Greyhound racing may not be riding on the crest of a wave like it was during the 1950’s, a time when some major cities had a dozen dog tracks and crowds were ten deep around all parts of the track. But the sport certainly still has its place in betting society.
Bookmakers have recently started broadcasting all BAGS (Bookmakers Afternoon Greyhound Service) races online to their customers while greyhound racing is served up on SKY Sports TV almost every week.
Greyhound racing betting is a beautifully simplistic betting medium with six runners in each race, colour co-ordinated race jackets, bets invariably placed as simple ‘trap 1’ or ‘trap 6’ instead of dogs racing names and the range of greyhound racing bets on each race simply incorporates win, each-way, forecast and tricast.
Every six-runner greyhound race features 30 possible forecast outcomes and 120 potential tricast results. If you couldn’t tell, Freebets.co.uk knows a fair bit about greyhound racing!
The biggest greyhound racing event of the year, by some considerable margin is the Greyhound Derby with its £250,000. William Hill sponsor the Greyhound Derby, a competition which receives several weeks coverage on Sky Sports and naturally the sponsors are keen to offer the best greyhound racing betting offers.
Not to be outdone, rival firms invariably counter attack with their own greyhound racing betting offers. Freebets.co.uk are dedicated to highlighting all of these promotions and the greyhound racing free bet promotions which may surface. This is in addition to Freebets.co.uk providing you with all the latest odds changes and well thought-out greyhound racing tips.
Greyhound racing betting is not all about the sport at the highest echelon however. There are at least two greyhound meeting running daily from as early as 11am with live pictures of the sports lesser-lights, known as graders, competing for your punting pleasure.
Greyhound betting odds recently received a shot in the arm with a number of online sportsbooks electing to offer ‘best odds guaranteed’ on greyhound racing making the sport even more attractive. These are the small differences and incentives which can make the difference between being a winning or losing punter.
