Welcome to our definitive ranking of the best in the business...
<div><p>The 2019/20 football season is looming large on the horizon and excitement is mounting among punters as they plan their strategies for the new campaign. At OddsMarket, we are committed to helping you navigate the complex world of sports betting. We have therefore decided to compile our list of the top five bookmakers you should sign up with ahead of the new campaign.</p><p>It is important to have accounts with a number of different bookmakers, as each one has different strengths and weaknesses. We have analysed the bookmakers that consistently have the best odds, offer the broadest market coverage, promote the most attractive bonuses and provide the best live streaming services. If you sign up with all five of these betting sites, you will give yourself the best possible chance of enjoying a profitable season.</p><h2>Bet365</h2><p><a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bet365">Bet365</a> is the best all-round bookmaker for football fans and you should definitely sign up for an account. If you do, you can take advantage of its market leading £100 matched deposit bonus offer and then immerse yourself in a really slick site. It has the best in-play section on the market, replete with a market-leading streaming service and an intuitive layout. It also offers partial cash out, which allows you to take a portion of money and run before game ends if you are worried about the other team equalising. You can even edit your bet once a match has started, as this tool allows you to remove selections from it in-play.</p><div><a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bet365">Bet365</a> may not have the most attractive odds on every market, but it is often pretty close. It also offers a number of intriguing features, bonuses and promotions. You can take advantage of its bet builder, which allows you to combine multiple selections into one in order to earn more value. Promotions like its <a href=";a=59dcc594-9557-4784-9a35-53f1809bba0b&amp;f=3" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bore Draw Money Back">Bore Draw Money Back </a>offer covering correct score, half-time / full-time and scorecast markets also provide plenty of extra value. It is a safe, reliable betting site with a strong, rounded offering and it is definitely worth keeping in your arsenal for the new season. Refund for any football game that finishes 0-0 at bet365. Applies to losing pre-match bets on any Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time or Scorecast markets. Bet restrictions and T&amp;Cs apply. New and eligible customers only.</div><div>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;p style=\"text-align:left;undefined:undefined\"&gt;&lt;br /&gt;\n&lt;span style=\"font-size:18px\"&gt;&lt;a class=\"btn btn-default btn-sm btn-action\" href=\";amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;amp;f=1\" rel=\"nofollow\" target=\"_blank\" style=\"background:#2e963d;color:white;font-weight:bold;padding:11px\"&gt;Go to Bet365&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;"}[/]</div><h2>Paddy Power</h2><p>The Irish bookmaker is famed for its stunt marketing, which has seen it take bets on the Oscar Pistorius trial and spray paint a polar bear with the St George’s Cross, but beneath the outrageous exterior lies a really strong football betting site. The greatest advantage of having a Paddy Power account is the betting offers you can capitalise on. It provides the best acca insurance on the market, which can be really handy if you like combining multiple selections into one bet. If one leg of your four-fold (or higher) lets you down, it will give you a refund and the minimum odds per leg are just 1.20 (1/5), which is strong.</p><p>It also offers a brilliant, on-going range of promotions. <a href=";a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Paddy Power">Paddy Power</a> will give you a free bet of up to £20 each week and a £20 free bet for every friend you refer. It bills itself as the home of the money back special and, at the time of writing, it had refunded £730,000 in free bets over the last month. You will find random offers like money back as a free bet if a particular team wins, or on all losing first goalscorer bets. There are frequent odds boosts on big teams. There are also competitions for you to enter.</p><div>Beyond all that, its football betting offering is solid. There are not quite as many leagues covered as Bet365, but it goes pretty deep. The odds are about average, but it does sometimes have the best prices on particular markets, particularly both teams to score. The in-play service is pretty strong too. Another great benefit of Paddy Power is that it is typically among the first betting sites to offer odds on a particular game, so if you want to get in ahead of the market it makes a great choice. You might additionally want to check out sister site <a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Betfair">Betfair</a>, as its sportsbook offers many compelling bonuses and you can sometimes find great value on its exchange.</div><div>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;p style=\"text-align:left;undefined:undefined\"&gt;&lt;br /&gt;\n&lt;span style=\"font-size:18px\"&gt;&lt;a class=\"btn btn-default btn-sm btn-action\" href=\";a=7d5e74d4-680e-4b0e-9037-354bb5755381&amp;f=3\" rel=\"nofollow\" target=\"_blank\" style=\"background:#2e963d;color:white;font-weight:bold;padding:11px\"&gt;Go to Paddy Power&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;"}[/]</div><h2>William Hill</h2><p>Hills was launched in London all the way back in 1934 and it built up its business by taking bets on horse racing. However, football is its biggest sport now and it offers more markets than all of its rivals. It does not cover quite as many competitions as Bet365, but within a particular match you will find a peerless range of markets. You can often find a good 250 betting markets on a single Premier League game, and you can even find around 150 markets on Serie B matches, so you are bound to find something that appeals.</p><p><a href=";a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="William Hill">William Hill</a> is a great bookmaker to have in your collection of accounts, because you can choose from all manner of exotic bets and find value plays that other sites do not offer. On our Sports Bet Daily show, we often give out tips like the “Alex classic” – both teams to score and over 2.5 goals – or we will find value by selecting a team to win and under 4.5 goals, or the highest scoring half being the second half, and you can always find these sorts of bets, and many more, at William Hill.</p><div>Like Paddy Power, it is about average in terms of the generosity of its odds, but it does sometimes lead the way with the sharpest lines. It also boasts a number of intriguing promotions, like Golden Goal. This sees your bet paid as a winner, up to £25, if the team you bet on scores first but fails to win the game. It also offers great acca boosts and odds boosts on a rolling basis, while you can get almost any market priced up via its #YourOdds programme and its app is fantastic.</div><div>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;p style=\"text-align:left;undefined:undefined\"&gt;&lt;br /&gt;\n&lt;span style=\"font-size:18px\"&gt;&lt;a class=\"btn btn-default btn-sm btn-action\" href=\";a=2c8cf93d-d981-4545-8ff3-0e77f6f048e0&amp;f=3\" rel=\"nofollow\" target=\"_blank\" style=\"background:#2e963d;color:white;font-weight:bold;padding:11px\"&gt;Go to William Hill&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;"}[/]</div><h2>Pinnacle</h2><p>Football fans should definitely sign up with <a href=";a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Pinnacle">Pinnacle</a> due to the sheer generosity of the odds it offers. It has won a place in the hearts of millions of punters by taking low margins and offering some of the sharpest lines on the market. It is a no frills bookmaker, and you will not find many markets to bet on within a particular game, but if you simply want to bet on a team to win a certain match you are likely to find the best price available at Pinnacle.</p><p>Sometimes the likes of Bet Victor, Marathon or Black Type will offer stronger odds, but on average Pinnacle is the king of great prices. In the US, they refer to it as a reduced juice model, and it has been extremely successful. It does not offer promotions or bonuses, there are no sign-up offers and it does not advertise. Its reputation comes from word of mouth, and many bettors love it.</p><div>Apart from having strong odds, the site is uncluttered, user friendly and very easy to use. It is great for things like esports and tennis, but its football section is also strong. You will find a number of obscure leagues covered, including the Belarusian top flight, and many punters like being presented with a small, focused range of markets to choose from on each match.</div><div>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;p style=\"text-align:left;undefined:undefined\"&gt;&lt;br /&gt;\n&lt;span style=\"font-size:18px\"&gt;&lt;a class=\"btn btn-default btn-sm btn-action\" href=\";a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&amp;f=1\" rel=\"nofollow\" target=\"_blank\" style=\"background:#2e963d;color:white;font-weight:bold;padding:11px\"&gt;Go to Pinnacle&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;"}[/]</div><h2>888 Sport</h2><p><a href=";a=8e57de00-8c0e-4848-b6da-ea2a0f565fb1&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="888 Sport">888 Sport</a> is powered by Kambi and it offers a colossal range of league from around the world for you to bet on. If you get bored of the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A, you can find odds on games taking place in the Japanese second division or the lower leagues in Mexico. It also boasts some very attractive odds and it is possibly the best on the market for both teams to score and other special betting options on football. Its live betting selection is solid and the site is bright and lively, while its mobile offering is pretty strong.</p><div>Kambi also powers Unibet, so you will find a similar offering there, but what sets 888 Sport apart is its bonuses and promotions. Many sites will offer boosted odds on a match, but only allow you to bet £1, whereas <a href=";a=8e57de00-8c0e-4848-b6da-ea2a0f565fb1&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="888 Sport">888 Sport</a> will often let you bet £5 at a higher price. If you win at odds of 4/1 or higher, you get a free bet. It also offers a bet builder that allows you to get creative with football wagers, while it gives away £888 in free bets on a daily leaderboard. If you are looking for a fifth site to add to your arsenal, 888 Sport is a great choice.</div><div>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;p style=\"text-align:left;undefined:undefined\"&gt;&lt;br /&gt;\n&lt;span style=\"font-size:18px\"&gt;&lt;a class=\"btn btn-default btn-sm btn-action\" href=\";a=8e57de00-8c0e-4848-b6da-ea2a0f565fb1&amp;f=1\" rel=\"nofollow\" target=\"_blank\" style=\"background:#2e963d;color:white;font-weight:bold;padding:11px\"&gt;Go to 888Sport&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;"}[/]</div></div>
