SBC Podcast #50: Craig Edwards - Pro Snooker Player Turned Expert Bettor & Tipster
In the latest Smart Betting Club Podcast Episode, I was joined by former professional snooker player turned successful tipster and punter, Craig Edwards. Craig has used his snooker expertise to beat the bookmakers for decades whilst also developing a profitable golf strategy along the way. Being a former professional sportsman, he looks at markets slightly differently and in our chat he shares some insights that can improve any punter's betting!
Independent Bookmakers Guide
Account restrictions and limits are more common than ever. Beat a price or profit enough and the well-advertised 'Oddschecker firms' will often reduce maximum stakes to pennies or stop you betting altogether. This can be disheartening, but there are alternatives to the big bookmakers and exchanges in the form of smaller, independent bookmakers and on this page, you can explore some of the information we have collated on just a few of the firms out there. Many of these bookmakers are experienced layers, fully licensed and with years of history behind them, yet perhaps not the marketing budgets or presence of the likes of Bet365, Betfair and their ilk. Although you may not get all of the frills that are widely advertised by the big Oddschecker bookmakers, many independents offer concessions and special incentives such as sign up offers, extra place races, Best Odds Guaranteed, fallers insurance, daily boosts and cashback on any monthly losses.
SBC Podcast #49: Quentin Franks - His Tipping Edge & Independent Bookmakers Explored
The first instalment of the SBC Podcast in 2023 is now available and it features a returning guest for the very first time in Quentin Franks. Quentin joined me to talk about his life as a professional punter, why he is not retiring, his new and improved tipping service and some of the independent bookmakers he uses to get his bets on (and why more punters should check them out!) You can listen to Episode 49 now via Apple / Spotify / Google / YouTube and all other major podcast directories (search Smart Betting Club)
Edwards Tips: Yet Another NEW Quality Tipster Uncovered In Latest SBC Review
To help SBC members get 2023 off to a flyer, we recently published an extremely detailed review of a new Hall Of Fame service: Edwards Tips, which is run by ex snooker professional, Craig Edwards. Craig's service is a hidden gem - a verified 26.42% ROI from nearly 9,000 bets, 770.41pts profit since inception, selections in untapped markets and with an option to follow on the exchanges - what more could you ask for?
SBC Podcast #48: Simon Nott - A lifetime in Betting and Bookmaking Explored
For the latest SBC Podcast and a festive special, I had a guest with a difference and a man more used to asking the questions than answering them - Simon Nott. Simon is perhaps best known for his #BettingPeople interview series (I was a guest earlier this year) but his expertise does not end there! He is a fountain of knowledge; punting, writing, bookmaking, blogging, publishing, broadcasting - he's done it all! Simon was a brilliant guest and his enthusiasm shone through during all of the topics we discussed. As well as having enough anecdotes to fill 10 podcasts, his wealth of experience in the betting world provided so many valuable insights. He is also one of the nicest guys you could ever hope to meet so definitely go and say hello if you see him on course!
What Others Say About Us
If you want to find the best tipping service or the most accommodating bookmaker, if you want to start betting or improve what you’re already doing, then membership to the Smart Betting Club is a must.
I have always found the Smart Betting Club a great source of information. Their attention to detail puts other competitors simply to shame.
I find their approach to sports betting professional, detailed and unbiased.
The Smart Betting Club helps you become a better punter and simply make more money. My members have the numbers to prove it.
SBC was undoubtedly the biggest single factor in setting me up for success at the outset. You gave me the confidence to get through a horrendous start where I lost £3776 of my opening £5k in the first 82 days. Without you, I would have lost my bottle completely.
Following a fantastic start to 2017 (awaiting some corrections!) so far I am up £35,210 in 23 months. Thanks guys!!!
SBC is a great resource for punters who want to cut through the marketing spin, and find out which services are worth joining, and all my dealings with them suggest they take that responsibility very seriously
A University education can cost as much as £9,250 per year. While the Smart Betting Club costs less than 1% of that and in return you will get the best education in becoming a profitable punter that you will find anywhere.
