The first instalment of the SBC Podcast in 2023 is now available and it features a returning guest for the very first time in Quentin Franks.

  • Quentin’s experience with specific independent bookmakers and why being limited by Oddschecker firms is not the end of the world for getting bets down

New SBC Podcast with professional racing punter & tipster, Quentin Franks

The very latest SBC Podcast has just been published featuring my chat with top racing expert and tipster, Quentin Franks.

Working 15 hour days and up at the crack of drawn each day, Quentin was good enough to share about what goes on behind the scenes as a pro punter and the reality of betting for a living – something he has been doing for the past 10 years.

As well as some of the things he looks for in a value bet and the tools he used to study horses, Quentin also discussed some of the smaller, independent bookmakers he often uses to get bets on and why more punters need to consider them.

He also outlines just why these firms welcome his business alongside his thoughts on the racing scene in general and his fears for it in the long-term.

We also explore his long-running SBC Hall of Fame rated tipping service which is now in its 8th year, during which time it has generated a 15% long-term ROI from over 8000 bets.
