Odds - Average
We calculated the margin for TAB by analyzing the odds they offer. We further ranked them in one of the following three categories:
From 1% to 5%: Low
From 5.01% to 7%: Normal
From 7.01% to 10%: High
We got our results by taking into account the odds for final result outcomes measured in line with the over / under for different soccer leagues. Getting the average results using this method, we were able to obtain the margins for each league and the overall betting margin for the bookmaker.
TAB has an overall average margin of 6.8% for soccer and falls in the normal category. In the first section with Spanish La Liga and Seria A, the margin is at 6.83%. With Premier League and Championship, in the second section, the margin is at 5.86%. Finally, taking the Netherlands Eredivisie, Polish Ekstraklasa and Austrian Bundesliga into account, the margin is at 7.71%.
Range of Sports and Markets - Good
Aussie bettors already know that TAB is an excellent place for betting on horse racing, but our team of experts have investigated if TAB is also reliable for bets on other sports. We found out that TAB actually offers a strong selection of betting markets for over 20 sports.
Football fans can bet on over 35 markets for the AFL games and we must say that the prices they offer are competitive and on-par with other leading Aussie bookmakers. As for the International leagues, there are over 100 betting markets available for the European top competitions like the Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1, Serie A, Bundesliga. However, for less popular leagues such as the Turkish Super Lig, Polish Ekstraklasa or the Nordic leagues, the number of betting markets available to bet on are under 50.
Betting on football can be profitable, especially if you pick your betting market correctly. There are many markets that can provide value, although most punters bet on the popular ones like a win/draw/lose, both teams to score, over/under, etc.
Football punters can use some helpful tools on the TAB platform and here we would like to mention The Edge and the Cash Out features. The Edge is a predictive analytics tool, which uses historical data and algorithms to identify the possible outcomes of football games. The Cash Out feature gives the punters the ability to settle their bets before the end of a football match.
At TAB, you will find every single greyhound, thoroughbred and harness race available on the Australian territory. There is also an abundance of betting markets on International horse races from the UK, New Zealand and South Africa.
Weight and Sky Rating are displayed for each race and all the typical betting options are available, including Win, Place, Trifecta, Exacta, Quinella, Duet, Quaddie, Running Double and Parlay. There is also a ‘Compare’ feature that allows you to compare key aspects of a horse race such as weight, class, track, distance, jockey, etc.
TAB customers can also bet on future meetings and competitions, including the Melbourne Cup, Epsom Handicap, the Everest, Turnbull Stakes and Cox Plate among others.
