RaceBiz tipping selections for paid memberships are provided generally on Wednesdays and Saturdays and are accessed by logging into the private membership area with the user name and password created on purchase. During January 2019 there is a free trial running with selections provided in the RaceBiz LIVE Facebook Group and with links posted in associated groups.
In March 2018, the RaceBiz team updated the membership packages and the selection sheets. The way the tips are provided has changed and all members now receive the same selection sheets that include several different types of tips. These are designed to provide information that fits with different punting strategies and styles.
In December 2018, a new style of selections was added – Group Ratings. These selections are based on class, distance, recent form, time form and weight rating (with a rated number not a price).
Any winners will be highlighted in yellow and here is an example of what the results sheets look like: 3rd November Saturday 2018 Results
Looking at each section in turn:
Assessed Odds Selections
Tips are provided for several races for one race meeting in Victoria and selected races from other race meetings throughout the country. You will notice that the team do not always provide selections for every race. We are committed to providing value tips and selections, and subject to the horses’ form, race day conditions, and the type of race some races will be left out.
Generally there will be four or five selections per race with the top pick for the race at the head of the list. Assessed odds are provided by the RaceBiz tipster together with a suggested outlay to win $25 per race based on Dutch Betting(Percentage Punting). If a punter wants to outlay more per race, an easy way would be to multiply the suggested outlay by 2 or 3 or 4 to increase to $50, $75 or $100 per race. For different amounts, please refer to the Punting Calculation Sheets on this website. This is what the selections look like.
Options for these tips are to back one, two or more in a particular race. Win and place bets, and dutch betting (Backing several selections in a race so that no matter which horse wins, the returns are profitable) can also be considered.
Given that on most days there are 8 to 10 races tipped over up to four race meetings, members who prefer to only have two or three bets for the day have been asking: “How do I know which race to choose?”. And, of course, for our team there are always races and horses that stand out above others. To help with your choices the tipping selection sheet shows:
- The prices that you see with each selection are a rated or assessed price. If the assessed price is 5-1 and your betting platform is offering 25-1 then you are getting exceptional value. Conversely if it is assessed at 3-1 and your betting platform is offering 2-1, then this is very poor value and is not a good bet. Recommended not to back and shown on the results as a NO BET.
- A notation of M/O next to a horse’s name. When you see this, it means that mid-morning (when the tipping selections are being finalised), that large bets have been placed across various betting platforms. Note that RaceBiz use Betfair and will quote their odds and prices.
- If there is * after the horses name then the tipster favours this horse.
- If there is ** after a horses name, then this is a good bet.
- BB is a Black Booker that the team are following.
- The best bet in the top left hand corner is the Tipster’s best one of the day.
Here is an example from a recent results sheet showing the assessed odds for the winner with the Betfair Odds plus the return for the race. There is also a NO BET – in this case Assessed Odds were $5.00 and the best value that could be found was $5.00 so this particular horse in the race wasn’t backed whilst the other three were.
In addition to the Assessed Odds Selections for some of these races there will also be included six selections that can be used for QUINELLA, TRIFECTA and F4 betting. For standouts, there maybe options provided for Banker or Rover suggestions. Here’s an example:
Group Rating Selection sheet is based on class, distance, recent form, time form and weight rating. The selection has a rated number not a price, for example, 5/100 means Horse 5 with a 100 rating. Generally three selections per race, sometimes just two and as based on Flat Staking at Top Fluc Price or Betfair Starting Price. In this example odds quoted are Betfair SP.
Quick Picks and Best Bets.
These selections offer four tips per race in five or six race meetings across Australia and New Zealand. For each race meeting most of the card will be tipped. Some races will be left out if it is considered that they are not good races to be betting in. There is also one best bet for each race meeting or several best bets from one race meeting if it is a big carnival day.
There are no assessed odds provided with these tips and suggestions for using these them include: Dutch Betting (you will need to determine your own odds), flat staking, quinellas, trifectas and first fours.
Winners are highlighted in yellow, quinellas in blue, trifectas in red and F4 in brown. Winners are listed on the right hand side with best value on Betfair odds achieved during punting. The Quick Picks selections win rate very rarely falls below 50%, and generally averages somewhere around 60 – 65% and regularly finds winners at $15 and above.
A separate sheet is provided to the paying members on race days and will be uploaded to the website approximately 90 mins after the days tips are uploaded to the website, and is accessed by logging into the private Members Area.
These selections are also provided for FREE to non-paying members via the RaceBiz Facebook Group: RaceBiz LIVE: Black Bookers – Punting Strategies – Racing Insights
The Money Movers sheet is posted in the group late morning on racedays and can also be accessed in the FILES section of the Group.
This is information for any races where there is money movements and MONEY ON in the market that could affect the odds and possibly the punter’s decision whether to back the horse or not. These are not tips with assessed odds, simply reporting money movements to help our members choose their bets.
The results are posted in the Facebook Group, and here’s a recent example:
We also encourage all our members to work within their money management plan. Based on your available account decide what percentage to stake either per race, per race meeting or per day. Our suggestion is wager around 1% of your funds – bet within your means and build your bank slowly. Remember, it is better to earn $100 from $1000, than $1000 from $100!
