Horse Racing Picks By Wager Type

Some of our users like to place certain wagers on racing. For example, some may like the place and show wagering whilst others may only wager on the most popular Naps. We have dedicated pages for each of these types of horse racing wagers. 

The Nap of The Day Racing Picks

A handicapper's best wager of the day can be designated as their NAP. This is one of the most popular pages of the site with some users liking to wager on a handicapper's wager of the day or follow the most popular wagers today from the OLBG handicappers' best wagers. See today's Nap of the Day Picks.

Today's Best Each Way Racing Picks

Most horse racing picks are win picks, so recommend a wager on the horse to win the race. If however, a handicapper thinks that a horse is a good wager to either win or place then they will recommend an each-way wager.

Many of our users like each-way wagers as they are more likely to get a return. Some people like to wager at longer odds and are happy to get a return if their horse comes close to winning.

If that is how you like to wager then you can look at our dedicated page for today's best each-way racing picks.

How do I add my Horse Racing Picks to OLBG?

Every month, more than $1000 in cash prizes are available from our main horse racing handicapping competition as well as $200 for the horse racing naps picks competition. You can join OLBG for free and take part in the racing competitions.

You will need to be good to win these cash prizes as we have some excellent and consistently profitable horse racing tipsters at OLBG. But don't be put off as there are currently prizes right down to 134th place!

To win some of the larger prizes we do ask members to add reasoning for their picks. Many of our users find that this really helps their own betting, taking the time to write down why they are making and/or suggesting a bet. It is really useful for horse racing pick followers to understand why a bet is being recommended.

However, if you prefer not to provide this information you can still add your picks and win smaller prizes. We used to provide free bets as prizes but have recently replaced these with cash prizes as well.

How can I find the best picks on today's horse racing?

There are many different ways to use the horse racing picks at OLBG. Some people like to follow the most popular picks and look at the number and % of tipsters going for a specific selection. We call these HOT TIPS.

Make sure you look out for the most popular racing picks each day. We share these with you on our social media pages if you find that easier. Some go a step further and compare the % of people tipping a horse with its odds. To help with this we provide a confidence rating.

Some of our followers look for when the % of racing tipsters tipping a horse exceeds the % chances according to the horse's odds. For example, if 70% of picks are on a horse which is EVEN money (50%) chance, some believe that may indicate a good value horse racing bet. 

Others drill down into the picks and look for highly profitable tipsters with consistently profitable months and good level stakes profit. We call our tipsters with a 6-month profit and consistently profitable record HOT TIPSTERS. You can see these hot tipsters in their own section on the app or on the pages on the site. We have some really good hot horse racing tipsters. 

Others like to see a really well-reasoned argument for backing a racing pick which is why we provide comments from many of our expert tipsters. Our site is very well moderated by an in-house team as well as volunteer members. Pick comments can be rated and after a while, we get to know the tipsters who really research the picks that they make. This really validates the time and effort that many of our top horse racing tipsters put in. Not only does this save you a lot of time as you can research the best bets for you, but it also helps you to understand how the best racing tipsters find their bets.

Reading these comments regularly will give you great insight into their selection strategy. Some of our users who follow the racing picks on the site look for a combination of all of these.

How do I spot a winning horse myself?

While there’s no formula to finding winners, there are things to look out for that point to horses with the most potential.

The key to finding a winning horse is analyzing the most important factors in horse racing, such as the going and distance, handicaps, signposts, breeding, market movement, and outcome of previous races.

Out of this list, going is generally considered to be the most important factor in determining the outcome of a race.

When you do find a horse you want to wager on then make sure you are using the best bookie, head over to our Best Bettings Sites in the USA to find one.
