What is Best Odds Guaranteed and why is it so important?

Best Odds Guaranteed (or BOG) means that if you place a bet and take the price on your selection – and the Starting Price (SP) is bigger, you get paid your winnings at the bigger price.


Let’s say you are looking to bet on a horse called tonythepony to win the 4.40 at Kempton. At the time of placing your bet both betfred and novibet have tonythepony priced at 8/1, but of the two firms only betfred offer Best Odds Guaranteed. Obviously you would place your bet with betfred taking the price of 8/1. If tonythepony wins and goes off at a starting price of 10/1, you get paid out at 10/1. Had you placed your bet with novibet you’d only get paid at 8/1. So it really is a no brainer! Wherever possible you should take BOG on your racing bets. There may be rare occasions when a firm like novibet might be offering a particularly attractive stand out price, where you might place a bet and not worry that they don’t offer BOG, but most of the time you will want to take it. And it’s not just the big boys who offer this now. BOG can prove extremely expensive for the bookies so hats off to the smaller firms who are also offering it, such as Quinnbet, Sportingbet and bwin.

Who has the best Horse Racing Odds?

All bookies offer betting on Horse Racing, but how do we know which ones offer the best odds, and the best odds consistently?

This all comes down to the betting “margin” which each bookie builds into their horse racing markets, and the lower the margin the better value we are getting as punters. Have a read of our Betting Margins Explained article for a full guide on how to calculate these margins quickly and easily yourself.

So, who does have the best Racing odds? Our resident stats boys compare the margins from 34 betting sites every week and calculates the averages. To ensure the numbers are fair we choose races with different field sizes and a mixture of handicaps and non-handicaps spread across various race meetings.

Margins are displayed below (the amount over 100% represents the bookies average margin for Horse Racing based on our studies, for example the figure 113.92% would mean that bookie’s average margin is 13.92%. To put it another way, using the above example the bookie can expect to pay-out £100 for every £113.92 he receives. So clearly the lower the margin % a bookie offers us the better value it is to the betting man on the street, as a bookie that pays out £100 for every £110 he takes in stake money, is offering better value (and by definition, better odds) than the bookie who pays out £100 for every £125 he takes in stake money.
