Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to have the time to watch the
horse racing all-day and only betting when you found the best price available.
Unfortunately this is a scenario many people just don’t have
the time for, they have a limited window of opportunity to bet, so ending up
relying on S/P, is this you?
There are many bet exchanges around like
betfair.com that offer early pricing, but you can not tell if you are getting a
good price until the bookies come on line and you have to pay commission on
top, so for your normal daily bet these are not always the best answer.
We all know that on many occasions the bookies will not
publish a price till 10 – 15mins before a race, giving you very little time to
work out your stake and place a bet and that’s if you remember to look!
So in many cases S/P is your only option, isn’t it?
Well it was until one
on-line bookie not only started giving early prices, but
good prices at that.
SportingOdds has prices for all UK races on-line by 10am,
and they will take bets on the advertised odds from that time.
Now your immediate reaction would be that they are probably
prices that are very much in their favour and I had to agree with you until one
of the readers of my “Daily Tip” sent me this.
There are 32 of the winners he selected for the month that
won as you can see on many occasions their early prices were better than S/P
and there were very few occasions when you would have lost out.
On this one-month you would have gained another 4pts by
going early price with
SportingOdds rather than S/P, so if anything else
SportingOdds early prices are very accurate indeed.
I know one month worth of data is inconclusive, but it does
point to a very practical way of betting early, while getting a clear
indication of the winnings you can expect.
