Djokovic vs Alcaraz Prediction

The tennis world is eagerly anticipating the showdown between Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz in the 2024 Wimbledon final, a repeat of last year’s final between two of the sport’s greats.

This matchup promises to be a clash of styles, generations, and sheer talent.

As we delve into this prediction, we’ll consider:

  • Current form
  • Head-to-head records
  • Odds in previous matches
  • Playing styles
  • Key factors to look out for

So let’s dive in and see who is favoured to win this epic match-up! 

Current Form and Season Performance

Let’s take a look at both players’ form so far this season to see how they have been playing and their prospects for getting the better of their opponent based on their season performance to date.


Novak Djokovic

  • Tournament Wins: Nil
  • Best Performances: Semi-finals – Australian Open, Monte-Carlo Masters; Quarter-finals – Roland Garros

The Serbian maestro has had a tough season so far, failing to register a tournament win to date in 2024.

He was well beaten by Jannik Sinner in the semi-final at the Australian Open and since then Djokovic’s season has been blighted by poor form and injury, having to pull out of the French Open at the quarter-final stage with a knee problem.

It was subsequently revealed that Djokovic needed surgery on that knee, which at first looked like it would prevent him from competing at Wimbledon at all. 

Whilst age may finally be catching up with the Serbian superstar, he bounced back very quickly following surgery, to the surprise of many. 

He was not even sure if he would be able to compete at Wimbledon, but having decided just before the event started he would indeed play, Djokovic has been in impressive form throughout the tournament, dropping just two sets on his way to the final. 

The 37-year old has undoubtedly been helped by getting a bye through the quarter-final, as his opponent Alex De Minaur had to pull out through injury. 

That leaves the Serb fresher than he would have been had he undergone a potentially tough quarter-final and with a straight-sets win in his semi-final, Djokovic should be ready to go for the final. 

He stands alone in the men’s game with 24 grand slams, but would like nothing more than to add a 25th, which would be his eighth Wimbledon title and take him one ahead of Roger Federer.

Whilst the crowd has not been on his side during the tournament and is unlikely to be for the final either against the popular Alcaraz, the Serb is likely to try and feed off any negative energy and use it to fuel him instead.

Certainly this has been his worst season for many years and coming into Wimbledon few gave him a chance, but Djokovic’s form during the event has undoubtedly been good enough to win it.

The only question mark would be that he is yet face a true test in the tournament, but the Serb is easily capable of stepping his game up another gear when faced with top class opposition. 


Carlos Alcaraz

  • Tournament Wins: 2
  • Best Performances: Winner – Indian Wells, Roland Garros. Semi-final: Buenos Aires. Quarter-finals: Australian Open, Madrid Masters

The young Spaniard has had a strong season in 2024, winning his third grand slam title at the French Open in June as well as a second title at Indian Wells in March.

Outside of those wins it has been somewhat of an up and down season for Alcaraz however, with his best performances outside of those two wins being one semi-final and two quarter final appearances.

He has lost to lesser opponents at Queens (2nd round), Rio (1st round) and has not quite maintained the consistency he would be hoping for at this level. 

So he has shown vulnerability and there is a window for Djokovic to exploit if the Spaniard is not quite on his game. 

However, Alcaraz has been on blistering form during much of Wimbledon and has looked unplayable at times. 

The Spaniard has had a tougher route to the final than Djokovic, having to defeat the likes of Tiafoe, Paul and Medvedev to reach this stage.

Having been more thoroughly tested than his opponent during Wimbledon should stand him in good stead for the final.  

On his form both this year and through the tournament, Alacaraz would have to be rated as favourite.


Head-to-Head Record

The head-to-head record between Djokovic and Alcaraz is as follows:

Tournament  Surface Winning Player Losing Player Score
ATP Finals – 18.11.23 Hard Djokovic Alcaraz 6-3, 6-2
Cincinnati – 20.08.23 Hard Djokovic Alcaraz 5-7, 7-6, 7-6
Wimbledon – 16.07.23 Grass Alcaraz Djokovic 1-6, 7-6, 6-1, 3-6, 6-4
French Open – 09.06.23 Clay Djokovic Alcaraz 6-3, 5-7, 6-1, 6-1
Madrid Open – 07.05.22 Clay Alcaraz Djokovic 6-7, 7-5, 7-6

Djokovic narrowly leads the head-to-head 3-2, winning their two hard court encounters to date.

The head-to-head record between Djokovic and Alcaraz is still in its infancy however, reflecting Alcaraz’s young age.

The most famous of their clashes so far is undoubtedly the extraordinary five-set classic at last year’s Wimbledon, which Alcaraz won in thrilling fashion.  

Their encounters so far have provided a glimpse into how this rivalry might evolve.

Djokovic’s experience and tactical nous have given him the edge, but Alcaraz’s fearlessness and rapid improvement suggest that every match between these two will be fiercely contested and ultimately it may be the Spaniard who gains the upper hand as the Serb’s skills wane with age.

Only one of their matches so far has been won in straight sets, confirming how closely matched they have been.


Odds in Previous Encounters

Djokovic has been the favourite for all of their previous encounters, with odds for their matches having been as follows:

Tournament Djokovic Odds Alcaraz Odds
ATP Finals 1.67 2.30
Cincinnati 1.63 2.37
Wimbledon 1.55 2.70
French Open 1.52 2.75
Madrid Open 1.8 2.20

For the first time however, Alcaraz starts as favourite in a matchup against Djokovic, as he starts at odds of 1.67 for the final whilst Djokovic is rated as a 2.38 chance.


Playing Styles and Strategies

Djokovic: Renowned for his incredible defensive skills and ability to turn defense into offense, Djokovic’s game is built around consistency, precision, and an almost impenetrable baseline game.

His return of serve is arguably the best in the history of the sport, allowing him to neutralize opponents’ biggest weapons.

Djokovic’s tactical intelligence enables him to adapt his game to exploit his opponent’s weaknesses, making him a nightmare to play against.

Alcaraz: In contrast, Alcaraz’s style is more aggressive and flamboyant.

His game is characterized by powerful groundstrokes, explosive movement, and a fearless approach to taking on his opponents. Alcaraz is not afraid to go for big shots, aiming to dictate play and finish points quickly.

His forehand, in particular, is a devastating weapon that can change the course of a match in an instant. Alcaraz also possesses a strong net game, often using drop shots and volleys to keep opponents guessing.

It is this clash of styles that has made contests between these two so fascinating. Neither player has been able to achieve dominance over the other so far, suggesting their contrasting styles are a good match for each other. 


Key Factors and Intangibles

Experience vs. Youth: Djokovic’s wealth of experience in high-stakes matches is unmatched.

He has been in virtually every possible scenario on a tennis court and knows how to handle pressure.

Alcaraz, while less experienced, brings the exuberance of youth and a fearlessness that can be dangerous for even the most seasoned opponents.

The outcome may hinge on whether Djokovic’s experience can outlast Alcaraz’s youthful aggression.

Physical and Mental Fortitude: Both players are known for their physical fitness and mental toughness.

Djokovic’s ability to grind out long matches and his unparalleled resilience are well-documented.

Alcaraz, despite his youth, has shown remarkable stamina and a never-say-die attitude. This aspect of the match could be pivotal, especially if it goes the distance.

Surface and Conditions: The playing surface and conditions can also play a crucial role.

Djokovic is highly adaptable, excelling on all surfaces, though he has a slight preference for hard courts.

Alcaraz, hailing from Spain, has grown up on clay but has shown proficiency on other surfaces as well.

Having won Wimbledon last year as well as Queens’ and now reaching another Wimbledon final, there is no doubt Alcaraz is well adapted to grass.

Equally, Djokovic obviously has an incredible record at Wimbledon with seven titles, so both are clearly very happy on the grass of centre court and we do not see any real advantage to either player in terms of the surface.



Predicting the outcome of a Djokovic vs. Alcaraz match is no easy task given their contrasting styles and the variables at play.

However, looking at their form this year we can clearly see that Alcaraz has the upper hand in this department. He has notched two big tournament wins and reached the semi-finals of another event. 

Djokovic’s year by contrast has been blighted by injury and a loss of form. 

The head-to-head record stands narrowly in Djokovic’s favour, at 3-2, but most of those matches were played when Djokovic was the dominant player in men’s tennis.

That is not the case now however with Alcaraz on the rise as the Serb has struggled of late. 

Only one of their matches has been won in straight sets so we can expect a close matchup again. 

Based on his form this year and through the tournament we would rate Alcaraz as a slight favourite, but the final could easily go either way. 

Taking all this into account, we see a repeat of last year’s final:

Our prediction is for an Alcaraz win, in five sets. 

You can get odds of 5.75 for Alcaraz to win in five sets with boomaker 10Bet. 



Final Thoughts

While Alcaraz’s form make him the favourite, Djokovic’s rapid improvement over the last two weeks ensures that he is a real threat.

This match is likely to be a thrilling contest of skill, strategy, and willpower.

Tennis fans should prepare for a potential classic, as the old guard faces the new wave in what promises to be an unforgettable encounter.

In conclusion, on form this year we have to favour Alcaraz, but it is likely to be a very close encounter and could go either way. 

Whatever the result, the tennis world is set for a spectacle that highlights the sport’s enduring appeal and the exciting future that players like Alcaraz represent.

Best Bets for the Open Championship

As the golfing world eagerly anticipates the 2024 Open Championship at Royal Troon, golf fans are buzzing with predictions and speculation.

Known for its challenging links and unpredictable weather, Royal Troon is a venue where only the most versatile and resilient golfers thrive.

This year’s championship promises to be an exciting showcase of skill and strategy, with a field brimming with talent and ambition.

In this article, we delve into the top contenders and dark horses, offering our best bets for who might lift the Claret Jug and etch their name into golfing history.


Taking a Look at the Course – Royal Troon

A key part to determining who will capture the Claret Jug is figuring out who will be suited by the course and conditions players will face. 

Links golf presents a unique test and is unlike anything the players regularly face week-in, week-out on the tour.

Royal Troon Golf Club, a historic venue on Scotland’s rugged Ayrshire coast, is renowned for its challenging layout and demanding conditions.

The course is known for its narrow fairways, deep bunkers, and the infamous “Postage Stamp” eighth hole, the shortest yet one of the most treacherous par-threes in major championship golf.

Troon has been lengthened by 195 yards since it was last used for an Open in 2016 and now measures 7,385 yards from the back tees. That makes it the second-longest course on the Open rota, behind only Carnoustie. 

The card of the course for this year’s championship looks like this: 


Hole Par Yardage
1 4 366
2 4 389
3 4 376
4 5 599
5 3 220
6 5 623
7 4 403
8 3 123
9 4 440
OUT 36 3539
10 4 450
11 4 498
12 4 451
13 4 473
14 3 200
15 4 502
16 5 572
17 3 242
18 4 458
IN 35 3846
TOTAL 71 7385

The extended layout includes the longest hole in Open history, the par 5 sixth hole stretching out to 623 yards off the tips. 

The course should not be overly long for today’s players however, who are used to tests well over 7,500 yards in length. 

What will be of a greater worry to the players will is the wind, which is always a significant factor at Troon, with gusts off the Firth of Clyde capable of turning an easy hole into a nightmare.

Players will need precision, adaptability, and a robust short game to navigate the course successfully.

The ever-changing weather can make each round a unique test, ensuring that only the most skilled and strategic golfers will excel.

With heavy rain hitting Britain in Spring and early Summer the rough is expected to be deep at Troon this year.

That means accuracy – and a versatile short-game to deal with the variety of shots players will face when they miss the greens – are the key assets to look for in a potential champion. In addition to an ability to handle the wind of course!


Past Champions and Winning Scores at Troon

To get a clearer idea of who might triumph this time, it is worth looking at past champions at Troon to see what type of player has prospered at the course before. 

We can also get an idea of how difficult Troon tends to play by looking at the winning scores of past champions. 

The past winners and their scores are as follows:

  • 2016: Henrik Stenson – 20-under-par, 264
  • 2004: Todd Hamilton – 10-under-par, 274
  • 1997: Justin Leonard – 12-under-par, 272
  • 1982: Tom Watson – 4-under-par, 280
  • 1973: Tom Weiskopf – 12-under-par, 276
  • 1962: Arnold Palmer – 276 (aggregate score)

The most recent champion, Henrik Stenson, won in 2016 with a record-breaking score of 20-under-par 264, a performance that included a final-round duel with Phil Mickelson.

Those two were an astonishing 11 shots clear of the rest of the field, an extraordinary breakaway performance.

So it may not be that the course was “easy” that year as such – rather that Stenson and Mickelson performed at an exceptionally high level. 

Scores have generally been well under par though, so the course could be regarded as a good test, but score-able. 

Looking at the profile of past champions, we see that players like Leonard and Hamilton were not long hitters and though Stenson hit the ball a good distance, was not the longest of his generation either (often hitting a 3-wood off the tee for accuracy). 

We are not necessarily looking for a big hitter then, rather an accurate iron-player which certainly the likes of Tom Watson, Leonard and Stenson were known for.


Open Championship Best Bets

Okay now we’ve taken a look at the course and the profile of past champions, let’s get on to looking at the best bets for this year’s Open Championship.

The good news for punters is that bookies normally offer very generous terms for the Open, with 8, 10 or even 12 places being offered for each-way bets by certain bookies in the week of the event (i.e. Mon-Weds of Open week).

Please note all odds quoted are correct at the time of writing and are subject to change.


Xander Schauffele

  • Open record: T20-T2-T41-T26-T15-T17
  • Odds: 16/1
  • Major wins: USPGA 2024

Our first pick is American Xander Schauffele at 16/1. 

Having recently secured his first major victory at the USPGA Championship in May, Xander Schauffele should enter the Open at Troon with high confidence.

With the pressure of winning his first major now behind him – and marking his first title in two years – the unpretentious Californian will be liberated to chase more major titles.

Schauffele’s Open record is notable, with six cuts made out of six attempts, and a second-place finish behind Francesco Molinari at Carnoustie in 2018, demonstrating his ability to handle the toughest links conditions.

His exceptional ball-striking makes him a strong contender on any golf course, and his skill in flighting the ball and executing a variety of shots prepares him well for the strong winds often encountered on links courses.

In addition to his impressive Open record, the Californian also won the Scottish Open at the Renaissance Club in 2022.

With seven additional PGA Tour victories, an Olympic Gold medal, and wins in both the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup, Schauffele has already amassed a highly impressive resume at just 30 years old.

His performance in 2024 has been stellar as well, with runner-up finishes at the Wells Fargo Championship and Players Championship, a third-place at the American Express, and a fourth-place at the Genesis, complementing his USPGA win.

In total, the American has secured ten top-ten finishes in fourteen PGA Tour starts this season, displaying remarkable consistency.

At a general price of 16/1 at the time of writing, many will view Schauffele as a valuable each-way bet for this year’s Open.


Viktor Hovland

  • Open record: T12-T4-T13
  • Odds: 18/1
  • Major wins: none

Following a poor start to the year after ditching his coach Joe Mayo, Norwegian superstar Viktor Hovland has bounced back to form after reuniting with Mayo, with a third place finish at the PGA Championship followed by 15th at the Memorial. 

His Open record is promising, with three top-15 finishes in three starts, including a fourth-place finish at St Andrews two years ago.

Hovland has been on the verge of a major breakthrough for some time now, with a second and third place at the USPGA, and a seventh place at the Masters, complementing his strong Open performances.

Having secured significant titles in his career, including the Memorial Tournament, BMW Championship, Tour Championship, and Dubai Desert Classic, the 26-year-old has proven he can close the deal when in contention at big events.

Therefore it wouldn’t be surprising to see him add a Claret Jug to his growing list of accomplishments.

If he can recapture the red-hot form that saw him win the FedEx Cup and play a starring role for Europe at the Ryder Cup last year, Hovland would be a tough man to beat. The 18/1 available for him looks like value. 


Collin Morikawa

  • Open record: 1-MC-MC
  • Odds: 25/1
  • Major wins: 2020 PGA, 2021 Open

Collin Morikawa has already demonstrated his ability to perform under the intense pressure of major championships.

His victory at the 2020 PGA Championship, where he displayed remarkable composure and skill, showcased his talent on the biggest stage.

Additionally, his win at the 2021 Open Championship at Royal St. George’s further solidified his reputation as a major tournament player.

Morikawa’s ability to win major titles early in his career speaks volumes about his mental fortitude and skillset.

One of the critical challenges of the Open Championship is the unique demands of links golf, which requires players to adapt to varying wind conditions, firm turf, and creative shot-making.

Morikawa’s victory at Royal St. George’s demonstrated his adeptness at handling these conditions.

His superb iron-play and clutch putting led him to victory back at the Kent links and he is getting back to the kind of form that led him to that triumph. 

So far in 2024 he has notched a fifth place in the Sentry, third at the Masters, ninth at the RBC Heritage, fourth at the PGA Championship, fourth at the Charles Schwab Challenge and second at the Memorial. 

His recent performances indicate that he is peaking for the big events, which is crucial for success in major tournaments.

If his putter had behaved on Sundays, Morikawa would surely be a multiple winner this season. He just needs it to do so at Troon and he will surely have a great chance on his current form at odds of 25/1. 



Tommy Fleetwood

  • Open record: MC-MC-MC-T27-T12-2-T33-T4-T10
  • Odds: 25/1
  • Major wins: none

There would be few more popular winners of the Claret Jug than Tommy Fleetwood. 

The 33 year-old’s performances in past Open Championships highlights his ability to excel in this unique tournament.

With multiple top-10 finishes, including a runner-up position at Royal Portrush in 2019, a twelth in 2018, fourth place in 2022 and tenth last year, the Englishman has demonstrated his capability to compete at the highest level in links golf.

Growing up and playing extensively in the UK has given Fleetwood a deep understanding of links golf.

His experience with the unpredictable weather, firm fairways, and creative shot-making required on links courses gives him an edge over many of his competitors. Fleetwood’s ability to manage his game in windy conditions and on firm, fast greens makes him particularly well-suited for the Open Championship.

Fleetwood can also expect to enjoy strong support from the home crowd, which can provide a significant boost. 

In terms of his 2024 form, has produced strong performances including a win at the Dubai Invitational at the start of the year, seventh at the Valero Texas Open, third at the Masters and thirteenth at the Wells Fargo. 

With a tendency to raise his game for the majors – evidenced by three top-5s at the US Open in addition to his strong Open record – Fleetwood looks a tempting price to finally grab a piece of major glory at 25/1.



Min Woo Lee

  • Open record: MC-T21-T41
  • Odds: 50/1
  • Major wins: none

One of the most exciting young prospects in men’s golf is Australian Min Woo Lee. 

Lee has shown a knack for performing well on links courses, which is vital for the Open Championship.

His strong showing at the Scottish Open, where he claimed victory in 2021, demonstrates his capability to handle the unique demands of links golf.

Lee has only played in three Opens, with a missed cut on his first visit followed by a 21st and 41st placed finish. 

However, with a fifth at the US Open and a 14th at the Masters in his young career he is already getting to grips with the major championships.  

With a second place finish at the Cognizant Classic earlier in 2024 and a run of four top-30 finishes lately, his form has been solid rather than spectacular this year. 

It is his prodigious talent and a previous win in Scotland however that mark Min Woo Lee as a pick at odds of 50/1. 



Robert MacIntyre

  • Open record: T6-T8-T34-T71
  • Odds: 66/1
  • Major wins: none

Scotland has not had a winner of the Open Championship this century but one man who could put that right is Oban’s Robert MacIntyre. 

Following a hugely emotional win at the Canadian Open with his dad on the bag, “Bob Mac” as he is known will be full of confidence heading to the year’s final major. 

He narrowly missed out on winning the Scottish Open last year after Rory McIlroy produced two miracle shots on 17 & 18 to deny him. MacIntyre showed his mettle with an excellent birdie of his own on the treacherous 18th hole however. 

The Scot is very familiar with links golf having grown up playing it, which is borne out by two top-ten finishes at the Open from five visits.

In addition to his win at the Canadian Open, MacIntyre has also notched an 8th place at the PGA, 8th at the Zurich Classic alongside Thomas Detry, 6th at the Mexico Open and 13th at the Myrtle Beach Classic so far this season. 

Having performed commendably at the Ryder Cup the Scot has shown he can deal with the most intense of pressure, although landing the Open in his own country would be another thing altogether!

However, at odds of 66/1 he represents strong value to perform well on a course and in conditions that should suit him very well.

Tennis enjoys immense popularity globally, attracting millions of fans who eagerly watch major tournaments each week. What adds to the excitement for many is the potential to win substantial sums by betting on matches.

To succeed in tennis betting, one needs the right tips and advice. This is where tipsters come in; they are experts who analyze games and forecast outcomes.

However, with numerous tipsters available, finding reliable ones can be challenging.

This article aims to assist you. We have conducted extensive research and testing to identify the top tennis tipsters, evaluating them through live trials on our site.

Although there may not be as many tennis tipsters as there are for football or horse racing, quality is more important than quantity in this domain.

With a wealth of data accessible online and on TV, tipsters have ample information to make accurate predictions.

In our article, we will introduce you to the five best tennis tipsters based on our thorough research and testing.

Whether you are an experienced bettor or new to tennis betting, join us as we delve into the realm of top tennis tipsters!


Who are tipsters and why are they important?

Tipsters are specialists in analyzing and forecasting the results of sports events.

In tennis betting, tipsters concentrate on offering insights and predictions for upcoming matches and tournaments.

They employ a range of methods and strategies, such as evaluating player performance, match history, head-to-head records, and factors like the playing surface, to make precise predictions.

The significance of tipsters lies in their capacity to consistently generate profits over time, which is the primary indicator of their success.

Moreover, they save bettors time and effort by performing in-depth form studies and match analyses, allowing you to benefit from their expertise without doing the work yourself.

What to Look For When Evaluating a Tennis Tipster

When evaluating a tennis tipster’s performance, it’s essential to consider several key factors:

  • Strike Rate: This indicates the percentage of successful bets a tipster has made, providing insight into the accuracy of their predictions. For tennis, a typical strike rate for a tipster ranges between 40-60%. Understanding the strike rate helps you anticipate the number of winning bets and determine how much money to allocate for betting.
  • Return on Investment (ROI): This metric measures a tipster’s profitability by showing the profit made for every 100 units invested. For instance, an ROI of 30% means earning £30 profit for every £100 bet. In tennis, an ROI over 5% is considered good, and anything over 10% long-term is excellent.
  • Bank Growth: This tracks the growth of a betting bank over time. For example, if a £1,000 bank grows by 50% in a year, it becomes £1,500. Bank growth illustrates how well a tipster performs over a given period and suggests how your betting funds could increase.
  • Longevity: This factor assesses how successful a tipster has been over an extended period. Consistent profitability over time demonstrates expertise and an edge over bookmakers. While some tipsters may achieve quick success, only a few maintain profitability year after year.

Considering these factors helps you gain a comprehensive understanding of a tennis tipster’s track record, enabling you to decide if they are reliable and have the potential for long-term success in tennis betting.

At Betfair SP, there has been no change since our last update and they are still 2 points up for our trial overall at BSP. 

There is being a low volume betting service and then there’s…only one bet in two months, which is what we’ve had with this service.

My old teacher used to say “patience is a virtue” and that’s certainly the case with First Class Racing!

However, their spin-off service Second Class Racing – which is a laying service – has a lot more action with multiple bets per day normally and is going great guns. You can check out our review of it here.

At Betfair SP, they have also lost 3 points since our last update and are 1 point down for our trial overall at BSP. 

To be honest we think this service is just too low volume to be viable for most people to follow. Only 3 bets over the last month is not really enough to get things moving forward. 

That is how the tipster operates but without upping the bet volume it’s difficult to see how they can produce enough profit to make it worthwhile to follow.

At Betfair SP, they are also 2 points up so far. 

We were expecting this to be a low volume service but there have only been three bets so far, which is even less than expected.

However, partly this is down to the time of year when there just aren’t very many of the type of high class races the tipster Mel likes to go for. So we would expect bet volume to pick up a little from here.

The main thing though is that a profit has been made so far which is what matters most.





First Class Racing – New Review

28th November 2022

We are starting a new trial today of a horse racing tipster called First Class Racing.

If you have been following our blog recently you may have seen the live Q&A they hosted recently with the resident tipster at First Class Racing, Mel Gee.

It was a very interesting discussion where Mel went through his unique betting style and why it has proved so successful for him in recent years.

Essentially the approach revolves around backing favourites in top class racing – indeed Mel only backs in Class 1 races these days. 

It’s a case of finding situations where a quality horse has everything in its favour, and doesn’t have to worry about carrying extra weight as the races bet on are non-handicaps. 

The strategy appears to have worked very well, with Mel having doubled his members’ betting banks over the last 14 months. 

It is a very low volume service, with usually just a few bets per month. Mel likes to be very selective and only put up selections when, as we say, a horse has absolutely everything in its favour. 

Although some people like more regular betting action, the advantage of a low volume approach like this is it’s very easy to follow with minimal work involved. 

It also means we will need to run quite a long trial with this one to get a big enough sample size of bets. 

So we will kick things off today and will report back on how things are going here as usual. 

In the meantime you can check out First Class Racing for yourself here.

Grass courts are generally faster than other surfaces, favoring players with certain playing styles.

Some players excel on grass and struggle on other surfaces, making them worth considering for your Wimbledon bets.

Strategies for Betting on Wimbledon Matches

Strawberries and cream

Strawberries and cream is always a popular choice at Wimbledon.

We’ve had a look at some of the best tips available for Wimbledon, but there is another approach. Perhaps you want to work on your own strategies and selections.  

Let’s explore some strategies that can help you make informed betting decisions:

1. Bet on underdogs selectively

In tennis, upsets are not uncommon, especially in Grand Slam tournaments like Wimbledon.

Betting on underdogs can be a profitable strategy if you can identify players who have the potential to cause an upset.

Look for players who have a history of performing well on grass or players who have recently shown significant improvement in their game.

2. Consider the draw

The draw plays a crucial role in a player’s journey through the tournament. Analyze the draw and consider the potential matchups players will face in each round.

Some players may have easier paths to the later stages of the tournament, while others may face tougher opponents early on.

Take the draw into account when assessing a player’s chances of success at Wimbledon.

3. Monitor weather conditions

Weather conditions can have a significant impact on grass-court matches.

Rain can slow down the court and favor certain players, while hot and dry conditions can make the court faster and benefit others.

Stay updated on the weather forecast and consider how it may impact player performance and match outcomes.

4. Bet in-play

In-play betting, also known as live betting, allows you to place bets on matches while they are in progress.

This strategy can be particularly useful in tennis, as the momentum of a match can quickly shift.

Watching the match and assessing the players’ performance can provide valuable insights that can help you make more accurate predictions.


Exploring Different Types of Wimbledon Bets

When it comes to Wimbledon betting, there are various types of bets you can place. Here are some popular options to consider:

1. Match winner

The most straightforward bet, where you predict which player will win the match. This bet offers a good starting point for beginners and allows you to bet on individual matches throughout the tournament.

2. Set betting

Set betting involves predicting the correct score of sets in a match.

This type of bet offers higher odds and can be a good option if you have a strong understanding of the players’ abilities and playing styles.

3. Over/under

Over/under betting involves predicting whether the total number of games or sets in a match will be over or under a specified number.

This type of bet can be a good option if you expect a match to be particularly competitive or one-sided.

4. Prop bets

Prop bets, also known as proposition bets, involve betting on specific events within a match.

For example, you can bet on the number of aces served, the number of double faults, or whether a tiebreaker will occur in a set.

Prop bets can add an extra layer of excitement to your Wimbledon betting experience.


Managing Your Bankroll and Setting Betting Limits

Effective bankroll management is crucial for long-term success in sports betting, including Wimbledon betting. Here are some tips to help you manage your bankroll and set betting limits:

1. Set a budget

Before you start betting on Wimbledon, set a budget for how much you are willing to spend on your bets.

This budget should be an amount that you can afford to lose without affecting your financial stability. Stick to this budget and avoid chasing losses by increasing your bets.

2. Divide your bankroll

Divide your bankroll into units, with each unit representing a percentage of your total budget.

For example, you could divide your bankroll into 100 units, with each unit representing 1% of your total budget.

This approach helps you manage your bets more effectively and reduces the risk of depleting your bankroll quickly.

3. Bet within your limits

Avoid placing bets that exceed a certain percentage of your bankroll.

A common rule of thumb is to bet no more than 2-5% of your bankroll on a single bet.

This approach helps protect your bankroll from significant losses and allows you to withstand losing streaks without depleting your funds.

4. Practice discipline and patience

Successful betting requires discipline and patience.

Avoid impulsive bets and stick to your pre-determined betting strategy.

Don’t be tempted to place bets on every match or event – focus on identifying value bets and opportunities where you have a genuine edge.


Conclusion – Wimbledon Betting Tips

As Wimbledon approaches, you’re now armed with expert insights and strategies to make informed and successful bets.

This guide has equipped you with valuable knowledge on analyzing players’ form, assessing court preferences, and understanding the nuances of grass-court performance.

Asian Handicap 1.5 Meaning

Have you ever wondered what the Asian Handicap 1.5 bet is or how it works? Well, dive into our guide where we break down this unique betting option.

Whether you’re a seasoned bettor or just starting out, we’ll explain everything you need to know about Asian Handicap 1.5.

This type of bet removes the possibility of a draw and evens the playing field for both teams.

But what exactly does that mean for your bets? How does it impact the odds? And most importantly, how can you use it to your advantage?

We’ll answer all these questions and more, providing clear examples to help you grasp the concept.

By the end of this guide, you’ll have a solid understanding of Asian Handicap 1.5 and how to use it effectively in football betting.

Ready to level up your betting game? Let’s get started!


How Does the Asian Handicap Work? 

The Asian Handicap is a type of betting originating from Asia, now popular worldwide. Its goal is to prevent draws by giving one team a virtual advantage or disadvantage. 

You can read our full guide on how Asian handicap betting works here.

In “Asian Handicap 1.5” betting, a team marked as “+1.5” starts with a 1.5 goal lead, while the “-1.5” team begins with a 1.5 goal deficit.

The Asian handicap 1.5 bet is one of the more simple Asian handicap bets to understand as essentially you just need a team to win by two or more goals, if they are -1.5 on the Asian handicap, or not lose by two or more goals if they are +1.5 on the handicap. 

Since draws are eliminated in Asian handicap bets, only two outcomes are possible. 


How Can You Have Half a Goal in Football?

Now you may be wondering why the market says +1.5 goals – or how you can have half a goal in football.

Well, in fact the market is not suggesting there could be half a goal – rather it is a mechanism by which the draw result can be eliminated and there can only be two results. 

Either a team wins by two or more goals, or they do not. 

By adding (or subtracting) one and a half goals to a team’s score, this ensures a clear result and means the net result once the handicap has been applied cannot be a draw.

We can see this in action in some examples below. 


Get Free Footy Tips from Pro Tipsters Here



Let’s have a look at some examples. Here is a match from the Premier League between Aston Villa and Liverpool, with the odds from the Betfair Exchange:

In this instance, you can back Aston Villa with a +1.5 goal headstart at odds of 1.47, or back Liverpool with a -1.5 goal deficit at odds of 3.05.

Liverpool are strong favourites for the game, but with a +1.5 goal headstart Aston Villa become favourites in this market. 

Let’s say you decided to back Aston Villa +1.5.

If you placed £10 on them at 1.47, this would be your position: 

As you can see, the scenarios are pretty simple for this bet. 

If Liverpool do NOT win by 2 or more goals, then you win your bet. That means everything including a Villa win, a draw and Liverpool winning by just one goal would result in a winning bet here.

So for a £10 stake at odds of 1.47 you would win £4.70 (minus commission). 

Of course the other option in this example is to back Liverpool at -1.5:

You need Liverpool to win by two goals to win your bet – at odds of 3.05.

Any other result means you lose your bet – so if Villa win, the game is drawn, or Liverpool win by just one goal.  

For a stake of £10, you would win £20.50 (minus commission) if Liverpool do win by two or more goals.


Example 2

You can of course do the whole thing in reverse and use the market that gives Liverpool a 1.5 goal Asian handicap headstart, i.e. Liverpool +1.5:

Here you can see that Liverpool are given the 1.5 goal headstart (+1.5) whilst Aston Villa are given a 1.5 goal deficit (-1.5). 

Liverpool are priced at 1.13 with this +1.5 headstart in the Asian handicap market. 

If you placed £10 on them at odds of 1.13, this would be your position:-












It works the same way as we saw previously – if Aston Villa fail to win by 2 or more goals, you win £1.30 (minus commission). 

If Aston Villa win by two or more goals however, your bet loses (you lose the full £10 stake). 

And finally, you could back Aston Villa with a 1.5 goal deficit (-1.5):


Here you need Aston Villa to win by two or more goals to win your bet – at high odds of 8.41

If they do not win by two or more goals however, you lose your bet.

So they could win 2-1 for example and you would still lose your bet in this instance.  

So that’s it in a nutshell really, the “Asian handicap 1.5” market is about backing a side with a 1.5 goal headstart or deficit. 

In the end, the match finished 3-3, meaning the Aston Villa +1.5 and Liverpool +1.5 bets would have won.  

Both Liverpool -1.5 and Aston Villa -1.5 would have been losing bets.


How to Use the Asian Handicap 1.5 market

In deciding whether to use the Asian handicap 1.5 market for your bets, it is worth delving into stats on the teams playing and their scorelines over the season. 

If a team has a habit of winning by big margins, it could be worth backing them on the -1.5 Asian handicap market, as they have had a habit of overcoming that margin. 

However, if a favourite tends to win a lot of games by narrow one goal margins, it might be better to back the other side with a +1.5 goal headstart. 

Or in the same vein, if when a team loses, they only lose by one goal, it may be worth taking them on the +1.5 Asian handicap market if the odds are favourable. 

The nice thing is that these days there is so much choice in terms of markets to bet on, you can study the stats and find which one is most suitable for the match you want to bet on. 


Common mistakes to avoid in Asian Handicap betting

To make the most of Asian Handicap betting, it’s important to steer clear of some common blunders that bettors often fall into. Here are a few to watch out for:

  1. Neglecting team updates and injuries: Keep an eye on the latest news about teams, including player injuries and lineup changes. Ignoring this info could lead to misguided predictions and bad bets.
  2. Skipping research: Doing your homework is crucial. Don’t overlook team performance, stats, and other relevant details. Without proper analysis, you might end up making bets based on guesswork rather than facts.
  3. Chasing losses: When you’re behind, resist the urge to bet big in hopes of recouping your losses quickly. This can lead to reckless decisions and more losses. Stick to your betting plan and avoid chasing after what you’ve lost.
  4. Letting emotions dictate: Emotions have a way of clouding judgment, especially when it comes to betting. Avoid making decisions based solely on personal feelings or biases toward a particular team. Stay objective and focus on making rational, calculated bets.

By steering clear of these pitfalls, you can refine your betting approach and boost your chances of success in Asian Handicap betting.


Conclusion – the Asian Handicap 1.5 Market

In conclusion, delving into the Asian Handicap 1.5 market opens up a realm of strategic betting opportunities.

Understanding its nuances, such as the elimination of draws and how the market operates, is essential for making informed decisions.

By studying team statistics, tendencies, and considering various betting scenarios, you can leverage this market to your advantage.

Whether it’s backing a team with a proven track record of wide-margin victories or capitalizing on underdog resilience, the Asian Handicap 1.5 offers a dynamic option for strategic betting.

However, to maximize your success, it’s crucial to avoid common pitfalls like neglecting team updates, skipping research, chasing losses, and letting emotions dictate your bets.

By staying disciplined and objective, you can refine your betting strategy and enhance your chances of success in the dynamic world of Asian Handicap betting.

So, armed with knowledge and a clear-headed approach, step into the Asian Handicap 1.5 market and elevate your betting game to new heights.

Texas Hold’em is a poker variant where each player gets two private cards (hole cards) and uses them along with five community cards that are revealed in stages—flop, turn, and river—to make the best possible five-card hand.

The game involves four betting rounds and can be played by 2 to 10 players. Your goal is to win chips by either having the best hand or convincing others to fold their hands.

Starting Hands: Know What to Play

Not all starting hands are worth playing. Generally, big pairs like AA, KK, QQ, JJ, and also hands like AK and AQ have the most strength preflop. Position matters, too. Being in a later position (closer to the button) means you can see how others act before making your decision, allowing more flexibility in the hands you choose to play.

Betting Strategies: Maximizing Your Wins

A key concept is the continuation bet (c-bet), which is a bet made on the flop if you’ve raised preflop, regardless of whether the flop improved your hand. This projects strength and can often win the pot.

Another tactic is bluffing, essentially betting or raising to make your opponents believe your hand is stronger than it is. However, successful bluffing requires understanding your opponents and picking the right moments.

Reading Your Opponents

Paying attention to how others play is crucial. Look for patterns in their betting, their reactions to card reveals, and any physical tells if you’re playing in person. Players who bet aggressively may be bluffing, while those who call often might be playing cautiously with only strong hands.

Adjusting your strategy based on your read of the table can be the difference between winning and losing.

Managing Your Bankroll

Responsible bankroll management is vital. Only play with money you can afford to lose. A common guideline is to have at least 20 to 30 buy-ins for the level at which you’re playing.

This helps cushion against the natural variance in the game and prevents you from going broke due to a bad run of cards.

Adopting a Continuous Learning Mindset

Engaging with Texas Hold’em strategies, watching tutorial videos, reading books, and analyzing your plays can all contribute to improving your game. Learning from your mistakes and successes is key.

Texas Hold’em in Action

To truly grasp Texas Hold’em, observing the game in action helps. Platforms like GGPoker not only allow you to play the game but also offer a range of resources from which to learn. Watching professionals play can give insights into how they think about and approach the game, which is invaluable for your growth as a player.

Mastering the Art of Bluffing

Bluffing is an essential strategy in Texas Hold’em to deceive your opponents into thinking that you have a stronger hand than you actually do. However, it is crucial to know when and how to bluff. Bluffing too often or at the wrong time can lead to significant losses.

It is essential to understand your opponent’s tendencies, previous plays, and betting patterns before attempting to bluff them. Additionally, it is crucial to consider the position of the players and the number of players left in the game when deciding to bluff. With practice and experience, you can master the art of bluffing and make it a potent weapon in your arsenal.

Staying Focused and Managing Emotions

Texas Hold’em is a game of skill, but emotions and distractions can affect your performance. It is vital to stay focused and calm while playing to make the best decisions. Avoid playing when tired or when you are feeling emotional, as it can impact your judgment and lead to wrong decisions. Furthermore, managing your emotions and avoiding tilt is crucial.

Tilt is a state of mind where you become frustrated or angry, often due to a series of bad hands. It can lead to reckless playing and significant losses. To avoid tilt, take breaks, relax, and avoid chasing losses. Staying focused and managing emotions are critical to becoming a successful Texas Hold’em player.

Final Thoughts

Winning at Texas Hold’em is about making informed decisions, understanding your opponents, and constantly adapting. Remember, every session is a learning opportunity. Stay patient, stay disciplined, and keep honing your skills. The journey from aspiring to winning player is challenging but rewarding.

Top 10 Golf Tipsters in the World – Ranked!

Golf betting has seen a surge in popularity over time, attracting more sports enthusiasts eager for the thrill of wagering on their favorite golfers.

Whether you’re a seasoned bettor or new to the game, there are reputable tipsters available who can enhance your chances of winning big.

These experts offer valuable insights and strategies, from understanding the course and players to analyzing odds and making informed bets, to optimize your golf betting experience.

At Honest Betting Reviews, we’ve extensively evaluated dozens of golf tipsters and systems, subjecting them to thorough reviews and live trials to assess their profitability.

While many services have fallen short in our trials, a select few have consistently delivered impressive long-term results.

These standout tipsters represent an elite group capable of consistently outperforming the bookies and generating steady profits.

To avoid risking your money on unreliable tipsters, it’s crucial to follow those with a proven track record of success spanning several years.

Below, we’ve compiled a list of the top 10 tipsters in the world, which is regularly updated to reflect the latest results achieved by golf’s leading experts.

Golf Betting – Big Wins Possible but Patience Required

Generating profits from golf betting requires a long-term commitment, along with patience and a sufficient betting bankroll. Compared to sports like horse racing or football, golf betting entails longer losing streaks and drawdowns.

This is primarily due to the higher average odds involved in golf betting, with tipsters often selecting bets at odds of 20/1, 50/1, or even 100/1. Consequently, the strike rate tends to be lower when betting at these odds.

Nevertheless, the satisfaction of landing a significant winner at odds of 100/1 or better is unparalleled and justifies the wait. Those who remain loyal to a reputable golf betting service (such as those mentioned below) over time can enjoy substantial profits.

So, prepare your clubs and gear up for the greens because armed with these insights, you’re poised to embark on a journey toward becoming a successful golf bettor in no time!


Top 10 Golf Tipsters

Without wasting any more time, we present our compilation of the top ten golf tipsters below. This list is arranged in descending order, with the most impressive tipster placed at the end.

We trust you will find this list useful, and kindly inform us if we have unintentionally overlooked anyone who, in your opinion, deserves a spot on this list.


10. Steve Palmer

Steve Palmer is currently the principal golf correspondent for the Racing Post, offering weekly selections for PGA and DP World Tour events. He previously collaborated with senior golf tipster Jeremy Chapman before assuming the lead role.

Palmer gained recognition through his book, “Born to Punt: Steve Palmer’s Betting Year,” chronicling an ordinary punter’s pursuit of substantial winnings. A key theme involves Palmer’s daring attempts to secure massive wins by placing ambitious doubles on PGA and European tour winners, often at odds reaching thousands to one.

The ultimate goal of this strategy is to achieve a significant victory, yielding at least £30,000, enabling Palmer to transition to full-time professional punting. He vividly dubs this triumph the “face-spitter,” symbolizing a monumental win liberating one from their job, albeit in a slightly undignified manner of being able to spit in his boss’s face. 

Published in 2011, the book lacks documentation of Palmer securing such substantial wins to date. However, akin to lottery winners, all it takes is one stroke of luck.

Regrettably, the Racing Post does not disclose their tipsters’ records, making it challenging to assess Palmer’s long-term success. Available evidence suggests he garnered over 100 points profit in a six-month period in 2012, but further data is scarce.

Considering Palmer’s own remarks and reader feedback, our evaluation indicates he typically breaks even or achieves modest profits. While commendable, this level of success currently does not merit higher ranking among the best golf tipsters.


9. PGA Profit

Next on our list is PGA Profit, a well-established service known for its remarkable consistency in tipping over a span exceeding four years.

PGA Profit relies on the expertise of a mathematics expert who has crafted a sophisticated algorithm. This algorithm utilizes extensive statistics, encompassing metrics like strokes gained tee-to-green and driving accuracy, to compile a list of potential picks.

By scrutinizing course features and player suitability, the algorithm constructs a profile pinpointing players offering value for the specific tournament.

Moreover, by incorporating additional player details, such as their current personal circumstances, PGA Profit devises a robust strategy to effectively navigate the golf markets.

Yet, strategy alone is meaningless unless it delivers results. Fortunately, PGA Profit has consistently achieved just that, as demonstrated by their annual track record since their inception:

  • 2018: +274 points profit
  • 2019: +286 points profit
  • 2020: +208 points profit
  • 2021: +500 points profit
  • 2022: -91 point loss
  • 2023: -234 point loss

The total profit since starting tipping adds up to over 860 points profit a return on investment of just under 22%.

Some of their top winners include:

  • Mackenzie Hughes at the Sandersons Farms at 100/1
  • Max Homa at the Genesis Invitational at 66/1
  • Garrick Higgo at the Gran Canaria Open at 40/1
  • Abraham Ancer at the WGC Fedex at 45/1
  • Max Homa at the Fortinet Championship at 66/1

The last couple of years have been tough which has detracted from the previous results which were excellent. 

For the time being we will keep PGA Profit on this list based on their long-term results, but that might need to be reconsidered if the recent losses continue. 



8. Golfbetsgold

GolfBetsGold stands out as a respected service boasting a proven track record and a dedicated following. Spearheading the service is Martin Colwell, a certified accountant and financial auditor, who employs a data-driven and analytical approach. This blend has consistently proven effective in attaining success in golf betting.

The service provides selections for both pre-tournament and in-play betting across the PGA and European Tours. Throughout our thorough nine-month trial, GolfBetsGold showcased remarkable performance, securing a commendable profit of 93 points.

Notable winners during our trial period include:

  • Billy Horschel at the BMW PGA Championship, odds 28/1 – WON
  • Nacho Elvira at the Cazoo Open, odds 22/1 – WON
  • Garrick Higgo at the Palmetto Championship, odds 16/1 – WON (in-play)
  • Sam Horsfield as first-round leader at the Scandinavian Mixed, odds 28/1 – WON (dead heat)
  • John Catlin at the Austrian Open, odds 45/1 – WON
  • Rory McIlroy at the Wells Fargo, odds 20/1 – WON
  • Jon Rahm at the US Open, odds 10/1 – WON

The long-term results stack up very well too. Here are the yearly results for Golfbetsgold since 2018:

  • 2023: -6 points
  • 2022: -35 points
  • 2021: +143 points
  • 2020: +65 points
  • 2019: +123 points
  • 2018: +60 points
  • TOTAL: +350 points profit

So as you can see, a very nice total of 350 points profit made since starting out, although again the last couple of years have seen a downturn. 

GolfBetsGold offers a user-friendly service with just a handful of selections per week, demanding minimal effort from followers. Each tip is usually accompanied by comprehensive write-ups, offering clear and logical reasoning behind the selections. From our assessment, their rationale appears to be solid.

In summary, GolfBetsGold is a golf tipster that deserves your attention.


7. Bookie Insiders Golf Tips

Next up is Bookie Insiders Golf Tips, a tipster service that has garnered an impressive track record since its inception. What sets this service apart is its utilization of a sophisticated algorithm, which exploits pricing errors in bookmakers’ models, positioning itself as a top-tier option in the industry.

Initially focusing on the top 20 market, Bookie Insiders Golf achieved remarkable success in that domain, accumulating over 350 points profit since tipping began in 2019. These results translate to a strong return on investment (ROI) exceeding 23%.

Recently, the service has broadened its scope to include outright market tips, providing members with a wider range of choices.

By offering selections at both bookmakers’ odds and Betfair exchange odds, Bookie Insiders Golf caters to individuals who may have encountered restrictions in the top 20 market. The Betfair exchange model has yielded impressive results, with over 800 points profit in 2020 and sustained profits in 2021.

Some notable winners include:

  • Andrew Landry at the American Express – WON @ 460
  • Hudson Swafford at the Corales Puntacanes – WON @ 260
  • Stewart Cink at the Safeway Open – WON @ 230
  • Nick Taylor at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am – WON @ 180

Expanding further, the service now extends selections to Korn Ferry Tour and Ladies tour events, as well as the top 10 markets, providing members with a comprehensive range of options. Whether subscribers follow all tips or concentrate on specific tours and markets, there’s ample opportunity with this service.

Throughout our review of Bookie Insiders Golf, they consistently delivered commendable performances, yielding over 150 points profit on top 20 bets and over 50 points profit on Betfair outright bets.

Operating as a standalone service under the name +EV Golf Tips, Bookie Insiders Golf Tips is a premium service that has indisputably earned its place among the best golf tipsters available. For those interested in signing up, please reach out to us at, as there is currently no website available for the service.


6. Edwards Tips

Craig Edwards, once a professional snooker player, has transitioned successfully into the realm of tipster services with his Edwards Tips platform. While it covers both golf and snooker, the bulk of its profits stem from golf selections.

Since its inception in 2018, Craig has amassed an impressive total of 716 points profit on his golf tips. This includes 275 points from his place betting tips (e.g., Top 20, Top 10) and a remarkable 441 points profit from his outright picks.

His place picks boast a commendable return on investment (ROI) of 25%, while the outright picks impress with an ROI of 40%.

Memorable successes from his selections include:

  • Yuto Katsuragawa at the ISPS Handa @ 125/1
  • Hideki Matsuyama at the Genesis Invitational @ 80/1
  • Richard McEvoy at the European Masters @ 150/1
  • Tom Lewis at the Portugal Masters @ 66/1
  • Bubba Watson at the Travellers Championship @ 50/1
  • Mito Pereira at the Bogota Championship @ 125/1
  • Kevin Na at the Colonial @ 66/1
  • Christian Bezuidenhout at the Andalucia Masters @ 100/1

These examples underscore Craig’s ability to identify substantial odds. His dedication to thorough research and aptitude for identifying market value are apparent.

During our own trial, the service performed exceptionally, yielding a profit of 41 points on the golf tips. It’s worth noting that Craig utilizes conservative stakes, so adopting a standard one-point each-way staking strategy would yield results comparable to 410 points profit, an impressive outcome.

Given the quantity of tips provided, it’s important to consider the associated workload. However, subscribers can opt to exclusively follow either the outright tips or place tips if the volume feels overwhelming.

In any case, Edwards Tips is a premium service with outstanding long-term results.


5. The 20 Minute System

While it may not fit the traditional mold of a “tipster,” The 20 Minute System has proven its worth with exceptional results deserving of recognition.

This system, developed by Mike Cruickshank, renowned for his expertise in matched betting, is software designed to scan both exchange and bookmaker markets. It focuses on identifying value each-way bets in golf, particularly targeting instances where the place part of a bet offers value compared to Betfair’s win and place odds.

Operating the system is simple, requiring just around 20 minutes per week to find the recommended bets (hence the name). The results have been remarkably impressive, generating 519 points profit in the initial 18 months of operation and an additional 302 points profit during our nine-month live trial.

During our trial period, notable winners emerged, such as Thriston Lawrence securing victory in the Joburg Open at 200/1 and Luke List clinching the Farmers Insurance Open at 80/1, alongside other successes at 45/1 and 33/1.

With bookmakers offering generous place terms, including up to 10 or 11 places in major tournaments and prominent tour events, each-way betting presents excellent value. The The 20 Minute System capitalizes on this very effectively to deliver value bets for members.



4. Golf Betting Club

The Golf Betting Club, founded by Scottish brothers Duncan and Neil, traces its roots back to their father, a golf journalist, who ignited their passion for tour predictions and golf betting.

With over two decades of experience in golf betting, their journey with the Golf Betting Club began in March 2020 during the temporary suspension of professional golf due to the coronavirus outbreak. Utilizing their accumulated knowledge, the brothers initially provided free golf bet tips accessible to all. However, these tips now require a subscription fee.

Leveraging their extensive betting background, Duncan and Neil meticulously developed over 100 player profiles for the world’s top golfers. These profiles grant them a competitive edge, and each year they refine, enhance, and expand upon them.

The Golf Betting Club has seen considerable success with their selections, including some notably high-priced winners. They provide tips for the main PGA and DP World (formerly European) tours, as well as the LIV tour.

Some of their top winners over the years have included:

N.B. – sign up to a 6 or 12 month membership of Golf Betting Club quoting ‘HonestBettingReviews25’ and they’ll refund £25 as a discount! 



3. Sporting Life Golf (Ben Coley)

The primary golf tipster at The Sporting Life is Ben Coley, a gentleman who has earned a formidable reputation through a series of remarkable triumphs over the years.

Ben’s performance in 2020 was particularly notable, marked by impressive victories such as Marc Warren’s triumph at the Austrian Open at odds of 150/1, Sami Valimaki’s sensational win at 250/1 in the Oman Open, and Cameron Smith’s impressive victory at 50/1 in the Sony Open.

While Ben’s results in 2019 were not as remarkable, he achieved profitability in each of the preceding three years, which is certainly commendable. He then significantly improved in 2021, 2022 and 2023, as evidenced by his annual totals:

  • 2024: +10pts (so far)
  • 2023: +312pts
  • 2022: +585pts
  • 2021: +693pts
  • 2020: +364pts
  • 2019: -145pts
  • 2018: +51pts
  • 2017: +316pts
  • 2016: +191pts
  • TOTAL: +2366 pts

Throughout his career, Ben has secured several significant successes, including:

  • Russell Henley for the Honda Classic in 2014 at 300/1
  • Richie Ramsay for the Omega European Masters in 2012 at 100/1
  • Brett Rumford for the Ballantines Championship in 2013 at 80/1
  • Billy Horschel for the BMW Championship in 2014 at 70/1
  • Kyle Stanley for the Waste Management Phoenix Open in 2012 at 66/1
  • Hunter Mahan for the Barclays in 2014 at 50/1

Some remarkable achievements indeed. It’s worth noting, however, that due to the popularity of the tips (and their free availability), achieving the advised prices can be extremely challenging, if not impossible, for most followers.

Consequently, many may have to settle for odds somewhat lower than those advised. However this is not Ben’s fault; in some ways, he has become a victim of his own success.

Before joining The Sporting Life’s tipping team, Ben had a background in providing betting tips on Sports Live Radio and also gained experience working for one of the UK’s leading bookmakers. His commitment to studying golf form for countless hours has undoubtedly paid off, evident in his successful track record over the years.

With Ben’s tips freely available and his established track record, he has a deserved reputation as one of the best in the business. 


2. Golf Forecast

Our next contender, Golf Forecast, distinguishes itself from traditional golf services due to its unique approach. Unlike conventional tipsters, Golf Forecast relies on an algorithm rather than human analysis to generate selections.

This algorithm draws from Shotlink data, compiling extensive statistics on each player and assessing their strengths and weaknesses. When the algorithm identifies instances where a player’s odds are undervalued, that player is selected as a bet.

Moreover, the algorithm employs machine learning to continuously update and refine itself based on new data, ensuring it maintains an edge over the market in the long term. Golf Forecast’s performance speaks for itself, with nearly 1,310 points profit amassed since its inception in 2017. The exceptional return on investment (ROI) of 39% ranks among the highest of any golf service we’ve encountered.

On average, results have produced approximately £168 in monthly profit at a £10 per point stake to advised prices, providing a welcome supplemental income.

Stand-out winners from their selections include:

  • Ian Poulter at the Houston Open – WON at 100/1
  • Bryson DeChambeau at the Northern Trust – WON at 90/1
  • Matt Kuchar at the Sony Open – WON at 40/1
  • Patrick Reed at the Masters – WON at 55/1
  • Lanto Griffin at the Houston Open – WON at 60/1

As you can see some very nice winners there. We have run two trials of the service and it has performed well in both, proving itself under the spotlight. 

We had no hesitation in awarding Golf Forecast a PASSED rating in our review and we have no hesitation awarding it a place high on this list. 



1. The Golf Insider

Claiming the prestigious top spot on our list is the Golf Insider, a tipster who has showcased an extraordinary track record of success spanning more than seven years. With a remarkable knack for identifying and delivering remarkable winners at significant odds, the Golf Insider consistently maintains an outstanding return on investment.

Since launching their tipping service in 2014, the Golf Insider has amassed an unparalleled profit of over 2,000 points, equivalent to an impressive £20,000 profit at £10 per point stakes.

This remarkable feat has been achieved with an exceptional return on investment of 30%, firmly establishing the Golf Insider as one of the foremost names in golf tipping.

Throughout our live trial of the service, the Golf Insider continued to shine, securing victories at odds of 150/1 and 50/1.

Stand-out successes by the Golf Insider include:

  • Marc Warren at 150/1
  • Chris Kirk at 125/1
  • Rasmus Hojgaard at 200/1
  • Andrew Dodt at 150/1

  • Thomas Pieters at 66/1
  • Martin Kaymer at 70/1

These accomplishments underscore the Golf Insider’s prowess in identifying undervalued players through their computer model and value ratings, which integrate vital statistics like strokes gained off the tee, greens in regulation and putting performance.

The Golf Insider’s enduring success and consistent performance over such an extensive period are a testament to their skill and expertise. With an unmatched record of excellence and longevity, it comes as no surprise that the Golf Insider rightfully claims the top position on our list.




To summarize, we’ve presented our Top Ten Golf Tipsters, each showcasing expertise and reliability over a substantial period. While some offer free tips and others charge a fee, all have earned trust within the industry.

It’s essential to recognize that golf tipsters typically have lower strike rates compared to horse racing and football tipsters. This requires a larger betting bank and more patience, as there may be prolonged periods of losses despite the tipster’s overall strength.

However, with the right approach and an understanding of these dynamics, following a top golf tipster from our list can lead to significant success. The satisfaction of landing one of their 100/1+ winners is truly fulfilling!

Above all, please gamble responsibly. It’s crucial to only wager amounts that you can afford to lose.

As long as you always do that, golf betting can be both fun and rewarding, particularly if you’re following a top tipster.

What Sets the Best Horse Racing Tipsters Apart From the Rest?

Feel free to inform us if you believe there are any notable omissions from this list that warrant inclusion. Your insights are valuable to us.



15. The Sporting Life

The Sporting Life, one of the UK’s longest-standing betting advisory services, has evolved from its origins as a print newspaper to become an exclusive online platform.

Initially led by Ben Linfoot, who curated their renowned Value Bet column, they now feature a team of expert tipsters. This team includes Mark Howard and Tony McFadden for ante-post tips, Chris Day for weekend selections, and David Massey for weekday recommendations.

With a cumulative profit exceeding 3,800 points since 2003, the Sporting Life has built an impressive track record. This is particularly the case in horse racing, with notable contributions from their golf tipster, Ben Coley.

What sets them apart is their policy of offering tips free of charge, setting them apart from more prominent figures such as Hugh Taylor and Pricewise.

Although their number of bets may be relatively modest, following the Sporting Life’s advice may not always yield as much profit as other tipsters on the market. Nevertheless, their consistent and complimentary service merits recognition.


14. Steve Lewis Hamilton

Steve Lewis Hamilton is a respected figure in the horse racing tipping community, boasting a wealth of experience in the industry.

Hamilton’s primary service, dubbed the “Private Service,” has generated an impressive profit of 875 points since its inception in 2008. That has been achieved with an impressive return on investment of 20%, underscoring his remarkable track record.

In addition to his “Private Service,” Hamilton offers an “Exchange Service” which has contributed over 420 points in profit since its launch in 2010. 

Collectively, Hamilton’s services have amassed approximately 1200 points in profit over the course of a decade, a commendable accomplishment by any standard.

An important testament to his expertise came from an investigation conducted by The Observer a few years ago, following Steve’s tips for a year.

The results were overwhelmingly positive, with Hamilton accruing 113 points in profit, equivalent to £11,345 for advised £100 stakes. The return on investment was impressive at 48%.

The Observer adjudged it “a master class in tactical, value betting” and dubbed Steve “Britain’s foremost professional backer.”

Secrets of his success:  In Thoughts and Secrets of Successful Punters, Hamilton says he forms “tissues” which are basically his own view of the prices horses in a race should be. To do this, he first reduces races to contenders and non-contenders.

Then “it is down to form study and looking at how the race will be run, the conditions and who it will suit and then allocating prices based on this.”



13. Tom Segal (Pricewise)

No roundup of top racing tipsters would be comprehensive without recognizing Tom Segal, widely known as Pricewise from the Racing Post.

In a similar vein to other notable tipsters like Hugh Taylor, Mr. Segal’s widespread popularity can make it tough to follow his tips.

Upon the release of his tips, the odds often rapidly plummet, particularly for long-shot selections.

The Racing Post doesn’t provide an exhaustive record of Tom’s results. However, his tips have consistently proven profitable, with an ROI over 20% whenever he has been monitored by other publications.

Secrets of his success: In The Secrets of Pricewise: The World’s Number One Tipster Revealed, Segal talks quite a bit about the value of trainers and jockeys being underestimated by punters.

Talking about master trainer John Gosden, Segal comments “He’s got 150 horses, he’s won this race countless times before and he knows exactly the level of horse he needs to win it again. So for Gosden to be running it is a tip in itself. You might get 10/1 about a horse when it should really be a 5/1 shot.”

Commenting on jockeys in Thoughts and Secrets of Successful Punters, he asserts “I strongly believe they are the most important factor in any race after the ability of the horse.”

Finally, much like just about all of his colleagues on this list, Tom says he watches past races many times over to find his selections.



12. Laurence Lambourn – Equine Investments

Laurence Lambourn is widely regarded as a top-tier tipster, having founded Equine Investments in 2003. Over the ensuing decade, the platform amassed an impressive profit of over 1,000 points, boasting an outstanding ROI of 30%.

Due to high demand for their tips, Equine Investments switched to a performance-based subscription model in 2013. This adjustment was necessary to address the challenge posed by rapidly declining prices after tips were released.

Despite the change in business model, the tipping service has consistently delivered exceptional results, maintaining a high ROI.

However, excellence comes at a price. The current subscription fee is £825 per cycle, with each cycle representing 30 points of profit. 

Considering its consistent and remarkable performance over two decades, Equine Investments is undoubtedly one of the best in the business. 

Secrets of his success: In the highly educational Thoughts and Secrets of Successful PuntersLaurence says he uses the Racing Systems Builder database to generate his positive and negative factors about horses, which he then uses to get the shape of a race. Laurence spends hours studying videos of past races. 

On advice for us punters, Laurence says “it’s all about the prices. Perhaps try and come up with prices for your fancies and stick with them. If the prices don’t appear then leave the bet.” Sounds like good advice to us from one of the very best in the game.



11. Hugh Taylor

Hugh Taylor, the leading tipster at At the Races, boasts an undeniable track record that speaks volumes about his skill.

Over a career spanning more than twelve years in the industry, Hugh has achieved an impressive profit of 3,324 points. That has been achieved with a remarkable ROI surpassing 30%.

Maintaining a ROI of nearly 30% over a period exceeding twelve years is an achievement that even the most esteemed hedge fund managers in the City would admire.

However, there is a slight caveat to this remarkable success: earning profits solely by following Hugh’s tips can be quite challenging. This is because the selections are backed heavily as soon as they are released. We observed this during our review of Hugh Taylor Tips.

Hugh himself acknowledges this challenge, advising followers to only back his tips if they can secure 80% of the recommended price.

Secrets of his success: Hugh says the main tool he uses to analyse form is Computer Timeform, commenting “it remains an excellent guide to the merits of past performances and it provides a very good overview of a race in terms of ratings as well as the interpretative comments on each horse’s past performances.”

In addition Taylor says he also uses the Query feature of Raceform Interactive for statistical purposes, but that his most potent weapon is studying videos of past races. 



10. USA Racing Tipster

Despite the increasing popularity of horse racing in America, the availability of top tipsters specializing in US racing is noticeably limited. However, one standout service addressing this gap is the USA Racing Tipster.

Having followed their tips for several years, we can confidently vouch for the service’s high quality and effectiveness. During our live trial, it has delivered a profit of just over 100 points.

In terms of overall performance, the USA Racing Tipster has accrued a total profit exceeding 390 points at advised staking (or 490 points at level staking).

Notably, it boasts an exceptional return on investment (ROI) of over 51% at advised stakes and 56% at level stakes. These ROI figures rank among the highest we have encountered across various sports, extending beyond horse racing.

However, success can bring its own set of challenges. In this instance, prices often shorten significantly after the release of tips, as members rush to secure the advised odds.

To fully capitalize on this service, it is crucial to have a diverse array of bookmaker accounts and the ability to act swiftly upon receiving the tips.

As of now, the USA Racing Tipster does not have a website. If you are interested in joining, please email us at



9. Racing Consultants

One of the earliest tipster services we evaluated on this platform back in 2015 was Racing Consultants, and it immediately impressed us with its outstanding performance.

During our initial trial, the service delivered an impressive 135 points profit at advised prices. That came at an exceptional ROI of 34%.

Since then, Racing Consultants has maintained its excellence and continued to flourish. The total accumulated profits now exceed an impressive 1,100 points, solidifying its status among the elite group of top-tier tipsters.

In our follow-up trial, the results have also impressed with over 100 points profit made again, just as in our initial trial. 

The tips are exclusively provided by Rory Delargy, a well-known figure in racing circles due to his roles as a writer for the Irish Daily Star. He has also been a commentator on Timeform Radio and William Hill Racing Radio.

While David Massey was previously involved in providing tips, Rory has been the sole tipster since 2017. The results have not only remained consistently strong but have arguably improved since Rory become sole tipster.

Rory’s selections are accompanied by detailed write-ups, showcasing his extensive knowledge and the meticulous hours he dedicates to form study.

This commitment to in-depth analysis has undeniably paid off, establishing Racing Consultants as one of the most reputable tipsters around. 



8. Back Lucrative

When discussing the elite tier of tipsters, only a handful have managed to amass over 1,000 points in profit over their careers.

Breaking through the 1,500-point barrier is an even more exclusive feat, and Back Lucrative is among the rare tipsters to achieve this milestone.

Operated by Michael Carr, Back Lucrative is a highly esteemed tipping service that has been operational since 2013. With a total profit of 1,547 points, they have firmly cemented their status as a top name in the industry.

During our live trial of Back Lucrative’s “Value Tips,” they showcased their top-tier tipping skills by achieving a total return of 180 points in profit.

Michael Carr, the founder, is renowned for his commitment to innovation. That innovation has led to the creation of spin-off services such as Flat Flyers and Hidden Winners. In our live trials of these services, Hidden Winners performed notably well, accumulating 61 points in profit at advised prices.

With consistently impressive results and a dedication to innovation, Back Lucrative stands out as a tipping service deserving of consideration for those seeking reliable and high-performing options.



7. Always Back Winners

Always Back Winners is a tipster service with a catchy name and a straightforward approach that hits the mark.

Established in 2015, this service specializes in flat racing, covering both turf and all-weather tracks.

Gary, the provider of the tips, brings valuable insights as an ex-owner and has access to insider information. This info concerns “triers,” horses specifically prepared to perform well on certain days. This insider knowledge has led to numerous notable successes.

Gary’s strategy of focusing on value selections at odds of 8/1 or higher, rather than backing short-priced favorites, has proven effective over the long term.

Since its inception, Always Back Winners has accumulated a total profit of over 1,015 points, showcasing an impressive track record.

Over the course of our live trial, the service delivered a commendable 105 points in profit, boasting a 21% ROI and an impressive 42% strike rate.

Following our trial period, they have sustained their profitable run, adding an additional 150 points profit to date.

The service also enjoys taking on challenges from £1,000 to £10,000, risking a portion of the bank (2.5%) on each bet.

Remarkably, they have achieved the £10,000 target three times—in 2015, 2017, and 2020—demonstrating exceptional performance.

While this tipster may fly under the radar, Always Back Winners undoubtedly deserves more recognition and acclaim. With their consistent profits and impressive track record, they unquestionably rank among the top racing tipsters available. 



6. The Outside Edge

The Outside Edge, a tipster based at the Betting Gods network, is led by Darren. He employs a dual approach to his tipping strategy.

Darren provides two sets of tips daily: the first set is sent the evening before to capture value in the markets, while the second set, sent in the morning, focuses on market trends to identify additional value.

Since December 2019, The Outside Edge has amassed a profit of over 700 points, showcasing the effectiveness of their approach.

The average monthly profit has consistently been robust, averaging just under £330 per month at £25 per point stakes. The service also displayed favorable results during our live trial, generating 269 points of profit.

With a ROI exceeding 9% and a solid strike rate of nearly 30%, The Outside Edge has maintained strong figures for over four years.

The Outside Edge, with its successful track record and consistent profitability, emerges as a tipster service worthy of consideration.


5. Loves Racing

Loves Racing, aptly named after its founder Brett Love, distinguishes itself with its exceptional performance as a tipster service.

Coming from a family deeply entrenched in horse racing, Brett Love’s connection to the sport runs deep. Following a career-ending injury that thwarted his professional football aspirations, Love embraced his family’s profession but on the opposite end of the betting spectrum as a professional gambler.

Love has demonstrated a remarkable knack for selecting high-priced winners, particularly in large handicaps, with numerous 50/1 shots successfully landing.

Since stepping into the public spotlight as a tipster in 2017, Love has consistently outshone bookmakers, accumulating over 900 points in total profit.

Overall, Loves Racing has proven to be a top-tier tipster with a track record for landing huge winners.  


4. Hanbury Racing

Hanbury Racing, a relatively recent addition to the tipster scene, has garnered significant attention since its launch in 2020.

Hosted on the Mega Tipsters platform, this service has earned a reputation for selecting winners at odds of 100/1 and higher.

With a total profit exceeding 1,500 points to date, Hanbury Racing has demonstrated its capacity to deliver substantial returns. That is equivalent to over £15,000 profit at £10 per point stakes,

The service maintains a respectable strike rate of 19%, but what truly sets it apart is its exceptional ROI of 34%.

Richard Hutchinson, the tipster behind Hanbury Racing, exhibits a profound understanding of horse racing, evident in his detailed write-ups. His expertise is further highlighted by winning the Tote Ten To Follow Jumps competition in 2020.

During our live trial, Hanbury Racing performed admirably, producing a return of 238 points profit with an ROI of 27%.

They even secured a 100/1 winner during the trial, one of the biggest ever wins recorded in our trials.

Hanbury Racing’s success over the past couple of years suggests its potential for further advancement in the rankings. If the service continues to achieve results of this caliber, it may ascend even higher in this list. 



3. Racing Intelligence

Racing Intelligence earns a prominent position in our rankings by taking an unconventional approach compared to most other tipsters.

Departing from conventional methods such as form analysis, this service distinguishes itself by sourcing tips from an “insider” employed at a leading UK bookmaker.

While claims of possessing “inside information” often face skepticism, our own live trial substantiated Racing Intelligence’s assertions with exceptional results. The service achieved a remarkable 192 points profit at advised prices and 76 points profit at Betfair SP.

When assessing its long-term performance, Racing Intelligence’s results parallel the very best in the industry. It has generated over 1,000 points profit at advised prices and 500 points profit at Betfair SP.

With outstanding results at both advised prices and BSP, Racing Intelligence is deserving of a  position high on this list.


2. Bet Alchemist

Under the guidance of Nicky Doyle, The Bet Alchemist has showcased remarkable resilience over the years. Since its inception in 2012, the service has accumulated a total profit of just over 830 points.

This equates to an average annual profit of 72 points, which translates to approximately £3,620 in profit with £50 stakes.

A notable characteristic of The Bet Alchemist is its focus on generally available prices, rather than exclusively targeting best prices. This makes the advertised results more achievable for members than some other tipsters. 

During our own trial, The Bet Alchemist delivered a commendable 38 points in profit, demonstrating a ROI of 26%.

The service particularly shines during major racing festivals, showcasing a remarkable knack for identifying big-priced winners. That includes winners at odds of 25/1, 66/1, 33/1, and more, especially during events like Cheltenham.

Following The Bet Alchemist is straightforward, with most bets provided on weekends and during prominent race meetings.

The service has been on fire over the last couple of years, generating 109 points profit in 2023 and over 100 so far in 2024.

Given its consistent performance and reliability, The Bet Alchemist proves to be a valuable asset to any betting portfolio. Its track record speaks volumes, and is a trusted option for bettors seeking a reliable and longstanding tipping service.

Factors We Looked At When Choosing the Best Horse Racing Tipsters

When creating the above list, we considered various factors, including:

  1. Return on investment (ROI): This metric allows for comparing tipsters by indicating the amount they would yield from every £100 (or equivalent currency) staked. In horse racing, an ROI exceeding 10% is considered good, while over 20% is regarded as exceptional.
  2. Strike rate: Also known as the win rate, this reveals how frequently the tips result in a positive outcome. Horse racing tends to have a lower strike rate compared to football due to higher odds. A higher strike rate implies shorter losing streaks and easier bank management.
  3. Profit/loss (P/L): Typically expressed in points or units, this provides the actual figures of a tipster’s profit or loss.
  4. Betting bank growth: This measures the increase in a betting bank over a specific period. For instance, starting with a £1,000 bank, doubling or tripling it within a year demonstrates substantial growth.
  5. Longevity: The most crucial aspect is whether a tipster can consistently perform over an extended period. While short-term success might be just luck, a tipster with a long track record demonstrates a genuine edge over bookmakers. The length of a tipster’s history enhances confidence in their skill beyond mere chance.

While these are the primary factors we consider when evaluating tipsters, our assessment encompasses a broad perspective. We incorporate these factors alongside others to determine the top-rated tipsters.


Other Factors to Consider when Choosing a Horse Racing Tipster

Selecting the right horse racing tipster is crucial for maximizing your profits. Here are some key factors to consider when making your decision:

  1. Track record: Look for tipsters with a proven track record of success over an extended period. A tipster who consistently delivers profitable tips is more likely to be reliable and knowledgeable in their field.
  2. Transparency:Transparency is vital when evaluating tipsters. Check if they provide detailed information about their past performance, including both winning and losing bets. This transparency allows you to assess their overall profitability and make informed decisions.
  3. Expertise: Consider the expertise of the tipster. Are they knowledgeable about the specific type of racing you are interested in?  Tipsters with specialized knowledge can provide more accurate and valuable tips.
  4. Communication:Evaluate how the tipster communicates their tips. Do they provide clear and concise reasoning behind their selections? Are they accessible for questions or clarifications? Good communication ensures that you understand the rationale behind each tip and can make informed decisions.
  5. Cost:Consider the cost of subscribing to a tipster’s service. While top tipsters may charge higher fees, the potential returns on their tips can outweigh the initial investment. However, be wary of exorbitant fees that may not justify the quality of tips provided.

By carefully considering these factors, you can narrow down your options and find the best horse racing tipsters out there.

Common mistakes to avoid when following horse racing tipsters

While following horse racing tipsters can be highly profitable, it’s important to avoid common mistakes that can hinder your success. Here are some pitfalls to watch out for:

  1. Blindly Following Tips: while tipsters provide valuable insights, blindly following their tips without checking if they have been independently verified is risky. Always ensure there is independent confirmation that results are actually real before following with your own money. 
  2. Chasing losses: It’s natural to want to recover losses quickly, but chasing losses can lead to impulsive betting decisions. Stick to your betting strategy and avoid making emotionally driven bets.
  3. Proper bankroll management is crucial for long-term success. Avoid betting more than you can afford to lose and allocate your funds wisely across different bets.
  4. Switching tipsters frequently: tempting to switch tipsters after a losing streak, but consistency is key. Stick with reliable tipsters for an extended period to accurately evaluate their performance.

By avoiding these common mistakes, you can make the most of horse racing tipsters’ expertise.
