Grade is everything when it comes to greyhound handicapping. They’re right there on the program, but they might as well be written in Greek, because very few bettors realize their significance.
This is an example – one of many – of the importance of not getting stuck with old fashioned handicapping systems that take a one-size-fits-all approach to picking winners at the dog track.
Graded Greyhound Handicapping, on the other hand, while not an automatic system, does pick winners with a little effort and time spent learning it from the bettor. They’d keep it and be millionaires.
But how much attention does the average bettor pay to the grade of a race? Except for noticing it at the top of the program, many bettors don’t even think about what each grade means. I say, if that were true, they wouldn’t be selling the system. A greyhound handicapping system that takes no time or effort on their part. More importantly, they don’t seem to realize that each grade needs to be handicapped in a different way.. It was designed to separate the dogs into groups with similar abilities. This is exactly the wrong way to handicap one of those grades and will almost guarantee that you’ll lose your bet.
For many years, so-called “experts” have been telling us that there’s a “secret formula” that will pick winners automatically. My theory is that anyone who isn’t willing to put some time and effort into learning how to handicap the dogs, won’t do very well.
So, most of the time, bettors handicap a Grade A race the same way they handicap a Grade M race. They start out by looking for the dog that “looks better” than the other dogs. Instead, they’d make more money and cash more tickets, if they invested in a system that actually works with a little time and a little practice.
However, although it’s the wrong way to handicap an A race, it can work in M, if you know the two factors that predict how well a puppy will do in M. Like baseball, basketball and other sports, the games – or races – aren’t fair if one player -or greyhound – has a big advantage over the other ones.
