Sports Betting Markets
One of the first things to decide when indulging in the world of online betting is which betting markets you prefer. Depending on your sport of choice there are a number of different markets to contemplate. If you’re a horseracing enthusiast then you’ll be looking at the winner market, each-way betting or distance betting whereas those who enjoy football betting will look at match odds markets, goals markets and even total corners or total cards markets.
In sports where there are straight match-ups between two teams or individuals then sports betting markets tend to be quite similar. Darts, snooker, tennis and (limited overs) cricket all revolve around the match odds market where there are just two runners: Team/Player A and Team/Player B. Then, depending on the sport, there are other markets that center around peripheral events in the match. In darts it is the number of 180s markets, snooker has the highest break market and cricket has innings runs markets and top team batsmen betting.
New to Sports Betting?
With so many online bookmakers to choose from and 100s of different betting markets available to bet on for each and every sport, the online betting world can be a daunting place for those who are new to sports betting. But if you are new to this field then you’re in luck because Free Betting Online is the place to be.
For starters, our Spread Betting page explains the intricacies of one of the betting areas that is often perceived as the most complexed. We’ve also reviewed a comprehensive list of online bookmakers in order to offer you an independent opinion before you part with your cash. If they’re not a bookmaker that we trust then we’ll either tell you so or, more likely, we won’t entertain them by giving them a place on our site.
So if you don’t know the difference between an Asian Handicap and a Spread Bet or think that a parlay is a French dessert, fear not, you are in the right place. Have a glance through our pages and you’ll find all the information that you need.
Sports Betting Exchanges
Betting exchanges, particularly Betfair, revolutionised the betting industry in a way that not even its creators could have initially envisaged. The biggest revolution being that punters could now bet against (lay) something happening and essentially play at being the bookmaker. Betting exchanges also took the edge away from the bookmakers and gave the punters greater control of the odds that they wanted.
An exchange matches punters with opposing views from around the world and allows them to bet against each other on a range of outcomes, whether it be the winner of the Grand National or the first goalscorer in the FA Cup final. There are other betting exchanges aside from Betfair, Betdaq and WBX being the biggest competitors although Betfair, the original exchange, are still the leaders in field of the betting exchange.
Sports Betting from home
Like it or not, Sky television has changed the face of sport, particularly football, over the course of the past two decades. As a direct result they are also partly responsible for the online betting boom over the same period. Punters can now watch sports events from around the world from the comfort of their own armchair and courtesy of the wonders of the internet make their sports betting punts from the comfort of their own home.
Betting shops are becoming quieter and quieter over the years as a new generation of sports bettors decide to do their punting from their own home. Where information is readily available to hand and punters can make their decisions based on a whole heap of knowledge that is available at their finger tips.
It seems that every day there are more sports on which you can bet. We can show you how to tap into the most popular sports and get the best betting offers. With Free Betting Online, you can place a sports bet on regular games during the season as well as playoffs, championship games, and special events.
