What is a Each-Way Bet?

Each-way betting is a popular type of bet in horse racing and other sports. It combines two separate wagers: one for the selection to win, and another for the selection to place. The key benefits include:

  • Win Component: If your selection wins, both parts of your each-way bet are successful.
  • Place Component: If your selection finishes in a place position (normally top 2, 3, or 4), you still receive a return on your place bet.

This type of betting increases your chances of getting a return on your stake, even if your selection doesn’t win outright. It’s particularly useful in events with larger fields or where the outcome is unpredictable.

To illustrate, a £10 each-way bet (total £20) on a horse at 10/1 would yield significant profits if the horse wins, and smaller profits if it only places. Each-way bets offer an appealing blend of risk and reward for bettors looking to hedge their bets.
