About Vernon Grant and VG Tips


I’m Vernon Grant

Follow me and beat the bookie every year
VG Tips – Profitable Punting Personified

After 25 years as a Sports TV producer, for Sky Sports, Channel 4, ITV & BBC
, I turned what had long been a hobby into a profitable occupation. Sports betting has provided me with an additional annual income each year since 1998 and allowed me only six years later to buy my first home in sun kissed southern Spain.

How do I work?

I’m a non believer in so called ‘systems’. I don’t put my faith in alleged inside info. I study the form of thoroughbred racehorses and football teams and stand or fall by my own judgement.
What I do believe in is research.

I do the homework so that you don’t have to.

Ask yourself…

Would you like to beat the bookie at the end of each year? Would you like to become a fellow profitable punter? Would you like to learn how to bet better?

If the answers are ‘YES’ your next action is to click on the orange link below

I want to get WINNING tips!

Why should you pay for tips?

Why do I charge for VG Tips when there are other profitable punters offering their tips for free? Good question.

At VG Tips you will get more than simply the name of a horse or a football team. My service is much more extensive. I happen to believe the level of hard work I put in deserves remuneration. Do you work hard? Do you do so for free? No, of course you don’t.

Beating the bookie is a team effort. The truth is that I happily recommend fellow long term tipsters and punters who offer their own tips for free.

That is because you should not put all your eggs in one basket.

When a handful of profitable punters agree on a potentially profitable bet… that’s the time to be on.

What about luck?

Yes, all punters need luck from time to time.

But knowledge is power and I pass on my knowledge so that you, like me, can make an annual profit.


So what do you get?

* Regular ‘Something for the Weekend’ racing & football tips

Get exclusive access to sports betting tips… and much more

Bet less. Win more. And make a profit…

And there’s something else members receive. The truth.

When there is nothing worth betting on, I tell you that.

Yes, you read that correctly. Some days of the week you’ll receive nothing from me!

The biggest mistake people make is to bet for the sake of it.

The real losers are punters who bet every day, on anything. Don’t do it!

I tell members to be selective, including with my tips. Take time to read my analysis and comments. You decide if you fancy betting on a specific horse, or in a particular football match. I won’t tell you that you must bet. But I do tell you when you should not.

Bet too often and you will lose overall. It’s akin to eating too many cream cakes. It’s not good for you!

Do as I do. Be patient. Wait for the right bet, not any bet. That way you will ensure that, more often than not over a period of a year, you will beat the bookie.

THIS is the route to profitable punting. Come and join me on that journey.


What the Bookies say

“Vernon started with a bank of just £20 with me and has been a royal pain ever since to my horse race traders! That he doesn’t bet daily is a blessing. With punters like Vern, I need to find another job. Click on the photo to place your bets with me.”
