It is probably no exaggeration to say that for every sports betting system that holds some merit, there are a hundred more that will not only be a waste of your money for the initial purchase, but can cost you many times more in losing bets made following the advice. It is an unfortunate side effect of the ease in which betting system information can be produced and distributed on the internet that it is all to easy for unscrupulous betting system sellers to prey on the unwary. There are, however a few simple checks you can make to help you find the occasional needle in the betting systems haystack and determine whether a betting system may actually produce some profit:
1. Independent Proofing:
Most of the websites selling betting systems will be extremely persuasive and well written, obviously with the intention to convince you to buy. However, you should treat any claimed results at face value and look for independent verification. There are a number of independent proofing sites on the web and if a method is really capable of producing profits, the system sellers should have no problem with supplying the proof. A useful technique is also to ask questions on any of the independent forums to gain a cross section of opinion from people who have no vested interest in selling you the system.
2. Contact The Vendor:
One effective way to gauge the integrity of a betting system is to contact the website owner. If there are no available available contact details, whether its an e-mail address or contact form on the site, this should already serve as a warning. If you receive no reply to your questions, or are not satisfied with the response, you can obviously make a call call on the betting systems validity on this basis. On the other hand if the reply is open honest and prompt, it may indicate a certain level of integrity.
3. Take up a free trial:
If the service or method offers a free trial, it is always worth trying this before you commit to buying the betting system or joining the service. During the free trial period, follow the advised bets by paper trading and tracking the results, or by using minimal stakes. The largest cost of buying a betting system that does not work will not be in the initial purchase, but in the hundreds if not thousands of pounds wasted placing losing bets.
Following these 3 simple steps when evaluating the merits of any betting system or service could end up saving you a lot more than wasted time.
