As mentioned numerous times in this Picklebet review, sports are not the first priority of Picklebet. Over the years since they launched, however, they’ve consistently developed a deeper pool of sports markets to the point where they now have more than many smaller Australian betting sites. In this section, we will take a look at some of the particular sports that Picklebet offers, and what kind of markets they have available for those sports.
As you’ve no doubt come to understand by now, it’s in esports that Picklebet’s true focus lies, so evidently they have a large number of different esports markets. This is in a large range of different games – it includes eSoccer, LoL, Dota 2 and Call of Duty to name just a few. Within those esports, your markets are pretty much limited to head to head and sometimes game score, but this is all that you need for a typical esports matchup.
Australian Rules Football
Aussie rules football, and more specifically the AFL, is one of the first sports that any betting site in Australia will focus on, with its enormous popularity throughout the country – with the exception of New South Wales and Queensland – meaning it’s very popular to bet on. Picklebet offers a solid range of markets for every individual AFL games, including player props – which typically offer a good gauge for how many markets a bookie offers – while their futures selection is also solid.
Australia’s favourite summer sport is another which any Australian bookmaker worth their salt will put a bit of time into developing markets for, and Picklebet Australia is no exception. They offer markets on all the big games, but it’s not just Australian internationals you’ll be able to bet on. You can also get international games between non-Australian teams, domestic Australian leagues, and even plenty of overseas domestic leagues, too.
Picklebet offers a good selection of markets for both rugby league, and rugby union. For the former this inevitably focuses predominantly on the NRL and State of Origin, with plenty of markets for each and every game, while you can also bet on the UK Super League. For rugby union, there’s markets on all big international games, like the Six Nations, World Cup, all Australian internationals and more.
With the NBA running for virtually nine months of the year and its popularity in Australia growing by the season, it’s become a really popular sport for Australian punters to bet on. Picklebet has a selection of markets to rival even the best betting agencies. I always take a look at player props as this is what I like to bet on for basketball, and the Picklebet selection is really good – there are a few bigger betting agencies which offer more, but the majority offer less if any at all. Picklebet’s overall selection of basketball markets, both NBA and other leagues, is very good.
Tennis matches run all year long, and Picklebet has markets on all of these tournaments that take place throughout the course of the calendar year. Of course, it’s when the four Grand Slams come around that the punters really start sniffing, and Picklebet ramps up the number of markets they offer during these times in line with the increased interest. Expect major markets like head to head and handicap betting, as well as less common ones like total games.
Like tennis, golf runs all season long, and Picklebet again offers markets for each tournament as it arrives. For the bigger ones, like the four majors as well as events like the Ryder Cup, the markets are up well in advance, enabling you to try to get a bit of a leg up if you have an early inkling about who might come into form at that time of year. Again, this is a pretty comprehensive selection of markets for golf.
