The Sportsbet website can be a bit overwhelming for first-time punters with all of the sliding promotions on display. However, once you’ve selected a market all of the irrelevant information is removed so it becomes much easier to make optimal betting decisions. In addition, the betslip is always open on the right-hand side of the screen so you can keep track of your pending and active bets.
One of the most important factors to consider when placing a bet is the profit potential. This can be derived from a number of methods, including the odds at the time of your bet placement and your stake. By understanding the profit possibilities, you can whittle down available markets to those that fit your budget and betting style.
When looking to place a bet on horse racing, the odds are a vital consideration. While Sportsbet showcase their schedule of deductions (which they state is only a guide), competitors like Neds offer more competitive odds and extra features such as a Same Game/Race Multi Builder function, tips, statistics, insights, live streaming and speedmaps. Also, when a horse is scratched from a race the odds of that bet are generally reduced by a significant amount. Sportsbet are the home of Justice Payouts and refunds so if your winning bet is denied by unjust means you’ll receive a payout or refund. This is especially useful in situations where your best bet loses due to a protest and you’re left with less than ideal odds.
