Football Bank Builder Review

Lay Back & Get Rich betting system review

Hello, Paulo here again. And it’s about time for the final report on my Football Bank Builder trial!

After 13 weeks we reached the usual goal of 200 bets, more exactly 203 bets in this case.

So… what have we learned from this interesting experiment?

Football Bank Builder

Football Bank Builder

First, this system, FBB, is one of the easiest to implement that I know!

It is both quick and easy to find the games where we can use the system, as the rule set is so simple and straightforward.

Second, despite its simplicity, FBB seems to have been built on top of some well founded reasoning… At least, most of the logic behind the system is consistently demonstrated by practical results.

And third… It looks like the concept of slow, but steady, bank building is in fact perfectly achievable by FBB.

But what do we have to support those assumptions?

Well… Since our last report we had 63 bets, winning 31 of them! Thus achieving a strike rate of 49.2% and for the first time a profit at level stakes! 4.63 units in this period!

Still, for the whole trial, bank nº1 shows a loss of 9.65 units, or 48.25% from the starting 20 units.

This is not what I would expect, and I’m confident that in a longer period it will at least break even. And that’s because the strike rate we achieved along the trial is well below the level one would expect from the average odds of our bets! In the longer term it will get better than the measly 42.36% we got!

Bank nº2 made us a profit of 13.37 units in these 4 weeks, and stands now at 192.12, a growth of 9.16% from the 176 units we started with! It doesn’t seem too much, does it? But it is a profit achieved under the already mentioned circumstances of a lousy strike rate that can only get better in the long run.

It looks like the author of the system is quite right in recommending this staking plan!

And what about our bank nº3?

This one was in a very bad shape at one point. After two losing runs, near each other, this staking plan was reset and the losses at that moment were close to 50 units! Almost one third of the bank was gone!

But since, with not many more noticeable losing runs, this somewhat aggressive staking plan did recover all those losses! And even managed to get us a profit of 2.58 units!! 🙂

Maybe bank 3 is not for everyone, as it is a bit more risky than the Fibonacci plan, but it certainly is capable of producing some great returns.

OK here are the results for the last four weeks….

fbb

In conclusion, Football Bank Builder seems to be a useful system to have in your betting portfolio!

Using it in conjunction with the recommended staking plan, it has the potential to return some very nice profits!

And, of course, compounding these profits will only make the system even more appealing along the time… 😉

That’s all I have to say about “football bank building“…. it’s into the Passed Systems folder with FBB!

Update: 10th January 2014

Hello, Paulo here once more. And it’s time for another report on my Football Bank Builder trial.

This time, I am back with the results for weeks 6 to 9. We’re well past the halfway stage now, so a clearer picture is beginning to emerge.

So… how did FBB fare during these 4 weeks of lousy weather right across Europe?

Not much better than said weather, I’m afraid… 🙁

We added another 60 bets to our trial, which now stands at 140 in total.

The strike rate improved another little bit, with 25 winning bets representing a 41.67% hit rate for the period, bringing the total S/R to 39.29%.

But this is far from enough to deliver profits at level stakes!

Which is why our Bank Number 1 (Level Stakes) keeps sliding down, and has already lost 76% of its starting 20 units!

It will probably go bust before the end of trial! 🙁

Unless, of course, Lady Luck decides to gives us a helping hand… 🙂

Other Staking Plans

I’m pleased to say that the recommended staking plan, Fibonacci, is showing us a better face, and actually managed to provide us with a small profit for the month!

3.75 units! And it means we are actually in the black with this one! 🙂

Yes indeed, Bank Number 2 (Fibonacci) stands now at 178.75 units. Which represents a profit of 1.56% over our starting position of 176 points

So… what about Bank Number 3 (‘2 Steps Back’)!?

Well… this staking plan can be a great way for improving profits…

But we really need a decent strike rate. Otherwise, ordinary losing runs of 5 or 6, stacked near each other, can be very dangerous to our bank!

We actually saw this sort of thing happen in my last report.

But right now, 2 Steps Back is performing as expected and doing its thing, slowly recovering from previous losses.

Over the last 4 weeks, it has shown a profit of 19.59 units, and stands now at 161.92. This is still 8% down since the start, but is much better than its lowest point of 107.85.

Update: 8th December 2013

Hi there, Paulo here with the latest instalment of my Football Bank Builder trial!

Football Bank Builder

Football Bank Builder

After a first week showing a good profit across all three of our betting banks, now my story is of an entirely different kind…

Over the last four weeks I managed to place 60 bets. Every day there was at least one opportunity to put the system to work, and there were a few days when I could have placed a lot more, but I kept to the limit of 3 bets a day.

From these 60, only 23 won! Meaning a strike rate of 38.33%.This was actually slightly better than last time, but still awfully low for our needs! 🙁

Even worse: a losing run of eight tested the limits of FBB‘s Fibonacci staking plan!

The good news is it survived the test, but the more aggressive ‘2 Steps Back’ approach was not able to sustain one such long streak right after another one that we hadn’t yet totally recovered from!

Meaning… our bank number 3 suffered a nasty blow, dropping to just 126 units at one point (against a starting position of 176!).

However, since that dreadful week, and despite a less than friendly strike rate, those two staking plans have been slowly healing their wounds and recovering from the depths of the abyss!

In fact, they recouped about 53 units since the lowest point… which goes to show there probably is some merit in using them!

Unfortunately, we cannot say the same about the level stakes bank. This one keeps going down and down. And will stay that way unless and until our strike rate gets to a level firmly above 46%.

So, in this period, all three FBB banks sustained losses.

Nr 1 lost 6.77 units; Nr 2 lost 2.5 units, and Nr 3 lost 49.58 units!!

Which gives us a total loss for the month of 58.85 units in total! Bringing our banks to a combined loss of -15.82% in this period. 🙁

That means we are now down 44.52 units, or -11.97% overall, since the beginning of our trial. 🙁

The complete results log for the last four weeks makes for uneasy reading…

Update: 10th November 2013

Hi there, Paulo here with the first report on my brand new trial of …. Football Bank Builder!

Football Bank Builder

Football Bank Builder

 

I was in fact meaning only to do my first report after one month, but as I was so kindly asked by Lucy, how could I refuse?!

And this trial certainly looks an interesting exercise!

After just one week, we don’t yet have much data to work with. In fact, we’ve just reached 20 bets so far. Which is more or less what is to be expected each week, if we follow the system’s recommendations!

I’m working with three separate banks for three staking plans: one starting at 20 units, and two of 176 units each! But the FBB manual recommends £352 for a minimum starting bank, which equates to 176 units of £2, obviously.

So, Is Football Bank Builder Easy To Use?

So far, selections have proved to be quick and easy to find! And with rules as simple as these, there is no room for subjectivity! Either a game is eligible.. or it is not!

However, things become a bit more complicated if you are not able to monitor the odds closer to the off. They can have quite significant movements which can lead to a match becoming not eligible for the system.

Another point to make is: As we operate two recovery staking plans, a match must come to an end before we can bet in the next one. Unless, our bet is already closed during the game. Which, as it happens, is a pretty frequent event!

Football Bank Builder proposes a solution for this. However, for the purpose of our trial, I’ll stick to the simpler solution and just place bets after knowing the previous one result!

Of course, on days with fewer football games to search through, it may be difficult to find three of them between the boundaries of the system’s criteria that don’t overlap in time. That’s why there are days with just one or two bets.

So, what about the results?! What have we found so far?

Well… Surprisingly, things started nicely with two wins! But then, just when I though Football Bank Builder had escaped Lucy’s New Triallist’s Curse, we had six losses in a run! Just to test our stomach, of course! And the recovery plans… those too…

Which was a bit scary, I can tell you, seeing those bets escalating at an alarming rate. 🙁

But one must trust a system designer who has already proved himself in the past. And things eventually came to our side. Thanks to Mr. Kayabasi, who scored for Balikesirspor right before half-time!

Yes, we also bet on those games between teams whose names one cannot spell correctly! After all, they are not on the exempt list from Football Bank Builder, are they?! 🙂

Since then, there have been no more loooooong losing runs, But no winning runs either.

That’s why our strike rate looks so miserable right now!…  After 20 bets we won 7! Just 35%!! 🙁

Which of course is not good for our flat stakes bank!

And we need a strike rate of 47% to make a small profit if the average odds of our bets are 1.82 (as claimed by the system’s author). We have achieved a slightly lower odds average, but with a not yet significant number of bets.

The good news is: Even with such a lousy strike rate, our Fibonacci and 2 Steps Back banks are holding up firmly! But thats what they were devised for… right? 🙂

Summary

Overall, the three banks have us 14 units up!! Which is much better than I expected, considering that I believe the strike rate will eventually improve to over 40% for sure!

And summarizing our first week, we had 20 bets, winning 7 of them!

We had a loss of -3.08 units at flat stakes (bank lost 15.4%), but a profit of 1.5 units using the Fibonacci staking plan (bank up 0.85%), and a very nice profit of 15.91 units using the “2 steps back” staking plan (bank up 9.04%)!

In total, we had a profit of 14.33 units and a global bank winning 3.85%.

Not bad for one week, uh?

Now, if only it keeps this way from now on… 😉

And that’s it for today!

I’ll be back early in December with my next report on Football Bank Builder. If I manage to keep my arms out of danger, that is… 😛

Paulo.


Original Introduction: 29th October 2013

Ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you the sales page of a product with a very uncomplicated pitch…. Football Bank Builder! –>

 

Football Bank Builder

Football Bank Builder

 

Yes, there are some pretty bold claims here.

Not content with plastering £20 notes all over your screen, the Football Bank Builder sales page asks you the undoubtedly-appealing-but-decidedly-rhetorical question, “How would YOU like to turn £1,000 into £3,138.43 in 12 months and into an amazing £30,912.68 in just 36 months?”

Well, now you mention it… it would be kinda nice.

The eagle-eyed amongst you may also recognise that sales page background.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, just hop over for a moment to the sales page for a well-known horse racing system here.

Fishy, ain’t it!? 🙂

And indeed, having read both systems, I think I can fairly confidently state that, if you liked Little Acorns, there’s a good chance you’ll like Football Bank Builder too.

Not only are they products from the same stable, but they share certain characteristics….

  • low initial seed capital
  • slow bank-building
  • exploitation of compounding principles
  • careful selection principles.

So, we like it then, huh?

Not so fast.

There are a couple of important differences.

Most obviously, Little Acorns has been around for ages, picking up awards for years. Whereas FBB is brand spanking new.

Secondly, the selection criteria for FBB are, dare I say, somewhat puzzling.

For although Little Acorns exploits the notorious unpredictability of horse racing, I still don’t fully understand the reasoning behind one of the key selection criteria within Football Bank Builder.

I’m not saying the manual isn’t clear.

On the contrary, the screenshots in the manual spell the selection criteria out with commendable clarity.

I’m just saying I don’t understand the logic that underpins one of them.

So I guess we’d better test it then?

Yes indeedy.

Let me therefore welcome back an experienced tester in Paulo.

Is Football Bank Builder the answer?

We shall see!

First though, I will ask Paulo to add his first impressions as soon as he’s got through the manual…

And then, we’ll go for my usual 200 bets.

I expect this to be absolutely fascinating.

Lucy
