Sports betting has been a big part of sports since the dawn of sports themselves. The attraction of betting on sports is hard to overcome for some, and others, don’t even see the point in it!



In the United States, the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 makes it ier to operate a betting, gambling or wagering scheme in most of the States that make up the United States. The States that are exempt are Delaware, Nevada, Montana and Oregon. However, although these four states allow gambling, only Nevada and Delaware allow sport betting.


Sport betting generally increases people’s interest in sports, although some people fear that sports gambling threatens the integrity of sport.



The sports betting odds are presented either in decimal odds, fractional odds or moneyline odds. Decimal odds are favored in Canada, Australia and continental Europe. Fractional odds are favored by bookmakers in the United Kingdom, and Moneyline odds are favored in the United States.


Some people make a decent living out of sports betting by utilizing information on the sports they are betting on.
