Betting Place Parlays
In horse race betting - here is a statistic that has stood for decades:
One of the top three public betting choices - that is, one of the lowest three odds on the tote board - wins 67% of all races.
Perhaps even more amazing - and maybe something you can use to your horse betting advantage - is that one of those three finishes 1st or 2nd an astounding 90% of the time!
You probably know Horse Racing Gold is firmly (even devoutly!) contrarian. For the kind of race betting we advise, patience is an absolute must - success cannot be had without it.
Wouldn't it be nice though - if one part of the betting portfolio was always winning at a very high percentage? Even if the profits were relatively low, the psychological boost would be of immeasurable value.
Following is a possible horse race betting approach based on the statistics mentioned above . . .
First off - you do feel you are a better horse handicapper than the public don't you?
That's not to be taken lightly of course - in general, the overall public opinion is an excellent judge of fair odds. I'll go on the assumption that you do your own race handicapping, and have more confidence in that than a strict observance of what the public is doing.
So go ahead and handicap the races as you usually do, and rank the horses in the order that you give them a chance to win the race.
At five minutes to post, after eliminating any in top four at 17-1 or higher, take the lowest two odds of the (remaining) top four in your handicapped list - and keep them in the order that you ranked them - ex:
Your ranking with odds:
#3 - 7/2
#2 - 5/1
#4 - 9/5
#1 - 6/1
#5 - 10/1
You are going to bet the #3 and the #4 in an 'all possible ways' multiple parlay series.
The top ranked choice (#3 above) will be labeled "1" and the second ranked choice (#4 above) will be labeled "2." You are going to have two horses from every race, and these are going to be parlayed to the next race in each possible order for both - i.e.
1-1 1-2 2-1 2-2
The top ranked choice will be parlayed to the top ranked choice in the next race as well as to the second ranked choice in the next race -
The second ranked choice will be parlayed to the second ranked choice in the next race as well as to the top ranked choice in the next race.
