A guide to matched betting – part four


Placing bets on the favored outcomes of sporting events has been around since organized sports teams were initially formed. The participants bet on the odds of their team, or individual person, or animal winning. And when they are right, they reap the financial rewards of making the bet work. Sports tipsters have their hands down in the pockets of the betters to help them make it happen.

Since there are such high stakes regarding the wager, it will come as no surprise that some people are looking to have luck shine in their favor by enlisting the help of someone who is known as a tipster. The tipster is enlisted for their expertise on the subject and they offer relevant information in order for the better to make a more informed bet. This person is known as the sports tipster in the business.

Overview – Who Is a Tipster?

A sports tipster by definition is any one person who provides specific information, also known as a tip, to another person who is looking to place a bet on any given sporting events results. By history the tip is given in exchange for something in return, usually something of monetary value.

The value that comes from requesting the assistance of the tip is inherently from the insight the person has on the subject matter. The most effective tipsters can be a person who has intimate knowledge of an individual player in the game or in the event itself that is not otherwise available to the general public.

Other effective tipsters are people that are everlasting students of the sport, meaning that they utilize every reputable source of related information regarding the past, present, and the future in order to make concerted predictions on the potential outcome in the end.

Role of Tipsters

In order to understand how they operate, first you must understand how it all works. When a better, also known as a punter, is looking to make a bet then they will choose a specific game in which to bet on. If the bet is for a football game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys, then the better picks who they think will be the winning team.

Then the better will go to a bookmaker in order to make the bet official and it either will be a wage earning or wage loss endeavor when it’s all said and done. The bet might read, that for The Cowboys vs. the 49ers game, that it is for the Cowboys for +14. What that means is for in order for the better to win the bet, he needs the Cowboys to win the game or he loses the bet. However, if the Cowboys do not win the game then it depends on how many points that they lose by.

If the Cowboys lose by 13 points or less or 15 points or more then, he will lose all of the money that he bet. But if the Cowboys lose by exactly 14 points then he would get his money back from the bookmaker.

This is called covering the spread and that is how sporting tipsters run their business by making predictions on who will win and then recommending the bookmakers to secure for the bet. The sports tipsters get an initial cut from the bet and then later, in return, the sports tipsters get a percentage back from the bookmaker for their referral. There are many bookmakers on the internet with which to make a bet. SO, differing sports tipsters will offer varying spreads that will make it ultimately more or less enticing to by-in by a potential better.

The Professional Vs The Casual Tipsters

Professional Tipsters will explain how their service works, by way of their website, with statistic based data that they have already achieved. Their main goal is to help the punter beat the bookie based on their knowledge and experience that they have to offer. The idea is that with the help, the punter will increase their ultimate income coming primarily from placing bets on game.


But they do not guarantee one hundred percent success even though the better is paying for it. That means that they can’t ensure that the teams that the punter is betting on will win the games, they are only serving to help improve the odds of the better winning the bet.

They will also advertise their success rate as a whole. For example, they might say that they have 1.85 success rate. That means that out of the total number of sports tips that they gave out over a specified period of time, that that is the percentage at which those people won their bets. It is their claim to fame in order to build truth in the credibility of the service that they are offering.

The casual better and the casual tipster go hand in hand. The casual better – tipster relationship would be a less committed, want to be better that seeks out less involved sports tips from various websites that offer the tips for free. The casual tipster gives the information out for free in hopes of converting a noncommittal better to come back after their initial visit to the website. They are essentially looking for return business from them and by collecting on repeat business they will secure profits ahead. They do so by offering something initially of lesser value than the more systematic bets for them to both get used to the new website they are encountering but also to build trust.
