🎧SBC Podcast #75: Dylan From Pinnacle Odds Dropper On Market Moves, Automated Alerts & Beating Soft Bookmakers!

In the latest SBC Podcast I am joined by Dylan, the co-founder and co-owner of Pinnacle Odds Dropper (or POD for short!) who’s service was the focal point of the major review in our latest magazine!

Chasing steam‘, ‘top down betting‘, ‘market movers‘ and ‘warm money‘ – all of these terms broadly mean the same thing – following in smart money to make a profit.

With sharp bookmakers (like Pinnacle) focusing their resources on keeping their prices up to date and ‘soft bookmakers’ often lagging behind, services like POD help followers to make profit when the former cut prices and the latter are slow to follow them.

Automation drives this kind of service and provides ‘every day bettors’ with the opportunity to beat soft bookmakers with a steady stream of sharp information.

In this podcast, Dylan and I discuss the concept, the software he and his team have built to help execute it and much more besides. The tipping landscape is constantly changing and this type of service is part of a new breed of customisable products that give bettors the edge!
