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.

 


Swimming jokes is what todays sports jokes is all about. I’ve decided on a sports joke today because its been so long since my last sports joke post. Actually, it was the Farts Football post way back on the 10th. March. That being the case I thought it was high time I posted another sports orientated joke. This following joke involves both diving and swimming sports.

Swimming Jokes To Make You Laugh

swimming jokesA man met a beautiful blonde lady and after a short courtship asked her to marry him.

She said, ‘But we don’t know anything about each other.’

He said, ‘That’s all right, we’ll learn about each other as we go along.’

So she consented, they were married, and off they went on a honeymoon at a resort. One morning, they were lying by the pool, when he got up off of his towel, climbed up to the 10 metre board and did a two and a half tuck, followed by three rotations in the pike position, at which point he straightened out and cut the water like a knife.

After a few more demonstrations, he came back and lay down on the towel.

She said, ‘That was incredible!’

He said, ‘I  used to be an Olympic diving champion. You see, I told you we’d learn more about each other as we went along.’

So she got up, jumped in the pool and started doing laps. After seventy-five laps she climbed out of the pool, lay down on her
towel and was hardly out of breath.

He said, ‘That was incredible!  Were you an Olympic endurance swimmer?’

‘No,’ she said, ‘I was a prostitute in Mildura, but I worked both sides of the Murray !!!

Finally, let’s have a look at Victoria’s swimming joke.

Before I discuss the topic, Why did the Crows lose the Grand Final I want to say right from the start, the Crows played like shit! Where were the Crows yesterday? They certainly weren’t at the MCG, that’s for damn sure. I don’t know who was masquerading as the Crows but that sure as hell wasn’t the same team that did all they could to get to the Grand Final!

Why Did The Crows Lose The Grand Final

In no particular order here are my reasons for the Crows losing the 2017 AFL Grand Final.

  1. Bad Umpiring! I know everyone one will say that’s just sour grapes but I’m just calling it as it is. Take the failed free kick when Eddie nearly got his arm pulled off by Grimes in the second quarter. He was right in front of goals, so that would have been a goal for sure. That was just one decision that sucked. Also I noticed that when the Tigers got a free kick they were either in or near their 50, whereas a Crows free was usually at the other end of the oval.
  2. Like I said at the beginning, the Crows played like crap. That being the case the Tigers were lucky the Crows weren’t at their best.
  3. Outsmarted: Did anyone notice that Jacobs was almost always the only one in the rucking contest. That freed up a Tiger player which usually resulted in them getting the ball. Why didn’t anyone notice this from the Crows team. Someone should have told Jacobs to forget about tapping the ball but to punch the crap out of it toward their goals. Either that or grab the bloody thing and kick it.

Perhaps if the umpires got it right, the Crows performed better and the coaching stuff done their bit Richmond may have still won it, but at least it would have been a better finals game.

Why Port Power Fan SucksWhy Did The Crows Lose The Grand Final

I didn’t bother much with social media after the game but I heard it was rife with Power supporters and all those band wagon Richmond backers who were bagging the Crows. I’m not at all surprised from the Power fans. After all, they probably find it pretty hard to remember what happened last week let alone their dismal effort in the 2007 Grand Final where they lost against Geelong by a whopping 119 points! Now that was probably one of the worst Grand Finals results ever.

I know I shouldn’t stoop to their level, but sometimes these things just have to be pointed out.
