Betfred offers an uncluttered, easy-to-use site for betting on the races, along with top-notch coverage of international daily races.
As the owners of the British Tote, Betfred also provides direct access to the tote betting pools. The Tote section of the Betfred site offers win/place odds on all UK daily races, along with the opportunity to enter the various tote jackpot pools. Betfred also offers simple, helpful guides to Tote betting, which are great for beginners.
Unlike many of its main competitors, which focus largely on UK and Irish racing, Betfred provides extensive coverage of international racing. This includes coverage of live daily races in Australia, South Africa, Chile, Argentina and the United States, as well as in the UK and Ireland. Live racing markets are offered almost 24/7.
Recently Betfred has teamed up with At The Races and Racing UK to offer live streaming of UK and Irish horseracing, along with its other great features like its data-rich, interactive racecards.
Benefits of betting on racing at Betfred
Betfred allows you to watch racing in the UK and Ireland live with its live streaming feature. This means you never need to miss a second of the action from dozens of racecourses around the UK and Ireland.
Betfred’s interactive racecards give you quick and easy access to useful information and statistics. You can access horse, jockey and trainer form information for the last year with a single click, view a summary of a racecourse to check if the course layout favours various starting positions, and use a basic race predictor to get tips on which horses will win or place.
Visit Betfred and you can listen to live commentary on daily UK and Irish racing without having to make a qualifying deposit or even opening an account. Just navigate to the Sport section of the site, scroll down and click the Horse Racing link in the Live Commentary pane. This will open a separate screen in which you can choose the race for which you want to hear live commentary.
Along with coverage of UK and Irish racing, Betfred offers markets on daily racing in South Africa, Chile, Argentina, France and the United States.
As the owner of the Totepool betting service, Betfred offers easy access to all tote betting markets and jackpots offered in the UK and Ireland. Betfred also provides guides to using the tote, along with a selection of exclusive tote betting specials.
Betfred’s racing betting coverage
BetFred offers fixed odds betting markets on each race it covers, including:
- winner/place market
- forecast market.
Special markets are also available on a daily basis. These range from winning distances to spread markets on how the favourites at a particular racecourse will perform over the course of a day.
The relatively light fixed odds coverage from Betfred is supplemented by a selection of tote markets, which are available in the separate Totepool section of the site. From here you’ll be able to access a full range of pool betting markets for UK and Irish racing, including:
- Tote Win and Tote Place markets
- Tote Jackpot
- Tote Placepot
- Tote Quadpot
- Tote Exacta
- Tote Trifecta.
A bonus is that Betfred offers access to daily racing in countries not covered by many other UK-based bookies, including Chile, Argentina and the United States. If virtual racing is your thing, you can also bet on races at virtual racing 24/7.
Betfred racing promotions and specials
Betfred is known as the “Bonus King” for a reason. Some of its best specials are on offer in the Totepool section. For fixed odds markets, you’ll find accumulator bonuses and daily place and money-back specials, especially for high-profile race meetings.
Betfred racing odds
For the most part, Betfred’s racing odds reflect the market averages, although you’ll often find they give the best price on one or two entries per race.
Betfred also offers best odds guaranteed on UK and Irish races.
