One of the big appeals with greyhound racing is its quick nature. The races are short, sharp and punters often get paid out within minutes of the race finishing.
Tab.com.au conduct many greyhound meetings on a daily basis from Australia and New Zealand, so if chasing is your game, then we've got you covered at TAB Sportsbet.
There are heaps of bet types you can place when having a bet on the greyhounds - Win, Place, Quinella, Exacta, Trifecta, First 4, BIG6, Running Double and Daily Double.
Whatever bet type you fancy you can be sure that TAB Sportsbet has very competitive markets, odds and prices on greyhound racing.
Tote and Fixed Odds
At tab.com.au we offer punters a choice when placing their greyhound bets - Tote or Fixed Odds.
When betting on the Tote, you pool your money with other punters and the price and odds of each greyhound changes with the weight of money for each runner.
Fixed Odds betting is exactly that - you get a fixed price for your greyhound when placing a bet, and that price won't change unless there is a scratching in a race, in which case, there will be a slight deduction.
Tote betting is offered on all meetings covered by TAB Sportsbet but Fixed Odds betting is usually covered on 8-10 meetings a week.

Greyhound racing odds - the factors
There are a few factors that determine what price a greyhound will start at.
Which box number a greyhound starts from is extremely important to punters. The speed at which a dog will jump out of the boxes goes a long way to determining whether they will finish in the three or not. Therefore, good beginners in suitable boxes tend to be a punters pal when betting on the dogs.
Before hitting the races, some greyhounds will be taken to the trials to get some fitness into them before they hit the track. A good performance at the trials could indicate the greyhound is ready to win, and therefore, its price will be shorter than expected.
Naturally, a heavy and wet track will effect the performance of certain dogs. The condition of the track can also affect times in trials, making the weather's influence on greyhound betting odds all the more substantial.
This is one of the most important factors in deciding greyhound racing odds. Put simply, a dog who has performed well in recent races will have shorter odds, while those that haven't - or indeed those that haven't raced much at all - will have longer odds.
