Betting Tips
That Everyone "Knows"

John Hawkes and the Melbourne Trainers' Premiership
Everyone "knew" that John Hawkes, eager to win the Melbourne trainers' premiership, was bringing down horses from Sydney in July to complement his Melbourne team of horses.

Have a look at the table below. It shows how the John Hawkes' trained horses performed in July on Saturdays in Melbourne - the horses that everyone "knew" were primed for big races to help John Hawkes win the trainers' premiership.

What an absolute disaster. 25 runners - not one winner. Many were favourites. Just about all were kept very safe in the betting. Because punters "knew" the horses were set to win, as John Hawkes wanted to win the trainers' premiership, you can bet that his horses would most likely be under the odds on the tote and with the bookies. That's the way horse racing betting operates.

As we repeatedly stress on this site, what everyone "knows" in horse racing is guaranteed to provide you ways of losing betting money long term, nothing else. It can be no different, because racing is a negative sums game which consistently returns less money than is outlaid in bets.

You Need Top Odds

It is just about impossible to get a high enough strike rate backing short priced tote favourites and the poor value tote horses to make up for the big unders on the tote.

If you regularly get poor odds you must lose.

Short priced tote favourites
are losing bets.
