How to Bet on The Grand National 2018

Whether you’re an old hand or new to betting on the Grand National, bettingxpert has you covered with a complete guide to Grand National betting in 2018. We explain all the essential betting questions so you can enjoy one of the greatest sporting occasions in the world. We understand that Grand National betting can seem a little daunting, especially if you’re a first time bettor. We'll run through the two main types of bets on the Grand National 2018 to give you the ultimate head start!

How to Bet to Win on The Grand National 2018

Betting on a horse to win the Grand National couldn’t be easier. Let’s take it in three simple steps:

  • Choose Your Horse

Whether you’ve studied the form, heard some inside knowledge or quite simply like the jockey’s colours, choose a horse you want to win the Grand National. You don’t just have to pick one, you can pick two, three, four or even all forty if you want!

  • Decide How Much You Want to Bet

How much do you want to bet on your horse? Remember, placing a bet on a horse to win the Grand National 2018 is just one bet. So if you have a £10 note in your purse or pocket and want to place all of it on your bet, that will be a total of £10 on a horse to win.

  • Decide How You’re Going to Bet

There are several options on how to bet on the Grand National. In shop, on the telephone, online or on the racecourse. Let’s take them separately.

  • In Shop - If you’re going into a shop you will need to pick up a betting slip. These will be readily available on the day of the Grand National, have a look on the tables or just ask a cashier if you can’t find them. Once you have your Grand National betting slip, write ‘Grand National’ on your slip, write the name of your horse and the amount you want to bet.
  • Online - In order to bet online you will need an account. If you don’t have a bookmaker account, you can check out a wide range of options with great offers here. To place a bet, select the Grand National race. Click on the odds of your horse (normally to the right of the horses name) and you will see a bet slip appear on the right hand side of your screen. You can now enter the amount you would like to bet on your horse and click ‘bet’. Congratulations, you have your Grand National 2018 bet on!
  • By Telephone - To bet on the phone, you will need a bookmaker account. Simply ring the number of your bookmaker and tell them your horse name, race (Grand National) and how much you wish to bet. They will do the rest!
  • On Course - If you’re on the racetrack, have your money ready in your hand. Walk up to your bookmaker and state the bet you would like ‘£10 win’ and the horse name ‘Many Clouds’. The bookmaker will take your money, produce your slip and you’re on. “£10 win on Many Clouds please” – he’ll know exactly what you mean.

How to Bet Each-Way on the Grand National 2018

What is an Each-Way bet?

Quite simply, an each-way bet is two bets wrapped up into one. An each-way bet is made up of a bet to win and a bet to place. Let’s put this into practice.

You have £10 in your pocket. You want to bet on Many Clouds to win the Grand National but you would like to win some money if he finishes second, third, fourth or fifth. No problem, an each-way bet is for you.

Unlike a win bet, each way bets pay you a return if your horse finishes in the places and that’s why its two bets – one to win and one to place.

How Do I Place an Each-Way Bet on The Grand National?

To place an each way bet on the Grand National 2018, follow the exact same steps as mentioned above but include:

  • In Shop - When you’ve written your horse name, odds and Grand National 2018 on your slip, make sure you write ‘Each Way’ or ‘E/W’/. This tells the cashier to split your total stake (ie. £10) into two bets (£5 to win and £5 to place).

  • Online - Tick the each way box on your betslip and this will automatically work out your total stake. Use the boxes to adjust the amount you’d like to bet.

  • By Telephone - Tell the operator that you would like the bet to be each way and they will do the rest.

  • On Course - When you go up to your bookmaker, say to him or her “£5 each way on Many Clouds”. Pass the £10 over to your bookmaker and the slip will tell you exactly what you will receive if your horse wins or places.

After following all these steps, you should know have your bet placed so you’re ready to cheer and scream home the winner of the Grand National – hopefully yours!

Grand National 2018 Betting Odds

Understanding the odds is an important part of placing your bet. The best time to get your Grand National bets on is early, generally on the morning of the day. The Grand National is one of the toughest horse races in the world to win so you’re always very likely to have a double figure horse, say 10/1 or bigger. If you back the current favourite for the Grand National at 20/1 for £10 you would get £200 (20 x £10) and your £10 back making a whopping £210.
