Betfair is an online bookmaker and exchange. The bookmaker website works the same way as a standard bookmaker and any bets are placed on odds against the house. The Betfair Exchange is different, in that it allows punters to bet against each other. When using the Betfair Exchange, the user sets the odds, not the bookmaker.
An extension to the Betfair sportsbook and exchange, is Betting.Betfair.com, which basically acts as a betting guide. The layout of the website uses the same colour scheme as the main Betfair website and it is very straightforward to find the sports you are interested in. In terms of usability, the website is very good and if you find odds you would like to bet on, simply click on the link provided and you will be taken to that market.
