The Inside Edge Review

The Inside Edge Review Updated: 21st October 2018

The man behind The Inside Edge tipping service is Micky O’Brien and he has been taking his horse racing betting seriously since 2000. He committed full-time to professional gambling over ten years ago and now operates on the Betfan tipster platform. The Inside Edge was proofed to Betfan in April 2017 and has been verified by The Tipster League since January 2018. The service averages 4 bets per day at average odds of 5.06/1.

The Inside Edge started with a bang in 2018 with a fantastic 159 points profit in January. Micky followed with another very profitable month before a dip in March and April. Profits were quickly restored with another bumper month in June, matching his January total.

Micky’s tips were red hot at the end of August, finishing top of our weekly tipster chart with a profit of £253 and a Return on Investment of 115%. He picked out eight winners during the week, six of them returning at a significantly shorter SP than their early prices. He saved the best for the weekend with Oh This Is Us at 9-1 (SP 11-2) at Chester.

The Inside Edge produced one of it’s biggest single winners with 16-1 tip Meandmyshadow at Southwell in January. He was clearly not the only one “in the know” with the mare being backed into 15-2 before Hollie Doyle drove her to a short-head victory. It is surely no coincidence that he makes a profit at every all-weather course. Micky says that his system is based around his ability to correctly price a race but also claims to have key contacts within the sport.

The service does particularly well on the all-weather with four artificial surfaces in the top seven most profitable tracks. Kempton Park tops the lot with well over 100 points profit. Statistics reveal a wide spread of odds for selections and a notable absence of odds-on favourites. Jockey Richard Kingscote has proved very successful when tipped by the service. The early indications are that Micky is sharper with his selections in chases than in hurdles but it is inconclusive until we have the results of a complete winter to assess.

The Inside Edge can vary a great deal on the number of daily selections. There were 158 tips in May but only 96 in April and 97 in August. They are currently showing a profit of £590.76 at a monthly average of £59.08. The strike rate for The Inside Edge is 23.54% with a Return on Investment of 3.55%.

Staking is kept simple with either 5 points to win or 2.50 points each-way recommended. Tips are usually available the night before racing. When new information comes to light on the day of the race, Micky will always share it with his subscribers. Monthly membership costs £68 or you can take out a quarterly membership for £136, saving one full month in fees. The Inside Edge is limited to 75 places and will be closed as soon as it is fully subscribed.
