Offered by Oxfordshire Press, Betting Edge is a new tipster service that specialises in providing value selections for a variety of sports.
What is the product?
Betting Edge is a website offering subscribers a somewhat sporadic tipster service, namely as the focus is on value betting. Tips come courtesy of a team of professionals all of whom are involved in betting in some way or another, from employees of bookmakers (in a variety of positions) to professional bettors and sports analysts. Oxfordshire Press, the company behind Betting Edge say that all of these are at the top of their game and all offer something. In terms of the selections themselves, these cover a huge number of sporting events with examples so far in football, tennis and snooker with a host of other sports covered as well. I mentioned that Betting Edge offers somewhat sporadic tips and this evident in the fact that Oxfordshire Press say that their aim is to send out around 5 selections per week. Since its inception at the end of January Betting Edge is some way off this figure with only a handful of bets offered, none of which have won however there are a number of reasons for this. The two most prominent lie in the fact that Betting Edge concerns itself with identifying undervalued bets which is a system that doesn’t return frequent winners. The other and more important point is that all the bets have been betting on winners of tournaments etc. which inherently are a more difficult prediction to make.
What is the investment vs. the rate of return?
Oxfordshire Press are selling Betting Edge on a monthly subscription at a cost of £21.67 per month or alternatively you can buy a whole year of selections for a relative discount at £195. Both options come with a 14 day free trial however Betting Edge doesn’t come with any money back guarantee. In terms of income potential, there are no claims made for Betting Edge (examples in testimonials are from other Oxfordshire Press services) and with no winning bets to date it is difficult to gauge an ROI. That having been said one can guess that Betting Edge isn’t going to pay out often, but when it does it should be a fair amount.
Does the product provide value for money?
At this moment in time Betting Edge absolutely does not represent value for money however I do believe that there is some potential to the service.
It is very early days for Betting Edge with Oxfordshire Press only releasing a month ago and as such I feel that it is only fair to offer some benefit of the doubt. As it stands there is very little here worth looking at. Let’s be honest, a 0% strike rate is a worrying figure and one that no sensible bettor can afford to ignore. All that having been said, I feel like Betting Edge may be worth revisiting in 3-6 months as the advice that has been offered hasn’t been terrible on paper. This suggests that once they find their feet, the Betting Edge team can produce results.
