Rene from Insider Tipps has developed an unusual and very exciting bit of software that looks like it can give you a massively unfair advantage over your fellow Betfair punters. Whilst not illegal, some might say this is definitely skirting along the edges of fair play, but I’m of the opinion that all we are doing is using software to see what the Betfair market is doing and reacting to it.
I’ll leave Rene to explain how it works…..
I’m sure we’re all aware that there are dodgy betting practices happening all the time. I’m not just talking about the stuff we see in the movies, where gangsters bet a hundred grand on the favoured boxer to get KO’d in the fifth round. You will have seen on the news famous criketers or footballers under investigation by the authorities for ‘unusual betting patterns’, and the subsequent disgrace of said professional players as they have been found guilty of match fixing and insider trading.
But how do they get caught?
What usually happens is that a large amount of money is bet on an obscure market, at an obscure time, usually offering very good odds and then that bet goes on to win. This immediately gets the bookmaker, or betting exchange, asking questions. Someone, somewhere is ‘in the know’ about something and has bet a large amount of money on this knowledge. If a link can be found between the players concerned, and the people doing the betting, then prosecutions can be made.
Have a look at this game below from the French 2nd league between Caen and Clermont. This even made the headlines. One day before match day, there was a couple of thousand euros bet on the Half Time/Full Time outcome of 2/1. This basically means that the away team leads by half time but by the full time the home team wins by this particular scoreline.
Now, this may not sound very significant but if you look at every other market on this game there was zero turnover. No interest whatsoever.
Then, just before kick off, there was a massive amount of money traded on exactly this outcome. More than €100,000 on this HT/FT market; way more than on the match odds and Over 2.5 markets combined.
And I’m sure by now you can guess the result…
A couple of days later we see the same pattern in Japan with Hiroshima-Kawasaki:
Again the only market with ANY volume was the HT/FT market for an eventual 2/1 Win, as above. You can see well over 5k has already been traded with NO VOLUME traded on ANY other market in this game. Now see what happened a couple of hours later…
The odds heavily plummeted from 29/1 with various high street bookies earlier in the day and again, the result was exactly as the market suggested.
Now of course it’s impossible for us to know what is happening behind the scenes, but I’m sure you can imagine the possibilites available to anyone that can spot betting patterns like this as they are happening!
I happened to spot this one and I bet on the HT/FT income at between 20/1-30/1 with almost every bookmaker that would take the bet. As the odds steamed in, I traded out at around 10/1 giving me a very nice risk free bet. Of course, the bet still went on to win netting me a four figure win. And if it had lost, I would have broken even.
As I looked at my winnings, I had an idea.
That idea led to me spending a fairly substantial amount on programmers, hundreds of hours of coding, many frustrations, many developments and sleepless nights. Eighteen months later we had cracked it.
My idea was to find a way to spot these unusual betting patterns automatically, and to be alerted when they occur so that I could jump on them myself. Even if the bets went on to lose it wouldn’t matter because the lumping on of cash in small markets always causes the odds to plummet, creating the perfect situation for trading out if I wanted to. Or I could simply back these bets myself and hope that ‘those in the know’ knew what they were doing.
Either way, it was an exciting proposition.
And so I developed Spikey Bot, named after the ‘spike’ in the Betfair market caused by large volumes of money matched in a very short timeframe.
Spikey runs quietly; efficiently scanning all the In Play markets searching for these specific large volumes. Once it spots an opportunity it sends you an alert:
Alerts are also sent to your e-mail address and, if you wish, as a message to your phone.
Now, instead of just spotting these opportunities by chance, I have a bot that works all day actively looking for them and telling me when they are happening.
I made the bot customizable too.
To save scanning speed and memory you can disable certain countries just by unticking them:
Spikey is able to cover ALL markets on Betfair although personally I only choose a couple of markets to save resources:
I have created five systems to use with Spikey, and personally use three of them myself:
Alert 2: Correlation of Odds and Traded Volume. In an efficient market more money will be traded the lower the odds get. If that’s not the case then Spikey will alert you.
Here is a very recent example for you Celtic fans. This was the alert I got on my mobile before the match:
A lot of money had gone on Leigh Griffiths being the first goal scorer, so I followed it.
It took just three minutes for me to collect on this bet:
Alert 3: This is for HT/FT discrepancies where we can take advantage of early money lumped on in the Betfair market as shown in our examples above.
Alert 5: This is my favorite and most successfull one. Look at these few examples and I’m sure you’ll be stunned!
In this game between Amkar and Terek Grozny the markets are sleeping but all of a sudden there appears a Lay bet for 20k lumped in. Very shortly afterwards the goal comes in:
Coincidence? You decide.
Here’s another Spike in this South American game. Money comes flooding into the market and… GOAL!
Here the odds skyrocket from under 1.25 up to 3.0 for a very nice trade, again you can see the volume spike just before:
And look at this. The heavy, red hot, unbeatable 1/5 favourite is behind in the game; nothing serious you might think. Things like this happen every day, right? But look what’s going on when the Ref blows his whistle for Half Time. Some well informed people started to back the favorite extremely heavily; despite the fact it’s lagging a goal and half of the game has already gone!
Of course, you can guess the outcome:
Spikey Bot is the ULTIMATE betting tool. I now have the ability to bet where the ‘smart’ money is being bet. No second guessing, no having to sit and hope I spot something in some obscure market somewhere. I have a piece of software that works all day long searching for the smart money, and alerting me exactly where it is happening as it is happening.
I don’t have ‘insider information’, I don’t need it. The Betfair market tells me all I need to know and my software allows me to spot it instantly.
And now you can too!
The Betfair market is huge. I’ve only scratched the surface here and there’s plenty of opportunites available for you to get a piece of the action too.
If you would like to have Spikey Bot working for you, alerting you to unusual betting patterns so that you can either copy them, or trade them out for very profitable risk free bets, then you are invited to purchase a lifetime license to Spikey Bot for a one off fee of just €397.
It’s possible that just one alert could pay for this software and you then have it working for you for life, scanning the markets and finding profitable betting and trading opportunities indefintely.
Full details here:
Looks great but its pretty pricey and there is no option for a cheaper one month trial to make sure it works and is profitable.
Also the link went to a german forum is there no website for this?
The price is for a lifetime license, not a year, so it’s actually really good value. We’ll be testing this out as usual to make sure it works. Insider Tipps is Rene’s website, he’s Austrian. Hope this helps.
Will you be reviewing spikey Graham? Seems quite expensive for a bot without some sort of trial? Even 2 weeks trial would be good. I’m sure he would get more sales that way.
With this being made public as well, my only concern is how this would affect odds and how can the normal punter make money. Odds would be slashed heavily while people using the bots clamor on to get their bets matched.
Yes, we will be testing this out as usual. The odds are heavily slashed anyway with these big dodgy gambles, the software just allows us to get in on it before the bookies suss out what’s going on. I doubt bettors at our level would make any difference. Besides, there’s hundreds of markets, not everyone using this bot will be betting in the same markets at the same time.
Is there any video how this software works and what the capabilities are. Based on above description is difficult to risk and buy the product.
BTW, Someone spent 100s of hours to develop the software and do not have proper website publishing the product. It looks really unprofessional.
Insider Tipps is a proper website. It’s one of the most popular betting sites in Europe and owned and run by Rene. It’s no different to me putting something up here on Cash Master. He’s not a professional webmaster, he’s a professional bettor and makes a living from it.
This does look very interesting and with the currency conversion it works out at around £290 in English money. The lifetime licence is great but my only concern would be that it is not transferable to anther computer and I will be looking for a new PC in the near future. A couple of videos of the software in action and even a two week paid trial would be good to see if it is right for the buyer. As you say Graham Rene is not a webmaster and there is no direct link on the site to buy. The option to pay by Skrill is good, I will keep an eye out for your updates Graham before I commit to this but it does look great if it works.
I’m pretty sure Rene would send you a new license for a new computer. Yes, he only takes Skrill or Neteller or Bank Transfer. In Europe most people use Skrill or Neteller to move money in and out of bookies anyway so it’s normal for him.
Hi Graham, this looks an excellent piece of software but like other people I’m not going to be launching in just yet without knowing more information, or having some of discounted/ free trial.
I’d love to know typically how many of these ‘Spike’s’ go on to win, percentage wise, and then at what average odds?
Also do the odds always shorten, so that I could secure an arb if I wanted to?
Will be interesting to see what results you achieve, percentage wise, as well as how much profit is made to a set stake of say £10.
I’ll be keeping a very close eye for the results of your trial. I have seen Rene’s work before, and he is very professional. I just need to some stats and expected profit before putting my money down.. 🙂

Let me try to address some of your Questions. First off, Spikey is NOT a Tipping Service. There are simply too many variations as to how Spikey can be used. Basically you can monitor EVERY Betfair Market either Preplay or Inplay. Spikey was created to find strange volumes matched on the Betfair Markets AND GET THE CHANCE TO LOOK AT THOSE MARKETS!
There are many strange games on Betfair day in day out. Today, for example, there was a game in Georgia. The favorite went down a goal but the market didn’t even respond to it, like nothing had ever happened. Of course the rest is history.
You will be alerted in direct relation to your Filter Settings. Set the Spike Limits low and you will get a truckload of inplay alerts, this is just “Noise”. Set it very high and you wont get too many notifications.
As for records, I don’t use any since everyone will play this game in a different Way. I use Spikey in combination with Inplaystats. You will get many Alerts with ridiculously low Lay Odds, however its up to you if you go for the Jackpot or prefer the EVENS Goal Line. Because of so many variations, it is impossible for me to give any P/L Figure. However let me tell you that the “First Goalscorer” Alerts are well in profit all on their own.
Last time Spikey sent an Alert in the Spurs-Villa Game for an eventual Correct Score of 3:1, we all know by now how this Game did end up. A juicy double Figure Profit for straight Backers and a nice Profit for Dutchers and Traders as well.
On the Forum we will discuss all and everything. I will also post live Trades from Time to Time. Sometimes there will be a HT/FT Trade flagged up. Believe it or not but only the two Trades from the French2 and Japanese Game made me a 4 Figure risk free Profit. Of Course this cant happen all the Time nor frequently.
Otherwise,lets be straight here, you wont be able to buy this Bot for a couple of Hundred Quid. If you buy Spikey you dont only buy a very nice Piece of Software you are investing into the Future. There are some very nice Add Ons planned in the Future no one has seen before. For Example a direct API to the Asian Bookmakers, the REAL Turnover Machine in the World of Betting. What I want to tell you is that Spikey can help you find some profitable Trades or use it as an Addition to your Betting Armoury. On the Forum I have posted some nice Screenshots from some nice Trades. If you have any Questions please register on the Forum and start your Journey there. I’m here to help
My understanding is that this bot will help you find games that are somewhat predetermined which I know happens and have monitored the Greek league in the past where I saw this happen fairly regularly.
But the 3-1 Spurs scoreline and also the example you give with Griffiths as the first goalscorer aren’t like this. Do you believe the amounts of money on these are due to them being value odds?
Like others have said a cheaper paid 1 or 2 week trail would have me on board so that I could see the potential of such tool. Is that likely to be a possibility?
Did you start testing this software ?? if so can you share the results ??
Yes, Liam is testing this and will post results here on the blog.
There is another very suspicious Game this afternoon. Kissamikos-Ergotelis. Just have a look at the HT/FT Market on Betfair. Enjoy the Game 😉
perfect Game: HT Result 0:1 , FT Home Win. The Odds on the Hometeam by Halftime didnt even react to the lagging Result. FT Result 2:1 , with all matched on this Result. Nice One
