Best Sports & Football Podcast

Welcome to the Three Pints Podcast — a sports wagering podcast where we share a beer (or three) and chat about the latest weekly goings-on in the world of footie and betting.

Listen as we dive into the psyche of the modern day sports fan through the medium of snacks, berate each over other topics that most would dare not discuss even on the weekend and occasionally get round to talking about something serious, or at least sport-related!

But don’t bank on any of the above happening in an orderly fashion — there’s a good chance we might be under the influence when you tune in and listen…

Sports Betting Podcast: The Drinkers

Ashley Hughes

Ashley is the master of knocking back beverages. He’s arguably the best in the business. But this wasn’t always the case. He started off as a humble four-pinter, calling it a day at 11pm, content with grabbing a chicken burger on the way home. It was the best of times, but also the worst of times, especially as back then he had no English football betting podcast to star in.

It was only until university came along, and a single fateful night with Fireball whiskey, when his life truly changed. Caught in a whirlwind of pale ales, scotch whiskies, sourz shots and the occasional glass of wine, his drinking stamina grew as quickly as his hair and his waistline. Somehow though, amidst all the booze-generated haze of his existence, he managed to forge a career in writing — eventually winding up working on Betting.co.uk. And now, with hard-fought funding from our landlords, he is also the producer of The Three Pints – a sports wagering podcast of true character and distinction.

When he’s not drinking or podcasting, Ashley is trying to paint (pictures rather than houses, though he’s open to offers). He also spends much of his time these days justifying his creatively long hair to his friends and family, usually by painting or occasionally by playing the piano. He’s from Manchester but supports Liverpool, something which might actually contravene local laws at the Mancunian end of the East Lancs Road. He also takes a somewhat keen interest in horse racing. And that’s really it, apart from this footie podcast for UK punters that he started not so long ago, of course…

Nick Smith

Nick appears to be a refined man. A man who enjoys simplicity combined with elegance. Of course, when it comes to alcohol, these two abstracts are often neglected. He is considered (mainly by himself) to be a master manipulator of the single malt, an occasional avid arbiter of an aperitif and, when he’s feeling especially on form, a sanctimonious seeker of a superior spiced rum. All of that may sound impressive. All it really means, of course, is that he has a basic understanding of alliteration, a moderately large vocabulary, and he can no longer sup vast quantities of cheap lager like he used to. This latter trait continues to be a source of shame both to him and his peers. He is still unsure how he landed a role on a football betting podcast fuelled by booze but is very willing to go with the proverbial flow (of rum).

When he isn’t failing to keep up with the consumption of his boozy compadres, you can find Nick declaring his love for left-wing politics on Twitter or playing FIFA (2016 div. 2 Seasons champion, and the proud manager of a 94 rated career-mode Danny Ings). Both of those things, though, are mere distractions from his true passion: Shakespearian trivia. Nick was once ranked third in the world in the Shakespeare category on the ever-popular mobile trivia amusement Quiz Up! He also likes to apply unsuccessfully for The Chase (seriously now Brad, he’s tried four times).

Frankly, you’d think that with his humble demeanour and razor-sharp wit he’d be famous already. An avid Leeds United fan and a keen follower of the NFL, he also enjoys trying to read, write and make his fortune in rather arbitrary ways.

Jordan Sims

Jordan likes to think he’s the creative type, but truth be told he’s a Yorkshireman at heart. Yorkshire folk tend to enjoy the simple pleasures – things like a warm bed, food on the table, and KES on a constant loop on the living room telly. It’s rarely warm in Yorkshire, even in bed, and he hates KES like Sheffield hates Leeds – although you can’t say he doesn’t eat well, not since he invented the Yorkshire pudding sandwich anyway.

As for his drinking habits… well, they’re more like a Shakespearian tragedy these days. His love affair with the cheapest lager to hand ended not so long ago in a cluster of head-splitting hangovers and blurry visions of nights swilled away in a sea of Fosters. If you can believe it, he now considers himself more of a wine drinker (with some exceptions). Don’t tell his family that! They’d trek across the Pennines to hold an intervention if they knew, even though he’s now appearing on the most entertaining footie podcast in the UK.

He’s a writer by trade, although exactly what he writes is hard to pin down. This, that and sometimes the other is as good a description as any. It’s a list that includes podcast bios, angry reviews of Uber Eats and shopping lists (although he’s never really got the hang of the last one). Like all 90s kids, he knows all 150 original Pokemon, reluctantly went to see Busted with his mum not so long ago, and has a deep desire to see Ant & Dec run the country. He’s a massive Liverpool fan, you know, the CHAMPIONS OF EVERYTHING, but even more of a fan of sitting round with his mates eating crisps and knocking back booze. Well… maybe…

The Best Football Podcast on Spotify

What you’ve got to look forward to:

Pub Quiz

We all love a pub quiz. There’s nothing like winning one. It’s that glorious feeling you get when you beat a bunch of middle-aged drunks on their own turf. Each week in the best footie podcast in the UK, we test two of our three lads’ knowledge while you listen in from wherever you are in the world. In the end, we’ll learn whose got the greatest grasp of sporting trivia but whether they’re really the cleverest is another question. We’ll leave finding the answer to that to you, our listeners…

Desert Island Crisps

Ever wondered what a famous celebrity’s favourite maize or potato-based snack is? Curious as to which three bags they would take with them if stranded on a desert island? Does anybody really need to know this? Probably not, but we don’t care. Our in-house expert Mr. Crunch, alongside cutting questions from your co-hosts, will dive deep into the psyche of our special guest, or at least the bit of it expressed by their favourite bag of crisps. Whether you like the solidly traditional virtues of Walkers ready salted, you’re more of a chunky McCoy’s salt and vinegar type, or you prefer some pickled onion Monster Munch to soak up your ale, you’ll enjoy this part of our sports betting podcast when you tune in and listen to our discussions!

Big Talk:

We love to debate the really big topics (apart from booze and crisps) making this one of the most engaging betting podcasts out there! And that’s why each week the guys will bring in a YouTube clip special to them to listen to, to hopefully spark some discussion and leave you with some actionable betting tips to perfect your gameplay. These clips can cover almost anything from the wide ranging world of sport and betting tips, so you can expect that they will preview the quirky, the contentious and the comedic in this sports betting podcast, providing a nice contrast from your standard betting podcasts!

So Much More than Just another Football Podcast

betting podcast uk

It’s fair to say that Betting.co.uk’s Three Pints Podcast is much more than a mere football podcast on Spotify. But it’s the epic football leagues that dominate the discussion, as you might expect from a show that centres on that other great British institution – the pub! Football attracts much of the betting action in the UK and further afield, so it’s no wonder that it becomes the topic of discussion so often in the barroom at the Three Pints.

On this football podcast one Spotify can expect to hear plenty about the Premier League, and where you can find the best betting odds and for the upcoming contests and sports league events as well as some actionable tips and tricks to make this one of the most varied betting podcasts out there. Our boys will try and not spend too much time discussing Leeds, Liverpool or what team Falstaff supported (we believe the big guy was an Aston Villa fan). They’ll debate anything and everything football betting-related, so expect the unexpected, along with a few classic football league clichés thrown in. If you’re looking for a footie league podcast UK punters can really enjoy, you might just have found it in the form of the Three Pints podcast.

You might even occasionally hear the conversation turn to exotic climes like Spain, Germany or even Scotland! Football betting is a complex and interesting tapestry of countries and leagues these days and the very best betting podcasts reflect this. Throw a global pandemic into the mix, and you might even hear our boys discuss places like Belarus and Azerbaijan, such are the strange days we have found ourselves dealing with in 2021. One thing is for certain, this is a football betting podcast like no other that's definitely worth a listen.

Listening to a sports betting podcast can help you sharpen up your own betting strategies too. While our experts may not be the most iconic sports pundits out there, they have plenty of great knowledge and tips acquired during long afternoons and evenings in the pub watching a match that they can share with our listeners from this most entertaining of betting podcasts. All those hours spent in analysis and lively discussion might just provide the type of insight you need to listen to on sports league updates, whether to build some winning accumulators or nail that outright wager on who might win the Premier League in yet another Covid-19 affected campaign. If they listen to this footie league betting podcast UK punters might just find the tip that turns their betting season into a success rather than an abject failure.

Darts, Snooker and…Fishing?

But it’s not just football that our own version of the Three Wise Men discuss. There is more to life than the Beautiful Game and gripping league matches, you know. As you might expect from three chaps who enjoy the pub so much on a weekly basis, darts is a game that is dear to their hearts. Their love of the ‘arrers means that you can expect scintillating discussion of matters such as whether Phil Taylor really was the greatest of all time, or whether that title should actually belong to Ray Barneveld. You might hear the merits of Michael van Gerwen discussed, and how he might fare if he comes up against Scotland’s Peter Wright (we still suspect Eric Bristow was better than any of those guys, though!).

Another pub game you can join in with and enjoy (sorry, serious competitive sport played by athletes in peak condition) is snooker. Our boys are fond of games played using cues, not least because we have a pool table lurking somewhere in the back of the Three Pints barroom and they like to show off their skills after a few shandies. In all seriousness, just for a second, snooker is a great game for punters to follow and listen to via a lively podcast. This sports betting podcast certainly does not neglect the game like some betting podcasts dp, and you can find plenty of discussion about the best players to currently grace the green baize table as well as some lesser known betting tips that you can put to good use. Ah, you can almost smell the chalk and hear the balls clicking and clacking as you listen to this show…sorry, what was that about it being a football betting podcast?

These three chaps even debate fishing. I bet not many of our Betting.co.uk readers knew that, yes, you can actually wager on competitive angling. So if you know your chub from your carp, and your roach from your bream, you might just want to give this sports betting podcast a listen! Whether our fellas will get round to discussing tales from the riverbank and who are the main runners and riders (or casters and catchers) in events like the Parkdean Festival or not remains to be seen, but you never know - anything can happen when you tune in and listen! This might just open up entire new avenues in your betting strategy. The Three Pints is much than just a football betting podcast, you know and provides a quirky spin on your traditional sports betting podcasts!

The Best Betting Podcast!

Of course, betting, just like listening to a football betting podcast, is supposed to be about entertainment. No one would do it or join in if it wasn’t about fun. It is important to remember this. None of us here at Betting.co.uk want to see anyone run into problems as a result of betting, so stay safe when it comes to things like walking away when things start to get fraught or stressed. As the ads say, when the fun stops, stop!

But fun is what you’ll definitely get if you tune into the Three Pints podcast. Whether you’re seeking the best football podcast UK punters can find (with some betting tips thrown in for good measure!) , or you just enjoy listening to three blokes talk about footie on a weekly basis, you’ll surely find something to enjoy. Subscribe today to the Three Pints podcast – you’ll thank us for it later!
