You probably already know that Best Odds Guaranteed is one of the most important offers you can get when it comes to betting on horse racing or greyhounds. But incredibly, not every online bookmaker offers this. However, bet365 are one of the top rated online bookies. So we’re pleased to report that they do have best odds guaranteed.
Best odds guaranteed is an extremely popular horse racing offer and if you bet on horses then you definitely will want to join a bookmaker such as Bet365 which offers it. It’s a guarantee that if the starting price (SP) of the horse you back is greater than the price you took, your bet will be settled at the higher price should your horse win.
Some punters place their bets minutes before the off but some prefer to get them out of the way in the morning. By doing so, you’re taking the risk of the price of your horse drifting which could have resulted in a greater profit should you have waited. However, with best odds guaranteed, should the price of your horse drift and is greater when the race starts, you’re guaranteed that higher price.
Let’s take a look at an example of how Best Odds Guaranteed works.
We want to bet on ‘Shoot To Win’ in the 13:00 at Newcastle with Bet365.
We place a £10 bet on ‘Shoot to Win’ to win the race at odds of 4.50.
Should ‘Shoot To Win’ win the race, we’d expect to receive back £45 from our £10 stake.
However, the odds of horses can change from the time you place your bet and when the race starts.
Let’s say that the price for ‘Shoot To Win’ when the race starts was 5.5. Should the horse win, our bet would be settled at 5.5 rather than 4.5. Therefore, we would receive £55 back. £10 more than originally thought!
Prices can fluctuate a lot throughout the day and so it is possible that you can receive much greater returns in certain circumstances thanks to Best Odds Guaranteed.
Another great thing about BOG is that you’ll never receive lower odds. Should the odds of your selection shorten by the off, you’ll receive the original odds so that you’re always guaranteed the bigger price.
Betting with Bet365 also means that you can stream horse races which you have bet on. They cover a huge number of races from around the world on a daily basis and provide excellent quality streams.
