Betting at Skybook Sports promises to be a memorable experience, particularly if you are seeking diversity and wouldn’t be limited to a handful of sports. Baseball, ice hockey and basketball leagues are available to both those interested in European competitions and fans of North American sports. The latter will also find a nice assortment of football and college football, which is a pleasant surprise in the context of denying US players access.
Those interested in live betting will have the chance to bet on all the aforementioned sports and also soccer, tennis, motorsports, golf, MMA, cricket and prop bets. With so many sports to choose from, it is hard to believe that Skybook Sports punters will get bored anytime soon, but if they do the bookmaker has an alternative. They allow members to wager on entertainment, TV shows and politics as well, although these events are not available on a daily basis. When they are not, you could always try to find these kind of events at William Hill, Betvictor or Paddy Power. These big operators are more likely to introduce such hot markets when they are in demand.
With Europeans representing the vast majority of their members, it was only natural for locally popular sports, such as tennis and soccer to be better covered. Wagering on the latter will open a broad new window of opportunity, with the best types ranging from straight bets, Moneyline wagers, props, point spreads and total wagers to round robins, specials, if wagers, half time, quarter time and teasers.
The other consequence of focusing on players from the old continent is that horse racing events are not missing from the Skybook Sports picture. Most of the competitions available for live betting are hosted in the United Kingdom or Ireland, yet fans of the genre will be able to bet on races from Australia or South Africa. Experts will notice that the bookmaker is only scratching at the surface and offering the basic wagers, unlike UK-based bookies who have been dwelling on horseracing for decades. Ladbrokes, Betfair or Sportsbet are covering a lot more events of this kind.
The bookmaker margins range from average ones of 5% on North American sports to parenting values that sink beneath 4.7%. Unfortunately, Skybook Sports only offers these odds on major competitions and most of them are football games involving the top European teams. Under normal circumstances, the return on investment when betting on event that have a 50% chance to occur is in line with the industry average, therefore nothing to shout from. Asian handicaps can shift the balance in the player’s favor, although their impact is minimal and in the long run they won’t make much of a difference for breakeven players.
