Betting each way is a great way to make our money go further when investing on the horses. If we know what we’re doing we can find value selections that have an extremely high strike rate when placing our bets, that gives us either most of our stake back, break even or even a big profit.
Finding value selections in betting is a topic that is talked about a lot between professionals and novices alike. It’s not always about finding the winner of a race but more about finding a horse that has been overlooked in the market by the bookmaker and in the long term we can profit from these discrepancies if we know what we’re looking for.
I have put together one of the best ways to find this value and how best to use it.
This method can be used at any time on the day of racing but your results will be even more accurate if you can do the analysis within 30 minutes before the off.
So let’s get stuck in and look at how we can profit from value each way betting.
Below you will find the 2 simple steps to finding the qualifying races each day.
- We only use handicap races
- We look for odds-on favourites
Once we have looked at these 2 simple rules we will have a list of potential races that will show us qualifying horses.
Today’s races are 3:45 Fontwell and the 6:30 Chelmsford.
We simply back the second favourite in these races. If you can find two races like this on a daily basis, then we put them into an each way double. Of course, they won’t always come in but even if they place, we’ll make a small profit from our each way bet. If they both win, then we make a tidy profit.
These are the qualifying horses, for today –
3:45 Fontwell – Tactical Manoeuvre
6:30 Chelmsford – Thahab Ifraj
Staking a 1 point each way double for a 2 point bet would make us 3 point profit if they both place, which is what the market is suggesting and if they both win, then we will see a whopping 45 points profit. This type of gain is what makes these bets worthwhile doing and will pay dividends in the long run.
Have a play around and make sure you paper trade initially but in the long run, these bets work out really well.
