Hi guys, am opening this thread for us to share ideas which I believe really matter. Many bettors often tend to ignore the type of bookmaker they have to go for and focus solely on odds offered. From experience I think having an account with an exchange and another with a sportsbook is great for any given betting strategy. What do you guys think? Do you fancy sportsbooks or you are more inclined towards exchanges? And why?

I am completely new in Betting world and I found exchanges an interesting way to bet. What do you say Giresse?

I think it all boils down to each and everyone's betting preferences and betting approach. Some prefer exchanges and others prefer sportsbooks, personally, I'm caught up between both. Being a newbee to the betting world, I'd advice you to stick first with sportsbooks, and after you must have gained some experience you can switch to exchanges. And speaking about sportsbooks, vip-ibc is one of the best betting softwares which can help you place bets with the highest sportsbooks odds. Of course you can also do some research and find out other alternatives but I doubt you'll find anything better!

Regarding exchanges specifically, we all know Betfaire is right up there and apart from Orbit (their mirror site), there is no match for them.

With my betting and trading techniques I find the in-play scenarios offered by Betfair are more useful and the 5% commission is low when you can often gain better starting price odds and in-play value and even less commission if you use Betdaq.
I have heard so many stories over the years of bookmaker accounts being closed or limited as soon as you start winning or using various arbing techniques. I think the laws on bookmakers being able to limit the winners but readily welcoming the losing punters are poor and very bet unfair.
