Betfair are best known as the company that popularised the exchange market in betting, in which peer-to-peer betting can take place with the middle man of the bookmaker all but removed. In recent years they’ve also added a traditional sportsbook to their roster, so people that find the exchange a bit confusing and daunting can still use their services. Of course, it’s the exchange where the site really excels so it’s going to be worth your while finding out how it works if you hope to make the most of what they have to offer.
Whilst the number of sports that they offer odds on isn’t as overwhelming as with some other sites, the odds and markets that they offer on the sports that they do cover are always impressive. There’s no question that In-Play betting is one of Betfair’s major strengths, so if you like to bet on events as they’re panning out then this is the site for you. The exchange offers decent odds almost uniformly because you get to dictate what you’re looking for yourself.
