Most Popular Online Sports Betting Sites

My favourite and very popular, sports betting sites aresafe secure popular online sports betting

Placing Bets Online

Unlike other sites that just link to sports betting sites with no personal experience, I’ve joined these sites and use them on a weekly basis to place my online sports bets. You’ll find the proof of these online bets in my posts as I show my readers the ins and outs of online sports betting.

 Picking A Safe Secure Sports Betting Site

Before joining any online sports betting sites, I always make sure it fulfils four essential criteria.

  1. It’s been around for several years. If they’ve been able to last for several years then they must be doing something right; otherwise, they would have folded up.
  2. There wasn’t any negative feedback. The internet being what it is you can always tell when a site is shonky by the amount of negative feedback it’s accumulated.
  3. They were easy to use. The last thing you want to do is to spend ages trying to work out how to use your new online sports betting site.
  4. It has to have a sports betting app that is easy to use. You will come to love placing bets online once you have access to a half decent sports betting app.

The More Sports Betting Sites The Better

I have an excellent reason for joining more than one online sports betting site. Naturally, I wanted to be able to write honest reviews for you guys. Another good reason was so I had something to fall back on if one of them ever went offline, which has happened. More importantly though is that I can check to see who has the best odds, before placing a bet.

Another favourite sports betting sites that I haven’t joined yet is UniBet!

If you’re interested in earning money by promoting online sports betting sites as an affiliate, you will find this post fascinating.

Even more important than that is my post on responsible gambling. As long as you follow those guidelines, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t have an enjoyable online betting experience.

Why Popular Online Sports Betting Is Growing

It’s no wonder that the popularity of online sports betting is on the rise. Have you ever wondered why online sports betting is so popular? It’s not all that surprising when you consider all the things you can now do online. Things that make life so much easier, which includes shopping online, buying lottery tickets online, paying your bills online and among many other things, placing bets on your favourite sports online. Let’s look at some of the things that make placing a bet online so popular.

  • No more waiting in queue to place a bet. This would have to be at the top of the list as far as whats driving the popularity of online sports betting.
  • The ability to shop around so you can get the best odds. The better the odds, the more you can win. Just one of the reasons why I have joined three of the best online sports betting sites.
  • Speaking of odds, more often than not you will get better odds online so why would you want to place a bet any other way?
  • Placing a bet online is easy. No more phone calls which end up with you being put on hold. No more having to drive to the local TAB. Now you can place your bets online from the comfort of your own home.
  • Smartphones Apps make placing sports bets online even easier. Using sports betting apps means you can put a stake online no matter where you are, as long as you can get an internet connection.
  • Exposure to world sports is another reason for the growing popularity of online sports betting. Once you join one of the reputable online sports betting sites, you can bet on almost anything from darts to the Tour De France.
  • There are heaps of online perks. Believe it or not, you’re essential to the online sports betting sites. They want your business and are willing to give you the best deals to get it. This goes way beyond the offers provided to entice you to join. These specials continue to flow because they want to keep your business. Anything from cashback offers on losing bets to significantly better odds on selected events.

There is no way you will get all these benefits from your regular bookie or bricks and mortar betting sites.

As far as I can see, there is only one major flaw to online betting. Betting online is so easy it can be an issue for people with a gambling problem. That is why I stress responsible gambling time and time again.

After last weeks multi-bet win I thought I would go the multi-bet route again, using my AFL Round 5 2018 Tips as a guide. Whereas Ladbrokes has the best odds for the longshots, Sportsbet odds look best for my multi-bet picks. You can see my bet here.

All that’s left for me to do is to enter the Million Dollar Tipping competition. Who knows, perhaps this will be my lucky week?  :drunk:

I’m a lot happier with last weeks AFL Round 4 2018 Results.

AFL Round 4 2018 Results On The Way Up

AFL Round 4 2018 Results

The best thing of all was that my Sportsbet multi-bet was a winner. Feels great to see them deposit some cash into my sports betting bankroll.  :tongue_out: So, let’s have a look at the  AFL scores for week 4.

AFL Round 4 2018 Results – Scores

ADELAIDE CROWS     1.1   3.2   6.3   9.4      (58)
COLLINGWOOD           5.2   8.5  11.9  16.10 (106)

As a Crows fan, all I can say was the Crows performance was woeful whereas Collingwood showed them how to handle a footy in the wet. It was so painful to watch the Crows constantly fumbling with the ball. What was a winnable game turned out to be a disaster for all Crow supporters

GREATER WESTERN SYDNEY     1.5    5.9    8.14  11.16 (82)
FREMANTLE                                   3.1    5.2    5.6      7.9   (51)

There were no surprises as far as this game goes.

RICHMOND     5.5     8.10     11.12     16.14     (110)
BRISBANE      0.2       0.4         1.4         2.5     (17)

I’m sure after the three previous narrow losses this week’s results mortified both Brisbane players and fans alike. They’re going to have to do a lot better to regain some credibility.

WESTERN BULLDOGS       4.0       6.3       10.4     11.13 (79)
SYDNEY                               5.3       7 7.      9.10.   13.8   (86)

Don’t know about you guys, but I don’t think Sydney could have pulled this off with Franklin. Luckily for us tipsters, Lance was there to save the day.

NORTH MELBOURNE   4.5     9.6    14.7    18.8 (116)
CARLTON                      1.0     3.3     3.4      4.6   (30)

While Carlton’s loss to North Melbourne wasn/t as bad as Brisbane, it was still pretty pathetic. Don’t you hate those games where it looks like one of the sides didn’t bother to show up?

WEST COAST   4.4  12.8  15.12  21.13 (139)
GOLD COAST   3.1    4.2    8.4     9.5    (59)

Another tip right with West Coast winning convincingly against West Coast.

ESSENDON               5.2   9.4    12.7   16.10   (106)
PORT ADELAIDE      2.2   4.6      8.8   12.12   (84)

Trust Port Adelaide to get this one wrong. Like the Crows, this was a winnable game for the Power, but unfortunately, they could find the switch and had to play with a power outage. Like a lot of other tipsters, I was amazed to get this one wrong.

HAWTHORN   3.5       7.5       11.7     18.7 (115)
MELBOURNE  5.5       5.9       5.11     6.12 (48)

Another one wrong. Such a big margin too. It looks AFL Round 4 2018 Results were full of huge margins.

GEELONG    4.3   8.6   13.8   15.13 (103)
ST KILDA    1.4   3.7     5.8     7.14  (56)

Although I got this one right, the vast margin stuffed up my Million Dollar Tipping results. Yeah, I know I lost, but the significant margin difference has sent me further back in the Million Dollar Tipping ladder.

Here’s to doing even better with this weeks AFL Round 5 2018 tips.
