Word from the Founder

Welcome to Bet on Combat, the world’s premier combat sports hedge fund.

Congratulation on taking the first step to creating an effective and prosperous sports wagering portfolios, either as your primary form of investment or as a way of diversifying your current portfolios

Just in case you don’t know me, I want to take a few minutes to introduce myself. My name is Franco Richard better known as Francombat and I am the founder and Chief Investor Officer of the most unusual organization in the gaming sector. If you haven’t heard about me before, I am the guy from Montreal, Quebec who dropped out of college and started to bet his own money on the outcomes of fights and became a multi-millionaire by the age of 27. Yes you heard that right, betting thousands of dollars on combat sports. You may have heard the story how I turned $17,450 into a cool $3.7 Million dollars over a couple years (I've made more since then). Because of my success, I’ve been featured by every major business and financial media outlet and hired as oddsmaker and consultant for some of the world’s top sports books from Las Vegas to Antigua to Macau. I've also been on various radio stations, morning news shows, and television networks discussing combat sports betting.

I’m a huge fan of combat sports and have been since the early day of Mike Tyson and have followed all the MMA events since the sport got its start back in 1993. I was hooked. I couldn’t get enough of it. I spent countless hours watching my favorite fighters and learning about their every strength and weakness. So much so, that I had a ledger in which I'd pick who I thought would win a fight before it happened, mark the fighters name down in a book and keep stats on my performance! This was before I was even aware that you could bet on fights. I guess it could be said that I was born for this!

After years of debating with my buddies on topics ranging from who the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world is to who is going to win the upcoming heavyweight title fight, I wanted to create a forum where I could share my opinions on such topics as well as keep track records of my fight betting predictions and to aid my discipline. I also wanted to do something to help the credibility of the betting profession in general. I have always made predictions in my mind anyway. After a while I realized I was pretty good at it, so eventually I decided to write my pick down and share it with the world. And thus, BetonCombat.com was born.

People started noticing my results and talking about my story and before long I had people telling me they would be willing to pay for my fight picks. Instead of selling my predictions to the public, from my ability to predict the outcomes of fights success has led me to start the world's premier combat sports managed fund with its own set of guidelines (i.e. low risk, high risk, money lines, underdogs, etc.). I have envisioned this would once in for all bring legitimacy to the sports handicapping world. Instead of claiming great records and win percentages, we simply point to the performance of our fund. An investor in the fund would have the advantage of getting the best lines and built in money management. It did not take long for investors list to grow. In fact, those lucky enough to have tailed me since 2004 have won over 650 documented fights in that period of time. Transparency is paramount for someone in my position. I will never put out a play I didn't bet myself. I will never issue a play on a number I didn't get myself. My hedge fund went on to become recognized as an exciting new alternative to traditional investment. A client list of 100 "high net worth individuals" whose minimum bet is $5000.00 invested.

It took me a fair amount of capital to strike out on my own and have no other source of income. As a professional combat sports betting investor, I approach combat sports betting just like buying stocks, futures, options, or investing in general that is why I refer to combat sports betting as “Investing." I don’t like to use the word gambling much. As paradoxical as it sounds, I'm not a big proponent of gambling. I like to think when I wager it’s with a huge edge every time I make a play on a fight. Just like investing in the stock market I, as do all successful sports bettors, bet numbers, not fighters. This industry is about finding value, and thus the greater the advantage I feel I have, the stronger the stance I take with my bet size. As a rule of thumb I recommend my investors to only risk 1% to 5% of their bankroll on each play. By bankroll I mean the money a combat sports bettor set aside and is comfortable to use for betting purposes and not your whole bankroll.

When it comes to handicapping, I analyze every variable and aspect of a fight in an attempt to put each fighter on equal footing and I implement a smart bankroll management strategy to help my investors’s profit long term. When I score fights I score both who I think is winning and who "seems" like they're winning. As a 2-time Shuai Jiao Gold Medalist (Chinese-style wrestling) and Kuoshu-style Lei Tai fighting Silver Medalist, I feel I have a deeper understanding of the mental aspects of the fight game. Practicing martial arts allows me to obtain the most intricate details in every facet of the combat sports. My success is due to the hours I study footage on each fighter to ensure complete familiarity with their styles and tendencies, and because I follow the principles of sports investing. As long as a sports bettor can successfully pick 55% of his plays, I believe it can be a profitable investment. Next, all my predictions are systematically run through a coded system that rates every relevant aspect of a fight. This way there is both a human and computer element to my predictions, with 100% transparency, and one definite goal: provide the most accurate and profitable predictions. I’m not going to just say I’m a successful sports bettor, I’m going to show you. Lots of people claim to have an edge but few really do. I back up my investments with my own money. If I wasn’t successful I wouldn’t be able to sustain these types of investments over the long run.

Nowadays, I wouldn't call myself a "full time" bettor in a way I used to do, although I still keep an eye on the the next big fight event for good betting opportinities to consistently win money betting on fights. I've also enjoyed my money, traveling to over 70 countries and meeting and chatting with many of the world's most interesting and successful people. Here's an article I wrote back in August 2011 that outlined what a typical day in my life was like as combat sports fund manager.

With sportsbetting becoming more mainstream and the industry growing, and the passing of Senate Bill 443 is now legal to create a sportbetting mutual fund in Las Vegas. I want to establish Bet on Combat as the standard. Consistently turning a profit, transparent and informative. I want to be the leader of this marketplace and show that combat sports betting is a legitimate investment by outperforming the major stock indexes, mutual funds and Etf’s, making sportbetting a real investment option for all.

The fund’s popularity inspired hundreds of daily emails from fans wanting to know more about me and my betting strategy. I am currently engaged in a forthcoming book project entitled “Investing on Combat Sports: Introducing the New Wall Street.” This is a book about my thoughts on combat sports betting, bets I've placed, why I placed them, why I gamble and mostly to share ideas on psychology and strategies and how probability affects our lives. I also discuss ideas for investments and provide an insight into a profession that is rarely acknowledged to exist and when it is, is misunderstood.

Remember that you always risk losing the money you bet, so do not spend more than you can afford to lose. If you think you may have a problem, click here.

The Fund

Bet on CombatAn Alternative Financial Investments

The Bet on Combat Investment Fund or short form BOC Fund is a pooled investment vehicle structured as an offshore fund corporation headquartered in the Caribbean nation of Antigua, and one of the world’s fastest growing destinations for income investing. The BOC Fund pool funds from investors and wager on combat sports markets, similar to investing in any other financial market via a mutual fund. Since its inception in 2010, the fund has clearly out-performed the benchmark Dow Jones for seven-straight years with a reported return on investment of +230% to investors. Importantly it has achieved this with a significantly lower risk profile. Now people have even more options when it comes to investing funds. The Company aims to position itself as an innovator in the Alternative Investment Management sector. 

Founded in 2010 by professional combat sports bettor and oddsmaker Franco Richard also known as Francombat, the BOC Fund™ was created with a view to offer investors an alternative product to shares, bonds, property and other “traditional” investment vehicles and asset classes. From his ability to predict the outcomes of fights, Franco Richard identified the opportunity to secure superior returns through the application of mainstream portfolio and investment management techniques to the burgeoning markets of combat sports betting investment. He figured that if he could develop a combat sports betting picks system in which long losing streaks were avoided, and then managed their risk by betting accordingly, he could use the combat sports betting market to achieve his financial goals. “I look at statistics and records and I basically find out when I can get the most return by betting on combat sports. Some have said this is like gambling but its not. We don’t do anything different than the investment banks trading equity,” Franco said.

Bet on Combat Investment Fund was established in January 2010 and was opened to external investors in January 2015. The betting fund is made available only to certain sophisticated or accredited investors and cannot be offered or sold to the general public. As such, the Combat Sports Investment Fund avoid direct regulatory oversight, bypass licensing requirements applicable to investment companies, and operate with greater flexibility than mutual funds and other investment funds.

The fund is administered by a board of advisors assembled into a combat sports betting consulting group. The goal of each advisor is to target opportunities they believe provide the biggest advantage in terms of the win percentage odds from the combat sports betting market. Just like your stock broker takes its commission, the Bet on Combat Investment Fund will receive a performance fee of 30% of any investment return above the initial investment (payable bi-annually in arrears). These plays are hand selected by our team of experts and approved by Franco Richard, himself, along with his panel of associates. All final picks are made by Franco Richard.

The company is headquartered in the Caribbean nation of Antigua. Franco Richard is the largest Shareholder of the combat sports hedge fund and invests in every mandate of the Combat Sports Investment Fund.

Philosophy

Value Betting Investment Philosophy

Bet on Combat's philosophy is to provide an economy proof investment alternative to traditional products such as stocks, bonds, real estate and other “traditional” investment vehicles and asset classes. Bet on Combat Investment Fund (BOC Fund) strives to be the most transparent and accurate source of value-bet combat sports prediction.

Betting odds represent the bettors' perception of value, not actual value. Our betting systems are able to pinpoint and exploit pricing opportunities created by the irrationality of sports bettors, and the need for sportsbooks to balance their risk exposure. By examining 20+ years of betting line data with our proprietary betting trends, we've developed profitable betting strategies based on cutting edge "market efficiency" economic theory. 

Bet on Combat Founder Franco Richard was a professional combat sports bettor and oddsmaker long before he became the public figure you know today. From his humble beginnings through his extraordinary success as a businessman, he has adhered to the same simple investment philosophy: Approach the combat sports betting market no different than financial markets.

Franco’s philosophy makes good sense. Since its inception in 2010, the BOC Fund has clearly out-performed the benchmark Dow Jones and S&P 500 indices, and yielded profitable results for investors. Importantly it has achieved this with a significantly lower risk profile. Additionally, the fund grew by 363%, which means we had doubled the initial capital over a time period of two years and tripled over a period of five years. (figure 1.0). Don't believe the hype? Check out our documented betting track record on betoncombat.com/performance, and see for yourself.

In a time of minimal or negative returns on mutual funds, RRSPs, real estate and other conventional holdings, The BOC Fund delivers 10-15% ROI per month. That translates into 60%-70% ROI over the course of a year. And while new to financial thinking, returns like that simply can't be ignored. Bet on Combat Investment Fund will make you more money in a month than the stock market in a year. 

We urge members to treat their wagering account like a high-performance alternative investment vehicle. By remaining consistent with our principles and philosophy, we measure success with long-term perspective.

2008 42% -38.2% -44.8%

The Bet on Combat Board of Directors and Advisors currently consists of the following executives:


Franco Richard – Founder, Chief Investment Officer

Franco Richard, better known as Francombat, is the Founder, Chief Investment Officer, and the largest Shareholder of Bet on Combat Investment Fund, as well as a dedicated income investor and successful entrepreneur. If you haven’t heard about him before, he is the guy from Montreal, Quebec who dropped out of college and started to bet his own money on the outcomes of fights and became a multi-millionaire by the age of 27.

Starting at the age of 25, Franco broke into the gambling industry by working for one of the biggest bookmaker in Asia, where he learned all the good, the bad and the ugly being both a oddsmaker and handicapper. This laid the foundation that gave him the invaluable perspective of how lines are set, line movements, how public perception affects the line, and the ability to spot value.

In 2004, Franco founded online gaming venture Bet on Combat™, a company that provides its clients with advice on who to bet on and how to bet them, similar to a stock broker advising its client on which stock or fund to invest their money in. By 2005, Franco was Asia's biggest combat sports betting consultant, with an impressive client list of 100 "high net worth individuals" whose minimum bet was $5000. In the same year, Franco relocated its global headquarters from Taiwan to Antigua with the dream of making it big in the industry. Franco's first notable cash was in 2004, when he placed his life saving money of 17,450 on fellow French Canadian prospect Georges St-Pierre at UFC 46: Supernatural and doubled his money. He then had the $37,000 bank roll to start his combat sports betting career. Then, three year later he made international news in the spring of 2007 when he won more than a quarter million dollars ($259,000.00 to be exact) betting on Matt Serra to win the UFC Welterweight title at odds of 7-1 at UFC 69: Shootout.

In response to the erratic nature of mainstream financial markets, Franco identified the opportunity to secure superior returns through the application of mainstream portfolio and investment management techniques to the burgeoning markets of combat sports betting investment, leading to the establishment of the world's premier combat sports hedge fund. In January 2010, with $250,000 as a seed capital investment, Franco established the Bet on Combat Investment Fund (BOC Fund) in St-John, Antigua with a view to offer investors an alternative product to shares, bonds, property and other “traditional” investment vehicles and asset classes. Under his leadership, the investment fund has grown to nearly $1,3 million in assets under management within five years. 

With unconventional business approaches, Franco has firmly established himself in the online gambling industry as the go-to experts on how to make money betting on fights. As of today, he has the longest running and most profitable combat sports betting tips record in the industry. Franco has proven that it's possible to become filthy rich outside Wall Street, and wagers over $100,000 a week on fights.

Nowadays, Franco doesn't earn his money only from combat sports betting. In the business world, Franco Richard is known as the Chairman of the Board and CEO of Francombat Management, an asset management firm and holding company who owns and operates a collective investment portfolio of businesses out of Antigua. Prior to forming Francombat, Franco worked as a stock trader and venture capital across a range of industries in the Canadian, U.S. and International markets.

Franco’s successful story inspired hundreds of daily emails from fans wanting to know more about him and his betting strategy. He is currently engaged in a forthcoming book project entitled “Investing on Combat Sports: Introducing the New Wall Street.” You can watch our documentary series where he tells how he went from $17.450 to $3.700.000 in profits from betting. You can also listen to him discussing combat sports and betting on the BetonCombat.com's podcast We are on the Fight.

This journey has provided him with a great lifestyle and financial freedom. Despite his success, Franco never forgot his humble upbringing. Throughout his Unfightable Foundation, Franco give back to various charities from around the world.

Getting Started

How to Bet on Combat sports? 

To Learn How to Bet on Fights, you can read our Free Betting Guide right here. You can also buy the book "Investing on Combat Sports: introducing the New Wall Street”. You will find Bet on Combat Founder Franco Richard's personal Strategy, tips and much more. 

Why can I never find your book in any bookstore?

Because bookstores are horrible places to sell books—30-40% of all books are returned and the margins bad. The book is available exclusively online at Amazons because online selling is the future as it’s much more efficient and profitable for publishers.

Where to Bet? 

If you're looking for a place to bet on combat sports, consider signing up through us at BetonCombat.com/Bookmakers. Join today to take advantage of all our great offers. Our many years of experience guarantee you a superior betting service. You can follow all the opening Boxing, Kickboxing and MMA betting odds at the biggest sports books in the industry on BetonCombat.com’s Live Odds page.

Bet on Combat not only keeps track of all the combat sports betting lines and betting odds but also monitors sharp and steam lines moves, giving you instant access to live odds from 20-plus reputable sports books, all handpicked and certified as reliable outlets by Franco Richard himself.

Should I have more than one sports book? 

It certainly doesn't hurt to have accounts at multiple books. In fact, that's a great practice of a professional bettor: it allows you to do what we call line shopping (aka looking for the best price on a given event). Serious bettors will likely have accounts at 4-5 books or more. For example, one book might find Sean Salmon at +500 on one site (meaning for every $1 risked you would win $5) and +450 on another ($4.50 for every $1 risked). You'd obviously want to shop and get the best price, namely the +500 line. Otherwise you're just leaving money on the table. 

Can I wager on other sports? 

Of course, the sport books we recommend, allow you to wager on a variety of sports such as football, horse races, tennis, basketball, etc.

Do you guys get a "kickback" of any sort from Sportsbooks or any other advertising entity at this site?

Absolutely Not. We have no partnerships, endorsements or sponsorships with any sportsbooks in any way, shape or form. We intentionally avoid those types of relationships due to the inherent conflict of interest they present.  So, any sportsbooks display on BetonCombat.com are for information purpose only and their odds through a purchased syndicated feed.

Is this safe? 

Thousands of bettors have enjoyed betting on sports via the internet. The sport books we recommend have paid out millions in winnings. Remember these sportsbooks are not fly by night businesses looking to scam a few thousand dollars from one person. This is a billion dollar industry and they have all built there business on gaining your trust and the trust of big players. Each one has at least a decade of history behind them and you should feel secure moving your money in and out of any of these books.

Posting predictions

How do I post predictions?

To post tips you must first register with BetonCombat.com. Then click on ‘post tip’ in the top right corner of the bettingexpert website. On the first screen of the post tip form you can select your event by either manual search or begin typing the teams/players involved and select from the drop-down menu. Once you have found your desired event proceed to the next screen where you can input the details of your prediction.

Select your bet category, bet type and other prediction specifics. Note: some options only become available when selecting certain bet categories and bet types. Next you must select your desired stake. Odds are automatically added once your tip has been entered, with the highest odds at the top of the list.

The final stage of post predictions to support the prediction with an analysis. See the sections on analyses below for more details.

The final screen is a confirmation of your tip.

For full details about the rules of the tipster competition click here.

What happens if I make a mistake in my prediction? e.g. I selected the wrong bet type.

You should always double check your predictions before you submit them and you should consider our predictions as you would if you placed the same bet with a bookmaker -- would you expect the bookmaker to change your bet after it was placed because you made a mistake?

Can I delete a prediction?

Tipsters are not allowed to delete predictions and even if you claim a mistake was made, predictions will not be deleted by Bet on Combat unless it is under extreme circumstances, for example, we suspect cheating. Similarly, and for obvious reasons, predictions cannot be deleted after an event has taken place. Eliminating the prospect of deleting predictionhs also helps us achieve our golden rule of transparency ensuring that all information that appears on bettingexpert is made in good faith. Please be certain your prediction is correct before you post it.

Do I have to manually update results of matches?

No. Our new post prediction system automatically updates the results of events so once you have placed a prediction you don't have to do anything further. Note: in rare circumstances, such as rare bet types in smaller markets, events might not be automatically updated and will either have to be manually updated by the tipster or by Bet on Combat.

Can I post tips in different languages?

You are allowed to post tips in different languages but please note that predictions will only contribute towards that language’s respective competition. The exception to this is the Tipster of the Year competition which is awarded to the tipster that generates the most profit over a year in all tips posted regardless of the language the tips are posted in.

Can I post the same tip in different languages?

No, you are not allowed to post the same tip twice even if it is in a different language. Previously, tipsters were able to translate tips so they were available for different however the rules have changed now since the introduction of the new post tip system so that translations are not enabled any further.

Am I allowed to post more than one prediction per match?

Tipsters are permitted to post more than one prediction in the same match, however, the predictions must be in different markets and the combined total of the stakes for that match must not exceed 10. The purpose of this rule is that tipsters are unable to stake more than 10 on any tip but also allows them a bit of freedom to tip on other markets. The same rule applies for tips placed on the same event but across different languages - the total tip on any one event across all languages must not exceed 10 units. Please remember that if you do decide to post predictions on multiple markets of the same event, the analyses must be different and relevant for that specific prediction.

This means for example that if you wanted to post an 8-unit tip on a home victory for a particular event you are not allowed to post more than 2-units on a different market in the same event. This would take the total to 10-units. Note: this would not count as a 10-unit stake and will not contribute to the 10% rule for 10-unit tips.

There is an exception to this rule in Golf, Horse Racing and Motor Sports whereby tipsters are allowed to post up to 10 units on a win market in addition to a further combined 10 units in any other markets other than the win market. The reason for this exception is that these single events feature many competitors and so we don't want tipster to be too restricted in these markets which can sometimes only happen once a year.

Why can’t I place a tip less than 30 minutes before an event?

We want to give users browsing tips enough time to make an informed decision about whether to follow a tip before the event begins.

What do I do if I see a mistake in a tip?

If you think a tipster has made a mistake in a tip make sure you report the tip to us using our Report Tip feature found in the top right hand corner of the respective tip's page. There are several options to choose from or alternatively select the 'other' category and manually input what you think is wrong with the tip.

What do I do if I suspect a user is attempting to cheat in their tip?

If you suspect another tipster is cheating or gaining an unfair advantage then please report them immediately here. Please be aware that it is not a good idea to publicly accuse other tipsters of cheating particularly if you don't have sufficient evidence to support your claim so always give them the benefit of the doubt. We appreciate all the help we can get from our community in regulating tipster behaviour.


Transparency and Accountability

Why did we create Bet on Combat Chatroom
 
We built Bet on Combat Chatroom as a way to introduce measurement, accountability, transparency and data-driven optimization into the betting world. In order to demonstrate transparency and accountability, communications should be clear, easily accessed, and kept up-to-date. Our inspiration came from Franco Richard trying to help his students bet better when he realized detailed performance data helps people focus on what works best for them thus making them more profitable. Academic studies suggest 95% of bettors lose longterm and 70% of professional mutual fund managers fail to beat the S&P 500 each year and yet there remains thousands of "gurus", bettors and handicappers who claim online to be consistently profitable.
 
But who is actually profitable?  
 
It's time to put up or shut up. Just like Investimonials does for financial products, BetonCombat.com aims to discover the best bettors and investors and weed out the worst.
 
How do I know you didn’t just make those statistics up?
 
Easy. You can follow the site for a while and see for yourself. We sell our plays in long-term packages, anywhere from 1 month to 1 year. If we were to lie just once about our results, we would lose every single long-term customer. Thus the members of this site are collectively the best monitoring service in the business. We want your business long-term, which is why we will never give you exaggerated or false records, ever.
 
Why do so many bettors, handicappers and "gurus" lie about their performance?
 
The gambling industry will always have its share of weasels, degenerates and losers, but we prefer to focus our precious time and efforts on those who are not necessarily always successful, but who always want to learn from losses and mistakes instead of pretending they don't exist or covering them up with lies. Everyone, even legendary investors and traders, endures losses every now and then; we have already learned from the top bettors and gamblers in the Chatroom that the key to successful long-term performance is by focusing on minimizing these losses. Most successful bettors realize this game is a marathon not a sprint and the sooner you begin analyzing your own and other people's profits and losses in detail, the more successful you will become.
 
Why should people share their profits and losses openly?
 
Trillions of dollars are spent each year on management fees, subscriptions, DVDs, newsletters and coaching on people claiming to be consistently profitable, but academic studies and experience teaches us trusting anyone in this industry is very dangerous. You can help make this industry transparent and great. There are honest and consistently profitable bettors and handicappers out there, we just need to find them.
 
Why does Bet on Combat Chatroom have its share of critics?
 
Our founder Franco Richard has made more than a few enemies exposing fraud and misinformation in the betting and online handicapper industries so people will rip on any and all of his projects. We've gotten used to that... and his attitude problems... and we remain focused on our goal of true betting transparency to improve not just individual bettors, but the entire malfunctioning industry called gambling.
 
Why has nobody thought of this before?
 
It is not in anybody's business interest for the online sports betting industry to be fully transparent. And that's what we're hoping to accomplish--to cut through all the BS and weed out the incompetents and liars... because that mission is just and right.
“From a bookmaker’s perspective and a bettor’s perspective, the integrity of the combat sports betting market is something that we all have in common,” Bet on Combat Founder added. “If it’s compromised, bookmakers are out of business and so am I. So I’m going to do my best to protect it.”
 
How does Bet on Combat weed out liars?
 
The community can weed out those who they think are lying and you can now post screenshots of your bets or even verify them via our bookmakers import feature. We will not tolerate liars and frauds on our site, they can go post on other websites that tolerate such behavior. If you don't believe a bet, click this Madoff icon and it will be noted... this makes the Bet on Combat community self-policing. Bet on Combat members can rise above such suspicion by using the broker connect tool to verify their trades, thus wiping away any doubt that their trades are real.
 
Is it a conflict of interest for Franco Richard to both own the site and be on the leaderboards?
 
No, because Franco shows all of his bets just like everyone else. He is the reason Bet on Combat exists and he exemplifies the kind of brutal honesty and transparency to which all bettors and handicappers should aspire.
 
What are verified results?

BOC has a 100% transparent & verified results policy. This means that all SPS picks are submitted to, tracked and verified by an independent 3rd party handicapping monitor. This is a true measure of excellence in the sports betting industry where false claims and misleading advertisements are rampant. Most services do not display past performances simply because they have a poor record. Those that do, often either fabricates their results (or) data mine their results showing only past wins. Only long term profitable services such as SPS displays all past picks and are willing to be monitored by a 3rd party!
