Melbourne Cup Odds

Melbourne Cup odds are not just pulled out of thin air, and knowing the factors that influence the odds will help you place a smarter bet at online bookies like Ladbrokes.com.au.

The 2014 Melbourne Cup odds will change based on factors such as how horses run in prep races, any injuries the top contenders take, and the weights assigned to each runner. Punters who keep on top of the information can use it to make smarter bets.

2014 Melbourne Cup Odds

The 2014 Melbourne Cup odds will change many times in the lead up to the race, but you will get the best odds by betting early.

Australia’s leading online bookie bookmaker.com.au already have futures Melbourne Cup odds open on the likely entries.

Melbourne Cup Bets 2014

Too many people stick to just win, place or each-way bets when they bet on the Melbourne Cup. It is especially sad to see this on race day when the odds have become ridiculously short. When placing your bet this year, think beyond the 2014 Melbourne Cup odds for a straight-up win bet and consider placing an exotic bet.

True, it is harder to accurately pick a quinella, exacta, Melbourne Cup trifecta, or box bet. However, the upshot of these bets is that they pay much more than a standard win bet.

Try betting online if you think that placing a Melbourne Cup 2013 exotic bet is too difficult. Online betting sites are designed with ease of use in mind, and most beginners understand how online betting interfaces work within a couple of minutes.
