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
