The Premier League has taken its first international break of the season and punters are set to be reviewing their ante post portfolio.

Backers of Liverpool and Manchester City will certainly be happy with how their respective clubs have started, with the Reds winning all four of their games to lead the Citizens by two points.

Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling have been the star men in front of goal for Pep Guardiola, with the Argentine netting six goals in three starts whilst his English teammate has five.

Betfair Sportsbook offer Sterling at 5/1 (6.0) to win the Premier League Golden Boot for the first time but bettors can get extra value on the Betfair Exchange, where he is priced at 13/2 (7.50).

What is the Betfair Exchange?

The Betfair Exchange is the world’s largest sports betting exchange. It follows the model of a stock exchange but replacing share trading with betting odds on events in the world of sport, politics and entertainment. T&Cs apply.

On any betting market, there are two sides of the bet. On one side, there are those who think an event will happen (backers) and on the other, those who think it won’t happen (the layers).

The Betfair Exchange allows customers to bet against each other rather than a traditional bookmaker, meaning players can set their own odds which may be longer than regular sportsbooks.

Backers and layers get bets ‘matched’ as long as they agree on a price (the odds) that an event will or won’t happen.

Premier League Golden Boot Betting

The race for the Golden Boot has no clear front runner after four matches, perhaps unsurprisingly, with Aguero having scored six goals but only leading the market by the slightest of margins.

Indeed, Betfair offer 7/2 (4.50) that the City striker wins the award for a second time. However, punters are able to get 4/1 (5.0) on the Betfair Exchange, with Harry Kane priced at 5/1 (6.0).

Sterling is certain to attract some bettors at 13/2 (7.50) whilst the 11/2 (6.50) price on Salah offers considerably more value than the 9/2 (5.50) available with the Sportsbook.

How does the Betfair Exchange work?

By matching customers, rather than taking the risk itself, the Exchange provides the option to ‘lay’ - betting on something not to happen.

Betting against other customers removes the need for the margin that fixed-odds bookmakers incorporate into their prices and provides the opportunity for a more efficient marketplace, which is why you can often get better odds on the Betfair Exchange. Instead, customers pay a small commission, but on winnings only.
