We all love to get value when we are betting. If you have ever been to a racecourse and entered the betting ring, half the fun is scouting around the different bookmakers to see which one offers the best odds on the selection you want to back in the next race.

When you bet online with a site like bet365 Sport though, things are a little different. Unless you use a service that will check and compare the odds across betting sites (and assuming that you have lots and lots of accounts with all the different betting site options), you’ll tend to accept the odds offered by your preferred betting provider.

Now that’s all well and good if your betting site offers you the very best odds on your chosen markets all the time, but the fact of the matter is, there are too many bookmakers with too many different offers and odds-makers for that to be the case all of the time.

That means sometimes the odds with your bookie are not going to be the top market odds available, but that’s ok because sometimes, you can find that some markets will have better odds.

Especially when they have been subjected to one of the numerous bet365 bet boosts that the site offers across a wide and varied number of sports, fixtures and betting markets at bet365 Sport.

What Are Bet365 Bet Boosts?

As the name suggests, Bet Boosts are markets that have been originally priced up by the oddsmakers at bet365 Sport and then which have been enhanced (lengthened) in order to make them more appealing to customers.

For example, on a standard market for a horse race, Horse A may be priced up at 3/1 and Horse B may be priced up at 6/1. However, if the race had 10 runners and Bet365 wanted to boost the appeal of Horses A and B in particular, they may elect to boost their prices to 4/1 and 7/1 respectively.

Bet Boosts are not exclusive to bet365 Sport. You can find them at almost every bookmaking site nowadays (certainly any ones worth their salt will either have them or something similar) but essentially these boosts work in exactly the same way; enhancing the standard price to make a bet on that selection more attractive.

Can I Select Which Bets To Boost At Bet365 Sport?

At the present moment, it is the betting site that decides which markets from a sporting event that they are going to boost.

Not only will they decide the markets, but they will also decide how much to boost the price by and also just how many different boosts that they would like to offer on a specific event.

Obviously, the more markets there are to place a bet on, for any given sports event, the more options there are for bet365 to offer bet boosts on that event.

Similarly, bet365 want these bet boosts to appeal to as many punters as possible, so it is natural for the site to target the big and popular sports events, although you can find bet boosts available for almost any sports event from time to time.

Where Can I Find The Bet Boosts At Bet365 Sport?

There are a couple of ways you can find the bet boost options available to you at bet365 Sport.

If you just want to select from the Bet Boost markets for your chosen sport, click on the link for your chosen sport and then when the page updates with the list of markets, if you look down the list, you should see an option for Bet Boosts.

Click on the link for this and you will then bring up all the available Bet Boosts for that specific sport. Be aware, there are lots of these for some sports, such as horse racing and football in particular, so finding a market you want to back can take a bit of time.

Alternatively, if you decide to place a bet through navigating through the options available for your selected fixture, then you will also find the bet boosts for that fixture listed alongside the standard betting options too.

What Is A Super Boost?

On some events, bet365 Sport may decide to offer a boost that is greater in value than ordinary bet boosts, they call these markets Super Boosts and they are easy to spot as the link to them is in yellow, as opposed to the standard green colour used for standard boosted bets.

With a Super Boost, the price on the market has been improved far more than is standard, even for a boost bet. As you can see in the screenshot example, with this Super Boost, bet365 have improved the price on Sadio Mane having more than 0.5 shots on target in the game from 8/15 to 11/10.

Now, if we convert those odds to decimal, you can see just how much value that Super Boost offers.

At the original 8/15 price, if you had bet £10, you would have been paid out at 1.53. Which means for a £10 stake, you would have won £5.30 plus got your £10 stake back for a £15.30 return.

However, with the improved odds of 11/10, this means you are paid out at 2.10, which is better than even money (2.00) and means that for a £10 bet, you would actually win £11 plus get your £10 back, for a total return of £21.

So as you can see, the Super Boosted price offers you more than double your winnings than you would have got with the standard price for the same bet.

What is The Boost Or Super Boost Max Stake?

Currently, bet365 do not have a max stake stated for any Boost or Super Boost betting option.

Instead, the latest information suggests that the limit is based on the account of the customer.

Essentially, what bet365 advises customers to do is place their desired stake in the relevant box on the bet slip when placing a Boost or Super Boost bet.

If the stake you want to bet exceeds the limit bet365 are willing to accept from you for the bet, then you will see a message posted on screen advising you of the fact.

You can then alter the size of the bet yourself, or click the button which will adjust the bet stake to the maximum amount allowed for that particular Boost or Super Boost bet.

It seems reasonable to assume that the bet limit for each customer, and on each boosted bet option may be different for each individual customer and for each Boosted or Super Boosted bet.

Are Just Single Bets Boosted?

That’s a good question and I’m pleased to say that no, it is not just single bets that are boosted at bet365 Sport. You can also get some good value bet boost options when you place a bet on Bet Builder bets too.

Bet365 can decide which bets to boost and they can include singles, doubles and Bet Builder bets within that, or indeed any other bet they like.

However, you tend to find it is the more popular betting options that will get boosted, simply because they are popular with customers.

Bet Boosts are a great way to get some fantastic extra value at bet365 Sport and as such, you should always have a look through these markets when you plan to place a bet online to ensure that you are getting the best possible value for your bet.
