Odds — good

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

From 1% to 5%: Good value

Over 5% to 7%: Average value

Over 7% to 10%: Poor value


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.

Betway has an overall average margin of 5.23% for football and falls in the "average odds" category. In the first section with English Football (Premier League and Championship), the margin is 5.35%. In the second section with European Football (La Liga and Serie A) the margin is 5.1%. Finally, taking the Rest of the World and the English lower leagues into account the margin is at 5.25%.

Betting options — normal

There is no shortage of sports covered at Betway. We found a comprehensive list of sports on offer, including options such as football, basketball, hockey, boxing, tennis, motorsports, horse racing and a whole lot more. Betway is a brand that takes pride in the diversity of its betting options and they offer plenty of betting markets for anything from esports and UFC fighting, to beach soccer and even politics.  

A more recent addition to Betway is Horse Racing, they have implemented a comprehensive horse racing sports betting service that covers all UK and Irish races.

If you are looking for a bet on any of the largest sporting events, Betway is worth a look. They cover all major markets and virtually all of the niche ones as well.  As well as the ability to make bets at Betway you can also do your research, as they provide you with plenty of helpful statistics which means you are always well informed.   

Overall it has to be said that the BetWay odds could be more generous, they have often highlighted odds boosts and other promotions where they are the best odds available online.  These are well worth looking out for.

Live — normal

The number of in-play events that Betway offers throughout the year is larger than average. Whether you are into football, tennis, cricket, rugby or less popular sports, this bookmaker prides itself in putting a decent variety of live betting markets up for its customers. The only major negative of the Betway in-play betting service is the fact that it does not offer a live streaming feature. Betway will, however, keep you updated through live statistics and even a graphics visualiser so that you can make a well-informed in-play sport bet.
