January's Best Football Tipsters


With the the regular season now back in full swing following the winter World Cup break, it's time to take a look at some of the football tipsters who have kicked off 2023 with a first month of bumper profits..

Our top ten covers a wide range of football betting strategies, so just click on any of the links to reveal more information about each tipster, and to provide details of any trial deals that are currently on offer. 

10th King of Dogs 

144 tips, 13.8% ROI, £396 Profit

Leagues: Various  Market: 1X2 Draw

Sitting in at the back of our top ten, King of Dogs offers a multi-sport service that also includes horse racing, tennis and basketball, making it ideal for anyone who likes diversity in their sports betting. However, it was success in the football markets that took centre stage in January, and KoD's 98 soccer selections enjoyed a 29% win rate and a 16% ROI that is all the more remarkable for the fact that he focuses predominantly on the fickle Draw and Correct Score markets.

9th Football Fanatic

50 tips, 13.9% ROI, £139 Profit

Leagues: English  Market: 1X2

It wasn't all smooth sailing for Football Fanatic during a difficult first year on Tipstrr, but January's 13.9% ROI suggests that 2023 might be a little more promising. Apart from a brief foray into the World Cup, this tipster's expertise is aimed exclusively at England's top four divisions, and January's 50 selections in the 1X2 Match-winner market were advised at average odds above the even money line, marrying nicely with an impressive 60% win rate to ensure the best monthly return since last summer.

8th Lulas BTTS

266 tips, 16.6% ROI, £881 Profit

Leagues: Various  Market: Both Teams To Score

In eighth place, Lulas BTTS is no stranger to our monthly rankings after his popular Both Teams To Score completed its first year of business with only one monthly drawdown behind him. January's 16% yield represents his best return since last May, and while his tip volume might be a little excessive for some betting tastes, a 45% win rate at odds exceeding 6/4 not only protects the betting bank, but has boosted it by more than £10K since February 2022. 

7th SoccerBR 

56 tips, 17.4% ROI, £194 Profit

Leagues: Low-tier  Market: Both Teams To Score

Just a month after celebrating his service's first anniversary with a podium spot in these rankings, SoccerBR has gone on to extend his number of consecutive profitable months to an almost unprecedented thirteen. A reduction in tip volume to a more manageable output has not had an adverse effect on his win rate or his returns, with his expertise in the Both Teams To Score market producing a 48% win rate at average odds of 7/5, combining to yield yet another lucrative month..

6th Soccer Naps

39 tips, 20.6% ROI, £161 Profit

Leagues: English  Market: 1X2

After ending 2022 with an eye-catching 29% ROI in December, Soccer Naps has brought that level of performance seamlessly into the new year with another lucrative month that increased his bankroll by a further £160. Combining a 59% win rate in the Match Winner market with average odds above even money can only ever result in positive returns, and if you love betting on English football, then this one might be a good fit, especially as Soccer Naps is still operating as a free service (for now!) 

5th GSHA 

156 tips, 31.6% ROI, £984 Profit

Leagues: English  Market: 1X2

Taken in isolation, the 31% monthly return of GSHA would appear to deserve a higher position than this, but it is a welcome profit spike after an uninspired latter half of 2022, so we are hoping that January's performance can kickstart better things in 2023. Specialising in the top tiers of English football, GSHA has been particularly successful in his coverage of the Premier League and the Championship, so he might fit well with anyone who enjoys the odd weekend acca in those leagues.

4th Soccerrafa

121 tips, 21.3% ROI, £515 Profit

Leagues: Various  Market: Both Teams To Score

Since first gracing the Tipstrr platform back in June 2021, Soccerrafa is yet to suffer a losing month, which means that anyone following his service since day one would have ended each of the last 20 months with a larger betting bank than they began them. The Both Teams To Score market has become increasing popular as a money-making strategy, particularly when identifying when a game will produce at least one clean sheet, and not many have followed this trend more proficiently than Soccerrafa.

3rd SVB Tips

131 tips, 24.2% ROI, £634 Profit

Leagues: Various  Market: Various

The popular service of SVB tips has featured frequently in previous monthly rankings, and in January it was the performance of his football tips that caused a bright blip of our monthly radar. Indeed, if his football tips were taken in isolation, then his 40% yield from 60 soccer tips would have earned a far higher spot on our leaderboard, and there can be no doubting the long-term capabilities of a service that has just completed 16 straight profitable months.

2nd Football Mania 

35 tips, 54.7% ROI, £527 Profit

Leagues: Various  Market: Various + exotic

Combining single bets in various markets into more lucrative accas and exotic bets has also provided a rich source of profit for our runner-up, Football Mania, and never more so than in the last week or so. Most of January's profit was earned on the very last day of the month, when four winners (29/20, 6/5, evens, 1/3) were grouped into a tasty acca and lucky 15 to land over £500 in profit between them. Just a day later, Football Mania kickstarted February in similar fashion, with five odds-on winners making up a Lucky 31 and an tasty accumulator to put another £300+ into the betting kitty. 

1st Footy Star 

28 tips, 50.6% ROI, £283 Profit

Leagues: Various  Market: Both Teams To Score

?And so we conclude with January's best football tipster in the shape of Footy Star, who also recently featured among 2022's Best Emerging Tipsters. Another to specialise in the Both Teams To Score market, Footy Star offers a stripped-down version of its longer-serving and more prolific sister service, Star Tips who also did enough to merit a podium place on this leaderboard (56 tips,  41.2% ROI,  £461 profit). Launched last May and designed for people who find the tip volume of Star Tips to be excessive, Footy Star has lost nothing for providing a more selective output, with January's 50% yield from 28 selections reinforcing the adage that you don't need quantity to produce quality.

So, the new year has kicked off with another bumper for some of our football tipsters, and our congratulations go to Footy Star for topping January's league table.  

We must also pay tribute to the performance of the many tipsters who just missed out on this month's rankings, all of whom remain a valued part of our ever-expanding Tipstrr community.
