Frequently asked questions
What is betting content?
Sports betting content can be broadly split into two categories There is evergreen betting guide content (e.g. what odds mean, explanation of different types of bets, betting strategy approaches etc) and event-driven content (articles that offer tips on certain games, previews of games that discuss possible/likely outcomes and the bets available, traditional sports opinion pieces). This content can be written, audio (e.g. podcasts), and/or video (e.g. YouTube content).
Do betting sites take a commission?
Exchanges (like Smarkets and Betfair) take a percentage of all bets made. Sportsbooks’ main technique is to set the odds in their favour by including vigorish (or vig). Also known as juice, margin, or the overground it is built into the odds to help bookmakers make a profit. In essence, it’s a commission charged for laying bets.
