5 Sports You Can Bet On!
Want to talk about ping pong - or rather, its more correct term, table tennis, seriously? A good place where you can do that is Eastern Europe. It also happens to be where plenty of American gamblers place their bets.
The number of bets on table tennis has been astounding. According to Johnny Avello, the head of DraftKings Sportsbook, the numbers are very high. But in April 2020, during the height of the pandemic, it was the reality. However, aside from ping pong, what other sports have been the subject of betting?
Some of them are:
Golf is a simple and enjoyable game. Featuring often in movies as a pastime of the rich, golf is a game wherein players use various clubs to hit balls into a series of holes on a course in as few strokes as possible. As a game, golf cannot and does not use a standardized playing area. Rather, you can move from one spot to another while playing golf.
The location where you play golf is a golf course. It usually carries 18 or 9 holes, alongside wide regions of terrain that each contain a cup, which is the hole that receives the ball
During the pandemic, betting on golf could have been more stable. Golf is considered a contact sport and has been listed as futures-oriented.
If sports betting is not your thing, you can bet on a slot machine online.
Invented by Dr. James Naismith in UCLA, basketball has become one of the most exciting and popular sports games ever. The game of basketball aims to score the most points in the basket. Although a victory for basketball may be measured by points scored through shooting, dunking, and three-pointer shots, it is also a tactical game.
Tennis is played individually against a single opponent (singles) or between two teams of two players each (doubles). In addition, it is a racket sport. Anyone can play tennis - even those who are wheelchair users. Some historians believe tennis originates from 12th-century northern France, where a ball was struck with the palm.
It was also believed that during the 16th century, the game finally began to use rackets. The game then started to be called "tennis.” The game derives its name from the French term tenez, which can be translated as "hold!", "receive!" or "Take!" The latter is an interjection used as a call from the server to his opponent.
Rugby is a popular sport. With rugby, you play with an oval ball by two teams of 15 players (in rugby union play) or 13 players (in rugby league play). The sport’s lore dictates that the sport was invented in 1823 by William Webb Ellis, a pupil at Rugby School. He had defied the conventions of the day that the ball may only be kicked forward, to pick up the ball and run with it in a game, thus creating the different handling game of rugby football.
Motorsport is a collective term. It refers to the sporting events which involve motorized vehicles. It also pertains to forms of competition of two-wheeled motorized vehicles under the banner of motorcycle racing and includes off-road racing such as motocross. Race officials facilitate motorsports events.
These are some of the funner sports which you can bet on. Some might be new, but they are also fun to watch.
