Yes our membership has increased since our Hall of Fame ranking in SBC but not significantly. I would also like to state the membership size has not reached the heights our sister site iBetValue enjoyed in early 2011 and they experienced little pressure on prices in very similar leagues.
For the number of tips that prices fall there are still prices raising in games. Hopefully our membership is betting at even stakes so why would this be the case? From this weekend Chicago v New England was quoted at 1.8 with Bet365 and pretty much stayed there for 12 hours while 1.9 was easily achievable with other bookmakers. However the Coritiba v Cruzerio game was a different matter, Bet365 was quoting 2.3 and our tip was posted at 2.1. This price continued to fall fast all the way to kick off where the best price was 1.87. Why??? I'm convinced this wasn't the result of our members placing bets but other tipsters or syndicates finding out the same teams news I had. There is no way this game would have been picked on form alone so was their other inside information available?
Some unanswered questions
1. Why did the Chicago game go up in price if our tips are driving prices down?
2. Are some of our new members betting mega bucks... I'm talking 2-3k per bet?
3. Why did the Coritiba game fall so fast?
4. Are the majority of prices returning to what I quote nearer kick off?
5. Who will win the English Premier League? ;o)
At this stage I certainly don't have all the answers and plan to monitor this with your help. I want to keep this an attractive service where you as members can at the very least get the prices I quote from Bet365.
I welcome your comments and help...
