One of the major problems with betting is that you don’t get good odds on the favourites.
There’s no value in betting on Barcelona or Real Madrid, not unless they’re 5-0 down going into a half-time or a second leg anyway. So it’s always a real welcome change when bookmakers offer price boosts on odds right across the sport.
We’re seeing more and more betting apps offering price boosts and enhanced odds these days, so if you’re looking to boost your odds, you really are in luck. Some offer them on set markets and matches while others let you select what bets you want to boost daily.
What Are Price Boosts?
Simply speaking, price boosts are where bookmakers enhance the odds slightly on popular markets. These can be anything from one point up to a few more and help punters to feel they get more value from their betting account. The bets are calculated by the bookmaker so they always select bets that they are happy to take on at a higher price. Whilst some look tempting it is always worth checking the stats behind these bets before backing them.
They’re generally offered to all punters and the likes of the William Hill app are one of the better ones from these offers.
These offers can be from anything from Premier League football through to the Cheltenham Festival. They are always on offer around major betting events.
Types of Price Boost
There are three types of bet boosts you will find across most betting apps –
Enhanced Odds For All Customers
Enhanced odds are pre-set by the companies and are usually displayed on the home pages or the sports hub pages. They cover a lot of sports but are most commonly available on football betting and horse racing. Here is an example below from the William Hill app –
These are on the football home page and are a selection of accumulators where the prices have been increased. These were 7/1 to 9/1, and 10/1 to 14/1. This is a good boost if you were going to place those selections anyway. Have a read over the stats for the teams being boosted to make sure it is as good value as it appears.
Boosted Prices For All Customers
William Hill – One of the best offers for existing customers
As a customer, you get 1 boost per day on any accumulator with 3 or more outcomes* (*Terms and conditions apply, offer subject to change/ withdrawal at any time).
Ladbrokes – Offers daily odds boosts.
This comes in the way of a daily boost token that can be used in any sport. You need to look for the boost symbol to make sure you can use it on the market you are looking at.
They also offer price bosts on selected football matches and accumlators. Go to the football home and you will see them halfway down the page. Swipe to the left to see more prices.
Enhanced Odds for New Customers
Instead of standard welcome offers so companies offer enhanced odd for new customers who sign up. These are usually crazy prices on teams that are most likely to win. These vary all the time and cover most major events such as football, horse racing major events, and boxing/ UFC events.
Let’s say Real Madrid is taking on Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League. Madrid will be heavy favourites for the game, with the odds likely looking something like this*:
Real Madrid – 1/16
Draw – 12/1
Vik Plzen – 33/1
With a Price Boost, however, that may change to something crazy like Real Madrid to win now 5/1, with your winnings then being released in free bets.
*Example only, not real odds or a live offer.
Which Bookmakers Offer Price Boosts?
Most bookmakers will offer some form of Price Boost, with the likes of the Paddy Power, William Hill and Ladbrokes betting apps particularly popular for taking advantage of these offers.
The Betfred app is another that has special offers when it comes to Price Boosts. Their Double Delight and Hat-Trick Heaven Offers a boost when a player scores two or three goals.
The bookmaker doubles or trebles the odds of a first goalscorer pick should they go on to score two or three.
It’s well worth shopping around for the best Price Boosts as you’ll obviously be able to earn higher odds at some bookmakers compared to others.
