Back/lay 75% – the original version

This is a very simple method to take advantage of when a horse is supported in the market and goes on to win.

The horses in the morning are backed at the best possible price with bookmakers. Let’s, for the sake of this illustration, assume that the back bet is £10.

The lay bet is placed a few seconds before the off with Betfair and the stake is 75% of the back stake, in this case £7.50. This lay bet is a stake bet. We place the bet a few seconds before the off because Betfair does not allow lay stake bets at BSP only liability bets.

An 80 point bank is advised to operate this method as a stand alone version. One point equals the amount of the back stake.
