Since Sky bet started with #RequestABet on Twitter the bet builder markets have grown to be a major part of every betting site’s platform. There is a huge variation between what is on offer and the levels of service you will get. These vary vastly from having to tweet to get a price through to instant prices on everything from goals to throw-ins!
What Is A Bet Builder?
Simply put, bet builders allow you to place multiple bets on the same match and get a price for them all to come in.
Previously you could not bet on the same match for different markets other than the standard result and goals type markets. Now with bet builders, you can bet on absolutely everything in a football match. These do vary vastly by betting company.
Here is what markets you can find on football bet builders.
- Match result
- Half betting – 1st half or 2nd half result
- Goals – totals, under/over, team goals, half goals
- Player goals – Score first, score last, score any time
- Player assists – First assist, anytime assist, last assist
- Corners – Match corners over/under & exact, team corners, half corners, corner match bet
- Throw-ins – First throw, last throw, total throws
- Shots – Total shots, on-target shots, player shots, player shots on target
As you can see there is a lot to choose from. The more you add the higher the odds will be. You can build multiple legs from the above and have longer odds or you can keep it small and get lower odds.
Some apps now offer these types of bets outside football but football remains the most popular.

Every bookmaker we cover on the site offers a bet builder in some form or another. We have gone through all our data to find you the ones that offer instant prices. In our opinion, these are far better than tweeting for a price and usually have more options too.

When Should You Use A Bet Builder
Bet builders are absolutely perfect to use when a bookmaker isn’t already offering the market within their odds. If there’s a bet you wish to play, all you need to do is request it.
They are often riskier bets, so it is always important to study things like form, head-to-head, and player information before placing your bets. This type of research can always inform your betting and increase your chances of winning, so before you even contemplate adding a market to your bet slip, you should take that on board.
Using a bet builder can really boost your odds and should always be considered if you think there’s good value in playing multiple markets that could well pay off.
