Unibet have dedicated sections for specific events such as Euro 2016 and past World Cups and Olympic Games. New sports and markets are regularly added so the sports betting service is topical. Unibet are not the largest online bookmaker in terms of the number of active customers but their range of sports compares favourably with their main rivals. The sports product features the main betting sports. The sports menu also includes some minor betting sports but the focus is on football and tennis and the range of leagues and markets for these sports is described below:
The sports menu lists each sport initially by the number of bets and then in alphabetical order. Football accounts for about 90% of all markets and the next popular sport is tennis. At the time of writing Unibet had a menu option for Euro Football 2016. The level of service for this tournament will likely be repeated for future World Cups and European Championships. Copa America is the continental tournament for the Americas and is covered within the Unibet football product. These tournaments generally take place during the close season of the major leagues in Europe and South America.
The tournament in France is potentially the biggest event in the history of sports betting. The outright market is open and anyone of six teams could be the international champions of Europe. Outright odds are available for each of the six groups and customers can also bet which teams will progress to the next round. Unibet provides background information for all 24 teams taking part and highlights the popular bets. Main European international teams have qualified so betting around the continent will be great. There are many competitive fixtures over the month of the Euros.
Football leagues and markets can be browsed by country and competition. Favorite bets on league are on the English Premier League which receives great media coverage. The major teams have great global followings and teams in the division are under foreign ownership. Television money means Premier League clubs can pay high wages and the money in the game has attracted the elite players. Matches in England are covered with over 100 markets related to the match result (1X2) market. Odds for matches in England and the other main European and South American leagues feature odds under the following headings: full time, half, 3-way handicap, Asian lines and match events.
Unibet’s customers can read expert opinion on the major matches. The face of this service is Glenn Hoddle who managed England at the 1998 World Cup in France. He is a respected broadcaster and writes a weekly analysis piece for a Sunday newspaper. Hoddle played for England and left Tottenham Hotspurs at the peak of his powers to plat football in the main league in France. He is well qualified to advise Unibet’s customers on their betting strategy for the main tournaments, leagues and Cups. Match odds are complimented by detailed statistics which highlight the latest results for both sides and some recent head-to-head results. Unibet also has a betting news section which publishes the latest football stories with an emphasis on betting. Expert tipsters highlight the great bets for matches and tournaments.
Tennis has grown from providing very little interest to be very popular sport across the industry for betting. The schedule for both the men’s and women’s game runs from January to November. It is rare when there is not a tournament and blank weeks usually correspond with ties in the Davis Cup and the Fed Cup. Tennis is global sport with tournaments in each continent in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. The season is built around the four Grand Slam tournaments which are as follows:
- Australian Open in January and February on hard courts
- French Open in May and June on clay
- Wimbledon June and July on grass
- US Open on hard courts in August and September
The majors have a draw of 128 players while the other tournaments have draws of 64 or 32 players which are determined by a qualifying procedure and qualifying tournament. The ‘qualies’ are usually played in the days leading up to the main tournament. The leading players are contractually advised to play in the Grand Slam and Masters tournaments and a minimum number of other events each year.
Unibet’s tennis coverage is the comprehensive for the major tournaments and also offers a wide range of markets for Masters events which are one level down from the majors. The men’s tour culminates in the ATP Finals in November and the women’s tour end of season event for the great players is the WTA Finals in October. Unibet also offers odds for Challenger and International Tennis Federation tournaments which are feeder tours for the main tours in men and women’s professional tennis. Unibet has markets for matches in men’s singles, women’s singles, men’s doubles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles.
Tennis is particularly suited to in-play betting and cash out because of changes in momentum and price changes. Odds change after every point which opens up opportunities to trade live matches. The majors and Masters events are shown live on television and many other matches have live streaming on the Unibet website. Customers who have an account with Unibet can place bets on live tennis matches often and regularly. Indeed it is possible to bet on individual points, games and sets as well as the match result and cash out during live streaming. Rules apply for uncompleted matches which determine how bets are settled.
Unibet offers several markets related to the match result for individual tennis matches. The service is limited and other sportsbooks offer a wider range of betting options. The company puts a great deal of emphasis on soccer which means other sports suffer by comparison. Soccer is a big market while tennis is more of a niche betting sport. Tennis bets are placed in-play rather than before matches begin or in the outright markets. Odds are updated during tournament, mainly for the four Grand Slams. Customers can bet on the majors well in advance through updated outright markets. Odds in these markets fluctuate in line with players’ results and injury breaks.
Basic tennis market is the two-way which involves backing one player to win a match or odds to progress to the next round. Other popular tennis match markets are to win each set, the number of sets, number of games in a set and correct score betting for games in a set and sets in a match. Game handicap betting is available for some matches whereby the underdog gets a head start and the odds are designed to attract two way money when a match is uncompetitive. The cut-off point for betting on a tennis match before play begins is based on the projected time for the previous matches on a court with adjustments for weather delays. The time a pre-match market closes can be adjusted if the previous matches take longer than expected.
In-play customers can bet who wins a specific point and the total games in each set. ‘Action Betting’ allows for spot betting on points. Odds fluctuate after each point and significantly when there is a break of serve. One break can flip the favourite and underdog and the original market is restored after a break back. Unibet displays the score for live tennis matches by points, games and sets. Live streaming is available once a bet has been placed. Customers are made aware of possible transmission delays and Unibet do not take responsibility for in-play bets made on the basis of scoring information. Matches that are live on Unibet TV are indicated by a small logo. With matches taking place in several tournaments each week in different time zones live tennis indicated by a logo is available through live streaming and score updates.
