Why Matchday Profits Appeals

As a Matchday Profits member you receive regular, easy to follow advice on how to take advantage of 4 main different bookmaker offers – accas, free bets, promo prices & antepost bets.

To take the accas as one example – these are usually advised as 4 or 5 team accumulators for an average outlay of £5 to £10 and often with a bookmaker providing ‘acca insurance’ whereby if one leg loses you get your stake back or a free bet of some kind.

Matchday Profits then use a very neat strategy to advise the right type of bets to take advantage of these kind of acca offers. It’s all above board – and is simply based on the expertise of those behind the service, coupled with the generosity of the bookmaker(s) in question.

As proof of their edge, here is what Matchday Profits have made profit wise over the past 4 seasons:

Ideal For New Punters Or If On A Budget

A service like Matchday Profits is also ideally suited to those of you either working to a small budget or new to betting.

For those of you with budget concerns – you can follow the advice with no need for a large size betting bank as they are relatively low risk bets in the first place.

If you have a starting budget of £400 – you can pay to join for a year for just £95.25 (with the SBC discount) and use the remaining £305.75 to fund your following of the service.

Following all of his bets in the past 2 seasons has made just short of an average £2000 annual profit, so with just £400, you can easily multiply your investment by 4 to 5 times itself in a year, judged on historical standards.

Even if you simply follow in half of the bets, based on the 2018/19 stats, this would have made you a £992.25 profit for just this £95.25 subscription. More than 10 times your subscription fee.

One other angle to consider for those of you unsure if you can get on all the bets advised – if you simply followed the free bets alone – they have returned over £2500 profit for little over £2300 staked over the past 2 seasons.

New review alert: The Betfair SP Tipster up 17.78% ROI since 2017 – don’t miss out!

The first review from our forthcoming series on profitable betting exchange tipsters has just been published – and its fair to say this is one article you won’t want to miss out on!

Inside this latest review, we explore in great detail the success enjoyed by this tipster to both bookmaker advised prices and at Betfair SP (after commission) over nearly 850 bets since 2017.

At Betfair SP alone, this tipster has generated a profit of between 374 and 543 points at 12.27% and 17.78% ROI.

The profit differences above depend on whether you wish to follow as a mix of win & place bets on Betfair (effectively mimicking a traditional each way bet) or just win bets only.

You can make more money betting win only than each way, yet as ever you don’t get a payout if your horse finishes in the place money.

If able to bet with bookmakers – to his fairly quoted odds, he has made a profit of between 768 and 1041 points at 25.16% and 34.11% ROI.

Again these differences are based on whether you prefer to bet each way or to win outright – with the latter much more profitable long-term.

As well as exploring the service and its profitability with both bookmakers and the exchanges, our review also discusses:

  • The service staking plan and how it stacks up;
  • The breakdown in performance by odds & where the service makes the greatest profit;
  • A comparison of win vs each way betting to help you decide what’s best for you;
  • The recommended betting bank sizes for each method & how to make the largest growth figures;
  • How best to follow on the exchanges and a possible ‘Hybrid’ method to make the greatest return.

How to check if a tipsters quoted odds are fair and realistic

One of the most important questions facing those of you using racing tipsters these days is that of odds availability.

Specifically…Can you as a punter realistically obtain the odds that a tipster quotes?

For some of the most popular free tipsters like Hugh Taylor or Andy Holding it’s always been an issue as the weight of money behind their tips forces the odds in very quickly. The fact they both supply their tips for free means there are lots of punters trying to lump on their bets.

Odds movement is also now a growing issue for other less well-known tipsters too – especially horse racing experts that put up bets into early markets which are very price sensitive.

Whilst it might make sense to follow a tipster snapping up the earliest value – in reality, it can cause you all kinds of problems. From the fact you will be making less profit (and possibly losing so much value you might be in deficit by doing so) to being increasingly vulnerable to betting restrictions being applied to your bookmaker accounts.

In short, its a major issue and one you need to be acutely aware of if following a tipster.

The Evolution of Racing Bookmaking

To help explain the current issue with ‘early odds’, it’s worth a quick walk down memory lane to understand how betting on racing historically worked.

Back in the good old days, most major bookmakers employed large teams of racing traders who would price up each race meeting and manage a traditional racing book.

As money flowed in a market, the odds for each horse would change as each firm managed their liability and tried to work an overall profitable position.

Occasionally, some bookmakers would find themselves getting filled in and taking a hit if getting it wrong, yet their in-built over-round always ensured that long-term, they would usually make a profit with a modicum of skill.

With the introduction of betting exchanges, all of this changed.

Nowadays, large-scale racing trading teams are a thing of the past, with almost all bookmakers basing their odds on what happens on Betfair.

If money comes in for a horse on Betfair – the bookie slashes its prices to reflect that. The opposite rings true on horses that drift in price although generally bookies are much slower to put their odds up than down.

Ultimately, the art of building a racing book has been lost by all major firms. They simply track Betfair.

Which in turn has impacted how we as punters get on and how the markets react to shrewd money.

Why Odds Are Odd When Betting Early

This sea change in the world of racing bookmaking has had a major knock-on effect for those punters keen to bet early such as the night before or the early morning of racing.

For most horse races these days, you can expect to see the first odds start to appear around 4 to 5pm the day before racing is due to take place from a handful of bookies.

As the evening wears on, a few more firms will start to quote odds until there are a smattering of bookmakers pricing up each horse in a race.

This continues into the morning of racing and it is not until 10 to 1030am when the markets really start to form, with the vast majority of money actually only hitting the market around 10 minutes before a race actually starts.

The problem for us punters is that when taking ‘early’ prices prior to the market forming – these prices are based on a very small amount of Betfair trading – usually not much money at all.

A horse that is 10/1 at 9am, which suddenly sees a rush of support can send the bookies running for cover and be as short as 5/1 within 20 to 30 minutes.

This is because without a decent Betfair market to guide them at this time and with very little ‘racing expertise’, the bookies know they are vulnerable to shrewd punters who try and snap up the value odds on any overpriced horses at this point.

Therefore, even moderate sums of money coming in for a horse (especially at big odds) will see its price collapse in no time and the accounts of those placing such bets eyed with suspicion.

Want to red flag your account to a bookmaker as one for restriction? Simply place lots of bets on popular horses that quickly shorten in price and that usually does the trick.

Sometimes it matters not one jot if your bets go onto win. The simple act of regularly betting horses that shorten in price is enough to see many bookmakers limit your account.

20/1 Advised into 8/1 SP…

It is this issue of slashing odds that causes such a problem for tipsters who post up bets into these early betting markets.

The general logic is that the earlier a tipster puts up a tip, the greater chance its odds will move downwards*

*Although it’s important to make the distinction here that betting in the major race meetings such as Cheltenham or on the big Saturday/Sunday featured races won’t see the same level of movement.

For those tipsters with a large subscriber base, there is zero chance the quoted odds will hold up.

It’s all too common to see a price of 20/1 quoted by a tipster, yet within minutes it’s a best 16/1 or 14/1. Come the morning of the race its 10/1 and it starts at 8/1 SP.

Considering betting profitably is all about value, even a change from 20/1 to 16/1 can and does make a major difference to your bottom line.

Taking 8/1 or 10/1 on a 20/1 shot isn’t worth thinking about neither – and by doing so you are actually more likely to turn a loss than a profit.

The Tipster With Rapid Odds Movement Issues

To give you an example of the type of movement I regularly see on this front, I wanted to share with you stats from some ongoing odds monitoring we are currently undertaking on a popular racing tipster.

I won’t name the tipster in question as this odds monitoring is still ongoing, but I have seen several very positive reviews of his service as published by several other ‘review’ sites already – yet none of them mention his odds movement, which I fear is a major oversight.

This racing tipster advises his tips either the night before racing (8-9pm) or early in the morning of racing (8.30-9am) and to gauge how his prices stand up, we are tracking and comparing the best odds across 3 different metrics as follows:

  • The odds he advises
  • The odds after 15 minutes have elapsed from the time the tip was sent
  • The odds at 10am

Below you can see what the average odds look like in decimal format at each of these 3 metrics so far:

  • The odds he advises: 13.96
  • The odds after 15 minutes have elapsed from the time the tip was sent: 11.96
  • The odds at 10am: 10.85

Exploring these stats further, you can quite clearly see a major drop in the average odds available from those advised and those available after 15 minutes. From 13.96 to 11.96 in 15 minutes is a significant move.

By 10am, these odds have dropped even further down to 10.85 and it has quickly become apparent that they are being extremely well supported.

In terms of profit differences, you would be -9.35% ROI worse off if taking the best price after 15 minutes and -21.78% ROI worse off at 10am.

There is no suggestion that the odds quoted by this tipster are not accurate at the time they send the tips (our tracking also gauges this) but clearly they are going to prove to be very difficult to obtain.

Even if you did get on within the first few minutes of the bets being advised – most bookies would take one look at your betting history and quickly restrict or close your account.

If there is one thing that will get a bookies attention it is constantly backing a horse that drops significantly in price after you get on.

 

Why Odds Tracking Is A Must In ANY Review

The above outlines very neatly exactly why every genuine tipster review MUST feature an element of odds-tracking.

We perform this as standard for every major tipster we review and whilst it is hard-work and time-consuming, it is hugely valuable.

By doing so we can quickly identify those tipsters putting up genuine odds and inform you as to how achievable the odds are (or not).

The tipster I reference above will be reviewed in a forthcoming SBC Magazine once we complete our detailed odds tracking, and as things stand it does seem odds availability is a major issue – something that will prevent us recommending them to our members.

And whilst other reviews published on this tipping service might skirt this issue – we will not as it’s a fundamental problem that needs to be addressed if they wish to be taken seriously as a service.

The good news is that there are several Hall of Fame rated tipsters, whom we rate and recommend here at SBC that do play fair by the odds they quote for subscribers.

If you are keen to find out more on who they are and how they can help you, then you can find more details within our Hall of Fame listings and reviews, which you can gain access to with a Smart Betting Club membership.

Whatever you do though, be very wary of any tipster quoting results based on tips sent the day before racing. Very often you simply can’t match their results in practice!

P.s. If ever in doubt as to whether a tipster puts up genuine odds – be sure to ask them exactly when they put up their tips and how they settle their results. If they are putting them up the evening before racing and making no adjustments for odds movement, I would advise you to give them a miss!

How this Tipster uses Artificial Intelligence to bag winners

Monday saw the start of Wimbledon 2019 and if you are looking for a top tennis betting tipster to follow – then you simply must read our review of the Tennis Tipster with a phenomenal record as featured in the latest SBC magazine.

Although when I say ‘Tennis Tipster‘ I really should say ‘Tennis Algorithm‘ as this service uses a complex model based on Artificial Intelligence to generate value betting tennis tips on a daily basis.

Developed by Miguel – who used his background in both civil engineering and professional poker to produce the Algorithm, it crunches the numbers for each tennis match and works out the true betting odds for each player. If the odds available on any given player are larger than the Algorithm’s calculations – it becomes a bet.

…And you as a subscriber to this Tennis Service receive a notification of the bet, which in turn you can place with either a bookmaker or exchange.

1941.42 Points Profit Since 2016

Having observed this service for a lengthy period of time, we published our findings in the extremely detailed review now available in SBC 111.

This review highlights the profitability of the service including the key record of performance since 2016, whereby over 23142 bets, the service at ‘Average Odds’ has made a profit of 1941.42 points @ 8.39% Return on Investment (ROI)

You can view the full breakdown of performance below:

Over 19 X Bank Growth = Outstanding Profits

Even more impressive is the fact this profit has been generated at simple 1 point level stakes on each bet placed.

To such a simple staking plan, our recommendation is for a 100 point betting bank, which in turn has generated some huge Return on Capital (ROC) figures as illustrated by the table below.

The reason why such a high ROC figure is impressive as this is a direct way of calculating how much a betting bank will have grown – which in this case is 1941.4%.

So if you started with a fund of £500 in 2016 when the Tennis Tipster started, this £500 will have grown 19.41 times bigger,

In this case, that £500 would now be worth £9,705!!

Of course, this would rely on you placing every single bet during that period at the average odds, so in reality your figures will differ.

You will have missed some bets, got better or worse odds at times and possibly adjusted just how much you stake in £ on each bet during this period.

Yet the bottom-line is that this is a seriously impressive ‘Tipping’ service and one all aspiring punters should check out – whether you like Tennis or not.

The racing tipster with 450 points profit from 1593 tips – the inside track

In the latest SBC magazine, Issue 110, you can explore a detailed review of a very profitable racing tipster at both fair bookmaker prices and at Betfair SP.

It’s a review that has attracted a lot of interest and questions, so I though I would tackle a few of the key points behind the review to help detail more on this tipster’s successful record.

It delves into topics like the long-term profitable record, the bookies he uses, the exact profit figures at Betfair SP and a lot more besides.

Please also be aware that as a Smart Betting Club member you can enjoy a 50% discount on the cost of membership to this tipster – part of the exclusive savings deals we negotiate on your behalf.

Long-Term Results That Show Skill, Not Just Luck

Over a small number of bets, anyone can get lucky and turn a profit, yet it takes real skill to make a profit over a long period of time and a large number of bets.

So the first thing we do with any review is to analyse the long-term stats for any tipster and as you can see in the table below, this tipster has made a 450.99 point profit @ 15.38% ROI from 1593 tips.

A big enough set of data to satisfy us that his edge is based on skill, not luck.

This tipster has also made a profit in each year so far and showcased good consistency with that 15.38% ROI figure, which effectively tells you that for every £100 you stake, you will win £15.38 on average.

Quoted Odds That Don’t Get Smashed In!

One of the biggest concerns for racing tipsters these days surround how the quoted odds they advise on any tip stand up over time.

Too many tipsters quote prices that don’t remain available for long, which as a subscriber will only serve to frustrate as you can’t match their claimed profits.

To gauge this, we ran our standard ‘odds tracking’ for this service, whereby we monitored the best prices available from a panel of bookmakers over various time periods.

Below you can see the ROI difference if you had placed your bets at differing time points, which aside from 10.30am, show an actual improvement on the quoted odds.

For example – if you had placed your bets at 8.30am, the average odds on a tip are 10.53/1, compared to just 10.25/1 when the bet was advised by the tipster themselves.

So, if placing your bets at 8.30am, you would have boosted this tipsters claimed ROI figure by 1.69% – suggesting the odds he quotes are very fair and realistic!

Profits at Betfair SP AFTER 5% Commission

In the odds tracking table above, you can also view a major boost to the average odds if betting at Betfair SP with a 6.81% ROI improvement during our tracking period.

To examine this in more detail, we also explored the profitability if backing ALL this service’s tips at Betfair SP minus 5% commission.

Our findings are showcased in the table below, which indicate a small ROI difference of -1.20% if taking Betfair SP, versus taking the advised prices.

Instead of making 450.99 points profit with the advised bookmakers, you would be sitting on a profit of 415.82 points at 14.18% ROI if using Betfair SP.

There is a clear suggestion of profitability to be had betting at Betfair SP – especially if you have a commission lower than 5%, where you should match, if not beat these profit figures long-term.

The 5% commission charge we deduct is Betfair’s baseline offer and the more you bet, the lower that commission rate becomes. The likelihood therefore is that you would pay a much smaller commission rate with Betfair if following this tipster for any length of time.

A Range Of Different Bookmakers Used

If you are happy to use bookmakers to place these bets, then it is also important to know which firms are used and how frequently.

This is important because if certain bookmakers have closed or restricted your accounts, you won’t be able to bet with them if they are top priced on an advised tip. Equally if a tipster is quoting prices with some lesser-known bookmakers, then you might not have access to these odds.

The table below illustrates how frequently each bookmaker was offering the best price through our odds tracking exercise with Betfair Sportsbook the most used 38.18% of the time. Other firms used regularly included Paddy Power (37.09%), Bet Victor (24.55%), Bet365 (23.82%) and Coral/Ladbrokes.

In-play football tips & Betfair SP profits – 2 new ways to win betting

Last week saw the release of the latest SBC Magazine (Issue 110), which features 3 new and very detailed tipster reviews for you to discover.

It includes 2 experts with profitable records on the betting exchanges – the first, a racing tipster with a winning Betfair SP record and the second, a successful football tipsteradvising lay bets in major leagues and competitions.

There is also a detailed review of an in-play football tipster making strong profits taking advantage of bookies mistakes as games unfold.

If interested in learning more on each of these tipsters, I have penned a bit more detail on all 3 below, how they work and the winning edge they can provide you with.

You can pick up your copy of SBC 110 instantly with a Smart Betting Club membership

Review 1: The £2 a month in-play football tipster with a 10% ROI

This first review is one 2 years in the making as we have been studiously tracking this unique tipping service since 2017, during which time we have been highly impressed by the profits generated.

Advising bets in-play, over the course of these 2 years and 1315 tips, this tipster has made a 10% Return on Investment and best of all a 333% betting bank growth figure.

Using the free Telegram app (available in mobile/desktop versions) to supply the in-play tips, this service charges just £2 a month or £19.99 per season to pick up all their in-play advice – making this an absolute bargain!

In our exclusive review, you can read a full breakdown of results over time and by league/competition, plus odds tracking and our experience of following in-play. Already several SBC members have started to follow this expert and it’s easy to see why.

Review 2: The Betfair SP Profitable Racing Tipster

With betting restrictions an active concern for many horse racing punters – attention for many has turned to those tipsters able to make a profit at Betfair SP, where you can bet without fear of account closure.

Hence why interest has been so strong in our 2nd review in SBC 110, which tackles the racing tipster with a strong profit at Betfair SP since 2014. Our calculations indicate a 14.18% ROI at Betfair SP over the past 6 years at 5% commission rates. Assuming you will pay a lower Betfair commission rate – this ROI profit figure could easily be beaten and improved upon.

This tipster also makes a fine profit if betting with traditional bookmakers and perhaps most pleasingly – no major odds movement issues to worry about. Unlike some tipsters where the odds drop swiftly after a tip has been advised, our tracking found that you could actually beat the quoted odds simply by shopping around.

As a Smart Betting Club member you can also enjoy a 50% discount on the cost of membership to this tipster – part of the exclusive savings deals we negotiate on your behalf.

Review 3: The Free Football Betting Laying Tipster

Our 3rd and final detailed review in SBC 110 tackles another winning tipster with a profitable record advising lay bets you can follow on the betting exchanges.

It’s a service run by an ex-betting exchange employee who developed his tipping strategy based on the knowledge he accumulated working in the industry for several years.

Currently available FREE of charge to Smart Betting Club members – it has made a 50 point profit at 3.3% ROI from 450 lays advised since January 2018.

And if that ROI figure sounds low – well it isn’t as it needs to be judged in the context of how a laying service works AND the competitive nature of the markets he tips in. Most of them are major leagues and competitions across Europe like the Champions League, Premier League and Serie A, so getting an edge in these areas is quite the achievement.

Our review explores this currently free service, its profitable record, betting bank advise and how best to follow.

How to get started betting with tipsters – simple 5 step guide

If you have an interest in the idea of using tipsters to make a profit from your betting, then in today’s blog post, I have penned an easy guide to help you get started doing exactly that.

Titled ‘My 5 Step Guide To Betting With Tipsters‘ – it gives you the lowdown on all you need to get going and some of the key concepts to understand along the way in your profitable betting journey.

Tackling everything from the cost of tipsters, betting banks, the kind of profits you can expect and yes – dealing with losing runs, it should hopefully give you a good idea on the reality of betting in this way.

So if you are intrigued by this concept – I hope you enjoy these 5 simple steps…

Step 1: Sign-Up To A Top Performing Tipster

The first thing to do is to find the right tipster or tipsters for you to follow.

This needn’t be an expensive service as many of the top performing tipsters you find within our Tipster Hall of Fame listings keep things relatively affordable – charging an average of around £30 per month for access to their expertise.

A cost that will ultimately be dwarfed by the profits usually made by each tipster over an average period.

Putting cost to one side, what often matters more is choosing the right tipster to suit your circumstances and things like:

  • What time of day you can bet;
  • What you can bet on – often determined by the bookmakers or exchanges you have access to
  • How many bets per day you wish to place;
  • How patient or disciplined you are prepared to be at times;

You can get answers to all these questions and more in our tipster reviews, which are there to help you find the right tipster for your specific preferences. After all, everyone is different and there is lots of choice given the number of excellent tipsters out there currently.

Step 2: Set Up Your Betting Bank

Once you have chosen your first tipster – the next step is to set up your points betting bank to follow them with.

This points betting bank is a figure relative to the tipsters staking plan, which ensures you will not go bust and keeps your own staking disciplined and consistent through both good and bad runs the same.

It’s probably best explained with a real life example from our Tipster Hall of Fame – lets call them Racing Tipster X.

For Racing Tipster X, we advise a points betting bank of 100, based on their staking plan which advises you back each of their tips with between 1 and 3 points. The amount in points depends on the tipsters confidence in each bet – 1 point is their smallest bet, and 3 points is a max bet.

If you were to follow Racing Tipster X, you would simply take the money you have set aside to follow them with and divide it by this figure of 100.This is then your stake per ‘point’ advised.

So, if you have £1000 set aside, your stake per point is then £10 (1000/100)

Should Racing Tipster X advise a 2 point win bet, you would then risk £20. 3 points would be £30 and so on.

If you only have £500 set aside for following Racing Tipster X, your stake per point would be £5 (500/100)

Over the past 12 months, Racing Tipster X has actually made a profit of 319.8 points profit so at £10 a point stakes, you would be up £3198.00 and at £5 stakes, you would be up £1,559.00.

Step 3: Educate Yourself on Losing Runs & Realistic Expectations

If all the above sounds easy – well that’s because it really is. You simply find the right tipsters, get going with the advised points betting bank and away you go.

Yet, betting in reality is never that simple and it is vitally important you spend a bit of time learning about the challenges of betting – especially how to handle bad runs and keeping your expectations in check.

With this in mind, I highly recommend all SBC members read the 100 page ‘Pro Gambler Blueprint’ and 54-page Betting Psychology Guide: ‘How to get the Betting X-Factor’ we provide access to via our Pro Betting Fundamentals section.

Both these guides give you both the practical and theoretical tools to cope with the ups and downs of betting and are a great resource to utilise and lean on during your betting journey.

Because whatever some ‘dubious’ tipsters may tell you – everyone loses at times and understanding how to put bad runs into context and keep your staking on the straight and narrow during them is vital.

Ultimately, each of the Hall of Fame tipsters we recommend do have winning long-term records dating back several years, yet all of them at times do endure bad runs.

No-one can ever hit a 100% strike-rate for success and by educating yourself with these easy to read guides, you will give yourself all the tools you need to cope.

 

Step 4: Keep A Record of Performance

It might sound obvious, but another vital part of betting for profit is keeping an actual record of your performance.

This can be anything from a detailed bet-by-bet rundown of each tip you place or even a daily/weekly summary of performance.

However detailed the record you keep – the key point is that you know what you are making and how the tipsters you follow are faring for you.

You can use free sites like Betting Metrics or bettin.gs who not only do this for you, but also provide analytical tools to help you scrutinise your performance in depth. As an SBC member you can also enjoy discounts on both the Betting Metrics & Bettin.gs ‘Pro’ options

During any bad runs of form, I also highly recommend falling back on your performance record to help give some context and insight into your long-term form.

Step 5: Don’t Run Before You Can Walk

As tempting and exciting the world of betting for profit using tipsters can be and is at times, there is no rush to jump in all guns blazing and start risking huge sums of money right away.

I always advocate a gradual walk-before-you-run policy that sees you start with a handful of tipsters at most – possibly even using a few of the top free tipsters we supply to members.

This type of sensible approach enables you to get to grips with the reality of following each tipster and how they work, without spending large sums on subscriptions.

Keeping staking relatively small to start off with is also recommended as it’s far better to learn at £5 or £10 stakes than £50 or £100 stakes.

If rushing in at big sums, you are placing yourself under unnecessary pressure and this also might mean you have unrealistic expectations on turning a quick profit.

Starting at smaller stakes doesn’t mean you won’t make a profit either because as we saw with Racing Tipster X in Step 1, even at £10 stakes, you would be up £3198.00 over the past 12 months to his staking plan.

There are several other affordable tipsters with similar strong records both within our Tipster Hall of Fame and amongst the free tipsters we provide access to who offer similar ‘starter’ options.

Ensuring you can build your betting and tipster portfolio up gradually with the right foundations for long-term success.

Can this Betting Exchange Football Tipster Help You avoid restrictions?

Last Friday was a big day here at SBC Towers as it saw the release of our very latest magazine (Issue 109), which featured in-depth reviews on 3 new and most importantly, profitable tipsters.

Chief amongst them was our exploration of the major football tipster with 290% betting bank growth since October 2016 and a very easy to follow methodology.

Yet one of the most appealing aspects of this tipster is not just their profitability, but the fact you can follow the tips in on the exchanges – Betfair, Smarkets, Betdaq & Matchbook.

Highlighting this a tipster those of you restricted by the bookmakers might very well wish to consider following.

Allow me to unpack a little bit more background on this tipster and how we know it to be exchange-friendly…

Consistent Profits Over 3 Seasons

First of all, our interest in this tipster is based on his record since he began advising tips back in October 2016, where he has made a 145.7 point profit at 8.1% ROI from 1799 bets.

His strategy during this time has remained very consistent with a strike-rate of 43% and average odds of 2.46 (just a tad under 6/4 in old money). You can see the breakdown of performance in the table below:

You can also view the accumulation of profit over this period of time via the graph below, which charts the points profit over the years. There are no major ups and downs, which indicates a consistent service and the usage of a steady tipping strategy.

All Tips In Major Football Markets

In terms of the markets this tipster focuses on, the vast majority are straight Home or Away bets with 1611 so far at average odds of 2.47, running at a ROI of 7.7%.

He also bulks these tips out with occasional Asian Handicap tips, which are running at an extraordinarily high ROI of 11.6%. A figure we imagine would be unlikely to maintain over a larger data set.

Considering the vast majority of tips are also across mostly ‘major’ football leagues with lots of liquidity (money traded) then this is another major tick in the box from an exchange point of view. This is because there is plenty of money to be matched on the exchanges in these markets.

You can see the breakdown of performance by bet type below:

Quoted Odds That Remain Realistic

When evaluating a tipster, its absolutely critical to track how the quoted odds they put up stand-up in their chosen market. If, for example the quoted odds are slashed downwards within minutes, then it will raise questions as to whether you can match the performance levels claimed.

As is standard practice with all Smart Betting Club reviews, we ran some detailed odds movement tracking to gauge just this – noting how the quoted odds compared from those advised to those available immediately upon receipt of the bet. We also tracked the best odds after 15 minutes, 60 minutes and the closing odds (when the football match started).

First of all, we tracked these odds against those available with a panel of bookmakers only: Bet365, BlackType, Coral, Ladbrokes, Paddy Power, Pinnacle, SBO Bet and William Hill.

Below you can see the results of this study (It covers a period of 2 months) and how the advised odds compared to what you might have obtained at different time periods.

Of most importance is the ROI Difference (ROI Diff) column, which shows how your performance would have stacked up in comparison.

During this study, we managed to almost match the advised prices if placing the bets immediately.(Received) and would have made 0.2% ROI less overall.

If betting within 15 to 60 minutes of each bet being released, this dropped to between a -0.6% and -0.8% adjustment and if taking closing odds (which isn’t recommended) then the difference would be -1.1% ROI. Suggesting that any difference is very marginal indeed if betting with bookmakers.

Better Profits If Betting On The Exchanges

In addition to tracking the odds using the main bookmaker panel outlined above, we also ran a secondary analysis which compared the odds if using these 3 betting exchanges: Betfair, Smarkets and Matchbook.

Our tracking over the same 2 month period suggested that by using these exchanges you could reasonably expect to increase profitability by 0.5 to 1% ROI

This increase in profitability is simply down to the slightly better odds you can often obtain on the exchanges – especially those offering low commission such as Smarkets and Matchbook.

All of which is very encouraging for those of you looking for a sustainable, exchange based solution – and a keen addition to our list of exchange based tipsters that we recommend to Smart Betting Club members.
