The Market Base Rate (MBR) for AFL will remain at 2.5% for the 2019 AFL season. 

Betfair is pleased to announce that the Market Base Rate (MBR) for the 2019 AFL season will remain at 2.5%. This change also applies to all AFL markets including futures and Brownlow Medal.

A decision around the MBR on NRL will be made shortly.

In the mean time, clients can rest assured that the AFL will remain Betfair’s cheapest product to bet on and represent arguably the lowest take out rates across the industry.

What is an MBR?

Each market that you bet on has an MBR. This rate is the maximum percentage of your winnings that you will pay in commission. To find out what the MBR is for a market, simply click on the “Rules” section of the market you wish to place a bet on.
