How do I pick a winner at odds of 4/1 or greater?
So now you hopefully understand how the 4/1 racing offer works. Now we will try to help you with some strategies for picking out the longer odds winners in order to make use of the offer.
- Bet on races with lots of runners – Horse with few runners tend to offer shorter odds across the board. This stands to reason given each has a greater chance of success, all else being equal. But if you are seeking a winner at odds of 4/1 or greater, then going for races with at least eight runners gives you a little more scope than when there are fewer runners. In a typical race with six runners, for instance, two or maybe three tend to be priced at odds of less than 4/1.
- Bet on handicaps – By their nature, handicaps attempt to level the playing field between the runners in a given race. This tends to lead to a more balanced book and more runners at longer odds. In this way you will have more to choose from when seeking your 4/1+ winner.
- Do your homework – Little goes further in helping you to pick winners of horse races than doing effective research. Looking at the form of the horse, jockey and trainer is the first step. Then delving into more detail about how the runner has performed at that track, on similar ground, against the same rivals. Add in more to the mix such as whether they were hampered in previous races by other horses or a health condition, whether they are on an upward or downward trajectory and you have the kind of information that can form the basis of a decent bet or two. Befriending talkative jockeys and trainers always helps too!
- Bet at or near to 4/1 – It probably goes without saying, but the Bet365 4/1 Racing Offer will come work for you whether your horse comes in at 4/1 or 40/1. Clearly a horse rated as a 4/1 shot by the bookies, who have access to a whole lot of data on the runners and riders, has a far better chance than a horse priced up at 40/1. It stands to reason, then, having taken into account all other factors, your best chance in the long term of making use of this offer is to back horses with the best chance of winning. So if the bookies’ odds are to be believed those will be the horses available to back at odds of 4/1, or as close to it as possible while still being greater than 4/1.
Of course, however you choose to pick your horses to bet on, you will need a slice of luck to pick the winners on a regular basis. As such it is important to only ever bet what you can afford to lose and also Gamble Responsibly.
