Created by Mark “The Couch” Winstanley, The Couch – Sport of Kings is a brand new, specialist horse racing tipster service that has literally just been launched by Betfan’s Tipster TV arm.
What is the product?
The Couch – Sport of Kings is being billed as betting with the “No.1 Bookie Tormentor” Mark “The Couch” Winstanley on your side. As a brand new service there isn’t a whole lot of information available about The Couch – Sport of Kings however there are some details that paint a picture. For example, the promotional email sent out by Betfan claims that you The Couch – Sport of Kings subscribers will typically receive “4/5 of the very best betting opportunities each week”. Looking at Mark “The Couch” Winstanley’s previous efforts as a horse racing expert with Tipster TV however one can get a feel for what to expect from The Couch – Sport of Kings, most likely each way and win bets.
The selection process isn’t something that Tipster TV particularly delve into however they do divulge some information. Much of The Couch – Sport of Kings seems to be built on Mark “The Couch” Winstanleys’s contacts within horse racing with various mentions made of this. On top of this there is also his knowledge which given the various (and in some cases rather prestigious) positions he has held is pretty significant.
Talking numbers I would anticipate the usual Betfan staking plan of up to 5 points per bet. The strike rate is very much an unknown quantity due to the fact that The Couch – Sport of Kings hasn’t been around for long however Tipster TV’s last three months has achieved a very respectable 35%, purely on horse racing.

Does the product provide value for money?
Personally I’m not entirely sold on the value for money aspect of The Couch – Sport of Kings for a number of reasons I shall explore below.
The Couch – Sport of Kings is not Mark “The Couch” Winstanley’s first foray into operating a tipster service and if you look at the response to his old service, it is less than flattering. That having been sad The Couch – Sport of Kings is something new and as a managed service may resolve a lot of the problems from last time.
In my opinion The Couch – Sport of Kings has the potential to be one of the better quality tipster services out there however I would give it time to see how things pan out before investing.
