The Poacher – reliable football tipster covering the main leagues

About The Poacher

One of many perks of being a Smart Betting Club member is the access to free tipsters in different areas. The Poacher is one of them, specializing in football from around Europe.

Tips are sent out via email and are very easy to follow. The email contains information about what game it is about, the starting time as well as what the actual bet is and a list of recommended odds at different bookmakers. The markets used are usually the big ones, so there’s no problem whatsoever to get on. Each bet also contains a few points of reasons why to back the bet.

He’s advising mostly singles and doubles with a mix of over/under and Asian Handicap bets, he expects an average of 6-10 bets per week with the weekend being the busiest period.

There has been over 400 bets recommended so far and the results are showing profit, but lately the trend has been going downwards, so it’s not by a lot. The ROI stands at +0.9%. The official figures shows +6.5% and it’s a little unclear where the difference lies. From a 100pts starting bank the ROC would have been just +3.9% since January 2019.

The service is named ‘The Poacher’ because it is overseen by a true ‘Poacher turned Gamekeeper’ who has been working for bookmakers in a variety of roles since 1996 and has decided to operate his service from ‘behind enemy lines’.  During this period he has primarily managed bookmaker shops, however in recent years much of his work has been focused on profiling winning customers and the application of restrictions to their accounts. This is a true bookmaker insider.

Profitable football tipster from the top European leagues

Despite the late downturn of results, there’s a lot to like about The Poacher. Tips are sent out regularly and the bets is always backed up by good reasoning and the odds are easy to find.

The fact that it’s free of charge for Smart Betting Club members also helps, of course.

We believe that there is some value to be found here, and we’re excited to see how the service fares in the future. It has proven to be trustworthy and if the latest results are only a temporary set back, we should be in for a good run going forward.
