Ahhh the good old days.
Everybody loves reminiscing, and punters are definitely no exception.
Remember? Before all these bloody corporate bookies took over? You could go along to the track and deal with a huge ring of real bookies who’d actually take your bets? That was real punting.
Well sure, times have changed… but there are things you can do to recreate the glory days in a more modern form.
In terms of getting on… unless you’re a mammoth punter, you should now be okay in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, with the introduction of sorely-needed minimum bet rules. And the other states won’t be far away in following.
So you can get on, and let’s face it: it’s not all bad news. Thanks to technology it’s much easier to get a bet on these days, whether you’re at the track or anywhere else.
But the final piece of the puzzle? The betting ring itself.
You’d be doing yourself a huge disservice if you only dealt with one bookie and bypassed others even when they had superior odds. Why leave money on the table?
Thankfully, because of odds comparison, you can recreate the old-school betting ring easily. It’s already been done for you.
Any corporate bookie obviously only wants you to deal with them, and them only. They want all of your action so that you never go to their competitors. That’s why they have so many bonuses, extras like live vision, and offer markets on everything from racing, to footy, to who’ll score the seventh point of the second half in a Slovenian Division 2 handball match.
You’ll never need to go to another bookie!
Thankfully, we’re a little smarter than that… the best price is all that matters. And that’s where odds comparison comes in.
All bookies, all lined up side-by-side in the one place. Just pick your mark and hit the button.
Our Victorian analyst and professional punter Trevor Lawson has been betting professionally for over fifteen years, and as he says: the betting ring has simply moved online (though yes, it’s more anonymous – it was an advantage to be able to see who was backing what!).
There’s a few options around, and Champion Bets now offers Odds Comparison too: absolutely free. Access it here, or go through the option on the menu at the top of the page.
All races, for all three codes, are available every day. You can see all bookies across the page and simply select the one with the best price. There is also a column which displays the DataBase Ratings for every Australian meeting and they’ve proven to be a good head-start on the form and the source for some decent overlays.
And best of all, it works on mobile too… so you can use it anywhere.
All you need to do is make sure you have accounts available at all of the bookies so you can use them all: click here to join the bookies if you don’t.
