Tipstrr of the Month - February 2015

Welcome to our fifth 'Tipstrr of the Month' awards for February 2015, where we analyse the tips and picks processed via our system to see who takes the trophy for best tipster or best handicapper on our automated and verified platform..


Tipstrr of the Month Award
The overall Tipstrr of the Month award goes to New-View Betting!! He placed 58 tips during the month of February, providing 33 winners in the process, with average odds comfortably above evens (2.11). Thos following his bets for February saw him provide a Return on Investment of more than 20% (20.69%). With a win rate of 56.9%, New-View were close to receiving the Best Win Percentage award too! We aren't surprised to see his client base grow and grow throughout February, and with records like this, we don't expect it to change! He is one of our many FREE Tipstrrs too, so why not sign up to his site and start receiving his plays!

February saw a lot of good performers on the Tipstrr platform, with some great returns. Brazilian Football Tips won 18 and pushed 1 of his 31 bets this month, providing a Return on Investment of 19.74% - CHECK HIS VERIFIED RESULTS. Other notable mentions should go to newbie Shark Insider and the experienced BetMDsports who recorded return on investments of 14.7% and 11.2% respectively.

In fact, BetMDsports provided the most profit over the course of the month (check his awesome NCAAB results here), but with a larger quantity of tips, New-View Betting scooped this month's award.

Best Win Percentage Tipstrr Award
The Best Win Percentage award this month goes to Shark Insider! After placing 90 tips throughout January, the Shark Insider won exactly 60% (54). What makes this even more impressive, is the fact that his average odds were around 2.25! A sixty percent win rate is tough to achieve at the regular 1.91 line, so to have that sort of success at these odds shows he has great potential. He has provided his clients with some great returns this month, and we knew he'd be good when we got him on board. Join him now for free!

Brazilian Football Tips was close again, with a 58% win rate, and Ad Hock Picks, NVB, BetGGsports and BetMDsports all put in good results to record profitable win percentages, 

Syndic8 was unbelievably close to getting this award, but with 55.66% win rate, he was just pipped to the post. Others that did well in this category were JSBA Hatter, Gibol Tips and Italian Football Tips.

Most Active Tipstrr Award
Kiitos won this award last month, and they take the crown of "Most Active Tipstrr" for February too. There are a couple of tipsters, James and JP, and between them they amassed almost 350 tips in total across an array of football leagues.

There were plenty of other active tipsters, with BetMD, Gibol, Indy, MajorK posting high volume tips. American sports are truly at their peak at the minute, with College Basketball, NBA, NFL (and Baseball to come!), along with a busy soccer schedule in Europe. 

Biggest Longshot Tipstrr Award

Finally, we have the "Longshot Award". This is awarded to the biggest winning bet of the month. This month, the accolade goes to The Racing Tipster who recorded a winning accumulator at odds of 9.69. We had several other big winners, but nothing could top these odds!

Top5Bets had a couple of winners at 7.00, and Kiitos had a good double priced at 6.06. Think you could do better? Get in touch and we can get you your own tipstrr site sorted!

The importance of using truly verified sports handicappers

OK, so maybe we go on about being 'verified' a lot, but that's only because we understand just how important it is. If you're serious about building a decent betting portfolio and looking to make money from sports betting, you need to be able to trust the source of your plays. 

It all starts with the adage "if it sounds too good to be true...". If a sports handicapper professes to be the best in the world, you need to ask yourself a few questions:
  1. What is that claim based upon? Have they received an award saying as such?
  2. Do they have genuine results that are documented by third parties?
  3. Are any documented results hidden from the public? (hint: they shouldn't be)

Examples of (potentially*) rogue sites:

Bob Akmen Sports - official owner of the world's longest homepage and the most brutal use of comic sans you'll have ever seen. They offer an annual package for just $4,995 (saving more than $11,000 from the regular price). All of this with no actual evidence of the service being profitable, other than an annoying pop-up video and claims that a (paid for) article says that they are awesome.

All Star Sports Picks - Most outrageous 'staking plan' you are ever likely to see. A rather good day on 5th April 2014 saw him win 4 horse racing tips in succession for a combined profit of $44,115,021 (stakes ranging from , yet 2 days earlier he advised stakes of $1,000 on an NHL pick at odds of 1.91 (-110) to win around $900. Lets put this in to perspective for a second... If you have a $10,000 betting bank, and bet 2% ($200) on each horse racing bet, your stake for the NHL bet would've been 0.003% - $0.30! Not to mention the fact that the results appear to be entirely fabricated. Put frankly, this type of site is what is wrong with the sports handicapping industry.

The aim of what we offer is simple, to give people considering subscribing to sports tipsters and handicapper the chance to vet them before they commit to memberships. We know that finding a genuinely worthwhile sports handicapper is difficult, especially when the internet is so full of people looking to get you to part with your money by promising you the world.

Here is a video that we think shows exactly the type of thing that can happen if you subscribe to handicappers and tipsters purely based on how good they proclaim to be, and not on facts and verified data. 

*potentially = almost certainly
