Top 10 Football Tipsters

Written by Miles Wyatt (@wyattbets on Twitter)

Tipsters with a proven track record are a great way to beat the bookie. There are many factors you have to take into account when deciding which tipsters you are going to follow. Across all social media platforms and multiple sports betting sites you’ll find thousands of tipsters, some profitable and some not, hopefully this article will help dig through the FUD and find those tipster gems!

Firstly, you have to determine what factors are most important to you when deciding which tipster to follow. Here’s a list of things I look for when deciding which tipsters I’m going to add to my portfolio.

  1. Returns / Profit – Monthly and yearly. The obvious one, they need to make money.
  2. ROI – Monthly and yearly. It’s all great making profit but if they have a tiny edge and need a million bets to see the profit, it may not be worth the time. Opportunity cost is an important factor to always consider.
  3. Bookies available to you – Can you get the odds they post? Do they cover the same leagues?
  4. Posting times – Most people using tipsters won’t be gambling for a day job, can you be active when they post? Do they post in-plays or pre-match bets? You don’t want to miss odds due to being hours late and lose out on that valuable edge they have.
  5. Trust – Do you trust the tipster’s stats? The truth is nothing stops someone from creating a twitter and posting fake stats. You’d also be surprised they may have members in their group who don’t even notice they are cheating the stats.

Below are 10 football tipsters we recommend, not in any particular order. They all have their pros and cons and hopefully using this article you can decide which is best for you.
