Margins 2017
All sports bookmakers create a book with a margin in their favour. Some bookmakers spend heavily on marketing and have high margins others try to attract their customers with better odds and lower margins. Most restrict the amount you can bet on a particular match at these margins, some clearly show this amount and some do not.

The table below shows the typical margin levels that can be achieved using UK Bookmakers - be very careful choosing some foreign bookmakers that may appear to offer significantly better odds as it might not be so easy to withdraw any winnings.

Lower margins are offered on the less popular or lower leagues but this is not necessarily a deterrent as these leagues can also be those more affected by fanatical gambling although it is also true that local knowledge may have an affect not picked up by past results.

OddsPredictor typically selects fewer matches in those leagues with higher margins favouring the bookmaker.
