Betfair’s Special Bets, What Are They?2017-12-29 14:58:00
When one thinks of Betfair they usually think of just one thing sports betting. And that’s no surprise really, Betfair is one of, if not the premier site(s) for sports betting in the world. They have all of the resources and data collection of the massive Sky Sports behind them so they can offer you the very best and the most accurate info in sports betting action. Sports betting is also the biggest draw and therefore the biggest part of the Betfair platform. People just love the thrill of it, having a bet on your favourite team to win a big game adds so many layers of excitement and thrill on top of an already thrilling event.
For that reason, it may be a little bit of a surprise to someone who doesn’t already know that they also offer a great range of odds on the biggest events in the world of television and film, politics and pretty much anything else you can think of. Nowhere else will you get such amazing odds for the world’s biggest events in film, television, politics, world events etc etc. There really is a great range of events for you to bet on in the ‘Special Events’ Part of the Betfair site.
How It Works
Betting on ‘Special Bets’ works in exactly the same way as betting on sports does, you find the certain event and put down a wager on the outcome you expect at the odds that you are given at the time. If the outcome comes out the way that you predicted it to and you have placed your bet on that then you will win your stake back plus your winnings and you will go away a very happy customer, simple.
In order to find these ‘Special Bets’ all you have to do is head over to the main Betfair page and click on the ‘All Sports’ link in the top right along the black bar. This will give you a drop-down menu of, you guessed it, all the sports that Betfair have for you to bet on. This menu also includes something that isn’t a sport in the ‘Special Bets’ link. Click on this and you will be brought to a new page with the very best special bet odds on it.
You’re probably curious as to what exactly is on the Betfai ‘Special Bets’ page then you can go ahead and check it out for yourself and possibly place a bet on something that catches your eye. Below I will go through some of the more interesting and wacky ‘Special Bets’ that Betfair has going right now.
Donald Trump Specials
Of course Betfair has some bets on the impeachment of America’s biggest and most orange embarrassment in a while.
You can bet on whether he will be impeached in his first term with even odds or you can place a bet on the specific year that you believe he will be impeached, 2017 (3/1) 2018 (4/1) 2019 (16/1) 2020 (33/1).
At Betfair you can also place a bet on who you think will be the next actor to play the Doctor in BBC’s Doctor Who after Jodie Whitaker finishes her stint in the Tardis. This contains the usual names such as Kris Marshall (7/1), Tilda Swinton (16/1) and Richard Ayoade (33/1) along with some decidedly silly outside bets such as Katie Price (110/1) and Katie Hopkins (110/1)
This is an admittedly pretty strange one, you can place a bet on when you think the existence of extraterrestrial life will be proven.
The further away from the present you get the better the odds become: 2017 (3/1) 2018 (18/1) 2019 (22/1) 2020 or later (1/7).
