Open Betting Races
Open races do not mean value
We'll keep hammering away at this one until enough people over time contact the racing media responsible and tell then to stop telling them that open betting races mean value.
How often do you hear racing media commentators when there is a wide open, terrible betting race say, "This is an open race. So you're going to get value whatever you like in this particular one." (Actually they usually tell us these races are "good betting" races!)
What absolute garbage!
How can it possibly be that the more open a race is, which means the less chances the punter has of backing a winner with one selection, the more value there is in that race for the punter? That is a blatant contradiction.
Tell you what, I'll offer any media commentator $21.00 about any single number of their choice coming up on a roulette wheel. To quote them again, "You're going to get value whatever you like." So I'll be quite happy to offer them that "value" all day every day.
Will they take up the challenge and get "value"? We all know the answer. So how about stopping this "value" nonsense talk whenever there is a wide, open raffle race.
