Best Odds Guaranteed

Best Odds Guaranteed

Best Odds Guaranteed is one of the best and most simple racing betting offers around and is a real plus for those that love to bet on the horses. Here we explain what it is, how it works, and which online and mobile bookmakers offer it.

Betting is never easy and so using any little bonus you can get and taking advantage of any extra value or offers the bookies will give you can make all the difference between winning or losing over the course of a season. That’s why we only ever use betting sites that offer BOG and urge you to do the same.

What is Best Odds Guaranteed?

Best Odds Racecard

Best Odds Guaranteed is a betting offer that allows you to take the early price on a horse without fear that the SP (Starting Price) will be higher and you will end up losing out. If a horse is priced at odds of 10/1 on the morning of a race you can take that price and if it goes off at odds of 12/1 and wins you’ll get paid out at 12/1. On the other hand, if the horse gets backed in to just 8/1, you’ll still get the original 10/1.

You really can’t lose with Best Odds Guaranteed and over the course of a long season of betting on all the biggest races going and a few more besides, you’re almost certain to back at least a few winners that drifted out after you took the price. With BOG bookies you won’t lose out and nor will you face the agonising decision of whether to take the early price or not.

BOG – Points to Note

  • Best Odds Guaranteed does not apply to ante post bets
  • If you are betting with a bookie that offers BOG, always click to take the price rather than the Starting Price (SP)
  • Usually offered on all UK and Irish races though may be extended to other races too
  • BOG applies to singles and accumulators but not markets such as place only, tote bets or specials markets such as “betting without”
  • Bets placed online and via mobile betting are eligible for Best Odds Guaranteed

Which Bookies Offer Best Odds Guaranteed?


Not so long ago BOG was a specialist offer but more and more betting sites now give this great advantage to punters, to the point where it is almost expected these days.

Because we only work with the very best racing bookies around, pretty much all of them offer Best Odds Guaranteed on UK and Irish races, although this is liable to change. That said, whilst these elite racing betting sites offer BOG, there are still some out there that don’t, which is another reason to stick with the excellent bookmakers on this site.
