Today, punters can bet on almost anything and at betting sites you will find everything from mainstream sports like football, boxing, and basketball to esports. The options are many and there is something for all preferences. 

To break it down a bit, we thought we would present some of the most popular sports to bet on in the US and briefly outline what you can find among these categories:

Football

Football is the most popular sport in the US, both in terms of TV ratings, the revenue it generates, and the number of punters it attracts. Even though it is only played for six months of the year, during that time fans and wagers are spoiled for the fast-paced action that the NFL provides, plus the sheer number of games played during the NCAA football season. In terms of betting on football, there are many bookies to choose between and a wide range of betting options available.

Boxing

Boxing is one of the oldest and most popular sports of all time. The sport has in many ways set the bar and the standard for what modern martial art should look like. Boxing was also one of the earliest sports to start seeing odds from bookmakers, and betting on the sport is still incredibly popular today. Virtually every online bookmaker in the world offers odds on boxing. When it comes to betting on boxing, punters have a wide range of tournaments to bet on and wagering options such as Over/Under Round bets, To-Win, and Double Chance.

Basketball

Basketball is one of the most practiced sports in the world. The most entertaining form of basketball can be found in North America. There is only one team from Canada in the league. The NBA, which is the name of the league, has the best basketball players in the world. Punters can access a wide range of betting options in basketball and will be able to turn to practically any American bookmaker if they wish to bet on the sport.

Soccer

Although soccer is more popular in Europe, many American bookmakers still offer odds on the sport. After all, football is one of the most popular sports in the world, so you will find plenty of different tournaments to wager on and different betting markets to try out. With the World Cup coming up this winter, there is a lot to look forward to.

Bet responsibly

It is important to bet responsibly, otherwise you can risk losing large amounts of money and in the worst case end up with a gambling addiction. To avoid this, place your bets at betting sites that are safe, with features that allow you to take control of your gambling. You also need to think about setting a budget that you then stick to.
