Everyone loves betting on sports: NFL, the NBA and major college athletics; however, there are plenty of sports that fall outside that scope. They may not be the events that get the opening block on the sports shows, but they are available for your viewing pleasure and to bet on, nonetheless.

To Take Into Consideration Before Betting on Sports

With some of the sports we’ve gone over, you’ll find that, since they’re not quite as popular or revenue-generating, there won’t be as many outlets writing and reporting on the events as for major sports, or even golf, tennis or horse racing.

Don’t bet what you don’t know. The Olympics can be trendy every few years. But don’t take an athlete or a country blindly in an event if you haven’t done any research on.

How To Bet On:

UFL

UFL stands for the United Football League, previously known as the XFL (Extreme Football League). It’s a professional American football league which resulted last year from the merger of the XFL and USFL, and kicked off March 30th, 2024. The opening match featured last year's victors, the Birmingham Stallions and Arlington Raiders. The league is designed as an exciting alternative to the NFL, with unique rules, a faster pace, and a season that typically runs during the NFL offseason, filling in the gap to make for continuous betting action year-round. The UFL's distinctive rules can influence game outcomes differently than in the NFL. For instance, its approach to overtime, kickoffs, and point-after attempts can lead to unexpected results and betting opportunities. When betting, start small and stay informed; begin with modest bets to get a feel for UFL betting news and put to good use those UFL odds.

CFL

Betting on the CFL is just like betting on the NFL and college football. You’ll have a spread with one team likely favored and the other an underdog. You’ll also be able to bet on the total with CFL odds , and on whether there will be more or less points than the specific combined total, which the sportsbook has already set for that game. You can also bet on one team to win straight up, (no spread to cover); it’s also popular to bet on future events such as which team will win the Grey Cup, the CFL’s championship trophy.

Tennis

In Tennis, one can bet futures with tennis odds , let's say on a player who will win the tennis tournament they're participating in, or you can bet on players in individual matches. There are also spreads in tennis. If Rafael Nadal is -1.5 against Andy Roddick for example, it means Nadal would have to win by two games. You can also bet the total of games played.

Golf

In golf, they participate in tournaments almost weekly. You can bet on an individual golfer to win the tournament outright with specific golf odds before the start of that week’s tournament, as well as live-bet them as the days go on. You can also bet one golfer to outperform another particular golfer, as well as the highest-finishing player of certain nationalities.

Horse Racing

To the average bettor, horse racing may just be three major races a year. To others, it’s a year-round way of life. For some, it’s all they ever gamble on. For the big races like the Kentucky Derby, you’ll be able to find them on many sportsbooks; however, random races in Yonkers, NY on a Wednesday afternoon will require bettors to go to a race book rather than a sportsbook. Keep up with us for horse racing news that will really make your day at the races!

ESports

Esports is still incredibly new on the radar. Very popular in particular circles and online, the great majority of Esports is not televised, which makes it harder for the average sports bettor to get on board. People like to bet on the sports they can and like to watch. Some people bet on sports only because it’s what’s on television that night. While definitely growing, Esports has yet to see its peak in popularity. Meanwhile, there are plenty of odds and standings for great Esport bets.

Olympic Games

The Olympics are an event held every two years, for winter and summer. Those are great times for Olympic games betting. Bettors can wager on individual sporting events, while also being able to bet on the country that will win the most total medals and/or the most gold medals.

Cycling

Betting on cycling to many is like betting on the Indy 500. It’s the biggest race in its respective sport, but after that big-named event -in this case the Tour De France - popularity, buzz and viewership go down. And don't forget cycling betting is a really cool side action!
