ūüé• Practical Demonstration of ‘Hall of Fame’ Pinnacle Odds Dropping Service ūüé•

Last week saw the release of the first review from SBC Magazine Issue #137 as we introduced Chasing Steamers to our members.

Using AI to scrape Pinnacle odds drops, this service provides thousands of monthly bets that can be backed at value prices with soft bookmakers.

We used it extensively as part of our review process and found it to be very good, especially for those of you at Stages 1, 2 or 3 of your profitable betting journey and looking to build a bank.

To accompany our 18 page review, Josh and I recorded a practical 1 hour video explainer last week, a clip of which you can watch by clicking play below:

ūüéßSBC Podcast #65: Flawed Big Name Tipsters, BetMGM’s Value Boosts, Unbelievable ‘Inside Info’ & Using Chasing Steamers

In the latest SBC Podcast I am joined by SBC’s Josh as the¬†Betting Clever¬†podcast returns to tackle a whole host of important topics in the betting world.

We get into what’s going on with affordability checks, why we don’t think much to the petition about it and the reality of using the black market and its growth. We also touch on the Tony Calvin ‘furore’ and the real issues with free tip columns like his, how to take advantage of Bet MGM’s deep pockets and some of the ongoing work we are doing reporting on tipsters.

One tipster of note, which has already attracted a range of questions due to an¬†88% ROI headline & claims of using ‘inside information’¬†is something that we cover in depth. This gives listeners an insight to how we approach new services, what we look out for and how we are collectively quite cynical!

There is much more besides in the podcast linked up below and we have provided some timestamps underneath so that you can skip to different parts of interest.

You can listen to Episode 65 now via Apple / Spotify / Google / YouTube and all other major podcast directories (search Smart Betting Club)

ūüďą A New Generation of Tipsters – Chasing Steamers In Depth Review out now!

A new generation of tipster services are doing something quite different.

Artificial Intelligence, the capacity to process large data sets and the facility to scrape odds and data from sites like Pinnacle make following market moves a viable betting angle for those looking for a considerable edge.

That is exactly what the latest service under the SBC review microscope –¬†Chasing Steamers – has done.

Chasing Steamers is a tipster we have been tracking all year and after building up a considerable bank of nearly 3,000 bets in a personal betting ‘snapshot’, we have been able to test out their their service and conduct our usual analysis in a full review.

This detailed review is out now and available instantly with an SBC Membership (You can also access a 15% SBC member discount on Chasing Steamers too!)

Chasing Steamers – How It Works

Although the technology behind Chasing Steamers may be sophisticated, the underlying principle is not.

When money arrives for a selection on the world’s largest sharp bookmaker, Pinnacle, you receive a Telegram notification informing you of everything you need to know, including:

  1. The selection name
  2. How much the odds have dropped
  3. What odds you need to beat
  4. The minimum odds required for a ‘10% value bet’

 

To profit from this information, all you need to do is back the selection with any bookmaker(s) who are a lot slower to update their odds.

So in the example above, Pinnacle have priced up this player at odds of 2.38, yet he is available with the likes of bet365 at 3.5 (Although Bet365 are used for comparison purposes Рthe reality is you can follow this service with a huge number of bookmakers)

Hundreds of varied betting records have been documented by Christian from Chasing Steamers and to add to the ‘evidence base’, both Josh and I had a period of profitably using the service in real time (with real money!) earlier on this year.

Sign Up For The Full Story (& A Discount!)

Chasing Steamers is a real way to grow a bank and with so many bets provided each day, week and month, it offers the opportunity to do this very quickly.

As with any service, you need to consider things like the amount of time you have available, the bookmaker accounts you have access to and how big your bankroll is before subscribing.

The full lowdown and our analysis of Chasing Steamers is available now with a paid SBC Membership in an 18 page review just published

Best of all, you can also enjoy a 15% discount on ALL Chasing Steamers subscriptions as an SBC member. Saving up to as much as £82.50 on a 12 month package with the service

Detailed reports, practical advice, member only content and considerable discounts are all examples of how we will help SBC Members assess this service but the benefits of membership don’t end there.
