TopBetta Sports

TopBetta’s sports betting product won’t offer you the same variety of markets that you will find with some Australian bookmakers. In fact a recent betting research report found that TopBetta offered an average of 21 markets for every fixture, which was some way short of the median offering of 61. But for the average sports punters, their choice of markets will be okay.

While they don’t provide the full array of markets, TopBetta do give customers access to an innovative Sports Tournament product. Most sports tournaments are focused on one round of fixtures in a particular league and involve players spending BettaBucks in any of the markets for any of the fixtures on that round, while season-long tournaments are also on offer. Fees for the tournaments are between $2 and $110 and prize pools can go up to $10,000.

With TopTippa, punters can also land prizes for their NRL or AFL tipping. All you need to do is choose your winners each week of the NRL and AFL seasons and you could pick up one of the weekly prizes or maybe land the $1 million top tipster of the season prize.

When it comes to the available odds on their sports markets, TopBetta is on a par with the standard for the industry, with their usual line bets generally being around $1.91. They don’t provide many of the specialist markets that can be found with some bookmakers, they do a reasonable job of covering the major sports and most popular leagues.
