Virtual racing doubles are consistently high value +EV bets.
Assessing the value
The bookiebashing virtuals tool assesses all horses at the virtual racetracks, and applies a markup with appropriate bias. Users can quickly determine the fair odds of all horses in all races – and can quickly combine two horses to determine the value of the Betfred Virtual Double.
Betting on these can result in long losing runs due to the length of the odds and the size of the edge. On average you can expect to be betting at around 17 against fair odds of around 15.5 so you can expect to win 6.5% of the time and achieve EV of 109% over the long term.
If you look at the variance model in the tools area you can plug in the average odds and have a look at what the distribution of profits looks like over x bets and y simulations.
