Are you interested in betting on sports leagues at bet365? I decided to give it a go and check out the bet offering at bet365 and explore different sports and leagues. The offer is huge and I am happy that I found it neatly organised and easy to browse through. These are some of my personal favourites.
English Premier League
English Premier League is the most popular football league in the world. The interest in the league has only grown over the years and now it has a truly global following, especially among punters.
I found the Premier League bet offering at bet365 sports leagues to be easy to navigate and plentiful. Besides the standard bets such as 1X2, Double Chance, Over/Under Goals or Correct Score, bet365 is also offering a Goalscorers betting market. If you follow the English Premier League as closely as I do, you will find excellent value in these bet types. Goalscorers market offers a number of players from both teams and odds to score first, last, any time during the match or multiple scorers.
I also found favourable odds in Half Time – Full Time betting in bet365’s English Premier League bet offering. I think there is excellent value there, especially when betting on heavy favourites which usually offer low odds. For example, betting on Liverpool vs Watford match and choosing Liverpool to win offers much less value, than choosing Liverpool to win at both half-time and at the end of the game.
bet365 sports leagues also offer Live Betting, including the English Premier League. For more information about live betting at bet365 check out my review of the live betting offering at bet365.
UEFA Champions League
UEFA Champions League is my second favourite football sports league to bet on at bet365. Champions League is the most prestigious club football competition in the world, where 32 teams are competing for a chance to be crowned European Champs.
I have already mentioned the bet types I usually go for on football matches in the previous paragraph talking about the English Premier League, so I will mostly focus on bets that are more in line with Champions League.
At bet365’s I can choose the Top Goalscorer, Winner of the Competition and Nationality of the Winner. Once the Group Phase of UEFA Champions League is finished, you can also bet on which team will progress through each knockout round taking both games to be played into account. The key part is that bet365 updates the odds and bet markets on these types of bets after each match that is played in the UEFA Champions League. If you are persistent and browse daily, this is a great way to look for value bets at bet365 sports leagues betting markets.
NBA Basketball has been a long-time favourite among punters across the globe. The sole fact that the NBA season has more than 1200 games played by 30 teams, gives constant action and opportunities for bettors.
bet365 offers a number of NBA betting markets, including my favourite prop bet Player Performance. bet365 selects a number of NBA games and a few players from each team, and offers prop bets for Over/Under Points that a selected player will score, or a combined prop of Over/Under Points+Rebounds+Assists that a player will score. Most of these prop bets are offered at 5/6 or 10/11 odds. As an NBA junkie I found a lot of value in betting on player performances in the past. If you follow the NBA closely and are knowledgeable about the matchups, there is a lot of value in these bets.
Besides the prop bets, NBA Basketball betting market at bet365 also include classic Money Line, Spread and Over/Under Total Points bets (including overtime). For more adventurous punters bet365 also offers Winning Margin, Race to 20 Points, Team Total Points, Odd/Even Total and Team Points etc.
Additional value can be found at Futures bets (Winner of the Competition, Conference or Division, as well as who will be the Regular Season MVP) where long-term bets can really pay off.
National Hockey League (NHL) is the biggest and certainly most famous hockey league in the world. bet365 offers a number betting markets on NHL among the sports leagues they are promoting to punters.
The first thing that caught my attention while browsing the NHL offer was the Race to 3 Goals bet being offered. You can choose either of the teams to score 3 goals first or neither of them. I found tremendous value in this bet, especially when betting on tightly-contested games between defensive teams.
The standard bet offer includes the Money Line, Puck Line (Spread/Handicap type of bet), Over/Under Total Goals, Double Chance and Team to Score First. Another great find is bet365’s offer to bet on Alternative Puck Lines, basically allowing you to choose your own line at different odds for either of the teams.
As is the case with NBA, NHL betting offer at bet365 sports leagues offers Futures, where you can bet on Championship, Conference and Division winners (sorry, no Regular Season MVP here).
Other Sports Leagues
Betting offer at bet365 sports leagues is huge, as all of the major sports and competitions are covered, as well as a huge number of minor leagues in a variety of sports. Of course, I found football to be king in this aspect particularly the English minor competitions such as English Championship, English League One, English League Two and English National League. If you are a true fan of the football being played in the UK, these leagues often offer better value than some of the major competitions.
Basketball betting offer is huge as well, but I would recommend checking out the Euroleague betting markets. A smaller number of teams (16 teams in the competition) makes it easy to follow and find value to bet on.
I hope this review helps you out in finding value in bet365 sports leagues betting markets. Don’t be afraid to explore and try different sports and leagues, each bettor is unique in terms of which betting markets suit them the most.
