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.


In round 17 we saw Fortuna creep up to 7 correct tips but then last week she slid back to four. Can’t complain really because I thought she had them pretty well right.

Once again I’m going to split my bets. I’m putting 5 bucks on Sydney and 5 bucks on Melbourne. I’m using Sportsbet this week because their running their promotion where you automatically win if your team leads by 24 points anytime in the game. Even if they lose! How cool is that?

You can see my bet here.

There’s only one more thing to do, probably the most important thing, and that is to enter Sportsbet Million Dollar Tipping competition. This is a totally free competition and there’s $10,000 up for grabs every week of the AFL and NRL 2017 season.



Man, I was so looking forward to a great week of AFL tipping. As you can see below, the AFL round 18 2017 results started off OK until the Melbourne vs Port Power game.

Trust Port Power to be the first one to screw things up for us. That was definitely a game they should have won but unfortunately they were asleep the first half. It wasn’t until the second half that someone decided to flip the switch to turn the power on, but by then it was way too bloody late.

As you can see from this article it was all about the Demons! The Power hardly got a mention until nearly the end of the article, but then when you play like shit, that’s all you deserve.

At least the Crows played like this was the win they had to have. They’ve finally broken the 14 year old hoodoo I spoke about in a previous post. Pyke spoke about the fierce contest but I’m sure everyone who watched that match saw how brilliantly the Crows stood up against the Cats! The Cats threw everything at them and were always in their faces but the Crows finally stood up the them and gave better than what they got.

And what about Sloane? Was he a bloody marvel or what? Lets hope he can keep it up.

Too bad we will lose Betts in the Collingwood clash due to having his appendix removed but fingers crossed that he will be back in the next Showdown.

See what the Roar had to say about the Richmond vs GWS Giants game. They figured it was going to be a close game and that Richmond should win. Looks like they were right.

The Collingwood vs West Coast was always going to be a close game, but it was still one that I thought West Coast could win. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be. Check out what Nine WWOS thought of that game.

As for the Carlton and Brisbane game? Read how Brisbane managed to hold off the late Carlton comeback?

The AFL round 18 2017 results just goes to show why teams have to play four quarters of footy if they expect to play finals.

How did you go with your AFL round 18 2017 results?

As far as the betting goes, you’ll notice from my last post that the Sportsbet wager turned out to be a winner whereas the William Hill one didn’t.
