Feeling honoured that my #WisdomOfTheCrowd tipping service has been approved and independently verified by the Secret Betting Club in their latest magazine (issue 106) and received a 5 out of 5 stars rating for transparency!
From the review…
“Every now and then a service emerges that is completely different to anything that has come before. Whether that be mode of bet selection, method of bet placement, or the use of new technology, there is something that sets it apart from the crowd. This is certainly the case with Wisdom of Crowds (WoC), which approaches tipping and bet placement from a very different angle to most…”
“Wisdom of Crowds is a well-researched and documented methodology that uses ‘efficient market hypothesis’ to identify value in match odds betting markets. If you wish to read more about the principles and laws of the Wisdom of Crowds concept, then this link will take you to a PDF written by well-known betting author and mathematician, Joseph Buchdahl. If you intend to read Joseph’s 20-page publication, then be prepared to get your ‘mathematical head’ on.”

Apologies to the well respected Joseph Buchdahl from http://www.football-data.co.uk for stealing the title for this article. I find it appropriate and creative at the same time so couldn’t resist using it. I swear the rest of the article are my very own words… 🙂
It is oh-so-tempting to check a half-decent tipster-platform and sign up with a tipster who is being promoted as the next big thing. Even for more experienced punters it is sometimes hard to resist.
The majority of this article will deal with the financial investment world, but the principles are equally relevant to sports betting.
It is perhaps the greatest paradox in the investment world that many consistently profitable money managers have a large percentage of losing clients. I recently saw the records of a very successful US Hedge Fund, that showed over 40% of their lifetime client base had actually lost money while investing with the fund! This fund had a relatively consistent record of double digit annual gains over decades! This rather odd story is by no means isolated, it is repeated within many successful funds.
Smartbet.io offers a betting application that automates all aspects of betting, suitable for both tipsters and punters.
Specifically, the application will automatically retrieve bet details from almost any kind of source (including the most popular tipster platforms like blogabet, pyckio, betadvisor, etc), form the corresponding order, automatically place the bet at best market prices and it will track all bet details in real time.
You hear a lot of sports bettors say it, “I beat the closing price on that bet” but what does it really mean and why is it important to winning when it comes to betting on sports?
The closing price is the betting price at the sportsbooks when all betting is closed and the game is about to start. It is the most accurate price because all of the money has been bet and all available information and opinions have been factored in. Read More »
In sports betting it’s sometimes hard to judge where you stand on your way to profits. Is it a matter of good fortune (or bad fortune for that matter) or are you genuinely holding an edge over the bookmaker(s)?
To answer this question a proper understanding of risk and uncertainty helps.Read More »
