What are enhanced odds?

Many (but not all) bookmakers offer enhanced odds promotions for the big sporting events as a way of attracting new customers. Typically, the bookies will boost a price on the favourite to win a big event, and they pay out in cash or free bets (or a mixture of both). The main point to bear in mind when it comes to enhanced odds is that the offers are time-limited, and the bookmakers often end the promotions early if there is a popular interest in a particular offer. We will bring you all of the Cheltenham betting enhanced odds right here on this page in the build-up to the festival.

Terms and conditions apply in relation to all of the betting offers featured in this post. Enhanced winnings often paid in free bets. Check websites for full T&Cs.
