SBC Case Studies: The 2 punters up a combined 65k simply by using the right tipsters

Earlier this week I was chatting to a couple of long-standing Smart Betting Club members about their betting performance and was very pleased to hear that both of them had enjoyed some tremendous success since joining a few years back.

Darren (as you can read about below) is up 30k since 2015 and K.F. (he requested I use his initials only) is up 35k since 2016 – simply by following the right tipsters.

So to help understand more on their success stories, I asked them if they would mind answering a few questions on their time with the service. Both agreed and you can read Darren’s story below and K.F.s  via this link.

Both Darren & K.F.s experiences back up my belief that with the right information on the best tipsters to follow, an understanding of the fundamentals of betting properly (staking plans, betting banks, a patient mindset etc..) and where and when to bet (the best exchanges, bookmakers for sustainable punting) It is possible to make a profit betting, regardless of your background.

But don’t just take my word for it, listen first of all to Darren who shared below in his own words his experience as a Smart Betting Club member...

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

2015

What sports do you bet on?

Racing, Football and Golf

How many tipsters do you follow?

At the moment I follow 3 racing tipsters, 1 football and 1 golf but i’d like to add another football and golf tipster and possibly introduce some tennis

Why did you join the Smart Betting Club?

Prior to joining the SBC I bet only for fun, to give me an interest in the match or race i was watching. My main types of bet were big acca’s at the weekend and sticking a pin in the paper to pick a lucky 15 at Cheltenham. The SBC introduced me to people who actually knew what they were talking about and had a genuine edge over the bookie, which is the main reason i joined the SBC.

How has the Smart Betting Club helped you?

The main way that the SBC has helped me is that it’s introduced me to tipsters who enable me to make a profit year on year. Without the SBC it would have been unlikely that I’d have stumbled across these people on my own. However, the SBC does more than just suggest tipsters to follow. It has broadened my knowledge of betting significantly and has raised my awareness on account restrictions, staying under the bookies radar, the meaning of value, betting banks, odds movement, importance of record keeping, how to deal with losing runs, not getting carried away when going through good spells etc.Knowledge of all of these little things combine to enable you to turn a profit long term. Without this understanding it’ll be pretty difficult to become a long term winner.

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

My favourite aspect of the SBC is actually Rowan’s Bet Diary. Trying to make money following a portfolio of tipsters has plenty of ups and downs and it isn’t as simple as receiving tips, putting bets on and becoming rich. The bet diary gives you an insight into how someone else in the same position copes with these ups and downs. The things i’ve learned from Rowan have been invaluable. The SBC Magazines and Tipster Profit Reports are excellent and contain everything you need to consider when choosing a tipster to follow.

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

£30k

What are your betting plans for the future?

For the past 4-5 years my betting has produced enough profit to pay for some family holidays each year, however the past year or so has been my most successful yet. This has allowed me to add more tipsters and raise stakes which will help in achieving the long term goal of turning betting into a regular 2nd income that at least matches my annual salary each year.

SBC 2019 Awards – The Results Are In!

The results from the 2019 Smart Betting Club Awards – featuring details on who you voted for in 4 public voting categories: Best Betting Website, Best Betting Podcast, Best Bookmaker & Worst Bookmaker.

And as these Awards are based on your votes and with more than 3000 of you casting them in each category during December 2018, the results are widely representative of the best and worst of the betting world.

In particular – the Worst Bookmaker Award (AKA the ‘golden toilet’) is always hugely competitive and this year was no different with your votes spread closely amongst all 8 nominees with the worst firm polling only 10% more than the 8th ranked.

You can read the full rundown on the 4 public Awards and the winners now via the 2019 SBC Awards page.

Why These Awards Matter

Because these 4 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.

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

Through the Worst Bookmaker Award, we are not afraid to name and shame the bookmakers deserving of criticism, because lets face it – many still treat punters as second-class citizens, especially those with the temerity to want to make money betting.

You can read the full rundown on the 4 public Awards and the winners now via the 2019 SBC Awards page.

Get Betting Fit For 2019: My 5 Point Guide To Success

 

Get your betting in shape for 2019 with the help of my Personal Trainer Punting Plan.

2 days into the New Year and if you are anything like me, chances are you have already taken yourself off to the gym to try and burn off the many mince pies consumed over the festive period.

January is always a bumper month for gym owners, but the sad reality is that most people signing-up to get fit will never stick it out and give up within the first few weeks, out of pocket and out of shape.

Yet, one of the best ways to stick at a fitness regime is to sign-up with a Personal Trainer, somebody who has the expertise, accountability and motivation to get you fit.

And this is where the parallel with betting comes in, because if your New Year’s Resolutions involve making more money betting, you can really benefit from an expert betting ‘Personal Trainer’….someone to help get you Bet-Fit!

So whilst I can’t be there to place each bet for you or shout at you to do that difficult 75th sit-up, here is my simple 5-Step Betting Profits ‘Personal Trainer’ Punting Plan for 2019 to get you started…

 

1) Hire The Right Experts

Why exactly do people follow tipsters?

It’s a question I am regularly posed and the answer is quite simple:

Shrewd punters follow winning tipsters because they have the expertise they need to make a profit betting.

Just as most people would call a electrician to re-wire a house or a plumber to fix a leak, so too it makes sense to hire a good tipster for betting advice.

Yet whilst most of us wouldn’t think twice about hiring a electrician or plumber for their specific expertise, some people do when it comes to betting advice.

For me that makes no sense, especially given the wide range of tipsters with proven track records of beating the bookmaker year-in, year-out within our expert reports.

If you don’t have the time or expertise needed to know more than a bookmaker on your chosen sport or market, then there is no shame in hiring someone who does.

Especially if they can add a few zeros onto your bookie account balance!

2) Don’t Be Deterred When You Lose – You Will Make It Back

Despite what some may say, successful betting is not about making a guaranteed profit every day or week. There should never be any ‘lucky last race’ to try and turn a bad day around.

Real success betting comes to those who DON’T worry about short-term bad runs of form. After all losing runs happen to EVERY punter and its how you deal with them that matters most.

One quote in a book on trading I read recently jumped out at me, where one successful stock market expert put it very well about how he handled losing:

“It never bothered me to lose, because I always knew that I would make it right back”

So, if you have a profitable method or tipster that works, then look at what they make over the long-term – which often means evaluating their performance over months and years (and not days or weeks)

Just as you wouldn’t join a gym on January 1st and expect to have a body like Cristiano Ronaldo on February 1st, so too must you do the same when betting. Be realistic and look for steady gains, not instant results.

Top Tip: Read Rowan’s Free Bet Diary throughout 2019 on the tipsters he has followed profitably for the past few years. Not all of the tipsters he follows win every month, yet over a longer-period, they have continued to make him a superb profit.

3) Start Slowly & Build Gradually

Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither should you expect to make huge profits immediately when betting.

Yet, I still hear from the occasional ‘newbie’ punter who jumps right in at big stakes. For them it’s all or nothing and they simply want to get rich quick.

Such a quest can easily unravel as many inexperienced punters struggle to handle the pressure of betting at huge stakes.

It might be down to not following a recommended staking plan, being unnerved after hitting a few losers or simply because the tipster in question doesn’t suit the way you like to bet.

My suggestion therefore is to start slowly, choose a few tipsters that suit your needs and to stake at affordable levels.

Don’t run before you can walk when betting!

Top Tip: Look for some of SBC’s Hall of Fame recommended tipsters who allow you to bet at low stakes and still make a fine profit. Ideal to get started with.

4) Watch For So-Called Guru’s & Fads

Every new year I see a whole host of new ‘betting gurus’ promising quick-fixes, cheats and easy solutions to help with our resolutions.

Whether it’s a new fad diet, wonder product to help stop smoking, or for those of us in the betting world – amazing new tipsters or betting systems. These so-called ‘gurus’ tout their wares using compelling sales material all designed to encourage us to think ‘Hey this quick-fix could actually work for me!’

Sadly, in 99% of all cases, these ‘gurus’ are touting nothing but hot air.

It’s a major problem on social media, especially with those tipsters who promote accumulator challenges. The majority of these tipsters make their profits from a share of the losses you suffer with their recommended bookmakers. It’s in their interests for you to lose, not win.

Instead, forget all about betting ‘gurus’ who promise the earth. They don’t exist in reality and those offering such quick-fixes prey on our vulnerabilities.

If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

Top Tip: My advice is to focus on the top tipsters as can be sourced in our regular Tipster Profit Reports. They might not promise you a life changing 10-leg winning acca, but they will make you steady, reliable profits long-term.

5) Are You Betting For Kicks Or To Make Money?

One of the biggest emotional hits for any punter comes in watching a bet you have placed as it happens.

Whether it’s following a football game on TV or a horse race you have a bet on – nothing quite gets the heart rate going, especially when it’s a close run thing.

The problem here is that such emotions do nothing to help your rational thinking or your betting.

And it begs the question: Are you betting for kicks or to actually win money long-term?

It can quickly become addictive to seek the ‘hit’ that a winning bet brings about and before you know it, rather than looking for value bets, you simply start to look for winners (whatever the odds). Never a good strategy.

Coupled with the fact that studies have found that a losing bet hurts you twice as much as the enjoyment gained from a winning bet and you have a recipe for disaster.

Yet if you follow a good tipster, then there is simply no need to watch every bet live as you are not the one selecting it.

Top Tip: Trust a quality tipster to advise the best tips – then place the bets & walk away – only checking the results at the end of the day. By not watching your bets unfold live, you will find your betting is that much easier to handle – win or lose!

Expert Help Betting All Year Round

As helpful as my 5 tips might be, one of the best ways to make any new year’s resolution a success is in having proven experts to guide you along the way.

At the Smart Betting Club, we have over 13 years experience of helping people make money betting and have plenty on offer to help you make 2019 your best punting year yet.

So if looking for a betting ‘Personal Trainer’ why not give us a try as with our 90-day risk-free refund guarantee you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

After all, we might not be able to make you fitter or stop you eating too much chocolate, but we know a thing or two about making money betting!
