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.
