There is no question that if you want the best odds on boxing matches you need to be using one of the betting exchanges in the UK.
Other traditional bookies, may be able to give you some fancy multiple bets, that you’ve got no hope of winning (you may as well buy a lottery ticket) but if you love to bet on the outcome of a boxing match then you can win much more by using a betting exchange. Check out Betopin.com’s best boxing betting sites.
Using a betting exchange for Boxing
For general information on how betting exchanges work see our article “how betting exchanges work” but basically, because they act as a central market for backing and laying bets the competition means that (as with all industries) the consumer (the punter) gets better odds.
You bet can win when the boxer loses
This is by far the best feature of using a betting exchange for betting on boxing matches like Cral Frampton v Scott Quigg. Instead of just betting on one boxer winning you can bet on them losing. What this does it eliminates outcomes like a draw, slightly reducing your risk. It’s a bit like betting red/black on a roulette table with no nasty green 0. If you like a bit of online roulette you can see our run down of roulette strategies here.
Taking advantage of betting exchange welcome offers.
There are currently three betting exchanges operating in the UK. Betfair, BetDaq and Smarkets. Each betting exchange offers incentives to open a new account. The best betting exchange welcome offer for boxing at the moment is from Smarkets, who will give you a discounted commission on winning bets of only 2% and also a £10 free bet when you sign up. You can sign up with Smarkets here.
Sports Spread Betting on Boxing
Of course, if you are a good gambler then it’s worth looking at Sporting Index and Spreadex who offer sports spread betting on Boxing. both sports spread betting bookies offer great sign up bonuses for new customers. The risks are higher, but then so are the rewards.
