Football is one of the most popular sports to bet on in the UK, and is worth an estimated £1.4bn to the gambling industry.

The industry is only ever growing and the sheer number of bookmakers to choose from makes it hard to determine the best.

But, with a few key factors, you can find the best football betting sites with ease.

How Do We Pick The Best?

New bookmakers are appearing all the time, with unique and innovative designs which puts pressure on some of the more established bookies to raise their game.

To compare and determine the best, we look at three main factors:

  • Market depth and odds
  • Live betting experience
  • Betting on mobile
  • bet365

Arguably one of the best sportsbooks in the UK, bet365 was always going to make the top two. You will find unrivalled depth to their markets and one of the largest collection of football events available for you to bet on.

But, their odds are not as competitive as they should be, and rarely ever feature in the top three best odds available in BettingLounge’s free daily betting tips.

However, we recommend every punter to have an account with them for their live streaming options alone. In their bet to watch service all you need is a funded account or a bet on select events to view a live stream.

Their mobile app sets the benchmark for UK bookmakers while delivering a fast, reliable and safe service.

But, asides from bet365's great welcome offer they have very little promotions to benefit football punters.


Bethard is a new bookmaker that launched their sportsbook in early 2018 to the UK market.
They offer a safe, innovative and highly valuable gaming experience for UK football punters.

Bethard are almost always in the top three highest odds available on BettingLounge’s free daily betting tips, while often featuring the highest odds in the Premier League.

Their markets and events depth are massive and will satisfy even the most seasoned football punters.

They include almost all the major and minor events in the footballing world and offer wonderfully high odds and low betting margins.

Sadly, they are yet to offer a bet to watch service but their live betting is fast, reliable and user-friendly on all devices.
