Supabets Odds & Markets

Supabets has a selection of 25 betting categories covering sports, leagues, and events from all across the world:

SoccerSupafutsal 5-a-sideAussie RulesBadmintonBaseball
Ice HockeyMartial ArtsMotor SportRugbySnooker
Table TennisTennisVolleyballWaterpolo

As well as sports betting, Supabets also has Supanumbers lotto betting. Horse racing and e-sports are notably absent, but hopefully, these will be added in future updates.

Supabets Football Betting Tips

Soccer has the biggest range of options at Supabets, hence why you’ll find it right at the top of the sidebar. There are over 50 countries to choose from, expanding into 140 different league and cup competitions, covering pre-match, in-play and futures markets.

Supabets Football

The big games from the main leagues such as the English Premier League will have around 500 betting options per match, so a huge amount of choice. These cover all the usual bets such as handicaps, over/under, correct score, etc, as well as individual player wagers. 

Supabets Horse Racing Betting Tips & more

At the time of writing, Supabets does not offer betting on horse racing. They do offer an extensive range of other sporting options to punt on.

Ice Hockey is the next biggest sport after soccer, with 13 countries to choose from including USA, Russia, Sweden, and Germany. Obviously, the main leagues like the NHL will have a greater market depth than those with lesser-known teams, but most matches will still boast over 140 markets.

Other Sports
Basketball is another popular betting option at Supabets, with leagues from 14 nations and a few international fixtures, too. Again, the NBA has the most market depth, but there are still plenty of different bets for all the other available matches. 

Tennis is also well covered, with action from the ITF, ATP, WTA, and Challenger tournaments. Cricket and rugby are well represented here too, and fans of the local teams will not be disappointed. 

Overall we are very impressed with the coverage at Supabets, so we ran a few comparisons with a couple of rival sportsbooks to see how competitive the pricing is. As you can see from the table below, the odds aren’t amazing, but they are fairly competitive. It’s worth remembering that this is only a small selection of wagers, and may not be representative of Supabets pricing as a whole.

Supabets Live Betting

Supabets offers live in-play betting on popular sports such as soccer, basketball, tennis, volleyball, ice hockey, and baseball. Soccer has the most market depth here, with the big matches having over 300 wagers. 

All the usual in-play bets are available, such as next goal, who wins the rest of the match, handicaps and over/unders. There are a graphical match tracker and real-time stats updates for all the in-play events, and if you have a funded account you can watch a live stream of some selected matches.

Supabets Website and Login

For some reason, Supabets has made the decision to have the background of their website black instead of white. Obviously, this is a personal preference, and it does help differentiate Supabets from the majority of sportsbooks, but with the amount of information on the screen at once it can look very crowded. 

If you can get past that, the website is well laid out. Most sportsbooks have a lot of options in the footer menu, as does Supabets, but it has also put these links into a header menu for ease of use. Things like the results and statistics sections, promotions, FAQs, and contact details can all be found here.

The sporting categories are in the usual place down the left-hand sidebar. Clicking your chosen sport will display the list of available nations in the sidebar as well as the full list of worldwide leagues (divided up by nation) in the centre of the screen. Most of the big-name sportsbooks only display a list of leagues after you have selected your chosen nation, and Supabets would do well to follow that example. 

Supabets Homepage

The sign-up process is very straightforward, with only a few fields asking for basic contact information. Once you have filled those in and agreed to the terms and conditions then you’re ready to submit your FICA documentation and place your initial deposit. 

Betting Products
There is plenty going on at Supabets, as you can see. Here are just a few of the products and features that we really like about the website.

Results and Statistics Section
Supabets has a results section where you can choose the date, the sport, and the event, and it will display the results. There is also a standalone statistics page, powered by Sportradar, which has team and individual player statistics for all the leagues across all the sports offered at Supabets.

Welcome Offer
The welcome bonus at Supabets entitles you to a 100% match on your first deposit, up to the value of R10,000. That’s one of the best welcome offers out there, and one that we would highly recommend.

Offers and Promotions For Existing Customers
Supabets knows how to look after its existing customers, too. As well as the deposit match welcome offer, it also has cashback specials, multi-bet specials, first bet bonuses, and free bet promotions. 

Supabets Mobile App

Supabets has developed a mobile app which offers the slickest and most intuitive betting experience for your particular device. Whether you’re using a smartphone or a tablet running iOS or Android, the Supabets app is the best way to place your wagers on-the-go. It also includes news and review articles, as well as previews of big upcoming matches and events.
