As with all kinds of betting, a punter can reduce the risk by doing some background research. It may not be much, but the information you will get may greatly help in making up your decision to bet on a greyhound during the actual game. For example, in your research you found out that the dog you favour during the live greyhound betting has some serious injury in the past and the signs of wear is showing in the game, you would have second thoughts if you would still favour that dog. This saves you from the big chance of losing a chunk of cash and it also gives you a bigger opportunity of winning.
