There are still a decent number of markets, usually over 20, for matches in more obscure competitions such as the Latvian Virsliga.
Coupons are used by punters as a way of filtering down to certain types of bets. There is a drop down box, originally showing match odds, but can be changed to other coupons. The coupons available on the site include; Today’s Games, UK Football, Euro Elite, Yes/No, Both Teams to Score, Over/Under 2.5 Goals.
Betfair horse racing coverage is very comprehensive, with coverage of the flat, National Hunt and all weather meetings. As well as this, a number of international race meetings have odds listed. These include races from countries such as; Chile, France, South Africa, Sweden, Singapore and USA.
When clicking onto the Sportsbook horse racing tab, users are able to filter the markets through a number of different coupons. The first page shown is Today’s Races, with the other options being; Tomorrow’s Races, Horse Finder, A-Z listing, Future Racing, Specials, Tote and Radio. The radio offers live commentary on horse racing and greyhound racing meetings.
Overall, the odds are average but there are still some value opportunities available. They often match the best price for leading fancies in horse races once early exchanges in the markets have settled down. There are often promotions advertised, which can increase the value for certain events/races. Price Rush is a useful addition to their site. Here, Betfair could increase your bet to higher odds thanks to odds available on the Exchange.
Cash Out is used as a way to take a profit by taking an offered sum before the end of an event, in order to avoid the stress of waiting for your bet to come in. It is also a way to cut your losses.
The Sportsbook cash out is available for; football, tennis, horse racing, golf and basketball. When an event is available to cash out, users just need to look for the orange cash out button next to the market. Customers are given even more control with the option to partially cash out a bet. This is operated by a Cash Out slider. Simply open up the slider by clicking the “Cash Out part of my bet” in a dropdown list, and enter how much you would like to cash out.
The site can be used to potentially profit from matched betting techniques. Matchedbets.com teaches its members how they can make money from betting offers and its guides explain how to turn offers into potential cash profits.
