Oddschecker is a free online betting odds comparison service which first went live in 1999. It aims to give customers direct access to the industry’s best prices from leading bookmaking brands. The site is owned by Leeds-based Sky Betting and Gaming.
Put simply, it helps you achieve the best possible odds on a bet for maximum return. Trying to do this by checking the countless available online bookmakers yourself would be physically impossible.
It’s arguably the biggest and best website of its kind and was certainly the first. It works with all the major online bookmakers and can show odds in real-time as well as serving as a handy analytics tool, for example offering comprehensive market reports.
And it’s aimed at both the casual and seasoned gambler, so suits a wide variety of punters and pockets.
Oddschecker also shows odds on non-sporting events, such as elections.
How Oddschecker works
First, choose a category from the horizontal menu across your screen. You’ll find a range of betting fields, from racing to boxing, tennis, golf and football.
Next, select the match or market for which you wish to compare the odds – e.g. English Premier League. Then just click on the odds you want to choose (you’ll see the best price highlighted in bold) and open your betting slip.
Finally, you can actually place your bet via this slip. This means all the hard work is done for you, and you don’t even need to leave the Oddschecker site. Alternatively, if you prefer, you can click on the link to the relevant bookmaker’s site.
Are there any catches?
We can’t find many, frankly. Remember, it’s completely free to use, works efficiently and you don’t even have to register with Oddschecker to use it. However, registering does give you access to some exclusive offers and daily newsletters, plus the chance to enter competitions and tailor your experience.
You may potentially get marginally better odds with a bookmaker that isn’t listed with the site. Finally, you should be aware that Oddschecker does carry bookies’ ads, which may lead some to question its impartiality.
