The odds available in many Betfair betting markets are often bigger that those offered from other bookmakers with the larger differences on the bigger priced selections. When commissions are taken into account, there is often little difference between Betfair odds and the best available bookmaker’s odds, more so on the popular, shorter priced selections.

There can be some exceptional value found on the Betfair exchange and often markets will come close to 100% book.

Betfair has an excellent risk free bet offer for new customers and has run the occasional introductory discount offer to promote new products such as Tote betting and the introduction of horse race multiple bets.
