For those new to sports betting or new to betting on exchange platforms, this guide explains how to place a bet on the Betfair Exchange.

First things first, you need a Betfair account and you need to be logged in.

If you don’t have a Betfair account, then registering is simply done via the ‘Join Now’ button on the top right of the Betfair Exchange homepage. Enter your personal details and your account is good to go.

The Betfair Exchange has literally thousands of events available to bet on at any given time, but their useful side bar menu on the left means you can quickly navigate the sports and events to find what you’re looking for. Betfair  also provides a useful highlights section on the homepage listing upcoming and/or popular events that makes it super quick to navigate the Betfair website and get to where you want to go.

Choose your sport

In this guide on how to place a bet on the Betfair exchange, we’ll select our sport using the side navigation bar. We choose ‘Soccer’ and are greeted by a page similar to the homepage, only now it is listing only events for our chosen sport. We then use the highlights to quickly navigate to the Champions League Final, but we could have selected a competition or country from the left navigation bar.
