Odds — normal
We calculated the margin for Bet-at-Home by analysing the odds they offer. We further ranked them in one of the following three categories:
From 1% to 5%: Good value
Over 5% to 7%: Average value
Over 7% to 10%: Poor value
We’re getting our results by taking into account the odds for final result outcomes measured in line with the total goals scored for different football leagues. By getting the average results using this method, we were able to obtain the margins for each league and also the overall betting margin for the bookmaker.
Bet-at-Home has an overall margin of 6.98% for football and falls in the average value category. In the first section using odds from the Premier League, the margin is at 6.20%. The second section with Spanish La Liga and Italian Serie A, the margin is at 6.93%. Finally, by counting the English Football League One, Austrian Bundesliga and Polish Ekstraklasa, the margin is at 7.81%.
Range of Sports and Markets - Good
Range of Sports: Bet-At-Home cover a wide range of markets for pre-game and live betting but notably not horseracing!
There are two things to mention here, firstly as we say they don’t actually offer the chance to bet on horse racing. There is nothing, not even The Grand National. The second point to make is that the sports available very much reflects the company’s German roots. Very few traditional UK-based bookmakers would offer four separate skiing sections! Whilst on the other hand UK centric sports are not covered equally well, rugby league and rugby union are both under the same ‘rugby’ tab, which is not really appealing.
Range of Bets and Markets: The Football coverage is good, and as with every bookmaker, it will depend on what league you are betting on to have well over 100 markets to chose from on average. They have all main markets such as final results, correct score, over/ under markets and asian handicap lines. The player markets on the other hand are limited and have no specials and there’s no way to request them and have them added to your betslip.
One other thing that separates Bet-at-home are their tennis odds, with many alternative bets available both pre-game and in-play. Here they often have an edge over the other bookmakers.
Betting Limits: Bet limits are high for most major markets, but as expected they get reduced for lower leagues and more niche proposition bets.
In-Play Betting - Good
The inplay events you can wager on are listed on a menu down the left-hand side of the page and major sports like football and tennis are well covered, but the selection of other sports for which events are regularly taken inplay is comparatively limited.
When an event does go into live it benefits from a large selection of available markets all with good odds. Bettors will also have access to match statistics which can provide a live match tracker, line-ups and text commentary of the game. As well as the game information comprehensive form, head-to-head and other statistics from the past are also often available to see.
A unique feature of Bet-at-home in-play service is for Esports fans who like to bet on League of Legends as they have their own section of in-play markets.
