is voted SBC 'Best Betting Website 2023' *and* SBC 'Best Betting Data Resource 2023'

Geegeez Wins… Again Again Again!

It's awards season again and, for the... checks notes... sixth time in seven years, has been voted 'Best Betting Website'. As well as that, the site has been voted 'Best Betting Data Resource', and chief writer and site owner Matt Bisogno was chosen as 'Best Betting Writer'.

The SBC Awards have been running for more than a decade and, as an independent barometer of the betting public, they are highly anticipated. As such, everyone at is delighted to regain the Best Betting Website award after slipping to second, a nose behind Oddschecker, last year. That was the only blip in a run of Gold medals stretching all the way back to 2017, and we're thrilled that the public vote has restored us to the top of the pile.

In fact, polled almost a quarter of all votes, with Oddschecker a fairly distant second, collecting 14% of votes cast. The high profile trio of, and were in a photo for third place, edged by the first named.

"Matt Bisogno and his team have been consistent podium finishers in past SBC Awards and some additions to their service over the last year appear to have been very popular, restoring them to a position that they held for five consecutive years prior to 2022."


The Best Betting Data Resource award is a newer category, introduced only last year. scooped that inaugural running, and we extended our advantage this time around, polling a whopping 30% of the votes cast. In second place was, who received a very respectable 24% of votes, with no other site securing more than 7% of the total votes.


Geegeez is a serial SBC Award winner


Whilst offers a huge amount of free editorial and deep dive analytical content for UK and Irish racing fans, our premium product is Geegeez Gold, which is a horseracing betting data resource; so it's extremely heartening to know that you value the service we provide so highly - thank you.

Here's Pete Ling again:

"GeeGeez’s popularity with punters was confirmed in the ‘Best Betting Data Resource’ category as they also clinched this title, thus securing themselves a well-earned double with just over 30% of the vote."

And finally, in the Best Betting Writer category, Matt Bisogno was a short head winner in an excellent field, with Kevin Blake a close second, and notables such as Simon Nott, Lydia Hislop, Tony Calvin and Simon Rowlands also in the line up.

On hearing the news, Matt said, "I'm absolutely thrilled that has won the two main website awards - for the first time, both together - and that so many members of the betting public put us at the head of their lists. Regarding the writer award, that's a huge surprise and probably not justified on recent scarce evidence; perhaps I built up enough of a lead late last year when a good bit more prolific with my contributions, to nick this race from the front. It's a pleasure and no small honour to be in the same list as some of those other names, many of whose work I read religiously. Thank you to everyone who voted for in these awards - it means an awful lot to all of us."

Bisogno continued,

" is a team game, with what we offer only possible through the continual hard work of 'vice-captain' Chris; techie gurus Nige, Dave M, Tom, and Andrey; analysts and scribblers Dave Renham, David Massey, and Tony Stafford; and some great raw data sourced from the likes of Racing Post, TPD, Press Association, the BHA, Goalserve and Peter May - over which we sprinkle our 'magic dust'. There are a lot of moving parts and we're lucky enough to have many skilled hands to make relatively light work of most of the challenges we face. We've a lot more planned for the second half of 2023, so stay tuned!"

      Haha, thanks Andrew, very kind.

      No massive City party nor Jack Grealish antics, though we’ll all have a quiet glass and think how lucky we are to be a part of this project.
