The Bet Specialists is a new horse racing tipster service which is operated by one Paul Doherty and his team. He claims that you have the potential to generate huge profits, seemingly with very little risk involved.
Introduction to The Bet Specialists service
As I have mentioned before now, this line of work really keeps you guessing in terms of what is going to come up. For example, at the time of writing this, I have looked at a reader request, a new offering from a large tipster stable, and rather uniquely, I have looked at a lot of independent tipsters.
Genuine ones as well. This last bit is important to keep in mind, because having spent some time with these services, it very quickly becomes very obvious when something is disingenuous. Enter The Bet Specialists.
“Discover the Pro Betting Organization that Has NEVER Had a Losing Week!” claims a headline for the service. “KEEP READING if you’re ready to make £120,000 THIS YEAR from horse racing…” claims Paul Doherty.
There are a lot of claims made about The Bet Specialists and apparently, they all demonstrate that this is a nailed down, guaranteed to make you rich tipster service. This sounds fantastic, if you haven’t seen the same kind of claims before. But anyway, there is a whole team in place (apparently), so surely, it’s got to be above board. Right…?
What Does The Bet Specialists Offer?
So, with so much seemingly on offer, what do you actually get from The Bet Specialists? The service is actually a very typical daily horse racing tipster service. The operational side of things is also exactly what I have come to expect from this kind of tipster service.
Each day (typically after around 9am) an email is sent out with selections. All that you have to do is place the bets advised and Paul Doherty basically says that you will be raking it in. Honestly, whilst there is enough information to get a bet placed, this is very much a bare minimum experience.
In terms of the bets themselves, from what I have seen so far, The Bet Specialists is a very straight forward affair. This means that you should expect win bets at a range of odds. The volume of bets is somewhat minimal, rarely getting above 4 tips on a given day. Honestly, as is so often the case with these kinds of tipster services, The Bet Specialists seems to have been designed to be about as average as possible.
Rather disappointingly (although not surprisingly), there is very little in the way of a staking plan in place for The Bet Specialists. This is rather disappointing given the fact that all of Paul Doherty’s claims in terms of the income potential are in pounds and pence.
This means that realistically, there is no tangible way of knowing how much you are supposed to bet in order to achieve the results that are claimed for The Bet Specialists.
Finally, I want to talk about the strike rate. As I have already briefly mentioned, The Bet Specialists claims that there have never been any losing weeks for the service.
How Does The Bet Specialists Work?
There is a lot to talk about in terms of how The Bet Specialists works. Paul Doherty claims that he originally started The Bet Specialists as an online “form” (presumably meaning forum? Honestly, I don’t know, but it’s the only way it makes sense). Over the years, he says that he noticed certain names who were there over and over, eventually forming “somewhat of an inner circle”. This team started to pool their tips and started making a substantial income.
They now work together by combining their specialties to provide selections to The Bet Specialists subscribers. This team of six people are comprised of the following personnel.
- Paul Doherty himself is supposedly the founder of The Bet Specialists. It seems like a reasonable assertion that given he was running an online forum relating to the topic, he has some knowledge of betting.
- Jess Hart is claimed to be the daughter of a retired jockey. From her time spent as a youth at racing events, she has supposedly developed and maintained “several strong relationships with big names in the business”. She leverages this to get inside information.
- Callum Nole is “familiar with all types of online gambling”. He supposedly has an “unbelievable mind for numbers” and knows how to play odds.
- Paresh Singh used to manage a bookies. Paul Doherty says that he is able to see how things work “from the other side” and bring this information to the table of The Bet Specialists.
- Don Green is supposedly an ex stable owner with “more than thirty years of experience under his belt”. He has also supposedly made a full time income from betting since the 90’s.
- John Forman is claimed to have been a punter for more than 40 years. During this time he has “refined his technique time and time again” with Paul Doherty saying he is one of the most skilful punters he knows.
What is the Initial Investment?
There is only one option available if you want to subscribe to The Bet Specialists. This is a one time payment of £29.99. Paul Doherty says that the subscription will last for life however I am somewhat sceptical of this claim. Mostly because I have seen a lot of tipster services in a similar vein to The Bet Specialists make the same claim, only to slowly peter off with time.
It is worth noting that there is a full 60 day money back guarantee in place if you sign up for The Bet Specialists which is backed by Clickbank. This is mentioned in the sales material for the service.
What is the Rate of Return?
There is one number that stands out for more than anything else for me in terms of the income potential of The Bet Specialists. This is a claim that on average, you will receive £10,000 per month as a minimum.
It is important to note that as mentioned earlier, there is no information on how much you would have to stake in order to achieve this result. This is particularly problematic for me. There is some evidence, however this simply comes in the shape of a highly questionable Ladbrokes screenshot.
Conclusion on The Bet Specialists
Put bluntly, there is absolutely no evidence as far as I am concerned that The Bet Specialists is actually something that is able to perform as claimed. This is very important to me as the claims that are being made in terms of results are, frankly, rubbish.
Despite a plethora of examples landing on my desk in the years I have been doing this, I am yet to see one that can even really come close to the claimed £120,000 per year.
Whilst I can appreciate that Paul Doherty has put a good looking team together for The Bet Specialists, I can’t help but feel that there is something off about that too. In my line of work, you tend to get a feel for what might be genuine and what might not be.
Whilst I would love to believe that there are in fact a team of super bettors, all acting in the background to help subscribers make money through, I don’t. The fact of the matter is that this feels fare more like something which a marketer would dream up in order to sign up those who may not no better.
The nail in the coffin for The Bet Specialists is that whilst researching this a little more, the name of the Clickbank vendor who is selling the product is one that is known to me. I wasn’t sold on The Bet Specialists at the start of all this and honestly, there isn’t a single element that has convinced me that I may be wrong.
It is an old but wise saying that if something is too good to be true, it usually is and The Bet Specialists falls very clearly into that. Sure, you could paper trade, and there may be a money back guarantee.
That way, you aren’t technically ever risking anything, but the one thing you won’t get back is the time you invest.
