The Two Best Betting Sites for the National League

The Two Best Betting Sites for the National League

The National League (Vanarama National League) is the fifth-highest division in the English football league and is the highest level of Non-League football. The National League consists of 24 teams, who play each other twice per season, both home and away to a total of 46 games.

You will find both professional and semi-professional teams in the National League battling it out for promotion to League Two. With the National League being the top division in the Non-League structure, it is a popular league to bet on, but which betting sites offer the best experience?


bet365 is a fantastic bookmaker for betting on all Non-League football, not just the National League. bet365 often offers 80+ markets to choose from for National League matches while also allowing you to build your own bet with their “Bet Builder” feature.

Also, bet365 provides a massive range of stats, including form, key stats, results, upcoming fixtures, over/under stats and more, on their external stats page. The National League is still not on TV as much as it deserves, so these stats are an essential tool to you aid your betting decisions.

bet365 also provides a number of outright markets for you to bet on throughout the season, including teams to be promoted, relegated, the leagues top scorer and more. Four teams are relegated in the National League, and you can often find good value in the relegation and promotion markets.


Betfair is another great option for betting on the National League. The National League can offer some great value odds, and Betfair usually has some of the best odds for English football.

Also, you can use their Acca Edge as insurance if your bet loses by one selection.

Acca Edge offers you lower odds for your money back if your slip loses by just one leg. The National League can be a volatile and hard to predict league making Acca Edge a useful feature.

Furthermore, you can use their “Same Game Multi” to build customised bets of your choice, or request a bet with their #Oddsonthat feature.

Betfair does not offer extensive stats for researching, but they do have head to head stats including recent results, and head to head meetings.
