Betham has played at wing and centre in 46 appearances in a season-and-a-half since joining the club, starting all 13 Premiership fixtures so far in 2016/17.
Colleagues Graham Kitchener, Will Evans and Dom Barrow, have also extended their contracts at Welford Road.
“Continuity of your core group is very important,” Mauger told BBC Radio Leicester.
“Pete has had a good couple of years and there is a lot more to get out of him. We are excited to work with him for another couple of years.
“Kitch is athletic and dynamic and he now has a lot of experience under his belt in big games.
“Dom is another relatively young guy who has a massive amount of potential and has the right attitude as well. He is an ultimate professional.”
Thanks a lot for the kind messages today. One of the easy decisions out there 👍🏼 pic.twitter.com/s9aqvWqEHd

Betham added: “I’m ecstatic. I am very humbled and blessed to be able to spend a couple more years here. I have found a home here and wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.”
