Our friends from the good ol’ US of A are almost as keen on horse racing as us on this side of the pond, so it’s perhaps surprising there aren’t more US racing tipsters out there (or “cappers” as they would call them).
We imagine this void will gradually get filled as more states in the US legalise gambling and it becomes part of everyday life as it is over here.
In the meantime though there aren’t a great deal of tipsters to choose from, but the one we are starting a review of today looks pretty interesting.
It’s called the US Racing Expert from the Betting Gods platform and tips are provided by a guy called James.
He’s been a horse racing capper and writer for various publications in the US for several years now, and has proven himself to the Betting Gods team over recent months. He has written numerous blogs over at Betting Gods, including where he landed a $22,000 Kentucky Derby trifecta back in May!
From writing those blogs the Betting Gods team were impressed and asked him to proof his tips for US racing to them over a period of six months to see if he could generate a consistent profit.
He certainly managed to do that, netting just under £2,000 profit to £10 stakes, with an excellent ROI of 37% and growing the betting bank by nearly 200%.
The strike rate was good at 20% and the really good news is that all bets can be placed at the US tote, which is available at Betfair and most bookies so you don’t need to worry if your accounts have been restricted.
The other nice thing about US racing is that it gives you something else to potentially enjoy once the UK and Irish racing is finished for the day.
Anyway, we started receiving tips on 30th December so we will record results from then and will update how things are going here as the trial progresses.
