Your bets on UK and Irish horse racing are now covered by Mr Green Best Odds Guaranteed. The BOG offer means that if your horse’s odds drift before the off, you’ll get the best odds, guaranteed. It’s a promotion that can add some unexpected additional winnings and can boost your matched betting takings too.
Mr Green Best Odds Guaranteed applies only to UK and Irish horse racing. To be sure that a race you have bet on qualifies, look for the BOG icon on your betslip. Qualifying bets must be placed on the same day as the races concerned. Therefore, no Ante-Post bets, Enhanced Offers or Daily Racing Specials will qualify. Real money bets are eligible but bets placed with free bet funds are not. In the event of a dead heat, the best odds guaranteed concession will be applied after the odds are divided and then multiplied by the stake.
Here’s an example of best odds guaranteed when betting in the traditional way. Let’s say you back a horse with a £10 stake at an early price of 4/1 (5.00). If the horse goes off at Starting Price (SP) 3/1 (4.00), you’ll still be paid at the original odds. However, if it drifts to an SP of 5/1 (6.00), then you’ll be paid at the bigger price.
When matched betting this offer can result in a handy bonus. Let’s say you are looking to place a qualifying bet for a Mr Green offer on a horse with odds of evens (2.00). The lay odds on Betfair are 2.05 so a lay bet of £20 would be suitable. Now if that horse were to drift to say 2.50 and win, instead of a £1 qualifying loss, you’d actually pocket £9.
