With the advent of the Internet the amount of data one can find about a particular subject is amazing. If you searched on “Horse Betting Online” you will get millions of pages returned. Of course you don’t have time to sort through everything so as a person who bets on horses what on the internet can help you make better bets at the ticket window?
Lets start with the first step you should be taking when you are determining which horse you want to back or lay in the race and that is reviewing the Racing Form. Why wait until you reach the track and walk up to the betting window to get your hands on a copy of the latest racing forms? Many web sites provide you an online version where you can plan your betting strategy from the comforts of home. Here you can check how your horse did in the last few races, the jockey and trainer. Just like you were at the track. If you want more information on the jockey or trainer you can do searches on them. You will find more information then you really would want to. In addition many race courses have their own websites. Here you can get latest information about the track including if there will be a fast track or if you should be looking for a horse the runs well in the mud to bet on. If you can’t get an idea on what the track conditions will be from the horse race track’s website there are plenty of weather sites available. All you have to do is put in a location, like Bath or Brighton, and you will see the latest forecasts. If you want to skip the track entirely there are some horse racing sites that Betting Promotions show each race live. Talk about making it easy to bet on horses.
Speaking on easy betting, in the UK and many other countries like Australia and Ireland you are able to bet on the horses via the Internet too. Unfortunately in the United States it is illegal to use the Internet to bet on horses but maybe someday that will change. Online betting exchanges allow punters to place their bets for horse races all over the world. You can back or lay any horse you can find. In addition you may be able to take the bookie out of the bet entirely. These sites allow you to set your own odds and wager directly with other people looking to bet on horses. Most of these sites also let you place bet on other sports like soccer or greyhound racing. So if you get bored with horse racing you can dip into these other areas.
So the internet provides you ways to research horses betting online via the Racing Post, jockeys, and trainers, a place to make bets via online betting exchange, information about each track, and finally a place to watch the horse races via many video feeds directly from the race track. The Internet is a great tool any punter should use to better their strike rate.
