114% Profits This Season

Our football system is based on the excellent free Fink Tank ratings and you can follow these yourself should you wish.

What Smart Betting Club members have exclusive access to is our short list of value bets, saving you the time and complication of working out the raw ratings.

There are four different methods available to follow the ratings, but the jewel in the crown so far this season has been the AH15 Value Method. This system only picks bets if there is at least 15% value in the available odds and uses Asian Handicap to reduce any volatility in betting returns.

Here’s a summary of all the different systems we track:


  • P/L: Is the points profit to level stakes betting
  • ROI: Is the profits divided by the total amount staked (profit on turnover)
  • ROC: Is the Return on Capital which measures your return on your original starting bank. So £1,000 would now be worth £2115.00
Here’s how the season chart looks to date:

We Do The Work For You

We also highlight the best odds and the next best bookie if those odds have gone. For UK focused punters, we supply a UK bookmaker only spreadsheet. ‘PIN’ stands for Pinnacle and ‘B365’ standing for Bet365.

If you’re new to Asian Handicap betting, fear not. Another valuable bonus of joining the Smart Betting Club is our comprehensive pro betting guide which covers all the basics you need to know such as Asian Handicap betting and other betting essentials.

Get all the qualifiers

We’d like to stress again that the Smart Betting Club is not a tipping service and these bets are put up as a value added extra to our core offering of comprehensive tipster reviews. As ever, there are no guarantees with the tips we’ve put up, but we hope they do give you an idea of how the system could work for you.

If you want to access all the qualifiers this weekend and the other benefits of membership, then join us at the Smart Betting Club today.

Why Asian Handicap Isn’t Always Best

Maximise your football betting profits

Over the last few months we’ve slowly been revealing the intricate details of our powerful football betting combo method to our subscribers.

The general idea is to examine tips from a select group of profitable tipsters and pay particular attention to any tips that overlap. If more than one tipster or ratings service is going for the same team, the more likely it is that you’ll make money.

We’ve explored this strategy from various angles and this month we tackled a key question for our subscribers –

Should you bet with Asian Handicap or Home/ Draw/ Away?

For the initiated, Asian Handicap can be used to take out the draw. This means you might win or get your money back if there’s a stalemate instead of losing. There’s more to it than this, but the general gist is that you tend to sacrifice bigger odds in return for the security of covering the draw.

But is this always the right strategy? No! & here’s why…

First we’re going to set a baseline figure by revealing all bets selected by at least one of the four tipsters over the three seasons 2011-14.

All Qualifiers Win vs Asian Handicap

All Qualifiers Win vs Asian Handicap

Win = Home/ Draw/ Away betting

AH = Asian Handicap

You can see from the table above a fairly consistent pattern for both the Home and the more profitable Away bets – strike rates are increased with Asian Handicap, but profit (in ROI terms) is reduced by using the Asian Handicap option. There are no real surprises here; we’ve sacrificed a higher return on investment for a smoother more reliable path to profit, BUT …

… the key point is what this means in terms of Return on Capital (ROC), the bottom line measure of how much our “betting investment” is expected to return over time?

As it turns out, they end up almost identical for this group of selections, a ROC of around 385% over three seasons, equating to an annualised ROC of 128-129%, i.e. more than doubling our bank in the average year:

All Qualifiers – Return on Capital

All Qualifiers - Return on Capital

However, this only tells part of the story, because what we’re really interested in are the qualifiers that are picked out by multiple tipsters more than once. 
Let’s find out…

The Combo Systems - SBC92

Now we’re specifically looking at those bets which are picked by more than one tipster.

Multiple Qualifiers – Basic Performance Statistics

Multiple Qualifiers - Basic Performance Statistics

Now we can see another dramatic drop off in ROI performance with Asian Handicap betting, particularly with the home bets.

Multiple Qualifiers – Return on Capital

Multiple Qualifiers - Return on Capital

It seems that this time round we’ve also had to sacrifice some Return on Capital if using the AH approach to betting these selections. The straight Win bet approach has produced an annualised ROC of around 115%, but betting the Asian Handicap reduced this to around 91% per year, averaged over the three seasons 2011-14.

Why is this, and why did we not see this lower ROC for the earlier, wider group of all qualifying selections?

One possible reason, and something that certainly fits intuitively, lies in the nature of the two groups of bets. The bets which “don’t make the grade”, when moving from all qualifiers to the combo bets, are those which are selected by one tipster only. We’ve also observed that a disproportionately high number of low odds bets were flagged by one system only.

Another key reason is that performance of away bets. These are quite often at bigger odds and it seems that taking Asian Handicap in these cases dramatically erodes the value available.

Should you drop Asian Handicap

We’ve highlighted again the importance of using Return on Capital as the primary measure of a betting investment. We found that, for all qualifiers, the ROC was very similar whether you use Win or AH betting (128-129% per year over our 2011-14 sample), but this equated to a drop from 6.2% ROI (Win bets) to only 3.6% for the AH bets.

How best to utilise them may well come down to personal choice and your individual betting circumstances. Do you prefer the smoother, more predictable route to profit that Asian Handicap betting normally provides, or are you sufficiently comfortable with the greater highs and lows associated with the riskier, but apparently more rewarding, win betting approach? Have you been restricted by, or are unable to access, a number of bookmakers offering the stand-out prices on Win bets? Are you a more experienced, high roller wanting to take advantage of the greater liquidity and larger betting limits offered in the Asian Handicap markets?

This is just a snapshot of the analysis we undertake in our Smart Betting Club editions. If you want more sign up here.

SBC 92: A Profitable Double Double!

Inside the latest SBC Magazine (Issue 92) we have two highly profitable tipsters you will need to know about and a pair of articles offering betting insight you can’t afford to ignore.

We have a football tipster specialising in goal betting and a racing tipster with high turnover profits. Our betting insight articles include an update on our acclaimed football combo strategy as well as an in depth feature on odds movements for football tipsters. 

FEATURE 1: Football Combo Profits Compared – 260% Profits v 153%!

Within the last three editions of SBC, we have revealed the full details of our football combo strategy. In summary, this shows you how to make huge football betting returns by monitoring the tips of multiple experts.

When more than one expert agrees on a tip, you’re more likely to have found a value bet!

To really unlock the profits from this methodology, you need to know not just WHO to follow, but also HOW.

In this month’s edition, we dig a little deeper on how to follow the football combo method – specifically whether to use Asian Handicap or not.

Asian Handicap bets are often favoured by savvy punters because of the unlimited liquidity available, but they have their disadvantages too. They can often help smooth betting returns, but sometimes this is at the cost of your take home profits.

Take the table below from our combo strategy article:Asian Handicap Vs Win Only Table

The left hand side shows returns betting win only, while the right hand side shows returns betting with Asian Handicaps. We can see that betting using AH can reduce your ROI – this much is typical, but what is unusual is that it also reduces your take home profits (your Return on Capital).

RACING Review: High Turnover Profits – 214% bank growth in 14 months 

Also this month, we review a racing tipster offering a busy turnover of bets throughout the racing season. With over a years’ proofing under his belt and an incredible 3,246 bets in this time, it’s high time that we shared the promising results from this tipster.

As our readers have come to expect, we go beyond an analysis of the headline results, offering insights into these areas:

  • Month by month analysis
  • Typical odds bands
  • UK Racing v Irish
  • Advised stakes options compared
  • Advised stakes v level stakes
  • Odds availability
  • Racing codes compared (flat v national hunt)

It’s this detailed analysis that reveals that flat racing has produced the biggest bang for your buck with +241 points from 769 bets (20.2% ROI)!

FOOTBALL Review: 120% Profit From Goal Betting

Our next review covers the tips from a maths graduate focusing on the Over 2.5 goal market.
This tipster initially became involved in betting whilst studying for her degree, and having identified a “quirk in the bookmaker’s goals pricing”, her gambling grew to become the source of a very useful second income that helped to see her through her studies.This was over four years ago and since then she has accumulated a healthy return of 118.7% Return On Captial. The service is also available at a low cost with excellent odds availability.

FOOTBALL Special: Should You Wait Until Kick-Off?

In this editions final feature we focus on one notable football ratings service to look at odds movements, to answer the perennial questions such as:

  • Should you wait until kick off to get better odds?
  • Or should you grab the odds as soon as you can?
We provide a definitive answer to these questions with even more insight to help you get the most out of your football betting.

7 Ways To Make Money On The National

How To Make Money On The Grand National

Many people dismiss the Grand National as a complete lottery, but don’t let the large field size fool you into thinking you can’t make money on the big race.

Ok we might not be talking a guaranteed fortune here, but there are some tricks and stats that could see you earn enough for a celebratory round at the pub…or maybe a little bit more.

1. Get The Best Free Tips

Saturday morning will be awash with insights and supposed expert opinion on who will win, but very few people are worth listening to.

We monitor dozens of profitable racing tipsters here at the Smart Betting Club and there are a few good free tipsters, but we can’t reveal all of them here. We can recommend the following sources though:

2. Get a Quality Racing Card

One of the best, if not the best racing database out there is ProFormProfessional. Their ratings program is excellent and their system builder is a powerful way to build your own betting strategies.

If you just want to dip your toe in the water of statistical betting, then we recommend their race guides. They offer a fantastic visual form guide that includes speed ratings, trainer/ jockey form and a whole host of other features.

How to double your money in 12 months

3. Stats – Focus On Favourites

Everyone’s dream is to pick out a big priced Grand National winner and earn bragging rights with your friends, not to mention a nice lump of cash.

It’s true that favourites haven’t been the punter’s friend in the last three years, with the last few winners coming in at 33/1, 66/1 and 25/1 SP. Let’s just say the bookmakers have been rather happy with those results, but up until 2012 backing all horses between 1 and 9 in the betting order would have produced a profit to Betfair prices since 1997.

The number one favourite (including joint favourites) has won four times historically since 1997. This is enough to make you a profit of £18 to £1 stakes which is an incredible 70% Return on Investment. Should the longer historical terms exert themselves, then focusing on horses in the top half of the betting order could be the way to go.

4. Place To Win

The Grand National is technically a 16 runner handicap paying out, which means you are paid out up to four places when each way betting, but most bookmakers (online) will pay out to five places with some even going up to six.

The front end is also a good shout for each way betting, especially if your bookie is paying out five places as they often do for the National. Some even pay out six places.

If backing all horses in the top three of the betting order, you historically have 1/3 chance of your horse at least placing. If backing all horses in the top six of the betting order, you have a 50/50 chance of your horse placing.

In the last three years the outsiders have won it, but the top rank of the betting order placed more often than not:

  • 2012: Winner 33/1, but 2-4 were 16/1, 8/1 & 16/1.
  • 2013: Winner 66/1, but 2nd & 3rd were 12/1 & 10/1.
  • 2014: Winner 25/1, but 2nd & 3rd were 14/1 & 10/1.

5. The Best Welcome Free Bets (Online)

If you’ve not yet exhausted all the potential bookmaker accounts available to you then it’s happy days with the Grand National as the bookies will be falling over themselves for your custom.

From £50 matched bets to treble the odds on winning National horses, the choice is yours. Most of the time there will be a small max bet on the best offers, so make sure you do your homework on whether it is worth while to you.

6. The Best Bookie Offers (For all)

The bookies will also be after business from their existing customers which means lots of lovely insurance offers such as ‘Money back if a faller or money back if the favourite wins’. Quite often these offers won’t be released until the morning of the race so it could pay to wait before you shop around.

There will also be a number of time limited price boosts released on social media. Generally be wary of these as bookies will boost something for a reason, but you can get your own back by utilising Betfair to lock in a profit.

7. Newspaper Coupons

A nice way to scrape some free bets is to check on what the dead tree press are running on the day of the National. There will be at least one or two papers running £1 or £2 no quibbles free bet coupons for you to use in shop or online.

You could find you pay for the price of your paper with a £1 winner, or if you’re feeling really cheeky, check your local takeaway for the day’s redtop!

In Summary – Good Luck

Many professional punters steer clear of the National, or just treat it like any other race. For all my years betting as a professional though, this is one race where I enjoy the social aspect of Grand National betting and for once have a small bet just for the fun of it.

If you earn enough to buy your friends a round in the pub from a £1 free bet you found in the back of the Daily Mirror, mine is a Guinness!

Racing Tipsters For Long Term Not Just The Grand National

With the Grand National now less than two weeks away, bookmaker marketing machines are about to about to go into melt down.

The ‘National’ is a British institution and many bookmakers will plan their year around their takings from one race at Aintree. Be prepared for lots of red hot offers such as Faller Refunds and paying out to six places. So the bookies are falling over themselves to take your money, but this still leaves the thorny questions of how to pick the Grand National winner.

We would love to share with you the top tips from all the professional tipsters that we track for Smart Betting Club members, but most will either avoid the National or just treat it like any other race without too much of a fuss.

You see the tipsters that we track aren’t concerned about winning bragging rights from picking winners in high profile races, they’re entirely focused on making their members a long term profit. Find out more here.
