How to Use The Virtual Kennel

Using Speed To Handicap The Hounds


                                                 Eb Netr On How To Use Speed
Speed comes up almost constantly in greyhound handicapping. Why wouldn't it? Speed is what gets one dog around the track faster than the other 7 dogs. Obviously, if you can figure out which greyhound has the fastest speed, you can pick the winner of any race. But that's easier said than done. Believe me, learning speed handicapping in greyhound racing can take a lifetime.
I think most of us handicappers start out by looking for dogs with the fastest times in their last races. When we realize that doesn't work, we may switch to dogs with the fastest "best time" if the program provides that information. Many of them do. But that's not really a true picture of how fast the dog will run in any race. Even if the conditions and dogs of the "best time" race were exactly the same, there's no way to tell how fast a dog will run.

Greyhound Handicapping Made Easy

Track Tips from the "Pup"


You want to win money at the greyhound track? Do you want the secret to winning at the greyhound track? I am going to share it with you in this blog ONLY if you promise NOT to tell anyone else!

To win you must pick the greyhound that will reach the finish line first!!! That's it in a nutshell.

If you are thinking you have just wasted 10 seconds of your life reading this, give me a chance to redeem myself. I am making the point that too many players get hung up on things other than the goal I stated above. Let me give you an example or two.

Have you ever spent 5 minutes trying to figure out what dog would break first? Have you agonized on deciding what dog will clear the 1/8th call first? I could go on and on but you get the idea. While these are certainly aspects of handicapping, if you don't make the leap from that one bit of information to this...which dog will win...then you are not accomplishing much.

Longshots And Spot Plays

Greyhound Handicapping With Eb 
by Eb Netr
I love longshots. There’s nothing better than seeing a dog cross the wire first when he’s at long odds and you have a bet on him. It’s not just the money. It’s knowing that you figured out something that most of the crowd didn’t. Spot plays, whether they’re longshots or not, are nice to find too. Sometimes you can use them with the favorite in a quiniela or tri and really make some money.
There’s something about longshots and spot plays that you have to know though, or you can lose your shirt trying to find them and play them. The most important thing to know about them is that you won’t find one in every race on the program. Obvious, maybe, but it’s something to think about if you’re a longshot player or someone who likes to find dogs in a certain “spot” that means that it’s likely to come in.

Handicapping Maiden Races

Ed Netr Tells How to Profit From Maiden Races
While many people think that M races are hard to handicap, I have a steady little income that would argue with that. It does take some digging and some time and effort, but I think it’s worth it. Here’s a general outline of how I do it, in case you’d like to try it, yourself.
First, I stick with only a couple of tracks. Wheeling Downs is one. They have the best and most consistent dogs, in my opinion, from the best parents. Although both parents hand down their characteristics to their puppies, like most people, I give more weight to the sire of the litter.
And, this is an important point, for research purposes, I stick with the 5 top sires when I’m looking for good puppies in M. Of course, my top five sires and yours might be different, depending on how you rate them. Mine are Dragon Fire, Lonesome Cry, Fuzzy’s Cannon, Trent Lee and Kelso’s Fusileer. A sixth, Yahoo Omar, is starting to show up on my puppy radar too.

Make The Max Bet for Max Profits

Handicapping Tips From "The Pup"
The correct amount to wager depends on several thing. When people ask what makes us different at www.greyhoundtracktips.com I tell them it's because we cover important things like this. No one else does.

1. When you are a novice player with a small bankroll your bets should be based on only one thing. The size of your bankroll. You should never bet more than 5% of your betting bankroll on a single race. 2% is the most optimum.

2. When your bankroll grows some your priority changes to betting according to your advantage. Your skill will also have grown. You will bet more on races where you have a huge advantage and less in races where you have a small advantage.

3. When you have the maximum bankroll and knowledge you will be looking to bet the maximum that the pool you are betting into can withstand. You will want to extract as much money from that pool as possible while maintaining a minimum return for your wager.

Those are the guidelines. It is more complicated than that because you must know how to bet. You must know what your advantage is in a race. You must know what pool wagering ratios are and what the minimum return is. But now you know where to start. If you want to know more than just a starting point we'd be glad to teach you at www.greyhoundtracktips.com

Handicapping Greyhounds Using Track Bias

Track Tips From The "Pup"

I have commented recently how much profit I have made at a particular track using ONLY track bias and nothing else. I mean, when certain post positions win 62% of the time and you frequently get odds of 10/1 and higher on those post position, why make handicapping harder than it has to be?

Most recently I was listening to some decent handicappers break a race down to the nth degree. Meanwhile the posts I liked were sitting at 7/1 and 14/1 respectively. Their logical winner missed the board completely and I hit a $30+ winner.

Do you know the bias at the tracks you play? I'm not saying this situation happens all the time at every track, but it is an exaggerated example of how much track bias could help your greyhound wagering skills.

If you don't have a comprehensive plan for playing the greyhounds you will lose. You must know all angles, all of the time, to win consistently. That's what we teach at www.greyhoundtracktips.com

Greyhound Handicapping - How to Use Kennel Stats to Pick More Winners

By Eb Netr
Most bettors know about kennel standings. In most programs, there's a list of the kennels and how many of their dogs won, placed or showed for the last month. It may also tell you their percentage of wins, places and shows out of the total dogs they ran. While this is good information to know, it's not all you should know about kennels. 

For instance, go through any program and look at the races. Notice which kennels have more dogs in the higher grades. You'll usually find that there are two or three kennels that do. Now, what does this tell you about this kennel?
