Hello to all,

Looking for a reliable bookie who has teams over/under 0.5 (team to score) market. This is what I miss @bet365, or Pinny, where I place majority of my bets. I would use it mostly for combos @~2.00 in 70% of a cases (singles when they beat Pinny line only).

At the beginning I eliminated the likes of bet-at-home or bwin, and came up with those 3 bookmarkers, with Marathon being my first choice. Below are the pros and cons found on here and other forums/sites for them.

+ best odds, they even beat Pinny in some markets with their reduced juice
+ wide range of leagues, o/u 0.5 on 90% offered football events
+ quick payouts (?)
- quick and low limits
- slow payouts (?)

Expekt and Unibet are somewhat similar, with Unibet having more leagues offered, but also more horror stories.
I want to hear your opinions to see if something has changed meanwhile, never used Marathon, and Expekt/Unibet last time back in 2008.

Thanks.

As I cannot edit post, I'll add here that I also eliminated the likes of Ladbrokes, Paddy Power, Stan James and Will Hill because limited number of leagues they offer.

Three posts in a row... hope won't be a prob.

Will Hill suggested on another forum, so it's 4 in the game now. They have variety of leagues with desired market.

All the books you mention are very fast to limit or boot you out if you show any talent for getting good numbers.

The best four are very clearly Betfair, Pinnacle, SBOBet and Matchbook though you may not find all the leagues you are looking for especially at Matchbook but they are offering commission free soccer this season so their odds are mostly the best.

I use Pinnacle for singles, which are cca. 90% of my total bets. I want one bookie just for combos. I'm stuck between Marathon and Will Hill, the latter two are probably out of question.

Case closed, it was between Marathon and Will Hill, I was about to open account @Marathon when suddenly one guy told me that bet365 have such market, under the name ''clean sheet''.
Not that good offer as in Marathon or Hills though, but should be enough for now.

Judging by responses I got on other places, will consider Marathon sometimes in future for sure.
