SBC Guide: How To Improve Your Profits With Betting Banks

One of the simplest, yet most important things you can do when following a tipster, system or even your own betting – is to setup the right betting bank.

And whilst betting banks might not be the ‘sexiest’ topic in the world, getting them setup right can make a massive difference to your betting bottom-line.

In today’s email I am going to show you just how using the real-life example of the SBC Hall of Fame tipster that turned £2000 into £6,278.80 (after fees) using a betting bank.

(Best of all – even with a £500 betting bank, you will have made a profit of over £1200 in the past 12 months, so you don’t need large sums to get going!)

Betting banks are also hugely important as I have seen too many people lose money they shouldn’t have, simply because they didn’t set one up.

And the daft thing is – they are so easy to understand and implement, that once you start working to a simple betting bank, you won’t look back! It will become your default thing to do whenever you follow a new tipster, system or method.

After all anything that can help minimise losers and enhance winners has to be a good thing right?

What Are Betting Banks?

Firstly then, a short guide to what betting banks are and how they work from the point of view of following a tipster service (like the many we recommend here at SBC).

Simply put, a betting bank is a set amount of money that you put aside for each tipster that you follow so as to make you the most effective return. I.e. the biggest bang for your buck!

For each tipster that you follow, you should have a separate and designated betting bank.

A good betting bank will:

  • Protect you from losses caused by inevitable losing runs.
  • Stop you from going bust!
  • Keep your staking nice and consistent.
  • Help to maximize effectively how much profit you make during the good times.
  • Help you keep a track on how much you are making overall!

The good news is that setting up a betting bank is extremely simple and here at the Secret Betting Club we provide advice on doing just that for each tipster we review and report back upon.

But before I talk more on that, first here is how to set up a betting bank…

How To Setup A Betting Bank

Betting Banks can be split up into two distinct types as follows:

1. Points Betting Bank (PBB)
2. Financial Betting Bank (PBB)

1. Points Betting Bank

Most tipsters will advise staking in terms of ‘points’. This generally varies from 1 point up to 10 points.

A Points Betting Bank will then tell you how much to stake in real £ (or euros, dollars – whatever your chosen currency) on each tip.

E.g. If you have £1000 and follow a tipster using a 50-point betting bank, 1 point would equal £20. More on how to make this calculation later.

Points Betting Bank: Rule of thumb

For each tipster we monitor here at SBC, we calculate the optimal amount of points you need to assign into a betting bank.

This protects you from losing runs, enhances winning runs, and keeps staking consistent over time.

Each tipster stakes differently so this Points Betting Bank (PBB) is optimised for each individual service. This allows you to stake efficiently with the confidence that your Financial Betting Bank will not go bust.

The PBB for each tipster should at the very least take into account the historical worst losing run for that service. A general rule of thumb is to double the previous longest losing run, so that should such a poor run happen again in the future, then no more than at worst 50% of any betting bank should be lost.

To generate the Secret Betting Club’s own betting bank recommendations, we actually use a special in-house ‘betting bank simulator’ which comes up with a highly tuned figure for optimal returns. So as a member, you know we have your bank and back covered!

2. Financial Betting Bank

Of course the amount of money you can actually make from following a tipster depends on the real-life Financial Betting Bank (FBB) you can apply to it.

This refers to the amount of money you set aside to follow a service, when considering the Points Betting Bank. This FBB amount is related to the PBB as we will go on to demonstrate in the example below.

This FBB amount should be an amount of money you feel comfortable risking in following a particular tipster.

This should be a lump sum of money you have available for investment and should be separate to funds needed for living expenses

Real Betting Bank Example – Top Racing Tips

To show how the PBB and FBB come together, let me use a real life example as taken from a recent Tipster Profit Report.

This example tipster is very profitable indeed, although as its identify is reserved for SBC members only, for the purposes of this email, l will call them ‘Top Racing Tips’.

Our points betting bank recommendation for Top Racing Tips is 100 points.

This figure takes into account historical losing runs, and the current method of staking that Top Racing Tips investments utilises.

If following Top Racing Tips over the past 12 months this service would have made you 336.44 points profit to their advised staking.

Let’s say we decide to follow Top Racing Tips with a FBB of £2,000 in real money.

  1. We then divide the FBB by the PBB to get our staking per point.
  2. 2000/100 = £20. Therefore £20 is our stake per point.
  3. As this tipster made 336.44 points over the past year, we multiply that by your stake of £20 over the past year.

That brings an actual real world profit of £6,728.80

This particular tipster charges £135 per quarter or £450 for annual membership so even if deducting a full year’s subscription, you still would end up nicely in profit.

After fees, a £2000 betting bank over these 12 months would have made you a clear profit of £6,278.80

Profit Figures To Smaller Banks

Of course, you don’t need £2000 to follow this tipster.

You can make a tremendous profit with much lower financial betting banks as follows:

  • £500 bank = £5 per point. Annual profit of £1682.20 (before tipster subscription fees – we recommend the £450 lifetime membership option)
  • £750 bank = £7.50 per point. Annual profit of £2,523.00 (before tipster fees)
  • £1500 bank = £15 per point. Annual profit of ££5,046.60 (before tipster fees)

All of which just goes to show you don’t need to break the bank to get started betting for profit.

After all, there is absolutely no harm in starting small with your betting and developing it as a platform for long-term success.

You should never feel pressurised to instantly start making thousands of pounds in your first few months. Instead, simply allow the returns to gradually evolve over time.

Many of the tipsters we recommend have been making their members money for several years, so there is no rush to make large sums quickly.

Winning Tipster Puts Up Bet, Slashes Odds (Or Do They??)

One of the biggest issues affecting us punters these days is without a doubt – getting our bets on and obtaining good value odds on the bets we strike.

With bookies sensitive to ‘shrewd money’ especially in markets like horse racing, sometimes obtaining a good price on the bet we want can be a real battle.

Tipster puts up bet, bookie slashes odds…

…or so it goes, especially for some of the most popular tipsters such as Hugh Taylor or Pricewise, where the prices they tip at (and all too often settle at) disappear in a matter of seconds.

Yet all is not lost as with the right data and experts to guide you – it is possible to find genuinely, winning tipsters that quote realistically achievable odds.

Let me explain how using a recent example of a profitable tipster we examined here at SBC.

Intensive Odds Tracking For Each Tipster

Mindful of the issue of odds movement, for each tipster we review here at SBC, we hire a specialist odds checker who tracks and records the odds available to see just how realistic they are.

This odds tracking helps to uncover:

  • How long the odds quoted remain available for;
  • How realistic the quoted odds actually are and if you can achieve them in practice;
  • How the odds move after set time periods (e.g. for a racing tipster – after 15, 30 & 60 minutes, at 10.30am plus Betfair SP);
  • Which bookmakers are being quoted and used.

Once you have this data, it allows you to make some very informed decisions on whether the odds quoted by a tipster are realistic or the biggest work of fiction since Harry Potter!

Recent Tipster Review Example

To illustrate how this all works, here is an example from one recent tipster review we published.

The review itself focused on a very profitable racing tipster, who since 2012 had advised 2599 bets and made a 15.4% Return on Investment (ROI).

Their strategy was to advise bets in big feature races only, either the big Saturday Meetings or large Festivals like Glorious Goodwood or Royal Ascot. As these betting markets take a lot of money, most tips would be advised late in the evening or early in the morning.

For this particular odds tracking task, our in-house staff member monitored the odds for every tip advised over a 6 week period.

Only quoting the best odds if available with a small panel of bookmakers including: Bet365, BetVictor, BlackType, Betfair Sportsbook, Coral, Ladbrokes, Paddy Power, Skybet, Tote and William Hill.

During this 6-week period, our odds tracker monitored 76 bets in total and noted the following for each tip given:

  • The advised odds by the tipster;
  • The best odds available on receipt of tip email;
  • The best odds 15 minutes after receipt;
  • The best odds at 8.00am, 
  • The best odds at 10.30am 
  • The performance at SP

And here is what he found, with the drop between the advised odds and each other category illustrated by the Estimated ROI difference.
WW131017_01

Marginal Odds Movement – Especially Before 8am

Breaking down this table – we noted straight away that there was very little difference in the odds available both immediately and after 15 minutes had elapsed with just a -0.2% and -0.6% swing.

Even at 8am, the difference between the advised odds and what you could obtain was -1.6% and at 1030am, whilst the odds had shifted further, the difference was -5.2%

Remember this service has made a 15.4% ROI long-term, so if getting on by 8am in the morning, you would only lose -1.6% ROI at worse. Leaving you with an actual real-life ROI of 13.8%.

If you couldn’t get on until 10.30 am, this 15.4% ROI, would drop to 10.2% ROI. Not ideal certainly, but still allowing you the chance to get on and make a fair profit.

Ultimately, we have to come to expect with any profitable racing tipster that there will be a degree of odds movement over time. The fact that the possible ROI differences within 15 minutes are as small as -0.6% and leaving you with a 14.8% ROI in reality is very good in today’s betting world.

It is also very important to note how likely it is you might obtain better odds if having access to more firms than the 9 we quoted from in our odds tracking exercise. Opening up the potential to even beat the quoted odds performance.

Why The Bookmakers Quoted Also Matters!

It’s also important to understand which bookmakers are quoted when a tip is put forward and our odds tracking exercise allowed us to report on this as well.

Let’s face it, if a tipster is quoting standout odds of 16/1 with a firm such as Boylesports (widely known to be amongst the worst for restrictions) there is next to no chance you will get on if showing a modicum of profit.

Below you can find the detail on those bookmaker firms that this tipster used the most, with Bet365 clearly the most popular and quoted on 42.3% of occasions.

After that, came Paddy Power, Bet Victor and William Hill with a combined 36.3% of all bets, followed by a few bets with the likes of Stan James, Ladbrokes, Betway, Skybet & Coral.

WW131017_02

Love or hate the likes of Bet365, they are not known as the worst culprits when it comes to either restricting accounts or slashing odds – which makes sense given the odds tracking study we ran.

For every tipster review we publish, you can expect to read concerted odds tracking analysis to help you understand just how the odds stack up (or not!)

We don’t just analyse odds movements in our reviews either.  We break down other factors such as yearly performance, monthly performance, performance by odds band, performance by racing code, and performance to Betfair Starting Price to name just a few.

We are able to go into such detail in our reviews due to the unique way we are funded by our members. This allows us to not only report back independently (so no affiliate links) but also to spend hours and hours investigating profitable tipsters.

388 Points Profit & Counting For This Free-To-SBC Racing Tipster

Last month I wrote to you about the outstanding racing tipster The Rooster who was bang in form after picking up winners at 16/1, 6/1 and 4/1 in August (read it here)

Well the good news is that this particular Rooster has plenty more to crow about with yet more winners recently, including Donjuan Triumphant and Syrian Pearl both obliging at 10/1 in the past 7 days.

Donjuan Triumphant was the Rooster’s tip for the rescheduled Gold Cup at Haydock last Saturday, whilst Syrian Pearl did the business over at Nottingham on Wednesday. Results that are especially impressive when you consider The Rooster normally puts up only 5 or so tips every week, so is very selective in his approach.

The reason I am telling you about this?

Simple – its because all of The Rooster’s advice is exclusively available FREE to you as a Secret Betting Club member. Once inside our service you can find links to sign-up to receive his tips via email OR through access to our tipping forum.

Its safe to say The Rooster is fast becoming a must-have service for many SBC members already and I don’t want you to miss out…

The Rooster’s Long-Term Profits

Whilst we all enjoy backing winners, our own appreciation of The Rooster comes from the long-term profits he has made since 2014.

Here is his full breakdown of stats since then, which help to showcase his absolute quality:

2014: 262 bets, 298 points staked, +131 points profit. 43.96% ROI
2015: 332 bets, 406 points staked, +103 points profit. 25.37% ROI
2016: 325 bets, 391 points staked, +83.5 points profit. 53.37% ROI
2017: 241 bets, 274 points staked, +71 points profit. 25.9% ROI

TOTAL: 1,160 bets, 1,369 points staked, +388.5 points profit. 28.37% ROI

If you had staked a simple £10 on each and every point advised, here is what you would have made:

2014: £1310 profit
2015: £1030 profit
2016: £835 profit
2017: £710 points profit.

TOTAL: £3885 profit.

This is one Rooster with results to crow about!
