Most Popular Online Sports Betting Sites

I used to promote William Hill and Sportsbet but no more. Those links will explain why. Until I find another two sports betting sites to join I’ll continue to promote Ladbrokes: As you know I love online sports betting sites with history and Ladbrokes certainly fit the bill. They’ve been around since 1886. Why not check out their Sports Betting section! Read my Ladbrokes Australia Review.

Placing Bets Online

Unlike other sites that just link to sports betting sites with no personal experience, I’ve 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 essential 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 an excellent 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 has happened. More importantly though is that I can check to see who has the best odds, before placing a bet.

Another favourite sports betting sites that I haven’t joined yet is UniBet!

If you’re interested in earning money by promoting online sports betting sites as an affiliate, you will find this post fascinating.

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, which 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 of 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 your own home.
  • Smartphones Apps make placing sports bets online even easier. Using sports betting apps means you can put a stake 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 sites, you can bet on almost anything from darts to the Tour De France.
  • There are heaps of online perks. Believe it or not, you’re essential to the online sports betting sites. They want your business and are willing to give you the best deals to get it. This goes way beyond the offers provided to entice you to join. These specials 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 only one major flaw to online betting. Betting online is so easy it can be an issue for people with a gambling problem. That is why I stress responsible gambling time and time again.

AFL Round 14 2018 Tips Two In A Row?

AFL Round 14 2018 Tips

Yep, my AFL Round 13 2018 Tips was my first perfect tipping round and another good payout from Ladbrokes. With another bye week, I’m hoping for another perfect round with my AFL Round 14 2018 Tips. This week’s AFL Round 14 2018 Tips will be missing Adelaide, Fremantle, Geelong, Richmond, St. Kilda and Sydney who are all taking a break. Hopefully, the Crows use this time to work out a plan to get back into finals contention because they’re nowhere near it at the moment. Injuries aside my impression of their past performance is they’re lacking that will to win and are not 100% committed to the game.

Ok, all that aside, let’s take a look at my AFL Round 14 2018 Tips!

  • West Coast vs Essendon (Optus)
  • Port Adelaide vs Melbourne (Adelaide)
  • Hawthorne vs Gold Coast (UT)
  • Brisbane vs GWS Giants (Gabba)
  • Wstn. Bulldogs vs Nth. Melbourne (Etihad)
  • Collingwood vs Carlton (MCG)

As you know, Sportsbet and William Hill did the dirty on me which is why I no longer promote them. As of yet, I haven’t decided on which other two sports betting sites to join. Thankfully, Ladbrokes is pretty bloody good. Here are the odds they’re offering on AFL 2018 round 14.

2018 AFL Round 14 Ladbrokes
west Coast 1.20
Essendon 4.75
Port Adelaide 1.55
Melbourne 2.50
Hawthorn 1.06
Gold Coast 10.00
Brisbane 3.60
GWS Giants 1.30
Wstn. Bulldogs 4.75
Nth. Melbourne 1.20
Collingwood 1.08
Carlton 8.50

I don’t know about you, but I’m not at all happy about the odds offered. As far as my AFL Round 14 2018 Tips go Port Adelaide has the best odds, but the Power has let me down so many times I’m not comfortable putting money on them. This is why I’m not going for Ladbrokes’ AFL Mega Multi promotion this week. This involves backing the Power, Hawks and Giants in a multi at $2.50.

This week I think I will do something different. I’m going to put five dollars on the Hawks to win by a margin of 1-39. You can see my bet here.
