Value Favs Full Review
Value Favs is a horse racing tipster from the reputable Tipster Street stable.
As the name suggests, they focus on favourites, which is quite unusual in the tipping game as most tipsters tend to look at higher-priced horses.
However, there is a huge advantage in going for favourites as it means you will win a high proportion of your bets (i.e. high strike rate), meaning you can bet a larger amount of your bank on each selection and build a bank more quickly.
Plus the losing streaks will tend to be shorter, which makes it easier psychologically to follow.
The trouble is, it is usually tough to find value in favourites as they tend to be “known quantities,” where as some outsiders that are unfancied often come in under the radar and go off a much bigger price than they should be.
So with all that said, could Value Favs overcome the obstacles and make a profit from backing favourites?
Well the answer is a clear “yes!”
Over the course of our three month trial, they made 48 points profit at advised prices.
That represented very close to a doubling of the bank, very commendable stuff.
Here is the results graph for the trial:
As you can see, a pretty steady graph with a bit of a dip towards the end, but then a nice finish to the trial.
The strike rate was pretty high as we would expect when backing favourites, at 43%, so nearly half the bets were winners.
The return on investment was good as well at 14%, which is a decent level given the strike rate achieved.
At Betfair SP, the results weren’t quite as good, with 24 points of profit being made, so half of the profits at advised prices.
But that’s still a respectable profit made over the trial.
Overall we are impressed with the service and are happy to give it a recommended rating.
Ease of use: Tips are sent out in morning with plenty of time to get the bets on. There are an average of two bets per day, so it’s a fairly straightforward service to follow.
Availability of prices: Prices are usually fairly obtainable, although as is often the case, do get pushed in by the time of the race so it is a good idea to get your bets on quickly.
Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 43%, which as we say, is at the higher end of what we normally see with horse racing tipsters.
Advised Betting Bank: A 50 point betting bank is advised for the service. This was never in jeopardy during the trial, but might be slightly on the aggressive side, so you may want a 75 point bank to be a little safer.
Subscription costs: Subscription costs are £4.99 for the 1st month then £19.95 per month or £39.95 per quarter, which are very reasonable for a service of this quality.
OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED
Value Favs achieved the remarkable feat of making a profit from backing favourites, something that is notoriously difficult in betting.
Making 48 points profit during our trial, they nearly doubled the bank over the course of three months.
The Betfair SP results achieved exactly half that, at 24 points profit.
With very reasonable subscription costs and minimal work involved in following the service, Value Favs is a top notch service and well worth signing up to.
Value Favs – Results Update
15th October 2016
A small decline for Value Favs, with 7 points lost at advised prices since our last update a month ago.
But still well up for the trial overall, at 46 points up.
At Betfair SP, things are a little worse, with 18 points lost since our last update, bringing them to 25 points up overall.
Let’s hope this is just a blip for Value Favs as we are very hopeful this will be turn out to be a top service. Every month so far has been a winning one, which is mightily impressive consistency.
Back soon with more updates.
Value Favs – Results Update
18th September 2016
Things have continued to progress nicely for horse racing tipster Value Favs since our last update, with a further 18 points of profit made at advised prices.
That takes them to 53 points in profit for the trial overall, very impressive stuff.
At Betfair SP things have also gone well, with a further 15 points of profit made since our last update, taking them to 43 points up overall.
Really good to see this one doing so well, with such a high strike rate (and therefore lots of winners), Value Favs is looking like a really top tipster.
Value Favs – Results Update
25th August 2016
It has been an excellent start to our trial of Value Favs, a horse racing tipster that focuses on backing favourites for profit.
After just under a month we are 35 points in profit at advised prices and 28 points in profit at Betfair SP.
This is very much living up to its pre-trial billing and delivering the kind of profits we were hoping for.
The strike rate has been superb so far as well, with 53% of the bets so far having been winners!
That included an eight-horse winning streak in the middle of August, fantastic stuff.
So far so good then for Value Favs. Let’s hope they keep up this level of form.
Value Favs – New Review
27th July 2016
What is that saying about London buses? You wait for ages and then three come along at once…
Well that is exactly how we are feeling about promising horse racing tipsters.
It had been quite a well since we had seen anything that really got us excited and made us think “this could be something special.”
And then in the last week, suddenly we find three all at once!
First off we had Early Odds, a highly impressive-looking tipster that takes advantage of early prices – but still makes a very good profit at Betfair SP.
Then there was Racing Investment, a high-strike rate service delivering incredible return on investment of over 70%.
As you may have guessed by the name, this is a tipster that concentrates on the top end of the market and finding favourites that represent value.
The good thing about such an approach is that you normally get lots of winners and that has certainly been the case here, with a strike rate of 48% to date.
So very nearly half of the bets so far have been winners!
The profit levels have been very good as well, with over 170 points profit to date since the service started in December 2015.
What is equally as impressive is that the return on investment so far has been 18%, which is very high for such a high strike-rate service.
And the consistency has been very good, with eight out of eight months to date being profitable.
So all in all this looks pretty awesome!
As ever with Tipster Street services, costs are very reasonable as well at just £4.99 for your first month and then £19.95/month or £39.95/quarter.
We are very much looking forward to this trial and if Value Favs can live up to its previous results then we may well have found a service worth adding to our armory.
Only time will tell of course, but initial signs are promising.
We will run the normal three month trial and report back on how things are going soon.
