A betting exchange like Matchbook is more of a stock market, where users have the option to trade on the outcome of an event and bet against one another. You can either back a selection, meaning you’re betting on an outcome to happen, or you can lay a selection, betting on an outcome not to happen. Unlike bookmakers, a betting exchange platform doesn’t really care if your bet wins or not because they never use their own money to lay a bet. Instead, they charge a commission on winning bets or potential win amount in the case of losing bets. Because the exchange market is driven by supply and demand of its customers, the odds tend to be higher than what you would find at your bookmaker.
