In this article we explain all you need to know about the Betfred Best Odds Guaranteed promotion including how to claim the offer as well as the key terms you should know about.

Best Odds Guaranteed has become almost standard these days amongst online bookmakers and is a promotion every horse racing punter should be utilising.

With Best Odds Guaranteed from Betfred, 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 you take a price on a horse at odds of 20/1, but the SP is 25/1, then you’ll be paid out at the bigger price of 25/1.

Furthermore, on top of Best Odds Guaranteed, Betfred also offer money back if your horse finishes 2nd as a free bet up-to £10.

The offer is open to new and existing customers.
