How to Bet on Horses
Join now Let's take a look at what horse racing betting is all about. There are Horse Racing events every day all across the UK and Ireland, with several races running at various racecourses across the country. A variety of horses will run in each race and they'll each be assigned odds to indicate their chances of winning that race. These odds will vary depending on many factors including the horse's age, previous performances (form), the conditions of the track (going), the jockey, the field (the other runners in the race), and a number of other factors. For online horse betting enthusiasts, the trick is taking all these factors into account in order to choose the best horse on which to bet. It's because there are so many factors involved in this process that horse racing betting is such a thrilling pastime! But how to bet on horses is really as simple as choosing the horse you're interested in, selecting your stake and bet types, and placing the bet.
Horse Betting Tips
Betting on horses is exciting because even with all the information provided on the racecard, the results can still be unpredictable! But are there any horse racing betting tips you can rely on? Well it depends. A horse's odds are a decent indicator of what the bookies think its chances are of winning the race. So choosing a horse that's 3/1 over a 33/1 shot is probably a good start! But that's not the whole story of course. Horse betting tips often recommend looking at a horse's form; in other words, how the horse has done in previous races. The form is presented as a line of numbers, such as 12546. In this case, the horse won 1st, 2nd, 5th, 4th and 6th in its previous 5 races and so would probably make a good bet. Then again, it might have hit its peak and may not perform as well in its next race! Another good horse racing betting tipis to check the going as some horses perform better on soft ground than harder ground, and vice versa.
Horse Betting Calculator
Now because there are many ways to bet on horse racing, lots of people find a horse racing bet calculator useful in working out the potential returns of the horse racing bets they have placed or plan to place. For example, a Heinz bet involves 57 individual bets on 6 selections, involving doubles, trebles, 4-folds, 5-folds and a 6-fold. Sitting down to work out your returns on a €10 Heinz would take quite a while! Luckily this is where the horse betting calculator comes in handy. Simply choose a horse bet calculator that works for you and enter the details required. Most will ask for the type of bet, the stake, the odds of each selection, and various other details depending on your bet, such as whether you've bet each-way. Then click calculate and the calculator will show you your potential returns. You can of course sit down and work it all out with pen and paper, but a horse betting calculator is a handy time-saving tool that works well, making them worth using.
Today's Horse Racing Betting
The most popular way to bet on horses is on the day of the race, and when you click on horse racing on most sports betting websites, you'll be taken to today's horse racing betting. While some events attract what are called antepost bets, that is, bets placed quite far in advance of the actual race, most horse racing betting is done on the day. This is because the odds of the horses vary much more on the day of the race than in the time running up to race day. It's also much easier to get updated horse racing betting odds today than before. Choosing today's horse racing cards and betting at 10Bet not only allows you to bet on all the big horse races across UK and Ireland, you'll also enjoy best odds guaranteed on all of the day's UK and Ireland win markets.
