Get Those Betting Odds!

Placing a bet on "the winner" is not all there is to betting on horses. Just by making sure you obtain good odds about your bets can mean the difference between losing a lot of money and breaking around even or maybe making a small profit.

Have a look at these odds about some popular tote winners from Rosehill and Moonee Valley last Saturday, July 17.


Tote: $3.10
Bookmaker top fluctuation: $4.60
Bookmaker starting price: $4.20

Moonee Valley

Timeless Dane

Bookmaker top fluctuation: $4.00

Dandy Kid
Tote: $4.20
Bookmaker top fluctuation: $5.50
Bookmaker starting price: $5.50

As a general rule bookmaker odds for Saturday meetings held in Sydney and Melbourne absolutely destroy tote odds for:

1. The most favoured horses (That's where most of the winners are!)
2. There needs to be reasonable disclosed form. This rule will not apply for a 2YO race full of first starters.

There are plenty of offers on this site that will help you get decent odds and give you a much better chance. The question is:

If you are not doing so already are you prepared to make the changes necessary to your win betting so you get better odds and better returns for your money? Or are you going to turn a blind eye, ignore reality, and pretend you are getting good odds for popular horses in Melbourne and Sydney on Saturdays? Just like some posters in our forum who post saying, "Bookmaker odds are no good. I always bet on the tote."
