Why compare Betting odds?

For many people, having a bet is a matter of automatically using the same bookmaker whenever they decide to have a punt.  The more shrewd gamblers would never contemplate doing that.

There’s little place for loyalty in betting and it makes absolute sense to seek out the best betting odds available, and shopping around could make your wins even bigger!

For single bets,there really is no excuse for not getting the best odds.  All you need do is look on a betting odds comparison site to easily compare odds for any sporting event.

For more complex bets such as accumulators or system bets such as a Trixie, Yankee, Canadian, Heinz or Lucky 15, you would be advised to use an online betting calculator that can work out the best option for you.

The key factor in any bookmaker odds is the margin they apply.  Basically, the higher their margin, the less value for the punter.

Let’s give an example.  Juventus played Barcelona earlier in the Champions League this season and in the first leg bet365 had the Juve win at 13/8, the draw at 11/5 and the Barca win at 9/5.  To work out the margin, you first need to convert those odds to decimal format.

So we have 2.63 (13/8); 3.20 (11/5) and 2.80 (9/5), from which we can now calculate the margin:

(1/2.63) x 100 = 38.02; (1/3.20) x 100 = 31.25; (1/2.80) x 100 = 35.71.  Now add the three figures together and you have a total of 104.98.  So the margin for the match odds on this game is 4.98%.

Many sites give a list of the top bookmakers by betting margin, from which we’ve put together the table below focusing on some of the UK’s most popular sites.

Top rated bookies odds in the UK

While no bookmaker will have the best odds for every market in every event, some are clearly more competitive than others.  The best way to assess a bookmaker’s competitiveness is to look at their margins.

bet365 has long been known for its competitive pricing, but competition is now so fierce that a number of other bookmakers are pushing them.  It all adds up to great news for the punter.

The most competitive bookmaker of all is Pinnacle, but they are presently unavailable to UK customers (their return is expected in the not too distant future though).  MarathonBet also have very low margins, but they have a reputation for severely limiting how much you can stake/win.

In terms of football betting, the lowest margins today among the big players is probably BetVictor, but you need to take into account that bet365 offers many minor leagues that the majority of their competitors don’t.  That will push up their overall margin on football.  There are also Enhanced Odds available on tons of big games these days, where the odds on offer can be hugely inflated.

It’s worth noting that margins will vary depending on the competition too.  You will almost always get a far lower margin on a Premier League or Champions League game than you would on a game in the Bulgarian 2nd Division or a Peruvian cup tie.

That’s a result of both the volume of bets and bookmaker knowledge ensuring that their prices on the former are going to be far more accurate than those on a lesser traded market.
