 article about Three Sports You May Never Have Bet On Before

If you like a flutter, there are so many options available you to today within a sportsbook.

American football, basketball and soccer and obviously three of the most popular sports to have punt on, however, here is a look a three sports you may not have tried but can give you a great amount of fun.


Darts is a sport which is continuing to grow around the world. The world's leading players now travel to North America, Asia and Australia to play in front of thousands of fans. The World Championship in December through to January remains the leading event and was won last year by Rob Cross. As elaborated on, Cross prevailed for the first time in his career when he beat the legend that is Phil Taylor in the final 7-2. One of the great things about betting on a darts match is that there are so many different markets to get involved in outside of the standing outright betting. Punters can bet on the highest checkout, who will hit the most 180s, the correct score in the game and so many more markets. You can also place a punt on who will win the tournament before it begins and often in-play. Michael van Gerwen tops the early betting at +200 to win the 2019 World Championship where the world number one is bidding for his third title since he moved to the PDC.

Greyhound Racing

At a typical meeting, there will be 13 races or so for you to get involved in with just 20 minutes between each contest. What is more, they on average last around 30 seconds so you don't have long to learn your fate.
