“My wife looked at me in a funny sort of way…”
It’s August the 12th, 2020.
Eric is in his living room, glued to the football, with his wife next to him.
He has a bet on PSG to win against Atalanta in the Champions League quarter finals.
French champions PSG were favourites to win.
The bookies had the Paris side odds-on at just 4/7 to go through to the next round.
At those odds, a £10 stake would turn a profit of just £5.71.
But Eric has a much, much bigger price on his side…
Betting in the Half Time/ Full Time market, an area overlooked by many bettors. Tucked away on the bookmakers’ websites (but easy to find if you know where to look)...
Eric is on PSG to be losing at Half Time, and winning at Full Time. At a mouth-watering 25/1…
And that Half Time/ Full Time scenario is not as far-fetched as it might sound.
Because Eric’s bet is based on in-depth research and analysis sent to him by email earlier in the day.
The article in Eric’s inbox includes some fascinating information for big-odds hunters:
Bet placed. Eric sits down to watch the game…
PSG are losing 0-1 at half time.
By the 90th minute, PSG are still losing.
But then – in goes the equaliser and it’s 1-1.
The final whistle is only moments away and the game is deep into injury time…
Eric is about to rip up his ticket in despair when…
PSG score the winning goal.
Suddenly, Eric is dancing around his living room.
That comeback has landed him a huge 25/1 win.
On that night, Eric was not the only one celebrating.
Fiona, who was following the very same advice, did even better…
And William had a nice surprise when he saw the final score, after nipping out to the garden with 88 minutes on the clock…
Punching the air. Dancing around the living room. Not to mention seeing the winnings land in your account. It’s a fantastic feeling…
‘£1,400 – one of my biggest
returns to date…’
Now, those 25/1 and 34/1 winners don’t come along every time. Only a fool or a dreamer would suggest otherwise.
But if you bet smart.
If you bet selectively.
If you bet with intelligent advice on your side…
Then you can land enough of these big prices to win some very nice sums of money.
Those kinds of nights don’t happen every week.
But at odds of 25/1 and 34/1, they don't need to win very often in order to be profitable.
What you DO need, though, is access to the right information…
(I wouldn’t go backing a Half Time/ Full Time turnaround in a Bayern Munich game, for example… between April 2019 and August 2020, it only happened once in 61 games.)
I run a football betting service called Across the Leagues, that will arm you with the most powerful betting weapon there is: knowledge.
And I’d like the opportunity to prove it to you. With your permission, I’d like to show you how this works, risk free, so you can put it to the test.
First, let me introduce myself…
15 years delivering returns by avoiding the obvious bets...
My name is Oliver Upstone. For the last 15 years I've been the man behind numerous profitable World Cup, European Championship, domestic leagues, and Champions League services published by Oxfordshire Press.
I've spent thousands of hours poring over stats, providing in-depth match previews and advice that's delivered consistent returns for my readers.
I've been involved with football publications, websites, and betting services, from 2005 to the present day. If you were to do a word count of everything I've written over the years, I believe I've hit the one million words mark.
My aim has always been to alert ordinary bettors to the fact that there is so much more to football betting than who the bookies think will win, draw or lose a match.
As each year has passed, my knowledge and experience has grown. And along with the hours of painstaking research, my intuition has grown, too. Allowing me to look at things differently to other bettors and other tipsters.
Not home wins, not short-price favourites, not the bets advertised in the bookies' windows and website ads...
I'm talking about hard-earned knowledge, and an eye for spotting profitable patterns, born from multi-year experience in the betting trenches.
Using my experience from a decade and a half in these markets to spot potential winners that ordinary punters, the bookies, and many tipsters would simply overlook.
Today I’d like to invite you to try my service Across the Leagues, in which I steer you to the big odds wins that 'traditional' football bets can't deliver.
It completely ignores the obvious markets the bookies want punters to bet on…
Instead, I help you make money from obscure, creative angles that can deliver big wins.
25/1 and 33/1 shots CAN and DO win...
BUT you need to do your homework. Or listen to someone who has...
For example, that 25/1 winner in the PSG vs Atlanta match was not the first time I’ve flagged up a tasty big Half Time/ Full Time bet for members…
We did it in last season’s Champions League, too.
On that famous night when Tottenham came from 0-2 down to beat Ajax, 3-2..
And the Half Time/ Full Time market is just ONE area that I target with my betting angles.
Drawing on knowledge, experience and intuition and insight, honed over 15 years in the industry.
Not to mention an extensive stats database, covering hundreds of teams and thousands of matches… (more on that, and how YOU can access it, in a moment).
Before I explain, I need to ask you something:
CAN YOU IGNORE THE NOISE?
If you’re a football fan and like a bet, then chances are, you’ve encountered dozens of ‘tipsters’ and ‘systems’…
The internet, Facebook and Twitter are full of them.
They promise you the earth. Must win bets from their unnamed ‘source.’ They have sure-fire winners waiting for you.
If those statements make you cringe as much as they make me do. Then you’re in the right place.
When it comes to football betting, let me tell you where I’m at:
There’s no magic system.
No miracle formula.
No overnight riches.
There’s no crystal ball.
There’s no bookie loophole.
No ‘barely legal’ betting code.
There’s no football ‘cash machine.’
If phrases like that set your bulls**t detector off, then good. Excellent. You and I are going to get along just fine…
Because if you can ignore the hype, and tune out all that NOISE.
If you can block out the fountain of nonsense spouted endlessly into your inbox and text messages.
Then there really are ways to make money from football. And what’s more, you can increase your enjoyment of the sport, and bolster your football & betting knowledge, while you’re at it…
Demand more for your money...
There are no shortcuts to being a successful bettor.
Sure, every now and then, a tipster will give you a winner. I call this the ‘brown envelope’:
Here’s the bet. There you go. A name, and some odds. That’s it. That’s your lot. Win or lose. Happy or bust.
Here’s a real example that I saw last season:
Is this what you want? Are you happy with that?
Don’t you want to know why Perugia should be backed, at this particular price, and in this particular match?
Wouldn’t you like some kind of explanation as to why you should be risking your hard-earned money?
Maybe the other team have got injury problems… maybe their star striker is suspended… perhaps they’re about to sack their manager?
And even if it comes in, what have you got? A small return and no understanding of what made it a potential bet. Should you back Perugia again? Win or lose you are left with nothing to increase your understanding of betting on that team, and that league.
Tap into USEFUL information that alerts you to 16/1, 20/1 and 33/1 opportunities...
If that ‘brown envelope’ approach is good enough for you, then that’s fair enough.
If you’re only looking for tips, then you should stop reading now.
Because I’m not a tipster.
I’m an analyst. And I present all my findings, informed opinions, research and conclusions to my readers, in Plain English.
Helping members latch onto betting opportunities that will likely pass most people by.
Like these profitable betting angles, from the 2019/20 season:
New manager has an impact…
After Brendan Rodgers took over at Leicester in the previous season, Vardy had scored 9 goals in 10 games. Just one piece of information in my Premier League Top Goalscorer analysis sent out to members, resulting in this selection:
Jamie Vardy – Premier League Top Goalscorer – WON @ 20/1 Each Way
Winger turned striker at 33/1…
Brentford had sold top scorer Neal Maupay, but hadn’t replaced him.
One-time winger Ollie Watkins stepped up to play as an all-out striker… and ended up finishing the season in 2nd place in the top scorer charts, just one goal off 1st place:
Ollie Watkins – Championship Top Goalscorer – PLACED @ 33/1 Each Way
Taking on Ronaldo at 16/1…
And over in Italy, Juventus’ star man Cristiano Ronaldo was the favourite to be top scorer in Serie A. But…
Juventus had won the league eight times in a row – but hadn’t produced the top scoring player in Serie A in any of those seasons. Lazio striker, and former Golden Boot winner, Ciro Immobile, was earmarked as an outsider to take on Ronaldo…
Ciro Immobile – Serie A Top Goalscorer - WON @ 16/1 Each Way
The list goes on.
So far, I’ve told you about bets and angles from just TWO markets, Half Time/ Full Time, and Top Goalscorer.
My weekly analysis, delivered by email to Across the Leagues members, takes in all kinds of bets and opportunities…
From the World Cup final, to the Austrian league...
At the World Cup in Russia 2018, the Official UEFA Man of the Match Award for each game was decided by online fan votes.
Throughout the tournament, the Award went time and time again to goalscorers, playing for the team that won the match (with a couple thrown in for goalkeepers playing a blinder, too)…
During the 32 day tournament, I recorded every single winner of the online Man of the Match public vote for every single game in search of a pattern (I had my own Man of the Match spreadsheet)...
And this 'angle' proved to be very profitable. Culminating in a winner in the biggest match on the planet. With the 7/1 price more than double what you’d have got for this player to score a goal in the game (which he went on to do):
World Cup Final – Antoine Griezmann to be Man of the Match – WON @ 7/1
It’s not all glitz and glamour. My analysis takes us all over the footballing map, whether there’s a standout price to had, an appealing underdog to follow, or a little-known player making waves…
June 9th, 2020. The Austrian Bundesliga match between WSG Swarovski Tirol v Mattersburg, played behind closed doors with no fans after the football returned from lockdown:
The bookies had Tirol’s 35-year-old striker as the 4/1 favourite to be First Goalscorer. But my research showed 24-year-old Andreas Gruber was the form player for Mattersburg, landing that bet in in five of his last 15 games.
Andreas Gruber – First Goalscorer – WON @ 6/1
‘An amazing piece of analysis…’
Or how about this Correct Score angle, from League One...
Match favourite Peterborough were short odds-on at just 3/10 to beat Southend. That’s worth just £3 profit from a £10 stake. My research showed that Peterborough’s most common Correct Score when winning was 4-0 – an option available at much bigger odds:
Correct Score – Peterborough to win 4-0 – WON @ 13/1
Advice like that makes good money for followers:
But there is something else you need to know…
You will have more losers than winners...
As that Ronaldo example above shows, the favourites don’t always win. I make the case for outsiders than can deliver at bigger odds.
And even when the favourites do win, as with those PSG or Peterborough games I’ve discussed…
You can still get much, much bigger odds by digging deeper, and avoiding the odds-on Match Result prices for home wins and favourites.
In those instances, making a measured move in the Half Time/ Full Time market, and targeting the Correct Score options.
Across the Leagues deals with quality not quantity in terms of bet advice.
Taking my approach, hunting for off-the-beaten track bets, you’ll have more losers than winners.
Yes, that’s right, more losing bets than winning ones. You don’t hear that very often, do you?
The wins will be at prices that make the waits worthwhile. And more than enough to get in front over the course of a season, a year, and beyond...
It’s a marathon, not a sprint...
Following my service requires big-picture thinking. I can't promise you a winning weekend the first time you join. You need to be committed for the long term. But if you are, then we can aim to build season after season of positive betting returns.
If we place our season-long Top Scorer bets at 16/1, 20/1, 28/1, 50/1 and 66/1...
When we get our league pre-season Outright Winner... Promotion... or Relegation picks down... or FA Cup, Champions League or Europa League bets... scooping up the early-bird value.
Or when we make a move on an eye-catching 4/1, 8/1, 33/1, even 100/1 price opportunity in any number of potential match markets across the footballing world...
We only need the occasional success to put us in front. We won't win every time. We can't win every time. We aim to win in the long term.
I’m not going to make any wild claims or crazy promises. We might land a 6/1 winner this week. Or a 10/1 shot next weekend. Or a 20/1 pick next month.
But what I can guarantee you is this: Across the Leagues will always be giving you informed betting advice, with the quality control set to maximum.
To achieve this, there will certainly be no unimaginative bets at short prices, like Man City to win at home.
In fact, I specialise in the opposite. Using creative betting angles to bring you the kind of big odds winners that 'traditional' football bets simply can't deliver.
You won't find any odds-on bets on home wins here. We'll always be doing something different.
Losing bets have to be taken on the chin. It requires a certain level of mental toughness. If you can’t take losers, then my service isn’t for you.
For example, a couple of seasons ago I backed Notts County to win League Two. And they got relegated. Like I said, there’s no crystal ball.
But when the good days come along, it’s all worth it…
In summer 2020, when the Europa League was completed in a knockout event in Germany. The bookies had Manchester United at the top of their list, at the shortest prices…
But I went against the Premier League side, avoiding Wolves, too. And instead, pinpointing a 16/1 ‘off the radar’ bet from the Name the Finalists market. Mapping out the draw from the quarter finals to the final, and identifying two other teams as the pick of the prices:
Europa League ‘Name the Finalists’ – Inter Milan & Sevilla – WON @ 16/1
Across the Leagues member Russell was on that one:
Or how about this 14/1 First Goalscorer winner on Parma playmaker, Dejan Kulusevski.
The 20-year-old was playing his last home game for Parma, before making a big-money move to Juventus. That knowledge helped pave the way for a profitable pick…
Here’s an extract from the analysis I sent to members that day:

Just like Across the Leagues member Mike F did. Taking the stats, and my notes on Luka Modric being a yellow card contender for the Man City v Real Madrid game in August 2020.
Mike went one step further, and bagged himself a 25/1 winner on Modric getting the First Card of the game…
