August's Best Tipster rankings continue with a rundown of the pick of our tipsters who ply their trade beyond the two mainstream markets of football and horse racing, or who successfully combine those two markets.
As always, we're happy to present a diverse range of strategies, one or more of which should hopefully appeal to your own betting preferences. When you find a service you like, just click on the relevant link to access more information about that tipster, which will include details of any trial deals that are currently on offer.
Please note: If you have previously enjoyed a trial with a tipster, then you are no longer eligible for any trial period offered by the same service.
Profit: £62.78 to £20 average stake
Following on from the eighth spot that he achieved in July, USA Sports Wiseguys should appeal to anyone who like to follow sports on the other side of the Atlantic. Six profitable months since February have produced a solid 11% yield, with August's 10% gain following on from July's 19.3% return. While baseball is currently centre stage, this service has proven equally capable of picking out value bets in basketball, ice hockey and American football, all of which are set to resume soon.
Profit: £72.82 to £20 average stake
Like London buses, one US-based service brings us another in the shape of American BestBets, whose 30 baseball bets in August brought in eighteen winners at around even money for a 60% win rate and a healthy double-digit yield. With the NBA, NFL and NHL seasons waiting in the wings, ABB could be primed to offer a rich varied service throughout the forthcoming winter months,
Profit: £323.60 to £20 average stake
Completing a hat-trick of American multi-sport tipsters, Gustavo Zambrano has also focused on the MLB during the summer, where an eye for value in his preferred Match Winner, Over/Under and Asian Handicap markets have all reaped double-digit yields, thanks to a 56% win rate at average odds well above even money. And news just in - his first ten tips of September produced another eight winners to suggest another successful month lies ahead.
Profit: £380.08 to £20 average stake
Breaking away from American sports for just a moment, The BestWillCome is the first of two services in this list to enjoy equal success in both horse racing and football. Splitting his selections roughly 2:1 in favour of horse racing, August produced a double-digit yield in both, with his 82 tips in horse racing earning a 10% ROI, while a further 44 football selections yielded a 12% gain.
Profit: £327.19 to £20 average stake
Basketball tipsters dominate our top five positions, kicking off with Hoops Bet who follows on from his fourth spot in July, when he achieved an even more impressive 35% yield. A 59% win rate from 34 tips covering the NBA Summer League suggest this service might just be primed for even greater success when the main American hardcourt season reboots next month.
Profit: £321.20 to £20 average stake
The second of our in-form basketball services sees Richard Kevin feature among our top tipsters for the third straight month, following up his third place in June (43% ROI) and his seventh position in July (21% ROI) with another podium spot in August. A simple service aimed solely at the Match Winner market, that all adds up to a tasty 35% ROI over the last three months, not bad for service that looks for outsider value at average advised odds of around 5/1.
Profit: £1,055.09 to £20 average stake
No stranger to these rankings, SVB Tips is another service equally at home providing top quality tips in both football and horse racing. Not for the first time he has produced eye-catching returns in both, combining a 40% ROI from over 100 football tips with an equally impressive 24% yield from 59 horse racing tips. A jack of two trades and a master at both, SVB offers two services for the price of one (and that price is just £1 for the first 30-day trial period).
Profit: £276.55 to £20 average stake
If you're looking to add an extra sport to your tipster portfolio without overstretching your time or your betting funds, then the steady service of Tennis Riser might just fit the bill. He has been providing a manageable stream of tennis selections on Tipstrr for a full year now, and has produced an equally manageable stream of winners, culminating in August's tasty 74% success rate in various tennis markets, which, at average odds of around 7/5, converted to a tidy 60% yield and over £275 in profits.
Profit: £574.55 to £20 average stake
It's been four straight profitable months for the basketball tipster service of HighOddbet, who has backed up his runner-up spot in July (41% ROI) with a mammoth 110% yield in August. His last three active months have accrued an overall 63% ROI, all thanks to his willingness and ability to identify outsider value, with average advised odds of around 6/1 combining with a 32% win rate to earn nearly £800 of clear profit. With the NBA and European seasons about to take shape, this could be a perfect time to consider arming your portfolio with an in-form basketball tipster.
As usual, a diverse range of sporting preferences are covered by our featured services, any of which might help to add an extra edge to your sports betting.
Well done yet again to HighOddBet for his achievements throughout August, and we hope to see this service and others featuring again in our Best Tipster rankings throughout the rest of 2021.
