The Professor’s Formula Review: BSP Horse Racing Tips


The Professor's Formula offers horse racing tips with a BSP (Betfair Starting Price) service. 

Advantages of this are not having to rush to get bets on before the odds are cut and potentially being able to automate the selections using a betting bot.

"The Professor" has been providing tips since joining Tipster Street in September 2015. The service focuses on all weather and flat turf racing and runs 12 months of the year.

A starting bank of 100 points is recommended and selections are staked at either 1, 2 or 3 points each

There are an average of 24 tips per month and they are emailed out between 9.00-11.00am each morning.

Month One Results

A good start saw us bank 6.07 points at an ROI of 7.1%. There were 42 selections and 17 of them returned a profit, which worked out as a strike rate of 40.5%.

The majority of the selections had BSP odds lower than 5.0, so you can see how these selections pushed the average odds up to 9.50.

Month Two Results

A loss of 28.1 points in month two wiped out the profit we made in the first month and left our bank 22.03 points down.

We found that by filtering out bets at odds over 10.00 would have given us an overall profit of 11.97 points, so this may have be an option although it had not been recommended by the tipster.

Review Summary

On a positive note, the service had been very easy to follow and did not have the usual problems that tipping services have with bookies and being able to get the advised odds. It also had the usual Tipster Street professionalism.

Unfortunately, due to two out of three losing months, it was a "Fail" rating for The Professor's Formula.
