I wrote last week about the number of non-runners and abandonments and how this can have an impact on our betting. Although the last few days have been better, there’s still been a number of non-runners. Looking at the market later in the morning is certainly an advantage at this time of the year!
Talking of markets, that what I wanted to look at today. We should always be looking at the market when making a decision on what to bet on. Oddschecker and At The Races are great comparison sites and give us an insight into what other punters are up to.
Once we have our selection process and bank sorted one of the next important things is getting the best price.
When betting I always explain to people the importance of getting the right odds for their bet.
We need to have as many bookmaker accounts as possible and use the exchanges as well.
As early as possible I will then spread my bets around the bookmaker accounts as this is where I can get best odds guaranteed on the shorter priced bets. For longer priced horses, I will then put a bet on one of the exchanges to get matched. I can usually get much better prices on the long shots. I have often got matched at 25/1 on a horse that is 16’s with the bookmakers.
By being more thorough with our approach to betting and getting on at the right odds we can massively increase our profits.
The Turbo winning system has two selections, today. Beach Break in the 12:50 Catterick being one of them. It’s best priced 9/2 with all the bookies at the time of writing but can be backed at 6/1 on the exchanges. It’s fancied and will more than likely go off shorter. I would much prefer to take 6/1 about a horse that will likely go off at 4/1 or shorter.
Make sure you shop around and ALWAYS take the best price you can, especially on those that are fancied in the market.
