Each Tipster Profit Report is designed to help you find the very best betting tipsters – those that have proven themselves to be successful over a long-term period of time.

To help with this we breakdown the 60 tipsters into different categories so you can easily compare and contrast them.

So for example you can find comparison tables detailing:

  • The best Horse Racing & Sports tipsters
  • The most profitable tipsters
  • The best tipsters from the last 12 months

We also know that its not just profits in theory that you want but in practice. Which is why you can also view:

  • The Best ‘Adjusted Profits’ Tipsters – how their profits stand up if betting often 15 to 30 minutes after a tip is supplied (ideal if worried about not getting the advised prices!)

16 ‘ Bad Tipster’ Warning Signs & The Bookie/Tipster Profit Share Problem

Last week I was pleased to be quoted in an article published by the Guardian newspaper on the growing issue of tipsters and betting websites profiting from advising losing tips.

You can read the article in full here and whilst some of the phrasing at times I disagree with (for example I don’t think all tipsters involved are deliberately recommending losing tips – some after all are just bad at tipping) it serves to illustrate the problems that can confront you when seeking out quality tipping advice without expert guidance.

The problem the Guardian highlighted is one created by bookmakers who incentivise bad tipsters by offering a profit share of the losses their tips make from the customers they refer. This is done through what are termed ‘affiliate programs’ which are commonly used by many legitimate businesses across all kinds of industries.

Whilst I have no beef with affiliate programs per se – those that reward people with a profit share of losses are always going to be open to abuse and I am pleased to see this being clamped down on.

To illustrate the scale of the problem, this intriguing Football365 article made allegations about one particularly popular social media tipster with questions to answer on this front.

SBC 101 468X60

How To Avoid Tipster Scams

Frustrated by the bad name these loss-share tipsters are giving the industry, one long-running and highly respected racing tipster, Wayne, owner of the Northern Monkey Punter tipster service shared his own ‘signs of a bad tipster’ shortlist on Twitter.

And with Wayne’s permission, I have copied his ‘signs of a bad tipster’ shortlist below and added a few extra points of my own to watch out for!

16 Signs Of A Bad Tipster…

  1. Tipsters who ‘Boom’ on social media when they have a winner.
  2. Tipsters who don’t have a proper registered website or address for transparency. After all, if they don’t have the time and wherewithal to setup a website these days – how serious can they really be?
  3. Tipsters with a short history of past bets. You need many hundreds, if not thousands of past bets to see if a tipster has a long-term edge. Otherwise they might have just got lucky!
  4. Tipsters that post bets with bookmaker affiliate links. As the Guardian article outlines, this is a warning sign that they might be taking up to a 30% cut from any losing bets you place with the bookmaker they are recommending.
  5. Tipsters who don’t proof their advice to a trusted third party (like SBC) who can verify them as a genuine expert. Also ensures losers can’t be conveniently deleted.
  6. Tipsters that don’t put up their full history of results for you to view (not just the winners!).
  7. Racing Tipsters who settle bets at prices available 5pm the night before racing. Several high-profile tipsters do it, yet these prices are not obtainable to punters staking more than £20. Even if you can get on, you will have your stakes restricted and accounts closed quickly.
  8. Tipsters that settle bets with prices available with poorly rated firms who are quick to restrict punters with even a modicum of ability. The likes of Stan James, Boylesports & Betfred are 3 notorious for this practice.
  9. Tipsters that settle bets at one standout price with just one bookmaker. If following a popular tipster, the chance of you matching those odds are minimal.
  10. Tipsters that contact you via post – where exactly have they got your details from? Some claim they will pay you if you the bet loses and request commission on winners should it win. Its total rubbish. The reality – they’ll run a mile if the bet loses and you’ll never hear from them again.
  11. Tipsters that claim to have inside information. Many members of the public think racing is fixed and so some rogue tipsters try to play on that idea by claiming to have inside information. This information is almost always totally bogus and you are being taken for a ride.
  12. Tipsters with no concept of value. They put up the most likely winner of the race (even if a 1/4 favourite) and never discuss odds.
  13. Tipsters who give no reasoning behind their bets (system based tipsters can be excused here) but surely you want to know why a tipster fancies a bet before you place it?
  14. Tipsters who post doctored images of winning bet slips from unproofed bets. It’s very easy these days to make up ‘winning bet’ slips and you can’t take them at face value as proof of success.
  15. Tipsters who quote winning amounts totally out of context – for example ‘Service X has made £5000 during Ascot’ with no stakes given to put that figure into perspective. It’s just a headline grabbing exercise. What if you had to risk £500,000 to make that £5,000? That doesn’t look so good after all does it!
  16. Tipsters who provide no advice or guidance on betting bank management and a staking plan to follow. If they are making up this as they go – chances are they are doing the same with their tips.

My thanks to to Wayne for sharing these tips. For further reading on him – check out our 2016 case study of why we rate Wayne’s service so highly.

How To Find The Right Experts To Follow

Whilst there are undoubtedly plenty of rogue tipsters out there, especially on social media (where it is very easy to create new accounts and delete posts) there are equally many genuine, professional tipsters such as Wayne for you to follow.

If you are interested in learning more on just who these tipsters are including detailed, independent reviews of what they offer and who it is suitable for, then the Smart Betting Club is here to help.

16/1 Ebor Winner On Saturday

Only last week, The Rooster put up one Ante-post tip for the Ebor on Saturday – the eventual winner, Nakeeta, which he advised at 16/1 on the Monday a few days before the race. Here is what he had to say when tipping it up:


NAKEETA 1pt win@16/1 Skybet Hills Betfred BV Tote

He has some good course form most recently when 2nd to Dal Haraild(meets on better terms) over the Ebor trip in a Listed race in May.

In many races he has been ridden close to the pace yet in this race he was held up well in rear before staying on well all the way up the straight.

He also has a 2nd and 4th in good handicaps here over 2 miles,one where he kicked for home and was outbattled in the last half furlong and the other where his run was slightly held up in the straight.

The 2nd was at this meeting last year so I’m hoping the trainer has had this as a long term target(as I’m sure many have) and if again ridden some where towards the head of affairs he will be able to go for home and try and outstay the other runners.

He was slightly disappointing last time out when 4th at Newmarket in June but that was his 3rd run in a good handicap in 4 weeks.
Given a nice break since then he is guaranteed to get a run if declared (still in after todays 5 day decs )at the final stage and given his price and doubts about many he looks to have a decent chance.
Already nibbled at there is still a bit of 20/1 available but 16/1 still looks good.

The Rooster
 as we know was spot on with his analysis with Nakeeta seeing some support into 12/1 SP on the day before winning such a competitive race.

Best of all the 16/1 was widely available when his tip was advised and those members able to shop around could have easily obtained 20/1.

That’s not all as he also tipped up 2 more winners last weekend from 5 bets advised: Dubara at 6/1 on Friday and Brigliadoro on Sunday at 4/1.

Who Is The Rooster And How Much Has He Made?

The Rooster is a very selective tipster, choosing to bet only when he feels the horses put forward have a better chance than the odds that are on offer. His is a classic value betting approach.

The average odds of tips put forward are generally quite high (often 10/1+) and he has a staking plan where he risks 1, 2 or 3 points on the horse to win, depending on his confidence and the odds on offer.

His strike-rate over the course of the 1,155 tips he has put forward sits at 13.93%, with 161 winners in total. This equates to roughly 1 winner every 7 to 8 tips on average.

These days, The Rooster tips up at around 10am in the morning when its that much easier to get on at the bookmakers or the exchanges. Especially useful for those of you who prefer to use or who are restricted to the exchanges only.

Best of all, The Rooster has made a profit year-in, year-out since he first began in 2014. Here is his full breakdown of stats:

2014: 262 bets, 298 points staked, +131 points profit. 43.96% ROI
2015: 332 bets, 406 points staked, +103 points profit. 25.37% ROI
2016: 325 bets, 391 points staked, +83.5 points profit. 53.37% ROI
2017: 236 bets, 269 points staked, +60 points profit. 22.3% ROI

TOTAL: 1,155 bets, 1,364 points staked, +377.5 points profit. 27.67% ROI

If you had staked a simple £10 on each and every point advised, here is what you would have made:

2014: £1310 profit
2015: £1030 profit
2016: £835 profit
2017: £600 points profit.

TOTAL: £3775 profit.
