“Have you listened to Adam’s podcast yet?”

Reporting from Bet Chat HQ, north London…

Sunday is usually recommendation day here at the Bet Chat, but we’ve just noticed that a free podcast featuring our very own Adam Cheng has gone live!

Adam – if you didn’t already know – is our professional football bettor, who provides tips for the highly profitable Inside Man service…

The podcast is a fascinating look at his background and exactly how he decides what to bet on, and you can download and listen to it here.

September’s Fantasy Football winners

It’s also time to announce the winners of our September prizes for the Bet Chat Fantasy Football League…

First place and the winner of a one month free Inside Man subscription is Michael Philip’s Loose On Goose team.

Second place and the winner of £15 of Bet Chat credit is Alex Traynor’s Julio Geordio team.

Congrats Michael and Alex! To claim your prizes, please email clients@thebetchat.com.

That’s all from me today. Enjoy the podcast and have a splendid Tuesday evening!

Bet Chat recommends…

Everyone loves a recommendation don’t they? 

That’s why, in this Sunday series, Bet Chat Bec and I will be highlighting the very best stuff we’ve been consuming with our eyes and ears over the preceding seven days.

It also – shock horror – won’t be purely stuff about sport, betting and investing. After all, having other interests and being able to ‘switch off’ is very much a good thing.

So, without further ado, let’s get started…

First up this week is a soon to be released podcast series about one of the strangest stories in recent sporting history, involving a briefcase packed with $20million, a winner takes all tournament and a ‘businessman’ of questionable repute.

It’s called ‘Allen Stanford – The Man Who Bought Cricket’ and you can listen to the trailer here.

Allen Stanford (SPOILER ALERT) is now in prison, which is an apt segue into recommendation two, the newish BBC drama ‘Time’…

In this crackerjack of a mini series, Sean Bean plays a first time inmate and Stephen Graham plays a screw; what more could you want?!

You can watch it here.

And sticking with dramas and Stephen Graham, you should also check out ‘Help’ on All 4…

In addition to Graham, it stars the wonderful Jodie Comer and I thought it was excellent, even if it did leave Bet Chat Bec thoroughly depressed by the end credits.

Here’s the link.

Last and certainly not least for today is another shoutout to our excellent Racecracker service which is in superb form at the moment…

You can try it here and you really REALLY should!

So, without further ado, let’s get started…

Just the two recommendations this week but two with a strong link between them, even if you’ll think I’ve lost the plot initially.

First up is the new Netflix documentary, Turning Point, which explores terrorism and the response to terrorism post 9/11…

You can watch it here.

The second is Clive Jones’s Racecracker service which you can try here.

I did say you’ll think I’ve lost the plot but bear with me!

You see, what makes Turning Point interesting is how the documentary doesn’t just wallow in the devastation of terrorist attacks and tell us all about how awful the perpetrators are.

Both are of course entirely legitimate angles and certainly not ones I would disagree with, but what takes it to another level is how they look at the response to 9/11 and the mistakes that were made which, in many cases, rather than end terrorism have actually cultivated it.

And this isn’t anti American lefty liberal spiel either, it’s simply looking at how often highly emotional people (as they have every right to be after a terrorist attack) have a habit of making bad decisions.

All of which brings me to Racecracker which went live a few months ago and, after a good opening week, promptly ran into the worst run that Clive had experience in the three years of fine tuning the service…

Understandably many new members were less than impressed and many cancelled their subscriptions, but here’s the thing…

The run – while undeniably tough – didn’t break the betting bank (quite a way from it in fact), and the results since the lowest ebb?

More than 80 points profit, recouping all of the loss plus a decent wedge of overall profit on top.

The takeaways to all this are four-fold…

  1. Try not to make decisions when angry or highly emotional.
  2. If a service recommends a betting bank then you should be prepared to use that betting bank. If you’re not, you’d be better off not following the service to begin with.
  3. Give Racecracker a try by clicking this link.
  4. I’m not in any way making light of terrorism here. If you think I am, please read all the above again (oh and watch the Netflix series)!

And after that slightly ‘out there’ piece, I wish you good day.

“Like Father Christmas with a pint and a pool cue”

Reporting from Bet Chat HQ, north London…

It’s Friday and I’m feeling festive so I thought I’d treat you with an impromptu competition…

Up for grabs is a one month free subscription to the Bet Chat service of your choice, and to enter all you need to do is send the answer to the following question to clients@thebetchat.com:

Tomorrow I will be playing in the London Open pool competition. It’s a 128 man draw, but how far will I get (last 128, last 64, last 32, last 16, last 8, last 4, runner up or winner)?

HINT: I’ve played in the event on three previous occasions. On two I went out in the last 16, in the other I lost first round but to the eventual tournament winner.

In the event of a tie, Bet Chat Bec will spin around and around for 20 seconds, before selecting one of the correct entries at random.

And the winners don’t stop there…

It’s also about time that I revealed the winners of our Bet Chat Fantasy Football competition for August, so here goes…

First place and the winner of a one month free Inside Man subscription is David Fugill’s Hull City Rovers team.

Second place and the winner of £15 of Bet Chat credit is Brendan Jackson’s Rivlin team.

Congrats David and Brendan! To claim your prizes, please email clients@thebetchat.com.

And that’s just about that for today. I’m off to get my game face on ahead of tomorrow!

So, without further ado, let’s get started…

First up this week is the story of Emma Raducanu who, by the time you read this, may just be an 18 year old US Open champion. She also may not, but one thing she definitely is, is a British sporting revelation. You can read all about her rise here.

A one time female prodigy in the business world was Elizabeth Holmes, but then things went very badly wrong. You can listen to her fascinating story by downloading this podcast. 

Over in Netflix land, I’m about to get stuck into the latest series of Money Heist. It’s subtitled, but so what? Much more importantly, it’s great! You can watch it here.

But, you know what? I’ve saved the very best until last… That’s because we still have spaces available on Mel Gee’s Elite Racing service and, if you haven’t snapped one up yet, you really should!

Here’s the link you need.

That’s all for this week. Have a lovely Sunday.
