Most Popular Online Sports Betting Sites

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

  • William Hill: Aussie punters love William Hill which was the first online sports betting site I joined.  If you haven’t joined yet why not take advantage of their deposit $50 and get $150 in Bonus Bets! Note that exclusions apply? You can read my William Hill review here.
  • Sportsbet: These guys are fast becoming one of my favourite online sports betting sites. One of the reasons for that is because of their MultiBet Cash Out feature. You can read my Sportsbet review here.
  • Bet365: Is another very popular online sports betting site. They’ve been around for years and are the third online sports betting site in my sports betting arsenal. They’re so good they even have their very own page on this site which has a link to my Bet365 review.

Unlike other sites that just link to sports betting sites with no personal experience, I’ve actually 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 very important 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 a very good 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 actually has happened. More importantly though is that I can check to see who has the best odds before placing a bet.

Other popular sports betting sites that I haven’t joined yet include, SkyBetUniBet, and LuxBet!

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

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

Placing Sports Bets Online Growing In Popularity

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 that you can now do online. Things that make life so much easier. This includes shopping online, buying lottery tickets online, Paying your bills online and amongst 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. Don’t worry, I’ll list them at the end of the post.
  • 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 you own home.
  • Smartphones Apps make placing sports bets online even easier. Using sports betting apps means you can place a bet 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 site you can bet on almost anything from darts to the Tour De France.


As the AFL gets closer to the finals our roller coaster tipping ride continues as Fortuna sees her AFL round 22 2017 results nearing the apex of the ride. Still not good enough to get all her tips right Fortuna’s AFL round 22 2017 results show she only got two wrong.

Fortuna’s AFL Round 22 2017 Results

Fortuna’s AFL Round 22 2017Unfortunately for me I put money on the Crows and they let a perfectly winnable game slip through their fingers. That was the first of the two wrong tips for the Fortuna’s AFL Round 22 2017 results, the second being the Carlton vs Brisbane game.

For me though, as far as the AFL Round 22 2017 results go, the Crows losing to Sydney was by far the bigger loss. That has nothing to do with me losing my bet either. It’s all to do with the fact that the Crows should have won that game. Let’s have a look at what some of the experts had to say about that game.

The Guardian called that particular game a thriller and it would have been more than that for Sydney fans. They did point out,

“The scoreline tells it all, the Crows having every chance to win this but throwing it away with their kicking. Through the second half the home side controlled the ball out of the guts, but Sydney are the best defence in the comp for a reason. In the end, the losing side won the inside 50s by a margin of 62 to 42. Remarkable.”

The Advertiser had this to say about the Crows performance, “The Crows finished with 51 more disposals, 21 more contested possessions and 21 more inside 50s than the Swans but still lost.

This was partly due to poor conversion, with Sydney kicking 13.5 to 11.14 as Adelaide butchered opportunities in front of the sticks.”

Yes, the Crows kicked an awful lot of points in that game, and if only one of them was a goal the result of that game would have been entirely different.

The result would also have been different if the umpires didn’t stuff up awarding a 50m penalty against Eddie Betts.

Umps Got It Wrong On 50m Penalty

That’s what the AFL had to say about the crappy umpire call in the dying minutes of the game. A call that definitely cost them the game. But that aside, we all know that what really cost them the game was their poor kicking.

On the bright side, that game showed that the Crows have it in them to win against the Swans. Hopefully the next time they come up against the Swans they come out of it victorious.

Before we get into the AFL round 22 2017 tips I gotta tell you, after the last two weeks of footy tipping, all I can say is that getting your footy tips right can be so frustrating. In round 20 Fortuna gets 8 out of 9 of her tips right. Then in last weeks round, round 21, she only gets 6 of her tips right. Footy tipping is just like riding a roller coaster, full of ups and downs.

On the plus side I did manage to place a winning bet on both round 20 and 21.

Enough of that, lets have a look at Fortuna’s AFL round 22 2017 tips.

  • Carlton vs Hawthorn (Etihad)
  • Melbourne vs Brisbane (MCG)

  • Fremantle vs Richmond (Domain)

Now there’s no point having worked out your footy tips unless your ready to put them to good use, like helping you to place a winning bet for example. Before placing a bet you want to make sure you get the best odds. In order to do that I always place the odds from my favourite online betting sites, namely, SportsbetWilliam Hill and Bet365. Naturally I can only do that if I’m a member of those sites, which I am. Other respectable online betting sites, as far as my research goes, are Unibet and Luxbet.
