2 big wins in the past 10 days for SBC’s tipster blogger!

Here at SBC we don’t just talk about following tipsters, we actually live and breathe it out ourselves each day – placing bets from many of the same tipsters we rate and recommend.

Which is why for the past 7 years, SBC writer and reviewer, Rowan Day has been blogging about his own experiences using tipsters and their ongoing performance via his FREE Online Bet Diary.

He lists not only the tipsters he follows but the profits and losses made each week.


As long-term Bet Diary readers will know, Rowan has been making a fine profit using tipsters for several years but lately he has hit a few big winners and I wanted to highlight a couple of highlights for you to check out.

First of all, on Sunday he hit not just one big golf winner, but two with 100/1 and 66/1 successes in both the PGA and DP world events as he outlines in this post.

That followed on from a huge winning day on the racing last week where he made 150% bank growth with one very successful Lucky 15. I have seen the betslip and can confirm it was a sizeable win indeed!


Posting 3 times a week on his Racing, Sports & Golf Tipsters, win or lose – Rowan is always refreshingly honest and realistic on the performance he achieves.

You can read Rowan’s weekly updates every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday via the Smart Betting Club Bet Diary.

For those of you keen to build your own tipster portfolio, he shares his thoughts on how best to approach this and how to choose tipsters that suit you, your budget, experience and bookmakers available.

We also get into the topic of bookmaker restrictions and how he gets around that with a few tips for account longevity and using the exchanges.

Its an ideal podcast for those of you interested in making money via tipsters and the experience Rowan can share on his success over the years doing exactly this.

New Podcast: Exploring Tipsters & How To Choose The Right Ones To Follow

The latest SBC podcast is out now for download and its an ‘exploring tipsters’ special as Rowan and I discuss some key findings from our 2 recently released reports on horse racing and sports betting.

Using examples from each report, we discuss our work tracking and examining tipsters including how we weigh up those to recommend to you via our Hall of Fame ratings.

We get into topics like fair odds quoting and settlement, the importance of return on capital, the need for large sample sizes and why the average Hall of Fame service has been going over 4 years!

It’s a must-listen episode if you are looking for help and guidance on how to choose tipsters that suit you and that generate realistic profits

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


Whether you are a seasoned tipster user or completely new to the concept, this podcast should explain plenty on what you need to know about tipsters and how to find the service(s) that work best for you, whatever your circumstances.

Rowan and I discuss key concepts such as the importance of Return on Capital over Return on Investment and why we black mark tipsters that quote unrealistic or unsustainable prices that can kill your betting accounts.

We also chat about the popular golf tipster, Ben Coley and the need to not go overboard on recent form and why so many people are lured in with unrealistic expectations and how bookmakers take advantage of that.

This latest podcast syncs up perfectly with the 2 recently released Tipster Profit Reports on Sports Betting and Horse Racing.

Betting on Golf Via Betfair & Betting Exchanges

Can I bet on golf on the betting exchanges and make a profit?

This is one of the most common questions I currently receive as punters making a profit betting on golf with bookmakers start looking to betting exchanges such as Betfair as a solution to get their bets on.

Usually this question is posed because bookmaker restrictions have started to bite, because as most of us are aware – if making a profit betting, bookmakers will eventually either close you down or limit your stakes.

Whilst golf betting does often extend your bookmaker account shelf-life for various reasons (variance, spread of winners vs losers, belief you got lucky), at some point it does become an issue if making sustained profits.

Which is where the betting exchanges such as Betfair come in, especially if betting on the PGA Tour where each week lots of money is traded on betting exchanges – who crucially do not limit or restrict winning accounts.

This is also all part of the journey as a punter. Win money with bookmakers first of all. Then migrate to Betfair once your accounts dry up for more scalable long-term options.


To explore this question on golf betting exchange suitability, my team and I have run the numbers on the PGA Profit service if taking Win and Top 5 Betfair prices on his selections and comparing that to bookmaker odds on the same players if backed each way.

We gathered the odds for each market dating back to November 2020 at both bookmakers and Betfair as part of this analysis.

You can read the full breakdown in this free-to-read PDF but the headline news is that betting with Betfair is only slightly less profitable with a 4.98% ROI drop.

Here is how it looks:

To explain this table – we have 420 each way bets and 13 win only bets advised by PGA Profit since November 2020.

Over the course of these 433 bets, PGA Profit has made a 646 point profit with bookmakers, yet also a 551.47 point profit at Betfair Exchange odds.

The difference in ROI between the two is 4.98% with a 33.73% Bookmaker ROI and a 28.75% Betfair Exchange ROI

Suggesting that there is only a 4.98% ROI drop if taking Betfair’s Win market and Top 5 market odds VS placing these bets each way with a bookmaker.


If this interests you, then you can read the full PDF on this analysis free of charge via this link.

It explains more on the analysis we did and the differences between betting each-way with bookmakers and Win/Top 5 markets on Betfair.

For those of you totally new to golf betting, then I also recommend our sample golf-betting guide from earlier in 2022.

It includes details on 5 of the best tipsters and strategies we recommend, plus a full lowdown on how each of the SBC team fared betting on golf in 2021 (including the tipsters we used)

A 41.23% ROI at Cheltenham and the top performing tipster

Another year of the Cheltenham Festival has come and gone and after a hectic few days of betting, it ended up another successful 4 days for SBC’s tipster blogger, Rowan Day to the tune of +40 points profit @ 41.23% ROI

After each day he has reported back on the winners and losers as put up by the recommended tipsters he follows in his usual Bet Diary column.

These tipsters are a mix of Hall of Fame rated racing tipsters and SBC’s own experts – all of those we advocate to follow and with long-term profitable records.

Here is what Rowan made in total over the course of the festival this week:

  • Points staked: 97.37 points
  • Points profit: 40.15 points
  • 41.23% ROI

Full details on his week can be found via the Bet Diary.

No Monkeying Around!

This week’s standout service was the Hall of Fame expert tipster Northern Monkey Punter who backed a series of winners over the course of the festival.

Northern Monkey Punter is just one example of how SBC’s tipster reviews and ratings can help you find the best experts to follow in.

This is a Hall of Fame rated service and SBC members can get a 2 week trial of Northern Monkey Punter as part of a special deal so they can sample what is on offer.

You can also read more about all of the tipster services Rowan follows via his regular Bet Diary posts.

He also follows a series of Golf and Sports tipsters, which have also been very successful so far in 2021 (and prior to that too) so even if horse racing is not your thing, you will find something to enjoy.

About The Bet Diary

Rowan’s Bet Diary is written to help communicate some of the practical realities of following tipsters to make money betting.

Each week on the Bet Diary, Rowan discusses his ongoing betting journey including the tipsters he follows, and his performance using their advice (win or lose – he is always refreshingly honest!).

The idea behind the Bet Diary is to provide some real-life, genuine, experiences of just how the tipsters we rate and recommend can actually make you a realistic extra income stream.

Whether it’s to simply make some extra pocket money, fund a family holiday, or to generate a sustainable second income – his Bet Diary will be able to help you achieve your goals.

The Best Tipster Guide: Your Questions Answered


Last week saw the release of our much-anticipated 2018 Best Tipster Guide and its publication has triggered a lot of questions from many of you exactly on how it can help you make money betting.

So, to help answer some of your most common questions on its release and how it can help you, I have put together the following FAQ.

Tackling everything on just what is inside the Best Tipster Guide it should help explain more on exactly how this guide is your ticket to betting success.

Including how you can save £528.50 via 7 unique savings deals – 5X more than the cost of purchasing the Best Tipster Guide in the first place!

2018 BTG 468X60

Q1) What exactly is the Best Tipster Guide?

It’s a 3-part guide featuring detailed, new reviews on 14 top tipsters we recommend to follow during 2018 and beyond. Here is how it breaks down:

  • The 2018 Best Tipster Guide will feature 4 new top tipster reviews, all due to be released during the course of 2018. The very first review is out now and tackles the racing tipster up 457 points profit at 14.5% ROI since 2015.
  • The 2017 Best Tipster Guide, featuring reviews of 5 more top tipsters who continue to make consistent profits;
  • The original 2016 Best Tipster Guide, which featured our first 5 top-rated tipsters, each of whom have also continued to make a profit through 2017.

Q2) How good are the tipsters inside it?

Well with a name like the ‘Best Tipster Guide‘, it’s safe to assume that all of the tipsters within it are highly rated!

Here are a few highlights:

  • The Racing Tipster Up 711.4% Bank Growth In 2017
    (Including 406% Growth Over The 2nd Half of 2016!)
  • The Outstanding Racing Guru Up 1428 Points Profit Since 2013
  • The New Football Expert Averaging 50% Growth Year-In, Year-Out
  • The Racing Tipster With 1178 Points Profit In 6 Years
  • The Free Tipster With 302 Points Profit From 1769 Bets

Q3) How will the Best Tipster Guide help me make money?

Quite simply by showcasing 14 of the very best betting tipsters we recommend for you to follow.

Read our reviews, choose the tipsters you like the most and start following their tips in!

It really is as simple as that.

You need no betting expertise yourself – simply follow the right experts with the proven track records of beating the bookmaker (or the betting exchanges)

Q4) Are the reviews from the 2016 and 2017 Best Tipster Guides still relevant?

A good question and the simple answer is YES, they are very relevant!

Although 10 of the tipsters in the Best Tipster Guide were first reviewed and recommended back in 2016 and 2017, they have continued to make substantial profits in recent times.

Proof if needed that these are not here-today, gone-tomorrow tipsters that are chasing a quick buck but genuine long-term money making experts.

To give a quick example, one top tipster we recommended in the 2016 Best Tipster Guide had a 2017 to remember making a whopping 139.3 points profit at 44.9% ROI throughout.

Not bad considering he only tips one bet per day and is incredibly easy to follow.

“Managed An Incredible Net Profit Of £11,595″……

“I managed an incredible net profit of £11,595 (after fees). I’m now free from credit card debt for the first time in years and planning a cruise with my long suffering wife for our Silver wedding anniversary – happy days!”

Actual SBC member testimonial  Read More

Q5) How much do the tipsters featured inside the Best Tipster Guide cost to subscribe to?

We do our best to focus in on those tipsters offering the best, most value for money service possible.

There are a wide range of tipsters featured with the Best Tipster Guide, including those free to follow, although most fall into the category of between £20 to £40 average cost per month.

Some cost more, some less, but the key is always making sure you can return a fine profit long-term beyond a tipster and their subscription fees.

Before we recommend any tipster, we make sure that any fees they charge are dwarfed by the profits made and this is the case with those within the Best Tipster Guide.

Q6) How can I save on the cost of joining the tipsters featured within the Best Tipster Guide?

Due to our independent stance (see Q7) we are able to negotiate substantial discounts and deals for many of the tipsters within the Best Tipster Guide.

For example, one of the top tipsters in the Best Tipster Guide is offering a £128 discount on the cost of a year long subscription to his service.

Saving you more than the cost of purchasing the Best Tipster Guide in the first place.

Another is offering you the chance to join his service for a year for just £50 – A saving of £200!

There are many more deals like this available to you – at the time of writing there are 7 discounts with a total saving of up to £528.50 if taking them all up.

These savings often come to a greater sum than the cost of accessing the Best Tipster Guide in the first place.

“90-Day 100% Satisfaction Refund Guarantee”……

“I believe so strongly in SBC’s ability to help your betting, you can subscribe with a 100% cast-iron 90-day refund guarantee”. Read all about it!

SBC Editor – Peter Ling

Q7) How do I know your tipster reviews are genuine and to be trusted?

This is a very important question as whilst there are a ton of ‘free tipster reviews’ available on the Internet, almost all of them are biased towards you buying into the service they are reviewing.

This is because they generate their revenue from a share of the subscriptions they help to sell on behalf of the tipster they are reviewing. Therefore, it’s in their interests to show it in the best possible light.

Here at the Smart Betting Club, we have a different model.

Instead – all of our tipster reviews are 100% independent and we have no vested interest or financial gain from those tipsters featured in the Best Tipster Guide.

Therefore, when we say a tipster is good, it’s because it genuinely is, not because someone is paying us to say so!

2018 BTG 468X60

Q8) Ok I’m in, How do I gain access to the Best Tipster Guide?

Simple – All you need is a Platinum ‘Pro Punter’ subscription, which also provides you everything else the Smart Betting Club service offers.

Including all our SBC Magazines, Tipster Profit Reports, Bet Diary Pro & Tipping Forum access PLUS it also comes with our 90-day refund guarantee.

14 Of The Very Best Tipsters Explored

The ground-breaking Best Tipster Guide comes in 3 key parts as follows:

  • The 2018 Best Tipster Guide featuring 4 new top tipster reviews due for release throughout 2018 (the first of which is out now!)
  • The 2017 Best Tipster Guide, featuring reviews of 5 more top tipsters, who continue to make consistent profits;
  • The original 2016 Best Tipster Guide, which featured our first 5 top-rated tipsters, each of whom have also continued to make a profit through 2017.

By purchasing access to the Best Tipster Guide, you will receive full access to all 14 detailed tipster reviews and unique tipster discounts.

You can find out exactly who these tipsters are and how you can start profiting from their advice with access to the Best Tipster Guide, but to give you a flavour, here is a brief rundown on 3 of the 14 tipsters and why they are so good…

1. The Tipster Up 457 Points Profit In 2 1/2 Years

Over the course of 2 and 1/2 years and 1176 bets, this tipster has made a fantastic profit of 457.1 points at a very impressive 14.5% Return on Investment.

This is even more of an achievement, when you consider they have achieved this by backing horses priced at around the 11/4 marker – effectively by backing 1st or 2nd favourites.

Furthermore, our review reveals the distinct edge their tips have both at Betfair SP and by backing them on the Betfair exchange each morning. Showcasing the possibility that you can follow this tipster quite readily on the betting exchanges.

2. The Racing Tipster Up 711.4% Bank Growth In 2017 (Plus Another 406% Growth Over The 2nd Half of 2016!)

This unique racing tipster service has been producing some phenomenal results for three years now.

In the second half of 2016 alone, this tipster made 812 points profit from 3845 bets at a Return on Investment of 16.64%. Most crucially of all, if following our recommended betting bank that equated to 406% bank growth in just a 6 month period!

2017 showed no let up in form either as this service made a mind-boggling 14,228.04 points profit from 7162 bets advised throughout the course of the year. This is a ROI of 15.27% and betting bank growth of an unbelievable 711.4%!

3. The Betting Guru With 484 Points Profit @ 21.8% ROI In 8 Years (Including a ridiculous 44.9% ROI in 2017!)

It takes a special tipster to make a profit over an 8 year period, but this is exactly what this racing guru achieved between 2009 and 2016 – averaging 60 points profit each year.

His simple 1-bet-a-day strategy that has proven to last the test of time and is extremely easy to follow. The 19.4% Return on Investment achieved long-term is testament to his success.

This outstanding form continued into 2017 with a whopping 139.3 points profit at 44.9% ROI added to his profit tally throughout the year.

The Pro-Punter Package

As well as gaining access to the full Best Tipster Guide, a Platinum Smart Betting Club membership also grants you full access to our complete ‘Professional Punter’ package including:

Final Call – Fill In Our Bookie Restrictions & Closures Survey!

Final Call – Fill In The SBC Restrictions & Closures Survey!

If yet to do so – make sure you fill in our 2016 Bookmaker Restrictions & Closures Survey before it closes on Tuesday the 9th August.

Featuring just 11 simple questions – your answers will help us to raise awareness of this issue – with a full analysis as to the depth of the problem due in our forthcoming FREE ‘Getting On’ report.

All who complete the survey can also enter a free prize draw to win a brand new Toshiba Laptop Computer.

You can read more on the survey and our planned report below…


Take SBC’s 2016 Restrictions & Closures Bookie Survey

In my regular conversations with punters, one of the biggest issues often raised is the level of stake restrictions and account closures faced by many of them when betting.

For those unaware – certain bookmakers do operate a policy of either restricting the level of stake allowed or simply closing accounts from those punters they deem as ‘unprofitable’ – especially those betting on horse racing only. Some bookies are worse than others but after years of denying this problem exists, it is these days widely accepted as fact.

To get a handle on the depth of this problem, the Horseracing Bettors Forum (created by the BHA in August 2015 to represent punters interests) published their own findings recently which claimed that as many as 20,000 accounts had been closed in the past 6 months alone.

As useful as HBF’s survey was, I want to take this a step further and am inviting as many as you as possible to fill in our own 2016 Bookmaker Restrictions & Closures Survey, which I believe will uncover a lot more on this problem – including naming and shaming the very worst offenders.

Take SBC’s 2016 Restrictions & Closures Bookie Survey

All who fill in the survey can also enter a free prize draw to win a brand new
Toshiba Chromebook Laptop


This survey features 11 simple questions, should take you no more than 2-3 minutes to fill in and your answers will help us to reveal:

  • The best & worst bookmakers when it comes to restrictions and closures;
  • Which sports and markets suffer the most restrictions;
  • The type of punters being restricted and how your staking amounts, bet frequency and method of betting impacts this;
  • The best & worst bookmakers as rated by you;
  • What tactics you can employ to help avoid betting restrictions

Why you should answer the survey (Plus how you can win a Toshiba Computer for doing so!)

First of all, be assured that you can fill in the survey completely anonymously – thus allowing you to say exactly what you think and share your experiences honestly. Most bookmakers view the Smart Betting Club as a major nuisance given our work helping punters make money betting (and consequently help the bookies lose it!) so you can be assured no details will be shared with them.

The complete findings from this survey will be revealed in a special FREE Report due to be released later on this year. Granting you full access to all of these results PLUS exposing the truth about bookmaker restrictions and closures to a wider audience. We ran a similar survey back in 2013 although this time we will be publishing our entire findings for free on the SBC website for all to view.

As the Smart Betting Club is 100% bookmaker independent, we are happy to name and shame the worst culprits (as well as highlighting those offering a good service) and will do so in this forthcoming report.

All who complete the survey can also enter a free prize draw to win a brand new Toshiba CB30 Chromebook. A superb laptop computer with a 13.3” screen, Celeron 2.16 GHZ processor and 9 hours of battery life – ideal for betting with!

Once you finish the survey you will be invited to enter the prize draw with the lucky winner to be revealed once the survey closes.


Help Spread The Word!

To make the survey is as impactful as possible, we want as many punters as possible to fill it in so your help in getting the word out on this will be essential!

The simple truth is that the more punters taking part, the greater the interest level will be from the powers that be in its results.

I also have held discussions with journalists from a number of major publications and broadcasters who are very interested in what this survey might uncover.

So once you fill it in, please feel free to share the survey link with your friends via Text, Email, Twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp – however and whichever way you choose to do so!

‘Getting On’ – Free Report Tackling This Huge Issue

This survey is the pre-cursor to the release later this summer of a specialist SBC Report ‘Getting On’, which will be published for free.

The goal of the ‘Getting On’ report is not only to raise awareness of this issue but to tackle it from all angles including:
