1. Mike Says..


In this column, Secret Betting Club co-editor and professional gambler Mike Bishop discusses some of the weeks most topical betting issues.

Those of you who live in the UK wont have failed to notice that we currently have a General Election campaign taking place. As always during these times, we find ourselves being bombarded with different numbers, statistics and polls all designed to make us vote a certain way.

Well I’m certainly not standing for election but I thought I would provide you with some numbers of my own that should interest you from a betting viewpoint. Think of it as a party political broadcast on behalf of the Secret Betting Club if you will ūüôā

Over 120 Services Currently Monitored

To start off with, did you know that here at the Secret Betting Club we currently monitor 120 different betting services and systems?

A full 32 of this 120 are either in our Hall of Fame or have a Recommended rating, meaning they are well worth following with your money. These are the very best services that we filter out for you to follow.

A further 13 also come with a Closely Monitored status, which means they show potential but require more time before a firm decision can be made. In addition there are also 5 different ratings services and systems we currently advocate.

That leaves another 70 services, all of which we are currently proofing in advance of a review from us in the near future. 17 of which are in what we call ‘testing’, which means they are currently being probed by our panel of experts. Thus there remain 53 further services who will no doubt come up for review before too long.

How This Helps You

The point I wanted to illustrate with all these numbers is just how wide our tentacles actually spread here at SBC. If you have an interest in a betting service or system, its very likely we will have an experience of it to share with you.

I know this is blowing our trumpet a little bit, but perhaps I have picked up a bit of the electioneering spirit this week!

Until next week…

Mike Bishop

2. The Next Week in Football Betting


Mike analyses the forthcoming football betting opportunities over the next week and highlights a few bets he feels offer value.

The race for the title and 4th position could well be over after this weekend with 2 crucial games, starting at Saturday lunchtime with the Manchester derby over at Eastlands.

Man Utd need three points badly but with Rooney unlikely to start the best price 2.51 (Pinnacle) on them looks fairly short. Their away record against top half teams this season reads as won 3, drawn 3 and lost 3, so with only a 33% win success rate it highlights the lack of value.

City on the other hand have done very well of late and have only lost once this season against Everton. Perhaps a good option is the 0 Asian Handicap on the home team (same as a Draw No Bet) at a best priced 2.16 from 188bet.

The other big game sees Spurs host Chelsea, with the home team buoyed from ending arch-rivals Arsenal title challenge in the week. Spurs have become very tough to break down at home since the turn of the year and have not lost at White Hart Lane since November. Chelsea I fear will have their work cut out and so the +0.5 Asian Handicap on Spurs at 1.98 with 188bet pays out as long as they dont lose.

Elsewhere there are 3 short home favourites in Birmingham (1.83), Fulham (2.22) and Stoke (2.18) to beat 3 struggling teams in Hull, Wolves & Bolton respectively. Stoke in-particular are of real interest as their record against bottom half teams reads won 7, drawn 2 and lost 0. With that in mind and against a Bolton side who always struggle away from home, anything above evens looks useful. As for Fulham – Wolves, it sees 2 very organised teams face up and its hard to see too many goals, and the under 2.5 goals is 1.74 with 188bet jumps out at me.

Whatever you bet on this coming week, good luck!

3. The Winabobatoo Weekender


Winabobatoo are English Premier League, Football League and Scottish Premier betting experts. Using their own excellent football system to often ‘Win a bob or two’ for their members, they are penning an exclusive Weekend Football Guide to help with your bets every Saturday and Sunday.

Winabobatoo Weekend Football Guide

Hearts managed to win for us last week in our single bet at 1.91. There are a few more opportunities this weekend to find a couple of games for a double bet.

We’re reaching the critical point of the season, where every match assumes much greater significance in the promotion and relation battles. Chelsea v Spurs and Man City v Man Utd are massive games. A win for Chelsea and a loss for United would see Chelsea 7 points clear with just three games to go.

One of our bets this weekend features a team at the bottom of the Premiership table. Take Fulham to beat Hull at 2.10 with Bet 365. Fulham have won 10 from 16 at home, whilst Hull have won none in 17 away from home.

Hull need the points and Fulham are safe but integrity is still apparent in football, and Fulham will play to win, and they should be too good for Hull. I’m sure Hull will raise their game as their Premiership survival is at stake but effort shouldn’t be good enough against the better class of Fulham.

Our second bet is in League Two: Notts County are taken to beat Morecambe at 1.57 with Bet 365. County are in a battle with Rochdale for the title, and by coincidence, play each other on Tuesday night. Morecambe have play-off aspirations but 48 goals scored by County in 20 home games should be too much for a slightly leaky Morecambe defence. They’ve conceded 34 goals on their travels, which is the 6th worst in the division.

Recommended double: Fulham to beat Hull at 2.10, and Notts County to beat Morecambe at 1.57. The double is available at 3.29 at the time of writing, with Bet365.

I estimate the true odds of both games winning to be around 2.76, or 36%. So we have the odds nicely in our favour.

Good luck until next time.

4. Skeeve’s Non League


Skeeve is our resident non-league football betting expert who each week shares his best advice for this weekend’s domestic lower league action.

Hi everybody,

If you thought you’ve heard someone yelling and howling somewhere in the distance last Saturday, it was me – last weekend’s bets all turned out to be heartbreaking horror stories. Missed penalties, two-goal leads turning into draws – you name it, I survived it last Saturday. Days like that happen from time to time, it’s basically part of the job, but it always hurts and if you’re smart, the only thing you can do is work you ass off, watch the match highlights instead of going to sleep, read the fans’ forums instead of cooking dinner and go through all the news articles instead of going out with your girlfriend or mates. I hope that’s it for the season as far as horror stories are concerned. Here’s one of the seven bets I’ve sent to my clients a couple of hours ago.


17/ 4/2010


LEWES РDorchester 1  (1.80 @Bet365) 4 units

These three points would be pure gold for Lewes – they’re in the relegation zone, they have one point less than Worcester who are just outside the relegation zone, but they’ve played a game less and a win against unmotivated Dorchester doesn’t really look like a mission impossible. Lewes have two wins and a draw in the last three home games (3:1 vs Welling, 1:0 vs Bromley, 0:0 vs St Albans), they’ve only lost once since they’ve brought in Gradwell and El-Abd on loan from Hayes (Gradwell missed the goalless draw with St Albans, but he’ll play against Dorchester, it’s an extremely important game for Lewes), they’re not that bad at home (six wins, seven draws, six defeats), they have a couple of very good midfielders in Wheeler and Keehan who is their best scorer this season and I wouldn’t be surprised if they (and not Worcester) manage to stay in the Blue Square South status after all. Dorchester are one of the worst away teams in the league, they have as much as fifteen defeats in twenty away games (only Weston have one defeat more than them), they have three consecutive 0:2 away defeats (0:2 at Braintree, 0:2 at Bath, 0:2 at Eastleigh) and they’re manager has announced he won’t field a full-strength team for this game – Dorchester are safe from relegation, they have some injuries (full-backs Hill and Critchell are both injured) and suspensions (another defender Bowles) to deal with and, well, here’s what their manager has to say: ”We are safe, I want to involve some of the lads on the periphery of the squad…Without being disrespectful to Worcester we have done our job and got to where we want to be, which allows us to change things accordingly if we so wish…We are interested in building for next season and we will change things by looking at one or two options. People deserve the chance to impress and I trust every one of the boys to come in and grasp the opportunity”. This could be a double-edged sword of course, but I don’t think Lewes should be at 1.80 (and even 1.91) – anything better than 1.60 looks great to me.

(1.91 at BoyleSports btw, 1.80 also at Bwin, Coral and also at Blue Square, Bet-at-home, BetFred, Expekt, Gamebookers, Paddy Power, Sportingbet, StanJames, Unibet…)
