What is a Betting Syndicate?
There’s just something about the word “syndicate” that conjures up the imagination. You picture shadowy figures wearing fedoras and long coats with popped collars sneaking about in the dark, participating in some dark, seedy underworld that you can only imagine. It’s a word used to refer to organised crime families and people involved in criminal conspiracies. In fact, syndicates and conspiring go together like peanut butter and jelly.
Luckily, in the context of sports betting, the word syndicate represents something else entirely. In the world of gambling, these tight-knit organisations spend all of their time crunching numbers in Excel and simulating games with analytic models, not breaking kneecaps and making offers that can’t be refused.
Despite lacking both the violence and glamour of their underworld namesakes, sports betting syndicates are a serious business that requires the full dedication of each of their members to experience any success. One would think that starting a corporation with your buddies for the purposes of betting on sports would be a blast. After all, what’s better than sitting around watching the festivities with your friends? In reality, the day-to-day operations of a betting syndicate resemble a hedge-fund operation more than gambling.
Simply put, a betting syndicate is a group of people working together in an effort to quickly identify value in the odds, capitalise off of line movements, and make a living through sports betting. These organisations come in all shapes and sizes, though they all share the same mission. To profit off of a mostly ignorant betting public.
The way betting syndicates approach sports gambling is comparable to a day trader or hedge fund manager. Members spend upwards of seventy hours a week analysing the betting market and watching for line movements across numerous sports books.
When a line changes, the syndicate springs into action, calculating what the move is worth and attempting to place their bets at the most advantageous moment. A betting syndicate can have many different methods of operation, but the primary concept is identifying mis-priced assets and exploiting them. Bets may become mis-priced due to a mistake on behalf of the bookmakers, or in response to the uneducated betting public.
The professional line shoppers recognise these exploitable odds through sophisticated analysis of past events and weighing competitor’s strengths and weaknesses. If their analytics are accurate, exploiting weak lines is a cakewalk. They merely wait for the odds to reach a point when the implied probability is less than the actual likelihood determined by their process, and then jump on any wager that carries positive value.
In fact, they spend no time at all trying to handicap winners. No matter what fluctuations of the outcomes take place during any small sample size, as long as they stick to the maths, they can expect to profit over the long run.
What is the minimum investment?
Minimum investment is £1,000.
You say, you use a staking plan and i'll never run out of money?
Yes, when you invest. We will stake a maximum of 1% of that investment on each bet and we re-calculate our stakes every day. This means, if we are unable to generate profit, and we continue to lose, our balance will decrease, but so will your 1% maximum stake. Meaning, you will never run out of funds and you'll always be in the game. This works the other way too. As your balance increases, so does your stake, allowing us to take advantage when results are good.
How risky is this?
All betting and trading comes with risk. Just like the stock market when you invest in a business, there's no guarantee you'll earn any return on investment. However, using our 0.25-1% staking plan, you will NEVER run out of funds and you'll always be in the game.
You invest £2,000.
This means, when your money enters the pot, you'll start with £20 stake per bet (1.0% of £2,000). So, If, for example, we lose £100 on your first day. You will have £1,900 remaining in the pot.
The following day, we will maintain our 1.0% staking plan, meaning your new stake for the following day will be £19.00 (1.0% of £1,900).
Should you continue to lose, your balance will decrease, but so will your stake amount, meaning, you will never run out of money.
However, this works the other way too! As your balance increases, so does your stake & profit when we perform well.
Essentially, you're investing in the information we're betting on, and not the staking plan. The staking plan is a tool used to minimize loses & maximize profits.

Can I view the bets being placed?
To protect our systems & information, we do not show individual names, events or bet selections. Results displayed are based on daily profit & loss results.
What is a value bet?
A value bet is the type of trade we are always looking to place. It’s essentially any bet where you believe the true probability of your selection winning is greater than the odds reflect. As a crude example, if you thought a team had a greater than 50% chance of winning an upcoming match, and you were offered even money odds (1:1) on them winning, that would represent a value bet. If you thought the team had a less than 50% chance of winning, it would be a “bad” bet.
