The Wizard Of Big Odds Review: High Priced Horse Racing Tips

The Wizard Of Big Odds Review

The Wizard of Big Odds is a horse racing tipster service which focuses on finding value in high priced horses.

The "Wizard" fell in love with the sport as a youngster and after spending some time working in a bookmakers, he decided to gamble professionally for a living.

He claimed to have done very well doing this for many years and was one of the original Betfair 500 who were hit with the premium charge of 40% on winnings. After being restricted at most bookmakers, he decided to start tipping horses for a living.

Interestingly, he also bought a racehorse for himself last year (C'est No Mour) and it went on to win over £31,000 in prize money.

Since joining the Tipsters Empire platform in July 2018, he had recorded a profit of £2,865.22 to £10 stakes at a very impressive ROI of 43.4% at the time we started our review.

As many of the tips were priced at high odds, the strike rate for the service was quite low at 14.7%, so we knew it was going to be a case of patiently waiting for the big wins to come in. 

Tips were available via a text message which has a link to the member's area, where there is more information behind why the Wizard chose the selection. Alternatively, they could be received by email.

A starting bank of 150 points was advised and stakes were advised with each selection.

We seemed to hit a bad patch during our first trial of the service and we ended up awarding a fail rating. However, Tipster's Empire have since asked us to take another look at the service, as they say the tipster made a great job of bouncing back.

In total, they reported a profit of 271 points at an ROI of 34% for 2019 and 9 out of the 12 months were profitable. The tipster even managed to hit a 100/1 winner and two 50/1 winners within one year.

We will be tracking tips for the service in a second trial over the next few months to see if there is any proof in the pudding.

Trial 1: Month One Results

It was an interesting start to our review of The Wizard of Big Odds service. It was a winning month but we had trouble getting the advised odds which had an effect on the amount of profit that we were able to make.

At the advised odds we would have made a profit of 8.75 points, whereas at the available odds we only made 2.15 points profit. It would have perhaps been better just betting at Betfair SP as this would have resulted in 7.76 points profit. 

There was an important announcement made by the service that it was now going to be closed to new members so that there is more of a chance for existing members to attain the advertised odds. There is now a waiting list to subscribe to the service.

Trial 1: Month Two Results

Trial 2: Month One Results

It was a tricky start in our second trial of The Wizard of Big Odds with a 13.87 point loss at the advised odds. However, the service managed to make an excellent profit of 17.93 points at Betfair SP.

A couple of horses had drifted way out before the start of the race. One that we had recorded odds at 7.00 started with a BSP of 24.46 and another from 11.00 to 21.61. This means betting at BOG bookmakers would have considerably boosted our profit.

Review Summary

We had great expectations of The Wizard of Big Odds service when we started our review. The stats seemed very impressive and we had always found Tipster's Empire services to be honest and transparent with results.

Unfortunately, it turned out to be a bit of a let down. Not only did we lose just over a third of our betting bank, we found it a real struggle to bet at the odds advised in the emails. Because of this, we lost just under 24 points more betting at the available odds.

The advised odds were rarely available and with the higher priced selections inparticular, we found the odds had often fallen dramatically. For example, we had horses tipped at 40/1 drop right down to 25/1, which would definitely have a big effect on our bottom line in the long run. 

The tipster does appear to know his field well, providing detailed write-ups with every selection. The fact that the odds were dropping as soon as his emails went out could well mean that he is on to something, or the bookes were on to him!

Around six months on, we decided to run a re-trial to see if things had improved. What we found was that although we weren't struggling to obtain odds anymore, we still didn't make a profit during the trial.

In our second trial we lost 65 points which worked out at 43.3% of our bank.

Sometimes it is worth giving a tipping service a second chance, but sadly, we made the decision to stick with our original "fail" rating of The Wizard of Odds.
