5 Expert Football Betting Tips From A Pro Gambler

For anyone wanting to make a profit betting, I have long extolled the virtues of developing your own expertise in a niche area – be it a niche sport, league or betting market.

The logic behind this is strong as bookmakers have a very limited resource pool in terms of the number of odds compilers they employ, making it impossible for them to be experts in every betting field.

In fact many bookies these days simply base their prices on those listed at Betfair or by using set formula to form their odds – effectively seeing them operate blind with no knowledge of any of the intricacies of each betting market.

So if you know a decent amount about a sport or niche market – you could be sitting on a potential betting goldmine to beat the bookies with.

There is perhaps no better example of this than with the non-league expert tipster Skeeve, who has made a profit betting since 2006 in his chosen leagues.

A shrewder, more experienced ‘niche bettor’ you will struggle to find and for the first time in this article, he has shared 5 of his very best, expert football betting tips for those of you keen to make money on non-league football

Skeeve’s 5 Expert Non-League Football Betting Tips

1)      Pick a league. No, not eight leagues – if you have a busy lifestyle, a league or two are more than enough. You’ll have to know the language of course – if you’re trying to focus on the Scottish 2nd Division and you only speak German, well, I won’t be subscribing to your service, thank you very much.

2)      Don’t take your eyes off the stats. I use the statto.com website and that, combined with my own excel sheets, is pretty much everything I need as far as stats are concerned. When you’re looking  at the stats for a team that’s playing away from home, you don’t just look at their overall away form or at their away form in the last six games.

Look at their results away at struggling teams or away at top ten teams. Look at their midweek games only or their Saturday games only. Look at the games they played in heavy rain and in a strong wind. Look at the games they were forced to play without their key midfielder. As I said, every little thing is the most important thing.

3)      Don’t think online editions of local papers are useless. That’s where you find out who’s still injured, who’s returned to training and who’s been made available for a loan. That’s where you read a pre-match interview with the manager and a post-match interview with the skipper. That’s where you notice the game might not go ahead at all because of the torrential rain in that part of England.

4)      Don’t ignore the fans’ forums. That’s where you hear the latest rumours. That’s where you read about fans’ mood. That’s where you find out how much longer is their centre-half going to be out with a nasty injury. That’s where you feel stupid for being a researcher and not a fan. Getting ahead of the bookies on team news is extremely important, especially in the lower leagues. I think I can identify key players well enough and I always laugh when I notice the BBC forget about a couple of suspensions or don’t mention the new signings, stuff like that. That’s why official websites, online editions of local papers and fans’ forums are very important

5)      Take a look at all match highlights you can find. It’s one thing to read the match reports written from two different perspectives, but when you see the actual ten-minute highlights, it’s almost like seeing all characters from your novel come to life at the same time. There’s plenty of match highlights available on the internet and, if you’re keeping an eye on fans’ forums, local papers and official websites, you’ll know where to find what you’re looking for.

Sample Our Review Of This Fantastic Free Racing Tipster

Its fair to say that January can be a tight month at the best of times, so it makes sense to cut costs where you can.

So with this in mind we waited until this month to share with all SBC members our review of a little known FREE racing tipster service, which has been making eye-watering profits for the past 2 years now.

As our exclusive analysis reveals, this free to all tipster has made 115.16 pts profit from 249 bets at a Return On Investment of 36.85% in 2010 and 2011 – which is a huge profit.

To put this into financial terms – at simple £25 stakes, this would be a very handy £2,879 profit in 2 years. Who would turn that kind of money down these days?

To give you an insight into just how good this service is, below we have a number of extracts from our exclusive review for you to read. We have removed the services identity as this is for SBC members only, but it should give you a good idea of how good it is. Continue reading

How This Simple Golf Strategy Made £8900 In 2011…

As a sport, golf can certainly divide opinions.

I quite enjoy spending a few hours hacking up the local pitch and put, but I know a good number of people who see it as a ‘good walk spoiled’.

One thing can’t be denied though – when attacked from the right angle, golf can be an incredibly profitable sport for betting no matter what you think of the sport.

With massive fields where even the favourite can be as high as 10/1, golf betting can offer rich rewards at big odds.

Of course, you need a strategy to make sure you’re able to pick up the bets with the biggest value. One angle I suggest you start with is course form. Here’s why…. Continue reading

How To Bet On Corners – Part 1

One of the best ways to make money when it comes to football betting is to specialise. That is – to drill down into ‘niche’ betting areas where the bookies are vulnerable as they simply don’t have the time to check the odds on every market.

For example, take a look at any Premier League football game with one of the major bookmakers. Each game often has a bewildering array of sub-markets beyond just the simple Team X to beat Team Y traditional bet. Then multiply those markets by the number of games in an average weekend – the amount of markets to bet upon goes into the thousands!

With so many markets the bookies get lazy and use computers and formulas to help them price up some of the more obscure bets – leaving them vulnerable to a shrewd punter with an eye for value!

One such area they are particularly vulnerable in and ripe for exploitation is that of ‘Corners Betting’, which a number of our experts at SBC have been tapping into of late. Which is why we have this first part of a 3 part guide on ‘how to bet on corners’ to share with you.

If you like this article, be sure to check out our full corners betting insight, including our full strategy to make it work and interviews with 4 corner betting experts in Secret Betting Club Issue #67.

Betting On Corners – An Introduction

For those of you new to betting on corners, it’s worth running through some of the basics to get you up to speed.

To help with this we will use the Genoa V Inter game from the 13th December. The best prices are as follows:

Genoa: 3.50
Inter: 2.32
Draw: 3.35

Next, lets look at the corners betting for this game and one one of the most popular markets – the team to enjoy the most corners during the game. As you might imagine, this is a simple bet on Team A to get more corners than Team B. Although it is worth noting that if corners tally is equal at the end of the game, this bet will lose.

Looking at the markets for most corners, three bookies had priced this up and the best prices for each team were as follows:

Genoa: 2.35
Inter: 2.1
Draw: 7.0

Comparing these prices on most corners to the market on which team will win, the bookies seem to think that Genoa have a much greater chance (2.35) of winning the most corners market than the actual game (where they are 3.50).

Naturally we have to factor in the fact a draw in the most corners market is much less likely than a draw in the actual scoreline, yet that is quite a drop. There must have been something about Genoa and their style of play (and no doubt historical record when it comes to corners to see them such a short price).

Indeed, this short price on Genoa to win the most corners was correct as although Inter won the game 1-0 in a fairly dominant performance, Genoa still went on to win on corners 6 – 4.

Corners Handicaps Explained

For some fixtures, especially those whereby there is a strong favourite, you also might like to consider betting in the Corners Handicap markets.

To illustrate when such a bet might be appropriate lets study this fixture between Tottenham and Sunderland, where the home side were strong favourites at just 2/5 to win the game.

Reflecting the expected dominance from Spurs, Bet365 also priced up the most corners market as follows: 1/7 Spurs, 11/2 Sunderland and the draw at 10/1.

Many punters quite rightly are not keen to take on 1/7 favourites too regularly and so in this instance, you may want to consider betting with a handicap, that is to say to give Sunderland a head start on corners, which levels out the price and playing field. This can be found in the ‘Corner Handicap’ market, which is also fairly popular.

In the same Spurs- Sunderland game, Bet365 offer the following Corners Handicap market:

In this instance, you are effectively starting the game with Sunderland 4 corners ahead of Spurs. You can then take 21/20 on either Sunderland or Spurs with that in mind or on the 13/2 on it being level pegging.

Often times, this can be a fairly decent market to play if as we see above the outright most corners market is offering stingy odds.

Betting on: Tennis, Soccer & Basketball
Following: 10 tipsters

I have made around 20k per year extra through betting. Its very difficult to say how much this website has contributed but knowledge and discipline are key and SBC reinforces that. AH Edge, On the Oche, Football Investor have definitely contributed to my profits so I’d guess it has made me around 5k a year of my profit. (I used to record all my bets religiously but have been slack in recent times)

Name: K

Betting on: Predominantly horse racing
Following: 11 tipsters

I like that the SBC is independent. I know that when they recommend a tipster, or upgrade or downgrade an existing rating, that their opinion is based on results and judgement, not on hidden commissions.

The tipster tables are great because you can zero in on the type of tipster you’re looking for – in my case, I look at the more affordable and low workload options. I’ve discovered that tipsters who charge enormous amounts don’t necessarily do any better than those who charge moderately. I read the reviews to determine if there is anyone new I want to follow. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, SBC gave me confidence that it is possible to make decent profits over time by following tipsters, if you are disciplined.

Name: Billy McPherson
Joined: 2011
Betting on: NFL, College Football, NBA, College Basketball, Baseball, NHL Ice Hockey, Aussie Rules Football, NRL (Australian Rugby League), Golf, Tennis, Football
Following: 22 tipsters

My total profits since joining SBC are well over $1 million of which SBC approved tipsters account for about 25% of that amount.

SBC is a legitimate source for finding successful tipsters in the world of so many dishonest tipsters. All tipsters have been thoroughly vetted, and all sections are proofed with high accuracy therefore ensuring tipsters of high quality. I would recommend anyone purchasing any service through any source to paper trade to ensure consistency, obtaining value odds and results until you are confident that the service can return a profit to a reasonable level that meets your expectations.

Following a fantastic start to 2017 so far [i am in profit to the tune of] £35210 in 23 months. Thanks guys!!! Whilst things have moved on fantastically since Day One, SBC was undoubtedly the biggest single factor in setting me up for success at the outset. You gave me the confidence to get through a horrendous start where I lost £3776 of my opening £5k in the first 82 days. Without you, I would have lost my bottle completely.

The SBC magazines are very informative with regular tipster profit reports. They have a great forum for people to promote their free tips and i always look forward to reading Rowan’s bet diary. Betting can be a lonely game at times so it’s always nice to hear how other people are doing.

I’m not going to go into figures but i will say that since I joined the SBC, my betting profits have paid for all my foreign holidays, which i take 4 times a year!

Following: 6 in total

SBC membership has opened up new avenues and advice that I hadn’t considered previously such as keeping proper records, introducing lay bets and how they operated plus their lists of good and bad tipsters to avoid. During my first full year of using proper bookmakers, I made a profit of £42,134. However this meant six accounts were restricted and four closures…..a high price to pay!

Total Corner Markets

Another very popular angle for corners betting relates to the number in each game, with the ‘total corners’ market worth exploring.

The majority of games finish with between 9 to 11 corners, so it’s normal to see markets based on over or under these figures.

For example, take the St Johnstone V Aberdeen game, where you can see a whole range of spreads on Oddschecker depending on what bet you wish to take…

There are plenty of markets on show here to illustrate the choice on offer to you such as…

Under 9 corners – Ladbrokes are offering the best priced 7/4 that there will be less than 9 corners.
Under 10 corners – Skybet, Blue Square & 888 Sport are offering 11/10 there will be less than 10 corners.
Over 10 corners – Bet365 are offering evens that there will be more than 10 corners.
Under 11 corners – Victor Chandler offering only 7/10 on less than 11 corners
Over 11 corners – Sporting Bet are offering 7/4 on over 11 corners in this market

There are also a range of other bets you can take such as exactly 10 corners or spreads such as between 9-11 corners with Sportingbet at 6/4.

The shrewd of you may notice the differences in prices between a number of bookies in this market. For example in the over 11 corners market, Paddy Power offer only evens, whilst Ladbrokes and Sporting bet go 13/8 and 7/4. Making it clear how important it can be to shop around when betting on corners.

Often you will find a whole range of other markets if you investigate further, so there are plenty of areas to specialise further such as:

  • Half with most corners
  • Most corners in first/second half
  • Race to 3 corners
  • Half corners over/unders
  • Total corners – home or away team

My advice though would be to steer clear of more random markets such as First or Last Corner or even the Time of first corner as these play into the bookies hands. It would be very hard to predict such an outcome.

Fink Tank Value System Update: Big Winners landed

It’s been an interesting festive period to say the least with the big teams  appearing to join Wayne Rooney in focusing more on the festive cheer than their hard working opponents.

Most of the top teams were over turned in the festive/ new year period with last night’s Man U defeat the icing on the cake. It’s been a bad period for Alex Ferguson, but the Fink Tank value system has had a cracking time. Here are some of the bets it picked out recently:

  • Villa to beat Chelsea away at 14.8.
  • Blackburn to beat Man U away at 21.0
  • Sunderland to beat Man City at home at 7.0
  • Fulham to beat Arsenal at 4.33
  • Bolton to beat Everton away at 7.5
  • Newcastle to beat Man U at home at 5.5
