Sports betting is becoming a popular activity among many enthusiasts in England and beyond. Bookmakers have in turn included different disciplines in the markets they offer, making it possible for bettors to bet on the sport they love or one that they feel they are more lucky on. Online betting has helped bookmakers reach a broader market through different platforms, such as websites and mobile applications, making it easier for gamblers to place their bets, even in the comfort of their homes without having to visit betting shops. This article will focus on the top sports which you can bet on.
Football is arguably the most followed sport in England and the United Kingdom, and it’s one of the easiest sport to bet on. This is because, in most cases, there are higher chances of the strongest or most favourite team to win a football match. Another reason is that bookmakers avail a wide range of markets to bet on. Accumulators, where you place a bet on more than one game on one ticket, are more enjoyable to bet on and have a larger payout as compared to single bets.
Tennis is the second most popular sport in terms of betting in England. This popularity can be attributed to the growth of in-play and online betting. What is good about betting on tennis, is that there are no draws, and for a beginner, this can be a good starting point, because you only need to predict on who will win the game, how many sets will be played or the scores per set for in-play betting.
There are also a load of other individual or team sports, such as athletics, boxing, basketball, and rugby, among others which you can bet on. However, it’s important to note that betting is a game of chance, and you should ensure that you place your bets on sports that you are familiar with.
