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.

All I can say was those AFL round 14 results 2017, while not perfect, were better that what we were getting during those bye weeks. It’s almost as if the bye weeks put a curse on the AFL results. So, how did Fortuna go with her AFL Round 14 Results 2017? Let’s have a look shall we.

Fortuna’s AFL Round 14 Results 2017

AFL Round 14 Results 2017
As you can see Fortuna got 6 of her 9 tips right. If you check my bets in last weeks post you’ll notice that I was actually able to use those tips to get all my bets with Bet365 right. It’s moments like this when I think I should have placed a mult-bet, but then I’m sure if I did that Murphy’s law would have cut in and I would have a losing bet instead of a winning bet.

What was particularly upsetting about the AFL round 14 2017 results was the Adelaide Crows vs Hawthorn game. Luckily the odds were so much in the Crows favour that it wasn’t worth betting on.

Shit, how in hell did the Crows who were on top of the ladder lose to the Hawks who were second to last? Was it because the Crows went in without all guns firing because they thought the Hawks would be an easy win? We all know what a fatal mistake that can be.

Add to that the fact that the Crows played and home and so had the home advantage makes the loss even more bewildering.

Coach Don Pyke says “We never really got into gear.” Hello, we can see that! What fans can’t understand is why the Crows couldn’t get it into gear. As the game progressed everyone could see that unless the Crows pulled their fingers out their hold on the game was tenuous at best.

Also, they have to do something about Sloane. Having one man tagged during a game should never result in a loss. Something has to be done to counteract the Rory Sloane effect.

Come  on Crows! Your fans want and deserve better.

If you read the AFL round 13 results you’ll have noticed that I referred to it as the unluckiest round of the year! I also linked to some interesting lessons learned as well as stating the most important lesson learned from that round. Fortunately the unlucky bye weeks are over and we’re back to full on footy. Lets hope that this means the results will be more predictable leading to a great result for AFL round 14 2017 tips. Speaking of which, lets have a gander at the AFL round 14 2017 tips.

William Hill


If you’re going to bet on the underdogs this week then William Hill will be your best bet because on a whole they’re offering the best odds.

This week I’m going with Bet365 because they’ve got the best odds for my selection. Something interesting I noticed as I was adding my bets was the ‘bet slip’ was updating the mult-bet odds, just in case I was interested. Not this time. Like last week I placed individual bets on those games highlighted in red. You can see my bet here.

OK, now all I have to do is to place my Sportsbet’s Million Dollar Tipping competition. Last week I tipped all the NRL games but missed the margin by only 4 points! So bloody close!! :head bash:

I’m all set, how about you guys.
