5 Stages of Profitable Betting Follow-Up: Send Us Your Questions!

As an accompaniment to the launch of our brand new ‘5 Stages of Profitable Betting‘ resource, myself, Rowan and Josh¬†recorded a recent podcast¬†to talk about our betting journeys, sharing our knowledge about each stage along the way.

We have been delighted with the response to this pod and, as a result, we have decided to do a follow up to answer the many questions that have come in since.

So far, we have had many queries, including:

  • The best tips on getting started as a total newbie?
  • What order (and how) to work on the ‘soft’ bookmaker platforms to delay restrictions and obtain as much profit as possible?
  • Which tipsters are best for those who want to pay for expert advice?
  • Recommended bankrolls for each stage?
  • Free tipsters at The SBC and how some of them are different from ‘the norm’?
  • Using Bet Brokers, How to choose the right one and accessing Pinnacle odds.

We would love to have more questions to answer so if any of the things we talked about left you wanting to know more, then please get in touch. You can do this by Tweeting us @SBCInfo or by emailing josh@smartbettingclub.com.

We look forward to hearing from you!

 

 

ūüéßGetting On With Sharp Bookmakers & Brokers: A Chat With Top Tipster, Skeeve

With our new 5 Stages of Profitable Betting, Bet Broker Guide and Exchange & Sharp Bookmaker Tipster resources all proving to be very popular, we have enlisted help from our community to provide further practical advice about maximising returns and accessing the very best platforms to place bets.

Earlier in August, this SBC Member article was penned, providing an introduction to using Bot Software to place personal bets or follow tipsters effectively on exchanges.

Skeeve Chat

To learn more about betting with Sharp Bookmakers, SBC, Editor Pete recently discussed this with the tipster, Skeeve, who has been making a profit for himself and his followers using the likes of Pinnacle for several years.

You can listen to this in full via the audio link below, where Pete and Skeeve talked about:

  • Waiting for team news and tipping in the hour before kick-off
  • Liquidity and price sensitivity
  • Skeeve’s fair odds policy and how it is central to his operation
  • Quoting Pinnacle prices and bettering those odds with soft bookmakers, exchanges and even in shops!
  • Beating the market with both advised prices and at the closing line
  • Skeeve’s record by different metrics & his own tissues’ accuracy

Betting & Tipping Via Sharp Bookmakers With Skeeve

 

Skeeve is an expert of lower league football, with a profitable record stretching back 17 years. A veteran of the SBC Hall of Fame, Skeeve discussed his process in detail in SBC Podcast Episode #16.

He has also written for us in the past, with this guide giving punters of all stripes some pointers about what to do (or not to do!) if you want to make betting pay.

New Service Tier & SBC Discounts

Skeeve is unashamedly setup for the bigger punters out there – those of you at perhaps Stage 4 or 5 of your betting journey. This is why most of Skeeve’s members stake quite heavily, making the 75 Euro monthly fee well worth their investment.

To make the service more affordable for a wider audience, Skeeve has now introduced a second tier at half the price, with the only difference being that tips are released slightly later.

With this service being profitable at the Pinnacle closing line there is still plenty of value to be had with this new tier.

In addition, SBC Members can get sizeable discounts with a 250 Euro saving on core packages (down from 750 Euro per season) and a 50 Euro saving on the new ‘half price tier’ available.

This means that with SBC Membership, you could save more than an the cost of annual subscription with this discount alone!

Skeeve has proven himself as¬†the¬†lower league football expert with over 17 years’ worth of tips. I hope that you enjoy our chat¬†and (as his SBC HoF title indicates) his service is well worth a look too!

ūüéßSBC Podcast #59 (Part 1): 5 Stages of Profitable Betting

In the latest SBC Podcast I have something a little different for you.

Instead of interviewing a ‘traditional’ guest, I was joined by two of my SBC colleagues,¬†Rowan and Josh,¬†to discuss our new resource –¬†The 5 Stages of Profitable Betting.

(The 5 stages takes you from beginner through to expert and all points on the ‘betting journey’ from using regular bookies to exchanges and sharp bookies/brokers)

Many betting podcasts (including ours) focus on interesting stories, guests’ opinions or in-depth discussions about services. Whilst I love making (and listening) to this content, what we have here is¬†practical advice¬†for bettors of all levels, with our personal experiences referenced at every stage.

We start off with advice for new bettors and progress through to (inevitable) account restrictions, using sharp bookmakers, increasing volume and so much more.

Whatever stage of betting you are at – beginner through to hardened pro – we hope that there is something inside for you!

Please be aware that there is a Part 2, where we discuss specific tipsters for each stage. To access this content, you will require a SBC Membership.

You can listen to Episode 59 (Part 1) now via Apple /Spotify / Google / YouTube and all other major podcast directories (search Smart Betting Club)

An in-depth chat about how to maximise your profit

In this episode Rowan, Josh and I discuss:

  • Our first tipster experiences and how we started out
  • Understanding how risk appetite, time, account availability and your own mentality will affect which services are best for you
  • Getting to know yourself as a bettor
  • Betting banks, research and setting yourself up for success
  • Recording results and different ways to measure tipster services
  • Drawdown analysis and why it can help put losing runs into context
  • Sports markets and how they are different
  • Starting out
  • Bookmaker accounts – ‘dos and don’ts’
  • Tipsters – what to look for and what to avoid
  • Diversifying, building and more advanced betting
  • Managing bookmaker accounts when restrictions bite
  • The different types of betting mediums, from soft and sharp bookmakers through to exchanges and shops
  • The challenges of betting in higher volumes with lower ROIs
  • Adapting over time and the challenges that this presents

This was an enjoyable podcast to record and we hope that you get something from what we discussed! ‘The 5 Stages of Profitable Betting’ is introduced¬†on this page¬†with more detail about what is inside the site for¬†members.

Part 2 – Discover the services we recommend

The good news is that we have also recorded a Part Two, where we go into more depth and share specific services that are suitable at each stage.

This includes some of the tipsters we have either followed in the past or do so at the moment. We talk about why we chose them, how best to use them and which stage(s) they are suitable for.
