When searching the web for the bookmakers with best odds then odds comparison sites are a great way to check this, however at Bookmaker Advisor we have done a fair bit of analysis and we have see consistent trends as to which bookmakers usually come out tops in the “odds” department.
Some bookmakers offer better odds on football, some on horse racing and it is a pattern you find on a lot of different sports.
Why this happens is really down to perceived risk. A bookmaker will price up an event based on the amount of money they wish to take. As an example a match between Manchester City against a team like Swansea would see Pep Guardiola’s men a very short price across all bookmakers, however there are always one or two bookmakers who will “take a risk” and be a bigger or longer price than the crowd.
Whereby you will find one or two bookmakers who are always a shorter price. The reason for this is that they want to alleviate risk and not really lay the favorite……in this case Manchester City. They would much rather risk taking money on Swansea as the outsider.
So who are thebest Uk bookmakers that offer the best odds on various sports?
From our own research we see that Sporting Bet and new boys SportPesa seem to offer slightly better odds on Football whilst SkyBet and Bet365 usually either fall inline of offer slightly worse odds.
When we look at horse racing then it is a totally different scenario, with Bet365 and Skybet offering better odds, and Skybet in particular are being very aggressive (great for the punter) by paying a lot more places on big horse racing handicaps
When we look at Tennis, another very popular sport for punters, we see than Bwin seem to be the bookmaker taking most risks on the favorites and offering bigger prices whilst the bookmakers taking less risk in Tennis seem to be Paddy Power and SportingBet.
This is why it is important to make sure you have a wide range of betting accounts so you can get the most value, whichever sport you bet on.

Talking about odds, when you are looking to sign up with a bookmaker to take advantage of a bonus offer. Be sure to check what the minimum odds are that you must use to place your bonus bet. Most bookmakers will not let you bet at odds of less than 1.5 (decimal) or 1/2 (fractional) with any bonus bet you have.
AWFUL. Avoid at all costs. The withdrawal time is ridiculous. They leave withdrawals pending for over 48 hours and if it should be a significant withdrawal they just leave it pending indefinitely in the hope you reverse it. Poor customer service, they claim to have Live Help but the link directs you to your e-mail! Having used sports betting sites for the best part of 15 years I am struggling to think of one that matches their incompetency.
