Place bet

A place bet offers an opportunity to bet on an athlete/team getting a high placing. The exact condition to meet also needs to be factored in, e.g. “in the top three”.

If, say, a selected skier finishes the race in the top three, the bet is won. Precisely which of the three places he or she ends the race in is not important in terms of the bet.

Example: A bet is placed on Beat Feuz securing a podium position in the Wengen ski race. He ends up in 2nd place. The bet is won because Beat Feuz was ranked among the best three and so reached the podium.
