If you do not compare the odds and stick to your favourite bookie only, you might end up with much lower winnings. Just check the difference between the highest and lowest odds on Watford win.

With £10 bet you and possible success you end up having £120 instead of £180. And that is £60 (33.3%) difference. With betting on Liverpool you have 6.5% difference and with a draw 17,7% difference. To check the numbers on your own we have created a Bookmakers payout calculator.

Check the last column of the table. There you see how much the bookmaker is paying back. The higher the number, the better for the punter. The last bookie (youwin) is with his odds very close to the combination of the lowest odds of all bookies. UK’s number one Bet365 is also on the list of the lowest odds. The result is the following:

You never know if your bookie is not offering you some garbage, unless you check. No matter how long you have been with him.

Bookmakers know how to make money and they know it very well. They have in average 3 – 11% statistical advantage and a team of employees monitoring the outcome.

Odds comparison makes a difference since you never know if your bookie is not offering you some garbage
