What is an Each Way Bet?

An each way bet is a wager that consists of two separate bets: a ‘win bet’ and a ‘place bet’. The win bet requires the selection to win the event, while the place bet requires the selection to finish within a predetermined number of positions, typically ranging from the first two to the first four, depending on the event and bookmaker’s terms. Each way bets are commonly used in horse racing and golf tournaments, where predicting the outright winner can be more challenging.

How Each Way Bets Work

To place an each way bet, a bettor chooses a selection and places an equal stake on both the win and place bets. The total stake for an each way bet is, therefore, twice the stake of a single bet. If the selection wins the event, both the win and place bets are successful. If the selection only places, only the place bet is successful, while the win bet is lost.

For example, let’s assume a bettor wants to place a $10 each way bet on a horse with the following odds:

  • Win odds: 10.00
  • Place odds (1/4 of win odds): 2.50

The total stake for this each way bet would be $20 ($10 for the win bet and $10 for the place bet). If the horse wins, the bettor would receive:

  • Win bet payout: $10 x 10.00 = $100
  • Place bet payout: $10 x 2.50 = $25
  • Total payout: $125

If the horse only places, the bettor would receive:

  • Win bet: Lost
  • Place bet payout: $10 x 2.50 = $25

Advantages of Each Way Bets

  1. Increased Chances of Success: Each way bets provide a higher probability of success compared to win-only bets, as they cover more potential outcomes.
  2. Lower Risk: The place bet portion of an each way bet serves as a form of insurance, mitigating potential losses in case the selection fails to win but still places.
  3. Versatility: Each way bets can be applied to a variety of events and sports, making them a flexible betting option for different scenarios.

Tips for Placing Each Way Bets

  1. Research: Conduct thorough research on the event and participants to make informed predictions. Examine factors such as form, track conditions, and head-to-head statistics.
  2. Assess the Field: Each way bets are most effective in events with large fields or uncertain outcomes. Assess the competitiveness of the field to determine if an each way bet is appropriate.
  3. Compare Bookmaker Terms: Different bookmakers may offer varying place terms and odds. Comparing these terms ensures you get the best value for your each way bet.


Each Way bets offer a versatile and lower-risk betting option for bettors looking to increase their chances of success in events with many runners or uncertain outcomes. By conducting comprehensive research, assessing the competitiveness of the field, and comparing bookmaker terms, you can enhance your chances of success and make the most of your each way betting experience.
