The 146th Open Championship tees off on Thursday at Carnoustie Golf Club in Scotland and as ever it is a great competition from a betting point of view, with a huge number of opportunities to bet on.

Carnoustie is generally recognised as the toughest course on the Open rota, with the nickname “Carnasty.” It is perhaps most famous for Jean Van de Velde’s collapse on the 18th hole in 1999 that allowed Paul Lawrie to triumph in a playoff.

Although not expected to be anything like as tough this year, the course is still expected to provide a stiff challenge for competitors with plenty of trouble lurking around every corner.

The course is playing firm and fast in classic links fashion and holding the ball on the greens will be a test this week.

The Open betting market – appropriately perhaps – is wide open, with Dustin Johnson the favourite at 12/1, followed by Justin Rose at 16/1 and Rickie Fowler at 18/1.

If you are looking for some tips for the week, we can recommend the following tipsters: 

  • – Top 20 Golf Tips – has made over £7,200 profit to £10 stakes  and an ROI so far in July of 100%. 
  • – Golf Betting Expert – has made his members an excellent £240 profit per month on average since starting to just £10 stakes.
  • – Ultimate Golf Tips – has made over 150 points profit since starting up just this year and that has been made with an incredible return on investment of over 50%.

It is a good week for the punters, with bookies offering up to top 10 positions for a place (with Skybet, Paddy Power, Coral and Bet Bright). 

Other bookies offering 8 places include Bet 365, Betfair Sportsbook, 10Bet and Boylesports.

Good luck if you do have any punts this week and let’s hope for another enjoyable week of golf watching from the links.

Golf Tipsters – Our Top 12

After having a look at some of the top horse racing tipsters recently, today we are going to take a look at some of the best golf tipsters and which ones you might like to follow.

Here is a list of the top twelve golf tipsters we have found through our extensive research and testing.


1. Golf Betting Expert

Golf Swing

At the top of our list is the Golf Betting Expert, a tipster who has amassed an incredible record of success since he started tipping.

Having begun in early 2016, the Golf Betting Expert has managed to make over 700 points profit, a quite astonishing feat. That would work out as over £7,000 to just £10 stakes and is equivalent to nearly £250 per month profit.

Some of his winners in that time include:-

  • John Deere Classic – Bryson DeChambeau – WON at 66/1
  • Greenbrier Classic – Xander Schaufelle – WON at 66/1
  • Valero Texas Open – Kevin Chappell – WON at 33/1 
  • US Masters – Sergio Garcia – WON at 45/1 
  • Shell Houston Open – Russell Henley – WON at 40/1
  • Barclays Kenya Open – Aaron Rai – WON at 25/1 
  • Indian Open – SSP Chowrasia – WON at 100/1
  • Hong Kong Open – Sam Brazel – WON at 250/1
  • DP World Tour Championship – Matthew Fitzpatrick – WON at 66/1 
  • Sanderson Farms Championship – Cody Gribble – WON at 125/1
  • Boise Open – Michael Thompson – WON at 110/1
  • Sony Open – Fabian Gomez – WON at 100/1

So as you can see, quite an amazing roster of winners there. Plus there have been some great placed finishes as well to top up the profits.

Overall the Golf Betting Expert has made a return on investment of over 25% since starting tipping, one of the highest returns we have ever seen from any tipster, not just a golf tipster.

So with a record like that, it’s no wonder he is top of our list of golf tipsters. 


2. Ultimate Golf Tips

Ultimate Golf Tips is run by a guy who has been betting professionally on golf for over 15 years and  has worked with several bookmakers and odds compilers during this time, with connections to both the European Tour and the PGA Tour in America.

The service has made over 150 points profit since starting up just this year and that has been made with an incredible return on investment of over 50%.

That works out at an average monthly profit of £445 per month to just £10 stakes, which is quite a handy return indeed.

Recent winners include Thorbjorn Olesen at the Italian Open at 90/1, Bubba Watson at the Travelers Championship at 35/1, Francesco Molinari at the Quicken Loans National at 20/1 and Alex Noren to win the Open de France at 16/1.

With the weekly tips come full detailed write-ups and you can tell they really know their stuff, with detailed knowledge about the players’ games, courses, conditions and other key factors.

Ultimate Golf Tips is a top notch service and well worth adding to your portfolio.  


3. Top 20 Golf Tips

This service is a little different to most golf betting services as it focuses not on who will a tournament, but which players will finish in the top 20 – hence the name Top 20 Golf Tips. 

In many ways that is a sensible approach because it can be very tough to predict who will actually win a tournament outright and just a little bit of bad luck or a putt lipping out can be the difference between winning and losing, leading to a great deal of frustration if the player you have backed misses out.

However, by betting on a player to finish in the top 20 you are giving yourself a much wider margin of error and really just the need player to have a good tournament.

That’s the theory anyway and it certainly has worked very well for this betting service, with over 600 points profit made since they started tipping in 2016.

That equates to over £6,000 profit at just £10 stakes and has been made with an excellent return on investment of over 25%.

The average monthly profit is over £230 to just £10 stakes and a 150 betting bank would have grown well over 400% since the service started.

All in all then some superb metrics for Top 20 Golf Tips and well worthy of a place high on this list of the best golf tipsters.


4. SJP Golf Tips

One of the most renowned and long-running golf tipping services is SJP Golf Tips. 

The interesting thing about SJP Golf tips is that the service is provided by someone who is a professional golfer themselves – namely Stuart J Priestley (initials SJP).

Using his vast knowledge and golfing experience, SJP Golf Tips has generated large profits over the past few years and boasts an excellent return on investment (ROI) of 38%.

Since starting up in January 2015 the service has made a superb 1100 points profit, which works out an average monthly profit of £275 to £10 stakes.

Being a professional golfer himself Stuart obviously follows the game very closely and knows the players strengths and weaknesses very well. Each week you get a nice summary of the tournaments, courses and fields taking part.

That experience has certainly paid off and SJP Golf Tips has produced some of the most consistent and profitable golf betting results we have seen. Well worth checking out.


5.Betting Bias

Golf Clubs

Betting Bias is a website run by a team of professional gamblers who tip across a number of sports including horse racing, football, cricket and tennis.

However, their greatest achievements have come from tipping on golf, with some amazingly priced winners over the years. They tip not only in the main PGA and European Tours, but have had some of their greatest success on the Tour (which is the satellite tour for the PGA Tour).

Some of their top winners over the years have included:

  • Smylie Kaufman at 250/1 to win the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in 2015
  • Kevin Stadler at 125/1 to win the Phoenix Open in 2014
  • Pablo Larrazabal  at 125/1 to win the Abu Dhabi Championship in 2014
  • Brian Harman at 100/1 to win the John Deere Classic in 2014
  • Patrick Reed at 80/1 to win the Wyndham Championship in 2013
  • Keegan Bradley at 150/1 to win the USPGA in 2011

A good deal of their success has been in following up and coming players who are “under the radar” so to speak and not yet household names – or even known to most regular golf punters.

There is clearly great value to be found in identifying such players before the vast majority of other gamblers have – and Betting Bias have shown a real knack for that.

With the tips provided completely free, it really is a “no-brainer” as they say to follow their golf tips. The only thing we could caution is to have patience, as when tipping at odds regularly over 100/1, there can be long spells without a winner.

But when one does come, it is a tremendous feeling and well worth the wait. In between times they will often land decent-priced each-way bets as well, which keeps things ticking over nicely.

With a record that is almost unparalleled over the last 5 years, we are happy to give Betting Bias a place right towards the top of our list of golf tipsters.


6. The Golf Profiteer

The Golf Profiteer

Next on our list is the Golf Profiteer from the Tipster Street stables.

Since starting tipping in 2013, the Golf Profiteer has amassed 402 points profit at a return on investment of over 26%, which is very impressive figure for a two-year period.

Some of their notable winners include:

  • Emilliano Grillo at 60/1 for the Open in 2015
  • Victor Dubuisson at 44/1 for the Turkish Airlines Open in 2015
  • Bernt Weisberger at 38/1 for the French Open in 2015
  • Matteo Manassero at 70/1 for the BMW PGA Championship in 2013
  • Hunter Mahan at 47/1 for the Barclays in 2014

The Golf Profiteer has made at least 85 points profit in each of the three years he has been operating, which is very impressive. His results for the three years are as follows:

  • 2013: +141 points profit
  • 2014: +86 points profit
  • 2015: +177 points profit

So, very consistent stuff over the three years and just what we are looking for from a golf tipster.

What is slightly different about the Golf Profiteer is that rather than tipping each way, he tips win and top 10. Perhaps this gives a bit more leeway to players who do well but would otherwise agonisingly just miss out on a top 5 finish.

Anyway, the service comes highly recommended and we think well deserving of a place on our list.


7. Sporting Life Golf

Golf Ball Near Hole

The Sporting Life’s principal golf tipster is a chap called Ben Coley and he has established a formidable reputation with a string of impressive winners in recent years.

He was in hot form towards the end of 2015 with winners including Victor Dubuisson to win the Turkish Airlines Open (did anyone not tip him?) at 45/1, Graeme McDowell to win the OHL Classic at 35/1 and Rory McIlory to win the DP Tour Championship at 5/1.

Some of his big winners over the years include:

  • Russell Henley for the Honda Classic in 2014 at 300/1
  • Richie Ramsay for the Omega European Masters in 2012 at 100/1
  • Brett Rumford for the Ballantines Championship in 2013 at 80/1
  • Billy Horschel for the BMW Championship in 2014 at 70/1
  • Kyle Stanley for the Waste Management Phoenix Open in 2012 at 66/1
  • Hunter Mahan for the Barclays in 2014 at 50/1

Before joining the Sporting Life’s Betting Zone website, Ben had previously provided betting tips on Sports Live Radio and even worked for one of the UK’s largest bookies. He apparently spends many hours studying the golf form to come up with selections and it has certainly worked well for him over the years.

With Ben’s tips being provided for free, you really can’t do much better than following his golf tips with a record like he has established. Highly recommended.


8. Keith Elliott

Keith Elliott

Number eight on our list is perhaps the “doyen” of golf tipping, Keith Elliott. Author of over a dozen books on golf betting, Keith is perhaps most famous for his “nappy factor” theory – the idea that a player often performs better after they have had a child. This theory has been behind a number of Keith’s notable winners over the years and it would appear to have some validity.

Keith has a strong reputation as a golf tipster and is well known in the industry. In our live trial of his tips, we gave Keith a neutral rating, as although he finished slightly down at -16 points, that was only a 6% loss of the bank and there was a potentially profitable angle found during our trial.

Keith seems to have a real penchant for the big events – i.e. the majors and WGC events – where he has made over 300 points profit in these events in the last two years.

That has included picking five of six winners of the USPGA Championship in a great run of years:-

  • Jason Day at 14/1 in 2015
  • Rory McIlroy at 5/1  in 2014
  • Jason Dufner at 40/1 in 2013
  • Rory McIlroy again at 20/1 in 2012
  • Marin Kaymer at 50/1 in 2010.

The only one he didn’t pick was Keegan Bradley in 2011 – which of course was picked by Betting Bias at 150/1! So if you’d been following both of those tipsters you would have done pretty well in recent years on the PGA.

Keith also did well on the European Tour in the 2015 season, notching up 181 points of profit at a return on investment of 43% – a very good season’s work.

Our overall recommendation is to follow Keith in the big events where he has a good record. For us the jury is still out on his record in the regular tour events – but that is something to keep an eye on for the future.


9. The Golf Guru

Golf Guru

The Golf Guru is a tipster who was previously based at the (now defunct) Gambling System Reviews site but has since moved home to FTS Income.

More of a new kid on the block, the Golf Guru has only been tipping since 2014 so there are fewer results to go on than some of the other tipsters on this list, but nonetheless his record seemed worthy of consideration.

In 2014, the Guru managed to rack up 146 points of profit, which is pretty good going for a first year of tipping. His winners have included:

  • Victor Dubuisson at 40/1 at the Turkish Airlines Open in 2015
  • Kiradech Aphibarnrat at 35/1 in the  Shenzhen International in 2015
  • Brian Harman at 100/1 at the John Deere Classic in 2014
  • JB Holmes at 66/1 at the Wells Fargo in 2014
  • Hunter Mahan at 50/1 at the Barclays in 2014
  • Ross Fisher at 28/1 in the Tshwane Open in 2014

Sadly 2015 didn’t turn quite so well for the Golf Guru as 2014, as for the year he broke more or less even, ending up just two points down. So although that was no disaster by any means, it is not quite as impressive as some of the other names on this list.

It will be interesting to see how he gets on in 2016 and whether the Golf Guru can recapture the form of 2014 and move higher up our list.


10. Jeremy Chapman

Jeremy Chapman

One of the best known of all golf tipsters is the Racing Post’s main golf correspondent Jeremy Chapman. Having been around for a long time, Chapman has been tipping for over 20 years now and has earned a solid reputation as a tipster.

Although we haven’t reviewed his tips yet here at Honest Betting Reviews, we note another site followed his tips during 2015 and Jeremy amassed 11.7 points profit for the season, at a 2.6% return on investment. So in other words he more or less broke even but ended up with a small profit.

In previous years we followed Jeremy’s tips but never kept a formal record so can’t provide much additional comment other than to say we hadn’t found the tips to be particularly profitable. It is shame the Racing Post don’t publish a full record of their tipster’s tips, but perhaps that is asking too much.

Anyway, we always used to enjoy reading his column in the Racing Post and he did pick the occasional big-priced winner, so we thought a place on this list at number seven seemed reasonable.


11. Steve Palmer

Steve Palmer

The Racing Post’s junior golf correspondent is Steve Palmer, who regularly provides columns to accompany those of Jeremy Chapman, often covering the smaller tournaments or specialist events.

Palmer is perhaps best known for his book Born to Punt: Steve Palmer’s Betting Year, which is a highly entertaining look at the ups and downs of a regular punter trying to win big. One of the features of the book is Palmer’s attempts to hit the jackpot from his golf betting by putting on outrageous doubles of winners on the PGA and European tours each week at odds normally in the ‘000s to 1.

The goal behind this is that if he can win one of these (and at least £30,000 in the process) then he can quit his day job at the Racing Post and become a full-time professional punter. In his enigmatic style, Palmer refers to this as the “face-spitter” – a win so large you could quit your job and spit in your boss’s face in the process. Well, that might be taking it a bit far but then some people really don’t like their bosses…

Anyway, the book was published in 2011 and as yet we don’t think Steve has landed one of these big winners, but of course it only takes one – as any lottery winner will tell you…

Again sadly the Racing Post don’t publish the records of their tipsters, so we are unable to give an idea of how successful Palmer is over the long term. The only proofing we can find showed he made over 100 points profit over a six month period in 2012, but nothing more than that.

Overall our best guess from his own comments and those that follow the column is that Palmer more or less breaks even or makes a small profit, so not too bad but at the moment not worthy of higher consideration in our list of golf tipsters just yet.


12. Golf Punters Guide

Golf Punter's Guide

Completing our list at number ten is the Golf Punters’ Guide. It is a popular golf betting site that has been running for a number of years and offers free tips for the golf. 

The site was originally run by a guy called Sam who made a very nice 1200 points profit between 2011 and 2015 at a yield (ROI) averaging close to 40%.

It then had a chap called Chris providing the selections and he unfortunately made a loss of 340 points. The tips are now provided by another tipster called Simon who is aiming to replicate the feats of Sam and who has had a decent 2017. 

The approach is very selective with just 1-2 tips per tournament on average, so the workload in following Golf Punters’ Guide is minimal. 

With such phenomenal results achieved between 2011 and 2015, we thought it would be remiss not to include it as part of our list.



So there you have it – a list of our top twelve golf tipsters. Some of them provide tips for free, others charge a fee but all of them have proved themselves over a lengthy period of time. 

With golf tipsters it is worth bearing in mind that the strike rates tend to be much lower than with traditional horse racing and football tipsters. That means you need a larger betting bank and a good deal more patience, as there will be some long losing streaks and drawdowns, no matter how strong the tipster overall.

If you have the right mindset though and accept this from the outset, you can do very well following a top golf tipster like those we have listed above. Certainly it is a great feeling when they land one of their 100/1+ winners!

As ever, if you are going to follow a golf tipster then please gamble responsibly and only risk what you can afford to lose.





croatia vs england

Get Your England v Croatia Tips Here!

Well who would have thought it? England are in their first World Cup semi-final since 1990, when Margaret Thatcher was Prime Minister, Roxette topped the charts and mullets were still fashionable.

Some of you reading this may not even have been alive at the time but will probably have seen the footage from that semi-final in 1990, with Gary Lineker scoring a fine goal, Gazza crying after being booked and penalty misses from Stuart Pearce and Chris Waddle in the shoot-out.

That was a painful experience for England and is etched in the memory of those that saw it, but today the players have a chance to banish those memories and write a new chapter in England’s history.

Standing in their way are a tough Croatian side who have a world-class midfield pairing of Modric and Rakitic and a team that has shown a great deal of resilience throughout the tournament.

The bookies have England as slight favourites at a best price of 13/10 (2.3 in decimal odds), where as Croatia are priced at 2/1 (3.0) generally.

If you are looking for some tips for the semi-final, we can recommend:-

  • – Sports Spread Betting – a spread betting service that has made over 3,000 points profit since starting up last August. They made 600 points profit in June and are having a strong World Cup so far. They have some big selections for tonight’s game.
  • – Chloe’s Football Focus – has averaged over £400 profit per month to just £10 stakes with excellent consistency and over 35% return on investment. A strong 3 point win bet for tonight’s match.
  • – Football Advisor – over 500 points profit made across their services and an excellent long-term record. Have 3 tips lined up for the semi-final.

So some top services to choose from there and that should give you a decent edge heading into tonight’s game.

Good luck with your punting and let’s hope for some profitable punting and a cracking game this evening.

A Feast of Sports Betting

It really is a feast of enterainment at the moment for sports betting enthusiasts with the World Cup and Royal Ascot both in full swing.

It is rare to find a betting service that covers both soccer and horse racing – and even rarer to find one that does so profitably.

However, fortunately we have been following one for a while now that has managed to do this very successfully and it is called Football Advisor. We are currently reviewing their laying services for football and racing. 

The overall Football Advisor Portfolio has racked up some impressive stats over the last year, including:

– June is well on course to be their third profitable month in a row and 9th out of the last 11 months
– Half way through the month and they have generated 11.1 units profit
– In 10 1/2 months the full portfolio has generated 192.5 units profit with a near 50% strike rate over that time.

Their racing tips have been doing particularly well, with 30 units profit averaged per month over the last 3 months. That would be over £1,500 per month profit to £50 stakes.

Interestingly they just published an article showing how you could increase your profits on their racing tips by 36% by doing just one thing, which is well worth noting.

Now we know some of you are only interested in football tips and some are only interested in racing tips, but the good news is that with this service you can choose either – or both if you like.

And the even better news is that they are offering a massive discount of over 90% at the moment off your first month of tips – so for under £3.

– You can get the discount off their Racing Tips here.
– You can get the discount off their Football Tips here.
– Or get a discount to both here.

So if you are having a few punts on the World Cup and Royal Ascot make sure you don’t miss out on any more of Football Advisor’s impressive winners.





World Cup pic

Who will win the Football World cup 2018 in Russia?

The 2018 FIFA World Cup is underway with the first round of group games having just been completed. It is the 21st FIFA World Cup, and it is the eleventh final tournament held on the European soil.

So far, eight nations from two continents, Europe and South America, have managed to lift the most prestigious international football title on the planet, with Italy being the only previous World Cup winner that failed to secure their place in Russia.

In addition to the defending champions Germany, three more European-based former world champions including France, England, and Spain qualified for the final competition, as well as, all three South American teams, Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay.

All of the above-mentioned nations are widely recognized as principal candidates to win the 2018 FIFA World Cup alongside the likes of Belgium, and the current European champions, Portugal. However, considering the overall performance provided by a vast majority of these teams over the last year or so, Spain, France, Brazil, and Germany, are those who seem to have the most chances to return home with the prominent trophy in their hands.


The Selecao is the only nation in the history of the World Cup to feature in all the final tournaments, and they are always considered among the top favorites to win the prominent trophy. After Tite took charge of the national team, replacing Dunga on the bench, Brazil have only lost one match in almost two years, as their only defeat dates back to 2017, when they have been defeated by the arch-rivals, Argentina. Looking at Brazil’s performance throughout the qualification process, and considering the fact they topped the CONMEBOL qualifying zone in spite of the fierce competition, only confirm, their intention to lift the sixth World Cup title.


Although Argentina suffered a lot throughout the qualification competition, barely managing to secure their seventeenth World Cup appearance, the Albiceleste are among the top teams in the tournament, and the 2014 FIFA World Cup runners-up will try to move one step further pursuing their first World Cup title since 1986.

Captained by one of the best players of all time, Lionel Messi, Argentina will have their say at the final tournament in Russia despite the lack of top-class defenders. One of the most devastating attacking departments at the final competition will have to be at their best if looking to wrap-up Argentina’s third World Cup title.


The 2010 FIFA World Cup winners have been dominating their qualifying group from the beginning to the very end. Led by the likes of Diego Costa, Andres Iniesta, Isco, and David Silva, the Red Fury have topped Group G in style, winning nine of ten matches with a stunning +33 goal difference, allowing their opponents to score barely three goals during the process.

Despite the fact, Spain lost the head coach, Julen Lopetegui, a few days before their opening match, the chemistry that exists between the players and game philosophy will hardly break in such a critical moment for Spanish football. The famous tiki-taka style of play is something that adorns this team for years, and with potential Spain possess within their respective ranks, everything should remain in place for the big tournament.


The World Cup title holders, Germany, are known as a competitive team that knows how to play big competitions, and with the experience and confidence they have, it’s not impossible they succeed to win the second consecutive World Cup title, something only Brazil and Italy managed to do in the past. Die Mannschaft have stormed through their respective qualifying group, winning all ten matches with a +39 goal difference, displaying some outstanding performance during the process.

Joachim Low, the same coach that brought Germany their first World Cup title since the reunification, will lead the team from the bench again, and although he decided not to include Leroy Sane in the list of travelers, those players that will play in Russia, have an extensive experience, and a lot of international football in their legs. 

As one of the most anticipated sporting events this year, the 2018 FIFA World Cup will be closely followed by millions of fans across the world, and for those who would like to test their luck and bet on their favorite teams, coral betting offers exceptional odds and guarantees the ultimate complacency. Bookies can redeem new customer £20 free bet offer as they sign up for the first time. All the World Cup’s best bets can be found here. Although Asian and African national teams never managed to advance to the World Cup Final, this summer’s World Cup edition may emerge as the first ever to host a nation from the AFC or CAF continental confederation, especially with the appearance of Senegal and Egypt that both own immense potential within their respective ranks.

Get Your Free Royal Ascot Tips!

It’s Royal Ascot this week and it looks set to be a fantastic week’s racing with a host of different storylines unfolding.

On the one hand you have Frankie Dettori returning after missing 2017 with a shoulder injury and this year he saddles Cracksman in the Prince of Wales Stakes on Wednesday amongst some other cracking rides as he looks to add to his 56 wins at Royal Ascot.  

Then you have the battle between Aiden O’Brien’s Coolmore stud and the mighty Godolphin, which is looking like being hotter than ever this year. 

And the Queen will be looking to add to her 23 wins at the Royal meeting and her best chance looks to be the Sir Michael Stoute-trained Elector.

If you are looking for free tips for the week, here are a few sources we can highly recommend:

  • Betting Gods – a highly respected website providing free tips for those who sign up plus there are a range of paid tipsters, with some excellent records of profit accumulated
  • Tipster Street – another high quality site provding both free tips – which made over £530 per month to just £10 stakes in 2015 – plus a number of paid tipsters
  • Betting Bias – a free tipping website with a record of over 1500 points profit since being established in 2011.

There will also be some cracking bookies’ offers to take advantage over the week, so some great potential to make a few quid.

The only downside to this year’s festivities could be the weather, which is set to be a little unsettled.

Even so, it should be great entertainment and with such high quality horses from all over the world competing, should be compulsive viewing. 

Good luck with your betting over the week. 





Wimbledon tennis

Winning on the Grass Courts this Season

The clay court season is almost over and the start of the European summer signals the start of the grass court season. It’s out with Roland Garros and the red clay and in with Wimbledon and the pristinely cut grass courts of the All England Club. The two surfaces are very different and often throw up vastly different winners, which means punters shouldn’t expect the likes of Rafa Nadal to keep on dominating.

Rafa sprint” (CC BY-SA 2.0) by Carine06

The Spaniard is the without a doubt the King of Clay and the very best to have ever graced any clay court. Nadal hasn’t missed out during the current clay season and has picked up multiple wins already, including the Barcelona Open and Italian Open. With the changing of the surfaces comes a change in champion and the world will now be eagerly awaiting Roger Federer’s return.

Federer took the entire clay season off to save himself for the upcoming tests on grass and will have an extra spring in his step when he returns. It remains to be seen whether Nadal can wrestle away the initiative Federer has on grass but what is certain is a titanic battle awaits over the summer months. The clash of these titans is just one of the many games punters will have the pleasure of predicting over the summer with a whole host of tournaments about to get underway.

Calling the action between the worlds best and the rest is still fairly straightforward no matter what surface it is on. Until the round of 16 or even quarter-finals arrives, it is pretty easy to punt on the right winner with the gap in tennis between the top and bottom the widest of any sport. There isn’t much value in predicting Federer beating a player like Jared Donaldson, and that’s why having an understanding of the best tennis betting strategies can still provide a healthy profit in one-sided contests. There is far more than that what meets the eye once you’re up to date with all the unique offerings bookies provide.

Wimbledon Final” (CC BY 2.0) by Georgio

It is a lot harder to call games between big players when the business end of the tournament comes around and given that most of the tournament is made up of getting there, it’s wise to adopt a sound tennis betting strategy. Of course, the beauty of tennis is that a punt won’t be scuppered by a draw like with football or cricket. That’s what makes it so popular, but delving a bit deeper into the markets reveals a world of opportunity.

Betting on points is a fast-paced way of calling the action and gives value to the underdog especially when serving as a player is most likely to win the game on a serve, but the same can apply to the heavy favourite. Predicting when the top-seeded player will break his opponent’s serve is certainly one way of upping the ante, as it’s only a matter of time in unevenly matched fixtures.

In other examples, punters know Rafa Nadal is going to take Robin Haase of the Netherlands to the cleaners on most occasions. Backing the Spaniard doesn’t provide the most appeal given the odds, but calling the number of sets he wins in gives far more value and makes for compelling viewing of an otherwise dull affair. These are just a few ways of finding the right punt on ties that are decided before they get going.

Tennis punters will be served up a feast of action over the summer, and it may not just be the likes of Nadal, Djokovic or Federer that win with the number of countless betting markets on offer.

Holy Grail Horse Racing System – Results Update

It’s been a good start to our trial of the Holy Grail Horse Racing System, with 11 points profit made so far after just under a month of testing.

You can view full results here.

Those results are without Best Odds Guaranteed (BOG) being applied too, so with that being used the results could be a fair bit better.

It is worth bearing in mind that everyone will get different results with this as it churns out bets all the time, so it depends when you log on and how many bets you take each day.

So our results are just a representative example of what could be achieved. Some people may have hit more profit by taking more bets over the same period. 

Anyway, we will continue to track this for a while longer – certainly until we have the minimum 100 bets in any event before wrapping up our review.









Holy Grail Horse Racing System – New Review

15th May 2018

We have recently been contacted about a new mathematically-based betting strategy that claims it could be the holy grail of horse racing systems.  

Whilst recording the results using small stakes it apparently made £2274.29 profit in just six weeks.

Now normally we would be sceptical about claims like this but it comes from betting systems expert Mike Cruickshank, generally known as the original matched betting guru and whose strategies we have great respect for, many of which have received passed ratings here on the site.

The results above are from a sample of 4000 bets, so a pretty big simple size, meaning it probably wasn’t just a fluke. 

Mike has made a short presentation were he shares the strategy and his results spreadsheet, which you can view here.

There is a 14 day trial available for just £1, so you can test it out for yourself first before deciding whether to go ahead with purchasing the full system for £99 + VAT. 

Now Mike is going to be limiting sales of this so it doesn’t become overly used and lose its edge, so we can’t run a full three month review because it’s likely to sell out well before then.

But we will run a short test over the next few weeks and see how we get on. 

This does look very promising and the logic behind it seems sound, plus according to Mike it doesn’t risk bookie account closures as much as some other systems. 

So it could well be the “Holy Grail” of horse racing systems – let’s hope so anyway!

We will update our short trial of it here in a few weeks’ time and see if it lives up to the billing.

In the meantime you can check out the Holy Grail Horse Racing Strategy here.

Best World Cup Betting Tips

The 2018 World Cup is being held in Russia from 14th June to 15th July and it is set to be a cracking tournament with the best players in the world getting ready to do battle.

The betting for the tournament is very open, with Brazil narrowly edging favouritism at 9/2 going into the competition from Germany who are priced at 5/1. You can check out the full odds here. 

There is expected to be an absolute bonanza of gambling on this Summer’s event, with over $1 billion anticipated to be wagered on the World Cup.

However, it is not necessarily easy to make a profit from betting on the World Cup and the simple facts are that most punters lose money from their gambling in the long run.

To give yourself the best chance of making a decent return from the tournament, you want to arm yourself with the best advice and follow those who have a track record of success.

To that end, we have compiled a list of what we believe are the best betting tips for the World Cup, based on over a hundred reviews of betting systems and tipsters we have done here at Honest Betting Reviews over the last few years.

So take a look at the list below and make sure you don’t fall foul of dodgy tipsters or poor quality tips for this year’s tournament, but instead focus on those most likely to find you some winners.


Best World Cup Betting Tips

So here we go with our list of the top five best World Cup Betting Tips from number five down to the number one best tipster. Please let us know if there are any you think we have missed out!


   5. Sports Spread Betting

Spread betting is somewhat of a niche when it comes to sports gambling, but that shouldn’t be viewed as a negative – it can actually be a good thing. 

Whilst most punters overlook spread betting as a source of income, there is great potential value to be found in utilising its specialist markets.

One service that has done this very successfully is Sports Spread Betting. We reviewed this service back in December last year and it made a hugely impressive 750 points profit during our trial.

We have continued to track the results and they have now made nearly 2,500 points profit in total since starting, putting them up there with the very best services we have reviewed.

To prepare for the World Cup they have spent countless hours over the past months preparing statistics from the qualifying stages (and elsewhere) to enable the service to take full advantage during this month.

They are confident in having a profitable World Cup, and are aiming to make in excess of 1,000 points profit by the time the final comes around on 15 July.

That is an ambitious target but based on past results isn’t out of the realms of possibility.

The nice thing about the service is that they provide a guarantee of a full refund for any month that doesn’t make at least 25 points profit.

So if you are planning to have a few wagers on the tournament make sure you don’t miss out on the expert advice of Sports Spread Betting and some potentially huge profits.

You can check out Sports Spread Betting here.



   4. Premier Football Investments

Premier Football Investments is a partnership between John Baker, founder of the award-winning football betting advisory service Banker-Bets, and Carlo Manzoni, a full-time betting professional and part-time music teacher based in Rome.

The service has managed a profit of 24 units since starting up, which represents a capital growth of 94%. This year has been particularly strong for Premier Football Investments, with over 10 units profit and four profitable months out of five. That includes an excellent May with 6.81 points profit and an 18% return on investment.

They have some big bets lined up for the World Cup so with their current form as strong as it is this could be a service to be part of for the big event. 

And to celebrate the World Cup they are offering 80% off the normal subscription for the first month, so you can get your first month of tips for just £4.95. 

You can check out Premier Football Investments here. 



  3. Profit Maximiser

Although strictly speaking not providing “tips” as such, Profit Maximiser should be an essential part of any punter’s armoury during the World Cup. 

Essentially Profit Maximiser is a package that brings together all of the bookies’s free bet and bonus offers in one place and tells you how to exploit these to make risk-free or low-risk profit, time after time.

This process is called “matched betting” and Profit Maximiser is really the original – and in our opinion best – matched betting package out there.

The World Cup will be a veritable feast of free bets and bonuses, with the bookies lining up to try and get our custom with spectacular offers during the tournament.

Profit Maximiser will bring you all of these offers every day of the World Cup, so you could make literally hundreds of pounds of low-risk profit. 

You could then just pocket the extra cash or use some of it to fund your other bets on the World Cup, but either way it’s really a no-brainer to be signed up.

And with a 14 day trial for just £1 to test it out, there’s really nothing to lose with Profit Maximiser.



   2. Football Advisor

At number two we have the Football Advisor, a respected tipster who has been providing selections on football for a number of years and has an excellent tipping record in major tournaments.  

The Football Advisor provides both back and lay tips for football, with the former having made over 230 points profit and the latter an excellent 283 points profit since the services started, so combined the tips have made over 500 points profit overall. That would be over £50,000 profit to £100 stakes. 

The great thing about the lay tips is that they have a strike rate of over 84%, meaning the vast majority of selections are profitable.

They also have an excellent record on major football tournaments, having made a massive 70 points profit on the 2014 World Cup and picking Portugal to win Euro 2016 at 14/1.

In addition to providing tips for the big tournaments, they also have an excellent World Cup Betting Guide which includes a wealth of stats and betting advice. Followers of the guide went on to make a massive £1,750 profit to £25 stakes at the last World Cup. 

So overall Football Advisor is one of the most respected and profitable football tipsters out there and with a top-class record on the World Cup is a must-have for this Summer’s tournament.

You can check out the Football Advisor here and their World Cup Betting Guide here. 



   1. The Football Guru

At number one we have the Football Guru, a football tipster who has made an excellent £6,000 profit to just £10 stakes since starting tipping in late 2015.

They have averaged a return on investment of close to 10%, which is excellent stuff in over two and a half years of tipping at an impressive strike rate of over 40%.

The service is headed by a professional football bettor called Anthony who does very extensive research into the football betting markets. His tips cover match outcome, teams to score, tournament winners, accumulators and much more.

The service also has quite an affinity for landing some huge priced accumulator bets, including a Goliath at over 60/1 which made many followers over £1,000 profit in just one go.

With a full 30-day money back guarantee, over £200 per month average profit to just £10 stakes and a 10-day trial available for just £1, there is a great deal to like about the Football Guru.

Plus he has some massive gambles lined up for the World Cup, so this is not a service to miss out on for this Summer’s big tournament in Russia.

You can check out the Football Guru here.



Conclusion – Top World Cup Betting Tips

So there you have it, our top five football tipsters for the World Cup. 

It should be a cracking tournament and hopefully arming yourself with some of the tools above should guide you towards profit this Summer – and beyond. 

If you are going to have some wagers on the World Cup, please remember to gamble responsibly and only risk what you can afford to lose.

Good luck and here’s hoping for a profitable World Cup!
