Sporting Life tipping record: How our recommended bets have performed

John Higgins

A look at how the Sporting Life recommended bets have performed in May 2019.

We pride ourselves on our transparent betting record so if we've tipped something in our 'recommended bets' section at the top of a betting preview, it will appear on this page.

Points system explained

We use a points system, ranging from 0.5 to 10, to help underline confidence in a selection and to help you weight your stakes. In other words, if your maximum bet is £100 and your normal bet is £10, you might have £10 on a 1pt win selection, £10 each-way for 1pt each-way, £20 for 2pts win, and so on.

Points staked also enable us to keep a fully transparent P&L, which you'll see below, but should be considered a guide only. Only bet what you can afford, and if you are concerned about your gambling please call the National Gambling Helpline on 0808 8020 133, or visit begambleaware.org.
