About The Podcast

Every week our panel of experts dig into the betting action from the previous week on Matchbook, look ahead to the coming week’s sport, and provide a rare glimpse into the world of high-stakes betting.

About Matchbook

Matchbook is a peer-to-peer betting exchange offering high-limit markets and low commissions giving bettors a competitive advantage over bookmakers.

On Matchbook, bettors find better odds more often across all markets including football, NFL, NBA, MLB, and most recently, Horse Racing. In 2016 Matchbook became an Authorised Betting Partner in support of British Horse Racing.

Committed to improving each individual’s betting experience, Matchbook helps bettors make smarter, more informed bets, by providing educational tools such as Matchbook Insights, the Matchbook Betting Podcast and the Matchbook Traders Conference.

Matchbook is licensed and regulated by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission and the UK Gambling Commission.

The Voices Of The Matchbook Betting Podcast

Jesse May

Jesse is the resident Matchbook big bet expert, providing odds and data from the exchange, a running tally of bets, an unnerving enthusiasm for winning bets and some bizarre pronunciations. Aside from his work with Matchbook, Jesse is one of the foremost gambling writers and broadcasters in the world and is perhaps most famously known as the voice of poker.

Neil Channing

Neil is one of Britain’s best known and most successful professional gamblers, and a man who is never afraid to give a (very entertaining) long answer to a short question. A mix of old-school gambler and new-school statshound, he spends hours pouring over data and form to find nuggets of value in any and every sport. Neil co-founded the Betting Emporium.com where he focuses on racing, NFL and anywhere he can nick a bit of value.

Brad Allen

Brad covers the gambling industry for trade rag EGR, but is never happier than when hunting for value on US sports markets where he takes a data-led approach to finding the best bets on the NFL, MLB, NBA, UFC and any other three letter acronym you want to throw at him. He specialises in even money player and team handicap markets but has been known to throw up a hail mary every now and again.

Stephen Harris

Stephen Harris is the Podcast’s resident horse racing expert. With over 20 years of industry experience as an on-course bookmaker, trader at Sporting Index and UKbetting, as well as a professional punter, when he speaks about horses even Jesse and Neil stop talking to listen. He’s also the resident tipster on bettingexpert.com and is one of the sharpest minds in the game, digging out value for listeners every week.

Mark O'Haire

Mark is a stats-led football betting analyst who isn’t afraid to go on an epic data dive to find out how to make money from a wet night at Sunderland. A freelance football writer he also runs the welovebetting.co.uk website and can regularly be found posting tips on all the top leagues in Europe.
