Best Odds Guaranteed is one of the most common promotions amongst most online bookmakers these days. At Betfair UK, it is available on all UK & Irish horse races and selected UK & Irish greyhound races, and is open to both new and existing customers.

The way it works is this: if you take a price on a horse and the Starting Price (SP) is bigger, then you will be paid out at the bigger odds.

For example, if the price taken on the Betfair's Sportsbook is 9/1 and the Starting Price is 10/1, then you'll be paid out at the bigger price of 10/1. In other words, it ensures your racing bets are truly as good as they can be.

It does not end there either. Best Odds Guaranteed works in tandem with Betfair Acca Edge – this means that you can get your money back as cash if one selection lets you down in return for a reduction in odds.

So, is Betfair Best Odds Guaranteed worth checking out? Absolutely – and we'll explain why below!
