Elite Betting Syndicate is an independent horse racing tipster service which has been around for a considerable length of time. It has produced some pretty decent profits over the long term.
Introduction to Elite Betting Syndicate
It’s always good to see tipster services which come from a genuinely independent source. What I mean by this, is that there far too many tipster stables out there who will push out a service because it’s had a few good months (usually at massively inflated prices). Alternatively, you find yourself dealing with tipster services that clearly have no intention of producing any sort of long term profit for their subscribers.
So, when something like Elite Betting Syndicate comes along, it is rather difficult not to pay attention. Here is a tipster service which has been around for a hell of a long time by tipster services. It also has some seemingly very good results that have been attained on a relatively consistent basis. Surely then, this is a shoe in, right?
Well, this is a bit of a difficult one to answer. Because whilst there are a lot of strong positives surrounding Elite Betting Syndicate, there are also a few questions that probably should be considered. As is almost always the way when it comes to tipping services, there are a lot of ways of measuring success, and one man’s success may not be for another. So, let’s get into this and see what is, and isn’t so good, about Elite Betting Syndicate.
What Does Elite Betting Syndicate Offer?
When I first look at Elite Betting Syndicate, the thing that immediately jumps out at me is actually a single word. And that is “syndicate”. Now, betting syndicates aren’t anything new. From punters down the pub to groups of office workers on the Lotto. Now they can work, and in fact for some people do work. But I am always a little wary about that, if I’m entirely honest.
Fortunately, I can say that Elite Betting Syndicate isn’t a syndicate in the typical sense of the word. Sure, there are a group of people betting, but that is about where the similarities end. The fact of the matter is that what you are actually looking at is a relatively straight forward tipster service. And it is a very well ran one at that.
So, let’s move onto what exactly you are getting into. The service is a near daily tipster service, and whilst this is a phrase that I’ve used before, Elite Betting Syndicate really is near daily. For the whole of February, there has been just one day that selections weren’t advised.
When selections are available, they are typically made available the evening before racing. This ensures that almost anybody should have plenty of time to get bets placed and importantly, get the best possible prices. But on top of this, there are also sometimes follow up emails where additional betting opportunities have been found. This is something of a rarity, but it really does highlight the work ethic of the Elite Betting Syndicate team.
Now, in terms of the bets themselves, as I often find myself saying, Elite Betting Syndicate is a horse racing tipster service. This means that there are of course rather limited markets on which you can bet. However this does take full advantage of both win and each way bets in order to maximise the potential returns.
Whilst on the topic of bets, I feel like it is very important to highlight a few things. First of all, this is a pretty high volume service. At least, some of the time. You see, whilst everything ultimately balances itself out the range on the quantity of bets is massive. Realistically, you will see anywhere from 50 bets per month, all the way up to 120 bets per month. Of course, the most common scenario is much more towards the median of these numbers.
One thing that jumps out at me is the odds that are involved. Now horse racing is a bit of a funny old thing when it comes to tipping horses. Most tipsters are looking for value, and this usually ends up meaning simply backing horses priced at 33/1 that a tipster has rated at 25/1. That is definitely value, but you’re still backing an outsider there.
With Elite Betting Syndicate, there are some undoubtedly very long shots. It isn’t uncommon to get horses tipped at double digits. But these are also balanced out with a variety of odds going to around 3/1 at the lower end of the scale. In theory, this balances out the number of wins that you can expect with ensuing maximum profits when a horse does come in.
The reality of this is however somewhat mixed. You see, the strike rate for Elite Betting Syndicate stands at just 22.38%. Now that isn’t the worst number that I’ve seen, and given the range of odds it is even arguably justifiable. But that doesn’t mean that it is necessarily great either.
And finally, I want to come to the staking plan, as this also plays a part when it comes to potential problems with Elite Betting Syndicate. You receive staking advice with your bets, and whilst this is mostly a level affair, the proofing for the service does show that you can end up betting as much as 6 points on a single bet. This isn’t often, but these kinds of things can add up.
How Does Elite Betting Syndicate Work?
When it comes to how Elite Betting Syndicate works, I won’t lie. There are certainly some… Issues, shall we say? The fact of the matter is that the team behind the service just don’t got into a huge amount of detail in terms of what the selection process really entails. With that said, they do provide some information. And rather interestingly, whilst it is vague, I am inclined to believe it.
So, what exactly are we told? Ultimately, we are told that Elite Betting Syndicate is based on “sophisticated data analysis techniques” which is combined with the teams “outstanding horse racing knowledge”. We are also told that there are connections with stables from across the country, supposedly including “Yorkshire, Somerset, and Newmarket”.
That provides a reasonable window into what you can expect. Would I like more? Of course I would. I will always say that as a consumer, you should be able to make as informed a decision as you can. But there is some information, which is more than you get with other tipsters. And on top of this, there is also some very comprehensive proofing provide.
And that is what really sells me on Elite Betting Syndicate. The proofing that has been put together is incredibly in depth, it goes all the way back to 2016, and it updates frequently. As such, it provides you with a massive amount of insight into the service Effectively, you can look at these long term results and see the ebb and flow of those results and ultimately, you can use this to inform your decisions.
What is the Initial Investment?
If you want to sign up to Elite Betting Syndicate, there is only really one option that is available. This is a monthly subscription which is priced at £39 per month plus VAT. This also includes a trial period whereby you get access to selections for 10 days, for a cost of just £1.
It is worth noting that whilst it isn’t mentioned in the sales material, Elite Betting Syndicate does come with a 30 day money back guarantee. This is something that is actually offered through Clickbank who handle the process for the service.
What is the Rate of Return?
Now we come to the part of Elite Betting Syndicate that is somewhat polarising. And that is the results. So, first of all, I want to talk about the points profit. According to the proofing, the service has produced a points profit of 542.98 since October 2016. This means some 155 points per year which isn’t terrible. However, there are obviously services that have made more.
The ROI for the service is also pretty impressive. 16.46% isn’t a terrible number by any stretch of the imagination, but to maintain that for 3 and a half years is just incredibly consistent. It is definitely a very impressive number.
Ultimately though, whilst I think that the numbers are pretty good, there is a reasonable argument to be made that you can get more than a 16.46% ROI or 155 points per year elsewhere.
Conclusion for Elite Betting Syndicate
I have looked at a lot of tipster services in my time. Almost all of them have strong pros and cons and there is a lot to weight up. Ultimately, Elite Betting Syndicate isn’t any different. But there is a lot to weigh up in a very interesting way. And this will potentially end up rambling a little, but just bear with me because ultimately it is worth sticking around for.
So, first of all, I want to address what are arguably the biggest criticisms when it comes to Elite Betting Syndicate. I also want to make clear that when I say the “biggest” criticisms, these are by no means deal breakers. Now first of all there is the pricing. What is being asked here leans ever so slightly towards the expensive side.
Now it isn’t that £39 per month is a massive amount of money. In fact, whilst it is towards the top end of what I’d consider to be average in cost, it is still in that range. The thing is, when you add on the VAT you’re looking at around £47 per month. Again, in and of itself, that may not be terrible but you have to put that into some context.
We know that the average yearly is around 155 points, which equates to about 13 points per month (technically speaking 12.91 points). Using £10 stakes, this means that an average month means actually making just £83 per month (or 8.3 points) profit once you’ve included your subs.
If you are staking more than this, then I suppose these numbers aren’t necessarily terrible. Something that I think the ROI that I mentioned earlier is a pretty accurate reflection of, but ultimately, all of this will once again come back to how much you are able to stake.
With all of that out of the way, I want to talk about what works with Elite Betting Syndicate. And I’ll be honest, a large part of that boil down to consistency. The fact of the matter is that whilst there are arguments that can be made against the results, the fact that they have been maintained over such a long period of time says a lot.
The fact of the matter is that if you are willing to commit to a long term approach to betting, then you can definitely do much worse than this. And that is where I think the real appeal lies. I have seen a few people mention Elite Betting Syndicate in a positive light, and they are people that by and large, I trust the opinion of.
For my money, I think that there is probably better out there. However, that doesn’t mean that is a bad service a all. Arguably far from it. The thing is that the nature of what I do really does bring me into contact with over a thousand different betting systems in my time. As such, I perhaps see much more than most bettors will do. And maybe that just allows me to see things a little differently.
So, would I ultimately recommend Elite Betting Syndicate? For most people reading this, I don’t think that I would really. But not because it’s bad. It’s more that, the costs involved with Elite Betting Syndicate, and the somewhat limited returns (compared to some services out there), there are just better value for money alternatives on the market.
