is a group of the entrants whose odds
are not individually listed to win an event, usually longshots
. These longshots are grouped together so that a bettor
wins his field bet if any
of the longshots win. Events with a large number of entrants, like golf or NASCAR, most often offer field betting.
Example: Joe didn't feel strongly about any of the named entrants, so he bet the field.
