Free Tipster Review – The Value Bettor

It’s the season for giving and goodwill – and so with that in mind, I have just put together a special new FREE download featuring my team’s detailed review of a very profitable tipster from earlier this year.

The tipster in question is called ‘The Value Bettor’ – who we have proofed since 2012, during which time he has made a Return on Investment of 35.1% from 1,305 bets advised.

More than just tips, this particular expert provides detailed write-ups to explain the reasoning behind each selection and just why he is backing it. Meet ups at race fixtures are arranged and a general love for the game shared amongst many of his like-minded members.

Already for the current, ongoing NH season (for that is his specialty), The Value Bettor is up an extra 16 points profit @ 31% ROI from his first 52 bets of the year, with more profits expected over coming months.

Our review and subsequent recommendation of The Value Bettor is a great example of how a membership of the Smart Betting Club can help provide you with everything you need to make money betting using tipsters.

Minimum Bet Guarantee Update – Betfair, Skybet & Bet Victor

There was a very welcome announcement last week on the topic of Minimum Bet Guarantees with news that Betfair have decided to extend their own £500 guarantee to cover all races from 10am onwards each day.

Previously, Betfair were only offering this guarantee on Class 1 and 2 races, so the fact it’s been expanded onto all UK and Ireland meetings is certainly a positive step for shrewd punters looking for places to bet.

This news also counters the reduction in value we have noticed from Bet Victors own offer and the fact their Bet Guarantee market overrounds have been steadily increasing since their introduction a few months back.

I will get into more on the changes with Bet Victor shortly, but first of all a quick update on the online firms offering £500 Min Bet Guarantees as it stands:

Min Bet Guarantee – The Current State of Play

Bet Victor – Offer a separate ‘Guaranteed Bet’ market for every UK/Ireland race, where you can win up to £500 from 11am onwards. Both win and each way betting is allowed.

Those of you who have had Bet Victor accounts closed in the past can also apply to have them reopened, so you can bet into this Guarantee market.

Betfair Sportsbook – Recently expanded to cover all race meetings in the UK and Ireland, you can now bet to win up to £500 from 10am onwards. Win only and those of you ‘stake factored’ (i.e. restricted) in the past can bet without issue.

Skybet – Their own guarantee covers Class 1 and 2 races only and they will lay a bet to lose up to £500 from 10am onwards.

Bet Victor Guaranteed Market Update

As referenced above, we have noted a number of changes in Bet Victor’s own £500 Guaranteed bet offer, specifically regarding the overrounds and quality of odds available in this market.

When this offer was first launched, Bet Victor confirmed to me that their ‘Guarantee’ market odds were identical to those offered in their ‘normal’ racing markets.

If you logged on at 11am and could only place a bet in their guaranteed market, you would get the exact same price as everyone else betting at Bet Victor.

It then became quickly apparent that this initial policy had changed with a gradual decrease in the odds offered if betting into the Guaranteed market compared to elsewhere on the Bet Victor site.

As time has worn on, the Guaranteed market odds have continued to drop and this recent study by the TAPS website outlines the increase in overround and thus reduction in odds value that Guaranteed market punters are seeing.

Examining the first 18 races on one Sunday last month, they found a 117% overround in the normal Bet Victor market, compared to a 126% overround in the Guaranteed market. Quite the difference with 131 out of 189 horses on that day at shorter prices.

How To Use The Bet Victor Offer

Whilst I don’t agree with the TAPS authors assertions that Bet Victor’s offer is a ‘publicity stunt’ and of no value – what is clear is that if betting into their Guaranteed market, you need to check the odds on offer first.

If you want a bet that is 3/1 in the regular market but only 2/1 in the Guaranteed market, then you probably won’t take it. But if its 3/1 or indeed 11/4, it might still be worth it if restricted in your choices of where you can bet.

How many of you unable to bet due to restrictions would take 11/4 instead of 3/1 if it meant you could win money long-term? As long as you don’t lose your profitable edge taking a lower price of course.

So whist the Bet Victor guaranteed bet market is clearly no silver bullet for restricted punters – it is of value if the odds on offer stack up for you.

From the outside looking in, it seems that Bet Victor’s original intention to offer the same odds was not deemed sustainable and ultimately if we want Min Bet Guarantees to work, then higher overrounds is the price we might well have to pay to achieve that. I do wish Bet Victor could have communicated these changes better as simply changing the odds without making it clear why only serves to frustrate and make punters wary that their intentions are genuine.

Without legislation compelling Min Bet Guarantees from all bookies, no firm is going to voluntarily offer a market if it makes them a loss, so we have to be realistic in our expectations.

Don’t forget either that Bet Victor are the only firm offering both win and each way bets – with the latter allowing punters to punt in well known ‘each-way thievery’ races and get preferential terms.

Will SkyBet Commit Further?

As it stands, only Betfair, Bet Victor and Skybet have £500 online Minimum Bet Guarantee offers, although the clear hope from those liaising with them, such as the Horseracing Bettors Forum, is that more firms join the party.

Betfair’s offer is the best for win-only betting from 10am onwards, whilst those of you betting each-way can use Bet Victor from 11am – although being sure to check the value odds on offer when doing so.

The Skybet offer is a way behind, covering as it only does Class 1 and 2 races thus far. You would like to think with their high profile commitments to responsible gambling, one aspect of this would be to expand this offer to allow all punters to bet with them – both winners and losers. Otherwise, how responsible is it if Skybet only take bets from losing gamblers? Not at all in my opinion.

As and when any other bookmakers roll out or update their own offers, I will keep you updated.

You can also follow the Smart Betting Club on Twitter (@sbcinfo) where I also share all breaking news on topics such as this.

Profitable with Bookmakers & Betfair SP – The racing tipster quoting fair & achievable odds

Last week saw the release of the very latest SBC Magazine – Issue 108 which featured reviews of 3 new winning tipsters to help in your profitable betting quest.

Chief amongst them was our exploration of ‘The Betting Man service, which since inception back in November 2017 has produced some exceptional results, having made 328 points at 27.2% Return on Investment.

In fact since our original review was published – he has picked up an extra 28 points profit, including a 16/1 winner on Friday, so he remains in red-hot form.

Yet as good as his form has been, as tipster reviewers we always need to delve much deeper than simple headline profit figures to get the real lowdown on how good a service really is – including one of the most vital topics – Odds Movement.

Odds Tracking & Movement Analysis

In today’s racing betting world – one thing we must always explore before considering joining a tipster is exactly how fair the odds they quote actually are.

Because if a tipster puts up a bet at 16/1, yet this price is slashed within seconds to 12/1, before going into 8/1 within 15 minutes, then the reality is that it will be very difficult to match the prices quoted. A tipster good in theory, but not in practice.

Therefore, as part of our detailed tipster review process, we run an odds tracking analysis study, which gauges the odds a tipster quotes and how quickly these prices move (or not) over time. Exploring the practicality of following a tipster in the real world.

In The Betting Man’s case we tracked the odds movement of his tips for 2 1/2 months from a group of major bookmakers. Comparing his advised odds with those immediately available upon receipt of his tips, the best odds after 15 minutes had elapsed, at 1030am and finally at SP.

During this 2 1/2 month odds tracking period, The Betting Man had a fantastic time, making a ROI of 54.3% and over 100 points profit so it was an intriguing time to run such a study!

Here are the results of it:

The key figure to look at here is the ROI Difference percentage as the odds available upon the tips being received were actually 3.2% better than those he was advising.

Suggesting that the quoted odds are fair and actually can be beaten by using a website like Oddschecker to source the best prices.

After 15 minutes the ROI difference is still positive, although only at 0.2% – but still the point remains that the advised odds can be matched as long as betting within 15 minutes.

Beyond that – we did see some movement with a drop of 17.8% ROI down to 36.6% if betting at 10.30am and a 30% ROI drop at SP. The latter is not surprising as no-one should bet at SP these days, but what it does tell you is the edge The Betting Man has over the market.

Odds Findings – Summary

To summarise – it seemed clear to us that as long as backing The Betting Man’s selections within the first 15 minutes, you should easily match, if not beat his advised odds and obtain a similar level of performance.

There is movement come 10.30am although we do have a concern that the drop off in ROI is somewhat exaggerated due to the exceptional run of form during this tracking period.

Betfair SP Performance

In each review, we also examine the potential profitability of following any such tipster on the betting exchanges, including at Betfair SP after 5% commission is deducted on each winner.

Our analysis indicated that The Betting Man has been very profitable to date backing at Betfair SP with a 37.3% ROI from the 573 bets we were able to match to an external data source (all at 1 point level stakes)

Here is the full comparison of the 573 bets we matched:

Despite this strong performance, we would prefer to see a larger sample of bets first before recommending this as a bonafide Betfair SP service, although it is certainly an angle worth keeping an eye on.

A Truly ‘Ordinary Punter’ Representative Awards

We will be publishing the results of your votes early next year in the SBC Awards big reveal with a special focus given to the winners of each category.

Because these categories are voted for by you – the general public, they are also truly representative of those in the betting world that are worthy of greater recognition and making a real difference to your punting.

Far too many award ceremonies at this time of year simply serve to recognise those companies with the biggest profile, deepest pockets and ultimately those making money at punters expense.

This is where the SBC Awards are different, because they are based on the Smart Betting Club ethos of helping ordinary punters make money betting.

So we are looking to recognise those really helping you make ‘an edge betting’ whether it be in the information or resource they provide OR by simply offering you the best place to bet itself.

It’s not just the ‘best of’ in our sights either as we are not afraid to name and shame the worst bookmakers through these awards, because lets face it – many still treat punters as second-class citizens, especially those with the temerity to want to make money betting.

So if you want to help reward the best and decry the worst- make sure you cast your votes now.

Best Regards,
