What is Betfred’s Best Odds Guaranteed promotion?

BetfredBetfred’s best odds guaranteed is a promotion which runs on all UK and Irish horse racing and greyhound racing. The promotion states that if you take a price at any point after 8am for horse racing or 7am greyhounds on the day of the race and your horse or greyhound goes off at a bigger price you’ll automatically get paid out at that bigger price instead. The promotion removes the worry that you’ll get punished for taking a price early in the day.

BOG In Action: Example

If you’re struggling to get to grips with exactly how this offer works here’s a quick example…

You back Galloping Gerty at 8/1 or 9.0. If the price shortens and Gertys starting price is actually 6/1 or 7.0, you’ll still get paid out at the 8/1 or 9.0 your bet was initially matched at, not bad! If however the price drifts and Gerty goes off at 14/1 or 15.0, even though your bet was initially placed at 8/1 or 9.0 you’ll be paid out at 14/1 or 15.0, that’s some great value Betfred is offering here.
