Trademate Sports Review: Month One Update

Trademate Sports Review

The Trademate Sports tool scans bookmaker markets to find overpriced bets for you to take advantage of.

It works by calculating the true odds of a sports event and then shows an edge percentage, so you can instantly see the value of the bet when it is flagged up.

The scanner monitors odds 24/7 and posts available bets based on your filters once they are available, so you can bet whenever you want, on whatever you want.

The value betting service was co-founded by professional poker player Jonas Gjelstad who grew a sports betting bankroll from $10,000 to $1,000,000 in one year.

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 find 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:

Trial 2: Month One Results

Our original Trademate Sports review took place more than two years ago back in 2018, so we decided to do a re-trial and take a slightly different tack to our first trial.

We had a great start with £4,671 profit banked in the first month at an ROI of 4.8%.

We had only gone in with £1,000 last time and we had later been advised that the service works much better with a larger bank spread across as many bookmakers as possible. This would give more betting opportunities and hopefully result in more profit.

On that basis, we went in with £10,000 in our second trial split across 24 bookmakers and 2 betting exchanges.

Unfortunately, the software didn't have the option to download our results in a CSV file, but we did have some stats and a graph that it had put together.

We could instantly see an improvement using this service with a bigger starting bank. Hopefully results continue to be as good as the review goes on.

Trial 1: Month One Results

Despite our overall review ending in a profit, month one ended 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. It was quite an eye opener and showed that the NHL bets were the sole cause behind our loss.

From 16 NHL bets, 10 lost, 2 pushed and 2 won to give us a total loss of £87.00.

  • Basketball: +£38.83
  • Ice Hockey: -£87.00
  • Football: +£24.02
  • Rugby Union: +£6.00
  • Total: -£18.15

Trial 1: Month Two Results

Just a small loss of £6.03 in month two gave us an overall loss of £24.18 so far.

The month started out well and we built up almost £150 profit mid way before plummeting back down. There were quite a few baseball bets starting to appear on the trade list once the MLB season was underway, but we only managed to make a profit from 4 out of 15 of them at that point.

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 had been doing well with 2 out of 2 profitable months, although it wasn't quite enough to cover the losses from the other sports and make an overall profit.

  • Basketball: -£45.87
  • Ice Hockey: -£61.30
  • Football: +£75.91
  • Rugby Union: +£53.75
  • Baseball: -£46.67

Trial 1: Month Three Results

A great third month saw us bank an excellent £238.91 profit which when added to the small loss from the previous two months gave us an overall profit of £214.73.

The football and rugby bets had three out of three profitable months at this stage and profits were building up nicely for both of those. However, all three of the US sports were not performing well so we decided to remove those from our Tradefeed for the remainder of the review.

We also noticed tennis bets appearing on the feed as the new season was underway and they had a great start with a profit of £121 from the 9 bets.

Trial 1: Month Four Results

We reached the end of our Trademate Sports review after testing the software for just over four months. On the whole we had a positive experience, but we picked up on a few things that we felt would help to get the best out of the software and give a higher return.

We started with a £1,000 starting bank with £100 split across 10 bookmakers and finished with a profit of £123.59, which is a 12.4% increase to the bank.

The software itself had been a joy to use, with the interface being extremely user friendly and easy to use. It took care of tracking bets, results and compiling statistics and graphs automatically, so all you had to do is place the bet at the bookmaker and register the trade on the software.

Trademate Sports Review - Register Trade

We set the software to search for value bets with a minimum of 2% edge and to begin with we started with all sports. Later on we decided to exclude American sports as they weren't performing well, but it may have had something to do with it being the beginning of the season for some US sports.

Trademate Sports Review Graph

The main issue we found was that our starting bank was not big enough. We felt that to get the best out of the software you would need to start with perhaps £5,000 - £10,000 at the core level.

This way, you would be able to spread the bank around a lot more bookmakers and the software would be able to find much more betting opportunities.

We also found that you have to be either on your PC a lot to keep an eye out for new bets, although there is a notification system for desktops. The notification system for mobiles is set to be ready for the new winter football season, which we feel would be a great addition.

Trademate CEO Marius gave us some useful advice:

First, the key to performing well with Trademate is to get in a large turnover, because there is only a small edge on each game 2-5%, how much profit one can expect to make is a function of the number of trades x stake per trade x closing edge. When I use TM for around 6-8 hours a week I manage to get in around 80-100 trades per week. Our most active users are able to get in 4-500 per week. But then also spend much more time than me. 

Second, an important factor is the starting bankroll. €1k is the minimum one should start out with. Smaller bank --> Smaller stake sizes. To make up for this one needs to put in more trades to reach the same turnover as a person with a higher starting bank and stake sizes, but fewer trades. 

Third, value betting has in its nature a lot of variance. So getting in a larger volume of trades is important for the good and bad swings to cancel out and leave you with the expected value.

Naturally having access to more bookies = more edges in general.

Review Summary

Trademate Sports is a well-designed bit of kit and far better than many similar value betting tools that we have seen on the market. After four months we banked £123.59 profit using just a £1000 starting bank.

We found that it would be more suited to those that are able to start with betting bank of around £5,000 or more to get the best out of the software.

We were pleased to be able to make a profit from our small bankroll and as you can see from our performance chart there is a clear upward trend in our results. With more money in the starting pot, this software could really get to work and we feel it is certainly worthy of a pass rating.
