Horse Racing Betting Strategies and Tips

Never bet more than you can afford to lose. For example, instead of paying $2 for an Exacta bet that requires the horses to finish in an exact first and second place order, you can pay $4 for an Exacta Box bet, and you will win the Exacta bet regardless of which of the two horses comes in first.

Win Bet – A bet that the horse you chose will win the race.

Show Bet – A bet that the horse you chose will come in third (a show bet is also a winning bet if the horse you chose comes in first or second).

Place Bet – A bet that the horse you chose will come in second (a place bet is also a winning bet if the horse you chose comes in first).

To place a $2 Exacta Box bet on horse 2 and 5, you would say, “<Track Name>, $2 Exacta Box on Numbers 2 and 5″ (keep in mind that this is actually a $4 bet since you are boxing the bet).

Win, Place, and Show Bet (a.k.a. The point is to have fun, not to go home without money you need to pay your bills. At this point, some people like to spend some time on the paddock to see the horses being walked from the stable to the track, as it adds to the horse racing experience and occasionally one might notice something about a horse that influences the way they bet, such as a horse that appears sluggish or one that seems like it is in exceptional shape.

While there are a variety of bets, the following are the most common bets, and are more than enough for beginners. To keep things fun and not risk too much money, most beginners make $2 bets. Across The Board Bet) – Bets on the first, second, and third place finishers; each act as a separate bet.

The following is the correct way to place a bet with a betting clerk:

Trifecta Bet – A bet on the exact first, second, and third place finishers in exact order.

Once you have taken the time to look over the racing program and the professionals’ advice, it is time to start figuring out which bets you would like to place for the upcoming race.

Exacta Bet – A bet on the exact first and second place finishers in exact order.

To place a $2 Win bet on horse number 7, you would say, “<Track Name>, $2 to Win on Number 7″.

Box Bet – Any of the above bets can be boxed for an additional wager.

Daily Double Bet – A bet on the first place finishers in two consecutive races.

The reason why you need to start out with the <Track Name> is because you can bet on horse races at many tracks from the horse track you are currently at, so you need to specify the track to the betting clerk.

How the Sports Betting Line is Made by RJ Bell

There is a common misconception that point spreads represent the oddsmakers’ prediction of how many points the favorite will win by. Of course there is an entire method to the madness on how the opening line is created.

Individual books having players who consistently bet with certain tendencies (such as an extreme bias toward favorites or toward a certain popular team like USC)

Moving the line is the oddsmaker’s effort to balance betting action, and often times such moves can have a major impact on a bettor’s decision. For example, the public might have heavy betting interest week after week on a popular college football team such as USC. This usually includes having up-to-date power ratings on each team. Oddsmakers have to determine if any changes are necessary and send out an “adjusted line.”

What Is the Line Trying to Accomplish?

Power ratings are the oddsmaker’s value of each team and are used as a guide to calculate a “preliminary” pointspread on an upcoming game.

Las Vegas Sports Consultants (LVSC) is the world’s premier oddsmaking company and the most respected authority on making the lines.

Experts working for the individual books having a strong opinion on the game

“The main objective is that our clients get equal action on both sides,” Seba said. If an oddsmaker comes up with a preliminary line of USC -7, then an adjustment up to -7.5 or -8 would be made in response to the public’s expected USC bias. In doing so they attempt to make more attractive the team that is getting less action. That is not the case at all – their intent is NOT to evenly split the ATS result between the teams; rather, their goal is to attract equal betting action on both sides. “You either have a passion for it or you don’t,” Seba said. Obviously, if the line comes out a week ahead of the event (which is the case in football), there is much that could happen during the week leading up to the event that could affect the line. “We’re not trying to pick the team that covers the spread, we’re trying to make it a coin flip, a tough decision (for the bettor). In our extended interview, Seba explained that there are 4-5 oddsmakers assigned to make lines for each of the major sports (pro & college football and basketball; MLB, NHL, boxing, golf). By moving the line, sportsbooks can influence how the public bets on a particular game. If we’ve done that, we’ve done our job.”

How the Opening Line Is Made

Since the oddsmaker’s ultimate goal is equally dividing the betting action, public perception and betting patterns must be taken into account.

Divided action means the sportsbook is guaranteed a profit on the game because of the fee charged to the bettor (called juice or vig – typically $11 bet to win $10). Mike Seba is a Senior Oddsmaker at LVSC and has been making lines for the last six years.

Why the Line Changes

The opening line is the first line created by the oddsmakers, which is then sent out to sportsbooks.

Once the opening line is released by LVSC, the individual sportsbooks decide if they want to make any adjustments before offering it to the public. Stated another way, they want to create a line that half the people find appealing to bet one way while the other half find it appealing to bet the other way (known as ‘dividing the action’). Also, adjustments are made after reading each team’s local newspapers to get a sense of what the coaches & players are thinking going into the game.

A round-table discussion among the 4-5 oddsmakers involved in making the line for each sport is then conducted and a consensus line is decided upon by the Odds Director before it is released to the sportsbooks. Of the 4-5 oddsmakers, generally the 2 most respected opinions are weighed more heavily by the Odds Director before he decides on the final line. Each of these oddsmakers bring unique opinions, strengths and weaknesses to the process. Reasons for such adjustments include:

Oddsmakers at LVSC are professional sports junkies who love what they do and would probably do it for nothing if you asked them, but they do get paid for it.

Once betting begins, sportsbooks can adjust the line at any time. People think it’s much more complicated, but it’s not.”

For example, if the pointspread on a game is 7 and most of the money is coming in on the underdog (taking the +7), sportsbooks will then move the number down to 6 ½ to try and attract money on the favorite. Seba explained that it all starts with each oddsmaker creating a line on each game based upon their own personal approach.

Contributed by:

Oddsmakers can also change the line depending on various event-related factors such as player injuries or weather.

The last step in the line-making process for each oddsmaker is taking one final look to determine whether or not the line “feels right.” This is where common sense and past experience with how games are bet enters into the picture. . Examples of non-game factors that would require an adjustment to a team’s power rating are key player injuries and player trades. The power ratings are adjusted after each game a team plays. We do this by drawing from past experiences and applying them to current situations. By necessity their approach is very research-oriented and concise, since with millions of dollars at risk there is little margin for error.

Once a game’s power rating based pointspread is determined, the oddsmaker will make adjustments to that line after considering each team’s most recent games played and previous games played against that opponent.

The purpose of these adjustments, like all line adjustments, is to more equally divide the betting action.

“The #1 thing for us is to make a line for each game that creates good two-way action

Become A Proficient Horse Handicapper

These hot tips can come from anyone including trainers, jockeys, exercise riders, owners, grooms, clockers, and hotwalkers. In fact, more often than not, they can be a disaster. If you think these proven losers have all of a sudden become master horsemen and exceptional horse trainers; you are mistaken. Owners are also influenced by trainers who are trying some new medication or equipment on a horse, but you are better off looking at the program yourself for equipment changes. They are winning because of veterinarians and not because of their horse training! I suggest that you do not consider them a so called hot tip!

Many horse bettors like to watch for the big money bets that occasionally flow into the mutuel pools just before post time.

Many trainers nowadays give their horses as few as three gate works before entering them in race, and you will rarely see a workout longer than six furlongs on a first-time starter.

Article Directory: http://www.articledashboard.com

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Richard Bleuze provides articles and information on the sport of horse betting. If you have not yet placed a bet, I suggest th you simply skip the race. Many of the owners are biased in favor of their own horse to start with, followed by jockeys, trainers, jockey agents and exercise riders.

The most profitable approach is not only to become a proficient handicapper, but also to become adept at creating your own odds line.

Another so called inside tip is when you are told to place a bet on a first time starter who has been working well. A hot tip from someone in the supposely know can spread like wild fire until it makes its way to the betting windows. These trainers get hot for a few seasons and disappear into oblivion. But why?

Mainly because the people who create the hot tips are concerned only with their own horse without consideration for the other horses in race. It is a money thing! . Owners take advice from trainers, who in turn are influenced by jockeys and exercise riders. Despite the fact that these big late bets are often based on superior insider information and/or information products the general public does not have access too, it has been statistically proven that they predict success at about the same rate as the public. These tips are not usually hot. Many of owners think that because their exercise rider or jockey tells them that their horse worked exceptionally well, that the horse will win. Long gone are the days when a trainer would work a horse up to 10 times out of the gate and seven furlongs in company before staring in a six furlong race. They may know their horse is feeling good, but they fail to take into account the competition in the race. Now all of a sudden, they are winning 30 to 40 percent or higher. These types of bets can make a horse a favorite in a short time.

Many horse bettors and racetrack workers will often assume that a hot tip from someone who works at the track (jockey, trainer, owner, etc) is a good thing. There are ther races!

By: bleuze

With three different and often misinformed groups influencing the odds at various stages of the process leading up to post time, it pays to do your homework and wait for the odds to work in your favor. Thus, they tell all their close friends, who in turn tell everyone else, until all the connected money shows up at the windows. Besides the fact that the tipsters have generally not considered the other horses in the race, the trainer usually will not have the horse ready to go the distance in an actual race. You can find out more on his website,www.bettingthehorsesonline.com

You will occasionally see certain trainers who have operated at a 10 percent win clip for their entire careers

Destiny loves to play jokes with us, in the previous round the boys of Jurgen Klopp had made the decent game, winning at Anfield 4-3 against Borussia Dortmund , after the result was 3-1 in the 55 minute of the second game.

Good evening, dear readers and friends. Sometimes people do not like to get a figure pointed and the right direction. Do not get me wrong, I like also to watch football from Germany , Spain and France, but my main focus and betting experience is focused on Italy and England.

First game in Razgrad ended 2-2 and no one convinced the visiting squad to be the winner after the second game, which has been expected to be played against 50 000 fanatic fans of the Serbian team. It is the end of the football season in all the top 4 European leagues and I feel obliged , I have to say few words about the Champions an the runners up. Not only stars, but players and people who have changed and are currently changing the history of football. When you say Italy and Spain are playing , you figure out fast in your mind such names as : Casillas, Buffon, Di Maria, Baggio, Baquero, Guardiola, Vialli, Maldini, Donadoli, Paolo Rossi and many other. Those two teams met in the last final of the European Finals. It has been a long time since my last post.  Maybe Liverpool were very close to ruin that Spanish SuperCup Final, but Sevilla just made a remarkable turn-about. I am convinced it will be a perfect one as one f the best games of this Euro 2016 tournament is about to be played later on. I call it space ship, because we are travelling in the world of bets , sports, live betting and of a recognition of good and noble bookies, which deserve our attention and money.

Good evening , dear friends. As bettors and fans, most of us , had watched all of the games, been to some of the stadiums and made a lot of bet on all popular and not that popular markets. Even some of the home team Ultras went in front of the hotel of the Bulgarians and flamed piro effect, which was very cowardice and mousy thing to do. When you see the names of the teams in the header, I guess the first thing that occurs in your mind is – total Spanish dominance. England does not have a good national team, but the UK, Premier League is one of the best Championships around the globe, not only in Europe. The football program for today is very rich and intensive, but these two games have gathered my attention
