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 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.

  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.


What a great start to the 2017 AFL season. Sure there were some upsets but that’s the name of the game when it comes to any form of sports betting. You win some and you lose some. I know that, as long as I win more than I lose and I enjoy the extra thrill the bet puts on the game then it’s all good. :tup: Check out my last post to see the results of the round 1 tipping. Now it’s time to check out Fortuna’s AFL round 2 2017 tips.

AFL round 2 multibetOK, we have our AFL Round 2 2017 Tips at hand and we also have the odds offered by my favourite online sports betting sites. Next thing to consider before placing a bet is whether or not there are any specials being offered by those sites. William Hill has their “Get up to $50 back in bonus bets if your team loses by 32 points or less” deal. That was very tempting until I noticed it excluded SA, WA & NSW residents! Man, that really sucks.

Sportsbet had their Power Play option. Hitting the Power Play button gives you even better odds.

Couldn’t find any applicable promotions on Bet365.

In the end I decided to go with Sportsbet because I had the most money with them. I went with a multibet because multi-bets have a better payout than your everyday head to head bet. You can read all about multi-bets here.

You can see my actual multi-bet over there on the right. A $10 outlay will net me $41.72 if I win.

I’d love to hear of any bets that you’re placing.

EDIT: Million Dollar Tipping: Shit!! I forgot all about the Sportsbet Million Dollar Tipping competition. I forgot about it last week and I almost forgot about it this week. Luckily I remembered and I entered my NRL and AFL tips giving me two chances of winning $10,000! Man, wouldn’t it be great to actually win both? Don’t forget to enter your Million Dollar Tipping AFL tips!

Before getting to the AFL Round 1 2017 results I wanna congratulate the Crows women for winning the AFLW Grand final. They’ve done us proud and now it’s up to the guys to follow their great example. Check this article to see a great photo of Erin Philips with her kids in the grand finals cup. Great shot. Check out this post to see her inauguration into the Hot Sports Babe Hall Of Fame. :tup:

Now for Fortuna’s AFL Round 1 2017 Results!

Considering it was the first round I reckon those results were pretty good. There were definitely some upsets in the AFL Round 1 2017 Results. Take the Essendon vs Hawthorn game for example. I don’t think too many people would have picked Essendon to win. Shit, even the Gold Coast vs Brisbane game can be considered an upset. Have to admit though, those punters that backed Brisbane using William Hill as their online bookie would have been pretty wrapped with their winnings with William Hill’s $3.55 odds!!

Speaking of another great win, how good were the Adelaide Crows? Good enough to make my first bet of the AFL season a winning bet, that’s how good they were. Lucky too, otherwise those Power fans, another upset if you ask me, would have given us heaps. As it was I reckon it was great that both South Aussie teams managed a great win to start off their 2017 AFL season. :drunk:

As far as news articles go on the AFL round 1 upsets I reckon that was the best with their Incredible Night Of Comebacks article.

As for the Adelaide Crows game, Fox Sports said that the Crows produced the best performance of round one! Not bad considering they the preseason flag favourites.

All in all I say it was a pretty good start to the 2017 AFL season.

Just to finish off I give your a great shot of the 2017 AFLW Premiers.
