Most Popular Betting Markets
Betting on the dogs is obviously very popular, although due to the nature of how quick greyhound races are over, you cannot actually bet in-play while the race is taking place. However, just before the off you can access a number of different markets with the most popular being listed below:
To win the race
This is the same market as is available all day and if available right up until the off of the race. You can bet to win on this race, or bet each way and as the race draws closer you are more likely to see price changes on the dogs taking part. A standard greyhound race takes less than 30 seconds to run, so as soon as the race begins betting on the event ends.
Just before the off, bookmakers open up a match betting market where you bet on what is essentially a two dog race. Here you are choosing which dog will win out of the two listed, it doesn’t matter about their finishing positions. You will usually find one or two match betting options available to you on a normal race, although on big races bookmakers may offer three or four covering different the entire field. This market only opens up just before the off so it is classed as an in-play market, but closes when the race begins so you can’t actually bet during the race.
Forecast / Tricast
Popular in horse racing but also with greyhounds forecasts allow you to bet on the which dogs will finish first or second in the race whilst a tricast is betting on first, second and third. Obviously you’re going to get much better odds than a simple to win race bet here as it’s harder to predict.
Do I need to pay?
You do not need to pay to watch any streams, however some require you to place a bet on the race you would like to watch. See below for the criteria based on who covers the race.
- RPGTV does not require a bet to be placed, but you can only watch if you have funds in your betting account or have placed a bet over the last 24 hour period.
- BAGS requires you to place a bet of £0.50 win or £0.25 each way to watch the race.
- Other streams require a £1 qualifying bet, but this opens the streams up for the rest of the evening.
When can I start watching?
The live greyhound racing streams begin just before the race is about to start, approximately one minute before the off. They last for the entire race, and show a replay of the race after before turning off.
Where do the streams come from?
The streams come from a combination of RPGTV, BAGS and Sky Sports.
- RPGTV covers two meetings per evening, seven days a week.
- BAGS covers six or seven meetings per day, two morning, one or two afternoon and two or three evening meetings.
- Sky Sports covers main events in the UK, with cards including race finals taking place on an evening.
