Best bookmakers for football betting 2017

Top Bookmakers

This is a quick summary of all the bookmakers and their offers for the coming season. I’ve reviewed them impartially and have used them all but this is just my opinion. In order to get the best odds and offers for your bets I would recommend opening an account with all of them, and using them when appropriate. I’ve only reviewed the main stream bookmakers as they generally offer the best offers and customer service, without risking your funds with some of the more unscrupulous providers. Hope you find the information useful and if you have any questions please contact me on Facebook, Twitter or via email.

Bet365

Bet365 are one of the biggest bookmakers in the world. They offer a simple but high quality service, with good odds. The mobile applications match the theme and style of their main website which allows for good usability across the board. Unlike their competitors they do not change their sign up offer and it remains a £200 deposit bonus, the largest in the industry. The do not offer price boosts and rarely offer free bets so that is something to consider, however they do have a number of good offers which I’ve detailed below.

Coral

Star Rating

Like many of the bookmakers Coral have been focusing more online as they move away from the high street. The site has improved and so have their mobile applications but there is still plenty of work to do. Unfortunately they seem to be focusing on new player acquisition, regularly changing the free bet offers rather than looking to improve current player experience. They have decent odds but not the best and their offers are some of the weakest in the market.

Cash Out A sportsbook feature that allows you to take a profit or a loss on your bet before that bet has settled. Cash Out offers are made in real time and your Cash Out offer will reflect live market prices, includes partial cash out

Betfred

Betfred captured the imagination a few years ago and burst onto the online and offline markets with the goals galore promotion. It was a great bet with great odds and opened the door to new creative coupons. Unfortunately they haven’t spent enough time developing their site and haven’t converted well from the high street bookmaker. They have one of the poorest web designs out their, which hinders usability and the offers aren’t great either. Occasionally they offer the best odds on our selections, so it’s worth having an account with them, but they aren’t my main bookmaker.

Cash Out A sportsbook feature that allows you to take a profit or a loss on your bet before that bet has settled. Cash Out offers are made in real time and your Cash Out offer will reflect live market prices, includes partial cash out
Double Delight – If your player scores the first goal of the match, then goes on to score another, we’ll DOUBLE your first goalscorer price!
Hat-trick Heaven – If your player scores the first goal of the match, then goes on to score a hat-trick within 90 minutes, we’ll TREBLE your first goalscorer price!
