Pre-match offer


  • Football betting is the most popular option on BetWinner
  • BetWinner offers odds on 30+ sports
  • Odds are competitive, yet on the slightly higher side

betwinner pre-match betting - BetWinner Sports Betting Review

At the time of writing, BetWinner offers odds on over 30 sports, including the likes of Football, Tennis, and Basketball, among other markets. BetWinner also offer odds on unique sports like Muay Thai, Billiards, and Boat Racing, among other options. This ensures that the bookmaker offers something for people of all tastes – There are thousands of markets to punt on, when it comes to BetWinner.

That being said, BetWinner offers a plethora of different minimum, and maximum betting limits, when it comes to placing a bet on a sports market. These limits vary on the basis of the odds that you are backing, and the selections that you have made. You must always read the terms and conditions associated with a betting market, and gauge several different bookmakers, before placing a bet of your choice.

Some bookmakers offer better odds for a bet that you want to place, and it makes sense to place a bet on a bookmaker site, which offers you a better chance of reaping higher profits. Bookmakers earn off bookmaker’s margin, and you must know how to calculate this number. Bookmaker’s margin in essence, is the margin above a 100% market, which a bookmaker commands over you.

Any margin which exceeds 110%, is not worth punting on, as you are likely to lose the bet. You can calculate bookmaker’s margin, by calculating the Odds Overround for a bet. Calculating the Odds Overround for a betting variant, involves you converting fractional odds, of each individual outcome of a bet, into the decimal form, and dividing each individual outcome by 100. You must then add these numbers together.

The sum total achieved, is the Odds Overround, and you can determine the margin a bookmaker holds over you, by studying this number. The closer is the margin to 100%, the more active a market is, and the more competitive are the odds at offer, for that market.

We calculated the Odds Overround for a match in the Australian Open, to determine the competiveness of the odds at offer, at BetWinner. The Odds Overround were found to be 104.69. This indicates that the odds at offer, at BetWinner are competitive, and worth punting on.

Esports

Esports are of the essence in today’s day and age of technological evolution. The younger generation loves playing, and punting on Esports, and BetWinner does not let you down, when it comes to offering an exciting barrage of markets to choose from. At the time of writing, BetWinner is offering odds on Dota 2, Rainbow 6, League of Legends, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, among other options.

Several tournaments take place in due course of the year, and you must perform your due diligence, and bet on teams which have performed well over a period of time, look into fixture history, and other statistical insights.

That being said, BetWinner offers a plethora of different minimum, and maximum betting limits, when it comes to placing a bet on an Esports market. These limits vary on the basis of the odds that you are backing, and the selections that you have made.

Other Specials

BetWinner offers excellent odds on other specials like Politics, Weather, and Television. When it comes to Politics, at the time of writing, you can choose to punt on the Polish Presidential Election 2020, the Most Seats in the Irish Parliamentary Election, Australian RBA Interest Rates, and the American – How many Republican Senators will Vote against Trump and Impeachment Trial – among other options.

When it comes to Weather, at the time of writing, you can choose to bet on the Weather in the Airports of the World (Several options for the same). When it comes to Television, at the time of writing, you can choose to punt on the National Television Awards 2020, YouTube Special Bets, TV Shows in Australia, and TV Shows in the Great Britain, among other options.

That being said, BetWinner offers a plethora of different minimum, and maximum betting limits, when it comes to placing a bet on a specials market. These limits vary on the basis of the odds that you are backing, and the selections that you have made.

Cash Out and Bet Builder

Much like many popular bookmakers, BetWinner offers its customer both Cash Out, and Bet Builder. Cash Out allows you to retrieve your initial stake, in due course of a match, if you feel that you may lose a bet. The amount returned, depends on the time at which you decided to Cash Out, and the odds on the bet, at the time of cashing out. You could end up receiving more, or less than your initially staked amount.

Bet Builder, on the other hand is an excellent feature, which allows you to build a bet of your choice. Once you click on a market you would like to punt on, you can choose to build a bet, according to the options BetWinner will give you for the same. You can choose up to four selections at a time, and BetWinner will generate the odds for the same. Bet Builder in essence means that you can put together an infinite number of possibilities, to create new bets on the bookmaker.

While BetWinner does offer an option to live stream matches, it is limited to certain sports and events, like Cockfights, and Esports, among other options, and is mostly available for the most popular events. We hope that BetWinner works on this, in due course of time, and offers a wider selection of live streaming options.
