As summarised in the table above the free bets offers from Betfair, BETDAQ, Matchbook, and Smarkets rival those available at bookmakers, with in some cases 50%-200% better prices.  Check the picture below from a popular odds comparison site Timeform.  Pictured are the 2021 Grand National Results & Starting Prices, there is a considerable difference.

2021 Grand National Finishing Positions & Start Prices, ISP & BSP
2021 Grand National Finishing Positions & Starting Prices – ISP is the Industry Starting Price, BSP the Betfair Starting Price figures. (Click, to enlarge image)

Coming in 1st was Minella Times available on sports betting exchanges at a BSP (Betfair Starting Price) of 13.5, the industry starting price (ISP) was 12.0 which after exchange commission would be slightly over a 10% better price.  In 2nd was Balko Des Flos at a whopping 161.17 compared to the ISP of 101, which after exchange commission is a well over a 50% better price. Some of the runners were available at double the price, 100% better odds!

The overrounds figures for this race were, an ISP Industry Starting Price 146%, and BSP Betfair Starting Price 104.9% If you’re unsure about what the overrounds figure means (the closer to 100% it is, the better the odds), check our in depth sports betting exchanges and bookmakers comparison article.

Not only do exchanges offer better odds, there are numerous online services available to the punter for live score betting, and picking out well priced winners at the races.  Check our sports betting services category for more details.  One of the most popular is InplayTrading, they have an interface that allows gamblers to quickly click directly through to Betfair Exchange football markets, at important points of a match.  Follow the banner or check the screenshots below of the IPT interface.


Along with the better prices, sign up deals, and 0% commission offers, betting exchanges also encourage the use of betting API software.  API software is applications that interface directly with the betting exchange markets.  This includes sports betting bots and sports market exchange trading software.  If you follow the links provided, there’s detailed information on some of the API betting software available.
