March 26th: Greyhound Betting Tips & Predictions

Hello to all the greyhound betting fanatics tuning into this write-up, and welcome back to MyBettingAustralia! After seeing success last week with our best bet of the day, that now takes us to a 3 win streak on these bets, and I am hoping that we can extend that streak this week with another greyhound betting prediction or 2!

And like always, I plan to provide those tuning in to this article with a few more greyhound betting predictions that I fancy this week, along with some of the key tricks and insights I have picked up on over time when it comes to greyhound betting.

Further to this, I have also scoured through the Aussie betting scene to assess how different bookmakers compare when it comes to their respective greyhound betting offerings. With that in mind, I have identified a few bookies in particular that are strong in this space, and you can check out those names at the end of this greyhound betting guide. But for now, lets get right into the thick of it with my greyhound betting tips and predictions below!

Best Bet of the Day:

Greyhound: #5 Lil Miss Miles
Odds: $2.40
Race: Casino, Race 4 [7:56pm AEST]
Trainer: Craig Gardoll
Form: 323112

Why it's our pick: Here it is, punters! I'm backing #5 Lil Miss Miles to win at $2.40 for my best bet of the day!

She's a consistent young greyhound with impressive early speed, which, despite needing some luck at the start, positions her as a formidable contender in my view. Additionally, it is worth noting that her recent form is solid - winning two of her last three races, and this is always good to see!

And while she did finish 2nd last time out at Grafton, I do not believe that being beaten over there overshadows her potential. So, given her ability to perform well with the right conditions, I'm confident she has what it takes to win today, in what looks to be the right conditions!

Next Best Bet of the Day:

Greyhound: #1 Take On Will
Odds: $2.10
Race: Gosford, Race 7 [9:14pm AEST]
Trainer: Wayne Attwill
Form: 321448

Why it's our pick: I'm choosing #1 Take On Will to win at $2.10 for my next best bet today. Despite a last-place finish in his most recent outing, I see potential, not a problem. That race involved a more challenging field of contenders and harsher conditions in general, so I don't want to look at this as the be all and end all!

What's key for me though, is his performance before the break, winning over this distance in a swift 22.00. If he's close to that form today, I'm confident he'll take the win, and something tells me he might just showcase that speed for us all to see once more!

Bonus Best Pick for the Day:

Greyhound: #8 Federal Remark
Odds: $2.00
Race: Townsville, Race 3 [8:23pm AEST]
Trainer: Bradley Belford
Form: 761423

Why it's our pick: I'm locking in #8 Federal Remark to win at $2.00 as my bonus best pick for the day. His latest effort landing him a 3rd place over 498m right here, though beaten by 6 lengths (29.32) behind Good Odds Digger, doesn't tell the whole story. 

Sure, he was outpaced, but it was a Grade 5 clash, and he was up against some stiff competition. What matters more to me is how consistently well he's been performing. Now, finding himself well placed in today's lineup, he looks like the greyhound everyone has to beat!

His sharp odds scream confidence, and I share that sentiment. Everything about his recent races suggests he's on the cusp of something great. So, if he can channel that same energy and maybe push a little harder, I'm betting we'll see him out in front, proving why he's the leading contender!

Bonus Next Best Pick for the Day:

Greyhound: #1 Backline Pie
Odds: $2.90
Race: Gosford, Race 6 [8:50pm AEST]
Trainer: Geoffrey Grimwood
Form: 262311

Why it's our pick: Moving on, I've got my eyes on #1 Backline Pie to win at $2.90 as my bonus next best pick for today. Last week, he was swift off the mark from box 1, cruising to victory, and with a spot on the rails this time, I think that is more than ideal, setting him up as the frontrunner from the get-go!

Additionally, I think Backline Pie's back-to-back wins here, especially the latest in 34.60 over 603m, show he's in top form. With his knack for clean starts, I'm confident he'll be leading the pack again. Backline Pie is primed to shine, and I'm here for it!

The Winning Formula – Picking Your Greyhound:

Okay, punters! Are you ready level up on your greyhound betting game? Well, let us now dig into the key factors and strategies that can turn a guess into an educated bet. Welcome to the art of (hopefully) picking a winning greyhound! 

  • Form Matters: Diving into the world of greyhound racing, I quickly learned the importance of form. It's about deciphering which greyhound has been lighting up the tracks recently versus those trailing behind. It's not just numbers though; but rather it's the story of their recent journeys on the track, and the context on why a certain greyhound has or has not been so successful recently.
  • Race Class Is Key: I have also found that understanding the level at which a greyhound competes is also notable when it comes to trying to pick a winner. It's akin to assessing whether a young footy player is up for the AFL level challenge or rather should stick to dominating the VFL. This insight can significantly influence betting decisions, and certainly has in my experience!
  • Speed Can't Be Ignored: The essence of greyhound racing lies in its speed. And with that, monitoring speed out the box, sectional times and overall race performance has become another key factor for me when it comes to identifying the top contenders.
  • Track Conditions Matter: Additionally, every track has its own personality, affecting outcomes in ways I hadn't imagined some time ago. Some greyhounds thrive under specific conditions, turning them into favourites or dark horses based on their compatibility with the track's nuances.
  • Sniffing out the Value: And finally, another important factor for me here is that my opinion matches the odds in the market. Some bets have turned out to be very profitable because I've been able to find times when my research shows that the bookies have undervalued a greyhound!

So, to bring this all together, let's wrap this up with an example. Imagine we've got a greyhound named 'Thunder Bolt', who's been running impressively with recent form of 1123. Additionally, in looking further into this contender, we discover that he's moving down a class, has some of the quickest sectional times, and has a knack for shining on the track he's about to race on. His past performances are also pretty commendable, and the betting odds for a win seem quite appealing, even if there isn’t an extreme amount of value.

As such, with all of this in mind, it looks as though 'Thunder Bolt' stands out as a promising choice! It's crucial to remember, though, that there's no such thing as a sure bet, but what I will say is, that by paying attention to these key factors above, well, this can greatly enhance your betting prospects!

From the Tracks to Triumph – Australia’s Elite Greyhound Trainers of 2023-2024:

Now, punters! I am keen to take you on a journey to explore the different in-form trainers that have seen the most metropolitan track success in the past year. And while I don't think it is wise to look at a trainers record as a determining factor when it comes to greyhound betting, I nonetheless understand the insights it can provide in the hopes of making the most informed betting decisions as possible!

So, without further ado, take a look below at a list I have complied of Top Greyhound Trainers' at varying Metropolitan Tracks from 26/03/2023 - 26/03/2024:

Trainer NameTotal Runs%1st’s%2nd’s%3rd’s
Thomas DAILLY100715.89%16.19%13.21%
Mark DELBRIDGE47418.35%13.71%12.87%
Jeffrey BRITTON36618.03%13.39%17.76%
Jason THOMPSON22024.09%17.73%10.45%
Correy GRENFELL28016.07%16.43%10.36%

Wow, now isn't that an impressive list of trainers we've got on our hands! And I think it’s fair to say that every trainer on this Aussie list has proven their worth, consistently producing top-dog performances in their respective races. However, as I mentioned before, this information in isolation is just not enough - there is always more to the story!

So, to all you punters out there, don't just rely on the trainer's name alone. Keep your eyes peeled, do your homework, and factor in all aspects of the race. A great trainer backing a greyhound is a good sign indeed, but it's not the whole shebang. And as such, remember, in this game, every detail counts. Be alert, be smart, and good luck out there on the tracks!

Discover Your Winning Edge: Extra Resources for Greyhound Betting:

As they say, the more tools in your shed, the better equipped you'll be! And with that in mind, I want to note that outside the insightful content we offer here at MyBettingAustralia, there is at least one more additional resource which I reckon might be worth your attention. Let’s take a look!

The Watchdog platform is essentially a free app and website designed for the greyhound enthusiasts out there! It's a comprehensive guide for Aussie greyhound races, complete with form analysis, live race streaming, race replays, and the ability to save your favourite dogs and trainers, etc. I have also found that the expert tips provided over there can be more than useful when it comes to having a sound greyhound betting strategy, and by extension, having success when it comes to greyhound betting!

Remember though punters, betting is not just about intuition or luck, but also about proper planning and informed decision-making. So, with that in mind, I hope that this resource can be a valuable tool when it comes to levelling up your greyhound betting game, but I definitely do not recommend using it in isolation!
