Funny how there is never a comment on this thread when Milham is doing well, then when he hits a bad week, all the "wanabe" tipsters come out from under the floorboards to have a go at the guy. If you don`t rate his tips, then don`t back them. Couldn`t be any simpler.

Regards his big Atlanta loss, that was a big big surprise. Show me someone that thought Giants would beat them so easily and I`ll show you a liar. We`ve all fancied teams that have ended up getting hammered at some time in the past.

MM - We are entitled to criticize a professional tipsters leans.  Particularly when the journo in question has people banned from this forum for doing so (and the shills at betfair duly oblige).

I don't read his tips any more (dont buy the RP) but hear about what hes tipping up occasionally.  By and large, his tips are horrible.  A monkey throwing darts at the point spreads would fare better.

The tipster leaves himself open to criticism with his actions.

You post tips/write a blog, you take your licks.

You get PAID to do it, then you should expect dog's abuse if you're no good.

That's not a comment on Millhouse's tips, I haven't seen them for a long, long time - it's the way of the betting world.

I agree partly with what you guys are saying, but, imo professional tipsters, with newspapers, are on a hiding to nothing and I should know. Nobody ever sees or compliments the winning tips, but when one has a bad day at the office all hell lets loose. Punters only remember the losing ones particularly when it costs them money.

If I or anybody else on here doesn`t fancy any of the Divisional Play-Off games this week we simply don`t bet. In Milham`s defence, he doesn`t have that option, he has to produce copy and give an opinion regardless.

He does however need to accept this scenario and take any criticism like water off a duck`s back. It`s part and package of tipping. Every punter believes that they are the best and can do better than the appointed newspaper tipster. I don`t know what was posted when Milham allegedly got people banned from the forum because of their postings, but it would be natural to assume that the comments were personal and of an abusive nature.

I like Orioles blogs each week and often have a punt on them if I don`t have an opinion of my own. After all us compulsive gamblers must have a bet of some kind, don`t we? However, I have never dreamed of posting derogatory statements about my learned friend`s tipping ability on the rare occasions when I followed him and done my nuts! Although if memory is correct, I have thanked him a few times when I won a right few bob thanks to him. Wink

Agree about the 'only as good as your last tip' point - which is particularly unfortunate given my Wildcard picks!

The guy is a journalist that has been asked to write about a sport he clearly follows. The problem is he is a journalist that's been asked to make picks and stakes for those picks and it is clear that is the bit he knows nothing about.

Seems you only have to be able to write well to get a job as a tipster in the RP.

His spread tips are generally desperate.
His recommended bet for last weekend was to sell the aggregate home/away supremacy at 7, Sporting immediately upped it to 8 presumably laughing in his face, I think it made up 66.
Spread betting is specialist and volatile and should be left to someone who does spreads only, anyone dipping their toe in the water last weekend will be hurt to the tune of 59 units, ugly....

Ouch Laugh

Spreads are terrifying.

I recommended a Buy of TD yardage in the Detroit/New Orleans game and every long completion or run saw the ball carrier collapse at the one yard line. By the third quarter, I was laughing hysterically and searching for my revolver.

Another resounding success last night.

"1pt buy GB Performance @ 79"

Settled at 5.

Well, this 'wannabe tipster' went 0-4 ATS, so I'm keeping my head down!

Although I did hit a totals bet, a TD scorer and my spread recommendation went rather better than SM; bought at 102,settled at 244 Laugh

Nice.

Such a poor tip.  Not much upside on a performance spread that high. Sportingindex must love him.
