Betting predictions: What is a BetShare?
If you are not familiar with our BetShares, you could be missing out on a great tool to help your betting predictions. Are you undecided about which team to bet on? Are you wondering where the most bets have been placed? BetShare is the answer to your questions. Read on to find out how BetShares can give you unique insight in the betting activity ahead of all major sport events.

What is a BetShare?

A BetShare is a percentage representation of the share of the number of bets on the different sides of a match published ahead of all major sports events, including Premier League, Bundesliga, La Liga, Grand Slams, NBA games and much more.

If Arsenal is playing Man City and the BetShare percentages are 34%, 26% and 40% this means that 34% of the bets have been placed on the Gunners, 26% on the draw and 40% on the Citizens.

In simple terms, a BetShare tips you off as to which team has received the majority of bets. If, for example, Arsenal is playing Man City and the BetShare percentages are 34%, 26% and 40% this means that 34% of the bets at Pinnacle have been placed on the Gunners, 26% on the draw and 40% on the Citizens.

To ensure that you get a reliable insight into what is going on in the betting market, we only publish BetShares after a significant number of bets have been placed. And to keep it even more interesting, we update BetShares regularly, with the one released an hour before the start of a match being calculated using the highest number of bets.

How can BetShares help your betting?

Although we advise you to do your own research before deciding which team to bet on, BetShares can be an invaluable tool to assist your betting. Keeping in touch with the market sentiment on a regular basis not only gives you a perspective of your betting decisions against the bigger picture, it also helps you detect betting trends.

Make the most out of BetShares by combining it with Pinnacle Lite, the only odds alert app in the market. Pinancle Lite is easy to download and gives you access to recent odds changes for each market. From browsing the latest odds for all the big sports and leagues and visualising historical odds movement in handy charts to setting notifications for when the odds are right for you and betting within the app, Pinnacle Lite and BetShares are guaranteed take your betting to a whole new level.
