Welcome to our Trademate Sports review where we test out this value betting software designed to find bets with a profitable edge.
We have reached the end of our Trademate Sports review after testing the software for just over four months. On the whole we have had a positive experience, but we have picked up on a few things that we feel 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 has been a joy to use, with the interface being extremely user friendly and easy to use. It takes care of tracking bets, results and compiling statistics and graphs automatically, so all you have to do is place the bet at the bookmaker and register the trade on the software.
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.
The main issue we found was that our starting bank was not big enough. We feel 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.

There is a seperate service available exclusively for Scandinavian citizens, which offers access to the Trademate software at a fraction of the standard price.
It covers three bookmakers; Svenska Spel, Danske Spill & Norsk Tipping, which at the time of writing do not limit the stakes of winning players.
The idea is to build up a bankroll with this service before moving on to betting at more European bookmakers. It's a great opportunity if you live in either Norway, Sweden, or Denmark as you are free to value bet as much as you'd like without worrying about having your accounts closed.
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.
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. Any smaller than that and we feel it would be a struggle to make enough profit to cover the membership fees.
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.
Trademate Sports Review: Update Three
5th June 2018
It's been a great month for our Trademate Sports review with a profit of £238.91 added to the bank, which when added to the small loss from the previous two months gives us an overall profit of £214.73.
The football and rugby bets have had three out of three profitable months now and profits are building up nicely for both of those. However, all three of the US sports have not been performing well so we have decided to remove those from our Tradefeed for the remainder of the review.
We've noticed tennis bets appearing on the feed now that the new season is underway and these have had a great start with a profit of £121 from the 9 bets that we have placed so far.

We are going to continue testing the software for a further month without the American sports and will be back next month with an update.
Trademate Sports Review: Update Two
29th April 2018
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.

The Trademate tool itself has been a joy to use so far, now we just need it to generate a profit for us. Hopefully we will see some better results over the coming month. We'll report back soon with our latest results.
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.
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:
Live score updates and key statistics of any game can be found in the "Game Centre" and this can also be set up to send alerts to your desktop.
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.
