Greyhounds Spread Betting 

A typical spread might be “Total Trap numbers”. There are six dogs in each race, and if there are 10 races that would mean the highest possible number for that spread would be 60, fi all wins came from Trap6. Therefore, the spread betting company might quote their spread as 35, as players can buy or sell positions for their chosen unit stake. 

Greyhounds Trap Challenge 

A Greyhound trap Challenge bet is a bet some punters deem as a long-term bet that can last an entire meeting. Simply chose the Trap number where you think will have the most wins. Since most meetings contain an average of 12 races, it is usually possible to achieve a win when the Trap number has had 5 or more wins, sometimes even as low as four. In the event a there is a tie, you will receive a share of the wining bet. View our Trap Challenge page here.
