Horse Racing tipsters of the week
There was plenty of profit to be had for both the punters and media experts this week.
But thanks to a couple of roughies, it was a pair of punters who kicked away at the top of the cash profit leaderboard.
Sitting at the summit with a bumper $9,930 in cash profit from $100 win bets was Adelaide local Boomgates31.
This punter has been in some cracking form lately, having found a profit in 4 of his past 5 tipping weeks.
This time he tipped 7 winners from 60 selections at an astonishing average price of $22.76.
You know his Profit on Turnover (POT) had to be big with these kinds of numbers.
It certainly was, with Boomgates31 rounding out the week with a thumping 166% POT.
And this was largely thanks to the rank outsider that he got a hold of at Mount Gambier last Friday.
Boomgates31 was one of the lucky few who tipped Benovsky in Race 4, that saluted a $135.10 odds.

They don't get much rougher than this one.
Or do they?
A few of our readers would've had a punt in the Group 3 R A Lee Stakes at Morphettville on Saturday.
The well supported Seabrook looked set to claim the win, before bolter Chapel City flew from nowhere.
While most were shaking their heads in disbelief, Beautifulfart would've been jumping out of his skin.
The punter from Townsville tipped the long shot, that paid a mind-boggling $136.50.

Talk about a bolt from the blue.
Along with another 9 winners, Beautifulfart steered punters who followed his horse racing tips with $100 bets into a cash profit of $8,430.
This larrikin will surely have a few more punters checking out his tips after this effort.
Next up is pro punter Shogun, who only continues to extend his stellar form.
The Queenslander racked up a cash profit of $6,730 over the past week.
This takes his 90-day haul total to an enormous $16,710, making him the highest profit-maker in this period.
Shogun's huge 90-day profit haul
Shogun owes much of his success this week to the Warwick Farm meet on Wednesday.
It was there he tipped two winners around the 20/1 mark, including the promising import Accountability.
With an overall 109% POT for the week it was good news if you were following this pro punter.
The final mention goes to a media expert who's in some ripping form himself.
WA form analyst Chris Blackwell earned a shout out last time for seeing his best bets get home, and at a juicy price too.
This week, he's only gone and repeated the dose.
No less than 7 of Blackwell's best bets saluted, including $12.60 winner Explosion at Kalgoorlie on Sunday.
This saw his profit surge up to $4K when taking actual staking into consideration which translated into a bumper 74% POT.
Blackwell is sure to have plenty of admirers heading into the Perth Winter Carnival.
Greyhound and Harness Racing tipsters of the week
Looking at the trotters first, and it was another Queenslander who had a week to remember.
Pro punter MichaelJ secured $1,600 in cash profit from $100 win bets after tipping 13 winners at a handsome strike rate of 30%.
When your winners are averaging around the $4.50 mark, you know there's a a cracking strike rate behind the profit statistics.
Regulars of theGreatTipOff.com will not be surprised with this effort from MichaelJ, whose tipping form extends a lot longer than the past 7 days.
Not only is he currently showing a 3-month tipping streak, but he's also sitting on an incredible 365 day profit in excess of the $30K mark.
Yes you are reading that right, punters following his harness tips with $100 win bets would have an extra $30K sitting in their bank account.
Fellow pro punter Roy Sundborg has also been hitting his straps lately.
This week, he raked in $2,160 in cash profit from $100 win bets after seeing a stack of his harness tips salute at an average price of $6.66.
But that doesn't tell half the story.
That's because Sundborg is a keen dogs punter too, and if you flip over to the greyhound tipping leaderboard, he's right up there with $3,500 in cash profit.
This is at a phenomenal 90% POT.
If you're on the lookout for some quality harness and greyhound tips, Sundborg looks to have both bases covered.
Lastly, we couldn't sign off without singing the praises of one of our favourite punters.
Sandgroper is a veteran on the site, having provided his tips at theGreatTipOff.com since all the way back in 2010.
In that time he's racked up some huge weekly profits, but we can't remember many as big as this.
He finished up with almost $20K in cash profit, after no less than 73 of his greyhound tips greeted the judge.
By far the standout was $190 pop Hello I'm Dorny, which scooted home at Mandurah on Sunday.
It was yet another tipping milestone from the fan favourite.
