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.


The second week of the AFL finals is over and it’s now time to check out the AFL Finals Week 2 Results

AFL Finals Week 2 Results Not Finals Footy

AFL Finals Week 2 Results 2017As you can see from the image on the left Fortuna got the Geelong vs Sydney results wrong. Tell you the truth, I really expected Sydney to win that game and I’m sure a lot of punters did as well. Still, there are a whole lot of happy punters out there who are rubbing their hands with glee. Especially those you used Bet365 to place their bet as they were offering the best odds for that particular game.

Cats Upset Swans In Semi Finals

Geelong 15.8 98 ~ Sydney Swans 5.9 39

As for the game itself its not really what I call finals footy. I don’t know about you but I expect final footy to be a hard fought game with the lead seesawing between the two teams. Sort of like the West Coast vs Port Power game back in week one of the finals. That is what finals footy is all about. Not the lack luster performance the Swans put up. Sam Newman was right when he said on the Footy Show that Buddy goes missing when the pressure is on.

According to Fox Footy the best tactic of the whole game was putting Dangerfield in the goal square. I have to admit, I was saying the same thing when the game started, although I didn’t think it would work out as well as it did.

I was actually hoping that Geelong would win that game because I felt that Geelong would be easier to beat this week than the Swans. After seeing the Swans dismal effort I’m not so sure any more. Still, the Crows have had a week off and maybe the Cats mighty effort has tuckered them out somewhat.

GWS Giants Thumping Win Against West Coast Eagles

GWS Giants 19.11 125 ~ West Coast Eagles 9.4 58

Again not what I call finals footy. I don’t know about you but I got pretty bored with both games and actually watched something else once the third quarter was almost over. The ABC probably had the best write up on that game.

Grand Final Prediction

I personally think it’s going to be a Crows vs Richmond grand final with the Crows finishing on top. The Herald Sun has listed a whole lot of experts with their predictions for the Grand Finals results. What do you guys think?

I may put an extra bet when doing the Semi-Finals tips in the next post.

AFL finals Week 2 Tips 2017, are we ready? Wasn’t that an exciting week one of the AFL finals? If you missed out I have linked to the best articles in the AFL Week One Finals Results post. Lets hope that this weeks AFL Finals Week 2  is as exciting. Being week two of the Finals only four teams are playing. The winners of those two games then play the Crows and the Tigers in the third week of the finals, the winners of which will face off in the Grand Finals. I’m hoping the Crows manage to win the 2017 AFL grand finals. Only time will tell.

Fortuna’s AFL Finals Week 2 Tips 2017

AFL finals Week 2 Tips 2017So, let’s have a look at Fortuna’s AFL Finals Week 2 Tips 2017.

  • Geelong vs Sydney (MCG)
  • GWS Giants vs West Coast Eagles (Spotless)

Now, lets keep in mind that as we head into the AFL finals just ab out anything can happen. You just never know how the results are going to pan out. Just thought I would put that out to make sure that you know what you’re up against if you’re game enough to place bet.

Me, I have no qualms at all about placing a bet, firstly because I always make sure that I don’t outlay more money than I can afford to lose. The most important rule when it comes to responsible gambling.

The second, and more important reason for me wanting to place a little wager, is that it makes watching the finals way more exciting.

Naturally, before I do anything, I check with my favourite online sports betting sites, SportsbetWilliam Hill and Bet365 to see who’s offering the best odds for week 2 of the AFL Finals.
