Missing The Footy?

What To Bet On After The Footy Season

I don’t know about you but I really miss the Footy. What makes it worse is there just isn’t much on the TV to replace the AFL. I’m not into the races and watching golf is like watching paint drying on the wall. I suppose the cricket isn’t too bad but I’m not that much of a cricket fan either.

The problem with not being a mad sports fan, other than the footy, is that there’s not that much to bet on.

Having said that though I know there are probably heaps of sports fans out there who would still love to place a sports bet. Especially when placing a sports bet online is so easy! Not to mention the fact that online sports betting exposes the lucky punter to almost any sport anywhere in the world.

Popular Sports Betting Opportunities

As we’re a week into December punters can look forward to the season of summer sports. This weekend Australia and New Zealand face off in a test cricket game.

There are still some great racing opportunities for punters with the Hong Kong international cup on Sunday.

The Australian Open being just around the corner will expose tennis fans to a large scope of online betting opportunities.Soccer is still going strong and there are heaps of special deals available to punters. A lot of them being offered by Sportsbet!Bet365 is on the ball as well offering Mobile and Tablet users the ability to watch their favourite sport live on these devices. Lucky Bet365 punters also get the latest promotions and sports action sent straight to their mobiles. Unibet and William Hill also offer their members special deals and offers. This is just one of the reasons I join more than one online sports betting site.

The only drawback for online betting is that some people lose control and could fall into the problem gambling pitfalls.This is why responsible gambling is so important.

Sportsbet Best Sports Betting Site?

sportsbetI’m sure there are a lot of punters out there who would love to know which is the best sports betting site. I’m also sure that a lot of punters out there who have seen the Sportsbet ads who are wondering if Sportsbet is the best sports betting site. Seeing as that is what I do I decided to check Sportsbet out.

I have to admit that I did like the site. I checked it out using my MacBook air and my iPhone. It loaded quickly on both devices. It’s also very easy to navigate and I believe that to be a very important factor.

I decided to join and that was also a painless process. Because I live in South Australia I wasn’t able to take part in any joining bonuses that they had on offer. I spoke about that in my post about Australia being a Sports Betting Nanny State. That was a bit disappointing but that wasn’t their fault.

Luckily for me though I received the following email the next day.

Premiership favourites Sydney host Fremantle Saturday afternoon at ANZ Stadium with the Dockers expected to give Buddy and the boys a run for their money.

Contending for appearances in the Semi Finals next weekend are the winners of North Melbourne V Essendon (Saturday 7:15PM AEST) and Port Adelaide V Richmond (Sunday 3:20PM AEST).

Whether you’re a fan of the game or a fan of the finals teams, we’re gearing up for four fantastic weeks of footy, so we’re kicking you a bonus bet offer worth up to $50!

How do I use my bonus bet offer?

How cool is that? It looks like the Government can control what you get before you join a sports betting site but not what you can get after joining one. Good onya Sportsbet

Sportsbet Good Points

Seeing as how I’ve just joined Sportsbet I reckon I should probably do a followup post later. A Sportsbet review, so to speak. Having said that who best to ask about Sportsbet best points than Sportsbet themselves! Here is what they say are their best reasons for punters to join them.

  • They offer Money Back Specials on all sports.
  • Best Prices on horse racing with Top Tote
  • Provide the best Odds, Value and markets
  • Offer Live Streaming on 1000’s of events
  • And, they make betting fun!

If you’re a regular reader of this blog you know how important that last one is for me. I’m all for enjoying my sports and I place a small wager on certain games so as to increase the enjoyment factor. I also know I’m not the only one that gets a kick out of placing a bet on my favourite games.

Here is a couple of promotions you may be interested in.

I reckon only time will tell exactly how good these guys are. You may want to subscribe so you don’t miss out on any future updates. 😉
