What’s the Difference Between an Each Way Bet and a Place Bet – We know that an each way bet is broken into two parts. You’ve got the win bet and then the place bet which pays out a percentage of the original odds based on the finishing position. A place bet is a single bet where you bet on something to finish within a set number of places with fixed odds.

Where the pick finishes doesn’t matter and there are no extra payouts for the pick winning. For example, let’s assume that your place bet was on a horse to finish within the top 3 spots. Regardless of where that horse finishes, you will be paid the same if it comes 1 st, 2 nd, or 3 rd, Your bet would lose if it finished 4 th or lower.

There are merits to using a place bet over an each way bet as it means you don’t need to invest as much money. Remember, each way requires double the stake which is split across the two bets, where the place bet is a single bet with the whole stake at the odds you take to the start of the race or market.

### How does each way pay out?

How Much Do I Get With An Each Way Bet? – The amount won depends on a number of factors. Most importantly, did your horse win the race, or was he just placed? And what odds did you get when you placed the bet? Let’s assume your horse wins (1st) at 40/1 and you’ve backed him for £5 eachway, which is £10 in total.

- The £5 ‘ win ‘ portion of your bet pays out £200 (£5 x 40/1) plus the original £5 ‘win’ stake is returned, giving you £205.
- You’ll also get paid out on the ‘place’ part of the bet too! However, bookmakers will typically only pay out 1/5 of the quoted odds on the ‘place’ portion of the bet for big races.

The £5 ‘ place ‘ portion of your bet pays out £40. Worked out like this – a fifth of 40/1 is 8/1, £5@8/1 = £40.00, and your original £5 stake is returned, giving you £45. Add that to the £205 ‘win’ portion and you’ve got £250 in winnings. Now let’s assume your horse came third, bear in mind that it doesn’t make any difference to the payout if your horse finishes 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th with some bookmakers.

### What is an example of an each way bet?

Will you at least break even if your selection places? – You will need to consider not only the win odds of the horse you want to back but the place odds too if you want to make an each-way bet. This is because you lose money overall on an each-way bet that places if the place odds aren’t Evens (1/1) or more.

- An easy method to use, which means you will at least break even, is to find the each-way fraction and invert it to give you the minimum win odds you need.
- For example, with an each-way fraction of ¼, you will need odds of at least 4/1.
- If you bet £4 each way on a horse with win odds of 4/1 (total £8), you will lose £4 on your win bet if the horse places.

However, the each-way bet will pay at evens (1/1) so you will return £4 plus your £4 stake and you will break even.

## What are the rules for each way betting?

An Each Way (E/W) bet is basically two bets – one bet is for the horse to win, the other is for the horse to place. For Example – You place a £5 E/W bet on Think Champagne in the 18:00 at Wolverhampton at odds of 5/1. This will cost you £10. £5 on Think Champagne to win and £5 on Think Champagne to place.

## What happens if you bet each way?

An each way bet is two bets in one. You are betting on your horse/greyhound etc to win the race and for it to ‘place’. Placing means it hasn’t won the race but it has finished in the places we pay out on.

## What is 5 euro each-way at 10 to 1?

How to Calculate your Win in an Each Way Bet – If you place an each-way bet and the horse wins you can calculate your return in the following way.

You have placed €5 each way on your chosen horse at 10-1 which is a total stake of €10.You will receive the win part of the bet which is 5 x 10 plus your stake which makes a total of €55.The place part of your bet will also be returned. Eg. the bookmaker is paying 1/5 of the odds, you will also receive 1/5 of 10-1 = 2.You then receive 2 x 10 = 20 plus your €5 stake so €25.Your total return is therefore €80.

### What happens if an each-way bet wins?

< Return to what is a single bet Go to what is a place bet > · An ‘Each-way’ bet is made up of two components, a win bet and a place, which means that if your selection wins the race, you are paid out on both, though should your horse only finish in the places, you will still receive a return at the place terms. For those looking to place a wager on a horse race each-way bets are a popular choice. The structure of an each-way bet is straightforward, with half of the stake going on the selection to win and half being bet on the selection to ‘place’, usually in the top two, three or four positions in the race. Each-way bets are therefore a good way to get your stake back and still make some profit even if your horse doesn’t win. You will often see this type of bet abbreviated to EW or E/W. Understanding the returns you can make from each-way wagers does require a few sums and with bookmakers like Betfair and Paddy Power they offer each-way betting calculators to help punters with the maths.

### Is it better to bet each-way or to win?

Each to his own. Know the old saying? In a way, it sums up betting. Some punters like to bet for a win, others for a place, still others love the quinellas or trifectas, or doubles. It’s all a matter of taste. The bet that everyone has, at some time or other, is an each-way bet.

It’s the conservative bet, isn’t it? You pick out a horse, you reckon it can win, but instead of backing it for $10 to win, you have $5 each-way. Better to be safe than sorry. It’s a natural feeling. Although you strongly fancy your selection you still realise that it can be beaten, and that if it is beaten and it runs a place you want to get some of your money back.

Usually, it doesn’t matter the price of a selection, the punter will back it eachway. It also doesn’t matter how big the fields are. The punter, in his enthusiasm to have a bet, ignores his actual percentage chances of securing the proper slice of the cake.

There is a case to be made for NOT betting each-way, as much as there is a case TO bet eachway. It depends on many, varying circumstances surrounding each bet. The general line of thinking is that a short-priced favourite is a good bet if you can back it each-way. And, statistically speaking, the odds are on your side, because – as we all should know – the longer the price the less value there is in the return (relative to starting price, that is).

Don Scott, the successful professional punter, put the whole issue of each-way betting most succinctly in his fine book Winning More. He wrote: “In general, we may say that the punter has an advantage over the each-way bookmaker in fields of 8 to 12 runners if he backs eachway horses quoted at 7/1 or shorter for a win.

“The shorter the win price, the greater advantage for a place. Finally, after even money is reached, the bookmaker usually calls a halt and refuses to bet each-way with an odds-on favourite in the race.” Scott points out that the higher the price above 7/1 the better it is for the each-way bookmaker.

Ironically, of course, it is those horses at 8 / 1 or longer which are the ones that attract most punters! As Scott puts it: “(They) fall over themselves to take the bad eachway value. By laying these horses eachway for a lot, and the short-priced horses each-way for only a little, and by keeping his prices under the average straightout prices, the each-way bookmaker manages to balance his ledger and finish in front.” Scott’s belief is that only the ‘stupidity’ of the average punter allows the eachway bookie to survive.

WIN PRICE | PER CENT | PLACE PRICE | PER CENT |
---|---|---|---|

evens | 50 | 1/4 | 80 |

2/1 | 33.33 | 1/2 | 66.67 |

3/1 | 25 | 3/4 | 57.14 |

4/1 | 20 | 1/1 | 50 |

5/1 | 16.67 | 5/4 | 44.44 |

6/1 | 14.29 | 6/4 | 40 |

7/1 | 12.50 | 7/4 | 36.36 |

8/1 | 11.11 | 2/1 | 33.33 |

10/1 | 9.09 | 5/2 | 28.57 |

16/1 | 5.88 | 4/1 | 20 |

20/1 | 4.76 | 5/1 | 16.67 |

50/1 | 1.96 | 12.5/1 | 7.41 |

100/1 | 0.99 | 25/1 | 3.85 |

As Scott says, if you could always obtain the best odds each-way about horses that start between evens (1/1) and 7/2, you would never need to study class, form and weights. It would be a sure-fire system, a certain winner! Let’s examine this whole each-way betting thing a bit further.

- Let’s say you’re a punter who can pick two winners from 10 bets at, say, 5/1 each, and you can get three other placegetters (all at 4/1).
- If we work on the basis of $20 win bets, we would outlay $200 on the 10 selections, for a return of $240, a profit of $40.
- But what if we had bet all the 10 horses at $10 each-way.

Would we be better off? Okay, on the win bets on the 5 / 1 chances, you get back $120. On the place side of things on these two horses you get back $45 ($10 at 5/4 the place for each). So far, you have $165 back. Now you have a total of $60 coming back from the other three placegetters ($10 at evens the place on each 4/1 horse).

- Hi &~ then, you have got a return on your each-way betting of $225, a profit of $25.
- In this instance, the win betting has proved more profitable, by $15.
- The point is that if you can pick what are known as ‘middle range’ winners you shouldn’t really be backing them each-way.
- Let’s’ examine the issue another way, this time through the eyes of a punter backing short-priced horses.

Let’s say he has a win strike’ rate of 40 per cent, and can get 60 per cent placegetters in every 10 bets.11 Let’s assume the four winners were each 2 / 1 and the placegetters were the same price. Betting for a win only, the total return on $20 bets would be $240 – a loss of $20.

- Betting $10 each-way, you would get back $120 on the winners.
- You would then have six successful place bets, each returning odds of 1 / 2, so for each $10 bet you would get back $15, for a total return of $90.
- ‘ Your each-way betting, then, has returned $210.
- Once again each-way betting has proven to be poorer value than simply straight win bets.

What if you had only struck three winners and seven placegetters at the same ‘2/1 prices? In this instance, you would lose $20 if you bet for a win only (bet $200, return $180). Betting $10 each-way, you would get $90 back from the three winners, and then you would have 7 successful place bets each returning $15, for a total of $105.

Your each-way betting, then, has returned $195, for a loss of only $5. This is a much better performance than your straight win bets, which lost $20. You can see from this that as the prices get shorter, the percentages start to work a little more in your favour on the place side of things. The thing to remember when deciding if you are going to bet.

each-way is not to let your expectations get too high. Some punters may recklessly expect to secure a high win strike rate with short-priced horses. An old pro once told me, though, that if you could get 60 per cent placegetters, at any price, you were doing well.

- And is a strike rate of 30 per cent attainable, even by backing short-priced horses? Well, favourites only win around 30 per cent of the time, so maybe that should be you 1 r ultimate yardstick as far as short-priced winners are concerned.
- Many pro punters make a betting lifestyle out of backing selected favourites each-way at 2/1 and sometimes shorter (down to evens).

This is best done in special races. In his excellent book Commonsense Punting, Roger Dedman wrote of this: “The type of situation where this applies is one in which you think the favourite can win, but there is one logical danger – or at most two other horses which can be given a real chance of winning.

“This most usually occurs in restricted class races at provincial meetings, but occasionally similar situations crop up in the city. The two dangers might be around 4/1, with doublefigure odds available about the rest of the field. Backing the favourite at 2/1 each-way gives you odds of 2/1 ON the place, when you think it is a near-certainty to run a place.

“Instead of risking $100 straightout at 2 / 1, with a chance of winning $200, the pro might take $400 to $200 each-way. If the horse is beaten, but runs a place. he still loses $100 ($300 return for a $400 outlay) but if it is he makes a profit of $500.” We, can sum up, then’ a few rules about each-way betting.

The longer the each-way price, the better it is for the bookmaker. The shorter the each-way price, the better it is for the punter. As fields get bigger, the place odds of one-quarter the win odds are more and more in favour of the bookmaker. In a field, say, of 21 runners, when all the chances are equal, fair win odds are 20/1 and fair place odds are 6/1 – not the 5/1 the bookie will offer you. Bet for a win if your winners are usually at 4/1 or longer. If you want to play safe’ it might be wiser to bet two horses for a win in the race, rather than bet each-way. Be very wary of betting each-way in big, fields. In general, the punter has an advantage over the each-way bookmaker in fields ‘Of eight to 12 runners if he backs each-way horses quoted at 7/1 or shorter for the win. The shorter the win price, the greater the advantage for a place. Before you bet each-way, do your sums. Work out possible returns on a conservative basis (say 25 per cent wins, 55 per cent place, long term) and get your average winning price established.

## Can you profit on an each-way bet?

How To Make Money Each Way Betting (Mathematical Strategy): – Each-way betting can be very profitable if you have the right strategies. In horse racing, you may have heard the term “bad each way race,” this means that it’s a bad each-way race for the bookmaker and there is value on offer for the punters.

A classic example of a bad each-way race might be eight runners with five outsiders and three horses towards the head of the market. The favourite might be 5/4 and then the second favourite is 7/2 and the third favourite 9/2, The strategy is to back the second or third favourite each way because there is value in the place part of the bet.

If you divide 9/2 by 1/5 you get odds of 1.9 to place – but the true price of placing could be much lower because of the make-up of the race. In the place-only market on Betfair, the price might be trading at 1.6 for example. Plus, you have the added bonus of the third favourite actually winning the race.

These are the types of races and situations that bookmakers hate, and they generally don’t like laying those types of each-way bets. It’s fantastic value for the punter. Check out this video guide: Another good each-way betting strategy is to use the extra place offers from bookmakers to profit. Much like the above strategy, there is a small risk involved, but overall the strategy is very profitable.

Let’s assume there is a big 20-runner handicap at Newbury. The general place terms are four places, however, SkyBet has enhanced the place market to six places. Because we get four places with sixteen or more runners on a handicap, the place market is four places on Betfair Exchange.

- The strategy is to try to find a horse closely priced between the SkyBet prices and the Betfair prices, then go back with SkyBet and “lay off” the bet with Betfair.
- If the horse finishes 5th or 6th, you collect your each-way bet from SkyBet, but you also collect your winning lay from Betfair Exchange because it was only four places.

The above strategy can be very profitable, however, when the horse doesn’t finish in the sweet spot (5th or 6th), you will lose a small bit of your stake. For example, let’s assume you bet £50 each way – by the time you lay off on Betfair Exchange the “qualifying loss” will probably be between £15 and £20,

## What does EW 1 4 mean?

Each Way Terms with a Non Runner – 4 places at 1/4 odds This means you will be paid for your win part of your bet at the odds chosen when you placed the bet and for the place part of your bet at 1/4 of your odds.

## What is each-way on bet365?

An Each Way bet consists of two separate bets. Your total stake will be halved between a win and a place bet. If your selection places in the Grand National, your returns will be based on the place bet. If your selection wins, your returns will include both the win and place bets.

#### What does each-way 1 5 mean?

Each Way Terms with a Non Runner – 3 places at 1/5 odds This means you will be paid for your win part of your bet at the odds chosen when you placed the bet and for the place part of your bet at 1/5 of your odds.

### How many horses do you need for an each-way bet?

Each-Way Betting On Horse Races With 5-7 Runners – In horse races where there are five, six, or seven runners, bookmakers will normally pay each-way on two places at ¼ odds. For example, if you had £10 each-way on a horse at 4/1 that finished first, you would have £10 win at 4/1 and £10 place at even-money (¼ of 4/1).

#### Why am I losing money on each-way bet?

How is an each way bet paid? – If you place an each way bet and your horse wins, both the win and place parts of your bet will pay out. However, if your horse only places and doesn’t win, you’ll lose the win part of your bet, and only the place part of your bet will pay out.

### Is bet doubling illegal?

It’s not illegal, and casinos don’t ban it (possibly because it offers the casino a better house edge). The legality of the Martingale double bet system isn’t something you should be worried about as it is simply a bet management strategy and does not affect the outcome of the casino game being played.

#### How does a 2.50 each-way bet work?

Remember when placing an each-way bet that your stake is doubled, as you have to cover your win bet and place bet. So if you enter £2.50 as your stake, the total bet will actually cost you £5.

### What does $10 each-way mean?

Each Way Betting in Horse Racing – Horse racing is by far the most popular sport for E/W betting. One of the main reasons for this is that fields will vary massively in terms of ability, which means that betting odds from the favorite to the underdogs is larger than most. The example above is taken from a race at Punchestown and as you can see, pays 1/5 of the odds for the top 4 finishes for the place bet. The odds for Angelo Dundee to win are +1000 and a $10 E/W bet ($20 total stake) will have $10 on at +1000 for the win and $10 on at +200 for the place.

### Can you lose a 3 way bet?

A 3-way bet is a bet on an event that has three possible outcomes: Team A wins, Team B wins, or a draw. The odds on a 3-way bet will always be higher than odds on a similar two-way bet considering there is an additional outcome. Therefore, when one places a 3-way bet there is only one way to win and two ways to lose.

## What is the 3 bet rule?

Commonly used to refer to an initial reraise before the flop. The term has its origins in fixed-limit games where an initial raise is worth two bets, then the reraise is equal to three and so on. Similarly in no-limit games the big blind is the first (forced) bet, the first raise is the second, and the first reraise a “three-bet.” After that, the next reraise is called a “four-bet” and so on.

### How does each-way get calculated?

Each Way Betting In Summary – An each way bet is a bet made up of two parts: a WIN bet and a PLACE bet. Two bets of equal amounts are made; the first on a selection (horse) to win and the second on the same selection to place. A ‘win’ obviously means that the horse finishes the race first.

## Do corals pay out on 5th place?

– Here are some examples of how the Coral Extra Places works:

- So if your horse finishes 3rd on an extra places race and we usually pay out for 2 places, the place part of any Each Way bet will still be paid out.
- So if your horse finishes 4th on an extra places race and we usually pay out for 3 places, the place part of any Each Way bet will still be paid out.
- So if your horse finishes 5th on an extra places race and we usually pay out for 4 places, the place part of any Each Way bet will still be paid out.
- So if your horse finishes 6th on an extra places race and we usually pay out for 5 places, the place part of any Each Way bet will still be paid out.

For some big horse racing festivals, the Coral Extra Places betting promotion might payout an additional two places in addition to the standard EW terms.
