How do we source our betting tips?
At Gambling Guy, we know that every time we write our latest betting tips, we need to rely on far more than a basic hunch or a quick glance through the latest odds. In fact, compiling our latest betting tips should be like baking a cake, requiring several different ingredients:
Our writers have a complete background knowledge of everything that might influence the outcome of a match; the recent performances of the teams involved, historical factors that can be influential, and even an insight into how weather conditions affect things.
Personal background knowledge is important, but we know that you can’t compile the latest betting tips based off this alone. We use statistics to reinforce and bolster that knowledge, so that our tips are doubly strong.
The perfect combination
Our latest betting tips benefit from the perfect combination of knowledge and statistical accuracy, so our readers can always be confident in the information we provide.
Knowledge is key: Our tools for analyzing the daily betting market
When creating the Gambling Guy free betting tips, we’re concerned first and foremost about finding value; the spaces where there’s a chance bookmakers may have mispriced or underestimated a potential outcome on a particular bet, and which could potentially place the advantage in the bettor’s hands.
Finding value when compiling our latest betting tips, however, means that our writers need to first research as much as possible about each match we cover. We read stories, check social media feeds, follow up on gossip on fan forums – everything we need to do to provide a rounded picture of the forthcoming fixture, and how each team might be feeling as they set upon it. We’ll look at the star players, their recent form, and even keep an eye out for historical precedents that might affect performance. Even the best teams in the world have their bogey opponents, or have a tendency to slip up when playing at a certain stadium, so we’ll make sure we know of any such tendencies when we’re compiling a tip.
Strengthened by that background understanding, we’ll then look deeper into the bookmakers, the markets they offer, and try to find the value we know our readers will want to know about.
When our betting tipsters have a full picture both of the event we’re covering from all angles and the current offerings from the bookies, they’ll bring all of this information together into an outstanding betting tip.

Things you should think about before placing a bet
After reading through our latest betting tips, you’ll then need to place a bet, which means you’ll need to think about the following:
The type of bet you want to place
Our latest betting tips often go far beyond the “standard” bets, such as win, lose, or draw (1×2) for football, or a simple winner in horse or greyhound racing – that are always worth considering, but there’s other types of bets you may also want to discover. Markets such as number of corners and both teams to score (BTTS) can be a great choice for football matches, while each-way betting in horse racing, golf, and a few other sports can provide an additional boost if you win or a small profit if your choice places.
Find the best odds
Deciding what you want to bet on is just the first part of the equation; now you have to make sure that you can find the best possible odds. After all, you want to make sure that, should your bet come off, you stand to profit as much as possible. Scanning through the list of most reputable bookmakers and finding the most attractive odds for your bet is an absolute must.
When should you bet?
With horse and greyhound racing, reading through the latest betting tips and then placing your bet prior to the off is usually preferable; you can bet in-play, but it’s confusing, and the odds change at lightning speed, so looking to place around an hour before the race starts is usually preferable. For other sports, the options are more open; prematch is the standard, and perhaps the most reliable choice, but in-play bets can be a great choice if you’re watching the match and are beginning to notice signs of a particular result or eventuality. You can capitalise on your observational skills and make your bet – though, again, do be careful of moving odds before confirming your wager!
Our top five tips for finding your favourite bookie
Of course, if you’re looking to place a bet after reading the latest betting tips from Gambling Guy, you’re going to need to know which bookmaker you should choose – so here are a few tips for finding the perfect bookie for you.
#1 – Prioritise usability
You want to be able to log in, place your chosen bet, and then sit back and watch the event itself, so a poorly-designed website or app is a no-go. Look for bookmakers with well-designed sites that are easy to navigate and seem to suffer relatively little downtime.
#2 – Check the available bonuses
As well as placing standard bets, many bookies regularly offer promotions and bonuses that can really help to enhance the betting experience.
#3 – Browse the market options
As we touched on above, many bookmakers offer interesting markets such as corners betting, so if you’re looking to bet on these more unusual options, you’ll need to find a bookmaker who offers a solid range of choice.
#4 – Consider the payment options
You’ll need to be sure that you’re able to deposit funds using the method of your choice when deciding which bookmaker to use. Most bookmakers featured in our latest betting tips offer a range of options – such as credit and debit cards, PayPal, Paysafecard, and more besides – but it’s still worth double-checking.
#5 – Read customer reviews
Finally, take the time to read through reviews of any bookmaker you are considering signing up to so you can gain an “insider” glimpse of what it’s actually like to use the service.
Our top five tips for wagering your bonuses
Sometimes you may find yourself needing to wager through bonus funds, which can be time-consuming and rather irritating – but it is possible to make the process more bearable by following these five tips:
#1 – Check the terms and conditions
You need to know exactly how much time you have to complete wagering, so check the T&Cs of the original promotion or contact the bookmaker directly to get an exact date and time by which wagering needs to be complete.
#2 – Place bets daily
To make sure that you complete wagering in time, efficiently use your funds as part and parcel of your daily betting routine.
#3 – Look for the best odds
Time might not be on your side, but always remember to keep an eye out for odds that offer genuine value.
#4 – Keep the odds low
In addition to seeking odds that offer good value, try to focus on odds that are relatively low, so there’s a greater chance of a win and therefore converting your bonus funds into withdrawable profit.
#5 – Consider all the different markets
You can place more than one bet on a single fixture, which can really help to use your funds efficiently. You could, for example, choose a football match and then place bets on the match winner, both teams to score outcome, and the first goalscorer.
