More pro-punter advice: betting banks, setup guidance & the winning difference they can make

In my blog post last week, I spoke about the importance of patience, emotional detachment from your bets and a long-term vision and today I want to expand further on this with more professional punting advice.

In particular I want to talk about another term many punters run away from, namely that of ‘betting banks’

Whether you are backing your tips, running a system or following a tipster – a betting bank is absolutely imperative.

A good betting bank will allow you to keep track of your performance, stake sensibly, avoid going broke and ultimately to maximise your profits . As the example I share later on where a simple £10 stake has made £1334.08 over the past 12 months will testify

Experience tells me that many punters avoid betting banks either through ignorance or through a lack of understand as to how they work.

Yet, I am here to tell you that betting banks are very simple indeed and to show you how they work…

A different betting bank for each tipster

First off, I always recommend you have a separate betting bank for each tipster you follow.

This is because each tipster has a different staking plan, different strike-rate and requires its own individual approach.

For example – if you had a tipster with a 10% strike-rate, a 50 point betting bank would be far too small. As this excellent don’t go broke table outlines, at a 10% strike-rate, you would have a 25% chance of hitting 51 losers on the bounce over a sequence of 600 to 650 bets. 51 losers on the bounce would break a 50 point betting bank.

Yet if you had a tipster with a 30% strike-rate, there is a less than 1% chance of a losing run 28 tips strong over the same period. So, at very worst, you might only lose 28 points of your 50 point betting bank. Not ideal but covered by your betting bank.

Real-life example

To explain more, allow me to outline how the betting bank works for the tipster I focused on last week from the latest SBC Tipster Profit Report, which has made a ROI of 49.2% over the past 12 months.


We recommend a 100 points betting bank for this service based on our extensive modelling on the profile of bets they supply.

To briefly outline why it’s 100 points – we took into account their biggest drawdown since conception in 2009 and viewed what might have happened in the absolute worst context. That is if you joined on the exact day the worst run started.

The chart below outlines these worst runs over time, which as you can see has peaked at around 46 points, whilst also has broken the 40 point loss barrier on 3 other occasions over the years.

Screen Shot 2018-07-06 at 14.39.12

As we know this service has a strike-rate of 16%, using the don’t go broke table again, we can also see there is a:

  • 75% chance of 24 losers on the bounce every 600-650 bets
  • 50% chance of 29 losers on the bounce every 600-650 bets
  • 25% chance of 34 losers on the bounce every 600-650 bets
  • Less than 1% chance of 53 losers on the bounce every 600-650 bets

This data certainly seems to ring true with several runs dropping between 20 and 30 points on top of a few in excess of 40 points. We haven’t yet hit the 53 point drawdown yet, although that always remains a statistical possibility and we would be foolish to ignore it.

Adding in extra cushion should the worst happen!

Despite the fact the worst runs seem to be peaking out at 46 points historically and 53 points theoretically, our approach here at SBC is to add in extra cushion to your betting bank beyond this to cater for the worst case scenario.

The reality is that if you had just a 60 point betting bank, most punters would have given up once they lost half or more of it during a bad run.

On paper you might think you could stand such a run but experience tells us quite the opposite rings true.

I see it all the time unfortunately – punters giving up the ghost on a good tipster or method simply because they had an inadequate betting bank.

All of which is why our policy here at SBC is to add in extra cushion and to recommend a 100 points betting bank for this service.

Yes – you might not ever need the full 100 points (let’s hope not) but when the runs of 30 or 40 points happen – as they always will – then you are covered.

The power of betting banks

The other major advantage of a betting bank is that it is very easy to see how much money you could make following a tipster using them.

Taking our example tipster, for whom we recommend a 100 point bank – with a starting pot of £1000 and staking £10 per bet, you would have made a £1,334.88 profit after the tipsters cost has been deducted.

At £5000 this grows even further to £7,493.28 profit after tipster costs. All over the past 12 months.

See what I mean here…


And because this is a tipster that has a fantastic track record historically, you could have made even more dating back 7 years with him.

That £1000 starting pot would have made £4,103.16 after fees and £5000 will have returned a £26,247.96 profit.


Not bad for a simple 1 bet a day strategy and even one that has had losing runs as big as 45 points during this 7 year period.

Betting Bank Advice Across Every Tipster

For each tipster we review and recommend here at SBC, we provide betting bank suggestions for you to use.

This helps to provide you with peace of mind that we have analysed their historical and theoretical data in depth and put together an optimised betting bank that will cover all bases.

And as our policy of ensuring you lose no more than around 50% of your bank during the absolute worst runs will attest – this is not a risky strategy either. Plenty of cushion has been factored in.

The betting tactics all pro-punters have in common – expert guidance on what it takes to win

One of the most important qualities a winning punter should have is an ability to detach themselves emotionally from their betting.

Most of the pro-punters I have come across in my 12 years at the Smart Betting Club have this quality in common.

A cold, calculated ability to view the outcome of bets they have placed – win or lose with a simple shrug of the shoulders and as lines of red or black on a spreadsheet.

Very often they don’t even watch the bets as they happen.

Instead choosing to update their betting figures at the end of a day, week or month. Again, this is all part of the emotional detachment because if you don’t live each bet out win or lose – it can’t impact you or your betting habits negatively.

You can tell this is the right approach as bookmakers want you to treat your betting differently and to act extremely emotionally.

Compelling you to bet to make a game more interesting, to be closer to the action or that it somehow matters more when there is money on it.

None of which is of course true. Yet they sell their products like this because they know that the more emotionally involved with your bets you are, the more likely you are to bet irrationally.

Even when you are winning and everything you bet on seems to turn to gold – they know if you bet emotionally, then you are more likely to risk more to maximise your hot streak (which is often simple randomness at play) and ultimately hand all your winnings back when the losers inevitably hit again.

All of which goes back to the old mantra – do the opposite of what the bookmaker wants you to do, because there will only be one winner long-term, it’s either you or them and despite what they say, they are not your friend. Not many billion-dollar businesses tend to be!

A Big Dirty Word

The other quality you need in conjunction with emotional detachment is patience.

It’s a totally boring concept and one losing punters reject straight away. To them it’s a dirty word and usually because they are betting with emotion, which immediately makes being patient very difficult indeed.

Yet, ultimately patience is crucial and it’s one reason you can only join the Smart Betting Club for a minimum of 1 year. We do this because we know there is little point in you signing-up unless you are willing to give betting professionally with us at least that time period.

If you are only going to give professional betting a couple of weeks to make you a profit, then you will probably only lose money. This is because you will give up at the first few sign of a few losers and not stick around long-enough for the winners to come in again.

I am not saying that you won’t start to win money within your first few months betting, yet depending on when you start and the tipsters you choose from those we recommend, every punter’s experience will be different and you might need to be patient to reap the benefits.

To outline what I mean by the need for patience, I want to use a classic example from the latest Tipster Profit Report and focus on the tipster on the front cover with a ROI of 49.2% over the past 12 months.

Huge Profits From This Recommended Tipster

This is a Hall of Fame rated racing tipster, providing a 1-bet-a-day strategy that is very easy to follow. Taking no more than a couple of minutes time daily, it has made a profit of 154 points from 313 bets at 49.2% ROI since the 1st June 2017.

Depending on when you joined this tipster, your experience will be different and it’s only patience (that dirty word again) that will see you make a profit sometimes.

Firstly, let me show you their profit and loss table from the past 12 months, broken down into bet number, stakes, profit/loss and ROI.WW290618_02

This table tells us that 9 out of 12 months were profitable with some particularly strong performance over the year. Everything looks rosy and how you could you not make a profit following this tipster?

Well, you would be surprised how many punters, especially those betting emotionally or without patience will have struggled.

Had you joined on the 1st September 2017, come the end of October 2017 you will have actually posted a 23.6 point loss over 48 bets. At this point you might well be thinking ‘Well, I have given it 2 months and I’ve only lost money – should I stick with it’?

Even if you had continued following until the end of February 2018, over this 6-month period, you would only be showing a 7.16 point profit from 157 bets. From my experience, most people at this point would have already quit and moved onto another tipster in the mistaken belief they were wasting their time.

Yet as we know from the above table, they would be wrong to as March to May 2018 made a huge 84.34 points profit and over this 9 month period as a whole, a total of 91.50 points profit would have been accrued. Job done.

At simple £50 stakes, that is a superb profit of £4,575.00 over just 9 months

Don’t throw in the towel too soon

The sad truth is that many punters, had they started on the 1st September would have thrown in the towel long-before this tipster service was ever given the chance to show why we rate them so highly.

And often this will be down to the fact they are living out each bet win or lose on a daily basis – which in turn affects an ability to be patient and to make betting decisions without emotion.

So, to help overcome this problem – we provide lots of information via our reviews, tipster tables and key facts pages to provide assistance and guidance on tipsters when you need it.

For example – the tipster I reference above has a huge database of past results that show their edge – just shy of 3000 bets dating back to 2009. Providing confidence and assurance that they know what they are doing, even if short-term results indicate otherwise.

You can read about this long-term edge in our past reviews of this tipster, league tables of long-term performance and key facts pages (all of which are available with an SBC membership).

Helping to provide reassurance during bad runs when they hit (as they always do – no punter wins all the time) that you are on track.

The power of hindsight

Ultimately, nobody knows without the power of hindsight when a good or bad betting run will hit, so it’s only emotional detachment from your punting and patience that will see you through.

It might be unsexy and exactly what the bookie doesn’t want you to do – but that’s the life of a winning punter. Being boring and doing the opposite of everyone else!

You can’t make money backing favourites…Or can you?


“You can’t make money backing favourites”

…Or so goes the famous phrase favoured by many in the betting world on the notion that it’s only mugs who bet at short prices.

Yet the reality is that betting (like most things in life) is not quite so black and white and you can make money backing favourites…as long as you back the right ones…

The right favourites – such as those put forward by the ‘myth-busting’ racing tipster featured in the latest SBC Magazine (Issue 104) who has made a fine profit backing short horses.

Our review of this tipster found that over the course of 1676 bets advised over 2 and a bit years, he had made a baseline profit of 5% Return on Investment (ROI).

For those who prefer to concentrate on Return on Capital (ROC) this equated to a figure of 140% over the same period.

To put that into easy to understand financial figures…

  • A £1000 starting betting bank would have grown to £2,400.
  • A £5000 starting betting bank would have grown to £12,000.
  • A £10000 starting betting bank would have grown to £24,000.


And best of all – solely from backing favourites.

Although it’s fair to point out that it’s not always the favourite he tips up, but sometimes also the second favourite – in general it’s selections 5/2 and below at the front of the market

Ultimately – the saying “You can’t make money backing favourites” should really read “You can’t make money backing bad value favourites” as therein lies the difference between making a profit or loss betting.

If you are taking 9/4 on a bet that should be 6/4, long-term you will make a profit. Just as you might taking 20/1 about a bet that should be 10/1.

So, the next time someone tells you that backing favourites is a mugs game…you know what to say!

SBC 104 468X60

Major Benefits Of Backing Favourites

There are also some very important additional benefits from backing favourites to be aware of – here are 4 of the most relevant:

1. It’s easy to improve profits with Best Odds Guaranteed offers

I used the word ‘baseline profits’ when discussing the tipster above as the reality is that you can easily improve the profit figures if you have access to the Best Odds Guarantee concession in your bookmaker account.

We equated the potential to improve your ROI by as much as 5.4% simply by using Best Odds Guarantee offers.

As many as 40% of all bets drifted after being advised by this tipster and were therefore subject to a better price if taking Best Odds Guaranteed.

2. Hit a high strike-rate – easier on you mentally

If you are one of those punters who struggle when facing a losing run, then a short priced tipster might be the right answer for you. After all – not everyone is cut out to handle low strike-rates, nor have the patience to wait for the winners to hit home.

This favourite-backing tipster has a high strike-rate of 43.1% from the 1676 bets with 723 winners and 953 losers during this period.

Ensuring in general, short losing runs and a regular supply of winners to put your mind at rest!

3. You can get on with the bookies – even if you win

Perhaps best of all, favourites are very easy to bet with the bookies as they know most punters backing them will be long-term losers.

Your betting account might show a fair profit but when they see its from backing horses at 5/2 and under – they will often assume that in time you will lose and you have been lucky thus far. Even if you are chucking £100, £200 (or more) on these tips to win.

Making backing short priced tips such as those advised by this tipster ideal for those of you worried about betting restrictions. It’s just a fact that if you are backing 2/1 winners instead of 20/1 winners, your betting account is much more likely to go un-restricted.

4. A genuine betting-exchange option

Even if you can no longer bet with bookmakers, this favourite tipster is very easy to follow on the betting exchanges.

Our analysis found that you can actually IMPROVE your profits by as much as 1.1% ROI by simply taking better odds available 15 minutes after the tips are advised.

At the time these tips are put forward (10am) there is also considerable money available to trade on all betting exchanges and we found no issues getting our bets matched on these favourites.

So, if you are limited to betting with exchanges like Betfair, Smarkets, Betdaq or Matchbook, it’s a very valid option for you.

Read All About It In SBC 104

Inside the review you can also find details on how you can save 25% on the cost of joining this tipster as an SBC member.

How Much Can A Tipster Really Make You?

That is the question I was posed recently by a punter intrigued by what we do here at SBC, yet ultimately unsure on just how much they could make betting with our help.

After all, once you take into consideration tipster fees and the time and effort getting your bets on – is it worth your while?

Judging by the frequency I hear this question, it appears to be something on a lot of punters minds.

So I thought I would tackle this question today, using some examples from our latest Tipster Profit Report, such as the tipster that made a £12,707 clear profit from just a £2,000 starting point in the past 12 months.

…And the combination of 15 tipsters that made £35,137 in 12 months AFTER all tipster subscription fees were taken into account. Let me reveal more:

TPR November 17 468X60

A World Away From Backing 5/4 Horses Each Way

The first thing to make clear about the tipping world is that it has moved on significantly since the Smart Betting Club first started way back in 2006.

Forget the prehistoric tipsters putting up 5/4 shots each way or advising you to ring their premium £1.99 a minute hotline for their latest odds-on tip.

Whilst you might still find a few of these prehistoric types advertising in the Racing Post (a topic for another day), the tipster world has moved on. Nowadays, there are many highly professional and well regarded tipster services with a history of genuinely achievable profits behind them, generated over several years.

They put their customers first, settle their bets at realistic odds and best of all – are simple to follow.

The very best tipsters can be found in what we term our ‘Hall of Fame’ – which are those tipsters we recommend as offering an excellent level of service at reasonable prices, which are best of all profitable.

The ‘Suggested Profits’ You Can Make With Tipsters

So to go back to the original question and just how much a tipster can make you?

To explore this, it’s worth checking out the ‘Suggested Profits’ tables we publish in each Tipster Profit Report – an example as taken from the last report I have copied below.

These reports gives you the latest on the best tipsters and just how much they have made on an ongoing basis. Enabling you to find the best, in-form experts and those consistently ahead of the bookie.

There are currently 15 racing tipsters in our Hall of Fame (we list a separate table dedicated to sports tipsters) and here are the Suggested Profits for each of them from the past 12 months:


I have had to remove the tipster names as this is for Smart Betting Club members only (sorry – that’s the secret bit) but as you can see the profits on offer are vast.

As a combination of all 15 they have made a profit of £35,137 for a monthly outlay of £863 per month (not that I would expect anyone to follow all of them)

Here are some other key figures:

• ‘Tipster 14’ enjoyed the best profit, making a mind-boggling £12,707 profit from a £2,000 starting point after membership fees over the past year.

• Also impressing is ‘Tipster 10’ who made a £4,310 profit from a starting bank of £2,000 for an outlay of just £50 per month.

• 11 of the 15 tipsters made a profit in the past 12 months. Ideally it would be all 15, but at least you know this table is realistic because not every tipster wins over a rolling 12 month period.

• Of the 4 tipsters that made a loss – these were in general very small deficits (e.g. £20, £34 and £40). Crucially all 4 have excellent long-term records.

• The average age of a Hall of Fame racing tipster is over 5 years – showcasing how long these services have been advising bets and why they can be trusted.

Realistic Profits AFTER Fees Are Deducted

The suggested profits table above should also help answer another common question, namely:

Exactly how much money can you make after you pay for a tipster in the first place?

All the profits listed above are AFTER fees have been deducted from the final sum. So for example, the £2,632 profit made by ‘Tipster 1’ is after the £27 monthly fees have been removed.

In terms of what you can expect to pay for a top tipster, the average cost sits around the £30 marker, although this does depend on many factors. Generally, the more exclusive a tipster service (i.e. those that keep membership numbers very low to protect odds) then the higher the subscription cost.

It is worth pointing out that as an SBC member you can benefit from several exclusive discounts and free trials to many of these tipsters, which reduces these costs further too.


You Don’t Need Huge Sums To Get Started

One thing you shouldn’t be is put off by the size of the suggested betting banks on offer in the table above.

We put these together as an example, but many people can and do follow these tipsters with much less. You certainly don’t need £5,000 to get started betting profitably – far from it!

Many SBC members enjoying success from their betting started off with much smaller amounts initially and gradually built up their betting banks with the profits recouped.

After all, betting for profit is not a sprint – you should take your time to get it right.

Get Betting Fit For 2018: My 5 Point Guide To Success


Get your betting in shape for 2018 with the help of my Punting Personal Trainer Plan.

A few 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.

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 punting, 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 66th sit-up, here is my simple 5-Step Betting Profits ‘Personal Trainer’ Plan for 2018 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 people wouldn’t think twice about hiring a electrician or plumber for their specific expertise, they do when it comes to their betting.

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 SBC’s 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 Bothered About Losing – 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 very 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 Bet Diary throughout 2018 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 our recommended staking plan for the tipster, hitting a few losers or simply because the tipster in question doesn’t suit the way you like to bet (or even which bookmakers they can bet with).

My suggestion therefore is to start slowly, choose a few tipsters that suit your profile 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 Gurus

Every new year I see a whole host of new ‘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 quick-fixes. They don’t exist and these gurus prey on our vulnerabilities.

Top Tip – my advice is focus on the top tipsters as featured in our latest Tipster Profit Report. 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 reading live commentary text on 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.

Trust the tipster to select the tip, place it and check the result at the end of the day. At a stroke, 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 12 years experience of helping people make money betting and have plenty on offer to help you make 2018 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!

SBC Guide: How To Improve Your Profits With Betting Banks

One of the simplest, yet most important things you can do when following a tipster, system or even your own betting – is to setup the right betting bank.

And whilst betting banks might not be the ‘sexiest’ topic in the world, getting them setup right can make a massive difference to your betting bottom-line.

In today’s email I am going to show you just how using the real-life example of the SBC Hall of Fame tipster that turned £2000 into £6,278.80 (after fees) using a betting bank.

(Best of all – even with a £500 betting bank, you will have made a profit of over £1200 in the past 12 months, so you don’t need large sums to get going!)

Betting banks are also hugely important as I have seen too many people lose money they shouldn’t have, simply because they didn’t set one up.

And the daft thing is – they are so easy to understand and implement, that once you start working to a simple betting bank, you won’t look back! It will become your default thing to do whenever you follow a new tipster, system or method.

After all anything that can help minimise losers and enhance winners has to be a good thing right?

SBC 102 468X60

What Are Betting Banks?

Firstly then, a short guide to what betting banks are and how they work from the point of view of following a tipster service (like the many we recommend here at SBC).

Simply put, a betting bank is a set amount of money that you put aside for each tipster that you follow so as to make you the most effective return. I.e. the biggest bang for your buck!

For each tipster that you follow, you should have a separate and designated betting bank.

A good betting bank will:

  • Protect you from losses caused by inevitable losing runs.
  • Stop you from going bust!
  • Keep your staking nice and consistent.
  • Help to maximize effectively how much profit you make during the good times.
  • Help you keep a track on how much you are making overall!

The good news is that setting up a betting bank is extremely simple and here at the Smart Betting Club we provide advice on doing just that for each tipster we review and report back upon.

But before I talk more on that, first here is how to set up a betting bank…

How To Setup A Betting Bank

Betting Banks can be split up into two distinct types as follows:

1. Points Betting Bank (PBB)
2. Financial Betting Bank (PBB)

1. Points Betting Bank

Most tipsters will advise staking in terms of ‘points’. This generally varies from 1 point up to 10 points.

A Points Betting Bank will then tell you how much to stake in real £ (or euros, dollars – whatever your chosen currency) on each tip.

E.g. If you have £1000 and follow a tipster using a 50-point betting bank, 1 point would equal £20. More on how to make this calculation later.

Points Betting Bank: Rule of thumb

For each tipster we monitor here at SBC, we calculate the optimal amount of points you need to assign into a betting bank.

This protects you from losing runs, enhances winning runs, and keeps staking consistent over time.

Each tipster stakes differently so this Points Betting Bank (PBB) is optimised for each individual service. This allows you to stake efficiently with the confidence that your Financial Betting Bank will not go bust.

The PBB for each tipster should at the very least take into account the historical worst losing run for that service. A general rule of thumb is to double the previous longest losing run, so that should such a poor run happen again in the future, then no more than at worst 50% of any betting bank should be lost.

To generate the Smart Betting Club’s own betting bank recommendations, we actually use a special in-house ‘betting bank simulator’ which comes up with a highly tuned figure for optimal returns. So as a member, you know we have your bank and back covered!

2. Financial Betting Bank

Of course the amount of money you can actually make from following a tipster depends on the real-life Financial Betting Bank (FBB) you can apply to it.

This refers to the amount of money you set aside to follow a service, when considering the Points Betting Bank. This FBB amount is related to the PBB as we will go on to demonstrate in the example below.

This FBB amount should be an amount of money you feel comfortable risking in following a particular tipster.

This should be a lump sum of money you have available for investment and should be separate to funds needed for living expenses

Real Betting Bank Example – Top Racing Tips

To show how the PBB and FBB come together, let me use a real life example as taken from a recent Tipster Profit Report.

This example tipster is very profitable indeed, although as its identify is reserved for SBC members only, for the purposes of this email, l will call them ‘Top Racing Tips’.

Our points betting bank recommendation for Top Racing Tips is 100 points.

This figure takes into account historical losing runs, and the current method of staking that Top Racing Tips investments utilises.

If following Top Racing Tips over the past 12 months this service would have made you 336.44 points profit to their advised staking.

Let’s say we decide to follow Top Racing Tips with a FBB of £2,000 in real money.

  1. We then divide the FBB by the PBB to get our staking per point.
  2. 2000/100 = £20. Therefore £20 is our stake per point.
  3. As this tipster made 336.44 points over the past year, we multiply that by your stake of £20 over the past year.

That brings an actual real world profit of £6,728.80

This particular tipster charges £135 per quarter or £450 for annual membership so even if deducting a full year’s subscription, you still would end up nicely in profit.

After fees, a £2000 betting bank over these 12 months would have made you a clear profit of £6,278.80

Profit Figures To Smaller Banks

Of course, you don’t need £2000 to follow this tipster.

You can make a tremendous profit with much lower financial betting banks as follows:

  • £500 bank = £5 per point. Annual profit of £1682.20 (before tipster subscription fees – we recommend the £450 lifetime membership option)
  • £750 bank = £7.50 per point. Annual profit of £2,523.00 (before tipster fees)
  • £1500 bank = £15 per point. Annual profit of ££5,046.60 (before tipster fees)

All of which just goes to show you don’t need to break the bank to get started betting for profit.

After all, there is absolutely no harm in starting small with your betting and developing it as a platform for long-term success.

You should never feel pressurised to instantly start making thousands of pounds in your first few months. Instead, simply allow the returns to gradually evolve over time.

Many of the tipsters we recommend have been making their members money for several years, so there is no rush to make large sums quickly.

Why These Hedge Fund Investors Are Turning To Sports Betting

Earlier this week, Business Insider magazine published a fascinating article about the new sports betting ‘hedge fund’ with one goal: To make money through betting.

This sports betting fund is being run by Stratagem and was founded by Andreas Koukorinis – a veteran of the more traditional financial hedge fund industry. Andreas and his team have seen what we have been banging on about for years here at the Smart Betting Club – that profitable betting is a reality if done right.

It might be betting on a larger scale than usual (they are raising a £25 Million hedge fund to bet with, which although it sounds a lot is relatively small beer for hedge funds per se) but what is most interesting is the methodology behind how they identify the best bets to place. ‘To find mispriced odds where Stratagem has a better chance of winning [than the bookmaker]’

Even more familiar is how Stratagem work out the best bets in the first place. “We collect Twitter feeds, crowdsource videos, market data, we collect from operators, action data we buy from various sources, tech data the analysts write — all of those sources.”

Effectively, Stratagem is gathering data, using the best analysis and analysts and placing bets where the odds are in their favour.

Sounds familiar?

Well it should do as this is effectively what we have been doing for years at the Smart Betting Club. Yet in our case, we exist for the everyday punter, not just those rich enough to invest in a £25 million hedge fund!

Can You Really Make Money Betting?

The article makes a big point about why Koukorinis and the Stratagem CEO, Charles McGarraugh left their traditional jobs in the City of London to be part of this hedge fund upstart.

A clear attempt to address the key question most of its core readers would be wondering: ‘Can you really make money betting’?

Stratagem claim to be doing so and this is no surprise when you consider how accessible and easy it is for punters these days to find the right experts (AKA tipsters) to guide them as to the best bets to place.

The sources that Stratagem use might well be different, yet the approach appears similar – to be shrewder than the bookmaker or exchange market and to bet at value odds.

This is also the approach that SBC’s blogger and pro-punter, Rowan Day takes and his recently released 2016/17 Bet Diary Profit Report outlined how he made a 58.76% growth betting last year. Following up the 64.4% he made in 2015/16.

Best of all – Rowan achieved all this through following a small number of recommended tipsters – Click here to read his free report!

Betting Vs ‘Traditional’ Forms of Investment

Another reason more and more individuals and companies are turning to the betting market as a way to make money is down to the advantages betting holds over other forms of investment.

Whilst the stock and housing markets are considered more traditional forms of making money, in reality, they are also a form of gambling and often at very high stakes.

You are gambling that it’s the right market to invest in or that some unforeseen event won’t take place such as the 2008 crash, Brexit, Donald Trump or a snap UK Election. All of which were very much unexpected by the majority of experts (and betting markets!) and its ultimately a gamble you are investing at the right time.

There are also often significant fees, penalties and taxes on these more ‘traditional’ forms of investment and you regularly need large sums to get started. Plus you might have to wait years to see a return or profit kick in.

Betting, however, is a great leveler as you need very little money to get started, no qualifications, solicitors, estate agents, stockbrokers or lawyers. Anyone can do it!

Like any form of investment, betting comes with its own risks, not least the challenges of handling losing runs and bets when they hit (the biggest leveler there is). Yet with the right setup, discipline and prudent management it does offer a very viable and easy-to-get-started alternative.

Will This Automated Betting Software Place Winning Bets For You?

Self-driving cars, commercial rockets to mars and video technology in football – whichever way you look at it – the future is most definitely almost upon us.

Yet for those of us interested in betting, technology is also having an impact, especially when it comes to automatic bet placement software.

Automatic bet placement is the dream for many punters – software that can open your emails, read a tip, login to your bookie account and place the bet for you.

Even better if the software can sort out your staking, work out the best odds to take and even constantly monitor the betting markets to ensure you get the best value possible.

Sounds like a pipe-dream?

Well it isn’t as this is exactly what the new betting software as reviewed in the latest SBC Magazine – Issue 101 actually does.

It’s new, developing technology with a growing following and growing group of tipsters for whom it works with.

Automate Your Bet Placement

The software in question is a bot which runs on any computer and provides an automated betting platform for punters.

Once setup, you can use the bot to automatically follow those tipsters that you subscribe to and who send you tips via email.

The bot constantly scans your email account, picks out the tips when they arrive (or logs in to pick it up) and will place them as per your settings.

Whether you want to bet at £5 or £50 a go, work to a specific staking plan or request very specific odds, it can also do that.

And best of all – the cost is extremely low as the software takes its cut by charging just 0.25% of your stake of each bet placed. Ensuring you only pay when you use it. (And best of all you can get an extra 18 Euros credit to use it as an SBC member!)

SBC 101 468X60

Putting The Bot Through Its Paces

As part of the detailed SBC review process, I put this bot to the test for several months by following a recommended SBC Tipster proven to work with it.

I installed the bot, configured my settings and put it to work to place automated bets on my behalf.

The results?

Over a 2 month period, the bot placed 115 out of 116 tips advised by the tipster automatically on my behalf and all at good odds.

Only 1 bet was missed (an acceptable margin of error perhaps and something it was unclear as to whether the issue was the tipsters or bots fault) and best of all I mirrored almost exactly the same odds as quoted by the tipster.

As you can see below – the average odds quoted by the tipster were 1.994 and I obtained an average set of odds of 1.993. A difference so marginal it is hardly worth bothering with.

Tipster’s Official Results
Average odds taken: 1.994

Bot Results
Average odds taken: 1.993

Best of all, aside from initial work setting it up and ensuring it ran smoothly, I didn’t lift a finger to place any of these 115 tips. It was all done for me by the bot.

Can It Work For You?

I was hugely impressed by my experience in using the bot – so much so that I am continuing to use it to place tips from several tipsters – all automated on my behalf.

Currently the bot works with several tipsters, although only those that sync up with the bookmaker Pinnacle Sports, so it is restricted to the markets they offer (so no horse racing!).

Plans are in place to expand the bot to work with both Betfair and Bet365, alongside other bookmakers in the near future.

If the idea of automated bet software like this appeals to you then I urge you to check out the detailed review as published in SBC 101.

Best of all – as an SBC member you can also get an exclusive offer of an extra 18 Euros credit when running the bot.

Allowing you to install it and use if first before needing to stump up any cash.

How To Cope When Your Bets Lose | Handling Losing Runs

In my email last week, I touched upon the pain of losing bets, a topic that seems to have spoken to many of you judged by my mailbox over the last 7 days.

Most betting sites or tipsters won’t tackle this subject (for obvious reasons) yet it seems plenty of you are looking for answers on this subject.

Whether it be learning how to stay on track during a losing run, dealing with how losing bets can affect your mood or simply a desire to help you cope better during times of betting adversity – I hope my email today can help provide some assistance.

When it comes to handing losing, it is all part of what I term the ‘battle of the betting mind’

And it is this ‘battle’ that I have seen make the difference between success and failure for many a punter.

Yes, you might be following a profitable tipster, but if I gave 25 random people access to the same tipster and the same setup, I would likely get 25 different sets of results.

The profit and loss for each of the 25 will vary depending on whether they followed the tipster properly in terms of placing every bet, staking consistently, taking the right odds with the right bookmaker and of course how they handle losing bets…

In 2016, I made GBP 38,000 on horse racing “…

Although I’ve changed some of the tipsters I follow, there’s a core group whom I rely on. In 2016, I managed to make GBP 38,000 on horse racing.”

How To Handle Losing Bets – 5 Tips

Fully aware of the challenges many punters face during this ‘battle of the betting mind’, I commissioned a special 54-page Betting Psychology Report, entitled How to get the Betting X-Factor to tackle it in greater detail.

Authored by betting psychology expert, Jeff Smith, his report serves to unravel what lies behind successful sports betting and ultimately help you adopt the mindset of a professional gambler.

Because after all, finding a good tipster is the easiest part (many of our Hall of Fame tipsters tick all the right boxes) but adopting the right mindset requires expert guidance.

For example, one section is dedicated to how ‘thinking in probabilities’ can really help us cope with losing bets and puts forward 5 tips to improve our betting mind.

I have summarised them as follows:

  1. Always believe that anything can happen: Never bet your house on something because you believe something is guaranteed – Who would have thought that New England Patriots would win the Superbowl when 28-3 down!
  2. Understand that you don’t need to know what is going to happen next in order to make money: You take a position on something uncertain like the result of football match, but you can’t control the outcome.
  3. Keep in mind that there is a random distribution between wins and losses for any given set of variables that define an edge. Even a coin flipped 10 times could come up heads every time!
  4. Remember an edge is nothing more than an indication of a higher probability of one thing over another. Just because you backed a horse at 6/1 when it should be 4/1 doesn’t mean it will win! It’s still a 4/1 shot. It will win 1 in every 4 races on average.
  5. Finally, accept that every moment in betting is unique. You’re never ‘due a winner’ and just because you nailed your football bets last weekend doesn’t mean you do it again this weekend. If you backed Man Utd to win last week, it will have no bearing on whether your next bet on Man Utd will win. They are 2 completely separate events.

Mindset of a Pro Gambler

4 Step Success Formula

Inside the report, Jeff also puts forward his own simple 4-step success formula when betting, which he outlines as follows:


Broken down into each part it makes perfect sense.

Get the winning strategy, stake correctly, stick to your budget and as long as YOU can handle the ups and downs of betting, then you will enjoy positive results.

Here is how the Smart Betting Club is setup to help you do exactly this:

  1. Strategy: We track 55+ of the best tipsters and constantly review new ones to put forward the best experts for you to follow. Finding the right tipster is the easy part!
  2. Money Management: Not only do we reveal the best tipsters, we also show you how to follow them correctly with our betting bank recommendations. Discover how much you can safely stake on each tipster to maximise profits and minimise risk.
  3. Capital: We all have different betting budgets, but we can help you whatever your starting point – whether it be following free tipsters (such as the 4 supplied to you as an SBC member) or those that charge a little more. The key point is that any tipster you do follow offers value for money.
  4. You: The final ingredient is how you pull it all together and win the battle of the betting mind. Reports like the Betting X-Factor by Jeff or our Pro Gambler Blueprint will help you on this front.

Stop Losing With These 5 HIGH Strike-Rate Tipsters


2 small words that strike fear into the heart of many a punter.

Yet for all of us aspiring to make a profit betting, dealing with losing bets is something we must face up to.

After all, the chances are that most bets you place will actually lose.

Coupled with the accepted wisdom that the pain felt from a losing bet is at least twice as strong as the joy gained from a winning bet…It all adds up to a far from pleasant experience.

And in my experience running the Smart Betting Club over the years, not being setup correctly to handle losing runs is one of the major reasons punters fail at betting.

So what should you do to avoid being yet another losing punter statistic?

AND what tipsters should you consider following to make your betting journey that much easier!?


How Risky A Punter Are You?

First, it is about knowing what type of punter you are and how much ‘risk’ you can take from your betting.

Put another way – exactly how much of a rollercoaster ride are you willing to experience when betting?

For example, some punters like to follow tipsters putting up bets at big prices to win. 33/1, 20/1, 16/1 shots etc…

The downside to this kind of strategy comes when you consider the vast majority of such tips are going to lose (sometimes very frustratingly!). Yet when they do win, it all pays off! A 33/1 winner will easily wipe out a 20 tip losing streak and leave you with plenty of profit.

Yet for many punters, especially those of you risk-averse, suffering a run of 20 losers on the bounce is a bit too much to bear. There is nothing wrong with you if you fall into this category – you simply need to choose a different type of tipster.

Instead you should look for a higher-strike rate tipster – one who if not winning more than they lose, will still regularly enough to keeping your losing runs short and manageable.

Yet, understanding the type of tipster you need is one thing, finding them another.

Which is where SBC can help as we currently proof, review and report back on 5 different tipsters all of whom fit this criteria.

Let me showcase who they are and how they can help you.

5 High-Strike Rate Profitable Tipsters To Follow

1. Short Odds Football Tipster (47.5% Strike-Rate)

Featured in the 2017 Best Tipster Guide, this specialist football tipster has really impressed us with their consistency and most of all profits.

Since 2010, their winning strategy has hit a 47.5% strike-rate of success by focusing on tips with average odds of 2.43/1. Achieving a 13.6% ROI along the way.

Any losing runs have been short and sharp, making it a perfect option for those of you looking for an easy-to-follow and stable expert.

Best of all if using our recommended Compound Staking approach (as detailed in the 2017 Best Tipster Guide), you can drastically improve your profits by making your money work harder for you.

“£35,310 Profit In 23 Months”……

2. Short Odds Racing Tipster (34.72% Strike-Rate) 

Some horse racing ‘experts’ will have you believe it’s impossible to make money backing favourites.

We know this is a nonsense due to the success of tipsters like our 2nd expert who has made a habit of profiting from backing horses at short odds (usually 3/1 and below).

Hitting a strike-rate of 34.72% long-term, he has proved his success over the last 3 years by making 112 points profit at a ROI of 11.3% backing at such short odds. All from 993 bets – proving this is no fluke!

Best of all, this equates to Betting Bank Growth of 250% in those 3 years alone. And who said backing favourites can’t be profitable?

3. Asian Handicap Football Tipster (53.52% Strike-Rate)

One very popular style of punting (and not just because it normally hits a high strike-rate) comes in the form of ‘Asian Handicap’ football betting.

It’s not rare to see bookmakers trade to tiny margins such as just 2% in these markets, which opens up the opportunity for shrewd punters to take advantage (If you are not familiar with Asian Handicaps, I urge you to check them out – they are really very easy to follow!)

Our very own in-house SBC Asian Handicap service is called AH Edge and it has thrived this season hitting a very high strike-rate of 53.52%, and at average odds of 2.18/1

From 301 tips this season alone, AH Edge has made a profit of 29 points at a ROI of 9.63% and so is ticking all  the right boxes. Profitable and at a high strike-rate with more than 1 in every 2 bets winning.



4. NBA Tipster (56.9% Strike-Rate)

Another very favourable betting market for punters can be found when betting on US Sports such as NBA (Basketball), where huge sums of money are traded at low margins.

One such NBA Tipster we have tracked for several years now has a tried and trusted strategy for maximising profits from these markets – again working to a high strike-rate.

During the current NBA season, his strategy has hit a 56.9% strike-rate at average odds of 1.94/1 to ensure a profit of 60 points at 9.6% Return on Investment so far.

5. Very Short Odds Football Tipster (79.38% Strike-Rate)

The 5th and final tipster has a very unique betting strategy – focusing in on very short priced favourites predominantly on football.

In 2016 alone, he hit a 79.38% strike-rate of winning bets. Almost 4 out of every 5 tips advised went onto win.

Although his average odds for each tip advised is quite low at around 1.29 – the high strike-rate more than ensured he made a clear profit.

I know some of you might think “Hey, anyone can pick short-priced tips” – the reality is you can’t, because if you could, you would be doing it and making a profit from it.

Best of all, this tipster thrives when it comes to what we term Return on Capital as to our fairly cautious banking suggestions, he would have grown your bank by 72.3% in just 2016 alone.

SBC really is a breath of fresh air, offering totally impartial long-term reviews of services truly acting in the best interests of sports betting punters.

Handling Losing Is A Huge Part Of Winning

The topic of losing is not one many betting sites are willing to discuss, yet for me it’s an essential part of betting day-in, day-out. Far too often how you handle losing can be the difference between success and failure.

If you are following the wrong tipsters, staking the wrong amount or simply not using a sensible betting bank, losing runs can and will bite you on the backside.

If you are interested in the 5 tipsters I list above, all of them bar AH Edge can be found in the regular Tipster Profit Reports we publish on behalf of members. We regularly feedback on their ongoing profit/loss in each Tipster Profit Report to keep you on top of who is in form and who to follow with your money.
