So, if you're thinking of placing an each way bet on a greyhound race, you might be wondering if it's possible to select more than one dog. The answer is no—you can only bet each way on one dog per race.
One of the great things about greyhound racing is that there are so many different ways to bet. If you're new to the sport, you might want to stick with simple bets like win, place, or show. But as you become more familiar with how the races work, you'll likely want to try some of the more complex bets like trifectas and superfectas. Just remember—when it comes to each way bets, you can only pick one dog per race.
How Each Way Bets Work
In greyhound racing betting, an each way bet is a wager that pays out if your selected dog finishes first, second, or third in the race. The amount of money you win depends on where your dog finishes and how much you wagered. For example, let's say you bet £5 on a dog to win an each way bet and he finishes first. You would receive £5 back (£10 for the win and £5 for the place).
If you had bet £5 on a different dog to finish second in an each way bet and he came in second place, you would also receive £15 back (£10 for the place and £5 for the show). So as you can see, there's a good chance that you'll at least get some of your money back even if your dog doesn't end up winning the race.
Of course, if your selected dog happens to finish first in the race, you'll win both the win and place portions of the bet—giving you a nice payday! Just remember that when placing an each way bet, you're essentially placing two separate bets: one for your chosen dog to win and one for him to place.
Each way bets are a great way to increase your chances of winning while betting on greyhound races. And while you can only select one dog per race when placing an each way bet, there's still a good chance that you'll at least get some of your money back even if he doesn't end up taking first place. So next time you're at the track or placing bets online, keep this information in mind and try an each way bet—you just might be glad you did!
