Sports selection — normal

We calculated the margin for Betfair by analyzing the odds they offer. We further ranked them in one of the following three categories:

From 1% to 5%: Low

From 5.01% to 7%: Normal

From 7.01% to 10%: High


We got our results by taking into account the odds for final result outcomes measured in line with the over / under for different football leagues. Getting the average results using this method, we were able to obtain the margins for each league and the overall betting margin for the bookmaker.

Betfair has an overall average margin of 6.39% for football and falls in the normal category. In the first section with Premier League and Championship, the margin is at 6.41%. The second section with Spanish La Liga and Italian Seria A, the margin is at 6.29%. Finally, taking the English Football League One, Austrian Bundesliga and Polish Ekstraklasa into account, the margin is at 6.47%.

Betting options — good

Betfair Sportsbook provides markets for more sports than the exchange and has a greater number of extra markets for most as well.


The football markets are one of the main areas Betfair turn their attention to and they cover all the main leagues from around the World. Particular attention is paid to UK markets though and they provide a vast number of options per game. A novel feature is the “odds on that” concept where you can Tweet them with your predictions which may not currently be available, such as “Over 4.5 cards, Over 2,5 goals and Over 9 Corners” and they will put it on the website with a price.  Your Tweets to them should have the hashtag #OddsOnThat.

Horse Racing

Horse Racing markets are also well covered and they provide not just great odds but one of the best-designed betting areas and a huge range of information and race data to help with your selections. They also have a live stream of every race which you have bet on.

Other Sports

Other sports are well covered but not quite a swell as the main ones. However, if you are into Tennis they have odds not just on the match result but you can bet set by set and game by game. Basketball and Cricket also should be mentioned as having many options.

Live — normal

Betfair's Sportsbook does have in play “live betting” available for a large number of football matches but the range and choice for other sports are limited and much less than on the exchange. The product is well spaced out and intuitive to use with a decent number of markets to bet on for each match.

There is a streaming service available though not for all sports and games. Football matches which they do not follow you can watch match updates (only score and time played) on a small graphic on the screen.

About the bookmaker

The Betfair exchange started in 1999 but the Sportsbook opened in 2014, joining Casino and Poker to the Betfair stable. They are financially enormous having merged with Paddy Power and now being the rebranded “Flutter Entertainment” Group.

Unfortunately, more often than not people write reviews only when there are issues that still remain. When everything is running smoothly, they often do not write. We ask that you also fill in the positive field, so that the review can achieve its maximum objective. We are sure, that you will tell us the negatives, as well as the positives of these bookmakers.
