The numbers are in from January's punting and tipping activity revealing some major shocks and unbelievable achievements to kick of the betting year. Amongst the two sets of place getters in the Profit on Turnover and Cash Profit categories, not a single member of Australia's racing media were represented.
Further data came in to support the performance of punters at theGreatTipOff.com with serial profit maker Formulator landing on top for the third month in a row. After notching up the highest profit on turnover in November (132% POT from 22 bets), the highest cash profit in December (4,860 from 54 $100 bets), the professional punter from Melbourne put together yet another betting masterclass making 129% POT in last month.
While it is hard enough for punters to produce this level of consistency over a short period of time, maintaining these efforts over a sustained period of time is reserved only for the punting elite. A title which gun punter Formulator has earned after publicly proving is prowess now for over three years.
With almost ten Punter of the Month awards, two Punter of the Year awards and an enviable life-time profit of $25,000 from $100 win bets, it's hard to overlook the significant advantage that his tips offer to the army of punters following his selections.
January runner-up was Kiwi punter TheBlazinAce finding seven winners at average odds of $8 for 107% POT, followed by New South Welshmen C7275s with 65% POT.
The Cash Profit category highlights punters who have made the most cash from their selections using an even $100 win stake. January saw Queenslander TopGun10 make $9,450 from $100 win bets off 72 winners at average odds of $6.87.
Runner-up Kendo7 made $4,660 from his 37 winners in the month while Mosse converted $100 win bets on his selections into $4,375 profit.
The best amongst the media were:
- Peter Davis from the Sydney Morning Herald (SMH) posting 17 tips and finding five winners at average odds of $5.56 a win for 64% POT.
- Chris Scholtz from RacingandSports.com.au delivered his followers 50% POT from 23 best bets; and
- Craig Mordey at SMH made 47% POT from 24 best bets.
