Cheltenham Best Offers
With Cheltenham starting on Tuesday, each year the offers in shops and online get more and more competitve to the point that some races virtualy offer an under round or the concessions are so good that it should be hard to lose money.
The explosion in offers started 4 or 5 years ago when bet365 blew everyone else out of the water. On top of their best odds guaraneed service, and 4/1 winner offer, they went best industry place from 10am on the day of the race on every horse. So if you back a horse with bet365 you know it's the best price out there. With such a muggy database, they still win money and their turnover goes through the roof, depriving other bookmakers of turnover. It's predatory pricing and has turned out to be a genius move by the Coates family. In response, the other bookmakers offer very good offers to try and counter this. Here's a summary of all the offers for existing customers.
Bet365 industry best price offer is against Ladbrokes, William Hill, Paddy Power, Coral, Sky Bet and Boylesports.
