Yankee Yankee is a new to market horse racing tipster service which is being offered by one Gavin Sutton. He claims that there is the potential to make a decent amount of money following his betting advice.
Introduction to Yankee Yankee
I want to open this review by addressing a bit of an interesting topic. And that is the disparity that can exist between the marketing for a tipster service, and the reality. Now, I can appreciate that when you are trying to sell anything, you always want to cast it in the best light. You may even look to massage the truth a little bit. But there is a point where the disconnect can become so large that it is difficult to ignore. And one of the things I see so often in this line of work is tipsters who fall into this. Sometimes intentionally, other times not.
This is all very important to keep in mind because today, I want to talk about a tipster service that suffers quite significantly from this problem. I also want to look at some of the ways that Gavin Sutton has set everything up. Because honestly, on the surface of things, Yankee Yankee looks like an absolute no brainer. It’s free to try out, it has some solid looking profits, the ideas behind the service are all pretty reasonable seeming. Even I will concede the point that having given this some time, I was a little bit excited.
However, what is important to keep in mind is that as a professional, I was able to take a step back in analysing Yankee Yankee and look at it through an entirely objective lens. And there… Well, things just don’t end up looking quite as rosy. Don’t get me wrong, Gavin Sutton definitely does enough. Enough that you might hang on here. Because things can easily turn around. Because the next bet might be the big one. Because for this bet, you had a couple of winners. Except, you’re still down. There is quite a lot to unpack here, so let’s get down to it.
What Does Yankee Yankee Offer?
At its core, Yankee Yankee is a very simple offering in terms of the wider field of tipster services. The truth of the matter is that whilst there are elements of what Gavin Sutton does that are somewhat exciting, the principle ideas are all things that don’t really bring anything new to the wider tipping landscape. All things that I say without any real criticism. Because the fact is, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.
But what exactly does this translate to? First things first, I want to start with the logistics and how Gavin Sutton manages Yankee Yankee. The truth of the matter is that in many respects, this is where the service is definitely at its least interesting (in many respects). It is also the area where I think everything really is what you would expect.
So, the abridged notes are that Yankee Yankee is a near daily horse racing tipster (with no selections on Sundays). As is the case with pretty much every tipster service that comes to market these days, selections are sent out to subscribers directly via email, typically before 11am. To be fair to Gavin Sutton, they do contain pretty much everything that you would need to place a bet, including some advised odds. Which is a welcome thing.
Unfortunately, actually getting the advised odds does seem to be a bit of a struggle. There is no information on which bookies are offering them, which means that unfortunately, you are pretty much on your own there. Compounding this problem is the fact that the Yankee bets that Yankee Yankee is so reliant on aren’t something that you can easily take advantage of through an odds comparison site.
And with that, it is time to talk about the bets. For those who aren’t familiar with a Yankee, it is a type of bet that brings together multiple smaller accumulators on four different selections into one big bet. Specifically, you are looking at 6 doubles, 4 trebles, and the 4-fold acca itself. The key theory here is that by bringing together the bets in that way, you don’t need all of them to win to lock in a profit.
Now, it goes without saying that if one of these bets comes in, you are going to win big. Gavin Sutton provides examples showing returns of as high as 29.54 points. However, all of this is ultimately dictated by the odds that you are betting at. And whilst the sales material shows some examples of pretty decent odds winners coming in, this doesn’t seem to be the case based off my experience.
The truth is that even the advised odds that Gavin Sutton has advised for Yankee Yankee have had, at most, prices of about 4/1. Otherwise, you are looking at bets at quite low odds. Even as low as evens. Except, the unfortunate reality is that you will often end up having to go even lower than that. Which is concerning to me in some respects.
You see, Yankee Yankee just doesn’t seem to win all that often. In the sales material, Gavin Sutton shows a full Yankee landing, as well as several bets with 3 winners. All of these supposedly happened within 6 days of each other. Surely then, you’d expect similar results to present themselves, right? As of my writing this, there have been 2 doubles that have landed. One resulted in a modest win, the other still had a loss of 5 points.
One of the only good things here is that if you are following Gavin Sutton’s advice, you shouldn’t be spending too much money. Every bet is advised to stakes of just £11 across all bets (£1 per point) with a £220 betting bank. So, at the very least, the potential losses that you might incur through Yankee Yankee are limited.
How Does Yankee Yankee Work?
When it comes to describing how Yankee Yankee actually works… Well, it’s a difficult thing if I’m completely honest. Something that is fuelled in no small part by the fact that Gavin Sutton doesn’t really have much of anything to say about the service at all. Between the sales material and correspondence from Gavin Sutton there isn’t a single snippet of information.
The only thing that we are really told is that because of the bet type used, you only require “2 or more winners to see a return from the bet”. The implication of this, at least in my opinion, is that there is some sort of additional merit to bringing together bets in a Yankee. Furthermore, I want to highlight that whilst Gavin Sutton’s assertion that only 2 horses need to win for a return, Yankee Yankee can still lose money, even when it wins. Something that has happened already.
What categorically isn’t discussed however is what the selection process for Yankee Yankee entails. There is absolutely no information whatsoever provide in this regard, and honestly, it is quite concerning. The fact of the matter is that in order for something like this to really work, you have to be picking the right horses in the first place, and that requires a decent knowledge of the sport you are betting on.
Unfortunately, Gavin Sutton doesn’t do a whole lot to demonstrate this. Instead, what we are told is “I place one small bet each day, this has allowed me to minimize my risk and still see big profits return from my betting”. All backed up by pretty much no proofing or evidence. All despite the fact that there is an implication that he has been doing this for a reasonable period of time.
What is the Initial Investment?
Technically speaking, if you want to sign up for Yankee Yankee, there are technically a few options open to you. First and foremost, Gavin Sutton does actually offer a rather generous seeming 14 day free trial (at the time of writing). This allows you to theoretically get a feel for the service without any substantial outlay. This then moves on to a monthly cost of £19 per month we are told.
Alternatively, you can choose to sin up to Yankee Yankee on an “annual membership”. This gives you access to tips for the rest of 2021 for a cost of £47 (plus VAT). This is of course tremendous value compared to a monthly subscription with a saving of £152 over the course of the year according to Gavin Sutton.
Something that is very noteworthy to me is that Yankee Yankee is being sold through Clickbank. This means that should you find that the service isn’t for you, there is a full 30 day money back guarantee in place. A fact that Gavin Sutton conveniently fails to mention anywhere in the sales material for the service.
What is the Rate of Return?
There aren’t really any specific claims made in terms of the income potential for Yankee Yankee. At least, not in the sales material for the service. However, there is some insight in the myriad of emails that I received. The one that stands out to me most of all is one that Gavin Sutton has been “making over £300 on average per month”. A very interesting claim indeed.
Here’s the thing, that figure that I Just mentioned comes with no real evidence or proofing. Meanwhile, what little Gavin Sutton does give us seems to suggest that Yankee Yankee is capable of producing £547.91 in just a few short days. A stark contrast to the claimed result in the sales material. Honestly though, both of these higher figures are dramatically at odds with what I have seen, which is a service that has ultimately just lost money.
Conclusion for Yankee Yankee
At the start of this review, I was talking about the disconnect and the reality of following a tipster service. Honestly that wasn’t without reason. Because one of the single biggest considerations when you look at Yankee Yankee is that disconnect between what Gavin Sutton is selling, and what you actually get for your money.
To look at what Gavin Sutton projects, you could easily come into this thinking that you’re getting into a tipster service that will win consistently. After all, the sales material for Yankee Yankee shows that there are three quite profitable bets in a single week. In the meantime, there are those claims of income in the emails, as well as that assertion that just 2 wins will provide us with “returns”.
Every single thing that I have seen to date strongly suggests that Yankee Yankee will not be able to deliver on that claimed income. Or in fact results. Not to mention that fact that, as mentioned, when there has been two horses win, Gavin Sutton hasn’t necessarily produced a profit. Now I will concede, saying you will produce a return does not mean you are saying you will see a profit, but I also feel like that is the implication of the phrasing.
Now, this isn’t a coincidence in my opinion (as are a large number of other disparities that exist within Yankee Yankee). There is a lot of implication really to Gavin Sutton’s marketing. And unfortunately, much of that, it seems, will not be delivered on. Of course, this begs the question, why would you make such suggestions if you are going to let people trial your service for free?
Well, there is a rather complicated answer to this. And in order to accurately paint a picture, I have to talk about some elements of Yankee Yankee that most people wouldn’t necessarily think about. And key amongst these is that the vendor who is actually selling the service through Clickbank is one that is well known to me. Unfortunately, not for good reasons.
They have put out numerous services making the same sort of claims in terms of income and ability. Unfortunately, they haven’t delivered on these consistently in the long run and have quietly closed. I believe that ultimately, Yankee Yankee will be no different. As for the 14 day trial period, well, it’s quite simple. If you get a big win in that time, you get people signing up. If you don’t, the fact that you’re betting using a particularly high risk strategy is a good defence.
Of course, if anybody does sign up to Yankee Yankee, once they have passed the 30 day refund period (that Gavin Sutton doesn’t tell you about, I would hasten to add), they don’t have much recourse. The fact is that Clickbank can be very good, but once their money back guarantee period is over, they do become somewhat more difficult.
Now, I don’t want you to think that I am saying this is categorically the case. Yankee Yankee really could be genuine and above board, Gavin Sutton could actually have won those three bets as advertised, but I’m not really sold on it. The fact is that even putting the above aside, there is no real evidence demonstrating this works. There is no insight into a selection process, no proofing, only a relatively brief trial period.
So, would I recommend Yankee Yankee? Do you know what. By all means, sign up and give it a go for a few weeks. Maybe Gavin Sutton will actually get lucky in that period of time. As for paying £47 for this… Well, that would be a much riskier investment. And one that, in my mind, I simply couldn’t bring myself to recommend.
The fact is that what Yankee Yankee really boils down to is taking Gavin Sutton’s word that it works. Whether you sign up for that free trial or not. The big issue here is that he is also the one person who stands to profit whether you are successful with your betting venture. And for my money, it just doesn’t seem smart to rely on his word that this will work for you.
