Welcome – Ten Reasons to Ignore This!

All of the above was written in 2011. Betsfactor became a global phenomenal, regularly attracting upto 50 hits a day from people eager to get incisive analysis on the UK’s favourite Saturday night show. 

So that historians can view this in years to come, I have left what I wrote a two years ago below. Little has changed, I don’t know what I am talking about, but with the Little Mix win and numerous other correct predictions, I like to mess around with the hyperbole.

So, I want to win cash from the X Factor and I want to learn about WordPress and use this as a testbed for all my other diabolical ideas.  Expect Betsfactor to go through redesigns, have ludicrous forums and comments sections that absolutely no one will use, and to be running polling, twitter feedback and other such gimmicks, simply for the learning experience.

Just a few pointers first.

1.  Jade to Win – Last week friends asked for some advice. I said back JADE at 7/1 to win. How’s that doing at the moment? The most important fact to remember is – I don’t know what I am talking about.

October 2013 Edit. Er…. This happened AGAIN. Which is embarrassing isn’t it? And even more proof I don’t have a clue.

2. Gambling is bad. You shouldn’t stake even 10p on these opinions, as I am an idiot who knows little. www.gambleaware.co.uk is a link I’m posting because I don’t know the rules on whether I have to.

3. Wrong = Deleted. Posts where I got it wrong will probably be deleted – posts where I got it right will be highlighted, bragged about, sensationalized and mentioned as frequently as possible. If you’re coming to this in mid November and you can only see one post, I hope that explains why.

4. Tyypos – There will be a staggering amount of grammatical errors, typos, spelling errors and ill thought through opinion.

5. Penis Photos – I’m doing this to learn about WordPress. I will get bored and stop. I will also try and do flashy things with the blog for no sensible reason. One day you might come here and notice that there is a photo quiz of famous Louis’ in history, or twelve embarrassing pictures of my penis I’ve accidentally uploaded whilst attempting to test a new feature.

6. Missing Key Facts – It’s almost certain I will have missed a key fact such as, “that contestant died last week, it was all over the papers” when I post my tips.

7. Stakes – Friends who read this will know I am “risk averse”. So when the blog ends up 22 points up (a return of 2200% on your money), you will assume I’ve made thousands. I will have made £44.

8. Single Figures – The total number of readers of this blog will be lower than 10. Despite in week six, me launching an experimental marketing campaign costing £80,000 to “test social media impacts”.

9. Sofa’s better. There’s a website that does analysis way way better than anything you’ll get here. I’m just doing this for a laugh. It’sSofabet. You should go there right now.

10. I’m an idiot.

Have fun! You can contact me using the page above or call the Betsfactor Podcast 24/7 hotline –  0161 81 82 800.

  1. Dear Mr Betsfactor

    You said “Wrong = Deleted. Posts where I got it wrong will probably be deleted”

    Put just two bullet points earlier Jade to Win.

    Aren’t you going to cleanse this spectacular error in judgment?
