Top 20 Golf Tips is a new sports betting tipster service from the Betting Gods stable of tipsters. As the name suggests it provides selections for professional golf however the service provides a unique spin on the sport.
What does the product offer?
When it comes to anticipating a service, there are certain sports which are more eclectic than others. For example, when it all comes down to it, there are only so many markets that you can bet on with horse racing. Whilst there are plenty more options when it comes to football betting, the truth is that most of these markets are overlooked in favour of more popular examples. And then you have golf. Golf has always been an interesting one for me when looking at tipsters as generally speaking, all markets are covered, and there are a lot of markets.
With this in mind Top 20 Golf Tips has come as a little bit of a surprise to me with a focused betting strategy that to date seems to have performed particularly well. Of course there is something of an irony in that the tipster behind the service has simplified golf betting, whilst also making it somewhat more niche. When paired with the reputation that a large and well respected tipster stable such as Betting Gods brings, Top 20 Golf Tips starts to look like a bit of a different option for those who are looking for golf tips. With this in mind, let’s get down to business.
The nature of Top 20 Golf Tips inherently means that the logistics have to be a little different to most tipster services. One of the most obvious differences is that the service is a weekly tipster service. Selections are sent out each Wednesday evening (usually between 4pm and 6pm) to subscribers with bets advised for the upcoming weekend. This is handled via email as well as being sent out via the Betting Gods app (which is available on both Android and iOS). They are also uploaded to a special member’s area on the website.
This brings me onto the bets themselves. All selections that are sent out via Top 20 Golf Tips are ante post bets with a view to identifying golfers who will finish in the top twenty of a given tournament. It is fair to say that there are a lot of long odds available here with an average of 14/1 according to Betting Gods. Looking through the proofing, there haven’t been many instances of bets advised at lower than 9.00. It goes without saying hat Top 20 Golf Tips is something of a high volume service with most events having at least 12 selections although the numbers can be higher than this.
Whilst on the subject of the numbers, it is clear that the tipster behind Top 20 Golf Tips is no fool when it comes to his system. The staking plan is a straight forward affair with 1 point advised on each bet. This means that the potential for loss is hugely mitigated as it is not uncommon to see large quantities of bets losing out. This isn’t a problem and frankly, anybody who has read this far probably saw it coming, but it still shows restraint which bodes well for Top 20 Golf Tips as a whole.
All of this leads in very nicely to the strike rate. You can probably guess that it is pretty low although at just 11.88% on average, you may be surprised at just how low it is. Of course the nature of Top 20 Golf Tips means that the strike rate is not the be all and end all and as such, I am not too concerned.
How does the product work?
In terms of the selection process, there is no information made available. This is undoubtedly a disappointment as I generally believe that every tipster should at least provide enough information about said process to allow potential customers to make an informed decision. This isn’t the be all and end all with Top 20 Golf Tips however, in no small part down to the fact that the Betting Gods team are involved (they don’t tend to keep crap around for the sake of a few sales).
With that out of the way, I want to explore the fundamental principle of Top 20 Golf Tips which is much more straight forward. Given that you are betting on multiple outcomes for the same event, it goes without saying that there is a higher chance of one selection winning than if you were to back just one outcome. Given the longer odds that are involved with Top 20 Golf Tips (and using the average), you would need just 2 selections to come in each week in order to break even. Sometimes less than this.
Of course odds are often higher than the average and it is here in where the profit lies. It also goes without saying that sometimes you will have more than 2 bets come in on a week. Once again, these can massively boost your profits on a week by week basis.
What is the initial investment?
There are three options available for Top 20 Golf Tips. The first of these is a monthly subscription which costs £30 per month. For increased value, you can sign up to Top 20 Golf Tips on a quarterly basis at a cost of £60 per quarter. Even better value than this is an annual subscription at a cost of just £180 per year. This represents phenomenal value at half of the price of paying for Top 20 Golf Tips on a monthly basis.
It is worth noting that all of these options are available on a trial basis costing just £1 to receive selections for 10 days. Furthermore, there is a full 30 day money back guarantee in place should you find that Top 20 Golf Tips isn’t for you.
What is the rate of return?
Since proofing for Top 20 Golf Tips began in February 2016, Top 20 Golf Tips has produced an overall profit of £10,810 to £10 stakes. This means 1081 points of profit and 45 points per month on average. Even more impressive however are the return on investment which has been kept at 56.3% for a long period of time There is also bank growth of 720.67% which is a phenomenal figure.
I don’t often find myself genuinely excited when it comes to tipster services. The truth of the matter is that I look at so many on a day by day basis that things simply don’t tend to “pop”. Top 20 Golf Tips however completely turns that around with some of the strongest results that I can recall seeing for some time. Honestly, I don’t really know where to start with this one however I have to start somewhere.
With this in mind, I want to look at the most obvious negative and that is the potential for loss. Statistically speaking, at some point, Top 20 Golf Tips will miss out on the wins required to boost the profits of the service. Over a few weeks, this could be as much as 40 points or a third o the starting bank. By the same token, the staking plan that I have sung the praises of ensure that this is very unlikely to be catastrophic.
To be honest, I am familiar with the core concept of Top 20 Golf Tips and it is something that I have seen fail monumentally with other services. Top 20 Golf Tips does however put its own spin on this and honestly, I don’t recall anything with the same focus on ante betting as Top 20 Golf Tips has. Whatever my previous held misconceptions of the betting strategy Top 20 Golf Tips implements is, I can’t argue with the fact that it works.
The results are not just significant (and proofed which makes a world of difference), but most importantly they are consistent. There have been just 2 losing months for Top 20 Golf Tips since proofing began. Given that this is over almost 2 years, t is a phenomenal feat and one that I don’t believe that I have seen from a reputable tipster for some time. On top of all this, Top 20 Golf Tips is probably about as low effort as it comes.
This only really leaves the value for money aspect of Top 20 Golf Tips to consider and not surprisingly, it represents phenomenal value. Even at £5 bets you would still be making in excess of £150 per month profit on average. These are the kind of numbers that I might expect with inflated results etc. however Top 20 Golf Tips simply delivers what it says. This is incredibly rare nowadays.
Given all of this, I am under no illusion that Top 20 Golf Tips is a fantastic product. Whether you are a fan of golf or not, this is one of the most impressive tipster services I have seen for a long time. The biggest problem that most bettors are likely to encounter is getting the betting bank together. At 150 points it is not a small amount of money and you will need all of this to ensure that you have the capital to bet with.
If you can get the initial cash together, I have no problem in recommending Top 20 Golf Tips as not just one of the most exciting golf tipster services I have looked at lately. It is one of the most exciting tipster services full stop.
