Ever since the arrival of Betfair back in 1999, punters have finally been able to act like bookmakers and try our hand at making money from laying bets.
However, the reality is that laying can be a very difficult game indeed and it’s crucial you fully understand how laying works prior to getting heavily involved.
And with a rise in the number of people and tipsters I see laying these days, I wanted to pen a few key pointers to help shed some light on the subject.

Today I am pleased to unveil the first in a series of SBC interviews with winning punters, cunningly titled the ‘How I Make Money Betting’ series.
Kick-started today with the publication of our interview with Andrew, AKA ‘The Value Bettor’ – one of the very finest horse racing brains out there (as judged by the phenomenal returns he has made tipping over the years), the goal with these interviews is to provide inspiration and guidance to you from the experts who are making their betting pay.
Can you make money backing favourites? Yes, but only if you are backing the right favourites as the newly reviewed racing tipster from SBC 104 reveals.
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.
Read on for more on this tipster and 4 ‘hidden benefits’ of backing favourites…

With the Aintree Grand National meeting coming up – a time when thousands of new bookmaker accounts are being opened from people with no idea about betting, it’s also a fantastic time for shrewd punters to hide in plain sight and have your accounts ‘coded’ as safe.
To explain more on this and to help you best understand how bookies track your accounts, I wanted to share an article written by a bookie insider for the Secret Betting Club on this very topic.
This insider has spent years working on both sides of the betting fence so is uniquely positioned to offer advice about how to get your bets on.
So if you are worried or impacted by bookmaker restrictions – read on for some essential advice on how to tackle the problem.
I recently released the 2nd review from SBC’s 2018 Best Tipster Guide, focusing in great detail on one of the very best tipsters my review team and I have ever had the pleasure to examine.
But exactly what is it that the SBC review team (and therefore you) should look for in a tipster?
And what qualities does a tipster have for us to enter it into our Best Tipster Guide?
To help answer these questions, today I want to explore the anatomy of a profitable tipster with 5 KEY pointers for you to consider when weighing up whether a tipping service is for you or not.
To help, I will be using this latest Best Tipster Guide expert as a reference point and tackling topics like staking plans, profit levels, exchange backing, odds availability & much more besides…
It was a Cheltenham Festival to remember for us all at the Secret Betting Club, with a whole host of winners from many of the tipsters we recommend though our reviews, reports and magazines.
It’s probably safe to say we helped sting the bookmakers for some significant sums indeed over these past 4 days, including £9k won from a free bet!
It’s little wonder the bookies dislike us so much. Below you can find just a few of the highlighted success stories and how SBC can help you with your betting.
Mindful of the fact you will no doubt be inundated with offers and promotions this Cheltenham Festival, I wanted to share details on just two special deals from the betting exchanges, Smarkets & Matchbook that have taken my eye.
You can enjoy £40 in risk-free bets as a new Smarkets customer OR pay just 0% commission throughout Cheltenham with Matchbook (open to both new and existing customers) in 2 special offers of real note.
Jockeys, pundits, bookies…you name it – everyone is an expert when it comes to picking out tips at Cheltenham, yet the only tipping voices you want to be listening to are those with proven records of making it pay at the famous festival.
Proven records like the expert tipster who throughout each day of Cheltenham will be providing his winning advice totally for free to Secret Betting Club members.
…Then chances are they would have put this service together!
Reviewed in detail in the freshly published 2nd part of the 2018 SBC Best Tipster Guide, we are describing it as one of ‘the very best tipping services we have ever monitored’.
Best of all – it’s a must-read especially ahead of Cheltenham next week, as the the tipster in question focuses solely on National Hunt racing and has made a 35.1% Return on Investment over 1305 bets since 2012.
This current NH season alone he has made a mind-blowing 70.3% ROI from the first 115 bets advised, thanks to a regular pattern of big priced winners in recent months.
