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.

UNDER 75.5 – “This looks to be one of the most straight forward BSP markets to date with four races on the card i’m extremely confident in producing a $6 or less result with the shorter priced favourites most likely to take the races out. Overall, there are only two main races where I can see a blowout recorded and even if one of those does strike i’m still confident of us landing the unders. For the record, one of those races is the last of the day… so it may pay to hedge out going into the last'”

UNDER 75.5 – “Marwood & Mr Individual look very well placed in the opener. Outside Ken’s Dream race two looks a raffle, luck in running could hold the key here. The JRA cup is very even with the mare Real Love forced to lump 58kg. The 955m challenge is another even contest and could provide a big boost to ‘overs’ bettors. Hard to see an upset result in the Stutt Stakes and the race history favours horses hard in the market. I’ve marked Don’t Doubt Mamma favourite, she won the Let’s Elope on the worst part of the track. Despite not winning at a mile to date, she acquitted herself very well in the Sandown Guineas behind Mahuta last year. I can’t see an upset in the Moir Stakes, it’s simply the class of Chautauqua or the feather weight advantage 3yo Extreme Choice gets off the champ that wins this. In the last race Sir Bacchus maps very awkwardly from barrier three. Sebring Sun gets his chance dropping back to 1200m but outside that runner a knockout result is definitely possible.”

OVER 75.5 – “The line looks close to the mark Friday night. I’m leaning to overs in the hope of an early result. I’m happy to lay the favoured runners in each of the first four races. This where there is a probability that the line could be blown apart early by a long priced winner. The feature races of the night should see the favoured runners whom are seeking greater riches in Spring hit the wire. I can’t see anything outside of the fav’s winning the Stutt, the Stocks looks a race in three and in the Moir, if the Chautauqua misses the winner will still be under double figure odds. The final race of the night could easily see a double figure result to cover the total.”

UNDER 75.5 – “Race 1 , Mr Individual looks well placed at short odds.In Race 2 looks main chances are in the market. Race 3 is wide open race .Race 4 could provide an upset . Hard to see something outside the market winning race 5. Race 6 looks a race in 3 , Rising Romance, Miss Rose de Lago, and Don’t Doubt Mamma. Extreme Choice looks only danger to Chautauqua. Race 8 could see a result.”
