A modern bookmaker is usually only as good as its live betting section and in this regard, Bethard Sports leaves nothing to be desired. For starters, the bookmaker has a huge variety of live betting options and almost all sports are on the menu.
Even though live streaming isn’t offered on all of them, there are plenty of matches that can be watched in real-time as players place their bets. On those occasions when live streaming is not available, punters can rely on the great looking and useful visualizer feature.
At the top of the list of sports suitable for live betting, players will discover football, tennis, basketball and American sports. The number of betting markets ranges from a few dozen options to more than 100 for high profile games and derbies.
Even low profile games such as table tennis, water polo, basketball and esports are available for live betting. The latter have gained a lot of popularity in recent years and punters can bet on first-person shooters, real-time strategy and multiplayer online battle arena games.
Betting Limits, Markets and Odds
The list of Bethard Sportsbook betting options is extensive and with nearly 3 dozen sports on the menu, this is hardly a surprise. While almost all top sports are covered, horse and Greyhound racing events are inconspicuously missing. This is a bit surprising, since the UK audience is so interested to bet on these competitions. For the sports featured, the bookmaker publishes the odds well in advance and players can bet on the outright winners of big tournament such as the World Cup, the tennis grand slam tournaments, as well as the Formula One World Championship.
The mainstream markets include bets on the outright winners, the total number of goals scored, the results at half-time and full-time. It is also possible to bet on niche markets, such as Asian handicaps, the total number of yellow and red cards or corners among other options. Players can bet as much as they like, but they should remember that winnings exceeding €50,000 will be cashed out in smaller installments. This is not such a big concern, as the top priority for players is to win such a big amount in the first place.
This is when the quality of the odds becomes important, since a high return to player makes it easier for punters to stay profitable. There are no differences between the odds offered on football and other, less popular sports, so players enjoy the same treatment regardless of preference. Compared to other bookmakers and the industry average, their odds are not exactly something to shout for. They are precisely on par with the median return to player, which revolves around 91% on coin flip events.
