One of the country’s most popular sports, basketball is very well represented on Bet365. There are currently nine different leagues and tournaments from around the world that the player can wager on.
Included in the list are the NBA, EuroLeague and the NCAAB. Something a little different than other sportsbooks, Bet365 actually offers the markets for the league’s first, which can be used for any of the games taking place in that league.
For example, if the player clicks on a market within the NBA such as ‘highest scoring half’, then they will be taken to a list of the games for that league including the odds for those games from whichever market the player chose, in this case for which team will have the highest scoring half.
This is a very helpful and can prove to be a much more efficient way to present the odds. Many of the markets are broken into five or six categories. These include Main Markets, Team Markets, Quarter Markets, Game Markets and Half Markets.
Inside of these main categories you can find the regular lines that you would normally see. Markets on the winning margin, team totals, handicaps, correct scores for each quarter and the team with the highest scoring quarter are all available.
If you would instead to browse options based on the games instead of the standard markets, the individual matchups are listed for each league below the markets. These games can have more or less than the standard options, depending on which game is selected.
The NHL is the featured league in the Bet365 hockey section. In addition to America’s premier league there are the KHL, Swedish Hockey League and the Switzerland NLA.
Futures bets in this section include major tournaments as well as a couple for the NHL. You can bet on which team will win the Stanley Cup, who will win each division and which teams will win each conference.
There is also at the time of writing a bet on the winner of the IIHF World Championship 2020. The market selection for the leagues is extremely good, with each of the games in each league featuring over 100 markets.
Interestingly enough, the NHL does not always feature the most markets for games. Main bets like those on the puck line, spread and totals are there for all games. Different markets include highest scoring periods, bets on who will win each period and double-chance bet.
The categories of markets are divided into game betting, main, scoring, 1st period and 1st ten minutes. In the scoring category, you can find bets on which team will score first, on goal streaks for one team, race to goals and time of the first score.
First period bets offer markets like what the correct score of the first period will be, double chance bets on the team to win or draw. The bets in these categories are usually not the first place you will go or the most often, as the main and game betting categories will have the most popular bets.
The world’s most popular sport usually features a strong showing on most bookmaking sites. On Bet365, there are unsurprisingly many different leagues from all over the world for players to choose from.
Included in the leagues are soccer’s top five leagues (Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, La Liga and English Premier League), as well as the MLS, Argentina Superliga, Australia A-league, Japanese J-league and quite a few more.
Bet365 lists the leagues under the continent they play on, and you can find leagues from many parts of the world. You can still find the markets listed on the sport’s main page, but they come second here to the leagues.
This is because the markets for soccer depend heavily on the prominence of the league. For Premier Leagues in a specific country, the number of markets will remain quite similar, with each having an average around 80 totals.
The MLS for example, has around 85 markets for each game being played at the time of writing. Markets here include the main outcome on the game, over/ under bets, double chance and bets with Asian handicaps.
There are other common soccer bets as well including predicting whether both teams will score or not, the winning margin, correct score, etc. Almost every tournament or league cup is included on Bet365’s site.
Just about all of the leagues included also have futures bets on the league champion as well as on the league cup champion.
Bigger competitions such as Champions League, Europa League and the World Cup are also included, and you can also find a schedule for international games between countries with odds available.
For Champions League futures, some of the markets available include who will win the competition, who will reach the final, the top goal scorer and bets on the individual groups.
