The Spanish football tipster with an 8 year profitable record betting at Pinnacle

Betting and being profitable at Pinnacle is perhaps the holy grail (or pinnacle) of sports betting for shrewd bettors who understand the complexities of betting with normal bookmakers.

Reason being is that Pinnacle does not follow the same business model of UK bookmakers and actually encourages winners to bet on their site meaning no limitations and the opportunity to bet large stakes.

Plus, as it’s one of the sharpest bookmakers around, it means you are clearly doing something right if you are able to make money there.

This is why the latest SBC Tipster Review of the Serpa Bets service is so fascinating as its a football tipping service that has made a profit to Pinnacle quoted odds for several years.

Sergio, the expert behind Serpa Bets is also regularly beating the closing line (i.e. odds at Kick Off) at Pinnacle which, if you know a bit about betting, is the goal you should be aiming for and will secure you profits in the long run.

What does this mean for followers of Serpa Bets?

Well it means 2 things…

  1. If you have access to Pinnacle, either as a non-UK resident or through a broker, you have a ready-made, profitable strategy to use with no limitations or restrictions to face at the bookmaker.
  2. If you do not have access to Pinnacle, you can often get these odds at other more ‘UK-friendly’ bookies/exchanges meaning you too can regularly beat the closing line.

This latest review looks into exactly how the service is essentially beating the ‘sharp’ bookmakers and illustrates how it is beating the closing line.

The numbers are there to prove it as well…since 2013 the service has shown a 5.03% ROI over 1996 bets. That’s a profitable record over 8 years of betting!

Plus, until the end of 2021, Serpa Bets’ tips will be free to SBC members.

More On Serpa Bets

Sergio Perez of Serpa Bets is a Spanish football betting expert, providing followers with betting advice from the Primera (La Liga) and Segunda leagues.

Over the years Sergio has built up an impressive body of work, initially via the tipping platform Blogabet (2014 to 2021) and since the start of 2020 as one of the SBC’s stable of free to follow tipsters. The focus lies on the Asian Handicap markets and the Over/Under goal lines, where Serpa Bets has achieved very solid long-term ROI figures.

So solid in fact the long term figures show a Return on Investment of 5.03% over 1996 bets. That‘s profits spanning 8 years which clearly indicates a long term edge.

It is fair to say that Serpa Bets has evolved over the years. Although today the service concentrates solely on the two main Spanish leagues, it initially mixed this with bets on international games, Champions’ League and Europa League matches too.

Gradually however, Serpa Bets became more and more Spanish-centric. In 2016 the two current leagues plus the Segunda B (third tier Spanish division) became the sole focus. The latter has been subsequently dropped due to an increasing lack of liquidity in the market which meant that it was difficult for followers to get anything like a meaningful bet on without crushing the odds.

Nowadays the service simply focuses on bets in the top 2 Spanish Leagues and a mix of Asian Handicap, 1X2 and Over/Under bets.

Detailed Review Analysis

In the SBC Serpa Bets Tipster Review we have extensively analysed the service and how it has made profits spanning 8 football seasons.

There are 3 main areas of analysis that I wanted to highlight to you in this email. There is of course a lot more analysis to be read in the Tipster Review.

Firstly, amongst the analysis we discovered some edges of note including how profits were broken down by bet type.

We see here that both Asian Handicap and 1X2 bets are the most profitable with over/under bets being the least profitable (but still in profit).

There’s also significance in the performance by bookmaker table which clearly demonstrates Sergio’s edge at ‘sharp’ bookmakers Pinnacle and SBOBET.

This table shows every bet at every bookmaker since 2013. In recent years Sergio has cut all but Pinnacle/SBObet from his selections and since 2020 he has just advised bets at Pinnacle.

Odds That Are Available

Then perhaps most importantly for non-Pinnacle bettors, the below two tables show the odds tracking analysis we performed which monitored the odds movements on bets advised.

The tracking was done over 116 random bets and looks at advised prices, the odds when the bet was received, 60 minutes later, and the closing line odds, i.e. those at kick off time.

It also incorporates 2 sets of bookmakers, the likes of Pinnacle and SBO Bet and then a more “UK-friendly” set of bookies (Bet365, BetVictor and the Exchanges)

What this shows is that while you can get better odds at Pinnacle, the ROI differences are minimal, suggesting that even if unable to bet with Pinnacle, you can benefit from Serpa Bets without taking too much of a hit to your ROI, especially if able to get on within an hour of bet release.

Crucially it indicates a clear edge over closing prices too.

The odds movement analysis was a small subset of the service’s bets but if we assume the pattern remains for the overall picture then we can also assume we will be profitable taking these bets at UK-friendly bookmakers.

So if betting at Bet365, BetVictor and the Exchanges you are still beating the closing line (great) and ROI differences are only minimal when comparing the odds movements against betting at the sharps.

As an example then, you could take these bets at Betfair Exchange, still be profitable and not face restrictions and staking limits that you would get from the usual UK bookie.

Which makes Serpa Bets a tipster that you should certainly consider adding to your betting portfolio!

Our Lucky 15 Winning Betting Strategy

If you’re looking for a solution to keep your value bets ‘under the radar’ with bookmakers then the remarkable Lucky 15 strategy we outline in the very latest SBC Magazine Issue #122 might be the perfect solution for you!

Not only can it help you win money betting BUT best of all, does so in a way whereby bookies think you have got lucky and so can easily extend the life of your betting accounts.

Sounds too good to be true?

Well I thought you might think that, which is why in todays email I have some real betting slips with big payouts to prove otherwise, plus details of how it works and the numbers behind it all.

Its safe to say this has been a real gamechanger for members of the SBC team and could easily be for you too.

So if you only ever read one Smart Betting Club review – you might want to make it this one!

This review and strategy is available to read now with a Smart Betting Club membership

Lucky 15 Winners

The strategy itself is based upon Bookie Bashing’s exceptional Horse Racing tracker tool (as featured in SBC 122), which does all the work in finding value horse racing bets for you to back.

When you use this tool with a simple Lucky 15 strategy (as we outline in our review) then you have a seriously powerful betting strategy to add to your portfolio.

In this special review we outline some of the attractive features and benefits of it including…

  • How Lucky 15 bets are looked at more favourably by bookmakers even when you win.
  • How Lucky 15s reduce variance when compared to other accumulators meaning losing runs are less severe. The more risk averse of you will find this much easier to handle!
  • The neat trick that occurs when you compound multiple value bets together.
  • The 10 rules to consider to get the most from the strategy meaning you will give yourself the best chance to profit.

The Lucky 15 Strategy in Action

To put this all into action, in the review we outline the performance obtained using this Lucky 15 strategy during the last few months with real betting accounts and real stakes.

During a 10 week period, we placed 405 Lucky 15 bets and achieved a profit in 99 of these (24%).

Staking a total of £22,740 across these 405 Lucky 15 bets, it returned a clear profit of £6198.33, an impressive ROI of 27.26%!!

Check out some of the winning tickets generated by it below:

What People Say…

To further back up the performance of this strategy, here are a couple of quotes from two people using it:

“The Racing Tracker offered by Bookie Bashing is one of the best tools that I’ve used in my betting career so far. It is very easy to use and the value it provides is quantifiable, the longer and longer I used it I began coming up with different tailored approaches to what type of horses I select as part of my Lucky 15’s which has increased my ROI Leveraging the Lucky 15 strategy has provided me with an ROI of 20% so far over a sample size of 500+ Lucky 15’s but it also gives you lots of entertainment value and action where you have some action on almost every single race of the day”

S . Long-term SBC member

 

“I was directed towards using the racing tracker a few months back by Pete, the editor of SBC who is a friend of mine. I had time on my hands and he told me it could be a fantastic way of making some extra cash betting on horse racing. Safe to say he was right and after he explained how to best use it by placing Lucky 15’s, I got to work. I have made over £3500 profit since then and using the tracker forms part of my normal morning betting routine these days. I can’t wait to use it during the Cheltenham Festival especially!

New Review: How Trademate Sports can help you beat both ‘soft’ and ‘sharp’ bookmakers

In a week in which the Trademate Sports service posed the question are we the best football tipster service in the world?’ SBC has today published our extensive review of their unique value betting service.

You can access this review immediately with a Smart Betting Club membership.

Over the course of 6 months live tracking we placed more than 1000 trades using the ‘Trademate Pro’ software, which identifies value bets across a range of bookmakers, brokers and exchanges on multiple sports to get a real sense of how it works.

Here is what we found:

  • A ‘live’ edge of 1.52% ROI was made over 1029 trades with ‘sharp bookmakers’ such as Betfair, Matchbook and SBObet
  • The historical results with sharp bookies indicated a similar 1% to 2% ROI over more than 15,000 trades since 2019.
  • There is also a considerably higher ROI of around 3 to 5% available if betting with ‘soft bookmakers’ – the likes of William Hill, Bet Victor and Bet365

Now if those ROI figures don’t sound like much – think again as this is a very good figure for the markets that Trademate Sports bet within.

Yet these are just the headline figures and there is a lot more to Trademate to consider – all of which can be explored in our very detailed review including…

  • How it can provide a pathway from beginner to professional bettor for anyone with the time available to use.
  • How the software works and its edge over ‘closing line odds’
  • The tweaks you can apply to really enhance its profits and just who we would recommend the service for.

But perhaps best of all if interested in their service is the news that as an SBC member you can save up to €50 a month on a Trademate Sport subscription. All part of the many tipster discounts you can enjoy with the SBC service.

The recommended tipster with 26 losers in a row – understanding sequences & the maths that underpin value betting

Be honest with yourself. How likely are you to stick with a tipster, no matter how good their reputation, if they put up 26 losing bets in a row?

Chances are that most people, especially if paying for tips would throw in the towel long before they placed the 27th bet.

Yet, that is exactly the situation that unfolded with the SBC Hall of Fame service, the Daily Bargain in October when the first 26 bets of the month all lost.

(A Hall of Fame service is simply one of those we fully advocate to SBC members after several years of monitoring, thousands of results and deep analysis of the tipster in question)

As Steve who oversees the Daily Bargain puts up 1 bet a day, that was 26 days of consecutive losers, which will no doubt have seen some posing questions such as why have we at SBC recommended this service in the first place?

It must be some kind of mistake or perhaps even a scam as surely no subscription charging tipster could ever put up 26 losers in a row, could they?

Well, yes they can and in today’s article I am going to explain why as part of a very important discussion on mathematical sequences I would encourage you all to read.

Why Understanding Sequences Is Vital When Betting

Many losing bettors are fooled by their lack of understanding of sequences in relation to the odds and strike-rate of the tipster they follow.

A run of 26 losers in a row, whilst sounding unlikely, is in fact entirely reasonable to expect given the strike-rate of the Daily Bargain.

The historical strike-rate for this service over 2500 bets since 2012 has sat at 14.89%. Just under 1 in 7 bets win.

When we run this past the wonderful ‘Don’t Go Broke’ article I regularly reference from the Daily Bargain website itself, a tipster with a 15% strike-rate is rated to have as follows:

  • A 75% chance of 25 losers in sequence
  • A 50% chance of 30 losers in sequence
  • A 25% chance of 36 losers in sequence

So as unlikely as it sounds a run of 26 losers in sequence is reasonably likely to happen over a large enough sample size.

The Turnaround…

The above is important as it gets to the heart of a flawed viewpoint that many new punters wrongly believe – that if you pay for tips, you should win more often.

The reality is that you will continue to win just as often as the strike-rate of the tipster dictates. If the tipster wins 15% of the time, you will still win 15% of the time long-term.

Over the course of a short-term period, you will always see fluctuations in that – just as we saw in the first 26 bets of October for the Daily Bargain when it hit a 0% strike-rate.

Yet, what I haven’t yet discussed in this article is what happened between the 29th October and the 2nd November as you might have guessed by now…things changed!

Each of the 5 bets advised during this period by the Daily Bargain all won to make back the losses incurred in the first 26 bets of October and add plenty of profit on top.

To simple 1 point stakes, a deficit of -26 points had risen to a profit of +17.67 points.

A swing of 43.67 points in your favour.

What a turnaround and reward for those following during the fallow days of October for their patience. The losing run had been easily absorbed.

Taking as a whole, over the course of the 31 bets between the 1st October and 2nd November, this saw 31 bets advised, with 5 bets winning.

Which equates to…you guessed it a 16.12% strike-rate of success.

Just a smidgen above what the service has achieved long-term since 2012.

It is also worth pointing out here that during those 26 bets in October without a winner, 6 of them placed, finishing 2nd or 3rd at odds of 20/1, 10/1, 7/1, 7/1, 13/2, 11/2. So, it is not as if they all ran badly – sometimes it’s just a series of near misses that go against you, during a bad run. You must remain patient for the rewards to come your way.

I should also make clear that in the 10 days since the 2nd November and this article being written, the Daily Bargain has also enjoyed three more big winners at 8/1, 12/1 and 9/2 so the rewards for being patient in October are now being reaped big time.

The Same Maths Apply Whether Paying For Tips or Not

The truth is that even if paying for a quality tipster service like the Daily Bargain, there is no getting away from the maths that underpin betting.

So don’t be fooled into the notion that if paying for tips, they will lose less.

They will lose the same amount as their long-term strike-rate dictates. In the Daily Bargain’s case – 15% of the time, they will win. 85% of the time they will lose.

What will change is the profits you make based on the odds you place the bets at.

Because as long as taking a value price, such as the Daily Bargain advocates, then over the course of time, you will end up in profit.

Yet these profits never come in a straight line. You might get 26 losers in a row; you might get 5 winners in a row.

The sequences will change. At times they will frustrate you and at others they will delight you. You simply have to be patient and not fall into the trap that gets so many punters who don’t understand the simple mathematics behind sequences.

The trick is not to micro-manage and live out your results day-to-day or week-to-week.

If you do so, you might fall into the trap of quitting too soon. Like any punters that stopped following the Daily Bargain after the 26th loser in October…

The Importance Of A Betting Bank

To help you cope with sequences, you also need a betting bank to cover yourself when bad runs hit.

This is why we recommend a 100 points bank for the Daily Bargain, because even if you joined on the 1st October, you would have only lost 26% of your bank at that point.

Come the 2nd November, you would have been up 17.67 points or 17.67% of your bank.

The betting bank is there to help keep your staking in check when a bad run hits, because all bettors, no matter how experienced do feel the pain of losing to some degree.

Over time and once you have ridden this storm a few times, it gets easier to handle, but if new to betting in this way and if you struggle to keep focus when in a losing spree, a betting bank is absolutely crucial.

Don’t forget either that each individual bet you place is almost always totally disconnected from the last bet you placed (assuming placed on different games/races)

So just because your last bet won or lost, it makes it no likelier that your next bet will do the same.

The horse running in the 3.10 at Kempton you have just backed has no idea that the horse you backed yesterday in the 2.20 at Wolverhampton lost.

It’s a completely different race with different horses, jockeys and conditions entirely. So try not to think about runs of ‘good form’ or ‘bad form’ and instead focus on the bigger picture.

That alongside a greater understanding of the betting strike-rate can make a world of difference to your betting.

And as ever you also need patience. Patience in abundance at times, but for those of you able to apply this to your betting – the rewards are there with the right tipsters.

SBC’s extensive review & podcast on the new Betmarkets game-changer tipster platform

Friday saw the release of one of the most hotly-anticipated reviews SBC have ever released – our exploration of the new Betmarkets.io platform making a huge splash in the tipster world.

The interest is easy to understand as Betmarkets allows you the opportunity to automate the following of expert tipsters and have all their advised bets placed on your behalf.

Styled as the e-toro of the betting world, the Betmarkets platform removes the need for you to do anything but choose the tipsters you wish to follow and how much to have risked on each bet they put forward.

Already they have more than 30 quality tipsters onboard and to gauge the service, the SBC team have been actively using Betmarkets since May, during which time more than 2200 trades have been placed on our behalf and a profit has been made.

In this major review, we explore all aspects of the Betmarkets platform from its setup and licensing through to the tipsters they have onboard and exactly how profits are made and distributed. Plus of course the fees for usage, licensing and safety/security of money deposited.

SBC members can also enjoy a special 2% credit on their first deposit with Betmarkets. So if you deposit €2000, you will get €40 back in credit set against any future fees. This is an exclusive offer available ONLY to Smart Betting Club members and part of the benefits of our service.

Lies, damned lies and statistics in the tipster world

In the crazy world we live in currently, the collection and analysis of data is never far from the headlines.

Whether it be examining the polls for the Presidential Election or the spread of Covid-19 and the need for lockdowns, the ability to interpret complex data and make informed decisions from it is key.

As we have seen from the different approaches to Covid-19 across the world, many ‘experts’, especially the uninformed political variety, continue to interpret data incorrectly and make often well-meaning, yet flawed decisions.

Yet, what you may ask – does that have to do with betting?

The reality is that whatever field you work in, interpreting data and its outputs is vitally important, including SBC’s world of tipster reviews and recommendations.

Certainly nowhere near as important as working out how to counter the spread of Covid-19, yet for those of us interested in betting and the goal of making money, it is important to us.

Yes, we can review a tipster from the basics of data. Pick out what they made over the last 3 months or simply pile in on one that made the most money in 2020, but would that be right?

That is what many simpler tipster review sites do though. Follow a tipster for 3 or even 6 months and say “Yep, this one is good – click this link to join them and we get a 40% share of any memberships you purchase”

The issue with this approach is two-fold.

Firstly the fact these affiliate review sites get paid for who they refer to a tipster (a topic for another day), and secondly, because they are simply recommending those who are hot or enjoying a purple patch over a short-term period.

These is no guarantee that any bettor or tipster enjoying a good 3 or even 6 months, will also be the best option for years to come. They might have simply got lucky.

Let’s be clear on this point because the goal of what we do here at SBC is to outline the tipsters that can make you money betting not just tomorrow, or next month, but for years to come.

Hence why we never go overboard on say just 3 months of results or small sample sizes – or even for that matter use affiliate links in our review, which financially compel us to give positive reviews to something we might not believe in.

Yet, even if we collate years and years of data on a tipster to get a really decent sample size to scrutinise, this still can be improved upon with the use of our ‘Advanced Tipster Analytics’…


Digging Really Deep Into A Tipster

Our quest to get the most detailed, accurate data on a tipster, has informed what we term our ‘Advanced Tipster Analytics’ that now form a standard part of every SBC tipster review.

Much of the work in these Advanced Tipster Analytics has been ported over from other investment worlds and the outputs provided help us make more informed decisions on just which tipsters offer the best chance to make you a profit betting.

To explain briefly how they work – effectively when the SBC team reviews a tipster, alongside reviewing the live, proofed data we have, we also run ‘Monte Carlo simulations’, which replicate the profile of the service over many million data points.

So rather than calculate what might happen when analysing 1000 or 2000 live bets from a tipster, we do so over say 90 million – a much more useful data set.

The results of these simulations can help to answer key questions for any given tipster such as:

  • Is a betting record more likely to be based on luck or skill?
    Getting to the heart of whether you want to risk your money following them…
  • What kind of losing runs or drawdowns might you realistically expect?
    Helping you cope with them when a bad run hits!
  • How do their live results compare to their simulation results?
    Very useful in identifying a tipster that might be lying about their live results
  • Have they benefited from some freak results and outliers that are unlikely to be replicated?
    I.e. Have they got really lucky with a big 100/1 winner or 500/1 each way double?
  • What size betting bank do you REALLY need?
    Because betting professionally is about building a bank!

No Complex Maths Knowledge Required

The good news is that you DO NOT need to understand any complicated mathematics to benefit from exploring these advanced outputs or ‘scores’ we publish as standard in each tipster review.

All you need to do is to simply follow the easy to understand explanations we give and the context to the scores published.

To further help with this, as an SBC member you can also read the Advanced Tipster Analytics Guide we have published that explains things in a simple manner.

Again – no difficult maths knowledge is needed beyond an understanding what each rating means and how a tipster scores in context and if this is good or bad (or in-between)

And naturally, the scores we see from a tipster, then directly contribute to whether or not the SBC team deems them worthy of a Hall of Fame recommendation.

I.e. The tipsters we advocate you should follow based on all the evidence in front of us.

Detailed Tipster Analysis As Standard

All SBC tipster reviews now undergo the Advanced Analytics treatment whereby we run a Monte Carlo simulation to really get to the bottom of just how good they actually are (or not!)

For even more on this topic, you can also access what we call our Tipster Profit Report ‘EXTRA’ which provides you with:

  • Advanced Tipster Analytics Comparison Tables – Explore the performance of those tipsters already reviewed by the SBC team and how they rate against each other.
  • New Tipster Evaluations – View the results for 3 new tipsters that have been put through our Advanced Tipster Analytics and what their outputs tell you

And of course – you can download the special ‘Advanced Tipster Analytics’ guide as an SBC member to guide you further.

Ultimately though, whether you use this extra detail or not and simply just follow the SBC team’s recommendations, you can have peace of mind that no stone has been left unturned in our quest to make the most accurate predictions of which tipsters you should follow.

See you on the inside…
