Is Sportyy a bookmaker?
No, we are not a bookmaker. We are a tipster service that provide picks.
May I give you my money so that you can manage it for me?
No, we don’t manage money, we give advice.
What is the “bankroll”?
It’s the capital a bettor decides to set aside for sports betting and it’s also his maximum risk. Sportyy decides how much to risk on every pick as a percentage of the bankroll.
Which bookmakers do you recommend to bet with?
The best option is to have a wide range of bookies so that you can have access to the best average odds. In the long run there is a significant difference between betting with just 1 or 2 bookies instead of 6 or 7. In order to decide where we will bet it´s important to consider these 3 factors:
1. The safety of our deposits. There are bookmakers that offer very high odds but their financial strength and reliability are very doubtful. If you have any doubt with a certain bookie you can visit www.sportsbookreview.com and www.bookmakersreview.com to check if your deposits might be at risk.
2. High odds.
Do I have to place the bet with the bookmaker you mention in the pick?
No, that is the bookie that -within the Sportyy bookies range offers the highest price at the moment we publish the pick. However, odds change constantly. We include a link to an odds comparison site with every pick so that you can check your bookies online prices.
How can I benefit from your picks?
Here are 3 ways in which you can use our picks:
1. Follow our picks literally i.e. the winner and the stake we suggest. This is the option we strongly recommend.
2. You can follow our picks but you might want to bet a different stake, more or less conservative than our suggestion.
3. Use our picks just as a source of quality information and you decide whether you place the bet or not.
Why do odds drop after you launch the pick?
This happens mainly in tennis because the liquidity offered by the bookies isn’t as high as in Football. The reason for the drop is the great number of bettors who follow our picks and the credibility we have gained since june 2010. After a pick is published the quickest bettors will get the best odds. However, even if you aren’t quick enough and don’t get top odds you should be able to make a profit if you follow our picks.
In any case, at Sportyy we don’t publish picks just after the bookmakers have published their odds on a particular match. The reason is that the liquidity is very low and the inmense majority of our users couldn’t get that odds, nor even close ones. Bookmakers don’t want to comitt mistakes and they accept very low bets at the beginning. They fear they might have have offered an out of the market price. To sum up, although they are real odds, the liquidity is minimum and the variation of that price can be huge as the market hasn’t been created yet.
No. Past performance isn’t a guarantee of future performance. We are confident that our method, strategy and experience will earn money for you with our picks, but we cannot assure it.
If I follow your picks, shall I win money every month?
No. Our objective is for you to earn money in the long-run. There are no tipsters that win money every month without exception. There can be bad runs, as well as good ones. We think that 6 months is a reasonable time period to ensure you win money with our picks, net of subscription costs. If you are following all our picks and you don’t make money in 6 months then we are doing something wrong. For that reason we are giving a free 6-month guarantee subscription extension within the Tennis Premium package.
What’s the difference between using a Fixed Bankroll and a Rolling Bankroll?
ROLLING Bankroll: You update your bankroll after every pick. It means that if there are profts you reinvest them and if there are losses your bankroll is reduced. If our initial Bankroll is 1,000 € and we win 30 € in the first bet our following bankroll will be 1,030 €. If in the second bet our stake is 4% our next bet will be 4% of 1,030 = 41.2 €.
FIXED Bankroll: You always use the initial bankroll to calculate your bet amount. It’s as if you spent the money you have won or replaced the money you have lost. If our initial Bankroll is 1,000 € and we win 30 € in the first bet our following bankroll will also be 1,000 €. If in the second bet our stake is 4% our next bet will be 4% of 1,000 = 40.0 €.
At Sportyy, although the charts we show are made using a Fixed Bankroll strategy, we strongly recommend using a Rolling Bankroll strategy. If things go well you capitalize on your profits and growth can be exponential. And if they go wrong you reduce the risks progressively. Obviously, if you want to spend the money you win you will have to use a Fixed Bankroll strategy.
What is the difference between bankroll “Performance” (Return on Capital) and “ROI”?
The bankroll performance measures how much your bankroll has grown while the ROI (Return on Investment) or yield tells you how much you have won for each euro that has been bet. A 15% ROI means that for every 100 euro you have bet you have won 15. It’s a widely used variable in the sports betting world. Here is an example:
Initial Bankroll: 6,000 €
Final Bankroll: 14,000 €
Profits: 8,000 €
Total waged: 75, 000 €
Bankroll Performance (ROC) = 8,000 / 6,000 = 133.3%
ROI = 8,000 / 75,000 =10.67%
What is the “Strike rate”?
It’s the division of the number of successful picks and the total number of picks. Although we include this figure in our statistics, it’s not very relevant data on its own. You can win money with a 20% strike rate if the average odds are very high. It’s not one of our objectives to have a high strike rate.
