Trifectas usually pay bigger than quinielas at the dog track. So why would I want to bet quinielas, you ask? Why would anyone want to play them when they could win much more with a trifecta bet?
Well, for that matter, superfectas, Pick-Sixes and other exotic bets pay more than trifectas, so why doesn’t everyone just play them instead of trifectas? You know the reason, although you might not have completely thought the whole thing through yet.
You can play a four-dog quiniela box for $ 12. A four-dog trifecta box will cost you double that – $ 24. You chances of hitting a quiniela with four dogs are much better than your chances of hitting a trifecta with four dogs.
A quiniela, as you probably know, is the dog who finishes first with the dog who finishes second. Unlike the exacta, where you have to pick the dogs in the exact order of finish, with a quiniela, you can have the dogs in either order.
As long as you have the first two dogs to cross the finish line, you win.
What does the average quiniela pay? Well, that depends on your track takeout, the odds of the two dogs and the order they finish in. But at most tracks, the average quiniela pays between $ 12 and $ 24. Once in awhile, there are much bigger and much smaller quinielas, but that’s the average payout.
Obviously, in order to make money with quinielas, you have to hit enough to pay for your $ 12 box bet with enough profit to cover the races where you bet but don’t hit the quiniela. This isn’t as hard as you might think it is.
If you have a system that narrows down the likely contenders, such as the Graded Greyhound Handicapping System, the Two Key Trifecta System or the Marks Method, you have a very good chance of picking the quiniela in most races.
Or, if you’re pretty good at greyhound handicapping, yourself, you should be able to pick a quiniela often enough to be ahead of the game at your favorite track. The trick with betting quinielas is to pick them often enough so that your losses are covered by your wins. It’s as simple as that.
