What is a Request A Bet?

A Request a Bet with Sky Bet is when a punter requests a bespoke bet. This is basically when a customer cannot find a particular bet they want to place.

In these instances the punter can email Sky Bet and tell them what they want to bet on, this request is forwarded to a Trading Team who will calculate bespoke betting odds and send it to the customer.

The Skybet Request A Bet also allows you to add multiple selections to your betting slip to increase your odds.

You can Request a Bet with Sky Bet via their website or betting app. Request a Bet is increasingly growing in popularity.

Sometimes a Request a Bet is shortened to RAB.

What is an Example of a RequestABet Bet?

Examples of a Request A Bet could be a unique price on the following:

  • A horse to win the Gold Cup and Grand National.
  • A price for a horse to win the UK Flat triple crowd.
  • A price for a horse to win the Ebor and Melbourne Cup

A Request A Bet can also be on other sports markets, such as football, rugby, tennis, athletics and more.

Football is very popular, with examples being how many goals there are in a football match, who scores, the time of the goal, the number of corners etc.

Sometimes these unique bets may be covered by a normal bet builder, other times you need to make the request.

Bet Types For RequestABet

Here are the most popular bet types for RequestABet:

Lengthen The Odds

The lengthen-the-odds betting market is used when punters strongly fancy the selection to win by a significant winning distance. This type of bet in horse racing is popular when there is a particularly strong favourite in a race and it is considered not if the horse wins but by how far!

Lengthening the odds means the bookmaker gives more favourable odds to the punter for the racehorse to win by more than a selected number of lengths.

Horse tipsters select the daily double tips or daily NAP selections as some of the “lengthen the odds tips”.

Bet Without Favourite

Many punters do not like to wager money on odds on favourites and enjoy placing bets on the betting without the favourite market.

On the RequestABet betting slip you can add in selections you think will win or come second to the short-priced fav.

Place Bets

In big handicapping fields, place bets with online bookies are the most popular bet type.

Horse racing tipsters love to choose bookmakers that pay each way extra or payout on extra places of each way tips.
