We lessen our chance of loss by counterbalancing it with other bets

An example of Hedge Betting

TOP PICK

  • This is the horse we want to win
  • Paying $6.00 WIN and $2.50 PLACE
  • We bet $15 WIN and $45 PLACE

DANGER

  • This one might win instead!
  • Paying $4.00 WIN and $1.70 PLACE
  • We put a “Saver” bet on $20.00 WIN to cover bet costs
  • We can make this bet slightly bigger at times to make a small profit.

ROUGHIE

  • Sometimes we get lucky and the Roughie wins.
  • Paying $20.00 WIN and $6.00 PLACE
  • We put a small bet on –> $5.00 WIN and $15.00 PLACE
  • We ACTIVELY seek out the BEST Roughies, horses that are paying over the odds and are worth having an each way wager on.
  • Often, these places pay more than the winners

TOTAL BET ON 3 HORSES = $100.00

Possible Outcomes:

  • Danger wins $80.00 (so $20 loss)
  • + Top Pick places $112.50 (now a $92.50 profit)
  • + Roughie places $90 (now $182.50 profit)
