The greatest footballing show on Earth returns this year with the 21st World Cup being held in Russia from 14th June to 15th July. If you are looking to add to the excitement of the competition, you might be considering betting on a couple of games. We’ve looked at the best, free Twitter tipsters to help you turn a tidy profit during the World Cup.
Probably the biggest and most well-known tipster account on Twitter with over 581,000 followers. As the name suggests, most of the tips are accumulator bets, so you may lose more bets than you win but when you win, you win big. They also offer tips on singles and promotions as well. They post regularly, giving you a wide selection of bets to pick a winner from. FootyAccums should be one of the first tipsters you check out.
Pinchbet offer a huge range of tips from different leagues and they aren’t half bad at it to say the least. They claim they have grown their bankroll by 3,400% in just 18 months. They also let you know how many bets they lose which is something not every tipster is happy to do. A solid selection of tips promises to point you in the right direction if you are looking for an interesting dabble.
Another one of the larger ‘tipsters’ on Twitter with a following of 127,000. They post a lot of information and just about break even most of the time. Giving tips from a wide range of sports and bookmakers they are certainly one to keep an eye on, but choose your tips carefully. They often post bookmakers’ deals and acquisition offers which help punters take advantage of some excellent offers.
Simple but effective. A small following but have some very reliable tips. Nothing too outlandish so if you’re looking for longshots this isn’t the one for you but if you are after solid tips to turn a tidy profit check them out. Their pinned tweet always shows their overall performance letting you know how they are doing. The saying ‘you can’t go broke making a profit’ appears to be the mantra for this tipping service.
Specialise in the under/over goals market for matches that are 0-0 at halftime. Rather niche but a very effective strategy when it comes to making a bit of cash. They run a weekly handy stats page showing their performances. An interesting service that is completely automated and based on statistics. If you like the security of stats and facts rather than going with your gut feeling these guys are for you.
WS standing for who scored is another account that bases its tips on historical data and stats. This can provide some very interesting looking accumulators. They have a lot of strange, long shot bets that might not produce the consistency you are looking for, if you like a steady stream of winners, but when you do get a winner it can be a bumper payday. Whether trusting data and stats works as a strategy in a huge knockout competition remains to be seen but WS are certainly someone to check out if you are searching for a punt.
Bookmakers will often have their own tipsters. If you are looking for tips from those who live and breath the sports and the industry you can’t go too far wrong here. Tipster’s like Charlie McCann at BetVictor can often be found in national and local papers as well as specific sports magazines imparting their wisdom for the week ahead. If the house always wins, then you’re well advised to see what guys like Charlie are saying and pay close attention.
There are some great tipsters on this list who will certainly offer some insights for the novice punter. Below we’ve got some common betting terms you’ll need to know before putting some money down. If you do fancy putting some money on the football remember it should only enhance the excitement and shouldn’t ruin the fun of a fantastic summer of sport, so, remember when the fun stops, stop!
Common Betting Terms
Straight bet – A bet standard outcome bet. E.g. France to beat Denmark
Accumulator – Where more than one bet is combined. E.g. France to beat Denmark, England to beat Tunisia and Uruguay to beat Egypt
Under-over bet – A bet predicting a number for a statistic in a game. E.g. Over 2.5 goals scored
Odds against – When the probability that the event will not happen is greater than the probability that it will. E.g. 2-1 – £1 returns £2 + £1 (Your original bet)
Odds on – It means that the event is more likely to happen than not. If you place a bet at odds on you will still be in profit, as you get your stake back. E.g 1-2 – £1 returns 50p + £1 (Your original bet)
