In this Football Master review, I’ll be taking a look at this new football tipping service. I’ll be seeing what makes this tick and if this will hand you enough winners for you to really live ‘The football punters dream’?
What is Football Master?
Football Master has been running on the Betfan platform for around 10 months since April 2019. Much of that time has been spent in a proofing period, so this has really only been live since December.
I wouldn’t normally look at a service this early but there seems to be a lack of decent football tipping services out there and this looked like it might fit the bill.
The website is a bit short on detail both about the tipster and the thinking behind the selections. It does, however, make some of the bigger claims I’ve seen from a football tipping service. At first glance it looks to be the real deal, but what exactly is going to arrive in your inbox?
How does Football Master Work?
In short, a bit of everything. The tipster isn’t following any gimmick but instead, sending out whatever he thinks will make you (and him) the most money. This is a good sign, but it does mean there’s going to be a lot going on.
Singles, doubles and trebles, correct scores, both teams to score and Asian handicaps, they are all here. Any market you can think of in any combination. They are all at reasonable odds and you’ll be staking 4 or 5 pts in total on each bet/acca.
How long does Football Master take to set up?
Before you can dive into all of that chaos, you’ll to get signed up and part with some money. Luckily it won’t take you long (and much less if you’re already a Betfan member). You’ll get a standard welcome email with staking plans, advice on a starting bank then it’s just a case of waiting for the first wave of tips arrive.
Even though these are far from straightforward bets, you should be able to do all of this with your usual bookmakers. You might have to go delving into a few markets you haven’t seen before but the individual steps are quite simple.
How long does it take to use Football Master?
Right, this will vary drastically from one day to another. But, it should never really take more than 15 minutes once you’ve got to grips with any bet types you haven’t placed before. (some are just a case of making all the sections and ticking a couple of boxes).
If you’ve got all of this set up on your phone it will go a lot more smoothly and you can get started with these as soon as they arrive. It might not be too much faster than getting it done on your laptop but should be more convenient.
So there’s a lot going on here and profits were looking OK (130 pts up) at the end of the proofing period – what happened next?
How much can you make with Football Master?
What happened next is it all went a bit wrong. Since then this service has lost 55pts in 50 days and overall profits now sit at 75pts for nearly 10 months. That’s a very poor 7.5 pts on average each month. At £10/pt that’s £75, which doesn’t seem much for placing all of those bets.
Usually, a service that has a lot of accumulators will occasionally have a massive win which makes it all worthwhile. The odds aren’t big enough for that to happen here, even if the win rate was good enough. Which currently, it isn’t.
How much does Football Master cost?
And, that’s before you take fees into consideration. It’s £10 for a week, £30 for 28 days, £84.50 for three months or £143 for six months. Once you factor those in, that’s a third of your profits gone. I see 10%-20% of profits going on fees as reasonable, and this is way over that.
It would take a couple of disastrous months to blow a 100pt bank, so you should be OK. By the same token, this service would have to have a couple of very good months to make it worthwhile.
Football Master Review Advantages
On the plus side, there’s enough going on to keep you interested. If you’re new to tipping and only really worked your way through bookies offers before, this will be an education. You’ll experience a few new types of bet and visit some areas of bookies websites you haven’t seen before.
Football Master Review Disadvantages
You may also be wondering why you bothered. The profits are very poor for what is (for a tipping service anyway) quite a lot of work. If the profits had carried on at the same rate as the proofing period, this would have just about been worthwhile. As things stand though, you’ll just be wasting your time.
Football Master Review Conclusion and Overall Rating
Which is a real shame. I wanted this to be good and on paper it is. The whole idea of turning low priced, safeish bets into profits by using them in accumulators just hasn’t worked. At the moment this just isn’t good enough so I’ll have to recommend you steer well clear for now.
