Trademate Sports Review: Update Two

Trademate Sports Review

It's been almost a scratch month in our Trademate Sports review with a small loss of £6.03, which makes it an overall loss of £24.18 so far.

The month started out well and we built up to a profit of almost £150 mid way through the month before plummeting back down. There have been quite a few baseball bets starting to appear on the trade list now that the MLB season is underway, but we've only managed to make a profit from 4 out of 15 of them so far.

Although we have seen an improvement in the Ice Hockey results after a poor performance last month, all of the American sports seem to be struggling. 

The football and rugby bets have been doing well with 2 out of 2 profitable months, although it hasn't quite been enough to cover the losses from the other sports and make an overall profit.

Trademate Sports Review: Update One

29th March 2018

It's been a slow start to our Trademate Sports review with a hoard of losing bets at the beginning of the month setting us back. We were pleased to see a swift recovery towards the end though and despite finishing in a losing position, a couple of winning bets could see us back on track again.

We have finished month one with a loss of -£18.15 after betting on 64 selections at a strike rate of 45.3%.

We decided to break down the profit/loss by sport, which interestly we could not find in the analytics section of the Trademate tool. It's quite an eye opener and shows that the NHL bets are the sole cause behind our loss this month.

From 16 NHL bets, 10 have lost, 2 pushed and 2 won to give us a total loss of £87.00. We won't give up on NHL just yet, but if it continues to perform poorly then we will consider removing Ice Hockey from our Tradefeed filters.

Trademate Sports Review: Introduction

28th February 2018

Trademate Sports is a value betting service co-founded by poker player and professional sports bettor, Jonas Gjelstad, who ran a documentary series last year where he grew a sports betting bankroll from $10,000 to $1,000,000 in one year.

The Trademate tool is designed to calculate the true odds of sports events and flag any selections up on the system when bookies have set their odds too high. It calculates an edge percentage so you can instantly see the value of the bet. The scanner monitors odds 24/7 and when any value bets are found they are listed on the Tradefeed and if enabled, they will also pop up on your desktop and/or make a bell sound.

Trademate Sports Review Stats

There are a number of sports included in the Trademate scanner, including football, basketball, American football, handball, rugby, baseball, tennis and eSports.

The software has customisable filters such as the sport, odds range, edge percentage and recommended leagues.

It supports 110 bookmakers and you can easily tick which ones you have access to, so that the software will only flag up bets at odds that you will be able to obtain. You can also set the available starting balance you have in each bookie and your total betting bank is calculated and displayed on the dashboard.

Clicking on a bet flagged up in the Tradefeed allows you to register the trade, which adds it to a bet tracker. The default staking system is the Kelly Criterion, which takes into account the edge, odds and bankroll to determine the bet size. The stake sizing can be adjusted in the settings according to your desired level of risk.

Once the event has finished, the result of the bet/trades are updated and the profit or loss is added to the balance. Statistics such as bank growth, total profit, ROI and number of trades are also calculated automatically on the dashboard.

This takes away the need for spreadsheets and manually updating results which is a big positive for us, although it would be handy if you could export results to a spreadsheet.

Here is a snapshot of the team's own Trademate software dashboard:

Membership Plans

There are three membership plans:

Trademate Nordics, which is for Scandinavian citizens only as it supports Scandinavian bookmakers and makes it possible to value bet without having stakes limited. This is priced at €30 per month.

Trademate Core is the entry level value betting tool and is ideal for building up a bankroll before moving into more advanced betting such as Asian Handicaps. This is priced at €120 per month.

Trademate Pro is designed for professional sports bettors or individuals that want to trade the Asian Handicap and/or Exchange markets. This is priced at €400 per month.


Our initial impression of the service is good; the software seems to work well and it is easy to navigate. The help centre has articles from sports betting fundamentals to more advanced topics and the team have put together tons of video guides demonstating the software and more aspects of value betting.

We are going to be testing the core product out, starting with a bank of £1000 split across 10 bookmakers. We have set the filters to find bets between the odds of 2.00 and 4.00 and a minimum edge of 2%.

We will report back with our first set of results in a month's time.
