During the last couple of years online betting on sports has become very popular in Asia. Before people made bets with offline bookies, but that has always involved many problems. Your money is not guaranteed, the odds are bad and bookies allow you to get yourself in debt. Betting online with a reputable and trustworthy site is a much better option, what site should you choose?
The biggest mistake people make when signing up for a site is not comparing betting odds. Some sites offer 10-20% better odds not just one a single game, but on all games. This is especially true with many Asian sites like Sbobet, W88, Dafabet and M88 who try to profit 10%+ from a single bet, while the bigger sites settle for 1-1.5%
I have met very many people who say that after they changed to a good site and started to get 10-20% more from each bet they started to win money. Think about it, if you had won 20% more from every bet that you ever made, and you had that money on your betting account, how much would it be?
Dafabet has been growing in popularity among Asian players, they are also the official sponsor of English premier league team Fulham. These are the betting odds that they are offering for round 4 of premier league games. To understand how Dafabet odds compare to other bookies we will add all of their full game odds (showed in red) together, and then we can compare that number to other sites and determine how they rank.
All Dafabet odds combined comes to 136.06, this number alone tells me nothing, but when compared with others I can rank each bookie and tell you which you should use.
Pinnacle is the most popular sports betting site among professional players, they claim to offer the best betting odds and they do not close accounts of winning player like all other bookies. They have been operating since 1998 and are considered the most trustworthy betting site.
Pinnacle premier league odds combined is 152.925. That is 12% better than Dafabet, and currently takes the #1 spot.
Sbobet is another popular website in Asia and they have a large number of players, so let’s see how good are the odds that they offer.
The total odds of the premier league games at Sbobet come are 132.28 which currently takes them to third place.
Bong99 also known as Bong88 is a betting site I have never heard of before so it will be interesting to see how they rank with other players on the market. Overall I would avoid betting sites that have not operated over 5 years, but sometimes if the odds are good enough it is worth the risk. On their website the the odds are hidden unless you register so I am guessing they are not that good.
188bet is another big betting site, they run promotion offers where you can win free trips to actually see your favourite premier league club playing live in England, that is very cool. But lets see how their odds compare to others, very often people get blinded by the deposit bonuses and promotional offers but forget to check the real odds.
188bet English premier league odds combined comes to 143.77, which is quite good, currently they take the second place behind Pinnacle sports. They also offer a 100% signup bonus upto 100$, but lets keep going.
I wanted to write about Mibet but when looking for their odds it seems they are just a middlemen between Sbobet, ibet888 and 8bong. When choosing a bookie it is best to avoid these kind of middle site because that just multiplies the risk that you will have problems when withdrawing money and probably the odds you get are worse than on the main site.
QQ288 and QQ188 seems another site that takes odds from different providers, on their website it is impossible to see odds for games and that should always be a caution sign.
Fun88 has been been an established bookie since 2008 and they are also the shirt sponsor of Premier League club Newcastle. Here are Fun88 odds for Premier league games:
This is a big surprise for me, I have never heard of them before but Fun88 betting odds combined comes to 150.32 which is a very good result and takes the second place. Great job Fun88!
Now for a serious heavy hitter in the industry – bet365. The biggest name in online sports betting and the loved site of many. But how are their odds really?
The total odds of all 10 games combined comes to 146.45, which is surprisingly bad considering how big they are.
Now lets look at w88, another new and growing bookie in the Asian market. W88 is the official shirt sponsor of new Premier League club Wolves so I have high hopes for their odds.
W88.com Premier league odds total for the round 4 of games comes to a total of 137.02 and that puts them on the last place. Very cool looking website with many innovations but if the odds are so bad it is not worth it, you are impossible to win any money.
This was the odds comparison of English Premier League round of 4 betting odds on home team win, draw and away team win. All odds combined together to get a picture of the average rating of the bookie. I could not see odds for QQ288 and QQ188.
Even if you bet for fun you still deserve the best odds, best professional sports betters have a return of about 6%, if you start with a website that overs 15% lower odds you never even had a chance.
Ideally you should have accounts in atleast 3 sports betting websites so that you can shop around for odds, for example the odds of Newcastle United to win in this round game were 31.75 at Fun88 and 20 at 188bet. Bet 100$ on Fun88 get back 3175, profit of 3075. Do the same bet at 188bet get back 2000, profit of 1900. Crazy Difference!
If you have any other Asian bookies that you wish to be compared leave a comment and I will add them to the next comparison.
