Midweek Racing Profits
The biggest racing day of the week for betting is Saturday when not only do the regulars bet but also the more casual punters also like to have a flutter and the other day I read somewhere that a lot of those weekend customers leave it until Monday to pick up any winnings.
Apparently Monday is not a bad day for bookmaker’s shops but by midweek the number of visitor’s drops until the weekend comes around again and the whole cycle starts again.
This got me thinking if there was a profitable way of exploiting this by simply betting on horses during the week and either leaving the rest of the week alone or using any profits to fund my betting during the rest of the week.
If you like flat racing whether turf or the all-weather then you’re in luck as profits can be made simply by backing the favourite, yes you read it right, backing the jolly old favourite with no form studying to do on your part.
Ok I will admit you can’t just back any old favourite on the flat during midweek it has to be on a Wednesday, why? Because I checked other days of the week and there did not appear to be much money to be made, in fact there was a big loss.
So we know when to back the favourites but does it matter what races they are in, well yes it does appear that sprit races holds the key and in particular five furlong sprints.
There is one other thing which makes this even better and that is over the last few years the biggest profits have been created on undulating courses, not quite sure why that should be but it does.
So I hear you ask, do you have a list of undulating racecourses, well yes I do and here are the courses that you should concentrate your efforts, Brighton, Catterick, Chepstow, Epsom, Goodwood, Leicester, Lingfiled, Newmarket, Ripon and Thirsk.
Backing these type of favourites over the last few years has produced a nice profit for those who have taken the time to do so and I hope it will continue for a couple of more which will certainly make a difference.
