Betfair Sportsbook Review

Betfair burst onto the online sports betting scene back in 2000 and its innovative technology instantly turned the industry on its head. Its rise to prominence was spectacular and it quickly became the biggest betting exchange in the world.

In 2011 it diversified by launching a sportsbook, which has been integrated seamlessly into the main interface of the Betfair website.
Customers are now presented with a one-stop shop for all their sports betting needs. It covers a huge range of markets within more than 25 different sports. This range from popular sports like football and golf to niche offerings such as rowing and Gaelic hurling. Its coverage of football is excellent, and in Mexico it covers Liga Apertura and Liga Clausura. But also under-20s games, plus all the matches featuring El Tri.

In 2015, Irish bookmaker Paddy Power snapped up Betfair to create the world’s largest online sports betting firm. Since then both sites have helped one another improve and their popularity has continued to climb on an annual basis. Besides the sportsbook and the hugely popular exchange platform, Betfair offers casino games, live dealer games, arcade games, bingo and virtual sports.


The best thing about the Betfair exchange is the odds you can find. Mexican sports fans will benefit from all sorts of intriguing prices being laid down by their fellow bettors. They are often wildly different from the fixed odds you will find at traditional sportsbooks. So it is always worth checking out what you can find at Betfair before placing a wager.

As for the Betfair sportsbook odds, they are about average. You rarely see Betfair sportsbook leading the market with the most attractive odds around. Pinnacle is often the best for this but the prices you will find are solid. You can also find a lot more markets to bet on at Betfair sportsbook than at Pinnacle. For example, within a Liga MX match you can bet on the result, goalscorers, half-time/full-time, handicaps, double chance, draw no bet and many more.

Sometimes you will find Betfair offering huge odds boosts on big soccer games in order to win new customers, so check out its bonus and promotion offers.
