A nice little BTTS treble landed yesterday on the blog @ 4.11s for some money back on the day. Not a great deal on today, but I am playing the below.

Also, I think all the EPL games have a decent chance of overs for a play if any fancies it, but it will not be in the PL for the blog so fun stakes only if any play it.

Some Changes – post#1006

Evening Guys

In preparation for 2019 access to the QS will still be free for those that want to exercise that option. However, it will only be for blog members that are subscribed to the blog. As such, I have created a Free entry level sub to the blog. You will still have the same access if you sign up to the blog. Just register via the button on the top menu or on the sidebar.

To be completely honest I am not a pessimist and believe the best in everyone, however, I am sure that QS has been used by other services, old and new, that have been free subscribers on the old model. Some may have even created tipping pages from it? That is a breach of the T&Cs of our website.

The free subscription membership will last for a month at this point, and at this stage you will be able to renew month on month. For those mentioned above, the jury is out.

The old forum log in links have been deleted and the new free blog subscriptions links have been created. They are on the top menu of the blog and on the right sidebar if viewing on PC or Laptop. If on mobile either flip to landscape, click the menu or scroll right down to the bottom of the page.

Why choose Quick Stats? More data = more opportunities. We cover over 500 leagues, with up to 300 data points in each game. It’s completely customisable to your preference, not mine, not any other tipster’s but your preference. If you understand value then you will appreciate that we are one of the few services that calculates the implied odds versus the actual odds.

You are able to set up filters against specific markets, form, game conditions and much more. Not only are you able to create these filters, you can also set up alerts in Telegram in real time on the games that your filter picks out. You can choose the time you want to be alerted at from your personal bot. You can ask your bot questions regarding games that will be answered instantly.

We also send daily and overnight forecasts based on the QS via telegram, fixtures permitting, and also an elitle league version of the same. The free service in itself is comprehensive, covering > 100 leagues, and again up to 300 data points in each game. We also use Poisson (google it) to calculate xG, xC and xBP in the games we cover, it’s flexible and will adjust to the time period you filter for.

We also have an active and thriving QS channel with plenty of banter, the bot naming was a special moment today.

We do not display stats based on current season only as in my mind this is restrictive. If you did that what would you do in gameweeks 1-4 of the season? So, we filter by monthly values and also as a default by the home at home and the away when away. So by the time you get to November in the English season swapping to the 3 month filter gives you the current season. Prior to that it is still early days in the league and I’d also like to see how they finished the previous season (6 month filter). Promoted/demoted teams usually excluded.

It depends on what you like to play, we cover goals, corners, player cards, team booking points, goalscorers, first goalscorers, HT results, early goals, late goals, teams to win from behind, teams to score before 60, over 1.5 match, over 1.5 team etc. I am not going to list all 300 data points but hopefully it makes sense.

To reiterate, this is not a sales pitch, just a summary of the product, I have not done such a post before, and I apologise as that is a disservice to you. I probably have not covered a third of it in all honesty, but hey here’s the most recent YouTube on how to set up a personal bot (Yes there are YouTube tutorials too).

With due respect, I do not offer a glorified excel spreadsheet but a completely intuitive solution, that you can query and get answers back in real time, based on the historical performance of the teams in the fixture.

As always best of luck wih your plays.

feel free to share, like, dislike, or comment on it!

Oh and we also do HT accas amongst other things.

Unveiling QS V6.0 – post #1004

Evening All 

Yes, we are still developing and improving the product here and assume most will guess from the pic what the new release is all about. PERSONAL NOTIFICATIONS!

That’s right, alerts sent to your device, on almost any market you like to play, on your terms. The game time of the alert, the odds, the market (corners, cards, goals, goalscorers etc etc) at the timein the game you like to dip your toe in. 

Think of this as your personal betting bot that you define. The current TTT notifications package is drilled down to the late goals and teams to score SH, and home favourites losing at home. That’s based on my logic, pre loaded into the notifications. Now you can do the same through QS, all based on the lines you look for in the markets you want and the game time you want to play them!

No more sitting in front of the PC/Laptop/Phone anymore with this. Set up the filter you want to be alerted about and the market you want and you will get notified direct to your device at a time point in the game you specify! 

Opens up a whole new world for those of us that are busy with our day jobs/family etc. The alerts come through via Telegram and they can be pre-set for any market or fixture covered on QS. 

So, without further ado, below is a relatively short (13 minute) help video on how to get started and how to set up personal notifications for yourselves!

This function will be available to all subscribers including free for the rest of the month, and from Jan 1 it will be only available on one of the paid packages.

As always, I wish you all the very best in winning versus the books!

Regards

Mark

Reflections on a journey – POST #1000

Evening All

Yes, this is post #1000 after over 4 years on this blog, which has now turned into so much more. We have to go way back to August 2014 for my initial post https://wp.me/s7BMc3-welcome

Before this site started I was on another blog goalsandfoals with @dangerussbets so the true post count is far higher.

It’s been rewarding, exhilarating and satisfying in terms of helping people to find value on the footy. Also in just getting the value concept across to some. It’s also been arduous and time-consuming outside of my regular work.  We are raising a not so young family and sometimes I reflect on whether the hours put in on here with the research and posting would have been better spent elsewhere. It is what it is and I cannot change the past.

I have written posts on betting strategy and an e-book on finding value. We smashed the Euros and also published World Cup and 2 Premier League betting guides at minimal cost.

I think it was late 2016 that I started the free daily cards in excel, a watch list, or a short list of limited games on the main markets to make small accas from. In late 2017  it swapped to a paid service for the time that it took to research and publish and post the service. This is still running and if interested drop me an email.

In 2017 more and more people understood the goal line market and the advantage it gives us punters. However as more and more got on and the following grew, the eyes stopped as it was killing the prices. To the latter end of 2017 and 2018 it became more of a focus on providing a service where the average punter does not need to rely on a “Tipster”.

Let’s think about that for a minute. Are you reading this as a “Tipster” or as a punter? The inverted commas are for those services that describe themselves as “not a tipster just sharing my bets”, (share it in excel or with your close mates rather than a public platform eh?). If you are a punter and have a reliance on a “Tipster” then you are missing many opportunities. If that works for you, and you are a fan of “mother’s milk”, that’s not a problem, I’d rather invest my time in helping others to be self-reliant on making money on the footy.

The inplay bets slowed down toward the end of 2017, what with work and family commitments and the desire to build something that would truly help us punters when I was not around. It had got to the point where I was sick and tired of the negativity on twitter which coincided with the creation of “TTT community”, invite only and hugely successful. Some of us even met up for World Cup drinks in London, which got the job done.

During late 2017 and early 2018, I was also battling depression which happens to a lot of guys my age apparently – get help if you are not feeling yourself.

So “we” then created Quick Stats, and Quick Stats Notifications. I say “we” as I am not technically gifted enough to create what the site has now. I may have designed the logic but I will be forever grateful to A for building the vision.

So that brings us up to date. This is not a pitch with me selling the service, far from it, more an account of the journey I (we) have travelled over the past 4 years.

The question I always ask with hindsight is, “Would I have done anything differently?”

The simple answer is, “yes 100%”, I would/should have continued with my Inplays, however, my mind was not in the right place. No regrets, it happens.

Let’s look ahead to what the future plans are, I have “encouraged” about 70 members to leave today from my private community to make space for others that will contribute more. So we have some spaces I like to cap it at circa 200 give or take.

We will be doing more stuff on the automated bot and also redefining the pre-loaded filters on QS.  You should also see more prices in the exports now and I will be adding game/filter strat videos to YouTube. QS subs will also have a dedicated TG chat shortly to help discuss bets and plays.

Anyway, watch this space I am personally pleased that we have got to 1000 relevant posts and over 1 million views on the blog. Other future developments are secret squirrel at the moment.

As always, I wish you the best in whatever you play!

Regards

Mark
