason more than any other, I can say that I am quite interested in Soccer Stats Bot. If you are going to work for your money, then there has to be a decent enough payoff, but if somebody offered you just £5 a day, without you having to do anything for it, would you take it? So, the big question is whether Steve Davidson is up to a decent standard, and how this translates to Soccer Stats Bot.
What Does Soccer Stats Bot Offer?
Whilst the focus of Soccer Stats Bot is ultimately a piece of software, Steve Davidson has actually put together a pretty decent overall package. This includes everything that you would need in order to get the software set up (a topic that does require some discussion, but I’ll get to that), as well as a number of different strategies that you can implement.
So, first things first, let’s talk about that software. Now, I will always be pretty blunt, and this is no different. The inner workings I will get to a little later, but I want to start by talking a little bit about the interface and how easy it is to use. Put simply, this really isn’t great.
The interface is somewhat overwhelming and it really isn’t very intuitively laid out. It is very busy and until you have been through the manual a number of times and followed Steve Davidson’s video tutorials (which for those who are curious, you can see these on the sales page), you will find yourself getting lost.
This is rather typical of products from Winningmore though. I can say that in all of the time that I have been doing this, I have never looked at one of Steve Davidson’s products and thought to myself “Yeah, that’s good looking and user friendly”.
Now, once you are a bit more comfortable and used to things, I will admit that it isn’t actually as bad as I’ve made it out to be so far. It is still clunky but it is serviceable and most importantly, it allows you to set the software up how you want.
From here, I want to move on to the features that Soccer Stats Bot gives you access to, because there is actually quite a lot here. There are seven different strategies that are included (and I will cover them a little later) and you can set up your betting strategy using a number of different features.
This includes a number of things that you would expect such as “Stop at a Winner” and level staking. You can also set the Soccer Stats Bot software to bet within certain odds, rotating the bets, and a number of stop loss options. Honestly, Steve Davidson has put together quite a sophisticated little thing here and I will say that this is where the software starts to shine.
Once you have set everything up, it is pretty much a case of simply deciding on the strategies that you want to take advantage of, and you are away. It is simply a case of setting Soccer Stats Bot up on either your own computer, or as Steve Davidson points out, a VPS. This latter option allows you to run it all day, becoming fully passive.
Moving on to the strategies, these are all relatively straight forward. There majority of these are based around backing a home team to win under certain circumstances. There are also a few strategies based around a few of the goals markets. They aren’t ground breaking, but then because they are automated, that makes sense.
All of these strategies are fully detailed in the in the manual for Soccer Stats Bot which Steve Davidson actually makes available for free. Combined with those videos, this means that you can actually take an in depth look at what Winningmore have put together yourself, before you buy. Obviously, it doesn’t give you everything, but it does give you an idea of what you are dealing with.
It is worth pointing out that the training manual and the
How Does Soccer Stats Bot Work?
So, as mentioned, this is an automated trading strategy. With trading of course meaning that you will need an account with Betfair in order to take advantage of the product. The software uses Betfair’s own API in order to place your bets which means that whilst the software will bet for you, it doesn’t actually have access to your account.
One of the things that is interesting about Soccer Stats Bot to me is that the service is configured to use a relatively low yielding approach to betting. This means that you won’t necessarily be brining in the big bucks with any of the strategies really. For context, the strategy that carries the most risk involves looking at maximum odds of 5.0.
This is somewhat offset though by the frequency with which Soccer Stats Bot will aim to find bets. To say that it has the potential to be a high volume betting system is a bit of an understatement. Utilising all of the strategies, there is no getting around the fact that you (or the software) will be placing hundreds of bets per month.
Honestly, that is about all that there is to Soccer Stats Bot. Whilst I will admit that ultimately, the software itself can be cumbersome and a little bit complicated, once you are up and running, what Steve Davidson has put together isn’t a particularly complicated thing. Factor in that you don’t really have to do anything with it, and potentially, this can leave you in a pretty good place.
What is the Initial Investment?
When you sign up to Soccer Stats Bot, you are actually signing up for a license to the software. This means that there are some rather limited options. The first of these is a 6 month license which is priced at £99 plus VAT.
Alternatively, and representing slightly better value, is a 12 month license for Soccer Stats Bot. For this, Steve Davidson is asking £149 plus VAT. That is quite a lot of money as an initial outlay, even if it does work out at less than £3 per week as the sales material is keen to highlight.
It is also worth noting that as is the case with all products which are offered through Winningmore, there is no money back guarantee or refund on Soccer Stats Bot. Steve Davidson says that their products are information products and are intangible, and as such, there is nothing hat you can really return if it isn’t for you. This is very important when you look at those costs.
What is the Rate of Return?
The income potential for Soccer Stats Bot is not necessarily prolific. Over all seven of the strategies, you will have seen a return of £846.70 to £1 profit delta (this effectively means backing bets after a loser to produce a profit of £1). I will admit, that this doesn’t necessarily look like the most impressive of figures.
When you factor in though that this runs from various points in March and April to the start of August. And you haven’t really had to do anything for it, then these results do start to look a little bit more inviting. Sure, they aren’t going to set the world alight, but this number is also easily scalable as well.
Conclusion for Soccer Stats Bot
Whilst it has been a while since I have looked at something from Steve Davidson and Winningmore, I can say that the conclusion is roughly the same as it always is. Soccer Stats Bot is a very interesting looking product and there is plenty of potential in terms of what has been put together. Will it work for everybody? I think that a very fair answer to that is probably not, but this is conditional.
Yes, there is of course some profit to be had, and I would even venture that it is pretty impressive. That £846 could very easily be £8,460 and that is a lot of money to have earned doing nothing at all. But, there are massive conditions linked to this and that is where the problems start to rear their heads.
You see, what I haven’t talked about is the number of bets that you are placing and the betting bank you need for this. As a piece of software, Soccer Stats Bot can theoretically place 120 bets a given time. Which means that you need a very substantial betting bank.
You can also expect Soccer Stats Bot to bet a lot. In that period mentioned in the income potential, the software placed some 2,500 bets across the seven strategies. Using that figure of £8,460, you would have been staking £10 per bet and so, £25,000 bet over the time period.
Naturally, not all of that happens in one day, but it does mean that you need a very significant bank to cover the potential volume of bets that you may be placing. Especially when you factor in that some of the strategies that are involved are lay bets, which means having the liability in your bank in order to bet.
Honestly, I don’t think that this is a bad product at all. What I will say however is that I think that it is a bit of a niche product. What Steve Davidson has put together is clearly effective at achieving the goals that he has set out for it. And that is something that should be commended.
I also don’t think that it is hugely expensive. It is a bit pricey for my tastes, but that is down to the fact that I know of some very good systems that offer fantastic (and in some cases, guaranteed) returns for much less. But these products are manual trading whereas Soccer Stats Bot you can leave to make money in the background, so I can see why it costs a little more.
The aim here is clear. It is small profits that are made often. And for some people, that is enough. Making that £850 in 6 months might be good enough. As mentioned, some people may be able to afford scaling up that and making something more respectable, but of course, that does carry significant additional expensive.
What I think most people I know are looking for though is something that they can have control over. That they can potentially make much more money on than the equivalent of about a fiver a day. Sure, it isn’t to be sniffed at, but if putting in extra work can make you ten or even twenty times that amount, is it worth it?
Here’s the bottom line. If you don’t mind that limited income potential, and you want something that you can leave (whilst having a decent wedge to get started), then Soccer Stats Bot may be a good fit for you. But by and large, this isn’t something that I think fits what most people are looking for, and as such, I wouldn’t recommend it to everybody.
