In Play “Tips”
This a clear sign that a Tipster is a fraud and doesn’t know what he’s doing. When a market goes “in-play” the odds are shortened on all sides. next time you’re waiting for a game to kick-off observe the shift in odds from 1 minute before to 1 minute “in-play” you’ll notice a significant change in prices.
Markets with a high Over-round
There are some markets professional gamblers never touch and these include Correct-score, First/Last Goalscorer, Scorecasts and Half time/ Full Time Bets. Why you ask? The Overround is ridiculously high because they know mug punters want to place these kinds of bets and take advantage of larger odds
Constantly tipping whatever is on next
Don’t keep faith in someone that is constantly tipping the next match, this is classic gambling addict behavior from someone who probably has based his decision on the teams last few results without doing any in-depth research.
If you notice they are Tipping something else as soon as the previous tip ends walk away. this is the quickest way to the poor house.
Pro’s should be meticulous with their tips and not be afraid to wait for the right bet to come.
Every Tip has an affiliate link attached
Tipsters will often offer a Tip with an affiliate link attached. This is done because they will get a fee for every customer that deposits using their affiliate link. If you notice a link with every single Tip you have reason to be suspicious, they are probably more concerned with getting their affiliate money than winning Bets
(We do promote certain bookie promotions that we believe in, but not with our Tips and maybe only once per day)
You need a Bet365/Certain Bookmaker account to follow their Tips
I see this all the time from accounts claiming to be Tipsters, they just want you to sign up to get their referral bonus and put little to no effort has gone into researching the game. Use Oddsportal to check the odds for game and make sure you’re taking the best odds available. For most games you’ll get at least 20+ books quoting odds
They Don’t track all their Bets or show Profit/Loss
What’s the point of trusting a Tipster that doesn’t keep a record of everything? The only way to judge a Tipster is over a long timeline with verified results. any Tipster that manages to produce profits over the course of a year should be trusted. We of course track all our Members Tip
They don’t offer reasons to back up their Tips
Often a Tipster will send you multiple selections without a reason for the bet. If a pro comes to the conclusion to bet on a certain selection he should share the reason why.
They don’t give you the biggest price (odds) available
Sites like Oddsportal.com and Oddschecker.com are an absolute must in any gamblers Arsenal. If you don’t have multiple accounts and aren’t availing of the best prices you’re leaving yourself short. Sure you can say a “Win is a Win” but over the course of the year your balance will look a lot healthier if you’re taking the best price each time. The differene might only be £2 but they all add up at the end of the year
They offer Tips that are a £10-1000 Challenge
These are usually a bunch of short 1/5(1.2) “Tips that should win. The idea is that you lump all your winnings on to the next selection until you hit the desired amount. The problem is this is very risky and you’re likely to lose 95% of the time
Adding teams to the C**t list
This one always amuses us, Tipsters not accepting that losers are inevitable but instead deciding never to bet on a said team again as they “Let them down” any intelligent bettor will know there’s no place in the betting world for superstitions or betting with your Gut.
