Netbet Bookmaker Review
NetBet, which was previously Bet770, has been around since 2001 and has a lot of experience in all things gambling. In this article I’m going to take a look at their sportsbook.
NetBet Sports aims to offer its user the best experience possible by providing top notch customer service and a good array of betting markets on sports ranging from the popular Football, Tennis and Golf to the more niche sports like MMA, Aussie Rules and Badminton.
MarketsFootball, horse racing, tennis, basketball, ice hockey and American football are generally perceived as the flagship sports for the top bookmakers, and NetBet have them all covered.
Football is by far the most popular betting event around the world, and there is very solid coverage from all corners of the globe. In total, there are odds for matches in 42 countries, with European and World competitions also covered. The top leagues in less heralded football nations such as Guatemala and Bolivia have matches priced up, although it is worth noting that NetBet decline to involve themselves with some of the European leagues such as Estonia and Latvia that have been open to corruption in recent years.
The odds on English football extend as low as the Ryman Premier league, and there is also betting on the English Premier League U21 action. The top 4 leagues in Germany are covered, whilst Spain and France both have odds for their top two tiers of domestic football.
In addition to the Euro leagues, basketball betting spans over 18 different countries, with the USA having odds for the NBA, WNBA and NCAAB.
OddsNetBet’s odds for English Premier League football are fair, without being market leading. A betting book without any inbuilt profit margin, would compile to 100% when odds are converted to percentages. Therefore getting as close to 100% as possible is desirable. NetBet’s games typically compile to around 105-106%, which is ahead of companies such as Betway, generally in line with firms such as Ladbrokes, Coral, Paddy Power and SkyBet, but behind BetVictor, Bet365 and Matchbook.
Handball matches are typically compiled to 108.5-109.5%, with the German Bundesliga game between Flensburg Handewitt v Magdeburg game worked to 109.2%, which was less competitive than Bet365’s 106.3% book, but better than BetVictor’s 112.4%.
Horse racing odds are not the most competitive. On 18th February 2015, 4 hours before the 12 runner 20:10 contest at Kempton, NetBet’s odds compiled to 124.4%. 2% per runner is not terrible, but most of the firms working to similar percentages, tend to offer Best Odds Guaranteed on their early odds.
Odds for other sports are again, reasonable, without being the most competitive.

NetBet Sportsbook Review - SummaryThere used to be a feeling that NetBet were letting their sportsbook play second fiddle to their casino and poker branches but I think things have changed. With the addition of great mobile and in-play betting features I think NetBet have signalled their intention to become a big player in the sports betting arena.
The one negative, which I struggled to find, is their odds. Overall their odds are slightly lower than that of their competitors. This is looking at it in too general of terms though, when you drill down into individual events it is still easily possible to find good odds particular on the lessor known sports and markets.
NetBet Sports provides a user friendly and fun betting environment. With their generous deposit bonus I see no reason why you shouldn’t give them a try today!
