Alex Hammond Tip of the Day | Sky Sports Tipster

Alex Hammond, Sky Sports racing tipster

I thought I’d try something a bit different today. Alex Hammond of Sky Sports offers a service which is extremely simple and, even better, completely free. I couldn’t help wondering whether her daily service represented a deceptively simple option… perhaps here was a winning tipster, hiding in plain sight. Welcome then to my trial of […]

New Trial – Oddschecker Bet Monitor!

Lay Back & Get Rich

I recently launched a new trial of Sky Sports’ very own free tipster Alex Hammond. Judging from my inbox, this seems to have struck a chord with quite a few people… including Maxi at Tipsters Empire who wrote to tell me about a similar “I really must trial this sometime” idea. 🙂 And, having since done […]

Soccermatics: A Key To Success?

Lay Back & Get Rich

The greatest success story in the sporting world is surely that of football, rising from its status as an amateur 19th Century English pastime to its present state of global pre-eminence. No matter how much footy output there is, there would appear to be a huge audience out there whose appetite cannot be sated. And as a […]

Value Betting Made Easy

Lay Back & Get Rich

I’m genuinely dazzled by Betfair. Nobody regulates its prices and yet the markets are astonishingly, almost mysteriously efficient. Take, for instance, the Correct Score market on a match such as Arsenal v Stoke this weekend. If we list the Betfair odds on the various potential scorelines that could deliver an Arsenal win, then convert them to […]

Is Hedging A Better Way To Bet?

Lay Back & Get Rich

One of the oddities of betting is that it is almost everywhere regarded as a winner-takes-all business. For instance, most betting services aim to predict winners. Yep, even all these years after Betfair was founded, there are far more backing services than laying ones. And there are even fewer pure trading products. Of this latter […]

A Great Source Of Free Arbs

Lay Back & Get Rich

Wouldn’t it be great if an odds comparison website listed free arbitrage opportunities in ascending order of value? And wouldn’t it be even better if you could then just click through to the games in question and put on your bets at the bookies? And in a dream scenario, wouldn’t it be cooler still if […]

Is Dutching Double Dutch To You?

Lay Back & Get Rich

Dutching is a betting technique that has long divided opinion amongst punters. Some see it as little more than an elaborate hoax. It offers potential for improved strike rates but at the risk that a single loser may wipe out a lot of slowly accumulated gains. However, exactly the same could be said of laying, which also tends to […]
