How Does Best Odds Guarantee for Cheltenham Festival Work?

odd guarantee

In addition to Non-Runner No Bet, the Best Odds Guaranteed is one of the most exciting ways to bet on horse racing, and naturally on Cheltenham Festival, arguably the biggest event throughout the National Hunt season.

When it comes to Cheltenham Festival 2017, all bets placed after 1 February 2017 qualify for NRNB & Best Odds Guaranteed with bookmakers such as Bet365 and William Hill leading the way to offer you best prices and best deals for your early selections.

Bet365 have been the first betting site to offer non-runner no bet and best odds guaranteed on the forthcoming showpiece. One of Britain’s biggest bookmakers launched its fantastic concession six weeks prior to the actual event, but don’t worry, there is still plenty of time to make sure you don’t miss out.

William Hill did not waste time in launching their own Best Odds Guaranteed facility which will have their customers experience great value through the increase of their winnings by as much as thousands of pounds simply by taking a price and guaranteeing their best odds.

So how does Best Odds Guarantee actually work?

Let’s say you back your horse racing selection in the morning by taking William Hill’s Early Price of 4/1 and the SP returns at 5/1, you will be guaranteed to bet the bigger price of 5/1. Should the SP returns at 3/1, you will still get paid at the original 4/1.

Best Odds Guaranteed works in a pretty much the same way with Bet365 as well, allowing you to take the price on your ante post selection with a bigger SP, which ultimately guarantees that Bet365 will pay you out at the bigger odds.

Best Odds Guaranteed at Bet365 include a number of different selections and are applied at many other competitions as well. You can lock them with Board Prices, Early Prices, singles, and multiples. In addition, they are active with Showcast bets on all racing with a fixed price offered.

Do keep in mind, however, that In-Play bets are excluded from the Best Odds Guaranteed concession.
