infogol World Cup Tips – Final Update

So the world cup is over for another 4 years and France have won the trophy they last won 20 years ago. There were plenty of upsets during the finals, which makes it encouraging to see that infogol managed to return a profit with 2 of their tipping methods.

Prediction

Their prediction of a Belgium v England final was wide of the mark, with both teams losing out in their respective semi-finals. infogol bounced back with correct predictions for both the final and the 3rd place playoff game.

Overall from the 64 games played during the tournament they returned a profit of +7.59 points, backing each of their predictions to 1 point level stakes at the Betfair price on offer at the time I grabbed their tips. It’s likely a slightly larger profit could have been achieved by shopping around the various bookmakers for the best odds available.

So had you bet each prediction with £10, you’d have made a profit of £75.90, having staked a total of £640. That’s a profit on turnover of 11.86%.

Analyst Verdict

Things were not as good for the Analyst Verdict tips. Again the tips for the semi-finals went the opposite to their analysis, but they were correct for the final and 3rd place playoff matches.

Overall from the 64 games played they made a loss of -2.50 points, backing each of their predictions to 1 point level stakes. It’s likely the loss could have been reduced some what by shopping around the various bookmakers for the best odds available.

So had you bet each prediction with £10, you’d have made a loss of -£25, having staked a total of £640. That’s a loss on turnover of -3.9%.

* The profit/Loss figure is reduced by 0.5 points from the previous update, as on review I noticed an error with one of the previous prices.

Breaking down the figures based upon their value ratings, gave the following:

  1. -4.82 points
  2. +0.39 points
  3. +2.83 points
  4. +2.10 points
  5. -3.00 points

A bit of a small sample, especially with the 5 rated tips, where there was only 3 tips, but potentially interesting, if you avoided the 31 tips, which they only gave a value rating of 1, the rest of the tips would have returned a profit.

Value

As with the Prediction and Analyst Verdict tips, they saw value in wins for Belgium and England. There was no value tips for the final or 3rd place playoff games.

Overall from the 64 games where they had a Value tip, they made a profit of +3.60 points, backing each of their predictions to 1 point level stakes. Again it’s likely a slightly larger profit could have been achieved by shopping around the various bookmakers for the best odds available.

So had you bet each prediction with £10, you’d have made a profit of £36, having staked a total of £350. That’s a profit on turnover of 10.29%.

Breaking down the figures based upon their value ratings, gave the following (they didn’t give any 1 or 2 rated value bets):

  1. 0 points
  2. 0 points
  3. +10.05 points
  4. -5.45 points
  5. -1 points

Again too small a sample to read anything too significant, but interesting that the profit came from their lower rated value bets, with those rated 4 and 5 making a loss.

Summary

Good overall performance, especially from the prediction tips. Certainly worth further investigation and an app I’ll be taking a further look at come the start of the football season.
