It feels like far too long since our last review and I’m looking forward to having you all read this one! We have plenty of tipsters in the pipeline for a review and this particular tipster has been requested multiple times.

We decided to take a look at a free tipster after our last few all charge for their tips, so let’s dive straight in.

PinchBet (@pinchbet)

PinchBet provides free football tips both through their Twitter and also on their website pinchbet.com. These tips consist of both pre-match and in-play tips. In general the in-plays are posted on their Twitter account, with the pre-match tips being on their website. The account was started in early 2015 and has seen a gradual increase in their following and popularity with over 15,000 followers on their Twitter page. They rely on a variety of markets for their bets and also publish their results. Let’s see how they got on over the month of January.

Clearly an excellent month for those at PinchBet. Some impressive results. As mentioned they do mix it up with both in-play and pre-match tips which can also be broken down separately.

All round very good. As you can see they made profit both on the in-play and pre-match tips. The main focus by far is on the in-play, which is made clear by the significantly more tips posted. At the moment there is a huge market for in-play tipping and it seems to be one of the more popular ways to bet, PinchBet are certainly taking advantage of that.

There are a few things worth mentioning with these results. I anticipate that people will immediately be sceptical when they see such a large number of tips. Don’t get me wrong, 642 is a huge amount of bets over a month. However PinchBet did make it clear to their followers that they found a number of excellent in-play opportunities and this isn’t necessarily a normal number of bets for them over a month. It seemed as though some people were against this on Twitter, but in my eyes if you see a profitable spot, by all means take it! Betting is a game of small edges and missing out on what you consider to be good opportunities can be costly. It clearly worked out for them as well with the results they posted.

Staking

Generally PinchBet will stake anywhere between 10-20 euros for each tip. To make it consistent with other reviews I have put the results into GBP. I much prefer to see stakes around this size. Although some people will be staking larger, this amount will fall into the majority of people’s bankroll, therefore results when published are not unrealistic. For me it just doesn’t seem right when tipsters base their results off £100+ stakes! In gambling there naturally will be swings, both winning and losing ones, which is why it is important to manage your staking correctly. In general looking at PinchBet’s tips, it’s unlikely you will see big drops, so I would say staking 5% of your bankroll would be a fair amount. This is a reasonably large chunk to be using on each tip, however with the results and type of bets, I would expect this to build up reasonably quickly. Therefore if you were to follow their exact staking plan, I would say £400 is a reasonable bankroll to start with.

Transparency

This seems to be a rarity, especially amongst in-play tipsters, however PinchBet are extremely transparent and professional. They publish all of their results truthfully and are by no means afraid to own up to losses. You can find their statistics at pinchbet.com. The website is really worth checking out, there is lots of interesting information. You can see that since they started on 24/03/15, they have made a 5,098 Euro profit. Of course I cannot 100% verify this, but from what I have seen over this month I have no reason to believe that this isn’t completely truthful. They have shown an impressive 9.1% ROI over this period as well, which is around the mark you would expect a skilled football bettor to be.

Affiliation

With this being a hot topic in the tipping world at the moment, it’s always worth mentioning whether a tipster is an affiliate with bookmakers or not. PinchBet are affiliates with a number of bookmakers, however by no means to they push this in your face or post links with every tip they place. The links are only actually posted on their website under the ‘Free Bets & Offers’ tab. For me this really isn’t a concern. When the links are on a specific page on a website, an individual has to very consciously click on the link for the sign up offer. That way they aren’t relying on spewing out as many tips as possible with a link, hoping that someone will click on it by accident.

Final Verdict

I have to say I was really impressed with PinchBet. For a free service, what they provide is fantastic. They are very professional and clearly work hard to provide the best service for their customers. They regularly update their results whether they’re winning or losing. I certainly would recommend giving them a follow on Twitter and checking out their website to give them a try for yourself. I see no reason why they cannot keep up these impressive results over a longer period. The have shown great consistency throughout last year after all. I will certainly be keeping an eye on PinchBet and look forward to seeing more and more progression. I truly hope they will continue providing this good service. I have no reason at all not to give them a very solid rating of 9, which is very well deserved. Let us know what your experiences are with PinchBet!

I’d like to thank you all for taking the time to read this. Also big thanks to those at PinchBet for inviting us to review their service. As always it’s extremely enjoyable to follow new tipsters for a review. We have so many more to come and I am already looking forward to sharing them with you. You can also expect to see another tipster competition coming your way in the very near future. We’ll be following a slightly different structure to our previous one, however I’m sure you’ll still like it!

All the best
