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 happened to be 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.

Actually Placing Bets Online

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 UniBet 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 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. This 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 about 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 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 betting site you can bet on almost anything from darts to the Tour De France.
  • Heaps Of Online Perks. Believe it or not you’re important to the online sports betting sites. They want your business and they’re willing to give you the best deals to get it. This goes way beyond the offers given to entice you to join. These offers 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 really only one major flaw to online betting. Because betting online is so easy it can become a problem to those people with a gambling problem. That is why I stress responsible gambling time and time again.


Preliminary Finals Crows
Crows Victorious Over Cats In Preliminary Finals

What a fantastic preliminary finals results for the Crows! All day today I’ve been listening to naysayers saying that Adelaide didn’t have a hope in hell in beating Geelong. I told them that as long as Adelaide started well in the first quarter they would win. They didn’t just win they shit all over Geelong. It was a brilliant game of footy, and how good was Charlie Cameron?

So, what was the final scores? I’m so glad you asked. :drunk:

As for the players, I have to say that Cameron really came through tonight scoring a ripper 5 goals. Jenkins came in second with four. Then there was Seeds, Walker, Lynch and Betts with two apiece. Lets not forget Crouch, Jacobs, Knight and Otten with one apiece.

But it wasn’t just the goal keepers, everybody had something to do with winning the game, including Sloane and the Crouch brothers who were phenomenal. Yep, they all had something to do with it. And wasn’t the fans unbelievably loud. I’m sure I could almost hear them over the TV, all the way over in Redwood Park. :thumb_up: I’m sure they had a hand in getting such a great result tonight. That’s why we say, We Fly As One!

Here is what Foxsports had to say about tonight’s amazing game. According to them ,”The “sealer’’ actually happened just before half-time. Geelong had controlled much of the second quarter, as Joel Selwood, Dangerfield and a revived Steven Motlop lifted, but the Cats’ efforts had seen them only reduce the margin to just under five goals.” Personally, I reckon it was a little earlier than that but it doesn’t really matter. I’m just happy they won.

Now, it all depends on who wins out of Richmond and GWS in their preliminary finals. Once we know that we know who’s in the 2017 AFL grand final.

Go The Crows

There is only two weeks of footy left! Can you believe that? Shit, I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself once the footy is over. Probably write some more Hot Sports babes posts I reckon. Before I get to the AFL 2017 Preliminary Finals Tips you may want to check the AFL finals week 2 results.

Before we get to tipping, and in defense of Fortuna’s tipping results for the 2017 season I would like you all to read the ABC News article which basically states that tipping is a waste of time. If you’re a regular you would have noticed how I’ve mentioned more than once this season that there have been heaps more upsets this year. Lets hope that as far as finals footy tipping is concerned that the remaining games are real nail biters.

Fortuna’s AFL 2017 Preliminary Finals Tips

AFL 2017 Preliminary Finals TipsOK, now that I’ve got that out of the way lets have a loot at Fortuna’s AFL 2017 Preliminary Finals Tips.

  • Adelaide Crows vs Geelong (Adelaide)
  • Richmond vs GWS Sydney (MCG

I said in my last post that it was going to be a Crows vs Tigers Grand Final and it looks like Fortuna agrees with me. Of course that doesn’t mean jack shit because when it comes to tipping, or betting, you never really know what the results are going to be.

While you don’t mind too much getting your tips wrong you sure as heck don’t want to be continually losing your sports bets. This is why gambling responsibly is so important.

Speaking of bets I think now is a great time to see which of out favourite online sports betting sites are offering the best odds. Of course you all know that unlike other sites I actually place bets on those games I write about. You also know that my favourite  betting sites are sites, SportsbetWilliam Hill and Bet365.

So, lets see who got the best Preliminary finals odds shall we?

Over to you guys, who do you think will be triumphant in the AFL 2017 Preliminary Finals?
