Horse Racing Betting Tips FAQ

Here we provide answers to some of the most commonly asked questions when it comes to our horse racing betting tips.

Q: What do they mean by odds in horse race betting?

A: For example, if the odds is 9/4, it means for every 4 units you stake, you will get 9 units plus your stake if you win. If the odds are the other way around such as ¼, it’s an odds-on and it means the horse is a favourite.

Q: How is the Trifecta payout calculated?

A: This is done by dividing up the pool of money from the community bet in the amount of correct $1 bets. So if you have a $7 trifecta bet, it means you will get 7 shares from the winning bet pool.
