Betfred was one of the pioneers of fixed odds football betting in the UK, as well as the first bookie to offer singles betting on English football matches.
Betfred’s current football betting service includes all the basic elements you’d expect, and its regular football betting specials mean some good value is on offer. However, Betfred has fallen a little behind the pack in terms of offering extra value to punters. Its relatively stripped down football betting service will appeal mostly to punters focused on the elite European domestic leagues.
Benefits of betting on football at Betfred
Betfred’s football betting specials are reason enough to sign up with this bookie. A selection of ongoing betting specials are offered on a wide selection of matches and tournaments. These specials can boost the payouts you get from winning bets or ensure you get cash back on losing bets.
Betfred provides free audio commentary on a small selection of high-profile matches. This is a convenient way to make sure you don’t miss out on the action in the biggest games while you’re at your computer.
Betfred lets you head off the beaten path, offering some exotic football betting markets. Whether you want to bet on how many goals a star transfer will score at his new club or bet on the winner of a major football award, Betfred has a reputation for offering great novelty markets for football.
Betfred’s football betting coverage
If you’re a follower of any of the major international football leagues or even of second-tier European football, Betfred has you covered. However, if want to place bets on more obscure leagues in remote corners of the world, you’re better off heading to a bookmaker such as bet365 or William Hill.
Betfred’s market coverage even of top-level matches is also lighter than that of its major competitors. You can bet on around 40 markets for matches in the elite European football leagues. Coverage of leagues outside of the elite football playing nations is basic, with just a handful of basic betting markets available.
Betfred promotions and specials
Frequent football betting specials and promotions are the biggest incentive for opening a betting account at Betfred. Using specials, you can boost the odds on your winning selections or get cash back on losing bets. Betfred also has a reputation for offering excellent pre-tournament specials for major football events.
Betfred’s standard football odds markets tend to reflect industry averages, although you can get often get competitive prices on outliers in the outrights markets.
Where Betfred does offer unbeatable odds is in the first goalscorer markets. Its long-running Double Delight/Hat-Trick Heaven betting special will double or triple the payout on your winnings if you place a successful bet on a qualifying match.
