Emmet is a broadcaster who presents the weekly horse racing show 'The Final Furlong Podcast' for At The Races as well as being a presenter on 96FM, a radio station in Cork, Ireland. He’s the glue that holds the Matchbook podcast together and bravely tries to marshal our mix of outspoken experts into some form of agreement on the week’s best bets. Usually he succeeds.
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 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.
Nigel is our resident football betting expert and fan of a “working man’s price” with a knack for finding great bets on the big games as well as providing real insight into tennis and darts markets. An ex-trader he’s now turning the tables on the bookies and using his knowledge to help out punters both at Matchbook and at the Betting Emporium.
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 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 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.

He started trading in 2004 and is now one of the foremost experts on exchange trading using Bet Tornado.
