Betting Guide

Welcome to The Big Australian Punter website. For those first time visitors and regulars who are still trying to work out what the heck we are on about, we are a sports orientated guide built to provide sharp analysis, latest news and information on racing, sports and the big events. As well as this we attempt to entertain our regulars through blogs, forums, tipping competitions and more.

One of our more sharper tools in the shed is our Racing Analyst: Tim McDonnell. He provides us with his weekly analysis on the Melbourne and Sydney racing scene, breaking down each race and providing us with his selections as well as thoughts on race speed. You can catch his weekly column by clicking here and if you want to know if he's any good, we've reviewed his work and the results are here to view

Tim has compiled an e-book titling Modern Day Professional Punting and for those interested please read on..

Why Modern Horse Racing Requires a New Betting Approach

For the serious punter, there are many factors to consider when we are making a bet. Form, track bias, and race positioning all play their part, but it is often the internal factors - those within your own control - that can make the difference between winning or losing.

In my e-book Modern Day Professional Punting I share both the internal factors as well as the racing factors that have helped me become a more formidable punter.

Modern-day racing is a far cry from the racing we witnessed fifteen or even twenty years ago. The sport has become so professional that one must take a similar professional attitude in to the betting ring.

While the judgement of a horse's ability remains a major criteria for success. There are many “race specific” factors that one needs to consider to make any significant on-going profits. In this book I cover these areas in significant detail and provide principles and strategies to employ that will lead to success, they include:

  • Race positioning – this is of paramount importance and something I have studied over many years – I provide all my insights and strategies on all racing positions (leading, boxseating, racing off the rail) and the impact it is having on the modern race.
  • Track bias - what is it, how does it affect the race, and what betting opportunities develop because of it?
  • How to best use racing position strategy with the betting types available?
  • How to best relate and profit from these race specific factors to our punting and bookmaking?


And that's just the racing...

Do we know what type of bet we should place for maximum winnings - and why?

When it comes to betting, we also need to consider:

  • When is it better to bet for the win, the place and/or eachway?
  • How much, and when, should we play the exotics (Trifecta's, Quinella's, etc.)?
  • The revolution of punters playing bookmaker is here and we should take advantage- all my strategies on successful laying are here.
  • What betting options are available?
  • Who has best odds and how do we get them?


This is a very important part of punting, in my book I have outlined the best times to use certain bet types and have provided detail explanations on why these approaches work. Much is based on my working theories of modern racing and should be studied carefully. 

Modern Day Professional Punting , is the compilation of my many years of observation, study, and experience in punting on horse racing. It puts into words all of my strategies that I use to maintain success; as well as outlining a few vital tricks for you to use for betting on modern horse racing.

I have explained in clear detail my approach to many issues that must be considered, as well as providing you with very clear solutions. This book contains everything - all of my secrets gathered over years of experience.

After reading this book, if not already hopefully you will be better equipped in the following areas:

  1. How you can get more out of yourself as a punter.
  2. How to use the concepts of honesty and confidence to see amazing changes in your betting results.
  3. Some of the mistakes us punters make and the easy steps you can take to avoid them.
  4. How to critically evaluate a field and develop a strategy based on your own confidence.
  5. How race positioning has become of paramount importance - where you want your horse to race, and how this affects your betting strategy and confidence.
  6. Track bias - what it is and how to use this to your advantage in the betting ring.
  7. What type of bet you should make and when and when to make it for maximum returns.
  8. What things to look for in becoming a successful bookmaker as well.

I'll also give you working examples from some of the biggest races in recent Australian racing history, which have been used to provide you with an even clearer understanding and strategies and how they are applicable.These are vital lessons to learn, and I will show you how you can use this advice to profit on racing.

"I used to go to the track with a goal in mind - something like 'I want to win $500 today'. Unfortunately this wasn't often how I left the track!. It was only after reading your book that the penny finally dropped. This book really opened my eyes and made me think a little clearer, especially your section on using a confidence rating. Best of all, I am seeing the results in my TAB account."
