Don’t get schooled by Vegas, learn to bet like a pro

Price: Basic registration is free – Baseball course is US$37. Price was £23.34 on 13 June 2011

Money Back Guarantee: No – as payment is via paypal.

What Do You Get?

– Access to a members’ area for the basic registration. This includes news updates and a forum but they appear to be several months out of date and little used. There do not seem to be any free tutorials despite the assertions on the home page and the only course available is the premium Baseball offering.

Where To Buy:

Brief Summary:

Sports Betting Academy by Frank Benjamin and Evan Abrams is a sports betting advice service. At present (June 2011) very little is available to view – only the Baseball course available which is covered in the review.

What’s It All About?

Looks like it tried to be a Big Mike style betting site but has got off to a false start. Now it could hardly be from lack of funds as these 2 are very successful bettors in their own right (they said so!) so it must be they want some of our money to set up the site properly. But even their affiliate links don’t work so its going to take a long time.

How Much Money Do I Need To Get Started? 

Nothing specific indicated.

How Much Money Can I Make? 

Very difficult to quantify as many strategies offered.

How Much Time Will I Need To Make This Work?

Significant – course several hours of audio before studying own form to select bets.

Will I Need Any Equipment To Do This? 

PC and Internet connection – material held ion their website and not downloadable.

Value For Money?  

Not really. See review comments below.

Quality Of Customer Service?  

Not tested.

Review 24/06/2011

You might expect an Academy to pay attention to the spelling and grammar on its website but when the welcome message says Thank you for your PURCAHSE you just get that feeling that attention to detail may be lacking.

Anyway it is then 6 more clicks of confirmation and registration messages before you are taken to the actual course material.

This includes a weekly podcast which is really a review of the baseball matches but they have only managed to get this out on week 1 so far and we are currently at week 12 in the season.

The podcast is the 2 guys chatting about their views on the matches and is completely unstructured and pure opinion interspersed with a large number of ums, you knows and errs.

A final view of “we shall just have to see how this goes” was really helpful. Frankly it was 22 minutes of absolute rubbish and I would be surprised if these views are not available free elsewhere.

The writer is not a baseball fan or bettor but understands what the game is about and so the rest of the course content was treated as trying to understand the potential for users to make profits from the sport as a result of making use of the information.

The modules are all presented as audio files and again are discussions between the 2 authors. The presentation style is poor but there is some help from the powerpoint slides that are used with the talking, without which you would be in a total mess. It is not even clear from the content page which is the right order in which to listen to the segments.

There are 5 of them at present and they vary in time from about 25 minutes up to nearly an hour. If you are not au fait with the general betting terminology used in the states you will struggle even more to benefit from this product.

Naturally the odds explanations are all relating to the American system of betting as well.

There are clearly a large number of special situations that can apply to baseball – for example the walk off rule can have an effect on the bet as can the starting pitchers and I heard nothing here that is going to educate those that do not have that sort of knowledge and understanding in advance.

I am sure that these modules have been put together with the best of intentions but at the end of the day I could not say that I had any more real idea of where to start to make my own baseball selections.

The authors spend most of their time analysing form and it seems to me that you would have to do the same to allow you to choose your own bets. If you want to do this I suspect there are more effective ways of achieving that than this service offers.

There is no way I could recommend this product to an ordinary UK punter – it may – and it is a big MAY – have value if you are already a Baseball fanatic but my general impression is that it is long on thought and short on fact.

I also have the horrible suspicion that there are going to be a lot more marketing emails winging their way to my inbox!

With no guarantee available I would not risk your money on this so called academy.
