MK Horse Racing Tips is (funnily enough) a new horse racing tipster service which is operated by the Betting Gods team, with selections coming courtesy of tipster, Mike. It utilises a variety of bet types kin order to produce a profit.
Introduction MK Horse Racing Tips
I am always keen to see something new from the Betting Gods group. I maintain my stance that they have a lot of integrity given this kind of business and that is a definite rarity.
More than that, their track record for producing tipsters of a certain standard is well documented, and when services have failed, Darren (the owner of Betting Gods) seems to give them a fair grace period to turn things around, before stopping clients spending more money. This brings me to the latest release from the group which comes in the shape of MK Horse Racing Tips.
Now, I am going to make a comment here which is perhaps not controversial, but definitely cynical. I was not initially impressed by the tipster’s results. There are several reasons for this, however MK Horse Racing Tips is one of those rare tipster services which potentially offers more than it first seems.
What Does MK Horse Racing Tips Offer?
At its core, MK Horse Racing Tips is very much in line with what you would expect from all tipster services offered by Betting Gods. This means consistent selections (a near daily affair) with tips made available through a few different channels, Monday to Sunday, between 9am and Midday.
There is of course email, as you would expect, and Betting Gods have a member’s area where selections are made available. There is also an app. On days when tips are available, you can expect a full write up from Mike on why horses have been selected. On days where there aren’t selections, MK Horse Racing Tips subscribers will also be notified of this fact.
Now, moving on to the bets themselves, there is a lot to discuss. Mike uses a combination of bet types in order to produce his profits as previously mentioned. These start with single bets (both win and each way) and go into various multiples and small accumulators.
Whilst MK Horse Racing Tips doesn’t tend to go much higher than a treble, on the occasional day this has been known. These are inevitably at massively varied odds with a lot of the win and each way bets favour short to middling odds. Where MK Horse Racing Tips really comes into its own is the doubles and trebles where you can win big by. Here odds of double figures are a common affair.
Of course, because o the risks that come with this sort of betting approach, Mike does have a staking plan in place for MK Horse Racing Tips. Each bet comes with advice on exactly how much you should be betting on each bet.
This starts at 0.25 points according to the proofing – mostly on the longer odds accumulators) going all the way up to 3 points on some bets. This never feels frivolous and with a recommended betting bank of 75 points, there is more than enough to cover any down periods that MK Horse Racing Tips has.
In terms of the strike rate, MK Horse Racing Tips stands at 25.21%. This doesn’t sound great at first glance, I will admit. When you look at the fact that Betting Gods claim average odds of 6.4 however, I am inclined to view this in a much more positive light. I would even go as far as to say that all things considered, it is pretty impressive really.
How Does MK Horse Racing Tips Work?
There doesn’t seem to be any set system in place for MK Horse Racing Tips in terms of how it works. What I mean by this is that Mike doesn’t say anything about a specific contributing factor being central to his selections. Instead, there seems to be a very measured approach considering a lot of different aspects on a day to day basis.
Whilst I haven’t really mentioned it yet, when you look at your selections, you also receive a full write up on them. This means that you are literally being shown how MK Horse Racing Tips works on a daily basis.
This is something that I have seen a few times recently and I remain ever impressed that tipsters are doing so. The fact of the matter is that when somebody explains how they reached a conclusion, you are able to take away from that and with a bit of abstract thought, start to improve your own betting. This is by no means a bad thing.
What is the Initial Investment?
Betting Gods offer just two options if you want to sign up to MK Horse Racing Tips. Fortunately, I believe that both offer good value. First of all, there is a quarterly option which is priced at just £49. Alternatively, you can look to secure better value by signing up for the full duration of a year for £149.
It is worth noting that with both options, your first 10 days cost you just £10 allowing for ample time to trial MK Horse Racing Tips. Furthermore, Betting Gods offer a full 30 day money back guarantee on their services, should you find that you are unhappy.
What is the Rate of Return?
MK Horse Racing Tips launched in July of this year and since then, it has produced an overall points profit of 54.3. Now I will hold my hands up and say that when I first saw this, I was not impressed with MK Horse Racing Tips at all.
The ROI which sits a 17.18% doesn’t necessarily do much in overturning this initial feeling and whilst bank growth of 60.4% does look somewhat better than the points and ROI, I believe that both of these elements overlook what I perceive to be the main selling point of MK Horse Racing Tips, namely that this is a service that when it wins big, has the potential to win very big. The fact that it keeps making profit as it ticks over is just a bonus.
Conclusion on MK Horse Racing Tips
The kind of approach that MK Horse Racing Tips has is one that I have seen a number of times before and by and large, I am not a fan. This is because typically speaking, there is the element of waiting for a win, all the while watching your betting bank slowly dwindle. Now as I have touched upon, when the wins come in, they can be genuinely incredible sums and I have seen other services make profits that frankly could be perceived as life changing.
In the case of MK Horse Racing Tips though, the results to date seem to suggest that there is some more consistency to be had. The proofing from Betting Gods shows that fundamentally, the same pattern of peaks and troughs is there. From August to September, the service went from 46 points down to 27.9 points of profit.
However, the next month, MK Horse Racing Tips was at new heights with a profit of 64.8 points. November is down from this at the time of writing indicating that this pattern isn’t going anywhere in the future. What stands out though is the time Mike has taken to turn around a substantial dip.
Of course, the fact that it has happened once does not necessarily mean that it will happen again in the future, and that brings me nicely into some of my final thoughts. In the grand scheme of things, it is still relatively early days for MK Horse Racing Tips. The betting approach that Mike uses really needs a good run in my book, if only to monitor what kind of downswings you can expect between wins.
I want to end by mentioning the value for money that can be had here. MK Horse Racing Tips is very respectably priced and that is a massive contributing factor to the “positives” column. The fact that Betting Gods are only asking £49 per quarter does make this one of the most affordable tipster services I have looked at for some time. There is no question about the fact that you are getting a lot for you money, however, this is far from the only consideration.
With all of this in mind, I don’t think that I would necessarily buy into MK Horse Racing Tips today. There isn’t enough longevity in my book to demonstrate that his has long term potential. I have mentioned it before, but whilst Mike did manage to turn round that first losing period, the fact of the matter is that MK Horse Racing Tips still lost out on almost a third of the recommended betting bank in one month.
With a wider sample of data (and presuming the results are consistent with what has happened to date), then MK Horse Racing Tips could be a steal. As it stands, there are still quite a lot of unknowns here and that does put me off.
