Can you make money laying Favourites?
It’s also clear that you’re only likely to find profit when laying odds-on favourites. … While laying long odds favourites seems like a strategy that could yield dividends, your liability is far too high and you’ll need to maintain a fantastic strike rate over the long term.
What number greyhound wins the most?
Of the eight boxes allocated for each greyhound race*, Box One (red) generated the most winners with 18.5%. This is traditionally the case at nearly all greyhound racetracks simply because the box is the closest to the rail and therefore the quickest route to the winning post.
The Post Record column shows you the total/win-place-show-fourth record for this greyhound for his performances from post positions identical to his current posting, or within one position. This statistic lets you see how well each greyhound has done in the past when positioned in a similar situation.
The seventh column is the Break Average column. For this statistic, weve taken each of the greyhounds races and averaged their break (or “Off”) call. In this column, the smaller the number, the better that greyhounds breaking ability.
And in the tenth column, Fin Avg, weve included the average of all of the finishes for each greyhound. Again, smaller is better!
The Odds Line gives the computer-calculated fair win odds for each greyhound based on Time Behind Winner and Avg Running Time. These fair odds will vary from actual odds.
In the final column of numbers, Variant Adjusted Times, each greyhounds times have been adjusted on a daily basis to take care of the day-to-day fluctuations in track speed. Each greyhounds times are multiplied by a daily adjustment factor, then the average is printed in the column. This allows you to more directly compare times across days where variations occur. Superscripts in a column denote the top three greyhounds.
