How To Bet On The Weather

Daily weather betting is one of the novelty bets that punters have rallied around with the global downturn in sport and racing worldwide.

Australians are giving temperature bands across the majority of our capital cities and it's the punter's task to identify where the they think the max will hit throughout the day or at a specific time.

Sounds easy right? Not exactly!

We've taken a look at how daily weather betting works.

How Does Daily Weather Betting Work?

Daily weather betting invariably relates to the max temperature in capital cities from around Australia. 

Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide are among the cities that feature with the bookies on daily weather betting, with punters tasked with either picking what the temperature will peak at, or whether or not the mercury will hit a certain threshold.

Daily Weather Betting Markets

There are a number of different betting markets for punters wanting to wager on the weather:

5 Way Betting: The bookie provides five temperature markets and it's your job to pick which degree range will be the peak. 

Odd/Even Market: This bet type sees punters wagering on whether the first decimal place will be an odd or an even number a specific time during the day.

Sportsbet Weather

Over/Under Market: The bookie frames what they believe the max temperature will be and its the punter's job to figure out whether it will peak above or below their line.
