FIXED ODDS AT BETSSON SPORTS
Betsson Sports offers reasonably priced fixed odds across most sporting fixtures & is in our top ten recommended bookmakers. Betsson does not make it into the very top tier of 'best odds bookies' (Bet365 and Pinnacle Sports) based on last seasons odds analysis.
The Betsson betting exchange prices are often very good and the 4% commission is reasonable for a betting exchange by industry standards.
NOTE: BookieLabRat.com tested 570 online bookmakers & 10 betting exchanges this quarter and failed 92% of them. BETSSON Sports passed with a credible 82 out of a possible 100 points.
This review is not the formal analysis, just a high level summary of the key aspects we like and don't like about BETSSON Sports.
ASIAN HANDICAP ODDS AT BETSSON SPORTS
Betsson Sports consistently offer good strong prices for Asian Handicap bets but as for Fixed Odds bets does not quite make it into the top tier of 'best price' Asian Handicap bookies.
OTHER BETS AT BETSSON SPORTS
If the BookieLabRat team had to pick a single outstanding feature of Betsson, it would be the level and extent of football coverage! Betsson Sports and Betting Exchange offer a huge range of ever changing betting opportunities including extensive football coverage, tennis, ice hockey, golf, cricket, Formula 1, Rugby Union & all of the major American sports (NFL, NBA, etc). You can also place bets on business, politics & the outcomes of TV series, film industry awards, etc.

Betsson offers the usual sports bet singles and combination bets. Outright, first scorer, last scorer & overall event based outcomes are all well represented in the betting offers. No 'out there' offers or major novelty bets. Betsson Trader is new if you're into the financial market and Betsson has just added Bingo to their offerings too.
