Why BSP tipsters are rarely profitable

It’s every punters dream…

… a tipster service that’s profitable to Betfair Starting Price.

You wouldn’t have to worry about getting your bets accepted by the bookies. And you wouldn’t have to worry about having to place your bets quickly before the odds get cut.

You could just place your bets at any point before the race started at BSP, sit back, relax, and watch the profits roll in.

It sounds so easy.

The stuff of dreams…

And unfortunately, that’s all it’s ever likely to be.

A dream.

How so? you may ask.

Well, I’ve seen a number of decent BSP tipster come and go over the years, and they all end up suffering the same fate.

Initially, their selections are profitable to BSP. People see that the tipster is having fantastic results and rush to subscribe to the service.

As more and more people start backing this tipsters selection to BSP, the starting price of these selections are driven down by the increased volume of money being bet on them, and before long, the selections are no longer profitable to BSP.

At this point, people will start to ditch the service en masse and one of two things will happen.

One, discouraged by the poor results and the lack of subscribers, the tipster will close his doors and shut the service.

Or two, the tipster will stick around, and their selections will become profitable again due to the reduced volume of bets of his selection. The results will pick up. The subscribers will return. And the whole cycle will repeat itself all over again.

Long story short. You’re probably best off avoiding BSP tipsters… or following them and backing their selections immediately at the best BOG odds available when their tips are advised.

And if you’re adamant that you want to bet at BSP, then your best bet would be to spend some time developing your own selection processes and betting on your own selections.

Software like Proform Racing is a great option if you want to go down that route.

That’s my thoughts on the matter. If you disagree with me, or have a different point of view on the matter, I’d love to hear from you. Feel free to send me an email letting me know.

Until next time,
