Betfair Bookmaker Review
Many passionate sports bettors have heard of Betfair especially as a bet exchange operator, but usually as a classic bookmaker with solid odds offers. The organization running the Betfair website is The Sporting Exchange Ltd (Abbreviation: TSE Ltd.) located in the British oversees territory Gibraltar.
BETTING COVERAGE & ODDSThe odds are a lot more generous for most sport events on Betfair. This is because the market determines the fair price for the outcome instead of the bookmaker. Punters match bets with other punters. This has huge advantages for punters, first and foremost they benefit from much better odds on sporting events. Generally, the greater the odds, the greater the discrepancy between the bookmakers’ price and the exchange price. It also means that a punter can back an outcome and lay an outcome on the same event.
So, when you read that some top sports betting web-site offers a wide range of football, think of Betfair and its selection of sports markets, from the top football leagues like the Premier League, or Seria A, to obscure competitions like the football league of Bahrain or Jordan. There are over 50 football betting markets and specials like who will be the next manager of a certain football team, or will the star player stay in the club, etc.
Live in-play betting at Betfair is an unrivalled experience because Betfair is able to offer its members the chance to cash out for a profit during a sporting event, like a football match, horse race or other event. This is due to the unique back and lay system with which punters don’t have to wait for the final outcome of the event. There is also a live video section with which punters can watch the sporting event that they placed a bet on as the action unfolds.
