It used to be that bookmakers were the only option if you wanted a bet, they had a monopoly and were very aware of that and acted accordingly.
IE big over rounds, restricting accounts etc.
Then along came betting exchanges and we had choices. There was a period when there seemed to be no point having any bookmaker accounts because Betfair always seemed the better option.
But that is not necessarily the case now. In fact I would go as far as to say that if you want to win on the horses then bookmakers Best Odds Guaranteed is a key weapon in your armoury.

There are many people that will tell you that the Betfair price at the off is a true representation of the horses chance of winning. If that is the case then it follows that you cannot get value at the off.
This is because the Betfair price is true odds plus their small over-round (circa 1%) and the on course bookmaker price is invariably shorter so how can you get value.
The value is in the early prices and the shrewd punter identifies where that value is and gets on with a Best Odds Guaranteed bookmaker.
Best Odds Guarantee: If you take a price and starting price is greater than the price you take then your bet is settled at SP
