With the introduction of betting on the internet, and the growth in exchange betting, there are now so many ways of placing a bet that it can become confusing for the beginner. This book is a compilation of all the major betting terms and types you might come across while placing a bet. Laid out in an A-Z format, the main focus is on the types of bets you can have in the betting shop, or at the racetrack, plus account betting on the net from home. It includes: an A-Z glossary of betting terminology; a guide to betting odds slang; taking a price v starting price; betting percentages tables; a ready reckoner; website glossary of major bookmakers; exchanges and odds comparison sites; exchange betting; sports betting; numbers betting; spread betting; and gamcare.
Jim Cremin is the Editor of the Racing Post's Greyhound section as well as being their leading commentator on bookmakers. John Quinn is William Hill's expert on betting history.
