Have you ever sat down to watch the racing,already knowing what bets you are going to place.
But then you start listening to the commentators before the race starts.
Then one of them makes a remark about a horse that catches your attention. You think that the commentators remark has some merit so you go ahead and place a bet as a result of it.
If you’ve ever done this, the likely outcome is that your bet lost. And if you consistently placed bets based on remarks made by racing commentators, those losses would soon rack up.
This is because the vast majority of racing commentators do not make for profitable bettors or tipsters.
That’s not their job. Their job is to fill in the gaps between the races with some interesting chatter.
But that’s all it is. Interesting chatter.
They may know a fair amount about horse racing, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are good judges of probability or value. That is another skill set entirely.
So the next time you sit down to watch the racing, don’t go placing bets based on something you heard one of the commentators say.
Instead stick to your guns and only place bets that your proven selections methods have identified.
And if you don’t have any proven and profitable selection methods, why not take a look at some of the tipsters that I use myself who do know a value bet when they see one.
And don’t just take my word for it. You can take a look at their results for yourself here:
Until next time,
