Matchbook offer a wide range of market options. This includes a substantial offering of in-play markets, and the option to enter into betting exchanges with other users. Less popular sports have been given greater attention compared to other online bookmakers, with American football being a key market they are looking to develop.
Matchbook’s stated policy of expanding its betting markets one at a time with a view to providing substantial liquidity means that it cannot offer the same breadth of sporting events as some other exchanges such as Betfair, but that may well change in time if the company continues to expand.
For now, the main areas of liquidity surround horse racing, football, American Football, greyhound racing and basketball, as seen by their prominence on the left-handed side of the website’s home page.
However, if customers click on the “All Sports” icon, several other sporting markets can be accessed.
An in-running betting facility is also a central part of the home page along with a casino link which includes blackjack and roulette.
Odds at Matchbook vary depending on the sport and event you’re betting on, but they’re pretty much industry-standard.
Live Betting & Streaming – No live streaming yet
The site lacks live streaming, commentaries and radio which are all available with industry leader Betfair and which would engage with punters trading in-play.
The website has an ‘Insights’ section which is a must-read for punters who are serious about making a profit on the sport(s) of the choice.
Expert advice is provided not only on individual sporting events, but betting strategies and the way to move forward with the maximum opportunity to win money. This service offers a greater depth of information on sports news, as well as pointing customers in the direction of offers and promotions that are available through other websites
There are also regular podcasts which focus on NFL, football and horse racing.
In order to elevate themselves above the competition within betting exchange websites, Matchbook also offer a number of supplementary additions for users.
These include a Matchbook Insights section, which acts as a detailed news round-up of all relevant sporting issues, debates and betting related information. They also offer a Betting Insights section, which offers advice and tips to customers regarding the best markets available.
