My favourite, and very popular, sports betting sites are
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 700FreeBet_link! 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.
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.
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.
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.
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, SkyBet, 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 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.
With the second AFL bye week at hand it’s time to check Fortuna’s AFL Footy Tips Round 14 2016. Fortuna got 4 out of the 6 right last week bringing her total for the season to 80. Hopefully her AFL Footy Tips Round 14 2016 is a little better. I reckon I’m about due for another win.
Adelaide vs Nth Melbourne (Adelaide)
Collingwood vs Fremantle (MCG)
Richmond vs Brisbane (MCG)
GWS Giants vs Carlton (Spotless)
St. Kilda vs Geelong (Etihad)
Hawthorn vs Gold Coast (Aurora)
There are three games that I wouldn’t put a bet on this week. The first one is the Collingwood vs Fremantle game. Even though Fortuna has gone with Collingwood I reckon it could just as easily go Freo’s way.
The other two are GWS Giants vs Carlton and the Hawthorn vs Gold Coast games because, as you can see from the odds below, the odds just suck.
As far as placing a bet goes I’ve decided to go with William Hill this week as they have the best odds for my Multi-Bet. What was really cool, after logging on, was that William Hill have finally introduced the Cash Out feature to their members. As far as my bet goes you can see proof of it here.
As for the new William Hill Cash Out Feature, I reckon I just might do a followup post on how that works.
Once I placed my multi-bet I logged onto SportsBet to enter this weeks Million Dollar Tipping competition. While on there I wondered to myself why I haven’t been entering the NRL Million Dollar tipping as well. Shit, I may have missed out on winning $10,000! From this week on I will be entering tips for both the AFL and the NRL!
AFL Round 13 Results 2016 Fortuna Tipping A Little Better
Fortuna’s footy tips were a lot better this week than last weeks dismal effort. Unfortunately when placing my bet with William Hill last week I backed Port Power. Still, 4 out of 6 is a pretty good outcome for the AFL Round 13 Results 2016
There were two reasons for backing the Power, the first being that the odds were pretty good and a win would have paid pretty well. The second being that I agreed with Fortuna and I honestly felt that they would do well against Freo!
They must have known this was a do or die game for them and that a loss would make their passage to a finals berth almost impossible. Shit, if that’s not enough incentive to pull out all the stops and play your best I don’t know what is. That and the fact that Fremantle has been playing like shit should definitely made this a winnable game. Unfortunately Port Power wasn’t up to the task and couldn’t find the switch to turn the power on.
Looking at Ports Official website’s match report it was obvious that nothing they could do to soften the poor match result was really working.
What did I learn from the AFL Round 13 Results 2016? The most important thing was that I shouldn’t be betting on Port Power. They just can’t be relied on. When you expect them to win they don’t and when you expect them to lose they don’t.
Another very important thing the AFL Round 13 Results 2016 has brought to light, and I know I say this a lot but it is so bloody important for everyone to realise that you should never, ever bet more than you can afford to lose. This way you make your sports betting bankroll last a lot longer and you’re not stressing over the loss of any bet. I know doing this means I enjoy my games and betting a hell of a lot more.
