Today I thought I’d have a look round to see if I could find any good Free Tipsters to follow.
My first port of call was Statarea’s user prediction section, as I knew they had had a strong community of users making predictions. Initial signs were encouraging as they had a number of tipsters showing a good profit, so far this month. However when I drilled down into their previous months performance they all seemed to have either only recently started putting their predictions on the site or had made substantial loses in previous months.
The site seems to concentrate on short term profits, showing week by week or month by month tables, but I couldn’t see any at a glance way way view longer term performance, so it was a case of click on to each individual tipster and then them through their results month at a time.
I may go back and have another look in future, but for now I decided to have a look elsewhere.
Second Stop was the OLBG site, as again I was aware they had a strong community of tipsters:
From the top menu I selected “Free Tips & Tipsters”. You’ll see they have tipsters for horse racing, football and various other sports.
I clicked on “Hot Tipsters”. I needed to register on their site before it would let me see the info, which is fair enough.
As you can see of their Top 10, 7 are horse racing tipsters, 1 is a golf tipster and there’s 2 football tipster, Safeseen in 6th position and Footballfreak in 9th.
Earlier when I looked at the table, there’d only been 1 football tipster (Safeseen) in the top 10, which confused me slightly, but then I spotted underneath where it says Hot Tipsters, it says, “Only tipsters with current tips are shown in this list”. Footballfreak had obviously been in and posted a selection.
I tried looking around the rest of the site to see if I could find a full list of tipsters, including those who didn’t currently have any tips up. I looked at Tipster Tables under the “Members & Tipster Competition” menu, but that only showed figures broken down into each of the competitions, so wasn’t able to find a full list that included all football bets (please add a comment below if you know where it’s listed on the OLBG site).
For now I’ll just look at those tipsters who have got a current tip logged on their site. I’ll check their site again later to see if any others appear in the top 10.
So of the top 10 Safeseen’s 6 months performance looks pretty good. He has a strike rate of 41% and has made a profit in each of the last 6 months.
That all looks impressive, but then when I click on his name, the data doesn’t tie up with the Hot Tipsters table. The 6 months Level Stakes Profit (LSP) shows the same, but the strike rate shows double at 82%, where as the LSP for December shows as 0 and it’s only showing 3 profitable months from the last 6. It would therefore appear there are some Gremlins in the table.
Of the other top 10, the information tied up for some of them, but not all. For example Footballfreak and Stretchpaul the information tied up
But Evenios83 and Titans Choice it was different
Not sure what’s going on here, so I’ll get in touch with OLBG to see if it’s a problem with their system, or something I’m doing wrong.
