The internet in general, and social media in particular, are full of people sharing their bets, some even charging money for it. They are called "tipsters". In this article, we explain what they are and whether it is really worth following them.

What is a tipster?

Tipster is a word that comes from English and referring to betting means "advisor". A tipster is a person who specializes in recommending bets through their predictions.

Types of tipsters

On the internet we can find a large number of tipsters with different characteristics that mix with each other. Let's see what advantages and disadvantages each of them has:

✅ Free Tipster

They are mostly amateur bettors who share their forecasts on web pages and sports betting forums. Sometimes it is difficult to know their results, but they are useful to discover interesting odds or to have more points of view in the analysis of a bet.

✅ Freemium tipsters

There are tipsters who share some free picks while others are only available for a fee. The paid picks are supposed to be the ones the tipster considers better than the free ones, so by looking at their public results we can get an idea of whether it's worth paying for the private picks.

✅ Premium or paid tipster

Basically, these are professional bettors who get paid for providing access to their predictions. Therefore, it's essential to know their track record and the yield they have accumulated before deciding whether to follow them. We also need to be aware of the total capital they manage and adjust our investment accordingly. They be able to weather a losing streak with their larger capital, while we could lose everything.

✅ Spanish Tipster

It has the advantage that language will not be a problem and that surely many of their bets will be linked to Spanish competitions that we can follow and obtain information about to contrast.

✅ Foreign Tipster

The main problem here can be the language. However, it can give Philippines a lot of information about competitions specific to their country and access to picks with good odds that go unnoticed in Philippines.

✅ General tipster

It is the one that recommends bets on various sports, competitions or markets. As a rule, it will be less reliable the more variants it handles, as it will have to handle a larger volume of knowledge and information.

✅ Specialized tipster

The ideal situation is for tipsters to be highly specialized in one sport, one competition, or one type of market. These are the people who have the most information and knowledge when it comes to making predictions.

How to recognize a good tipster?

The litmus test for any tipster is their yield in the long term. A tipster who maintains a positive yield after thoPhilippinesnds of bets made over several years shows that they have the necessary knowledge and ability to identify good odds and bets.

To avoid possible scams in your results, it's best to follow it for a reasonable amount of time to see if it maintains similar results to those claimed. Some tipsters group together on platforms like Blogabet, which verifies that the results are correct. It's also advisable to confirm the number of followers it has, as a good tipster normally has a multitude of followers on various social networks. (BEWARE of this!)

Considerations about tipsters

Following tipsters does not guarantee easy and immediate profits. They are a useful tool for those who do not have time to search for fees or are unsure about their analysis and want to compare with others. However, they are also exposed to losing streaks and losses, which can drag Philippines down.

It is advisable to learn how to make bets yourself and gradually improve, even with the occasional support of tipsters. Paid tipsters are usually not highly recommended because any good betting professional would make more money by spending their time finding and placing bets rather than sharing them and charging for them.
