Get better odds on Liverpool vs Arsenal with the Betfair Exchange | Goal.com
22nd August, 15:40The Gunners head to Anfield on Saturday evening in the Premier League and the Betfair Exchange allows users the chance to be on both sides of the bet
Liverpool host Arsenal in the pick of this week's Premier League games with both sides looking to maintain their perfect starts to the season.
The Reds have won 11 matches in a row in the competition and are just one win away from setting a new club record for most consecutive Premier League victories, which would keep them top of the table.
Currently second on goal difference behind Jurgen Klopp's side, the Gunners will be determined to make it three wins from three games although they have not won at Anfield since September 2012.
Betfair offer 8/15 (1.53) that Liverpool take all three points here whilst Arsenal are 9/2 (5.50), but punters using the Betfair Exchange can get extra value on the latter, with an away win at 5/1 (6.0).
What is the Betfair Exchange?
The Betfair Exchange is the world's largest sports betting exchange. It follows the model of a stock exchange but replacing share trading with betting odds on events in the world of sport, politics and entertainment.
On any betting market, there are two sides of the bet. On one side, there are those who think an event will happen (backers) and on the other, those who think it won't happen (the layers).
The Betfair Exchange allows customers to bet against each other rather than a traditional bookmaker, meaning players can set their own odds which may be longer than regular sportsbooks.
Backers and layers get bets 'matched' as long as they agree on a price (the odds) that an event will or won't happen.
How does the Betfair Exchange work?
By matching customers, rather than taking the risk itself, the Exchange provides the option to 'lay' - betting on something not to happen.
Betting against other customers removes the need for the margin that fixed-odds bookmakers incorporate into their prices and provides the opportunity for a more efficient marketplace, which is why you can often get better odds on the Betfair Exchange. Instead, customers pay a small commission, but on winnings only.
