The main view
Below image is the main view. Here you’ll see a list of continuously updated value bets.
The navigation menu
The navigation menu gives you quick access to the most important pages. If you click on ‘Bets‘ you’ll access the main view where the value bets are presented. When clicking on ‘Menu‘ in the middle you can access ‘Options’, ‘Reports’, ‘Help’, ‘Community’ and ‘Logout’. From the navigation menu, you can also click on the ‘Tracker‘ which will take you to the Bet Tracker where you can see all your logged bets.
The presented value bet
The value bets are presented as separate “cards” listed according to your predefined settings.
The bet details view
When you click on a value bet you will see the bet details panel. Here you can edit the odds and stake if you have to. In this view, you will get all the information you need to place the bet. You also have the option to bet, log, snooze or remove the bet. You don’t have to calculate the value bet, it is done for you.
The Bet button: Bet opens a new browser tab to the bookmaker. Currently, you might end up at the match, but often just to the bookmaker start page. This will improve in the future.
The Log button: Click this after placing a successful bet. It will be copied and saved to your personal Bet Tracker.
Snooze: The snooze function will hide the value bet for 15 minutes.
Remove: By clicking remove you will remove the bet or the entire match (depending on your predefined settings) if you don’t want to bet for any reason. You can also just remove the particular odds, see Options).
In the Options view you can customize your betting strategy and risk level, like Kelly stake sizing and max stake.
You can also modify general app functionality.
When you have successfully placed a bet, you don’t want to bet on that match again since this would increase your money-at-risk beyond what you have decided beforehand. This is why the default setting is to hide the entire match after a placed bet. You can change this
Sort value bets
You can either show highest value first (recommended), bets closest to match start, furthest from match start (if you want to focus on opening odds) or most recently discovered (for maximum speed).
Open value bets
Keeping a tab open for each bookmaker enabled you to stay logged in longer. You can also open all bets in the same tab, or a new tab every time. A tip if you’re on desktop: Drag the tab to another window, then align this window and the ValueBetting window side by side. This gives you a great overview while betting.
Get an audio alert when new value bets appear.
Sports and markets
In the Options view you can also click on the link ‘Sports and markets” to select which sports and markets you want to display.
When changing settings, remember to click the ‘Save’ button.
Filters & Bookmakers
Here you add the bookmakers you will be using. Click in the box with bookmaker names, and you will be shown a list with more bookmakers to add. You can also just start typing the name of the bookmaker and it then can be added by pressing return. See our list of of recommended value betting bookmakers.
You can also filter the list of value bets so you only get bets you’re interested in placing. In ValueBetting Starter plan you can use up to two filters, and ValueBetting Pro users can have up to four filters.
For example, you might want to create a filter with “early markets”. Matches that start in 6+ hours but with a high minimum value percentage, let’s say 7%. (You don’t want to show low value bets that start in 6 hours, they might change a lot in that time, and not always to your benefit). You can also create the opposite filter: matches that start soon, with a lower minimum value percentage.
When you start you only have one simple default filter, sorted with the highest value first.
Bets matching all your filters are combined and then sorted according to your your default sort order. If you want bets from one filter to always be shown at the top, overriding sorting, you need to select “pinned to top”.
Pinned to top
When the Pinned box is checked, value bets found with this filter will always be sorted above all other filters, overriding your default sort order (see second image below). This can be useful if you for example want to show bets from a particular bookmaker at the top, even if there are other bookmakers with higher value bets.
The below image above illustrates a list of value bets sorted in order of highest to lowest value, except for Bet365 bets which is pinned to top.
In the Bookmaker tab, you can specify currency, rounding, tax settings and domain for each bookmaker individually. Here you can also specify commission settings if you use betting exchanges (only available in ValueBetting Pro). The drop down meny only shows your pre-selected bookmakers which you have enabled in the Filters tab.
Here you select your base currency and rounding on all bookmakers. This currency will also be the display currency in the BetTracker and reports. You can have another currency and rounding for each bookmaker, which you can change in Bookmaker settings. Also, select how many hours before or after UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) you are. You can for example enter +2 for UK, or -9 for PST. Make sure that the “time now” value is correct.
