    So what are the ones everyone uses?


    i am still old school and stroll down to the local bookies(paddypower) since i dont have a c/c(fixed in the next few days) so i cant recommend online ones.

    However the best i have come across from checking odds have been..


    www.betfair.co.uk
    www.paddypower.ie

    Betfair has the best odds, but the layout is shocking. I hate it. Paddypower's odds arent as good but its so much easier to use.

    Cant say i have tried any other ones. They any use?

    I almost always use betfair because of the value. I place the odd multiple bet with Victor Chandler, and they pay any (ocasional) winnings into my bank very promptly. I don't like ladcrooks. They don't have much regarding specials, and dont payout e/w on 5th at some of the big meetings, where paddypower often do.

    yeah betfair rock exept for the minimum of ten euro deposit, and moreso the min 4 euro bet,
    but maybee that's just me being a cheapskate!
    I have such a tendencie at times.

    Just getting into the new muse album now, seems good.

    Check out the 'Betfair Explained' Sticky in the Horse racing forum to get around the €4 minimum.

    http://www.overbrokes.co.uk/menu.htm A good site for figuring out if you can screw the bookies or at least fiddle the betting exchanges properly.

    http://wizardofodds.com/ Site with odds of various table games and some gambling site reviews.

    www.footballox.com seems to be coming along nicely, and it is due a major relaunch for the new English/European season as well. Seems to be a fair bit of scope for expansion as well.

    I use odds-checker and OLBG as well, the imaginary money game on OLBG is a bit of craic, when you've had a big loss in real life you can always fritter away 3 grand on it. :D

    Have to admit my jaw dropped when someone mentioned the navigation on betfair being hard to use. On the left, "All Markets", "Soccer - Fixtures", "Soccer Fixtures - [Date]" is the by far the best way of navigating different markets that I have seen on any website, and that goes for other sports too. Once you get seriously into betfair, the likes of Paddy Powers' site begin to look amateurish.

    Gotta give the sister gambling forum a plug. It is only up and running a small while, but plenty of activity already:

    www.wannabet.ie/boards


  • Business & Finance Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 32,414 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ DeVore


    a few of us (myself included) are involved with Wannabet but its not a sister site to Boards, it just shares a common administrator.

    www.Betbrain.com shows a far wider range of bookies odds and has links to far more bookies - generally the exchanges still offer best value, and betfair has best liquidity. When it comes to bookies I reckon between 15 -20 accounts is sufficient to ensure you always get the best price - when it comes to favourite bookmaker - I have no such thing I just use the one offering the best price and always withdraw winnings after the event. I tend to avoid some of the new names appearing on the internet and offering very generours prices (Luvbet experience) and also avoid any who charge for withdrawals (Gamebookers do this after the first withdrawal each month.

    i use www.sportsinteraction.com a good range of sports, good layout and simple to use - my payouts have been swift!(which is important)
    They also offer excellent odds for the NFL which is only a week away....


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,281 ✭✭✭ westtip


    oddschecker.com is one of the leading odds comparison sites, they have put a very handy new tool on the site, effectively you can select a number of matches, select your result (win win or draw) in a number of matches and when you press to view odds - it not only gives you a cross comparison table showing the best odds by bookmaker/xchg individually but also shows you the best multiple odds for an acca with each bookmaker on those selectons: eg say you select three matches at 1.33, 1.20, 1.25 the same matches are 1.38, 1.22, 1.22 obviously if you are doing singles you pick out best prices for each bookmaker - the two trebles come out at 1.91 with bookie 1 and 2.05 with bookie 2. The great thing about this tool is that it does it for you straight away. In the case of this treble you ar getting 0.015 extra on your odds with bookie 2, may not seem much but it adds up over time Worth looking at - over a season it could make a difference of 4 or 5 points profit for very little effort, the example I have shown gives an extra 1.5% on your turnover for this bet.

    Gambling is for mugs.

    The odds of winning are minute.

    Online poker is the worst rip off going

    My advice is stay out of the bookies as you have nothing to gain.

    I'd have to echo those sentiments Bateman..Betfair is in a different league to your run of the mill betting sites..Possibly some people can find it quite daunting initially, but one you master the basics it's a superb site for sports gambling.

    Yeah its probably the best considering what web technology can offer right now (HTML and AJAX). Though I find it a bit off-putting that they seem to have whole 'football' and 'horseracing' sections where they try and make things easier - but only manage slow things down.

    The problem with Betfair is that I'd say 90% of markets on there aren't liquid enough to have a proper bet. You could spend five minutes navigating to a specific market only to find that theres about 8 quid in unmatched bets!

    TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU, YOU CANT NOT WALK INTO A BOOKIES/BET ONLINE AND BET 10 WINNERS IN A ROW, IF YOU ARE A PERSON WHO SPENDS HOURS UPON HOURS BETTING IN ALMOST EVERY RACES YOU WILL END UP BROKE!

    ONLY WAY YOU HAVE A CHANCE IS IF YOU KNOW YOUR STUFF(OR INSIDE INFO) AND YOU PLACE THE ODD BET, CHANCES ARE YOU LL BEAT THE BOOKIE! BUT AS SOON AS THEY SEE YOU HAVE A GOOD STRIKE RATE, YOU LL GET THE RED CARD OFF THEM!

    I GOT A NICE BET UP ONE DAY, VERY LUCKY I MUST SAY, WHEN I WENT TO COLLECT I WAS TOLD THEY WOULD NOT BE LAYING ME ANY MORE!

    BOOKIES DO NOT GIVE YOU A CHANCE!
