Making the Best Horse Racing and Sports Bets
Who doesn't love a good punt on the horses? With one of the widest betting ranges of any sport out there, when it comes to horse racing betting, it can really pay to know your strategies.
Just like with other types of sports betting, there are certain horse-specific ways to make your bets count, and not just by keeping updated with horse racing news: here are a few you should know about before laying down a wager.
Check Out the Recent Winner
This is because they're probably stronger horses, and are on top form, repeatedly submitted to races to avoid handicapper penalties. That and they only get better once they reach their prime… so tracking a horse that's a frequent winner will likely mean you are also in the running to win!
A quick word here on betting on favourites: as we mentioned above, recent winners are more likely to win again. However, betting on favourites will also give you the lowest odds of all - if you genuinely believe it's going to win, then do it, otherwise, look for a good value bet to kick-start your betting.

Watch Your Wallet
Setting yourself a daily budget or even a budget per session or event, is a great way to make sure you make the most of your bets - because once the money's gone, it's gone.
Generally, you should never make a stake worth more than 5% of your total budget - because it's pretty risky, and your bankroll will go faster than a winning horse on the track!
