Punter's Platform

    The Punters Platform is a decent podcast, worth subscribing to. The host is Johnny Ward, who you might remember of the steak dinners and jacuzzis story that became infamous on the Betfair forum.

    They do put out a lot of mug bets, though two of them did pick Brooks Koepka for the US Open. Having said that except for one plum the record is not close to being on a par with Jennings and I'd also forgive them because the show is a discussion show and the point is not to tip, as such. All the same it's a poor record, especially given the tendency to go for favs or short ones or (mug) multiples. Their Soundcloud page will have the full identities, I've used initials.

    Judge for yourself, I've been keeping track of their bets of the week going back to May (yes, I am that sad).
