One Week’s Testing Of Greyhound Lays

£297.77 To £667.78 In Seven Days

This is for a full weeks testing of my Greyhound tips and points and using BetBotPro

In fact I had started a couple of days ago with £200 but the virtual money I am using says £297.77 now. I am using virtual money here, because I have my real money actually laying live on my laptop right now. My account is private, so for this demo I will use virtual money. I am trying to win a daily profit of £50 using £4 stakes.

I am using my greyhound tips – points as they appear on my website each morning, these are the exact points that members would have been using. I can supply proof of these points if anybody wants to see them.

Laying dogs is placing a bet in the hope that this greyhound loses that race, I do not want my selection to win. I do not like to lay greyhounds when there are only five runners, and I do not lay dog’s when there are reserve’s running. 


In this seven day test, I am hoping to win £50 a day or £350 a week but things can go wrong. In the settings I have the software to stop, when a win profit for the day reaches £50 or a loss of £100 a day is matched. It is very rare that I could get three losing days in a week but it could happen. If this did happen then my win profit for the week would only be £50. I could quite easily get one losing day in a week and of course if that happened, then I would only win £250 in that week.

It is best to look at laying greyhounds on a long term basis. I would advise starting small and build a bank, even winning £10 a day would give £280 after the first month, £20 a day would give us £560 a month. I have written a full guide on how to lay greyhounds here Laying Greyhounds

Day 2 Of Testing o76qa0wsmcahfnqtk2jdd6uc0jyq2ikyga3qhow0fc - One Week's Testing Of Greyhound Lays

As can be seen in the image above the date says 01st May 2019. This is in the morning and I have made all of my selections, the software is running. You will see in this first race I have selected two greyhounds trap 3 and trap 4. As the software kicks in 60 seconds before the start of the race it will look for a matched lay bet. I have set my criteria in the settings to only lay a dog if it’s odds are between 2.0 and 8.0. It will also only lay one dog per race.

Now we are just into early afternoon and you can see in the image above, the virtual wallet now says £347.45, so the win/profit of £50 has been matched and the software has stopped.

Day 3 Of Testing o78b7hajx3sfgps92qkv8yoe2w2fsqafrs51lfnqmi - One Week's Testing Of Greyhound Lays

As can be seen in the image above I had three bets that went astray but these recovered quite well. The virtual wallet has now increased to £397.91 so all is well. 

I am using £4 stakes but £2 stakes can be used, it also deducts 20p off each lay bet because of Betfair’s commission. I reached my win/profit this morning after 17 races.

Day 4 Of Testing o79y8ca7hekd7u7ok37qg8rw7gj12vr9zy6zudmi2g - One Week's Testing Of Greyhound Lays

The virtual wallet has now increased to £451.11. Still keep getting these odd winners but the recovery software using BetBotPro is working well and the loss was recovered after 4 lays, as set in the settings. So far everything is going to plan with my greyhound tips points system and I have a profit of £153.34 after three days.

Day 5 Of Testing 53.20 o7d19pjds8nycz5cbhq0ssqricme9j0ykgg5vxbhma - One Week's Testing Of Greyhound Lays

At the end of the fourth day of testing demonstration I have now increased the bank to £508.11. I had things to do today so had to wait until the afternoon before starting today’s greyhound lays. Being that it was a Saturday, it meant there were plenty of races to choose from, over 400.

As can be seen above I have included a Youtube video this time to show how the lays were going live. After 4 days I now have a profit of £210.34 and it only took 15 races 1 hour and 40 minutes to get to this profit using £4 stakes.

Day 6 Of Testing 53.11 o7diicf2c69p1ic17t3pa9mmz0q5hjsaj999sgk2sa - One Week's Testing Of Greyhound Lays

Now at the end of the fifth day of testing my greyhound tips and points and BetBotPro. The bank has now increased to £561.22. It took 16 races to reach the win target today with just one result not going according to plan. As can be seen in the image above, no lay bets were made on the races 11:34, 11:39 and 11:42 this was because the odds were out of the set range.

Day 7 Of Testing 53.40 1 o7f5txqdxdrb0fbitltatn73t11ozu8103en7x2qsy - One Week's Testing Of Greyhound Lays

Today was a little more difficult than it should have been to reach the £50 win profit for the day. I have my settings set to stop if I was losing £150 and another losing bet after the loss of £36.12 would have stopped the software. So instead of the £614.62 total it would have been £150 less, I would have still been in profit for the week, but only about £260.

Over the course of a week though we should always be able to show a profit but, having losing days will happen, we have to accept that.

Day 8 Of Testing 53.16 o7gumegvy3krst1x9vu3j2br5mfiobjwdvrgp7i686 - One Week's Testing Of Greyhound Lays

Day 7 and the last day of testing BetBotPro with my greyhound tips and points. Again I had 3 lay bets that went unexpectedly wrong and had to be recovered. There were some quite large bets being placed to recover the loss and this is where it puts some people off. One lay bet that was being placed was over £80 just to win £4 but that is lay betting.

However, I did get a profit everyday and I hope this has shown you what can be achieved with lay betting the greyhounds.

  1. Hi Chris do you load up your selections into betbotpro with an excel .csv file? If so do you have a sample? My email is dougkbkai @ . Enjoying the results form the ratings so far. Would recommend.

  2. Hi Chris, I would also appreciate any info about loading up selections into BetbotPro each day. What are the recommended settings, etc ?
