How Good Are The Racing Post Football Tipsters?

Yesterday saw the release of the Racing Post half-time team talk update on the football season, featuring fresh analysis and tips on the best ante-post bets from many of their in-house experts.

The key question that many will be asking…is just how well have the Racing Post football tipsters actually done since the start of the season? After all, before you sign-up to follow their experts, you would want to know how their track record stands up since August.

Mark is the Racing Post go-to guy when it comes to English Premier League tips and his name was attributed to 15 different League bets in August’s pre-season update.

Bets that look unlikely to come off for Mark include Swansea and Stoke to go down, his top scorer bets on Bent, Cisse, & Borini plus his suggestion to back QPR on the handicaps.
