What’s Your Strike Rate Looking Like?

Although the Strike Rate of a selection system is not the be-all-and-end-all, ignore it at your peril. The Strike Rate of a selection system is usually expressed as a percentage. To calculate it, the number of winning bets is divided by the total number of bets made. The result is then multiplied by 100 to convert it to a percentage.

Why It’s Important to Analyse Your Betting Performance

At this point, we should now have a selection system or, at least, the tips from one. As was stated earlier, even a bad selection system is better than no selection system at all. The reason for this is that the results of even a bad system can be analysed, and valid conclusions drawn, whereas it is pointless analysing the results of a totally random system since the results of the analysis will also be totally random. As a result, any conclusions draw from the analysis will be irrelevant.

The Importance of a Good Selection System

When a bet is placed on a horse, there are two choices: a selection system can be used to identify those horses which should be layed to lose or backed to win, or random amounts of money can be placed on randomly selected horses running in randomly selected races i.e. not use a selection system at all.
