The basics of Greyhound Trading Part 2

In Part 1 of the basics of Greyhound Trading, we covered what a win and a place were in betting terms and why the odds are more stacked in your favour using The Two Trap Greyhound System.


As I mentioned before, as well as ‘straight betting’ as above, you can also do forecast betting and reverse forecast betting, what the flip is that? I can hear some of you squeal. Well let me explain.

There are actually two types of reverse and forecast bets, straightforward forecast or reverse forecast are where you trade using two traps expecting them to win and come second in a particular order (straight forecast) or to win or come second in either order (reverse forecast).


This is much easier than it sounds, so I can illustrate using a recent The Two Trap Greyhound System research done for you alerts recommendation;


Cast your mind back to Saturday 16th June, the alerts service recommended Trap 3 and 6 at Swindon; The result of the first race was 1st => Trap 6, 2nd => Trap 3.

So clearly, the obvious point here is DON’T go for a straight forecast, aside from missing out on the reverse forecast, it’s a staggering 899 to 1 against that this would come up in a 6-dog race, ouch – exactly!


But a reverse forecast, where the odds aren’t closer to half but are better, would have meant you would have made about 3 times your initial trade stake (less commissions). It’s difficult, if not impossible to know the exact return, since it varies by country, bookmaker and in the UK for example it’s based on a percentage of the TOTE.


So, a reverse forecast trade could be a twist to how you trade The Two Trap Greyhound System, but be warned you’re on your own there as I haven’t done any research to determine the strategy or the probability of success.


So, just a short point to finish on, a tricast or reverse tricast is where you have to select 3 dogs / traps to be placed 1-2-3 or any combination thereof. All I would say is – don’t go there!
