James Tucker

The best way to start this review of tipster James Tucker from BetAdvisor is probably to explain what the operation is all about.

BetAdvisor isn't a tipster or advisory service itself, as such, but more of a repository of individual tipsters, operating under one banner. They boast over 75 different tipsters (we're not reviewing all of them!) across 9 sports (we're not doing all those either!) and claim to have made massive profits for their members.

Subscription fees vary from tipster to tipster, but I should point out that they're not cheap! But initial cost of a service shouldn't put you off, if the profits are sustainable and enough to more than cover your subscription fees.

We're going to focus on their top four horse racing tipsters and this review relates to James Tucker, currently ranked no.2 of all the racing tipsters on BetAdvisor, charging £79 per month for his selections.

To date, James Tucker has made 883 selections for a total stake outlay of 49,790 units.
212 of these selections have won, giving a strike rate of 24%
And the 14,863 units profit generated so far gives an ROI of 29.8%

James Tucker uses a variable staking pattern and to date, his average bet size is 56.4 units, so for the purpose of our review we will declare 1 unit to be worth just £0.18, making for an average stake of £10.15 to bring the review in line with our normal nominal £10 level stake policy.

David Sutton will monitor the performance of James Tucker for the next 60 days, declaring our results at the odds advised in the emails we receive from BetAdvisor each day.
