The Bookies’ Blind Spot Review

The Bookies’ Blind Spot is a new to market horse racing tipster service that is operated by Pete Bradford. The service supposedly produces some truly incredible profit through horse racing betting.

Introduction to The Bookies’ Blind Spot

More than anything else, I think what really motivates people when it comes to betting is profit. Now, this is, in theory, a relatively black and white thing. But there are actually a lot of questions that come with this. How much is enough? Of course, there is no one size fits all answer to this. And in fact, for most people who take betting seriously, the answer is likely to be relatively modest. But that doesn’t alter the fact that there are some people who are better described as greedy (or desperate) rather than wanting to simply turn a profit.

This is something that is often exploited by some of the more erm… questionable, shall we say, elements that exist within the tipster industry. But here’s the thing, whilst I am always sceptical when a tipster turns up saying that they can make £150,000 per year through betting… well, I also feel like it would be remiss not to check them out just in case. Which brings me to The Bookies’ Blind Spot. A tipster service that, according to Pete Bradford, is able to deliver exactly that number.

Of course, it’s very easy to be sceptical of this kind of thing. One may even say that it’s sensible. But either way, I can’t help but feel like it would be remiss of me not to have a look at this, on the off chance. Because if I did miss out on this kind of opportunity because of a cynical nature, I’d kick myself forever. With all of that said, I really will try to keep an open mind here, so let’s get into it and see whether or not Pete Bradford is really all that he claims to be, and if there is any actual money to be made through The Bookies’ Blind Spot.  

What Does The Bookies’ Blind Spot Offer?

The core offering of The Bookies’ Blind Spot is something that is ultimately quite straight forward. Which doesn’t really surprise me given the nature of this service. Of course, this isn’t actually information that you’d be able to tell from looking at the sales material for the service. Because the blunt truth is that Pete Bradford doesn’t actually tell you much of anything. In fact, he seems to go out of his way to avoid doing this.

So, what exactly are you getting into? The Bookies’ Blind Spot is a near daily horse racing tipster service. I say near daily as whilst you do receive bets most days, it seems like Pete Bradford does have the odd day off. Not that you receive a huge amount of notice on this or anything. As you would probably expect, selections are issued directly via email, they tend to land quite late in the day, and the information provide is… well, minimal, at best.

This latter part is quite important. What sort of odds should you be looking for? Where should you be placing your bets? All very good questions. Just… don’t expect answers if you’re following The Bookies’ Blind Spot. This means that if you are signed up, you probably want to try and take advantage of an odds comparison site if you can. At the very least, you can rest assured that you’re doing your best.

What I can say in terms of the bets that you are placing, The Bookies’ Blind Spot is a straight win based service. Furthermore, as Pete Bradford says several times in the sales material, you aren’t betting on favourites (about the only real information that you do get). And well, this is reflected in the average odds which are on the longer side. Although, despite the claims made, this isn’t a service that goes nearly as far as other tipsters in this regard.

Whilst we’re talking about the bets, I want to touch on the volume of bets that you will be placing. The Bookies’ Blind Spot is pretty modest in this regard. Most days will see just a small handful of selections. This isn’t the worst thing though, for a number of reasons. What I will say though is that even with the 2 or 3 tips you can expect to receive most days, this can still add up. Especially if you don’t know what you’re doing with your staking.

This isn’t the kind of point that I normally have to raise. But the fact is that information on how you should be betting with The Bookies’ Blind Spot is… well, it’s almost non-existent. The first thing to note is that Pete Bradford doesn’t actually provide any staking information for his own bets. Something that becomes incredibly pertinent a little later on.

The real problem though is that you don’t really know how much you should be staking yourself. In a very clear obfuscation of information (at least in my opinion), Pete Bradford tells you nothing. There is no mention of a betting bank required, there is no mention of how you should be managing your bank on a per bet basis. This is incredibly basic stuff, and it is very frustrating for it to be missing like this.

For what little it is worth, if I were going to follow The Bookies’ Blind Spot, I’d probably want a minimum betting bank of 100 points. I would also be staking no more than a single point per bet. This means that in theory, you should have coverage for about a month of betting. Maybe a bit more. And I do think you’ll need this, because I’m not so certain you’ll be winning quite as often as Pete Bradford implies.

This is a statement that is once again a pretty solid indicator of things with The Bookies’ Blind Spot. The sales material strongly suggests that Pete Bradford will be winning very regularly. There are various statements about how he is able to pick out winning bets over and over, but there isn’t actually any strike rate provided. Nor is there really anything that we can calculate this from. One again, it seems like there is more interest in hiding information than providing it.

How Does The Bookies’ Blind Spot Work?

At this point, the lack of actual factual information that is provided for The Bookies’ Blind Spot might as well be a running joke. It barely exists in the sales material, and from what I’ve seen, there is little reason to believe that this will be any different when you sign up either. However, we are given some insight into how Pete Bradford is picking out his winning horses. Well… We’re sort of given that insight…

At the core of how The Bookies’ Blind Spot “works” is the rather preposterous notion that in order to be profitable in beating the bookies you have to be backing the horses that the bookies miss. That you have to be “the exception to the rule”. Of course, that makes sense on paper, but it’s like saying that you have to pick winners by finding the horses that will win. It’s a bit of a nothing statement.

Of course, we are told, that isn’t all that there is to The Bookies’ Blind Spot. We are also told that in his youth Pete Bradford was “studying horse racing; collecting information, analyzing, looking for patterns, coming to conclusions”. Again, that sounds fair enough. But it doesn’t actually tell us anything about how selections are picked. And this lack of a selection process is really quite problematic here.

You see, I can appreciate that not every tipster wants to tell you how they’re picking out bets. However, with The Bookies’ Blind Spot we’re given nothing in terms of evidence either. There is a highly questionable screenshot of a William Hill account and that’s about it. Basic things like proofing just aren’t there. Which is quite concerning to me given that Pete Bradford has supposedly been running this for a few years.

What is the Initial Investment?

If you want to sign up to The Bookies’ Blind Spot there is just one option that is available. This is a one time cost of £26.99 (plus VAT). This is referred to as a “one-time admin fee”. It is also, we are told, a reduction on the historic value Pete Bradford has asked for his tips (about £33). I can’t argue against the fact that this is very cheap, but it doesn’t necessarily represent value for money (a topic that I will pick up soon).

It is worth noting that The Bookies’ Blind Spot comes with a full 60 day money back guarantee. This is backed up by the fact that Pete Bradford is selling the service through Clickbank. They are generally very good at ensuring that this is adhered to. As such, I would expect that you shouldn’t have any problems claiming this if you needed to. 

What is the Rate of Return?

Pete Bradford’s key claim for The Bookies’ Blind Spot is that he made £150,000 last year. Specifically, we are told, £150,375.37. We know that this is the amount because it is shown in a highly questionable screenshot of a William Hill betting account (as if this is supposed to count for something). The issue that I have with all of this is that there is no context provided at any point.

The fact is that £150,000 could be 15,000 points to £10 stakes or 150 point to £1,000 stakes. This context matters. The so called testimonials for the service are all very conveniently in line with this with one stating that they consistently make around £12,000 each month and another says that they’ve made more than £65,000 (again, with no context on any of them).

Conclusion for The Bookies’ Blind Spot

The big question that hangs over The Bookies’ Blind Spot is how much of Pete Bradford’s sales patter you choose to believe. The truth of the matter is that for my money, the short answer is… well, not a lot. There are a lot of reasons for this, which of course makes it quite difficult to know where to begin. There is however one glaring area that I feel deserves some attention, and that is the lack of evidence and information.

There is a lot to cover here. But I want to start with the one piece of demonstrable evidence that Pete Bradford provides. That is the screenshot Pete Bradford provides showing all of his money in a William Hill account. I don’t know if you’ve ever had your account restricted or even closed through a bookie, but it doesn’t take much. I certainly don’t believe that any bookmaker would allow you to take 6 figures out as a consistent profit and still keep your account open.

Then there is that lack of information. I know I’ve harped on about it but it bears repeating. Even if Pete Bradford did have £150,000 in a William Hill account, there is no way of knowing how he got it. That kind of context is incredibly important and anybody who actually knows horse racing will look at The Bookies’ Blind Spot and see through this. But that is somewhat by design, I feel.

Moving on from that, let’s examine the lack of insight into the selection process. Frankly, I’m not entirely certain that there is a genuine selection process. The Bookies’ Blind Spot seems to be based mostly on the idea that making somewhat grandiose statements that sound clever is enough to get you by. That doesn’t really fly with me though. I am a man of substance, and that is something that is severely lacking when it comes to Pete Bradford.

All of this is of course incredibly concerning. As, if I’m frank, is the marketing approach. This talks about achieving financial freedom, Pete Bradford talks about a champagne lifestyle and shows off luxury homes, fine dining, and tropical holidays. Here’s the thing, I don’t believe that this is what you can expect from The Bookies’ Blind Spot. As terrible as it is to say, the feeling here is that this is a service that is designed to suck in those who just don’t know better.

Anybody who knows a single thing about betting will look at The Bookies’ Blind Spot and instantly question everything. Especially because the more you dig around, the more apparent it becomes that there is that lack of anything concrete. On the other hand, if you didn’t know, would less than £30 be a lot of money to pay out? And if you don’t do well… well, it’s not a lot of money, right? No harm no foul, as the say.

Here’s the bottom line when it comes to The Bookies’ Blind Spot in my eyes, and it is something I say quite often. If you don’t pay a lot of money for a bad product, you’re still paying for a bad product. The only thing this has going for it is that it is exceptionally cheap, but if you’re not going to get what you pay for (which I don’t think you’ll get anything here, never mind £12,000 a month), you’re paying for something that is a bit crap.

With all of that in mind, and probably not at all surprisingly, I can’t really bring myself to recommend The Bookies’ Blind Spot. There really isn’t much substance here that I have seen. Everything seems to hinge on the notion that you can make a huge amount of money, except, that just doesn’t seem to be any sort of realistic outcome.

It surprises me how Pete Bradford and Paul Jenkins (bookies raider) send exactly the same promotional emails 2 or 3 times a day. I suspect they don’t exist or their names have been hijacked by marketers if the are known tipsters although you can normally track them down on google but neither come up so a think it’s a random name generator. Also I joined Peter Bradford in a similar position to write a review and even though I am member (emails with selections have not been received for over a week), I still get invites to join up. The whole thing is unprofessionally presented but I guess they don’t care they will systematically collect around 27 quid off punters. Even the tips, vague as they are, you would expect them to be in race time order or grouped by course which suggests they are just a lucky dip
