Extra Place Matcher

Extra Place Matcher

This is an advanced tool which takes making money from each way betting to the next level. An each way bet is essentially 2 separate bets: one on the horse to win and one on the same horse to be ‘placed’. For a horse to be placed, it needs to finish in the top 1-4 runners, based on the number of horses in the race.

If there are 16 horses in a race, there’ll usually be 4 places to be paid. (This depends on the bookmaker and number of runners).

Sometimes though, bookmakers choose to pay an extra place. For example, bookies who usually pay 4 places might up the offer to pay out on 5. This will always be one extra place on the Betfair lay market, meaning that there’s potentially a huge pay out to be made.

The Extra Place Matcher has been designed to help you maximise your profits from extra place races. It sorts and presents all of the data clearly, showing the highest rated horses at the top and is best used for backing and laying the best-priced horses in a race.

Find your match

If there’s a plus sign next to the horse, that means there are other matches available. These will be at a lower rating than the top selection, which is why they weren’t shown initially, but you can still pick them.

See which bookmakers are offering extra places on a particular horse and quickly jump on the odds.


Save your bets

Once you’ve placed a bet, you can save the selection by clicking the floppy disc icon. Who remembers those?! Your saved races will be stored under the ‘My Bets’ tab.

See which horse/bookmaker combinations you’ve already matched and then quickly check back after the race has been run to see if any of your selections finished in the extra place.
