Greyhound tipping comes to OLBG!

We’ve had many requests over the years to add greyhound racing to the list of available sports to tip on and we are pleased to announce that we will are offering this sport as of now and a full prize table will be in place from tomorrow, Friday 1st December.

https://www.olbg.com/members/maketip.php?id=27

Tips will have to be placed via the greyhound’s actual name (as per the race card) as it is too problematic to add using trap numbers.

Tips will be win only, and best odds guaranteed will kick in if you take a price and the SP is bigger.

Forecasts will not be available.

If your selection is a non-runner it will NOT be replaced with the reserve.

All the UK tracks that offer odds will be available to tip on and we will also have a small number of Irish meetings which will be dependant on if we get odds in our betting feed.

This will be a comments only table and prizes will be a total of £100 which will be split as follows:

£25 x 2, £5 x 10

If you are new to adding tip comments on OLBG please have a read of the following guidelines:
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=61789

If you are still unsure of what is required, please get in touch via the contact form and we can advise.

Obviously, this is a big new area for OLBG and we are keen to get as many of our knowledgeable tipsters involved as soon as possible.

Please be aware that as this is a completely new sport for OLBG there may be teething problems initially and we would very much appreciate it if you could report any issues you experience via the contact form.

Good luck!

Hi Bryn,

Tipsters methods for the selection process can obviously be quite varied so I guess first off you need to ask yourself why you are backing a particular dog -

- Is it it's recent form and improving race times ?
- Has it clocked the fastest time amongst the field ?
- Is it running from it's ideal 'winning' trap opposed to recent unsuccessful runs ?
- Is there any track/trap bias from earlier results on the card ?

Other members who follow the greyhounds closely i'm sure will be able to add a lot more pointers too like bitches running out of season etc..

Hi Jim
is there a place on here I can look, to see how much write up need.

Yes, do form is one yeah time to.

And all of these you mention to
Is it it's recent form and improving race times?
- Has it clocked the fastest time amongst the field?
- Is it running from it's ideal 'winning' trap opposed to recent unsuccessful runs?
- Is there any track/trap bias from earlier results on the card?
As for the last one no idea
a lot more pointers too like bitches running out of season etc..
As i mostly go by time- number form etc..

cheers Bryn

Hi Bryn,

The greyhound comment criteria is the same as for the other sports, at least 20 and no more than 200 words. Here's the guidelines forum link if you need to refresh for any pointers -

Also you can check out what some of our other greyhound tipsters are adding to get an idea, here's the page link to the greyhound tips -
