As you probably know, Dutching is a method of staking several selections in the same race.
Stakes are calculated so that providing you hit the winner, each selection returns the same profit.

Dutching can be a very effective way of betting on a number of selections in order to show a profit, but whilst increasing the number of selections obviously increases your chance of hitting the winner, every additional selection also reduces your overall odds, and reduces your profit.

If Laying when Dutching, the opposite applies.
Whilst increasing the number of selections obviously increases your chance of hitting the winner for an unsuccessful Lay, every additional selection also reduces your overall odds, and any payout.
If you miss the winner, all your Lays will be successful. You will clean up with a “Skinner”.
Bookies, or Betfair traders who Lay several selections in an event, are in effect Dutching the market.
I suspect that most traders will use the Simple Dutching method described below.

There are 3 methods of Dutching shown here.
Each has its advantages over the others concerning odds input for calculation, control of total stakes, and profit target.

Simple Dutching

  • Allows odds to be input in any sequence
  • Stakes remain unaltered throughout
  • There is no control of Total Stakes.

Stakes Limit Dutching

  • The odds of ALL the runners need to be input before calculations can be done
  • Stakes will adjust, if more selections are added.
  • There is total control of Total Stakes.

Dutching to a profit target

  • Maintains profit level regardless of number of runners or odds.
  • As the number of selections increases, all stakes are adjusted to maintain the desired profit.
  • Total Stakes can spiral alarmingly, especially if the odds are short.

This Excel spreadsheet package contains 3 separate spreadsheets that show the stakes required to Dutch any market with stakes remaining unaltered as you add more selections, or Dutch with control of total stakes, or Dutch to a profit target, as described above.
