Bookie restrictions can be one of the toughest obstacles in sports betting. You may have found a bookie that consistently prices a certain market incorrectly and you’ve been smashing their lines for a long period of time — but all of a sudden you’re restricted! Luckily, most bookies have clones where all the odds are identical, so you can simply sign up to their second version and get back to betting. Below is a list of clone bookies I have found, in most cases one or multiple will be available on Trademate Sports…


Experience is a tricky thing. It builds up a valuable internal measuring stick that we call “intuition,” and that helps us decide between the right way to do something and the wrong way. If your experience has helped you achieve your goals in the past, it’s easy to take your intuition for granted and never question it. But, the best way to learn new things (and to constantly improve) is by questioning. For sports bettors, this can mean asking as simple a question as “is it always a mistake to make a -EV play?”

In a recent educational video from…


Sports betting, if done well, can be very profitable. There are many people, including myself currently using Trademate as a side income or a part-time job. This article is for those looking to take on Trademate as an additional income source and want some key tips on how to get started and succeed.

Firstly, you need to set out a strategy and some goals. Be realistic and ambitious, but understand sports betting takes time. Give it time, stick to your strategy and you will succeed and make profits. You need to decide:

  1. Your Bankroll size — This is your initial…

In a previous post, I demonstrated how the conventional wisdom of “any bet that is -EV must be a bad bet” is really just a myth. Another example of conventional wisdom that should be examined more closely is the idea that the larger hold percentage in multiway markets makes them much tougher to beat. In markets with more than two choices, like EPL futures markets or outrights for a golf tournament, the total hold (or margin) is typically much larger than it is for a two-way market when the break-even percentages for all selections are summed up. At sharp books…


Most sports bettors will have heard of Matthew Benham and his story and how he used statistical models to make millions from sports betting. Funny enough, the article we wrote about Matthew Benham two years ago is by far the most popular article we’ve ever written on our blog, so we thought why not make another one!

With his sports betting profits, he has bought two football clubs; newly-promoted English Premier League side, Brentford FC, and Danish club, FC Midtjylland. He took sports stats to a whole new level by applying them in the daily processes at both clubs. I…


Miles is a Professional Sports Bettor who has years of experience using friends betting accounts to make a profit from sports betting. Over the years, we at Trademate Sports have received a number of questions asking us how to use friends betting accounts so you can keep using Trademate when limited by the bookmakers. Although we think this article will be a major help to some of our users and general public, please note that Trademate Sports does not condone any illegal activity or actions that break bookmakers’ terms and conditions. Over to Miles.

Unfortunately, with the majority of bookmakers…


Written by Alex Vella. Originally, this was going to be a 200-word post on our Facebook Group but I got a little excited. Apologies in advance to Man Utd, Chelsea and Liverpool fans! Feel free to highlight my mistakes.

I find Matchday 1 of any competition the greatest metaphor for sports betting. The amount of narratives that form from a sample size of one game is so interesting. Manchester United are the real deal after their 5–1 victory over Leeds, even though they lost to Villarreal on penalties in their last competitive match. Chelsea and Liverpool eased past Palace and…


Most knowledgeable bettors are familiar with the concept of expected value (EV) and how to use it. If you aren’t, stop. Read this Trademate Sports explainer first. Far fewer bettors are familiar with the concept of expected growth (EG). Well, at least they don’t THINK they are. They’ve heard of the Kelly Criterion (if you haven’t, Trademate explains that here too!), and they know it’s supposed to maximize something. That “something” is expected growth.

In short, EG is the percentage by which your entire bankroll grows (in the long run) when doing whatever it is you’re doing. That “something” can…


Tips for accumulator betting:

  1. Use a software like Trademate to find positive edge bets with the same bookmaker and combine them.
  2. If using your own bets, make sure to calculate the ‘true odds’ of each selection and ensure each selection has a positive edge. One negative EV selection will directly affect your chances of long-term profits.
  3. Don’t be afraid to manually rollover instead of a regular multiple bet. By this I mean, if one leg of your bet is better odds on a different bookie then take it on that and manually put the winnings on the next bet. …

Psychology plays a huge part in all forms of gambling. Winning at sports betting is no easy task and the psychological factors just make it even harder. No one likes losing, but unfortunately, variance is unavoidable and something you will experience if betting long term. Negative variance swings can come in all forms and at any time, staying strong mentally throughout is difficult but necessary if you want to profit from the long term edge. …
