Alright you clowns, if you think place betting is so great, why bet in the win market at all? After all, it's the same profits, except with a higher variance, right? Go on, bet on favs to place and win 80% of bets @1.5.
The win market books are usually just above 100%. The 2-place market books are just above 200%, 3-place 300% and 4-place 400%. Over time based on random backing you will return roughly the same % whether you bet in only the win or place markets.
