Greyhound racing is an exhilarating sport to watch and it becomes even more exciting if you put money in the game.
In order to get started, you’ll first need to become familiar with the different greyhound racing betting types.
The simplest and most popular greyhound racing bet of all is the win bet.
All you’ll need to do to be successful is correctly predict which of the racers will come in 1st place.
In order to be successful with a place bet, you’ll need to correctly predict which racer will come in 1st or 2nd place.
A show bet allows you to select which racer will come in either 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place.
No matter which position in the top 3 your racer finishes, the wager is winner.
Across the Board
Essentially 3 bets in 1, you place 3 individual bets on a single racer. You’ll collect on all 3 wagers if your selection comes in 1st place, on the place and show bets if your selection comes in 2nd place, and the show bet if your selection comes in 3rd place.
A quinella bet sees you placing a wager on which 2 racers will cross the finish line in any order.
In order to be successful with an exacta bet in greyhound racing, you’ll need to correctly predict which 2 racers will comes in 1st and 2nd place in the exact order which is far more difficult than best slot machines in Australia!
A trifecta bet in greyhound racing sees you placing a wager on which 3 racers will finish in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in the exact order.
Particularly difficult to predict out of the quinella, exacta, and trifecta betting types, in order to be successful with a superfecta bet, you’ll need to correctly predict with 4 races will come in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place in the exact order.
Accumulator or Parlay
An accumulator or parlay bet in greyhound racing sees you making multiple selections on 2 or more races with the intention of pressing the winnings of the first race on the bet of the following race etc.
In order for this type of wager to be successful, all outcomes must be correctly predicted.
Daily Double Bets
Similar to an accumulator bet, with a Daily Double bet in greyhound racing you’ll have to correctly predict which racers will win the 1st and 2nd races of the day.
The Daily Double presents quite a challenge, but if you believe that you’ve got all the answers, you can always take a chance.
With this type of greyhound racing wager, you’ll need to correctly predict the winners of 3 consecutive races.
Most certainly not for greyhound racing beginners, a Pick 6 wager is a further (and even trickier) extension of the Daily Double and Pick 3 wagers.
With this type of wager, you’ll need to correctly predict the winners of 6 consecutive races.
All the best with your greyhound racing endeavours!
