Selections are backed with 'points' from our imaginary betting bank and had you backed all such recommendations to the level suggested, you would have finished up with a profit of 320.24 points.
That figure has taken our total profit since the start of 2003 to more than 3,000 points!
Our expert racing tipsters Ben Linfoot and Simon Holt led the way in 2013.
Linfoot's increasingly-popular Value Bet column is up more than 130 points for the year after an outstanding run on both the flat and over the jumps.
His winners included Levitate, a 40/1 winner of the Lincoln; Sky Lantern at 12/1 in the 1000 Guineas; York Glory at 18/1 in the Wokingham Stakes and 20/1 shot Chance Du Roy in the Becher Chase.
Our long-standing columnist Holt also finished well up for the year. The Channel 4 Racing commentator made a profit of more than 80 points in 2013.
The big-priced winners kept coming in football with our experts bagging some tasty prices in the ante-post markets.
Crewe, the 66/1 picks of Nick Hext, won the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, while St Mirren were Scottish League Cup winners having been tipped up at 25/1 by Gareth Friel. In the Premier League, Ben Linfoot correctly called Manchester United as champions at 13/5.
Our cricket man, Dave Tickner, made a habit of landing some long-odds shots too.
Northants to win the Friends Life t20 tournament at 28/1 was the highlight of his betting year, one which also brought a 25/1 and 20/1 winners with Surrey and Delhi finishing bottom of the County Championship and Indian Premier League respectively.
Our golf team of Ben Coley and David John kept the big-price winners bubbling away, Brett Rumford at 80/1 in the Ballantine's Championship being the pick of the bunch.
Matt Kuchar was a 40/1 winner of the Accenture Match Play, while 50/1 pick Thomas Aiken won the Avantha Masters. Later in the season Joost Luiten (22/1) won the KLM Open, Gregory Bourdy (40/1) claimed the Wales Open and Dustin Johnson (40/1) landed the WGC-HSBC Champions event.
Our snooker expert Jeff Anderson was in top form in 2013, picking out Ali Carter (25/1) for the German Masters, Ronnie O'Sullivan (13/2) for the World Championship and Neil Robertson (8/1) for the recent UK Championship.
David John's NFL picks - he has just landed a 28/1 top rusher bet in the current season - Ian Millward's rugby league suggestions, Tom Millard's F1 bets and Andy Schooler's tennis selections also continue to produce, so there's no doubting that Betting Zone remains the place to visit for top betting advice.
