Using proxies etc to get round betting restrictions.

Living or being in another country can make betting much more difficult. For example most UK bookmakers are blocked from Spain. There are a few that have taken the Spanish licence such as Bet365 who aren’t but the majority are.


How can you get around this? There are various ways but the first thing you will need is a betting account registered in England. Say for example you have a Bet Victor account in the UK but are in Spain and want to bet. You visit the site and you’ll see something like this.



How can you get round this? Below a few options are listed


1. You can just go with a service that provides you with an out of the box solution such as Identity Cloaker. With Identity Cloaker you install a program that allows you to choose one of their proxy servers before you browse the web. They have proxies in various places and you can set it up so that just one browser uses the proxy and others do not. They also have a firefox extension to make that easier.


2.  Set up your own proxy using a server. Identity Cloaker uses SSH tunneling to and if you have a server you can do this yourself. My personal experience with the provider Memset has been excellent and their basic miniserver starts at 5€ per month. Once you have you can then use this server with a proxy. There are various tutorials on the web to explain how to do this such as this.  The downside of this is that on windows you have to open up putty and make the SSH connection and then open your browser. I have firefox set up to use the a proxy server and use it only for this purpose.


3. Another way is to use a simple proxy provider such as My Private Proxy. These provide you with a proxy server which your traffic is then routed through. I was able to set this up on my mobile as the proxy for the wireless network and surf the web as if I was in the UK. The downside was it was not easy to switch between using the proxy and not. If I turned it off then it did not remember my details and then I had to enter in the username and password when I set it up again. Currently I am trying to set this up with Firefox on my mobile to hopefully have one browser that uses a proxy but attempts to do this have not been successful. I’ll post again when they are.



Hopefully this may be of some use as hiding your location can be useful as the betting websites are much more stricter than they used to be on geo tracking.


Allsvenskan added as a league and league tables tab

The Swedish Allsvenskan has been added today. Corner stats and normal stats as well. The season runs until late October so plenty of time to get up to speed.


Also have added a new feature so you can see the current league table for a league when you are viewing the console. In the image below you can see the tab pinned to the right hand side of the screen.

Click on the tab and the league table will appear as below. Click again and it will go back to the starting position.

La Segunda Playoffs round up

Hmmmmmm. In the previous post I wrote

The first leg, of the final and semi final, is the one to concentrate on as in all 12 first leg matches no team has scored more than 1 goal. 9 of the 12 matches have been under 1.5 goals.


The semi final first legs finished 1-1 and 0-3 and then in the final the first leg was 3-1. A relative goalfest with 18 goals scored in the 6 playoff matches. The bet chosen was a loser.


Good to see Las Palmas in La Primera but a lot of travelling for teams to do to play them. I wrote an article on travelling back in 2010 for The Betting School.

La Segunda Playoffs

After the madness of the final day of the season in the Spanish Segunda, where 90th minute goals decided promotion and relegation, we are left with the playoffs.  You can see how it all happened with the highlights on the Liga Adelante youtube page




The prize of getting in La Primera is massive for the clubs in Spain so you get some very cagey matches. There is not a massive amount of data here as this has only been going for 4 seasons. It follows a similar format as the English playoffs and there are 2 semi-finals and a final but each tie is 2 legs including the final. The first leg, of the final and semi final, is the one to concentrate on as in all 12 first leg matches no team has scored more than 1 goal. 9 of the 12 matches have been under 1.5 goals and there have been four 0-0s, five 1-0s (3 to the home team and 2 to the away) and three 1-1 draws. The home team has won just 3 of the 12 matches.


Looking at the odds around over 2.5 appeals but most of all the under 2 goals looks the pick of the bets.  Bet Victor offer 1.98 on both the first legs being under 2 goals and Pinnacle offer 1.99 and 1.97 so the double can be backed at 3.92 which looks decent value in that none of the previous 12 first leg matches have gone over 2 goals. If either game has 2 goals then that bit will be a push/void.


Double of under 2 goals in both first leg matches @ 3.92 with Bet Victor and Pinnacle

There will not be weekly roundups of these stats now but rather just monthly ones as less leagues are playing. Also The Both Teams To Score and Both Teams To Score And Win stats will now be removed and won’t be tweeted again as they had a strike rate of 58% which is probably a bit too low.


A full roundup of the stats will take place in a week or so.

Europa League Winner

Sevilla won the Europa League and a big profit overall. Advised bets were



15th February

Villarreal @ 20/1 with Tote, VC, Fred and BF Sportsbook (2pts)

Sevilla @ 19/1 with Bwin (1pt)

Sporting Lisbon @ 33/1 with VC and Coral (1pt)

Athletic Bilbao @ 28/1 with BF Sportsbook and Ladbrokes (1/2pt)

Totttenham @ 16/1 with most (1/2pt) – Coral have them at 20/1 but no-one else is close to that


15th May

Dnipro @ 3.75 with Bet Victor (2pts)


13pts profit on the Sevilla win and that’s now 7 of the last 12 Europa League winners coming from Spain. Not convinced that trend will continue next year as there are now 5 Spanish teams in the Champions League and unless any of them don’t progress from the group their UEFA cup entrants are might not be strong enough.

2 winners and 2 losers for this but no prices available for the matches that were playoffs etc such as the Serie B match. The Spanish Segunda finishes this weekend and there will be a roundup then and less tips sent.

Great week for the tweeted stats with 6/7 winning. The League Two playoff was a winner but don’t have the odds for that.




Monaco were a very big price for under 2.5 and you would expect more goals at this time of the season but luckily not in the games selected. The full results can be seen here and the last weeks results are below.

Europa League round up

On 15th February there were recommendations for the Europa League outrights which were


Villarreal @ 20/1 with Tote, VC, Fred and BF Sportsbook (2pts)

Sevilla @ 19/1 with Bwin (1pt)

Sporting Lisbon @ 33/1 with VC and Coral (1pt)

Athletic Bilbao @ 28/1 with BF Sportsbook and Ladbrokes (1/2pt)

Totttenham @ 16/1 with most (1/2pt) – Coral have them at 20/1 but no-one else is close to that


The draw was a bit of a pain as Sevilla getting Villarreal scuppered those big bets.

Altogether there was a 5pt outlay and if Sevilla go on to win that would be a 14pt profit. Sevilla are big favourites to lift the trophy so it makes sense to probably cover any possible losses here. Bet Victor offer 3.75 on Dnipro to lift the trophy (apparently Boyle’s are offering 4.2 but I can’t believe that or that anyone would be able to get any money on at that price). A simple 2 point bet on Dnipro at 3.75 guarantees no loss.




If Sevilla win the tournament then it’s a 13pt profit and if Dnipro do then it’s an 0.5pt profit and a bit of disappointment.
