There are literally thousands of Tipsters or “Tipping Services” available online, encompassing just about every sport imaginable. Some tips are free, and others come as part of a paid subscription service.

“So who’s the best Tipster?”, you ask.

There’s no straightforward answer to that — but I can certainly point you in the right direction. Here’s everything you need to know in order to dodge scams, avoid disappointment, and find a legitimate Tipping Service.

 

Free, or Subscription Tipsters?

I used to believe that there was no hope in finding any Tipster which gives you a genuine advantage — whether you’ve paid for a service or not. But that conclusion was drawn from negative experiences using subscription Tipster services, during a period where the (free) Twitter Tipsters ran riot.

I’ve seen slow improvements to the Tipster market, and gambling industry in general, over the last couple of years. Online regulations are tightening: it seems I’m not the only one who recognises that the industry needed cleaning up!

There’s now several solid Tipping Services emerging, offering far more transparency than ever before.


Free Tipster Services

You’re spoilt for choice. There’s free Tipsters everywhere — on blogs, social media, forums, the radio, and so on.

Just keep in mind that free Tipping Services tend to be less audited than many of the paid options. You need to assess the strategy used, and motives behind them, on an individual basis.


Warning: Many free Tipsters give out selections based on the slightest hunch. They’ll frequently present images of winnings, and play down losses. They’ll attempt to entice players to subscribe to “premium tips” or to bet at whatever Bookmaker offers them the best incentive. 


I recommend using the free tips provided by an established platform — such as those I’m about to recommend in the next section.

Alternatively, you might like to try the BetBull app. It’s a social betting platform which connects punters to tons of Tipsters, enabling them to copy their bets. To learn more read my full BetBull review.


Subscription Tipster Services

There’s three standout paid Tipping Services that I’ve identified as giving you the very best chance of profiting. They’re essentially ‘hubs’ which connect punters to a vast array of Tipsters for almost any sport.

The role of these subscription Tipster sites is to audit third party Tipsters, to scrutinise their selections, and present their betting records with utmost transparency. This shields bettors from common scams.

So here’s my shortlist of top Tipping Services…

 

1. Tipstrr

Tipstrr was created in 2014 to provide an open platform for Tipsters. It connects Tipsters with sports bettors looking to improve their long term profitability.

The focus of Tipstrr is transparency, and keeping open and accurate records for all to see. The company and it’s directors concur with my views that the overall issue with Tipping Services is trust. To combat this, Tipstrr have developed advanced tools to track a Tipster’s performance using odds data coming directly from the Bookies.

What differentiates Tipstrr from other platforms is that their proofing process is fully automated. The prices are checked against the market by computers; so there’s very little room for error. This is a major feat.

Anyone can become a tipster on Tipstrr. Simply create a portfolio and start tracking your bets. The portfolio can be private (to track your own betting performance), or available to others to follow for free or on a subscription basis.


Using Tipstrr

Simply select your sport from the main menu to view a variety of Tipsters. You can filter by ‘on form”, ‘established’, or ‘free’.

Here’s a football Tipster I found on Tipstrr:


General stats are listed at the top of the Tipster’s profile.

This particular tipster has a realistic ROI of 9.8%. That’s a good sign. I don’t buy into astronomical ROI’s like 35%. Whenever I see those kinds of stats, I immediately want to know how many bets were placed (because that performance is not achievable long-term in today’s sports betting markets).

You can dig deep into all of the Tipster’s stats from the same page, finding a neat breakdown of the results for each sports (and leagues), markets, bookmakers used, odds ranges, publish time, time before event, and strike rates. It’s an impressive system that’s intuitive, and loaded with useful insights.


The same Football Tipster has achieved the following results (484 bets).

A good track record so far. And there’s plenty of other Tipsters on the platform with promising statistics like this.

To save you some time, I’ve put together a list of:


Tipstrr Pricing

Prices vary for each Tipster, and generally range between £0-30 per month.

The good news is that the majority of paid Tipsters offer some form of trial period, or heavy discount to new customers. The duration of the promotion varies from days to weeks.

Shop around, and take advantage of trial periods where you can.

2. Smart Betting Club

Launched in 2006, Smart Betting Club (formerly known as ‘Secret Betting Club’), is an independent and honest reviewer and assessor of tipster services, systems and strategies. Their service is primarily aimed at punters seeking legitimate proofing/information on tipsters.

Once you become a member of Smart Betting Club you’re ready to access all of their resources including the Tipster Ratings Index, PDF magazines (published every other month), detailed Tipster Profit Reports, free tipsters, and a tipster savings section.

SBC doesn’t have a particularly modern or dynamic site, but instead focuses on maintaining a ‘Hall of Fame’ of their best tipsters and provides exceptionally detailed reports on each of them. These reports are far more comprehensive than any others I’ve seen. In fact, SBC is one of the only tipster proofing services that manually analyses how the available odds differed from those advised, and underlines the impact this had on the profit.

Aside from their detailed reports, perhaps the most unique aspect of Smart Betting Club is their level of independence. They’re not paid by referring bettors to tipsters featured on their site. They do not use affiliate links in any of their reviews. In fact, they only earn from subscriptions to their members area.

The tipster referral revenue SBC misses out on is passed onto their members in the form of exclusive savings on major tipsters.


Using Smart Betting Club

The SBC Publications section features PDF ‘magazines’, where you can read the latest tipster service reviews, specialist strategies, betting guides and interviews.

Every other month SBC produces their latest Tipster Profit Report in a similar PDF format. I must emphasise how incredibly detailed these reports are (some are over 11 pages long!).

The staff at SBC grade tipsters, and even strike off those who are no longer profitable. It’s one of the only places I’ve seen that doesn’t assume that a once profitable (but no longer) tipster service is destined turn it all around and go back to former glory days.

Smart Betting Club Pricing

To obtain the maximum value from SBC I recommend opting for the £79.99 + VAT annual subscription.

Bare in mind that many of the tipster savings are significant enough to cover this fee.

Furthermore, SBC offers a 90-day quibble-free money back guarantee if you’re dissatisfied with your purchase.

3. Betting Gods

Betting Gods is another registered Tipster company, also established in 2014. It’s now very well recognised, and has even sponsored a number of different races and courses. The aim of the platform is to bring together different tipsters from various sports under a single site.

Betting Gods has excellent reviews on third party sites such as Trust Pilot — which is the benchmark to many good, reliable online services. Furthermore, it comes with a ClickBank guarantee. So If you believe that you’ve been mis-sold something by Betting Gods, then there is a 2 month period to claim a refund. Read more on this guarantee here.

Customer service is a strong point of Betting Gods. This is made evident by public interactions from their staff, across many unaffiliated betting sites and blogs. The owner of Betting Gods, Darren Moore, has openly called for the regulation of Tipster services to prevent punters being scammed. He imposes a strict verification process on all Tipsters featured on his network.

Betting Gods strives for transparency, and encourages Tipsters to explain their selections. This way subscribers are able to learn a bit more about the sport, and perhaps even approach their betting from a different angle going forward.


Using Betting Gods

Betting Gods has a very bold and bright interface. You can filter by whatever sport interests you most.

You’ll note that there aren’t quite as many Tipsters on Betting Gods as some other platforms. This is because all Tipsters have to go through a 16-week vetting process before they go public on the network. It’s a good thing!

Note: some tipsters on Betting Gods have a much larger and more extensive track record than others. Always do your research.


The Betting Gods Greyhound Tipster has achieved the following.

The Tipster ‘profile page’ concept is similar to that of Tipstrr’s (it’s a little more basic, though).

The above chart isn’t really that informative. However, you can bring up the full breakdown of bets in a Google sheet, as well. This is great for checking individual bets yourself, and it provides an extra level of transparency you don’t get from other platforms.


Betting Gods Pricing

Betting Gods offers £1 for a full 30 day free trial. You don’t need to place real bets, either. I highly recommend giving it a go. There’s absolutely nothing to lose (except a pound!).

After the trial, prices vary for each Tipster, and generally range between £0-30 per month. It’s consistent with Tipstrr in that department.

For more information, here’s my comprehensive review of the Betting Gods Tipster Network.

 

Why Most Other Tipsters Will Let You Down

Before you begin enjoying one (or more) of my recommended Tipping sites, it’s important to recognise why the majority of sports Tipping services have disappointed punters for decades.

Here they are…


1. No Edge, No Profit.

Most Tipsters don’t give punters an advantage. In other words, they don’t provide value or ‘edge’, and their selection method is worthless.

This same problem echos across all areas of gambling; not just in sports Tipping. The vast majority of betting systems, strategies, selection models, and staking plans — for both sports and Casino — ultimately fail in the long-run because they don’t yield any positive long-term advantage.

Betting on value is essential. Without it, there’s no profit. Yet the concept is still so understated.


The average gambler still believes that picking a winner means they made the right bet. But in fact, the “right bet” is any selection(s) which had the odds in your favour. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose — but value conquers all in the long-run.


Sure, you can hit winning streaks without having any positive value in your bets. Your Tipster could provide you with 10 consecutive winning selections without ever considering their value. However, that’s merely a phenomenon commonly known as… luck!

Choose a Tipster who understands the importance of value betting.


2. Tipster Scams (They’re Common).

The worst kind of Tipster is one with no intentions of helping you earn. I’m talking about the type of guy who knows damn well that his selections won’t generate any profit, but he dishes them out to unsuspecting punters anyway.

Examples of Tipster scams:

  • % of profits. Some Tipsters work on a “when you win, I win” basis. So they want ‘winners’. To maximise their chances of guessing right on a sports event, they’ll cover as many outcomes as possible. Some customers get one selection, others get something entirely different. It’s the classic Tipster scam.
  • Bookmaker affiliates. Many Tipsters earn commission by recommending that you bet with bookmakers they’re affiliated to, in order to earn a rake-back of player losses. These Tipsters are therefore incentivised to refer losing players: a clear conflict of interest.
  • Misleading numbers. It’s common to find Tipsters that document their betting history using “peak” historical prices. Yes, these prices existed at some point in time — so it looks clean on paper. In practice, however, it’s impossible to obtain those odds on every bet.
  • Outright lies. Other Tipsters haven’t yet worked out the above “peak price” trick. So they just doctor their numbers entirely; often “neglecting” to record hefty losing streaks. It’s like shanking your tee-off in golf and saying “That doesn’t count. It was a practice swing!”.

These kinds of scams can be used in conjunction with one another. They continue to exist because there’s no shortage of punters looking to base their bets around the very flimsiest of evidence.

Learn more about the risks involved in following Tipsters.


Note: not every Tipster is a scammer. I’m just making you aware of the worst case scenarios.


3. Many Tipsters are Naive.

Tipsters aren’t usually mathematicians or stats gurus. So very often their strategies are devised naively — albeit with good intentions.

There’s countless Tipsters out there who genuinely believe they’re onto a winning strategy, and enjoy sharing the love around…. until it ultimately comes crashing down. They’re often gamblers themselves.

Here’s some of the usual mistakes:

  • Believing hot streaks were more than just luck. It’s the Achilles heel: hit a good run and you start thinking you’re onto something groundbreaking. Many Tipsters have a gambler’s mentality, and don’t recognise how results can swing one way or the other (Learn more on betting variance).
  • A small sample size. With a small number of bets you might be in profit. Placing one bet every weekend, for example, might reveal a handsome ROI over half a season of football. But over time the true edge will reveal itself. Many Tipsters don’t see the decline coming.
  • Reading too much into strike rates. A fundamental error in sports betting analysis is to count the percentage of winners you had, and chalk that down as a winning strategy. That’s not how it works. Profitability hinges on how good your odds were in relation to your strike rate.

I highly recommend that you learn more about the potential risks involved in sports tipping by following the links below:

 

Looking For More Tipsters?

Rightly or wrongly, only three Tipping Services made my list. And there’s good reasons for that.

I’m extremely cautious about what services I recommend. Providing you with high quality products, and my honest views on sports betting is the very philosophy of this website. I won’t compromise that in favour of earning more commission from products that I cannot verify.

Tipstrr, Smart Betting Club, and Betting Gods are companies I felt comfortable adding to my site. It’s not to say there aren’t more great Tipsters out there — I just believe those services offer the most in terms of:

  • Transparency (they’re not scams)
  • Variety (lots of sports and markets to bet on)
  • User interface (neat reports, and user-friendly sites for mobile and desktop devices)
  • Reputation (over 4.5/5.0 on TrustPilot).

Please note that prices vary for each individual Tipster on all Tipster Networks. Be sure to subscribe to Tipsters with a solid record, where you estimate you’ll be able to return enough profit to cover your monthly expense.

And lastly, remember that betting on tips carries risk: so start slowly and never bet beyond your means. There’s no guarantee you’ll profit — like with Arbing or Matched Betting.

I was recently asked by Trademate Sports “what is the one thing you’d like to see change in the gambling industry?”. As I started to write my answer, I found myself listing multiple inter-connected problems rather than one thing in particular. Let’s be honest, there’s a lot of room for improvement in the gambling industry.

The way the industry handles problem gambling is undoubtedly an issue, and an obvious conflict of interest. But I have also considered that drinking alcohol, eating too much fast food, smoking (even vaping) and trading on the stock market, like gambling, can be addictive and bad in excess — but are ultimately better to regulate than ban entirely.

In the end, I came to the the conclusion that the bulk of the industry’s problems stem from one thing: lack of transparency. And this overarching problem can only be tackled by governments and gambling regulators; we cannot expect an industry built on greed to improve on it’s own accord.

My original answer was published on the Trademate Blog, but the subject deserved an ‘extended version’. So here it is…

 

The Problem Isn’t The House Edge

It’s no secret that gambling companies have the upper hand. Online Bookmakers earn from their ‘overround’, while Casinos earn from an ‘edge’ (which depends on the specific game or slot being played). This is their advantage and, effectively, their charge for running the service. It’s public knowledge.

In my opinion, the problem isn’t the mathematical advantage gambling vendors have. It’s that so many of them use shady, dishonest, underhanded tactics to further increase that advantage to earn more money. As a result, players are at constant war with online Bookmakers and Casinos, fighting over who owes who what.

While gambling sites must fully protect themselves against fraud and other illicit activities — such as money laundering and promotional abuse — it’s too often used as an excuse for not paying legitimate customers their winnings.

Only the relevant authorities can step in to put a stop to unnecessary disputes and build a more transparent industry.

 

How To Improve The Gambling Industry

Here’s some ideas for what I’d like to see across the board within the gambling industry. None of my suggestions are difficult to implement — but I believe they would make a huge difference.


Upfront Verification

Currently many gambling sites are more than happy to take deposits and accept bets… up until winnings are withdrawn by the player. But if ID checks are there to prevent fraud and verify age, then why are losing bets allowed? Why does that make a player exempt from undergoing verification?

To preserve integrity, ID checks should always be made upfront BEFORE money is deposited into an online betting site. If there’s any discrepancy whatsoever (address, name, IP address, etc), that needs to be investigated prior to any transaction taking place.

It’s important that once a customer has passed verification, vendors would be in breach of their licence for asking for more documentation for a fixed period (six months, for example) unless exceptional circumstances require it. For example, if a money laundering investigation has been granted by the regulator or government. This prevents sites from using customer verification as a payout delaying tactic — which leads me onto my next suggestion.


Strict Payout Times

Regulators should require that vendors consistently meet strict payout deadlines and quotas (e.g. minimum of 99.5% of customer withdrawals processed on time within a calendar month), or face an investigation which may result in their licence being suspended or revoked.


Payout delaying tactics are well-known and common within the gambling industry, so there has to be real consequences for being caught using them. The more authorities punish poor customer service, the higher overall standards will become.


Personally I’d like gambling regulators to publicise up-to-date statistics on their licencees — such as their payout times — in a league table format. Gambling companies need the motivation to provide an excellent customer service, or risk damaging their reputation.

With a ranking system, gambling companies would compete against one another for the top spot. Thus a high rank becomes a badge of honour that can be used for enticing new customers. In theory the best companies will attract the lions share of business; which is precisely the way it ought to be.


Winners Allowed

It seems fitting that in a world where gambling companies have the edge over the vast majority of their players, winners should not be banned.

While gambling sites could argue that too many winning players would run their business into the ground, there are people out there who have completely ruined their lives (and lives of others), through compulsive gambling. There’s no cap on what you can lose online — so it’s not unreasonable to require that profitable bettors are granted, at the very least, a low maximum stake.

After all, gambling companies have agreed to participate in a business that runs the risk of losing money. That agreement should be honoured to the public. Yet it’s somehow normalised that gamblers should not, and cannot, win. That’s got to change.


Bonus Overhaul

Bonuses are abused by advantage players, meaning that legitimate customers are now caught in traps laid by the gambling companies in retaliation. This just about sums up the constant war between players and gambling sites.


Most bonuses are misleading, have ambiguous/contentious terms, and are minus EV (meaning players are expected to LOSE money by taking them). This, sadly, only increases disputes. In any other industry, it wouldn’t be allowed by advertising standards.


Regulators need to consider the negative impact promotions have on the industry, and take aggressive steps towards standardising bonus formats. Ideally gambling sites would agree to follow a bonus template with simplistic terms that cannot be modified or added to. Then, if they refuse to pay customers based on the framework agreed, they lose their rights to use bonuses as a means of enticing new customers in the future.

Standard templates would ensure that gambling sites set mutually beneficial promotions that can barely (if at all) be exploited by advantage players, and equally do not lure unsuspecting customers into losing money. To date, the right middle-ground has never been struck (particularly when it comes to Casino bonuses).


Improved Gambling Education

The UK Gambling Commission have stepped up their efforts in improving the content provided by affiliates. It’s a positive move, especially since many affiliates have historically mislead gamblers with the illusion that they’ll earn big by following their advice, when in fact they want them to lose.

But let’s also bare in mind that gambling companies have long profited from their advertising partners and actively encouraged them to convert customers by any means possible. Gambling companies knew exactly what misleading tactics were being used by their affiliates but did nothing to stop it. In fact, they encouraged, and rewarded them for the results. Some still do.

So rather than deflecting the blame onto third parties, why not require that gambling sites take more responsibility themselves? After all, there’s nothing that’s stopping them from providing educational content. Nothing except motivation, of course…

The bottom line is that Bookies/Casinos do not want to educate their customers. Stating the facts about gambling doesn’t make them look good, nor help them to make more money. So once again, the regulators would need to step in and force all licencees to provide an array of gambling educational resources on their sites. These articles and/or videos could explain exactly why gamblers lose money, and what the likelihood of winning actually is. This goes hand-in-hand with my next point.


Visible Edges

The online gambling industry has somehow evaded the responsibility of fully informing gamblers of what they’re getting themselves into. Just think: in the UK you can’t buy a burger from McDonalds without seeing the specific calorie count listed on the menu board, or purchase a packet of cigarettes without “smoking causes cancer” printed onto the box.

But doesn’t gambling also pose a health risk? Where are the prominent warnings about the losses one could make? In this day and age, players should see the relevant edge clearly presented next to every betting market and Casino game they’re on — not just the token “gamble responsibly” effort.

 

Raise Standards, Not Losses

Sure, some regulators are beginning to implement a few of the above suggestions. But there’s still a very long way to go before the gambling industry achieves real transparency.

Unfortunately the focus of gambling companies is not only increasing the amount of stakes placed through their sites — but on maximising player losses through various unscrupulous means. That’s the injustice and greed gamblers face and, ironically, it can only have a detrimental impact on player retention.


To put it into context, imagine if an online retailer refused to grant you a refund for a broken item. Or sold you a fake item. Or simply kept your money without sending any product to you in the first place. Regular gamblers will understand the parallels.


For most companies, survival and longterm success couldn’t possibly come from deceit; it comes from quality. But until the gambling industry is standardised and cleaned up, it will not follow the same principles that dictates the success of other businesses. It will continue to follow it’s own rules.

For this industry to truly change for the better, there should be no tolerance for underhanded tactics. There should be real consequences for breaking promises. There needs to be utmost transparency right from the moment you deposit until you withdraw winnings — if you’re even lucky enough to do so.

Tipstrr is an automated tipster proofing service, providing access to a large selection of free and paid sports betting tips. Users of the site can find up-to date, highly detailed stats and charts underlining both historic and recent tipster performance levels.

In this review I take a closer look at the Tipstrr platform in order to weigh up the pros and cons of the site, and explain why I’ve decided to recommend it to readers of Punter2Pro.

 

About Tipstrr

Tipstrr was launched in 2014 as an open platform for sports tipsters. It’s designed to appeal to bettors looking to improve their long term profitability.

Like myself, the company and its directors believe that the overall issue with tipster services is trust: there are so many scams and non-profitable sports betting systems, strategies and influencers to sieve through that the small percentage of legitimate services are incredibly hard to find. Thus the focus of Tipstrr is to bring transparency to the tipster market by keeping open and accurate records for all to see.


In a nut shell, Tipstrr sheds light on legitimate tipsters by verifying their advised odds, and continually tracking their performance.


Anyone can sign up to Tipstrr and start publishing sports tips — for free or on a subscription basis. But naturally those with a strong, consistent historical record attract the most followers. For paid services, Tipstrr takes a cut of the subscription fee (so they’re not entirely independent).

Aside from the tipster reports, punters can enjoy some of Tipstrr’s free sports content — including match previews and countdowns of the previous month’s highest earners for each popular sport.


How Tips Are Created

Selections are committed to either a private (for personal bet tracking) or public tipster profile, and are automatically checked by the system upon input. Whenever a bet is entered, Tipstrr:

  • Uses live odds feeds to verify whether the selection is available to place at bookies (vitally important).
  • Sends a notification to subscribers detailing the tip.
  • Automatically incorporates the result of the bet into the tipster’s record. This cannot be modified.

Automated Proofing

One of the major problems with tipster proofing/review sites is that they too often stamp a seal of approval on tipsters based on a relatively meaningless sample of bets. There are obvious weaknesses to this approach, such as:

  • The sample may be too small to determine profitability (especially given that markets can change over time).
  • The sample may not be representative of usual performance.
  • Different parameters are needed to stress test the betting system (for example, different seasons of the year where weather can have an impact).
  • Humans often make mistakes/inconsistencies in handling the data, or allow their own biases to influence analyses.

This is why I don’t review individual tipsters myself: it would be rather pointless.

What differentiates Tipstrr from traditional verification sites is that their proofing process is fully automated and continuous — meaning bettors have a much larger data set at hand. In fact, some established tipster services on Tipstrr have been monitored for several years. This ongoing process gives a clear, detailed view of a tipster’s past, current and — to an extent — future ability to select profitable bets.

Visitors can measure tipster performance on a month-by-month basis, over the last 3 months, 6 months, or since inception. Or alternatively measure by sport, markets, bookmakers, time before event, and so on. It’s impressive how much data is available.


Reduced Risk Of Scams

Have you ever been mislead by a tipster that ‘doctored’ their records in one way or another? Perhaps they cheated by adding in selections after an event settled, or bloated their profits with odds that were unachievable.

The latter practice of “bloating”, as I like to call it, is very common tipster scamming tactic that’s difficult to detect without close inspection. Bloating occurs when a tipster falsifies their profit by passing off ‘peak’ prices as those that were advised to followers.


For instance, the odds for a horse could close at 6.0 before the off having previously peaked at 9.0 earlier that day. If a tipster falsely claims to have got on at peak odds of 9.0 (when he really only got on at 6.5), and the bet wins, then the profit will be exaggerated. Repeatedly lying creates an inflated PnL record.


Tipstrr prevents against bloating and other scams by forcing tipsters to commit bets in real time. This leaves little room for data ‘errors’.

How To Find A Tipster

Users can start shopping for tipsters on Tipstrr without even opening an account. There’s no paywall preventing anyone from browsing through the profit records on the platform. So where should you start?

I recommend browsing tipsters by sport. Searching for tips on specific events is great in theory, but it doesn’t always bring up a wide enough variety of options until close to the event time. That’s one weakness of an otherwise great interface.

In terms of sports available, Tipstrr is geared towards the UK favourites of Football and Horse Racing — so I’d stick to those. Unfortunately, some other sports are lacking on Tipstrr as the platform evidently needs more influence from other sporting disciplines. Nonetheless, there still are some very strong offerings that’ll interest those looking for an honest service above anything else.

Let’s take a look at the horse racing section — Tipstrr’s most prominent sport. If you want free tipsters, you’re best off following the blue hyperlink in the introductory paragraph. What follows after it are some of Tipstrr’s recommended paid services.


Tipstrr Review — Find & Follow Proofed Tipsters


The key to getting the most from the site is to identify tipsters with the steadiest long-term record. I’ll show you how to do that using the filters.


Filter By Sample Size & ROI

Scroll to the bottom of the page to find the search tool. I recommend applying the filters as follows:

  • Tipster type: All
  • Period: All time
  • Min ROI: 5% (respectable for non horse racing)
  • Min tips: 500 (the more the better)

Tipstrr Review — Find & Follow Proofed Tipsters

Keep mind that a large sample size is vital for judging results.


Hit the ‘apply filters’ button. Then click on a service with a steady graph that represents consistency over time. This is much more preferable to an erratic profit graph — even if it shows an obscenely high ROI.

For example, the following service shows too much downtime, and little consistency from the graph preview. Also, the high average odds suggest an unusual method, to say the least!

Tipstrr Review — Find & Follow Proofed Tipsters


Here’s a better example. The graph is very consistent, suggesting the service is constantly active. The stats look sensible. It’s no surprise that SVB Tips is in fact a popular service.

Tipstrr Review — Find & Follow Proofed Tipsters


Study The Stats

You should always delve deeper into a tipster service by clicking ‘view stats’ on the tipster’s profile page. Here’s what to look for:


1. An impressive ‘level stake’ performance

Make an educated guess as to whether a service is likely to perform well in the future. There’s no guarantees it will — but to maximise your chances I recommend ticking the ‘flat stake’ box and checking the performance for:

  • Past 3 months — look for consistency and profitability over recent tips
  • All time — look for a consistent historical performance since the service started out (it’s not all about the here and now).

In the case of SVB Tips the ‘All time’ level stakes graph looks great. Note that this graph always shows the ‘All time’ performance, even if you change the dropdown to another period. The figures below it highlight the month on month performance.


Tipstrr Review — Find & Follow Proofed Tipsters


If you scroll down, you’ll find the breakdown of the profit per sport for ‘All time’.

Tipstrr Review — Find & Follow Proofed Tipsters


Now, if you scroll back up change the dropdown from ‘All time’ to ‘3 months’, the stats will change. Again, recent results here are remain consistent with the overall record. That’s a good sign.

Tipstrr Review — Find & Follow Proofed Tipsters


2. High frequency of bets

You want to make sure you’ll receive enough tips per month. So scroll to the bottom of the page to verify how many selections have been tipped over recent months. In this example case the past three months have delivered 175, 175, and 215 tips respectively. That’s a decent number of bets by most standards. Again, the more the better.


Tipstrr Review — Find & Follow Proofed Tipsters


3. Practical publishing time

Make sure that the service provides selections at a time that’s convenient for you. Refer to the publish time chart for this.

If 8am-12pm is not practical for you to place bets, then this service wouldn’t be suitable.


Tipstrr Review — Find & Follow Proofed Tipsters


4. Reasonable subscription cost

You can check the cost for a service on the ‘subscription’ tab of the tipster’s profile. Many of them come with a generous trial period.

Always estimate the likelihood that you’ll cover the cost of your tipster, basing your calculations on past results. A simple way to do this is to multiply your estimated monthly turnover (total stakes) by the ROI. If this easily covers the cost then it’s probably suitable for you. Be aware that some subscriptions might be too high for your turnover.


Tipstrr Review — Find & Follow Proofed Tipsters


Once you subscribe to a tipster — free of subscription — you’ll be notified of tips via email in the following format. It’s neat, simplistic and standardised:

Will The Tipsters Make Me Money?

First are foremost, no tipster — no matter where you find them — can guarantee you’ll earn a profit by following their advice. A strong past record doesn’t always continue in the same vein. Indeed many high performing tipsters of the past (both on Tipstrr and elsewhere) have eventually fallen from grace despite being given a unanimous thumbs up by various proofing sites. Remember:


A sports betting edge can diminish over time if an opportunity closes. This has nothing to do with luck or psychology: if the selection method no longer identifies value in the markets, it fails.


Tipstrr is not exempt from this. But several of their core services — such as those in the ‘Tipstrr Pro’ section — maintain a loyal base of followers that regularly generate profits. Those followers tend to subscribe and closely monitor multiple few tipsters at once, building a portfolio of bets. As with any profitable method, they eventually find their bookmaker accounts limited for following successful patterns; this indicates their bets had value.

However, on the flip side other members have found it difficult to consistently obtain the advised odds — which negatively impacts their overall profits. Perhaps this was down to a lack of speed? No doubt the lines move so quickly at times; a nuance with any popular tipster service, and by no means a problem unique to Tipstrr.

Room For Improvement

I feel Tipstrr needs to improve in terms of showing practical, achievable profits.

Whether obtaining the advised odds is an issue of speed or not, followers need to know what their realistic profit would be based on odds they are most likely to get on. For example, a theoretical “practical profit” could be determined by taking the available odds 5, 10, 15 minutes after the tip was advised. This would drastically improve the value and accuracy of the profit records.

At least the trail period helps you to work out where you stand before fully committing.


In summary: to make the most from Tipstrr narrow down your portfolio to only the strongest, most reliable tipsters on the platform and then focus on getting your bets away as quickly as possible after the tip notification comes through. 

 

Review Summary


Things I Like About Tipstrr

  • Automated proofing offering maximum accuracy and detail.
  • Anyone can signup for proofing. No invite required.
  • No upfront subscription costs.
  • Large offering of free tipsters.
  • Low cost trial periods for paid services.
  • Excellent user interface with highly detailed, dynamic, standardised profit reports.
  • Standardised tip notifications.
  • A growing pool of tipsters; many have been established for several years.
  • Easy to find a suitable service to fit your schedule.
  • Continual proofing: no service is given a permanent ‘seal of approval’ based on previous performance.
  • Tipster monthly countdowns featured on the blog.

Things I Don’t Like About Tipstrr

  • The platform is not entirely independent from its tipsters: the site needs to sell subscriptions to earn.
  • A “practical profit” has not been included on the otherwise detailed reports.
  • Lacks sports outside of Horse Racing and Football.
  • Little guidance in terms of portfolio building.
  • Tips for specific events can be improved. A day pass of event tips from all top tipsters would be excellent.

My Verdict

I recommend it primarily for its neat interface, advanced auto-proofing system, highly detailed reports, and overall focus on transparency. The site poses a serious threat to the vast majority of rival proofing sites, and offers vigilant members the ability to identify profitable services long before they hit stardom.

But Tipstrr certainly has room for improvement — as does every other tipster proofing service I’ve ever seen. No question, Tipstrr comes up short on some sports. And some of its recommended services are popular enough to create issues in getting on the advised odds.

Nonetheless, whether you’re a casual or regular bettor, the site does a fantastic job of connecting punters to multiple tipsters. It drastically improves transparency within the industry and, importantly, offers the potential for punters to improve profitability. It’s a big step in the right direction for the tipster scene — that’s why it deserves a recommendation on this site.

There’s several factors that make a particular sport the ‘best’ to bet on. It ultimately depends on your personal outlook.

This article extends the answer I provided to the Trademate Sports ‘Industry Experts’ blog for the question: What’s the best sport to bet on?

 

Choosing A Sport For Betting

As a bettor you’ll choose to focus on specific sports for one or more reasons, such as:

  • Value: if your main objective is to generate a profit, then some sports will present more opportunities than others.
  • Sporting interest: if you’re invested in the sport itself (e.g. you regularly watch it on TV, follow a particular club or individual), then you might prefer to bet on those events — especially if you feel that you have an advantage.
  • Frequency of events: some sports have more events than others. This might dictate what you decide to focus your betting activity on.
  • Betting enjoyment: some events have more markets, more variety, and various other elements (e.g. high odds long shots) that add to your excitement of sports betting. Whether you realise it or not, this might influence your choices.

The real question is: what are you looking to achieve from sports betting?

 

Horse Racing: My Chosen Sport

Theoretically, given that earning a profit is my main priority, I’d say horse racing is the best sport to bet on.

Ironically I don’t take a huge interest in horse racing itself. In fact, I’ve only ever been to a handful of race days. I’m far more interested in football, and I’ll watch it religiously every week during the Premier League season.

But I recognise that from an investment standpoint horse racing offers several advantages over most other sports.


Advantages Of Horse Racing

  1. The odds move so drastically that you can secure a price that’s far better than the current market odds (or closing line). See my Guide To Beating the Closing Line.
  2. Best Odds Guaranteed‘ is offered by many bookmakers, providing protection against price moves out of your favour.
  3. Events come in thick & fast (all year round), so there’s always more opportunities on the horizon.
  4. Money can be recycled rapidly, as there’s (usually) only a matter of hours from bet placement to bet settlement.
  5. Arbitrage and value bets very frequently arise in horse racing markets.

But note that I said ‘theoretically‘ horse racing is the best sport. Allow me to elaborate…

 

The Reality Of Profitable Sports Betting

The fact is, bookmakers closely monitor the horse racing markets (and any other profitable sport) for the very reasons I’ve stated above. So while it may have all the elements that a professional bettor wants, it’s often a better proposition to focus on a combination of less-popular betting markets.

Obscure markets in football, basketball, hockey, tennis — among many others — spring to mind. While the ROI of opportunities found in these markets will almost certainly be lower than in horse racing, part of betting professionally is working out when you’re most likely to get your accounts limited, and steering clear of those situations.

Limitations Of Less-Popular Sports

Just keep in mind that choosing extremely obscure markets creates problems of its own.

Liquidity is often low — meaning you’ll struggle to get big stakes away. Plus, let’s face it: you’ll raise a few eyebrows at the bookies for being so confident on ludicrously niche events!

With this in mind, the ‘best’ sport from a professional standpoint is simply whatever enables you to generate the most expected value.

  • Is it blasting your stakes on high yield events and most probably facing the ‘chop’ in record time?
  • Is it betting on less obvious sports with a lower ROI, but lasting a little longer before restriction?
  • Or is there another approach that enables you to fly under the radar for longer?

If you can find a way to consistently profit from the betting exchange then this entire conversation changes.

But until then you’ll have to experiment in your approach to betting on value. I can’t give a definitive solution to avoiding account restrictions because not all bookies take the same approach to identifying pros, and there’s no guarantee any successful method will continue to work in the future.
