Betfair, considered the largest betting exchange in the world, is the best option to place your bets. Have you thought about buying the bets that are available in the market right away or placing your bets at the odd you desire and waiting for someone to buy them? That's how you'll make money, with the variation of the odds!

Founded in 2000, Betfair is one of the hottest names in the sports betting industry. Licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority and the Gambling Commission of the United Kingdom, and in partnership with FC Barcelona, Arsenal and Juventus, Betfair is a name that is revered by sports fans around the world. In recent years, Betfair has also become one of the most popular betting sites in Nigeria.
