What is a Single Bet?

Everyone knows what a single bet is - it's the classic win/lose scenario. If your selection wins then you're in the money, if it loses then it's all gone. You can also place a single bet each-way, which means you'll be placing two bets (notice your Total Stake double when you select the Each Way option). The first bet is the same as a standard bet on the selection winning; the second bet is on the selection finishing in the top places and will be at a fraction of the standard odds. You can set that fraction in the calculator below.

So what is a value bet, and how can you identify one? Well, it simply means a bet priced at odds that mean you'll win more than you lose longterm. How to find one? Painstaking research is one method. Another is analysing the market to spot odds movements and identify bookies that haven't moved their prices in line with the rest of the market. That's the technique we use here, and you'll find a list of recommendations below for Single bets based on that.
