The operator has become the second bookmaker after BetVictor to utilise the popular man of the match market from, a London-based football statistics website.

The market, which will cover the remainder of the Premier League season, offers supporters the chance to make money on the highest rated player in different matches.

A spokesperson for Betfair told “In terms of popularity, the Man of the Match market has consistently been right at the top of our ‘extra’ or ‘peripheral’ markets and it’s clearly something punters find an interesting market to bet on. At the moment, it is available on Premier League games, however we have plans in place to roll it out to more competitions in the future.” Co-Founder and CEO Cristiano Acconci added: “Having our Man of the Match market on two bookmakers really shows the quality and credibility of our ratings system. This market also allows all football fans to join without being betting experts; it’s a fun market to bet on with very favourable odds margins.”’s Man of the Match market is based on a ratings system designed to analyse over 200 raw statistics collected by Opta. While Betfair will start by offering the market on just Premier League games, there are plans to extend this across the top five football leagues in Europe.

There is scope for a quick extension of this partnership, given that the affiliate has access to a wide range of statistics from Opta, including a statistical best XI from each week, month and year.
