Greyhound Racing Betting Markets
Greyhound Racing is a huge global betting phenomenon with major greyhound race meetings almost every week of the year with live greyhound racing from the UK, Ireland, America, Australia & New Zealand plus more from all around the world. Most major greyhound racing betting sites offer many betting markets on a single race. But what do all these betting markets mean? Here’s a simple explanation of the most popular greyhound racing betting markets:
Win / Fixed Odds / Single – This is the simplest and most common greyhound racing bet. You are backing the winner of the race. All of you bet is placed on the winner.
Each Way – This is a popular bet at greyhound race meetings whereby if you’re not entirely sure you choice will win outright you get a payout if the greyhound is placed. Your bet is placed in two parts, one towards the win and the second part to the place.
So for example if you place a £10 each way bet at 10/1 (11) the actual bet is £20, £10 for the win at 10/1 and £10 for the place at ¼ of the odds. If the greyhound wins you would get £100 for the win return plus £25 for the place return plus your initial stake so total return would be £145.
The number of places paid depends on the number of runners in a race.
Forecast / Straight Forecast / Exact Forecast – This bet is where you predict the exact order two greyhounds will finish a race, 1st and 2nd. The returns are calculated by multiplying the 1st bet plus returns with the 2nd bet plus returns.
So for example if you place a £10 forecast on a greyhound A at 5/1 (6) coming first and a greyhound B coming second at 10/1 (11) your return would be £660 if the greyhounds finished 1st and 2nd in that order.
Reverse Forecast / Combination Forecast – Same as a Forecast bet but you reverse the outcome so greyhound A and greyhound B can come 1st or 2nd in any order. Your bet is doubled so the out lay using the above example would cost you £20. £10 for A B and £10 for B A.
Tricast – Same as Forecast but with 3 greyhounds predicting 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Obviously the return with this bet are huge.
Accumulator – Predicting which greyhound will win a selection of races. The selection can be at another race meeting and on another day. You can bet each way as well.
