Betfair Betting Exchange
All bets on Betfair have been placed there by users who either want to have a bet in the normal way (back), or offer odds to other punters (lay).
Bets are matched between people with opposing views.
When you "back" a selection (be it an individual, a team, horse, dog or other), you are betting that it will win. This is just like betting with conventional bookies.
When you "lay" it, you are betting against it winning. For example, if you're betting in a market on which team is going to win the Premiership and you lay Man Utd, you offer odds to other punters who wish to back Man Utd. If Man Utd don't win, then you pick up the backer's stake. If Man Utd wins, then you pay out. This is what bookmakers traditionally do.
You never know who you are betting against, your privacy and the confidentiality of your bets is maintained by Betfair's secure site. www.betfair.com
