I am from Australia and would be pleased if I could get a few points of view.
Dealing with the difference in the greyhound odds shown on William Hill and Betfair. As expected the odds in Betfair are higher, due to the percentage but frequently two dogs that have the same odds in William hill have significantly different odds in Betfair. For example the 23:12 at Sheffield box 1 & 6 both were 4.00 of willhill but on B/f box 1 was 7.00, and box 6 was 5.80- By the way box 5 was 7.00 in both B/f and willhill. Question?? do you think the B/f odds actually represent the chance of a dog winning or is it the w/h odds. Also why do you come to that view.. Thanks for the help.

Don't matter what price wh are showing, they will not take a bet from anybody who wins long term anyway.

that's a bit of a negative (although very true) statement Romford.

I worked with the H1lls liability team for a bit and the funniest thing was a £100 punter in a shop had a very high strike rate at a BAGS northern track - they would always knock him back to £50 then all get on their phones to back it !

to original poster - some would say that bf odds are a truer reflection of a dogs chances as bookies odds tend to follow bf as opposed to visa versa.

3. Price. Do not assume that the prices on course, from the firms or on Betfair are correct. It is more a question of how wrong are they. It's all about opinions baby!

The serious answer to your question is that on Betfair THEY KNOW.

As a very astute on-course bookmaker once said to me - I dont want to know what's going to win, I want to know what isn't going to win.

THEY KNOW
