Short priced tote favourites - how to win money
1. If you take the short priced favourite to win in the first leg, then don't take the short priced favourite to win the second leg. By doing this you could well get overs.
3. So if you can successfully beat the short priced favourite in the first leg you may even get overs by taking your bet with the short priced favourite to win the second leg as many tote punters will have been wiped out.
4. This is also a reason why if you go for plays like quadrellas you will get a much better dividend if a longshot wins the first race rather than the last race of the quaddie. Many punters will take the field or pretty close to it in the last race so if they get the first three legs in they've got the quaddie. But not many punters will take the field in the first or second leg of the quaddie.
5. Bet differently from the crowd on the tote and you give yourself some show of beating the tote's 20% take from many tote pools. Bet like the crowd on the tote and you can guarantee you'll be among the 98% of punters who lose money long term.
