SPORTS BETTING INDEX was founded in 2000 to help punters with all aspects of internet betting as the phenomenon of online gambling took off.
Whilst the site has changed and developed over time the core beliefs remain the same: being independent, honest and open.
Newsletter 2
Hopefully some of you started reading the Value Bettor after reading last weeks Newsletter as he had a nice winner midweek. Onto this weeks offerings - first of all another blog site and then a look at a bookmaker offer which may appeal under certain circumstances.Sportismadeforbetting is an interesting blog penned by Scott Ferguson who was once head of Education at Betfair. He writes a regular series of articles about the state of the betting industry in general plus his own “tips” and advice on some sports - all with a slight Australian angle. Blogs are useful if they make you think about what you do betting wise and his comment when talking about the Centaur Group going into administration struck a chord with something we have often thought. “You trade or you punt. Mixing a punting mentality with highly-disciplined trading is extremely risky.” It is sound advice  - backing selections because they are value and letting a bet run its course and trading markets are two very different mindsets and don't really mix. Anyway - have a good read and look in once in a while - you might learn something to help your betting.

Most bookmakers offer incentives to attract new customers but once they have you they offer very little to make you stay! We have always found it a bizarre marketing ploy - especially where Paddy Power are concerned - having spent millions on advertising to get you - if you place the wrong bets you are history. We digress - we know people moan Bet365 but they do have some regular offers which we think quite a few people don’t take advantage of if they have a good account. If you bet on football on Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time or Scorecasts in any football league match from around the globe and the match finishes 0 0 then Bet365 will refund all bets. That has to be worth a look if the match you are betting in is potentially a low scoring affair.
