How do we know if we can beat the bookmaker? That's easy: just look at our bank balance. But how do we know if we've not just been lucky? More specifically, how do we know that someone who says he can do it, and who is selling his 'expertise', can keep doing it again and again, through talent, skill and hard work? This book examines the techniques available to answer that question, to identify those qualities and to help the punter find value for money in an industry that appears to be largely built on trust and the influence of chance; to uncover the truth about sports tipsters and ultimately how to find the best tipsters - the 'Black Cats'.

How to find a Black Cat in a Coal Cellar Investigates:

  • Why betting favourites can lose less money than longshots.
  • Why some bookmakers are more efficient than others
  • Why some bookmakers like winners whilst others do not
  • Why the most generous bookmakers might be the hardest to beat
  • How a punter can make money from knowing nothing about sport How to analyse a betting record or a history of tips
  • How to tell the difference between chance and skill
  • Why some profits are more reliable than others
  • Why a superior return does not always mean a superior tipster
  • Why the cost and quality of betting advice usually have nothing in common
  • Why some sports are more profitable than others
  • Why some tipsters stop winning
  • What some tipsters will do to get what they want
