Find The Right Tipsters That Suit You!

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 period of time.

Anyone can pick a few winners every now and then but it takes REAL SKILL to beat the bookmaker year after year after year – which is exactly what this report reveals.

To help illustrate just how good the best tipsters are and to help find the right one for you, we break them down into different categories so you can easily compare.

So, for example you can find comparison tables detailing:

  • The best Horse Racing only tipsters;
  • The best Sports tipsters (covering Football, Golf, Tennis, Boxing, Darts, Rugby, Baseball, Basketball & Ice Hockey);
  • The most profitable overall tipsters across all sports;
  • The best tipsters from the last 12 months only;
  • The best low cost tipsters;
  • The best free tipsters;
  • The best betting bank growth tipsters;
  • The best ‘odds availability’ tipsters (those that quote realistic prices);
  • And much more besides…

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

  • The Best ‘Adjusted Profits’ Tipsters – Discover how each tipsters profits stand up if betting 15 to 30 minutes after a tip is supplied (ideal if you are worried about not getting the advised prices)
  • Unique ‘Suggested Profits’ Tables – Discover how much money you need to risk on each tipster to make a profit – and how much you can make if doing so. Fully tailored to each tipster to be entirely realistic.

Proud To Be Different – 100% Independent Stance

Best of all – the 58 tipsters included in this report have been independently evaluated and ranked with no affiliate links or kickbacks (unlike so many other ‘tipster review’ websites).

The Smart Betting Club ashas a unique, 100% independent reviewing policy so when we say a tipster is good – it’s because it truly is and not because someone is paying us to say to! Read more on our stance and why we are different

639 points profit from these 3 Free SBC tipsters

If you are looking for some top quality tipsters to follow – then you must check out the 3 racing experts currently supplying all of their advice for free to Smart Betting Club members.

As a combination they have made 639 points profit (at good ROI figures) and provide a ready-made platform for success using tipsters.

Ideal for those of you not sure where to start OR wary about spending money on tipster subscriptions!

All 3 of the tipsters supply their advice both via email and through access to the SBC members-only tipping forum, making them very easy to follow indeed.

You can gain access to each of them the instant you join the Smart Betting Club. Sign-up today and follow the links in our ‘Free Tips’ members section to get going immediately.

…And for those of you wanting to know more about each tipster and how much they have made – I have penned a few words below…

1. Rooster Tips: +397 Points Profit In 4 Years

The ‘Rooster’ has a particular skill for highlighting big priced racing tips, having made 397 points profit from 1233 bets since 2014 as follows:

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. 21.36% ROI
2017: 314 bets, 355 points staked, +80 points profit. 22.4% ROI

To backup his success, The Rooster was also voted the ‘Top Free Tipster’ in the recent SBC Awards by our members.

Best Free Tipster 2018 - Smart Betting Club

He doesn’t bet every day, but when he does he often goes in at big prices and as his excellent record will testify, he knows how to identify winners!

2. The Accountant Lays: 117 Points Profit

The Accountant has been successfully trading on Betfair for the past 20 years and puts up several tips each day for you to lay to lose on the exchanges in the place market (where effectively you are backing each horse not to finish in the each-way places – usually the top 2 or 3).

Since he began advising tips on the 29th August, he has put up 686 place lays and made a profit of 116.82 points at Betfair SP. This is after 5% commission has been deducted from any winnings.

His method is quite simple as everyday between Monday to Friday he puts forward a series of lays for the place market at 1 point level stakes. All results are quoted at Betfair SP with a maximum lay price of 15.0.

The average price of each lay is around the 6/1 marker and so far it has hit a high strike-rate of success.

As you might expect from a tipster with a name of ‘The Accountant’ – numbers are his thing (as he is indeed an Accountant by trade) so he is using this expertise to make strong profits in the little-explored Betfair Place market.

Again, all of his tips are available free of charge to SBC members via email and through the SBC Forum.

3. Chris Baker +125 Points Since 2015

Chris is a true racing enthusiast with both a love for the sport of Kings and an ability to make profit from it!

Since 2015, he has put up 1704 tips and made 125.30 points profit at a ROI of 8.09% – all to widely available odds and sensible stakes.

He has been in the Winners Enclosure lately too with highlighted winners over the past 6 weeks including Hayadh at 25/1, Mirsaale at 25/1, Shattered Love at 14/1 and Clan Legend at 9/1.

Chris was also the 2017 winner of Racing UK’s ‘Tipstar’ competition to find the UK’s best amateur tipster. He was the unanimous winner according to all 3 judges, impressing with his racing knowledge and enthusiasm for the sport. You can read more about Chris’s victory here.

You can follow Chris in via email and through the SBC Forum everyday for free as an SBC member.

The Votes Are In: Your 3 Best & Worst Bookmakers Revealed

As promised, I am back today with the results of the final 2 categories as voted for by you in the 2018 SBC Awards, that of Best and Worst Bookmaker.

These awards offer a unique insight into those firms attracting both your praise and ire based on the service (or lack of) that they have offered you over the past year.

As ever these awards are based on your votes (not mine or SBC’s) so represent the general consensus of what the majority of you think on both the good and bad of the bookmaking world.

So, without further ado – here is who you voted for as both best and worst bookie…


Revealed: Your Favourite Bookmaker

Let’s kick things off firstly by examining who you voted for as your best bookmaker from last year, with the results as follows:

Best Bookmaker SBC Awards 2018

The winner of the Gold award for best bookmaker by a very clear distance was Stoke-based internet behemoth, Bet365. With a very user-friendly website, huge numbers of betting markets and a massive presence both online and on your TV screens, it’s no surprise to see Bet365 scoop this award for the second year running.


Holding onto the Silver award for this year is Betfair, who despite increasingly focusing on their sportsbook, remain very popular especially for those using their betting exchange.

To give some context as to the popularity of both Bet365 and Betfair – it should be noted that between them they took 66% of all the votes.

Making up the best of the rest and winner of the Bronze award with 7.6% of the votes was Paddy Power (who it should be noted merged with Betfair in 2016).

Mentions here must also go to both Pinnacle & Smarkets who polled around 7% of the votes between them to be the 4th and 5th best rated firms.

Your Worst Bookmaker

Onto one of the most anticipated ‘Awards’ – that of the Worst Bookmaker, where once again you voted in your droves as follows:

Worst Bookmaker SBC Awards 2018

The common element between the winner of this year’s Gold and Silver Awards is the fact that both Ladbrokes and Coral are now part of the same firm, following their merger in late 2016.

Ladbrokes also scooped the worst bookie award last year, so it seems whatever they are doing wrong at the magic sign has rubbed off on new stablemate, Coral, who appeared from nowhere to take the Silver award this time out.

Worst Bookmaker Gold Award - Smart Betting Club

The Bronze award this year also went to perennial worst bookie candidate, Stan James, who drop down a spot from Silver in 2017.

It must be noted how competitive this field was with very little to choose between the top 3 and those who finished 4th and 5th respectively – Betfred and Boylesports.

To illustrate this clearer, here is the percentage breakdown of votes from the top 5:

  • Ladbrokes: 20.08%
  • Coral: 16.73%
  • Stan James: 16.6%
  • Betfred: 14.67%
  • Boylesports: 13%

What the closeness of this vote helps indicate is just how widespread punters issues remain in general with how they are treated by bookmakers. This is not just about one rogue firm, but a malaise affecting the whole industry, where practices need to improve across the board.

Last Year’s Results:
Gold – Ladbrokes
Silver – Stan James
Bronze – Boylesports

“My Net Profit Was In Excess Of £58,000”

“I have just conducted a review of the tipster performance for 2017 and my net profit was in excess of £58,000, the majority of it coming from horse racing.”

Your favourite betting website, podcast & more. SBC awards revealed

Today has seen the release of the very latest SBC Report – our 2018 Betting & Tipster Awards.

These awards highlight the best tipsters across a variety of markets, sports and costs (yes, we have a best free tipster category) as well as categories such as best (and worst) bookmaker, website, podcast and much more.

Canvassing the opinions of both SBC members and you, the general betting public, an SBC Award is a much sought after recognition of quality.

Whilst the full SBC Awards Report and the various best tipster category winners are available only to you as a member of the Smart Betting Club, in today’s email, I am going to reveal who won the Best Betting Website and Podcast categories.

(And next Friday I will be revealing who won the Best & Worst Bookmaker Categories too….)

SBC Awards 2018 Front Cover

Revealed: Your Favourite Betting Websites

Back in December 2017, I sent out an email inviting you to vote across 4 different categories open to the general betting public as follows:

  • Best Bookmaker
  • Worst Bookmaker
  • Best Betting Website
  • Best Betting Podcast

Starting with the Best Betting Website award – an extremely popular category, where you voted in huge numbers with the Gold, Silver & Bronze Awards as follows:

Best Betting Website 2018 SBC Awards

The unanimous winner of the Gold award for the best betting website went to Geegeez.co.uk who repeated last year’s success against some very stiff opposition with much larger budgets. Run by Matt Bisogno, the Geegeez site has gone from strength to strength in 2017 and remains an excellent source of information and advice for racing punters.


The Silver award went to the Odds Comparison website, Oddschecker, who have quickly become the go-to website for finding the best odds on any bet, especially when it comes to horse racing.

The Bronze award awarded to the Racing Post website, which continues to be a very useful website for everything from racing form, betting advice, news, live commentary and much more besides.

Your Best Betting Podcasts

In a new category this year, I also asked you to vote for your favourite betting podcast in recognition of the growing number of racing and betting shows now available to punters.

Here is how you voted:

Best Betting Podcast 2018 SBC Awards

Taking the inaugural Gold award was the Racing Post’s very own ‘Postcast’ which regularly discuss all the big races and football fixtures from a betting perspective.

Featuring several big-name guests and tipsters, listeners can enjoy a mix of news, views and insight.


The Silver award was scooped by the very enjoyable Final Furlong podcast – a weekly horse racing show that discusses the big issues in racing in association with At The Races. Fronted by Emmet Kennedy and Kevin Blake (of ‘It Can Be Done’ book fame) alongside regular high-profile guests, it’s an essential listen for any racing fans.

Bronze this year went to the odds comparison website, Oddschecker who despite only launching a podcast in September 2017 have become a favourite amongst betting fans. Tackling a wide range of topics from the Champions League to the Ashes, plus a recent special with football tactics expert, Michael Cox, its recommended listening material.

“My Net Profit Was In Excess Of £58,000”

“I have just conducted a review of the tipster performance for 2017 and my net profit was in excess of £58,000, the majority of it coming from horse racing.”

How This Punter Made 58K Betting With Tipsters In 2017


Everyone wants to make money betting, yet the reality is that without expert help to guide you along the way, most people will sadly only ever show a loss.

We know that needn’t be the case as with the right information on the best tipsters to follow and an understanding of the fundamentals of betting properly (staking plans, betting banks, mindset etc..) anyone can make a profit betting, regardless of experience or expertise.

And so to help illustrate exactly how here at the Smart Betting Club we can help improve your betting, I have commissioned a new series of interviews with ordinary SBC members on just how we have done that for them.

Starting today with Michael who has been an SBC member since 2013 and who last year made £58,000 from the tipsters he follows.

Below in his own words, you can read more on exactly how he has achieved this…

How SBC Has Helped My Betting | Michael

What’s your name?


When did you join the Smart Betting Club (SBC)?

I joined the SBC about 5 years ago

What sports do you bet on?

Currently I bet on horse racing, football, tennis and darts.

How many tipsters do you follow?

I currently have an active tipster portfolio of 19 tipsters, consisting of 8 horse racing tipsters and the rest all sports based.

Why did you join the Smart Betting Club?

I am originally from the UK but have lived abroad for the past 13 years, the SBC was recommended to me by a friend who is involved in the betting industry.

How has the Smart Betting Club helped you?

The SBC has enabled me to derive a decent second income by helping identify honest and professional betting tipsters that are available out there. Having worked in banking for over 30 years, I retired 2 years ago and and this has allowed me to increase the number of tipsters I follow so that betting has become my full part time job!

Betting abroad presents its own challenges but by using VPNs etc these can be managed. Because of time differences between the UK and where I am based, I do sometimes miss some tips for evening races and football matches. Like most readers I suffer from account closures and restrictions and use accounts in other names to place my bets. For sports betting I place most of my bets with Sportmarket (not available to UK based customers) which gives me access to the large Asian bookmakers such as Pinnacle, SBO and so on.

2018 BTG 468X60

What do you like most about the Smart Betting Club service?

I enjoy reading the regular tipster reports from SBC and use it to identify future tipsters to add to my portfolio. I also keep my own spreadsheets for each tipster to track their individual performance. For me, SBC represents one of the few places were you can find honest and unbiased information on betting tipsters. Going forward I intend to continue betting and making a profit as much as account closures/restrictions allow.

How much have you made betting since you joined the Smart Betting Club?

I have just conducted a review of the tipster performance for 2017 and my net profit was in excess of £58,000, the majority of it coming from horse racing.

What are your betting plans for the future?

Looking at the individual tipster performance the numbers show to me how hard it is to make a profit on sports betting with only 5 from 12 sports tipsters showing a profit for last year. It seems the advantage of being able to get the required stakes/prices on sport betting is not being justified in terms of profit and I will be removing those long term unprofitable sports tipsters when they come up for renewal.



Read More Real-Life Member Experiences

If you enjoyed this interview, you can read more with other SBC members as below:

K on how he made £38,000 betting on horse racing in 2016 alone.

Clive on how he made £35210 in 23 months

Ringo on how he has made £42000 in his first full year with SBC

Justin on how he makes £20000 a year betting

Phil on how he takes 4 holidays abroad ever year with betting winnings

In coming weeks and months I will also be publishing more interviews with other SBC members, each of whom has their own story to tell.

So if you fancy seeing how we can help you make money betting, why not consider a Smart Betting Club membership
