The only way that you are realistically going to secure the very highest possible odds on the greyhound that you think is going to win the Irish Greyhound Derby this year, is by getting your bets placed on the ante post betting markets.
Today therefore I want to showcase to you the odds on the most fancied greyhound to win that event outright, and it will be the odds that are currently available over at Betfred that I will be quoting, as they do appear to be the highest valued ones currently!
Favourite backers will be very eager to get their money down at the very earliest opportunities for make no mistake about it, if any one of the three current favourites win their heats you are never going to be offered odds as high are they are at this stage of the betting!
So, you will need to start placing your bets on Droopys Verve at 8/1, Lenson Blinder at 9/1, Slippy Cian at 12/1 right now if you do find any of their betting odds too high to miss out on, and those odds are now live at Betfred, but get over there rapidly as any high volumes of wagers placed on any of them will result in those odds being lowered!
Betfred Pay to Six Places on Each-Way Bets
If you think that it is way too hard a task to pick the outright winner of the 2018 Irish Greyhound Derby at this stage of the event, then you are going to be tempted to make use of the one quarter win odds available to each-way backers at Betfred, especially as they pay to six places!
Therefore if you have a sneaking suspicion that greyhounds such as Droopys Davy, Magical Bale or Borna Gin all on offer at 16/1, or Jaytee Taylor, Skywalker Logan, Cash Is King or even Whoops Jack all chalked up at odds of 25/1 ate going to get placed at least, then place an each-way bet with BetFred right now!
Greyhounds with a Fair Chance of Getting Placed
It can often be the case that a greyhound could make its way to the final race even if it hasn’t got the best form, for a bit of trouble on the track involving the usual bumps and scrapes as the greyhounds are taking the corners, could see a greyhound out in front staying there.
With that in mind and if you are looking for a few greyhounds that do have a fair chance of getting placed, do not underestimate the chances of greyhounds such as Cabra Hurricane and Crossfield Will at 28/1 or even Rockybay Foley and Stonepark Noel at 33/1.
If you want to place a few additional bets on greyhounds with much bigger odds then look at the likes of Clonbrien Hero at 40/1 or even Uncut Diamond at 50/1, either of whom have the track craft required to make it through to the final race.
