Unibet and bet365 shared top billing for May’s biggest match on bettingexpert, with both bookmakers accounting for 10.29% of the tips on last month’s Madrid derby at the Bernabeu.
The pair made up the top two for each of the top five matches on bettingexpert, which also included both matches between Monaco and Juventus, San Antonio Spurs vs Houston Rockets and Boston Celtics vs Washington Wizards. Interwetten was a surprise inclusion in the top three for the Real vs Atletico match, with 6.86% of the tips on the Champions League semi-final first leg.
Bet365 also came out as the favoured bookmaker for 1×2 Champions League punters in the UK, while Serbia, which last month came out on top for Champions League tips from a country not represented, showed an overriding preference for the 1×2 market in the competition (33.3%).
Meanwhile, Marathonbet was the top choice for the 1×2 Champions League market in Spain, a country which has claimed the last four titles since Bayern Munich’s 2013 triumph at Wembley.
Despite sharing its big match dominance with bet365, Unibet was the market leader in two of the biggest overall markets in France, with 36.8% of the over/under bets and 31.6% of the 1×2 bets for last month’s Champions League action.
