The Professor’s Formula Review: BSP Horse Racing Tips

  • Goal Profits Rating
  • Rated 1.5 stars

Welcome to our The Professor's Formula review - A horse racing tipping service from Tipster Street that advises Betfair SP bets for flat and all-weather races


  • Easy service to follow with small amount of time needed
  • All tips advised to be bet at Betfair SP
  • Cons

  • Over 100 points down this year to date
  • After three months following tips from Betfair SP horse racing service, The Professor's Formula, we have decided to call it a day after a 26.3% reduction to our 100 point starting bank. Although this doesn't sound like a huge failure, the service has lost a total of 118.11 points in 2017 to date, which is an average loss of 9.84 points per month.

    The service records results to £25 per point, which works out at a loss of -£246.06 per month over the last nine months.

    If you were to take 2015 & 2016 results into account then the service is in profit by 216.6 points, but we don't have a crystal ball so there is no way of knowing if things will turn around for 2017 and beyond.

    A subscription to The Professor's Formula is priced at £3.79 for the first 30 days, followed by a payment of either £14.95 per month or £29.95 per quarter. There are also lifetime memberships available on request and a VIP club that gives access to all Tipster Street services for £59.95 per month.


    We would not recommend subscribing to this service due to the poor performance during our three month review and 2017 on the whole. 

    On a positive note, the service has been very easy to follow and doesn't have the usual problems that tipping services have with bookies and being able to get the advised odds. It also has the usual Tipster Street professionalism, with results regularly updated and no sign of masking poor results.

    Unfortunately it's a "Fail" rating for The Professor's Formula - finding a profitable BSP tipster is proving to be difficult but we will keep on searching! 

    The Professor's Formula Review: Update Two

    4th September 2017

    Month two of our Professor's Formula review has ended with a loss of 28.1 points, which wipes out the profit we made in the first month and leaves our bank 22.03 points down.

    As with last month we found that a few selections had a very high BSP, with the highest this month going off at odds of 85.00.

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

    The Professor's Formula Review: Update One

    29th July 2017

    It's been a good start to our Professor's Formula review with a profit of 6.07 points banked at an ROI of 7.1%. There were 42 selections this month and 17 of them returned a profit, which works out as a strike rate of 40.5%.

    One thing to note is there were a couple of selections that drifted to a high BSP, such as "Duggary" that went off at a whopping 194.76. 

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

    As a subscriber to the service you could opt to not bet on these selections if you would prefer a higher strike rate. On the other hand, if they did manage to win you could be looking at a huge payout!

    The Professor's Formula Review: Introduction

    27th June 2017

    It has been a while since we have reviewed a betting service from the Tipster Street platform, with the last one being Value Favs which received a four star pass rating. Today we are starting a review of another of their horse racing tipsters, The Professor's Formula, but the difference is this one is a BSP (Betfair Starting Price) service.

    This is great news for those of you that have had stakes limited or accounts closed at the bookies, as you can place all of the bets using a betting exchange such as Betfair.

    Some other advantages 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. Also, the BSP is very likely to be higher than the bookies' SP.

    "The Professor" has been providing tips for over two years and since joining Tipster Street in September 2015, they have delivered a profit of 255.39 points at an ROI of 20%, which includes a deduction of 5% commission.

    This works out as an average profit of 12 points per month.

    The service focuses on all weather and flat turf racing and runs 12 months a 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.​

    The service is priced at £3.79 for the first 30 days, followed by a payment of either £14.95 per month or £29.95 per quarter. There are also lifetime memberships available on request. 

    Tipster Street have a VIP club where you can access tips from all of their services for £59.95 per month, but as we have only approved one of their tipsters so far, we can't comment on whether this is good value or not as of yet.

    We will be following the service over the next three months and we will report back each month with an update of our results. Check back soon to see how we are getting on.
