The industry’s best analysts

Thriving in the volatile Australian betting industry is no easy feat, but at Champion Bets we’ve successfully met that challenge since 2006. We’re proud to have produced consistent high-quality results over a huge volume of bets while building a strong community of more than 26,000 horse racing and sports betting fans.

Mark Rhoden

Mark spent 17 years with IASBet and Sportsbet where he was Head Trader for NSW Racing. He is a highly respected full time professional punter who focuses solely on NSW Metropolitan & Provincial racing.

Trevor Lawson

Trevor Lawson is a full-time professional punter who has been betting on Victorian racing for over 15 years. A former professional golfer, Trevor initially took up betting as a way to supplement his income, before moving into it full-time in the early 2000s. Since then, Trevor has survived and thrived in one of Australia’s most competitive betting markets, and continues to operate as a winning professional punter.

The Professor

The Professor is a very successful punter with a long-term track record of winning. Like most of our team, he specialises in one state.

Because of his position in the industry he’s not able to disclose his full identity, but we caught up with him prior to launching to shed some light on what you can expect from him.

We have a premium membership for everyone!

Andrew

A highly-trained data scientist, Andrew is the brains behind our very popular DataBase Ratings – the free resource which is used on a daily basis by hundreds of punters and form analysts looking for an extra edge.

Andrew was a keen recreational punter with a professional background in IT and data science. The two interests didn’t meet until a job opportunity with a bookmaker presented itself, which gave him the opportunity to see how things are done on the other side. Andrew’s job was to build models that could price racing markets quickly and accurately, and the lessons learned would stick with him.

Through industry contacts, Andrew was then able to work closely with a very high-volume private punting operation, where he learnt the principles of bet selection and how to obtain the best price.

Andrew’s experiences with both bookmakers and professional punters have given him a wide view of all angles of racing and betting, and his data science skills have allowed him to build a model that has proven profitable over the long-term.

Scott Kellen

As one of the USA’s most experienced and profitable NFL betting experts, Scott Kellen is regularly featured on ESPN1100 Las Vegas and the Vegas Stats & Information Network (VSiN) during the football season.

Unlike many pro bettors in the US, Scott is focused entirely on what he knows best: the NFL. Highly respected by Las Vegas and international sportsbooks, Scott’s profitable record over 17 NFL seasons has made him one of the country’s foremost authorities on NFL betting.

Brett's Betting Syndicate

Brett has built several advanced sports betting solutions, utilising his own data science skills and building a talented team in order to find as big an edge as possible on sports betting markets. Brett’s syndicate now produces profitable analysis and betting solutions across many sports and leagues, including the AFL, NRL, NBA and NFL. The volume of their analysis has seen the syndicate produce multiple profitable betting services for Champion Bets members over a number of years.

Mark Van Triet

Mark Van Triet has spent his career in racing. Following stints with Racing Australia and Lee Freedman Racing, Mark has spent over a decade as the jockey manager for some of Australia’s top riders including Damien Oliver, Brenton Avdulla, Glyn Schofield and Chad Schofield.

As a jockey manager, Mark’s form analysis has to be razor-sharp to ensure his riders are on the best chances – and then take full advantage of those opportunities.

Punting-wise, Mark focuses on the other side of the country. By concentrating his betting efforts on the relatively isolated WA racing scene, Mark has developed an in-depth knowledge of the tracks and horse population in the west.

Steve Green

Steve has worked for international and local bookmaking firms before developing his own statistical database and player rating system which achieved very good results. He analyses player, team, referee and weather statistics to help identify the best bets each week. But Steve isn’t just a number cruncher, he takes notes while watching every second of every single game and relies on both knowledge and hard work to spot angles that other punters miss.

Dean Evans

For a number of years now, Dean has shown an amazing ability to find horses with above average ability purely from barrier trials. He has developed and fine-tuned a revolutionary approach to an area of form assessment that many punters either ignore or under-value. Many have tried to copy his approach, but no-one has come close to matching Dean’s record of better than 10% profit on turnover from close to 10,000 bets.

Rod

Rod is a professional punter with a focus on the mathematics of betting and a sharp eye for value. Bookie promotions and special offers have long been a means for bookies to lure in mug punters. Rod has utilised the undeniable value in these offers and taken it to a new level.

The Syndicate

Our analysts source excellent form and track going information and combine that with strong stable mail gained from managing horses, syndicates and owners’ bookings. Custom ratings are blended with an intimate knowledge of stables, horses and conditions to make for a powerfully profitable formula.

Ryan's Betting Syndicate

Ryan and his data science team have analysed millions of data points to develop a number of models that create and optimise baseball predictions. They believe in their algorithms and track performance daily to re-train their models and improve their predictive ability. Analytics, data, and information from multiple sources is aggregated and the result is a proprietary blend giving a significant statistical edge over analytic-only services.

The overall strategy is designed to yield returns over the course of a regular season. 2018 was exceptional with 15% profit on turnover on the main head-to-head market.

Cameron O'Brien

Cameron O’Brien has been producing weight ratings since the age of 15, learning the Don Scott method and then continually refining his own approach to doing the form over time. Cameron trained as a form analyst under legendary bookmaker Mark Read and has now been a professional punter for more than 10 years. He focuses on standout selections in VIC, QLD and WA racing.

Golf Insider

Hailing from England, the Golf Insider has been advising his bets to British clients since 2014. The Poms have been benefiting from his knowledge and making huge profits ever since. Now, for the first time, his service is available to Australian members via Champion Bets.

A golf expert with his own proprietory model (which he calls “the value machine”), the Golf Insider is also a senior member of the bookmaking industry in the UK – which is why he doesn’t reveal his identity. Betting weekly into the US and European tours as well as all majors, the Golf Insider’s profitable record is second-to-none.
