You’re reading my honest, no BS review of what I really think about the Zcode System.
Note that this a review though, not the actual Zcode website.
Why am I writing this? Well, when I stumbled across Zcode System for the first time, there weren’t many real reviews around so I thought I’d write one quickly to help any of you who are in the same position I was.
But be warned, I’ll be going into both the good and the bad points, so if that’s something you might not want to hear, then you may as well leave now.
Anyway, let’s get on with the review.
So just what is Zcode System anyway?
“Zcode System” is a comprehensive sports investing program that is designed to give you advice on what sports events to bet on and which ones to avoid. It does this by analyzing a massive database comprised of 15 years’ worth of sports data and spits out its prediction based on this evidence.
Zcode gives predictions on all major U.S. sports including the NBA, MLB, NHL, and NFL. UPDATE: Zcode has now integrated major worldwide soccer leagues (including the World Cup!), NCAA football and basketball, AND horse racing!
For example, last night the Atlanta Braves played the Washington Nationals. Zcode gave the Braves a 55% chance of winning the game, but the odds on them were only 2.27. Zcode decided that there was no value in this bet, so it recommended that you don’t bet this game.
It did, however, give the Under 7.5 Runs bet a 64% of hitting. On an even-money bet like the MLB Over/Under, there was good value, so Zcode gave it a 5-star rating, its highest bet rating.
I’ve tried quite a few “sports investing systems” over the last year or so and don’t get me wrong, I’ve found some winners. Zcode is the first system I’ve seen that not only gives you the picks, but also tells you WHY it’s giving you these picks using straight-up statistics.
Here’s exactly how Zcode achieves an 86.5% success rate:
Zcode recommends that you follow the A-B-C betting technique. That is, make a 1-unit bet. If you lose, make a 2-unit bet. If you lose that, make a 3-unit bet. If you lost that, reset and start back with your “A” bet. Using this A-B-C technique, you should come ahead about 86.5% of the time with each A-B-C series you play using Zcode. Pretty good odds, but it is a little misleading, and that’s why I wanted to clear the air now.
What are the BAD things about Zcode System?
“What? He’s gonna give us bad points, too?!” Heh, yeah, actually. I promised that this would be an honest, no BS review, and I plan to stick by that.
– There is a LOT of information. So much so, that it can be overwhelming at times. Analyzing pitcher ratings, Power Rankings, Win/Loss streaks, and all that jazz. Beginner sports investors can be turned off by all this information. You can easily have 20 recommended bets going, especially during peak betting seasons.
– The price. At $198/month, it’s the most expensive sports investing system I’ve come across so far (well, not including those “expert picks” websites). This isn’t for the casual sports investor. You really need to have a bankroll that can take a $200 shot every month. If you’re not a $50-$100 bettor, there are better sports investing systems out there for you.
And are there any GOOD things about Zcode System?
Well yes, actually, there are. Quite a few to be honest.
– The forum. Zcode not only gives you the machine recommendation, but a very active community also weighs in and gives their two cents about each game. Maybe there’s a key injury that Zcode doesn’t know about? Don’t worry, the forum members will let you know about it before you plunk down your bet.
– There are quite a few “systems within the system”. Zcode gives you the mega lists of information, but it also gives you specific picks each day for those of us too lazy to go through each individual game. My personal favorites are the Alpha and Delta Trends. I’ve made money following these alone and not touching anything else. There are also systems created by forum members that you can follow. The level of flexibility Zcode offers is something I’ve never seen in a betting system before.
– Zcode is constantly being updated. It’s not an e-book. It’s a living, breathing, sports investing system. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been disappointed seeing “Copyright 2008” at the bottom of a guide that I just bought. A lot can change in 4 years (Saints 1stSuper Bowl victory, anyone?). How do I know that these systems still work? I really appreciate that the Zcode guys keep it fresh.
– The support staff is great. This isn’t some deal that some guy threw on Clickbank 3 years ago and left up there to suck up money, there are actual humans behind Zcode (27 of them to be exact). They always get back to my support tickets within 24 hours.
Overall, what do I think?
Zcode System is, in my eyes, the best sports investing software/system I’ve come across. Ron, Mike, Steve, and their team of programmers spent over 2 years beta-testing Zcode before even launching it live, and it really shows. I’ve personally been using it for 9 months now and yes, I’ve made money. How much money? Well, enough to warrant paying for it every month
Hope my review has helped you.
