What is Bet Against?
If you're better at picking losers than winners, Bet Against is the new Betfair app for you. Using Bet Against, you can make a profit by betting on teams not to win. For example, if you pick Chelsea in their game against Barcelona on Bet Against, you will win if Barcelona win or the game is drawn. It's that simple. If you think you can find the team that isn't going to win, download the Bet Against app today.
How does Bet Against work?
When you make a selection in the Bet Against app, it places a lay bet on the Betfair Exchange. In the Chelsea v Barcelona example, you are essentially offering odds to other customers on the Exchange for Chelsea to beat Barcelona. Once someone on the Exchange wants to back 'Chelsea' to win, your bet on them to lose will be matched, and you'll win if Chelsea don't.
