The statistical p-value gives a measure of how likely these results could be achieved purely by chance and the lower this figure is the better.

SMALLFIELDPUNTING’s p-value is 0.0005 (to 4 dec.places ).

This indicates its extremely unlikely these results could be achieved by pure chance.


How long will losing streaks be?

The tip Win Rate has been 15% over 944 tips. This gives a very high ELLR (Estimated Longest Losing Run) figure of 26 – in those 944 tips you should have been prepared for 43 losing tips in a row.

Based on the current ROI and tip rate you should anticipate encountering the following:

  • Over the next month: At least one run of 28 losing tips.
  • In the next 3 months: At least one run of 35 losing tips.
  • During the next 6 months: At least one run of 39 losing tips.


The finance industry uses a coefficient of variation calculation to measure how risky an investment is. In simple terms its the ratio of the standard deviation to the mean.

But in even simpler terms its looking at the monthly ROI figures – are they always about the same or do they vary a lot?

If they vary a lot that means performance is volatile and volatility means risk.The coefficent of variation puts a specific number to this risk so that you can compare investments for risk but you can get a sense of how risky/volatile a tipster is just by looking at how much the ROI changes month-on-month.

SMALLFIELDPUNTING‘s coefficient of variation figure is 1.15 indicating performance is stable and risk is low.


Does the subscription cost for this tipster represent value for money?

The monthly subscription cost is £19 which is low. SMALLFIELDPUNTING’s overall ROI of 42% means that each 1% of ROI costs £0.45 which is great value.

Generally, subscriptions costs are typically less per month if you take a 3-month or even 6-month subscription and you can always cancel and get a refund should things not go the way you hoped.


How much am I likely to be betting every day?

The following figures are based on current performance and are provided only to give a sense of scale regarding betting stakes.

To cover subscription costs : £0.80 per point
Based on this 42% ROI from 2 tips a day at the average advised stakes of 1 points you’d need to be betting at £0.80 per point to cover the £19 subscription cost.

To clear £100 profit : £4.80 per point
To make somewhere in the region of £100 clear profit a month, over and above the subscription cost, the staking levels would need to be around £4.80 per point. At this level you’d be betting in the region of £10 a day.


How much money do I need to start with?

The size of Betting Bank required to adequately follow a tipster is based on a combination of the average stake size and the Estimated Longest Losing Run (ELLR).

The formula used here to calculate the size of Betting Bank is: Betting Bank Size = 2.5 x ELLR x Average Bet Stake

This is sufficient to withstand a worst-case scenario of two (2) longest losing runs in quick sucession and still have something left (0.5) to continue betting.

The first month betting bank size for SMALLFIELDPUNTING would be around 80 points.

So, if you were betting at £4.80/pt stakes hoping to make £100 clear profit the Betting Bank would need to be around £350.
