The Easiest Sports to Bet on for Profits

Steve Shoup

If you’re new to sports betting, it’s best to start out with simple betting markets that will help you make money easily. You want to build your bankroll off the back of your successful wagers, and betting on the following sports will make that possible.

Esports

Esports is new to the sports betting market, and it is a good place to start. When you become a more experienced sports bettor, you’ll have to do research on different teams and leagues to build up the kind of knowledge base that will allow you to make successful wagers. Esports betting is the perfect activity to prepare you for that.

 

Across the range of esports (which includes CS:GO, League of Legends and DotA 2), there are relatively few teams. This means that you don’t have to do very much research to get a good understanding of which team is the underdog and who is the favorite.

Soccer

Soccer is one of the largest betting markets in the world, with dozens of leagues to wager on and plenty of fixtures every week. While this might seem like it would make things more complicated, it’s actually to your benefit. Soccer offers up a huge range of betting markets, allowing you to wager on which players will score, how many goals will be scored, who will win the match and more.

 

Because of this wide range of markets, soccer punters can find niche bets that pay well. Most sports only provide a few different options to wager on who will win or what the point total will be, soccer offers up many more options. For example, the betting experts at VegasOdds.com recommend the “both teams to score in the first half” wager because it often provides you with very good payouts if you’re successful, and it’s not the kind of bet you’ll find with many other sports.

 

Since soccer is such a popular sport, there is plenty of information out there that you can easily find that will help you make successful bets on these niche markets. While it is more time consuming to have to look into this information, you can earn a bigger profit than when wagering on a single outcome in another sport. So, you can get great value for your money with little effort when betting on soccer.

Basketball

Basketball is a safe option when it comes to betting, as it is considered a predictable sport. One of the main reasons for this is that the “home court advantage” concept is truer in basketball than in any other sport. This has a huge influence on the outcome on basketball games and helps to inform any betting decisions that you make, so you automatically have valuable information from the outset.

As is the case with tennis, basketball bets are two-way wagers rather than three-way wagers. You can bet on who will win and there is also the option to wager on whether the point total will be higher or lower than a certain number. This means that your odds of winning go from 33% to 50%, and you should be able to read a couple of articles before placing your bet to determine the most successful course of action.

Tennis

Tennis is considered an easy sport to wager on, simply because there are really only two ways to go. Your chances of winning are 50/50, unlike other sports where there are three outcomes. So, inherently, you have a better chance of winning your tennis bets over many other types of sports.

 

Another benefit to betting on tennis is that there are so few variables. In a soccer match, there are many things to consider and over 20 players to think about. In tennis, there are just two players – and, there is usually one player that is highly favored over the other. That is, unless you have two power houses competing against one another. As such, with minimal research, you’ll can learn everything you need to know to make a successful tennis bet.

Sports Betting Tips

As a beginner in the world of sports betting, there are some key rules to remember in order to have a successful career. You should certainly keep these in mind when it comes to deciding which sports to wager on and what bets to make.

 

Firstly, it is always a good idea to stick to one sport. This way, you can learn everything you need to know about the market without having to do extensive research every time you make a wager. You’ll have inherent knowledge about the sport which will help you make more profitable decisions.

 

Next, ensure that you have a dedicated sports betting budget. Money management is important in all types of gambling in order to ensure that you always have a positive outcome. Be sure to set aside a certain amount of money that you will use to wager on sports, and always split your winnings between your bank roll and your bank account.

 

Finally, take the time to shop around. Different sites will offer different odds, so you will want to get the best odds possible for the match that you’re thinking of wagering on. This can make a significant difference in your potential winnings, and many experienced punters do this to maximize their overall profits.
