All you need to make money from Professional sports-betting in 2021 is this easy to follow guide. We have been beating the bookmakers senseless for the past twenty years, and so can you! Are you ready to become a thorn in the enemies side? When yes read on.
VALUE BETTING – MAKE MONEY FROM PROFESSIONAL SPORTS-BETTING
If you do not understand the concept of value betting, you will not make it in professional betting. Value bets are those at higher odds than the 100% book price!
Professional betting is no different from any other business, in that you make profits from buying and selling at the right price. From a professional gamblers perspective, it is all about the bottom line. An example of a value bet is getting higher odds of 2.00 on the toss of a coin. Every pip (0.01)over true-odds gives an increased betting advantage.
A quick method for finding value odds is to use Betting exchanges to guide. Anything over the 100% book price represents value, go figure it out!
Power Tip – We are not fans of arbitrage betting because it often means giving part of the value back. Concentrate on the value part of the bet only!
BOOKMAKER ACCOUNTS – PROFESSIONAL BETTING
Which bookmaker accounts you can get depends on several factors. One of them might be licensing issues, so where you are resident could be key. On top of that, soft bookmakers do not like winning clients. Suffice to say softies will not hesitate in limiting or closing accounts which are not economically viable.
On a positive note, if you are new to professional betting, soft bookmakers do not know you will be a successful gambler. With that in mind, you should still be able to get betting accounts with value bookmakers such as Victor Chandler, Bet 365, William Hill and Unibet. Furthermore, if you have lost to these sport-books in the past, you might have higher betting limits!
For the record, many professional gamblers buy-in third party betting accounts. Paying someone to provide documents and allowing you to open accounts under their name is called gnoming! We should also mention Asian handicap bookmakers and betting-exchange accounts work differently, in that they accept winning betting accounts.
All we ask is that you understand betting is a numbers game. The more high-value accounts you have, the easier it will be to make a profit
IDENTIFY BETTER VALUE ODDS
Did you know bookmakers often have different lines for the same bet? Here are some examples of what we mean:
Betting a football team to win in the 1X2 market is the same as -0.5 (Asian handicap). By searching it is often possible to find better odds within the same platform about the same bet. Why not test yourself by clicking through the Pinnacle website.
Did you know, double chance, Asian handicap +0.5, and European handicap +1 are all the same bet? Again, the same bet is often different odds within the same platform!
What about making better odds for yourself, it is often possible by sharpening your mathematical brain. A draw no bet is the same as proportionally splitting stakes on a win, and covering with the draw bet for insurance (stake back). Example of how to proportion stakes:
Imagine +/-0 (draw no bet) is 1.97 1.97, and the 1X2 market at best odds is 2.8 3.5 2.8.
Use 28.57 from a 100 total stake on the draw @ odds 3.5, if it ends that way the 100 stakes is recovered (same as draw no bet). The remaining balance 71.43 is then bet at odds 2.8, which pays 200.00.
You have now increased the Asian handicap odds from 1.97 to 2.00 (email@example.com = 200).
Use the same method to create double chance odds, and at a later stage, the quarter-balls are ready to be addressed.
STAKING PLAN – BETTING BANK
We recommend keeping your betting bank separate to private money. By all means, pay yourself a salary or take out some of the profits when the opportunity is right, but do not mix the two!
Staking plans should take several factors into account, and one of them is the number of bets made. Those specialising with just 20-30 bets per month will want to stake more units than those making several hundred bets. Another consideration is average odds because, for example, two way sports-betting is different compared to betting horses. Strength of selection, type of sport, and bookmaker betting limits are other factors to consider.
Subscribers to our football syndicate service receive 130-160 picks per month. We advise using 1% of betting-bank and 1.5% when labelled maximum bets. With that said, we bet more on the very top leagues. The reason is limits are much higher, and we can bet more without odds slippage!
Deciding unit size is done periodically rather than daily. We take this decision at the beginning of the season. For those with lower betting banks, reviewing every quarter (3 months) could work.
TOOLS & INFORMATION – BET LIKE A PRO
We have developed an in-house algorithmic sports modelling software, and for that, we need masses of data and accurate team information. For most betting syndicates, paying for intelligence is standard because it gives us a definite betting edge! Not everyone is at this level, and for those, at the beginning of their journey, it’s more important to have a strong work ethic and keep costs down.
Did you know most team information is available for free? Visit club websites, look at their social media channels, and listen to podcasts for team updates. You can also use platforms such has Injuries & Suspensions for team news. As with many websites, they offer freemium and paid options.
Professional betting is not for the lazy. The more you put in, the more you will get out!
PS – Free pick betting websites which promote bookmakers for revenue share need you to lose! Their income depends on it, and they won’t get paid if you win. All we ask is you apply logic!
PROFESSIONAL BETTING STRATEGY
Before your professional betting journey can begin, start by making a plan of attack. Flexibility at the beginning is a must while you are finding your way. Bear in mind there is no one rule for all, and the challenge is finding what suits your situation best. While we are reiterating some earlier stuff consider the following:
- Volume; Number of bets you are expecting to make in a month?
- Bookmaker accounts; Which betting accounts can you get to start, and what about longevity and costs of 3rd part accounts?
- Bookmaker value; Do an odds viability check on the bookmakers you have at hand!
- Staking-plan; Consider anticipated odds, and inevitable losing runs.
- Betting Bank; Keep separate funds from your household money. Treat betting as a business!
- Earnings justification; What’s your number? How much do you need to make per month?
- Financial situation; How will you finance this project?
- Financial forecast; What’s your goal? It will help understand performance.
- Limits; Bookmakers impose limits on winning accounts, consider how best to camouflage.
- Time; How much time (realistically) you can dedicate to betting?
REALITY CHECK – MAKE MONEY FROM PROFESSIONAL SPORTS-BETTING
Do not let anyone tell you any different, making money from bookmakers is hard work and time-consuming. If you are a dreamer do not be taken by promises of easy money, professional betting takes both discipline and effort!
If Tipsters are claiming unbelievably high strike rates, maybe they are not honest. When you receive e-mails advertising fixed-games, these are simply scammers. Think about it, if someone were privy to such information they would not sell it on!
Some simple advice. Before buying picks from proven tipsters, make sure you can get advertised odds. Those tipsters using the best odds on the internet are not playing a straight bat. You do not have access to all those bookmakers.
Racing tipsters with big followings are the worst for making false claims. Take Henry Rix for example, he will advertise he had a 20/1 winner, but the fact is nobody can get those odds. Bookmakers also subscribe to these services, and they cut the odds before customers can place a bet. Do the maths, if a service advertised a 25% ROI at promoted odds, how would 12/1 on a 20/1 shot work?
At Betting-analyst, we promote transparency. All odds given are readily available, meaning everyone with access to the right accounts can get on. Those subscribers with more betting options can make even bigger profits.
The secret with professional gambling is to be realistic about expectations. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is not.

BET CLEVER – PROFESSIONAL BETTING
Handle betting accounts with care because they are an asset. Bookmakers do not like professional gamblers, so your job is to stay under the radar and keep betting-accounts open.
With that said, at some stage, winning accounts will eventually be limited or closed. Think how to get around such obstacles, and do that by planning.
We suggest following mantra prevention is better than cure, and by betting clever. To lower the chance of detection by algorithm;
- Do not ask for maximum stakes with soft bookmakers.
- Stay on the bookie’s website longer. It makes them believe you are a casual bettor.
- Make a few silly bets for idiot status.
- Do not just take the best odds because the algorithm will detect intention.
- Do not alert risk managers by asking for payment (wait until the account is limited).
Keeping accounts open is half the battle!
NO PLACE FOR EMOTIONS IN PROFESSIONAL BETTING
You might have heard the saying emotions have no place in business, and it is the same with professional betting. Take it from someone who knows, those who fail to control emotions are unlikely to be profitable gamblers!
With that in mind, take losses on the chin like you would a bad day at the office. Under no circumstances get carried away by winning runs because it will come back to haunt. The fact is sometimes you will win lucky, and on other occasions, you will lose unluckily. Learn to keep a cool head and believe luck balances out in the end.
Win or lose, when the result is in you need to move on. The next bet is more important than the last one, and the only time to dwell on the past is to collect data and analyse performance.
