6 Simple Tips for Horse Bettors

| January 12, 2022, 08:00 AM

Horse betting is a popular pastime for many people. While some people may bet on horses simply for entertainment, others see it as a way to make money. Several factors go into horse betting, and it can be a complex process. However, with a bit of knowledge and research, you can become a successful horse bettor.

If you are new to horse betting, or have bet a few times and would like to know how to earn more money, or win more often when betting, here are 6 tips that might help you with that.

Know the Different Races

The very first thing that you should keep in mind when betting on horses is the different races. If this is your first-time horse betting. Then you might not be aware that there are different types of races. This means that the first thing that you should do is educate yourself on the various types.

There is harness racing, steeplechasing, flat racing, and endurance racing. It’s important to know the differences between races since different horses are better at different races and so are the jockeys. This will also help you to understand the various bets you can make. There are many other things you should know and consider as well when horse betting, such as the best post position, but luckily review sites like British Racecourses can help you understand some of it, as they provide extensive information on different aspects of horse racing.

Have a Budget

The next tip is probably the most important and that is having a budget. If you are new to betting in general, then you probably aren’t aware that they are different budgeting systems for different sports.

If you are betting for fun then it would be a good idea to have a budget to make sure that you can bet on enough races and enjoy your time at an event. If you are betting to make money, then it’s also a good idea to have a budget so that you don’t run out and miss out on a golden opportunity.

Favorite vs Underdog

When it comes to bidding on sports, especially horse racing, there is very little that you have control over, except who you bet on. This brings us to the next tip, which is knowing when to bet on the favorite compared to when to bet on the underdog.

In most cases, it would be a good idea to bid on the favorite since this horse is most likely to win. While you might not make as much money as you would if you would have bid on the underdog, you will still make some money and over time this will turn into a profit.

Have a Betting Strategy

The next thing that you’ll have to keep in mind when betting on horses is to have a betting strategy. Unfortunately, it’s not enough to just shop the odds, which we will talk about later. The good news is that there are many different betting strategies available online, and the research is freely available to you.

For example, there is a betting strategy where you bet on the favorite that was just beaten, and another strategy named the Dutching method will allow you to make money irrespective of the overall winner. This means you should research betting strategies as much as you can.

Research the Horse and Jockey

Any horse bettor worth their salt will tell you that you will need to research not only the horse but also the jockey. This is because when it comes to horse racing, even though a horse might be great at one race, it might be terrible at another.

This means that the onus falls on you, the horse. Better to determine which races a horse will most likely be best in. In addition to this, the rider matters as well, since some riders are better at one race compared to another. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that horses are the most important aspect of horse betting.

Odds and Bets

Finally, the last tip that you should pay attention to is shaping the odds and varying your bets. If you are betting online then the most effective way of ensuring that you make the most amount of money that you possibly can is by shopping the odds.

Essentially what this means is that different sites will have different odds for the same race. You should visit multiple sites and choose the best odds and increase the amount of money you make, should you win. You should also bet on multiple races, and don’t be afraid to bet on a different horse.
