Tuesday night greyhounds - keep your eyes on the favourite

There is nothing too unusual about the winner in the first race on the program at Richmond a few weeks ago. The favourite in the race, Versatility, did what it was expected to do - greet the judge first. The strange thing about the race however, was the significant variance it paid across the three totes.

On the NSW tote punters collected $2.30 the win and $1.20 the place. A little bit more value in Victoria where it paid $3.20 the win and $2.30 the place.

Punters who backed the dog with Tattsbet in Queensland, however, were either jumping around like kangaroos in their lounge room or crying on their knees. For the win it paid a disappointing $1.80 but for the place it returned a mamoth $96.60 the place.

greyhound tips


Don't scratch you head for too long wondering about this one. It probably goes something like this. Odds on favourite so punters mostly backing the favourite for the win. Light volume for an interstate meeting on the quietest betting night of the week means you could have probably counted the place punters on one hand for the odds on favourite. Which for a totalizator formula means big prices.

A few savy punters probably caught the price just before they jumped and couldn't press the keys on their laptop quick enough to capitalise on this one and a million opportunity.

Here is the lesson to be learned here. Tuesday night,, odds on favourite - keep your eyes on the place tote.
