As a night at the greyhounds becomes a fun activity for families to enjoy on almost any day of the week, looking at dog racing betting odds may now prove more valuable than ever. There are 26 licensed greyhound stadiums in Great Britain, with dog racing betting odds available for tracks including Belle Vue, Hall Green, Romford and Perry Barr, while many of the most prestigious races are run at Wimbledon.
Know race jacket colours to help with dog racing betting
With all six dogs in a typical greyhound race given a different racing jacket, becoming familiar with the colour scheme will help when taking part in dog racing betting. The dog in Trap 1 will always be in red, with Trap 2 in blue. Both of these dogs will have the number on their jacket written in white. The Trap 3 dog wears white with a black number and these colours are switched for the dog in Trap 4. Trap 5 means an orange jacket with a black number and Trap 6, who is drawn on the outside, wears a black and white-striped jacket with a red number.
Look a Greyhound Derby for prestige in greyhound betting
Undoubtedly the most prestigious event in the dog racing calendar is the Greyhound Derby, which is run at Wimbledon. Only four dogs in the greyhound betting have gone down in history as having won the race twice, with Westmead Hawk the most recent two-time winner of the classic in 2005 and 2006. The other dual winners are Rapid Ranger in 2000 and 2001, Patricia’s Hope in 1972 and 1973 and Mick The Miller in 1929 and 1930.
Be versatile when it comes to greyhound betting
Although it is always good to pick the winner in the greyhound betting, money can also be won by opting for some other bets. Perhaps the most popular is the reverse forecast greyhound bet, where a punter picks two dogs and as long as they finish first and second in any order the bet pays out. Also popular is the combination tricast, where three dogs are selected to be the first three home in any order.
