What is Best Odds Guaranteed
Most bookmakers now offer Best Odds Guaranteed on horse racing. Some on greyhounds too.
Fortunately, you have just found the most comprehensive guide to betting best odds guaranteed online in Ireland.
This list of best odds guaranteed bookmakers is regularly updated to ensure you know which bookies offer BOG and those which are moving into greyhounds, or different versions of BOG.
Also note details below of when BOG is available from, as this is something that has changed recently, and you may find that taking a price on the day before the race no longer qualifies your bet for BOG!
Best Odds Guaranteed Example
These are 2 different bets, placed online at 11 am
You use one BOG bookie, and the other bet uses a bookie who doesn't offer BOG
The horse you both backed with €10 at 6/4 in the morning wins at a starting price of 11/4 in the afternoon.
You win €27.50 thanks to BOG, your friend only wins €15 because he didn’t have BOG.

Best Odds Guaranteed On Multiples
Some bookmakers offering BOG do not extend the offer to multiple bets like accumulators or lucky15’s
Some bookmakers say they do not apply BEST ODDS GUARANTEED to Lucky15,31 & 63's but it may be that double's and trebles are OK
BOG can make a big difference to returns on multiples, so consider this information carefully and don’t miss out on some remarkably increased returns with BOG.
If we take a winning treble from horse racing on Thursday 21/06/18, using a Best Odds Guaranteed bookie and one that doesn't offer the promotions on multiples.
You can see the three bigger prices from the BOG bookie in the right-hand column.
|Non BOG Bookie
This is an extreme example, although perfectly possible.
It shows just how quickly things can mount up if horses drift from the price you take.
You can see that they all have larger starting prices than the odds taken earlier in the day.
With the great SP prices now combining to provide a return some 4 times larger than without best odds guaranteed applied
Best Odds Guaranteed Lucky 15
Much as you have seen from the example above, this is an example of the same in a lucky15 bet, where the BOG is applied more than once because these bets are permed.
[This is why some bookmakers will not offer BOG on multiples, because they have to pay out more, multiple times in this type of bet]
In June 2019 the bookmakers below DO NOT STATE that lucky15, 31 & 63 bets and other multiples are excluded from BOG promotions.

Best Odds Guaranteed Strategy
You really need a range of bookies to take advantage of best odds guaranteed.
Using BOG with one bookmaker for a winning strategy would be flagged up pretty quickly, and it is possible that the offer of BOG would be withdrawn from your account.
This is arguably perfectly legal and will be stated in the bookmaker's terms and conditions.
Worse still, you could find your account restricted to small stakes betting only, or terminally, a ‘Dear John’ email, informing you of the closure of your account due to a ‘trading decision’
If you have had trouble with restrictions, closures or removal of promotions as an online betting customer we have a dedicated article with advice on how to prevent your account being closed or restricted.

Best Odds Guaranteed (IE) FAQ's
Can you still get BOG the day before?
Many bookmakers began removing the offer of BOG prices before the day of racing a while back. Bookmakers that still presently offer before midnight BOG are bet365 and Boyles. This could change without notice, so best check with your respective bookmaker for up to date terms of the offer.
Do bookmakers like best odds guaranteed
Years ago when the concept was first introduced bookmakers would have been keen on the additional business BOG betting could bring in. Now, however, punters have become more sophisticated in the way they use BOG, and for operators, it is more of a necessary evil now than something they like to provide.
Can you get BOG on multiples?
Whether BOG will be applied to each selection in multiple bets will depend on the individual bookmaker. because of the potential compound effect of the BOG on doubles trebles and bigger, it can make huge differences that are not financially viable for a bookmaker to support. Again, check with individual bookmakers' terms as to whether they extend BOG to multiple bets.
Can you get BOG on other sports except Horse Racing?Best Odds guaranteed is also freely available on greyhound racing. It has been tried and offered on football but is little incentive to punters to switch bookmakers for this as the odds movement is so minimal in comparison to horse racing as to make it really not worthwhile. To that end, outside of racing sports like horses and dogs, it is nor generally offered.
