Wagers Available Because you bet against thousands of other people and not a bookmaker you get on average 20% better odds, and sometimes 200% better odds! Betfair only charge a small commission (2-5%) on your overall winnings. Betting against other thousands of people on Betfair means you can bet for and against any outcome. Betfair call it a Back (for) and Lay (against) bet. So now you don’t always have to Back a winner; you can bet against a win giving you choice and control you’ve never had before.
Sports Available for Wagering All major sports available for wagering.
