Laying horses is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of gambling thanks to the growing popularity of betting exchanges such as betfair. But how many people actually make any real money while laying horses? Not many, and that is why in this article I am going to be sharing some of the best systems and highlighting some of the major pitfalls you will face when you tart laying off horses.To many new betting enthusiasts laying horses can seem really easy. For example in an 8 horse race you will have 7 horses running for you. But obviously life will never make things that easy for you. One system that people tend to go towards is to lay the favourite in a race. This is because the favourite will only win 33% of the time. This means that you will need to get odds of less than 2/1 if you really want to make profit. Often this is just not doable and you will find yourself losing if you lay the favourites indiscriminantly.So what is the best way to make money?well the best way is to identify horses that are favorites on the book but which in reality have little to no chance of winning. An example could be where the field in a race are pretty weak so the favourite horse will only be what is perceived to be the best of a bad bunch. Obviously this horse still has not much chance of winning so is a good choice to lay off.
