Dave Nevison

Dave Nevison – Professional Gambler Making 100 Grand A Year

Dave Nevison – gambler, professional tipster, TV personality and author, has made a comfortable living from horseracing. He is now approaching his sixtieth year and is still picking the winners.  

As he states in his book “A Bloody Good Winner” when Dave Nevison wins, he loves to celebrate, which means drinking, dancing and, more often than not, singing. Standing on and falling off tables is also a common occurrence. After all, not every day is a winning day, so when they do happen it is, he says, essential to make the best of them. He admits to having a big ego, claiming that he is the best punter out there.

Nevison has been a big advocate of tissue pricing, a form of value betting that assigns a probability of the horse winning based on multiple factors and compares this with the probability indicated by the betting odds. When the tissue price is lower than the bookmaker’s odds, the bookmaker could be underestimating the likelihood of a win, so placing a bet is indicated. It has certainly worked for him, earning him over £100,000 a year from gambling.

Nevison has not always been a professional gambler. His previous life was as a city banker until in 1993 he abandoned it for a more hedonistic lifestyle on the racecourse. He frequently travelled from course to course, a lifestyle that took a toll on his marriage, especially when, as he said, “There are loads of women wandering around wanting to meet a man in a suit who’s got money in his pocket.”

As he also points out though, don’t underestimate the sheer hard work of making a good living from gambling. Typically, his days would begin a 4.00 am, and much of his time would be spent studying the form book. He would price up every race himself and look seriously at any opportunity where the price was 15% higher than he made it. While his strike rate was not high, it was enough to guarantee a good long term profit. Playing for Value rather than for winners, often he would back more than one runner in a race. 

Nevison has been known to place bets of £2,000 per race

Losing runs, or at least being able to handle them, is always a problem. However, his experience is they tend to be short-lived as he covered so many options. It was a rare day in which he failed to back at least one winner. His typical bet was around £2,000 a race. His preferred races are up to a mile handicap events as it is easier to understand how the race will be run and which horse is likely to win it. It is challenging, he says, making a profit on group races. Spotting winners is easy, especially late season, but making a profit is far more complicated.

Over recent years Nevison has been turning his attention to other activities. He has recently celebrated his 58th birthday and maintains that betting is a young man’s sport. He certainly wishes to avoid “putting he head on the block” during his sixties. Today writing books, running websites and providing tips is more his lifestyle.

One concern he has regarding the future is the burgeoning presence of artificial intelligence and machine learning and the impact they are likely to have on the tipster industry. Does he intend to incorporate these latest technological advances in his professional tipping service to deliver the best possible advice to his paying clients? It has been claimed that tipsters who fail to keep up with these advances will become dinosaurs. Algorithms are achieving a strike rate approaching 40%. Time will tell.

In addition to “A Bloody Good Winner”, Nevison has also written, “No Easy Money” in which he describes in more detail how he calculates tissue odds for each race. It is, he explains, all a matter of getting your percentages right rather than finding a winner.

Dave Nevison’s advice to young punters who hope to make a successful career as a professional gambler is to specialise. Select one branch of racing, stick to it, be patient and learn all you can about it until you become a master of It. That way, you can be optimistic about earning enough to enjoy a very comfortable lifestyle.

Best Tennis Betting Sites

Tennis is one of the most popular sports to bet on in the world and there are matches nearly all year round. Of course the four grand slams events take centre stage, but there are also weekly events on the ATP and WTA tours that attract top players and huge amounts of betting interest. 

This is good news for those fancying a punt on the tennis but it is important not to just bet on a whim or on players you may happen to like. Success in tennis betting – just as with any other form of betting – requires a clear strategy, a good deal of work and a method that has an edge over the bookies. 

Fortunately there are a number of good websites out there that can help with your tennis betting and we have made it our job over the last few years to try and find the best ones. 

So below we will take a look at the best tennis betting sites, including a mixture of stats sites, tipsters, betting strategies and more. 


Our Top 5 Tennis Betting Sites

There are a whole host of tennis betting sites out there and not all of them are helpful. There are some selling dodgy tips and information which we would not recommend following. However, there are a few gems that can really aid your tennis betting, whether you are looking to follow a tried and tested expert or develop your own strategies. 

Here are our top 5 tennis betting sites in ascending order:-


5. Tennis Insight

One of our favourite sites for stats and information on both men’s and women’s tennis is the excellent Tennis Insight. Including a host of useful info such as match previews, head to head records, tournament features and much more it is a very comprehensive resource for researching your picks. 

Of particular interest are the stats around serving and returning percentages for each surface, which is vital if you are looking to trade certain strategies such as back the server, lay the server etc. They also allow members of the site to post their own tips for matches and everyone who does has a record of success (or failure), so you can see who is doing well and can choose to follow them if you like.

All in all Tennis Insight is a very good site and well worth visiting for some research and study before making your picks.


4. Tennis Goldmine

An all round of package including a tennis betting system plus trading and betting tips, Tennis Goldmine comes from renowned tennis expert Patrick Ross. The principal part of the package is the betting system which involves laying players who fit particular criteria. It produced good results during our live trial and is a slow, solid way to grow your betting bank. 

Another part of Tennis Goldmine is Patrick’s betting tips and Spartan Trading Tips, which have both made impressive long-term profits. In terms of the trading tips, they have reached a total of 1500 points profit from a starting bank of 100, which is very good going. Patrick Ross has been a respected name in tennis betting for a number of years and has the results to back it up so if you are looking for a package that covers both betting and trading on tennis, this is well worth a look.


3. Tennis Ratings

Although the website itself may look pretty basic, don’t let that put you off as there as some valuable resources contained within Tennis Ratings. We originally came across the site via the excellent book “Mastering Tennis Trading” by Dan Weston, who also runs the site. It’s one of the best guides we’ve read on tennis trading and contains strategies, data and worked examples of trades. 

Mr Weston is a respected figure in the world of tennis betting, having previously written for Pinnacle and the Eastbridge sports betting broker. The site itself includes a host of useful articles on tennis betting and trading which should be an aid to anyone looking to improve their returns on the game. There are also records of his own pre-match betting model for the ATP and WTA tours, both of which show a good profit to date. There is even a YouTube channel with some video examples of trades. 

If you are interested in taking things further and trading on a regular basis then for a fee there are daily spreadsheets which give you the basis of potential trades to make for the day’s matches based on stats and past performances, highlighting players’ strengths and weaknesses and where profitable trading opportunities may lie. 


2. The Goat

Next on our list is the interestingly-named “The Goat.” We presume this is a reference to “Greatest Of All Time” rather than the animal, however with a picture of a goat on their profile we are not sure. Either way it’s a very good tennis tipping service with over 150 points profit made to date and a healthy strike rate of just under 50%, meaning nearly half the bets have been winners thus far. 

Bets come in a variety of markets including match odds, Asian handicap games and Asian handicap sets and also double and treble bets in addition to singles. 

Whatever the real story behind the name, The Goat is an impressive tennis betting service. 


1. Tee and Serve Tips

The top tennis site we have come across is the excellent tipping service Tee and Serve Tips. Whilst strictly speaking not just a tennis service as it does include golf tips as well (hence the name), its tennis selections are second to none and the results it has achieved have been excellent. 

With an average return of over £400 per month to £10 stakes at a return on investment of 17%, it has shown a clear edge over the market. In less than a year they managed to grow the starting bank by over 150%, which is no mean feat. 

The tennis tips focus mainly on set betting, with favourites who are fancied to win by two sets to nil often given in doubles to provide good odds, aswell as in singles. If you are looking for a service providing top quality tips so you don’t have to do all the research and work yourself then Tee and Serve Tips would be a strong choice. 



So there you have it, our list of the best tennis betting sites we have come across through our extensive research and testing. All of these should aid you in your quest to make some profit from the game, whether you are betting, trading or doing both. With the wealth of information, stats and expert advice available online nowadays, punters are better armed than ever to take on the bookies. 

As ever, if you are going to wager some money on the tennis then please gamble responsibly and only risk money you can afford to lose. 






Members’ Choice Awards – Best Matched Betting Service 2019

So we move on to the penultimate in our series of awards voted for by you the members of Honest Betting Reviews. 

This time it is the turn of Best Matched Betting Service 2019 and this was a very close run thing – the closest of all our awards in fact. 

Matched betting has been very popular over the last five years or so and it is one of the very few ways of ensuring you can beat the bookies over the long term. The bookies have of course become wiser to it over time and so the methods used have had to become more sophisticated.

Hence you now have some very impressive matched betting products all attempting to outdo each other, with software, live odds portals, calculators and all sorts of other tools for aspiring matched bettors. 

So it is perhaps not surprising that this year’s voting was so close and there was very little to separate the top three choices.

Anyway, without further ado let’s have a look at how the voting went. 

In third place was Profit Accumulator from Sam Stoffel, which has high ratings on Trust Pilot and was also a popular choice with you guys. 

Coming in second place and just missing out on top spot was the renowned Oddsmonkey, which made £1,045 in our review of it back in 2017 and has gone from strength to strength since then. 

But which service took top slot this year? 

Best Matched Betting Service 2019

Well this year’s winner is no stranger to regular followers and also won this award last year. Yes the winner was…

Profit Maximiser!

Congratulations to Mike Cruickshank, the developer of Profit Maximiser and generally known as the “doyen of matched betting.”

As we say, the voting was very close, with just a few percent separating the top three choices. Here is how the voting went:-

  1. 1. Profit Maximiser (28.81% of the votes)
  2. 2. Oddsmonkey (27.12%)
  3. 3. Profit Accumulator (25.42%)

So a tight affair but Profit Maximiser just edged the award this year. Here is what Mike had to say on receiving news of the win:

“That’s awesome. Thanks to all the HBR users who voted for Profit Maximiser.

PM is over 6 years old now, it’s great to see that it’s still relevant & popular! It’s great to see users are doing so well with it.

I can’t take all the credit myself. The forum users who share offers, loopholes and post the best bets really help turn a good product in to a fantastic one.

I’ve got some exciting plans for Profit Maximiser over the next 12 months! Stay tuned for more information on that shortly.”

Well done to Mike on the win and we look forward to seeing what he’s got in store for PM members this year. 

In the meantime you can get a 14 day trial of Profit Maximiser for just £1 here.

Members’ Choice Awards – Best Sports System 2019

Next up in our series of the HBR Members’ Choice Awards is the accolade of Best (Other) Sports System 2019. 

So far we have had the award of Best Horse Racing Service which went to Quentin Franks Racing and the Best Football Service which went to Goal Profits. 

Now it is the turn of those services that either focus on sports other than the “big two” of horse racing and football, or combine a range of sports into one service.

This can include anything from golf to tennis, cricket, NFL, darts and more. So it is quite a wide playing field and this was a competitive category. 

It is often in these more niche services that you find the best value however, so it is a category to keep an eye on.  

But without further ado, let’s have a look at the results. 

Following up their third place from last year with the same position this year was the renowned Golf Betting Expert. Having amassed over £10,000 at an ROI of 24% in his four years of tipping, he has built a solid following and it is good to see his consistent excellence recognised here in the voting. 

In second place was last year’s winner, Sports Spread Betting. A niche service that focuses on the spread betting markets on football, horse racing and cricket, they have amassed over 4,000 points profit since starting up in 2017 and it remains popular with those who have the tolerance for the high variance involved in spread betting. 

So now we move on to the winner of this year’s award.

Best (Other) Sports Service 2019

This year’s winner is a relative new kid on the block but has really impressed us during our live trial of their service and has obviously been a big hit with you guys as well. 

Yes the winner of this year’s award is…

Trade On Sports!

As we say they have been flying along in our review with over £6,000 profit made on their football bot, but they also provide tips and stats across a range of other sports including tennis, NFL and ice hockey so it’s quite a comprehensive service.

Here are the final result for this year’s award:-

  1. 1. Trade On Sports (28% of the votes)
  2. 2. Sports Spread Betting (24%)
  3. 3. Golf Betting Expert (16%). 

So congratulations to the whole team at TOS on the win. We feel like they are one of the internet’s best kept secrets so it is good to see them getting some credit for their hard work through this award.

Here is what Pete Nordsted from Trade On Sports had to say on receiving news of the award:

“We are delighted and humbled to win this award as there are many good services available. Our members can be assured that we will be doing everything we can to ensure that we have another very profitable year.”

Well done again to Pete and his team and that wraps up this year’s award for Best (Other) Sports Service 2019. 

We’ll be back soon with the next award in the series, Best Matched Betting Service.

How 2020 Champion Hurdle Contenders Fared over Christmas

Under normal circumstances, punters and tipsters alike pick up plenty of Cheltenham Festival clues over the Christmas period. Top National Hunt racing takes place both in the UK and Ireland, but this year the festive season leaves more questions than answers.

Nowhere is this more so than in the 2020 Champion Hurdle betting. Already an open division, trying to make sense of it all after contenders disappointed on both sides of the Irish Sea is tough.

This is what happened over Christmas and what you can glean from the festive jumps action ahead of the Champion Hurdle in March.

Champion Hurdle” (CC BY-SA 2.0) by Carine06


Epatante emerges as market leader

JP McManus is the most successful owner in Champion Hurdle history. The legendary Irish gambler lost last year’s winner Espoir D’Allen to a freak accident on the gallops and dual victor Buveur D’Air is very unlikely to be back this season following an injury to his hoof in the Fighting Fifth at Newcastle.

Thank heavens for the latter’s Nicky Henderson stable companion Epatante, then, who has made rapid progress during the campaign so far. A lightly-raced French import to his Seven Barrows yard, this mare by No Risk At All was a leading fancy for the Grade 2 Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle at the last Cheltenham Festival but only came ninth.

Epatante may have been too inexperienced off just two outings over the obstacles for that test. A Grade 1 bumper winner in France, she landed a Listed intermediate contest at Newbury before taking the Christmas Hurdle at Kempton in impressive style.

This sudden progress comes as young Henderson stable inmates Fusil Raffles and Pentland Hills struggle in open company after fine juvenile campaigns. Epatante is now as short as 5/2 for Champion Hurdle glory in the spring.

Saldier and Sharjah benefit from disappointing Klassical Dream.

Leopardstown’s Christmas Festival in Ireland culminated in the Grade 1 Matheson Hurdle which Sharjah won for the second consecutive season in a race where last year’s Supreme victor Klassical Dream flopped again. Drying ground was a key factor for the winner.

Irish champion trainer Willie Mullins obviously has a strong hand in the Champion Hurdle division. Sharjah has been cut to 7/1 in the horse racing odds available on this race with bet365. The Matheson result also pays a compliment to Saldier – another in the stable owned by Rich and Susannah Ricci.

That horse beat Sharjah, Petit Mouchoir and Klassical Dream in the Morgiana Hurdle at Punchestown earlier in the season. Saldier has missed the Christmas period with a slight setback, but is a 6/1 chance to take the 2020 Champion Hurdle.

Klassical Dream has now twice been a beaten favourite in both starts since his fabulous novice campaign. An inability to settle in the preliminaries, coupled with errors over the obstacles, suggests something is amiss with this talented Dream Well gelding.

With Klassical Dream eased out to 10/1 in the Champion Hurdle betting, others with sounder temperaments have attracted more market support. Coeur Sublime – a Gordon Elliott trained contemporary of Fusil Raffles and Pentland Hills – also failed to follow-up on his impressive Down Royal exploits in the Matheson, leaving rival Mullins with the much stronger Champion Hurdle team.






members choice awards 2019

Members Choice Awards – Best Football Service 2019

During December we gave you the chance to vote for your favourite betting systems of the year in our “Members Choice Awards 2019.”

The first winner was announced last week with Quentin Franks Racing capturing the title of Best Horse Racing Service 2019. 

Now it is the turn of the Best Football Service and this year there was a runaway winner with the top choice getting nearly twice as many votes as the runner-up.

Yes there was a clear favourite in this category proving very popular with members. Before getting on to the winner however, let’s have a look at which services filled the places this year. 

Well in third place was the Football Betting Expert from the Betting Gods platform of tipsters, which has so far averaged £122 profit per month to £10 stakes. 

In second place was the respected Football Acca Tipster, also from the Betting Gods platform, which racked up a profit in six of the last seven months and has proven a hit with those punters who enjoy an acca or two on the footy. 

Best Football Service 2019

But which service grabbed the top spot?

Well the service in question has won quite a few other awards (including this award last year) so it’s probably not too much of a surprise that it won our award for Best Football Service this year aswell.

Yes, the winner was the hugely popular football trading service…

Goal Profits!

They seem to pick up awards for fun and have done it yet again, as we say with nearly twice as many votes as the next best. 

Here is the top three in our awards together with the percentage of the vote they received:

  1. 1. Goal Profits (30.65%)
  2. 2. Football Acca Tipster (16.13%)
  3. 3. Football Betting Expert (11.29%)

A huge congratulations then to Goal Profits on sweeping another award and it was well deserved judging by all the feedback we have had on the service.

And the really great news is they are currently offering a 7 day trial for just £1 which you can access here. 

Here is what Steve Brown of Goal Profits had to say on receiving news of the award:

“Thank you so much to everyone who voted for Goal Profits!

We were delighted to win the award for “Best Football System” in 2018 and to repeat that win is amazing! The entire GP team deserve huge credit as I certainly couldn’t do it all on my own while our football trading community continues to grow at a record pace.

Now that Kevin and I have help from Paul, we’re able to put our time into giving members much more value. For example, we recently held a free trading workshop for members which was a big success and we’re looking forward to more of them. We even had members flying in from Europe to take part in the live trading session which was a lot of fun (and very profitable).

Our trading tools were already the best on the planet (by far) and we improved them further during 2019. As well as identifying profitable opportunities which would otherwise be missed, the tools save massive amounts of time. For example, Custom Shortlist Pro allows you to build (and save) your own selection filters, then it scans the fixture list for up to a week in advance and displays your shortlist. Once fixtures kick-off, you can set alerts in our Live Stats Module and let it keep an eye on every fixture for you. Doing all of this manually used to take hours upon hours, but that very hard work has become REALLY quick and easy!

Looking ahead to 2020, we have huge plans! We’re already working on new features for our Live Stats Module and, of course, the European Championships. I’m sure we’ll put on another workshop for members and there are more strategies in development as well.

It’s a very exciting time for Goal Profits members and we’re looking forward to welcoming more new traders to our community very soon.

Thank you again for all your votes and good luck with your trading!”

So it is just left for us to say well done once again to Goal Profits on being voted Best Football Service of 2019 and we hope for continued success from them next year as they develop their service even more.

If you aren’t already a member you can get a week’s trial of Goal Profits for just £1 here.

Members Choice Awards – Best Horse Racing Service 2019

We hope you had a good Christmas and have now recovered from all the festivities. As 2019 draws to a close, we have been running a contest to choose the best betting products of 2019, as voted for by you in our Members’ Choice Awards 2019.

The voting closed on Christmas Eve and we would like to say thank you to everyone who participated.

The votes have now been counted and we are pleased to announce the first award in our series – Best Horse Racing Service 2019.

Best Horse Racing Service 2019

It was a very competitive contest with some great services to choose from but the winner emerged with a clear lead in the end and that was…

Quentin Franks Racing!

Yes it is perhaps not a surprise to our regular followers that Quentin came out on top in our awards, with the kind of profits he has amassed not just this year but over the last few years, with over £14,000 profit made to £10 stakes since he began tipping. 

It’s been yet another stellar year for Quentin with 220 points profit made in 2019 (with a few days to go) and we can understand why he is so popular with members.

Honourable mentions in our awards also go to runner-up Little Acorns, who also finished second last year and Exponential Bet who finished third. 

Final Rankings – Best Horse Racing Service 2019:

  1. 1. Quentin Franks Racing
  2. 2. Little Acorns
  3. 3. Exponential Bet

So the spoils go to Mr Franks and here is what the man himself had to say on receiving news of the award: 

“It’s an honour to have been announced as 2019’s best horse racing service. I thank the members of Honest Betting Reviews for their votes, and for the support of my members past and present, and to Betting Gods for hosting my service on their platform.

My service will enter it’s 6th year of operation in 2020 so it’s both a great close to the year and decade as I strive to continue the proven profits for many more years to come.

Thank you all again.”

And here is what Darren, the Director of Betting Gods which hosts Quentin’s service had to say about the award:

“I was delighted to hear the news of Quentin winning this award. I’ve known him now for several years, and he is the most genuine, professional guy I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet.

Nobody cares more about delivering success for his members than Quentin. He’s a pleasure to work with, and naturally as a company we’re incredibly proud that we have been able to have his service under the Betting Gods brand for the entirely of our company’s operation.

Congratulations to Quentin, this is well deserved and we look forward to working with you for many years to come.”

So that wraps up our first award and well done again to Quentin Franks. We’ll be back soon with the next award in the series. 

You can get a 7-day trial of Quentin Franks Racing for just £1 here.

Latest 2020 Cheltenham Races News and Updates

We are only a few days away from the next decade of 2020, and the Cheltenham Festival 2020 keeps getting closer. Top horses and jockeys are expected to take part in the horse-racing event with bookmakers looking to take advantage of the event to welcome punters with attractive betting offers. It is a big sporting event in the UK, which is perhaps only rivaled by the Grand National. The event offers an opportunity for horse racing enthusiasts’ to enjoy what they love.

The Cheltenham Festival isn’t just a horse racing event but a festival that brings together people from diverse backgrounds from various corners of the world. Since the event’s small beginnings, it has steadily grown over the years and now it takes place for almost one week.

Betting lovers – which is best? Online betting or in a shop?

With the Cheltenham Festival coming up next year punters are gearing up for the opportunity it will offer them to try their luck on some bets. There will be various types of horse races available for punters to choose to bet on.

So which kind of betting is perfect for this prestigious sporting event? There are usually two types of bets available either online betting or in-shop betting. Well it depends on which type of betting you find perfect for you but going by analysis, https://www.freebets.co.uk/cheltenham-festival-free-bets/ usually offers numerous benefits and advantages to punters.

Here are some of the amazing benefits that come with online betting:

  • – You get to enjoy introductory free bets as well as bonus offers that you won’t get in a betting shop.
  • – A number of online bookmakers will offer you ¼ odds you won’t get this from an in-shop bet.
  • – When you win, you get instant payouts unlike an in-store bet that you need to collect the prize won in person.
  • – Crucial information available such as form, stats, and even news items available from top betting websites which you can access with just a click.
  • – There is a variety of funding options available for you.
  • – You get to watch races live on bookmakers that provide live streaming.
  • – You get to see a complete bet history and therefore no chance that you lost unfairly due to be being scammed.

So, when is it best to bet, ante-post or the day of action?

Generally, horserace betting on the day of the race is much more secure than ante-post betting. Betting on the day of the race comes with the most security because non-runner no bet (NRNB) and the best odds guarantee (BOG) usually apply as a standard. You will not get these features as an ante-post wager. The other benefit of same day wagering is that you get to save yourself the misfortune of wagering on a horse that may end up not running after all.

Well, placing bets on the Cheltenham Festival is quite different from the other regular horse race betting. Because the event is a prestigious one, many leading bookmakers often provide additional ante-post betting benefits that they usually don’t offer in ordinary races.

For instance now you can find non-runner no bet, ¼ place odds and even be offered the best price guarantees given for ante-post bets for all the Cheltenham races even 2 months away from the start of the event. This therefore helps to alleviate much of the usual risk of betting early for a horse that may end up not participating on the race thus losing your stake.

Finding the best odds

If you wish to back a horse to win a race, you will simply look around for the best price at that time you want to place the bet. Always make sure that you do this if possible with a bookie that is offering the best odds guaranteed and go for the fixed price. This puts you at a better chance of winning big should your horse win the race.

Also remember to take your time when researching on the horses that are expected to participate in the event. Doing greatly increases your chances of picking the most likely horse to win the race.
