If you’ve visited Bet365 recently, you may have noticed a new market labelled ‘Enhanced Prices’ which is available on football matches in selected leagues and competitions. These enhanced odds apply to the home/draw/away market and are slightly higher than the standard odds.
The standard odds are still available to customers and so you may think, why would anyone select the standard odds over the enhanced prices?
Well, the main difference is that Bet365’s Early Payout Offer and their Euro Soccer Bonus don’t apply to the enhanced prices.
Bet365’s Early Payout offer is extremely popular with both matched bettors and regular gamblers. The key to making a long term profit from this offer is to keep qualifying losses to a minimum by finding matches where the back odds on Bet365 and close to the lay odds on a betting exchange such as Betfair Exchange, Smarkets or Matchbook. If customers were able to qualify for the Early Payout Offer with the enhanced odds then it’s likely Bet365 would see a lot of matched bettors take advantage of this and take a lot of value from them. Therefore, only the standard match result odds apply.
The difference between Bet365’s standard odds and enhanced odds
After comparing Bet365’s standard match result odds against a number of other bookmakers, they seem competitive.
Looking at Bet365’s standard odds above, we can see that they are higher than the majority of other bookmakers. However, their enhanced odds for this match currently are:
- Hull: 2.4
- Blackburn: 3.0
- Draw: 3.5
Which gives customers slightly better value.
If you are placing a standard bet on an event for which Bet365 offers enhanced odds, be sure to take them. However, if you are intending on qualifying for their Early Payout or Euro Soccer Bonus offers, you need to take the standard odds otherwise you will not be eligible.
