Welcome aboard Trev’s Bets!
These bets are produced by Trevor Lawson, a professional punter with a highly successful record on Victorian racing over the past 15 years.
The package covers all meetings at metro Melbourne tracks:
As well as any meetings classified as ‘metro’ at other Victorian tracks.
For clarity, all Victorian meetings are shown at this calendar and any meeting marked in blue is a metro meeting:
WHEN & WHERE
Trevor will send a list of bets right on 9.15am on the day of the meeting – Victorian minimum price rules kick in at 9am.
To get the most value out of these bets, you should be logged in to your betting accounts and ready to go at 9.15am.
You should also download our app (directly from the App store, or via this link for Android) to get push notifications for all updates.
HOW TO USE
Each of Trevor’s Bets will include the race, number and runner, a recommended stake, and direction on price.
Directions on price are as follows:
– “Take down to” – the market price is currently over the rated price – you can bet these tips at any price down to that advised.
– “Take better than” – the market price is currently at or above the rated price – you should only bet these tips at or above that advised.
Each bet advised will include a recommended stake in units. 1u = 1% of your betting bank, so simply divide the amount of money you have set aside for punting by 100. Eg. if your bank is $10,000 then 1 unit = $100.
WHO TO BET WITH
To get the best available odds on Early Bets, it’s best to have a number of accounts and use an Odds Comparison site like Dynamic Odds so you can see all the tote, bookmaker and Betfair odds on one screen. The Victorian minimum bet laws ensure bookmakers must take all fixed odds bets to lose $2000 from 9am on the day of the meeting.
For example, at odds of $2 they have to take a bet of $1000.
WHEN TO BET
Bets advised with a “take down to” price are already an overlay on the market, so can be bet at any time down to the nominated price. Betfair / Top Fluc / Top Tote can also be an option here.
Those with a “take better than” price are generally an underlay on the market, so should be monitored and only bet when the nominated price is available.
