Does anyone know of any good tipping services that they would care to share knowledge about?

I personally think that most tipping sites are fraudulent, roguelike organisations. They inflate their odds often and provide fuguzzy bonuses like "you only pay for the tips if the play wins". Well gee thanks... You lose $300 but, never mind, the $50 tipping charge is waived.. haha

I think that there are plenty of good tipsters on this and other forums, and your best bet is to lurk and keep an eye on peoples' records. Why pay for something that you can get for free?

Simply put, if the tipping services are THAT good, then why bother trying to swindle an extra $50 or so for providing them? Why go to all that effort of maintaining a web-site and promoting it (usually via lame forum spam tactics as seen in The Bog). Why not just simply place more on your own tips?

I wouldnt trust these tipping services, as most of them are bogus. There was an investigation done a while back and here is a summary of what they found out.

Lets say a typical tipping service gets 2000 calls in one day and this service is giving you their "play of the day." 1000 of those callers will get one game and the other will get the opposite play...so no matter what, 50% of the people who call get a winner.

Those 1000 people are likely to use the service again. So now, the service keeps track of those 1000...and for their next game, they do the 50/50 thing again...half get one game, half get the other. So, 500 people from the original 2000 think to themselves..."man this place is pretty good!." So, of those 500, they are likely to call again...and once more you get the same 50/50 set up.

So in the end, 250 people of the original 2000 are sold on the fact that this tipping services is super legit at picking winners. These 250 are likely to stick around for a long time as a result of their first couple wins...so essentially the tipping service has hooked in a bunch of "fish."

My advice would be to stay away...you'll get better, and more honest advice on a forum like this...and we wont charge you for the tips!

I agree completely with Rat and Dog on this one.

I like to see what everyone else is thinking on a certain game compared to what I am. Check out the guys on here on what they are playing and few other sites as well, and then form your opinion on that.

You'll get more usefull and free info in many other places than with a a tipping service.

Good luck with all your plays!



All bets are one unit ($50) unless otherwise noted.

Good read. I was actually going to pose a question like this as well. Saturday mornings, the sports radio here in Houston has a show and all they do is talk about games and everyone gets in their obligatory "I've been 98% on my picks" and "If my guaranteed pick doesn't win, you get the rest of the season for free". I wondered if anyone used it. And does anyone know how it works? Do they charge your credit card? How does the "one free pick" thing work? Do they make you sign up first? I was always a little bit suspect about it, so I've never called..

We keep our prices reasonable so everyone can join in this quest to beat the book.

I used to visit vegassnitch.com and read his picks. Everytime he'd win it would say like chalk up another one for the snitch and everytime he'd lose it would say mark it a rare loss, and at the end it would pretty much always end up being a couple more losses than wins.

I agree with Wayne about the "own tips" to make money piece. Thats sorta why I hate stock brokers also. If they were also THAT good they would invest all their own money!

Look at yas all pickin on tippin sites lol, i'm going to start my own tipping site one day,

As for the old argument why dont they just put more money on the tips themselves - well maybe the've made heaps from there tips, and another answer is the price will go lower when they start becoming huge anyway so asking for some money isn't such a bad move.

Maybe some people just want to be famous, half of these sky channel presenters came from such dogy tipping sites but they were actually or must have been good at it, you just gotta be good.

You start your tipping site when you feel you've made enough for yourself to turn to start kickin back and makin a site and becoming famous and known, and charge if you want to to cover the drop in price because your famous now and people putting heaps of money on it.

Then even maybe get on tv Thumbs up

I do agree though alot of the sites aren't very good, but don't totally give up on a new horse tipping site Thumbs up

othing is free.

even if you get the !!free tip!! and dont ever use them again they will sell your details on to spammers to make money out of you .. and then so will the spammers .. etc etc.

thieving scum imo .. you dont sell the golden egg.

and with todays exchange markets you can get on as large as you like .. so the restricted accounts blag is busted .. they sell tips because ITS the only way they can make a living out of racing.
