Golf, racing, football and tennis all provided 2012 profits

Golf, racing, football and tennis all provided 2012 profits

Having churned out winning tips on a regular basis, we've finished the year 347.16 points ahead to advised stakes - a fine return, we're sure you'll agree.

Our golf men led the way in 2012 - and will now look to do the same in the coming year.

Among Ben Coley's winners were 175/1 shot Merrick Bremner (first-round leader at the SA Open), 100/1 pick Richie Ramsay (Omega European Masters) and 66/1 chance Kyle Stanley (Waste Management Phoenix Open).

David John tipped up Branden Grace at 50/1 (Alfred Dunhill Links Championship) and 40/1 shot JJ Henry (Reno-Tahoe Open), while Dave Tindall had 50/1 winner Paul Lawrie at the Qatar Masters and nailed the correct score in the Ryder Cup as he made big profits in Medinah.

In racing, Ben Linfoot's Value Bet column finished in profit for the third consecutive year after plenty of big-priced winners including Cape Tribulation at 18/1 at the Cheltenham Festival, Tidal Bay at 10/1 in the bet365 Gold Cup, Tullius at 14/1 at Newmarket's Guineas meeting, Sholaan at 14/1 at York, El Viento at 14/1 at Ripon, Captain Ramius at 33/1 in the Ayr Gold Cup and more recently Hello Bud at 14/1 in the Becher Chase.

Our expert columnist, Channel 4 Racing's Simon Holt, also tipped up Captain Ramius and he's been in consistent form all season as a return of more than 40pts profit to advised stakes from over 70 previews suggests. Simon has been in flying form so far this National Hunt season and has tipped Hennessy winner Bobs Worth, December Gold Cup king Unioniste, Christmas Hurdle winner Darlan and King George hero Long Run in recent weeks.

In football, it was another bumper haul in May when our ante-post 2011/12 bets came in.

David John tasted success in the Golden Boot market for a second successive season with 10/1 shot Robin van Persie, while Chris Hammer was smiling after tipping both Bolton (11/2) and Blackburn (10/3) to go down.

We've had plenty of success in match betting too, our Premier League tips being particularly strong of late.

In rugby, our union expert Reece Killworth finished the year with 25 winning previews from the last 36 published and an overall profit of 54 points for the year, while in the league code our man with the inside knowledge, Castleford coach Ian Millward, was also well up for the year. It continued a remarkable run of success over recent years for the Australian who shows a healthy strike-rate in both the NRL and Super League.

The tennis team of Andy Schooler and Derek Bilton ended the year well in profit too, finishing the season with a flourish when 25/1 shots the Czech Republic won the Davis Cup. Derek also contributed plenty of points with his boxing previews.

All in all, it was a great year for the Betting Zone - a site which has now made a profit of almost 3,000 points to advised stakes in the last decade.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
