We have the usual busy week of UK and Irish greyhound racing to look forward to with BAGS and BEGS meetings taking place every day. The standout of the schedule goes at the weekend, however, with races of real note scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. Here are our Greyhounds 6 October betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
You can bet race by race, backing singles or creating nice priced multiples. Big wins for small stakes is the aim if shooting for the latter. Bookmakers also give punters an opportunity to look further ahead and grab a slice of value by getting in early on the ante-post markets.
There’s a few to look ahead to but we focus our attention on the best of them which is the upcoming Kent Derby. Racing begins on Sunday and a large crowd is expected to be in attendance as well as lots more watching the live coverage on the Racing Post Greyhound TV app. If you are signed up with a major online bookmaker you can also watch for free through their online app.
Imagine the Value of a King Lennon Win
It’s a crowded list at this stage but bookmakers have been able to categorise the runners and have pinned Bockos Doomie to the head of their market. The jolly is currently available at 3/1 with Bet365 and that’s sure to be popular with backers. There’s enough value in the market leader to merit an interest, but we’re aiming for one at a bigger price.
We don’t let our eyes drift too far down the pecking order but settle for King Lennon who is available at a market best price of 6/1 with Ladbrokes. That’s second favourite but we believe the front two in the betting should be a little closer together. Take the value.
