Offered as a part of the Bet Kudos stable of tipsters, Summer Soccer Predictor is a specialist tipster service that provides sports betting selections exclusively over the summer months.
What is the product?
Summer Soccer Predictor is something of an interesting tipster service when compared to the majority on the market. This is because the (anonymous) tipster behind the service has to apply his “powerful system” for around 6 months of the year. As you can guess from the name Summer Soccer Predictor is based around football betting and because of the time scale in which selections are offered there is a focus on Scandinavian (mostly Danish, Swedish and Norwegian) and American MLS. The selection process for Summer Soccer Predictor isn’t something that is covered in any substantial detail however according to Bet Kudos the tipster has a long history in the betting industry. This includes a significant amount of time working for a well known bookmakers as well as some time spent as a Football Odds Compiler. Looking at the details of Summer Soccer Predictor, the service takes advantage of a number of different bet types, mostly based around various goal markets. Staking wise you can expect the usual Betfan approach of staking 1-5 points per bet. It is worth noting that there isn’t too much risk of bank exposure despite this as actual bets are somewhat sporadic. Unfortunately Bet Kudos haven’t published a strike rate for Summer Soccer Predictor however in light of the fact that just 2 of the last 6 months were profitable this isn’t a huge deal.
What is the investment vs. the rate of return?
Bet Kudos charged £72 (plus VAT) for the whole season this year (Mid-March to September). Alternatively you can pay £24 per month (plus VAT) for the selections. As a Betfan product there isn’t really any money back guarantee in place unfortunately. They say that they do not usually offer refunds to customers however they do consider requests. In terms of the profit (or lack thereof), Summer Soccer Predictor stands at an overall profit for the last 4 years of 259.54 points.
Unfortunately the season that has just past has made a loss of 77.51 points (building on a decline starting last year).
Does the product provide value for money?
Whilst it is pretty fairly priced, the recent performance of Summer Soccer Predictor stops it being value for money.
There are two things that I feel are fundamentally potential issues with Summer Soccer Predictor. The first is that any serious bettor that currently has a football tipster will likely continue to receive selections through the summer. The more pressing matter is the rather abysmal performance that has been put in. Over 6 months to £10 stakes you would be down over £800 including subscription fees, and this simply isn’t good enough for any tipster service.
The decline doesn’t seem to be anything new either with results seeming to be rather shaky towards the back end of last season too. With that in mind I’d be inclined to give Summer Soccer Predictor a rather wide berth personally.
