Tradesports, similar to Betfair, is an on-line sports betting exchange. Unlike Betfair, Tradesports (or TS) will accept customers with mailing addresses in the United States. Betfair is a United Kingdom based Internet bet exchange. ... Sports betting is the general activity of predicting sports results by making a wager on the outcome of a sporting event. ...

As an exchange, Tradesports provides a way for customers to make trades but does not participate in trading itself. TS does make contractual agreements with market makers, who promise to offer certain trades at an agreed volume in exchange for paying lower (or no) fees. Claims that TS has a closer financial relationship with some market makers are difficult to falsify, but no evidence exists to support this conclusion.

Tradesports is considered the premier betting exchange for North American sports and daily financial bets while Betfair has more liquidity in global and European events.
