We have a very busy football month ahead of us and we have decided to visit one of the leading betting tips sites in the UK, Betting Tips 4 You. They have opened their offices doors and explained what a working day is like for them and why everyday more and more football enthusiasts are trusting their tips.
BettingTips4you.com has become in the last 3 years a leading betting tips authority in the UK. By entering their offices it was immediately clear to us the reason why: in every corner you breathe sport and betting and most importantly passion. This is their secret and ultimately their receipt for success in the highly competitive UK football tipping scene.
‘Analysing stats, football performances of players and managers is what we do all day’ said John Pentin the chief editor of the portal. ‘For us it has now become our job but initially we only started moved by passion: we loved the game so much that we wanted to find a way to make money out of it. How? Betting was the short answer. But we didn’t want to gamble our mortgages, we wanted to beat bookmakers with the knowledge.’ While he talks he constantly looking at three screens where there is an Under 21 match being played live with a huge amount of stats being produced every second.
‘Our readers know we do everything with passion. We want them to enjoy football in a better way: watching the game while betting adds adrenaline. Making money while doing something that you really like is a unique experience. Our followers can feel that we live for the game and they share our same values. More and more people are visiting our site and reading our match previews and betting tips and in the space of 3 years we have grown so much that we do now have a team of 15 experts working day and most nights to provide the best possible service.’
But gambling is not healthy, right? ‘aBetting on football do not carry the same risks as long as you know when to stop and you understand that ultimately is a risky game where nobody can claim to win consistently. Having said that we love bashing the bookies and this is something that push us to wake up in the morning and start analysing the enormous amount of stats that is available in our databases. We know literally everything about every teams in the globe.’
But what is the receipt to make a profit from sportsbetting? ‘There isn’t a secret or a magic system. The only ammunitions we have is to be better prepared than the oddsmakers. If we know more than them, it is likely that we will make profit overtime. This is exactly why our readers come to us: we do the hard work for them and we provide full rationale of why we suggesting a bet. They can than make their own mind but we do offer them our view which is backed up by hard facts and statistics’.
But how can you get an edge over bookmakers? ‘It is not easy and it is a constant battle. Sometimes we feel like God while sometimes we looks like idiots. As in everything tough consistency is the basic of success and we strive everyday to improve ourself and ultimately help our readers to win more bets. We reinvest nearly all our profits into technology that helps our analysis: we have created our own algorithm that helps our experts to flash out key influential pre-match and live events that have an impact on odds. We do have our own prices for most of the events and by comparing with bookmakers odds we are able to find gaps in the market to exploit. But I can’t tell you more about how we do things here or our competitors will copy us in 3 minutes!’
Sounds great and we will surely give it a try. What matches do you tip on a normal week? ‘We have split our team of betting tips writers in a way that we can cover the majority of football events during the week. We have full match previews and tips on Premier League, Champions League, Football Leagues and most of the major European leagues. Although football is our main sport we are not limited to it: we employ experts that are also able to provide tips on the biggest sportive events like Golf masters, Cheltenham and so on.’
Let us test you than. Who is going to win the Premier League? ‘We took a decision on that before the season started and so far so good. We tipped Chelsea to win the title as we believed in Antonio Conte’s way of working. We haven’t changed our minds obviously and it is not too late for you to jump in the wagon. Back the Blues to win the Premier League and we are comfortable you won’t be let down!’
