Over time with football betting, you will likely find the best football betting site that suits you best. The same applies to other sports, where, in sports betting, you will find a sports betting site that suits you best. For example, Paddy Power and Bet365 tend to be a popular sports betting site for those betting on horse racing, whilst Sky Bet is a favourite for football because of its RequestABet feature and wide range of markets available.
In terms of football betting, you will want to have a look at Sky Bet and Bet365. Bet365 are one of the world’s leading sports bookmakers and this is mainly because of their unrivalled markets and leagues available for football betting. Bet365 title their football betting section as ‘soccer betting’ as it is used throughout the world and not just in the UK. Bet365 offer football betting on leagues such as the Premier League, Championship, League One, League Two, National League, National League North, National League South and many other domestic English cups, such as the FA Cup, League Cup, each divisions play-off, EFL Trophy and so on.
Bet365 even offer football betting on other UK leagues which tend to be overlooked by other sports bookmakers. The Scottish Premiership, Scottish Championship, Scottish League One, Scottish League Two, Welsh Premier League, League of Ireland Premier Division are all available with Bet365 and you won’t find such a wide range of markets with other bookmakers.
However, what separates Bet365 from the rest is their markets for leagues around Europe and the rest of the world - they offer something that almost everyone else can’t. League’s such as the Brazil Serie A, Ghana Premier League, Burkina Faso League, Burundi Premier League, Japan J1-League and J2-League, Singapore Premier League and the Qatar Stars Cup are just a select few leagues that Bet365 allow markets on. Within these leagues, you can also bet on the outright winner of each league and even bet on the games itself with Bet365’s exceptional range of markets, such as BTTS, under/over and bookings, to name a few.
In terms of within Europe, it’ll be worth sticking with Bet365 as well. This world-leading bookmaker dedicates experts and dedicates time to making sure that it’s not just the top five European leagues (Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1, Serie A, Bundesliga) that are covered. No, in fact, Bet365 offer markets on almost every single top flight European football league within football betting. This means that most Scandinavian competitions, such as the Sweden Allsvenskan and even the Sweden Superettan and the Norway Eliteserien and Denmark Superligaen are able to be betted on incredibly easily through the Bet365 website and app.
Other leagues, such as divisions in Israel, Serbia, Poland, Romania, Turkey, Slovakia and many, many more are also available through Bet365, making this bookmaker the perfect football betting place for those wanting to take a punt on markets and leagues outside of the top European leagues, such as the Premier League.
However, if betting on the Premier League is what you’re after, then your best bookmaker to look at is Sky Bet. Sky Bet offers what is known as the RequestABet feature. This allows you to essentially pick whatever bet you want, and this will be sent to Sky Bet’s pricing team, and they will reply to your bet within no more than 15 minutes before kick off. These RequestABets allow you to bet between 2-4 markets for one game. For example, if England play France, you can choose up to four markets, such as: Harry Kane to score, Paul Pogba to be carded, both teams to score and 3+ corners each. Sky Bet will then price up this bet and send it back to you, where you can choose to take a punt on this bet, or just leave it and try another bet, or try another RequestABet.
What also sets Sky Bet aside from other bookmakers is their wide range of exceptionally detailed markets. Sky Bet offer the usual markets such as outright winner, corners, bookings, under/over and so on. However, you can see other bettors’ popular RequestABet, which can be from 10/1, up to 100/1. Sky Bet also offer markets on areas such as GOAT, which stands for: goal, offside, assist, tackle. They also offer markets that are more specific and relate to individual players, such as offsides, tackles, shots on target, to outscore the opposition, to score and draw, to score and lose, and even picking the first goalscorer and the correct score, which can throw your odds up to over 100/1, if you so please.
Sky Bet are also famous for their range of bets regarding players and managers within the transfer market. For both the January transfer window and the summer transfer window, you will find many notable players within Sky Bet’s markets, particularly those who are doing the rounds in the reports. For example, Lionel Messi to Manchester City has been one of the stories of the last year and you will no doubt find him on Sky Bet’s markets ahead of the upcoming transfer window. In this market, you can choose which club for Messi to join next, and not just City. There could be markets for Manchester United, Juventus, Inter Milan, Bayern Munich and maybe even Real Madrid or the MLS.
