Welcome back to the 2019 Betting System Oscar awards!
Every year, I invite Lay, Back & Get Rich readers to vote for their favourite systems, services and tipsters. Once the votes are tallied, I announce the winner of each category and award a Betting System Oscar.
"Best Football Betting Tipster" is a brand new category.
Feedback from readers last year was that services and tipsters are very different beasts and deserve their own Oscars, so I was very happy to split them up this year for both football and horse racing.
So.. who did Lay, Back & Get Rich readers vote as Best Football Betting Tipster?
This is awkward..
You see, I can't actually declare a winner.
There were plenty of votes and a very clear winner, but I can tell you that Goal Profits is certainly not a tipster service. It's a community of football traders which has a particular emphasis on teaching their members not to rely on tipsters, but to do it for themselves.
Therefore, I disqualified all the votes for Goal Profits and that left me with a number of actual football tipsters, none of whom collected more than 2 votes.
I could have declared a few joint winners, but that really doesn't fit with the point of Betting System Oscars which is to find the best of the best.
Perhaps that says it all, that there isn't a really good football tipster out there.
I remember giving Chloe’s Football Focus a pass, but that service has now been closed.
There appears to be a gap in the market if anyone is good enough to step up and fill it. If you know of any football tipsters worth trialling, please let me know!
