Why bet on greyhounds
Some essential statistics to study when betting on greyhound races are the total number of wins the different boxes have had on the racetrack, which trainers have prepared the most winners and the dog’s previous and split time records on the track.
Also important in regards to the starting boxes, is that certain greyhounds run better from particular box numbers, so look at the best starting box for the running style of the dog.
|Win||This bet type is simple and popular. Simply pick the runner you think will win the race!|
Depending on the number of runners in the race, you are betting on your greyhound to finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd in a race. You will always see the place odds shown to the right of the win odds. Note, if you bet on a greyhound to Place and they win the race, you will receive the Place bet odds, not the Win bet odds.
The number of runners in a race will determine if you receive a place dividend, they are as follows:
|Trifecta||Pick the greyhounds you think will finish 1st, 2nd and 3rd.|
|Quinella||The Quinella bet type requires you to pick the two greyhounds that will finish 1st or 2nd in a race, in any order.|
|Exacta||Similar to the Quinella, you are required to pick the two greyhounds that will finish 1st or 2nd in a race, however, the difference is you have to exactly pick the finishing order.|
|First 4||For the First 4, you are required to pick the greyhounds that will finish 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th in a race in the correct order.|
|Quaddie||The Quaddie requires you to pick the winners of four races set out by TAB Sportsbet in order for you to collect a dividend. Due to the nature of the bet and the fact it is difficult to select four winners, most of the time the Quaddie dividends are lucrative.|
|Fixed Odds||Pre-post Fixed Odds betting (open a few days, and sometimes weeks in advance) is offered on all major races throughout the year, while most day-to-day meetings carry Fixed Odds with betting opening 10 minutes prior to each race.|
