TopBetta Sports Betting

TopBettaís sports betting product doesnít offer the variety of markets that you will find at some of the main bookmakers. A recent survey revealed that TopBetta offered an average of 21 markets on every fixture, which was considerably less than the median figure of 61. But for the regular sports punters, their selection of markets will be satisfactory.

While they donít offer the full range of markets, TopBetta do host an innovative Sports Tournament product. Most sports tournaments are based on a single round of fixtures in a specified league. Players wager BettaBucks in any of the markets for any of that weekís fixtures to see who can scoop the weekly prize, while there are also season-long tournaments.

In terms of the odds offered in their sports markets, TopBetta performs as well as the other main Australian bookmakers, with their standard line bets around the $1.91 mark. It is fair to say that they donít offer a number of the specialist markets you can find with the big bookmakers, their selection of markets on the main sports and leagues is good.
