There are hundreds of ways to place a bet on a sports event, and online even more.
But, are all Sports betting online websites legal and honest and not scams?
Do you do your homework and research before just registering and opening an online account on a sports betting website? Do you just give your banking or credit card details to any sports betting site that claims to be the best?
Here’s a quick look at the current rumors circling with regards to online sports betting websites. It has been blogged and reported that sports betting champ website www.sportsbettingchamp.com is a scam and should be avoided at all costs as it’s a blatant lie and full-on scam. It is very similar to current scams on the worldwide web today; it is just too good to be true.
The website is just too colourful, and they try and convince you just a bit too much. It makes you wonder, are they convincing themselves, or just trying to convince you.
Sports Betting Champ offers ‘direct betting picks’ as well as an astounding 97% success rate which states that it will help you win almost every single sports bet that you place. Another odd feature the website provides is that it emails you the picks instead of actually viewing it on their website and placing your bet live straight away via the website. Now, does this sound too good to be true?
USA Online Sports Betting
In America in 2008, on a poll done by ESPN, 118 million Americans said that they bet on sports during that year. This is a staggering amount considering the fact that the total population of America in 2008 was 305 million people.
With this great demand for access to gambling services, a supply of online sports betting websites has risen. This is especially true in the UK, where the love for football spills over into the sports betting arena.
With online sports betting, one is able to pick and choose between the many options available when it comes to making a bet. For example, some sport betting sites offer the option of betting who will be the first player to score a goal in a particular match. Other sites even offer the option of betting at what minute the first or second goal will be scored. There is a wide range of options, and sometimes they may seem limitless.
The many sites available accommodate betting for every sport available, from the NFL to the Olympics, with each sport having its own variations on what you can bet on. This offers the user a broad range of categories to choose from, so whichever sport you enjoy, you can be assured that you can bet on it.
Sports spread betting is an important concept to understand if one is going to start betting online. Imagine a game between the Lions and the Sharks. The Lions are of course the favourites, so bettors would for obvious reasons bet on the Lions. However, bookmakers and online betting sites would place a handicap on the teams in order to make the underdog a more appealing bet. For example, the Lions are favoured to win the game by 10 points. This is written as -10 for the Lions and as 10 for the sharks. So if you bet that the Lions will win, then you better hope that they win by more than 10 points. If you bet on the Sharks, however, because of the spread, they only have to lose by 10 points or less in order for you to win your bet.
