Do you enjoy the thrill of trying to win big bucks from horse racing parlays costing only a matter of cents? We hear you. At RacingPicks, our free picks are also designed to help you find a combination of horses that all have a reasonable chance of winning on the same day. The odds of a horse racing parlay are calculated by multiplying the odds of each selection together, helping you to generate big payouts from tiny stakes. Even if you like building your own horse racing parlays you can use our free parlay picks to try and enhance the quality of your selections.
If you don’t like the low strike rate that parlays can sometimes yield, why not consider some of our free double picks? This involves our handicappers finding two horses that have strong chances to win or place. You’ll then have to place an eachway double bet, covering you if both horses place and if both horses win their races. It’s sometimes possible to get good each way double odds, particularly when races with big fields offer up to five places each way.
Don’t forget, if you are serious about your betting on US horse racing and races overseas, at RacingPicks we also offer Expert Picks. These offer even more insight and analysis into our selections.
