football is probably the most popular sport in the world because in every corner of the world people play football, which means that most matches to bet on with bookmakers are football. After the recent results I've been watching and the number of surprises, I doubted betting on football a bit and I'm trying to avoid...

people love to bet on football!

soccer is the most watched and exciting sport on earth and it has also become a big business, sports betting on soccer is the most popular and I think the halls know it and that is why every year they are growing.

there are many matches and money to bet on one or more houses, but what bothers me are the results. I have unstoppable bad luck and i keep playing. I have no profit at all, but no losses, even if i bet many tickets per month. This has been happening for some time. I hope that at least one or two betting houses will have a license in my country in the next period.

I really like bookmakers that give profitable odds to be able to make a big difference in our earnings, in my country I really like betsson, this bookmaker always gives the best odds in the market, players appreciate it very much.

to attract many players, the odds are very high and you can have a good luck, if you are an experienced bettor. Here you can get money more easily than with poker, but for that you need to know and watch a lot of football. Those who can play at big betting houses like these, it is very good.

to become a great bettor and be always winning you must study the game a lot, it is not easy to be able to predict and hit, that is why the study and practice will make you better and better player.

over/under is very popular and I also love to play it! you can bet on this, watch game and you dont care who will win, how many goals somebody will score, just that you guess for example more then 2,5 goals on game and to win! sometimes its much easier then to bet on winner and if your team get first goal, you again need two goals for win and it would be same if you have bet on goals, but you cant know will they comeback or not!
 Spadea27/01/2023 13:15:39 GMT
Football is number one in sports betting
 dule-vu27/01/2023 13:20:36 GMT
yes, it is!
 geseco1203/02/2023 18:13:32 GMT
The most followed sport by far is soccer and I think that is the reason why more sports betting rooms are coming out every year, for sure this ranking will change at the end of the year.
 CALICUL03/02/2023 18:18:09 GMT
it's hard to get results in football and i'm too unlucky, because i lose many matches with a goal after the 90th minute. I hope to look for another method and talk to other friends, maybe i'll succeed better.
