Betfair punters are able to diversify their betting with the Betfair Starting Price Index. Instead of simply Backing & Laying runners in a race, traders can Back & Lay on the BSP Index Market allowing them to take a position on the aggregate BSP value of all winners.
What is a ‘Betfair Starting Price Index’?
A BSP Index is the aggregate value of the BSP (Betfair Starting Price) of all winners over a pre-determined number of races. For example, the BSP Index at a 9 Race Card at Flemington would be the combined number of all 9 BSP winner prices after the end of the last race.

Tips From The Experts

UNDER 108.5 – “Caulfield Cup Day can be very hit and miss based on historical data with last year going well over the BSP, but the previous year fell well short of what the total would have been. I can’t help but be on the unders today based on all of the races put before us. There are blowout chances in several races on the card today such as Tris in the first, Our Ivanhowe in the main race and Famous Seamus in the last, but overall, the main chances outside of the favourites on the cards are in the $5-$20 range and I just can’t see us getting beyond the $100 mark without one of these large blowouts landing.”

OVER 108.5 – “Hard to get excited about Race 1. Small lean Skylight Glow. Like Acatour & Inside Agent, both have plenty of raw ability but will need luck off a possible slow tempo. Almighty Girl looks ready to fire first up and Super Cash was impressive this track and trip three weeks ago. Keen to lay Sebring Dream out to 2000m. The Caulfield Classic looks a ‘result race’ with Wine Bush, Rocketeer and Kent all having strong claims. It’s Somewhat looks well suited with The Cleaner in the race and Vanbrugh fits the profile as the winner but he can’t afford to miss the start. Danish Twist looks one of the better bets on the card, First Seal is on her last chance. Jameka and Sir Isaac Newton only need even luck to win the Caulfield Cup. Wild Rain can beat Hellbent in the Caulfield Sprint but it’s unlikely. The Moonga Stakes looks suited to horses in the market.”

UNDER 108.5 – “I feel like I’m living and praying to see a short favourites go down at Caulfield and it simply has not been happening, I hope that Caulfield Cup Day 2016 may be the day. The first 2 races on the card see 2 short favourite’s. Horses at odds are chances in these races. Race 3 is open but not likely throw a shock result, same goes for Race 4 & 5. Races 6, 7, 9 & 10 are skinny with runners in market likely to do well. It’s not got for racing but the Caulfield Cup is just a race, looks a race between the two locals and the internationals, another skinny result. I hope I’ve got it wrong but UNDERS again”

UNDER 108.5 – “Sylpheed , looks the goods in the first. The two sydneysiders should fight out the second. Races 3 and 4 are even and may produce a result. Race 5 should be won by horse in market.Think the favourite in race 6 is a too short as is the Race 7 favourite Typhoon Tara. The cup looks to be won by something in the market. Hellbent looks a good thing in the ninth and Voodoo Lad looks hard to hold out in the last.”
