Bookies will hate customer writing their bets out like the following. I get asked a number of times how I bet using multiples.
Assuming I’m going to have a multiple bet I would always have my daily selection (bankers) in a multiple, as I expect these to win which gets me off to a good start as I’m looking for a minimum of 4 winners to be in the money.
So my betting slip would have, let say 8 selections.
Write out the horse selections, always take the price on my selections as they always tend to shorten. Also take the price on the last 2 or 3 runners as if you don’t and you land the first 7 winners the high street bookie will use one of their on course runners to shorten the price on track.
It doesn’t take a lot of money to move a horse odds from 8-1 to 5-1 on a low attendance evening at Wolverhampton. This could cost you a fortune. What would you prefer £50,000 rolling onto a horse that you took 8-1 or the starting price. Don’t let them shaft you, I learned when it happened to me, it was my money shortening the price.
My betting slip would look something like the below.
1 x £3 Each way accumulator (cost £6). Note the accumulator is the only each way bet.
8 x 50p Win 7 folds (cost £4)
28 x 20p win 6 folds (cost £5.60)
56 x 10p win 5 folds (cost £5.60)
70 x 10p win 4 folds (cost £7.00)
Total cost £28.20, you can reduce the cost by dropping the 4 folds or reducing the stakes from 20p to 10p etc or you could go the other way and increase these amounts.
I would not include trebles, doubles or singles as the extra cost would more than likely not be worth your stake, Also if there are mostly short prices I would consider dropping 4 folds also and increase 5,6,7 and 8 folds.
So if you want to stick it to the bookies, this is the only way you’ll give them a bloody nose.
