Price Boosts Update
For punters looking for value and special offers ahead of the major jump races, it always pays to undertake a survey of uk race bookies before the outset of the season to see which bookies are offering enhanced odds, price boosts and other specials.
Although there are no special markets yet available for the early season Grade 1 jump races or the biggest meetings later in the year, which will all be released in due course, there are nevertheless plenty of online sports books offering Best Odds Guaranteed (BOG) and money-back offers on the first of the season’s National Hunt meetings.
Below is a round up of the latest enhanced odds, price boost and BOG offers from leading UK online sports books:
You get Best Odds Guaranteed on all UK and Irish race winner markets (and some selected greyhound races) at Betfair on singles and multiples (win and each way). This means that if you back a winner at shorter odds than the eventual SP, you’ll get paid out at the higher price.
