How does betting on greyhounds work?
Whether you’re running the mince pies over the ante-post odds for the English Derby or the next race off at Perry Barr, betting on greyhounds has a brilliantly simply objective – back the winner.
However, greyhound betting odds don’t begin and end with putting money on the first past the post.
Each-way betting on greyhounds
Despite fields usually being made up of six dogs, each-way betting is still very much a viable approach in greyhound betting.
Backing a greyhound with, for example, £10 each-way, means your total stake is £20. Of that amount, £10 is bet on the dog to win and £10 is bet on the dog to place (finish in the first two) at a quarter of the win odds.
Betting on greyhounds in this manner is a good ploy for a brace of reasons.
It’s a good way to back a long-odds underdog and potentially make some money if it can sneak a place. Equally it’s a way of potentially limiting your losses if you’re fancied greyhound doesn’t win, but still makes the first two.
Greyhounds betting forecasts, reverse forecasts, tricasts and combination tricasts
Betting on greyhounds, with its stable field sizes, is brilliant for fans of forecasts, reverse forecasts, tricasts and combination tricasts.
These are greyhounds bets that require bettors to predict the first two or three dogs past the post in one way or another, with nice pay-outs for those who succeed.
Forecasts require the selection of the first two home in the correct order, while tricasts ask bettors to nail the 1-2-3 in the order they pass the line. Each requires just one bet.
Reverse forecasts and combination tricasts require more bets to be placed, but afford a greater likelihood of success as a result. This is because they pay out if you select the first two or first three home regardless of which order the greyhounds cross the line.
In greyhounds betting, a reverse forecast is two separate bets. For example a 50p reverse forecast costs £1, with 50p wagered on the two different finishing orders possible.
A combination tricast is six bets, covering each of the ways the three dogs selected can come home.
Betting on greyhounds tips
How to win betting on greyhounds? The eternal question has no simple answer, but read on for some observations about how to give yourself the best chance of winning at greyhound betting.
Study the form
As mentioned above, the Racing Post is an invaluable resource and the information they provide (available on williamhill.com) in terms of a greyhound’s past form provides countless clues.
Find out the speed of their recent runs over the trip relative to their opponents, whether they’re stepping up a level in race category terms, whether they encountered trouble in running last time out or whether they’re capable of pinging the lids and getting on the bunny early.
Know your trainers
Keeping an eye on the exploits of the game’s leading kennels is vital, particularly when it comes to ante-post betting on the biggest contests in greyhound racing.
Henlow-based handler Mark Wallis may be into the double digits when it comes to Greyhound Trainer of the Year wins, but that doesn’t mean he’s your go to guy in the Derby. Wallis has found most success over the longer trip of the St Leger, winning it five times.
For many years the derby was the playground of legendary trainer Charlie Lister, who won both the English and Scottish versions of the race seven times retired from the game in 2018.
However, Yorkshireman Lister retired from the game in 2018, handing over his kennels and licence to his head man Chris Akers. Watching how Akers goes about continuing Lister’s heroics in the years to come is going to be fascinating for those interested in greyhounds betting.
Continuing the tale of sorcerers and apprentices, Wallis’ former assistant Patrick Janssens is now flying high in the training ranks, making his dogs well worth looking out for in the greyhounds betting, wherever they turn up.
Not bad for a man who briefly left the sport to become a painter and decorator back in 2012.
