There’s the usual list of greyhound fixtures taking place this week – weather permitting. These include the UK and Irish BAGS and BEGS. Here are our top 19 October greyhound betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
Bookmakers offer punters the chance to bet on the runners they rate or throw together a few to create a punchy accumulator. Many of the top firms, Bet365 included, give members a live greyhound racing stream. This allows them to cheer on their selections in HD quality through the desktop site or mobile betting app.
Those looking further ahead can also bet ante-post on the winner of several upcoming tournaments. There are certain risks involved in betting before the final, of course. However, the rewards are well worth shooting for. That’s exactly what we aim to do when tackling the Scurry Cup which will be shown live on Racing Post Greyhound TV and betting apps this Saturday.
Value to be Found
There’s no lack of value around and that can be seen. In fact, the favourite is 3/1 and there are only three points between the market leader and fifth in the betting. Traders have drawn up their prices and are now sitting back and allowing punters the chance to take their pick and get their cash down. Who will carry your stake money as we get into the thick of this one?
Droopys Reel is 3/1 – top price favourite at Bet365. That’s a better price than the 5/2 or 11/4 you’ll get with most other firms. We’re willing to take a bit of a chance, however, and back Geelo Brezza who has been marked up at 6/1 with Ladbrokes. Each-way backers will benefit from 1/4 the odds a place 1-2-3. That’s worth keeping in mind if you’re after a bit of a safety net.
