It matters more when there’s money on it and it’s very true – Sport and especially football becomes even more exciting. You feel more passion, more pleasure if it goes your way and more pain when things go against you. We take a look at Skybet football.
How does Skybet football rate ?
We take a look at the overall look and feel of Skybet Football and their other sports betting options on the Skybet website.
When we put it through its paces we came to an underwhelming conclusion that Skybet’s website is pretty ordinary considering their giant brand name. It doesn’t have the user-friendliness of other bookmakers with football and sports sections available on the left and at the top but with offers underneath the top menu which are cut off and don’t show all the information. Generally, it lacks flow in its links and navigation. Overall things could be improved for better user experience.

Skybet Football Odds
Skybet football betting is not the most generous and falls somewhere in the lower middle rank of odds value from other sportsbooks. Skybet football betting is relatively weak with a high average margin of 6% – you can find better value elsewhere. A saving grace is that Skybet are better value on horse racing offering up to 8 places on the bigger handicap events with odds comparable to other top bookmakers offering less attractive place betting terms.
How good is the market coverage and selection of bets on Skybet?
Despite the less than attractive odds Skybet football offer good market coverage, well they would, wouldn’t they! In terms of volume, the markets covered on Skybet football are plentiful. Where Skybet football is strong is the offers they provide for European and lower leagues. E.g in Poland, Greece, Belgium, Israel, Switzerland, Turkey and Asian football leagues. The same, however, cannot be said of other sports markets.
What about In-Play football betting.
The in-play punter will find some good betting offers if you drill into the football in play menus. Once again most other bookmakers offer the same, if not better football betting options

A quick word about Skybet’s Super 6 promotion.
What is Skybet Super 6?
Skybet’s Super 6 promotion allows punters to predict the final outcome of 6 randomly pre-selected football fixtures for your chance to win up to a quarter of a million pounds every week. If the weekly Jackpot is not won, the player that scores the highest overall will be rewarded with a guaranteed £5,000 prize.
What are the chances of winning Skybet’s Super 6?
You may think a shot £250,000 every week or so seems possible. Think again, what are the chances of actually winning super 6?
To win Skybet Super 6 you need to correctly predict the correct score of 6 football matches. Which is way more than long shot! If you correctly predict the result of one football match you are beating the odds, times that by 6 and you have achieved something not dissimilar to a lottery win, in other words, nigh on impossible. Look up recent winners, they occur about as often as football pools winners did back in the ’70s and ’80s.
For example, a 10/1 correct score to the power of 6 is a million to one. Then the odds of hitting the Skybet super6 jackpot are a million to one and probably far higher than that!
With a prize pool of £250,000, you are selling your personal data to sports betting giant Skybet for peanuts!
