We tested and approved this service in 2017 and gave it a resounding approval. Our reviewer, Liam, had this to say about it:

“I’ve long thought, and discussed with punting pals, that if you could find genuinely dedicated to their patch tipsters, specialising in Scottish lower league and/or English non-league betting, you would never look over your shoulder again. Niche areas where actual knowledge or nouse outweighs stats…

I think this deserves its place on our APPROVED list… The fact that you can check it out risk free for the first month is very reassuring, as is the ease of contact and support available from the service.”

Here’s a few general points about the service…

  • It started in the 2015/16 season, with information sourced from a private betting syndicate analyst who is based in Scotland (so he knows the markets at grass-root level).
  • Most bets are framed around the weekend fixtures, and are released on Wed/Thu/Fri via SMS text alert and email.
  • The average number of bets per weekend will vary, usually it’s around 4-6 spread across the four divisions. 
  • Bets are advised in the 1X2 market (Team A to beat Team B) as well as Double Chance and Draw No Bet.
  • The stakes advised are from 1-3 points, with each member deciding their own monetary value for each point.
  • Results since SFIB started are HERE, currently 11.52% ROI – which I don’t think you’ll find bettered by any other football tipping service (tell me if you do!)
  • In terms of a betting bank, the advice is to have an absolute minimum bank size of 50 points, and quite possibly something nearer the 75-100 point mark – to cover any drawdowns
  • The strike rate on all bets is 42%.
  • Bets can be placed with all the usual “High Street” outlets, as well as the exchanges such as Betfair, Smarkets and Matchbook. 

That’s about the size of it. Oh, and it comes with a 30 day money back guarantee too.
