Baseball is a massively popular sport in the US and in most countries around the world. While there are plenty of local tournaments and games that you can bet on, Major League Baseball (MLB) games form the basis of all online baseball betting. Running for six months of the year, the MLB consists of 30 teams that each play over 50 games each season. This means there are hundreds of games that you can be betting on throughout the year. Each game provides plenty of action, drama and loads of betting opportunities. MLB culminates in the World Series game which sees the two best teams play for the season trophy.
Played in the US and parts of Canada, American football is one of the most exciting contact sports on the planet. Even though it is not played in most countries around the world, it still tops the list of most popular betting sports. With American Football, the NFL (National Football League) is where almost all the betting takes place. The NFL consists of 30 teams divided equally between the NFC and the AFC. The teams play a 4-week preseason before commencing with a 17-week regular season. From there, a 12-team elimination playoff is held where the two top teams compete in the Super Bowl, the biggest sporting event in the world.
While not as popular as its American counterpart, Canadian Football is still an action-packed sport with plenty of future and in-play betting opportunities. The game itself stems from British Rugby and it has one or two small differences to American Football. The Canadian Football League governs the sport for both the amateur and professional league. The regular season runs from January to November and culminates with the Grey Cup, which is the Canadian version of the Super Bowl.
Considered to be the pinnacle of motorsport, Formula 1 is as much fun to watch as it is to bet on. The FIA Championship season runs from March to November each year. The Championship features 20 track-based races, which are held in locations all around the world. Bets can be placed on each individual Grand Prix or on the season winner for the driver’s championship or the constructor’s championship. It’s high octane betting at it best and at Betway you’ll find all the F1 markets you can imagine, and more!
Having gained traction in the US, Basketball has become one of the most popular team sports in dozens of countries around the world. Played in China, Africa, Australia, and the Americas, Basketball offers up all sorts of betting opportunities. Most of the bets are placed on the NBA, although there are plenty of other leagues like Germany’s Bundesliga or Australia’s National Basketball league that overlap, providing year-round betting action.
Tennis is possibly the most competitive of all the individual sports. Played in just about every country in the world, tennis is ideal for online betting with bettors able to place bets on individual sets, games matches or tournaments. While there are dozens of tournaments happening throughout the year, the biggest and most prestigious tournaments are the four Grand Slams, which include the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open.
