  1. The odds are higher because you are not betting against the house (Betfair). When choosing to bet against other people you will have better odds and better chances of making profit. However you will have to pay a comission to Betfair if you choose to bet against other people.
  2. Trade out bet : If you bet as usual before starting the game and when the game starts the other team scores , you have the option to trade out your bet and you will be allowed to cut the loss.
  3. Lay a bet : means that if you have strong information that a team has no chance of winning then you can lay them because if the match ends in a draw or they lose , you will win.
