Three tipsters took my eye this month.
October was a great month for basketball tipster Around The Orange Ball. 154 tips produced 17.6% ROI and completed 7 consecutive profitable months. He has had only 2 small losing months in his 11 months of tipping. They were -43pts and -30pts. That compares with an average winning month of +134pts.
The 1200 tips, 58% Win Rate and an all-time ROI of 10.6% suggest this tipster could deliver long-term growth.
Expect a full technical analysis of Around The Orange Ball very soon.
The last three months have been exclusively basketball tips where he has delivered a 35% ROI and over 500 points profit.
Previous to the last three months he covered quite a few sports including tennis, hockey, and handball. He also published almost 200 tips on horse racing and football which unfortunately only produced losses.
Perhaps he has truly found his niche now in basketball.
A 34% Win Rate on average odds of 5.63 has produced an all-time 16% ROI.
HighOddBet is worth a more detailed analysis.
The headline stats read as follows: 15 tips per week at average odds of 49 (yes 48/1!) a Win Rate of 30% and an all-time ROI of 25%.
The combination of high odds and high Win Rate typically indicates each-way bets for a horse racing tipster and so it turns out to be.
His profile makes very interesting reading.
“I am a professional punter specialising in horse racing and particularly handicap races in the UK and Ireland. I have over 10 years experience as a punter and come from a football background where I was mainly punting on goalscorer and player carded markets. The margins were good but I decided to look into horse racing and have never looked back. The returns gained from horse racing are much higher and my full attention these days is focused on handicap races.
I have developed my own method of pricing up horse racing and compare my prices against the industry and I look to find horses that overpriced in my opinion. These horses are inevitably in the each-way market and the most common horses I find are around the 14/1 mark and I have them priced around the 7/1 mark. My long term profit is around 25% mark and I average around 16-17 units a month profit.”
There have been 12 winning months from 15 with an average profit of 550 points. However, the three losing months have been quite heavy losses of -600 points on average.
I’m very much intrigued by AG Tips approach and I’ll definitely be researching this one in the very near future.
