Horse Racing Betting Tips

When most people think about betting, the first sport that enters their head tends to be horse racing – and the online bookmakers offer a vast range of markets to choose from.

Horse racing is staged all over the world, on every continent, and most bookmakers will allow you the chance to bet on a race at just about any time in a 24-hour period – whether it’s in Europe, America, Australia or South Africa to name just a few places. This can be on your PC, tablet or mobile device.

There are betting customers winning at big odds every week, and many punters enjoy accumulator bets with the potential to get a large return from a small stake. And even if you back just a single horse to win you can make a lot of money in just the few minutes it takes to run a race. The most famous horse race in the world, the Aintree Grand National, was won in 2013 by 66/1 chance Auroras Encore.

You have the opportunity to bet win or each-way on horse racing and when you visit an online bookmaker, they will often give you more favourable place terms than if you had visited one of their shops. For example, in the Grand National some firms were paying out on the first six places whereas shop customers would get just four. A £5 each way bet on Auroras Encore at 66/1 would have returned £422.50.

However, those who bet on horse racing online can often help themselves to bigger odds than the starting price. Most bookmakers offer Best Odds Guaranteed, which means if you take a price before the race and your horse drifts out to a bigger S.P. you will still be paid out at the greater odds.

When you have placed your bet, you will usually then have the chance to watch the race at that bookmaker’s website via their live streaming service.

Make sure you visit on a regular basis to get daily horse racing tips, with in-depth previews written to help shape your betting decisions.
