Choosing Your Perfect Horse Racing Tipster

Posted February 1, 2015 | By Tim @ Betting Gods

When paying for horse racing tips we all want our investment to reap a healthy profit – but there are many other factors to consider.

Betting Bank

How much money you can afford to set aside for betting should always be considered. As all tipsters go through poor runs – you must start with the advised betting bank and follow the staking plan of the tipster. Never be tempted to chase early losses, if they occur, as making money from horse racing tipsters is a long-term plan.

Opening bookmaker accounts

Most tipsters advise bets at the best odds with whichever bookmaker those odds are with. Therefore it is important to have accounts with all these bookmakers. This can take a while to set-up; however it usually comes with the advantage of lots of bonus bets that often come hand-in-hand with opening new accounts.

However, if you don’t fancy opening lots of accounts, you may wish to consider choosing a tipster that just advises bets on the exchanges like Betfair.

How many bets a month?

If you like to bet most days and/or have more than one bet a day – then it’s probably not a good idea to subscribe to a service that only advises 10-15 bets a month. The chances are you might get bored between tips and waste some of your hard earned profits. Equally, if you are a disciplined punter, you should be looking for a tipster with the highest return on investment (ROI) – and perhaps maximising profits by increasing your per point stake (don’t forget to increase your starting bank. proportionately though).

Strike rate

If you’re a punter who loves having lots of winners then you should look for a tipster who has a high strike rate. Equally, if you hate backing odds-on shots and favourites, you might want to choose a tipster who specialises in “value selections”.

Win or each-way

Many tipsters only advise win bets – but advice each-way bets, too. It’s a personal choice!
