How to calculate ROI for lay and back bets

Hi Chris, I see you are giving out free lay service tips but can you also explain why you are laying these horses? Many thanks.

Answer: Hey there,

I'm Chris, and I'm the author of the Daily Lay tips service. I'm glad you're interested in using my tips, and I'm happy to explain why I'm laying these horses.

First, let's talk about what it means to lay a horse. When you lay a horse, you're essentially betting that it will lose. This is the opposite of betting on a horse to win, which is called backing a horse.

There are a few reasons why I might lay a horse. First, I might think that the horse is overpriced. This means that the odds of the horse winning are higher than they should be. For example, if a horse is 2-1 to win, but I think it should only be 3-1, I might lay it.

Second, I might think that the horse is not in good form. This could be because the horse has been injured, or because it has not been running well recently. For example, if a horse has not won in its last three races, I might be more likely to lay it.

Third, I might think that the horse is not suited to the track or the distance. For example, if a horse has only ever won over short distances, I might be more likely to lay it in a long race.

Finally, I might think that the horse is not the best horse in the race. This could be because the horse is up against more experienced horses, or because the horse is not as well-trained as the other horses.

Of course, there is no guarantee that any of these horses will lose. Betting on horse racing is always a risk, but I believe that my tips can help you to reduce the risk and increase your chances of winning.

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks,
Chris

Overview - the daily lay tips are provided free every day on the website. The tips offered are usually very low priced in the market, typically averaging less than evens at industry starting price.

The tips are drawn from the UK and Irish horse racing industry and posted on the website the evening before the next day's racing.

The rewards: For anyone using the selections the fact that they are posted the night before the event means they have ample time to obtain the best prices available on the betting exchanges.

They also have plenty of time to make their own assessments of the relative merits of each selected tip.

The risks: Betting on the outcome of horse races is inherently a risky enterprise however the Daily Lay tips can reduce the size of any loss as they are often short priced false favourites.

I utilise my own staking plan with your free tips and I'm doing very well indeed. Many thanks.
Just one suggestion.
You should consider putting the most recent results last as it's easier to navigate. Takes forever to scroll through to the most recent ones. Regards!

Answer: Ok I have changed the order as requested although there's a shortcut to scroll to the bottom of the results sheet: ctrl+F and search for the required date.

Results Spreadsheet
by: Anonymous

How comes here you are saying that you are about +230 in profit, but on the spreadsheet shows -230

Answer: When a selection loses the race (i.e. it is a successful lay bet) it is recorded as minus 1. Therefore the greater the minus the greater the profit.

Hi,
In the results spreadsheet, why are some of the selections stated as 0.00 and don't appear to have been included in the overall calculations?

Answer: As stated at the first line of results "NB A "0" entry in the Return column indicates either a non runner or a discarded potential selection"

Paper Betting
by: Allan M

Hello Chris.
I've only recently discovered your free lay tips, and I hope you don't mind, but at the moment, I'm just paper betting. I know better than to chase losses, but seeing your results so far, I think I'll be betting 1% of my betting bank on each of your tips. I'm only into week 2 of paper betting and wondered if you think my strategy would be wise, or if you would recommend a different betting strategy.

Reply: That's a sound betting strategy so stick to it for awhile, regards, Chris
Thank's for reading.

P & L and Filters
by: Chris

Interim results report ref filters:

Points profit on 28th August since the start of filters 23 days ago on 5th August is 25 points.

Points profit 23 days prior to the 5th August is minus 7 points.

So although the prior period had some bad losses the application of filters does seem to improve the overall profitablity.

I pay particular attention to short priced runners of Willie Mullins, Aidan O'Brien, William Haggas et al.

I have no doubt that additional filters may well up your strike rate but there has to be a balance between that and actually having some volume left IMO. Still, we'll see how it goes.

I see you have added a P&L which you appear to be regularly updating, which is great. I see you make mention of industry starting price. Presumably you mean BSP? I don't suppose you have a spreadsheet of your lays?!

Is there any opinion on when it is best to take a price? Early or at the off?

by: Anonymous

Knowing where you get your horses to lay from, I'm not surprised that a high percentage wins. Nowt wrong with that, though. You have helped me enormously by pointing out the obvious that in-running laying at around 1.2 will give 5 bets X £10 for £50 outlay with only £10 at risk if every horse wins (Which isn't often) If a horse runs a stinker and doesn't hit the price in running then my stake is returned. Great stuff.

So you don't lay McCoy (retired 2015) or Ruby Walsh (retired 2019) over the jumps. And you avoid laying Hughes (retired 2014) on the flat. Sound.

Odds strategy
by: Paul

Hi there, being new to this game, I'm still trying to develop my strategy.

I'm tentative to lay anything over 3.0, the theory being that based on the general average of 35% winning favourites, if I were to win 2 lays for every loss, I would be in profit.

Based on £10 lays, a 2.5 odds loss would lose £15 liability, but 2 £10 stakes would provide a £5 profit regardless.

Naturally, any loss under 2.0 would be covered by 1 £10 stake win. This is of course relying on meeting the general average of favourites wins/losses.
Do you think this potential strategy has any credibility or do I need a rethink.

The obvious drawback to this strategy would be less choice.

Any advice, as always, very much appreciated.

Kind regards

Paul

Answer: Setting a price limit is a good idea with these lay tips - 2.0 decimal odds would be a good start

Answers to Comments
by: Chris

Sorry I have not replied sooner guys but I have been very busy.

My strategy comments should be viewed mainly as a general guide. If low odds warrant a bet then go for it.

To place lay bets on more than one selection e.g. today we have

Mighty River 18:30 - Chelmsford
Kingsley Pride 18:30 - Chelmsford

Betfair offers a built in calculator - select both horses then click liability button - click liabilty and a max liabilty box pops up - enter 100 and click ok - the stakes required to make a profit are then filled in for you.
