Overpriced Horse Tips – Full Review
Overpriced Horse Tips is a horse racing tipster from the Sports Betting Stars platform, with selections to be backed to win at one-point level stakes in UK and Irish races.
At first we were rather confused by the title of this tipster – we thought initially it referred to the tips being overpriced (or too expensive) but of course it refers to horses whose odds are higher than they should be.
That appeared to be an appropriate name given the results reported on their website coming into our trial, with over 750 points profit made at a return on investment of over 25%. Clearly they have shown an ability to identify value horses to back.
And our trial started off very well, going over 30 points up at advised prices early on.
Sadly though from mid-October onwards they hit something of a tough spell, finishing 23 points down at advised prices for the trial.
Here are the results for the trial in graph format:
As we say, whilst things started off well, there was a pretty steady decline from around the mid-point onward.
However, as we noted with another review we just completed, there was a big discrepancy between the results at advised prices and those at Betfair SP, with the latter making a profit of 23 points.
So whilst the results at advised prices are somewhat disappointing, with Betfair SP making a profit and more and more people using BSP for their horse racing bets these days, we feel like a NEUTRAL rating is fair in this instance.
Either way the results weren’t too dramatic so it’s one to watch for the time being in any event.
Ease of use: A pretty simple service to follow with an average of around one bet per day, normally sent out in the evening for the next day’s racing.
Availability of prices: There was not much of a problem in getting the advised prices and as discussed above, the Betfair SP results actually beat advised prices.
Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 11%, which is a little on the low side and would mean a degree of patience is required for following this service.
Advised Betting Bank: A 75 point betting bank is advised for following the service, which we think could be a little on the low side given that there was a 60-point drawdown from mid-September to the end of our trial. We think at least a 100 point bank should be advised for following the service.
Subscription costs: The subscription costs are free for the first 14 days then £29.99/month, £79.99/quarter or £299.99/year.
OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL
It was a slightly disappointing trial for Overpriced Horse Tips as we had been expecting something special from them based on past results. With a loss of 23 points to advised prices over the course of our six-month trial, it didn’t really live up to expectations.
However, a 23 point profit was made at Betfair SP for our trial which is encouraging so overall we feel this warrants a NEUTRAL rating and it’s a watching brief for now.
Overpriced Horse Tips – Results Update
14th December 2018
It’s been a tough run for Overpriced Horse Tips lately, with a loss of 28 points at advised prices since our last update.
That means they are now 24 points down at advised prices for our trial overall.
At Betfair SP the story is a little better, with a loss of 36 points since our last update but 22 points profit made for out trial overall.
We are nearly at the end of our extended six month trial of this service so will be wrapping things up soon.
Overpriced Horse Tips – Results Update
1st November 2018
It’s been an interesting start to our trial of Overpriced Horse Tips. On the one hand, results at advised prices have been reasonable, with a profit of 4 points made so far.
However, the unusual thing here is that the Betfair SP results are actually considerable better, with a massive 58 points profit made so far.
The difference between the two is down in large part to one horse, Super Kid at Wolves, which was advised at 20/1 but won at a huge Betfair SP of 75!
That is probably something of an anomaly and it is unlikely you will see such a massive difference between the advised price and BSP very often. However, if you’d had Best Odds Guaranteed available to you then you would have got the 40/1 official SP, which is still a significant improvement over the advised 20/1.
Also a note that although we launched this review on 23rd September, we were actually started receiving the tips privately on 27th June so have recorded results from then on.
Anyway, it will be interesting to see how this one progresses and whether we continue to see such a strong performance at BSP going forward.
Overpriced Horse Tips – New Review
23rd September 2018
You could be forgiven for being a little confused over the name of the service we are starting a trial of today – and that is Overpriced Horse Tips.
At first we though they were suggesting the service is overpriced, which would be a little strange to suggest that they are overcharging people for their service. Then we realised however they meant that the horses the service picks tend to be overpriced – or higher odds than they should be. That makes a little more sense!
Little matter about our confusion though, what counts is how good the service is at making profit and by the looks of things, they are very, very good at that.
The service has been running since 2013 and in that time has made over 750 points profit to 1 point stakes, which is superb stuff and the kind of results that very few services have ever achieved.
The return on investment in that time has been over 26%, which is an exceptional level to have maintained over such a long period.
There are around 40 tips per month, which works out at just over one per day, so a pretty simple service to follow.
With average odds of 7/1 this is all about identifying value at decent odds rather than picking obvious favourites, as is the case with most successful horse racing tipsters we have come across over the years.
We have actually been following this privately for the last couple of months so can verify the results published on the website for that period are accurate.
We are genuinely excited about trialling this service as it has one of the best long-term records we have seen and could join those rare few top-level tipsters that consistently beat the bookies and deliver bumper profits for their members.
So without further ado we will get things underway and will report back here soon on how things are going.
