Betfair Racing Tipster


Monday saw the release of the very latest SBC Tipster Review and it’s safe to say it might well be one of the most popular pieces we have ever published!

Speaking to the tipster behind it all on Wednesday, he told me that already more than 60 SBC members had signed-up to be on the restart list for the service – which is due to begin advising tips again on the 20th June.

This re-start delay is simply to ensure they only advise tips when they have enough solid recent racing form to go off, since the sport itself only began behind closed doors on the 1st June.

The reason for the popularity is easy to understand as this tipster ticks a lot of boxes such as…

  • Betfair & Betdaq Friendly – It can only be followed on Betfair and/or Betdaq and so is ideal for those of you suffering from bookmaker restrictions.
  • Automated Bot Placement – The service uses a simple betting bot to automatically place down all bets a few minutes before each race. Getting you the best odds & saving you lots of time!
  • Major Exchange Profits – Perhaps the most important factor is the profits made as to betting exchange prices, the service has made a 16.51% ROI from 2661 bets since March 2019.
  • Profitable at Betfair SP – Not only this but if following at Betfair SP, the profits rise to 19.14% ROI (and as always, this is after commission is deducted).
  • 10% Discount For SBC Members – On top of the fact this tipster costs just £29.99 per month, you can also save a further 10% as an SBC member as part of the discounts we negotiate on their behalf.
  • 5 Years in the making – This is also a tipster service that is based on 5 years worth of development and uses 6 different AI prediction models to generate the advice supplied.

This review is also the first in our forthcoming special on Betting Exchange Profits with several other tipsters profitable on Betfair or at Betfair SP to be published in coming weeks and months.


On Friday I told you about the release of perhaps our most popular racing tipster review ever – and today I want to showcase a little bit more about just why this betting exchange tipster service is ticking so many boxes.

The service itself uses a betting bot to automatically place the tips put forward on either Betfair and Betdaq. These tips are generated by an advanced system that took 5 years to develop and includes input from 6 different AI prediction models.

The performance levels between March 2019 and March 2020 (when racing stopped until recently) illustrate why this service has been so popular with a 1332 points at 16.51% ROI from 2661 bets.

This above table is based on the bot striking the bet for you on either Betfair or Betdaq in the minutes before each race itself starts.

Betfair SP Profits

In our review of this tipster, we took our analysis one step further and were able to cross reference 99.7% of these results and judge how they performed at Betfair SP over this March 2019 – March 2020 period.

To Betfair SP (after commission) we found the profits and ROI actually grew to 1545 points and 19.14% ROI respectively.

Highlighting this as a service whereby you can either use the bot to place the bets in the live Betfair/Betdaq market before the race itself or just take at Betfair SP.

What is Smart Betting Club (SBC) & Key Benefits

SBC – About Us

Smart Betting Club (previously known as Secret Betting Club) introduces themselves as;

The Smart Betting Club is an independent and honest reviewer and assessor of tipster services.
We have proofed and analysed thousands of tipster services, with the very best reviewed in our regular ‘SBC Magazines’, where we explore in great detail just how profitable they actually are.
Each tipster is rated and ranked on everything from their profitability and customer service to how easy it is to obtain their advised odds. The very best and most genuinely profitable tipsters are then listed in our ‘Hall of Fame’.
We constantly track and monitor these very best tipsters and feedback to our members on their ongoing progress with tipster league tables, ratings, charts and analysis in our ‘Tipster Profit Reports’. Enabling you to keep up to date on the best performing tipsters.
The Smart Betting Club’s remit has expanded to cover anything and everything that matters to keen gamblers – be it by tackling issues such as account restrictions, reviewing bookmakers or simply by being a trusted source for genuinely unbiased ‘punter-friendly’ information.
We are proud to be different and fiercely protective of the people we represent – you the ordinary punter.

It continues;

1. We Are 100% Independent

Unlike almost all other tipster review sites we are 100% independent, ensuring we take no affiliate deals, bungs or favours for writing positive reviews. This enables you to have full confidence that when we say something is good, it genuinely is and we are writing with your best interests at heart.

Rather than take a cut or a percentage of any sales of any service we review, instead the Smart Betting Club service is funded by members subscriptions. It is a fully transparent model so as a member you know our reviews and recommendations are always 100% genuine.

2. We Look Long-Term

Everything we do is focused on making long-term profits, which is why you will never see us recommend a tipster based on short-term stats or hot streaks of form. Instead we look to what can be made over the long-term, usually at least 12 months and a large enough set of stats to draw firm conclusions from.

It is one reason the average length of time it takes for a tipster to win an SBC ‘Hall of Fame’ recommendation currently stands at over 3 years. We value longevity in a tipster.

3. We Are On The Punters Side

Because we are funded by our members, it also ensures we are fully on the side of the punter and can speak the truth about the betting industry. Many betting newspapers, websites and media outlets are funded by bookmaker advertising and so are unable to be truly on the punters side. They are compromised by their need for bookmaker revenue.

The Smart Betting Club is 100% independent and does not rely upon or carry bookmaker advertising in our reports, so you can be assured we are firmly on the punters side.

Bet Diary 

SBC started Bet Diary in Jan 2015, which is a betting blog, produced by SBC reviewer and keen punter, Rowan Day. In his blog, you will find plenty from Rowan on a wide range of topics, Secret Betting Club Review, Rowan Photoincluding the performance of his own smart bets, betting portfolio, the tipsters he follows, plus the latest on his beloved Gooners. 

Rowan has generated steady profits consistently, and has never experienced a losing year. His record proves that he can expect to achieve a Return On Capital of between 50% and 100% as below;

  • 2015/2016: 7.2% Return On Investment (ROI) and Return on Capital (ROC)
  • 2016/2017: 8.8% ROI and 58.76% ROC
  • 2017/2018: 9% ROI and 41.28% ROC
  • So, since April 2015, Rowan has made a total of 164.40% Return on Capital (or Betting Bank Growth) in a little over 3 years
  • It can be translated that assuming Rowan began with £5,000 in April 2015, then 164.40% ROC would have made him a £8,220.00 profit by the end of April 2018.

If you know exactly what you want to do, or after you get personal consultation from Rowan, you can chose the Tipsters based on SBC Tipster Reports

Hall of Fame (HOF) Tipsters

At the starting period, you may want to focus on SBC Hall Of Fame (HOM) tipsters that are defined by SBC as;

Any service listed in our Hall Of Fame section has been fully proofed by us as a genuine, professional and above all profitable service. We make assessments based on first hand experience that we have made a profit using them and where we see no obvious reason why these profits won’t continue in the short to medium term. Very often a Hall of Fame rating has been won over a long period of time, with the majority of tipsters listed within this having a track record dating back several years. Longevity and consistency of profits is key to receiving a Hall of Fame rating.

Simply, the most reliable tipsters. Currently, 8 Sports & 11 Horse Racing HOF tipsters are listed and you can get SBC discount for their subscription costs of 10 out of 19 as follows;


sbc tipsters rating oct 2019


sbc tipsters rating horse oct 2019

Hall of Fame (HOF) Tipsters Performance

The suggested bank, unit & subscription fee varies among HOF tipsters, but I calculated past 12 months simple average as below;

  • Sports Suggested Bank: £3,060
  • Sports Profits to Suggested Bank (After Subscription Fee): £2,594 / ROC 84.8%
  • Horse Racing Suggested Bank: £3,455
  • Horse Racing Profits to Suggested Bank (After Subscription Fee): £2,413 / ROC 69.8%

Assuming you start up with £5,000 bankroll by taking Sports HOF tipster (s), your bank will be grown to be £9,240 (after tipsters’ subscription fees) in 1 year, means £4,240 pure profits. 

The above numbers prove that any ordinary punters can be profitable by following top tipsters listed in SBC. 


Generally speaking, the return of HOF tipsters are pretty solid in long-term as seen from the below The Best All Time Horse Racing Tipsters where top 5 tipsters (all are HOF) doesn’t change. Well we can say that because of this stability they are awarded Hall Of Fame.sbc annualized profits ranking horse

Diversify Your Betting Portfolio

As Pete suggests in our interview, the key strategy is to develop a well diversified portfolio mixing up varieties of sports, market & strike-rate. This allows you to achieve more constant profit from smart bets by reducing overall risk as well as emotional distress caused by losing streaks.

Once your betting bank grows enough to diversify, you’d better add up new tipsters. SBC regularly review & update new tipsters which is published in SBC magazines like;

sbc magazine 2 new racing tipsters
sbc magazine nfl tipsters

When we look at The Best All Time Sports Tipster, 5 tipsters came in from outside 25 during the previous 12 months. .sbc annualized profits ranking sports

Therefore you will never dry up top performing tipsters resources. This can enable you to constantly update & build a valuable portfolio.


Smart Bet Sustainable Formulas – After Your Bookies Restrict Your Account

Soft & Sharp Bookmakers

As I explained in International Betting Guide, broadly speaking, there are 2 types of bookies of Soft & Sharp bookies, for details, take a look at Beat The Bookies By Knowing How Your Enemy Makes Money – Secret Of Odds. But very quickly, we can characterize each bookie as;

  • Soft bookies: Targeting Casual Punters – Run a lot of promotion / Odds adjustment is relatively slow / Impose account restriction such as gubbing (promotion ban) & stake limit.
  • Sharp bookies: Targeting Professional Punters – Highly competitive odds / High staking limit / Quick Odds adjustment / Never impose account restriction.

If you keep winning / taking too much value from soft bookies, it’s inevitable for you to face account limits. 

When You Face Bookies’ Account Restriction 

Sharp Bookies

The sharp bookies never restrict your account – see the next “Formula for Outside UK & Ireland Players" section.

Means, you can focus on such sharp bookies (see the list) to keep using SBC tipsters although your betting category will be more on Sports rather than horse racing given the facts that few sharp bookies provide UK & Ireland horse racing bets.  

Betting Exchange

Besides, given the nature of Betting Exchange business model, Betting Exchange never imposes any account restrictions. SBC rates the best tipsters specializing betting exchange (they call Exchange Friendly Tipsters) channels, so you can shift your focus on this path. No need to say that you can bet on UK & Ireland Horse Racing in the following 4 most established betting exchanges;

In case you are not familiar with the betting exchanges, the below 2 documents will be of good help & beneficial;

Sustainable Extra Income

Assuming you’ve already built reasonable bank before you are restricted by soft bookies and can allocate big enough bank for these Exchange Friendly tipsters, then you are likely to earn handsome regular income. 

Of course, any past achievements never guarantee future, and even if the things don’t go as expected, you can switch to other Exchange Friendly Tipster(s) SBC constantly assess & update.


Success Formulas for Outside UK & Ireland Players

Smart Betting Club itself don’t restrict any countries therefore everybody from anywhere in the world can subscribe. So what are the issues & solutions for global players?


The issue is if you can access to the bookmakers or betting exchanges each tipster suggests. Many tipsters assume UK & Ireland prospective punters thus the price (odds) they refer are often UK based bookies.  


However, that doesn’t limit SBC Tipsters only into UK & Ireland punters, but actually there are many ways for International Players to make the best use of SBC tipsters and place smart bets. Let me provide you with the solutions by Sports & Horse Racing category respectively;

Sports Market

Football, Basketball (NBA etc), American Football (NFL, NCAA etc) & Golf which SBC Tipsters cover are international sports. Means almost all online bookmakers accessible in your jurisdiction must provide the market of these sports. 

Then, you will find our solution in the GEM articles of: 3 Advantage Plays for Global Players & Bookmakers’ Offers for Global Players.

Horse Racing & Sports Market

When it comes to horse racing, there are few non UK bookies that offer UK & Ireland horse racing that SBC tipsters cover. So, you need to use Bet Broker which gives you multiple UK based Betting Exchange & Asian Sharp Bookies account(s). 

You can bet horse racing on the betting exchanges provided by the bet broker. 

Besides, as briefly explained, sharp bookies’s odds are very competitive represented by Pinnacle, means you will have chances to get better prices than the UK based soft bookies, therefore you can make the best use of them for Sports as well. If you can’t access to the sharp bookies in your country, then consider using Bet Brokers.

One bet broker example is Sportmarket, which provide you with an account that integrated multiple sharp bookies & betting exchanges as follows;

  • Bookies: Pinnacle / ISN / IBC / SBO / Singbet / 18bet / Redzone (1%) / 3et (0.5%)
  • Betting Exchange: Betfair (2.3%) / Matchbook (1.8%) / Betdaq (1.2%) / SPM (1%) 
  • The above () indicates the commission taken by Sportmarket
  • Restricted Countries: USA / UK / France / Spain / Portugal / Serbia

The Betting exchanges in Sportmarket Pro account indicated below don’t offer Lay bet but only back bet though still these betting exchanges will give you very good odds. 

  • rebelbetting valuebet sportmarket coverage

As noted above, Sportmarket don’t accept USA / UK / France / Spain / Portugal / Serbia, so if you reside in these countries, you may want to use Asianconnect;

  • Restricted Countries: US, Philippines & Singapore (UK Players are Accepted Only If use Bitcoin for deposit / withdrawal – means Asianconnect don’t reject UK registration but accept only BTC deposit)
  • Covered Bookies: Pinnacle / SBOBet / MaxBet (Former IBC Bet) / Bet ISN / Sing Bet

You can receive sign-up 20% deposit bonus (up to 400 EUR bonus) by using promotion code of “AC400".

You will never be restricted and your stake limit is usually very high when you place smart bets via bet broker(s).

However, bet brokers are usually SMEs (Small & Medium Sized Enterprises), thus you need to make sure the bet broker you use is safe. So, suggest you go through Honest Opinion About Bet Broker & How To Use Them Safely & Smartly before you put any money.

Lay Market

There are several good SBC tipsters who use Lay betting.

The betting exchanges integrated in Sportmarket Pro don’t offer lay market but only back market, thus you need a different solution, which is a Betfair White Label, meaning you can access to the same Betfair market & liquidity including Lay market. Betfair white label is also provided by bet broker like BetInAsia

  • Bookmakers Covered: Pinnacle (PS3838), Singbet, BetISN, SBObet, MAXbet (Former IBC Bet) and 18bet
  • Betting Exchange Covered (commission): Betfair (3% on winning), Betdaq (1.5% on winning), Matchbook (1.25 on both winning & losing), Turf7 (1.25% on winning) & Citibet
  • Betfair White Labels (commission both 3%) – Orbit & Betmantra (former Mountbet) Both will not levy Premium Charges.
  • Restricted Countries: US, UK, Sweden & France

We have reviewed and list 3 Bet Brokers offering Betfair Whitelabel, see the details in Betfair Alternatives For People Who Can’t Access Or Seek Better Options.


Good Luck!!
