Oddscatcher.com Review – Regular Tax Free Income Or Regular Loss?
The promotional video for Oddscatcher states that you will make a regular profit once you become a member of Oddscatcher. By all accounts the system will guide you, teach you, and show you how to take advantage of betting loopholes. Too good to be true or is Oddscatcher the real deal?
How it Works
Once you login it is clear Oddscatcher has a lot of features. It is clearly aimed at the serious punter. Fortunately, the tutorial videos are easy to follow and explains what to do well. When starting, Oddscatcher recommends using at least seven bookmakers and Betfair for back to lay opportunities. It is also possible to add more than one account with one bookmaker.
Once you have set up your bookie accounts it is time to take a look at Arbs. The idea is that you filter horse races for as fewer runners as possible. The system then brings in the odds from your chosen bookmakers for the runners. You select the best odds and then place a bet on all of them. The system shows you the winning percentage for each horse.
All sounds good so far. There are two factors you need to be aware of:
You cannot place bets from using Oddscatcher. You have to head over to the site to place the bet.
You have to be wary of bookmakers becoming alerted to the system.
To ensure your profits are maximised the system shows the best odds guaranteed. This means that should the odds rise, your profits increase. This can make a big difference to your returns.
Back to Lay
Back to Lay allows you to back a horse at a fixed price, and then use the feature to back the same horse at a lower price with Betfair. This brings up other options such as under lay, balanced lay, over lay, or set your stake, which should allow you to cover all bases in terms of return.
In theory you should be able to make a return on every race. Small margins but a return is a return.
The other feature of Oddscatcher is that they devote a feature to Bet 365 Feature Races offer. Should your horse win at odds greater than 4-1, they give you a free bet of up to £50. According to Oddscatcher this can be highly profitable.
The idea is that you stake a price on odds of horses of 4-1 or greater, and then lay the same stake on a similar price on a betting exchange. This way should the horse you lose, you do not lose anything from the exchange, and if you win you receive £50 in free bets.
To use the Oddscatcher software you are looking at £57 per month, and this provides you with an opportunity to their Market Movers section for £17 per month, which if you’re a serious punter is something you should consider.
The theory seems pretty solid behind Oddscatcher, providing you know what you are doing. It is designed for the serious punter who works on percentages and takes a measured approach to betting. It has an added advantage of taking a lot of emotion out of betting which has been the downfall of many a punter.
It comes with a range of tutorials and helpful videos, so getting a grasp of it should not take too long.
Using Oddscatcher you won’t suddenly get rich, but with careful choices you should see a profitable return.
In summary Oddscatcher.com is well worth a look.
