Best websites for Odds Comparison (Sure Bets, Value Bets, Market Movements)
Odds comparison websites are not only important to check for finding the best prices available on a certain game/market, they are also great for finding key information in order to find value bets, market movements, payout, past results and popular selections.
Oddschecker is one of the most complete website on odds comparison. The website includes multiple countries you can select when first visiting the website. This is very helpful as most websites features only bookmakers only accesible to UK residents, or put all the regions together in one list. Available countries include: US, Australia, Italy, Germany, Spain and UK. Once selected the website will filter bookmakers available in your country.
Football market section is one of the most complete that can be found online. For example on the UK version for a R16 Champions League match there are 110 markets available.
The bookmaker selection is limited to the bookies available to the country you select. For example for UK residents in the same Champions League game for the 1X2 market there are 24 bookmakers and 4 betting exchange websites compared. This is in contrast to the 56 bookmakers compared on Betbrain and 60 from Oddsportal for the same game. The difference here is that Oddschecker only select the bookmakers available for the resident of UK, while the other two websites put all of them together.
Although inferior in market selection compared to Oddschecker, Oddsportal offers some interesting tools that might be helpful for different types of bettors.
One of the most useful is the possiblity to see the payout (in %) offered for a certain bet, an option not to be found in other odds comparison websites.
Oddsportal in contrast to Oddschecker does not filter bookmakers per country, but rather it puts all together, so it’s the user who needs to figure out which ones are available in his place of residence and which ones are banned.
The best part of the website and what it sets it apart from others is the betting tool section where we can find:
- Dropping odds (odds experiencing a recent big drop)
- Sure bets (set of bets on a certain event that guarantees a profit of no less than the total amount of bets made, regardless of the result of the event)
- Blocked odds (bets no longer accepted by bookmakers)
- Value bets (bets with mathematically calculated value)
- Hot matches (most popular matches)
- Best handicaps (comparing both handicap margins and the odds)
- Moving margins (handicap margins movement)
- Archived results (past results and relative odds)
BetBrain has a big selection of markets available to compare but where it excels is in the huge amount of leagues and competitions covered from around the world (average of 82 countries compared to around 60 on Oddschecker). If you look for a specific league from a small country there is good chance you’ll find odds comparison for it on Betbrain.
In order to see all the bookmakers available for a particular bet you need to register for free, but it’s worth it if you are gonna start using it often. BetBrain has a huge list of bookmakers available, including bookies that are new or have had issues in the past. So you have to be careful to check if a particular bookmaker is trusty before choosing to bet your money with them.
Checking these 3 odds comparison websites before placing a bet you should be able to find the best odds from the most important bookmaker.
