In addition, football betting is very social, as you can talk about it with your friends and have fun while contemplating and placing your bets.




According to statistics, tennis has now somewhat surprisingly become the second most popular sport to bet on in the UK. Aside from the four major grand slams, tennis offers a wide array of tournaments to bet on all over. Whether it be mens, womens, challenger circuit games or international events like the Davis Cup, there’s so many options. Particularly popular due to its capacity to allow you to make rapid profits on In-Play point, game and set betting, this certainly adds to its appeal.

This summary from the Sportsmole website sums up its rise well, stating: “The sport generates billions of pounds of revenue in betting every year. Not bad for a sport that rarely hits the headlines outside of the four major tournaments of Wimbledon, the US Open, the French Open, and the Australian Open.
