The ‘Oscars’ For Worst Bookmaker: Gold, Silver & Bronze Winners Revealed

As promised, I am back today with the final 2 categories as voted for by you in the 2017 SBC Awards – that of Best Odds Comparison Website and the biggy: Worst Bookmaker.

For those of you that missed my email on Friday with details on who you voted for as Best Bookmaker & Best Betting Website, you can read that here.

SBC Awards 468X60

 

Best Odds Comparison Website

Kick-starting things today with the Best Odds Comparison Website, a new category introduced for the first time in 2017, you voted as follows:

Best-odds-comparison

The inaugural Gold Award was taken by Oddschecker, who have quickly become the go-to website for many of you keen to seek out value for your bets. With a quick, easy to use odds comparison matrix and the ability to bet without leaving their website, it’s a very useful resource for punters keen to find the best odds.

The Silver Award went to Oddsportal, who offer up-to-date odds comparison on a huge range of betting markets, particularly useful for those of you betting on sports such as Football, NBA & NFL.

The Bronze award was taken by BestBetting.com, who provide odds comparison across several different markets including horse racing.

Your Worst Bookmaker Award

Onto one of the most anticipated ‘Awards’ – that of the ‘Worst Bookmaker’ whereby voting was extremely competitive!

Here is who you voted for:

worst-bookmaker

The somewhat surprising Gold Award Winner for Worst Bookmaker with 24% of the votes (I told you it was competitive) was Ladbrokes. Having taken the Bronze Award last year, whatever it is Ladbrokes have been doing in the past 12 months has clearly irked enough of you to put them forward as the worst bookmaker out there. Certainly the ‘Ladbrokes Life’ is not something many of you seem to be aspiring to!

Less surprisingly, the Silver Award went to Stan James, who continue to cement their place as one of the most universally-disliked bookmakers after claiming just under 21% of all votes. Stan James have long been known as one of the worst culprits for betting restrictions, a strong reason behind their poor reputation.

The Bronze Award this year went to last year’s Gold Winner, Boylesports who took 19.4% of your votes. Whether this is down to any improvement or just the fact other firms have got worse is very hard to say, yet the fact still remains there is much to dislike.

Other poorly rated Bookmakers included 4th placed Betfred with 16% of the votes and 5th placed Racebets with 8.41% of the vote.

Over $1 Million In Profits Betting…

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

Why It Pays To Know The Best & Worst Bookmakers

As well as helping us have a bit of fun at their expense, there is a serious side to this award – namely to help raise awareness of those bookmakers treating punters poorly.

One of the main reasons these bookmakers are disliked so much is due to their notoriety as firms that both limit stakes and close accounts for anyone with even a modicum of ability.

Should you for example bother opening accounts with Ladbrokes, Stan James and Boylesports if you expect to win money betting?

In my opinion it is often not worth the time, unless you are keen to take advantage of new account opening offers or simply keen to try to win as much as you can, while you can.

In terms of our own tipster reviews, we regularly mark tipsters down who quote and settle bets to top prices available with the likes of Stan James and Boylesports.

Very often, such prices are a work of fiction as in reality they are not available to all but losing punters. And as the 2017 SBC Awards Report – over 80% of our members made a substantial profit betting last year, so these bookmakers will not be open to them.

Let Them Know They Won!

As it is extremely unlikely that either of Ladbrokes, Stan James or Boylesports will acknowledge their status as the top 3 most disliked bookmakers, it is up to us to raise awareness as the poor quality of service they offer.

With that in mind, feel free to share the following Gold, Silver & Bronze Award winner images on Social Media and link to this email (Via the SBC Blog)

Best Bookmaker & Website / Who YOU Voted For In The 2017 SBC Awards


This Sunday sees the Oscars – the biggest ‘Awards’ night of them all take place in Hollywood, yet for those of you more interested in betting than movies, you won’t want to miss out on the newly-released 2017 SBC Awards Report.

SBC Awards 2017 Cover

The 2017 SBC Awards are here to recognise the best of the tipping and betting world across a variety of markets, sports and costs (yes, we have a best free tipster category) and serve as a great starting point for any self-respecting shrewd punter.

Canvassing the opinions of both SBC members and you, the general betting public, an SBC Award is a much sought after recognition of quality.

Whilst the full SBC Awards Report and the various best tipster category winners are available only to you as a member of the Secret Betting Club, today I am pleased to reveal who won the Best Bookmaker and Best Betting Website categories….


The Best Bookmaker Award

Back in January, I sent out an email inviting your votes across 4 different categories open to the general betting public:

  • Best Bookmaker
  • Best Betting Website
  • Best Odds Comparison Website
  • Worst Bookmaker

Starting with the Best Bookmaker award – an extremely popular category, where you voted in huge numbers with the Gold, Silver & Bronze Awards as follows:

bestbookmaker-results

The eventual Gold Award winner, Bet365 polled over 50% of all votes cast to ensure a clear victory for the Stoke-based firm. Betfair took Silver with just over 20% of the vote, whilst Pinnacle scooped Bronze with approximately 9.5% of all your votes.

Over notable mentions go to William Hill (4th) and Smarkets (5th) who picked up 7.37% and 6.2% of your votes.

Your Best Betting Website

 I also asked you to vote for your favourite betting website, with the results as follows:

Best-betting-website

The proud recipient of this year’s Gold Award was Geegeez.co.uk – who also won by a very clear margin, taking 45% of the overall vote in this category. Geegeez is a largely free resource, featuring a whole host of tools to help your racing betting, including racecards, news, tips & form guides.

The Silver Award went to the ever popular Sporting Life website – another excellent all-round racing resource and the home to the equally popular free ‘Value Bets’ column run by Ben Linfoot.

Rounding things off, Bronze went to everyone’s go-to Odds Comparison website – Oddschecker, who continued to impress with their up-to-the-minute best odds on countless betting markets.

“I Made A Profit Of £42,134”

 During my first full year using proper bookmakers, I made a profit of £42,134.”

Member Experience: How SBC Has Helped My Betting | Ringo

To best illustrate how a Secret Betting Club membership can help improve your betting, I have been conducting a series of interviews with real-life SBC subscribers on the difference our service has made to them.

The latest in this series comes from ‘Ringo’, who in his first full year of SBC membership made over £42,000 from his betting. Here is how he did it…

What’s your name?

Ringo

When did you join the Secret Betting Club?

June 2014

What sports do you bet on?

Horses, Football & Greyhounds

How many tipsters do you follow?

Religiously 4, however I have about 2 more in my portfolio where certain months of the year are more prestigious lets say…

Why did you join the Secret Betting Club?

I wanted advice initially on hints to keep accounts from being closed or restricted. I also liked the access to the forum, the opinions put forward and the access to free information on a trial basis. SBC membership also provides cheaper fees to join tipsters that I liked and is a portal to discover new ventures with added discounts.

How has the Secret Betting Club helped you?

Technically all the above, plus its 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.

What do you like most about the Secret Betting Club service?

The forums and the monthly bulletins updating me on current issues and performance figures.

How much have you made betting since you joined the Secret Betting Club?

During my first full year 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!

What are your betting plans for the future?

Hopefully to continue betting without restrictions being imposed, religiously following staking plans and spreading bets with smaller stakes with a variety of bookmakers to keep me out of the limelight!

Ringo

Can You Win Betting On Football Accas? Free Report Inside


This Tipster Is – Download His Free Report!

If you enjoy betting on football, chances are you have posed the question…Can I make a profit betting on Football Accumulators? (or Accas as they are often termed)

Well the good news is YES you can profit from accas but only if following an expert tipster like Paul Ruffy, who has a proven strategy on how to make them pay.

Through his tipster service, Matchday Profits (which we have proofed extensively), Paul advises you on the best accas to place and with which bookmaker. So far he has made a minimum of 68 points profit at 43% Return on Investment from his accas alone.

Best of all, Paul has prepared a special free report on his successful football accumulator strategy, which he has kindly allowed me to share with you all today…

Download Paul’s Free ‘How To Win With Football Accumulators’ Report

To showcase his profitable Football Accumulator expertise, Paul has put together a free 12-page report on his betting strategy for you to download.

Click Here To Download Now (link opens up PDF file)

Within this free report you can read:

  • How he has turned the tables on the bookies (who view acca punters as cash cows);
  • Why his method is safe to follow (he is not bonus bagging)
  • His ‘Bankers & Base’ acca strategy and how you can replicate it;
  • His performance with and without acca insurance;
  • The best ‘acca’ bookmakers to place your bets with.

How Not To Be An Acca ‘Mug-Punter’

I am happy to recommend Paul and his Matchday Profits service, having examined it in detail on behalf of SBC members back in August 2016.

I was impressed by his unique and sensible strategy to make a profit betting on football accas, which traditionally have been viewed by bookmakers as a very lucrative market (It attracts what they term ‘mug-punters’).

Paul has turned this on its head as his results below prove (presented both with and without the of ‘acca insurance’)

matchday-profit

Acca insurance is an offer many bookies provide whereby if 1 selection in an acca of 5 or more loses, you get your money back or a free bet. It is not essential to place your bets with a bookie offering acca insurance, but it can help increase your profits.

A full review of Matchday Profits, can be found in Part 5 of our Essential Football Compendium.

Save £20 On The Cost Of A Year’s Membership

In an exclusive deal, all Secret Betting Club members can save £20 on the cost of a year’s subscription to Matchday Profits.

Instead of the usual price of £97 for a year, through the special discount link provided to you as a Secret Betting Club member, you can join Paul for just £77.

But be warned – Paul tells me that he genuinely won’t be able to offer this discount for much longer AND that he expects to have to increase the cost soon too.

So if you want to follow him in – NOW is the time to act.

If signing-up today, you can also jump on Paul’s advice for tonight’s Champions League games, including a likely £30 to £35 free offer from Bet365 you won’t want to miss.

As ever, this special saving is ONLY available to Secret Betting Club subscribers as part of the unique ‘Tipster Discounts‘ we negotiate on their behalf.

Due to the way SBC is funded by member subscriptions – we are able to negotiate these unique deals and pass 100% of the savings onto them. Helping line their pockets, not ours!

Can You Make A Profit Betting At Betfair SP? This Tipster Can…

It’s one of the most common questions I receive these days – Can you recommend a tipster that makes a profit betting at Betfair SP?

The good news is that YES I can recommend a profitable Betfair SP Tipster AND best of all – they are offering you the chance to sample their advice for just £1 for 30 days.

If after 30 days you like their service, you can also save 50% on the ongoing monthly cost.

Interested? I thought so….

Revealed: The Profitable Betfair SP Tipster

The tipster in question is ‘All Weather Profits‘, who we have been proofing at SBC since June 2015, during which time we have personally verified over 1000 tips and witnessed them first-hand making significant profits at Betfair SP.

The All Weather Profits setup is very easy to follow.

They email out a handful of tips between 9 and 10am whenever there is all weather racing to bet upon, with all bets following a fixed staking plan of 2 points to win at Betfair SP.

Check out their results since 2014 below:

allweatherprofits

Results to this simple method have been fantastic during each of the 3 years the service has been live.

2214 bets, a profit of 529.7 points, and a 12% Return on Investment.

And yes – these results do deduct 5% commission from each profitable bet. Thus ensuring that if you have a lower Betfair commission rate (as most people do), you will make a greater profit than those quoted.

Even Better Profits With Bookmaker Access

Whilst ticking all the boxes when it comes to making a profit at Betfair SP, those of you with access to bookmaker accounts, might also be able to increase profits further.

During an 8 month period of intensive tracking, we noted the best odds available with a reputable bookmaker, both 15 and 60 minutes after All Weather Profits put forward their tips.

The upshot of this research is that if taking a bookmaker price within 15 minutes of the tip being advised, we noted an increase in ROI of 10.1% compared to Betfair SP. Even if waiting 60 minutes, the increase was 3.5%

Here is what we found during our period of odds tracking:

allweatherodds

Full details on this odds tracking and how you can make greater profits using bookmakers can be found in SBC Issue 96.

How To Follow For £1 For 30 Days

In a special new deal, all Secret Betting Club members can now sample the All Weather Profits for 30 days for just £1.

If after those 30 days you enjoy what their service has to offer, you can also save an ongoing 50% discount on the cost of membership for as long as you stay with them. So instead of paying £14.95 per month, you will stump up just £7.47 per month.

Over the course of a full year with All Weather Profits, this would ensure a saving of £89.64 – more than the cost of a Gold Secret Betting Club Membership!

This special saving is ONLY available to you as a Secret Betting Club subscriber as part of the unique ‘Tipster Discounts‘ we negotiate on our members behalf.

Due to the way SBC is funded by member subscriptions – we are able to negotiate these unique deals on our members behalf and pass 100% of the savings onto them. Helping line their pockets, not ours!

Member Experience: How SBC Has Helped My Betting | Billy McPherson

To best illustrate how a Secret Betting Club membership can help improve your betting, I have been conducting a series of interviews with real-life SBC subscribers on the difference our service has made to them.

The latest in this series comes from Billy McPherson, who has been an SBC member since 2011, during which time he has made over $1 million dollars – a quarter of which he attributes directly to tipsters we have recommended.

Here, without editing are Billy’s exact answers on exactly how SBC has helped his betting. (Look out for a more detailed interview coming with Billy in a future SBC Magazine!)

What’s your name?

Billy McPherson

When did you join the Secret Betting Club?

I joined SBC in 2011.

What sports do you bet on?

I bet on the following sports : NFL, College Football, NBA, College Basketball, Baseball, NHL Ice Hockey, Aussie Rules Football, NRL (Australian Rugby League), Golf, Tennis, Football

How many tipsters do you follow?

I have an extensive sports portfolio consisting currently of 22 tipsters

Why did you join the Secret Betting Club?

The main reason I joined SBC was because I was searching for one or two good football (soccer) tipsters as this had also been a weakness in my portfolio. After extensive research, and paper trading a number of services until I could personally see the consistency of results and profitability, I added a number of the services of the SBC site to my portfolio. Not all of these however are still in my portfolio, as they simply do not fit my criteria. I currently am using 7 football tipsters, 5 of which are from the SBC stable.

How has the Secret Betting Club helped you?

SBC has been extremely helpful to me to find a number of highly profitable tipsters, many of which I would never have found myself. I am currently using half a dozen tipsters from the SBC website.

What do you like most about the Secret Betting Club service?

I enjoy reading the in depth reviews, as there are many aspects which make a successful tipster. I tend to look for a minimum of 5% ROI and I have made some adjustments to the selections they provide to meet my own criteria to try and increase profit levels and reduce potential drawdowns, such as minimum price levels, value percentage bets etc….

How much have you made betting since you joined the Secret Betting Club?

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

What are your betting plans for the future?

I evaluate all services not only annually but over a period of 5 years, and I do not see any major changes in my betting plans for the next few years. My betting turnover averages over $5 million per year, and since I joined SBC in 2011 profits have been significantly higher due to recommendations of successful football betting tipsters being in my portfolio now.

What would you say to anyone considering a Secret Betting Club membership?

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.

How To Cope When Your Bets Lose | Handling Losing Runs

In my email last week, I touched upon the pain of losing bets, a topic that seems to have spoken to many of you judged by my mailbox over the last 7 days.

Most betting sites or tipsters won’t tackle this subject (for obvious reasons) yet it seems plenty of you are looking for answers on this subject.

Whether it be learning how to stay on track during a losing run, dealing with how losing bets can affect your mood or simply a desire to help you cope better during times of betting adversity – I hope my email today can help provide some assistance.

When it comes to handing losing, it is all part of what I term the ‘battle of the betting mind’

And it is this ‘battle’ that I have seen make the difference between success and failure for many a punter.

Yes, you might be following a profitable tipster, but if I gave 25 random people access to the same tipster and the same setup, I would likely get 25 different sets of results.

The profit and loss for each of the 25 will vary depending on whether they followed the tipster properly in terms of placing every bet, staking consistently, taking the right odds with the right bookmaker and of course how they handle losing bets…

In 2016, I made GBP 38,000 on horse racing “…

Although I’ve changed some of the tipsters I follow, there’s a core group whom I rely on. In 2016, I managed to make GBP 38,000 on horse racing.”    
As written by ‘K’ – An SBC member for several years

How To Handle Losing Bets – 5 Tips

Fully aware of the challenges many punters face during this ‘battle of the betting mind’, I commissioned a special 54-page Betting Psychology Report, entitled How to get the Betting X-Factor to tackle it in greater detail.

Authored by betting psychology expert, Jeff Smith, his report serves to unravel what lies behind successful sports betting and ultimately help you adopt the mindset of a professional gambler.

Because after all, finding a good tipster is the easiest part (many of our Hall of Fame tipsters tick all the right boxes) but adopting the right mindset requires expert guidance.

For example, one section is dedicated to how ‘thinking in probabilities’ can really help us cope with losing bets and puts forward 5 tips to improve our betting mind.

I have summarised them as follows:

  1. Always believe that anything can happen: Never bet your house on something because you believe something is guaranteed – Who would have thought that New England Patriots would win the Superbowl when 28-3 down!
  2. Understand that you don’t need to know what is going to happen next in order to make money: You take a position on something uncertain like the result of football match, but you can’t control the outcome.
  3. Keep in mind that there is a random distribution between wins and losses for any given set of variables that define an edge. Even a coin flipped 10 times could come up heads every time!
  4. Remember an edge is nothing more than an indication of a higher probability of one thing over another. Just because you backed a horse at 6/1 when it should be 4/1 doesn’t mean it will win! It’s still a 4/1 shot. It will win 1 in every 4 races on average.
  5. Finally, accept that every moment in betting is unique. You’re never ‘due a winner’ and just because you nailed your football bets last weekend doesn’t mean you do it again this weekend. If you backed Man Utd to win last week, it will have no bearing on whether your next bet on Man Utd will win. They are 2 completely separate events.

Mindset of a Pro Gambler

4 Step Success Formula

Inside the report, Jeff also puts forward his own simple 4-step success formula when betting, which he outlines as follows:

Strategy

Broken down into each part it makes perfect sense.

Get the winning strategy, stake correctly, stick to your budget and as long as YOU can handle the ups and downs of betting, then you will enjoy positive results.

Here is how the Secret Betting Club is setup to help you do exactly this:

  1. Strategy: We track 55+ of the best tipsters and constantly review new ones to put forward the best experts for you to follow. Finding the right tipster is the easy part!
  2. Money Management: Not only do we reveal the best tipsters, we also show you how to follow them correctly with our betting bank recommendations. Discover how much you can safely stake on each tipster to maximise profits and minimise risk.
  3. Capital: We all have different betting budgets, but we can help you whatever your starting point – whether it be following free tipsters (such as the 4 supplied to you as an SBC member) or those that charge a little more. The key point is that any tipster you do follow offers value for money.
  4. You: The final ingredient is how you pull it all together and win the battle of the betting mind. Reports like the Betting X-Factor by Jeff or our Pro Gambler Blueprint will help you on this front.

Member Experience: How SBC Has Helped My Betting | K

To best illustrate how a Secret Betting Club membership can help improve your betting, I have been conducting a series of interviews with real-life SBC subscribers on the difference our service has made to them.

The latest in this series comes from SBC member, K, who although happy to share his experience with you all, was also keen to protect his identify from snooping bookmakers. Hence the fact we are just using his first initial!

Here is what K had to say (as ever, this is all his own words on the matter!)

What’s your name?

K

When did you join the Secret Betting Club?

I joined several years ago, let my subscription lapse at one point because life was too busy, then resubscribed a couple of years ago and have been a subscriber ever since.

What sports do you bet on?

Predominantly horse racing. For a while, I tried soccer (without success) and American sports, following one of the tipsters on SBC (who is no longer a promoted tipster). American sports became a big loser for me over time as I started chasing losses and following tipsters on twitter. More about this later. So, no more American sports – they seem like a lottery. On the other hand, horse racing is profitable. I have just started betting on tennis again and have developed my own mathematical model to help me. I also bet lightly on golf.

How many tipsters do you follow?

This varies from time to time. Currently, I’m following eleven tipsters. That may seem like a lot, but I’ve chosen carefully. Five are directly from SBC (one of them is free). They are all excellent and have proven long-term profitability. Four more are subscription tipsters (one is for Australian racing and one is for golf) and two others are free tipsters. I also subscribe to one set of ratings for which highlighted races are profitable, and follow another free set of ratings with a system of my own. Overall, it’s a heavy workload, but my timezone and work patterns allow me to manage this. I’m fairly ruthless in cancelling a subscription if it isn’t working out, even if long-term proofed results show a tipster is profitable, because it might be that I’m missing the prices too often

Why did you join the Secret Betting Club?

To find profitable tipsters and to read the guides available for SBC members on profitable betting. Before SBC, I’d followed various other systems and ratings, some successfully, but mostly unsuccessfully. SBC helps steer punters towards profitable and reliable tipsters. It’s great that SBC is independent too.

How has the Secret Betting Club helped you?

There are useful articles on, for example, what to do if different tipsters make the same selections and how that impacts results. These articles stimulate thinking on similar topics, e.g. what to do if you have several tipped selections in the same race (an issue I have daily). 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.

What do you like most about the Secret Betting Club service?

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.

How much have you made betting since you joined the Secret Betting Club?

This is a multi-part answer. In the early days, I made moderate profits. 2015, though, was a complete disaster for various reasons, but mainly because I became obsessed with betting on soccer and American sports. One SBC tipster on basketball cost me a lot. I started following tipsters on twitter (not recommended, by the way) and made the problem worse. I had health issues, and maybe I was trying too hard. Certainly, I lacked discipline. In a few months, I lost a five-figure amount.I’d never done that before.

It was time to pull back, rethink, develop new strategies. By late 2015, I was ready. I came up with my set of rules above. I followed the SBC tipsters I knew I could rely on, and carefully evaluated others using Archie scores and other measures. Although I’ve changed some of the tipsters I follow, there’s a core group whom I rely on, as explained above. In 2016, I managed to make GBP 38,000 on horse racing. That recouped most of what I’d lost when betting crazily on American sports.

I don’t expect 2017 to be as good, but I’d hope to make at least half that amount. It’s been at a cost to my accounts, though. I’d already been restricted to pennies at Bet365 when my balance there hit GBP 10,000, and at Betfair Sportsbook. Last year, I opened accounts at Bet Victor (closed almost immediately), Coral (maximum bet now 0.0), Ladbrokes (heavily restricted), and RaceBets (banned from taking fixed odds after three bets). I’m currently using three bookmakers, all who have lightly restricted me.

My methods wouldn’t suit everyone. I place a lot of bets, sometimes with three or more horses in a race, and bet in most races each day. It’s a heavy workload. But I’ll keep disciplined and I’ll keep doing it while it pays off.

What are your betting plans for the future?

Firstly, no more American sports. Ever. I keep a mental blacklist of tipsters and sports to avoid. I need all my discipline to keep to it (having said that, I’ve broken my own rules already this year, and paid for it). The important things I’ve decided for the future are:

1. Stay disciplined. Keep to the plan, because it’s working.
2. Don’t start following any other tipsters without good proof of their results (or SBC recommendation).
3. Drop any tipster from whom I’m showing a loss before it becomes significant (maybe I’m not getting the best prices).
4. Analyse tennis betting and evaluate my mathematical model.

Stop Losing With These 5 HIGH Strike-Rate Tipsters

BET LOST

2 small words that strike fear into the heart of many a punter.

Yet for all of us aspiring to make a profit betting, dealing with losing bets is something we must face up to.

After all, the chances are that most bets you place will actually lose.

Coupled with the accepted wisdom that the pain felt from a losing bet is at least twice as strong as the joy gained from a winning bet…It all adds up to a far from pleasant experience.

And in my experience running the Secret Betting Club over the years, not being setup correctly to handle losing runs is one of the major reasons punters fail at betting.

So what should you do to avoid being yet another losing punter statistic?

AND what tipsters should you consider following to make your betting journey that much easier!?

stop-losing

How Risky A Punter Are You?

First, it is about knowing what type of punter you are and how much ‘risk’ you can take from your betting.

Put another way – exactly how much of a rollercoaster ride are you willing to experience when betting?

For example, some punters like to follow tipsters putting up bets at big prices to win. 33/1, 20/1, 16/1 shots etc…

The downside to this kind of strategy comes when you consider the vast majority of such tips are going to lose (sometimes very frustratingly!). Yet when they do win, it all pays off! A 33/1 winner will easily wipe out a 20 tip losing streak and leave you with plenty of profit.

Yet for many punters, especially those of you risk-averse, suffering a run of 20 losers on the bounce is a bit too much to bear. There is nothing wrong with you if you fall into this category – you simply need to choose a different type of tipster.

Instead you should look for a higher-strike rate tipster – one who if not winning more than they lose, will still regularly enough to keeping your losing runs short and manageable.

Yet, understanding the type of tipster you need is one thing, finding them another.

Which is where SBC can help as we currently proof, review and report back on 5 different tipsters all of whom fit this criteria.

Let me showcase who they are and how they can help you.

5 High-Strike Rate Profitable Tipsters To Follow

1. Short Odds Football Tipster (47.5% Strike-Rate)

Featured in the 2017 Best Tipster Guide, this specialist football tipster has really impressed us with their consistency and most of all profits.

Since 2010, their winning strategy has hit a 47.5% strike-rate of success by focusing on tips with average odds of 2.43/1. Achieving a 13.6% ROI along the way.

Any losing runs have been short and sharp, making it a perfect option for those of you looking for an easy-to-follow and stable expert.

Best of all if using our recommended Compound Staking approach (as detailed in the 2017 Best Tipster Guide), you can drastically improve your profits by making your money work harder for you.

“£35,310 Profit In 23 Months”……

Following a fantastic start to 2017, so far I am up £35,210 profit in 23 months (since joining the Secret Betting Club) Thanks guys!!! SBC was undoubtedly the biggest single factor in setting me up for success”    Clive Jones. SBC member since 2015

2. Short Odds Racing Tipster (34.72% Strike-Rate) 

Some horse racing ‘experts’ will have you believe it’s impossible to make money backing favourites.

We know this is a nonsense due to the success of tipsters like our 2nd expert who has made a habit of profiting from backing horses at short odds (usually 3/1 and below).

Hitting a strike-rate of 34.72% long-term, he has proved his success over the last 3 years by making 112 points profit at a ROI of 11.3% backing at such short odds. All from 993 bets – proving this is no fluke!

Best of all, this equates to Betting Bank Growth of 250% in those 3 years alone. And who said backing favourites can’t be profitable?

3. Asian Handicap Football Tipster (53.52% Strike-Rate)

One very popular style of punting (and not just because it normally hits a high strike-rate) comes in the form of ‘Asian Handicap’ football betting.

It’s not rare to see bookmakers trade to tiny margins such as just 2% in these markets, which opens up the opportunity for shrewd punters to take advantage (If you are not familiar with Asian Handicaps, I urge you to check them out – they are really very easy to follow!)

Our very own in-house SBC Asian Handicap service is called AH Edge and it has thrived this season hitting a very high strike-rate of 53.52%, and at average odds of 2.18/1

From 301 tips this season alone, AH Edge has made a profit of 29 points at a ROI of 9.63% and so is ticking all  the right boxes. Profitable and at a high strike-rate with more than 1 in every 2 bets winning.

4. NBA Tipster (56.9% Strike-Rate)

Another very favourable betting market for punters can be found when betting on US Sports such as NBA (Basketball), where huge sums of money are traded at low margins.

One such NBA Tipster we have tracked for several years now has a tried and trusted strategy for maximising profits from these markets – again working to a high strike-rate.

During the current NBA season, his strategy has hit a 56.9% strike-rate at average odds of 1.94/1 to ensure a profit of 60 points at 9.6% Return on Investment so far.

5. Very Short Odds Football Tipster (79.38% Strike-Rate)

The 5th and final tipster has a very unique betting strategy – focusing in on very short priced favourites predominantly on football.

In 2016 alone, he hit a 79.38% strike-rate of winning bets. Almost 4 out of every 5 tips advised went onto win.

Although his average odds for each tip advised is quite low at around 1.29 – the high strike-rate more than ensured he made a clear profit.

I know some of you might think “Hey, anyone can pick short-priced tips” – the reality is you can’t, because if you could, you would be doing it and making a profit from it.

Best of all, this tipster thrives when it comes to what we term Return on Capital as to our fairly cautious banking suggestions, he would have grown your bank by 72.3% in just 2016 alone.

Handling Losing Is A Huge Part Of Winning

The topic of losing is not one many betting sites are willing to discuss, yet for me it’s an essential part of betting day-in, day-out. Far too often how you handle losing can be the difference between success and failure.

If you are following the wrong tipsters, staking the wrong amount or simply not using a sensible betting bank, losing runs can and will bite you on the backside.

If you are interested in the 5 tipsters I list above, all of them bar AH Edge can be found in the regular Tipster Profit Reports we publish on behalf of members. We regularly feedback on their ongoing profit/loss in each Tipster Profit Report to keep you on top of who is in form and who to follow with your money.
